Grapes & Snakes sees Wolf Eyes member Aaron Dilloway and Due Process's Jason Lescaleet collaborate for the first time. Utilising only analogue synths and tape manipulation, they explore a world beneath the industrial, primal energies recreated in pure sonic form, but despite its obvious nods to the genre, Grapes & Snakes chooses to forgo pummelling noise for patience and delicacy.
Greek mythology inspires Dadub's return to the EP format with this new three track release for regular stable Stroboscopic Artefacts. Ploughing a similar thematic path to Daniele Antezza and Giovanni Conti's debut album You Are Eternity, this new release looks to the ancient Greek goddess (of the harvest) Demeter for inspiration. "Kykeon", Dadub's four-way collaboration with Retina.it, is an EP highlight, making full usage of the handmade modular synth systems crafted by the Retina.it pairing of Nicola Buono and Lino Monaco. Complementing this, Dadub's "Mistresses March" is a near 12-minute foray through scraping textures and plummeting grooves made truly memorable by Dadub's well honed skill for sound design, whilst they also collaborate with Dromoscope artist Grun on the incandescent "Ergot Kernel".
