Perhaps mashing drum ‘n’ bass troupe EVOL INTENT should change its name to “Evol Knievol.” After all, the Evol Intent trio has leapt some prodigious hurdles in the worldwide drum ‘n’ bass arena. Producing for labels such as Renegade Hardware, Human, and the group’s own Evol Intent Recordings, Evol Intent has placed grit-etched drum ‘n’ bass into DJs’ boxes worldwide. That’s not even when the three are DJing around the world, taking sounds inspired from gun-metal gray gangsta rap and grindcore, but never forsaking melody. A full-length album, as well as collaborations with locally based Ewun, Mayhem and Adult Swim are scheduled.

Nobody stomps harder in the local electronic scene than Matthew Jeanes’ mostly solo, sometimes three-man electro outfit, LARVAE. This year, Jeanes launched sonic assaults on both American and European soil, dropping bombastic, head-nodding beats and bass swells while hooking up with the Berlin-based Ad Noiseum Records. Using guerrilla-style tactics, Larvae’s digital audio/visual dirges have manhandled some of the most recognizable sights and sounds of pop and corporate icons, manipulating everything from Nike to Kill Bill and Star Wars (think Uma Thurman wielding lightsabers instead of samurai swords), all the while avoiding any imperial entanglements such as licensing.

In less than two years, electro-new wave trio I ALMOST SAW GOD IN THE METRO has upgraded its lineup and enhanced its sound to wield a sultry and cybernetic rock groove. Drummer Wynn Muse, vocalist/guitarist David Noel and synth player Zachary Hollback craft a deranged electronic rock swagger that evokes everything from Cabaret Voltaire to early New Order. Hollback divides his time between IASGITM and side projects, like the dark Americana act Brodie Stove, or his solo electro act Push Button Action Man. But these outside endeavors remain in the periphery. When robots rule the world, they will dance to IASGITM. "www.almostsawgod.com" less...

To some, club music is an escape; but to Chris Brann, the composer/conductor behind the ANANDA PROJECT, house music is rather a means of confronting both his loves and limitations. Working within a gospel-influenced tradition, Brann has injected his own post-bop fusion funk leanings through his work with a handpicked assemblage. Timbres glisten and silken soul effortlessly billows as Brann makes deep house his home. The hushed, huddled tones and Balearic beats result in a rarely paralleled lushness, setting Atlanta and Brann's stature on par with Chicago's Mr. Fingers and New York's Masters At Work in the house music canon.

Bubbling analog sounds and '80s production qualities are calling cards for KNAMIPROKO, but make no mistake, this is the sound and vision of the future. Fusing Krafwerkian soundscapes with loosely conceptual films, Knamiproko, is staunch in its position that the visuals are an integral part of the music. As a result, live is the only way to fully experience the group's approach. If you aren't feeling the sounds, you can zone out on the images.

www.aerial2012.com. Less than two years together and Aerial has morphed from a multimedia club night event to one of Atlanta's most popular and adventurous musical ventures. Incorporating live bass, keyboards, sax and vocals into a dense mix of electronic squiggles, drums and a spleen-rupturing low-end, the group has added East Atlanta rock club denizens to their fold and celebrated a sun-baked victory at Music Midtown. See them while you can. They're just too good for Atlanta to hold onto much longer. less...

Aerial has performed in venues ranging from Karma to Nomenclature Museum to warehouses and the Echo Lounge. Recently Aerial's high-flying ambitions landed them in the studio, resulting in a self-produced CD-ROM, Fallen Angel. Tweaking Aerial's reverb-drenched atmosphere of saxophone, squealing synth lines and spooky vocals, Fallen Angel shows that Aerial deserve the karma associated with being the house band for Atlanta's hippest nightlife displays. less...
