It’s almost the last Bandcamp Friday of 2020, and maybe it’s the last Bandcamp Friday ever, so I decided to make a list of great music I got in 2020 and list it here. The post turned out to be rather big, so I split it up into several posts by genre (sort of) because y’all don’t like reading long posts anyway.
So here’s post number one, and it’s all about hard techno and industrial style beats. Don’t forget to stuff them in your Bandcamp wishlist!
I was looking for the Man Made Evil TOA remix when I ran into Dither’s full album The Architect on Bandcamp. This is a banger of an album if you like your beats on the industrial side of techno. It’s not just a collection of tracks, but it really is worth the name album, as it takes you through a musical landscape from beginning to end. Well-balanced and full of good tunes.
Foreign Objects by Strange Arrival is another hard industrial release I like a lot. Fits in nicely with things from TOA and PRSPCT.
Helios Is Dead by Mutagenesis is a great dark techno/industrial album if you’re in for something a bit different. It’s atmospheric, noisy and industrial sounding. I’m not sure what genre this is exactly. Doomcore? Darkcore? Who cares, it goes boom boom boom and it sounds great.
PRSPCTXTRM 019 by Fracture 4, more top-notch banging industrial. This is an older release, but because of Bandcamp Fridays I went through the PRSPCT back catalog and dug up this gem. Fracture 4 never disappoints!
More beats tomorrow, so stay tuned.
