DJ Home Movies No surprise here. Just another fantastic release of Növö and Flood Veyor's remix, taking the space rocket dark electro tune "The Shortwaves" and lacing it up with mad-science vibes to create a cyberpunk pumper. A must-have for those underground dystopian dancefloors or unknown cosmic drifters. Favorite track: The shortwaves (Mass propaganda mix by Flood Veyor).

On “The Shortwaves”, his 5th full length album under the NÖVÖ moniker, veteran electronic music artist Laurent Boudic plunged us into the obscure and mysterious world of shortwaves and radio weirdness, becoming the very first musician to completely dedicating 11 tracks of modern electronic music to shortwave radio.

Today, the Paris-based artist strikes deeper and reveals a parallel creepy world he assembled in collaboration with some selected artists from the electronic, ambient & industrial scene. Constructed around the album’s title song “The Shortwaves”, this new “Parallel” EP completes and intensifies the dramatic feel of the album through rising alarming beats and mystifying atmospheres reinforcing the tenseness and depth associated with shortwave radio and number stations in general.

Next to a shorter “7” edit” version by NÖVÖ himself, “The Shortwaves” takes a coldwave melancholic twist with the noir and tortured reinterpretation by BLACK EGG who added a chaotic extra-dimension through some melancholic additional vocals. Studio guru FLOOD VEYOR – long time partner in crime of Laurent Boudic – comes next and shines again with his “Mass Propaganda” version adding some upbeat technoid depth to the song in his very own unparalleled style. COMMUTER are the next guests on this release for a ripping cocktail of radioactive KRAFTWERKian synths meet techno body music explosion. And last but not least, Brazilian Gil OS (ex-MORGUE) delivers a darker old-school EBM remix with his new AMORPHOUS project…

NÖVÖ adds to this poignant “Shortwaves” sonic journey 2 exclusive unreleased bonus tracks with “Interfearence” and “Zero Zero” which both add some more slow-tempo heavy intensity to these vibrant and bursting creepy electronic tunes with an industrial touch.

For the sake of comparisons, NÖVÖ was recently compared to bands in the likes of THE NORMAL, early FRONT 242, KRAFTWERK, DUET EMMO, THE KLINIK… Check it out by yourself and propagate these addictive NÖVÖ claustrophobic soundwaves without moderation.
