The third in Soul Jazz Records’ series of compilations exploring multifarious delights in the fertile world of 70s and early 80s German experimental rock, pop and electronic music. Several familiar names here - Popul Vuh, Cluster, Roedelius, Neu!, La Düsseldorf, Harmonia, and Agitation Free. However this volume delves even further than before into the outer reaches of Krautrock and Kosmische related activity with tracks from A.r. & Machines, Michael Bundt,  Achim Reichel, Pyrolator and many more. Triple LP or double CD. Klasse!

ADULT.
Detroit House Guests - The Remixes

ADULT.’s project Detroit House Guests, released earlier this year, featured an array of collaborators who were invited to live and record together, with Lichens, Michael Gira and a Nitzer Ebb member among those involved. Now even more names get added to the project on this remix EP, where the likes of Liars and Silent Servant have created fresh remixes of the material. On Mute.

Clark
Honey Badger / Pig

Clark knocks out a heavy pair of homages - one to the honey badger, a fierce little mustelid famous for behaving as if it’s all out of bubblegum and one to the less exotic, more industrially-farmed pig. Though still of the gentler production style Clark has developed in the last few years, this material hearkens a decade back to the most muscular of his Turning Dragon period. Aggressively playful techno-IDM.

VONO
Dinner Fur 2

Anyone with the slightest interest in 1980s synthwave ought to be acquainted with Vono, a pair of German brothers active in the late seventies and early eighties. Their weapons of choice: dark, danceable beats, simple bass sequences, metallic synth textures and yelped lyrics. Immaculately stylish for their time, and perhaps rather provocative too. One for your 'Best Reissues of 2017 Part 2' list!

The Orb + Fenin / Bus
The Orb + Fenin / Bus

God bless The Orb, always one of the finer production squads within the ambient house / dub-electronica works. They’ve recently celebrated the twentieth birthday of Berlin’s Shitkatapult label with mix-CD, and here they excerpt some mixed material from Fenin and Bus, accompanied by an exclusive Orb track. Nice little 12” on Shitkatapult.

The Orb Chronicles (20 Years Of Shitkatapult)

God bless The Orb, always one of the finer production squads within the ambient house / dub-electronica works. Main Orb-men Alex Paterson and Thomas Fehlmann are celebrating the twentieth birthday of the Shitkatapult label with a big super-mix of classic tracks from throughout the label’s history. Lots of goodies in this tracklisting. CD with one of four different artworks randomly assigned.

Mark Van Hoen
Nightvision

You may remember Mark van Hoen from such experimental electronics projects as Seefeel and The Locust, or from. On Nightvision though, he returns to solo work to follow up on recent releases on Editions Mego and The Tapeworm. This is a set of semi-ambient, synth-driven exploratory pieces, released in a limited edition on the Saint Marie label.

Lloyd Cole
1D Electronics 2012-2014

1D Electronics 2012 - 2014 is the first solo release of Lloyd Cole’s electronic dabblings. We’ve heard plenty from him in pop mode, and some of his electronics alongside Hans-Joachim Roedelius, but this is the first record of this kind. Each piece is studiously sequenced, moving through subtle modulations as they flourish. On Bureau B.

John Maus
Screen Memories

John Maus returns! Six years have passed since ‘We Must Become The Pitiless Censors’ -- during which time Maus has toured, released a rarities collection and finished his doctorate in Political Philosophy. He sounds as towering and stately as ever on Screen Memories; the record is another personal one which will haunt and invigorate. He even designed and built the modular synths he plays on it. Polyphony abounds! LP / CD on Ribbon music. 

Bicep
Bicep

This is Bicep's debut album, following up a bunch of 12" records, selling thousands of vinyl, generating millions of streams and being played by just about everyone. One of their 12' releases: "Just" earned this electrifying duo the title of Track of the Year and has been dropped by the likes of Jamie XX.  

Zombie Zombie
Livity

Zombie Zombie return from some time doing film scores and er, music for a circus show, with a fully-fledged studio album in the form of Livity. It's a deep experimental trip as usual for these guys, featuring remarkable combinations: some vintage French prog here, some free-jazz sax blast there, some hip-hop swagger on this track, some krautrock synth-pulse on that. Livity is released by Versatile.

Carmen Villain
Borders (Klara Lewis Remix) / Red Desert (Biosphere Remix)

This little 12” contains a veritable cornucopia of talent. As well as Carmen Villain herself, we also have Jenny Hval, making a feature on Borders, and the remixing /  reconstructing talents of Klara Lewis and Biosphere, each offering refreshing new takes on tracks from Villain’s album Infinite Avenue. 12” from Smalltown Supersound.

Steve Moore
Mayhem (Official Motion Picture Soundtrack)

Mayhem (Official Motion Picture Soundtrack) is by Steve Moore from Pennsylvanian synthwave duo Zombi. Mayhem is Steve Moore’s 5th soundtrack. His ability to lure the listener to the edge of their seat, increasing the fear within, as he builds the tension with his analogue synth sounds has made him one of the most wanted horror soundtrack composers out there.

More Than Machine Remixes

More Than Machine is an old 90’s track by Runningonair that was never actually finished or released, featuring drum loops and computer-voice text. Rather than leaving it to gather dust for eternity though, the track has not only been finished, it has been handed out to stacks of interesting artists (from Howlround and Farmer Glitch to Kemper Norton and Clive Henry) for stylistically varied remixing! Only sixty copies around..

Klaus Schulze & Pete Namlook
The Dark Side Of The Moog – Vol. 9-11

The Dark Side Of The Moog Vol. 9 - 11 continues the quite frankly epic archival effort to tunnel through the mass recordings that were made when the legendary Klaus Schulze started working with Pete Namlook in the 90’s using an array of Moog synthesisers. This 5CD box-set is a hell of a trip through the spaceways, and getting this much material allows a stronger insight into the pair’s creative process. On MIG Music.

Kyle Dixon & Michael Stein
Stranger Things 2 (A Netflix Original Series Soundtrack)

The SURVIVE members return with their soundtrack to the second series of the Netflix sci-fi show. Recalling the classic synth scores of Tangerine Dream and John Carpenter is part of their remit, but this isn’t just lazy nostalgic simulation - there’s oodles of inventiveness, sensitivity and drama here. And one can only imagine Dixon and Stein had an absolute blast making it. As Dustin might say, you will not resist these pearls! Jewel case CD or lavish double LP in both black and clear/splatter editions.

Ben Lukas Boysen
Golden Times 1

Ben Lukas Boysen hands over his tracks Golden Times 1 and ‘Nocturne 4’ (taken from the album Spells) to both Max Cooper and Tim Hecker(!) for some vivid and idiosyncratic reworkings. The EP is rounded out with a new Boysen original in the form of ‘Evensong’. 12” on Erased Tapes.

Alessandro Cortini & Masami Akita
Untitled

Masami Akita (King Merzbow himself) and Alessandro Cortini (of Nine Inch Nails) both own an EMS Synthi, and this Untitled release finds them each using the EMS exclusively to produce four sides of seething noisy electronics. The vintage analogue equipment is totally exploited, with vivid results that will interest synth fans and noise fans in equal measure. Double LP on Important Records, presented in a metallic shimmer-print sleeve.

Grayson Gilmour
Red Bull Music Academy Library Series, Vol. 1

The latest cult area of music that Red Bull Music Academy are extending their well-funded reach into is library music, that hidden and quasi-anonymous other world of sounds. They’ve started to commission new ‘library music’ from known artists, and the first one of the series is by New Zealand’s Grayson Gilmour. Interesting experimental instrumentals, also featuring a remix by Paul Jebanasam.

Personable
Oyster

Tracks released by Ged Gengras under his Personable moniker tend to fizz with fresh energy: probably a consequence of his ‘live-in-the-studio’ production approach. House-garage-techno jams with a bounce and a punch, from a real synth talent. 4 tracks on Oyster, which is released by Black Opal.

Mount Kimbie
Love What Survives

As the third album from British electronic duo Mount Kimbie, September 8th released Love What Survives promises to be their most expansive and ambitious yet. Featuring cameos from the Mercury-winning James Blake, just the tracklist highlights the steep progression of this band since their previous 2013 album. Off-kilter indie-dance.

Diggin In The Carts : A Collection Of Pioneering Japanese Video Game Music

A huge collection of 8-bit and 16-bit bleeps and bloops collated by Diggin In The Carts co-director Nick Dwyer, and Hyperdub’s Kode 9. Comprised of thirty four tracks taken from legendary titles released on classic Japanese video game systems - from Nintendo’s Famicom to Sega’s Mega Drive, as well as from earlier platforms less familiar in the West, like the MSX. Obviously ideal for video game enthusiasts, though anyone even vaguely interested in the history of electronic music will no doubt be enthralled by the diversity of melody and tone forced out of such limited chips. Available on CD and digital for now; make sure to keep an eye out for the vinyl release, scheduled for early 2018.

Kaukolampi
I

On this meeting of worlds, techno is spiked with various other sources - krautrock, drone, cinematic synthscapes and electronica - to tell a sombre and unnerving story. Kaukolampi here explore a diverse range of moods and sonic environments, whipping the listener into a subdued, but significant hypnosis. 

bvdub
Heartless

Beloved in the concrete court of Norman is bvdub, the heartbreaking ambient techno artist responsible for a slew of the loveliest releases. Real name Brock Van Wey, his work is both harnessing and expansive, bringing the listener close while scoping out big natural landscapes (check that one on the front cover). Heartless is the twenty-ninth record in this project, if you can believe it, and is purposed to sound a little huger in its layers.

Necro Deathmort
Overland

After releases on Distraction, Extreme Ultimate, and Rocket, London based two piece Necro Deathmort bring their 8th full length to extreme label Profound Lore. Sharing similar traits to acts such as Ulver, The Haxan Cloak, Atari Teenage Riot and Dalek, they are genre melders, with free reign across heavy synthetic beats, dark noise, crushing doom and drone.

Bruno Spoerri
Voice Of Taurus

A nine-track record from the ever expanding mind of Bruno Spoerri. Another release that shows just how good improvised synth music can be and a great reminder that sci-fi soundtrack synths and futuristic-funk actually can be a cracking combination. Voice Of Taurus is available on vinyl LP from ‘We Release Whatever The Fuck We Want Records’.

Bruno Spoerri & Reto Weber
The Sound Of The UFOs

Collaboration between Swiss electronic and jazz musician Bruno Spoerri and percussionist Reto Weber made available for the first time since its release in 1978. Taking the biggest selection of synths you can imagine they take you on an intergalactic journey through improvisations that touch on krautrock, techno and spaced out electronics.

Rafael Toral
Moon Field

Highly skilled and storied Portugese sound artist Rafael Toral makes a welcome appearance on Lawrence English’s Room40 label. The sound field Toral employs on this latest album is stark and clinical, but the tones vibrating within are etched deep with studious character, whether it’s a measured guitar drone or a clipped sax ramble.

Bibio
Phantom Brickworks

What has Bibio in store for us this time? Lo-fi pastoral electronics, hi-fi Clarkalike bangers, dollops of disco or some of his peculiar, warm-spirited hybrids of the lot? In fact, Stephen Wilkinson’s new offering unexpectedly consists of semi-improvised, rather long pieces (up to 17 minutes). As the title Phantom Brickworks sort of suggests, these unhurried fellows reflect on the shifting meanings and associations of places as time passes. Another feather for Steve’s bow!

Martin Hannett
Homage to Delia Derbyshire

Martin Hannett is the producer who did all your favourite Manchester post-punk records, but check this out: he also created his own work. Homage to Delia Derbyshire is unreleased material from 1982, made with various synths and electronics. This music feels very intimate and personal, partly because it was not made with public release in mind. Really interesting stuff, released at last by Ozit Dandelion.

Moon Zero
Relationships Between Inner & Outer Space

Moon Zero’s new album, the grandly-titled Relationships Between Inner & Outer Space, begins with a track named for Iceland’s ‘Keflavik’ airport that shimmers and swells into a dense mass of all sorts of melodic and textural sounds, sourced from instruments, tape loops, field recordings and more. And so it continues, in lush Denovali style.

Emo Kid
Gqomtera EP

Durban, South Africa based producer Emo Kid explores Sgubhu and Gqom on his new EP Gqomtera. While Gqom is defined by its intense rhythmic percussion, Sgubhu lightens things up to a allow a more airy party vibe to push through. Aimed directly at the dance floor. 12" on Gqom Oh! Comes with bonus download code.

Bonebrokk
Hollow Systems

Bonebrokk is honoured to be the first artist to ever be released as a vinyl edition on the Trial & Error label. Hollow Systems is a pounding techno trip in four tracks, bolstered by a fifth track in the form of a Jay Glass Dubs re-versioning of ‘Choose Ur Illusion’. What a treat! Sleek and powerful dancefloor destroyers.

Errata

Kit Records and Timglaset Magazine have joined forces to provide you with this combined zine and tape compilation! The theme is Errata, so various artists have contributed pieces that feature (or are about) failures, errors and glitches. The tape includes tracks from Mary Lattimore, Jake Meginsky and Disasterpeace among others. Limited to 150 tape + zine copies.

Gajek
17

Gajek is no stranger to electronic sound explorations, citing influence from Germany's elite players from the last four or five decades. These strands have been pulled together to create an enthralling work of dizzying beats, sublime textures and borderline ritualistic grace that isn't afraid to get dark either.

The Neon Judgement
Cockerill-Sombre

The Neon Judgement are another brick in Belgium’s sizzling early-80’s EBM / synth-wave scene. Their Cockerill-Sombre EP, released in 1983, contains their biggest hit ‘The Fashion Party’, which is deliciously cold and sleazily aggressive. Remastered audio pressed to 12” vinyl, packaged with an insert with photos and new liner notes by the band’s own Dirk Da Davo. On Dark Entries.

Pop Ambient 2018

The release of Kompakt’s annual Pop Ambient compilation is always one of the loveliest musical events of the year: always a warm, luscious swirl of pulsating beats and shimmering synths from some of the best producers in the game. Pop Ambient 2018 features exclusive cuts from Max Wurden & Tore Pfeiffer, The Orb, Kaito and many more. Twelve tracks of goodness on Kompakt.

Odonis Odonis
No Pop

Stark stuff here on Odonis Odonis’ fourth album release. The set-up for the No Pop recording sessions was sparse, with just a basic array of synths and drum machines used to put meat on the bones of musical sketches and ideas. The results are lots of fun, despite the air of exciting malevolence that hangs over the project. On Felte.

Traxman
Tekvision

Even by the standards of Chicago’s footwork scene, Traxman is a prolific musicmaker. What’s even more impressive is that pretty much everything he does is good. His umpteenth LP, out via Teklife (who else?), is another expertly rendered collection of 160-bpm goodness. Rising star DJ Earl features on the groovy 'Be Gagen’.

Gel Set

Autumns
Dyslexia Tracks

Autumn is upon us. Furthermore, Autumns is upon us. That’s Christian Donaghey of Derry, Northern Ireland, dropping the lengthy vinyl “EP” Dyslexia Tracks via Touch Sensitive. Over forty-odd minutes, Donaghey chucks into the cauldron influences from post-punk, noise and dancefloor experimentalism. The results are as aggressive and filthy as anybody familiar with his previous work would expect.

Hvide Sejl, Varg & F. Valentin
Brazil

The original edition of Brazil was released as four cassettes. Therefore this 2LP reissue, gathering together all four parts, is very necessary. Brazil is the work of three Scandinavian electronic wizards - Hvide Sejl (Loke Rahbek), Varg and F. Valentin. Over the four sides expect to hear the span of electronic to organic: sun-kissed ambience, industrial pounding, and works on synth and piano.

DJ Tre
The Underdogg EP

Kode 9’s Hyperdub continues to shine its light on Chicago’s innovative footwork scene. A member of the city’s Teklife crew, DJ Tre’s four tracks unveil his largely as yet unheard production talent while displaying how varied the form has become. From sampling acid master Chip E to throwing in jungle breaks, it's a breakneck ride through the sound of the city’s South Side.

Isnaj Dui
Poiesis

Isnaj Dui, aka experimental musician Katie English, presents her new full-length Poiesis. True to form, she continues to blend sparse motifs created from all sorts of electronic and acoustic sources. Her trademark Orientalist flute is present, if less so than previously. Slow and artful, English covers a spectrum from playful to quite sinister and tense. Poiesis comes in a hand-stamped sleeve, as with all Rural Colours releases.

Lady Chann
Hard Drive

Lady Chann is fierce out at the front of this banging tune, produced by Rapha in a fully-fledged tight modern dancehall style. The Hard Drive 12” features the main track and a bonus Riddim on the A-side and vocal and instrumental versions of a R3LL remix on the flip. Stripped-back and powerful material, on Kick + Clap.

Muslimgauze
Return of Black September

There has never been and probably never will be an artist like Muslimgauze. A British experimental musician deeply influenced by the history of the Muslim world who released an enormous amount of music in a very short time.  Return of Black September (the title might sound poetic but it references a notorious Palestinian terrorist organisation) was a brooding 68 minute piece that used soul samples, dub and electronica. This vinyl and CD re-press contains two tracks not on the original release.  

Muslimgauze
Minaret Speaker

The Muslimgauze project is famed for two things in particular: a very high quality of work, and a very high quantity of work. Minaret Speaker is more or less a new release (a few tracks had a 7” in 1996, but other than that, all unheard), and features his trademark digital distortion, clattering breaks, and samples sourced from the Middle East. CD on Staalplaat.

Muslimgauze
Sulaymaniyah

Sulaymaniyah is album number 92 (yes, 92) from the very prolific ethnic electronic musician Muslimgauze, aka Bryn Jones. Originally released in 2008, nine years after his death, it was one of a number of previously unreleased recordings he’s sent to the Staalplaat label before his untimely death in 1999.

Moebius Schneider
Kunsthalle Düsseldorf

Available on 12” and limited to 500 copies, Bureau B releases the only collaborative effort between Dieter Moebius (1947-2015), and Stefan Schneider; a performance at Düsseldorf Sounds Festival at Kunsthalle Düsseldorf in 2007. Having met only once before the performance to quickly discuss their approach, the material on this record is entirely improvised. Individually, both artists have released some seriously influential electronic music; Moebius as one half of krautrock/ambient duo Cluster, and Schneider as an ex-member of To Rococo Rot, and Kreidler. Expect texture-focused sonic experimentation from two expert German synthesists. 

Tom Ware
Tom Ware

Smoking hot 80s boogie rarity alert! Dark Entries have really come up trumps here, digging out the supremely desirable 1983 album from cult synth operator Tom Ware. This is bold, razor sharp machine music that stands up to contemporary electro with staggering confidence – in another universe this would have been a formative album for the likes of DMX Krew and every other electro aficionado.

Dave Clarke
The Desecration of Desire

Heeeeeee’s back folks! Yes, its Dave Clarke, the big-style techno producer, returning with his first album for fourteen years. And it's an interesting one, reflecting various interests beyond techno that Dave has been honing over the years, including new wave, industrial and noise. Lots of voices turn up on The Desecration Of Desire, with guest vocalists including Mark Lanegan, Anika and Gazelle Twin. On Skint.

IAMX
Unfall

Founding member of Sneaker Pimps left to concentrate on his solo project IAMX in 2003 and is now releasing his ninth full length. Unfall is dark, glitchy, techno inspired, and nearing industrialised in its cold synthetics. Ghost in the machine stuff that’ll drag you through a cold future. LP on Orphic.

Perturbator
New Model

The forlorn legacy of Vangelis’ Blade Runner soundtrack sinks ever deeper into the world of Gen-Y EDM acrobatics, courtesy of Perturbator, an artist to whom the slightest restraint must seem an exceptionally old-fashioned notion. On New Model, the Parisian offers up six cuts of hyperbolically sour cybergrapes, packed to the gills with multiple tempos, motifs and interludes. Aggressive, edgy, dropstep electronica for cyberpunk parties.

Becker & Mukai
Eyes

On 'Eyes', Becker and Mukai turn their attention to towards a clean, sparsely populated form of psychedelic techno, pulling in elements of krautrock, ritual music, acid house and electronica. Both producers have numerous other projects, but this collaboration represents them on an exploratory journey together.

Hologram Teen
Marsangst

Hologram Teen is the new project of former Stereolab keyboard player Morgane Lhote. Marsangst/Hex These Rules mashes together motorik electronica and disco. Fans of acts such as Add N To X, Death In Vegas, Stereolab, Ghost Box Recordings, Deadmau5, Yello, ESG and French house are likely to dig this.

Fantastic Twins
Obakodomo

The Twins (as they were previously known) have got a little self confidence and are now Fantastic Twins. Good for ‘em. Here’s their debut LP out on Optimo Music. Obakodomo is composed as a soundtrack to a contemporary dance performance done by dancers for an audience of toddlers. It’s a transportative soundtrack of playful, frightening and strange sounds.

WK569
Omaggio a Marino Zuccheri

Founded ten years ago by Federico Troncatti, Ezio Martinazzi and Pier Enrico Villa, WK569 was established as a kind of real-time experiment in sonic architecture and alternative methods of music construction. This single-sided 12” record Omaggio a Marino Zuccheri is a tribute to pioneering sound engineer Marino Zuccheri. 

Lee Gamble
Mnestic Pressure

Lee Gamble’s first full-length in three years is a record of nuanced edge-of-the-dancefloor music that finds a fitting home on Hyperdub. Gamble describes Mnestic Pressure as a record that seeks to find order in an increasingly chaotic world and regain a sense of self separate from the images one is constantly subject to in 2017. This manifests itself as an album of aquatic electronica and Burial-esque post-rave stylings.

Circa 2000
Thoughts In Vias

William Wiffen brings us his debut album as Circa 2000. Think of Depeche Mode meeting Roosevelt to groove on the Autobahn toward analogue heaven. It’s cheeky as hell and twice as funky, slick and warm electro for city nights. LP released on Central Processing Unit’s subsidiary Computer Club.

2 Katara
Break At Home

The search engine results for 2 Katara are split between this musical project and one particular luxury yacht, a nonsensical thing that somehow feels like it makes sense while you listen to the weird fractured music on Break At Home. Strange, amateurish new-agey synth-pop mixes with confusing samples, delicate acoustic guitar and other unknowns. Mysterious double LP on Into The Light.

Craig Armstrong & Scott Fraser
Rosa Morta

Rosa Morta, a new vinyl version of the 2016 album by Craig Armstrong & Scott Fraser previously only out as a CD. The duo deliberately constricted themselves to electronics rather than acoustic strings for the recording, with electric bass and piano adding punch and range. The tracks have a sense of immediacy and improvisation; each was worked on for a day with no fussing. A stripped-down approach to which listeners can relate.

Off World
2

Off World got off to a flying start last year with I, a record released as part of a trilogy of electronic works on Constellation echoing back to their Musique Fragile Series. Featuring avant-folk artist Sandro Perri, the group's record offered beguiling instrumental twists that sounded like vintage coming back to life; the roster appears to have changed here, Perri joined by the likes of labelmate Eric Chenaux as well as Matthew Cooper, Susumu Mukai and others.

Visionist
Value

Big Grime buddy Visionist is putting out a new record on Big Dada. Barely taking a breath after late 2015's Safe, Louis Carnell has produced another study in vulnerability, this time approaching themes of machismo and effeminacy rather than safety and anxiety. Oh, and between the beats you might even spot the vocals of Visionist himself.

Aphex Twin
Syro

Well we'll be blowed. The threats have actually finally come true. Aphex Twin's first proper new studio album for Warp since the divisive confused bulk of 2001's 'Drukqs' is due towards the end of September 2014. The artwork is quasi-cryptic and minimal as you can see. What the material will sound like is the stuff of many an "IDM" fanboy/girl's social networking dreams. What we do know is that this is the most exciting news in electronic music we've heard since the deluge of Analord material for his own Rephlex that seems like many, many moons ago. Yes, he could have written it on his laptop in the bog last month or yes, it could be archive stuff more than a decade old. Will there be a "Windowlicker" on there? Whatever, we can surmise all we like but this is literally amazing news for his countless fanatical devotees around the globe and is bound to hold some surprises.

Jay Glass Dubs
Jay Glass Dubs vs Guerilla Toss

Guerilla Toss’s material gets laid out bare for Jay Glass Dubs to work some jittery remix magic on… with sexy results. Lots of space, wonky reverb, and synthetic shimmer is brought to the fore by Jay, and I’m sure Toss will be pleased with the results. Jay Glass Dubs vs Guerilla Toss is a cassette release, and it's out on Bokeh Versions.
