  • Strange But Dance Music #79: IVNA JI                                                                                                                       

Courtesy of Russian podcast Strange But Dance Music [SBDM], Zagreb based, Croatian DJ and producer Ivna Ji, with notable releases on well-respected labels such as Brokntoys and 20/20 Vision, boldly and organically explores an experimental, leftfield and sharper end of the electro spectrum, whilst not forgetting the deep, spacey and melodic qualities.  

  • Belgrade, Serbia ambient /ethnic /trance /bass /breaks /tribal electronic producer and kepasaparadoks label head, Cuban Chamber of Commerce – “Rolex Around My Knee” from V/A “Sexy Summer Hits” on Belgrade’s YES

Part of ‘Sexy Summer Hits’ compilation by the always compelling Belgrade‘s YES imprint, a trippy and sultry downtempo chugger that explores primal shamanic dance realms, stirring tribal percussive rhythms to drive untamed energy and anticipation through chiming and crisp tones, bouncy droning low ends, groovy baritone introspections and edgy high-pitched synth spirals to open obstructed passages of clarity and insight with depth-defying mesmeric exotic visions.

  • Parisian breaks /electro producer and 3 Feet Deep Records co-founder, Pépé Elle – “Twisted” from the upcoming “Contradiction” EP on 3 Feet Deep Records                                                                                           

Bass-heavy electro jam from the highly fresh and talented producer from Paris, that blends obsessively serene bright synth swathes with heavy stomping and marching rhythms splattering groovy bouncy bass vibrations through minimal yet chaotic vocal explosions, whilst jittery hypnotic strains zip and zap electric jolts of frenetic energy through tumultuous sways of serious dancefloor moves.

  • London-based EBM /dark wave /industrial techno DJ-producer Oliver Gibson, AKA Oliver “Effete” from the upcoming V/A [SHARPVA004] compilation EP on Sharped Records

A couple of gripping techno cuts this week by London-based producer Oliver, from which I would pick for its stark, crunchy, tinny rhythms that bounce through a hypnotic snappy, marching pace along with swift buzzing bass oscillations, assertive detached vocal female allure, and spurious warped icy-bright synth strains, to stack rising and falling momentums of epic punching bursts into an obsessive wave of tension releasing bliss.
