For having held this SILICON SCALLY‘s vinyl, I can say this cover created by DESIGN PRIMITIVE is awesome. I easily spent half an hour to watch all the items (Click on the pix for a bigger size). This graphic design with few color and no gradation representing alright the 00’s vectorial design made via the software ‘Illustrator’. Create an identity for Electronic music is not a easy thing, most of the time the picture is a simple & static photography or a caricatural icon slowing down a kind of personal escapism. Therefore the covers are often under the powerful level of abstraction of the music. Actually, the process of creation of this cover album entitled ‘Bioroid‘ seems pretty close to the concept of robotic music. Indeed, we can see these infinite loops repeated building an hybrid & cold framework.

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!
