PICKS OF THE WEEK:
- “Space Is The Place – UB 22” Guest Mix: OCTAVE MARBOT
A German DJ from Kaiserslautern (hertzmusic) is your trip sitter for the electronic underground and has been diving through audio galaxies since 1999 to bring you the sound of the universe to the dance floor. Through mystical, Psychedelic sounds from all corners of the world (and beyond), paired with hypnotic basses, percussive grooves, spacey synth riffs and a pinch of Acid and Trance, he lets you rise into cosmic spheres and gently float down again.
- Montreal/Sidney ambient /dub /bass /deep /house collaborative project of producers, Priori & Cousin “2” from “Numina” EP 12″ [an Animalia and NAFF Recordings co-release]
Both contemplative, intricate and exotic, an intoxicating entangle of hypnotic icy chimes, crisp ritual insistent percussions, lively bass pulses, and inter-dimensional tones opens unseen visions where distant indecipherable chatter, arcade glitches, and harsh blowing vibrations place the listener in a heady sentience of a rousing trippy immersion.
- Tallinn, Estonian new beat /Italo disco /synth wave /electronic producer Sugar Rody – “La Glace” from the upcoming cassette LP “The Night” [Crave Tapes]
Hard to listen to a disappointing delivery from ’80s/’90s-fanatic Estonian producer with a compelling cold, dark yet at times euphoric 80s/90s blend of Italo /Industrial /Post-punk /Techno /Synth-Wave and New Beat. In “La Glace” relentless retro-charged thumping drum programming, and undulating rumbling basslines shoot up eerie electrified mists, encircled by swirling icy spacey strings to enshroud dreamy breathy distressed vocals in a surreal yet sinister hypnotic escapism.
- Lithuanian breakbeat /techno /electro producer and e506 label co-head, 5ZYL “The Box Is Gone” from the upcoming “Good Night” EP [e506]
Industrialized stark clanking hard-hitting beats, insistent thumping kicks and rambling and undulating squelchy bassline mechanical obsession will get you to jump up and down while stuck in Electro paranoia and Techno euphoria.
