We're back with another installment of Selections, our monthly picks of the new, now and next. As always we like to focus on what's coming out of the underground in the industrial, techno and left field electronic realms. We have a nice batch of releases this month that are available now or will be out soon. Enjoy.
Crash ID - Sacrificio (Private Selection Records)
A top notch release from L.A.'s Private Selection. This crew has been throwing some of the best parties in the city and now they're releasing great records as well. For the latest, they're shedding some light on Crash ID, a killer producer out of Argentina. Sacrificio is a 6 track vinyl EP of twisted techno, weirdo electronics and quiet mind-melters that disrupt the the monotony of the the every day. Pick this one up here.
V/A - Infidel Selections Vol. 1 (Infidel Bodies)
We've featured a few releases from this Italian imprint and with good reason. They're always coming with both emerging and established talent and their latest compilation has a it all. An incredible survey of industrial/ambient/EBM artists from across the globe which includes Dee Grinksi (Russia), Ryuji Takeuchi (Japan), Kollaps (Australia) and much more. Dive into this for maximum exposure of quality darkness. Cover art by the amazing Lagomorphosis. Out soon on Infidel Bodies.
V/A - The Great In The Small (Gooiland Elektro)
A thrilling 12" out of the Netherlands, this Gooiland Elektro comp is perhaps the most dance floor ready release on the label to date. Featuring four artists, Max Dalhous, ЯTRA, Vitriol and Utroid, this is doom laden techno for societal collapse. Can't get enough of this Vitriol track but the whole release excellent. For more visit here.
DJ Loser & Penelope's Fiance - Λ196 ΠΡΟΣΚΛΗΤΗΡΙΟ (She Lost Kontrol)
Another Brvtalist favorite out of Italy, the label is back with a split from two Greeks who are some of the best in today's underground. Indulge in dark, ritual waves and haunting experimentations as these two provide tracks both solo and together to create a seemingly out of body experience. Out May 31st on She Lost Kontrol.
V/A - The TrackHead EP (Slaying Medusa)
A nice one from the newly launched Slaying Medusa Records. This features jaked up house and mutant disco jams for the new generation. Featuring the legendary Mystic Bill and Black Lodge residents Vexation and Optimistic Misanthropes, give this one a spin and let the bizarre flow through you. Pick up the vinyl here.
