Trenton Chase :: Deadlock (June)

The eight tracker shows a new breadth to Kokkinakos’ sound, black tracks that will damage a floor alongside more playful numbers. There’s a power and strength to the music, but there is also a sense of distress and disorder. Some artists are prolific, others less so. But as we all know, quantity does not mean […]

Equimanthorn :: Exalted Are The Seven Throne Bearers of Ninnkigal (Shaytan)

Equimanthorn is one pionnering project in the subterranean world of tribal / ritualistic dark ambient music, driven by occult strengths and by an interest for ancient esoteric believes.

Doing the rounds with 3.14 :: Pi Electronics (Interview and Mix)

Aegean Electronics is growing, soaking up the talent and enthusiasm centred around Athens. Labels such as Echovolt, Vanila and Lower Parts, artists like June, Morah and Damcase, as well as platforms like Phormix, are carving out their own territory in the competitive arena that is the hearts and minds of the faithful. Pi Electronics is […]

Glanko :: Osmosi (Halbsicht)

Osmosi redefines the architectural balance between dark electronic sojourns and flowing modular strains. Glenko (aka Giuseppe Fallacara) returns with another full-force album with Halbsicht. Spinning the gauntlet of electronic music both harsh and delicate, Osmosi traverses a spectrum of moods. From glitch fragments to bass throttling, no stone is left unturned. “0005” unfolds modular industrial minimalism […]

Richard H. Kirk :: Dasein (Intone)

Richard H. Kirk, the sole member of Cabaret Voltaire, is back after a long six year hiatus with Dasein. It spares no one, takes no prisoners and does so shamelessly. And thank god for that. Richard H. Kirk, the sole member of Cabaret Voltaire, is back after a long six year hiatus with Dasein. It […]

3View :: Atlea, Scarford & Identity Theft (Katabatik)

Katabatik’s at it with some new industrial styled releases that should find a place on the dance floor as well as your favorite BDSM/dayglo green lit club. Atlea’s I is a mixture of industrial, synth pop and minimal techno. “At War” sounds a bit like vintage Proem with some vocoder thrown in plus a bit […]

UnknownmiX :: Chew Some More (Lux Rec.)

Lux Rec has never adhered to one style. Techno, house, soundtracks and of course gnarled EBM under the MRT wing. Once again the pick, trowel and brush are being employed, this time for 80s avant garde group UnknownmiX. Lux Rec has never adhered to one style. Techno, house, soundtracks and of course gnarled EBM under […]

Alg0rh1tm :: Sacrificed For The Whole EP (Onset Audio)

Shuffling through broken beats, muddy bass, and extruded rhythms, here we see mechanized industrial sounds scorched to no end. Alg0rh1tm (aka Denis Glavčić) molds many familiar dark shapes on the Sacrificed For The Whole extended player with Onset Audio. Shuffling through broken beats, muddy bass, and extruded rhythms, here we see mechanized industrial sounds scorched […]

V/A :: When The Rich Wage War, It’s The Poor Who Die (Poverty Is Violence)

A heady range of sounds are explored on a compilation that grits teeth, journeys into the machine, seeks out the shadows and will go in directions few would have expected (myself included.) It’s interesting to see two separate labels follow a particular path. You’d be forgiven for thinking Charlton and Nick Dunton’s Poverty Is Violence […]

2methyl :: Etched (Agnost1k)

A definitive leftfield industrial avalanche, Etched is a textural bass and beat smorgasbord that pushes sounds of chaos to the edge. Reminiscent of early Amon Tobin (ref. Supermodified on Ninja Tune, 2000—especially “Rhino Jockey”) minus the jazzy elements, here we see the talented French producer (Nicolas Druoton aka 2methyl) reveal Etched following his 2015 release […]

C_C :: Impendulo (Da Heard It!)

Nine tracks that ravage, ricochet, and syncopate their way through, Impendulo delivers high-level, machine-driven tectonic sound, and subtle melodic twists. Impendulo follows up from 2012’s Retro Action (Bedroom Research) which was described as “a collision between industrial, noise, dub and electro migrating around definitive analog rhythms.” This new title has a resemblance to Jack Dangers’ (of Meat […]

Dez Williams :: Forlorn Figures in Godforsaken Places (Mechatronica)

Williams’ latest 12” is an excellent example of why he is held in such high regard. Three cuts of no-nonsense, straight up, sheer machine music, percussion punched through metal with slicing synthwork. Berlin electro collective Mechatronica made their position known from the get go. A strong compilation founded the imprint with a second installment of […]

In Rotation :: Multi-view (June 2017)

In rotation for the past few weeks, this multi-view reveals the latest sonic landscape from five talented musicians. Plenty of brittle, glitch, abstract, noisy, mechanical and bass-infused sounds with releases by Fizzarum, LODSB, Mikroben Krieg, Room Of Wires, and Xzicd. Fizzarum :: Frisson (Ant-Zen) It’s hard to believe, but Dmitry Dubov and Albert Rasyulis’s Fizzarum project […]

Femur :: Electronic down to its bones

Based on the strength of these first two 12”s (by Frak and Celldöd), a new, interesting, and forward looking label has just been established here in Spain and one, which I have no doubt, will be a success. Femur. After five years of running a club night, after a compilation on Clasicos Del Ruidos, after enough […]

/DL/MS/ :: Rogue Intent EP (TRUST)

Busted up electro-industrial slabs crash against rugged rhythms, low-end streams and intense sound fields. Busted up electro-industrial slabs crash against rugged rhythms, low-end streams and intense sound fields. /DL/MS/ are Lok44 and Dibek collaborating on Rogue Intent, an intense debut 4-track (vinyl) extended player for Vienna’s long-running TRUST imprint. “Indisciplineado” runs through blackened corridors of […]

Dødsmaskin :: Fullstendig Brent (Malignant)

Fullstending Brent is a very sinister, scary and haunting cinematic black and doom ambient release that will easily seduce most demanding fans of the genre. To be placed next to infernal and massive power electronic releases by Megaptera or Brither Death Now. Hailing from Norway this project is totally new for me. Thematically the album […]

Dreissk :: To Nowhere (n5MD)

A fine collection of sonic meditations and futuristic elegies in minor key, produced by massive synthesized orchestrations, dissonant, tripped-out and melodious post-rock grooves. Dreissk (aka Kevin Patzelt) is a consistent project signed on the independent n5MD imprint (devoted to a great variety of electronic music, from IDM to experimental, minimal and organic ambient music, active since 2002). […]

Anemone Tube :: In the Vortex of Dionysian Reality (Blossoming Fern)

Cohesive, intriguing, inspiring and worth to be listened for fans of death industrialism, as well as subterranean dark ambient. Blossoming Fern are new comers in the publishing world of dark ambient, noise and industrial music. For their promising beginning they’ve published the new release of German’s power electronic / industrial ambient act Anemone Tube, strictly […]

Eff Dst :: Blackout (Hymen)

Dense, fluid, and evolved, piano keys embark on soundtrack-driven environments as a propulsive bass assault shimmies its way throughout. Somewhere in the mist between foggy, dark industrial-tinged tones and lighter dub-ambient washes, Eff Dst (aka Belarus-based Sound Engineer, Dmitry Stepnov) delivers a contagious electronic album for Hymen titled Blackout. Dense, fluid, and evolved, piano keys embark […]

Ultradyne :: Antarctica (re-issue) (Exterminador)

The gristle and grunt of the machine is a feature of this first and only album. Gears blur, snares grate into melodies as percussion pierces all. Within every genre there are the darker purveyors. The blackened stalwarts of techno, the seedy perverts of house; electro is no exception. Coming from the grime and grit, from […]

Nonima :: Recur (Section 27)

Recur is choke-full of mechanically-infused electronic mayhem that is ever so lightly shielded by its tranquilized downtrodden shimmer. Section 27 founder Nonima (aka Tam Ferrans) reveals Recur, a diverse and abstract electronic abyss that segues into and out of consciousness. Take the opening “Recursor” as a starting point—elongated sounds from another galaxy expand and contract […]

A Bleak Reality :: Inevitable Disaster / Steinzeit :: Wahrheit (MRT)

If we are now living in the age of anger this is surely the soundtrack of discontent. MRT. A Division of Lux Rec. There seems to be little division between these two sides of the Swiss imprint. The black bile from which MRT was born has infected the entire label. Downtrodden. Dank. Dark. What has […]

TAFKAMP / Thanos Hana :: TH06 (Tar Hallow)

The dutch imprint is shouting its mantra, ushering in another twelve months with a 12” of abused and brutalized industrial terror. If this is the age of anger, surely this is its soundtrack. There’s a nasty side running through techno. In all fairness there always has been but of late some have taken that misanthropic […]

Goodbye, but not farewell :: Femur Mix

I was lucky enough to get behind the turntables there in November of 2015, a mangled and mashed warm up mix before Alessandro Parisi and Juanpablo rounded off a cracking Frigio Showcase. Never got round to doing a track list and hence the wait, only took 18 months! Friday night. Rain. Hail. Oppressive heat. Round […]

Tapirus/D-56m :: The Art of Seeing (Poverty Is Violence)

The Art of Seeing shows a different side of Poverty is Violence. For those seeking bare bones rawness don’t worry, there’s a decent helping of that on here. There’s also more. Sinister sleekness, sly sneers masquerading as smoothness, D-56m subverts as Tapirus doles out damage. It’s interesting how quickly you develop an idea of a […]

V/A :: Fashion Victims (Fenix Fire)

New Beat has taken a back seat and despite notable exceptions this very Belgian sound has remained on the margins. And perhaps that’s where it belongs, in the late night club where echoing acid is spliced by beats and sweat, on the purity of sticky floors. The Fashion Victims of Fenix Fire are ready to […]

Sebastian Reuschel :: The World is Shit (ZCKR)

Across two tracks, some twenty five minutes of music, field recordings, live music and machine groans are brought together. I’d the recent joy of moving flat. I know moving is a pain in the arse for anybody, but for the record collector it’s an especially harrowing experience. Boxing up two thousand plus records is no […]

Theory :: Red Book EP (Mindtrick)

Theory (aka Russian native Antuan Graftio), elicits a turbulent, muddy and distopian musical trove within each piece. Theory delivers for Mindtrick, what Tangent did in for the imprint a few years ago on 1mk2. The difference, however, is that Theory manages to unleash a more robust industrial influence, whereas Tangent was described as being “inspired […]
