PICKS OF THE WEEK:
  • P.H. Signals 013 – FRAGEDIS                                                                                                                                      

Courtesy of Dundee collective Public House, veteran Greek producer, Fragedis, originally from Chania, unbridles a trippy killer set of bass-heavy electro and mesmeric industrialized techno sprinkled with EBM and acid leanings.

  • Tel Aviv experimental /breakbeat /acid /psych /electronic producer, one half of Red Axes, Niv Arzi, aka Nic Arizona “Floating The Flood (12″ Version)” off the forthcoming album “Shavua Tov” on Malka Tuti                    

Half of Red Axes, Niv Arzi, under his new alias Nic Arizona, unleashes glowing and swaying electronic coals in anticipation of his forthcoming full-length with psychedelic, slurred, disrupted vocals that spout retro 60s peace and love slogans into spinning layers of droning bass tone vibrations, igniting off-tempo swishing and conga-like striking percussive patterns to drive subconscious tendencies of dance through ominous stuttering echoes, building sludgy auras of disassociated dread, stabbed by warped synthetic keys swirling in drowning frequencies of trance-inducing hypnosis.

  • Israel experimental /ambient /folk /downtempo /aquatic /psych /electronic producer TAI RONA “Amuka” off V/A “Castalia Drops” cassette compilation inspired by the fountain of Castalia on Décalé’s sublabel Feng Shit Records

Tel Aviv resident with his one-of-a-kind equally spiritual and esoteric, as it is contemplative and subaquatic atmospheric reverie with serene airy bamboo drifts swimming through swirling expansions of heart-beat bass palpitations, soft glimmering synth and primal, insect chitters, while mesmeric ancestral vocal teachings shift pace and frequency into crispy tribal percussive patterns and somber trumpet blows, opening mental pathways with layered organic chants and underwater sonic frequencies to harness the electronic currents of sea life into pure tranquillity. 

  • French ambient /EBM /Industrial /dark electronics producer Alpha Sect “Fear State” from the upcoming EP “Fear State” on Mosaique Records

French ‘Industrial and EBM front fighter’ Alpha Sect unbinds intense enigmatic dance cyphers weaving relentless crispy kicks and stark pounding snare beats into static frequencies of disconnected harmony, igniting segmented bass pulses into treacherous oscillations of doom, lighting warm organic synth glow into soaring flourishes of fear around distant paranoid inducing robotic recordings of modern dystopic disfunction.
