Stefan Blomeier took a trip into the unknown. A fast drugged out train to nowhere. This unexpected leap brought us back hazy resonant memories. Flashes of light and dark, tunnels into cold and inhospitable mountains. Trails on a path that grow cold and he got lost. Encounters of the strangest kind. Humans? Animals? Secrets left unsaid. Time passes and no one knows. It is better to move before the night fall. A storm is coming.
Lux Rec once again explores the underground of analog possibilities. Blomeier is a extraordinary musician playing mostly live and recording on tape cassette, not having a plan but letting the music find a way out in itself. So these three tracks came out. Record is limited to 300 copies, download code included.

Lux Rec at LoveStream Pt. 2
Friday 8th March we had a great night at Longstreet Bar in Zurich. Lux Rec got all out with three live and fully analog acts. Beginning with a spaced out CCO set working his Doepfer modular synthesizer, building up with a deep and moody Meschi, which was his first time in Zurich, and ending with a massive sweating and dancing hour from Echo 106, their first live ever! We are very proud of the outcome. Let’s keep it coming.
We’d like to thank you Luki, to give us his LOVESTREAM platform, the night was broadcasted in realtime as well as recorded. Bärbel to organize everything at Longstreet Bar, and of course CCO, Meschi and Echo 106 for their effort and commitment, as well as the records we released from them. See some pictures HERE to have an idea of what it was like, listen the recording below, to hear what you’ve missed.

The next Love Stream will showcase Lux Rec adventures in sound. It will be held Friday 8th March at Longstreet Bar in Zürich, from 10 pm till 4 am as well as live streamed via www.livebeats.com (details will follow).
Three live acts, Meschi, which will come down from London especially for this occasion, CCO, our local favorite, and for the very first time Echo 106. A feast of analog machines, green yellow and red pulsating lights and of course nice, warm, experimental and boundless music. To listen and to dance to. Lux Rec owners D Cosmo and Faber will introduce and close the night.
The evening is by invitation only, entry with flyer, so contact us if you need one.
Faber & D Cosmo
Saturday 16th February, at Zukunft club in Zürich, there has been the first of Lux Rec presents parties. Intergalactic Gary was our guest. These 2 hours are excerpts from Faber, D Cosmo and Intergalactic Gary music live recorded on that night.
If you are in Zurich and it happens that you get hold of the weekly magazine zueritipp, out today, you’ll find a picture of two weirdos smoking cigarettes in front of some old synthesizers. They are indeed D Cosmo & Faber. We have been favored by our friend and great music journalist Bjørn Schaeffner of ROOF FM fame with an article about Lux Rec and the first installment of our party series called Lux Rec presents.
The photo has been taken by Max Zeckau at CCO’s studio. Thank you both.
Alessandro Parisi recorded this album just with a Roland TR-707 and a Roland JX-3P. The result is impressive. For Lux Rec it was worth the label’s first LP. The heritage from his home in the northeast of Italy is clearly present in the music of Parisi. Back in the late seventies and early eighties Pordenone was an industrial city with a vivid underground post punk and wave scene. Cold weather electronics. Fog and darkness surrounds the place to this day and deeply pervades this record: the history of a city called Draconia. Who will do wrong shall not be forgiven. Limited to 250 copies, it comes in a red/gold vinyl double 12-inch outfit. Free download included.
Lux Rec Presents
Zukunft, 16 02 13
Intergalactic Gary needs no presentation. His hyper crafted mixes speak for him. It is almost impossible to spot mistakes in his faultless way of making transitions between a record and another, and his musical selection is wide and rich, picking from various genres and blending them together in an incredible dance floor journey. At ease with the latest productions, he knows and plays a lot of that pioneering dance music from Chicago called house as well. Or he could take you into a deep twisted new wave, cold synthesized atmosphere. Moving up then into a light and warm disco sweat frenzy. His musical knowledge is impressive, and most importantly, he’s not afraid of using it. This Saturday at Zukunft (16 02 13) he will play once again for us, alongside D Cosmo & Faber, expect the unexpected but most certainly expect to dance. Such special combination of quality, deepness, craftsmanship and love for the music is something you do not witness so often, and this is Intergalactic Gary.
Lux Rec presents: is a new series of irregular nights at Zukunft Club curated by D Cosmo of Lux Rec with the idea of bringing DJs and live acts connected to the label and with an open ear for the unheard.
Music for Cosmonauts CD
Following the vinyl EP previously released on Lux Rec, which contained revised excerpts taken from same liveset, this CD includes the entire piece.
