Weekly Electronic Music Tips – March #9-21

  • RUSSELL PENN ‘Ein Langsamer Tanz II’                                                                                                                   

Suggested by the eclectic impeccable taste of DJ Kirsty P, fellow London-based veteran DJ and party promoter, Russell Penn, uncoils a ‘slow wander through some frozen Balearics & shoe gaze classics’.
A trippy atmospheric journey, equally dark and iridescent, thriving amidst an inebriating multifaced maze flavoured by dub reverbs, hypnotic tribal percussive patterns, chugging beats, bright synth swirls, mysterious ethnic vibes, snaky bass vibrations, haunting vocal samples, to immerse yourself in a luxuriant and sultry mind-bending cosmic dimension.

  • Mysterious new beat /EBM /industrial /techno Russian producer NAMESIS “Call Me Out (feat. Sunko)” off upcoming “Rave Is Dead” EP on Soma Records                                                                                        

I used to know the glorious Soma label for Detroit-ish techno stuff, maybe I’m no more informed as before, or possibly is a new venture in obscure, clanging and brooding sci-fi sonic territories, the fact is that is all about quality as usual; enigmatic Russian producer unleashes spastic slashing bursts that echo into alternate dimensions of cold bleak post-apocalyptic dissolution, winding broken steam-powered beats and droning bass tone danger over emotional male vocals, swaying between pain and defiance to decay desperately into the unpredictable rhythms of clanking industrial doom.

  • Turkish dark disco /psych /ethnic /electronic collaboration Günce Aci feat. Fat&Bald “The Absurd” from upcoming “Being and Nothingness” EP on Vienna/Istanbul‘s label Belly Dance Services

Istanbul based DJ/Producer Günce Aci in cahoots with the penetrating guitar chords of Ankara-based Ortac Genc, aka Fat&Bald to produce a mind-bending raw, off-kilter and mesmerizing mix of organic and synthetic, pulsing dance rhythms and garagey-rock vibes. Sinister low throbbing bassline prowls into primal 6-string piercing emissions, blinkingly buzzing ominous synth frequencies, haunting reverb, and sketchy, palpatory beats to weave intoxicating, ethnic-flavored, twisted and spacey dimensions into a trance-inducing sonic tapestry of heady bliss.

  • Cosmic /dark disco/new wave/slow techno collaboration between Chilean producer and Berlin duo of Vamparela & Brax Moody, aka Alejandro Paz & Local Suicide “Directions (Undo Remix)” off of upcoming EP “Directions” on Darkroom Dubs                                                                                                                           

We could not miss another compelling new release from the beloved production unit Alejandro Paz & Local Suicide. Barcelona‘s artist UNDO injects hypnotic yet angsty cosmic vibes and sinuously organic low ends into his striking re-interpretation with ceaselessly spiralling buzzing chords reverberations that swirl aimlessly through stacked low wandering bleak hearty bass pulsations and punchy off-tempo beats, while, washed by airy desolate synth drifts, soft detached female vocals and sad anxious male counterpart, brood lost hopes into a grim spatial tragedy.                     

  • Istanbul/Sofia experimental /ambient / drone /electronica duo of Ekin Üzeltüzenci and Ivan Shentov, aka Ekin Fil & krāllār – “Koyu (Тъмно)” from V/A “An Embrace” tape compilation EP, a collaborative project between the Bulgarian collective Amek and the German label Vaagner via Berlin‘s Easterndaze Festival
