The folks over at Secret Thirteen were more than kind enough to bring us this fantastic blend of textures, confusing, screeching ambiance and general noise. Not much is known about the masked Violet Poison, and while some may fixate on this anonymity, it's more about the actual sound that comes of it.
The author of the mix is mysterious Violet Poison, a cosmopolitan industrial/experimental techno producer and live act often wearing a black nylon mask during his live performances. His music is based on noisy rhythms, extensive sound architecture and profound low tones. Violet Poison is inspired by various conspiracy theories, egyptology, freemasonry and history. The meaning of his name flows from violet colour which is the most esoteric and one of the oldest colours used by humans, and poison which is associated to perhaps the most feminine way to kill. Both words have gothic and dark imagery behind. Even though Violet Poison’s works has recently appeared in the catalogs of electronic music, he is not a newbie in the scene and has a vast baggage of previous releases via other pseudonyms. However, this is a secret, because the artist covers his real identity so the listeners could not recognise him and link his parallel creations to his nowadays electronic explorations. In the recent time Violet Poison has released 4 records on such labels as Repitch Recordings, Dominick Fernow’s Hospital Productions and Bed Of Nails. It is important to mention that Violet Poison and Shapednoise collaborate on Violetshaped project and are the founders of Violet Poison label where they release their own production.
