Hypogeo (Zenon Records)
HypoGeo is by definition : whatever origins, grows and evolves under the ground.
This description perfectly fits his music : deep, obscure, hypnotic, mental, dirt and psychedelic, taking shades through his musical background made of extreme metal, industrial/ebm, new wave/post punk, techno , idm & darkambient.
In May 2012 HypoGeo releases his first full length album “Tree of Lies” with Zenon records, the widely known Australian label. The album is a huge success by critics and fans for his particularly aggressive and heavy sound, thats built the bridge between the most deep and psychedelic trance (many says forest) and the actual Zenon sound. Doesn’t matter how you call it, it’s definitely something that you have to experience live catching the Hypo performance on a Festival or party around the world.
Kromagon (Zenon Records)
In 2012 Kromagon, the side project of Nikroma, was signed to the world-renowned progressive label, Zenon Records. Kromagon focuses on a psychedelic journey coupled with ever-evolving abstract soundscapes, offering the awakening of a new musical era as well as a passage for listeners into a sacred dimension of spiritual being. Using tribal percussion, forest atmospheres, and intertwining industrialized effects, Kromagon creates a diverse sonic palette where organic and synthetic fuse to produce an unparalleled auditory experience.
