Black Dolphin is the debut release from Dim Past, a new techno project from Miami, Florida. Mixed and Mastered by Adames in 3-D VHS studios, this 30-minute, four-song EP is the primogenial transmission from a key player in South Florida’s presently-festering Negative Rave clique. Occult Circuitry (no computers) were utilized exclusively in the composing and recording of this inaugural Black Acid communique.
Dim Past emerges from the self-immolated ruins of extreme and purposefully disfigured rock music. Subsequently, the marshland elec-tropi-cult avatar circumvents traditional beat-oriented soundscapes with a set of tools distinct from those historically employed by classic Techno, House, and Disco. The end result is fresh electronica that comfortably and confidently pairs two of contemporary EDM’s most prominent sub-movements: primal, post-punk, high-contrast headhunter rhythm, and nostalgic-but-forward-looking synthesizer revivalism.
Year One is the debut full-length album from HOLLY HUNT, South Florida’s acclaimed two-piece instru-metal behemoth. Recorded by Jonathan Nuñez (Torche), mixed by Ryan Haft (Capsule) and mastered by Nick Zampiello and Rob Gonnella at New Alliance East, this 39 minute-long, 10-song suite is constructed upon sonic architecture ornate as a royal catacomb and stunningly epic, like an ancient city frozen in time under a heavy sheet of black, hardened lava.
Holly Hunt champions heavy metal’s potential to transcend genre and become a physical experience. Though stripped down to the most bare essentials, the duo’s innate technical chops, strong dialogue, and incredibly deep relationship to their gear produces a sound and style far beyond rudimentary tags like “heavy,” “hard,” or “brutal.”Year One captures the band’s brilliant signatures - the meditative power of repetition; the ecstatic joy of tempered variation; infinitely undulating riffage; psychedelic drone paired with rock n’ roll rhythm - in full splendor.
These records were produced with the support of the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation.
