Weekly Electronic Music Tips # 42

  • Collaboration between Saint-Petersburg‘s Dj/producer and MSQ Label head Alexander Moralez and Berlin-based New-Yorker legendary techno/ hardcore/ EBM producer The Horrorist, Moralez & The Horrorist – “Sleep When You Die (Original Mix)” from the new EP on Mosaique Records

The new collaborative track, mentioned in the recent interview, oozes with an unmistakable addictive and dynamic analogue wave electro sound with industrial leanings, made of mechanical metallic rhythms, suspenseful filthy and steaming builds of buzzing synth, over charismatic vocals, bursting fiercely with the pair’s synth prowess. Wicked stuff!

  • Athens, Greece ambient/dub techno project of Greek musician, sound artist, DJ, songwriter, producer and mastermind of industrial group Mechanimal, Giannis Papaioannou, aka ION “Midway” from the forthcoming 7th album “North Wind” via Same Difference Music

Complex and intriguing conceptual work from Mechanimal‘s mastermind Giannis Papaioannou, based on a series of field recordings originally captured in isolated and uncontaminated places, lashed by the iced wind of the Swedish sea, then carefully manipulated, with collaborations from two cellists and one guitarist, with imaginative craftsmanship. Alternating dense atmospheric walls of sounds to repetitive enveloping, epic dub droning minimalism interspersed by sparse subdued beats, long evocative cello inserts, and e-bow guitar textures takes us to remote arctic lands, where under their apparent immobility and stagnation, exude life, sound, and movement. The artist captured them and gave us back, condensed and enriched, into a fragile yet intense, perfectly balanced, immersive and vibrating sonic universe.

  • Argentina‘s industrial/dark techno solo project of Agustina Vizcarra, half of Buenos Aires‘ darkwave duo Balvanera, Contacto – “Teorias y Derrumbes” from V/A “Bloque Sur” split compilation via Bogotà’s Pildoras Tapes

Once again to prove the current vibrancy of the South American dark electronic scene, the first volume of a new compilation series focused on showcasing a ‘manifesto from the depths of the streets of South America’, with dark electronic sounds varying from dark techno, industrial, EBM, noise, electro, experimental. Four promising new Latin producers, included the already known to us Abstract Deity and the solo project of Agustina Vizcarra, half of darkwave duo Balvanera, the latter with a surprising, industrial-infused, dark techno number, comprised of menacing and ominous bassline, utterly mesmerizing rhythms, flashing and echoing synth loops, that gradually builds and carries tension inwardly, grabbing your mind into a trance state. A brilliant young DIY label, Bogotà’s Pildoras Tapes, that deserves a close attention.
