Motor Neurone with END: the DJ

Motor Neurone is a new guest column here on IVM spotlighting new releases and artists in dark electronic music. Straight through the vein into your nervous system...

It's an honour to take part in the music featured here at INTRAVENOUS MAGAZINE; narrowing down a starting point halfway through 2013 was a difficult challenge as there have been so many outstanding releases these recent months but now that I'm here, let's get this machine operational.
The focus of each Motor Neurone column will not only be the new releases in the darker styles of electronic music from artists both new and familiar, but also the music that makes you move. In supporting music from many independent (and a few established) labels & artists from the many genres others may describe as industrial dance, EBM, dark electro, ad infinitum. Each month you'll find a new music top 10 compiled by me from the reactions & support from the listeners/fans at large (including myself) and in-between you may find more detailed discussions, interviews and reviews on other aspects of dark electronic music culture- most especially club culture. So to start, let's have -

1. Parralox- Eye in the Sky- Subterrane Records 
This synth pop act from Australia has released an album of covers "Recovery". Among the many classics with their own unique twist is this cover from the Alan Parsons Project. An interesting choice that works so very well!

2. Daniel B & Seven- BTB- ETM Recordings 
The new sub-label of ETT Recordings, this very moving, textured and deep track catches listeners from the very first beat!

3. The People's Republic of Europe- Warrior- New Darkness Recordings 
TPROE continues to unleash wave after wave of fantastic beats- this track is off of the new "Feel the Power" album. Don't miss the entire release!

4. Dark Age- Afterlife (Eisbrecher Club Cut)- AFM Records 
One of the many fine remixes off Dark Age's Afterlife EP release.

5. Mental Discipline- WDYWFM feat. Spekralized (Assemblage 23 Remix)- Skyqode Records 
MD's latest release still going very strong and continues to grab every listeners' full attention.

6. Funker Vogt- Gott Noch Nicht- Metropolis Records 
One of strong tracks from FV's Companions in Crime album!

7. Stahlschlag- Roots- self-released 
Stahlschag's now "Average Aggressive" album has so many amazing noise tracks- this is but one of the stand outs.

8. Moon.74- How I Feel- Infacted Recordings 
This Electro act from Germany's Infacted label has both a new single and album release that has very solid production work and fantastic vocals. Be on the look out for Moon.74!

9. Jean Agoriia- Terra- Login Records 
This bass heavy, low frequency killer out of Spain's Login Recs is awesome!

10. Pride and Fall- Passionate Pain- Metropolis Records 
After a lengthy absence, Pride and Fall's back with the new "Of Lust and Desire" album. This track grabbed me right away; response has been strong with this one.
