Sangron Volume 1 is a 10-track compilation of previously unreleased electronic music from U.S. based artists specializing in post-punk, minimal synth and experimental sounds. This 'dissident synthpop' compilation reflects the current state of the nation - provocative, energizing and moody but dancefloor-friendly. Founded by Leo Torres, Brooklyn-based singer and composer of the synthpop band Skeleton Head, Sangron Records aims to be a platform for extraordinary electronic artists and 'music for dissidents.'Inspired by the seminal synthpop compilation Some Bizarre Album, Sangron Volume 1 is reflective of the U.S. electronic music underground, bringing together a diverse group of artists resisting the status quo. Torres gathered a roster of minimal synth and post-punk heroes like Mark Lane and Crash Course in Science and combined them with the finest in contemporary America's anti-establishment electronic underground. The result is a powerful and spirited album that is dark and enlightened at the same time and hopes to connect lost souls all over the world. Sangron comes from the Spanish word for “heavy blood.” In slang, it has multiple meanings, including a bad attitude, “killjoy” and gay. The Sangron logo was designed and created by LA based artist Job Leatherette and is inspired by both Aztec and art deco design.
