If you ask me, DT Camp is by far the best electronic music festival in Europe. The remote location is very beautiful, on the banks of an emerald-green lake, surrounded by the wild forests of Lithuania. The crowd is equally mixed with local and people coming from all corners of Europe, all in search for the same thing. A serious rave! The vibe there is unbelievable. Everybody is on the same page, thee is a great sense of unity and freedom. And on top of this, if the weather is nice you can bathe into the warm waters of the lake.
Rotterdam is miserably cold and rainy. Plagued by gentrification and technological unemployment, the harbor city is slowly turning into a desolate, mechanized metropolis. Secretly tucked away on the outskirts, if you know where to look, there are a few remaining military bunkers. This is where the city’s youth go sporadically to relieve their anger and grief. During these nights, they tirelessly rage to the dystopian sound of Gamma Intel’s slow-burning electro and hypno-acid, before returning to the struggles of their daily lives.
Brokntoys opens its Monochrome series with a debut EP from Gamma Intel. Across 4 tracks, the Dutch producer presents a workout in jagged body music. Power Plant Tales sets the scene with suspenseful driving rhythms and Theorem X rolls on through sweat-dripping grooves. On the B-side, Post Factum navigates through weird contortions while Self-Denial takes no prisoners as the fierce and menacing finale.
