‘panspermia‘. aptly named after the theory of the ‚all-seed‘ and its universal distribution of life through collision and contamination. is a highly skilled musical journey through the radiant realms of old school techno and into black holes of classic detroit-inspired darkness. with his carefully crafted debut ep. agonis starts out on his first and very personal mission into outerspace. towards the unknown aquazones and far-out planetery fringes of the house und techno universe.
the every day fight deep in the inner side of danjel esperanza is such a big antagonism. but its not only in himself. its his life. destiny and his music which he really lives out on his musically diary. and now with his first album ever!
no better place can it be than his label backdoor beauty to describe all the opposed feelings. the album contains nine very deep and soulful songs. deep bubbling pumpin basslines combined with spiritual singing vocals. instruments like violins. flutes. guitars and many more! all recorded together with sounds from outside which gives the unique athmospheric dubby touch and far horizons and it feels at the end like a very hypnotic trip.
inspired and influenced from so many music styles he found his own way in electronical acoustic sounding music to describe the antagonism in danjel esperanzas life and the world...which is like one happy eye and one sad eye....

following the peace obscured ep by bokeh. his joint venture with anthone. katsunori sawa sets yet another mark on the weevil neighbourhood with his first full-length solo artist album on the label. titled secret of silence the eight tracks-spanning work of kyoto based sawa drills through japan techno. industrial breaks and noise while flirting with breakcore and a more aggressive take on dub.

while focusing on his side projects admx-71 and traversable wormhole the past two years. the pioneering forefather of the industrial techno groove adam x returns on sonic groove records with an extended player entitled “bedeviled”. adam mixes a recipe of rhythmic noise industrial. classic rave and post contemporary techno rolled across three songs. creating the perfect mix of sound and rhythm aimed to torment dancefloors into submission during the peak hours of the night.
scuba death is ricardo donosos alter ego. with more of a focus on analog sound. percussion. sampling. and location recordings. there is an organic undercurrent on scuba death recordings that isnt as prevalent in his solo work.
