CYBER10 Elektro Sektor III

The third volume of Elektro Sektor is a great selection of Electro acts, including mainly synthpop and electropop, as common in this genres songs are strongly influenced by sci-fi and 80's mentality. The album starts with synthpop and ends in the electro-ebm area.

Lesnikov-16 is a Stillife (russian darkwave/synth gothic band) side-project. Using the Soviet space exploration romantics and samples from russian 70’s science fiction movies, Lesnikov-16 reveals the ironic synthpop side of Stillife members’ creation.

The band were formed in early spring of 2007 with a name ‘The Limelight.’ In autumn of 2008 the group members decided to change their name to ‘Floor Seven.’ The singer Gleb Sparrow is known by his work at ‘The Limelight’ (Synthpop / IDM). The other members of Floor Seven Wladimir and Mikhail are known by their projects ‘Eonic’ (New Age, Ambient) and ‘N-616’ (Electro-Industrial). The sound of the group can be characterised as the mix of New Wave and Electro.

Glejs (Sweden)
Glejs is a one man project located in the middle parts of Sweden. Ever since he was a little kid he always had a special place in his heart for music and sound. Around summer 1996 he was introduced by a friend to a shareware music program called “Fasttracker 2”… Glejs was immediatly hooked, and later that year he bought himself his first PC. Composing music quickly became his favourite hobby! These days he’s trying to concentrate his music towards the electropop-scene. Very minimal, simple and melodic. For vocals most of the time a vocoder is used. “Robots are so much cooler”, he says…

The Long Division (USA/Canada)
The Long Division is an internet collaboration between David Gonzalez (Los Angeles,California and Jef Vandertogt (Ontario, Canada). After only knowing each other for only a month, they have completed their first EP, “Multiply.” The next EP titled, “Short Trips To Space” was released in July of 08.

Andy Livid (Finland)
Andy Livid is a one man home-made project, started in summer of 2003. I focus on dark, melancholic and melodic electronic music. He says: My style varies somewhere between 80´s darkwave/synthpop to EBM and futurepop. I’m some kind of die-hard tracker musician, because I still make all my stuff with a tracker software. Early works sounds a little bit more tracker-like than the latest ones, maybe because of the technical improvement. However the same atmosphere and mood has been remained throughout the years. My music is made with non-commercial purpose, primarily it’s for my own pleasure. But to my delight I’ve noticed there are some people who finds the same beauty of sadness in it.

Odd Year (USA)
Odd Year is David Gonzalez, an electronic music artist, programmer, remixer and producer. Other projects include, The Long Division and Drop and Solo.
Odd Year will feature guest vocalists, such as the first release (“Days Like This”), which features vocals from the very talented Loren Radis (aka Each Passing Day). You can Purchase “Days Like This”. Recently won the grand prize for my remix of Weezer’s track, “Love is the Answer“. The grand prize is to collaborate with lead singer/songwrite of Weezer, Rivers Cuomo.
Also co-wrote a track with Coury Palermo that was featured in the second volume of Barnes and Noble Beauty series. The track is called, “Headline“.
