Weekly Electronic Music Tips – JUNE #24-22

PICKS OF THE WEEK:
  • ‘No Weapon is Absolute’ by COSMO VITELLI (NTS 2 Radio – June 1st 2022)                                                             

Be assured to expect the unexpected on the monthly awe-inspiring Radio shows by French artists Cosmo Vitelli & Dj Sundae through an extensive exploration into boundless trippy realms of electronic music by unearthing new flavours and exotic blends to expand and stir the listener’s imagination.     

  • Austrian experimental /ambient /IDM /downtempo /electronic musician and Toytronic Records / Tonträger Tapes labels founder, Martin Haidinger, aka GIMMIK “Sonic Poetry” title track from the upcoming LP on n5MD

For those who had explored the, mainly British, Ambient /Leftfield / Downtempo /IDM / Drum & Bass experimental electronic scene of the ’90s, at the time bewildering and absolutely intriguing for the incredible multiplicity of sonic elements inside of it and for their constant renewal and amalgamation, may have come across the name Gimmick, one of the many aliases of the Austrian producer Martin Haidinger, already active since the beginning of the decade through his labels. Personally, I met him through the London label Worm Interface (Tom Jenkinson, Gescom, Fort Lauderdale, the late Mira Calyx etc.), thus I can only be intrigued by the absolutely rhythmically crispy and melodically stunning Gimmick’s first preview track from the upcoming LP. It’s an utterly refined and deeply emotional-ridden “Sonic Poetry” that stacks skipping, rolling beats, stark crisp percussive hits, with wistfully brittle resonant chimes and hypnotic swelling droning synth swirls to awaken dormant daydreams into a bright blooming imaginarium of hope-filled bliss. Once it aroused and satisfied our curiosity, we are anxiously waiting for more.

  • Italian esoteric /Giallo horror /acid /dark synth electronic artist Alessandro Parisi AKA Hesperius Draco “Memories of Sex Desire” from the upcoming 12″ vinyl EP “Directive V” on Frigio Records

Pordenone-native dark electronic artist and producer Alessandro Parisi returns for the first time since the 2016 album “Actus Tragicus”, once again via Frigio Records, with his Esoteric-Disco and Italo-Horror alter ego Hesperius Draco. Slow, spooky and dangerous grooves ignite creeping droning bassline throbs, steadfast dragging rhythms, bursts of flaming synth swathes and eerie warped and sinister swirling sirens into a lonesome elation swept in “Memories of Sex Desire.”

  • Paris-based electronic /dark disco /Balearic /trance /new beat /dark electro producer La Mverte ‘Ashram Temple (The Populists Remix)” from the upcoming “Ashram Temple’ EP [Les Enfers]

While keeping the esoteric and trippy Balearic vibes from the original fellow Parisian producer Yan Wagner (AKA The Populist) weaves 80s-tinged vibrant disco exuberance, winding and sprawling dark bass vibrations and angsty synth brilliance, into a phantasmagoric and rousing shape-shifting dancefloor belter.
