Global Vibe Radio 076 feat. Exilles

Exilles is a project born from the alchemy of two minds, united by a common desire to undermine, compose and recompose deep techno sounds with a mystical and enigmatic imagery. They strictly perform live, orchestrating ancestral ceremonies with analog machines and modular synthesizers, whose dark and hypnotic sounds chase the persistent in a synesthetic atmosphere.

A techno duo from Torino, Italy, Exilles’ sound is captivating and enthralling, a maze of tunnels, stairs, niches that form hypnotic soundscapes that invite you to go even deeper.
 Their goal is to produce techno built around the polarity of light and darkness, black and white, continuously keeping listened poised between opposites, between consciousness and raving.
