Dark Entries was born in the spring of 2009 to release out of print and unreleased synth-driven music as well as contemporary bands referencing that sound. A project of Josh Cheon, a vinyl-focused DJ and collector, Dark Entries takes great care in preserving sound quality and respecting the aesthetics of its artists. All of their releases are in limited runs, hand numbered and sometimes stamped, a carry over from the DIY days of the 1980s independent record labels. Dark Entries entrusts all of their projects with the best engineer in the state, George Horn at Fantasy Studios, who has remasters each release using his 50+ years of knowledge in the industry. Don’t expect to find CDs anytime soon, Dark Entries will only release vinyl since they value the importance of surface to sound ratio and enjoy loud records./www.darkentriesrecords.com
“The performances of artist Valerie Renay (aka Femme Façade) are comprised of enigmatic surfaces, the fascination of which is not merely situated in the pure opposition of nearness and distance. Rather, Femme Façade confronts her audience as an advocate of the plurality of roles and as an endless game with veneers, thus allowing the desire for the body's legibility to become obsolete.
Valerie Renay is a French performer, director, live artist, cabaret, film and one-half of the band Noblesse Oblige. She has worked with the Pacitti Company, Marisa Carnesky, Clod Ensemble, Gary Stevens, Joshua Sofaer, La Ribot, and Song Theatre. Renay has also hosted cabaret nights at the Whoopee Club and Hoxton Bark (London).”
ReveRso's work seeks to look further into the human's soul and its devious and deceptive nature. Confident on this quest he has achieved a premise for an imagery that aims both to confront and to seduce the audience. . In this sense he embraces all of his multiple personalities on an attempt to recreate a variety of reactions towards topics involving gender, sex, repression, abuse, beauty, death, intimacy, hatred, agony, love, solitude, madness, vulnerability etc.
In 1999 after a long journey throughout different countries in South America he flew to Amsterdam where he lived for almost 8 years. In most of this time he has been a resident performer for the legendary Supperclub and has been able to perform in cities like Amsterdam, Berlin, Moscow, Istanbul, Antwerp, Paris, Barcelona, Madrid, Copenhagen, Warsaw and most recently in San Francisco and Los Angeles.
He is based in Berlin where he is currently working on video performances and collaborating with different musicians from the underground Berlin scene by making music videos . So far he has made videos for Dee Mee Tree, Nuclear Family, Petra Flurr, BANG, Noblesse Oblige, Molly Nilsson, Ernesto Tomasini, Kamikaze Queens, Eat Lipstick, Noisy Pig, Velvet Condom, VREMMD, CBk/Naked Cuddlez, Jemek jemowit, Jewels of the Nile,The Horrorist, etc
