Elektro Vox best of 2020

It's been a tough year and I have not kept as up to date with the wider spectrum of industrial and electronic music as I would have liked to in order to call this a true 'Best of' list.

However these are my personal favourite and best from 2020, many of them related to the work I have done with the bands throughout the year, and some of them I just enjoyed amongst all the rest and didn't get round to writing about.

So here's my short set of lists with no explanations to get in the way. Enjoy!

Best unexpected pleasure


The Weeknd - 'Blinding lights' This has brought synthwave in to the main stream and I think we can all agree that it's incredible!

Thank you


We were able to bring you events like Cyber EVM due to some incredible bands, thank you to all of those involved.

Especially a huge thank you to Scott of iVardensphere and Jasyn of God Module for being our first headline acts; putting your trust in a brand new online event! Also a big thank you to Iszoloscope, ESA, and Memmaker for headlining EVM 2.


Most important thanks go to the Karkasaurus duo Mark and Peter, and Matt of Biomechanimal for all of your hard work and help this year in putting together so many streams to keep people entertained.

Thank you to both bands for going out of their way to make rare industrial specific shows for us especially back when lockdown began as some small replacement for Elektro Vox (live) Festival having to be postponed.

A huge thank you to everyone who donated to Cyber EVM to help Slimelight and of course to the late, and great legend Mayuan Mak for everything he has done for our community.


Thank you to everyone who has a listing on the Alternative Diectory, I hope to really push that next year!


Finally thank you to everyone who has listened, supported, read, donated, submitted music, emails, and commissions to us etc, etc; And thank you to my friends and loved ones, I couldn't do any of this without you! <3
