The Raval Breakers strike back, blasting a rather fitting soundtrack to the dystopian times we are living in. This third volume gets together old and new friends of the M.U.S.A. family who show their personal takes on electro. The first track is a deep and explosive yet somehow contended cut; made in Rub by its legendary producer Univac, inspired by The Hague and remixed in Russia by the duo Fractions. La Maquina Corrupta sends a trancy, breaky and acidic cut from Berlin and Sistema, which inaugurates his new alias Brodmann 41 for some paranoid electroclash action. On the flip, Privacy does a great remix of Exzakt & BFX, mixing electro rhythms with a narcotic and nocturnal atmosphere that adds dubstep flavor to the formula. Finally, Barcelona’s own RNXRX closes this third EP with a broken and dirty track that sounds like a high-definition face punch.
RNXRX returns to VEYL for his debut album, ‘Impreciso’. No stranger to the label, the artist first made an appearance on ‘Previously Undisclosed Rituals’ and then again with ‘Sigil’, a collection of B-sides which act as the perfect prelude to this offering. Derived from an alchemy of inspiration, the album is the result of endless nights unearthing samples, vinyl oddities, effects databases from a bygone era and the artist’s own post-processed vocals – imprecise components which all combine perfectly to form this LP. Unconstrained by genre, ‘Impreciso’ journeys through strains of body music, psychedelic rock, soundtrack and more, delivering electronic experimentations which expose the artist’s darkest tendencies while revealing a long admiration of post-punk, hip hop and science fiction’s finest. Twelve tracks falling somewhere between homage and reinvention, ‘Impreciso’ operates with 80’s circuitry, throws back to 90’s beat nostalgia and drills into a cyber-verse for a familiar yet unexpected trip perfect for this moment.
We were very excited when, somewhere between July/August, we heard about Ombra festival and soon after we bought the tickets for the festival.
This was actually the first extended edition of the festival, since last year they just had a party in a club with 500 people, so we must consider ourselves really lucky for taking part in this.
Oráculo Records presents “Ombra Festival Unusual Sounds Gathering Volume 1”, a vinyl compilation created to celebrate the very upcoming second edition of Ombra Festival, that will take place next November 29th and 30th in different spots of Barcelona. Released in a one-off limited edition of 300 copies it includes unreleased material by some of the artists that joined Ombra Festival project and that majorly will be part of the scheduled Ombra Festival live shows. Featuring new music by The Present Moment, Celldöd, Psyche, RNXRX and We Are Not Brothers, “Ombra Festival Unusual Sounds Gathering Volume 1 Limited Edition EP” will be fully unveiled and shipped out next september 27th, coinciding with the press presentation of Ombra Festival 2019.
First record of the “Raval Rave Breakers” compilation. This VVAA contains 5 tracks of electro with artists like Boris Divider, the remix of the American Patricia to the Argentinean Nehuen, or the flagship artist of M.U.S.A, RNXRX delivers a psychedelic jam, an industrial acid track as catchy as it can be. Heroine From The North sounds a bit like when New Beat became faster and more agressive, being mixed with styles like EBM and trance.
‘Previously Undisclosed Rituals’ is the first various artists release on Veyl — An Experiment in Noise & Body Music. Years of Denial, Cassegrain’s Rhyw (under his Poison Green alias), Downards affiliate Autumns, RNXRX, Exhausted Modern and label mainstay Maenad Veyl contribute one ritual each for this grimoire that is guaranteed to keep everyone angry and confused throughout the rest of 2018.
