“Sound Explorer”: Christos Doukakis
Quick pitch: Oklahoma City artist Basileus Rex’s ‘Love Letter to Disco’ is a shamelles electro-industrial dance treat, which gradually builds up, sampling melodies/rhythms from a few famous disco songs… Dance of the mutants!
(avant-pop, experimental electronic)
Quick pitch: Clyde Crooks’ ‘Fill’ is a spotless avant-pop treasure with adventurous, experimental electronic soundscapes, idea for Beyond Boundaries’ aficionados!
Bright Young Future & Tettix Hexer
(indie electro, idm, experimental electronic)
Quick pitch: Bright Young Future’s & Tettix Hexer’s collaborative single is a stunning, highly energetic, indie electro treasure with idm and experimental electronic elements, released via the newly founded, Danish indie label Pink Cotton Candy…
Visceral Design x TakT
(afrobeats, indie electro)
Quick pitch: Another great collaborative single, is the genre-bending ‘Envy’ by Visceral Design & TakT, an addictive blend of afrobeast with indie electro that will make you shake your body to its seductive rhythm!
(ambient, synthwave, progressive rock)
Quick pitch: An epic 12-minute homage to the legendary Klaus Schulze by the Chilean outfit Morus… Sci-fi explorations!
(hyperpop, trap metal, horrorcore)
Quick pitch: Los Angeles punks Beach Bums recently shared their chaotic single entitled ‘IDGAF’, taken off their forthcoming album, ‘Overcast,’ out August 16 via Lolipop Records. Unique stuff!

(post industrial, idm, glitch)
Quick pitch: The post-industrial soundtrack for a dystopian future taken from Tomorrow’s Child’s forthcoming debut album ‘Beach Ghosts’, due out later this year. Monolithic deconstruction beats, bleak soundscapes, accompanied by a video “which contains footage of Pendeen in Cornwall captured in October 2019 on the 100th anniversary of the Levant mine disaster, which claimed the lives of 31 miners”…Not for the faint-hearted!
Quick pitch: New Zealand ex-engineer and game composer, xolve’s 11-minute, drone, noise opus, whose title is a protest against the atrocities being done in XinJiang by the Chinese government…. Hold your breath and enter at your own risk!
