Karen Gwyer
Rembo

Fabulously creative spins on techno music from Karen Gwyer, back at last with a whole new full-length LP. Eight tracks, generally developed through going-with-the-flow in live performance, whip up a frenzy of pulsing rhythms, nodding to Detroit and weirder underground scenes alike. Rembo is out on Don’t Be Afraid....view item »

Karen Gwyer
Rembo Remixes

After her debut album blew the competition out of the water, Karen Gwyer gets the remix treatment from an assortment of sonic travellers with the same spit and sawdust approach to machine manipulation. Ron Morelli sounds especially ferocious on his version of “He’s Been Teaching Me How To Drive&...view item »

Karen Gwyer / Raven Cru / Dukwa / Lily
DBA024.5

This 4-track multi-artist 12” on Don’t Be Afraid is a great selection, with label favourite Lily on one end and a first ever appearance on record from Raven Kru on the other. However, the pick of the crop might just have to be ...view item »

Karen Gwyer
Prophase Metaphase Anaphase Telophase

Karen Gwyer also seems to be pulled in two different directions. Sometimes she makes cerebral melodic electronic pieces with droney touches, other times (e.g. live), she blasts out ecstatic acid techno. Both forms of Gwyer are fantastic, and this 12” happily combines them. Prophase Metaphase Anaphase T...view item »

Karen Gwyer
Kiki The Wormhole

Initially released on cassette only on Opal Tapes this is a much required vinyl re-issue of Karen Gwyer's stunning synth and drum machine workout. Featuring just three, slowly unfurling tracks, the record takes influence from '70s cosmic synth soundtracks with mind bending deep techno moves and strange...view item »

Beatrice Dillon / Karen Gwyer
Beatrice Dillon / Karen Gwyer

Beatrice Dillion and Karen Gwyer take a side each for some minimal, percussion-focused electronic experiments. Dillon has previously released on Where to Now? and Gwyer has done things for Opal Tapes; a sterling innings. Imagine if Charles Hayward made a minimal techno album, and you&r...view item »

Karen Gwyer
Bouloman

Another nice fresh release from the busy Karen Gwyer, this time a three-track 12” on Nous. The music on Bouloman mirrors the attributes of the pleasingly disorienting op-art sleeve: striking and compelling, acidic synth stabs pushing you one way while the analogue rhythm machines pull you another....view item »

Karen Gwyer
New Roof EP

I have a cassette by this lady on Opal Tapes that I really dig but for some reason haven’t got round to picking up her ‘Needs Continuum’ LP for No Pain In Pop. I’ll most certainly be rectifying that after hearing this 12” (her fourth release o...view item »

Torn Hawk & Karen Gwyer
Cowboys (For Karen)

Before her acclaimed ‘Needs Continuum’ LP was released, Karen Gwyer passed some tracks on to New York’s Luke “Torn Hawk” Wyatt for a remix. What Wyatt did instead was create a 35-minute &ldquo...view item »

Karen Gwyer
Needs Continuum

I’m so tired today I misread the press release of this. It says she “makes slow-burning and sexy ‘bath house’” and I read that as bath noises... Making slow-burning and sexy bath noises is a world apart from bath house! Either way she’s in the bath and cleanliness is next to godliness and you gotta love a clea...view item »
