WL//WH Weekly Electronic Music Tips #37
PICKS OF THE WEEK:
- HYPERLACRIMAE [Sounds From NoWhere Podcast #119]
Hailing from the impenetrable outskirts of Naples, Infidel Bodies label affiliated pair of Erminio Granata (11xxx27) and Carmine Laurenza (Nocturnerror) created their porn-ceptual industrial project Hyperlacrimae compounding and deconstructing techno, wave, noise, industrial, proto-punk, acid, EBM with accentuated post-punk leanings.
Restless jagged drums, twitchy broken beats, rugged metallic squeals, raw distorted synths, atmospheric weirdness with sparse buzzing poignant melodies, steadily build, crash, twist and turn in something throbbing and hypnotic that’s simply hard to resist.
- Moscow, Russia krautrock/dub/electro/EBM/wave/dark techno duo Ólta Karawane – “Romanian Erotic Tradition” from V/A “999% HITS” compilation on St. Petersburg based Avacha Records
Part of a rad Avacha Records‘ 8-track compilation of Russian and surrounding Eastern Europe up and coming producers, as well as dispensing the most intriguing off-kilter and genre-defying mixtapes/sets and rotten neglected post-punk/EBM edits around, alcoholic production/DJ duo from Moscow deliver a wobbling and stuttering mutant dub-infused compelling, dope dance-hall epic.
- Toulouse based French/Lebanese electronic techno producer Psaum, aka Arabian Panther النمر العربي “The Penitent” from upcoming “The Way of the Penitent” EP 12″ on SOIL
Excellent Spanish label SOIL back in business with a couple of electrifying releases, French/Lebanese producer achingly mesmerizes through densely crackling and lashing rhythms cut by droning expansions of buzzing abrasion and enigmatic Middle-Eastern inflexions, amid hypnotically and mechanical oscillating glowing bass pulsations awash by hot radiating synth swathes, to form anxious bright melodies steeped in forlorn intensity.
- New York‘s hardware-based acid/electro producer and vinyl DJ Axel Blaze (aka DJ Mystery Science), Ole Mic Odd “Chromed Out 1100” from V/A “Age in Decline (Natural050)” double vinyl LP compilation for the 50th release and the 5th year in operation of Natural Sciences label.
Beast of a 20-track compilation to celebrate the 50th release and 5th year of operation of the Mancunian ‘Mutant Electronics’ imprint Natural Sciences. One of the many favourites, come from L.A. bass finest Ole Mic Odd that unleashes his urgently undulating, acidic and booty, signature bassline allure, cut with dangerous floor-shaking rhythms that thump among indecipherably inebriated male vocalizations, pierced with scalding, organically sinister synth rushes, to urge magnetic dancefloor bliss.
