New EP “2016” by indie-tronica/post-rock artist Milchstrasse is out now

The new EP called “2016” by indie-tronica/post-rock artist Milchstrasse is out now.

Press text:

„2016“ brings up the most different memories in all of us: it’s been an exciting ride full of up and downs. Viennese Multiinstrumentalist “Milchstrasse” dropped his acoustic take on this most ambivalent year at its most latter point – on December 31st and not without intention: His EP is dedicated to the calm after the storm, to the seconds in between thunder and lightning, moments of sobriety and tranquil. Within those moments of melancholia he finds his own approach between poppy up-beat, sanguine post-rock and eccentric ambient arrangements to send us off, with the most important of feelings: “We’ll all end up well”.

Cuticula – Electronic Press Kit

On this EPK site you can find all information about our Artist Cuticula.


Vienna based producer Cuticula is a multiinstrumentalist and songwriter making beats and pieces largely inspired by hip hop, electronica and the modern mutations and offshoots from the forms from early 90s hip-hop. Key influences on production are artists like Rza, DJ Premier, Timbaland, Aphex Twin, Boards Of Canada, Autechre and more recently the hyperactive nature of trap music. Not sticking to anything formulaic Cuticula likes to create eerie moods and brings a kind of dark ambience to his pieces. Having played live supporting electronic artists such as D.R.U.G.S, Becoming Real, Fuckhead and various international techno Djs in clubs in Vienna like Few Nolder with his side project, the live electronica group Metaxis has brought him live skills and programming abilities. Delving into the world of soundtracks by creating the soundtrack for the short film „Monologue“ has brought him closer to an idea of where he wants to place his more reflective music but he is equally comfortable in the club environment making twisted bangers for heads to step to.

Foglands EP

The lead track “Foglands” is an eerie drum work out with a cold ambience, utilising trap style snappy drums that falter and stall combined with an echoey baseline consisting of mystical monk chants, this roils and boils to make an unnerving instrumental piece.
The second track “Struck” is a more upbeat affair with rushy lead synths embedded in a greasy sawtooth bedding accompanied by heavy slow trap beats.
“Yellow” ups the ante again with drum rolls and electro bass combined in sometimes unorthodox ways with some old skool newsreel samples.
“Stumble”, the closer for the EP brings some melancholic chords in to introduce this soft ambient piece with paper thin phased out looping rusty drums. The track evolves with abrupt changes and energetic drums. The ecstatic piano at the end leaves a lasting impression and ends on a very positive feeling.

Milchstrasse – 2016 EP out now

New EP “2016” by indie-tronica/post-rock artist Milchstrasse is out now

The new EP called “2016” by indie-tronica/post-rock artist Milchstrasse is out now on Flaredust Records

„2016“ brings up the most different memories in all of us: it’s been an exciting ride full of up and downs.
Viennese Multiinstrumentalist “Milchstrasse” dropped his acoustic take on this most ambivalent year at its most latter point
– on December 31st and not without intention: His EP is dedicated to the calm after the storm, to the seconds in between
thunder and lightning, moments of sobriety and tranquil. Within those moments of melancholia he finds
his own approach between poppy up-beat, sanguine post-rock and eccentric ambient arrangements to send us off,
with the most important of feelings: “We’ll all end up well”.

Cuticula about the Video:

A bit of a experimental video I made with the leftover material from the “foglands ep” shooting, plus some music I composed for it. It has some Carpenter vibe in it.


New Website is uuuuuup

So we finally made it

I took me quite a while to relaunch the website, but here it is in full swing. If you wanna stay in the loop, sign up for the newsletter. We will look out for interesting new artists in the next month and try to get as much fresh music on our label as humanly possible (for a fultime working guy like me, doing this music thing as a hobby)
