Geneva-based trio Sinner DC return with an all- new remix album, featuring 12 new versions and 4 interludes from their 2012 LP ‘Future That Never Happened’.

Far from being a patchwork collection of remixes, ‘Ambient Mixes’ is a brand new album; an 80- minute cinematic trip following the tradition of ambient/chillout albums in the vein of The Orb, Le Coeur, and KLF.
Dropping on Mental Groove Records, home of Luciano and Miss Kittin & The Hacker among others, ‘Ambient Mixes’ comes as Sinner DC have just finished recording ‘MAPS’ – a collaboration with Pete Kember aka Sonic Boom, founding member of legendary neo-psychedelic rock band Spacemen 3.

Having been a key influence on the likes of My Bloody Valentine and producer for MGMT and Panda Bear, Sonic Boom’s involvement marks another milestone for Sinner DC, which will begin in late 2014 with ‘Ambient Mixes’.

‘Ambient Mixes’ is released November 2014 on digital, CD and 2 separate vinyl.

I look back at 25 years of Mental Groove Records – 25 years of Swiss music history with Alpenflage / Red Bull Music Academy Radio.
Mental Groove was at the forefront of Switzerland’s burgeoning rave scene in the early nineties, was responsible for some of the earliest Swiss house and techno releases, and became a driving force behind some of the countries most exciting electronic experiments of the past two decades.
Over the course of the past 25 years Mental Groove has released music from a diverse range of artists: from formative releases of now globetrotting superstar Luciano, to the early electronic experiments of Swiss techno pioneers Marco Repetto and Stefan Riesen under their Synectics guise, to the Ethiopia-via-Geneva jazz explorations of The Imperial Tiger Orchestra. Combine those sounds with the shoegaze adventures of Sinner DC, the John Carpenter-esque synth exploitations by Worship, and the Balkan-tinged electro-pop of Kadebostany, and the Mental Groove back catalogue is as rich and varied as you’re likely to find.
Now we listen to 25 tracks from the label’s catalog, and break down the past, present and future of Mental Groove Records’ vivid history.
