featuring in the EXPERIMENTAL ROOM
Taking perverse pleasure in making “difficult” music, darth fuck records’ crown prince of noise throws down juicy slabs of auditory bliss for the discerning ear. From the coma inducing ambient soundscapes and spastic, brain-churning drum$bass to stomping techno experimentation and tense, free-form minimalism, Heartworm lurks just under the surface of modern electronic music’s bloated corpse. In 2001, Digital Hardcore Reordings Limited released Heartworm’s Bleeding in Circles to critical acclaim as the next step in digital hardcore.
The ever prolific cyberspace legend, Skeeter leaves conventional electronic music in the dust. Helping to establish speedbass as a force that could not be ignored and helping to ressurect the genre as the phoenix that is post-speedbass Skeeter combines spastic and speedy beats with excessive amounts of bass mixed together with post-modern wit and DIY punk attitude, that puts the much needed fun into experimental electronic music.
Born from the mind of Dan Ross as a reaction against the synth EBM pop that was masquerading itself as industrial. Unitus is a return to the ol skool dark and heavy sounds of true industrial. In November, Digital Hardcore Recordings will rerelease Unitus’ Cross Contamination, which has been stirring up a storm in the industrial and rhythmic noize scenes since its release in early 2002.
What would you get if Merzbow ran down contestant’s row on The Price is Right? If Madonna dropped LSD and threw away everything to make underground glitchcore? If Saturday morning cartoons were pre-empted for a broadcast of Evil Dead 2? The result is a abstract blend of topsy-turvy blender-core style, taking sounds from anything and anywhere, and mulching it into a fresh and blissful soundtrack of psychodelic malfunction.
Trauma Tone/Hospital/Self Abuse
It is not possible to describe Flatline Construct’s music in a nice way. As it is exactly the opposite. A sensory assault of harsh beatless noize. With releases on Hospital Productions and a release coming out on the seminal noise label, Self Abuse. Flatline Construct is one of Canada’s leading noizicians.
Pioneer of the speedbient sound and probably the staunchest supporter of intelligent aggressive music.

So people like Laf-O are doomed to obscurity.
Laptop punk Zug Island moulds sound from rust and silicon. Everything from ambient dub to noisey digital electronics & IDM beats.
