Weekly Electronic Music Tips – MARCH #09-23

PICKS OF THE WEEK:

  • DJ HELL // @Under Club, Buenos Aires [18th February 2023]                                                                                 

3-hour-long masterclass DJ set for the 10th year Anniversary of Buenos Aires’ Under Club by longtime Bavarian electronic wizard and International DeeJay Gigolo Records co-founder DJ Hell.          

  • Brooklyn-based, Miami-bred bass /breaks /techno /electro producer (one-half of Lithium Parasites), ALONZO – “Nikki Don’t Save Me” from upcoming V/A “Machine Funk Is Our Game Volume 6″ EP 12” [Kraftjerkz]

First preview from the always ace Kraftjerkz label’s “Machine Funk” 12″ vinyl series by Brooklyn via Miami bassy futuristic Electro producer Alonzo, who unleashes punchy metallic snares and lacerating hi-hats that drive through menacing slow swells of droning basslines, obsessively jittery and creeping arp loops, surrounded by enigmatic vocoder vocals, to take us on a disturbing trip into the unknown.

  • Tel Aviv based experimental /acid /house /leftfield /electro analog producer, sound artist, musician and DJ (head of Confused Machines label, bass player of Mujahideen, and half of Group Modular), MULE DRIVER “The Loneliness of the Long Distance Runner” off 2-track lathe cut 7″ single “We Don’t Exist” [Confused Machines]

Tel Aviv‘s Mule Driver keeps following his haunting acid-house aesthetics wrapped in analog machine sounds. Titled like the early 60s Tony Richardson/Alan Sillitoe’s New Wave of British Cinema classic film, warm and menacing at the same time hypnotic 303 snarls, amidst clattering beats and stuttering crisp compulsive bassline pileups, enshrouded in slightly distorted distant esoteric synth aura, slowly corroded by acid squelchy loops, lead us into a slow-burning lonesome run of introspective poignancy.

  • French experimental electronic producer, live performer and Microdosing label head, Julienne Dessagne, aka Fantastic Twins ” When It Fades (we fade)” from V/A “MY DEAR” compiled by Denis Stockhausen (KOMPAKT) for the 11th anniversary of his infamous party series “MY DEAR” at Gewölbe, Cologne

Kompakt´s very own Denis Stockhausen, to celebrate the 11th anniversary of the infamous Cologne‘s ‘MY DEAR’ party series, delivers a lush, melodic, atmospheric melange of minimal and deep Techno, House, and Breakbeat to take us high on heady reveries of pure dancing catharsis and euphoria.
