3DFLY, featuring Dirk Da Davo (The Neon Judgement/Neon Electronics) releases EP!
3DFLY is a one-off project of Dirk Da Davo (known from his New Wave past with The Neon Judgement) and Make Makena, who shared productions and stages with, amongst others, The The, Screaming Trees, Bootsy Collins and many more. They met a few years ago, there was a spark and they decided that when the right time came they would start a musical adventure together... and the time came. They decided to call their project “3DFLY”.
3DFLY fuses groovy basslines with stunning beats and rebellious lyrics that are not pulling any punches. Keep an eye on 3DFLY!
A remarkable meeting of two musicians.

The Arch announces new album concept and will release one brand new song every month of 2018!
In 2016, The Arch released Fates, some say one of their best albums so far!
The band played the biggest festivals like M’era Luna, Wfest, Young & Cold festival in Augsburg and headline shows in Paris, London and Cologne. They also joined Skinny Puppy and Clan of Xymox in den Haag and Oberhausen.
"We didn’t stop making music”. We had so many ideas and songs that we wanted to make a successor for Fates.
In December 2018 we will release a new album with 12 new songs but we want to release each song seperately through the year. Every month a new one will be launched on itunes/spotify through Trisol. Each song will be created, mixed and finished before we start other ones. Why? Each song is a world on its own: a different story, atmosphere and sound. We want to have another approach than the usual, when a band goes into the studio with an amount of songs, and finish them as a whole, with the same global sound.
In a way, we start an album without being an album. And also not knowing how it will sound at the end. That makes it a whole different approach. And it makes us curious. It’s like an adventure.
In the end we have 12 songs that are also inspired by the month we are releasing it.
Winter will be different than Autumn. Maybe darker. Maybe warmer. We don’t know. Every song gets special artwork and sleeve so they all look like singles. We are also working on video material to release with every track."
The first song: ‘Blood Crystals’ (release date 02/02/2018)
"After reading ‘The Girl Who Played with Fire’, the second novel in the Millennium series by the Swedish writer, Stieg Larsson, we were inspired to write that song. At the end Lisbeth Salander is buried alive. When you are listening to our song, you got to imagine what is happening, when you’re buried alive yourself and you suddenly realize it. "

Today, exactly 39 years ago, John Peel broadcast the first Peel Sessions, performed by Joy Division
Today, exactly 39 years ago John Peel broadcast the first Peel Sessions, a studio live session performed and recorded by Joy Division at the BBC Maida Vale studios in London on January 31st, 1979.
Below the setlist of this recording & broadcast session.
She's Lost Control
At the time of broadcasting, all performed songs were previously unreleased.
Later that same year, on 10th December, John Peel broadcast a second recording session by Joy Division
7 years later, in 1986, the first 'The Peel Sessions' EP, was released by Strange Fruit Records. The version of Transmission featured on this EP is one of the few recordings available where both Ian Curtis and Bernard Sumner played guitars at the same time.
The EP spent thirteen weeks on the UK Indie Chart, peaking at number 4.
The release of a second volume of the Joy Division Peel Sessions would follow in 1987.
Below you can listen to the original repeat tranmission broadcasted by John Peel on 5th April.
Editors unveil new single 'Magazine', taken from forthcoming album 'Violence'.
A dizzyingly bright, yet barbed opening salvo, 'Magazine' marks an intriguing stylistic shift for Editors. The single, the band's first in three years, is an anthemic pop song that savagely attacks the empty gestures and posturing of those in power. Built around a rousing chorus, swelling keys and crunching, industrial chords, 'Magazine' is a muscular, dynamic call-to-arms. Sure to whet the appetite for 'Violence' and strike an emotional chord with their legions of fans, 'Magazine' demonstrates an ambition from Editors that their latest work is destined for the biggest stages this summer.
Talking about 'Magazine', Editors frontman Tom Smith says ''Magazine is a pointed finger aimed at those in power...some corrupt politician or businessman...a character, and a tongue in cheek poke at the empty posturing and playing to the masses of the power hungry."
'Violence' is the sixth album from Editors, and follows 2015's acclaimed 'In Dream'. It is produced by Leo Abrahams (Wild Beasts, Florence & The Machine, Frightened Rabbit) and Editors with additional production from Benjamin John Power (Blanck Mass, Fuck Buttons) and mixed by Cenzo Townshend, except 'Hallelujah (So Low)' mixed by Alan Moulder.
The 'Magazine' video was shot in Amsterdam by renowned photographer, director and long term Editors collaborator Rahi Rezvani.
