Daniel Portman

After a long ride of experimenting, he ended up with a bunch of tracks. Daniel went back to his small bedroom studio, made another bunch of tracks and along the way he stumbled into the porn industry.

Debonair

The cinematic sounding music by this Swiss duo features a transparent und well-tempered mix of acoustic and electronic elements. In March 2006, "somewhere, midair" by debonair was officially released in Switzerland (vacuum records / recrec). This release will hopefully be available for download in a large number of countries soon. The music on the 14 tracks invites to quietly be discovered by listeners all over the world: melancholy song-sketches, epic atmospheric instrumentals and tracks experimenting with motives, united as a whole by trademark debonair harmonies.

Blasted

After sharing the stage in East Europe with Pro-Pain and Zuul FX, Blasted release their first full-length, “ALCHEMY”. Produced by themselves, “Alchemy” packs plenty of energy and neck-breaking riffs and hopefully would drive you nuts! Their way quite impressively evolved since the story began in 2000, in Martigny (CH) when Yomgui (bass) joined Nico (guitar) and Simon (drums). Their common love for heavy sounds blended with ultimate grooves inspired them to composing their own songs, trying to fill the gap between Pantera and Machine Head.
