HERZSCHLAG & MECANICA present
“The new innocence”, DIE SELEKTION’s self description, is the first of many enthralling contradictions raised by the young band. Fast beats, cutting bass lines, bleak and subcooled synth layers, and then – the most unusual instrument for this genre: The trumpet. The plain brilliancy of how this works out leads to one question only: Why has no one done this before?
We live in the kingdom of noise, information overflow, misinformation & disorientation.
Ever rushing, we grasp disconnected words, unfinished thoughts, repeated ideas.
We consume relationships, sandwiches, art.
We want freedom but don’t know how to be free.
We close up in the world of definition, scheme, calculation and manipulation.
Post-modernism, post-punk, post-communism, great post.
Overload’s overload, tiredness of being tired.
Vile visions, despaired in a frowning black tower of pain. Concealed yearns of a desolate heart, trying to scratch that unscratchable rotting itch from within. Centuries of sorrow drenched in gloomy electronics that palpitate like human passions.
Arising from the underground of Neukölln in Berlin, the Polish-Danish duo 77™ is bringing their pulsating beats and bass lines together with vintage synthesizers and analog drum machines, as well as customized low-bit machines.
DJs Hanzel, Jaakko, Anaesthesija

Mecanica label started 12 years ago as a record store in Mexico but the idea for a label was born last year somewhere between Mexico City and Los Angeles. Their first step was release for Americ some european bands like Lebanon Hanover and Selofan. Later on, Tying Tiffany joined with an EP and Soft Metals with a great remix album with works from some friends like Bestial Mouths, L-Sedition, Silent Servant, Jesse Ruins and Tying Tiffany too. Now, Mecanica is moving forward with two new promising acts, 77tm and Alles, and more projects to come…
