CdV P079 Perc special

Sometimes Perc still feels like a new artist, but it is easy to forget that his rise to prominence has taken a decade of hard work, perseverance and risks. The north London-based artist has recently delivered his second genre defining album “The power and the glory” which mixes blatant experimentalism with crunchy and battering rhythms without being afraid to make political comment and keep the mind as well as the body occupied. Ali Wells’s label Perc Trax and his new sublabel Submit have also become powerful strongholds of the modern industrial techno sound alongside newcomers Fifth Wall Records and Karl O’Connor’s Downwards imprint, who celebrate their 20th anniversary year, and who both feature prominently this week.

CdV P058: Dub techno special

Due to technical issues a voiceless program this week, with an unmixed run of dub techno and dub-inspired tracks replacing our promised special on Laurel Halo which will be next week. There is plenty on offer though, from some powerful driving club tracks from Bleak, Reeko and Savas Pascalidis, to more atmospheric numbers by Andrea Cichecki, Grad_U and Deepchord, some more experimental dub-flavoured electronica from Genotype and Downliners Sekt and even a vocal track by the under rated German producer Fenin.

CdV P043: Dub techno special

This week on Cabeza de Vaca and Scanner FM we preview a mix of Spanish and international artists/labels who all purvey their own distinct take on the dub techno sound. We range from the deep atmospheres of Exium from Asturias and Refracted’s forest gloom to the heavy industrial malaise of the mysterious Subjected and the moody dubstep of Berlin’s Freund der Familie.
