박혜진 Park Hye Jin

Grischa Lichtenberger
KAMILHAN, il y a péril en la demeure

The final instalment in a series of five works by Grischa Lichtenberger that began back in 2015. KAMILHAN, il y a péril en la demeure sees the artist again experimenting with pop and hip-hop structures, breaking down and reconstituting rhythms into intricate patterns and then shooting them through with melody. 

Gabor Lazar
Source

Dancefloor experimentalist (with the emphasis very much on ‘mentalist’) Gábor Lázár arrives on Planet Mu with his latest studio album, Source. It sounds like the work of an artist who’s always concentrated on the future taking a minute to revisit his influences and first loves, and the results sound absolutely amazing in clubs.

Marja Ahti
The Current Inside

Centred around the theme of currents, both natural and artificial, The Current Inside is the second studio album by Finnish-based composer and musician Marja Ahti for the Hallow Ground label.

John Maus
We Must Become The Pitiless Censors Of Ourselves

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

Drew McDowall
The Third Helix

Drew McDowall, formerly of Coil, once again delves into the concepts that drove those legendary sonic explorers. On The Third Helix, McDowall experiments with dark and twisted electronics, creating eight tracks that are ideal for looking inward. Intense and visceral, this is music from the most severe of trances.

Scanner
An Ascent

Following a recent lockdown live show broadcast on YouTube, during which DiN label head Ian Boddy reached out to Scanner’s Robin Rimbaud, An Ascent is adapted from the improvised modular synth set that he performed.

Look, any record with a song on it called ‘Mandate My Ass’ would be popular round these parts regardless of what it sounded like. The fact that Sansibar’s White Swan EP also happens to be a deliciously dark set of coldwave, minimal synth and EBM tunes just makes us like it even more. White Swan is out on excellent Mancunian imprint Natural Sciences (Textasy, DJ Seinfeld).

Pye Corner Audio
Where Things Are Hollow 2

Having been musically active for a decade at this point, Martin Jenkins follows up his 2017 Pye Corner Audio EP Where Things Are Hollow with a direct successor. Consisting of three brand new tracks and a John Talabot remix of ‘Resist’, Where Things Are Hollow 2 nearly straddles Jenkins’ two main modus operandi - dreamy ambient textures and loose, limbre dance music. 

worriedaboutsatan
Time Lapse

worriedaboutsatan, no spaces, all lower case, is Bradford bloke Gavin Miller. He mixes post rock, ambient and techno music to create foggy yet propulsive soundscapes using guitar, 303s and 808s. Time Lapse is his 7th long-player but first for US electronic label n5MD, known for putting out affecting electronic records. RIYL GAS, Explosions in the Sky or early Biosphere.

SOPHIE
OIL OF EVERY PEARL'S UN-INSIDES

‘Oil Of Every Pearl’s Un-Insides’ is the most realised release yet from Scottish electronic artist Sophie. Those of us slightly wary of what initially seemed like an irony heavy take on pop have had such concerns demolished. What we have here is maximalist, experimental pop full of garbled hooks and great metallic thwacks. The LP is pressed on red vinyl and released via the label Transgressive.

The Other People Place
Lifestyles Of The Laptop Café

The long wished-for repress of Lifestyles of the Laptop Café finally materialises, fifteen years after the late James Stinson of Drexciya renown released the classic anonymously as the Other People Place on Warp. It’s a seamless, calming and moving piece of downtempo electronica that has become a key album in dance music history, and should well be a staple item in any home listening fan’s collection with its renewed availability.

Not Now
Within The Beyond

The Tapeworm is a cassette-only label that has previously released small run tapes by the likes of Simon Fisher-Turner and Jay Glass Dubs.

Cucina Povera
Tyyni

Cucina Povera is the name given to a particularly frugal form of cooking in rural Italy. It is also the name used by Finnish-born artist and musician Maria Rossi for her music making.

Rone
Room With A View

Room With A View sees French electronic musician and producer Rone recording on his own with just electronic equipment, like he used to when he started out. There is a collaboration here though, but it’s with the Parisian Théâtre du Châtelet and dance collective La Horde along with members of Ballet National de Marseille, for a live show. The album was inspired by discussions of environmental and societal collapse.

Pocket Signs
Signs of The Times

Pocket Signs is a collaboration between Matt Cargill of splattered jazz noise fiends Sly & The Family Drone and kaftan clad modular synth botherer Dan Jones aka UKAEA. Signs of the Times is a rambling, spooky noise injection straight to the dome. It’s cut-up drums, fractured vocals, heaving bass and spangled electronics offering a gateway to immortality (maybe). The pair recorded it in one afternoon fuelled by liquid courage and a particular brand of sugar-free cola. Good to know they're taking care of their gnashers.

Flotation - Special Request Remix

The Grid were the project of Dave Ball (better known as the moustachioed half of Soft Cell) and producer Richard Norris (now better known as Beyond the Wizard's Sleeve).

Some of the jams here come off like smoother versions of the DMX Krew electro sound while others are on the way to Dâm-Funk territory.

Drexciya
Harnessed The Storm

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

Tod Dockstader
Aerial 1

Tod Dockstader's Aerial series came about due to the composers fascination with AM radio. He recorded hours of static, buzz, dialogue and whatever else he found by turning the dial and mutated it into a series of drones, atmospheres that lure the listener deep into his world. The fact that he produced this at a time when he was supposed to be deep into retirement just exemplifies the endless creativity of the man. 

Darkstar
Civic Jams

Returning after a five-year break into a very different political and social reality than the one they left, electronic music duo Darkstar deliver their fourth studio record Civic Jams.

Ben Lukas Boysen
Mirage

Not, as I was hoping, an entire recreation of the 1982 Fleetwood Mac album but the latest opus from Berlin-based (where else?) composer Ben Lukas Boysen (Hecq). His previous work Spells gained him lots of admirers including Jon Hopkins who remixed a track. Mirage is intended to do the opposite of the heavily programmed Spells and make an album where the human touch is visible. Like the title suggests, it is intended to be somewhat of an aural illusion to the listener.

FFT
BRUK1

The maiden release for newly established experimental label BRUK comes from FFT who first appeared with a mysterious 12" on Uncertainty Principle, followed by one for The Trilogy Tapes. It has since been revealed to be a nom-de-plume of producer Josh Thompson aka Alma Construct (Super Hexagon Records). The three-track BRUK1 sees Thompson cover clinical minimalism, trouser flapping subs, deconstructed jungle onslaughts and frantic, gnarly soundsystem botherers.

Synthase

Aphex Twin
Come To Daddy

Aphex Twin’s Come To Daddy EP really shouldn’t require any introduction: half an hour of the wild range of creativity that Richard D. James had to offer circa 1997. The death-jungle of the nasty title track, the super-advanced digital percussion rain-shower of ‘Bucephalus Bouncing Ball’, and the lush beauty of ‘Flim’... and that's just the half of it. Plus you get the infamous artwork in full 12” size.
