borshch Magazine Issue 5 – Dark Side
In sweaty basements and concrete cathedrals, we enter the darkness. We challenge our senses with obscure electronic music and unsettling environments to feel comfortable with our discomfort. Animistic Beliefs, Deena Abdelwahed, Rrose, Lucrecia Dalt, Klein, Alessandro Adriani, and Ziúr commit to neither darkness nor light. In the democratic culture of shadows embodied in DIY studios and on stuffy dancefloors, these musicians experiment with our dark sides. In their process, sins, injustice, and disquiet are as human and real as pleasures and joy. Think of entering the dark as an act of coming home, to the cave where the primary source of life is hidden.
BORSHCH is a magazine for electronic music on and beyond the dancefloor.
