Articles and various information regarding the band. [Category]
The first band on the label – Diskodiktator – will return with a brand new album in 2014. Taken from that album is the single ”Inte så svårt” (”Not So Hard” in English) and it truly shows a new direction for the group that has released everything from disco covers, EBM and vintage electronica.
Included on the single is remixes from German Beborn Beton and label mates Social Ambitions.
Follow the production of the new album on the official Diskodiktator homepage (in Swedish).
The latest album from Social Ambitions called ”Hunger” has been out for a while and as we are still waiting for more reviews here are what a few people has to say about it:
Har du som jag en försmak för det lite naiva inom synthen så är detta en helgjuten platta som kommer att förgylla dina sommarkvällar.
The electronica duo Social Ambitions’ new album “Hunger” feels almost like an excursion through the synth pop of the eighties and also like a mix of light and darkness. They also vary by singing in both Swedish and English on the album which changes the experience from song to song.
Давно слежу за их творчеством. По-моему, одна из достойнейших шведских электропоп команд. Вот такой альтернативный рок! Парни, и правда, оправдывают своё название.
På plattan har duon hämtat desperation från det skeva 80-talet och klarhet från Vince Clarkes melodier. Det hörs inte minst i längtansfyllda ”Feber” och det spralliga öppningsspåret ”Berget”. Inspiration från Kaah och Krunegård och att våga sjunga från hjärtat utan omsvep har gjutit mod och gett liv i texterna på det synthiga albumet.
Here’s another selection of great new albums on my Spotify rotation. These dozen or so slabs of prime electronica made the cut and should keep you going for a few weeks!

Dear friends and fans, sorry for the recent lack of updates. There are a number of interesting things in the pipeline such as the new album by Social Ambitions called ”Hunger” which was released a few days ago. So far it has gotten excellent reviews and we’re still looking for more. ”Hunger” is available for download and on limited edition CD in selected stores. Diskodiktator will – for the first time in ages – take to the stage as the band invades Germany and the Familientreffen IX on July 6 and in November Diskodiktator and Topgun will embark on a two date Swedish tour. We’re also very excited to learn that The Crashlanders have started recording new material…
”Skrämselhicka” (or ”The Hickups of Fear” in English) is the new single from Swedish duo Social Ambitions released by Electric Fantastic Sound on April 8 2013. The single is taken from the forthcoming album ”Hunger” which will be released later this year.
All tracks on the single were mastered by Brian Hazard of Color Theory fame. Combining the skills of the band itself (previously nominated to ‘Album of the Year’ for their 2011 debut ”Almost Gone”) with the sound wizardry of Hazard brought out the finer details of electro pop. To add insult to injury Diskodiktator supplied a lengthy remix of the title track…
This is perhaps the coolest news since sliced bread; famed DJ Rusty Egan has included a track from our very own Social Ambitions in his exclusive mix for Electronic Rumors! The mixtape also include groups like Ultravox, Kraftwerk and Vcmg and it is available along with some interesting background information right here:
Our friends in Social Ambitions are on the brink of releasing a brand new mini album called ”Anticipation” and so far we’ve heard nothing but praise for it, like our friends at south American Disturbia Magazine.
We’ve got some exciting releases coming this year and among them here are some… Atari Cowboy, Social Ambitions, Flux, Libra and Diskodiktator have all finished recording new material. We hope you will enjoy them as much as we do!
