‘Darkness on the Edge of Town’ by Josh Sinn

  • MAGNUM OPUS / Colapso PS02                                                                                                                             

Courtesy of Colapso collective based in Mexico City, Colombian dark electronics DJ / producer Felipe Novoa, aka Magnum Opus, injects, in about a cathartic hour ripe with powerful yet melodic Industrial, EBM, Electro, Techno, all the anger, pain and frustration over the state crimes and institutional violence that are plaguing his Country, hidden by local and western media censorship. A huge mobilization of international solidarity is needed to support popular demands and stop the ongoing massacre.

  • Strasbourg, France techno /dark electro producer Vondkreistan – “Second Signal feat Iris Capricorn (Original Mix)”                                                                                                                                                                           

The always intriguing Alsatian electronic artist rolls out intense wistful textures to weave diving blinking synth spirals, dry clapping beats, sparkling and tremoring bass lines, and hypnotically aloof, terse female vocals into a stunning neon-lit, noir-ish electro dancefloor number pausing urgently into a rising glittering alarm of unwinding tension.

  • Dutch industrial acid dark electronic producer Boris Post aka Eindkrak ” End Of The World Brane” off upcoming V/A “Endless Decay Volume 1” [Dead Channel Records]                                                                       

Dutch electronic experimentalist, through skipping and crawling obsessive rhythms, buzzing synths and droning deviant chants, forges an off-kilter jittery and warped dimension of urban industrial mist. Not to be missed the upcoming tape compilation via Louisville, Kentucky based label Dead Channel Records for further freakish, dissonant and gripping offerings.

  • Indonesian cosmic /tribal /ethnic /disco /electronic artist Omar Joesoef – “Chants Of Gorontalo (Cosmo Vitelli What was the question again Remix)” from “Rituals of Gorontalo” EP on Hard Fist                                    

Veteran French electronic traveller and I’m a Cliché label head, Cosmo Vitelli, unwinds a mind-boggling, trippy world of esoteric nuances, cloaked in droning frequencies, through heady, airy snaking synth expansions, twitching ominous bassline and stacked, mesmeric ritual rhythms, into an earth-shattering spacey tribalistic dancefloor dimension.

  • Düsseldorf electronic /kraut /folktronica /experimental multidisciplinary artist Viktoria Wehrmeister (also known as the “better half” of Tolouse Low Trax on their collaboration project Toresch), DECHA “Ser” from upcoming second LP “La Vida te Busca” on Malka Tuti
