Featured Guest

Mantis Radio presents Ohm Resistance’s Submerged and End Fence’s arkady with their début recording together as PRCA (POSITIVE REINFORCEMENT CHOICE ARCHITECTURE). Their session has within it the première of their track Schadenfreudautobahn.

Kurt Gluck’s Submerged has been serving up darkside drum n bass since the early 2000s, parallel to his heavyweight Ohm Resistance label. A label that has worked with some of the cream of darker electronics producers including Scorn, Bill Laswell, Imaginary Forces, End.user, Merzbow and The Blood of Heroes. arkady is co-founder of End Fence, the Brooklyn based netlabel which began in 2010. A label who’s aim it is to discover and disseminate timeless, engrossing electronic music. An aim they’ve been doing well at over their 10 releases to date.

We are completing an initial full length of a mostly techno style. Looking at early next year for the album, with a 7″ remixing Scorn + Regis’ classic Marabella Pete Pt. 2 due towards the holidays as the first release from the group.

There’s a philosophy behind the duo’s sound –

“We are all assets”. That is the theme of PRCA – national level foreign policy realpolitik spy missions as voiced through techno music. Real stories from in the field to from behind bars, at all levels of and in service to all kinds institutions. Moscow rules = assume everyone you make contact with to be corrupted.

Their session gives a fantastic insight into what to expect from these two. We can’t wait to get our hands on their album.

Coming up on Ohm Resistance they’ve: Project Zenit’s Eurasian Music Award (EMA) nominated Again. The DEFCE album by Create Her and Shvl Fce – drumcode rhythms in a fierce 160–210 BPM. A Submerged vs Bill Laswell album, from with a track opens up this week’s session mix. And, Zerfallmensch, Submerged’s experimental noise/industrial/damaged electronics improv group with haZMat, a track from which closes the session.
