Francis Bebey
African Electronic Music 1975-1982

Putting aside a slightly over-simplistic title, ‘African Electronic Music 1975-1982’ superb compilation of brilliantly idiosyncratic tracks from Cameroonian artist Francis Bebey. This record demonstrates Bebey’s compositional panache as well as anything else in his discography, the melange of synthesiser sounds mixing with sprightly acoustic instrumentation and wry, witty vocals.

Marie Davidson & L'Oeil nu
Renegade Breakdown

Following a global smash a couple of years back with ‘Work It’, Marie Davidson unleashes a new album, made in collaboration with an entity known as L’Oeil Nu - in reality, Asaël R. Robitaille and her husband and partner in Essaie Pas, Pierre Guerineau. Renegade Breakdown represents a slight parting from club culture and the style that has seen Davidson relentlessly tour the globe, more songwriterly and less overtly dancefloor-orientated.

Flying Lotus
Presents INFINITY “Infinitum” - Maida Vale Session

Flying Lotus 'Presents INFINITY “Infinitum” - Maida Vale Session' is one of ten radio sessions being released by Warp Records on the occasion of their big three-oh. Compared to the rest of the label Flying Lotus is too old to be new guard and too new to be old guard. Nonetheless, his hip hop abstractions are a big reason why Warp is still so relevant.

John Maus
We Must Become The Pitiless Censors Of Ourselves

John Maus’ We Must Become The Pitiless Censors Of Ourselves is the record we both need and deserve. The 2011 album saw Maus (somewhat) hone the hypnagogic pop of his first two LPs in a ‘search for the perfect pop song’. Sometimes this means we get wistful, florid synth-pop in the mould of Maus’ good friend Ariel Pink; sometimes this means we get brisk, bracing Joy Division-esque post-punk; always it means we get a record that lays itself bare, bringing the bliss even as Maus coos things like 'let's kill every cop in sight'.

Jon Hopkins & Kelly Lee Owens
Luminous Spaces / Luminous Beings

Regarded as one of the most pioneering and boundary-pushing electronic twiddlers in the game at the moment, Jon Hopkins' recent works have seen the producer reach new stratospheric level. In this collaboration with Kelly Lee Owens, 'Luminous Beings' is re-worked into a sparkling and transcending slice of gold named 'Luminous Spaces'.

Karl Lindh
Bortom E4's Horrisont

A Swedish producer based in Gothenburg, Karl Lindh (real name Lukas Pettersson aka Luke Eargoggle) drops his olde 2005 electronic brainchild on wax for the first time via Low Company - 'Bortom E4's Horrisont'. With a sprawling selection of instruments featuring on the pieces, the Scandinavian marries numerous styles and flavours to create something authentic and vibrant. Superb jazz-tinged ambient that shows a totally different side to the artist - best known for his electro productions on Bunker and his own Stilleben label.

Styrofoam
We Can Never Go Home

Belgian electronica veteran Arne van Petegem drops the latest thing from his long-running Styrofoam project. We Can Never Go Home is a record of typically pleasant, slightly emo bedroom instrumentals. Imagine The Postal Service sans lyrics. Greek label Sound In Silence (yndi halda, (ghost)) proves a fine fit for the album.

FKA twigs
EP1

Think back to 2012, when the remarkable FKA twigs made her debut release. You probably didn’t pick up EP 1 at the time because of it’s highly limited nature, but now you can grab it once more. The slinky four-track EP has been re-pressed to wax by the Young Turks label, and it sounds entirely high-grade. The first steps of a major modern artist.

Adam Oko
Diet Of Germs

Some really apt record titles around at the moment the latest being this re-issue of a 2015 cassette by Adam Oko. We don't know too much about him other than this was released on the Astro:Dynamics label and features Kate Bush's nephew Raven Bush on Suketo. Otherwise it's all Oko's thing and is a lovely swirling 12" of jazzy electronica that could do with finding a wider audience.

Shackleton & Zimpel
Primal Forms

British producer Sam Shackleton continues his evolution from dubstep intricacy to electronica and jazz with Primal Forms, a collaboration with Polish clarinetist Wacław Zimpel. The musicians’ backgrounds could hardly be more different, but the result is an album of three tracks of wonderful, trance-like instrumentals. 

Hunter Complex
Dead Calm and Zero Degrees

Following up last year’s critically adored Open Sea, Dutch underground maestro Lars Meijer returns with his fourth Hunter Complex album. Born from the same creative burst as its predecessor, Dead Calm And Zero Degrees functions as a prequel of sorts - the closing notes are the same as those of Open Sea’s opener ‘Night City’.

Masayoshi Fujita & Jan Jelinek
Bird, Lake, Objects

A re-issue of Bird, Lake, Objects, a 2010 collaboration in minimalist electronica between percussionist Masayoshi Fujita and producer Jan Jelinek. The music seems to take the form of a conversation, Fujita and Jelinek dovetailing beautifully in creative terms but neither stealing the limelight from the other. 

DJ Koze
Knock Knock

Extremely weird dance music hermit DJ Koze has found the time between an inexplicable raft of Ibiza appearances to create Knock Knock. Featuring a raft of guests (Bon Iver, Róisín Murphy, Mano le Tough), the album is an array of sunshine-y bangers of all shapes and sizes.

Boards of Canada

Where were you in 1989? Personally, I wasn't born yet, but Warp Records were getting started in the People's Republic of South Yorkshire. One of the acts who helped define the ensuing three decades were Boards of Canada whose 1998 'Peel Session' is one of ten radio sessions being released by Warp to commemorate 30 years at the forefront of music.

ISAN
Nothing Picked and Placed Nowhere

77 minutes is a very long time but perhaps it is more enjoyable if it is spent in the company of British electronic duo ISAN. The project is part of Where It's At Is Where You Are's ongoing project to get acts to create 77 minute long pieces to raise money for Médecins Sans Frontières. ISAN's tone poems and electronic lullabies are perfect for such a project but if 77 minutes is too long for you they've also provided a 7 minute edit as well as a 77 second super edit for those really pushed for time.

Yves Tumor
Safe In The Hands of Love

Taking inspiration from trip-hop to jazz to the melancholy mourning of the synthesiser, the album expertly manoeuvres across genres.

Animistic Beliefs
Thief of Sanity

Standing in stark contrast to their strident political beliefs and terrifically unhinged live shows, Animistic Beliefs go in a rather different direction with their latest EP. A four-track effort titled Thief of Sanity, Xakalele and rbf.linh conjure up some irrepressibly sad soundscapes amid the drum machine workouts. 

Belbury Poly
The Gone Away

Ghost Box Records co-founder Jim Jupp releases another studio album under his Belbury Poly recording moniker. More downbeat and calm than many of his previous efforts, constructed from beautiful, flowing polyrhythms and vintage electronic instruments, The Gone Away centres around British fairytales and fantastical folklore.

Now, where have we heard that title from?

The project is produced by Anthoney Hart (aka (Basic Rhythm, Imaginary Forces) and it is his second work for Planet Mu following on from his 2018 debut 'Red, White & Zero'. 

Ulrich Schnauss
A Strangely Isolated Place

We certainly need some music that screams "don't worry, everything is going to be ok" with big soothing synths and comforting bass lines right now. One answer could be to revisit Ulrich Shnauss's back catalogue which often melds Boards of Canada-style electronics with towering melodies. A Strangely Isolated Place was his second album and since Schnauss has the rights to his back catalogue back, he's doing the decent thing and re-issuing them.

Ceramic Hello
The Absence Of A Canary

For all you out there who like a bit of vintage Canadian minimal synth music then check out this re-issue of Ceramic Hello's 1981 era opus entitled The Absence of a Canary.  It's one of those legendary records with a back story to die for  - this early day synth-pop was half made by Brett Wickens who went onto work with Peter Saville helping to create record sleeves for Joy Division and New Order amongst others.  

Rian Treanor
File Under UK Metaplasm

A key figure in the Leeds scene in recent years, producer Rian Treanor delivers an amped-up album of unmediated, knotty club-orientated dance for his second album on Planet Mu. File Under UK Metaplasm is rawer than last year’s debut Ataxia, though it contains the same kinds of unstable, complex rhythms and sharp production values. 

Rhythm & Sound
The Versions

Repress of Rhythm & Sound’s (Basic Channel) 2003 release The Versions. Kings of dub techno Moritz von Oswald and Mark Ernestus compiled the singles they did for Burial Mix, separating the vocals and leaving these instrumentals to do what they do best, wash over you with warm heady bass. LP on Burial Mix.

Waon-P
Waon-P

Waon-P is a new four-track EP on 12" vinyl released on The Trilogy Tapes from mysterious producer Waon-P. While it’s a brief experience, it’s also an engrossing one, combining bass music and techno influences with flurries of breakbeat and droning, ambient electronica, a perfect introduction to the artist.

Cutting Room
The Night Chemist

Aussie trio Cutting Room return with a ferocious EP of abstract techno, The Night Chemist. The EP creates a brooding atmosphere in which the dystopian ideas of J.G. Ballard are underpinned by machine-like macerated beats. Also included here is Esplendor Geométrico tearing apart the opening track ‘Always Rock’ with their distinctive remix style.

Conrad Schnitzler & Frank Bretschneider
Con-Struct

An album which sees Frank Bretschneider (a.k.a. Komet) interpreting the sounds of the late Conrad Schnitzler, one of the key figures in the German underground scene as a member of Tangerine Dream and Kluster, Con-Struct is a wonderful “merging of worlds”, in Bretschneider’s explanation. 

Conrad Schnitzler
Con

A re-issue on vinyl for Con, the 1978 collaboration album between Kluster founder Conrad Schnitzler and his Tangerine Dream colleague Peter Baumann in the Paragon Studio they had established together. It was among the final records to be made there, and didn’t really get the exposure it deserved due to Schnitzler’s reluctance to promote it. Perhaps that lack of exposure will change with this re-issue. 

Humanoid
Future: Turned

Humanoid (A Future Sound of London alias) expands on 2019’s Built LP with Future:Turned EP. This means more acidic 303 bass line experiments and unpredictable rhythms. The four tracks were produced by The Future Sound of London and engineered by Yage (which is a FSOL alias!). On Jumpin’ & Pumpin’.

Logic System
Venus

Hideki Matsutake was a busy man in 1981. He was in high demand in the Tokyo music scene for his keyboard programming skills which led him to work with Akiko Yano, YMO, Ryuichi Sakamoto and Mkwaju Ensemble. He also managed to record a couple of albums himself under the name Logic System. Venus was the second of those albums and saw Matsuake exploring funkier and more organic sounds than he did on its techno predecessor, Logic.

upsammy
Zoom

With her reputation burgeoning with two great EPs and a clutch of brilliant online remixes since she first emerged three years ago, Dutch musician Thessa Torsing releases her first full-length album as upsammy. Zoom manages to be both highly technical, most notably in the skeletal, twisting beat patterns she creates, and yet laid-back and beautiful in its overarching feel.

Prequel Tapes
Ruin

Producer and DJ Marco Freivogel discovered some old DAT tapes he made in his youth. These have become the basis of his work as Prequel Tapes, reconfigured using his individual his painstakingly assembled hardware set up. Ruin has a double meaning, depending on how you choose to view it - there’s the, perhaps more obvious, connections with darkness and decay or the chance of a new beginning and rebuilding. 

Scanner
An Ascent

Following a recent lockdown live show broadcast on YouTube, during which DiN label head Ian Boddy reached out to Scanner’s Robin Rimbaud, An Ascent is adapted from the improvised modular synth set that he performed. These nine new tracks showcase a uniquely talented British artist at his very best.

BRONSON
BRONSON

BRONSON is the new project from US electronic duo ODESZA and Golden Features, a producer from Sydney. Their self-titled debut is filled with instrumental tracks that flow with emotional power alongside cathartic vocal tunes. This is a departure from the norm for both acts. Includes guest appearances from British producer/DJ Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs and R&B singer Gallant. 

Darkstar
Civic Jams Remixes

Darkstar released their fourth album Civic Jams earlier this year and now it's time for the obligatory remix 12".

Suzanne Ciani
Music For Denali

A valuable exercise in archive-trawling here, with Finders Keepers’ exploration of some early work from American sound designer and composer Suzanne Ciani. Dating from 1973, Music For Denali is a soundtrack to a documentary about a skier’s descent from the peak of the tallest mountain in Alaska. 

Jamie xx
Idontknow

Acid Pauli
MOD

Recorded as a series of complete live takes, from which the best version would be selected, Martin Gretschmann’s third Acid Pauli studio album MOD sees him explore different instruments - namely, modular synthesisers. It’s experimental and left-field at times, but certainly not obscurantist or inaccessible.

Isolating
Perennial

Isolating is Stephen Hindman of The Golden Filter. His LP Perennial thematically takes inspiration from Aldous Huxley’s non-fiction work Perennial Philosophy.

Four Tet (Fourtet)
Pause

Pause was the breakthrough record from Four Tet aka Kieran Hebden who had previously released as part of post-rock group Fridge as well as his first Four Tet album Dialogue. It marks the beginning of his blending of acoustic and neo-classical instrumentation with electronica which would forge the folktronica movement of the early 2000s. Still one of the best records of its era.

Johnny Woods
Pavilions

Gently unfurling improvised synthesizer meditations from Johnny Woods, created on a Buchla 200e in his solar powered studio in the mountains of New Mexico. On the surface, these seemingly minimal seven pieces may appear simple but evolve into deeply immersive complex sonic fractals. Big tip for those that dig Caterina Barbieri, Alessandro Cortini, Laurie Spiegel and Kaitlyn Aurelia Smith.

Gajek
Vitamin D

The title of producer Matti Gajek’s latest album Vitamin D refers to the old East German practice of injecting newborn babies with high doses of the vitamin shortly after birth, something that happened to him as an infant. That sense of the legacy of disappeared, redundant worlds still echoing in the present is present throughout this meticulous record, full of beautiful digitally rendered soundscapes and haunting lyrical images.

Four Tet
Beautiful Rewind

Beautiful Rewind was the seventh album released by Four Tet (aka Kieran Hebden). It was (ahem) 'dropped' without any fanfare or trailers which led to an excitable reception particularly with lead track Kool FM which eventually found its way onto Grand Theft Auto. Elsewhere it's more reliable electronics from Hebden which expands on his previous There Is Love In You by moving his fluttering sample-based electronica into darker territories.  

Drexciya
Harnessed The Storm

One of the most revered techno acts of all time, Drexciya were mysterious, near anonymous and blended futuristic beat work with Afro influences resulting in a kind of underwater dance music. Harnessed the Storm was their second full length album and is one of their most intense works blending sci-fi influenced electro with uncompromising rhythms. Truly legendary.

First time on vinyl and remastered by Tangerine Dream collaborator Harald Pairits.
