The week’s best new electronic music, plus an interview with LA-based industrial techno don Silent Servant about his turbulent new album.
The calendar may have flipped to December, but plenty of new electronic music continues to slip out into the world. As such, Shawn Reynaldo is here to highlight the best of the bunch, and this week’s episode also includes an exclusive premiere from Marco Passarani (i.e.,\ one half of Tiger & Woods) and his forthcoming solo album on Vladimir Ivkovic’s Offen Music label. Also joining the program is Silent Servant, one of the most prominent figures in techno’s ongoing fascination with industrial, EBM and post-punk sounds. The former Sandwell District member has gone through quite the whirlwind – both personally and professionally – in recent years, and here he speaks frankly about how that chaos has been channeled into his latest album for Hospital Productions, Shadows of Death and Desire.
