“LES FLEURS DU MAL COLLAGE” BY ANCIENT METHODS

Like all great poets he was an acute observer and an ingenious translator of feelings. His words paint precise and poignant pictures of the shapeless and inenarrable, like a mood or a sentiment. Sometimes only music can have the same effect on me. Discover more here.

"TWO BLOOD TRAILS, TWO RIFFLES" BY LIEU NOIR


"2 Blood Trails, 2 Riffles" is a podcast through which Lieu Noir introduces a selection of tracks moving us into a post-apocalyptic landscape similar to Richard Stanley's movie Hardware. Lieu Noir uses this opportunity to give us exclusively "Absent Gods & Dead Immortals", the eponymous track from his EP to come in February on his own label PIT (Paso Inferior Tapes). This selection also perfectly reflects the complementarity of both John Z. K.'s projects..... Discover more here

“PERCOLATION" BY RAWKORDER


This mix is the logical follow-up of two years of you-know-what, I continued to buy a lot of records during this period but without the « physical » aspect of a club sound system, all the pure and harsh techno part of the spectrum has lost its appeal for living room listening and I have focused more on ambient, dub and other unclassifiable things. These are records that we have little opportunity to play during techno events while they are also part of my influences and what I would like to be inspired by in terms of production so it seemed logical to me to be able to also introduce them. So there are quite a few dancing moments, it is more thought of as the soundtrack of a calm evening at home. There are new stuff but also older tracks that I never tire of listening to....

“AUGURY" BY MUTANT JOE


This mix was somewhat of a departure from my typical live mixes in its arrangement/ tonal considerations. Having developed a slight cynicism towards the current direction of dance music, I chose tracks with little to no regard for genre or BPM, focusing more on tone and intensity. While there are a couple of danceable moments, it’s definitely hard to call this a ‘dance mix’, but more so a collection of tracks that explore the deconstruction of genre and my hopes for the direction of electronic music in the future...

“A VIAL OF MY SPIT AS A WARM KEEPSAKE" BY ACIDIC MALE


An honest reflection of emotional duality, an exorcism of the past self and a return to my corpse. A hard-to-describe state of memorializing, the feeling of fighting something exhausting to its core, resulting in shying away in fear or a in sudden need to rage against with adrenaline...

“I ONCE EMBRACED THE ABSURD” BY NEKYIA & FOSSADELRUMORE


Few months after the release of their collaborative 12" Facing the Absurd on Voidance Records, including remixes of Karim Mass (UVB-76) and Grebenstein (Downwards/Horo), Florentine experimental artists Nekyia and FossaDelRumore come back on their shared and long-lived obscure sound theories with an extreme journey into irrational territories, landscapes flooded with chimeras and mud creatures, organisms and thoughts still be shaped or evolved beyond all limits...

“SÉPARATISME” BY FRÉDÉRIC D. OBERLAND


Secede. To become a pack. A playground endlessly plowed by the restless of experimentation, those who choose off the beaten peaks path, radical, poetic, sensory, esoteric. A glittery black mixtape, enraged and radiant, to dance on the embers and celebrate dissent. «We are all separatists. France is your desert. The only thing missing from the arson is fire.»...

BLANK #1


“LUNE NOIRE” BY AESTHESIS


The evocation of a feeling of devotion related by changes of forms of these sound conceptions between the infernal and the divine, the attraction and the danger, the freedom or the narrowness, coming from a black abyss where the stars descend?
A multitude of sparks combining experimental music, neo-classical, electronica and industrial noises in an experience stimulating the relationship to meaning and loss of reference.
Beyond the lyrical narrative are instrumental mists, island works and distorted rhythms blending into a deep intensity... Discover more here.
