We first came across Finnish mad-man and chiptune-eccentric Aku Raski aka Huoratron when we stumbled over this sick video art back in 2008. It hit us like a ton of bricks and bought to mind the heavy bass music, we were all listening to in Berlin during the naughty nineties. Human Resource anyone?
Last year his “Corporate Occult” NSFW-video made quite a buzz on the interweb and so it proved that Aku is a real master of using Game Boy consoles to produce some sick, experimental and dark electro. Now Huoratron (pronounced whore-a-tron) makes a strike with his next track called ‘Cryptocracy’ and it serves as an appetizer for his full-length that will see a release in 2012 on Last Gang Records. If you’ve got an ounce of love for techno, you’ll find a fresh input from Huoratron. Check the new free track below:
Unicorn Kid has clearly been spending a lot of time on tumblr lately. The Edingurgh 8bit wunderkind’s new EP is steeped in the youth lore of the Now: yin-yangs, tie-dye, smilies, and an urge to submerge in tropicult waves of rave. We highly approve. The EP, appropriately dubbed Tidal Rave, has been steadily released on the Kid’s website; we’re especially loving the final cut ‘True Love Fantasy’, featuring Texas’ queen of bleep Talk To Animals. Want More? The greedy get rewarded: he also dropped a fantastic mini-mix called Coral Reefer over the weekend. We’re sunsoaked and teentanned over here; come hit the beach with us.
