Lost In Everett’s Realities
PØLI and Lorenzo Raganzini’s HEX Recordings returns with its first Various Artists release, entitled ‘Deviant Misbehaviours Vol. 1’. Since its inception in March 2019, the imprint has been synonym with the most extreme spheres of the Techno scene, presenting a recurrent post-apocalyptic sound through the genre’s diverse sonic fields.
For its fourth release, the Barcelona based label welcomes 11 artists from 6 different countries for a 10 track compilation with some of the label’s mainstays, new players and old school legends.
A+W regular Codex Empire opens with squelchy bass and an EBM drive on ‘Primary Function’, while crunchy snares, distorted Moog leads and delayed hats take over in Samot’s ‘Night Shift’. Joton delivers a percussive, fantastic groove with a screeching lead synth in ‘Empty Town’.
Then, label backbone VII Circle thunders with sinister hardcore synths in the uncanny ‘Relentless Fight’, Georgian newcomer Downwell presents ‘Out From Your Pain’, a harsh and EBM/Industrial piece, to leave the French uprising talent Julian Muller take things into the bright side with the trancey synth line and fresh melody of ‘Stigmat’.
Founders PØLI and Lorenzo Raganzini return to represent the imprint after two releases, to deliver the punishing ‘Human Nature’, with relentless kicks, haunting voices and spacey stabs, while Surit brings in 909-like percussions and destroyer leads on ‘Broken Flags’.
‘Thief Of Joy’ from the Greek artist Jerm rounds things up with thumping old school bass, to leave the newcomer Dahlia close proceedings with the emotional, EBM infused ‘Lost In Everett’s Realities’.
Expect high-octane, merciless tones on this hard pounding and raving Techno compilation.
