DKA is starting 2023 off with an EBM bang with Violent Protocol by Semantix. The solo-project of Keaton Khonsari (Razorbumps, Narrow Head), Semantix is the result of years in the Texas underground that Khonsari spent learning synthesis and production. Violent Protocol contains 5 originals and three remixes from DKA alumni Balvanera and Autumns along with Orlando's Mother Juno. Violent Protocol’s catchy, rhythmic basslines, tense atmosphere, and old-school EBM samples confronting despair, violence, and power structures will surely appeal to long time followers of DKA and new fans alike. We here at DKA loved Semantix's first release Mania in the Psychosphere and feel that this sophomore release will place Semantix amongst EBM's elite dance floor destructors in 2023.
