Made of two young resident DJs from the Parisian collective @atriumcorp, with the alliance of their strength, the violence of their sounds and the beauty of their harmony, Midnight Chaos intends to bring a fresh and electrifying air of renewal to the EBM-fueled Techno Industrial scene.

  • Croatian/Slovenian EBM /electro /synth electronic music producer duo Le Chocolat Noir and Christian Kroupa (Alleged Witches), AKA Black Dot “Morality Of Violence” from upcoming “Structure Without Tomorrow” EP 12″ [Mechatronica]

Slavic duo ignites an obsessive and ominous bass-driven New Beat-dusted, Dark Electro ride laced with neurotic Suicide-esque vibes, enclosed in shadowy surreal Industrialized domains. to conjure swirling, hovering synth swarms, compulsive heavy throbbing low ends, relentless punchy snares, rolling hypnotic crisp percussive loops, and distant child-like cries from a primeval underground lair of sinister menace, where wicked warped vocals gloat, taunt and gaslight with venomous airs to stir the bewitched masses into a raging storm of vengeance.

  • Leipzig, Germany techno /breaks /electro new project of DJ Unisex & Friedrich Ernst, AKA Self Learning System – “Deep Sea” off upcoming V/A “Our Own Algorithm VOL.2″ EP 12” [DISTRITO 91]

Heady, vibrant and futuristic Detroit-style Electro-Funk jam from Leipzig-based duo’s very first composed cut, ignites high-energy synth melodies, skipping punchy broken beats, prowling fidgety bass lines, and glaring stabs into a trippy nostalgic scene, lined with stuttering “Deep Sea” vocal repetitions, alarming swirling flashes, and bouncy oscillations to get the dancefloor grooves moving until the early am light.

  • Moscow-based EBM /trance /acid /electro /techno producer Kovyazin D “Moscow Central Circle” part of upcoming V/A “Eight Years Of Love” compilation [System 108]

Moscow producer combines Acid /Electro /Techno /Trance and EBM elements in a dizzying and urgent train ride obsession along Moscow Central Circle to inspire mechanical marching beats, crisp rolling percussions, rumbling and throbbing acidified low ends, airy rotating effects, and liquid trancey synth stab melodies into an all-night excursion, rising and falling in hypnotic time-lapsed momentums to light grey doomy Moscow airs with restless frenetic dancefloor vibes.
