Stephen Mallinder
Um Dada

It wouldn’t really be accurate to say that we’ve been waiting a long time for a Stephen Mallinder solo LP. This is because the Cabaret Voltaire man’s last (and previously only) album Pow-Wow came out a full 37 years ago, way back in 1982, and as such most of us had stopped holding out for a follow-up. Now we’re pleased to tell you that 1) there is one, 2) it’s called Um Dada and 3) it’s good. This is a record of sprightly oddball techno-tronica that’s not dissimilar to Mouse On Mars or Matmos. Um Dada is out via Dais (Drab Majesty, SRSQ). Please note that the CD release contains two tracks that don't appear on the vinyl editions.

Wrangler
Three Memes

My three favourite memes are Disaster Girl, UNITINU and Spurdo Spärde. To find out analogue electronics supertrio Wrangler’s (Stephen Mallinder of Cabaret Voltaire, Phil Winter of Tunng and Memetune boss Benge of John Foxx and the Maths) own shortlist, you’ll just have to snap up this EP. Features veteran Crooked Man’s take on ‘Real Life’, Daniel Miller’s oily remix of ‘Theme from Wrangler’ (previously released on remix comp Sparked) and LoneLady’s rework of ‘Space Ace’.

Creep Show
Mr. Dynamite

Creep Show is a collaboration between John Grant and dark, electronic funksters Wrangler. Their debut album, Mr. Dynamite, is a surreal and experimental journey through the brooding underbelly of pop and funk. They throw together sounds from every imaginable analogue drum machine and synth you can imagine. John Grant’s penchant for dark humour in his lyrics is present and reinforced by Wrangler vocalist, Stephen Mallinder, of Cabaret Voltare fame. LP and CD on Bella Union.

Wrangler
White Glue

Electronic trio Wrangler, headed by Cabaret Voltaire's Stephen Mallinder, release 'White Glue', an album rich in analogue synthesisers and surreal minimalism. Assisted by Phil Winter of folktronica stalwarts Tunng, and producer / synthesiser fanatic Benge, Wrangler do feverish rushing techno with rich layered vocals. Available on vinyl or cd.

Sparked: Modular Remix Project

Wrangler’s 2014 album LA Spark was generously handed around to a potent list of electronic producers, with the request that make something new, using “just one analog modular system of your choice”. Those who answered the call include Chris Carter, Scanner and Alessandro Cortini, with 11 versions in all. On MemeTune.

Wrangler
LA Spark

Showcasing the potential of dedication to techno and electro in general, Wrangler’s debut is all about making your head nod while your mind drifts. Hailed as one of the best electronic albums of the year (hindsight really is 20/14), LA Spark is recommended to anybody who like synthesizers. And honestly, who doesn't?
