With cutting edge influences and immaculate production, Nigen is the latest act from the Netherlands to combine EDM with industrial in a forward-thinking, atmospheric package. Gaining notoriety on Soundcloud for being a prolific remix artist with interpretations of artists that vary from Kaskade to Wumpscut, Nigen also provided a standout official remix for SHIV-R on the “Eye of the Needle” remix release.
Now Nigen mastermind Niels Doe presents his debut original release, the 4-track EP “Monachopsis”. Trap breakdowns collapse into vocoded vocal dystopias, distortion and melody exchange dynamically and fluid tempos drive a bed of deep bass under a synthetic sky of trance lead patterns.
Mastered and released by Blind Mice Productions, “Monachopsis” will hit all digital stores on 26 September 2016.
Dutch melancholic electro artist Benjamin’sPlague continues to make his beautifully twisted mark on the musical map with a massive new single: “Elated”. The title-track is a collaboration with elegant industrial group SHIV-R and sees the vocalists of both acts trading verses over a bed of harsh percussion and lush piano, leading the listener through an opiate-induced synthetic labyrinth. The single also includes the new song “Devour” that showcases composer Benjamin Schoones’ masterful use of melody over a club-friendly soundset, and rounds out the total of 5 tracks with remixes from Massive Ego, Simon Carter and Benjamin Schoones’ side-project Noire Antidote.
Mixed and mastered by Blind Mice Productions, “Elated” is out now through all digital outlets.
Fuelled by distorted female vocals, contemporary electro beats and an atmosphere drenched in darkness, Asylum Sisters hit genres such as witch house, industrial and even metal on their way to achieving their personal sonic revolution.
The creative force behind the project - Caitlin Mary Cunningham and Martin Pike from Melbourne, Australia - don’t shy away from drawing from a wide range of sounds in order to deliver the emotional impact of their message and you will hear rapped vocals with politically charged lyrics, discordant guitars carrying an aggressive attitude and bitcrushed techno sequences mixed seamlessly along the way.
“A Faith Called You” is the sophomore EP from the group, featuring 7 new tracks and carrying the weight of a full album’s worth of dangerous ideas and musical innovation. Coming 1 July 2016 on Blind Mice Productions.
