There is something in the air. It is some kind of toxic fumes? Is it diesel exhaust? No, it's love that is in the air. To celebrate Valentine's Day there is a new compilation out from Brutal Resonance. You get 22 tracks of industrial and related genres.
Here is something interesting. Flash Beach is a band from Germany making what I would describe as a form of digital hardcore, but not as hysterical as Atari Teenage Riot. Some tracks are even on the mellow side.
This compilation came out back in August 2017, but I haven't gotten around to write about it until now. As the name hints it's focused on industrial music, but it also touches on various related genres.
Another compilation of music from Balkan from Black Planet Records hits the net. Not much balkan beats here, but you get a compilation of very different tracks.The problem with the spread is that it's almost binary. About half of the tracks is mainstream pop, trance, hip-hop et.c. Not very underground there. The other half is noise, strange ambient and generally far out in artsy avant-garde music. But there are also a few tracks that may make it worth a download.
