New electro project on Zusammen. After the last 3 outings have been a sidestep towards a more experimental and spoken affair, it’s back to dark electro again on what could be one of the best Zusammen releases so far.
In music, phrygian mode is dissonant, dark, depressive and gloomy. Its use was even forbidden in classical Greece for centuries because it was considered pagan. The sound of phrygian mode is rather exotic… This track was composed 30 years ago and now for the first time on vinyl. Old Belgian electronic band Twilight Ritual has authorized Frigio to re-edit an amazing song from their early 80,s album Rituals. To accompany the original version, we have an awesome remix by Sneaker (Uncanny Valley) who created a club oriented version of it.
Veteran of the fist-pumping kind of electro inhabited by Miss Kittin and I-F, it’s not so often you see a new release from The Hacker these days. Still, he’s made it back to deliver three Italo-flavoured nuggets on Tigersushi in the style of romantic 80s arpeggios and fat synths he made his name on. “Through The Ether” is unashamedly cosmic in its tone, boasting elegiac reams of melody over those steadily pulsing bass notes. A rasping snare gives “Mind Games” a marginally tougher edge, but really this is sweet songwriting for swooning swingers on the dancefloor.
New release by Gavin Russom on Ntrop Recordings. Gavin breathes life into his new Knight Skyy moniker with a magnificent sci-fi acid marathon that will have all the analog gear junkies grinding their teeth in ecstasy.
