  • A Thousand Details – ATD Podcast 35                                                                                                                       

The weekly long mix comes from up-and-coming Portuguese techno DJ/producer (with ambient and drone music side projects) Gustavo Lima a.k.a. A Thousand Details from Porto, head of ATD Records and Reaktivate Records. ATD brings us into a gripping and hypnotic, as well as swift and hard-hitting, dark and deep journey through off-kilter facets of techno.       

  • Greek dark ambient/industrial/Middle East/damaged techno producer from Athens, NO/ON “Unoccupied Nests (Zevla Remix)” from cassette album “Fajir” (dedicated to the people of Palestine and their rights) on ZELA

Essential DIY ltd. tape release from Athenian experimental producer NO/ON, with an intriguing blend of industrial soundscapes and traditional elements from the Middle East, dedicated to the people of Palestine and their, increasingly forgotten and violated, rights. Our fave remix comes by Vanila label affiliated, DJ and producer Zevla (one half of NOOR1) with steadily hypnotic pummelling beats erupt in a relentless trample of industrial echoes and sinister, tightly rapid-fire bassline, whilst minimal, detached male vocals incite deep rage into the unstoppable rhythms of deliverance for the oppressed population of Palestine.

  • Danish dungeon synth/dark electronic/synthwave/kosmische artist Offermose “Stilhedens Tårn” title track from upcoming sophomore LP “Stilhedens Tårn”, co-released by Third Coming Records and Pomperipossa  

Danish dark synth sorcerer unveils his third and most menacing and meandering chapter of his impending ‘New Dark Age’, the title track “Tower Of Silence” blows evocative misty cinematic ambiences, soaring into a desolate sweeping and lustrous tide of dramatic majesty, swirling in spatial expansions, fraught with fear and pain, around fluttering swift synth tinkles, as ghostly, treacherous sibilant vocals release low howls of apocalyptic doom into the vast pull of destruction, then flow weightlessly in free zero gravity.   

  • Portuguese experimental/acid/dark electro DJ/producer Gonçalo Salgado, aka Lake Haze “Atomic Level” off the new EP of the same name on Russian imprint Private Persons                                                                   

Portuguese producer delivers one of his unmistakable deep yet powerful dark and wistful electro through jams through spastic sputtering acidic bassline voltage that ignites urgent robotic vocals, sizzling and stomping beats, and warm, soaring dramatic synth swathes to form a pulsating cyber force of enshrouding mechanical dancefloor rhythms.
