Best Available Technology
Enginetics & Plasmalterations

Portland’s Best Available Technology makes homemade electronic music that is born out of the world of noise, drone and unpredictable electronics, but that wonders in places into some dubbed-out techno vibes and bass surges you’d want to hear on a club PA. Enginetics & Plasmalterations sounds playful and explorative, even from the depths of its darkness. On 12th Isle.

Excavated Tapes 1992-1999, Vol. 3

Dig into the past works of Best Available Technology (aka Kevin Palmer from Portland) with this third set of rescued archive materials. Excavated Tapes 1992 - 1999, Vol. 3 contains six extracts, all of them unpretentiously titled according to whatever note to himself Kevin had written on the original cassette. All bounced back down to cassette again for this, the final release of the Astro:Dynamics label.

Exposure Therapy

With 90s nostalgia sweeping through club music at the moment, it was only a matter of time before someone started pining for boom-bap. Best Available Technology takes the same hauntological tack of acts like Burial and The Caretaker and refocuses it on golden-age NYC hip-hop. The result is a record of gloopy beat experiments that lands somewhere between The Bug, Sporting Life and RZA. Good, then.

Twisted Ladder

Any day of the week give me some melancholic repeato techno and I'll be happy for awhile. The lead track here is a delicious slab of just that that has gorgeous melancholy synth and two step beats cut into an awkward repeating sample. marvellous. This has in fact four tracks and is a hand stamped edition of 200 so be quick if you want one.

BNJMN & Best Available Technology
De/Re-Constructions

A collaboration between Ben Thomas (BNJMN) and Kevin Palmer (Best Available Technology) which has been years in the making. Thomas and Palmer have been swapping files for some time now, resulting in an 11-track vinyl LP (with download card) that illustrates the engaging commonalities between their respective aesthetics. Pulses, blips, crackles and pads combine to birth a strain of electronic music that is invested with warmth and soul as well as smarts.

Excavated Tapes 1992-1999, Vol. 2

Excavated Tapes Vol. 2 presents to the listener the sound of Kevin Palmer’s (known as Best Available Technology) bedroom circa the 90’s, dusty old cassettes gathered up from their boxes and bumped onto nice new tapes by Astro:Dynamics. Killer lo-fi drum machine beat jams and experimental atmospherics.
