Heavy swinging techno, slowed down to 90bpm, rasping bass-line, dark melodies. That’s the sound Perforated Cerebral Party came up with in 2011 and called it Somatik Techno. It’s spreading through the Net ever since, finding adepts all over the world. Nowadays they are all united into Somatik Sound System and are making digital releases under the Somatik Sounds sign.
Perforated Cerebral Party (P.C.P.) are 2 musicians from S-Petersburg, Russia – Vovapcp and Tsaritsa Logiki.
P.C.P. are staying faithful to the hardware, using AKAI MPC 2500 on stage. Their heavy-weight hypnotic groove sounds like everything you’ve ever heard, yet like nothing you’ve heard before.
This is post-rave in it’s truest sense!

Somatik Techno is – in other words – Biomechano. The first tracks of this sort were recorded as cover – versions, tributes to John Balance of “Coil” (2004) & Klaus Nomi (2006). The idea was to make dark, slow techno, resembling a funeral march. Soon more artists found the heavy, “rusty” groove, dark melodies & rasping bass-line’s of Somatik Techno appealing and this style originated in S-Petersburg, gained followers in Ukraine, Belarus, Finland, Ireland and across Russian Federation.
