This small project was sent my way a few months ago – a 3 track EP of harsh noise from German producer Blumt. A beautifully dark debut, self released via the artists bandcamp page. Blumt uses a palette of deep ambience and shattering dissonance to paint his work – making a fitting soundtrack for an old horror film. The project finishes massively with what I consider to be a pretty damn amazing track, “Circle Bit” – pure energy packed IDM that leaves you wanting more.
I will be eagerly waiting to hear more from this producer – with Merge dropping back in January, maybe we will get lucky before the years end…
rohs! records brings us a dank little release from Andrea Porcu (Label Founder), a collection of “Textures”. Only 3 tracks, but satisfying to the core. Grab the EP today via bandcamp at your chosen price.
Written, produced and mastered by Andrea Porcu.

Fresh from Berlin’s Avian Label is this collection of hypnotic tracks by 400PPM. Locked Grooves is a collection of experimental techno loops constructed by Shawn O’Sullivan. The release itself is 10 tracks of raw, relentless electronics, with satisfying jagged edges. I would even dare to call this a Punk interpretation of techno, with the often distorted tones buzzing from track to track, as well as the startlingly short track lengths (most tracks barely breach the 2-minute mark!).
All in all, its a breath of fresh air in the oft-over-produced techno scene. You can scoop the digital album for free now via Avians Bandcamp.
Fresh from rohs! Records out of Germany (though, not fresh to the universe), originally released in 2015, Periferica is an experimental techno album by Tears Of Change.
Periferica is a deep, churning project with a brutal yet mellow urgency. The sound is a unique juxtaposition of throbbing kicks and buzzing bass, combined with some haunting atmospheres. What results is a satisfying blend of energetic acid and high-quality textured ambience. Some of my favorite parts of this project were the most dissonant, where the sounds seemed to be combating each-other within the track!
For a limited time you can order a Compact Disc of the Album, or download the digital files, via the rohs! Records Bandcamp.
