Despite a wealth of art and music projects under his wing, the
Transylvanian born producer remains something of a mystery
online, even to those blogs that have loyally posted his tracks.
The last few years have been spent living in a Milan squat,
creating art installations, running an illegal club and his working
on his own label Hundebiss Records, turning out exquisitely
crafted limited origami-packaged records featuring the music of
such talents as James Ferraro, Hype Williams, Hair Police, Sewn
Leather, Jaws and more.
But now Dracula Lewisʼ own music comes into the spotlight. His
output is one of deep listening, lo-fi aggressive electronics, field
recordings and, way down in its core, an underlying melody and
unexpected warmth.
As Fact put it, Dracula Lewis makes “expansive, pseudo-horrorflick
music that oscillates between ethereal ambience and
grinding, zombie-attack noise freakouts”.
Whatever the words used to describe Dracula Lewis, thereʼs a
dark magic and hypnotic allure to the distorted electronics,
samples, chants & loops. And itʼs this magic that has earned him
the accolade of being Souterrain Transmissionsʼ first European
signing.
