From Northern Italy, While On Our Way To Social Collapse is the second release from Haunter Records, a new DIY label based in Milan, Italy. Its purpose is to document the sound of what’s currently haunting Italy. The featured tracks have been produced by a bunch of young up and coming artists, all of them based in northern Italy and sharing the same radical mindset with dark, tribal overtones and a post-modern sense of critical aesthetics. Haunter’s mission is to give those artists a voice and provide with a context where these italian-born soundmakers can estabilish themselves in conversation with the whole european electronic scene.
We are experiencing a state of utter rage and deep frustration, and the music we make can not avoid portraiting the motionless, suffocating environment we’ve found ourselves in. Our response is a strong repurposing of the dark energies we’re being fed, in the hope of channeling the chaos to productive. We’re set to utilize the most revolutionary lessons of modern electronics to shape our own form of pop music, embracing the input overload of contemporary culture into a new form of growth.
Each of the artists has its own sound, from the astral meditation of Morkeblå to the gloomy ritualism of Heith & Petit Singe, the “distant rave” sound of Cage Suburbia, the abysmal groove of Opal Tapes-alumnus OOBE, the terrorist assault of Sense Fracture and the cavernous dub-techno of Nubilim.
The compilation will be out November 28 on C40 Tapes, limited to 100 copies.
