Bomphcast is a fortnightly podcast of curated and exclusively recorded techno music. It’s run by the live techno performance duo, Back Burners along with the help of their friends Pat Rebakis (media and communications) and Liam White (podcast artworks). For Bomphcast the asked Italian artist Hydergine to contribute a mix of his deep techno vision.
Hydergine, real name Roberto Corizzo, is an Italian DJ and producer who’s name takes cues from a “smart drug used to improve the metabolism of brain cells and cognitive abilities”. He takes interest in the cognitive functions of the brain and with his music aims to ensnare the listener into a comfortable state of meditative immersion. The choices of spectral content, tempo, groove and progression are therefore selected in line with this goal. As a result, Hydergine offers up soft, squishy and dubby atmospheres that reinvigorate our appreciation that Techno does not always need to be aggressive and confrontational.
Other than his Hydergine project, Roberto is owner of the Ranges label and co-owner of the Subosc Label in part with another Bomphcastian, Kaelan.
