#99 | Interview | Death Tape Super Bass (Process-Driven, Experimental Electronic Moodboards)

#98 | Interview | Mans Best Friend (Pensive Harsh Noise Drones)
From his auditory experiments, a keen sense of candidness percolates. And amidst what sounds like unbridled chaos and static froth curdling on the surface, the baritone drones undulating underfoot lull you into a trance-like state.
#95 | Interview | Noxious Insect (Nature-based Harsh Noise Explorations)
Noxious Insect takes a sincerely novel approach to noise production as he channels frequencies we regularly hear whilst walking about nature or shuffling across the asphalt architecture of human design. Beyond this immediate realization, however, Noxious Insect presents us a reflection on the micro-biology us humans typically do not contemplate.
#91 | Interview | Drano Cocktail (Droning, Ambient-Laden Harsh Noise)
Drano Cocktail satiates Ben Campbell’s drive for tinkering with sounds, mood palettes, and morose themes in liberating ways as he does not tether himself to a single noise style or flavor.
