veerletakino Most apt title ever. This album pleases thoroughly, while at the same time teasing us with the promise of what the artist will deliver in the future. <3 Favorite track: Horizontal Rain.

Madacon I think that "things You Don´t Say" and "The Apology" are your greatest pieces so far. Keep the good work up man love your songs. Favorite track: Things You Don't Say.

Profpatsch You hear the deep synthesized kicks, the remarkable voice and you instantly know who you are listening to.
With his debut, d.notive releases four astonishingly low-tempo dance-like songs. High point is the last track, although its general feel isn’t entirely unheard of. Favorite track: Horizontal Rain.

[Verse 1] I know we've been apart, it can't be helped. I need a place to start so we can move on. Appealing to your heart will get us in line. The message to impart: that we'll do just fine. [Chorus] Don't go breaking us apart. I think you'll see... If you're breaking my heart, we can agree... That by breaking us apart, the loser is me... By breaking my heart, there's nowhere to be. [Verse 2] I know you're just a girl, and I'm just a boy I've given you my world, am I still a toy? I need a way to come and play today. ... but you still hurt me. Please don't desert me. Repeat [Chorus] 2x
[Verse 1] They say I'm filled with jealousy But what do they expect? I wont play these games of modesty Much to my regret You know you can't have me so, You take the thing I want most .. and use it to make a fool of me. [Chorus] Don't say that you want me. You've already had your fun. Don't say that you need me. I'm not right for anyone. Don't tell me you love me. because I'm not the only one. ... and baby without me Your entire world is gone. [Verse 2] You're playing games with my heart But I expect no less. You wanna make a new start, With Sincerity, start fresh. When will I stop loving you, How long before I undo the damage inside of me? Repeat [Chorus] [Instrumental Break] Repeat [Chorus]
Incision 04:08
[Verse 1] Lonely days in silence slowly disappear. As the clouds draw in clarity is near. ...the cool soothing stamp of nature's tender kiss. By default I only live for days like this. [Verse 2] Perhaps some day I will know your touch. Though our love is unknown it's always meant so much. With you in my arms there's nothing left to say. All I pray for... that we never meet some day. [Chorus] As the night takes over I don't know your name. ... and when the sun comes back we'll both deal with the pain. One more day like this I think I'll go insane. Today together faced with horizontal rain. [Verse 3] With my soul depleted shadows reappear. All my thoughts are undone wishing you were near. All your love is wasted on someone else's heart. I'm just stuck here wondering why I wished us both apart. Repeat [Chorus] [Instrumental Break] Repeat [Chorus]

d.notive Minneapolis, Minnesota

A fresh face in the grassroots world of synthwave, Minneapolis-based producer d.notive is no stranger to innovative, fresh sounds. Lured by the lush, dynamic soundscapes of the 1980's, he presents a fully-formed aesthetic, borrowing heavily from the cinematic imagery of neo-noir, cast against a rich, illustrious background of classic synthesizers. ... more
