  • Knekelhuis # 64 – MOOPIE (A Colourful Storm)                                                                                                       

Beijing-born, Melbourne, Australia based Moopie, mastermind of the mighty A Colourful Storm label and unpredictable eclectic DJ, this week shows up why with a lush and mesmerizing mix ‘turned out to be a dreamy, mostly 90’’s IDM selection, getting more bleepy techno-ish towards the end’.

  • Lithuanian experimental/industrial/techno/EBM producer TEATRE “Defeated By Own Hands” from the new V/A – “Northern Nightmares Vol.1” (UNR006) cassette compilation on Up North Records                                   

First release of the year for Melbourne based label runs by Lachlan Bozin, aka  Lbeeze with the first volume of a new tape compilation series featuring a bunch of the finest EBM, Industrial, techno underground producers; hard to highlight a track but the usual EBM-infested, icy synth-haunted, bangin’ techno cruncher by Lithuanian ace Teatre inexorably takes no prisoner.

  • New York by way of London and Belgrade eclectic producer and Samo Records head, Facets – “Tools of Survival” fundraising single via Samo Records

Propelled by relentless old school electro tight and jittery rhythmic patterns, passionate angry male vocals rise and fall in frustrated pain to expose life in the projects, as a war zone swept in fear, denial, and anger with desperate hopes for unification, pride, or a return home. Eye-opening speech.
