  • Berlin-based NewYorker electronic /Italo disco /new wave /post-punk /coldwave /dark techno producer Luca Venezia aka CURSES – “Boundless feat Jennifer Touch” from the 2×12″ LP “Incarnadine” on Dischi Autunno

The multifaceted, equal parts dark and sparkling, electronica of Curses‘ third album is established on a heady and powerful whirlwind of sound suggestions ranging from Post-punk, New Wave, House to Synthwave, Italo, New Beat among others combined with 80s Horror movie/literary moods, is deft evidence of eclecticism and music culture heightened to a conceptual and compositional method, where the genre becomes material to be moulded and cannibalized from the inside, always channelling it into a relentless rhythm that never fails and ceases to pulsate, captivate and grip in an intoxicating neverending dancefloor brimming with ‘timeless emotions’.

  • Danish experimental/ambient duo of Mikkel Valentin Dunkerley & P.E. (aka Rosen & Spyddet), aka Olympisk Løft – “Fire Blanke Sten Faldt Fra Hjertet” from V/A “May The Embers Of Resistance Burn Fierce And Bright” Ukraine humanitarian fundraising compilation via Copenhagen‘s Janushoved

  • Amsterdam based experimental /broken beats /dub /acid /electro /leftfield techno producer and Galactic Funk co-founder, Bertram “Tercel Dub” off of debut EP “Kibra Cadena” on Dead Channel Records  

Louisville‘s Dead Channel Records label always brings out leftfield proposals not immediately catchy at first listen, but always absolutely intriguing and electrifying. This time the Dutch producer Bertram unleashes a raw, distorted, and hypnotic groovy jam in constant mutation between pounding obsessive percussive patterns and broken rhythms, syncopated and stammering bass, hip-hop resonances, droning strains and chopped vocals to produce a disturbing and at the same time engaging vibrant dancing vortex of chaotic tension and relentless visceral hypnosis.
