@Evgeny Larin

PICKS OF THE WEEK:

  • M.A.R.S #14 – VoX LoW ‘Everything Leads To An End”                                                                                              

French coldwave/dark-electro 4-piece based in Paris, VOX LOW with a bass-infused, hypnotic, coruscating and hallucinatory ice cold set that helplessly stutters, clangs and thumps all along the oppressive and claustrophobic gloom trapped in a dark hole.                                                                                              

  • Barcelona-based experimental/minimal synth/synthpop/electronic project of Gerard Ryan, aka Le Cliché “Production Line” off of upcoming 7″ vinyl single on Polytechnic Youth Records                                                  

In a period of mourning for the sad loss of Florian Schneider, Barcelona-based Irishman Gerard Ryan is one of the best producers to have better absorbed classic Kraftwerk icy shimmering synth wizardry.

  • ’90s Italian ambient/IDM/braindance/electronic producer Gianluigi Di Costanzo, aka Bochum Welt “More Light (EOD Remix)” from the upcoming “Seafire Remixes” EP 12″ on Sheffield’s Central Processing Unit

Having started to listen to electronic music in the early 90s with the Braindance of Warp and Rephlex, I’m thrilled to still listen to one of the Italian pioneers of the time, along with Marco Passarani, Bochum Welt in such a great shape, the crispy percussive patterns and the icy glassy melodic synth strings of the EOD remix are mindblowing …

  • Paris, French acid/rave/electro-pop producer Captain Mustache Ft. Adamski – “How Come U Know” off of upcoming 4-track EP ‘‘How Come U Know” on Electronic Emergencies                                                               

‘I haven’t heard the name Adamski in like, 5000 years!’ that’s my friend’s comment…personally the last time I heard of him was for an unlikely single with Seal about 13 years ago!, glad to see him back for a bouncing and buzzing acidic electro cut in collaboration with Parisian ‘electro superhero’ Captain Mustache; another track along with Lisa Lamb, former singer of 90s synthpop trio Peach and Vitalic collaborator, is incoming through the excellent ever Electronic Emergencies label.
