Innsyter – Magnetic Healing [CYN002]

Rough and ready machine tracks from Brazilian producer Innsyter (LA Club Resource). CYN002 picks up where Coletivo Vandalismo left off, channeling that same wild, DIY bedroom studio spirit across nine individual recordings. Opening with sprawling synth motifs fighting against a steady rhythm track, ‘Desintegrado’ sounds like an industrial dub punk trying to channel early Cluster or Moebius and strangely succeeding. The rest of the LP treats us to vaguely Drexciyan, subaquatic electro (‘Bries’) and twisted lo-fi minimalism with bonus eerie monologue samples (‘Superficial Love’). The one recurring theme on Magnetic Healing is Innsyter’s clear love for mournful, post-punk inspired melodies. It comes across loud and clear on almost every track yet never sounds tired. Things eventually draw to a close with the hopelessly romantic new wave instrumental ‘Forest Shaman’ – a short ballad for all those weary-eyed party-goers who stuck around til the sun came up.

Seixlack – Bed Bug Bites EP [XK004]

Hot off the back of his debut LP for Delroy Edwards’ LA Club Resource as alter-ego Innyster, Seixlack serves up an EP of trademark, super raw, machine funk. Spanning the full gambit of dredged up acid, synth stacked daydreams and straight up 4×4, the breadth of this EP showcases a real talent.

Seixlack – Vulto [777006]

Grainy and overdriven machine house from Brazil on Berlin label 777 which sounds like it’s been recorded from tape. This stuff is properly dirty in a seriously lo-fi way… First track “Charlie” is dirty techno punk using a rusty pawn shop drum machine pattern and backed by growling black metal guitar feedback; pretty serious! Next up “Mini Folia” clangs and clatters about the shop with a skipping and antagonising melody plus more overdriven guitar grunt in the background. On the flip “Metados” is more uplifting and dare we say… soulful? This melancholic deep house number still packs some punch with its overdriven kick and bumping bassline though, don’t worry. Finally “Damas” is one more underground basement jam; a driving vintage groove with equals parts emotion and machine hiss and squeal!
