Minimal, deep, powerful and lashing at the same time, The French producer draws irresistible dark hypnotic alchemy through obsessive pounding kicks and crispy resonant rhythmic patterns, ominously enveloping buzzing bass tones and slow swarming, distressing icy synth swathes to rise and fall in supernatural and apocalyptic frequencies instilling primal instincts from mind-expanding moods of obscure and enigmatic dancefloor allure.
- Italian ethnic /downtempo /acid /tribal electronic DJ/producer based in Rome, A-Tweed – “Sahara Magic” (Single)
Stifling and mind-bending acidic downtempo aural phantasmagoria from Italian magician with ominous, relentless slow punchy beats along with tight, crisp percussive blows, drive paranoia and intrigue through a mesmeric tapestry of reflective, tinkling synth chimes, echoing anonymous distorted voices, to grind subliminal propagandized deception into designed doorways of deranged destiny, whilst groovy yet sinister bouncing bass pulse menace maligns unformed thoughts into both wicked and treacherous, as well as sultry and irresistible dancefloor desires.
