Weekly Electronic Music Tips #41

  • MUZIKALIST – @ Warehouse 02/10/20 (Propaganda Club / Moscow)                                                               

The weekly live set comes from ace Russian producer/DJ and Hypnotic Connection imprint head Muzikalist, dubbed as the ‘gray cardinal of the Kaliningrad underground, and a true ascetic of the dance faith’, straight from a recent Warehouse party at Moscow‘s Propaganda, with a bouncing, trancey and propulsive mix of electro, acid, breaks and techno. Big!

  • German darkwave/Industrial/techno/EBM artist (1/2 half of Aesthetic Emotions) Thibeaux, aka THBX “Room” from upcoming cassette EP “Without You” soon on Moscow’s Routine Records                                      

In an intriguing blend of post-punk, techno, EBM and beyond, up and coming, busy (an incoming EP for SOIL too) German artist Thibeaux, aka THBX triggers ominous bass throbs that expand shuttering, cutting beats strewn into mechanical dancefloor rhythms that rise and fall in a droning, warp speed around slow, callous male vocal’s subconscious stream of secret transformations.

  • Moscow based electro/EBM/dark techno Dj/producer and Maxima Culpa Records co-founder, GEGEN MANN “You Are Human” new 2-track single

In a fervent and prolific string of impressive creative momentum, Moscow based producer instigates dark and dense industrial daunting moods that ignite icily sinister bright and sharp synth bleeds to inch along the sputtering buzzing bassline oscillations, cut with steady resonant jarring and clanging hits etched in mechanical shuffles, while gravelly cracked male vocals elicit paranoid deception into the trance-inducing flow of dystopian dancefloor rhythms.

  • Berlin-based deep techno/dark disco/cosmic producer Pyrame – “The Fine Line Between Us (Local Suicide Remix)” off upcoming “The Pace Of Everything That Lives (Remixes)” EP on his own Thisbe Recordings            

In a week of two mesmerizing ‘techno-disco’ remixes from Berlin-based DJ/production couple Vamparela & Brax Moody, our fave is the duo’s Pyrame remodel that unleashes steady pounding kicks and cold whipping claps to build tension along live wire rumbling bass oscillations, engendering layers of hypnotic awareness with vanished voice samples, echoing deception into a sensual dance spell dripping with an acidic serpentine flow.
