  • Abaddon Podcast 229 // EKATA                                                                                                                                      

London-based DJ & producer EKATA spins plenty of ominous grooves, heavy snares and kicks, intertwined with sci-fi/acid textures and haunting synths, definitely, one of the most intriguing up-and-coming Electro devoted artists around.

  • L.A.-based lo-fi acid broken beat /leftfield /electro Dj-producer Michael Padgett, aka Ole Mic Odd “Get It Right” from upcoming cassette album “Gutted Not Rotted” [Dead Channel Records]                                   

L.A. mutant sound craftsman with a death-defying both crooked and gurgling, blistering acid-splattered electro sweep, that bounces its way through razor-edged skeletal beats, interspersed with mesmeric thudding kicks and ceaselessly obsessive jittery biting basslines, encircled by icy bright alienated synth glares and shadowy vocodered voices, to electrify both feet and brain into a surreal dancefloor groove.

  • South West of France ambient /acid /downtempo /bass /chug /psych /organic /electronic producer and Reptilian Business Records co-founder, Da Iguana – “Torbellino” off V/A “Hikuri 01” compilation [Nativa Records]

Fundraising compilation to support the cause of preserving the sacred plant Hikuri, better known as “Peyote” from Mexico, in danger of extinction. French producer Da Iguana casts a mesmerizing, immersive, and hallucinatory aura amongst its crispy swaying tribal percussive, warm organic groovy bass pulses, acidic rippling echoes, and fluting arcane swirling melodies to induce metaphysical headspace through ecstatic cathartic dance.
