Heartthrob contributed the track Dizfunction to this special release compiled by Allergy Season and Discwoman in response to the oncoming Trump Administration. The tunes are fantastic. Please support!
“Well, we just got back from the doctor and yes, we’re sick. There is a fetid smell, the pollen of hatred and bigotry, wafting through the air and our allergies are acting up. While there’s no known cure, we’ve come up with something to treat the symptom, a healthy dose of electronic protest music, a middle finger from the underground to the future powers-that-be. Taken once a day, this pack can help to alleviate the symptoms of discrimination and demagoguery, whether from proto-fascist politicians or insecure music forum commenters.
Physically Sick is a charity compilation by Allergy Season and Discwoman curated by Umfang, Frankie Hutchinson, Max McFerren and Physical Therapy. 100 percent of profits from the compilation will go to selected charities who oppose the hateful policies of the incoming administration: The American Civil Liberties Union, Callen-Lorde, The National Immigration Law Center, and Planned Parenthood.
Available exclusively on the Allergy Season Bandcamp before the dreaded Inauguration Day.”
The track Never Wanted One from Heartthrob’s ISNISNT03 — Haus Arrest is part of the mix by Waze & Odyssey for Mixmag Germany.

Check out the new track Intersection by Heartthrob aka Jesse Siminski to appear on the forthcoming release on ISNISNT. The kind people at Ransom Note are hosting it!
“The smell of rubber lingered in the musky air. Tyres spun furiously and engines roared beneath the underpass. In the distance two cars could be seen swerving along the twisty road as they raced towards the intersection, their headlights like the eyes of foxes against the darkness of the night. The lights changed from red to green and another two racers left the group speeding off into the distance in hot pursuit, heading for the chase, heading for the intersection.”
The last release in 2015 coming from Heartthrob is a remix of Octave 7 by Click Box for Mr. C’s Superfreq label.
“Unapologetically powerful, this techno monster starts with tough phased beats as tripped out synths invite the bassline to throb its way in. Tough bass stabs then rocket this remix to the next level. This is a proper remix that fully uses the original elements with aplomb.”
An absolute jam from Matt Tolfrey & Heartthrob has landed on Leftroom Records as part of their Ten Years Of Leftroom compilation.

“Bridging the gap between the old & the NEW, the minimal & the MAXIMAL, minMAX represents a widening of scope as we explore the area between the sounds of classic Minus & Plus 8. As others subdivide and categorize we bring things back together, opening things up more freely and allow a closer connection to the music that I love and the sounds & textures that many of my DJ sets journey through.”
