THE FOLLOW UP TO THE APRIL RELEASE By WICCA PHASE SPRINGS ETERNAL xXx JAYYEAH titled SHUT MY EYES Ep. It was an interesting listen, very short, but also very sweet. A folky dark electronic bass hip hop exploration on a 4 Track Ep.
ABERCROMBIE AND ME (THE SECOND RELEASE, 2015). Some of the tracks of this Emotional Trapstyle LP much like NIGHTFALL (PROD. LEDERRICK) 03:08, offer a sort of oppositivity to their own style. The instrumentals trickling, as a vox transformer astronauts the scranton rappers voice, it becomes so melded its harder to hear Wicca. Which bummed me out. I recommend playing a bit louder if you can, or prefer to enjoy music in that way. The only solution I could think of – The album shines so bright with 4. GO WITH YR HEART (FEAT. MACKNED) (PROD. DØVES) such solid samples, in the sense that the emotional impact which they connect with their lyricism is pure, and their creative intent remains intact in less ways than I would have liked, I don’t get the same energy of feel from the rest of the album like I do with track 8. SADDEST DAY ON SATURN (FEAT. MACKNED) (PROD. JAYYEAH). The integrity of the emotional fierceness of the instrumental and the lyrics from both artists featured on the track
The highlight of the album is an cloudy electro-trapstyle track called 9. STEER ME (FEAT. BABY TEAR$) (PROD. FROZENGANG) witch sort of reminds me of the Black Smurf Toonami Ep, that came out last year. Was a relentlessly hypnotic and hyperraw. The second have of the tape offers the desired side effect I was seeking. There is this very futurist horror core element I found in the album artwork, and especially in track 10. I’M LEBRON (PROD. JAYYEAH). We would have liked to see more of that heavy energy in the beginning, but if that is a foreshadowing of the future of Wicca Phase LP’s, I am a hopeful listener.
Until next time, NVRMNDUS †
TIMTONIK (Producer/DJ) lit the internet on fire when he landed his lamborghini Death Star on the NVR MND soundcloud (two nights ago…)
Dialing us down of that bullsh*t & onto another masterpiece of his, a preview of what is come in his later release of the EP called “PURGATORY”; including 4 Tracks. starts with a brand new track of mine called “Deep Dark Drone”] A video will be premiered at a later date, stay tune for an update once that information is revealed. What do I have to say about it, Nothing more than you would conjure from the experience from you just listened to the damn thing! It is so slick & dark – but has a very comforting vibration in a sense. That sense being, instead of cold/wet youre getting warm/wet; at the same time. The waves hover all over you. I think this is by far one of my all-time favorite NVRM1X’s; produced by TIMTONIK. seriously a glimpse into Alien Tech (AT).
It’s imaginative, the first emissions aren’t so predictable, to instigate any feelings of nostalgic Tech House. Well I say that, but with a grain of salt if you’re an enthusiast. The spectrum these days has definitely changed since its beginnings, but what some of us refer to as “old heads”, are a pedigree & cultural those personality types are still functioning models of society.
Those of you whom I’m speaking of are already activated enough to enjoy this mix. It’s an experiential stain on the minds of those who enjoy a hypnotic & trance like dancing experience. Steam evaporates from the symbols, as the bass of your feet stomping the ground in an ethereal orgasmic tension. Never wanting to stop, as music turns into an alarming of deliberate movements to exhume oneself from their prisons.

A NVR MND Moment from TIMTONIK
TIMTONIK: “…Also there is coming an Teaser for my upcoming music video…”
“This music video which is set to release, come end of June/July on VOXNOX Records“
“The EP is called PURGATORY; including 4 Tracks. starts with a brand new track of mine called “Deep Dark Drone, which will be released soon on the voxnox records compilation. At the end (50:00 – 50:08) you can hear the first chords of an upcoming
freedownloadof mine; which is called [Sound of Silence]…”
“…Another thing about the Mix is that this mix is slightly different to my own mixtape series Future Death Tape. It’s an more Dark Deep Techno – After Hour Set, which should show that my music will become even more darker and deeper. It only includes music i personally prefer and i would play those tracks on afterhour gigs. But I will still continue my FDT series with that dark future techno music. And, I as Tim Tonik will also produce that kind of music , but also that new deep and dark [stuff]….”

Everyone remembers Cities Aviv, Gavin Mays born in 1989; for his productions Digital Lows (in 2011), Black Pleasure; Black Pleasure through streetwear company Mishka NYC‘s record label before signing to Young One Records – 2012), and after then the album; titled Come to Life (2014), now his fourth release, a brand new iteration into Memphis Tennessee producers’ mental, an album titled Your Discretion Is Trust (2015).
Cities Aviv has been featured in both Spin, as well as Pitchfork. This album sort of presented me with the problems of an individual facing the loss of his time; from either spending to much of it on-with-or-for some particular person, or object, or identity [even], or possibly through aging, or as a maturing problem or person, but that the blocks on which social & natural dictated thoughts, & personal affirmations indicate feelings of unrest & desires for more affection through that which has programmed itself or ourselves with, & is or will become apart of us.
The first four tracks, are amazing and the most unique, the fifth is an interlude, and by no means deserves to be skipped over. I want you to feel those and a few others out for yourselves. (Lets talk about a few, full listen below)
Classic Cities (6.Earth Signs (feat. RPLD GHSTS); 1:46) reminding me of how his raw percussion two-stepping hardcore progressiveness influences me in such a way, I cannot stop listening. Such awesome production, the bells and whistles are really clean on that one, and again Aviv has excellent vocal styles, you cant really get tired of listening to him talk about things you relate to so well such as a song on the album; like 8. Discrimination; 2:43. A track that attempts to tackle the corruption of the media, events in Baltimore, relationships or the inverse of such regarding white rappers. Chanting, “Discrimination, Turn The Page”. It’s wicked, and it such a clear depiction of pop-culture. The tracks that follow this recipe on this LP are going to be timeless pieces for this young artist, who is often times channeling a sort of guerrilla revolutionary,
Eventually we Interlude, (14. Survival Fit; 03:53), to a woman (I’m assuming, is a companion of Gavin’s or relative. Im not quite sure. At first I thought it was a little kid, but I do not know. I enjoyed what they said rather anyhow,) but she goes on to describe something call “Nature-ology“. The unknown context to which I am stricken by and feel as though I don’t need an explanation for what it could be defined as, yet I would want to the author of the terminology to explain to it to, to correspond if I even knew it myself. Truly it is a tale, of survival. Never let anyone stop you from doing what you want to do in your life, “live freely…”, he says, “until we sleep in those boxes”. This lyric is featured in Survival Fit is the last track on the Album, but also my favorite, along with the very industrial psycho noise of the Nico Interlude, a very wishy-washy gargle of angsty distortion,
It’s process is completed once its stifles our self-governing skills, and not having the power true have the true understanding of being programmed by the a hateful system, or one that doesn’t wish you to fulfill yourself. . Our powers must be activated from within ourselves, the world must be be altered, to fill voids in the minds of many desperate people including ourselves. A new spectrum of expression as an artist whose validity is uncanny, for the pure fact that he is reflecting his understanding of these faces he sees are unfortunates parodies of what they could or should have possibly become in turn.
A big diss to what society on the “upper crust” believes, is the only American society that exists. Due to it sheer unintelligible behaviors & the size of the consensus and popularity of itself, while it destroys multiple platforms of the rest of the worlds ability or option to invoke their helpful or demonized controversial suggestions. His latest genre bending No Wave, Power World Nature, Anti-Pop Post-Violent album has reached the entrance to our mind on pop-counter pop-cultics and post-anti-socialistic systems programed into us. There are some dark elements, and there some very playful elements in not only the production of the instruments, but overall. I highly recommend this album. Whether you are an avid listener of Cities Aviv or otherwise, this piece is 14 tracks deep, including the brief minute or so long interludes. There are only a few. It’s a great experience, and am most likely going to return to it a quite a bit to listen to.

Aural Sects published Madden‘s New 4-Track ‘EP’ tilted Past Transmissions From An Urban Futurist. These are collected transmissions from different times and spaces. This album is represented by four pieces made in the human tradition of storytelling and collage. The Iamu Urme project, created by MADDEN, uses intuitive senses and feel energy to express the innermost search of understanding and channel it on to the urban landscape of the dance floor. A fusion of Deep/Tech-House, Experimental-Dance, Pop-Electronic, & Witch House
Another weekly edition of dark electronic, dance, and experimental rave music! This week we are featuring an artist, some hardcore fans of the genre may recognize. Hailing all the way from the motherland, and yes I am talking about Russia! In the Eastern European city Rostov-on-Don (a port city and the administrative center of Rostov Oblast and the Southern Federal District of Russia) resides Portwave. That may be a tip off, as for the reason why “Port” is in their name, funny huh! Well heres why you should take them seriously, Portwave just released an Experimental-Noise, Crushwave, #Witchhouse ‘LP’ titled There Sore Eyes. The LP features immensely great dance tracks, absorbing you, and entracing you in all of its warm fuzziness with tracks like the first track on the album “Flora“, jumping out of that warm synth experience for a racey synth solo, returning listeners to hardcore gothpop percussions, and hymms. I do not wanna spoil the entire listen for you, so go ahead an plug in your head set ••
