The Minimal Wave founder draws a selection of ice-cold machine tracks. Recorded live in Barcelona.

New York native Veronica Vasicka has unearthed countless analog synth gems, single-handedly reviving a forgotten subgenre with Minimal Wave Records, the label she founded in 2005. And with Minimal Wave subsidiary Cititrax, a new generation of like-minded composers have found a home for their own DIY releases. Vasicka’s influential style was partly cultivated via online station East Village Radio, where she was the station’s first program director, and her reputation was cemented with the release of the compilation The Minimal Wave Tapes, Volume One, released on Stones Throw in 2010. Ever since, she’s spread the word of this incredible sound to audiences worldwide via releases on her vaunted labels and through her DJ sets.
