In the late 80’s and early 90’s, a global revolution of a new underground music scene that focused on the raving experience appeared.
With some of the most influential electronic labels, artists and clubs of that time Belgium was at the front of this era that created a platform for a new, exciting movement worldwide.
These last years we have been inspired by the return of this unrefined, straight forward and no-bullshit approach on techno music.
Because of the hard work and dedication due to some local underground crews with the right state of mind pushing this music, a proper scene in Belgium has lifted from the bottom of the underground.
It’s time to combine forces and take back our position in rave culture.
And we know how it’s done, since we were among the first to do so…

The latest to merge from the nascent π Electronics roster is Damcase (real name Dimitris Damaskos). 2016 saw a bumper year for Damaskos, with three vinyl releases including one on Bas Mooy’s prolific Mord imprint and the legendary Bunker Records. Much of Damaskos’ brand of techno brings to mind the heydey of DIY bedroom electronics. Listen, for example, to the full-throttle pelt of his Bunker release. There is a clear slapdash approach to these productions. They feel as though they have been made on-the-spot and in-the-moment. Everything is simply pushed to the max: subtlety is auxiliary. This gives them an immense projection velocity; one that cannot be matched by over-considered productions.
This latest release on π is particularly nasty. Each basslines is a little snot-nosed bastard. Like some pissed-off pitbull, they snarl and bare their teeth. The release is also electrified by sharp static that snaps out in random bursts like a live wire. By the end, everything is caked in a blanket of noise, almost too harsh for the human ear. Totally anti-social, totally obnoxious and totally gripping. This is a release strongly recommended to annoy neighbours, parents and, well… basically everyone.
Listen below for an exclusive stream of ‘PI03.5’, the closing track of the EP, and the nastiest of the lot.
For the first time, we bring you the dark side of techno for a raw industrial day event.
Day-On brings you the darkness of the night to day.
