PICKS OF THE WEEK:

  • La Catastrophe W. CRISTO.GXC Guest CARDINAL & NUN [Mutant Radio 19.06.2024]                                   

Berlin-based, Buenos Aires-bred DJ-producer GHKC shares his bi-monthly show on Mutant Radio with Marseille producer-DJ-musician and performer Loïc Bodjollé aka Cardinal & Nun. Expect a first part of warped and hypnotic shadows and light blur of Techno, Industrial, IDM and Electro from the former, while a second hour of vinyl-only mix with heavy stompers, twisted rhythms, and tortured vocals from the latter.

  • Slovenia/Croatia EBM /techno /dark wave /dark electro duo Christian Kroupa & Le Chocolat Noir, aka Black Dot “Losing Game” from “Love At Glance” EP 12″ [Italo Moderni]

Futuristic Industrial-dusted Dark Electro dancefloor hypnotism from renowned Eastern European duo that bounces and buzzes through a mechanical, at times knocking drum programming, distant rattling strains, unceasingly fueled by the infectious chugging drive of moody rumbling basslines, to exude sinister allure and simmering intensity, whilst swaggering aloof vocals command inflexible dancefloor attention.

  • Bogotà-based new beat /industrial /techno artist Jesús David Restrepo, aka Damaged Clock “Embodied Cognition” title track of the upcoming EP “Embodied Cognition” [Mosaique Records]

Psychedelic Industrial charged alienating mid-tempo cut from Colombian producer brimming with coarse churning low ends, punchy and clattering rhythmic patterns in combination with gliding glowing synth lines, to resonate eerily over a menacing dread-filled atmosphere cast in faint slivers of light.

  • Italian experimental /acid /breaks /techno /dub /slow trance producer Debug – “Too Many Rows (XCI Trippy Schifo Remix)” from “No Data Found” EP [end if;]

A slow-mo, rub-and-tug, spiralling trance-inducing excursion over hypnotic, scraping percussions, warm rubbery bass pulses and rippling squeaky acid plucks, obsessively piercing and wiggling the listener, lost in a heady, subtly disturbing, dancing haze.
