Dark Sky
Othona

London duo Dark Sky return to Modeselektor’s Monkeytown imprint for their second full length album Othona. After releases on 50Weapons, Tectonic and Black Acre these two share similar traits to their label boss, incorporating as many aspects of electronica as possible, dropping dancefloor heavyweights as well as the introspective and melodious.

Bogus Order
Zen Brakes Vol. 2

If there’s a time to say “an eagerly anticipated follow up” this might be that time. 27 years after the first release on Ninja Tunes the second Zen Brakes by Bogus Order (Jonathan More and Matt Black, also known as Coldcut) is here through Ahead Of Our Time. CD comes with 10 different artworks, one for each track. Expect - Granular sythesis and heavily broken breakbeats.

Tomutonttu
Kevätjuhla

Tomutonttu (aka Finnish artist Jan Anderzén) presents a vinyl distillation of the sound aspect of his Kevätjuhla installation work. The tone is garishly colourful and bizarrely fragmented all at the same time, with poppy fragments swimming around in a sea of bright electronics, all directed by some invisible alien logic. The LP is released by Helm’s label Alter.

ADULT.
Detroit House Guests

ADULT. (they always spell it like that) are a husband and wife neo-comedy duo from Detroit who make kind of a lets say unconventional take on dance music with each calling out over some cheesy keys. This, their first for Mute is a collaborative effort with guests including Michael Gira (Swans), Robert Aiki Aubrey Lowe (Lichens) and the bloke from Nitzer Ebb.

Mass Prod
Earquake

Italo-American producer Mass Prod has been cutting his teeth for a while across numerous labels, including ReSolute, Kontra-Musik, Cuttin’ Headz and Objazz. After releasing a mini album on cassette in 2013 he’s now back for a follow up full length. As experimental as it is funky he’ll jump from trashy house beats, to 2-step, to John Carpenter without flinching.

Fallbeil
The Healer

Fallbeil are a Hamburg crew who rock a really sharp combination of electro and acid: the squelches are severe and the percussion is fat. The Healer features two new Fallbeil cuts as well as a remix by Innyster that really cranks up the industrial flavours. Hard-hitting 12” on Mannequin, as part of their ‘Death Of The Machines’ series.

James Murray
Killing Ghosts

James Murray makes music that sometimes sounds like the ghosts of techno: tracks that might once have moved bodies on a dancefloor have been diffused and reduced so thoroughly that they now inhabit a wholly different space. Killing Ghosts is a suite of those ambient remnants. Released by Home Normal in an edition of 500.

High Plains
Cinderland

Collaborative project between classically trained cellist Mark Bridges and Scott Morgan (probably better known as his solo moniker Loscil or as the drummer and saxophonist for Destroyer). Since working together on an endless generative music app in 2015 a future project was looming, in the form of High Plains, 9 tracks of low level neo-classical pieces blending cello, electronics and field recordings.

Death Qualia
Intention Versus

Death Qualia is Jonathan Baruc’s twisted-up rave project, in which he delves into themes of dark madness and inner lives. Intention Versus is an intense listen and no mistake, so make sure you don’t take it lightly. Intention Versus is a 12” EP released on the Portals Editions label in a tightly limited edition of 300 copies.

Sammlung: Elektronische Kassettenmusik, Dusseldorf 1982-1989

Sammlung: Elektronische Kassettenmusik, Dusseldorf 1982-1989 is an astonishing compilation of ultra-rare early electronic experiments, industrial clangers and heavy drone created in Cold War Dusseldorf. Cheap synthesizers, disaffected young people and crushing modernist architecture helped create an incredible range of powerful and abrasive post-punk electronics. On CD and vinyl LP from Bureau B.

  • Electronic / Electro / IDM / EBM

IVVVO
Light Moving

A muddy, expansive chunk of dancefloor techno from Portuguese IVVVO. Following a slew of releases on Opal Tapes he brings Light Moving to Fourth Wave, tying a rich palette of crackly sounds and dark ambient washes to a propulsive beat for a rushing club-facing sound. Out on vinyl LP from Fourth Wave.

Shobaleader One
Elektrac

Virtuoso Tom Jenkinson heads up his Shobaleader One full band project, which includes players Strobe Nazard, Arg Nution and Company Laser. For their second full length Elektrac they have taken on a load of Squarepusher’s tracks and worked out how to play them as a band. Company Laser’s drumming on Journey To Reedham alone is ludicrous, but it has to be.
  • Genre(s):
  • Electronic / Electro / IDM / EBM

Monolog & Subheim
Conviction

Subheim and Monolog get involved with each other for this collaboration on Denovali. Conviction blends together sweet electronic ambiences and firm drum machines, creating an interesting hybrid that is at times intentionally wrong-footing. It’s both soft and hard, tender and fierce: a genuine collaboration. Heavyweight vinyl edition from Denovali.
  • Genre(s):
  • Electronic / Electro / IDM / EBM

Dag Rosenqvist & Matthew Collings
Hello Darkness

The occasionally-recurring team-up of Matthew Collings and Dag Rosenqvist present the results of five years of work, chopping and processing audio from studio sessions until finally satisfied with the results. Hello Darkness is deep and dark and heavy, but also not lacking in a sense of humour: just look at the cover. Out on Denovali.

Public Memory
Veil Of Counsel

Public Memory make a shuffling kind of music out of slithering bass tones, slow-swaggering drum machines and Thom Yorkie vocals, all put through a dubbed-up and tripped-out production style. Veil Of Memory is a three track EP that sonically stands in between last year’s debut album and their forthcoming 2017 follow-up. 12” on Felte.

Nick Sutton
Angels Dreams Inches

Three excerpts from Nick Sutton’s various film soundtracks, produced in partnership with filmmaker Ian Pons Jewell. The films are called ‘Angels’, ‘¼”’ and ‘Dreamt In Flesh’, hence the tile Angels Dream Inches. And what’s more, two bold remixes from Gazelle Twin and Emika are also included. EP pressed to red and black marbled vinyl, released by Paper Folds.

Kreidler
European Song

We might see a lot of this in the coming year: albums riven with shock and rage at the election of Donald Trump. Kreidler apparently had a rather playful record all recorded and ready to go, but the darkness of European Song quickly took over after the election. Repetitive and nervy electronic rock, improvised in the studio and presented in defiance. LP / CD editions on Bureau B.
  • Genre(s):
  • Electronic / Electro / IDM / EBM

Botany
Dimming Awe, The Light is Raw

A new album of rich sampledelica from Botany, spinning all manner of musical and non-musical sources into a thick jazzy collage. Guests on Dimming Awe, The Light Is Raw include Milo and Matthewdavid, the latter lending a very rare vocal turn. Vinyl release on Western Vinyl, also coming with a download code for the entire bonus album Raw Light II.

The Golden Filter
STILL // ALONE

Isolated synth-pop with lashings of coldwave and goth-pop. STILL // ALONE is rigidly divided into two halves over two vinyl LPs, separating the more club-orientated output from the home-listening stuff. The Golden Filter (a tight-knit duo) are proud to use predominantly vintage analogue equipment in their music making, and this record consequently has an authentic 80’s feel. 2LP on Optimo.

Daniel Bennett
Roil

Roil is the latest four-piece release from Daniel Bennett. Described as ‘four pieces of brutally-minded electronic synthesis’ that give way to a blurred new path between materiality and abstraction. A mix of feedback noise created by using analogue equipment and experimental field-art. Available on CD.

John Foxx
The Virgin Years (1980 - 1985)

This 5CD box set covers the 4 albums John Foxx released between 1980 - 1985 - Metamatic, The Garden, The Golden Section & In Mysterious Ways - plus B-sides and out-takes from the sessions which have been added as bonus tracks after each original album, and on a fifth CD, Fusion/Fission. The Virgin Years includes a new analogue master of Metamatic , along with re-masters of the B-sides - 'This City', 'Film One' etc. The black box also houses five postcards with the artwork for the singles 'Underpass', 'No-One Driving', 'Europe After The Rain', 'Endlessly' and 'Stars On Fire'.

Various
Covert II

Covert II is an unusual compilation in that you don’t get to know which artists are appearing on it. That’s right, the five producers behind these acidic electro jams remain anonymous, meaning that you’ll just have to judge each track on its own merits, won’t you? 12” EP, released as a benefit for Macmillan Cancer Support.
  • Genre(s):
  • Electronic / Electro / IDM / EBM

Shed
The Final Experiment

Shed has been producing stern but smart techno music for many years, though it’s been half a decade since his previous full-length.The Final Experiment masterfully toes the line between four-to-the-floor club workout music and spacier atmospheres. CD and double LP release on Modeselektor’s Monkeytown label.

Cologne Tape
Welt

Cologne Tape is a collective centred around the awesome rhythm-talents of John Stanier (Battles), Alex Willner (The Field), Mario Katz and numerous others. Welt was recorded, naturally enough, in Cologne, with synths and drums and piano and vibraphone and much more. Deep studio explorations from a remarkable ensemble. Released by Magazine.
  • Genre(s):
  • Electronic / Electro / IDM / EBM

Eaves
Verloren

Eaves proudly bears his personal history as an architecture academic and internet theorist on these productions, making his debut album Verloren an intriguing listen. Electronics, strings, beats and bits of digital scree all add up to a thick fug of future-sound. Vinyl release on the PTP label (formerly Purple Tape Pedigree).

Byul.org
Selected Tracks For Nacht Damonen

This compilations acts as a sort of peak under the sheets of the underground Korean music scene. A collection of works from a collective from Seoul called Byul.org. Compiled by the collective’s director TaeSang Cho and Markus Acher of The Notwist the music itself ranges from minimal and abstract sound art to synth pop and electro. A fantastic look at the DIY culture still at large under everyone’s feet.

  • Electronic / Electro / IDM / EBM

Deathprod
Treetop Drive

The early works of Norwegian experimentalist Deathprod (aka Supersilent member Helge Sten) here receive some attention from Smalltown Supersound’s reissues division. Treetop Drive is an early 90’s work composed using Sten’s ‘Audio Virus’ array, spinning twisted samples and unruly electronics into a satisfyingly fried-sounding whole. LP reissue with remastered audio.

FAY
Deal

FAY combines a Holly Herndonesque approach to chopping and screwing her own voice with a drone-dub aesthetic and an avant approach to electronic music. She makes haunted mini-choirs out of her voice, re-sampled and pitch-shifted, and implants these into tracks of broken-up electronics. Deal is a strange and eerie listen indeed. Released by the Time No Place label.

Jacques Greene
Feel Infinite

Even with incredibly well received releases on UNO, 3024, and Night Slugs, Jacques Greene is very much a mainstay at LuckyMe and after many EPs with the label he is rightfully releasing his debut full length with the scottish label. After working with acts such as Shlohmo, Tinashe, and How To Dress Well this is a hotly tipped release with several tracks already lorded after.

Dominowe
SiyaThakatha

Gqom is the raw n’ rough house sensation that’s sweeping the nation (of South Africa), and Dominowe is a sharp Durban producer whose stuff is even more impressive when you bear in mind that the guy is nineteen. SiyaThakatha shows off Dominowe’s different gqom styles in a fierce and remarkable flurry of beat power. 12” EP on Gqom Oh!

Donato Epiro
Rubisco

Donato Epiro is a composer / producer with an intuitive feel for weird rhythms and patterns. Rubisco, his second album, nods to both the dark and heavy bass music popular today and the strange and super library music of his native Italy, leaving the listener with a disorienting whirlscape of sound. But lovelier than you might think. Edition of 300 LPs on Loopy.
  • Genre(s):
  • Electronic / Electro / IDM / EBM

Blanck Mass
World Eater

Previously best known as being one-half of the overbearing electronics duo Fuck Buttons Benjamin John Power has carved his own name with his Blanck Mass moniker. World Eater is his third full length (2nd on Sacred Bones) under the name, and he shifts wildly between releases, but always with steroid pumped power behind it, with the leading track Please sounding like Lapalux getting into power electronics.
  • Genre(s):
  • Electronic / Electro / IDM / EBM

Prins Thomas
The Orb Remixes

There comes a time in some lucky producers’ lives when they receive they honour of having their own work remixed by a bona fide legend. That time has come for Prins Thomas, who here gets a pair of tracks from his Principe Del Norte album reworked by The Orb themselves! These spacey wonders are a treat for listeners as well as for Prins: available from Smalltown Supersound.
  • Genre(s):
  • Electronic / Electro / IDM / EBM

Herva
Hyper Flux

The glitch-haven named Hyper Flux doesn't promise to be so slick in its opening bars, but only when this Italian, named Herve Atsi Courti, gets in to his stride, the true quality of Hyper Flux is revealed. Herve Atsi Courti, who basks in the countryside surrounding Florence, steps out of the norm with this bizarre fusion of techno and wonky house.
  • Genre(s):
  • Electronic / Electro / IDM / EBM

Moiré
No Future

With his releases on R&S, Ninja Tune, and Werk Discs London based producer Moiré has always pushed left of centre in techno production, swapping straight fours for screwed and off kilter beats that mysteriously achieve the same rhythm. On his latest full length through Ghostly International he pushes further into IDM beat work territories, working with MC DRS and “grime poet” James Massiah.
  • Genre(s):
  • Electronic / Electro / IDM / EBM

Sherwood & Pinch
Man Vs. Sofa

Heavyweight producer Sherwood meets Pinch and myriad collaborators to produce a stretch of mutant dub and bass music, switching and blending ethereal texture and muscular abstract noise techno workouts, with supremely effective results. One for head nodding on sofa journeys and dark, throbbing dancefloors alike.

Martial Canterel
Navigations Volume II

Martial Canterel is the vintage-style coldwave project of Sean McBride. He’s been producing shimmery moody synth music since 2002, and this second volume of his Navigations series compiles rare sounds from this first two years of the project. This is a mixture of sketches and unfinished tracks that offer both insight to the growth of the music and some very fine sounds in their own right. LP with insert on Medical Records.

He’s been producing shimmery moody synth music since 2002, and this third volume of his Navigations series compiles rare sounds from this first two years of the project. This is a mixture of sketches and unfinished tracks that offer a valuable perspective on the growth of the music, as well as sounds that are very fine in their own right.

Metalized Man
Losing Your Virginity: Metalized Boy’s First Adventures in Manhood

Metalized Man make music that’s perfect for those types who like electronic music but are a bit fuzzy on the idea of dancing: this stuff right here is too abstracted, noisy and weird for you to get a groove on, but boy are those textures delicious. Losing Your Virginity: Metalized Boy’s First Adventures In Manhood is the first full-length release of this beguiling project.

Monopol
Weltweit

If, like this blurb-writer, you watched Channel 4’s excellent Deutschland ‘83 then your thirst for German synth-pop and new-wave will be at an all-time high. Enter Monopol and their reissued Weltweit. The group’s only album came out in 1982, there is of course plenty of Kraftwerk and YMO coursing through the record. Songs like ‘Anarchie’ are either gleefully deranged or knowingly deranged and definitely dance-ably deranged. Remastered for this brave new world.

Succhiamo
Succhiamo

Succhiamo does the almost-unthinkable here on this eponymous two-tracker, by cheerfully remembering the much-lamented music of electroclash. That means two big and brash funtime bangers, with lyrics about sex and supermarkets and a tongue-in-cheek attitude. A very welcome release to see in a ‘serious dance music’ landscape.

A7PHA
A7PHA

Legendary experimental hip-hop label Anticon release the self-titled debut album from A7PHA on vinyl LP and CD. The duo comprise veterans Mestizo, who provides the dense, surreal rapping, and Doseone, who frames the lyrics with head-nodding, experimental productions that manage to blend the funky and industrial.

Air Cushion Finish
Flink

Flink is the warped, mysterious and 8th offering of Berlin-incepted oddity - Air Cushion Finish. Fronted by the manipulated vocals of experimentalist Lippstueck, who has helped form the German experimentalist scene since the 1990's, this offering continues the pioneer's steady rise and is as intriguing as it is hypnotic.

Sandoz
#9294 (Collected Works 1992 - 1994)

As well as working within Cabaret Voltaire, and his own solo work, Richard H. Kirk  had another many other guises. One of which was Sandoz, with the mission statement of melding African rhythms and european dance music. This collection brings 3 remastered albums and a CD of unreleased material between 1992 and 1994.
  • Genre(s):
  • Electronic / Electro / IDM / EBM

Immersion
Analogue Creatures

This five track vinyl 10” from Immersion perfectly connects the duo’s backgrounds. First formed by Wire’s Colin Newman and Minimal Compact’s Malka Spigel in the 90s, Immersion make organic techno built from precise loops and minimal textures. As the name Analogue Creatures suggests, this EP is about analogue gear and making a racket with it.

L/F/D/M
Music Without Discipline

Music Without Discipline. What a world we live in… The latest release from Alessio Natalizia (Not Waving) & Sam Willis’ Ecstatic label comes courtesy of techno miscreant L/F/D/M. There are plenty of mutant acid stormers on Music Without Discipline - we're looking at you, ‘Birds 1’ - but this record also sees the artist dabbling in Aphex Twin-esque ambiences, old-timey industrialism and harsh noise.

pHarmerz
20 Acid Clonk Greats

Can you imagine what would happen if Farmer Glitch (ex Hacker Farm) met Ekoplekz and started collaborating? Well it really happened and this double 3"CD is the result. It's full of wonky acidy tones all bent and stretched into all manner of shapes and sizes. One for fans of Rephlex and early Warp records
  • Genre(s):
  • Electronic / Electro / IDM / EBM

PVT
New Spirit

Former Warp Records artists PVT, aka Pivot, return with another album of electronic songcraft. New Spirit’s songs move like rock / pop songs, but are built from shapeshifting synths, pitch-shifted vocals and stern drum machines. The resulting glossy art-pop then gets on with critiquing the ills of modern Australian society. LP / CD release on Felte.

Gypsy Mamba
Magnetic Syndromes

Californian producer Gypsy Mamba makes synth music from within the prism designed by the LA Brainfeeder crew: stuttering beats and a flare-textured psychedelic fill this record. But Magnetic Syndromes isn’t quite beat music. It finds it’s own, slightly more abstract pathway to electronic enlightenment. LP release on Alpha Pup.

Multicast Dynamics
Continental Ruins

Samuel van Dijk’s hazy electronic project Multicast Dynamics presents what he calls a ‘sound documentary’ on sunken infrastructure. Continental Ruins is thus suitably watery and sombre in tone, using heavily-processed synths and field recordings to create deep-textured sound slabs that’ll pull the listener under. Out on Denovali.

Xao Seffcheque
Ja, Nein, Vielleicht Kommt Sehr Gut (A Selection of Electronic Beats 1980–82)

As an Austrian national dwelling in Düsseldorf circa 1980, Xao Seffcheque was well placed to get real electronic with it. Ja, Nein, Vielleicht Kommt Sehr Gut (A Selection Of Electronic Beats 1980-1982) is a compilation of the man’s sharp and deconstructive solo work, some of it previously unreleased, taking a satirical sideswipe at some musical contemporaries. On Bureau B.

Vermont
II

Sophomore efforts are always difficult, but Vermont simply continues where they left off. On II, German synthesizer-whisperers Marcus Wogull and Danilo Plessow (from Motor City Drum Ensemble) once again show a world brimming with vintage analog electronics, where they have created exciting upbeat soundscapes approaching the krautrocky. A fine example of why we love it when Kompakt makes exceptions on its strict minimal-techno-producers-only policy.

Zombi
Shape Shift

A four year hiatus followed Zombi’s last album, Escape Velocity, which their fans hold dear to their hearts. Their new album, Shape Shift is a heavier and darker piece of work than it’s predecessor that has the Pittsburgh space rock duo returning to their ‘live’ sounding roots. Recommended if you like the soundtracks of John Carpenter or bands like Goblin, Explosions in the Sky and Mogwai.

Synkro
Memories (2008-2011)

Synkro's 2015 debut 'Changes' was an excellent slab of evocative electronica that no Burial loving household should be without. While Joe McBride does all he can to live up to this claim with a new record it's time to have a retrospective of his earlier work. These tracks show his formative years spent weaving warm sonics and emotional melodies into a satisfactory whole. 
  • Genre(s):
  • Electronic / Electro / IDM / EBM

Emptyset
Medium

Subtext (Roly Porter, Vex’d) re-press Emptyset’s 2012 mini-LP (which means it’s an EP, then) Medium. The bass-bothering duo recorded these tracks on location in a ruined Gothic mansion near Gloucester, and the reverberant surroundings add extra depth to these moody cross-breeds of dubstep and electro-acoustic composition.

ELLLL
Romance

ELLLL is an enigmatic producer, seemingly hailing from Ireland, who sort of makes techno but also sort of makes noise and drone music. Pleasingly, she is very good at whirling these worlds together into intoxicatingly thick blends that will draw you deep into the sound. Romance, her debut, is a four track EP released by Art for Blind Records.

Jordan Ireland with Purple Orchestra
Jordan Ireland with Purple Orchestra

Once of The Middle East, Jordan Ireland comes through with his second project since the group’s disintegration in 2011, and the first with his Purple Orchestra. They’re not actually an orchestra though - it’s used as more of a catch-all term for a band that throws together lilting pianos, harps, dulcimers, electronics and voice choirs in a similar manner to, say, Sigur Ros or Sung Tongs era Animal Collective.

Nathan Fake
Providence

Nathan Fake’s new album, his fourth, is the first time he has ever worked with vocalists; and what a pair of vocalists they are. Raphaelle from Braids contributes some swooning dramatism to ‘RVK’, while Prurient / Dominick Fernow contributes some sinister muttering to ‘DEGREELESSNESS’. These big-hitter tracks are supported by a brace of lively electronic instrumentals in classic Fake style. Providence is out on Ninja Tune.

Magnetband (Experimenteller Elektronik-Underground DDR, 1984-1989)

Bureau B continue an incredible run of reissuing unheard electronic rarities from behind the Iron Curtain, with Magnetband (Experimenteller Elektronik-Underground DDR, 1984-1989) on CD and vinyl LP. This compilation captures a vibrant East German scene where DIY electronics combine with post-punk aggression and industrial drones.

Conrad Schnitzler
Filmmusik 2

German electronic legend (and member of both Tangerine Dream and Kluster) Conrad Schnitzler produced his Filmmusik tracks in 1975, without bothering to wait for any particular films to come along for the music to fit to. Consequently this music was mostly lost, until Bureau B’s excellent archive-digging skills were deployed. Now, they present Filmmusik 2.

Matt Robson
You Cannot Save Your Friends

Leeds' local Matt Robson has made a name for himself blazing through the scene in acts such as Alisa Craig and the Blanch Hudson. On the ominously titled 'You Cannot Save Your Friends', though, he gives himself a round of applause under his real name, producing a record of zany instrumental music that recalls the glitchy electronica he made under the randomNumber alias. An oddly suppressed coming together of beats and off-kilter melodies, with an odd little roster of contributions too -- including Mick Dale from Embrace -- Robson continues pretty much doing whatever he wants.

Blackdown
Rollage Vol.2: Keysound Sessions Anthem

This new Blackdown material is the result of a tightly constrained process: all four tracks have been built up around a piece of audio grabbed by a phone in the middle of a Keysound club night. From that inauspicious sound grain, a bunch of strong bangers has sprung, all rolling forth at 130bpm. Rollage Vol. 2: Keysound Sessions Anthem is a 12” out on Keysound.

Sampha
Process

He's had his finger in an impressive selection of pies for the last 5 or 6 years, and that's why it may come as a surprise that South London-born producer/singer/songwriter Sampha is only just releasing his first full length LP. After an outstanding recent feature on Solange's "A Seat At The Table", Process is his own creation, and it's pretty exciting. "Blood On Me" is the teaser single, a potent electronic blend of soul, pop and hip-hop with shuffling beats, gorgeous harmonies and that distinctive, powerful-yet-delicate voice that Sampha has become so sought-after for. Released as Vinyl LP and CD on the Young Turks label.

Delia Derbyshire and Elsa Stansfield
Circle Of Light – Original Electronic Soundtrack

An absolutely essential purchase for any fans of BBC Radiophonic Orchestra/early day synth, this very rare soundtrack created in 1972 by legendary composer Delia Derbyshire (along with artist Elsa Stansfield) finally gets a re-issue on the ever inquisitive Trunk records. They came up with a mix of sound design, tape manipulation and natural environmental sounds for Anthony Roland's 1972 film about the slides of radical stills photographer Pamela Bone.

Emptyset
Borders

More dark and heavy beat-work from Bristol / Berlin’s Emptyset. On Borders, the duo have incorporated some acoustic instruments into their tangled web of brutalist electronics, pushing their sound into some new areas, though don’t worry: this is still music to wreck buildings to. Borders is Emptyset’s first release for the Thrill Jockey label.
  • Genre(s):

Naaahhh
Themes

Naaahhh is a sound project that seems to have pushed through to the other side of underground rave culture, simulating the vibes of the next day’s grotty hangovers with queasy electronic tones and textures. And yet Themes still sounds good enough that you’d actually want to listen to it! Vivid dark atmospheric material, released by Blackest Ever Black.

Hejira
The Lima Limo Ceremony

Hejira developed the materials for their new EP The Lima Limo Ceremony on a trip to Addis Ababa, using field recordings and samples from cassettes as well as musical ideas inspired by the Ethiopian metropolis. The results are possibly Hejira’s most interesting songs yet. 7” EP, released by the band’s own Lima Limo Records.

D∆WN
Infrared (Deluxe)

This is the deluxe edition of the 'Infrared' EP by this soul star favoured by some of the younger people in the office. Here she collaborates with some like-minded folk (Kingdom, Prince Will) on some smooth auto-tune friendly R&B and to make things even more exciting this time they've added a bunch of remixes too. 

Quarta 330
Pixelated EP

The rather quite consistent and generally ever-relevant Hyperdub imprint usher out an EP from Japan’s Quarta 330, ten years on from his first encounter with the label through remixing Kode9. His Pixelated EP twists and bends chiptune through melodic jazz-fusion, dubstep blends and more atmospheric cuts. There’ll likely be more to follow from this fella once this vinyl 12” is out.

Babe, Terror
Ancient M’ocean

A new suite of odd-pop music from São Paulo’s Babe, Terror. Ancient M’Ocean is a pleasing soup of bright and gooey sounds, as playful as it is experimental. And that’s not all! This CD comes with a 20 page comic book, designed by Babe, Terror and illustrated by Michael Crook. This rare audio-visual experience is available from Phantasy Sound.

Mondkopf
They Fall, But You Don’t

Thickly-textured analogue synthesiser jams from Mondkopf, recorded in a Parisian bedroom in 2016. They Fall, But You Don’t contains the six-part suite ‘Vivere’, which builds and writhes and simmers with electronic energy and a delicate touch of vocals. CD / LP release on the In Paradisum label.

S. Brugnolini / G. Carnini
UST 7010 - Beat Drammatico Underground Pop Elettronico

The deeper you dig, the more apparent it becomes that almost everything in music was anticipated by obscure Italians cranking out mad library music in a studio somewhere. UST 7010 - Beat Drammatico Underground Pop Elettronico is a set of amazing, weird, groovy and exploratory electronic tracks by S. Brugnolini and G. Carnini. Reissued by Schema as part of their SCEB Series.

Tycho
Epoch

Epoch is the final chapter in Tycho’s trilogy of ridiculously accessible indietronica albums. Moving on from Dive, through Awake, the Californian has reached new heights in upbeat, optimistic head-bobbing songs that float on spacey synthesizers and tightly and perfectly delayed guitars. Epoch, however, features real drums played by a real drummer, lending Tycho’s songs an extra touch of tangibility.

Nosaj Thing
Fated

Available on 12” Vinyl or CD on Innovative Leisure. Nosaj Thing’s debut album Drift was heralded as a landmark record, and quite rightly so, pushing texture and melody into the foreground. After leaving 4 years before his follow up Home Jason Chung seems more eager to refine his sound even further with Fated. A must for fans of Lapalux and Flying Lotus.

Group Zero
Structures and Light

Structures and Light is the intricate and esoteric works of synth-harnessing artist Group Zero, aka Cathal Cully. Its abrasiveness is not for the faint hearted - this is an artist not interest in making an appeal to the mainstream. The album "brought the naivety and spontaneity back to making music", according to Cully, whose playfulness is truly a diamond in the rough.

Marconi Union
Tokyo+

Marconi Union released this suite of ambient shimmer-groove in 2009, in fairly limited quantities. This reissue of Tokyo makes the excellent music available again, and also adds a live reimagining of the entire album, wherein original loops and parts of Tokyo were organised into new compositions. Tokyo + is a double CD release on Just Music.

A Year In The Country
No More Unto The Dance

Deep memory music from A Year In The Country here on their new electronics-focused album No More Unto The Dance. Take your pick between the Dawn Edition, which comes in a recycled sleeve with some inserts and badges, or the Night Edition, which is a box-set with a booklet, a sticker set, a unique print, and a makeup mirror. And some more badges. Both packages contain the album on CDr.

Francis Bebey
Psychedelic Sanza 1982-1984

Crate diggers and rare musical magpies Born Bad give us another reason to love them with Francis Bebey's 'Psychedelic Stanza', a biographical compilation that combs through the best work of Cameroonian polymath Francis Bebey, who created a sound that could be groovy and raw at the same time, as finely textured as it was utterly sparse. This time they look at the '80s period of his recording career, which retains the same joyous spirit -- just listen to him sing.

Space People
Wet

Slick and speedy work here from New York producer Space People, who bounces through six tracks in sixteen minutes. That bouncy pace means that not a moment is wasted: Wet is busy with details, be they samples (look out for the ghost of Missy Elliot) or sudden beat-shifts. 12” release on Styles Upon Styles.

Michael Vallera
Vivid Flu

After a couple of releases on Opal tapes under his other moniker COiN Michael Vallera released his debut under his own name, a dark and gradual industrial soundscape. On his follow up, Vivid Flu on Denovali Vallera continues down a dark, almost film noir distorted machinery path with drowned plucked electric guitar.

Soft Error
Mechanism

Soft Error are an electronic duo that have based their musical content using a complementary mix of synthesisers, drum machines and keyboards. Mechanism is the grainy and symphonic debut album from the duo, and it was recorded at the renowned Greenhouse Studio in Iceland. Available on Vinyl LP and CD.

Brian Eno
Reflection

Ambient music pioneer and all-round legend Brian Eno is back on Warp records with Reflection. In Eno’s own words this double vinyl LP and CD returns to his his earliest ideas about composing so-called ambient music and is as blissful, complex, demanding and beguiling as any of his music from that period.     

Gareth JS Thomas
Wandsworth Sports

Aphelion Editions is shaping up to be an interesting label... Here they follow up their inaugural release by Tlön with a limited edition CDr/cassette tape by Gareth JS Thomas (USA NAILS, SILENT FRONT, MAYORS OF MIYAZAKI). Over the course of the album our lug holes are treated to dreamy ambient textures and eerie dronescapes, some sound collage/sampling/cut-up action and a wee dose of cranky techno to boot. All super atmospheric stuff ,that occasionally gets pretty weird - with an absurd and wicked sense of humour.

Model Man
Pieces for Prepared Piano and Percussion

Model Man are the latest musicians to discover the endless ingenious possibilities offered by applying bits and pieces to the strings of a piano. Pieces for Prepared Piano and Percussion takes the Cageian instrument and pushes it into tweaky groove territory that sounds like certain strains of electronica (though the sounds seem to mostly be acoustic). 12” EP release on Telharmonium Records.

Tycho
Awake Remixes

Tycho’s Awake was a perfect distillation of the group’s melodic electro-rock, mixing krautrock textures and dense guitars. On this vinyl LP remix album all those lush instrumentals are rebuilt by an exciting range of producers. Com Truise beefs up Awake for the dancefloor, Bibio goes avant-lounge and all the collaborators add unique touches to wonderful tunes.

Joshua Sabin
Terminus Drift

Here’s an album made entirely out of field recordings of metropolitan transit systems and electromagnetic interference, with material sourced from Scotland, Germany and Japan.

Steve Moore
The Mind's Eye - Original Motion Picture Soundtrack

Steve Moore has history in Zombi, meaning that he’s demonstrated his talent for soundtracking spooooooky horror movies in the past. Here he applies his synth skills to The Mind’s Eye, weaving uneasy ambient passages and bombastic themes like it ain’t no thing. Plenty of tense dramatic music here that will certainly appeal to horror soundtrack aficionados. On Relapse.

Elemnt
Water

These four tracks from Elemnt play around with techno and ambient forms, sometimes sounding like distant drifting and other times settling into precision-tooled squelch-techno. The latter variety of Water is sleek and business-like and frankly irresistible. 12” release on Hidden Hawaii, pressed in a limited edition of 300.
