Moktar - Silk
Tantalising taster from a new artist called Moktar. The Australian-based Egyptian is releasing a five-track EP on 15th of October called Moktar EP via Mall Grab's Steel City Dance Discs label. Punky in attitude as it struts along, the weird Middle Eastern sound, like a wind instrument, that creeps in around 1:30 makes it!Noted, 12 Aug 2021, 17:22

Chorusing - Watching the Beams
US artist Matthew O’Connell goes by the name Chorusing and Watching the Beams is a taster from his forthcoming album Half Mirror, out via Western Vinyl on 13th August. Ghostly dubby vocals float atop a syncopated electronic soundtrack. If the rest of the album is like this, we're onto a good 'un.

King Ugly Delight - National Disaster
The perverse artist name may be tongue-in-cheek (or self-deprecating) and the label name Shite Music For Shite People doesn't soften the grisly effect, but the self-described "abrasive experimental punktronica" is unequivocally bang on. Check out the manic title track from the debut album National Disgrace.

HAAi - Head Above The Parakeets
Fusing an electronic Pop sensibility with madcap drums and treated vocals, the hazy vibe that emerges is like a drug-induced state. Put Your Head Above The Parakeets is the lead track from HAAi’s forthcoming four-track EP, out on 12” and digitally on 11 September 2020.
