The technoburlesque show Image Snatchers is a series of constantly changing and evolving episodes, now already in its sixth season. It is a modern take on burlesque, packed with witty feminist-inspired campy and queer humour and often critically commenting on the current socio-political landscapes and events both locally and beyond. The numbers enact actual political figures, like Angela Merkel, Melania Trump, and the local culture minister on one hand, or more general but psychologically detailed roles on the other, such as a chauvinist macho, a slow-walking grandma, or an android with a drinking problem. The music is sometimes used as a ready-made and an important reference to specific past era, scene or its vibe. Lip-syncing makes an appearance too and so do electronic bootleg edits or remix tracks. Popular songs are sung live, sometimes with lyrics changed to various degrees, whereas at other times completely original music is made by the collective. Different languages have so far been used – besides Slovenian and English obviously, we had lyrics sung in Portuguese, French, Chinese, Italian, German, and Serbo-Croatian in one way or another.
Out of the three tracks on the so called mainside part of this EP, two of them are rapped in Slovenian. “Vrtnice” (Roses) is a poetic but outspoken take on dismissive attitudes towards artists in contemporary politics and public life in general. It says that artists (“we are the culture squad”) are needed in a society to make everyone feel the life in colours, with a present mind and heart, for “roses” are needed as much as bread. “Dnevnik” (Daily news) features a bunch of performers-turned-MCs, sarcastically and critically touching upon various aspects of daily life: abortion, immigration, consumerism, capitalism, and mental health among others. In the refrain, it features a French-Portuguese performer in the role of an immigrant trying to sing widely known Slovene nursery rhymes while threatening with stereotypical threats attributed to immigrants: stealing jobs, kidnapping wives, and corrupting children.
Collaboration EP between our staff member ps and the German project OKAM. Four tracks of a journey through time and space. Dark ambient cinematic sounds riddled with field recordings and influences from shoegaze and breakcore.
Mahamboro adalah salah satu dari sekian banyak musisi dengan talenta yang menakjubkan. Menguasai beberapa alat musik sekaligus mengendalikan sendiri home recordingnya. Proyeknya kali ini berjudul Surup, yang menurutnya diistilahkan sebagai Trance Techno. Sebuah track yang cukup menarik dan membius. Terinspirasi dari kegiatan berkesenian merayakan hari kemerdekaan di kampung halamannya Magelang, ketika tari tarian tradisional membius penari dan para penonton. Kesurupan menjadi ritus yang biasa disaksikan. Musik yang disajikan Mahamboro sedikit banyak menggambarkan nuansa ketukan ritmis yang dengan hawa techno yang cukup menghipnotis. Track ini dirilis untuk ikut mendukung dan merayakan Indonesia Netaudio Festival 3.0. Selamat mendengarkan

Eraserhat (David Lynch Tribute, Bonus Track)
Following on from his slow burning self-released cassette “Unweather”, “lutra” is the first CD release by smallhaus (AKA South London based guitarist, electronicist, percussionist David Little). It expands his singular sound environment into a full-screen, full-colour and hugely enjoyable collection.
At times this almost feels like a tribute to the classic sounds of 70’s ambient – the choral textures, the infinite guitars, the synthesizers, but it’s done with a knowing wink and a contemporary layer of grit and dust. But mostly it’s an enveloping, immersive wash of precision moulded sound.

Max Bober is a musician born in the windy south of Argentina, near Atlantic ocean and the Andes mountains. He studied violin, composition, philosophy and other interesting things in Buenos Aires. He is interested in experimenting with the ideas of silence, space, and resonance. Since 2017 he is living, studying and composing in Warsaw, Poland. When he is not thinking about music, or writing, or working, he likes to walk near the river and drink wine watching to the sunset.
TERR104: The drums-and-bass duo Giant Gutter From Outer Space are back here to tell what’s what with a 6-track ball of fire inspired by suppressed traumas of those affected by the authoritarianism and brutalities committed by the Brazilian State – particularly in the 60’s-80’s.
Recorded in late 2017, the duo broaden their pioneering sound with bits from modular synthesizer territory, courtesy of Curitiba black metal artist Nahtaivel. “Charred Memories” is presented on Terranean Recordings with an exclusive battered mix and graphic design by Luke Lund.
This is a co-release between Sinewave, HNM and MuteAnt Sounds. The original mix is available from them.
Celebrating our 20th release, we are proud to present this small masterpiece, the dirty and experimental “BAIXA QUALIDADE V. 2” (translating to Low Quality v. 2) from eletronic and hip-hop producer _isca_ ;
The project plays as a sonic fusion, throwing in vaporwave, chiptune, boom-bap – all with their respective distortions and deconstructions with amazing rhythmic quality.
An alien album, with features heche, fox, mestre chapeleiro and willy black — “Baixa Qualidade v. 2” defies the idea of a beat tape, playing with its clichés and resignifying them, with an unique personality and identity that brings us to the most different moments in the producer’s life, from his childhood to his adultship..
The music of oculoss is mainly of an atmospheric nature. Sometimes less is more, making his music ideal for listening while working, sleeping or doing other things.
In “Parallel Path” oculoss explores texture, consistency, and a type of variety that could be called subtle. This is not the utopian ambient of the typical soundscape artist. This EP is serious music for serious people.
Oakland based producer Angel Rubio-Hale aka ONHELL returns with his latest effort Linden. Composed over the course of the past two years, these four tracks capture the essence of his experiences living and making music in Oakland.
The unifying theme on the release is about enjoying life and each track is ultimately inspired by making the most of being alive by exploring the different facets of our existence. A prime example is the track “HIV+” created while contemplating his mortality upon receiving a false positive result from an HIV test. Linden successfully conjoins where ONHELL has been musically while also providing a glimpse of where he’s going. It’s this merging of his past with his future right here in the present that makes listening to this EP so exhilarating.
The first release in 2018 came from Denmark. Jonas Reif provided us
three track EP. Svimmel (means dizzy): “I wanted this track to express shifting emotions, I also wanted to blend different signature elements of genres
such as acid, DnB, Breakbeat”. Faser (means phases): A movement through different states of mind. Flerform (means multiple forms): “I was inspired by 80’s aesthetics and
old skool funk, which I wanted to put in the context of acid/IDM”.
We are so happy to release ‘Noise Band in My Garden‘ by Dako Loop Orchestra and Lezet.
Lezet introduces a true music hero, the inimitable Darko Jovanovic, to the Etched Traumas community, by means of a split/collab “why the dance rhythm? l definitely live in the loop, and I do things the way I should.”
“For some years now, the Córdoban producer Martín Castro, aka MRTN-CSTR, has been surprising us with his creations, ever since releasing his debut album “Kr0m” through Pueblo Nuevo in 2014. This time he presents “((- -SEKU -_- EKU- -))“, an album comprising 7 tracks with an aesthetic he has developed through “patches”, which he designs himself for the software “Reaktor” from “Native Instrument.” These allows him to create an idiosyncratic style, with industrial sounds, granular trips, and glitches, as he develops a penetrating IDM with intense and sometimes devastating environments that make us think for a few minutes that we are in an empty and abandoned city, where only robots live and humans are extinct.
With a sound marked by broken and changing percussion, approaching that of new-acid, “((- -SEKU -_- EKU- -))“, produced by one of the most talented current musicians in Argentine electronics, is a highly recommended album.”
