Requiem Records is a label promoting electronic, ambient and postindustrial music for 20 years already. The music we release is full of subtlety and mystery, it is archaic, but created by means of modern instruments, it is indefinable. Requiem does not base on mutual admiration correlations, and often, as the only one in Poland, enables unknown artist to present and promote. It confirms that so-called "underground" involves valuable musicians who have no reason to be ashamed confronting mainstream composers.

Cross-sectional record of this very interesting group, led by Dariusz Krzywański , with whom Katarzyna Nosowska began her career. 

Part One (1982-1986) presents the great beginnings of recording activity. Definitely a greeting to a direction of experiments close to Throbbing Gristle. Yet, this is not an aggressive, biting or noisy music. The artist in a continuous search, took care of melody, arrangement tastes and traditional composition. A multitude of ideas as in recordings from 30 years ago. 

Second record (1989-1992) is already a designated trail. Cool-wave atmosphere mixed with a heavy rhythm of drum machines. Powerful bass interacts here with ambient, which oscillates between sequential electronics and industrial. Lyricism and form of expression in texts gives a specific character to the whole. 

This is a must for every self-respecting music in search lover, mixed with a pinch of the best achievements of the late gothic scene of 80/90.

“Fujarki” (“Fifes”) is intended to rely on the sound of wind instruments, which carries us into the world of enchanting lyricism. Subcutaneously pulsating enormous energy finds an outlet in a disciplined, extremely tasteful compositions. The dynamic combination of imagination straight from the world of minimal music of Steve Reich, but also atmospheric records of Coil.

A hard, thick and intense electronic backing, unconventional, live drummer's performance, interesting vocal, ranging over a wide scale and different styles. It's highly ambitious music, going beyond the pleasure of playing together.

Something for pigeonholing fans, a forgotten band – Dusseldorf. They were industrial electroromantics, sympatizing with new wave, making music over two decades ago. Sullen, inspired poetics of their lyrics – filled with industry and noise apotheosis, makes the album full of great lirism. It seems soft industrial had its exponents in Poland and it is never too late for such intriguing discoveries...

Death Trip is full of dark drone sounds, pouring noise and dark tasteful harmonies. The music emotilonally moves between the electrifing tensions and mixes with feeleing of an sensitive underskin shot so one can feel like being caught in a pre-death trap.

 requiem rec 36/2011

cd | ekopak | 76 min

Some pieces the album features are close to tribal, some other bring to mind 4AD productions. You are dragged into the hypnotic landscape, filled with catharis, through its false mirror. Unexpected tones and coloures or rather tastes of sounds make that music unlikely to be fed up with.

Music in crudo. Placed in boxes, filed in piles, prisms of rippling little things. New entertainment. Persistent twists and turns of the mouth-organ resonate with archaic electronic sounds, totally recomposed phrase with shreded speech. Harsh, genuine beauty.

Start the weekend at GDR (German Democratic Republic) - like discotheque, get to know the archives, go back in time to see things that are seemingly gone. You'll get cought within the prop-pop and Stasi Kunst sphere by those veterans of the constabulary industrial. You'll be brainwashed in a pouring rain of pulsating, uncontrollable soc-disco. You'll be used as a dancing, fainting dummy and be taken for your last ride in a wartburg's boot.

The clash of HATI's acoustic explorations with avant-garde, rhythmical electronica signed by LAL (2nd Hand Beatnix, The Witcher). It's one of the most electronically sounding projects ever done by HATI, which – as a band focused on playing live – uses mainly acoustic instruments. The mood of music changes from ambient, meditation and transcendence to experiment and rhythmical madness. promomix

cd | 40 min

Music inspired by the birth of new life. Audible influences of minimal music and the electro-acoustic school of noise generation. All of this is typically atmospheric for Spika and, while there are some pulsating moments, the listener is relocated to a distant and forgotten world, but familiar to all of us.

This project was born out of fascination with 8-bit computer's sounds, especially the whine of a program being loaded from tape. "Disco Polo" blends youthful fascinations with classic disco (Mili Vanili, Eurobeat), punky energy (Peaches) and synth-driven electro (Kraftwerk) in a tongue-in-cheek manner. From the very beginning this record won't give you a moment to catch a breath, transporting you back to the 80s without loosing a modern dancefloor feeling.

The band follows the path of krautrockish, trance inducing beats, minimal music, deep dub pulse and enigmatic murmurs (Tortoise, Mogwai). Country/blues songwriting goes hand in hand with such distant stylistics as new electronica, musique concrete or ubiquitous joyful experiment (The Residents).

This is the latest album of Poles from the U.S. very personal with sentimental spleen. Narcotic trance, sonic magic full of references to explosive mixture of trip hop, new wave, illbient and postindustrial. A steamroller of heavy rythm and strong base – fusion of new sounds with experimental acoustics.

This is a new album of the legendary Polish EBM band, inspired by the research on speech synthesis from 20s and 30s of the last century. Unique and stretchy structure (resembling Pan Sonic) with a hint of post industrial and minimalistic ambient plus a finishing made of the special vocal effects.

Style close to that of the Morr Music performers (e.g. Lali Puna, Isan). Includes modern, subtle and charming instrumental electronics. Cocky in places, scratchy and full of rock expression. The music intruigues through its melody and sound, sometimes it even gets nostalgic, especially its lirycs do.

One of the most significant Polish electronic groups existing already for over a decade. They pace up their own path since the very beginning, improving and polishing the vibes of Berlin school (Tangerine Dream, K. Schulze). Their most recent album, however, is full of surprises...

Strong, stepping loops, base percussion sequences with wide ambient landscapes stack inbetween, noisy distortions, pulsating sounds on the verge of tribal dance (B. Laswell, Scorn, Different State). Very hipnotic and trance inducing on the whole.

Two coexisting and dependent worlds. First being tasteful, warm, with abstract ambient of various murmurs, whispers with tone of guitar and piano melodies (H. Czukay, Art Zoyd).
