Weekly Electronic Music Tips #26

Peaks Of The Week:

  • Beijing based electronic audio/visual duo Zaliva-D “Flutter” from the new EP “Calling” on Shangai‘s SVBKVLT Label

After an full-length on Knekelhuis earlier this year, Chinese visionary electronic duo are back with 4 originals plus 3 blistering remixes. Concise, punchy and hypnotic throughout, loaded with intensely crackling and clanging warped beats and ominous taut atmospherics, fueled by slivers of dissonant noise and haunting eerie vocal inserts, it leaves you completely breathless.

  • Buenos Aires, Argentina synth-pop/electro/synth-punk artist Agostina Mauro, aka CADENA NACIONAL “Flechas En La Cara” off of V/A [ODM001] via of dolls and murder                                                                                                                                                    

First compilation to celebrate 1 year of the dance/live event organization based in Buenos Aires, Argentina called of dolls and murder including 17 artists/producers from the region. A great opportunity to explore the fervent and overlooked Argentinian techno, industrial, EBM, synth-punk, experimental, even darkwave scene. While I added the already familiar Balvanera in the darkwave list, the track from young artist Agostina Mauro is a rumbling, hypnotic electro/synth-punk belter, but many gems are scattered here and there, just check it out!  

  • Australian lo-fi electro producer STEVE ROACH “Ruined” from cassette album “Gut” on Melbourne via Berlin-based Potatoheadz Records.

Lo-fi, dark, raw and ominous electro, with synth-punk leanings, from the Aussie producer Steve Roach, visceral, hard-edged and terribly intriguing.
