Weekly Electronic Music Tips #18

Picks Of The Week:

  • Saint Petersburg-based Ukrainian eclectic psych trance electronic dj/producer Konstantin Isayev (aka Volta Cab), Rambal Cochet “Ottoman Empire” off upcoming EP on Dark Leader                                                         

Saint Petersburg-based prolific producer as usual masterly blends shades of disco and EBM with Middle Eastern vibes and goa-trance suggestions over a huge  hypnotizing bassline that can’t help but set your feet on fire.

  • New York / Philippines experimental /industrial /techno artist THE DAG “Dasal” from the EP “Bansa” on Raven Sigh                                                                                                                                                              

Pretty interesting and varied EP between heavy techno, atmospheric dissonance, industrial clangs, harsh noise suggestions. Dark, visceral and disturbing, yet equally attractive and fascinating.

  • Frankfurt am Main-based experimental /ambient /electronic artist and musician Johanna Odersky, aka IKU “To A New Age” from the new s/t album on Vienna’s Amen label

Young experimental artist ‘sculptures’ a unique concoction of sounds and textures apparently chaotic, albeit appealingly organic merging acoustic and electronic, glitch and IDM, soothing ambience and claustrophobic dissonance, dream-like synth-pop and ominous spoken word, for a bewitching and intriguing listening experience.
