  • Rennes based industrial /techno /electronic producer Weever “Mes pauvres enfants” from “Il Fut Un Temps” LP on INSTINKT

French producer Weever, head of Vives Records, distils an appealing and gripping full-length dose of his distinctive deadly cinematic and esoteric dark electronica. Sentient droning frequencies, mechanical clanks, eerie glowing synth strains, marching militant beats, and haunting ceremonial atmospheric echoes merge into droning and pulsating rhythms of buzzing and magnetic dance floor allure, lust and danger. A heady squadron of remixers such as End Of Mortal Life, Nigh/T\mare, CVRD and Shadowcomplex makes the ceremony even more fatal and transfixing.

Lithuanian electronic artist Aurum Miles instils a luscious and mesmerizing dark disco allure into spiralling acidic frequencies that ebb and flow, haunted by breathy, sensual female vocals and cat-like purrs, releasing pent up tension and teases into the hypnotic surge of buzzing bassline treachery, crawling through the distorted vibrations and luxurious dancefloor corruption with dangerous prowess and obsession.
