We are pleased to welcome The Motion Epic to conzoom. The Motion Epic is a synth-pop/retrowave project consisting of singer/songwriter Pat DiMeo and producer Andreas Koliakoudakis. DiMeo and Koliakoudakis' music digs deep into the wellsprings of the 1980s pop ethos, focusing on the powerfully melodic analogue synth sound and rhythmic modalities that made 1980s pop music a legendary force in the culture of the time - a powerful legacy that seems to be coming full circle in the second decade of the 21st century.
Due to some delays at the pressing plant, the release of the new Parralox "Holiday'20" album has been postponed from the original 19.03.2021 to 09.04.2021.
The new seasonal album of the Australian project around mastermind John von Ahlen again contains many new cover versions of old classics. The CD version, which will be released exclusively by conzoom, contains various interesting bonuses in the form of remixes, demo versions and instrumentals in addition to the official tracks.
Birmingham Electric is the brainchild of Netherlands-based American expat electronic musician, vocalist and audio engineer Andrew Evans. Birmingham Electric's sound recalls synthpop, post-punk and new wave elements recombined in a modern context. We are delighted to welcome Birmingham Electric to the conzoom family.
In the studio, Birmingham Electric have an ongoing collaboration with Berlin-based techno taste-maker Mark Reeder (Factory Records, MFS Records) and his production partner Micha Adam. Mark and Micha are currently producing Birmingham Electric’s debut album, to be released via conzoom on CD and via MFS Berlin digitally in 2021. Birmingham Electric also work with Malcolm Holmes (the rhythm engine behind Orchestral Manoeuvres In The Dark’s classic albums) - notably on the single “Moving Target,” as well as providing percussion for the original mix of “Light of the World” and remix work soon to be released.
After the current seasonal album by Parralox has already been released in digital form at the end of 2020, "Holiday'20" will also be released as a limited CD version on 19.03.2021.
