El Ojo Y La Navaja - Esquizia

El Ojo y la Navaja is a minimal electronics project formed by the musician Erick Arévalo at the beginning of the year 2017 in the State of Mexico.

The project is mainly influenced by the minimal synth and post punk scene of the 80s since that the sound essence of the Project is inspired by the cold and mechanical rhythms made from synthesizers and old and modern rhythm boxes.

The aesthetic of El Ojo y la Navaja is nourished by other artistic manifestations such as cinema and literature since the name of the project is taken from a scene from the classic short film “Un Chien Andaluz” directed by Luis Buñuel and Salvador Dalí.

Instant Lake ‎– Dystodream

After the first studio work, Refractory, Instant Lake returns with a brand new album, Dystodream, which will be released in triple version, Vinyl-Cd-Digital, once again by the Brazilian label Wave-Records. It is the second album for the quartet of southern Italy with the new formation: Gennaro De Lena (vocals and lyrics) Pierluigi Grauso (guitar and theremin), Carlo Landolfi (bass) and Dario Amoroso (synth and programming).

Dystodream is only partially in Instant Lake’s synth-wave/post-punk sound tradition, in songs such as “Ludopatia” and “White Noise”, it also marks the transition to more synthetic and martial sounds, in which the pressing and powerful electronic rhythm of songs like “Black Flag”, “Death to Slavery” and “Trauma” wink at the industrial sound of the origins. Halfway, in a sort of ideal stylistic bridge, there is “Delicate Obscenity”, while in the evocative power of “Tirsch” there are clearly perceptible elements of folk origin. All the musical contaminations of the album Dystodream are a direct artistic expression of the versatility of musical influences and culture of the band as a whole. They wanted to create a final product representing them collectively, merging individual sensitivities. A varied and multifaceted approach to the creative process is also found in the lyrics that investigate a wide range of single and collective emotions. Moreover, some literary references can be clearly recognized.

Dystodream therefore sets itself as a new beginning for the Italian band, but at the same time represents the ideal second stage of a musical way which began with Refractory in the 2017, completing the journey which started with the first two singles + videos: Caustero (2016) and Sit Back (2017). In between the two albums the single + video Death to Slavery was released in February 2019.

eNiB ‎– Cut

Strong colors with shades born from black, passing through purple and into electric blue for a musical experience ranging from coldwave to electro dark, from minimal wave with touches of techno noir and synth wave up to industrial holograms. The artistic experience is not enough to limit the fence in which eNiB moves, a singer since 2013 in the seminal Roman post-punk band of Echoes of Silence.

The opening words are a call-to-arms with those who are not satisfied with everyday life and its contemporary banality. There is much more to discover beyond the fence, there is much more to experience by not being satisfied with the typical malaise of those who suffer the discomfort due to “political correctness”, the clear distinction between black and white, to embrace the comfortable and comfortably insensitive, disturbed flow of life.
