Anybody listening to Swarm Intelligence's new "Rust" album and comparing it with its previous one, 2014's "Faction" will very quickly notice a sift towards somewhat more accoustic sounds, more organic soundscapes and away from purely electronic synthesis. This is something made very obvious by the brand new video for "Iridescent" which you can watched here or below. A year after their work for "Antenna" (taken from "Faction", the29nov team have come up with something very different this time again, reflecting well the partly humane, partly machine-like, but definitely rustier side of Swarm Intelligence's new album. The result is hypnotic, perfectly in sync with the music, and provides a great visual pendant to the track. Enjoy.
From well-kept secret to one of the most praised names for dark, distorted techno, Ontal are already among the most talked about names for the genre. With "Entropia", this Serbian duo gets the chance to display its talent in a full-length format, offering very diverse material rich in heavy percussive beats, grating noise soundscapes and dynamic arrangements. Drawing inspirations from industrial forefathers as well as from modern producers, Ontal confirms with this album its position as one of the driving force when it comes to heavy, noisy and precise composition. Ever-changing but constantly powerful, "Entropia" is an industrial tour-de-force.

Friday Freebie on a Thursday this week. With Ontal's new album coming out tomorrow, we thought that we might point you to some free music by this young duo, and do so before the album comes out.
Ontal have gathered a lot of recognition for such a young project, but with "Entropia" coming out tomorrow, they might reach people who are not yet familiar with their music. What better way to correct this than listen to a free hour-long mix recorded and put online in September of this year. It should give you a good idea of what Ontal sound like behind the decks. Watch out, though: this is a DJ set, which features a lot of music not written by Ontal.
We're having a tight release schedule this month, and are accordingly generous with previews: following Swam Intelligence's "Iridescent" and Ontal's "Entropia" comes today a full length excerpt from Drumcorps's "Falling Forward".

Not to leave you without music on this post, below is a new full length track taken from Swarm Intelligence's new "Rust" album.
The following track, "Iridescent", showcases well the depth of the sounds recorded by Swarm Intelligence for this album, his synthesis work and the approach he took on his new album. Enjoy, and not that three more tracks can be streamed here.
DJ Hidden's fourth studio album displays yet again a refinement in this remarkable musician's techniques and a shift of styles. Rather than offering a long cinematic experience, Noel Wessels gathers here a wide range of tracks, with some of his most experimental tunes to date to some of the hardest. Sharp as always and extremely imaginative, "Directive" impresses in the way it marries genres in a very cohesive way, keeping true to DJ Hidden's aesthetics while pointing out in new directions. A new essential album by an essential producer. (Get this on CD / as digital files)
