Xiamen, China-based, Bulgarian dark mastermind Petar Tassev has been rocking his own brand of Nurolektro since 2003. He’s responsible for a vast array of menacing titles on labels such as Touchin’ Bass, Kommando 6, Musar and the infamous Bunker – along with about 40 others. Back and forth between ‘Shock Corridor’ to ‘Invasion of the Body Snatchers’ horror/apocalyptic-like soundtracks, a perfect occasion to plunge into unpredictable, rugged and doomy MANASYt‘s Electro sound.

  • Seattle, WA rave /EBM /industrial /techno DJ-producer Vox Sinistra “Angelic Forces” debut single

Hard-working and respected DJ of the dark underground electronic scene, Vox Sinistra ventures dauntless into production duty, driving cold sinister auras to combine obsessive ominous synth melodies, eerie haunted airs, crashing, and stomping propulsive rhythms, and buzzing seismic low ends into dangerous high-energy distorted dancefloor vibes where frightened female and menacing male religious-themed vocal clips terrorize, with relentless authority, non-stop into the darkest hours of the night.

  • Albanian-born, Southern Italian techno /electro producer Alboren Bani AKA D3070 “Dark Valley (The Exaltics Remix)” from upcoming “Phantom Operation” EP 12″ [LDI Records]

Equally groovy, dystopic and futuristic old-school Electro-Funk treatment by dynamic German electro stalwart The Exaltics, that bounces and rolls through frantic elastic bass line pulses to drive breathless adrenaline through swirling tunnels of heady sparkling constellations, energetic doom-laden dance beats, swarming alienating synth flashes, and eerie ominous drone tones to open sinister portals into subconscious dimensions of unknown fear and shadowy desire.      

  • Vilnius-based, Lithuanian acid /wave /breakbeat /techno /electro producer 5ZYL “The Dancer” from upcoming “Perplexity” EP [FERMA]

The first preview from Vilnius‘ producer with a secretive and seductive Wave-tinged Electro workout, that sways through groovy body-moving broken beats to drive dancefloor dilemmas along buzzing bouncy bass line agendas, skipping and scratching footwork, and breathless female coercions to swing, break, and hop with glitchy darting effects into the wee hours of dawn.
