Weekly Electronic Music Tips – NOVEMBER #45-23


  • GOWAX “Dark Dance vol. 9”

Antwerp, Belgium-based experienced DJ/Producer Gowax with a gripping and immersive set mixing some of his recent favorite darkisch spheric hypno tracks. Still very much Dark Disco, New Wave, Techno, and EBM infused, but slightly uptempo…just trust Patrick and ‘Wave Inbetween’.

  • UK bass /garage /house /techno producer Kindimmer “Futurama” from “Fathers Without Fathers” EP [Omena]

Amid the Bass and Garage inflected opening and the IDM-tinged minimalistic clinking finale, is the lush cinematic warm atmospherics of “Futurama” that shines with a slow build of wandering rich layers of humming and enveloping synth sweeps, blended with subtly tinny oscillations, steady smooth pattering kick drums, and swelling humming basslines, wavering with organic emotional depth into immersive ethereal outer spaces, proof to an imaginative eclectic artist to follow steadily.

  • Parisian EBM /rave /industrial /techno DJ-producer Pierre Berge-Cia – “Entropist” off “Exit Wound” EP [Vast Perception]

I’m not as into straight techno stuff as I was in the early 00s ’cause I’m not clubbing anymore due to ‘age limits’, but the dizzying, shadowy and turbulent Industrial-charged melodic techno from the Parisian producer, fueled with relentless hard-hitting drums, trippy ravey synths and buzzing cavernous basslines, and it’s not the first time, always worth my listening time and imaginary headspace of dancefloor devastation. The same I could say for the even more incendiary DLV firecracker below.

  • Montreal-based Mexican ambient /experimental /techno /Latin /dembow /percussive /percussive sound designer and composer Ultima Esuna “Frondoso” title track of the upcoming “Frondoso” EP [5U LTD]

Up-and-coming Mexican electronic artist, relocated to Montreal, nimbly blends Techno, House and Dembow elements with a Latin flair, in a teeming, lush and fanciful tropical array of seemingly disjointed yet subtly cohesive clutter replete with incessant crispy percussive patterns, that roll and bounce through ritual hypnotic kick drums, frenetic brittle chimes, hollow drops, and lingering angsty obsessive tones, fusing mesmerizing whispers with crackling magnetic vivid intensity.
