Richard Misrach, 1983

PICKS OF THE WEEK:

  • This is Not My Future 010 w/ METAMAN (Fade Radio // 02.05.2024)                                                                       

Old school and futuristic Acid-speckled Broken Beats crash and harmonize seamlessly in the one-hour radio set of broken beats by Athens-based Greek Electro producer Metaman.

  • Parisian industrial /acid /rave /psych /breakbeat /electro DJ-production duo Minimum Syndicat “The mantis-priests have gathered” from the debut LP “S.C.H.O.R.L.” 12″ [KILLEKILL]

Other Parisian subgenre-defying electronic visionaries unleash relentless bouncy and pounding broken drum kicks, obsessively punctuated by a heavy burden of sinister rattling industrial-fueled hitting momentums, layer eerie ghostly morphing vocal laments with throbbing low-end frenzy and doomy droning synth swells, to evoke the feeling of being isolated and emotional amid a relentless swirl of mechanized frequencies.

  • The Prodigy – “Baby’s Got A Temper (PRIMIT REMIX)” (acid /electro-punk remix of 2002 The Prodigy’s minor classic from Seoul‘s producer)

Korean producer injects further breakbeat fire and swirling acid inflexions into the primal, unrelenting in-your-face signature aggression from the mostly underrated, myself included, and controversial 2002 The Prodigy minor classic. R.I.P. Keith Flint.

  • French ambient /dub /exotic /cosmic /tribal /leftfield /psych /wave /techno /slo-mo/electro producer-DJ and Maturre label head honcho, Jonathan Cambefort, aka Poperttelli “Simplifie” from “Disjointed Dreams” LP 12″ [Macadam Mambo]

The genre-bending, cinematic and visionary French electronic sound traveller lands in the kindred spirit Macadam Mambo label to delve into uncharted grippingly expansive and immersive, both cosmic and futuristic dark arcane domains, peppered with warm exotic and dubwise flavours, pulsing, roiling, stumbling, and droning at slo-mo trippy pace, to enshroud with a vibrant repeated mantra of “simplifie.”
