  • Strange But Dance Music #133: NINECHECKER                                                                                                            

Liverpool-bred Dave Clarke-inspired producer Ninechecker, after short stints in London and Berlin, relocated to Toronto, reassembled his studio and started making his own interpretation of Electro, taking inspiration from field recordings, 90s Jungle, 808 heavy Miami Bass and Trap, Techno, weird, unsettling ambience, and dark, doomy electronics to create his own ‘Gutter Electro’. A Brokntoys EP coming out at the end of the year, enough said…

  • Lithuanian industrial /EBM /psych /acid /breakbeat /techno /electronica artist Liudas Lazauskas, aka Roe Deers “The Enter Of Sun” from the upcoming album “XXX015 – Roe Deers” [XXX]

Cross-genre Lithuanian electronic sound wanderer with a trippy and mercurial downtempo voyage to awaken introspective, rousing, and vibrant perspectives with stark metallic metronomic percussions, deep droning fogs, pulsing bass grooves, and swirling and resonant icy bright melodies, to harmonize disconnected frequencies into an illuminating horizon of endless possibility.

Unpredictable genre-shredding Athenian electronic producer concocts a heady gamut of Breaks, Jungle, Acid, Techno, Industrial, EBM and Big Beat elements, to build up relentless oppressive urban landscapes carved by rumbling and cutting tight breakbeats, booming bass inflections, warping aggressive vocal samples, and jolting, buzzing synth strains, to ignite a heady, primal dancing storm of high-energy disruption and chaos.
