from the 1917 Futurism silent movie ‘Thais’ by Anton Giulio Bragaglia e Riccardo Cassano

  • EGZOTIKKA – 86th SPECIAL 3 YEARS ANNIVERSARY META MOTO PODCAST                                                         

This week we celebrate one of the most consistent DIY labels around…London-based, Lithuania-bred Meta Moto label owner, producer and DJ Osvaldas Egzotikka, AKA @EGZOTIKKA presents true DIY music culture, the use of vintage synths and grinding dance beats infused with Post-punk and Cold Wave dynamics. This mix was recorded and aired on the 12th of October 2021 for an artist from Greece, RE/ACT, on his radio show called ‘Poisoned Wells’.

  • Rotterdam‘s Italo electro cosmic disco noir producer Silas Schletterer, aka Machinegewehr “Antimaterie” from upcoming V/A “OWL – Compilation VA2″ 12″ on Mélopée Records                                                               

Striking cosmic disco reverie from Rotterdam based producer/musician. Over a thriving carpet of tactile percussions, mysterious and adventurous moods layer bright droning and blooming liquid visions with hard throbbing bass jiggles, stacked and rolling dance beats, cool soothing synth glows, warm harsh blows and depth defying airless shouts to draw surreal, invigorating fantasies from retro-futuristic subconscious desires.

  • SIMBOLO – “Mind (Mick Wills Edit)” from Frigio Records‘ ECDISIS Series Vol. 4 (Mick Wills edits) 12″               

Stuttgart-based veteran DJ and producer Mick Wills returns with a couple of his masterfully edits taken from the back catalogue of late 80s, yet still active, Brazilian EBM/synth band Simbolo. The first unveiled cut is an emotive and propulsive whirling descent into the hidden and forsaken recessed of dark electronics made of edgy compulsive rhythmic hypnosis, ominously grainy undulating low ends, painfilled distorted laments, and ritualistic post-industrial recollections.

  • Chiapas, Mexico industrial /techno /EBM duo Red Deviil “Skull & Bones” from the upcoming cassette album “Inframundo” on Thessaloniki’s OSM tapes

Killer first preview from Chiapas based dark electronics production duo injects strong energized nocturnal moods pulsing, droning, and flashing in high voltage frequencies through heavy stomping backbeats emitting relentless steam-powered hypnosis into swirling magnetic geometric expansions rising and falling in waves of oppressive power to light apocalyptic dancefloor rhythms with blazing flames from “Inframundo.”
