For its second release, Berlin's Blacksilk Records gives us Jose Macabra's London is Dead. Originally from Spain, Jose Macabra moved to London to study design at the London College of Communication and there he has been an integral part of London's electronic scene while also showcasing his renown live act across Europe. Primarily known for his "teknoise" and "electronic ritual", Macabra has produced one of his most powerful works yet.
London Is Dead is a journey into the realms of London Life these days. Mainly composed using field recordings, processed vocals and processed acoustic instruments, this 60 minute piece is a striking cycle of life and death. Many of the work's ideas came together while Macabra took part in a collaboration with Vj London and Disenters’ Gallery called "London Is Dead." This is one for those who a appreciate deep, cerebral experimentations and heavy atmospheres.
After last years Golden by Plovdiv, London is Dead is another great release from this upstart label and we look forward to seeing more.
