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.

Lux Rec Feature
and a mix
Igloo magazine has been kind enough to ask us for a feature on their blog. Robbie Geoghegan sat with us, and after a set of questions, delivered a great article, where we discuss about Cosmo & Faber, Lux rec, Switzerland and whatnot. We prepared a mix to accompany it. Here’s the article, below the mix. Enjoy!

Journey to Humility
There are so many lessons to be taught in life. Through loneliness, suffering and inaccessible places of the heart. Unspeakable secrets and all that crashing down which leaves no hope, we endure. And as we move forward we learn. Visonia enlightens us with an astonishing EP, a journey into one of the most overlooked emotions, humility. A cold place, uncomfortable and yet so rewarding. Music that makes you strong. Which captures you and soothes you to that secret garden deep inside. Let us take you there.
