  • MORGUE “RAVE IN THE CAVE OFF SIESTES”                                                                                                         

MORGUE, a project based in Toulouse dedicated to EBM \ New-Beat \ Industrial \ Noise sounds, mesmerizes and seduces with an atmospheric ‘post record after rave in the cave bar’ at La Mécanique des fluides in Lyon.

  • Barcelona, Spain synth wave /techno /electro producer Gonzalo Sendón, AKA Asymetric80 – “Rituals” from the upcoming V/A compilation 12″ EP “429″ on Waste Editions

Catalan producer Asymetric80 dives into a frigid, mysterious, mechanical as well as hypnotizing and futuristic electro journey, punctuated by foreboding dialogue samples, through dark buzzing bass undulations, lashing rhythms, sci-fi fired icy synth glares, and eerie twinkling tones, to swirl and sway hopelessly into modern dystopic dancefloor visions.

  • Athens, Greek experimental /industrial /techno /dark electronics production duo Petros Spatharos & Bekha Mujiri – “Lies” from upcoming V/A “The Second Coming” compilation on Greek DIY label/collective Negative Sciences                                                                                                                                                 

As an intriguing teaser from the forthcoming second V/A compilation by Athenian DIY label/collective Negative Sciences, Greek atmospheric industrial techno experimentalist Petros Spatharos teams up with Georgian-native and fellow Athens denizen Bekha Mujiri injecting dark, sinister deceptions to malign the mind’s eye of impending dread by rotating menacing atmospherics into hypnotic builds, whilst drugged coma-inducing vocals release slurred warnings into stacked marching authoritarian slashing beats, swelling, droning bass line menace and scattering metallic echoes of fear and angst into a heady wasteland of mesmeric dancefloor doom.

  • Italy-based industrial /EBM /techno /electro /analog synth artist NOVOSTI KULTURI – “Robot Beta” from upcoming 8-track album “NOVI KULT” [Meta Moto] .

Italian-based ‘Moscow Discow’ producer broadcast the early analog outer-space transmissions from the upcoming album with an industrialized mechanical electro cut surrounded by arcane Soviet-era vocal samples and decoded by stark hard-hitting snares, crispy double claps, ominous pulsing and stuttering droning bassline, haunted by icy bright dazzling synth swathes laced with swirling middle eastern suggestions to expand mind-bending manifestations into frigid spacey realms, envisioned through the twisted lens of a futuristic utopia.
