There’s something viciously nostalgic about french house producer Panteros666 latest LP Hyper Reality. This new album released by one of my favorite labels, Bromance Records, seamlessly blends 90’s hardcore rave samples and dark house vibes, unquestionably inducing you into a convulsion of no return. Hyper Reality converges into a musical concept like no other, there’s no doubt an alien abduction took place and the message is… DESTROY!
Panteros666 aka Victor Watel has spent years developing his cyber-pscychedelic aesthetic, cleverly molding genres from acid techno to future bass, and even some southern rap influences. Expect drone-type vocal samples, steady bass lines, apocalyptic synths and just an overall invitation to another dimension. Definitely not an album for the faint of heart. Check out the Hyper Reality mini mix and what Panteros666 crafted for his live shows… the future is here!

Matt Hill, better known as synth composer Umberto, gives us ‘Confrontations’– a lurid album jammed with an italo-disco/soundtrack-esque mood that will make you travel into a creepy foreign landscape once your eyelids shut.
Hill’s sounds in “Confrontations” are more defined from 70’s synth pop punctuations, relatively different than his three previous and more giallo directed productions. It’s impossible not to name drop horror genre maestro Dario Argento for all the imagery in the tracks, but mix it with some flickering Giorgio Morder disco and get caught in the hypnotic road trip Umberto wants you to ride.

After last year’s CHAIND Vol.1, witch house wizards White Ring , proved to become the ambassadors of the occult ghetto grave-rave tunes. This week they gave away their Waka Flocka ‘Murda‘ remix as a preview of their upcoming tape CHAIND Vol.2. Filled with machine guns, horror synths & stuttering demonic raps, White Ring smothered the life out of the original… reassuring this new mixtape will be more than satisfying for all you hooligan ravers out there.

Capturing sounds form the center of all things supernatural (Bermuda Triangle), Otto Von Shirach’s music is indescriptible. Squirting spastic influences of booty bass, death metal, breakcore, hip hop, goregrind and more… the Cuban/German antihero has managed to become one of the weirdest most revolutionary musicians in electronic music. His extreme enthusiasm and low brow sense of humor is by far one of my most loved things about his art. After 3 years away gathering sounds from the future, Otto is back with his new album ‘Supermeng’ on Monkey Town Records, where he illustrates menacing every day stories of the life of a descarado super human full of sucierias y cabronerias.

Formed in 2010, Canadian electronic band Purity Ring, is a genre-defiant duo that has already built a huge cult following with four singles and have yet to release their first album. Warping up influences from 90’s R&B, Trap, Rape-Gaze and lush dream pop… Corin Roddick’s stunning production and Megan James’ eerie vocals compose disturbing club lullabies that will leave you drifting in a daze.

Believe it or not, the already popular ‘Mercy‘ by Kanye West just got better. Remixed by the dark & twisted future-bass pioneers of the moment, RL Grime & Salva, this raved out Post-Apocalyptic Trap take on the single will without a doubt be a dance-floor killer this summer. Only available to stream at the moment. Enjoy!
Detroit-born producer & fashion photographer, Jimmy Edgar, has been making beats for over a decade now. Snatching all kinds of influences from his city’s eclectic music scene, without a doubt one powerful element stands out from the rest… SEX. This is a man who titled a track ‘I Want To Be Your STD‘, and an album ‘XXX‘. Creating mystery and dramatic/sexual tension are the main goals in his sound. He even became celibate (not even engaging with his own person) for a period of time to create sexual energy around him turning him into some kind of vampire. Continue Reading

The tape features their very first original track. Download free!

The DIY music culture is often traced back to the late 1970’s (some say earlier), and all the anarcho-punk bands emerging during that era often distributed limited amounts of cassette tapes; sadly becoming lost & overlooked over the years… until now. Continue Reading
