Berlin-based South of Italy bred DJ/producer TANS (aka Hannibal III and The Sympathizer), co-head of Sons of Traders label along with his cousin Mike Tansella jr., with whom forms also a production duo under the same moniker. More than an hour, thrilling and blazing mind-twisting concoction of thick, robotic, and rugged rhythms, distorted droning, at acid-flecked, basslines, twisted proto-electro incursions and both bouncing and funky coarse industrialized electronics.

  • Ibiza-based, French experimental /synthwave /electro producer from Bordeaux, Jauzas The Shining “Be Free” off of upcoming V/A “Artificial Intelligence VOL. I” compilation album on Artificial Intelligence                    

French producer contributes to the upcoming first compilation from Spanish label Artificial Intelligence with a minimal, trippy and claustrophobic downtempo cut insinuating eerie spatial vibes through hallucinating ethereal synth rotations, gassy and whirring modulations, dry robotic snare beats, gritty chunky low end contortions, and haunted distorted vocals, with underwater illusions of introverted bliss to open alternate cyber dimensions with a heady construction of disturbing electro daydreams.

  • Rome-bred, Berlin-based EBM /industrial techno /darkwave /experimental electronics Italian producers, Lestat & Lady Maru “Claustrophobia” from the upcoming album “Bloody & Teary Country” on Moscow’s Routine Records

Rome-bred, Italian electronic producers, relocated to Berlin, Lestat & Lady Maru, explore darker and EBM inflected territories over the upcoming 7-track album; the first preview injects chasmic layers of cold, urgent, and ominous dimensions to drive fear and allure through stomping steam-powered beats, buzzing percolating basslines danger, icy bright swathes of synth bleakness and magnetic paranoia-inducing vocal repetitions to rise and fall in the unescapable oppressive vibes of “Claustrophobia.”

Up-and-coming young Tbilisi-based DJ and producer Giorgi Bekurashvili AKA Ćyan ID returns on Greek label OSM tapes with an upcoming cassette/10″ EP replete with his heady concoction of Body Music, Industrial Post-punk, Rave and ‘rare Techno’; the first preview, the remix by fellow Georgian musician Hecate Legacy, spreads outs enough buzzing bassline danger, eerily sharp synth strain drama and pummelling mechanical marching beats, surrounded by sparse distant swirling screams and childish babbles, to grip you into an apocalyptic dancefloor trance.
