Utopia Cloak
Marina Garden

Utopia Cloak debuts on Film Records (Brainwaltzera, Steve Reich) with an album of carefully constructed electronica. The six cuts that make up Marina Garden draw from a few subsets of electronic music. Influences from synthwave, ambient pop, bedroom instrumentals and contemporary classical composition are all to be found across the record. Overall the thing has a bit of a Bonobo flex.

Ensemble Economique
Radiate Through You

Brian Pyle is back  with another round of uneasy compositions for Denovali. You radiated through him on the last track of Light that Comes, Light that Goes and now it’s time to radiate through yourself. Or it’s time for him to radiate through you. With his music. Which wafts its gloomy way through ambient, chamber loops, shoegaze and the like.

DMX Krew
Stellar Gateway

That cover looks familiar, doesn’t it? Almost like the stellar gateway scene from - oh, right. I see. DMX Krew (the primary of Rephlex and Breakin’ Records resident Edward Upton’s many, many pseudonyms) brings you Stellar Gateway, his new EP of crisp and gently acidic electro-grooves. Slightly less terrifying and considerably funkier than its Kubrickian namesake.

Jacques Greene
Focus

Jacques Greene with his first official release since 2017’s Feel Infinite LP here. Focus is one half of the Fever Focus EP, a record that can be purchased as a whole or in separate parts. The three tracks of Focus find Greene once more exploring the club as a space for dreaming and escapism through a mixture of sounds drawn from post-dubstep, deep house and r&b.

Vester Koza
Loader Mither

Vester Koza drops his debut LP via Houndstooth. Loader Mither - that means ‘a load of bother’, by the way - is one of those singular-minded records that both celebrate and mourn British rave culture. Track titles like ‘my well crap car (mardy mix)’ suggest an album that doesn’t take itself too seriously, but then the track’s deft assemblage of halcyon synths and skittering drums indicate otherwise. It’s all very Aphex Twin.

Long Arm
Darkly

‘Darkly’ centres around the piano. It’s what initially spurred Long Arm to create the record, a way of tackling and exploring the parameters of the instrument. However, what’s emerged out of this idea isn’t some stripped back affair, it’s a record that does focus on that instrument, but over the run-time the sound is intruded upon by myriad others. The double LP comes out via the Berlin-based label Project Mooncircle.

Murcof
Lost In Time

Fernando Corona is Murcof, a Mexican electronica artist who has gradually scaled back the beats in favour of samples and inspiration taken from modern classical music. Lost In Time intersects with the film of the same name, and uses aspects of the Goldberg Variations in order to create a deep and powerful new work. Released by Glacial Movements.

Matt Robertson
Entology

You may not know the name but this man has worked with Björk, Cinematic Orchestra, Anohni and Bat For Lashes amongst others so he has quite a pedigree. His earlier album In Echelon was described as Nils Frahm meets Jon Hopkins which will hopefully whet your appetite for this his second batch of electronic and classical soundscapes.

Umwelt / Ryan James Ford
Untitled

Two sides of club-ready tools from Repitch Recordings. On Untitled they've got two tracks a piece from New Flesh / Rave Or Die's Umwelt and Ryan James Ford. Value! Umwelt's pair fall on the grittier electro/acid spectrum, while Ford's are a more modern: sleek and with drone. It's got to be good, one of them's Berlin based!

The Lotus Eaters
Desatura

Please be very very careful. This is not the 1980s Lotus Eaters famous for their 'First Picture of You' single. Instead these are two techno artists Lucy and Rrose. Here the two step away from the usual techno instrumentation and use synthesized sound and feedback to generate both textural and percussive elements to their music.  

Andrew Weatherall
Qualia

Andrew Weatherall is back already for another album, which means the less danceable Andy is out to play. Well, that's how the press release made it sound anyway; the previews tell a different story. Hoga Nord provide hosting duties this time, bringing his latest soothing, major-key opus to wax, complete with its references to such opposing poles as Kraftwerk and the entire European classical tradition. It's a real Moby Dick and Captain Ahab story.

Sofheso
Sofheso Archive

Over two hours of prolific Japanese producer Sofheso's recordings have been collated onto this deluxe archival double cassette retrospective, spanning the years 2014-2017. The selection was whittled down from eleven hours of material he sent the First Terrace label and is a revelatory showcase of the artist's unorthodox approach and singular vision of techno in its varying mutations and permutations. His original rhythmic architecture and fresh approach to texture creates complex sound sculptures that are a pleasure to wander inside as well as view from a distance.

System
Plus

For their new album Plus, Danish tinkerer trio System (Thomas Knak, Anders “Dub Tractor” Remmer and Jesper Skaaning) spent a couple of years turning sensitive arpeggibro keyboardist Nils Frahm’s source material into something likable. Various iterations of incandescent ambience, elegantly sculpted around damp and clicky digital processes, ensue.

Deena Abdelwahed
Khonnar

Deena Abdelwahed has her roots in the Tunisian alternative music scene. She went on to DJ everywhere around the world, including Boiler Room and Concrete. She has an EP under her belt which centred on club music. She has changed gear somewhat for her debut album, Khonnar, which is an atmospheric work, centering on introspection. Limited edition deluxe LP with poster on Infine.

Oberman Knocks
Trilate Shift

Ask not for whom the Oberman Knocks - he knocks for thee. The Mancunian electronic musician drops Trilate Shift, his third LP for Andrea Parker’s Aperture (T.e.s.o., Broken Bone). This album picks up where the previous two left off, all hissing electronic faunae and bone-rattling digital distortion. Muslimgauze, Modeselektor and Prurient all spring to mind.

Spectral Empire
Iron Muscle

Iron Muscle by Spectral Empire comes across like a lost soundtrack to a dystopian sci-fi movie from the ‘80s. Dark, spooky synths interlaced with demonic electronic stabs and dramatic, tension-building beats. The duo are made up of George Thompson from Black Merlin and Kyle Martin from Vactrol Park. 180g vinyl 12” EP on Malka Tuti.

PSSU
PSSU

You could have put money on this happening soon as Daniel Avery and Richard Fearless started working out of adjacent units in Leamouth studio. PSSU’s eponymous debut release finds Avery and Fearless combining their powers for the forces of good. Good techno, that is. While ‘307309’ is a psychedelic electro escapade, ‘Fabricated From Steel’ is droney and doomy.

B12
Time Tourist (Expanded Edition)

A classic of Warp’s golden era, B12’s 1996 album Time Tourist gets a landmark twenty-second anniversary reissue, including a few newly-unearthed alt versions for posterity. Michael Golding’s and Steve Rutter’s glistening, FM pad-drenched ambient IDM went all-in on the retrofuturistic sci-fi narratives for this one, topped off as they are with referential titles and Trevor Webb’s massive painted cover art. Excellent.

Chris Watson
Locations, Processed (Blue TB7 Series)

Chris Watson probably has the coolest CV of the original post-punk scene. Starting out as one of the founding members of Cabaret Voltaire, he has since become one of the world's premier recorders of nature, helping create meaningful soundscapes for David Attenborough's documentaries. On Locations, Processed he combines these practices, creating an audio odyssey using The Moog Sound Lab’s System 55 to celebrate the legendary Bob Moog.

mmph
Serenade

Last April came mmph’s debut EP Dear God. Now the young musician, aka LA-based Sae Heum Han, follows it up with Serenade and a view of what else is on his wall. This newun shows a continued interest in wild dynamics, dense, flitting sound design and melodramatic flourishes of choir, cinematic bass and heavy percussion. If Xiu Xiu made IDM it might come out something like this.

Ai Messiah
Sentience & Sapience

Touch Sensitive (Barry Lynn, Autumns) get spooked by how near the singularity is and decide to drop a record that imagines a totally assimilated future. AI Messiah’s sound is a digi-psychedlia of drones, ambiences, tape loops and processed guitars. Boundaries between organic and synthetic are purposely deconstructed on Sentience And Sapience, an album of Boards Of Canada-style electronica that balances the beautiful and the dystopian to good effect.

Hugo Massein
Remnants / London Underground 2014 - 16

Six tracks Hugo Massein produced back in 2014-2016, during the peak years of the deep tech scene in London. Massein has been a key player in the scene and Remnants / London Underground now offers us the opportunity to hear some of his most creative and varied work in the genre. Released on Keysound Recordings.

Geotic
Traversa

Blissful indie-techno producer Geotic, alias of Will Wiesenfield (better-known as Baths), with another album packed with soulful and warm beats. Geotic's albums so far have contained dance music for dancing by yourself, for staring out of train windows: dance for when you're okay with being by yourself. And based on first single Gondolier, Traversa will continue that trend.

The Gasman
Controlled Hallucination

Busy bee Christopher Adam “The Gasman” Reeves drops his nineteenth album - his second with English label Onomatopoeia - the reassuringly-titled Controlled Hallucination. The lush, 80s style of Aeriform rather gives way to a bit of a melting pot this time around, ranging from dancefloor stuff (‘New Chair’) to cheeky, Plaid-esque melodic IDM (‘flash 7’)

Venetian Snares x Daniel Lanois
Venetian Snares x Daniel Lanois

Well I would never have put them two together but it is definitely the former U2 and Bob Dylan producer collabing with breakcore nutcase Aaron Funk of Venetian Snares. Both are, though, Canadian and those lads stick together. Funk did the drums whilst Lanois added pedal steel and weaved the unlikely sounds together. Sure to be one of the most unique records of 2018. Looking forward to hearing the snappily titled 'HpShk5050 P127'.

Michele Mercure
Beside Herself

RVNG Intl collects some of Michel Mercure’s early minimal synth and experimental electronics compositions. All of the tunes that make up Beside Herself were initially issued on cassettes self-released by Mercure between 1983 and 1990. These lo-fi ditties will appeal to fans of Pauline Anna Storm and The Nightcrawlers.

Reto A Ichi (aka Prefuse 73)
The Lapse Of The Exchange / Alone Moving Often

Who is this new kid on the block? Guess again! It’s none other than Mr. Prefuse 73 himself, Guillermo Herren. Can’t refuse the Prefuse. Here we have a double-album narrative that begins in Manhattan’s Chinatown and is driven by the foulness of city life out into the peaceful sticks. Lots of intricate, Prefuse-esque melodies and sample-slicery to enjoy.

Yoshinori Hayashi
Ambivalence

Transcending genres like Nosaj Thing on a detuned bicycle, Japanese producer Yosinori Hayashi’s debut album is a collage of bongo breakbeats, forlorn jazz samples, and wobbly synthesizers. Ambivalence. We'll say it reminds of ill-maintained carnival ride and of undiscovered Boards of Canada b-sides, but a little stranger.

Max Graef
Lo Siento Mucho Pero No Hablo Tu Idioma

Berliner, Max Graef, returns four years after his highly-rated debut Rivers Of The Red Planet with Lo Siento Mucho Pero No Hablo Tu Idioma - or I’m Very Sorry But I Don’t Speak Your Language, as my basic Spanish leads me to understand. Graef says of the record that it he approached it in an unmusical way - more experimental than its predecessor in terms of instrumentation and recording venues. Double LP on Tartelet.

Maxxxbass
Gone Fishing

Long Island Electrical Systems aka L.I.E.S. love a bit of obfuscation, and this latest LP from Maxxx Bass has heaps of it. The strange cover, the lack of track titles and the obtuse, drifting sonics within Gone Fishing will have been music to label-boss Ron Morelli’s ears. That said, this is not an unwelcoming record from an artist who has previously released on L.I.E.S. through his group KWC 92. Found sound, FM electronics, synth choirs and gentle flutes all bob in the stream of this nine-part affair. The overall effect lands somewhere between Fennesz and a wordless Panda Bear.

Fernando
s/t

Spooky electro from the Brooklyn based experimental electronic music label L.I.E.S.. Fernando takes the long stagnant genre and twists it into something that feels new. There's a touch of the hauntological about these tracks too, as though Fernando has had to dig them up and rescue each one.

E-Talking / Laksa
Blue 04

E-Talking and Laksa contribute a track each to the latest entry of Whities’ Blue series (BFTT, Lanark Artefax). ‘Telephone Rose’ may be E-Talking’s solo debut (they’re active as part of French duo Nummer) but the aesthetic is remarkably fully-formed here. The tune oscillates between cavernous big-room techno and trippy samples to hypnotic effect. On the flip Laksa brings some soundsystem heat similar to his recent drops for Ilian Tape.

BEAST
Ens

Beast is Koen Holtkamp, who is also known as one half of Mountains with Brendan Angeregg. Ens sees Holtkamp making more tightly constructed compositions, compared with his previous sprawling explorations. The album was made as Holtkamp’s partner was expecting, then having their first child and the experience plays out in the heartfelt music, some grounded and some more for the clouds. LP and CD on Thrill Jockey.

Incantations For Tape

Hard as it is to believe, there was a time when pitch wobble, reversed recordings, noise and abstract bleeps and bloops were truly surprising and groundbreaking things to hear in musical recordings. Sound Miracle offers a polite introduction to a few of the boffins and weirdos who were hard at work developing these (and many other) techniques when they first became possible at all. Though space wasn’t found for Halim El-Dabh or electroacoustic poster boy himself Pierre Schaeffer, the compilation is bursting with such other pioneers as Daphne Oram, Bülent Arel and György Ligeti.

Lia Mice
The Sampler As A Time Machine

Glasgow’s Optimo bring you Aussie-born London artist Lia Mice, whose album The Sampler as a Time Machine has to do with the temporal effects of rearranging and manipulating recorded sound. Is Lia a time-traveller from the 1940s? Either way, Walter Benjamin would be delighted by this album of time-twisting leftfield pop, led by gnarled bass, repitched vocal textures and fluttering electro.
  • Genre(s):

Public Memory
Demolition

The sophomore LP from Public Memory arrives courtesy of Felte (Soviet Soviet, Autobahn). Demolition is a brooding and abrasive listen that recalls that period in the '90s when hip-hop started morphing into all sorts of strange new styles. Trip-hop, Krautrock and the paranoid plunderphonics of early DJ Shadow all exert a strong influence on these eight tunes.
  • Genre(s):
  • Electronic / Electro / IDM / EBM

Colin Potter
Rank Sonata

Colin Potter has been orbiting the centre of the UK underground music scene(s) for his whole career, as a member of Nurse With Wound and Current 93 and through a stack of other collaborations. Rank Sonata is a fully solo work however, and finds Potter wandering his electronics down dreamy ambient pathways. On Hallow Ground.

London Modular Alliance
Wireless

London Modular Alliance is a silly name, but at least it’s factually watertight. The group formed around the London synth emporium London Modular, and all of their tracks are born from hardware jams. It’ll come as no surprise that the cuts on Wireless are dense, slightly sinister numbers that sound very expensive. Will appeal to people who’ve been enjoying anything that CPU have done of late.
  • Genre(s):
  • Electronic / Electro / IDM / EBM

Ratgrave
Ratgrave

Ratgrave is the new project from Julius Conrad and Max Graef. From squelchy electro-funk to smooth, chilled vibes via some more erratic beats, this album has everything you want for a good night in or out. It was recorded over a three year period in three different locations, although they are keen to point out that they were all on terra firma, and we can only assume that this informed the record’s final outcome. Ludwig L lends additional EFX to the album. LP on Apron.

Moscow Youth Cult
Lux

Dance crew Moscow Youth Cult return after two years with Lux, which seeks to take apart pop music and reconstruct it from its discombobulated parts. It's a nostalgic and heavily influenced work, but it's too propulsive for that to be a problem in the moment: just go with it, won't you?
  • Genre(s):
  • Electronic / Electro / IDM / EBM

Karlheinz Stockhausen
Adventures In Sound

Karlheinz Stockhausen is an artist that every music lover should give a go at least once in their life. The German composer’s theories about everything from form to notation to sound itself revolutionised art music in post-war Europe. In one way or another his work has influenced pretty much genre to come after him. Worth a listen, then, and this new compilation Adventures In Sound provides a good way into the composer's ouevre.

Sone Institute
Where Moth and Rust Consume

The first Sone Institute work in six years finds itself Where Moth and Rust Consume. What possessed Roman Bezdyk to make an album about our Phil’s wardrobe we may never know. Returning nonetheless to ol’ pals Front & Follow for their new release series, the Institute presents an album of leftfield trip-pop and charming/unsettling mid-fi atmospheres.

Bendik Giske
Adjust

Oslo artist Bendik Giske here articulates the music, narratives and musical narratives of club culture using little more than a saxophone. If it sounds a bit strange it’s because it is, but Giske’s highly focused and expressive project is also very compelling and gorgeous. Comes armed with remixes and reinterpretations by the motley crew of Total Freedom, Lotic, Deathprod and Rezzett.
  • Genre(s):

Beacon
Gravity Pairs

The duo that is Beacon have changed it up a little from their previous two albums, setting out to create songs from moment one rather than focusing on loop-driven compositions. So should we say Beacon have gone pop? Well, perhaps a bit, but that would be to undermine the impressive attention to detail that has gone into the sound and textures of Gravity Pairs’ tracks. On Ghostly.

Richard Devine
SortLave

Richard Devine returns after six years with his new album Sort/Lave. It sees the Atlanta, Georgia-based electronics whizz throwing up opposing textures using his custom built modular system. The pieces flit between sandpapery percussion and glorious ambience. The album was conceived and recorded over the last two years. Triple LP or CD on Timesig, a Venetian Snares imprint.

Sowas Von Egal: German Synth Wave Underground 1980-1985

The excellent Hamburg-based label Bureau B have unearthed more rare synth gems, to compile: Sowas Von Egal: German Synth Wave Underground 1980-1985. Not your typical '80s synth comp; this collaboration with the Damaged Goods party DJs has brought to light some remarkable, seldom heard music  ranging from post punk and synth wave -- all originally released in very small quantities, often by the bands themselves and sold at their gigs -- all pressed in the first half of the 1980s. Available as an LP or on shiny new CD.

Harmonious Thelonious is the electronic outlet for Dusseldorfer Stefan Schwander, which he uses to explore both African and American minimalism, while always keeping that sweet sweet danceability to the fore. Full-length Petrolia is particularly high energy, with especially tasty live-instrument contributions from Ghazi Barakat. Its out on Marmo Music.

Their 50 years as pioneering electronic sound-makers, known for the original Dr. Who theme and who have counted Delia Derbyshire among their number, are the perfect fit for Holness’ weird vision. 6 panel digipak CD on Room 13.

Keir Vine
Instance

London’s Trestle Records (City Shepherd, Adam Coney) drop a record from famed keyboardist/hang player Keir Vine. The Instance EP is rather different to the plush post-jazz that Vine dishes up as part of Portico Quartet. These eight tracks are built around droning church organs, field recordings, found sounds and little snippets of piano. They've got a bit of a Ghost Box flavour to it. It all adds up to a really nice listen.

Eric Copeland
Trogg Modal Vol. 1

Eric Copeland - he of Black Dice fame - turns in a record of bleep-bloop goodness for DFA. The first volume of his Trogg Modal series finds Copeland exploring the freakbeat club sound that he locked into on 2017 full-length Goofballs. Fusing lo-fi techno, Balearic house, minimal synth beat and … generally weird shit, Copeland has come through with another befuddling yet beguiling LP here.

Thighpaulsandra
The Lepore Extrusion

Originally released on a limited run by Brainwashed Recordings in 2006, Thighpaulsandra’s The Lepore Extrusion gets reissued by Klanggalerie.(Konstruktivists, Nurse With Wound). It’s a typically unusual work from the Coil/Julian Cope collaborator, with main affair ‘The Leport Extrusion’ a single piece that shifts between spacey drones and vocal-led concrete ala Karlheinz Stockhausen. This new pressing comes with a bonus track.

The 15 Dead Minutes
Bio-Evolved

It's been a wee while since we last heard from The 15 Dead Minutes aka David Froud (Heuristic Audio) and David Campbell (Delinquent Dialect). Their collaborative work first appeared on Irish label Trensmat and later on Sunil Sharpe's Earwiggle imprint. Now the duo return with an ace four-track EP of seething and infectious cuts blurring the lines between techno/electro/industrial. All tracks bang and rattle in all the right places and are heavy in terms of both sound and emotion. Only 300 copies with killer artwork by Yamako King.

Ultrafog
How Those Fires Burned That Are No Longer

Kouhei Fukuzumi has released a couple of cassettes for Japanese label Solitude Solutions and Spain's Angoisse imprint and now makes his vinyl debut as Utlrafog on Los Angeles' excellent Motion Ward label -- their previous release was an ace from uon (West Mineral Ltd.) 'How Those Fires Burned That Are No Longer' runs the duration of a mini-album, and is pure bliss from the off - with the torch song like ambient of opener 'Swallow', the more zoned and trippy 'OIO', and dreamy droner 'Golden Tundra'. On the flipside the beautifully majestic 'Trace' precedes the fluttering tropical Fourth World ambient of 'Scent' before 'Cependant' has us riding the skies. Tip for fans of uon, Space Afrika, GAS, Huerco S. etc.

Steven Julien
8 Ball

Steven Julien has taken a break from his Funkineven moniker of late to release a few records under his given name. 8 Ball grows the lo-fi boogie style of April’s Bloodline mini-album. While ‘TEER’ is a luscious jam inspired by ‘80s electro and synth-funk, A-sides ‘BLK808’ and ‘POT808’ are both tough drum machine workouts that would sound at home on labels like Central Processing Unit and Super Rhythm Trax.

Hintermass
The Apple Tree

Hintermass is the duo project of The Advisory Circle’s Jon Brooks and Tim Felton of Broadcast. In appropriate Ghost Box style, they slink around they combine sweet melodic song with uncanny electronic touches: komische was a particularly strong influence here. The Apple Tree, their first album in 5 years, is out on Ghost Box.

Aphex Twin
Selected Ambient Works 85-92

Not sure that you need us to introduce this one to you. The album that broke Aphex Twin to the masses (relatively speaking), Selected Ambient Works 85-92 starts with two genuinely sublime pieces of music, ‘Xtal’ and ‘Tha’, which your collection literally cannot be without. The whole thing is great though, whether for solo listening late at night or for esoteric dancefloors. An absolute classic.

Kostis Kilymis
Second Saturation

A fresh new Tapeworm, plucked from the ground. And what does it contain? Why, two sides of exciting materials from Kostis Kilymis of course! The work presented here is grown out of a Stockholm live performance and some sweetly detailed field recordings, all treated and processed by various means, some of them pleasingly dubby. Second Saturation is a tape on The Tapeworm.

Zeno van den Broek
Entrop

Cassette label The Tapeworm have been running a tidy racket for almost a decade now. Since 2009 the London label has released great little tapes from the likes of Stephen O’Malley and Derek Jarman. Their 111th release (very satisfying, that) comes courtesy of Dutch composer/sound-artist Zeno van den Broek. To create Entrop, van den Broek built a synth, modded it with feedback loops and set it to trigger percussive sounds on a drum computer. The musical results bridge noise, music concrete and IDM.

François Bayle
Electrucs!

Love those classic French electroacoustic composers? Well then you’ll want this selection from the archives of Francois Bayle, picked out from previously unreleased material by the boy Bayle himself. Pieces include a AKS Synthi track and a Bernard Parmegiani tribute, and you can expect plenty of wild tones, textures and juxtapositions from the enthusiastically-titled Electrucs!.

D.A.F.
DAS IST DAF

Gabi Delgado and Robert Görl fronted Deutsch Amerikanische Freundschaft (D.A.F.) were an experimental electronic/electro/industrial group active from 1979 until the late 80s, proclaiming they had fulfilled the concept. For fans of Kraftwerk, Laibach etc. this collection houses four albums with a bonus vinyl of remixes (including Boys Noize and Giorgio Moroder) as well as two unreleased tracks, and a load of goodies.

Joep Beving
Conatus

Conatus: in which Joep Beving hands over pieces of his contemporary classical music to various artists for reworking. With Deutsche Grammophon as the label, and a list of contributing artists that includes Suzanne Ciani(!), you won’t be surprised to hear that the quality of Conatus’s material is very high indeed.

Peter Gordon
Eighteen

Peter Gordon’s first LP in three years arrives courtesy of Foom (Rhys Chatham, Peter Zummo). On Eighteen Gordon is ably assisted by Gabe Guernsey (Factory Floor), Larry Saltzman (Arthur Russell) and Paul Nowinski (LOLO) here. The group craft instrumentals of autumnal beauty that are at once too woozy to be dance music, too silvery to be r&b, and too synthetic to be soul. They are what they are, and they are beautiful.

Belia Winnewisser
Radikale Akzeptanz

Radikale Akzeptanz is the first release of Belia Winnewisser as a solo artist, and it beautifully marries together her synth-pop experience in bands with her sound art practice. So the tunes are there, as are the sturdy beats and rhythms in places, but also more unexpected textures, tones, and structures. An exciting mix. On Präsens Editionen.

EOC
The Path of Untitled Memories

The promising Mirae Arts with their third release here. This one’s courtesy of Katsunori Sawa’s EOC (Enormous O’Clock) project. The Path of Untitled Memories represents a change of pace for Mirae Arts. Whereas previous drops from Seraphim Rytm and Michiru Aoyama have been largely or wholly ambient works, The Path Of Untitled Memories is a no-BS body-techno affair that nods to the Echochord school.

Grupo Controle Digital
A Festa E Nossa

Remaster of the only album from sleek Brazilian electronic funk duo Grupo Controle Digital. Sadly, one of the members Gel Valiery, died young, leading to the end of the band. His bandmate, Billy Jaguar, became a priest, but was tracked down by DJ Millos Kaiser in order to secure permission to use their tracks. 

Saloli
The Deep End

The Year Zero for Mary Sutton’s debut LP as Saloli was a performance at a clothing-optional soaking-pool sauna. In attempting to make music for people relaxing in hot bubbly water, Sutton came up with these sounds of warm, tranquil beauty. The generative point of The Deep End encourages comparisons with Yamaneko’s Spa Commissions, but the sounds here lean more towards the New Age reissues of Seance Centre. Out via Kranky (Tim Hecker, Dedekind Cut).

Diaster
Clustered Non Symmetry

Diaster are an Italian duo working with electronics of various sorts: from musique concrete and academic electronic music to techno, D&B, and other musics of the club. It's a winning combination of course, and new album Clustered Non Symmetry is eight tracks of stark, minimal, propulsive sound. Out on the Aperture label.

Autarkic
Treble Rebel

Rich, zany club tunes from Tel Aviv’s Autarkic, which looks like what a parrot might say if it heard the word ‘Autechre’ once. It does not, however, sound like anything of the sort. The style going on here is a rather meaty, flexible production filled with cheeky sampling and well-paced workout rhythms.

Heinali
Iridescent

A new full-length album from busy Ukrainian sound-worker Oleg Shpudeiko, aka Heinali. Iridescent is mostly crafted out of modular synth improvisations, some of which are then reworked and re-ordered to created the finished pieces we hear here. Sometimes deep in ambient drifts, and sometimes pumping beats, this material is always strong for those who like some electronic adventure.

Extrawelt
Unknown

Unclassifiable production duo and lifelong friends Arne Schaffhausen and Wayne Raabe having been concocting sounds together for twenty years. They have recorded ten albums together, however, Unknown is their fourth under the Extrawelt moniker. It’s electronic music, but then there’s other stuff in there as well, so don’t pigeon hole them. Triple LP or CD on Cocoon.

Kyle Dixon & Michael Stein
Stranger Things: Halloween Sounds From The Upside Down (A Netflix Original Series Soundtrack)

Stranger Things. You like it. We like it. Everyone likes it. Netflix’s answer to Twin Peaks often throws in a fair dose of spook to up the ante. With Halloween just around the corner the series’ music directors Kyle Dixon & Michael Stein have compiled 14 of their creepiest compositions for Stranger Things: Halloween Sounds From The Upside Down. They may also mean ‘Halloween Sounds’ in the sense that this record owes quite a debt to John Carpenter.

J.O.S
Ultra

I'd probably have a word with my record label is they sent out a press release saying I fondled synths, but then I'm not J.Ö.S. aka Johan Öhman Sollin. On Ultra, the Swede channels the boring bleakness of Scandinavian winters into sci-fi soundtrack style compositions that bring to mind James Ferraro and Oneohtrix Point Never's early stuff.

Aphex Twin
Computer Controlled Acoustic Instruments pt2 EP

Available on 12” Vinyl and CD. After Syro, the first material from Richard D. James under his Aphex Twin moniker in 13 years, dropped near the end of 2014, I think most of us hoped that it wasn’t going to be an equally long wait. James says he’s been making computers play real instruments for years, designing and contracting people to build his manic contraptions. Of course, being Aphex Twin, the title could be a complete misnomer.

The Bedroom Tapes

The  Minimal Wave label present yet another stellar collection of minimal wave artists taken from around the world, and in this case recorded mainly on 4-track recorders in, yep, their bedrooms. Covering 1980 to 1991 it features tracks from Disque Omo, Unovidual, Aural Difference, Arvid Tuba,  Perfect Mother, and many more. Limited copies.

Tangent
Approaching Complexity

The Netherlands duo of Ralph van Reijendam and Robbert Kok bring us their fourth album together as Tangent. Their sky-gazing ambience and gently unfurling beats have graced releases on Tympanik Audio and now n5MD (following 2016's "Collapsing Horizons" LP, a beautifully effective blend of dubby ambient and glitchy IDM styles) give us "Approaching Complexity". We continue to follow and enjoy their artistic development and their relationships with the world around us, now with recurring piano themes. Sounds like a winner. Available as a limited edition 180-gram orange vinyl LP or CD, on n5MD.

Joan Bibiloni
El Sur

El Sur is a premium example of the jazz-ambient-fusion-synth-experimentalist-groove sound produced by Joan Bibiloni during the 1980’s. He set up his own label, Blau, to showcase both his own work and the work of others across the Balearic islands, and this was one of the jewels in the Blau crown. Reissue LP with an evocative sleeve, on Music From Memory.

Herbert Bodzin
Revival II - The Electronic Tapes 1979-1982

The Artless Cuckoo label follow up their collection of Herbert Bodzin's archived jazz-rock and fusion stylings on 'Revival' with Revival II - The Electronic Tapes 1979-1982. All the music  is previously unreleased and the recordings reflect his preoccupation at that time with electronics: analog and modular synths such as the ARP 2600, Korg PS-3300 and Roland System-700. The set is made up of ambient, psychedelic and experimental sounds with Bodzin's two sons Stephan and Oliver as well as Bernd Hollendiek lending extra synths and drums. The record should happily nestle somewhere amongst Tangerine Dream, Klaus Schulze and Cluster in the collections of synth lovers and Krautrock fans. A finally-retrieved document of German electronic music. Limited edition of 500 copies.

Various (Overlook, Pessimist, Mønic, Grebenstein)
Themes & Variations

Mønic’s Osiris Music (Kryptic Minds, Kamikaze Space Programme) drop four tracks that map out some different kinds of weightiness currently popular in the clubsphere. Overlook continues to impress with the nightmarish D n’ B of ‘Former Self’; Pessimist’s ‘Indigo’ is an eerie bit of soundsystem techno that would sound great soundtracking an episode of Black Mirror. The flipside sees the label boss deliver two wedges of dark, dubby almost-techno, the second of which is a Grebenstein collaboration.

Morgan Fisher
Inside Satie

Morgan Fisher has had quite the career. Having been about for 50 odd years, Fisher was with the one hit wonders Love Affair in the ‘60s, moving onto Mott The Hoople and then into ambient and soundtracks with Yoko Ono among others. It is Fisher’s admiration of Erik Satie that inspired Inside Satie - an album of charming improvisations and surreal experimentations. Something Satie himself would have been proud of.  

Maelstrom
Fragment

More electro from the Central Processing Unit label. This time it's from Maelstrom, who returns to the label after July 2018's ECZO, with the four-track EP Fragment. The bass is as tough as you might expect, and I think I detect a hint of acid? I'm no expert. Most impressively Maelstrom is not afraid to vary tempos over the EP so Fragment will have something for every DJ.

Shlohmo
Vacation

Shlohmo’s 2012 EP Vacation has been long gone for a long time, but Mr Shlo has kindly taken pity on those who missed out with this new repress, on the Friends of Friends label. Vacation includes three original tracks, as well as four remixes of other artists in an LA Beat Scene style, including Airhead and Nicolas Jaar. Pick it up this time!

CUTS
A Slow Decay

CUTS’ new 12” A Slow Decay delivers on the promise of the two Exist EPs with one more appetite-whetter before his debut full-length A Gradual Decline lands. A Slow Decay, taken from that record, shows off a deep, icy spaciousness that sometimes drifts and sometimes explodes. Plus two exclusive B-side tracks.

The Orb
History Of The Future Part 2

Available on double CD or as a boxset with 3 CDs and DVD on Malicious Damage. Having announced a new album due in 2015, The Orb have released two retrospective compilations their work up until now. Including only released on vinyl tunes and unreleased video footage on the DVD, as well as completely unreleased songs "Baghdad Batteries Launch Night" and "Jam On Your Honey".

Matthew Dear
Bunny

Dear Matthew, thanks for releasing a new album. I don't know what it sounds like yet. I'm told that it's kinda moody and ominous which would certainly offset the fact that it's named Bunny, because rabbits are incredibly cute. I've also heard that Tegan and Sara feature on a track, which is easily the best news I've had all year. I'm sure this record will speak to your need to make a myriad different sounds all the time and in good avant-pop ways. Thanks XOX Norman.

Tangerine Dream
The Pink Years Albums 1970-1973

Tangerine Dream’s first four records are yoked together for a reissue by the Esoteric sub-label Reactive. Not too much more to say about the quartet of LPs that make up The Pink Years: Albums 1970 - 1973. People went cuckoo for the forward-thinking Kraut-tronics of Electronic Meditation, Alpha Centauri, Zeit and Atem back in the day. This package, containing for CDs and a poster in a nice little box, is a good way to bring them back into your life.

The Future Sound Of London
Archived 9

Jumpin' & Pumpin' follow 'Archived 8' with -- you guessed it -- the ninth volume in their ongoing series of unreleased music from the apparently inexhaustible Future Sound Of London archive. 'Archived 9' brings together another dozen tracks, some of which have been reconstructed and embellished upon and mixed to complete a new album of work in its own right, worthy of sitting next to 'Lifeforms' or 'ISDN'. Archived 9 is available on CD.

David August
D'Angelo

David August has always felt an affinity to the parts of him that came from Palestrina in Italy. On D'Angelo he takes his first steps in exploring this feeling in public. Recorded in Italy (by necessity), the album is a muscular mixture of Balearic pop and darker sounds of the noir soundtrack.

Phono Ghosts
Photons In Fashion

So what Blackpool’s Phono Ghosts does is sample some tapes, run them through an audio workstation on his computer, then chop them up and reassemble them to form new shapes. The resulting tracks that make up Photons In Fashion are a hypnagogic re-rendering of ‘80s synth sounds. As in - Vaporwave. That said, the way that this set of ‘wave jams layers up its vocals is a tad more psychedelic than your Macintosh Pluses and your James Ferraro’s.

Siavash Amini
Foras

Siavash Amini's rain-textured drone has wowed us ever since What the Wind Whispered to the Trees, where neutral environmental grounds found vulnerable, almost songwritten ambience. Foras is his sixth solo record in as many years and sees him continue to traverse these liminal spaces, considering the very way our surroundings lead our emotions, considering architecture as psychology. You must cop this.

GAIKA
BASIC VOLUME

Gaika has been threatening a masterpiece for a while now. In his debut LP BASIC VOLUME he might just have made it. Over the fifteen tracks here he weaves together far-flung musical legacies - D’Angelo, Future, Popcaan and Arca are all discernable influences - into a record of dark potency. Dre Skull, Sophie and Jam City are among an impressive list of co-producers.

Space
The Best of Space

For a moment I thought that Phil had lost his mind but no, this is not the 'best' of the Female of the Species Liverpool band but the original Space - a kind of prototype Daft Punk. Their big hit was 'Magic Fly', an otherworldly tune which summed up their cosmic/disco/synth combination. But there was loads more where that came from and this collection compiles the best bits from their four ahead-of-their-time albums.

Mikhail Chekalin
Ecstatic Lullaby

Works dating from 1978 to 1987 are represented here on this collection of material by Russian electronic musician Mikhail Chekalin. Though made in a Soviet context, the tracks on Ecstatic Lullaby feel like they were participating in a wider conversation, with proto-ambient, large electronic compositions and industrial synth-pop all represented here. Double LP compilation by Gost Zvuk.

James Holden + Maalem Houssam Guinia
Three Live Takes

What a combo: Maalem Houssam Guinia and James Holden; Moroccan Gnawa and modular synth. Three Live Takes presents us with three live cuts from a 2016 London performance, with these two very different sound palettes somehow combining into a coherent new sound-world. 12” out on Border Community.

Colin Self
Siblings

RVNG Intl. brings you New York / Berlin artist Colin Self’s sixth and ultimate chapter in his Elation opera series. As you might expect from a pop opera, it’s conceptual, richly detailed and highly nuanced. It also features plenty of good singing. The main idea is that of familial closeness and kinship arising from mutual curiosity and care rather than biological association. Uplifting stuff.

A Certain Ratio
Up In Downsville

A Certain Ratio AKA ACR AKA "Joy Division with better clothes" were a Manchester post-punk band who mixed elements of funk, disco and dub into their sound. Up In Downsville was their seventh album and was originally released on Rob’s Records (a label owned by Joy Division manager, Rob Gretton) in 1992. This reissue comes courtesy of Mute and is available on light blue coloured double vinyl LP and CD.

Patina Echoes

Patina Echoes is a compilation that sees the Timedance label giving the kids a run out, or showcasing new talent at least. Simo Cell, Metrist, Cleyra, Neinzer, Rae, Via Maris, Nico and Neinzer are among the fresh new acts to feature. Although compiled from different artists, the album is sequenced to be a coherent work in its own right. Double LP on Timedance.
