Dolly was a raver! Dolly was a raver she liked to party hard The dancefloor was the only home she ever had Dolly liked latex and stiletto heels But if she liked the beat she would not stand still When my eyes catch the flare of a laser I still see her dancing like crazy But when my eyes catch the flare of a laser I still see her, Dolly was a raver Dolly was a raver she’d say she had no shame She was a slave to the beat and the bass Dolly made a vow, her life was the rave But after the breakdown she left without a trace When my eyes catch the flare of a laser I still see her dancing like crazy When my eyes catch the flare of a laser I still see her, her skins and the razor But when my eyes catch the flare of a laser I still see her, Dolly was a raver When my eyes catch the flare of a laser I still see her dancing like crazy but when my eyes catch the flare of a laser I still see her, Dolly was a raver Dolly was a raver she liked to party hard the dance floor was the only home she ever had Dolly liked latex and stiletto heels But if she liked the beat she would not stand still

Let’s kill the lights, let’s kill this night babe Let’s push it all away Engage the bass, step in this new phase Let’s push it all away Let’s kill the lights, let’s kill this night babe Let’s push it all away Engage the bass, step in this new phase Let’s push it all away Engage the bass! The aftertaste of clubbing at the back of my throat The sweet and sour smile at the edge of a note Hanging in the air like a wicked bass drop Waiting for the build up Pulling all the stops Engage the bass! Let’s kill the lights, let’s kill this night babe Let’s push it all away Engage the bass, step in this new phase Let’s push it all away Engage the bass!

Primitive 04:54
Nanotech and limestone bricks Hidden in fog a clock ticks Counting down the devolution timeline An 8-bit sample digital chime Our primitive thinking Our sins and lies History and Nature Making us so blind There's no right There's no wrong Our future Our woken soul There's no us There's no truth Our path Invisible and cruel Nanotech and limestone bricks History and Nature making us so primitive There's no right There's no wrong Our future Our woken soul There's no us There's no truth Our path Invisible and cruel

You want to drag everyone down You want to drag everyone down with you No-one’s off-limits All pain is fair play Plenty of excuse to justify your crimes But none for the suckers on the other side With your nihilist T-shirt You’re nothing but a second hand cliché Seconds away from betraying your pals Embrace the new and piss on your past Rise up! Another victim, another war, somebody to drag down to the floor Where you belong, where you feel right Lies ammo of your fight Down in the mud you feel at home, but you need an enemy to feel whole You want to drag everyone down You wan tot drag everyone down with you You want to drag everyone down You wan tot drag everyone down with you

about

One year after the successful release of "Adrenochrome" and its follow-up remix EP, "Meathead’s Lost HD", Marco Visconti and Marko Resurreccion are back and ready to unleash the Alchemy Series: three EPs planned to be released no more than six months from each other, an non-stop audio assault that will once again set aflame the alternative dancefloors worldwide with its mixture of old and new influences from the classic sounds of trance to the modern beats of EDM.

Three releases as three are the phases of the Alchemical process, said to transform the lower metals such as lead into gold, and which is nothing else but a veiled allegory of the initiatory path from man to Godhead.

The journey starts on June 6th, 2014 with One Of Three: Nigredo.

Nigredo, or blackness, in alchemy means putrefaction or decomposition. The alchemists believed that as a first step in the pathway to the philosopher's stone all alchemical ingredients had to be cleansed and cooked extensively to a uniform black matter. In analytical psychology, the term became a metaphor for the dark night of the soul, when an individual confronts the shadow within.
