Started when the first pandemic confinement hit, this is content that celebrates my past and informs a fresh vision forward. I have a fascination for subcultures, specially those with a close-knit relationship with leftfield and challenging music, so music does take center stage here. Glad if it resonates with you in some way and you discover something new here, in which case you should explore more and support the artists. Moving between London and Porto. Curated by Jorge Sampaio.

Infidel Castro Notes

Infidel? Castro!

COLIN MARSTON
The works of hyperactive wunderkind musician and producer Colin Marston (of Dysrhythmia fame then, of the amazing Krallice lately) led me to discover one of his many projects exploring the limitless possibilities of noise: Infidel?/Castro!. Listening to (and enjoying) the music of I?C! takes preparation, even 15 years after its release. Sprawling structures combine metal elements with ambient soundscapes, adding near-indigestible digital treatment, sounding suspiciously like a broken cd player. Indeed when I bought this it was in the form of 2 cd's. There's a lot to feast on here in a combination of ambient (early tracks) and a more nervous atmosphere (later). I am fine with having to skip the harsher bits but this is one of those albums I am still considering cutting and stitching all the favorite bits in Audacity...
