Sebastian Camens
Tan Object

Constructed around a menacing synth drone that threads through the entire album, musician and producer Sebastian Camens hit several emotional peaks and troughs with his Tan Object record. The repetitive yet malleable structures never stay in the same place for long, and the mood is impossible to pin down.

Ekman
Sturm Und Drang / First Mover

Loves a bit of the old electro, does our Ekman. This is exactly what the Dutch producer gives us with A-side ‘Sturm Und Drang’ here. However, the crunching heft of industrial techno is something that’s less common on an Ekman drop, making the Fret-style ‘First mover’ a pleasant surprise for your inner beat-freak. ‘Sturm Und Drang’/‘First Mover’ is out via Shipwrec (DMX Krew, The Exaltics).

Joane Skyler
Serious Time

Serious Time is Joane Skyler’s fourth release and the artist’s most confident yet. His low-key electronic music focuses on sound design and unusual compositions, and creates a sense of weightless abstraction tied down by drum machines and synth gurgles. This vinyl LP on Ceramics is one of the most distinctive visions we’re heard in awhile and is proper forward-thinking electronic music.

Daphni
FABRICLIVE 93: Daphni

What's Dan Snaith up to these days? Still raking in the sweet $$ from 'Can't do without you'? Well he's got enough to revive the party-hard Daphni moniker for a Fabriclive mix solely consisting of exclusive new Daphni material that'll have Keiran Hebden blushing with midtempo jealousy. Considering there hasn't been any new Daphni stuff since 2012, this is a treat for Snaithers everywhere.

Zarelli
Soft Rains

This would appear to be a sonic adaptation of a Raymond Bradbury short story, taking as as base layer the 1975 reading of the story by… Leonard Nimoy! Around Nimoy’s dulcet tones, Zarelli’s Carwyn Ellis builds up a primarily electronic structure, echoing the happenings and mood of Bradbury’s tale. Out on Bronzerat.

Run Dust
Leisure Village

Luke Calzonetti has gone through many guises and styles before arriving at his latest. From skitz-grind outfit Child Abuse to jazz to painting. Leisure Village is his third album on In Paradisium and shows all he’s taken in and turned into sound design prowess. 8 tracks of glorious soft ambient electronica with an Aphex Twin like lean toward the eerie and detatched.

The classic 1989 Psychic TV track Alien Be-In, presented in full remastered glory and accompanied by two remixes.

Best Available Technology
Exposure Therapy

With 90s nostalgia sweeping through club music at the moment, it was only a matter of time before someone started pining for boom-bap. Best Available Technology takes the same hauntological tack of acts like Burial and The Caretaker and refocuses it on golden-age NYC hip-hop. The result is a record of gloopy beat experiments that lands somewhere between The Bug, Sporting Life and RZA. Good, then.

Derivatives
Forwards, Futures and Options

Exciting debut release from Derivatives, a Vancouver producer who seems to have a keen interest in both minimal club tracks and complex financial instruments. The tight, clipped structures of Forwards, Futures and Options already express a clear personal identity, which has been honed through plenty of popular live sets. 12” released by Transfusions and Medical Records.

F.S.K.
Ein Haufen Scheiss und ein zertrümmertes Klavier

F.S.K. were formed in 1980 out of the German new wave scene, hugely influenced by the independent British music scene they experimented with punk rock, post punk, country and folk music and in the 90s dabbled in techno. This live recording is mixed by Marcel Dettmann and acts as a tribute to Luigi Russolo’s deconstruction approach. Limited pressings, screen print cover changes every 100 pressed.

Groom In Vineyards
Groom In Vineyards

Hissed out late night ambience from this Athens, Greece artist who promises to take you into a journey into the dark side of the city with this cassette release of churning soundscapes which have nods towards GAS or Celer but are altogether nastier.

Dialect
Loose Blooms

As the third full-length from Andrew PM Hunt, under the moniker of Dialect, Loose Blooms is a idiosyncratic twist of weirdness. Constantly anxious, riddled with paranoia around environmental disaster and human violence - this reaches depths that your run-of-the-mill pop could never reach, this is Hunt's life-affirming work.

Fieldhead
We’ve All Been Swimming

Having lived in the icy cold wastelands of Canada and the possibly even colder Newcastle Upon Tyne it comes as no surprise that Paul Elam (AKA Fieldhead) knows how to create chilling cinematic atmospheres. On his third full length album the now London based artist wraps his icy electronica in the sort of warm synth patterns that will be familiar to fans of the early day synth pioneers and ‘70s kosmische rhythm makers. Its patterns and shifts evoke recent work by the likes of Clark, Pye Corner Audio those on the Ghost Box label.

Moon’s Milk In Final Phase has been unfindable for some years, but now we’ve got a reissue of this deep-space abstract eulogy. On Soleilmoon.

The sounds and grooves within follow a natural trajectory through house and techno but are also informed by krautrock and even psychedelia. Hypnotic stuff, sometimes indebted to John Carpenter or Fabio Frizzi. On Hoga Nord.

Philippe Hallais has been producing as Low Jack for some time, but here he steps out under his own name for the first time, presenting some rather different experiments. An American Hero finds Hallais taking on the tropes of, er, ESPN sports documentaries, presenting a suite of ambientish tracks that trace out the ghost of one of these generic narratives. An American Hero is released by Modern Love.

Somewhere between Cloud Boat, Moderat, and Darkside you find Weval. Harm Coolen and Merijn Scholte Albers lock themselves away in an attic room in the Netherlands and create this warming, soul filled electronica with pop sensibilities and catchiness. Switching between loving ballads you’ll sing along to shuffling analog grooves.

Square One

Norwegian producers Bjorn Torske and Prins Thomas both experiment with disco and house their crossovers with kraut and world music.

Found on the other side is Jeremy Hyman's song - a trancing melody, seeming to almost hypnotise you with the rhythm. Heavy bass mixed with loud claps can be found booming throughout this encapsulating song. The two of these richly historical, self-made electrifying artists join forces with pride on 396.002, and will leave you begging for more.

Midnight

First post-birth (of his baby, not of Dan himself) album from Dan Lissvik, who used to play in Studio. Midnight is so titled because that's when Lissvik could creep away from his fatherhood duties to tinker with sounds. And these 8 cuts do have a late-night swing to them, a lush dubbed groove. Out on Smalltown Supersound.

Andre Bratten
Gode

André Bratten’s new record Gode is a mash of electroacoustics and contemporary composition (Giacinto Scelsi and Biosphere get shout outs in the list of influences) that has clearly been intensely laboured over. The album is reportedly Bratten’s most personal work to date. On Smalltown Supersound.

The music of Norwegian electronic composer Arne Nordheim is a remarkable trip through a flurry of textures, tones and musique concréte sound objects that sounds far too pristinely realised to have been composed between 1968 and 1970, but hey, thems the facts. Electric is an electronic masterwork, pleasingly reissued in a double LP edition by Rune Grammofon.

Pantha du Prince
The Triad: Ambient Versions

Pantha du Prince’s wonderful album The Triad now returns… in ambient form! Rather than farming out the stems to other producers, Pantha has crafted these versions himself, with the help of his engineer Kassian, turning each track inside out for a deep experience free from the need to be danceable. Double LP on Rough Trade.

Metro Riders
Europe By Night

Europe By Night is the perfect title for this record by Metro Riders, which taps straight into the lineage of 70’s / 80’s mitteleuropa electronica. Just like Kraftwerk‘s Trans Europe Express, this album conjures up the atmospheres of a moody journey through dark country with layers of lovely old synths. LP release on Possible Motive.

Lyeform
Things Betwixt EP

Lyeform rolls out from the middle of the UK continuum with a fresh and adventurous style that combines sweet segments of sound design from influences as broad as jungle, Vangelis-esque soundtrack work, and modern grime. Consequently, the Things Betwixt EP bumps and fizzes with real creative power. Tasty 12” on Keysound Recordings.

1115
Post-Europe

1115 are a bit of an enigma. Vocalist Fehler Kuti teaming up with the mysterious “Grey” (Julian Maison/G.E.F.) for their Post-Europe “Opera”. Dark, psychedelic, distubing yet playful, their debut full length is an artistically free no-man’s land -- hints of Nicolas Jaar, Arca, Dean Blunt, and Juan Atkins combine with ghost like vocals. Vinyl and CD on Alien Transistor.
