Mark Ernestus' Ndagga Rhythm Force
Yermande

Basic Channel mastermind Mark Ernestus has been immersing himself in collaborations with African musicians for some years now: his Ndagga Rhythm Force is an incredible group of Dakar mbalax musicians. For Yermande, their intense band recordings have been tweaked and dubbed-up by ...view item »

Rhythm & Sound w/ Tikiman
Music A Fe Rule

Under the name Rhythm & Sound, Moritz von Oswald and Mark Ernestus finally saw the opportunity to showcase and develop their love for reggae. For Music a Fe Rule, they combined their affinity with dub techno (as the legendary duo Basic Channel) with the laid-back patois of Tikiman, ...view item »

Rhythm & Sound
Carrier

Rhythm & Sound’s hard-to-find dub techno smash hit (as far as dub techno has smash hits, of course) finally back on wax. One of eight releases by Moritz von Oswald and Mark Ernestus, better known as Basic Channel, under the R&S moniker. Carrier is classic EP for anybody who loves dub ...view item »

Rhythm & Sound
Trace

Arguably one of my favourite press releases: 'Trace 9:00, Imprint 16:24'. Completely lacking any information whilst simultaneously giving you all the  information you need. Track name and when it's on. Brilliant. Trace is the heavy electronic and ambient release from Rhythm & Sound that's available on vinyl 12"...view item »

Basic Channel
Q-Loop

This little 12" from mostly-defunct Berlin techno nexus Basic Channel reissues 3 tracks from the 1995 BCD compilation, previously only available on CD. Despite their age, these productions still sound relevant today, with wisps of static noise, dub techno chords and staccato sub bass forming a hazy mix....view item »

Rhythm & Sound
The Versions

Moritz von Oswald & Ordo Sakhna
Moritz von Oswald & Ordo Sakhna

Basic Channel dub techno supremo Moritz von Oswald has collaborated with Ordo Sakhna, a Kyrgyzstani roots music collective. You might not consider that a logical combination, but you would be wrong! Moritz has subtly garnished the crystal-clear recordings of the amazing Kyrgyzst...view item »

Mark Ernestus Vs. Konono No. 1
Masikulu Dub / Masikulu Rhythm

OK, this is the second Congotronics remix 12" following on from the Shackleton/Burnt Friedman effort I reviewed last week. This ones on Honest Jon's but it looks the same as the last, packaged in a black disco bag with a basic label. Both sides are mixes by Mark Ernestus of Basic Channel/Maurizio who, to be honest, I'm not at all familiar with i...view item »

Mark Ernestus Vs. Obadikah
April

Obadikah are a Lagos brass band formed from veterans of the Nigerian music scene (some were founder members of the Eko Brass Band). They play joyous Yoruban songs, often in churches, but this particular release finds Mark Ernestus putting them in a rather different context, swathing their brass ...view item »

Maurizio
Domina

There's a long list of magical Maurizio tracks going back over the years, but this EP is top of the pile. The Carl Craig remix and it's switch of gears from luscious synth chords into a spacious thumping, shuffling house cuddle would be enough to headline most releases, but the minimal perfection of the Maurizio mix will not be denied. The mo...view item »

Rhythm & Sound
The Versions

The Versions is an album of, er, versions, that correspond to the latest vocal Rhythm & Sound album. Rhythm & Sound might have a generic-sounding name, but when you know the personnel involved (Moritz von Oswald and Mark Ernestus!) you realise that this is stuff...view item »
