“Zhark Recording‘s hard-line revisionist doctrine holds no hostages- rejecting the myopic conventions of the electronic (club?) medium with its caustic amalgam of minimalist electroid-components savagely dismantled into an extrem free-fire zone of depravity.” Opening the label night is Teste: his output defines a profound isolationism, in stark contrast to the techno productions of it’s generation. Initiating bold and futuristic sonik leanings and abstract sound design within Techno’s monumental Second wave. The project name Teste is a reference to “T.A.G.C.’s Meontological Recordings – Record 2: Teste Tones” – a psychoacoustic recording exploring auditory ritualism. From Manchester UK, Casual Violence is explorations in ritualistic electronics, with nods in many directions including industrial, drone, experimental and techno. Kareem, Founder of Zhark Recordings Berlin, has been presenting heavy armoured track material since the year 96, challenging the auditory, pushing them deep into the abyss. His definition of the Zharkesthetic lies in conveying a claustrophobic state > an atmosphere of threatening sound architecture. Stärker is a duo of Canadians Frederic Arbour (Cyclic Law Records / Visions) and Martin Dumais (AUN / ex. Les Jardiniers). Their sound is an exploration of pulsating frequencies, brooding atmospherics supported by strong techno / industrial rhythms.
