“the final sickness”, originally released in 1993, is another the mover masterpiece and its ten tracks transmit a crunchy thick and cold tone. edging to a rather industrial side of the techno spectrum, the pcp-spirit is carried throughout the release. every piece plunges to the bottom of darkest depths without remorse, leaving no space for the mild-mannered music lover. an eerie blend of hefty, yet intellectual 909 beats and chewy analog synths unite this collection of gems. haunting sequences, spooky effects and tough drums create an extraordinary venture for your deepest senses! if you’ve been into productions by the mover and planet core productions, you may just experience the pinnacle of his intensity with the final sickness. it can’t get more pcp than that!
formerly releasing exclusively for pact infernal s label altar, one half of pact infernal steps forward as nastika with the black sun ep. nastika takes the fright to the floor in a more direct fashion than his work with pact. sinuous, eastern tinged waves wash over percussive stomps on yajna and sati , while the matching black sun tunes mark out a unique stylistic territory somewhere between techno and mysticism. with black sun, nastika further refines his crucial musical accompaniment to the indelible works of pact infernal.
four modern, textural, slow-burning instrumental hip hop soundscapes set a distinct mood on this new ep by the venerable chris deluca. heavy-hitting basslines and slightly ominous hat patterns dominate, leaving these cuts verging on the territory of dark, minimal electro destruction... with a subtle dose of that funky boom bap. perfectly applicable to both basement dancefloor experiments and gangster dealings alike. one half of berlin s funkstörung, alongside partner michael fakesch, de luca is more than well-versed in the genre, having done a few remixes for high-profile hip hop and experimental acts such as wu tang clan and bjork. they ve released an uncountable amount of records on labels !k7, compost records, music aus strom and acid planet, to name but a few. this is his first release for detroit underground. includes two fire remixes, one by fellow du resident producer valance drakes, and the second by none other than chris deluca s son, lenny deluca.
when the fight-or-flight response edges in—adrenaline coursing and perception wired—our behaviour is especially spiked by an emotional intensity. and with that peak comes a trough. it’s a chemical freefall, just like a crush.
presented by posh isolation, “crush” marks the beginning of the end for varg’s turbulent nordic flora series. getting us lost in an exhilarating maze of fainting beauty and breaks, the fifth piece of the series invites us to relish the harmony just as much as the dissonance.
following on from the previous iterations of the series, particularly the widely acclaimed “nordic flora series pt.3: gore-tex city”, the cast of collaborators remain familiar. some faces are more prominent on this occasion, while others were folded into the series for the first time at last year’s berlin atonal festival where varg’s nordic flora program was unveiled.

a benchmark project that has been in fruition over the past year, one against time is the magnum opus of john dimas career. it is a pivotal milestone that embodies his depth of knowledge and his personal fascination with the mysteries of life and the universe. spread across 14 tracks, one against time sees dimas really broaden his artistic capabilities, drawing from a melting pot of influences and woven together by his desire to channel a feeling of intrigue and curiosity taking a journey outward into the deepest recesses of outer space while simultaneously traveling inward to that same area of deep space inside his own soul...
neuauflage von 1977: trip in unbekannte soundsphären, der mensch und maschine verschmilzt.
wir brauchen keine neuen techniken. jeder hat eine technik. was wir brauchen, sind neue sounds. und es ist nicht einfach, neue sounds zu finden.- aber genau dieser aufgabe verschrieb sich richard pinhas. heute kennt man den franzosen nicht nur in seinem heimatland als etablierten space-rock-elektronik-musiker. doch 1977 war -rhizosphere- sein erstes soloalbum. zuvor hatte er schon fünf alben mit seinem wegweisenden bandprojekt heldon veröffentlicht. befreit von jeglicher gruppendynamik schickte er sich auf -rhizosphere- mit hilfe seines kurz zuvor erworbenen moog-modular-systems dazu an, in neue klangwelten vorzustoßen. auf vier der fünf tracks sind der 25-jährige pinhas und sein synthesizer ganz allein zu hören. wir erleben dabei eine verschmelzung von mensch und maschine, die sich immer mehr zu einer ausgedehnten, abenteuerlichen reise in unbekannte gefilde entwickelt. pinhas’ vereinfachter ansatz brachte eine ganze galaxie an sounds und ideen hervor. jeder track beherbergt ein eigenes akustisches und emotionales mini-universum. die bandbreite der stimmungen ist kaum zu fassen. außer pinhas war nur noch der schlagzeuger françois auger beteiligt. er begleitet pinhas auf dem 18-minütigen titeltrack, der sich anfühlt wie ein raketenflug zum mond.

in the dust of idols is an album exploring mortality, existentialism & the dread one can feel in the face of an apparently meaningless world. the journey you embark on when trying to create meaning where there is perhaps none. these initial senses of dread can be brought about by the insignificance you feel in the face of greatness, where others have seemingly found meaning and purpose in the face of your own wavering path.
