The next release on Cultivated Electronics Ltd shines a light on some of the fresh talent emerging from within the Electro scene across this double-vinyl 12″ which will be pressed on balck and colour vinyl editions.

IMOGEN has enjoyed a whirlwind rise, and her reputation as one of the most talented newcomers is well recognised. Her discography includes releases on Earwiggle, Shared Meanings and fabric where she is also a resident DJ, and presents a monthly radio show on NTS. She opens the compilation with the tough beats and twisted melodies of ‘Anatta’.

ARMEC (Robbie Mecrow) is an Electro and Acid producer from Manchester who has already impressed with releases on Nebulae, Echocentric, Further Electronix and most notably 20/20 Vision. His beat-led track ‘Acute’ delivers a serious punch with plenty of sub-bass.

Russia’s SERGEY TIMOSHOV is the promoter and resident DJ at Warehouse, held weekly at the Propaganda club in Moscow. Here he utilises that experience in fine style for his club-ready ‘Electro Beats 1’.

UK artists OBZERV and CYPHON collaborated on their debut EP for Gunfinger Food last year, but here they deliver 1 track apiece. Obzerv brings pure destruction on his tumultuous track ‘Octro’. While Cyphon, known for his live hardware sets, supporting artists like Assembler Code, Radioactive Man and Afrodeutsche, plus releases on International Chrome and Blind Allies brings dark phunk to ‘Nightmare’.

KHALILIAN is probably best known as one half of US duo Joonam (with Elon Admony) who have been self-releasing on their Balagan label for the last few years. ‘Valda’ pitches things down with Detroit-esque chords and a deep, subterranean atmosphere.

FAZACK is a 21 year old DJ/Producer from Cardiff now based in Bristol. Better known as a DJ, he’s spent the past 9 year collecting records and garnering inspiration from all aspects of dance music. For the last 3 years he’s focused on production and draws on cosmic influences for his contribution, ‘Weightless’.

LINDSAY GREEN is one half of Co-Accused, long-standing residents of Glasgow’s prolific underground club scene via their club nights in Paisley’s Club 69 and the launch of their Co-Accused Records label in 2021. Going solo for the closing track, ‘Creepin’ bridges to gaps between Electro, Techno and Acid.
