This week’s one-hour set delves deep into unpredictable tripping and stompy electro, breakbeat, acid, post-punk and EBM-tinged territories and beyond, replete of buzzing and fizzing driving energy, from Moscow‘s dynamic production duet Grisha and Ivan a.k.a. Odopt. Recorded live at “Bravers” showcase last month at Moscow Mutabor‘s garage floor, embedded with all the urgency and anticipation after a 6-month lockdown.

  • Colombian Electro/Industrial/EBM/techno producer Magnum Opus “Dark Vibrations (Persona Non Grata feat. The Worm Of Apocalypse Re-Fix)” off upcoming EP “Dark Vibrations” on Mosaique Records

Another crackling and blistering cut from a Colombian producer that releases urgent electrical currents to splice restless jolts of lurking bassline menace with a relentless industrial crawl, cast in cold clashing and flickering beats, swirling into swathes of zipping rhythms and airy desperate vocals, wearing reminiscent of Al Jourgensen’s scathing gasps circa “The Mind Is a Terrible Thing to Taste”
