Weekly Electronic Music Tips // JUNE – JULY #26-24

PICKS OF THE WEEK:

  • 鬼面 : GWI MYEON PODCAST 041 // YEARS OF DENIAL

Killer set by the masterful like-minded duo of musician/DJ/producer Jerome Tcherneyan and performance artist/DJ Barkosina Hanusova, to carve a meticulously sewn powerful and obscure journey into a turbulent metallic, pounding and droning tapestry of Techno, EBM, Post-Punk and Industrial sounds.

  • Russian acid /IDM /braindance electronica producer p1nkf1re “It’s Ok” from “Red” EP [Analogical Force]

Russian producer deftly pulls from classic Warp/Skam/Rephlex-inspired hazy enveloping realms of thought-provoking IDM electronica, through tinkling and rolling warm synth melodies layered with slowly evolving steady dry drum loops and burbling bass grooves, to weave a vibrant shivering cosy web of stirring melancholy.

  • Catania, Italy acid /jazz /nu-disco /breakbeat /soundtrack /cinematic /Balearic /downtempo DJ and producer Dario Aiello, aka My Friend Dario “Keep On Cruising” off upcoming new album “Senza Estate” [Hell Yeah Recordings]

Just to herald early sultry summer vibes, who better than ‘My Friend Dario‘ is able, through a sun-kissed refined array of smooth swaying rhythms, rubbery bass grooves, swirling spindly nostalgic synth motifs and pulsing lush cinematic strings, to concoct such a laid-back Balearic reverie.

  • UK psych /dub /post-punk /trance /tribal /ethnic /techno hardware producer Al Wootton “Albacete Knife” title track of “Albacete Knife” EP 12″ [TRULE]

The first foretaste of four ‘raw and bristling psychedelic techno dubs’ is a sultry enigmatic tribal groove jam-packed with heavily rolling, crackling and clattering percussions, dappled by eerie dubbed-out vibrations, clanging cowbells, and visceral obsessive frequencies to pull the listener into a trippy paranoia-indusing headspace.
