Ramon Mills (previously interviewed on Hypnos Audio) told me to check out the Portland-based electronic musician Dan Pisarcik who records as Occurian.

In a rare move I immediately purchased the vinyl of his recently-released Occurian EP titled […]

Panther Modern

I first heard of Brady Keehn when he was in the band Sextile. My friends in the darkwave/postpunk scene raved about his artistry.

Over the 2017 holiday I reached out to Richard Bailey (aka Proem), probably the most important figure at the center of/origin of the American IDM (Intelligence Dance Music) movement. Spawned out of early releases on n5md and Merck Records in the late 1990s and early 2000s, Mr. Bailey has pushed electronic boundaries and inspired countless […]

Terhune, aka Cathode Ray Tube – abbreviated as CRT – is an incredibly talented and dedicated artist from the Northeast United States, who has produced volumes of wonderful electronic material on a variety of labels.
