Slightly late on this mix, courtesy of the Athens based Dystatik Podcast…forging his craft through labels like labels such as Pinkman, Käften, Arma, Phormix, LuxRec, Aperitif de la Mort, Bryansk denizen DJ-producer and modular synthesizer freak, Zhenya Lavrinov, mainly known under the alias of LVRIN (check also his latest esoteric and cosmic incarnation as GOLDEN AXE), weave organically a simultaneously stripped-down and uncompromising coalesce of mechanical Electro, leftfield Techno, edgy EBM, eerie Industrial and puzzling synthy Avant Pop, peppered with Tribal and Ethnic inflexions, to torment your body and stimulate your imagination.

  • Netherlands Synthwave /Italo /Nu-Disco producer Erik Drost, aka Mouissie – “Getting You Out Of My System” off of upcoming “Chasing A Feeling” EP on Ritmo Fatale                                                                                        

Up-and-coming Dutch Disco Synth Wave producer finally returns with his debut EP chock full of bygone heartwarming melodies mixed with cool entrancing and uplifting energy. Driving and hypnotic beats set the dizzying build for a groovy nostalgic dancefloor excursion lit in fluttering, obsessive, and tinkling piano key melodies, warm soaring swathes, flashing, droning bass tones and jiggly throbs, whilst zippy swirling glittering chords and icy cold celestial moods infuse an utter emotional immersion into uninhibited bliss

  • Philadelphia psych /acid /electro duo Thomas Roland and James Weissinger (aka Girls Chat Room and Peyton Farquhar), aka Zillas On Acid “A New Way of Living” from upcoming V/A “Outsiders 01” compilation [Inside Out Records]                                                                                                                                 

Philadelphia trippy electro groovers ignite the upcoming Inside Out Records‘ sampler with an exotic and vibrant concoction of ancestral tribal rhythms, crispy percussions, and warm smouldering digging basslines, enclosed by echoing esoteric vocal loops, soulful spoken words and swirling esoteric synth sweeps, throbs and sways, teetering between dream and reality, through a relentless sensorial slow burn swelling around a hallucinated trance-inducing groove to ceaselessly stir your mind and imagination.

  • Athenian New Beat /Techno DJ-producer and Dystatik label head, Dry_Feel “37°14′0″N 115°48′30″W” from “No Privacy” EP tape on X-IMG                                                                                                                   

Athenian electronic militant and Dystatik tape label head delivers ‘4 original tracks of finely crafted noir sci-fi soundscapes weaving between body music, new beat and techno plus a remix by X-IMG imprint boss SARIN. Dry_Feel also runs the Athenian based Dystatik cassette label. “Area 51” coordinates kick off a  barrage of relentless frantic bass undulations that drives stomping marching beats, off-tempo discharges of hard-hitting percussive hits, through steam-powered hisses, swirling fluttering spacy spirals, and shivering, sinister windings to expand steadfast kinetic rhythms into a crushing momentum of sci-fi dance floor doom.
