PICKS OF THE WEEK:

  • CARRIER – “Pre Millennium Witchcraft (19951998)” Mixtape [Berceuse Heroique ]                                   

Dead­ly 70-minute ses­sion from UK club tech­ni­cian Car­ri­er (Shifted, Covered in Sand, Commix) hail­ing his roots in mid-late ​‘90s Drum&Bass with a ridicu­lous­ly strong mix­tape of pre-mil­len­ni­al, post-junglist rufige — 100% firecracker heyday D&B brilliance, still cutting edge & futuristic 3 decades later.

  • Brooklyn-based ambient /dub techno artist, Eden Aurelius “Want 2” from “Plateau” EP 12″ [co:clear]

“A lacework of chiller dub-techno and ambient sparkle, crafted via recorded material, astute sampling, and live instrumentation”. The first teaser is an immersive journey amidst warm-hazed enveloping atmospheric pads, crystalline, chimey and chilly echoing frequencies, smooth bass pulses, and subtly tight crispy percussions, helping to loosen the body and mind whilst abandoning ourselves to the mesmerizing unrestrained resonance of the sound.

  • Berlin-based EBM /techno /minimal electro-wave /synth-punk Mexican DJ-producer and Miseria label head honcho, Carlos GrabStein, a.k.a. 89st “Lessons Of Pain” from upcoming V/A “Brutality III” compilation [Brutal Forms]

High energy uncompromising return after a while from the Mexican artist, to unleash harsh, smoldering industrial EBM menace, snapping with crunching and droning low-end energy, sternly thumping drum kick ritual and scowling vocals, for a stark, edgy yet hypnotizing dancefloor experience.

  • Lille, French indie dance /disco /tribal /psych /jungle cumbia /electronic producer and multi-instrumentalist (member of the electronic band, Volcan La Peté), Kubebe – “Pféfi (Original Mix)” Secret Potion #034 series [Playground Records]

The eclectic French musician triggers a churning syncopated mesh-up of tightly skipping beats and sultry crisp rolling cumbia-laced percussion patterns, droning resonant bass vibrations, and alienating obsessive chiming frequencies, to beam trippy and groovy, yet angsty, tropical vibes.
