Mildreda - Coward Philosophy: new album out now

New album out now!
13 brand new tracks + 20 tracks of bonus material

Buy at bandcamp.com


Today with this monster 33-track “Coward Philosophy” release, MILDREDA displays a solid dark elektro tour de force. MILDREDA adds a killer album to the legacy of the classic 90’s dark elektro genre bringing back to life the sound of bands like PLACEBO EFFECT, NUMB, YELWORC, IN SLAUGHTER NATIVES or even early PROJECT PITCHFORK and also MENTALLO & THE FIXER. MILDREDA offers sinister cold sequences, aggressive vocals, KLINIKal bombastic beats and noir haunting atmospheres in a top-notch poignant production quality that instantly grasps you by the throat until suffocation.



Created in the early 90’s, MILDREDA is actually the first band created by the Belgian artist Jan Dewulf mostly known today under the DISKONNEKTED moniker and its impressive discography.

After having been in limbo for way too many years, it was in 2009, when the Belgian enfant-terrible launched the crazy idea to do a one-night show again with his MILDREDA gang for a birthday party… That reunion gig resurrected the MILDREDA spirit, offering the opportunity for Jan to revisit and exorcise his darker roots and reinforce the project’s dense and powerful atmospheres thanks to new recording technologies and Jan’s expanded own studio gear… 13 new tracks were recorded and remained hidden until now... Today, with “Coward Philosophy”, MILDREDA adds a killer album to the legacy of the classic 90’s dark elektro genre bringing back to life the sound of bands like PLACEBO EFFECT, NUMB, YELWORC, IN SLAUGHTER NATIVES or even early PROJECT PITCHFORK and also MENTALLO & THE FIXER. MILDREDA offers sinister cold sequences, aggressive vocals, KLINIKal bombastic beats and noir haunting atmospheres in a top-notch poignant production quality that instantly grasps you by the throat until suffocation.

For the occasion of this digital-only release, MILDREDA also decided to add as bonus to this new album the band’s original blueprint sound in the form of a fully remastered version of his today cult 1996 demo tape “De Laffe Denker” as well as an amazing recording of the live gig that MILDREDA played in Bruges (Belgium) on March 14th 1998 as the opening band for PLASTIC NOISE EXPERIENCE and TERMINAL CHOICE. An amazing time-travel back to the good old days of dark elektro...


It was in the early 90’s that Jan Dewulf created MILDREDA – then, a Belgian 16 year old kid launching his dark elektro project strongly influenced by other Belgian cult bands like THE KLINIK and their cold and oppressive type of sound… Throughout the years, MILDREDA started gaining a strong reputation on the Belgian electro scene, performing live together with bands like PLASTIC NOISE EXPERIENCE, TERMINAL CHOICE, COVENANT, VNV NATION, etc. And it’s at the turn of the millennium that Jan felt the urge of to put his adventures in dark elektro land on hold to explore new electronic music realms, incorporating more modern dance, break beat, ambient and even synth pop influences with his new compositions: DISKONNEKTED was born, his new experimental studio output where everything was possible, no limit, no constraint, simply constantly surprising the fans who could literally expect the unexpected of each new DISKONNEKTED release, “Hotel Existence” being his latest CD album to date from a quite impressive discography.

Today with this monster 33-track “Coward Philosophy” release, MILDREDA displays a solid dark elektro tour de force that will absolutely erase your dirty sick minds… Do not pray: run for shelter! The MILDREDA beast is back in town!

Your Life On Hold

More than a year since our last update...

So, what happened? Nothing really. For those still wondering: Diskonnekted is at this point six feet under.

We made some ambient tunes in between though, which you can stream or buy on bandcamp:





And of course we've been very busy working on our new project 'Your Life On Hold'. Somewhere between 'The Downward Spiral' and 'Shortbus': things are taking shape...


So hang on for a new adventure!

Some good news, some bad news, and some very good news


The EP is ready and is waiting for its release on September 19th. This day happens to be my birthday so there’s plenty of reason to have a party that day!

We feel very excited about the EP. The remixes are absolutely great and there is some pretty cool additional stuff. We also recorded a video for the Neuroticfish mix of Yesteryears. We’ll release the video next week.

Unfortunately there won’t be a physical release of the EP. Alfa Matrix decided not to because of the tough conditions in music industry land. We’re sorry about that.
But we’ll hope to make you happy with a stunning digital 10-track-EP!

And then there's Didier 'Snake' Salvatore who became the proud father of his first born son Rafael. A big hurray to Ellen and Didier!
