Metempsychosis and its sister label Ways To Die represent Destruction and Construction respectively, which are to be considered as different phases of the same movement. Metempsychosis’ music is deep, dynamic and inspired by creativity and commitment. It represents a positive and forward-looking outlook of the future. Where freedom of thought creates new meaningful conditions. Flaminia’s style is characterised by melancholic melodies and kick drums, obscured by harsh distortion. A shadowy exploration, which goes from a densely deep and experimental ambient, to soulless industrial dark techno. Flaminia’s main focus is on performing an analogue-digital live set, using drum machines, synths and Ableton Live DAW. In 2015 she co-founded the label Ways to Die Records together with End Train and it was here that she started to release her own music. Fast-forward to 2017, Flaminia launches Ways to Die’s sister label, Metempsychosis Records. Where Ways to Die was founded on the principle of destruction, Metempsychosis lays out its philosophy in line with construction. The debut came in the shape of a Various Artists, containing 4 tracks by End Train, Ossa Di Mare, Tapefeed and Flaminia, spanning deep and driving techno, to less refined broken beats.  Tapefeed is Italian duo Alessandro Boni and Rick Vayo. The soundscapes they reproduce evoke a truly raw, deep and almost mesmerising sensation created by the blending of hypnotic ambient tones with techno-tribal percussions, heavy basslines and emotional melodies. Their ever-evolving sound comes as the pinnacle of years of musical research shared by the duo. End Train has been heavily involved in the free parties scene for years, playing 250+ bpm distorted hardcore industrial during timeless sets. Whether he is playing with 4 decks and his sampler or his 2 hour live set with synths and a coffee machine, his music stretches the boundaries of techno with melancholic melodies and fast paced drums. Together with Flaminia he founded Ways to Die Records and Metempsychosis to promote techno in various shapes and form from industrial to deep and broken.
