Holland’s house & techno kingpin De Sluwe Vos kept his best work until today to be released on his Patron imprint. A four tracker which combines low tempo sharp synths as well as dancefloor shakers with rolling snares and undeniable claps for a dark and sweaty night club setting. As he is equipped with a deeply rooted understanding of club music, De Sluwe Vos raised the bar with this release for the future releases on the Patron Records imprint.
Berlin based Mannequin Records pushes out some proper Industrial/EBM bangers. Raised in Pescara on the Adriatic Coast and ow based in Frankfurt am Main Antonio Barbetta is debuting on Death of the Machines as Raw Ambassador. The heavy four track ep is created to burn every dancefloor with full Industrial vibes and a lot of EBM influences, giving us a small insight into his violent and rough sound.
Next up on Bucharest’s Raw Tools label is Börft co-founder, Johan Sturesson, also known to be part of the Swedish electronic trio, Frak. Always under the radar, he has been operating raw electronics since the late 80’s, developing quite a distinctive sound. As Kord, he has released on several Swedish labels, including his own imprint. The four-track EP consists in music from the private vaults of the producer, that has been kept secret for almost 20 years. Rough and gritty, his analogue approach and stripped down sound define the record. Starting with the rave sounding “Uncle Owl” and then moving to a more darkly atmospheric title track, Kord shows his muscles on the flipside with some more techno infused and bass driven dancefloor cuts.
