Weekly Electronic Music Tips – NOVEMBER #48 – 22

PICKS OF THE WEEK:

  • Feed Your Head Show: BETTY                                                                                                                  

A stalwart of the Lyon clubbing scene, Betty delivers club-oriented dance mixes tinged with Indie Dance and Dark Disco, while adding some New Wave. She is also one half of the recently established duo Nouveau Futur along her friend Neurotiker, with their first track, “Amour éphémère”, ready to blast off next December 7th on Mélopée Records’ compilation “Retro Futur”.

  • Athens, Greece based Noise /Dark Electro /Punk /EBM new solo project of 1/2 of One Flesh.Infektion, The Hanged Man – “Mind Games” off upcoming V/A “Unholy Body Tempo” compilation [SHISHI]

New solo venture by Athenian doomy Body Music producer, who besides simultaneously featuring on an EBM-charged killer cut with fellow Alpha Sect, debuts in great shape with a wintry and menacing Industrialized Techno strain to insinuate a dystopic dreadful barren urban grit intoxicated with a droning throbbing dancing ebb and flow of deceptive disclosures. Arcane, dark, and abrasive hypnotic frequencies compel buzzing bass line undulations to flicker and contort under the heavy weight of ominous stacked thumping drum kicks and slashing beats, whilst incoming swarms of eerie searing synth swathes transfix, seize, and overpower a distracted, desire-driven mindset with minimal vocal suggestions.

  • Ambient /experimental /glitch /abstract /minimal /electronic sound artist, heoliene “download filament rain” off the album “pico” on deuveir                                                                                                             

Enigmatic experimental electronic sound artist heoliene, possibly in one of its most accomplished releases to date, moves away from previous glitch leanings, to deliver a sublime deep, and hypnotic array of micro sounds, rife with plinking and chiming deep melodies rolling through an alternate universe of piercing tones, blurry frequencies, humming soft pads, and light percussive patterns, to merge in an expanding headspace of psychic clarity where mesmeric repetitions, subsonic echoes, and twinkling thoughtforms rise as newfound constellations on the magical horizon of twilight’s darkening shift.

  • Bogotá based bass /techno /breaks /electro artist DAGGA – “Keep Going” from V/A “DAAF TRAX 3” compilation on FU.ME rec

The forthcoming third volume from Milan-based FU.ME rec‘s “DAAF TRAX” compilation keeps on evoking futuristic sounds, teased by Colombian producer that injects cloudy swarming droning auras with hypnotic erratic jiggly bass lines, hard-stomping dance beats, and minimal distressing vocal agency, to rise and fall in sinister waves of breaking rhythms and warning synth alarms left dancing in a heady dominion of “Tesla Trooper” bliss.
