Leather Coated Bitch is the latest offering from the Balkans blitzkrieg brutalist DJ Bazootka – an inferno of collective entities; cross-weaving the stylizations of ghettotek, Detroit, Dutch punk techno and smoked out brain-danced inflections.
How much bang would you like? Yes.
Since the beginning of quarantine artists have been releasing more music then before to at least try to stay afloat and continue with their love. And it feels like more than ever before that many releases get lost in the algorithm. This had almost happened with the latest SÆDEM release. Luckily, if one searches for current bangers themselves, rather than letting machines choose what you might like, you will be able to trace down gems like this one.
Different Views, More To Choose
It is not a new normal. Everything is a new NOW. Céili Collective was recommended to me in my Bandcamp feed and the description “Various artist focused label driving out of London” caught my attention right away. When I then saw that they released a compilation featuring some artists I really like, I bought it on cassette without hesitation and listening.
If blood was sweat, then death is dance. Sonically marrying brittle landscapes and unknown terror, two producers from the Brutalist location of Skopje bring an offering of four tracks, divulging in themes of industrial trajectories and introspective sonic mass. Weighted and lucid, DJ Sorry capitalizes on the aggressive and agnostic architecture that encloses him, whilst Likvidator invites solemn and reprise, etching a stairwell to the unflinching realms of pure consciousness. Both articulate even measurements of the introspective and the forward-thinking. One for the head as well as the heart.
The release will be available digitally on 10th September, but you can pre-order now on Bandcamp.

“The first and most important thing an individual can do is to become an individual again, decontrol himself, train himself as to what is going on and win back as much independent ground for himself as possible.”
― William S. Burroughs
Vladimir Dubyshkin is back and is taking us on another trip of his auditory mind adventures. As he explains it himself, this one is a mesh of inspiration from absurd dialogues from Russian lullabies and the overflooding porn culture from the 90s.
The newest EP “Pornographic Novel” will be released on 21st of August, and is available for pre-ordering on Bandcamp and on Vinyl. It is released on Russian label трип led by Nina Kraviz, and it’s the third installment by him on the label, previously having released a two-parted release “For Various Reasons” on Berlin based Macro Recordings.
