Shifting rhythms and pulsing tectonics from ROHS! headquarters
Live From Unknown is the 3rd album from Sardinian born musician Andrea Porcu.

Built with analog gear, the sound is emotive and expansive. Not easy to slot into one style or another, it's a true example of dub laden techno music.

The Wire Magazine (review):
Andrea Porcu Live From Unknown PDXINDUBTING! DL/MC Little is known about Andrea Porcu, whose aliases include No Politics and Whacky, other than he is Sardinian born, currently based in Berlin and, since late 2007, has been running an under the radar label via Bandcamp called ROHS!. The music it has released in all formats falls mainly in a deep dubtech vein. Best known artists in the roster are Xoki & Hieronymus, who were recently on ZamZam Records out of Oregon. Another figure worth investigating is Desove – Polish musician Pawel Granacky – for his Cruising album from last year. The prevailing sounds on the label are related to but much less beat-laden than Chain Reaction. Ambient washes are prevalent and percussion sounds more muffled; but this new one from Andrea Porcu himself is much more reggae dub centred, and it perhaps best relates to some of the shorter, more focussed outings of Stephen Hitchell in his Intrusion guise, it’s that impressive. “Roll Haze” even sounds whimsically jump up, with a repeated sax line intervention quoting “Get Up, Stand Up”. But the moodiest track is “Leaving Chichibabin”. Carrying a clear dread sound, it’s really in need of a deep cut direct to vinyl.

      A vertiable cornucopia of electronics from ambient through breaks to techno - and more. Recommended.

      Warmed up the tubes, switched on the RE-201. Vermona DSR-3 was in good health. Reharmonised the track a bit
      Dubbed out dance

      Hi all! Our new album is out! It's post-...something, dubby, distorted and weird. One track got tons of terrestrial airplay; another seems to be getting picked up by a bunch of blogs. One guy I know says some of it sounds like Tool, but I don't hear that myself.
      It's grubby and strange and full of cool drumming and custom DSP code and modular gear used as a *conventional instrument*. We recorded the whole thing in a day. I hope you like it! Cheers.

      Background:
      SPECTRAL GATES is a collaboration between Steve Allison & Daniel Arena (who also perform individually as Scruffamudda and Daniel Arena's Musical Entertainment Cube). The duo create energetic, ethereal and apocalyptic electronic beats, dub and post-rock.

      In late 2019, after a seven year break from playing together in bands, they went into a hacked-together DIY studio space for a day and came out with the bones of a self-titled album, scheduled for release on streaming services and Bandcamp March 31:

      "I'd just finished getting my recording rig sorted out again following some sessions for other bands, and it felt silly to pack it all away again in storage without doing some more tracking. Somehow this led to a one-day unplanned recording in a rehearsal room with me and Steve Allison - nothing written in advance, the very slightest amount of prep (most of which we discarded), and a terrifying mountain of instruments and equipment. Just, like, three of everything. Loopers and synths and mess. Angry homemade digital. I think I had ten different ways to make a guitar sound more distorted ready to patch in.

      Going in I wanted to capture some of the sheer exhilaration of making a terrible racket with friends. There's nothing like letting a guitar just feedback, barely under control. The air takes on mass and menace. Infamous noise pioneer Lucas Abela joked in an interview about one of his public installations that experimental music is a lot more fun to make than to listen to, and I was expecting this would go the same way. Maybe we'd capture a bit of that.

      What I hadn't counted on was that Steve and I would find something musically coherent from the first seconds of recording, and we kept gravitating back towards sanity in the sessions. The literal first thing we recorded survived through as track one on the album - this big, dubby, distorted thing that just rolls and flows and makes sense, and most of the album grew out of this apocalyptic cloud of electronic tension.

      Three minutes into a totally improvised piece that's working, you get this terror, you have to figure how to land this crazy machine before the wings fall off. We got a few good landings on tape."
