  • Broken techno that sounds like it came from 2121.

  • Athens-based producer bonebrokk calls his music "ExoPunk," an ambiguous but evocative name that brings to mind some creature with a massive, sleek exoskeleton. This image fits the music: crunchy broken techno with a stomp and a snarl, and textures that sound like they came from the far future. The title track from his new EP on Infinite Machine is one of his most impressive yet, with a pounding, glitchy pulse that feels seismic in proportion. Peel back the layers of twisted metal and distortion and you'll hear what sounds like distant screaming, half-human half-machine, a touch that lends "The Astral Catalyst" both a post-punk edge and a horror movie atmosphere.
