Weekly Electronic Music Tips – May#19-21

  • Petlya Podcast №001 – MONOTONEGATIVE                                                                                                         

Weekly eclectic ‘industrial’ set from Moscow musician Monotonegativ, part of the Petlya/Петля project, who would like to establish ‘freedom, equality, hedonism’. Dubbed as ‘Obscure sound schizophrenia. Industrial porn. Alchemical cyber carousel’, Monotonegativ spans from wave, techno, post-punk, synth, EBM and beyond, not bad at all as a first transmission.

  • Buenos Aires-based industrial /EBM /post-punk /dark techno DJ and producer and Of Dolls And Murder label head Damian Visgard, aka Anti-Yo “Acatar A Rajatabla” from V/A – “Los Insurgentes Tienen Razón part.I” via OSM tapes                                                                                                                                             

The first part of a fundraising compilation series with a crop of underground international electronic artists in support of the popular mobilizations, that are shaking the Latin American continent, against the corrupted fascist government of US puppet Iván Duque. A war against the civilian population is underway, under the silence of the accomplice Western media, with brutal and criminal repression by police, army and paramilitary gangs. The cry of anger and pain of the Argentine producer Anti-Yo embodies it all up perfectly.
The infamous rotten neoliberal capitalist beast is in crisis and reorganizing itself, but for this reason, it is even more dangerous and ferocious. The same is happening in Palestine right these days, act now and support the Red Condor Collective.

  • Toulouse based French/Lebanese industrial /EBM /ethnic /electro /techno producer Psaum, aka Arabian Panther “Colonisation” off upcoming V/A “Intermezzo Due” on Dischi Autunno

Toulouse warrior, as topical as he ever was before, with adrenaline, hypnotic and edgy slab of pounding syncopated Middle-East-tinged industrialized techno, surrounded by Arabic samples, dramatic flashing synths and desolate smeared icy drifts, charged by buzzing basslines and rolling stacks of clattering ethnic percussion, throbbing dramatically like a suffering heart imprisoned under sharp, rugged creases, to epitomize the grief and desperation of a chained population.

  • Colorado‘s industrial /funk /techno /electro DJ-producer Johan Sebastian Bot, aka DVS NME “Mechanical Solidarity” off the new album “The Electro Manifesto” via his label Dark Science Electro

The indefatigable electro stalwart from Colorado returns, not to forget his longstanding post-punk mixes, as happened in the last three years, with a themed album: after his tributes to ‘Asia’ and ‘Dopplereffekt’, this time chose to pay homage to the writing of the socialist revolutionary Karl Marx, with every song title having a nod to the German philosopher’s economic and political theory. Established heavily on the sounds of classic Electro machines, equally disturbing and hallucinated, atmospheric and introspective, funky and danceable, spatial and emotional, 25 tracks that create an immersive and trance-inducing maze to get lost in, by exploring the interaction man-machine, a theme Marx was the first to deal with.
