High energy, scorching and striking set as usual from Naples finest Nicola Cimmino (aka Nathaniel), courtesy of London’s Unmasked podcast, under his Sharplines , expect ‘techno, marching industrial, acid and EBM, together with a great attention to sound design and love for gritty textures’.

  • Italian psych /slow-mo /downtempo /cosmic /electronic production duo of Giorgio Giri and Marco Lentano, aka Mushrooms Project “Tum Angola” from “Caldosavana” EP on Special place recordings

Tension and mystery weave effortlessly giving life to slow-mo dilated wavy sequences, permeates by persistent muddy lysergic vapors, built by deep organic bass vibrations, washed in translucent enveloping synth swirls, and twinkling piling chords, amidst simmering hypnotic tribal rhythms, towards imaginative projections sprinkled with arcane Afro samples, in an oneiric dance-inducing trippy flow replete of fascinating exotic suggestions.

  • Paris, France post-punk /dark electro /Italo /dark disco/techno artist DJ Varsovie – “Tes Derniers Signes (Kendal “Cheesy Crush” Remix)” from the single “Tes Derniers Signes” on his own Intervision label

Killer Italo remix by Toulouse‘s Ritmo Fatale label boss and DJ/producer Kendal to inject further intrigue and shimmering dark energy to the original with retro hypnotic tight, drum-filled patterns, stuttering, brooding bassline, and trance-inducing glowing synth swirls to inject relentless winding melancholy around alluring deep croons laced with affliction and nostalgia.

  • Texas / Kentucky ambient /drone collaboration between Damien Duque (City Of Dawn) & Jason T. Lamoreaux (The Corrupting Sea), City of Dawn & The Corrupting Sea “3 A.M. Thoughts” from the album “Mosaic of Senses” upcoming on Somewherecold Records 

Expanded flowing hazy modulations and diaphanous melodic lines combine to form a mesmeric dazzling harmonic carpet, punctuated by gently resonant echoing drops of early morning inward-looking abstraction, that unfurl over a calm immersion into contemplative dreamscapes, where the sound is shaped into a soothing caressing breeze to heal the senses.
