Established during the UK’s lockdown, E.L.I. has been a means of escaping the monotony of a bleak situation. This new project of Mike Smith aka Crossover Network has been created for compositions only made with TR-707, TT-303, MS20, DX21 and a discordant voice. The result is a six-tracks EP between EBM, acid and dark electro : six crepuscular bangers for the body and the mind.
Romanian producer and DJ Miruna Boruzescu aka Borusiade knows how to create ethereal tracks, somewhere between post-wave, techno and industrial vibes. “Purge”, the new EP for Tripalium Corp, is about heart-break in forced isolation, when the only way to stay sane is purging through music and lyrics. From the 80s synth of “Let Go” to the experimental ten-minutes-trip “Haunted Evolution”, these five tracks are talking about of one’s coping systems in extreme emotional situations, hope and power to move on and last but not least, learned lessons and empowerment.
Acid Avengers return. On the A-side, Portuguese producer Lake Haze delivers three techno cuts for the floor, all composed with a brutal acid line. On the B-side, Swedish producer Celldöd returns with three electro and techno tunes for those who like the cold groove of northern Europe. Sometimes ravey, sometimes martial, sometimes funky, here is a new split EP with six raw bangers.
For that 15th Acid Avengers split EP, Tripalium Corp welcomes two providers of acid music who know each other very well, as they’re also associated in the duo Nite Vision. On the A-Side, English producer Perseus Traxx, known for his raw house & electro bombs on Bunker, Solar One, I Love Acid or his own imprint Future Flash. On the B-Side, Barcelona-based producer Mantra, also know under his aliases Myriadd or Acid Phreex, and responsible of several ravey bangers on Pinkman, Creme Organization, Bunker and Polybius Trax.
Both noted for their powerful and inventive electro tunes, L.F.T. and Raymond D. Barre are two of the most interesting producers of the moment. On that new split EP, the punk sensitivity from Hamburg meets the braindance influence of the parisian : here are five fucked-up acid bombs for all the 303 trainspotters.
On this new split EP, we welcome two knights of the European electro scene. On the A side, the Irish man DeFeKT, who already released several bombs on Earwiggle, Solar One Music or Newflesh. On the B side, the french killer Maelstrom, who shows us his darkest face here, after some strong releases on RAAR, Zone or Cititrax. One EP, two buddies, four heavy tracks for the bangers.
