Weekly Electronic Music Tips #43

  • Italian dark synth electronic Dj, Producer, Remixer and head of Mannequin Records, Alessandro Adriani – ”All Your Future In The Darkness” off the V/A compilation “Despertar X Chile” in aid to Chile rebellion.

Crucial 52-track compilation in aid to the People of Chile‘s resistance against the longstanding neo-liberalism’s ruthless oppression that ceaselessly plague the South American Country since the 70s C.I.A. backed Pinochet regime. The dark, overpowering, psychedelic and gloomy electronic dirge embodies all the despair, anguish, suffering and terror for the umpteenth black page in the course of mankind.

  • Bristol, UK experimental/ambient/post-punk/cinematic/breakbeats/trip-hop/electronic new project from Jason Luxton (aka Overlook), featuring close friends Dean Warburton, Joe Theobald & the vocal talents of Manuela Marchis, LUCID DREAMS “Hallucinogenics” from s/t cassette album on The Stone Tapes UK

New project from The Stone Tapes label co-owner Jason Luxton (aka Overlook) and close friends is an emotionally-charged and poignant cinematic trip through ashen and dense soundscapes built with atmospheric synth pads, lumbering bass lines, hypnotic broken beats, fuzzed-out trip-hop rhythms, shades of post-punk, humming drones that reappear and disappear worming its way into the eerie darkness and misty realms of the senses.

  • Melbourne, Australia dark techno/jungle/UK garage producer Alex Campbell (one half of Perth’s Senate), CONSULATE “Bloodline” from “Bitterfeld#05″ 12” on Bitterfeld

I knew the producer duet from Perth, Senate through a track on a compilation from a couple of years ago and a fantastic 5-track EP last August on Art-E-Fax, a gritty, hypnotic, bouncing and rousing techno sound stuffed with breaks and hardcore. Now Brisbane-based member Alex Campbell under the Consulate moniker is going to relese a 5-track EP via German label Bitterfeld, adding further industrial and UK garage elements to the usual sonic palette. “Bloodline” opens in a tearing, clanging, hard-hitting industrial techno mode, with hints of breaks simmering underneath, shifting along, cutting through a thick haze of darkness into a hypnotizing, punchy and stepping drum & bass affair that keeps live and kicking throughout. Sick stuff!
