Weekly Electronic Music Tips #46

  • Aperitif de la Mort AM-028: ROBERT BERGMAN                                                                                                     

A long-standing stalwart of Amsterdam underground electronic scene, formerly part of the Rush Hour Records crew, L.I.E.S. and Dekmantel affiliated, BREW label head and hardware producer and DJ, Robert Bergman delivers a little more than an hour of his eclectic tripped-out jams made up of his signature eerie analogue techno and twisted house, with the addition of acid, electro and much more; trance-inducing and mind-bending will bring you in a whole new dimension to nourish and harmonize your mind and body.

  • Paris-based techno/EBM/electronic producer MIND | MATTER “Thelema” off upcoming V/A “Rite Of Initiation” EP on Forbidden Teachings

A favourite dispenser of thought-provoking EBM-embedded industrial-techno esoteric initiations, Parisian producer strikes paranoid fear into the rising anticipation of hard pounding beats over zipping metallic dimensions, cast in pinpoint fleshly bassline menace and clanking industrial doom, while barely audible vocals incite cyborg terror into the increasing momentum of trance-inducing, ruthless, and pumping dancefloor frenzy.

  • Netherlands Synthwave/Italo/Nu-Disco producer Erik Drost, aka Mouissie – “Callisto” off upcoming VA – “Mirror Fantasy” EP on Ritmo Fatale

Equal parts melancholic and ecstatic in a heady hypnotic mix of vintage disco rhythms, uplifting trance leanings sprinkled with smooth Balearic vibes, “Callisto” is stirred by twinkling, icy bright synth chords floating over throbbing bassline pulses propelling hustling beats into swirling nostalgic trancey swathes of emotional heartache and gloom.

  • Russian Dark Electro cyber-wizard Revizia “Doze” from new “Euphoria” EP on JST Records

Russian dark-electro cyberpunk delivers deep unmistakable and lucrative robotic dancefloor rhythms that rise and fall with alluring anticipation, while eerie sonar swathes rotate ‘seek and find’ missions, along with the growling buzzing bassline oscillating danger, cut in heavy mechanical repetition’s menacing sweeping wind of a cold dominion.
