Dark Vektor – Siegas Las Cadenas EP [NDMEK006]

DARK VEKTOR - Siegas Las Cadenas

Dark Vektor is the new signing for the Madrid label Industrias Mekanikas. “Siegas Las Cadenas”, is the name with which the Catalan artist, presents this new work, a title that undoubtedly carries a very direct message about the times of repression and bias of freedoms that we came today. This new work presents 6 tracks, three original tracks of Dark Vektor, along with three remixes, of the hand of some of giants of the international electro scene. Assembler Code, Cosmic Force and Cestrian, are in charge of finishing off this incredible reference, full of pure power in each beat, demolishing bass, and hypnotic sequences and above all a message of vindication that is the common thread of the whole EP.

Dark Vektor – Back [SD002]

DARK VEKTOR/DJ OVERDOSE/AGNES PE - Back

Second release of Sigourney Discs, a 12” vinyl focused on electro music. Dark Vektor, a veteran of Terrassa’s scene, presents Bac, a work of the raw electro that defines him: robotic voices, evolving basslines and infectious melodies. Side B opens with a remix by Agnès Pe reinventing BACK, and electro, from her own evasive genre, deconstructing the original theme into a collage of vocals and unpredictable rhythms with raving shades. The Dutch producer DJ Overdose signs the last BACK remix. As usual, a personal view on electro, revolving the original theme by sampling it with forcefulness. A blunt rhythm, heavy bassline and again, vicious melodies visiting the origins of the genre.

VA – Raval Rave Breakers Part 2 [MUSA003]

The second Raval Rave Breakers instalment continues with another strong five tracker. A Swiss knife where different sides of electro manage to coexist in blissful harmony. Some of them do so in a clean and classic way, like Dark Vektor’s “Time Space Rhythm & Bass”. A small 80s odyssey that fondly reminds of a certain quartet of well-known robots. Some others take a a more raw and contemporary approach, like Spoiled Drama (Nous, Fleisch), who plays the aches-and-pains card in a glorious way: “Drama’s Welcome To The Synthesized Pain Society” goes straight to your cortex and it won’t be easy to forget. Univac (Bunker, Moustache) sits in a more middle ground, bringing us “Collider”: a powerful electro-techno track that will uplift any possible dancefloor. Larry McCormick, head honcho of the renowned label Monoton, signs as his usual alias Exzakt, but now gets accompanied by the mysterious BFX. Their track “Close” is a as perfect as it could be: a pure, raw, super intense breaker electro rhythm, a ratchety lead, a couple arps, a distorted vocal and a tremendous sub that, even at low volumes, it might be heard even from the Mariana’s Trench. Closing the EP, Eel travels back to the more lo-fi side of the genre with “Sich Kreuzende Linien”, an eerie and hypnotic track which surrenders to an absolute jackhammer of a rhythm section.

VA – Episode 1 – Messier 42 [IT001]

Tracks by Humandroid, Dark Vektor, Antoni Maiovvi & Synthesized. ‘In the interstellar medium are regions known as nebulae, they formed by gas and heavy chemical elements in the form of cosmic dust. Have a significant cosmological importance since many of these regions are where stars are born by phenomena of condensation and aggregation of matter. One of the most beautiful is M42 or Messier 42, the Orion Nebula…’
