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 ••
A musician named Bryan Dellamorte, from an anonymous area of Florida began creating some beautiful dark wave. Under the alias D3∆†hh CvL†, he opens “unfamiliars”, up to the undead-world of witch house, #Endjoy & #NvrMnd #WitchausWednesday only on the #NvrBlog
In that sounds of phantoms hymning, we find the unanimously endless “trapstyle” playing skeleton tapping against his snare, staring back as the hairs on our neck are raised just high enough to meet the peaks in the scope of tracks; such as “I Will Take Your Light”; Listen close to the first two tracks, & you wont be disappointed with them, keeping in mind that the major problem with #WH “floppy discs” (thats krypt for shitty disc jockeys) is they don’t seem to be developing their sounds enough to get into their genre and really even be relevant. The heritage of witch house (came from a joke, but) definitely has some pretty unprogressive & progressive artists – in its own right, but unlike these songs on this ‘EP’ titled after the final song on the ‘EP’ I WILL TAKE YOUR LIGHT; SH▲DOW EYES & BURIED FLESH (but not excluding I will Take Your Light) feature very unique and uncompromising similarities between the three of them. These three (completely) different tracks stand together – incredibly well, & offer a great listen! Its too bad – The damn thing is so short.

WITCH HOUSE WEDNESDAY
This week we are featuring an unfamiliar artist, known as †RIɅLS. Some of you you may be familiar with the Cardiff, UK, others not so much, but what you should be anticipating is an omnipotent stir of venoms waiting to be poured into your ears, eyes and mouth. Sip from this witchy-brew, but don’t say I didn’t warn you…
I picked four of my favorites, Infect Me was the only track that had two remixes I thought were both truly unique from one another, and still remained within a genre specific confide of its respected influential components
LUVKER, was another one of the more interesting releases by Trails, and remixed by an additional artist. It follows through with the similar juxtaposition of erie fizzily-ness, synths skittering & pulsing, all the while being lullabied; “Im not afraid to die, again”.
There was also Stay With Me, a more minimalist spectrum, in terms of the vapid bass sounds that we find in the lo-fi distortion(ist) deathrave(y) synths, followed up by the doomed out synths in the track WASTED
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.
