It's spooky how quickly time flies on the internets. Well we have good newsings for all: the new Domeyko/Gonzalez single has been released and it's a corker! You can grab it on iTunes along with our pal Jagwar Ma's superb radio mix. D/G's debut full length release, Exploding The Beauty Myth, will be out next year.
The Tunnel Signs 12" will be out any day now so keep an eye out for that too! With remixes from Monsieur Graz, Daniel Avery and The Finger Prince it's a total beast which we can't wait to unleash upon the world.
Hello again internet voyagers, welcome back to our little digital island. Cool stuff is happening, allow me to fill you in.
Death Strobe will be hosting one of the side stages at CircoLoco in October. We've got our pals Slow Blow, Cleric Apton and Mirror Mirror to help our with the beats so it'll be a shamWOW of a time. We've got cheap cheap cheap tickies to sell so if you're keen, shoot over an electronic mail message to ash [at] deathstrobe [dot] com
We've got a bunch more cool stuff on the way including new records from Midnight Savari, Tunnel Signs, Hubba Bubba Klubb and Sleep D. In the meantime, check out the new Bumblebeez clip from our pals at Bang Gang. Much Aussie love!
We'll be relaunching the Sunday Sesh very soon too so stay tuned~~~
So it's been just a little while since we've done any rumbling on this website - apologies for that. But there is good news all around! We've just released our third record, a spectacular album by Domeyko/Gonzalez composed for our good friend and collaborative artist James Kerr's debut exhibition. Give it a click!
It's a gorgeous ambient composition which matches up beautifully with Kerr's imagery and we're extremely proud to be releasing it! Not only that, but we're very proud of how the record has turned out - a limited run of 100 records with screen printed covers and hand-humbered & signed inserts. We don't expect them to last long so snap one up with haste. You can listen to the whole recording on Bandcamp before you buy. We hope you enjoy!
Some more good news for the news page! We're starting up a weekly Sunday rooftop party at Hunky Dory Social Club from this weekend onwards! We'll be having weekly guests joining us, the Death Strobe Seizure Jockeys, for plenty of fun sunny times and an overdose of fine tunes.

Check out this snazzy review of the D/G EP in The Brag this week:
"I'm trying to figure out why I like this music; dance music is not my thing, nor is dub, or most beats-based music. But when I put this EP on, I feel productive. I feel like the swirling bass and epic beats will carry me to the end of my day.
This is an instrumental EP, featuring synthesisers, programmed beats, samples and a sense of the epic climaxes that dance music often reaches. Drawing from hip hop, dance, trance, dub and rock music, it's the work of two accomplished and well-researched multi-instrumentalist musicians, Sydney's James Domeyko (Arkestra, Danimals) and Jaie Gonzalez (I Like Cats, Danimals). Their perfect layering decisions and intelligent, whole-album approach really creates a stable and cohesive unit of an EP; the smooth, gapless track transitions prove that this is not an album of pop singles, and it's intended to be listened to in its entirity.
'I. Eschatol' is the first real taste of the pair's understanding of riffs, and despite its lack of lyrics, it will stay in your mind, with its patient beat and slow-but-steady build-up into fuzz. When the lift comes and the beat drops on 'Memory Centre', it's Massive Attack, it's U.N.K.L.E, and it's awesome. 'III. Unachor' features one slightly awkward beat but also embraces a little more looseness and anarchy in contrast to the more Moby-sounding tracks on offer. It's more of that, and then a few remix tracks, on a well-polished seven-track EP.
A solid and exciting record from an entrancing live act, who win extra kudos for being something different to your average indie fare."
We're proud of our boys! Massive Attack, look out.
