PICKS OF THE WEEK:

  • Karagi ಏ BENEDIKT FREY

Courtesy of Parisian Karagi channel, German producer, DJ and R.i.O. label co-founder carries us on an electrifying journey into experimental electronic music with a ‘knack for curating strange yet captivating sounds’ delving into Kraut, Dub, Post-Punk, Wave, Psychedelic, and Downtempo mind-bending realms.

  • Glasgow acid /techno /electro DJ, producer & Lifeforms label head honcho, Gavelman – “Ashes In The Wind” from the upcoming cassette album “Fata Morgana” [Dead Channel Records]

Glasgowian producer churns out raw, twisted and detuned psyched-futuristic-acidic-electro jams with loose sharp twingings of stomping beats, eerie enigmatic strings and snake charming 303 bleeping addiction to experience unpredictable mutant twitches and flashes on every cutting-edge dancefloor.

  • New York-based EBM /industrial /electro noise producer Michael Renfield (aka Soillodge), R010R “Augment Unreality” from “R02” EP

Nuanced high-octane Electro-Noise discharges coalesce with clanging Industrial streaks in a turbulent and cathartic compound full of tense grim visions, twisted fantasies, and mesmeric transfigurations, amid driving skittering and slamming rhythms, buzzing seesaw low ends, harsh jarring frequencies and ominous and desolate angsty glacial strings, to throb relentlessly while hopelessly lost in an overarching dystopian ambience.

  • Dublin, Ireland dark disco /techno /chug /psych /downtempo /electronic producer Eric Whelan, aka Steady State “The MultiKlang”

Irish producer outstretches slashing snare beats and murky oscillating bass grooves to lure into a downtempo impenetrable dark rabbit hole that simmers, rumbles, and chugs, intricately layered with clattering chromatic sheen, buzzing echoing menace and exotic female vocal magnetism, in a relentless sultry yet haunted locked-in trance that seems to never end.
