Listen To Two New Releases From NZ Dark Electronic Imprint Skaventhrone

Listen To Two New Releases From NZ Dark Electronic Imprint Skaventhrone

C.C. / Tuesday 1st October, 2019 3:01PM

From their home base in Tāmaki Makaurau, Skaventhrone have been hard at work releasing and promoting crucial subterranean sounds from Aotearoa and around the globe, unearthing previously unheard worlds of dark electronic music, black metal, dungeon synth, hip hop, noise, industrial and ambient. The productive independent imprint and magazine recently dropped a compelling pair of collections – the debut EP from Auckland electronic producer Morgan Harvester and a conceptually-driven compilation of international dungeon synth artists titled Dungeons In the Void.

With cover art depicting a pixelated silhouette of Auckland city (complete with Sky Tower), Morgan Harvester's five track Digitalis EP evokes futuristic doomed megalopolises via the ex-Undiscovered Moons Of Saturn member's pulsing lo-tech beat-scapes, at times recalling the menacingly playful sonics of Clive Smith and Brenda Hutchinson's soundtrack to Liquid Sky.

Described as a "compilation of cosmic ambient and dungeon synth from distant worlds" Dungeons In the Void invites listeners to explore a ten track collection of darkness-dwelling, stargazing sonics created by producers from across the planet. Organised around a challenge-type structure, featured artists let their imaginations roam within musical guidelines set out by other contributors ("expression, key, theme"), with info on each track being expanded upon in a magazine which comes with Dungeons In the Void (which also features bios on each artist).

There's lots more to look forward to from Skaventhrone – they've just revealed details on an upcoming EP from Auckland-based dark ambient artist Ardens Rejectio, and are now releasing works by Norwegian dungeon synth pioneer Mortiis. Open your ears to Morgan Harvester's Digitalis and the Dungeons In the Void compilation below...

Both above releases are available digitally and on limited edition cassette, for ordering information and to keep up to date with Skaventhrone's releases, head over to their Bandcamp page.
