Alan Vega
Alan Vega

As one half of electro-punk pioneers Suicide, Alan Vega deconstructed punk and was central to the birth of post-punk, new wave and most that followed. On the side he worked on his solo efforts, focusing more on rock and roll and rockabilly, stripping it and pulling it apart. Not re-pressed since the 1980s, comes with a huge A1 screen-printed poster and notes from Henry Rollins.

White Ring
Gate Of Grief

White Ring came up during that brief phase in the late 2000s when Witch House was very much in vogue. While there is a shared trap-gloominess between White Ring and Salem, oOoOO et al, the band’s long-awaited Gate Of Grief LP shows more influence from the likes of Alice Glass, early-90s industrial and darkwave, coldwave and other related waves. It’s also better than the aforementioned.

Forma
Semblance

Forma return to Kranky (Grouper, Tim Hecker) for their latest LP. Semblance is another fine record from the Brooklyn group that combines their penchant for minimalist composers like Steve Reich and Jon Gibson with a contemporary modular sensibility. The likes of ‘Three-Two’, while not exactly being techno, have as much pulse and movement as any DJ tool. The trio maintain the control and focus of the best art-music ensembles throughout Semblance. Lovely artwork too.

R. Girardin
Emotional Music

NYC-based specialists in weird pop and experimental electronic music, Palto Flats release the debut album from R. Girardin entitled 'Emotional Music'. It's a record on which Girardin explores his new-found love of customised, quirky sounding synthesizers and expresses a pure, naive joy through them. As a result, the combination of man and machines speaks of ecstatic, poetic and spiritual communion. Vinyl only.

Bear Bones, Lay Low / Don't DJ
Plafond 3

After two entries that have seen contributions from Legowelt and Milan W., the third record in BAKK’s Plafond series hosts new work from Don’t DJ and Bear Bones, Lay Low. Both of the jams here take up a full-side, and the artists luxuriate in the length of their pieces. While the latter's collaboration has yielded a psychedelic, New Age-y electronic odyssey in ‘Dissolve Into The Night’, Don’t DJ’s ‘Rag For Rudolf Rocker’ is a tense anti-groove that could be a soundtrack to a piece of contemporary dance.

Untold
HEK029

It doesn't seem long since Untold's monstrous 'Motion the Dance' was indeed doing just that. 5 years and several releases on from that EP, it's clear that there's no let up on atmosphere and tension, though the forces that carry it along are more alien, more heavily percussive, and guaranteed to twist dancefloors.

Yazz Ahmed
La Saboteuse Remixed

Self-proclaimed ‘High priestess of psychedelic Arabic jazz’ and former Radiohead/These New Puritans collaborator Yazz Ahmed sees her 2017 LP La Saboteuse remixed by a handful of Gilles Peterson-y producers. The Bahraini-British trumpeter allows Hector Plimmer, DJ Khalab and Blacksea Nao Maya twist her originals into new, club-friendly shapes here. La Saboteuse Remixed also includes the Ahmed original ‘Spindrifting.

Ross From Friends
Family Portrait

Give Rossie the CDJs, Marcel. While he may have originally emerged back in 2015 as the clown prince of lo-fi house, Ross From Friends showed off a more mature aesthetic when he debuted on Brainfeeder in early 2018. He follows up that EP, Aphelion, with his first full-length. Family Portrait is a well-rounded distillation of the producer's multi-faceted style, drawing as much influence from his new boss Flying Lotus as it does the fidgety compressed club jams of contemporaries like Project Pablo.

Emptyset
Emptyset

Emptyset is the first record by literal-building-rattlers Emptyset, first released in 2009. Here we get an early version of the duo’s remarkably stern explorations of frequencies and vibrations, rhythms and outright bass-noise. Very precise, very intense, and often fairly danceable. Double LP reissue on Subtext.

Lårry
sys_001

Techno of dark portent from Berlin’s Lårry here. Much of sys_001 skulks in the shadows, the alien-transmission synths and insistent kick drums trailed through the darkness by reverb. It’s an eerie listen not dissimilar to Lucy or Kangding Ray. Only on ‘systems_obfuscate’ do things boil over - this is a distorted, panicky DJ tool with shades of Schwefelgelb to it.

The Acid
The Bomb

You thought this was going to be an acid house record didn’t you? Wrong! It’s actually by a band called The Acid, and it’s pretty damn impressive. The LA group’s score for the A-Bomb documentary The Bomb is wrought from great billows of synth that give it a feeling similar to the soundtrack work of John Carpenter or Oneohtrix Point Never. The group performed at the ceremony for the 2017 Nobel Peace Prize, given to the The International Campaign to Abolish Nuclear Weapons. And what have you done with your life?

XOR Gate
Conic Sections

Tresor present yet another alias from Heinrich Mueller - real name Gerald Donald. The legendary Detroit producer has been behind some of the most impressive, immersive and cutting-edge electronic music to emerge from the motor city; Dopplereffekt, Drexciya, Elecktroids, Arpanet,Der Zyklus, Glass Domain, Intellitronic, Japanese Telecom, Rudolf Klorzeiger, Z Therapy, Abstract Thought, Daughter Produkt, Flexitone, Gedankenexperiment, L.A.M., NRSB-11, Zerkalo, Zwischenwelt. This new project is a single 30-minute piece which was originally commissioned by ArtCenter South Florida in Miami. If you skipped geometry class, fear not as Donald's sounds require no understanding of his concepts to be enjoyed. Sit back as three dimensional shapes plot new trajectories as they emerge from the speakers.

Terre Thaemlitz / DJ Sprinkles
Deproduction EP 2

Terre Thaemlitz’s LP Deproduction was a bold, challenging and typically fearless piece of sound art. The arresting original of ‘Admit It’s Killing You (And Leave)’ brought together post-minimalist piano composition with discomforting samples. Here, all is stripped away bar the keys to leave an uncanny spool of music. Deproduction EP 2 also has Thaemlitz turning in an edgy, deeper-than-deep house remix of the same piece under the banner of her DJ Sprinkles project. Great stuff.

Black Lodge
Bitter Blood

Shrouded in anonymity and curious unfounded online debates, Black Lodge releases a collection of intense yet cathartic tracks from the Black Lodge archive. Mixing noise and ambience, it sits in the middle of harsh and relieving, the crashing end of the party and all the madness, but in a good way, and you welcome it.
  • Genre(s):
  • Electronic / Electro / IDM / EBM

Don't DJ
All Love Affairs Fail But They Never End EP

Wise words from Don’t DJ there. All Love Affairs Fail But They Never End is a somnambulant, wistful collection of techno-noir. Don’t DJ’s originals range from purring electronica in the vein of Jan Jelinek (‘Veles’) to lengthy and pensive synth ambiences (‘Two Of Pentacles’). Newworldaquarium provides a deep, minimal and ethereal re-rub of ‘Veles’.

DJ Residue
211 Circles Of Rushing Water

DJ Residue is the latest alias of the shape-shifting Gunnar Wendel (Kassem Mosse, The Siege Of Troy). 211 Circles of Rushing Water continues in the vein of recent releases on The Trilogy Tapes from Parris and Metasplice. This is erstwhile, obtuse electronica where the instruments and beats often appear near to coalescing into substantial grooves but seem reluctant to go the whole hog. Inga Copeland’s Lolina project springs to mind.

Various
Prophecy + Progress: UK Electronics 1978 - 1990

Spanish label Peripheral Minimal (Spatial Relation, Doric) release a selection of Thatcher-era electronics. While you could charitably term most of Prophecy + Progress synth-pop, the thirteen tracks here are a far cry from your Dead Or Alives and your Depeche Modes. Entries from Naked Lunch and Konstruktivists are useful nuggets of early industrialism and synthwave, while the likes of Clock DVA’s ‘Lomticks Of Time’ and Five Times Of Dust’s ‘Automaton’ are lo-fi experiments.
  • Genre(s):
  • Electronic / Electro / IDM / EBM

Seraphim Rytm
Prayers By The Lake

The first release on Mirae Arts comes courtesy of Seraphim Ritm, an alias of the artist you may know better as Damaskin. Prayer By The Lake is a four-part suite of glacial techno as cold and crisp as the snow-covered landscape on its cover. The stargazing sounds of Detroit are invoked here, but something about this EP situates it very much on planet Earth. It’s not dissimilar to something you might find coming out on Tresor. Nice work.

John Bender
Pop Surgery

Pop Surgery was the last album German eccentric John Bender recorded. It was originally released in 1982. He brought together tape experiments, drum machines and analogue sequencers to deconstruct the idea of the pop song - Pop Surgery perhaps containing his best attempts at doing so. Fans of Suicide, Throbbing Gristle circa 20 Jazz Funk Greats and the early strains of Cabaret Voltaire should check this out. Reissue LP on Superior Viaduct.

The Future Sound Of London
Environments 2

The acidic and naturalist IDM duo returned with a follow-up to their record 'Environments' with more eclectic bliss. The Future Sound of London have never been one to stick to their genre tags, and so decided to mess up the whole process with this sequel, offering an hour of music that bended together the archetypes of classical music (string swells, brooding cellos, and a choir, because why not?) with their usual landscape of beats and electronic beard-stroking. These guys have grander ambitions (and probably better writing skills) than James Cameron: 'Environments 2' was one of five entries into the series.

The Future Sound Of London
Environments

Environments has an interesting history to it. It is known as the ‘lost’ Future Sound Of London album, being originally due for release in 1993 but never quite getting out there. Now we can at last hear what we were missing out on: more prime sound from the masters. This was released digitally and on CD a few years ago, but this is the first ever vinyl pressing.

Bugge Wesseltoft & Prins Thomas
Bugge Wesseltoft & Prins Thomas

Prins Thomas has been keeping busy hasn’t he. After a solo full-length, a collaborative LP with Bjorn Torske, some remixes and a bunch of EPs back in 2017, he’s now readying a new album alongside Norwegian jazz pianist Bugge Wesseltoft. The five lengthy tracks here meet somewhere in-between Wesseltoft’s downtempo lounge-hop and the spacey disco we usually associate with Thomas. It’s a very pleasant affair. Out, of course, on Smalltown Supersound.

NYZ
CSR SHAPERZ

More generative wild behaviour from the NYZ project, in which Dave Burraston builds up the systems and then lets them run wild all by themselves. CSR SHAPERZ has nine shorter tracks (some very short) and two hefty epics, and listening to the whole lot makes you feel like part of a tangled network of circuits yourself. CD on Ge-stell.

Lorenzo Senni
The Shape Of RemixXxes To Come

Two really quite different versions of Lorenzo Senni’s track ‘XAllegroX: The Shape Of RemixXxes To Come (Senni loves his X’s doesn’t he?). One side features DJ Stingray’s dark, booming version, and the other side, by evil computer wizard Florian Hecker, will blow out your synapses. 12” from Warp.

Cruel Diagonals
Disambiguation

Drawing Room Records present the debut LP from Bay Area vocalist/field recordist Megan Mitchell’s Cruel Diagonals project. Disambiguation is an unsettling listen, with Mitchell utilising electronic sequences and synthesised hums alongside the sounds she’s found and the ones she’s made with her voice. The lines between electroacoustic composition, ambient techno and drone blur nicely here, and the end result recalls Holly Herndon.

Holiday Inn
Torbido

Holiday Inn are one of Rome’s finest synth-punk outfits, and they create music as ferociously DIY and direct as that Xerox-ed cover art. Torbido is real powerhouse stuff, tapping straight into the veins and jolting with wave after wave of pulsing, shouting, pumping energy. Not at all like the chain of budget hotels. Vinyl release from the Avant! and Maple Death labels.

Soft Riot
The Outsider In The Mirrors

Get yourself onto YouTube and search Soft Riot and album title in the search bar, and you'll find a genuine 'promotional film', not a trailer or an album sampler, but an actual promotional film. I can't decide if this is the future of music advertisement, or a whimsical attempt at selling music? Either way, The Outsider In The Mirrors is the latest release from Soft Riot and is available on vinyl LP, CD and Tape from Possession Records. (Seriously, search that promotional video, it's hilarious). 

Stray Theories
All That Was Lost

If you like ambient music then you'll probably like this third record from Stray Theories called All That Was Lost. When Templeton-Wolfe isn't busy writing and composing material for other musical ventures, he gets time to release gold like this which will appeal to fabs of Hammock and Eluvium. Available on vinyl LP and CD and released, proudly must I add, on n5MD.

808 State
ex:el

Think back to 1991, when 808 State were at the peak of their techno powers. You had a great time losing your mind and body to these original bangers didn’t you? Now you can jog your memory again with their third album ex:el (featuring guest appearances from Bernard Sumner and Bjork!), reissued here on yellow vinyl with 4 bonus tracks. Limited to 750 copies worldwide.

Klaus Schulze & Pete Namlook
The Dark Side Of The Moog Vol. 4

The Dark Side of the Moog (Vol. 4) is another compilation record from two great electronic composers: Klaus Schulze and Pete Namlook. Apart from looking rather cool on the record sleeve, the music is pretty damn cool, too. Available on a double vinyl LP with an insert, and released on Music on Vinyl.

Okzharp & Manthe Ribane
Closer Apart

After leaving LV, Okzharp has thrived alongside fellow South African artist Manthe Ribane. Following some hype-generating EPs in the mid-2010s, they’ve come through with a baker’s dozen of tracks for their debut LP. Closer Apart sees Ribane guide Okzharp to some spare and groovy instrumentals that whip up a mix of South African House, Kwaito, two-step, UK funky and dubstep. Atop these the singer provides some delicate autotuned vocals. Suitable for both club and home listening and out via Hyperdub.
  • Genre(s):

RP Boo
I'll Tell You What!

It’s amazing to think that RP Boo has never had a prominent release of wholly original material prior to I'll Tell You What!. The last two LPs from the footwork originator, Legacy and Fingers, Bank Pads And Foot Prints, were largely archival releases. I’ll Tell You What! finds the RP technic in good nick after all these years. The tracks here are exemplary 160 bpm workouts that also feature a little of Boo on the mic. Out via Planet Mu.

Pariah
Here From Where We Are

Pariah makes his long-awaited return with his even-longer-awaited debut LP. The reason that the one born Arthur Cayzer has taken so long to drop Here From Where We Are is down to the fact that, after getting a little jaded by music, he took time to rediscover the sounds that really made him tick. As such, this record is a nice mix of the sort of banging techno he does alongside Blawan in Karenn and synth ambiences, sound art and more. He sounds like he’s enjoying himself, which is nice. Out via Houndstooth.

John Maus
Love Is Real

There is an alternate timeline in which John Maus, rather than Ariel Pink, was the one who collaborated with Madonna.* You only need to listen to Maus’ 2006 LP Love Is Real once to know that it would have been something worth hearing. The academic punk heartthrob is in majestic form here. Psychedelic minimal wave paeans like ‘Rights For Gays’ and ‘The Silent Chorus’ spiral ever-higher. *In this reality Maus divides his time between being a massive pop star and president of the U.S.A.. It’s a great timeline.

Lotic
Power

After a season out of the spotlight, the celebrated Lotic returns to Tri Angle (Adult Jazz, Forest Swords) for their debut LP. Power retains certain elements of the deconstructed club sound that helped put Lotic on the map back in the mid-2010s while also bringing in new elements. The use of vocals, for instance, is a prominent and welcome change. Comparisons will be made to Arca, but there is also a lot of Fatima Al Qadiri in here.

Robert Cohen-Solal
Les Shadoks

Les Shadoks was an animated French TV show that ran from 1968 till 1974, and its one that has built up a bit of a cult reputation over time. The soundtrack to this scintillating show was put together by Robert Cohen-Solal, a GRM-certified electro-acoustic composer with a playful touch. Whether you are a fan of the show or not, you really ought to hear this fabulously eclectic music. On WRWTFWW Records.

LTO
Storybook

LTO is a part of the Bristolian Old Apparatus collective of electronic explorers, and his solo work continues the highly attentive approach to sound design. On Storybook however, the advanced electronics surround some melodic and melancholy piano lines, making for a less abstracted kind of music. Storybook is released by Injazero.
  • Genre(s):
  • Electronic / Electro / IDM / EBM

Hybrid
Drive Club (Original PlayStation Soundtrack)

When I was younger our computer games didn’t have such incredible soundtracks as this, the lineup alone is one most labels would be envious of. Remix duties taken on by masters of most electronic genres, including Machinedrum, The Qemists, DJ Shadow, Noisia, Photek, Clark, and Black Sun Empire. Christ on a (computerised) bike.

Earthen Sea
An Act Of Love

Earthen Sea is the solo project of Jacob Long, also of the punkish outfit Mi Amo. The music he makes as Earthen Sea however is fairly different, being a form of dub techno that leans so far into ambient music that at times you can just forget about the dancefloor. Big wam sweeps of sound will swallow you up white the 4/4s keep you moving. New album An Act Of Love is released by Kranky.

Pina
Lärm

Phil just couldn't wait to have this one played in the office. In fact, he emailed Ian directly to instruct us to listen to it all immediately. Who doesn't get a little excited about one of the most recognisable underground electronic artists of the 90's releasing some new stuff? Lärm by Pina is available on vinyl LP and is released on Lapsus Records.

Miki Yui
Mills

Warm field recording clutter for broken droners. Miki Yui's newest record for Cusp Editions sounds beautiful through and through, recalling the shuttering architecture of records by Danny Clay. Using clanging, metallic sound sources and odd strands of half-baked rhythm, Yui creates an inviting, Sunday morning kinda experimentalism.

Kutiman
Don't Hold Onto the Clouds

The multi-talented Kutiman drops a new full-length via his own Siyal Music imprint. Don’t Hold Onto the Clouds is, in the producer/instrumentalist/label-owner/animator’s own words, a record that helps him fall asleep. We can see why that’s the case - the four lengthy entries here are languid things that recall, among others, Moondog and Alice Coltrane. There’s also a clear influence of Indian classical music. It’s a dreamy LP for sure.

Rian Treanor
A Rational Tangle

He’s well-known to us now of course, but let's look and listen back to Rian Treanor’s 2015 debut, the sharp A Rational Tangle EP on The Death of Rave. Four cuts of jagged synthetic shapes, showcasing the family instinct for rhythmic and textural complexity that somehow still comes together as a joy to hear. White label 12”, just about still available at time of writing!

Graham Reznick
R0B0PHAs1A

Graham Reznick has composed greatly for screen, especially horror, with credits including ABCs of Death 2, Beneath and The House of the Devil. Transposing this to stand alone music made sense with his John Carpenter leanings. After releasing on Death Waltz he now breaks onto Burning Witches with a much more angular 80’s electro/hip hop sound which is cheeky and filled with infectious melody.

D'Arcangelo
II

Suction Records follow up their reissue of D’Arcangelo’s 1996 Rephlex Records EP with this new archival release. Four of the six pieces on II were tracked around the same time as the Roman duo’s self-titled debut, though they have never seen the light of day until now. They’re the typically mind-melting mix of braindance, acid, electro, techno and IDM that the Italian veterans have spent the subsequent years stamping their authority on. The release is fleshed out by ‘AOM*2’ and ‘Diagram IX’, both long out of print until now.

CVX
Zibaldone III Of CVX

The third instalment of Rupert Clervaux’s Zibaldone Of CVX series is a collection of ‘multi-angle audio mosaics’ from the London-via-Mallorca sound artist. While Zibaldone III may initially seem obtuse and hostile, if you persevere you’ll stumble on some rather profound stuff. Synthesising snippets of spoken text - poetry, radio broadcasts, lectures, you name it - with everything from lo-fi techno to closing-time piano jazz, CVX has made an oddly compelling work here. Imagine Karlheinz Stockhausen if he’d ever hooked up with Jan Jelinek.

Diptera
001 [Antenna]

Diptera are a duo who approach club deconstructionism in a rather literal way. First off Activist DJ whips up a quick bit of darkside garage. The resulting tune is then sent over to Wesley who mangles, bends and screws the original into strange new shapes. On 001 [Antenna], the end result is a four-track set that sounds like a Clark mix being funneled through a metal pipe. Szare also springs to mind. Out via Mana.

John Robinson Pierce
Music From Mathematics

At some point, robots are going to take over the earth. Maybe it has already happened and we can’t even tell. Those that will be spared are those that have declared their love for all things robotic so you should buy this 1960s foray into computer generated music by John Robinson Pierce and start swatting up.

Fleck E.S.C
Discrete Opinion

Sometimes it feels like once you’ve heard one Central Processing Unit release, you’ve heard them all. All those bleeps and bloops can jade one a little. However, something seems to be different with this latest drop from Fleck E.S.C. We can’t quite put our finger on it - maybe it’s the lovely languid bass sounds, maybe it’s the little dabs of abrasive noise he throws into the mix every now and then - but Discrete Opinion has managed to at once slot nicely into the label’s huge Braindance back-catalogue and also distinguish itself from it. Some feat.

Container
LP

This LP by Container is called LP and is released by Spectrum Spools, but please note that it is wholly different to the previous Container LPs released by Spectrum Spools, also called LP. This new one, recorded in 2017, is of course of a barrage of powerhouse techno with rough, grainy edges: dark ecstatic club power.

Various
Colund1

This compilation consists of electronic music made using the Colundi sequence, a 128-tone scale that taps into some strange philosophical and biological fundaments. This non-Western scale was developed by tireless electronic experimenter Aleksi Perälä and former Rephlex head honcho Grant Wilson-Claridge. Things tend to lean towards the more off-kilter side of techno, with a lot of classic drum sounds and some gorgeous harmonies. Capsule and Tunnel One’s contributions are particularly exciting, the former an eerie choir-led stroll and the latter pulling off some classic sci-fIDM.

Mark E
Product Of Industry

Mark E hails from the West Midlands, and identifies the industrial background of the area as an influence on his sound, particularly on this album, Product Of Industry (obviously). But, refreshingly, this isn’t just a byword for ‘heavy’ and ‘dark’ music. Mark E takes the mechanical relentlessness of industry, but tempered with warm analogue synth sounds. Its a strong combination.

Griffit Vigo
DJ

Finally, an introduction on his own terms for one of gqom's originators. Gqom is a mindbendingly propulsive style of dance music from Durban in South Africa. Here Griffit Vigo gives us a taste of his debut album, and shows his intent to make sure that the genre's beginnings are not forgotten. Will never fail to light up a dance floor.

WEN
EPHEM:ERA

WEN’s new set EPHEM:ERA observes grime from a studied distance, taking the core club ingredients of the sound and applying the WEN magic to them in order to construct semi-abstracted electronic music that makes you wonder: is this a piece, or a track? Either way, twelve slices of great audio. EPHEM:ERA is out on Big Dada.

Rizzla
Adepta

Rizzla’s star may not shine as brightly as the likes Kelela, Total Freedom and other Fade To Mind luminaries, but gosh darn it can they tear up a club. Anyone who slept on 2015’s essential Iron Cages EP can set things right by copping the producer’s debut LP Adepta. These eleven tracks of pure dancefloor power bristle with violence, rage and intent. Imagine early Arca with absolutely no time for pretence.

Apostille
Choose Life

Glaswegian, Night School Records manager and probable trainspotter Apostille (one Michael Kasparis) upsets the rhythm on Upset the Rhythm with his new album Choose Life. This one follows 2015’s Powerless with upbeat retro (especially the bass) synthpop. Good luck un-seeing the cover photo ever.

Brian Case
Plays Paradise Artificial

Brian Case from Chicago post-punk bands Disappears and FACS is onto his third solo release with Plays Paradise Artificial. Here he takes the essence of his previous two albums and distills further his work with Disappears and FACS to its bare bones to create a skeletal and spooky musical world. Transparent yellow vinyl, limited to 300 copies on Hand In The Dark.

Also included is a CD of remixes of tracks from that album, featuring a stellar line-up of artists including; Koen Holtkamp, Loscil, Ernest Gibson, Montgomery Knott, Ben Vida, Dustin O'Halloran, Robert Lippok, and ISAN.

E123 EP

Sähkö Recordings sub-label Puu (Jimi Tenor, Soft Focus, try not to laugh at the name) presents a various-artists selection. E123 is made up of four pieces of gently-bobbing downtempo electro. Ni Ko and Jarno Valli impress the most with their entries of R2-D2 weirdness (the former) and cerebral Balearicism (the latter).

Primitive Art
Crab Suite

Arcola Records is having a good 2018. The label has already scored hits with drops from Nkisi, Jamal Moss, Basic Rhythm and more. Primitive Art’s Crab Suite EP maintains their good form into the second half of the year. This is a brilliantly mucky affair, with various soundsystem cross-pollinations (dub techno, dancehall, Reggaeton) pulled apart by techniques from the world of industrial techno. Shrouded in reverb, delay and distortion, tracks like ‘Sequrity’ and ‘Recall Your Bones’ nod simultaneously to Basic Channel, Arca and Shackleton.

Johnny Jewel
Themes For Television

He’s prolific, that Johnny Jewel. Despite running Italians Do It Better and being in Chromatics, he still manages to find time to turn out an impressive amount of solo material. No sooner has the dust settled on Jewel’s January LP Digital Rain than we get Themes For Television, a twenty-one track collection of music intended for the reboot of David Lynch’s Twin Peaks. Only ‘Windswept’ made it onto the show in the end, but the remaining pieces conjure that very specific TP mood very well indeed.

Prefuse 73
Sacrifices

Last spotted writing an album called 'Lady Parts' as Fudge, it feels like time Scott Heron got back to doing what he's best at. After many years of output he still has great production chops and though we have absolutely zero information about this album we're sure it will be as much anticipated as all his previous work.

Sote
Persian Electronic Music Volume 2 / Sacred Horror In Design

A new one from the most intense and hardcore mixer of all time, Sacred Horror In Design sees Sote follow-up the unbelievable and unprecedented Hardcore Sounds from Tehran. This record comes as a commission for Sote, who is joined by Arash Bolouri and Behrouz Pashaei, the trio bridging juxtapositions of electronics and Iranian classical music in divergent patterns. Sote left many of the instruments played on the record unprocessed against their electronic counterparts.

Ōgon Batto
Hedoro

Its Ogon Batto! The name of the game from this Belgian is a highly synthetic synthesis of Japanese-style sounds, put together with synthesisers and often suggesting a surrealistic video game. Hedoro has the feel of an exotic fantasia for the digital age, and will surely appeal to fans of some of what Oneohtrix Point Never has been up to in recent years. On Aguirre.

Lena Platonos
Lepidoptera

Reissue of the ‘mother of Greek electronica’ by Dark Entries here. Originally released in 1986, the pianist-turned-composer Lena Platonos conceived Lepidoptera as a record of avant-pop. Full of stylistic left-turns - dinky nature documentary soundtrack one minute, Devo-meets-Laurie Anderson the next - this record sounds oddly contemporary when put up against the smorgasbord-pop sound of so many current post-genre artists.

Bill Laswell / Nicholas James Bullen
Bass Terror

You know that when Bill Laswell (of Painkiller and a thousand heavy production jobs) and Nicholas James Bullen (of Scorn and bloody Napalm Death) threaten Bass Terror, they are going to deliver on that threat. These two pieces are dense with low-end throb, pulse and thrash, and they have never before been released on vinyl. Out on Sub Rosa.

Richard Wahnfried
Time Actor

Time Actor is credited to Richard Wahnfried, who you’ve probably never heard of, right? So why bother listening to Time Actor? Well, because that Wagner-referencing name is a pseudonym for the collaboration of German synth wizard Klaus Schulze and the original psychedelic Fireman Arthur Brown himself! What a team-up eh? Remastered reissue of this rare 1979 treat, spread over two LPs.

Daedelus
Of Snowdonia & Something Bells

While Daedelus might now have built a whole scene in his image, back in the early 2000s he was still working towards that whole mad-genius post-bap thing. 2003’s Of Snowdonia LP, and the shorter Something Bells that was released the following year, both represent significant steps in his artistic progression. They show him making strides in the direction of his trademark sound, yet also incorporating influences from folk and r ‘n’ b in a manner reminiscent of what Four Tet was doing at the same time. This re-pressing from Magical Properties brings the two records together in one double-LP edition.

David Tagg
PILL SERIES USB

This release from David Tagg is released on a USB stick packaged within a pill box that promises ‘Sleeping Pills’. But PILL SERIES USB carries the conceit beyond that: the musical contents are in fact intended to soothe the listener to sleep, over the course of 8 hours of ambience. Only 21 copies of this unusual release, hurry hurry!

Michal Turtle feat. HOVE
Middle of the Road Less Travelled

80s electro tinkerer Michal Turtle has seen a renewed interest in his music in recent years, with Music From Memory reissuing a number of records from his back catalogue. Now Light Of Other Days sees him team up with guitarist Hove for this EP of gentle deep house and Balearic beat. There’s a nice dinky quality to the synths on Middle of the Road Less Travelled that recalls Dazion and Dip In The Pool.

Immersion
Analogue Creatures Living on An Island

Immersion is a project by Colin Newman of Wire and Malka Spigel of Githead. It was shelved just before 2000 and has now been brought back on Newman’s Swim imprint. Analogue Creatures Living on An Island is glorious synthetic dream pop that lacks structure or rhythm, it nears on drone, but with an undeniable sunshine to it.

Antoni Maiovvi
Interior / Exterior

Italo-synth throwback merchant Antoni Maiovvi’s ‘Interior’ and ‘Exterior’ are exemplary renderings of … well, throwback Italo-synth. As grandiose as the cover art, each track swells and ebbs with gorgeous arpeggios, skittering synth stabs and snappy melodies. Out on the ever-reliable InFact recordings, and with only 50 of these pressed you’d be wise to snap one up sooner rather than later.

Arovane
Aarlenpeers EP

After a break of 9 years, Arovane returned to the world of recordstores in 2013 with Ve Palor. Now he is confirming his return with Aarlepeers, which, as far as we know, will be a continuation of the soultouching IDM we’ve grown accustomed to -- but perhaps with a little more bite, a bit sharper corners.

XIII
Eocity

Sound artist XIII returns to Gang of Ducks (Shit & Shine, My Panda Shall Fly) for this eerie EP. Eocity was made predominantly with a Yamaha ex5r, a piece of hardware which intended to mimic the vibrations and timbral quirks of the acoustic instruments it was aping. It didn’t succeed, but XIII taps into the simultaneously chilly and warm sound of the synth across these six tracks. The resulting record lands somewhere between Ziur and Visible Cloaks. The sleeve comes 'hand-burnt', which is cool.

Brendon Anderegg
June

After being one half of electronic music project Mountains with Koen Holtkamp, composer Brendon Anderegg began his solo career in the late ‘90s. His return to recording begins with June, a calming work reminiscent of Bernard Parmegiani, Tangerine Dream, Cluster and Popol Vuh. Vinyl only on Thrill Jockey.

Nonturn
Territory

Territory is the soundtrack to the streets of Tokyo. Nozom Yoneda, as Nonturn made field recording in the city and collated them to produce an idealised vision of his city. Yoneda has had a go at just about every style of music and has drawn on the diversity of his experience to a produce a work that is both ambitious, and personal.

Mark Fell
Intra

Intra is an opportunity to hear the scintillating hermetic digital soundworld of Mark Fell break out into the physical acoustic realm. Fell’s piece uses electronic sounds to guide the Drumming Grupo De Percussao as they play the Sixxen metallophone, a particularly fantastic instrument devised in the 70’s by Iannis Xenakis(!!!). If no part of that sounds enticing to you, then I just can’t help you. On Boomkat Editions.

Rasmus Hedlund
Intet Efter Allt

Finnish label Ljudverket make it into double-figures courtesy of another drop by Rasmus Hedlund. The four tunes of Intet Efter Allt (Nothing After All) are icy affairs that bring together big-room techno, acid-techno, dub-techno and a few other strands of that there techno. Sombre synths and minor-key pads abound whether Hedlund is operating at 120 bpm or 140 bpm. Imagine a moodier version of Bjarki.

Klaus Schulze & Pete Namlook
The Dark Side Of The Moog Vol. 1

The legendary Klaus Schulze and his similarly synth-toting pal Pete Namlook loved their Pink Floyd, like any good psychedelic travellers would, and they carried this inspiration over to their Dark Side Of The Moog series. These ain’t covers though: the material here on Volume One is space-synth ambient music on an epic scale. Double LP release from Music On Vinyl.

Fractures

Elian
Harrowgate

Some shadowy sounds from Elian. Harrowgate is the new five tracker from American producer Michael Duane Ferrell.

Going deep into the ocean or far out into space, he's looking for something in the darkness. Out on CD from Home Normal.

TimeDog
Objects of Mind

The debut album by Glaswegian ambient musician Pete Burton. Ethereal electronic music ranging from ambient, drone to experimental percussion structures with a hint towards the kosmische Zeitgeist.

Pete is stronlgy influenced by Krautrock acts such as Popol Vuh or Tangerine Dream but also modern ambient music like Biosphere etc. 150 limited, hand numbered & manufactured CDs only.

The Third Eye Foundation
Semtex

The Third Eye Foundation’s legendary slice of shoegaze-inspired drum ‘n' bass is finally reissued by Ici d'Ailleurs. Semtex’s brutal, dense and anti-establishment music blends harsh breakbeat rhythms and melancholy samples to create something that still sounds unique 20 years later. It feels a little strange to have something so perfectly rough and anti-social so beautifully presented. Available on CD and double vinyl LP.

wosX
Brasil World Cup 2034

Dystopian vaporwave for pitch-shifted Orwellian ears, this new tape on Dream Catalogue sees wosX imagine a future in which Brazil once again hosts the world cup, albeit in a "war-torn South America". It's a record of saunteringly monotonous synth that speaks to the hardvapour aesthetic, implying harshness through pop music slowed into subliminally aggressive glitches.

The Orb
No Sounds Are Out of Bounds

After two techno albums for Kompakt, The Orb’s main man Alex Patterson wanted to create something more expansive and less predictable. He was keen to work with more people and use more vocals too. The result is No Sounds Are Out Of Bounds, The electronic duo’s guest-heavy 15th album. It features guest performances from Hollie Cook, Roger ‘Brian’s Brother’ Eno, Youth, Steve Hillage, Jah Wobble and renowned session musician Guy Pratt. Double vinyl LP on Cooking Vinyl.

Honey

Death In Vegas continue their collaborations with Sasha Grey with the sleek dark electro pop of Honey, which is sure to delight fans of the group. Honey is backed with Richard Fearless’s dub version of ‘Witchdance’, wherein the vocals of Austra singer Katie Stelmanis are yet more abstracted than they were before, to intoxicating effect, 12” from the Drone label.

Red Fetish
A Derangement Of Synapses

Red Fetish come from humble Stoke in the UK but the sound produced sounds more like it was knocked up on a space shuttle, somewhere around the moon. A Derangement of Synapses sees the two band members tinkering away on some classic Korg and Yamaha instruments to make some lo-fi Human League type stuff, perhaps edging more toward the dark tunes of Oppenheimer Analysis. 180g, red and white coloured vinyl LP.

DJ Richard
Dies Iræ Xerox

House bloodsucker DJ Richard returns with another record of sublimity in Dies Irae Xerox. As if Grind wasn't already unsettling enough, it looks like this one's going to continue to be bright sparks of light from dank dour corners, another record of groovy hope from a producer who can't stop wowing us. Playing with swelling ambience this time round, Richard's sound finds its expansion pack.
