dilemma records is a label for experimental music, located in austria. running by one member of interstellar records and started in the year 2008
Eva Aguila, aka Kevin Shields, is an experimental noise artist originally from Los Angeles, CA and currently residing in Portland, OR. Aguila's sound-accompanied gestured performance is both the source and the driving force behind her conceptual sound-making, which has been described as “Sheer cliffs of feedback ice, throbbing and grinding gear distortions, and angelic digital bursts slowly cancel each other out creating additives that are neither impatient nor dead.” Composed using magnetic tape manipulated through film-editing machines, the movement required to create these sounds is of central importance to Aguila, whose ideal audience and interaction is with listeners outside of experimental music scenes.
Aguila has toured extensively throughout Europe and the United States, and has been involved in several other bands and projects throughout the Los Angeles Area. Her discography features releases on Deathbomb Arc, Hate State, Entropic Tarot and Weird Forest. Her most recent band, Caldera Lakes (with Brittney Gould of Married in Berdichev), was featured in Arthur Magazine’s May 2010 Tongue Top Ten by Byron Coley and Thurston Moore.
originally a two-piece, METALYCEE grew to become a gang of 5 in 2007 feat. members of THILGES3 and TUMIDO with their headquarters in vienna. a harsh melange of metal goes electronics with no respekt to limits of whatever kind - they vividly proof to potentially become the GODFLESH of today.

Valerio Tricoli (born 1977 in Palermo, based in Berlin) works with the electro-acoustic group 3/4HadBeenEliminated, as a concrete music composer, improviser, sound installation artist, producer and sound engineer.
His compositions bridge musique concrète and conceptual forms of sound (i.e. the radical interest in how reality, virtuality, memory relate to each other during the acoustic event): music, as a recorded or as a synthetically-modeled sound, is always hovering between the "here and now" of the event and the shady domain of memory – distant but at the same time present, like a déjà–vu experience.
Tricoli plays live music with electronic instruments – most of them analogue – (reel-to-reel tape recorders, synthesizers, microphones, light effects, ultrasonic speakers), however the structure of the device is ever-changing, seeking multiple relations between the performers, the device and the space in which the event takes place.
He is one of the founders of the Bowindo label/collective ("arguably the best thing to come out of Italy since Luigi Nono", Dan Warburton, The Wire), and of the band 3/4HadBeenEliminated, a daring synthesis between improvisation, electro-acoustic composition and avant-rock sensitivity.
