Various Vegetables Radio #63 | 303 Clone Wars

Once upon a time in a distant galaxy called the 90s, a group of young rebels fought against the reign of Stanza-Refrain-Bridge to practice the forbidden practices of Acid. Nearly thirty light years later, methods long believed to blossom flourish again on planets such as Acid Waxa, Midievil, Mechatronica, Central.Processing.Unit. and Vortex Traks. We have set out on a Journey to give these Brotherhoods a voice. May the Acid be with you!

Vertical67 | Friction EP

Veglord Vertical pleases us with yet another Funky Acid Gem on Mechatronica!

"Vertical67 presents a set of funky, acidic electro grinders on the Friction EP. A longtime figure in the Berlin underground and frequent live act at Mechatronica's club nights over the past 5 years, Vertical67 fuses inspiration from IDM, electro, acid, breaks and jungle into a pressure cooker of an EP, with enough friction to move the mind and the floor."

Oxvac “Partials” | on Pr0gramma Records

As part of the American electronic music collective Pr0gramma Oxvac has been releasing his music since about 2015.

On his latest release "Partials" he clearly demonstrates references to abstract rhythm constructs as they were cited by greats like Autechre in the Warp era . However, he neither tries to make himself comfortable in homage nor in practising some kind of beatmashing-competition but adds a very personal coloring. Which, in its warmth, happily stands out from the cold, mathematical IDM sound. The warm analog origin of the modular system responsible for most of the synth sequences is clearly audible and the background noise that accompanies us throughout the whole album sets itself like a little piece of meadow under the tracks so that the organic melodies may writhe on it. The beat structures also seem to hover between complex patterns and a wide-breathing 4/4 bass drum.

So yet again another happy accident to find such beautiful electronic music from the U.S. of A. From this side of the Atlantic's perspective I can  just say it's nice that you're no longer necessarily get overpowered by EDM-Metal-Dubstep, but can also lift the actual treasures (which have always been there!). At least on platforms like Bandcamp and Co.

Various Vegetables Radio #60 | Axiom Guest Mix

This time we have a special show lined up: a guest mix from Berlin’s Axiom – cofounder of Crazy Language netlabel and event organiser in Berlin. Most recently he’s been organising events with the Skizze collective focused on experimental electronic music for the dance floor. This epic four hour set is a sound desk recording from the Freqs of Nature Festival from last July, 2017 and features an expertly-curated pick of IDM, glitch and experimental electronica. Lay back and let Axiom take you on a journey guided by some kind of crazy language.

Various Vegetables Radio #59 | MSH3005 Label Special

Yes! It‘s the first show in 2018. Yes! We just left behind a pretty bad year for all of us. And yes, we don‘t care at all. We rather intent to go on serving you rock solid tunes. This time with a little Bandcamp round up.

For this purpose we‘d like to take a closer ear to MSH3005 Records. A little Underground Techno, Ambient and IDM Label from Portland, Oregon. During the last year they managed to bring up a pretty impressive little catalouge of Tape and CD Releases. And after we just recently reviewed one of their EP‘s on our Website, they gave us the opportunity to check out their output from last year.
