Scottish DJ/Producer swærm based in Amsterdam delivers sheer energy and sweeping catharsis from a 2 hours showdown overflowing with a rhythmic and noisy lethal combination of Techno, Industrial and EBM.

  • Arizona-based breaks /acid /bass /electro DJ-producer Illektrolab – “In The Tube” from upcoming 12″ EP “Temporal Interference” on brokntoys

Energizing, intricate sci-fi drum & bass cut from Arizona‘s producer, that mechanically bounces through quick, tense and crisp breakbeats along with pulsating smooth basslines, mottled by bright spaced-out synthetic breezes of chilly spookiness and compulsive viscous acidic turbulences. Absolutely do not miss.

  • Danish jazz /Balearic /electronic DJ-producer Anders Ponsaing feat. Claus Højensgård – “The Man with the Red Face” from “African Skies” EP on Music for Dreams

A slowly enveloping, warming, sensual downtempo and jazzy sound affair that unfurls through groovy smoothly crisp percussions, intoxicating bass pulses and sparkling synths, stunningly decorated by soul-tingling trumpet blows, making for your dazed chill-out summery Balearic sunsets.

  • New Mexico EBM /electro /dark disco duo Roswell Brothers Feat. Nyx – “Closed World (Favio Inker Remix)” from “Closed World” EP soon on NEIN Records
