UNSOUND PODCAST #10 - Kreng presents Main Titles

The wonderful Miasmah artist Kreng was asked by Unsound to make a podcast tying into our 2010 "Horror - the pleasure of fear and unease" theme. He created a unique mix, with music taken from a wide array of horror and sci fi soundtracks, described here in his own words: "This turned out to be a vicious slow burner, calm and slow in the beginning but gradually evolving into a hideous monster." Please note that this is not representative of what Kreng will do with the Belgian theatre group Abattoir Fermé at Unsound Krakow, with whom he will perform - will be some interesting surprises there, for sure.

Listen to this podcast in the dark, alone, with a full bucket of popcorn.

UNSOUND PODCAST #09 - Pavel Ambiont's Belarus on the Air

Here's a unique mix by the Belarus producer Pavel Ambiont, who performed at the last Unsound Krakow and Unsound Festival New York. Pavel is also known for his work with Pinch, included on the "Connections" CD. Asked to deliver an podcast, Pavel selflessly decided instead to showcase a range of Belarus producers, not only himself, in order to throw a light on this overlooked region of Eastern Europe. As the mix shows, the local electronic music scene is developing steadily, with the likes of i/dex, Parametric, Santych and Pavel himself moving here fluidly between dub techno, ambient pieces and much more. Enjoy. And please head to soundcloud for a full track listing.
