  • 80s seminal New York no-wave / post-punk band Liquid Liquid – “Zero Leg (A-Tweed x Oltrefuturo Edit)” (originally from 1981)

As many of you should know, Liquid Liquid was a pioneering New York‘s late 70s/early 80s so-called No-Wave group, who knew, like few others, how to combine Funk, New Wave, and Post-punk, abstracting and minimizing it in a visceral and atavistic alchemy. Rediscovered in the late 80s by House DJs and above all, at the end of the 90s, thanks to the Punk-Funk revival of bands such as The Rapture, Out Hud, or !!!, as well in addition to a well-deserved compilation co-released by James Lavelle’s Mo’Wax and Beastie Boys’ Grand Royal labels plus a couple of remixes. Italian-based rhythm company’s edit instills further trippy, ritualistic and tribal dimensions, to add stronger low-end groovy density and crisp, chugging and rolling rhythmic dynamics, strewing it with acid suggestions, absolutely appetizing for the most trance-inducing dancefloor.

  • Krasnodar, Russian EBM /acid /synthwave /breaks /techno producer Sanyanameste “Please Your Body” single on Khoinix

Russian producer combines buzzing undulating EBM bassline menace, tinny Industrial rhythms, hypnotic vocal loops, and dramatic synth washes to ignite ceremonial dancing catharsis.

  • Lyon based, French experimental /breakbeat /downtempo /trance /electronic producer Guillaume H. (Worst Records, Positive Education), aka A Strange Wedding “Inferno Seri (New Player In Town)” from upcoming V/A “No Digging After Midnight” compilation on Virtual Forest Records

Paris based Virtual Forest Records hosts a new 12-track compilation, “No Digging After Midnight”, to showcase the mesmerizing dark side of the French electronic scene, delving into a melting pot of influences from all different genres. Lyon‘s electronic visionary producer forays into deep, obscure, hypnotizing realms, where stifling humid atmospherics and ceaselessly menacing crisp echoing percussions, collide with rolling metallic low ends, strident swishing FX and droning oscillating frequencies, to trace eerie, disturbing yet intriguing subterranean routes bridging ancient esoterism and dystopian future.
