Welcome to Ohm Resistance...
IMAGINARY FORCES : Uppstigande OUT NOW!!
The furthest-out points on the Ohm Resistance map are charted by London’s Imaginary Forces. Following up last year’s nightmarish “Filth Columnist” is his first work created in Sweden, combining a purer, cleaner sound with the elements of dementia that define the Imaginary Forces sonic vocabulary. Haunting spoken word from returning associate Closed Circuits, an uplifting and memorable contribution from Blood of Heroes’ drummer Balázs Pándi, and an appearance from Sex Gang Children’s Matthew Saw round out an amazing transformation album. From the edges of the avant-garde in electronic beat music, Imaginary Forces unleashes trademark chaos, refracted through the lenses of Scandinavian milieu.
JOANNA SYZE: Rodina OUT NOW!!
JOANNA SYZE - RODINA - OUT NOW!!
Featuring collaborations with Zardonic, SPL, The Sect, ProTech, Balkansky, COOH, Tyhh, and many more, this is the debut album from the 10 year+ veteran of drum n bass. Her voice is the focus of the album, haunting and beautiful, with the songs ranging from vocal radio pop tracks to drum n bass dancefloor anthems to dubstep smashers!
SCHECTER: 13 Perspectives EP OUT NOW!!
SCHECTER: 13 PERSPECTIVES EP out now!!!
Kazakhstan’s Timur Turisbekov is the minister of culture from the steppes of Central Asia. An artist with a broad worldview, distilled thru complex beats and emotionally moving electronic dance music, this EP is his opening message to the universe of music. Influenced by everything from Aphex Twin to traditional Kazakh instrumentation, Schecter’s music is richly orchestrated; IDM for lovers of a sound worlds apart from the standard issue. Guest appearance from Balkansky and cover art by Ivan Shopov, this EP ranges from sublimely mellow sounds to maximal music. Schecter is a force from another world.

JOANNA SYZE - RODINA - NOVEMBER 29th
Rodina is the Bulgarian word for homeland, and after returning to her native land for several years, Joanna Syze presents her debut album as a vocalist and producer. Utilizing the talents of the most current drum n bass and dubstep artists, including Balkansky, SPL, Zardonic, The Sect and Cause 4 Concern, the tracks on this near double album contort, twist, and seethe while maintaining one consistent element – the malleable and acrobatic voice of Syze.
BALKANSKY - THE TEMPLE - OUT NOW!!!
1. Badun - Ef10 (Balkansky Remix)
6. The Temple (with Loop Stepwalker featuring Nyree)
7. Rock the Block (featuring Xepha)
8. Pollution (with Scorn)
10. Cloudy (with Enduser)
Bulgaria’s prolific Ivan Shopov is known under a plethora of aliases, and here he presents his second album under his dubstep/brain dance music guise: BALKANSKY. Currently appearing every weekend in Europe, this is his manifesto for Mind, Body, Soul and Spirit. With guest appearances from Scorn, Enduser, Loop Stepwalker, and a remix of a Badun original, Balkansky offers a journey of epic proportions through the realm of the slowed down beat. Intelligent synth work meets a sense of melody and structure from the unique perspective of a Bulgarian more interested in nature and moutains than dancefloor domination – yet he dominates, handily.
The album is a full spectrum of the Balkansky sound – from the gentle opening of his remix of Badun’s EF10 to the punishing floor shaking of Mraked, the album also features guitar instrumentation (Rock the Block), and centers around the vocal title track – a shapeshifting affair, into and out of electromechanical angles with a effortless evenness. The album closes with the appearance of Ohm Resistance stalwart Enduser, a jump off leaving every listener wanting more and wondering where the advanced musical craftsmanship of Ivan Shopov will take them on the next listen.
MELAMIN + WICKED SWAY - METAMORPHOSIS - OUT NOW!!!
‘Metamorphosis’ is easily the most technically impressive electronic release on Ohm Resistance since our inception, the halfway-round-the-world duo of Melamin (Novosibirsk, RU), and Wicked Sway (West Virginia, USA) have put together a mind erasing trip through their world of NEURODUB: a direction in bass music defined by the adaptation of the neurofunk drum n bass mid-range action, welded to the 140 bpm tempo and ironclad stepping beats. From the opening salvo of Bullet to the massive dancefloor moving rips of Double Line to a stopover at the neurodub Checkpoint, this album is not only chockfull of advanced technology beat&bass weapons, it moves into heretofore unseen territories – making it a no-brainer for Ohm Resistance to champion this sound, album, and new direction.
