Cosmotropia de Xam’s EKSTASIA – Discoteca Droga [Trailer, 2013] from Mater Suspiria Vision on Vimeo.
Vocalist and producer, Carmen Incarnadine, was recently featured in Rolling Stone for her contributions to net culture and South African contemporary music. Not bad you’d say, for an artist whose debut album, Siamese Inside (Black Bvs Records) is still up for pre-order.
This pretty kitty has global collaborators as numerous, as Gaea has demi-god spawn. Her Coco Carbomb persona is brash, feminine, sexy, strong and graceful with base notes of alt class. In my opinion, she is one of the few women out there who is actually getting sexual expression 2013 right. Her aesthetic leads with a clear message: I know exactly what I do. Do you get it?
Too many girls out there are going a bit reverse-Rupaul on us just to find a voice -and no one deserves it. Not them, not us. Carmen stays accountable to herself. As her presence powers through neo sociology en masse, it shows. She has more to say with one image, one poem than a lot of artists can say with their whole catalogue.
Her main partner in crime is Nikhil Singh (Witchboy) who produces a great deal of Carbomb’s work and starred in the Rolling Stone article. The two of them are known to go hand in hand. Carmen is also a long time collaborator with who many would consider thee most prolific project of witch-net culture; Mater Suspiria Vision.
Filmmaker, MSV visionaire and founder of label Phantasma Disques: Cosmotropia de Xam has just completed a future-cult film with Carbomb as his leading femme fatale - Ekstasia Discoteca Droga.
I was thrilled to bits to get a sneak peak the film trailer and now present this Mishka premiere of it. It’s a cut above anything I have seen around netsphere this whole year… and confirms once more what I have always thought; MSV, CDX and Carbomb are the perfect avant garde team.
This film is on a strict limited run. The classic design boxset (white) is 25 copies only, which is almost criminal. The neon-noir style boxset (black) is limited to a generous 50 (If you are fast enough). Trust me, you don’t want to end up paying double on ebay for it in 10 months time. I did that a couple of years ago with the first Crack Witch. Regrets.
The Phantasma Disques system of output is increasingly cerebral with every release. You have to determine the relative collectability of the items and match the concepts with your personal passions or usage. This label is not for the kiddy pool. It has a certain alternate angle that you could only find with refined and bizaare German engineering.
Here’s how Ekstasia Discoteca Droga gets broken down… 6th May: pre-order for the movie DVD boxsets both white (25) and black (50). They each come with a CDR of rare material not found on the LP.
13th May: pre-order the LP picture disc vinyl (see image) with cassette tri-phonic (a 3D-ish soundsystem by CDX) boxset that works with the endless groove tone of the vinyl. It also comes with a pretty old timey device repackaged into MSV awesomeness, something called a phenakistoscope (well, the disc of it anyway). We all actually know exactly what they are. The name of it is just looks long and scary. Check the hyperlink. To view in full effect you need to use a 25 fps camera or phenakistoscope slides. Meh, don’t cry. It is way easier than you would suspect – and so much fun!
