The mighty Italo Moderni, Spanish imprint curated by Adrian Marth (SXDNS188), presents “Modernation Vol. 4”, (unfortunately) the last episode of its acclaimed compilation series. The closing chapter comes dressed to impress by featuring a great selection of hot-shot acts of the so-called Indie Dance/Dark Disco scene: Timothy J. Fairplay, Alessandro Adriani, Chino, Chupacabras, Leroy Se Meurt, Univac, Le Chocolat Noir, Rapha, E-Bony, Diana Berti, Yobkiss, LBEEZE, and the label boss himself brought AAA+ retro-modern-infused cuts for the high-style finale.
The track we were solicited to review/premiere comes from the mastermind of Chupacabras. The UK-based producer, with previous appearances on Throne Of Blood, Distrokids, and L.I.E.S. Records, to name a few, strikes hard with the impressive “Planning Stages”, an Electro-meets-EBM-meets-Industrial ferocious beast with a powerful and frenzied atmosphere and a shut-up-and-dance attitude – it’s definitely one of the highlights of the release.
You can find (and buy) this and other music pearls on the Bandcamp page of the label.
