The press release for Lee Gamble’s new EP In A Paraventral Scale identifies him as a sound designer, junglist and composer. Though seemingly disparate terms, this is in fact a pretty apt description. Gamble is an artist unafraid to take the sound artefacts of rave music in strange, often exciting new directions. These seven tracks are no exception - everything from DJ Stingray to Fatima Al Qadiri is referenced.
Lee Gamble sneakily drops two new tracks white-label style on PAN, no doubt to the joy of many. Specifically, these tracks are for the dancers: Motor System is extracted from his Koch album but beefed up and extended for the club and B23 Steelhouse is similarly hyped. Mastered for maximum impact. 500 copies only.

Lee Gamble’s first full-length in three years is a record of nuanced edge-of-the-dancefloor music that finds a fitting home on Hyperdub. Gamble describes Mnestic Pressure as a record that seeks to find order in an increasingly chaotic world and regain a sense of self separate from the images one is constantly subject to in 2017. This manifests itself as an album of aquatic electronica and Burial-esque post-rave stylings.
The latest from much respected experimental dancehead Gamble, this further refines his work referencing the past sounds UK jungle, rave and techno but bring something wholly new to the party. This exploratory work sounds like a coagulation of the best bits of dark 90's underground danced, re-badged for the modern day techno enthusiast. A quick listen to 'Motor System' reveals a pounding, pulsating bedrock of percussion over which soft evocative synths are layered. It works splendidly, sounding new but also nostalgic at the same time. If the rest of the album is as good then this double vinyl, single CD record could be one of this years landmark releases.
Lee Gamble ushers us into his new spin-off label with 4 of his own productions. UIQ Inversions is apparently reserved for Gamble’s own work, which seems fair enough on the basis of Chain Kinematics: this is cutting-edge stuff, dancefloor dynamics absorbed into experimental frameworks and weird ambient textures. Yes yes yes.
Uk techno wizard Lee Gamble has been quiet for the past couple of years, remix obligations aside. Atmospheric and strangely melancholy, yet still immensely danceable, 'Kuang' is released ahead of long-awaited new album 'Koch' which comes out next month. Left-field and old school, and futuristic. All at once.
