EL CHAPO [PVRPLE]
"Blk.Adonis is a project without precedent, incorporating the minimalist drum programming and no-nonsense rhythmic strength of hardcore dancehall with ethereal soundscapes, demonic whispers, and distorted, industrial sounds. Despite the sparse, abrasive quality of the Blk.Adonis aesthetic, he has managed to create not just club bangers but complex, subtle explorations of textures, emotional moments, and microscopic sounds in which listeners can find new intricacies with every listen.”
ULTRATUMBA [Picó PIcante]
Ethan Kiermaier is Ultratumba. Based out of Boston and coastal Maine, he is a miner of post everything global dance mayhem. The polyamorous marriage of an airhorn, a sitar, an 808 and Alan Lomax daggering with Diamanda Galas in a dirt floored basement.
