Pete Swanson & Rene Hell were strong contenders for our favourite electronic artists of 2011. The former’s incredible Man With Potential made sweet romance with the most abrasive palette possible, combining heavyweight industrial techno and penetrative electronic drones with a startling and quite unfathomable accessibility. The latter’s beautiful The Terminal Symphony was a magnum synth opus, veering from coruscating arpeggios to glittering dreamscapes into deep, soporific ecstasies. If you haven’t heard either of them yet just click on the links above to treat yourselves to a treacly teet of a treat.
However, if you’re already au fait with the men in question no such introduction will be necessary. Simply bask in the joy of the news concerning the re-release of their excellent split LP, Waiting For The Ladies, courtesy of the Brussels-based Shelter Press. Thanks guys. Great work.
