Fresh Stream




A strain of real terror runs through certain strains of electronic music  – the throbbing, merciless beats; pulsing, anonymous bodies sweating through the void of dance clubs; no cathartic choruses or hummable hooks.  Finnish veteran Mika Vainio has spent a fair share of his career exploring this “dark side” of techno.  For his newest release, Kilo, Vainio revisits the old haunts of his hugely influential dub-industrial project, Pan Sonic.  The new album, out on the UK sublabel Blast First Petite, features ten efficiently titled tracks, each exploring an echoed buzz similar in momentum to Basic Channel, but overall noisier and with a more sinister bent.  Vainio’s latest does have some evil shoes to fill – Kilo is billed as a more “beat-oriented” sequel to his 2011 release, Life (…It Eats You Up), a barrage of fractured drones and demented waterfalls of noise.  Stream the teaser trailers below and pre-order the double vinyl right here.
