The Spanish Disaster of Independent Electronic Music

The Spanish Disaster of Independent Electronic Music by Julio Gutiérrez (Nühn)

In Spain, to be honest, it is hard to find excellent independent musicians (composers) in electronic music. It’s true that in other music cultures, like jazz, rock, blues, etc., we have some outstanding musicians. But if we talk and refer to (only) in electronic music, it is a colossal disaster.

Music is my Life

by Vugatti Beyron

Music is my Life by Vugatti Beyron

Born and bred in Bristol, UK, I have always been surrounded by music. My father is a guitarist and always listens to Iron Maiden and Black Sabbath. My mother is not a musician, but she always listens to AC/DC and Billy Idol. At age 8, I started playing guitar. I am now 19 and have made guitar my main instrument, but I can also play drums. Last year, however, my musical journey nearly ended.

Blame It On My Ancestry

by El Valerie

Blame It On My Ancestry by El Valerie
I know I’m supposed to promote myself, but before I do that, let me break down why my latest project is bigger than me.

So. I am born, raised, and artistically based in Queens, New York City, USA. The borough of Queens as a standalone city would be the single most diverse place in the world; something like 200 languages are spoken here. In high school, I knew this girl who spoke English, Spanish, and a specific dialect of her family’s motherland (I forget which specific country it was – sorry mija). And it gets way more diverse than that around here.

The storm is coming, and it never really left.

The storm is coming, and it never really left. by Noamle
Sometimes I wonder if I like making people cringe or maybe it’s just an inevitable effect that comes with my need to overexpress my emotions and thoughts. I always thought oh well maybe I’m one of those who are seeking desperately for attention, but I figured that actually, it is more than just that. I just can’t control it, saying the things the way they are, if I hate my self, I’m gonna write about it if I’m ego tripping I’m gonna write about that as well. A bit of a drama queen mixed with a trouble maker with an honest desire to be better and be happy. And make the people around me happy, mostly with me.

To take my thoughts and put them into words helps me reach into conclusions, let my mind process, and move on faster. And I’m guessing doing it out loud for other people to hear is part of it. I’ve always appreciated artists that are being totally authentic, that are not afraid to write about themselves and their quirkiness and be honest. Let me, the listener, to get to know them better.

So, I’m gonna let u know me better as well.

Even if it doesn’t pay… Even if not many people take interest

Even if it doesn't pay... Even if not many people take interest by R L Armstrong aka Loading...Mad Spells

“Hey, mom where is my bass and guitar?”

“I took them to grandma’s; you’ve been playing way too much.”

This is how I woke up one day in grade 11 because I wasn’t doing much of anything other than making up random melodies and recording them on a tape player. I loved the fact that I was in control of making these things up and that they were not being graded or picked apart by a teacher or whatever…

Music, Good For The Brain

by Limbic

Music, Good For The Brain by Limbic
Hi we’re Limbic, yes we’re named after the limbic system in your brain. The limbic system processes your emotions and memories, two things we believe music heavily influences.

Coming from the north-east of England we found ourselves in a local gigging scene oversaturated with your stereotypical indie bands, a cliché we never wanted to find ourselves landing in. Looking for an original sound to our area we created Limbic. An alt-experimental band that utilises synth to create a balance between your traditional indie band and the whacky world of synth sounds.

Anorkia interviewed by Louise Claxton
It was fun for me doing an interview again after all these years and discussing Anorkia, which is a project that’s very deeply ingrained in my heart. Dirk and I will do our best to begin a new chapter in Anorkia’s life at a future time. Anyone who reads these words, please know that you are loved, and I hope you create a beautiful day.

Digital Queer Aesthetics

by Ava (Hegemonix)

Digital Queer Aesthetics by Ava (Hegemonix)
My name is Ava and Ben, I use they/them pronouns, and I make music as Hegemonix. I’ve recently been exploring online queer aesthetics via electronic music and music videos. I’ve been using digital instruments and my physical body to communicate my exploration of having a non-binary gender identity. I’m interested in using the “precise” robotic language of electronic music combined with the uncertainty of the voice and body to explore what it means to be human in today’s digital world.
