Picks Of The Week:

  • Paris, France EBM/dark techno producer Fred Terror, aka ILLNURSE “What You Say” from upcoming “All Day” EP on Intervision.

Parisian dark techno producer Illnurse previews a dark and fierce techno workout propelled by militant kicks, fast-paced drums, interspersed by filthy vocal-samples, riddled with abrasive distorted metallic edges, that makes you feeling invigorated and euphoric by its dense and stark amount of energetic yet restrained kinetic edgy intensity. 

  • Lisbon-based experimental/IDM/jungle/electro producer and Eye For An Eye Recordings head, Gonçalo Salgado, aka Lake Haze “Deleted_Consciousness” from the debut album “Glitching Dreams” via Uk’s E-Beamz label

Portuguese ace producer Lake Haze drops an IDM-tinged electro LP littered with hypnotically atmospheric bright synth and otherworldly arpeggios, tinny breaks, and frisky beats, richly tingling and tantalizing glitchy motifs making for an absolutely mind-bending and arresting top-notch debut.

  • Dark ambient/minimal wave/electronic solo project of former member of English 80s electronic band Shoc Corridor, Chris Davis – “Traction” off of the upcoming EP “Travelling Light” on Electronic Emergencies             

Member of 80s British electronic cult band Shoc Corridor, Chris Davis comes up with a futuristic, and alienated preview of cold, dark electronics driven by repetitive taut rhythms and profoundly droning bassline, cut through by stuttering, hissing and slightly dissonant inserts, awash by solemn, spacious, frozen synth drifts , nurturing a lingering sense of menace and sorrow of strong emotional charge to create a highly immersive and cinematic listening experience.
