DIANA BERTI - Tragedy Of The Uncommons

Diana Berti (Violet Poison) says « I Am influenced by the works of Suzanne Ciani (“Seven Waves”, 1982), Erik Satie (Gymnopédies, almost), Enno Velthuys (his whole discography), jingles/themes of magic/esoteric shows broadcasted in Tuscany’s TV channels during the 80’s, background music from metaphysical giallo/horror movies from the same decade (as in Dario Argento’s “Phenomena”). » From VHS and broadcast Giallo youthful obsessions emerge these strange analog synth scapes sequencing picnoleptic labyrinthine mysteries of uncertainty..HUGE! Out on Cuss Fetish US (Cassette Format)

Traxman "Slash Time - The Album"

Chicago OG Traxman lights up the ‘floor like an xmas tree with Slash Time for one of the footwork scene’s strongest labels, Duck N’ Cover. In proper battle mode, Traxman declassifies some of his most personal, deadly material to date - and that’s saying something in light of his definitive Da Mind of Traxman volumes and the Teklife album for Lit City Trax. We’re talking stone cold blinders like Boogie Woogie, which sounds like Tango & Ratty on a jazz tip circa ’93, or the strobing, psycho-acoustic ghetto probe of Taken A Trip You, and the hyper soul flow of Survive for starters, or the accelerated motion sickness of Slash Time and the Hecker-gone-footwork freaks of Unstoppable and Electro Tekk to seriously polish you off. Highly recommended!

Swedish iDEALIST, Joachim Nordwall spills the psychic contents of his skull temple in Soul Music 2, just over two year since his 1st volume, also for Entr’acte. Technically a collaboration with Dungeon Acid on percussion, this album pursues a rich seam of solo releases under Nordwall’s own name since 2010 with a typically ascetic approach to hypnotic, icy minimalism, dissonant tone and plaintive rhythm. As you might expect from a core member of The Skull Defekts, Fire! Orchestra, and Saturn and the Sun - among many others - it’s psychotropic in intent, and executed with a fine balance of loose, whacked-out improvisation and ritualist vision revealing his soul like the results of some Ayahuasca ceremony, or a weekend on the reindeer pish. He traverses seven tracks distilling the “Energy and power of the pulse” from the atomised atmospheres and underlying throb of Blow My Mind thru the cranky waltz of Solar Skull with its buzzing, tribal sounding strings, which also billow out with howling oscillators or vocals into High Speed Self Destructor, before focussing on globular bass and salty blips with Psychic Reality and roiling into eyes-in-back-of-head mode with Slave to the Rave Ritual and dancing on your nerve-ends with the lacquer-bubbling Black Stain on my Brain.

Hieroglyphic Being & J.I.T.U. Ahn-Sahm-Buhl - Civilization That Is Dying

Recorded over a week of studio sessions in Brooklyn, they map out a maze of pathways connecting free and spiritual jazz with freestyling techno, avant-garde expression and electronic abstraction, moving backwards, sideways and forwards from the advanced primitivism of 'Apes & Apes' thru the jazz-techno wormholes of 'Brain Damage' to the gritty apex of 'F**k The Ghetto / Think About Outer Space' and a mind-expanding 18 minutes of motorik psych bass, sidereal electronics and ankh-charged vibes in the title cut. Huge Recommendation!

Shapednoise - Different Selves

Born in Palermo in 1989, he became interested in rave culture - particularly electronic music - when he was 14. In 2009 he moved to Milan to study Audio Engineering, where he began to dedicate himself to producing music. 
After finishing his studies in 2011, he moved to Berlin to start working on REPITCH - the new label he co-founded with Ascion and D. Carbone - focusing on dark tonalities. Shapednoise is the experimental gatekeeper at REPITCH and has kept this style at the forefront of the label’s focus. 
In 2012, Shapednoise began working with Violet Poison for the Violet Poison imprint - an experimental/hybrid techno label inspired by the greatest Italian horror movie directors from the 1960s and 70s as well as obscure producers of vintage electronica and harsh noise and industrial music. 
He is also one half of the collaborative project Violetshaped. The duo has released a self-titled album as well as reworks by artists such as Keith Fullerton Whitman, Justin Broadrick, Vatican Shadow, Roly Porter, Kangding Ray and Grischa Lichtenberger.
In 2013, Shapednoise had his solo debut album on limited-edition cassette on Hospital Productions - the label of Domnick Fernow AKA Prurient/ Vatican Shadow. Not long after he released a mini-LP on 12” for experimental UK label Opal Tapes
Different Selves (Vinyl Edition of 500 copies Mastered and Cut by Matt Colton, includes an instant download of the album, out on Type Recordings) it's quite an experience of ripped techno romanticism and cybererotic fantasy like a decadent time lapse rave sex (on acid) phenomenon. Fascinating  album!
