created in 1997, sonic area (aka arco trauma) is a french electronic monocephalic project, influenced by dither, scorn, 2nd gen, hint, enio moricone and all suicide lullabies which mixes electro hybrid experimental, cinematic orchestral atmospheres, dirty abstract hip-hop, tribal industrial techno-punk, brutal wall of sounds, hard-glitch breaks and lush ambient soundscapes. disturbing, unexpectable and sometimes hard to describe, it's darkly intoxicating. imagine yourself sleeping in a lost factory built over sacred indian burial grounds... 'rarities (2003-2012)' includes 17 re-mastered b-sides, singles, live versions and rare tracks which were previously released on several label compilations. on this release you are about to discover the full spectrum of sonic area's aural self-conception - impulsive, haunting, cinematic and demanding at the same time. let yourself go, and enjoy!
