Weekly Electronic Music Tips #14

Peaks Of The Week:

  • Berlin-based New Yorker electronic/dark Italo/new wave/post-punk/coldwave/dark techno producer Luca Venezia aka CURSES “Surrender (Djedjotronic Rmx)” from new ‘Surrender’ EP on Dischi Autunno       

French producer and BoysNoize Records affiliated Djedjotronic provides a throbbing and darker, ebm-tinged, blast of dancefloor energetic edge to the heady blend of electro, techno, post-punk and coldwave of Curses‘ original, with oustanding results.      

  • Leeds, UK ambient electronic project of former Hood and The Declining Winter, Richard Adams (also member of Memory Drawings, Great Panoptique Winter and Northern Exchange), aka WESTERN EDGES “Solid Gold Soul” from the debut album “Prowess” on Athens’ Sound In Silence label                                                   

The new moniker of  Richard Adams breaths rugged breathtaking West Yorkshire landscape suggestions imbued by ethereal chords, meandering melodies, blissful sounds, droning aural textures and minimal rhythm patterns in a hazy vortex of deep heartfelt emotions and enrapturing sensations.

  • Kaunas, Lithuania industrial techno/EBM producer TEATRE “Surrender” from V/A “SELF-AWARE IV” on X-IMG

As usual the compilations from the excellent Berlin-based X-IMG label runs by Emad Dabiri aka SΛRIN don’t miss the opportunity to showcase the best up-and-coming talents from the international industrial techno/EBM scene, new to me is the Lithuanian young producer Teatre with an evocative,droning and pulsating thumper channelling the best bits of 90’s techno.
