Jon Hopkins
Opalescent

House producer and Coldplay helper Jon Hopkins has done a lot since Opalescent, but his debut record now gets a reissue after fifteen years in the game. It was released to Just Label who largely dealt in beautified ambient music, and Hopkins sentimental sound was well suited to their whims -- that said, his music introduced different extremities, with his thunderous rhythmic ideas coupled with a more pastoral sound.

Shit & Shine
Some People Really Know How To Live

With releases on Diagonal, Riot Season, Rocket and, Gangsigns, Shit & Shine are shape shifters with no real defined edges. Happily mixing Thrones avantgarde heaviness with Luke Vibert acid and broken breaks. Some People Really Know How To Live continues their degradation of genres, breaking apart disco and techno beats, modulating machinery until it breaks. LP on Editions Mego.

Lotic
Heterocetera

22-year-old Berlin-based Texan producer J'Kerian Morgan aka Lotic follows up 2014's acclaimed 'Damsel In Distress' free mixtape with an impressive debut for Tri Angle showing off his trademark spectral melody and shuddering low-end to compelling and often moving effect. Experimental yet accessible, 'Heterocetera' places Lotic at the forefront of R&B's mutant division.

Pauline Oliveros
Electronic Works 1965+1966

Early electronic expansions from American Pauline Oliveros. Electronic Works 1965+1966 are a series of analogue gems from Pauline's recorded out put. She built a lot of her own equipment and constructed numerous pieces through improvisation. Also, she experimented with a multitude of analogue effects and gadgets, similar to the Radiophonic Workshop and EMS in England. These recordings are a foray into mid-centaury avant-garde electronics. Out on CD from Paradigm Discs.

Shy Layers
Midnight Marker

J. D. Walsh follows up his well-received 2016 LP as Shy Layers. Midnight Marker is another perky fusion of Balearic tropes, Yacht rock, electro-soul and cerebral pop ala Another Green World. Walsh proves a great arranger here - tracks like ‘Gateway’ are dense constructions of synth bass, drums, vocals, harmonised lead lines and more, but despite being busy it never feels like the parts are getting in the way of each other. Out via Beats In Space.

Bjork
Arisen My Senses (Jlin, Lanark Artefax, Kelly Lee Owens Remixes)

Promising release from up-and-coming Icelandic artist Björk. One of the standouts of Utopia, ‘Arisen My Senses’ - a co-production with Arca - opens that LP with what can only be described as cautious bombast. Emerging from the love lockdown that was Vulnicura, ‘Arisen My Senses’ is the sound of dawn after a dark night of the soul. This EP comes fleshed out with weapons-grade remixes from Lanark Artefax, Jlin and Kelly Lee Owens.

Actress x London Contemporary Orchestra
LAGEOS

Following the single release of ‘Audio Track 5’ last September, Ninja Tune now offer up an entire LP of Darren “Actress” Cunningham’s collaboration with London Contemporary Orchestra, which first performed at the Barbican in 2016 (helpfully, ‘Audio Track 5’ is track 8 here). The daunting task of adopting an entire suite of new acoustic instruments into his mucky toolset seems to have led Actress to clean up his sound a fair whack, immediately putting his signature sound at risk. Still, what comes out is a lovely texture.

Lamartine
Reportage

A truly lost work here from an Italian library music composer known as Lamartine. Reportage has never previously been released (not only a little bit), which is a great shame when you hear how compellingly inquisitive it sounds. 1970’s synth experimentalism, somewhere between the regions of GRM and komische. On Finders Keepers.

Klaus Schulze
La Vie Electronique Volume 1.1

Klaus Schulze - he of Tangerine Dream, Ash Ra Tempel and … Klaus Schulze fame - has set to work putting his affairs in order in the past decade. La Vie Electronique Volume 1.1 is in fact the second volume in the LVE series, a run that brings together Schulze’s rarities in chronological order. Focussing on the fruitful period between 1970 and 1972, these studies, ditties and exercises prefigure so many of the great genre upheavals of the subsequent decade, particularly the advents of ambient, electroacoustic and New Age musics. This release is the first time that these tracks have made it to vinyl.

Zomby
Mercury’s Rainbow

Modern Love finally issue Zomby's Mercury Beats, his attempt at re-imagining Wiley's Eskibeat series of releases. Made a while ago while his body clock was all out of whack, the pieces are methodical and rhythmic takes on grime that if released at the time may have shifted the course of grime. We think that is what the press release is saying but you can never be sure.

Ruxpin
Avalon [Remastered]

Fifteen-year anniversary reissue for Avalon by Icelander Ruxpin. This one’s a much-loved entry in the early 2000s IDM/bedroomtronica scene, with flangey hats, cute lead melodies and lush synth beds. The album now gets the vinyl remaster treatment - with orange/gold and violet options! - including an ill-advised artwork revision and a digital download of unreleased tunes.

96 Back
Provisional Electronics

Given that they seem to release at least one new record every single week, it’s quite surprising to find out that Sheffield’s Central Processing Unit have never previously dropped anything by a Steel City artist. That honour goes to Evan Majumdar-Swift aka 96 Back. His Provisional Electronics EP features four slabs of the kind of acid/electro that has become the label’s stock-in-trade. Comes recommended by Konx Om Pax and Altern-8’s Mark Archer.

Visible Cloaks
Visible Cloaks

Musique Plastique’s souped-up reissue of Visible Cloaks’s self-titled 2014 cassette is out for another release run. The duo’s synthesis of synthetic FM tones, manipulated voices and mallet percussion recalls the releases of the short-lived but influential label Hippos In Tanks (Hype Williams, James Ferraro) as well as having something of the Kid As about it. This re-pressing sees the original tape remastered and bundled together with ‘additional surprises’. Goodee.

Don Harper
Cold Worlds (Gate)

A previously unreleased Doctor Who score mastered from the original tapes. Includes additional electronic tracks from Don Harper's catalogue and music featured in George Romero's Dawn of the Dead. A collection of Horror-Electronics, supernatural soundscapes and sinister library muzak from Australian composer Don Harper. Centring on a previously unreleased score for the 1968 Doctor Who series The Invasion (a dark otherworldly sci-fi jazz suite) Cold Worlds is also a focus on the electronic music of this largely unsung composer. Like many Australian film composers (Ron Grainer, Dudley Simpson, Don Banks) Don Harper based himself in the UK during the 1960s and subsequently found employment at the BBC and other British film and library companies.

Aïsha Devi
DNA Feelings

Danse Noire co-founder Aisha Devi drops the follow-up to Of Matter And Spirit via Houndstooth. In DNA Feelings, Devi has created a visceral LP which bends rave styles to her will. The manner in which the sounds of the club are re-purposed as platforms for Devi’s powerful voice and dense, impressionistic lyrics is thrilling, unique, and the sign of genuine talent. Fans of Arca, Future Brown and Mykki Blanco will enjoy.

Forest Swords
DJ-Kicks

Matthew “Forest Swords” Barnes gets The Invitation from the !K7 crowd, a sure measure of success. The selections for his mix prove eclectic and certainly more interested in portraying a range of great music than a seamless, segued mix experience. You’ve got Kara-Lis Coverdale, David Toop, Pantha Du Prince, Mira Calix, the London Bulgarian Choir performing the famous ‘Pilentse Pee’ and Vashti Bunyan’s splendid ‘Here Before’... you get the idea.

Paul White
Rejuvenate

Previously known as the beatsmith who was, among other things, the architect of Danny Brown’s avant-rap masterpiece Atrocity Exhibition, Paul White has foregone sampling for his latest LP. In Rejuvenate, he has composed, performed and produced eleven tracks of limber, playful pop. There’s more than a little of Dirty Projectors, Solange and tUnE-yArDs in here. Rejuvenate by name, rejuvenate by nature.

Instant Music
Instant Music

Kraftwerk inspired poppy post-punk from 80s Munich. Instant Music managed to do what so many Kraftwerk imitators failed to do, and made six fun (!) robotic tracks, including one where washing machine instructions are read out over samples of the machine in questions. Remaster released on Dark Entries.

Various
Outer Himalayan Presents

This collaborative release between Dark Entries and Sacred Bones sees them chronicling the output of British post-punk imprint Outer Himmalayan Records. Active in the late 70s and early 80s, the label’s 7” releases of bands The Magits, Soft Drinks and The Haters became formative releases in the annals of both Goth and anarcho-punk. For this reissue, the tracks have been remastered and come accompanied with a zine.

OOoOO & Islamic Grrrls
Faminine Mystique

oOoOO, look who it is! Witch-house’s least Google-friendly artist is back after a few years away, and the return of Christopher Dexter Greenspan comes in the form of a collaborative LP with glumwaver Islamic Grrrls. Faminine Mystique - pronounced ‘famine in mystique’ is sort of what you’d end up with if 808s and Heartbreaks-era Yeezy had done a song for Drive.

DJ Earl
Open Your Eyes

DJ Earl is one of the premium Chicago footwork producers, and Open Your Eyes gives him a full 8 tracks to show off his powers. With scene guests including Moondoctor, Taso, DJ Manny and DJ Taye, these tracks switch between relatively laid-back vocal cuts and ferocious dancefloor killers where the rhythms leave no breathing room. A 12” of high quality material on Teklife.

Destroyer
Forces From Above (DJ johnedwardscollins@gmail.com remix)

One of the stand-out tracks from Destroyer’s recent Poison Season gets remixed by somebody going by the name DJ johnedwardcollins@gmail.com, who presents a maybe slightly unexpected techno reworking of the firmly song-based original material. The Forces From Above remix is pressed to white label vinyl by Dead Oceans.

The Hug
Patio

This limited-edition, self-released record from The Hug is a 12-track extravaganza, sweeping effortlessly from beautiful melodia to hypnotic instrumentation.

David Ross

Stochastic Moods creates probing digital sound-spaces out of oscillators and filters, with thoroughly abstract results. LP from Cusp Editions.

Klaus Schulze
La Vie Electronique Volume 1.2

A further archival dose of synthesizer sound from Klaus Schulze, the hyper-productive German maestro. La Vie Electronique Volume 1.2 is a double LP set of rare (and even unreleased) material from Schulze’s early 70’s period, showcasing that beautiful organic Moog-work style. 2LP on One Way Static.

Syclops
Pink Eye

Once you get past the title, Pink Eye - the third LP from Maurice Fulton’s Syclops project - is a nice wedge of leftfield club fare. Alongside a band including Mim Suleiman, Fulton has produced eleven tunes that range from relatively straightforward bongo-techno workouts (‘Spin Cycle’) to a weird sort of acid-disco-funk hybrid (‘The Skipper’, ‘Caryll J The Superhero’). We suggest you … keep an eye on it (har de har). Out via Running Back.

L/F/D/M
Crocodiles in the Ceiling EP

Using his L/F/D/M alias, producer Richard Smith (who also works with Dom Butler of Factory Floor as Bronze Teeth and Green Gums) hits hard with the Crocodiles In The Ceiling EP, 4 tracks of take-no-prisoners, all-night banger-party music. 12” on the Ecstatic label, served up in a poly bag with an art insert.

Yellow Magic Orchestra

Blackdown
Those Moments

Longtime champion of London-centric soundsystem music from dubstep to garage and grime, Blackdown makes a break from previous album bouts with regular cohort Dusk to present a more personal statement that deals in what the artist describes as a “weightless” LP. Trim, Dusk and Farrah Jarral all feature.

Last Japan
LUNA

Last Japan’s long and fruitful relationship with Coyote Records (Chemist, Mella Dee) continues with this seven-track drop. LUNA is the producer’s lengthiest offering since 2014’s Ride With Us, and like that mixtape the cuts here alternate between expansive-but-not-quite-weightless soundscaping (‘Tether’) and icy-as-hell Eski instrumentals (‘Squad’). Conceived in winter and inspired by Bow, this is as grimy as they come.

Via Maris
Shelleys

New release from Via Maris released on cool DJ Beneath's record label, his first since releasing on cool label Livity Sound, and built for the likes of cool ex-club Plastic People. Shelleys is three tracks of bass heavy techno that still manages to show the breadth and depth of Via Maris's talents. 

Egyptian Lover
Egypt, Egypt

Egyptian Lover is an underrated 1980’s electro producer, whose work is being authoritatively compiled by Stones Throw next year. To set the scene for that, the label is releasing signature tune Egypt, Egypt (backed with ‘Girls’) on nothing less than white triangular (‘pyramid’) vinyl. What a stylish record!

Rose Kallal
Perseus

Tasty modular synth textures from Brooklyn-based Rose Kallal, her first release in several years but once again on We Can Elude Control. Being rather quietly intense dark ambient, it’s all thick and uneasy atmospheres filled with rumbling low-end hums, ominous distant noises and rumbling percussion. The modular side of things keeps everything in slow structural motion.

Ascion
Joy Dexon Club

This new release from Repitch Recordings co-bossman Ascion is described as a “mini LP”, as opposed to an EP. I can see why, as Joy Dexon Club’s six tracks have more of a narrative through-line than you’d expect from just a 12”. This is fast-blasting stuff, densely constructed acidic techno that grabs you and doesn’t let go. On Repitch.

Jan Jelinek & Computer Soup
Improvisations and Edits, Tokyo 26.09.2001

On the 26th September 2001 four men, Jan Jelinek and Computer Soup, sat on the floor of a Tokyo living room and improvised for three hours. They used a trumpet, and various toys and electronics. The group then edited separately, resulting in this, a weird and unique exploration of creativity.

D.K.
Distant Images

Antinote’s resident house music romancer D.K. is back with a new five track EP that furthers his smooth and sexy drift into 80s tinged splendour, where the island breeze is gentle and the sun sets slow. This is fantasy music for true dreamers, with synth voices that ring out clear and true to tug at the heartstrings and ping you into an opulent linen-suit fantasy all at once.

Boards of Canada
Music Has The Right To Children

Boards of Canada’s legendary debut LP tapped charmingly into its generation’s nostalgia for dodgy TV reception, public service announcements and unforgettable classroom mnemonics. It did so within a contemporary framework of analogue synthesisers and hip-hop rhythms, with a great ear for groove and melody. Today, the mutant, hybrid descendent of BoC’s yearning style is vaporwave, innit. Oh well.

Fossil Aerosol Mining Project
August 53rd

Another mystery missive from The Fossil Aerosol Mining Project, this one apparently alluding to previous release The Day 1982 Contaminated 1971, possibly by containing different treatments of some of the same original materials. Although with this level of looped-tapes and obscuring treatments, I wouldn’t sweat it: just sink into the deep crackling ambient murk. Released by The Helen Scarsdale Agency.

The Space Lady
The Space Lady's Greatest Hits

“Ethereal street musician who plays space music wearing a winged helmet”, says the website. It’s pretty bang on. The Space Lady has been playing her strange electronic music for some thirty to forty years, and now has the Greatest Hits she deserves. Weird, spacey and fun. The vinyl has a download code and the CD comes with a bonus CD.

Graham Dunning
Way Too Much Time

What glee! Graham Dunning has at last committed some of his wonderful Mechanical Techno tracks to vinyl, thus both closing the conceptual circle and providing DJ’s with some neat new club tools. Way Too Much Time is a four track EP, all constructed with that magical machine (look it up), though still functioning perfectly as a straight-up banger selection. 12” on Adaadat.

Odeko
Rose Tinted Vision Implant

Nice title. Reminds me of the parodic protag McNihil, from K. W. Jeter’s novel Noir, who has eye implants rendering everything in a 1930s film noir style. The corporate-omnipresence satire of such genres indeed runs through this album by Welsh producer Odeko, which is a rough, synthetic post-everything electro tinged with flutters of IDM.

Lucrecia Dalt
Anticlines

RVNG Intl. (Visible Cloaks, Kaitlyn Aurelia Smith) release the sixth LP from Colombian experimentalist Lucrecia Dalt. Drawing on her experience in geotechnical engineering as well as South American monster myths and geological phenomena, Dalt has created an album of curious, inquisitive electronic songs. Inga Copeland and Holly Herndon are invoked, albeit in a more skeletal guise, on the likes of ‘Tar’.

Robyn
Who Do You Love (Wolfgang Voigt Remixes) / Electric (Mad Professor Dub)

Robyn, queen of all she surveys, lights the beacon for Wolfgang Voigt and Mad Professor to ride through the night to her quarters. She unfurls the scroll and bequeaths them each a task: to remix a track of hers. Voigt, eager to win the favour of royalty, turns in two versions of her 2014 Kindness collaboration ‘Who Do You Love’. The ‘Gas Mix’ is a slow, mournful techno number; his ‘New Romantic Version’ a cleaner, poppier re-rub. Mad Professor flips 1999’s ‘Electric’ with trademark panache.

Mount Kimbie
Love What Survives - Remixes Part 1

Mount Kimbie’s fine LP Love What Survives has spawned two remix EPs, both of which drop in May. The first of these features three versions of King Krule collaboration ‘Blue Train Lines’, all of which come from the workhouse of Nina Kraviz. The big-shot DJ turns the rumbling post-punk of the original into a needling minimal techno workout for the ‘Main Mix’, then offers up two club-friendly re-rubs.

Tangerine Dream
Miracle Mile (Original Soundtrack)

Steve De Jarnatt's Miracle Mile is a niftily contained apocalypse movie in which our societal collapse takes place through one day/night cycle. The score was done by the usually chill Tangerine Dream, who ramped tension up through forty minutes of feverish synth phenomena. It's both a testament to the singular musical territory they were carving in the '80s and an emotive action movie booster.

See Without Eyes... now there’s a title to get the grey matter going. So far as I can tell, this latest product of L.A. three-piece The Glitch Mob contains no glitches at all. What it does contain is highly polished and truly excessive spring break EDM, with vocal contributions from the likes of Elohim, Tula and Arama.

Stasis
Fromtheoldtothenew

Peacefrog Records (Moodymann, Suburban Knights) reissue their 1996 LP by Stasis. Fromtheoldtothenew is classic Peacefrog fare, synthesising multiple strains of electronica into a groovy, faintly psychedelic end-product. The likes of ‘Skins’ and ‘Utopia Planetia’ are heady house jams in the vein of Future Sound Of London and B12. Elsewhere entries like ‘Moody Ol’ Teacher’ have see Stasis on a jazztronica/breaks flex that's certainly had an influence on the sound of Gilles Peterson's Brownswood Records.

t.e.s.o.
Costruzione 04

Italian duo t.e.s.o. return to Aperture Records with their second LP. As is hinted by its title and artwork, Costruzione 04 is a Brutalist record full of brooding ambiences and visceral sonics. Electroacoustic music, dark techno, IDM and industrial atmospheres combine in these nine challenging, foreboding tracks. The end result is akin to Autechre.
  • Genre(s):

Deadbeat
Wax Poetic For This Our Last Resolve

The tenth LP from Canadian electronic composer Deadbeat sees Scott Monteith searching for resolve and companionship in troubling times. Monteith reached out to friends like Gudrun Gut and Mike Shannon, asking them to send him messages of hope. He then interpreted them aurally, making the words he received the centrepiece of each track on this album of experimental techno. The resulting LP is a wise, heartwarming statement.

Two from the Timedance stable repress their first collaborative EP, one that dropped way back in the mists of 2016.

Acid Bowie

For those of you who like an element of lucky dip to your record buying, look no further. We are told this is called Acid Bowie, but we have very little information about this enigmatic 8-track white label release. The artist remains a mystery but there are also claims that this is an unheard Ziggy Stardust album recorded following a trip to space, whatever that means! Take from that what you will, but I imagine the words ‘acid’ and ‘trip’ are worth noting.

Penny Slinger: Out Of The Shadows

Soundtracking an avant garde film about British artist Penny Slinger is a bold move for a debut, but that's what Psychological Strategy Board—Paul Snowden and Maybury—have done.

To Alter and Affect

Switzerland’s -OUS Records (IOKOI, Senking) present a new seven-track tape by Italian producer Furtherset. To Alter And Affect seems to take its own advice. The twinkling modulars and synthesised voices of numbers like ‘Ask Your Existential Core’ slowly morph and shift as the track progresses until they end up somewhere far away from where they started. The effect is reminiscent of Fatima Al Qadiri, Clams Casino and LP1-era FKA Twigs.

A New Line (Related)
Our Lady Of Perpetual Fucking Succour

A long awaited follow up to the critically acclaimed self titled debut (Dead Albatross nominated no less), this is a four track EP of minimal techno repetition from Andrew Johnson (Hood/Remote Viewer). With roots in the deep dark dub of pioneers such as Terrence Dixon, Johnson has been influenced by recent collaborations with Miles Whittaker (Demdike Stare) and has stripped his sound back to ultra repetitive beats and hypnotic dance floor jams. There are four tracks on the vinyl plus extra remixes on the download (Beppu, Perfume Advert, Maxim Wolzyn, the Humble Bee and Northerner).   **INITIAL COPIES COME WITH BONUS SIGNED POSTCARD**

Herva
Kila

Herva makes dance music in from his base in rural Italy, at considerable remove from the ‘scene’. This, plus the fact that he primarily uses hand-tweaked hardware and software to produce his tracks, means that he sounds notably different from most house and techno producers: a little odder, a little wonkier. Kila is out on Planet Mu.

Arms and Sleepers
Find The Right Place

Though originally a post-rock group, the intercontinental duo Arms & Sleepers have been releasing much more focussed and concise music of late. This trend continues on Find The Right Place, a pretty LP that fuses the sounds of dream-pop, downtempo ambience, plunderphonics and glitchy electronica. The result is an album that lands somewhere between Bonobo’s Black Sands and The Avalanches’s Since I Left You.

Boy Harsher
Yr Body Is Nothing

Since the drop of their 2014 debut Lesser Man, Massachusetts duo Boy Harsher have gained enough traction to become one of the bigger synthwave acts of the decade.

Anyone who’s freaked out to their massive ‘Pain’ will find plenty more to enjoy on this broody yet danceable record.

Boy Harsher
Lesser Man (Extended Version)

Previously issued on wax by aufnahme + wiedergabe and as a cassette by both Soft Science and Night People, the latest iteration of Boy Harsher’s Lesser Man is out via their solo imprint Nude Club. There’s been quite a clamour around this record - ‘Pain’ has racked up almost two million YouTube hits at the time of writing - and it’s easy to see why it’s proved so popular. As well as darkwave/synthwave masterclasses like ‘Run’ and ‘Modulations’, there are also droning horrorscapes (‘Crimea’) and plenty of poppier moments. This version includes a remix by The Soft Moon.

D.A.F.
Die Kleinen Und Die Bösen

The 1980 sophomore LP from the Deutsch Amerikanische Freundschaft gets the reissue treatment from Groenland (Neu!, William Fitzsimmons). The A-side, produced by Conny Plank, finds the common ground between Suicide, Einstuerzende Neubauten and the Pet Shop Boys, while the B-side showcases the fury of the band’s live show. Any record that can count itself as a favourite of Simon Reynolds is going to be worth your time.

Lovecraft and features narration from cult graphic novelist Alan Moore. Music from the film will be released as two EPs.

Camila Fuchs
Heart Pressed Between Stones

...I guess ATP isn't completely dead? Camila Fuchs releases her second album Heart Pressed Between Two Stones, on the label arm of the Arsene Wenger of music festivals. Triumphant electronics and pained vocals make for a very intense listening experience as informed by pop music as it is experimentalism.

Shorelights
Ancient Lights

Rod Modell AKA Deepchord (see also  Echospace, Waveform Transmissions, Transformations) has hooked up with the two blokes from Detroit’s nospectacle, Chris McNamara and Walter Wasacz to become Shorelights to make some ambient techno. Amber Lights is a passionate exploration of space, body and mind. Limited edition double 12” on Subwax bcn.

It sees them back on the Chicago-based Thrill Jockey label and is a star-studded affair featuring Justin Vernon, The National’s Aaron and Bryce Dessner, Zach Condon of Beirut, Spank Rock and Sam Amidon to name a few.

Carpenter Brut
Leather Teeth

Take synthwave, and make it a bit metal. That's what this is, those are the darks arts in which Carpenter Brut indulge. Probably the easiest point of comparison is early Justice, in particular the excellent Planisphère. Released by Carloline and the vinyl comes in a gatefold.
  • Genre(s):
  • Electronic / Electro / IDM / EBM

The Black Dog
Post-Truth

Post-Truth is the counterpart album to The Black Dog’s forlorn new Black Daisy Wheel. Unlike its ambient companion, this one is all percussive teeth, at lingering dancefloor tempos. On the more minimal cuts such as ‘FWB’ and ‘Anticipation Occupation’, the tone is especially oppressive, with shuddering rhythms driving clouds of unease. Elsewhere things tend to be slower and more melodic - ‘The Patti Smith Disaster’ ‘The Truth is In the Post’.

Lo Five
PROPAGATE

Liverpool’s Emotion Wave has only previously released compilations, so Lo Five must be up to something to be responsible for EW’s first single-artist release. Having impressed with cuts on both previous EW releases, Lo Five shows their range on Propagate. There are hyperactive, Human League-style electro drubs, dreamy electronica reminiscent of Carmen Villain, spare piano pieces and more across these ten tracks.

Rival Consoles
Persona

Erased Tapes' cool dance guy Ryan Lee West drops down his newest Rival Consoles record! Making serene IDM with a pounding heart to guide it, Persona sees him do a Jam City by exploring the possibilities of shoegaze. Expect pedals and a heightened sense of drama as he experiments with melody, beats and sometimes beatlessness.

  • Electronic / Electro / IDM / EBM

Arandel
Turbatrix

“Ok then, back to basics/Grab your shell-toes and Arundel’s Turbatrix.” Who’d ever have thought that Robbie Williams would have liked his techno served up by the kooks at Sheffield’s Computer Club and shrouded in the sort of heady, claustrophobic ambiences you’d tend to associate with an Ostgut Ton release? Still, you heard the man. Take both pills. F*ck the matrix.

Vanessa Amara
Manos

The most elegant of noise labels, Posh Isolation, continue their recent descent into kinder, more gentler experiments. Vanessa Amara made the lovely drone record You're Welcome Here a while ago, the duo offering low-key streams of sound with the occasional dramatic and bell-tolling payoff. They're back with Manos which sounds as shiny and beautified as many of the recent synthings the label's been putting out, such as the wonderful Buy Corals Online.

Prostitutes
Aluminum Garage

Cleveland native James Donadio – also bravely known as Prostitutes – is back with 'Aluminium Garage', a thrilling EP that staggers joyfully between mid-tempo, early electro jams and modern techno. This is a multi-layered record, complete with sub-heavy kicks, blasts of bongo and deliciously warped piano chords. 
  • Genre(s):
  • Electronic / Electro / IDM / EBM

Makeness
Loud Patterns

Loud Patterns is the debut album by London-based Makeness (Kyle Molleson). It’s quite loud, and it entails a lot of various musical patterns. With its colourful, swaggering art-rock approach to dance and electro-indie, the record sounds like a confident collaboration between Caribou and Hot Chip.

Russell Haswell
Tongue Dancer '85

Someone let noisy troublemaker Russell Haswell into the famous EMS Elektronmusikstudion in Stockholm, where he had a play around on their marvellous collection of synthesisers. Typically searing business from Haswell here. Tongue Dancer ‘85 is a single-track, single-sided 12”, limited to 300 copies.

Klara Lewis
Ett

Sinking into the abyss with Klara Lewis. Ett is a the debut full length from the producer. This one is a deep sea odyssey, with Klara delving into expansive sub-60 hertz territory and the grainy upper middle. There are field recorded manipulations, loops, samples and electronics that seamlessly blend the raw matter with the digital to make a whole new thing. Out on vinyl LP from Editions Mego.

Oto Hiax
Oto Hiax

Oto Hiax is Mark Clifford of Seefeel and Scott Gordon of Loops Haunt: eg. two proper electronic sound professionals. This record, the debut full-length release of the project, mixes the experimental textural approach typical of the label (Editions Mego) with a love for harmony and melodic elements, resulting in a rich and lovely listen. Double LP release.

SELA.
homemade jams from jules & jessica's kitchen

homemade jams from jules & jessica’s kitchen seems to be a pretty representative title for SELA.’s second album: these tracks surely do feel like they’ve been put together on the fly, prioritising feeling over finesse. And it works: this is an album of uniquely strange and special weirdo R&B. Out on Error Broadcast.

  • Electronic / Electro / IDM / EBM

J.K.
GEA

More unique constructions on this double vinyl from JK (aka Jodey Kendrick). Clattering, stiff-but-funky drums come under attack from swooping bass bombs while spectral synths hover in the distance. A singular take on dark electronic music which is suffused with groove and a freewheeling sense of adventure rather than po-faced attitude.

COH
COHGS

COHGS is a collection of COH material that has crept out in various ways and on various labels over the years. This material is defined by its relatively rare inclusion of vocals and lyrics, from an array of collaborators including Little Annie, John Balance and Peter Christopherson. Various approaches are taken, all adding texture and detail to the mysterious sonic pictures of COH. On Editions Mego.

UnicaZürn
Transpandorem

UnicaZürn is the imaginative sound collaboration between Stephen Thrower and David Knight, both of whom have participated in some notable experimental musics (with Coil, Lydia Lunch and more). Transpandorem, their new LP for Touch, drifts around some spacey territory with synths, mellotron, guitar, clarinet, leaving behind a music that is hard to pin down.

mmph
Dear God

Young South Korean Bostonian mmph (one Sae Heum Han) wanders through uneasy drama-scapes on his debut mini-album Dear God for Tri Angle. Momentary brushes of stereo-flitting textures, stop-start percussion and other sounds processed beyond recognition are guided by ebbs of cinematic synth and sampler. Serious stuff.
  • Genre(s):
  • Electronic / Electro / IDM / EBM

Distant Animals
Lines

Very intellectual drone from Distant Animals. Daniel Alexander Hignell is an artist, musician, and more. Lines is inspired by such greats of minimalism as La Monte Young and Morton Feldman. Most intriguingly, this comes with 4 postcards showing "land-art interventions" made during the creation of the album. Love a bit of interdisciplinary art me.
