Mannequin Celebrates Fifth Anniversary With New Records From Deathday, Police Des Moeurs and Sixth June

As easy as it is to find cold/minimal/whatever-wave records these days, Mannequin Records isn’t new to the world of moody, synth-y music that sounds like it was recorded somewhere between the late ’70s and the Reagan administration. Some of it actually has been, like the two-volume Danza Meccanica series that spotlighted Italy’s take on the vibrant underground scene between 1981 and 1987. But a lot of Mannequin’s catalog has focused on emerging artists who simply fit into the same mold, including Led Er Est, Tropic of Cancer and Mushy.

Since next month marks the Berlin-based label’s fifth anniversary, they’re celebrating the occasion with three small-batch releases on December 9th: Deathday’s No Future EP, Police Des Moeurs’ debut album and Sixth June’s Pleasure EP.

Check out a complete breakdown of each release below, along with a set of mixes from Mannequin founder Alessandro Adriani that’ll give you a general idea of the label’s vapor-trailed vibes…
