Do you think we live in the end times? Are you feeling morbid? Do you ever think about borders? Are you playing with knives or ever thinking about how finite everything is?
If the answer to any of the questions is positive, then listen to this show with something refreshing on your hands!
Sounds for the fire that is burning inside, songs for scorching temperatures and for passing through fire. Unsettling combinations of frequencies going hand-in-hand with heartfelt lyricism. The soundtrack of July 2023, a month with the craziest weather on this planet. We couldn’t resist the temptation to represent it!
Mix something spicy, sweet and zingy!
What would a petrodragonic apocalypse feel like? Well, we’ve got the soundtrack for it, and shall say no more on the matter. Heavy guitars, grinding synth, industrial textures, and some post apopalyptic folk was the order of the month. And the only way to feel what we felt is to make something bittersweet and spicy…to drink, of course!
May 2023 called for spiritual challenges so we will give you the clues that traverse this soundtrack: recommended shelter, violence pédagogique, the truth that belongs to the fools. If you find the common thread that runs through all these, you will have unlocked the mystery behind this month’s playlist.
Make potions, drink poisons, join us and howl!
April allowed for the coexistence of sounds associated with the harshness of wintry weather and those encountered in an enchanted forest. Somewhere in the maze of distorted industrial textures, there are glimpses of worlds where wonder and the thrill of discovery of new dimensions coexist. Whether you consider yourself to be a healer or in need of a healing potion, take this playlist with you on a walk around the forest. Potions are not required, as we assume you will mix some on your way.
All the spirits of electronic music have been summoned to channel the energy of March 2023. We welcomed them, treated them to some homemade potions, danced with them, allowed them to bring even more darkness into our minds then let them go on their own way. We challenge you to take a trip down these disquieting sonic routes and come back illuminated about whether darkness can get even darker.
Mix your poison!
Dear darklings, we hope you are as happy as we are with all the music that has been reaching our ears and the live gigs that have started filling up our calendars for the year. Don’t mind the quietness of the streets, don’t feed the anger and the sadness — this is a soundtrack for dancing in the streets.
“Because things are the way they are, things will not stay the way they are”—Bertolt Brecht
So this is how we waved goodbye to 2022, with some fury, some melancholy, and some desire for change, all captured within post punk, playful ceremonial and cinematic synthwave, dynamic IDM and cynical punk storytelling. Music for the longest night of the year, music for the darkness that is hidden in the silence of the wintry landscapes, music that invites you to prepare a warm cocktail and join us!
Imagine finding yourselves in an abandoned fairground where all the equipment swings sideways slowly as the wind blows, imagine the stillness and the feeling of disquiet…and now imagine somebody wrote a soundtrack for all that, the landscape and its emotional output.
Prepare yourselves as you wish for the longest playlist of the year, the creepiest sounds and some added poetic weirdness by Jointweird who were possessed by something otherworldly and answer questions famous songs have posed in their titles!
You’ll need more than one poison for this one dear darklings!
