PAN/SCAN “Cinematic Lies” (Cine 17)
Part movie score, part library music, part accoustic sculptures: the debut album “Cinematic Lies” from PAN/SCAN is a trip into the wide world of soundtrack music, evoking many different scenes and set pieces. From furious action to nightmarish horror, from zombiesque soundscapes to the opening credits of a fictional serial, there’re all varieties of cinematic music represented, most of them with a delightful touch of the 80s. Hardly a reminiscence you can’t find on this longplayer. PAN/SCAN took a deep musical bow to many iconic composers like John Carpenter, Christopher Young, Tangerine Dream, Goblin or Fabio Frizzi.
This will be a 180g Vinyl available as LP/CD Set, 500 ltd. Edition in total, 250 black Vinyl, 250 black & blue A/B Side mixed color (only available from Cineploit direct), all housed in polylined Innersleeves.
VIDEOGRAM “Gladiatori dell´Apocalisse” Gatefold MLP (Exploit 10)
Hot on the heels of the well-received “Camp Blood” 10″ picture disc, Magnus Sellergren, aka Videogram, set out to expand his sounds with the Italian-titled eight-track post-apocalyptic EP “Gladiatori dell’Apocalisse”. Intended as a mini-soundtrack for an imaginary 1980’s genre effort, Videogram drew inspiration from such vast and varied sources as Goblin’s “Buio Omega”, Paul Hardcastle, Claudio Simonetti’s solo soundtrack work of the 1980’s, novelty disco tracks and Piero Umiliani; effortlessly blending them together to create a sound that is truly his own. Not the first effort on this genre (post-apocalyptic tracks appeared on both his “S/T” digital debut and “Pre-Cert” on Cineploit), this all-new EP sees a technical and compositional growth from the artist, creating a new and exciting path for soundtrack-influenced music! If you’re into dark and interesting synth wave, check Videogram out. Inspired by ’80s post-apocalyptic and exploitation films, this music perfectly personifies the glory of analogue action and horror. I’m a fan of Videogram for life…and beyond! – david j. moore, author of WORLD GONE WILD: A SURVIVOR’S GUIDE TO POST-APOCALYPTIC MOVIES and THE GOOD, THE TOUGH, AND THE DEADLY: ACTION MOVIES AND STARS.
This 8 Track Mini-LP will be housed in a wonderful stylish Gatefold sleeve and on 180g Splatter Vinyl housed in polylined Innersleeves. Ltd. Edition of 500 copies, no CD!
