New sonic impulses…
6 April 2021
Band: VELVET KILLS
Featuring Harris Iveson And Su Eko from Lissabon, Portugal
Who: A modern and urban endeavour, speaking directly to today’s society – with
all its anxieties, addictions, destructiveness as well as exhilaration. You’ll find in their driving beats raw emotion, and a terrific darkness. The sound is complex, almost
abstract – a combination of cinematic textures, gritty guitars, and potent vocals.
Info: Last year the duo released an impressive 6-track record titled Bodhi Labyrinth
with this key message: “Awakening the labyrinth of our minds to be freed from hate, greed
and ego this album brings us to the reality of our actual society.”. Now Velvet Kills shared a
re-imagined version of the original EP with a choice selection of carefully crafted remixes by some of their friends.
Score: Imagine Sisters Of Mercy going techno on Bitch Face, British DJ Goldie joining the party with a jungle vibe injection of Cash And Move, another mix of Bitch Face doing your head in with doomed bass drones and Noise, a speedy pitch-dark wave banger, making your head spin like Linda Blair in The Exorcist. Get the sonic picture? If this is what will blast out of the devil’s speakers on Doomsday you hope that the Apocalypse party is coming
