Eclectic and prolific Basque DJ and producer Nathan Church from Bilbao, known as We Love Dolce Vita, yet better known as WLDV, blends horror disco heat, EBM menace, wave coldness, atmospheric darkness, and acidic techno leftfield drive in a mixed selection of his own, still unreleased, music and remixes, mostly recorded during the lockdown, to be dropped soon along the year.
