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]….”
The english Hip-Hop/Rap artist who goes-by Compulsive, currently living in Gothamberg, Sweden whom I had the privilege of getting to have a sit down with, just over the weekend to elaborate on his current projects as an artist in not only one major endeavor but being the other half to the group OUF. We have a ‘Q & A’ down below, where you can find out more about this artist, be sure to check out the soundcloud embeds to get a better sense of what Compulsive has to say in his music.
(B.E.S.C. ALBUM COVER)
NN: Born and raised in Sweden ?
Compulsive: I’ve lived 14 years in England, five in Sweden, half a year in Cali and half a year in Norway haha – haven’t set foot in England in four years though.
NN: Oh so you were actually born in England ?
Compulsive: Yeah, born in England homie
NN: Why so much traveling , you have to be in your early twenties ?
Compulsive: I’m actually 19 [haha]. I had an interesting childhood.
NN: How did you get started curating this type of music ?
Compulsive: Well, I’ve been rapping since 13, got into it through the sacred art of battle rapping via written text online – then tried rapping over beats and was wack for a long time until I finally started getting good, [haha] Nowadays me and mine just get fucked up and make crazy shit [haha]
yeah this is the opening track for my upcoming project – “Before Everything Started Changing“, a 15 track EP.
NN: When do you expect to have the tape ready for release?
Compulsive: The goal is a June/July release. Aiming for to release a short film showcasing three of the songs from the tape and the story around them, since they’re all connected before the release – so it’s all dependent on when the short film drops to be honest
NN: What will the short film be called and will it be released before or after the album?
Compulsive: It’s going to be called Darling, releasing it before the project drops
NN: So, can you explain to me the background of the Tapes name. Before Everything Changed, What changed, and when did it change ?
Compulsive: Well – once a guy loved a girl, and once a girl loved a guy. The project is more or less based around the feelings I had during (and after) this relationship I had with this girl. It wasn’t exactly a happy relationship, so the tape is kind of dark, [haha].
So I guess everything started changing, I began work on the tape a few months after I turned 18, so it’s about embracing maturity – adulthood is a bitch – about embracing emotions; and a lot of bitterness. I also kind of fell into the industry at the same time, getting to know A&R’s, working in some major label studio’s and just chilling with some people I’m blessed to know – while at the same time I was in this fucked up relationship.
“Change” is a huge theme in the project. There’s three tracks on this tape that are back to back with each other, Eternity (which is a love song I made to this girl for her birthday – I guess it was me just trying to reconcile our differences for a day) – Bitter (A song I made a month and a week or two afterwards, we had broken up and she had found another guy to get together with in the space of four days – so it’s exactly what the title says, the bitter diss song of a confused man) and December, which is all about me trying to find myself in the aftermath of everything and is the most vulnerable track on the project.
NN: The lore itself seems to be quite dark, is that what is to be expected of the entire tape, including the Video Feature “Darling”?
Compulsive: Darling, is going to be a showcase of these three songs and the story around them, kind of highlighting the relationship, the suicide attempts, the struggle and all the fucked up things that happened. The three songs are based around the last month or two of the relationship – although the project is littered with references to it all – and trying to show what came before the songs to give some more context to them all. Since it’s something so dear to me, I’m going to make sure everything in the short film is based entirely in reality and what happened, no artistic licenses.
NN: I hope you have found a way out of this dark place, in terms of day-to-day life, and can use that energy to manifest amazing music. Would you say you had any advice for those who find themselves in similar situations?
Compulsive: I’m out of that dark place now; which is nice. Well, I’d say leave that bitch, spark up some good kush and chill with your homies for a while; because if you’re ever in the same boat I was in – you’re going to need it.
NN: Who is producing your music currently?
Compulsive: A variety of names pop up, there’s a remix of Fire Squad on there, my close friend Dseize does three songs, Pelle, GooMar, Ogi, Wes Pendleton and a few other names
NN: Who makes up O U F?
Compulsive: As for O U F; it’s a duo between me and the producer of For BDK – Isolas.
NN: When did O U F form, and how did that become a reality?
Compulsive: We were introduced to each other by an A&R at Warner who thought we’d work together well and we did – we made a track together called Kill You and from there decided to work together more under the name O U F (Our Underground Firm) It’s a mutual side project fuelled by our love of experimenting with new styles and sounds – a more commercial, accessible yet new and fresh sound. We like to do things that haven’t been done before but in a way that it’s accessible even to those who aren’t fans of rap.The topics recently have been a little dark; a little drug and sex inspired – but that’s just where I was at that point in my life; we’re working on an upcoming project that will be a little more personal and a little more Crisis and less Right After

ZEHTROID VZN [ZEH-T-ROID VIZ-ION] from Planet Switchaz hopped in the NVR MND™ booth with your boy NVRMND NOME for an exclusive interview on his newest video, ‘Hourly Shadow Gossip‘. Take a look below for the ‘Q & A’ where discuss his Audio Book, the Planet Switchaz set, Handzum affiliates, & be sure to leave some love in the comment box.
NN: Who directed the video ?
ZEHTROID VZN: The video was directed by myself & my brother, RAYN (@HEAVYRAYN)
NN: Is your track feature on a tape ?
ZEHTROID VZN: ‘Hourly Shadow Gossip‘, actually is the 1st track, to appear on the 1st Audiobook released: Listen Here
NN: What do each of the Audiobooks talk about ?
ZEHTROID VZN: Each track is a chapter, you will have to listen & experience it for yourself.
NN: What are you reppin’ ?
ZEHTROID VZN: Planet Switchaz + HANDZUM
NN: How did you develop your flow, it sounds unique, almost an amalgamation of dialects ?
ZEHTROID VZN: I don’t hold back on any emotion. I just mirror out exactly what I’m feeling into the mic. My mic is my best friend. If (you, or my listeners) find I’m talking about a ghost in the song, & it is generally based on the fact I can feel something in the room. You will hear it in my voice, I do not hide anything.
NN: Where are you from (another Planet, I presume ?)
ZEHTROID VZN: I am from a small town called Collier Row, in the UK. I just recently moved to a very f****** empty place though. Its nice here though, its very peaceful. A great place to visit & discover other planets. No interruptions, no drunk teenagers shouting and standing outside shops. No idiots pretending they support what i do.
NN: So, are you English, & you live somewhere remote, outside of the downtown areas ? Sounds very peaceful, ominous, & maybe relaxing.
ZEHTROID VZN: I am English, but also I have Welsh, Polish, & Russian decent.
… & yeah man, this place would destroy most people my age if they came here. They call it ‘the dead end‘. I heard old people come here to die.
I don’t leave the house much, unless I’m getting some clothes at the charity shop. I just found this secret garden behind a spa centre though which is cool, its kinda awkward though sometimes. i was meditating there yesterday with headphones on & when I opened my eyes, a group of about twenty people in bath robes was staring at me [haha] pretty f****** weird. So, yeah – I stay inside creating as much as possible
NN: How did you connect with Handzum ?
ZEHTROID VZN: I spoke to ‘Rozz’ a while back when he dropped The Relic, we spoke a bit then we made that Dark Magician track on Hunters Grove, my last mixtape. i’ve just been a part of it ever since, naturally.

APHEX TWIN WAS MISSING ITS MASSIVELY POPULATED FAN BASS THAT THEY GENERATED SOME TIME, STARTING UP BACK IN THE MID-TO-LATE 80’S #BACKINTHEDAY, WHEN THEY TRIED TO RELEASE WHAT I LIKE TO CALL PSYCHO-TECH, THIS SOUNDTRACK COULD’VE BEEN THE AUDIBLE SPINE TO A TETSUO THE BULLET MAN SEQUEL, OR PERHAPS EVEN AN ITS OWN ORIGINAL IP I GAVE IT THAT NAME BECAUSE OF THEE DRIPPINESS; WITHIN ITS ACIDITY, IN THE SYNTH(Y) ELEMENTS SOME OF THE LOFI CRUNCHINESS SOUNDS LIKE THE TRACKS ARE SPITTING A SORT OF STATIC, REALLY GIVES ME THE FEELING THAT I AM KOMPLETELY FRIED DURING MY SESSIONS WITH TRACKS LIKE 6. Revpok 26:46. THEIR GENRES OFFICIALLY COINED AS TECH-HOUSE. THEIR ALBUM WAS “SCRAPED” JUST ABOUT THE TIME ITS’ SCHEDULED “1994” RELEASE DATE WAS EXPECTED TO BE, ONLY TRAFFICKING A RATHER SMALL “HANDFUL” OF 5 OR SO DISTRIBUTABLE COPIES BEING CUT; FOLLOWING THE ALBUM WAS LATER ABANDONED.
ONE EDITION OF ITS RELEASE MANAGED TO FIND ITSELF ON THE CYBER SELF OF THE WEB DISTRIBUTION SERVICE DISCOGS in 2014, SHORTLY AFTER WAS PURCHASED AND WAS PROPED UP IN A KICKSTARTER FOR A LONG ENOUGH WINDOW FOR THEIR FAN BASE TO INCREASE LARGE ENOUGH, OR WHAT EXISTING FANS THEY HELD TO RAISE TO BE SOLD AFTER ON EBAY, FOR EXACTLY $46,300, OR SOMETHING.
Although if you care to listen to the decade old tech-house from Aphex Twin’s (Richard D. James’) “unabridged, long-ago-created-yet-recently-released” ‘Caustic Window’ LP. You can read all about it, where ever you may find it on the internet (kickstarting and all), but here you can actually listen to the album, in all its GOLDXX glory. #Endjoy.

“Care To Know?’ Info:
To preserve dynamic range and prevent digital clipping, because these recordings are sourced from vinyl, what was made were some very minor, “unobtrusive edits”, like to know more, well the individual track volumes (between the L & R channels) were normalized, an overall amplitude increase/decrease from each track were adjusted to mantain a continuity, relative loudness. Finally some of the incidental record hissing need to be removed, strategically, the fade in/out, & the pops on “Jazzphase” were removed.”
OKKVLTKAT, also known as † Mike Fleming † hailing from the UK & serving it savage with three album releases featuring 20+ tracks in total, just over the last three months, kinda grants this ∞ listen if you haven’t been sipping the witches brew for the last few weeks. Wanna hear what he’s been crafting, scroll down to see what he has conjured on his bandcamp.
Also Be Sure To Scope OkkvltkAtt‘s Youtube Channel, For the Latest & Greatest!As well as his cryptic soundcloud page, with a few new track releases and remixes such as; “Numb” a single from his new album BLVCKHEARTS.
