Walid El Barbir (a.k.a DJ W.E.B) has dropped a new EP on Les Points, titled Wire Parasitism.
The album is inspired by the electronic music which was produced during the end of the '80s and beginning of the '90s by the likes of Richard H. Kirk, Psychic TV, Coil, David Campbell, and Lagowski, to name a few. We're told that Walid uses his producing and sampling skills to "create contemporary and industrial sounding compositions" out of found footage like occult documentaries, rave stabs, or Emax sound-libraries.
Walid is a part of the Les Points collective based in Zürich, Switzerland. His art and music draws from '90s rave utopias, occultism, progressive and accessible frameworks as showcased at their offspace Mikro, a physical room with no doors and opening times during exhibitions and raves. This will be his first solo outing on the label, though he has previously appeared as Barbir.
