The solid electro label CULTIVATED ELECTRONICS is back to its roots by releasing a new series of compilations entitled « World Electronix ». For reminder in 2007, the first one releases were a series of 3 vinyls introducing CULTIVATED ELECTRONICS as a very promising imprint. And since its beginning this UK-based label has succeeded in maintaining a such quality every time on Vinyl. The 4-tracks EP « World Electronix Volume 1 » has just been released and features some main creative minds from Electro scene. The first tune signed by the talented SILICON SCALLY is an amazing abstract Hi-tek production dedicated to dystopia lovers. The Madrid-Based producer BORIS DIVIDER provides his classic Sci-Fi signature on a track well-produced as its usual. Then, there is a new collaboration between SYNC24 & DEIXIS (both respectively running CULTIVATED ELECTRONICS & ABSTRACT FORMS label). That’s certainly the good surprise on this EP sounding like a promosing connection. On the last cut, the duo MORPHOLOGY produced a dynamic & very catchy track including some riffs sampled straight up from DOPPLEREFFEKT’s production. Therefore that track should talk to a specific nostalgic audience. In conclusion, this entire 1st installment of the series is hot, diffusing Electro music in its pure classic weird forms. Recommended!
