Nordic woods are a dangerously primitive place. Fueled with madness and induced delirium Frak land on planet Lux. Three slow, acid numbers with a barbaric, crude attitude. Relentless drums. Fierce, hypnotic synthesizers that get you lost in your own mind. Suddenly sinister, disastrous images populate your consciousness. And then one last strange, twisted wave track. New places, new adventures.

of Lux Rec
When something new starts it’s because there’s a need to wander further, to cut deeper, MRT is the result of it.

Lux Rec at Kauz
Friday 27 March will be hitting Kauz again. This time, after Momentform, we’ll host Aurora Halal. Coming from New York she’s rising high with her dark mixture of techno, hause and wave. She’ll play live, coming down with all her machines. Analog is the way.
The Dying Lights
Lux Rec enters its fifth year of existence. A time of adventures in electronic sounds, exploring the margins and the darkest corners. To celebrate all victories and failures Cosmo & Faber compiled this release, the number 23, collecting material from old acquaintances and musicians that are new to the label.
The Dying Lights is a collection of tracks that reflects the path Lux Rec followed these past years, acid, low-fi, analog rudimental techno, melodies of pain and sorrow. Six tracks on two vinyls, from light to dark, to accompany you, soothe and haunt you, to the only known end. Dust.

Lux Rec at Kauz
Saturday 17th January we’ll have our first party at Kauz Club in Zürich. To celebrate our release number 22 there will be Momentform playing live for the first time. Alongside, Daniele Cosmo and Fabian Riccio will dj. From 10 pm till 6 am. The record will be out Monday 19th.
And so Lux Rec continue to reach out for all those ephemeral, eery noises which are so dear to them. Unlit corners on half emptied dance floors. Give in to suffer, loss and sadness. Embrace it. Believe.
Lux Rec’s first record for 2015 is a dark and moody affair coming from Momentform, a French musician that has no fear to plunge into obscurity, melancholy, a somber look into memories that are too painful to forget. Yet, he transformed all those postcards from the past into listening and dance material. Our last dance together. Turn off the lights when leaving.
Shatter Cone is a rare imprint that is only known to form in the bedrock beneath meteorites impacts or underground nuclear explosion. It is the eventual evidence that huge pressure has been applied and life as we know it has disappeared. So shaped and recorded, such pressure, has been pressed on vinyl and delivered to you. Enjoy.
Helena’s appearance on Lux Rec makes perfect sense, especially given the label’s focus “on the roots of dance music exploring elements from the early electronic scene.” Her fascination with primitive electronics and wave, and her hardware approach fits nicely with that of Murphy Jax, Jared Wilson and Echo 106, who have also released on the label.
Looking into the distance is always a frightening experience. Over fences, beyond the known territory, savage grounds await. The ones that cannot dance to that foreign rhythm, cannot move at the same pace, are doomed to swirl in a frenzy panic and die. Nerves and muscles are needed, and good lungs to keep momentum. Thus is this record, number 20 in the Lux Rec catalog. An attempt to increase disorder and confusion to see what ultimately comes from it.
Savage Grounds are CCO and Daniele Cosmo, co-owner of Lux Rec. A techno related outfit to explore a darker, noisier and more menacing sound. The EP has been realised by using only three machines. A Roland 808, a modular synthesizer and a Roland Space Echo. Every track has been recorded live with a minimum of post processing. Come over the fence and dance with the savages.
