For this months episode for Fango Radio, Melantónia is pleased to present Toshiki Shimada from the Berlin based collective, Dry Agency. He chooses to play tracks which differ in style but he has consistent fashion in detail and the core - psychedelic and hypnotic sounds which are cultivated in the fertile club culture in Japan. His play focuses on creating tension and releasing energy through creating layers. In March of this year began his series of listening session at "Motif Wein" in Berlin Neukölln, dedicated to ambient music up to spacy jazz. Thank you for your nicely wide sounding Electronica selection and this excellent mix.
Mattia Onori is a berlin-based audio engineer, sound designer for motion pictures, electronic music composer and sound artist. He is constantly searching for new ways to express himself through sound. He rejects classical music composition and even went through the study of sound engineering only to break the learned rules. From his obsession for analog gear and modular synthesis come his eclectic works as HRNR. Besides mixes of diﬀerent ambient and techno nuances, he designs drony panoramas where noisy inﬂuences are poised between a natural analog sound and a cumbersome one, featuring the unique soundscapes of his experimental electronics.
Plants Army Revolver

For the first Melantónia show on Fango Radio, they please us with a special ambient selection.
