omar di bongo ist ein audio-visuelles projekt, das video-feedback von hugo saugier mit zwei figuren der französischen underground-techno-szene verschmilzt: somaticae (in paradisum, tanzprocesz ...) bekannt für seinen dark cutting-techno, und c_c (small but hard, kvitnu ...) meister der feedbacks, und wilde analoge industrielle beats. ihre musik verbindet industrielle musik mit tribalen polyrhythmen und lässt uns in eine bestimmte art von psychedelia eintauchen, halluziniert oder demenziert. ihre produktionen bringen techno zu seinem kern zurück, der trance-dimension, die in vielen modernen musiken dieses genres oft vergessen wird.
superb unreleased 80s ambient cassettes remastered ! robert scott pearsons musiccan be seen as surrealist, impressionist, post industrial, mystical or avant-garde, but it goes beyond categories. his work embraces software, philosophy, poetry, visual arts, and generative algorithmic creation in general. at an early age, he began to experiment in this field, and released his first music privately on cassette, being part of the 80s underground industrial scene in seattle. post-industrial, futuristic, but not really nihilistic, his beautiful music melts expressive synth leads with arpeggios soundscapes, and drum machines flashes and lights, to take us in another reality.
we re very proud to announce the release of a new series of records, between modern retro-futuristic library music and idm, inaugurated by the fabulous bill vortex! also known as poborsk for about 20 years, patrice curtillat is one of the spearheads of the idm in france. he has been released on prestigious labels such as icasea (team doyobi), central processing unit, or flogsta danshall, and he is the cofounder of the skweee label mazout, so autechre were right by choosing him as the first part in lyon during their last french tour. recognized by his peers from scandinavia to england, he is a discreet but brilliant producer of the stamp of labels like skam or warp, with in addition a typical marseilles balearic touch. in this new project he reconnects with his old loves : funk, breakdance, house oldschool ... always keeping his inimitable style made of granular grooves, and pentatonic melodies in a sunny atmosphere. his -feelgood music- is the ideal soundtrack for a science fiction series, a 4g tv report, or a motorcycle race.
