Ontal live at Exit festival 2012
It’s 5:30AM July 13th and following 90 minutes of deep and dub infected techno courtesy of Sigha, local duo ONTAL step up to close the HappyNovisad Stage at this years EXIT festival. I bet the crowd didn’t know what him ’em.
ONTAL are Serbia’s Darko Dekode (a mighty fine selector) and Boris Noiz (Noiz who we are on a massive tip at the moment, what with his stunning live set for Mantis a few weeks back and samples of his forthcoming EP for Yellow Machines).
What follows is a blisteringly dark electronics powerhouse of sound. Touching on power noise, the darkest claustrophobic techno, lashings of industrial grind, and abstract glitch texture. All built to command supreme control of your mind. Apocalyptic bleak. Not for the fainthearted then.
The duo’s debut EP should be due out later this year.
