Weekly Electronic Music Tips – October #43-21

  • Mechta Podcast 042 — St. Theodore                                                                                                                     

Courtesy of the Belarus Podcast from Minsk, Mechta, Voronezh, Russia based musician/producer Nikita Theodorov, Raw Union label affiliated and curator, and one-half post-punk/coldwave project Midnight Passage, AKA St. Theodore, returns with a heavy invigorating concoction of Electro, EBM, Acid, Cold Wave and Industrial. Enjoy!                                                           

  • Greek EBM /industrial techno /dark electronic producer from Athens, MORAH “Zelandas Basico” from upcoming cassette LP “Bizarre Beauty” (plus a limited 5-track Vinyl EP 12” on Filmmaker‘s Body Musick label)

Brand new album from AthensPhormix label founder and electronic experimentalist Morah unfolds, with usual prowess, its metallic and seismic industrial core, combining seamlessly New Beat, Techno, Post-Punk, Electro, Wave, Acid, Ambient and everything in between. Dangerous steadily hypnotic dancing tribal vibes inflame “Zelandas Basico” with thunderous ritual beats to stomp invigorating boisterous rhythms through a conveyor belt of repetitive mechanical clanks, disconnected steam-powered frequencies, warped, sinister, and high-strung distorted vocal echoes, to build surreal swirling hypnosis like a Mad Hatter’s dark and colourful dream.

  • Dresden/ Leipzig hip-hop /electro duo KAWA KAWA – “Mon Frère” from V/A “NOAR001” label funding EP compilation [NOAR Records]                                                                                                                                   

Although not long ago the East German duo was teetering in dangerous, at least for us, soulful trap sounding territories, on the other hand, taking part at the fundraising NOAR Label compilation EP with a syncopated and hypnotic killer vocal electro number that unleashes asymmetric rolling bassline that drives through an exhilarating mood of drifting Teutonic female vocalizations, gathering detached, angst, breathless secrets, and hypnotic echoes from the rapid palpitating punchy dance beats and eerie desolate icy-bright synth swathes to insert trance-inducing wavelengths into the mind-erasing dancefloor groove.

  • Colombian Electro /Industrial /EBM /techno producer (aka Magnum Opus), Implantable Technology – “Cyber Future” off of upcoming V/A “Feed your Demons” compilation on Italy’s imprint Frenesia.                                 

Italian label’s first filthy compilation shows up through one of Colombian DJ-producer Felipe Novoa‘s moniker with a disruptive and turbulent raw mix of buzzing warped electro and heavy thumping techno spattered with industrial and EBM unruly threat. “Cyber Future” compels dirty heavy steam-powered beats to stomp in relentless mechanical syncopated logic through a thundering vibration of flashing, droning low ends and disruptive zipping synth strains, pausing on occasion to carve eerie spatial stuttering distorted expansions, before ploughing forward in brutal, unstoppable edgy thumping cyber bliss.
