† DARK WAVE † INDUSTRIAL † WITCH HAUS † ELECTRO †
† BL▲CK M▲SS † is an avant-garde dance party bringing you the best in cultstep, brokenclash, grave wave, and demonic disco.
Featuring guest performances by newbreed artists from the dark spectrum of music.
We invite you to enjoy a refreshing glass of absinthe and an evening of cold, dark, haunting and abrasive music.
∆ 1am † LAKE R▲DIO
Cary, IL//Self Released
This pet project of 20 year old Illinois native Caden Moore was done as an exploration into the “darker” realm of music and himself. Prior to forming LAKE R▲DIO, Caden sang and played guitar in Heavy Ghost (for whom he still plays) and sometimes released solo stuff under the name The Sky Operator. Citing dreams as the biggest driving force for LAKE R▲DIO, it’s no wonder his songs have an other-worldly charm, an inverse familiarity like hearing or seeing in a dream.
Almost all of LAKE R▲DIO’s samples come from VHS recordings, cassette tapes, some vinyl and even YouTube videos which help explain the well worn and even sinister intimacy all of the songs possess. In many ways for Caden, his LAKE R▲DIO songs are almost reincarnations of audio that had once existed in a new body of sound.
∆ 12a † ÐÆMØИ ИɪĦɪⱠ
Lansing//BMS//Owlcave Records//Nom Nom Tunez
ÐÆMØИ ИɪĦɪⱠ has been operating clandestinely in Michigan for over 10 years.

ÐÆMØИ ИɪĦɪⱠ is always at the razor's edge of dark electronic, bringing the newest and most underground dark spectrum music to the dance floor. Blending electro-industrial, darkwave, EBM, techno, and witch house into a dense, kaleidoscopic, and sinister sound.
