Smok : Brain Damage [M039]

“Who is behind this curious musical project called SMOK? It is a question I made to myself a couple of years ago after listening to a collab between Andrés and Nicolás (a.k.a Slang). Time has passed and I have discovered that this curiousity comes from Andrés, who is music studious and part of the new generation of producers from Quinta Región. Brain Damage is the result of his curiosity. Accelerated beats, bass drums, violent boxes and acid basses; a sharp chaos which is tidied up within mysterious and obscure melodies. An album that brings me back to the 90’s and spotting strong influences of the electro, such as Underground Resistance, Drexciya, Aux88, or Radioactive Man, among others. Nineties reminiscence that mixes technological advance and that succeeds in locating us nowadays, thus giving life to an album which treasures the origins of the electro-techno, but at the same time adapts perfectly to the present.”

Palm Era : Gimo [M025]

Palm_Era (Claudio Cisterna) is a chilean producer from Santiago. A long-standing electronic music producer, he had been publishing under the netlabel Impar and the record label U-Cover from Belgium under the alias Flipper, a project that is closer to IDM. Later under the alias ‘Chiodata’, he immerses himself more into the experimental side of music and releases some of his works under the Irish record label Fort Evil Fruits and Cocodriller. He has also developed other projects such as ‘Jon Claudio’, a fusion between electronic music and Krautrock. Palm_Era released his album called ‘Coincidental’ under the record label Illuminated Paths from Florida, USA in 2015. He has also collaborated in compilations that have been released by the netlabel Modismo and netlabel Epasonidos. These days, he is presenting Gimo, his first publication under Modismo which travels between diverse rhythms built with complex and yet innovative structures. ‘Gimo’ essentially takes us into a profound and flavorful trip where basslines and synths that are analogically worked combine. In this work, Palm_Era reveals his good taste and skills. The way to approach percussion in this record excels due to its production duty and Latino sense. Samples lead to a trance that is hard to get rid of and melodies gleams at the right time, as well as the details in experimentation. All this results in a very refreshing and futuristic album that will stand out in time without a doubt.

André Baradit, electronic musician, Valparaíso 2017.”
