Alt Electro Music

Inspired by his Dad: Tektula brings Otu on board to send out ”By My Side”

We often lust after that person that we can’t be with. It sadly doesn’t happen sometimes no matter how long we want it to be a reality. Do we give up or hope that things will change?

Tektula’s artist name is a mixture of his surname and the words techno and tarantula. He started making music when he was 10 years old. Tektula’s father gave him a program called ProTraxx and the magic started from that day. Well done Mr Tektula.

This talented young producer resides in the beautiful town of Aschaffenburg in Germany and this is his newest release off the album ”Fear” from 2020.

By My Side” is a sad song lyrically and takes a while to build up but when it does it is a pleasant listen. This is a new artist that is finding his feet and getting to know himself. I have no doubt that with his hard working ethic he will become a huge name in the electro world. All thanks to his Dad who had the self-awareness to help his son with his passion.

Go to Spotify to hear this song and more.

For gig info be sure to go to his Facebook and find out more about this promising producer from Germany.

OVVLS – LESS THAN PURE: Cinematically Macabre Alt Electro

After checking out OVVLS at this year’s Across the Threshold festival (where they absolutely stole the show) in Liverpool, I’m absolutely delighted to hear that the duo has created yet another dark and twisted melodic weaving of synth-driven alchemy.

The infectiously catchy lyrical narrative tells a pensive tale of addiction, ironically right from the first verse you’re absolutely hooked. Whilst OVVL’s style is usually decadent, and resoundingly macabre, their latest single LESS THAN PURE was overwhelmingly sobering. Usually, you don’t get to hear a lot of soul in Electronica, yet, thanks to OVVL’s authentically raw offering to the genre you’re treated to momentous offerings of perfectly styled melancholy. What packs even more essence into the duo’s sound is their choice to use an acoustic drum kit to lay down the rhythm of their tracks. No 808’s to be found here.

You can check out OVVL’s latest music from September 21st via Spotify, in the meantime head over and check out some of their earlier releases – you can’t go far wrong with ‘Mind Leeches’ or ‘Pain is Beauty’.

Connect with the Liverpool-based via Facebook to keep up to date with all of their latest releases.
