Fall Shock is an Italian electronic music project founded by ghost producer, drummer and singer Francesco Kay in 2018. Shortly after founding Fall Shock he met Death Metal guitarist Markus O.
This collaboration concretizes a sound close to dark-synth wave.
Through an ethos of production, the music of Fall Shock leads to a sound of urgency and moderation,carefully engaging both the listener and the dancer.
Distressed and sensual voices,flickering synths, straight kiks and hypnotizing guitars, recall inner memories and distant atmospheres. This style of production culminates in the recording debut,which took place in September 2020.
The album is called "Interior" and is released on the French label Manic Depression records.
Gothic Bop and Goth Worldwide put “Interior” among the best albums of 2020 and the song ``Feels Eternal'' among the most listened to.
In November 2021 Manic Depression Records released the vinyl version of “Interior” including remixes of Kontravoid and Black Asteroid.
The new album by Fall Shock is almost ready and Francesco Kay described it as “piercing,poisonous and intoxicating”.

Tokyo Teens began in the final months of 2021 with a collection of demos that writer and founding member Jimmi B. had been working on during many overnight sessions in his modest bedroom studio.
Finding a producer was next and Jimmi reached out to his longtime friend and onetime band mate, Billy Hume. Having found major success mixing and recording mega hits for Bonecrusher, Lil Jon and The Eastside Boyz, and Ying Yang Twins among others, Billy ultimately won a Grammy in 2018 for Best Production on a Bluegrass album (The Infamous StringDusters). It is precisely this blending of rhythmic electronic drums, acoustic instrumental textures and powerful vintage synthesizers that give Tokyo Teens its own unique yet familiar sound.
Add to the mix Jimmi’s full sounding yet vulnerable vocals, and lyrics containing themes of love found, love lost, and open hearted honesty, and the results are songs with a dramatic flair that are equally enjoyable to listen to on a long drive alone in a car, or experience at high volume in a crowded club.
