Orgasmo Sonore
Themes International

Orgasmo Sonore are trying to sneak this one in under the radar, impersonating an obscure reissue from the 70’s. But in fact, Themes International is all brand new material, performed in the style of old library music and giallo soundtracks. Orgasmo really know how to wear these styles! Packed in a vintage-styled sleeve, on Cineploit.

Macula Dog
Why Do You Look Like Your Dog?

Premium weirdo sonics from New York’s Macula Dog. Every inch of their songs seems to contain some unexpected digital curio, and, when taken as a whole, Why Do You Look Like Your Dog? comes across like a demented synth-pop band playing in a busy amusement arcade, with crazy-mirror filters occasionally distorting the sound. Unusual stuff! On Wharf Cat Records.

Shackleton with Ernesto Tomasini
Devotional Songs

Shackleton has never really put a foot wrong during his production career, but these collaborations with vocalist Ernesto Tomasini are especially impressive. Devotional Songs wanders through some very strange territories, with gamelan, organ, bells and shuddering bass all used alongside Tomasini’s wide-ranging voice. 4 tracks, on Honest Jon’s.

COCAINEJESUS
We're Worried About You

COCAINEJESUS sounds like a thrashy punk project, but is in fact a young electronic producer. Although maybe there is some punk in the way he energetically throws together big shining blocks of squarewave synth and cloud rap rhythms: We’re Worried About You is so bold and sugar-sweet you begin to wonder if we might have another Rustie on our hands. Debut album on Dream Catalogue.

Peder Mannerfelt
Live At Berlin Atonal 2015

The Berlin Atonal festival (housed in an former power-plant, the perfect location for heavy, industrially-tinged sounds) have started to release selected performances from last year’s event. Here we have extracts from the set of analogue-synth explorer Peder Mannerfelt, issuing a discourse on future sound via his EMS synth. 500 vinyl copies only!

Best Available Technology
Twisted Ladder

Any day of the week give me some melancholic repeato techno and I'll be happy for awhile. The lead track here is a delicious slab of just that that has gorgeous melancholy synth and two step beats cut into an awkward repeating sample. marvellous. This has in fact four tracks and is a hand stamped edition of 200 so be quick if you want one.

Solar Bears
Separate From The Arc - The Andrew Weatherall Remixes

Material from Solar Bears recent album Advancement gets a good going-over from Andrew Weatherall, the hardy perennial producer for spacey-electronica in the indie world. Of course, Solar Bears were electronic to begin with, so Weatherall adds percussion and dark textures to Separate From The Arc until it reaches new heights. 12” on Sunday Best.
  • Genre(s):
  • Electronic / Electro / IDM / EBM

Lakker
Tundra

Dark, brooding atmospheres reminiscent of your time as a night-shift factory worker, always throbbing onward: expect those sounds from Lakker’s debut full length. Tundra will give you the chills with its threatening basses and obtuse beats that’ll fill your room, ears and head as soon as the needle touches the vinyl.
  • Label(s):
  • 4AD

Kaumwald
Rapa Nui Clan

Kaumwald are too rhythmic to be a full-on electroacoustic / noise group, but too gorgeously messy to be straight techno producers. This isn’t some cheap ‘noise techno’ either, but a thick morass of textures: harsh bass blasts, fiddly clicks, heavily-processed vocals and plenty else besides. Something you can really sink your claws into. Latest LP Rapa Nui Clan is out on Opal Tapes.
  • Genre(s):
  • Electronic / Electro / IDM / EBM

Endgame
Flesh EP

Endgame has fingers in a number of London underground club culture pies, so he’s perfectly placed to drop unusual killer tracks like these. The Flesh EP mixes grime and drill styles with a bit of South American influence, resulting in heavyweight rollers with a wonderfully uneasy atmosphere. Guest MCing on one track from Organ Tapes. 12” on Hyperdub.

Building Instrument
Kem Som Kan A Leve

Building Instrument are a group that are satisfyingly hard to pin down: they throw together combinations of (say) zither, kazoo, percussion and electronics, and it’ll coalesce into some mystical song-atmosphere. Nicely done. Some of material on second album Kem Som Kan A Leve was written with Kurt Schwitters in mind, and was debuted at the opening of an exhibition of his work. Out on Hubro.

Space Dimension Controller
Orange Melamine

This is the 2008 debut album of Space Dimension Controller, put together when the Belfast producer was only 18! Many of the sounds on Orange Melamine sound older than that, by virtue of a curtain of tape hiss draped over many of the vintage synth sound-sources. Reissued on 1 CD or 2 LPs by Ninja Tune.

Dosh & Ghostband
Def Kith II: The Price Is Ill

Dosh & Ghostband (look at the pair of them there on the cover) reportedly put together the 4 tracks on Def Kith II: The Price Is Ill in a trifling 4 days: listen carefully and you’ll here the heat of spontaneous creation. It feels like various elements are being carefully examined and then swiftly thrown into the mix, all to serve the purpose of dancing, baby! Propulsive good times on Anticon.

Jameszoo
Fool

Straight out of Holland comes Jameszoo, an eclectic DJ and producer who has turned to incorporating live instrumentation into his work on new album Fool. In doing so he contributes to the post-Kamasi Brainfeeder mission of re-engineering funk jazz music, working with veterans like Steve Kuhn, Arthur Verocai and in-house bass wizard Thundercat. On Brainfeeder.

Series-A
Evolution ⁵ Technology

These rad electro jams from 1987 only ever made it to the promotional stage before their original label went defunct, leaving only 50 copies out in the wild. That’s a shame, as Series-A did great work with Evolution⁵ Technology, a forward-looking synth-single with a real kick to it. All remastered and re-pressed now, with the addition of a new JTC remix.
  • Genre(s):
  • Electronic / Electro / IDM / EBM

Space Art
Nous Savons Tout

1977 was pretty early to be making synth-pop, but that’s when French duo Space Art got going. This reissue is of their third single, first released in 1978. Nous Savons Tout feels like it looks to the future, with epic synth-work that recalls French electro-proggers Heldon. Remastered 7” with original artwork and a postcard with some liner notes.
  • Genre(s):
  • Electronic / Electro / IDM / EBM

Cute Heels
Third Skin EP

Barcelona’s Cute Heels offers up a synthesis of classic dance genres, with aspects of EBM, Detroit techno and Chicago house all present on the Third Skin EP. Old-school floor-filling stuff. On top of the original cuts, we also get a pair of remixes: one from The Hacker and one from Steffi. Vinyl on Dark Entries, packaged along with one of their trademark postcards.

Mark Pritchard
Under The Sun

Under the Sun is the hugely anticipated solo album from Mark Pritchard, his first in 5 years. Features guest performers Beans from Anti-Pop Consortium, Thom Yorke, Linda Perhacs, and Bibio. Opening with ‘?’ which was initially released 7 years ago, moving through abstract glitches and anolog synth drones Pritchard is still up there as a great experimenter.

Kornél Kovács
The Bells

After plenty of DJ and 12” action both alone and as a key component of the Studio Barnhus trio, Kornél Kovács finally blesses the world with a debut full-length in the form of Bells. That’s an extra large portion of bouncy and delicious house, with a fresh spin to some of the productions. Out on Studio Barnhus.

Bay Area Retrograde (BART) Vol. 2

The BART is the rail transport system which connects San Francisco's Bay Area, and so it should come as no surprise that this is a compilation of music from that area around the late '70s and early '80s. With contributions from the likes of Factrix, Chrome and Tuxedomoon as well as lesser known artists from the scene, this compilation records the strange motorik mixture of krautrock, synthpop and no-wave that was spreading across the bay like a rash.

patten
Ψ (Psi)

That little fork sign is a Greek numeral that means 'Psi', a perfect representation of the deconstructed club music that is presented on this the duo's second LP for warp. Throughout they use influences from industrial music, UK dance, footwork and techno to present a multi-layered psychedelic form of dance music. Artwork is by 555-5555 ... sure to be noted at some point by Get In the Sea. 
  • Genre(s):
  • Electronic / Electro / IDM / EBM

Senking
Waiting Alpine

Senking is based in Cologne and has released on Raster-Noton, so cool, clipped digital productions come naturally to him. The 2 new tracks presented on Waiting Alpine have a big underwater vibe: each element has a deep reverberation, as if echoing around the ocean floor. 7” on -OUS in a striking holographic sleeve.
  • Genre(s):
  • Electronic / Electro / IDM / EBM

Inkke
Secret Palace

Inkke has been bubbling up through the fertile Glaswegian club scene fostered by institutions like Numbers and LuckyMe for a few years now: this EP release puts his sound within the reach of non-Scots. Secret Palace is a shiny, dramatic set of productions, set to knock new visions into the minds of clubbers everywhere. Out on LuckyMe.
  • Genre(s):
  • Electronic / Electro / IDM / EBM

Eric Copeland
Black Bubblegum

Black Dice dude Eric Copeland continues to create music that somehow sounds completely messed-up and rather poppy: Black Bubblegum indeed. This new album is particularly dub-focused, skanking up and down and round and round, festooned with all sorts of weird slices of sound. CD or pink-coloured vinyl on DFA.
  • Label(s):
  • DFA

Aphex Twin
Cheetah

The king of the bleeps descends from his Scottish castle to sell us a new piece of plastic music made by old synths, haggard robots, and your ringtone. Judging by the ludicrous, 50s-product-ad press release supplied by the good folks at Warp, you will be buying an actual synthesiser, but instead he'll probably encode the circuit diagrams into the vinyl grooves. Mysterious bastard. Will it be as good as his son's music, or do we have a new analord incoming? Who knows. We also had some cassettes but now we don't.
  • Genre(s):
  • Electronic / Electro / IDM / EBM

The Avalanches
Wildflower

Not many bands allow sixteen years to pass between their debut album and the follow-up, but Aussie electro-trip hop outfit The Avalanches aren't like many bands. Highly acclaimed first LP 'Since I Left You' attracted a lot of attention, and fans of the band (now sixteen whole years older) will no doubt be frothing at the mouth at the prospect of this unexpected renaissance. Lead track 'Frankie Sinatra' is a killer Vaudeville-inspired nutfest.

Thom Sonny Green
High Anxiety

Thom Sonny Green pays the bills by being the drummer in alt-J, but he also has a solo sideline in instrumental electronica. Solo debut High Anxiety is a generously-proportioned set of 21 tracks: some coalesce into hazy beat tracks, others space out into ambience. The man has multiple talents. CD / double LP on Infectious Music.
  • Genre(s):
  • Electronic / Electro / IDM / EBM

Emptyset
Demiurge

Subtext (Roly Porter, Vex’d) drop the sophomore LP from upstarts electronicists Emptyset. On Demiurge the Bristolian duo use IDM techniques to create music that shape-shifts from ultra-leftfield techno to full-on noise experiments. It’s an intense, brooding listen pitched somewhere between Merzbow and Modeselektor.

Various
Kern Vol.3 mixed by Objekt

Kern is the in-house mix series of Tresor, the famed Berlin techno haven. Objekt provides Volume 3, a slick-mixed collection of his favourite DJ tools: think Shanti Celeste, Monojunk, Clatterbox. The whole mix is available on CD, or you can get either ‘The Exclusives’ or ‘The Rarities’ from the selection as standalone 12”s.

Kate Simko & London Electronic Orchestra
Kate Simko & London Electronic Orchestra

Kate Simko has produced strong work in both the electronic and the composed-classical worlds: this full-length collaboration with the London Electronic Orchestra combines both. The risk with this kind of thing is that one element can feel tacked on to the other, but no such problem here: this album is a fully-formed suite of lush strings, shimmering samples and skipping rhythms. Includes a cover of an xx tune and a collaboration with Katy B.

Wrangler
Sparked: Modular Remix Project

Wrangler’s 2014 album LA Spark was generously handed around to a potent list of electronic producers, with the request that make something new, using “just one analog modular system of your choice”. Those who answered the call include Chris Carter, Scanner and Alessandro Cortini, with 11 versions in all. On MemeTune.
  • Genre(s):
  • Electronic / Electro / IDM / EBM

DJ Katapila
Trotro + Bonus Tracks

Awesome Tapes From Africa presents 4 cuts from Ghanaian producer DJ Katapila, who is clearly a force to be reckoned with. These tracks are clean and minimal but also packed with rhythms, leading to frantic dance movements. A well-placed drop of a Katapila tune could really boil things over in the club. 2 of the tracks on Trotro haven’t been pressed to vinyl before, so jump on board!

I Am The Cosmos
Letting It Go

Groove-stepping electronics from the fair city of Dublin. I Am The Cosmos are an electro-pop duo for whom every track feels like its own 12” remix: they are proper songs, with vocals and everything, but they expand into space in the same way as a premium dancefloor cut. 2 new tracks on Letting It Go, plus a Lumigraph remix of the title track.
  • Genre(s):
  • Electronic / Electro / IDM / EBM

James Ferraro
Rerex

Former the Skaters chap and actual skater James Ferraro has forged an idiosyncratic path over the last few years producing a dazzling array of musical styles and in fact winning the coveted the Wire Album of the Year in 2011. 'Rerex' is a wildly ambitious three hour extravaganza using cheap casios, loops and found sounds to lull us into his musical world.  

Todd Terje & The Olsens
The Big Cover-Up

The Big Cover-Up is a warm-hearted cover selection from Norwegian live disco crew The Olsens, plus producer Todd Terje. Boney M, Vangelis and Martin Denny (via Yellow Magic Orchestra) all show up, and the second slab of vinyl contains remixes of the covers by primo groove-producers like Prins Thomas and Dan Tyler! Party! 2 LPs on Olsen Records.

KETEV
I Know No Weekend

Berlin based Yair Elazar Glotman is constantly blurring the lines between sound art and contemporary music. With his KETEV project his create lush, almost glittery spacious sounds with multiple whirring tape loops, with slow percussive pounds that create voids in beautiful tapestries.  A definite must for fans of anything from Blackest Ever Black, Opal Tapes and acts such as EmptySet, Raime and Andy Stott.
  • Genre(s):
  • Electronic / Electro / IDM / EBM

Raime
Tooth

The second album from Raime lands with a bang: 8 tracks of precision-tooled bass-shudder and industrial wobble. Tooth feels like it has a huge amount of power kept tightly under control, the spindly guitar lines and post-dancehall dynamics acting as a straightjacket, keeping the tension high. A strong return, out on Blackest Ever Black.
  • Genre(s):
  • Electronic / Electro / IDM / EBM

ORKA
Va∂

ORKA, who feature a former member of Dälek, use a mixture of homemade instruments and synth-electronics to make their sound, sampling and arranging everything to form a curiously organic kind of techno / not-techno. Va∂ is their latest record: they’ve taken a more direct, rough-and-ready approach to this one, so you get unadulterated ORKA here.
  • Genre(s):
  • Electronic / Electro / IDM / EBM

Matthew Herbert
A Nude (The Perfect Body)

This is a Matthew Herbert album, so naturally all the sounds are taken from one particular source. This week, the source is a naked body! As the track titles indicate, this particular body does all kinds of things over the course of the day / album, including ‘moving’ and ‘shitting’. A Nude (The Perfect Body) is a double CD release on Accidental.
  • Genre(s):
  • Electronic / Electro / IDM / EBM

Mary Lattimore & Jeff Zeigler
Le Revelateur

Harp hero Mary Lattimore and regular collaborator Jeff Zeigler produced this music to accompany a 1968 silent film, Le Révélateur. Zeigler’s guitars and synths twirl themselves around Lattimore’s gorgeous, delay-tinged harp flurries, and the results make an excellent stand-alone album. I’d love to hear it alongside the film. LP on Thrill Jockey.

Kneebody + Daedelus
Kneedelus

Flying Lotus’ Brainfeeder imprint is constantly upping the ante when it comes to fusing deep electronic production and the freedom of jazz playing. Here Jazz quintet Kneebody pair up with equally face-paced and ever changing producer Daedelus. Aptly titled Kneedleus their two worlds collide, with a high energy burst, where you can’t really tell which is taking the lead… if, infact, any of them are!  

Suokas
The New Cycle

The New Cycle is meant to be ‘electronic music without the electronics’: the elements at its foundations are orchestral instruments (from both the Western and the Karelian traditions) and field recordings. The results, clicked into a techno-derived grid, are pretty damn lush and melodic: Suokas has pulled off a smart sonic trick. Edition of 500 LPs on Prah Recordings.

DJ R Tango
Road to Freedom

Road To Freedom is the first time ever that the work of DJ R Tango has been properly released: exciting times. The Hungarian producer conjures some potent landscapes out of what sounds like a shed-full of battered electronics: over the course of the album, brutal distorted beats fall back to allow synth-ambience to shine. Cassette release on Reject and Fade.

Helm & Decimus
We Will Meet At Other Human Parties

Helm (of Luke Younger and Alter Records) & Decimus (Put Murano, NNCK, Kellipah) sees the two come together for a collaborative album, interestingly called; We Will Meet At Other Human Parties. The cover artwork for this one is unnerving enough but the looping, grinding and gurgling sounds within take it to a realm of its own. Desolate bells toll and synths gurgle as if alive, or indeed, undead.

Karachi Files
Karachi Files

Brothers Hans and Andi Teichmann (Gebrüder Teichmann) assembled a group of electronic musicians from their native Germany as well as The Maldives and Pakistan. They met in Karachi, Pakistan and converted a house into a temporary studio and begun work. The result is a culturally eclectic and very raw sounding collection of recordings. Double gatefold for your listening pleasure.

Herbarium
Divine Herba

Imagine if somebody took the entire architectural digital concept-art esthetic and turned it into music: that’s what Herbarium sounds like. Electronic soundscapes inhabited by people who might just be digital drawings. Peaceful and carefully measured pads and with hints of industrial drums make Divine Herba an experience that will change your hopes for the future.
  • Genre(s):
  • Electronic / Electro / IDM / EBM

Eilbacher Moskos Moore
SEF III

Fun-time madness from the trio of Duncan Moore, Max Eilbacher and Alexander Moskos. Between them they’ve been heard in projects including AIDS Wolf, Horse Lords and Drainolith, but SEF III comes through like a noisy basement take on GRM electroacoustics: lots of fizz and pop from synths, reel-to-reel tape manipulations and strange vocals. Yeah! Out on Ehse.

Olafur Arnalds
Late Night Tales

Sensitive neo-classical pianist and composer Olafur Arnalds welcomes the listener into his musical taste with this latest edition of the Late Night Tales series. His mix combines plenty of different styles, and includes exclusive tracks from Arnór Dan, Arnalds himself, and actor David Tennant! Both CD and vinyl versions are mixed, but come with download codes for the unmixed original tracks.

Munma
Three Voices

Long-active Lebanese electronic producer Munma hasn’t often worked with vocalists, but that firmly changes on Three Voices, which finds his pulsing productions garnished with spoken-word, in the form of poets reading specially-written works. The resulting tracks tunnel deep into some personal spaces, guided by subterranean bass blasts. LP on Ruptured.
  • Genre(s):
  • Electronic / Electro / IDM / EBM

Lone
Levitate

Lone again, naturally. Matt Cutler's been doing this music thing for quite a while now -- 'Levitate', his sixth album under this moniker, gets an upgrade in tempo, revelling in ecstatic breakbeats and a love of jungle. It's a switch up from the arguably chiller music he's been making of late.

Sarathy Korwar
Day to Day

Sarathy Korwar draws on the folk musics of his Indian routes, as well as the kind of jazzy electronics associated with Ninja Tune, who release his debut album in collaboration with The Steve Reid Foundation. The genre-blend is a great success, a deep and exciting engagement that avoids the common pitfalls of such things.

Anohni
Hopelessness

Anohni of Antony And The Johnsons presents her solo project. Production assistance from big-guns Hudson Mohawke and Oneohtrix Point Never make this a kaleidoscopic electronic experience, her ever-soaring vocals above a busy dance-swirl. Ecstatic and experimental. Hopelessness is released by Rough Trade.

AGF
Kon​:​3p>UTION to: e​[​VOL​]​ution

Kon:3p>UTION to: e[VOL]ution is an experimental album by producer and solo artist AGF. It’s his 9th solo album and his 30th studio album as a producer. It’s a strange, disjointed mix of electronic sounds and samples. It can be quite sinister with a lot of static and gurgling. An uneasy listen.  Available on CD.
  • Artist(s):
  • AGF

Liberation
Liberation

San Francisco based David West has many faces, from his work as guitarist and vocalist for Rank / Xerox and Rat Columns as well as another electronic project Lace Curtain. Liberation is his latest, somewhat theatrical synth pop, and wouldn’t sound amiss with scandinavians such as Det är Jag som är Döden.

Plaid
The Digging Remedy

Brand new material from Warp electronica veterans Plaid. As ever, they have a patient, subtle approach to sound, much more focused on weaving fine textures then on big obvious ‘moments’. That said, there is some lively beat activity here and no mistake. The Digging Remedy is out on Warp Records.
  • Genre(s):
  • Electronic / Electro / IDM / EBM

Samuel
Luv Cry

Apparently no relation to the Four Tet shuffle-anthem, Samuel’s Luv Cry is a 4 track set of futuristic R&B. Samuel’s vocals are full of feels, and they are supported by shiny and lively production from Kwes (plus a bit of work from Lockah and Ozkharp). 10” on Ninja Tune affiliate Big Dada.
  • Genre(s):
  • Electronic / Electro / IDM / EBM

Oliver Coates
Towards The Blessed Islands

Prah Recordings is a new label set up by Stephen Bass of Moshi Moshi. Renowned cellist Coates straddles the worlds of classical and contemporary music. He has collaborations under his belt from the likes of Radiohead's Jonny Greenwood, DOOM and Massive Attack - and likewise he has performed concerto performances around the world notably with the BBC National Orchestra of Wales, BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra and Britten Sinfonia. Towards the blessed islands (the title taken from a poem by Norman MacCaig) is Coates debut album and devotes itself to rich sounds and clear harmonies which develop slowly over time. The cello is tuned or strung differently, or thrown into an unusual playing method on every track. "Think Sonic Youth and their guitars" says Coates.  The album was recorded in churches, tombs, disused oil rigs and field recordings were made in railway stations at night. Also there's covers of Squarepusher classic Tommib Help Buss as well as a beautiful restyling of Roy Harper's Another Day.
  • Genre(s):
  • Electronic / Electro / IDM / EBM

Necro Deathmort
The Capsule

Hold up, Necro Deathmort? Yeah, that’s three different words for death… Though they may not sound how you imagine, on this record at least. Following in a darker vein to band mates Teeth of the Sea, but mixing rock (or in these guys’ case extreme metal) with electronic experiments brings a huge range of influences to the table. As heavy as Neurosis, but as meticulous as Autechre.

Death in Vegas
Transmission

Death In Vegas return with their first album in 5 years, and it’s a big one: Transmission’s vinyl edition fills 3 records. Here, main Vegas man Richard Fearless enlists the vocal assistance of artist / actress Sasha Grey, giving a human presence to the detached drones and pounding techno beats. Released by the Drone label.
  • Genre(s):
  • Electronic / Electro / IDM / EBM

D∆WN
Not Above That

Instrumental grime connoisseurs Local Action records release some ridiculously catchy and joyful pop-house from DAWN and a predictably excellent ambient remix from Deadboy. On Not Above That DAWN (aka Dawn Richards of Danity Kane fame) switches between dance genres to create something fresh and vibrant.

Black Sun Productions
Toilet Chant

Black Sun Productions are Pierce and Massimo, who worked with Coil for their live stage performances back in the day. Strange, doomy ambience is the name of the game on this album, which also features some vocals from Coil’s Jhonn Balance. First released on CD in 2004, Toilet Chant is now issued on vinyl by Hallow Ground.

Konstruktivists
A Dissembly

Konstruktivists have been releasing pretty much every year (with the odd gap here and there) since 1982. With a recent album out, Dark Entries look back at its beginnings; mixing with Throbbing Gristle and all of the Industrial records gang. This is a must for anyone into the initial industrial releases - gritty, cold, experimentation with a load of hardware.

Black Sun Productions
Dies Juvenalis

Massimo & Pierce made up Black Sun Productions. Most known for their live work with Coil, as well as working with Lydia Lunch and H.R. Giger. Heavily effected vocals, beautiful xylophone and dramatic percussion create something strangely beautiful. Whilst they disbanded in December 2012, they reformed as the Anarcocks in 2014.

Darkstar & Gwilym Gold
Rope / Folk

Darkstar have fully succeeded in that interesting transformation they’ve been pulling off for a while now, going from dubstep producers to electronic pop performers. Rope / Folk pairs them with composer Gwilym Gold, tasked with accompanying Holly Blakey’s contemporary dance performance (see the sleeve art). 12” on The Vinyl Factory.
  • Genre(s):
  • Electronic / Electro / IDM / EBM

Loose Meat
Loose Meat

Loose Meat are a duo made up from Kristian Craig Robinson aka Capitol K and Arp Cleveland from the Archie Bronson Outfit. The pair have managed to do what they set out to do: create something new. The music is a complicated yet in-your-face and heady mix of Disco, Swingbeat, Downtempo and electro. Stream-of-consciousness lyrics written by Cleveland are performed by Brazilian artist Cibelle with contributions from Viva. The music is delivered via analogue synths and classic drum machines operated with the modern day wizardry of Robinson.
  • Genre(s):
  • Electronic / Electro / IDM / EBM

Synthi A
Ignition of the Sun

All the sounds on this record were created using the EMS Synthi AKS, which was one of the first synthesizers available (1971) and made legendary by Pink Floyd, Brian Eno, and The Polyphonic Workshop. Ignition of the Sun is a psychedelic analogue electronics trip back to the 70s. Perfect for any modular obsessives.
  • Genre(s):
  • Electronic / Electro / IDM / EBM

IXTAB
Alea

IXTAB, the collaboration of musicians who separately go under the names of Blood Room and Ovis Aurum, is kind of techno-based dance music. But, as the presentation on cassette rather than vinyl might tell you, this is rough-around-the-edges experimental techno, with jagged interjections and field recordings also jostling for position. Alea is on Bezirk.
  • Genre(s):
  • Electronic / Electro / IDM / EBM

Molecule
60°43' Nord

60° 43’ Nord is a banging techno record, primed and ready for club deployment. But, more unusually, it is also a document of the underwater soundscape found underneath a fishing boat in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean. Yes, it can be both things! Nice explorative work here from Molecule, released by Because Music.

Caro C
Everything Gives To Something Else

Caro C, previously Caro Snatch creates an expressive and intuitive blend of electronics, vocals, piano and strings with definite nods to Joanna Newsom, Ludovico Einaudi and Delia Derbyshire. Playing with seemingly simple and effective themes her sound palette breathes fresh air into the modern classical formula.
  • Genre(s):
  • Electronic / Electro / IDM / EBM

Max Graef & Glenn Astro
The Yard Work Simulator

First of all, shout-out to the Simpsons reference. The Yard-Work Simulator is the wild collaborative work of Glenn Astro and Max Graef. Being put together in Berlin, it is sort of a given that this record would turn out danceable, but Astro and Graef’s approach is nice and weird, unpredictable and inconsistent. The Yard-Work Simulator is out on Ninja Tune.
  • Genre(s):
  • Electronic / Electro / IDM / EBM

David August
J.B.Y / Ouvert

The first solo record in 2 years from David August arrives on Counter, the Ninja Tune-affiliated label. He’s been busy playing with the Deutsches Symphonie-Orchester Berlin you see… But he hasn’t forgotten his house music routes, as J.B.Y / Ouvert capably proves with its shimmer and bounce. 180g vinyl pressing.
  • Genre(s):
  • Electronic / Electro / IDM / EBM

Senking
Dazed

Gloomy and dubby techno explorations from Jens Massel on Raster Norton. The tracks run so slow you'd imagine you have chosen the RPM yet this is the pace he works. Exploring the human psych through depth of sound, the pieces are enlivened by snatches of Michael Cramm's vocals which humanise the dislocated bloopery. 

MYMK
Early Bloom

Early Bloom is the second record by MYMK. What it maintains from debut album Jeopardy is a close attention to textural detail: these tracks are full of micro-tweaked electric quiver and droning tones. But these new tracks move a little further in a rhythmic direction; albeit stuttering digital rhythms. Clear vinyl release on Tiny Gods.
  • Genre(s):
  • Electronic / Electro / IDM / EBM

Metrist
This Is For Sore Is Just There

As track titles such as ‘Petrol Arses’, ‘That Prick I Hate’ and ‘Shit Patches’, Metrist’s music neither takes itself too seriously, nor cares if you like it. This Is For Sore Is Just There is rough and nasty, with distorted bass and distorted synths coalescing into rhythmic patterns, only to be fragmented by random harsh blasts. LP on Black Opal.
  • Genre(s):

Pregnant, the erstwhile collaborative project of Daniel Trudeau and Style Munson, have assembled an interesting blur of material for Made In China. It sometimes sounds like Animal Collective being processed relentlessly by a computer using a broken electro-pop setting, and no, that isn’t a bad thing. 50 copies on red cassette, out on Them There Records.

Spacetravel
Dancing Therapy

Luca Cara heads up Spacetravel, going for the scope of that alias with NASA-approved house music (citation needed) that blends together electronics with acoustics and lets them loop around each-other with all of the universe's joyous futility. High energy and sure to please about five different electronic contingents, 'Dancing Therapy' has got you.

18+
Collect

Once anonymous duo 18+ return to Houndstooth for their sophomore album following 2014’s Trust. Recording and collaborating split between Berlin and Honolulu Justin Swinburne and Samia Mirza pour this separation into their work together. Sonically sounding like The Streets with a contemporary trap twist.

Adult Jazz
Earrings Off!

After their success with Gist Is in 2014, gaining adoration from Bjork and David Byrne (not the worst fans you could have) Adult Jazz have taken pages from their experimental endorsees and moved way into leftfield electronic experimentation. Bizarre off-kilter synths and horns coupled with unnerving vocal processing.. They’ve found the perfect place to release with as well with Tri-Angle records.

James Blake
The Colour In Anything

James Blake surprises and delights the musical world with the sudden announcement + release of his third album. Reportedly co-written with Frank Ocean and co-produced with Rick Rubin, The Colour In Anything is another strong set of sad dancefloor smashes and bass-weighted piano ballads, tied together with Blake’s heavily melancholic vocals.

Odonis Odonis
Post Plague

Odonis Odonis smashed the radar with 2011s Hollandaze which was a bizarre blend of lo-fi shoegaze with punk aggression. Post Plague shows similar genrte bending and smashing, with Nine Inch Nails and Laibach industrial groove and dark brute force, with the impassioned vocal screams of These New Puritans. It’s a truly mesmerising mix, do you bob or bang your head, that’s the question.

Pita
Get In

Mr. Editions Mego himself, Peter Rehberg aka Pita, returns with his first full-length solo album in a long time: 14 years! Get In continues the informal series begun with Get Out  and Get Off, showering the listener once more with torrents of digital sound, some harsh and some beautiful. On Editions Mego (where else?).

Redinho
Redinho

Redinho is funky fellow with an interest in all things... well, in all things.  His tunes are washed in bright sustained synths and bombastic percussion, taking influence from the sounds procured by artists working in grime and hip-hop. Whatever he's making, Redinho is maximal, sounding like a one man big band. Most of this self-titled effort is framed around '80s funk with programmed drums that lay in wait while the rest of the party pops off.

Dennis Young (Liquid Liquid)
Wave: Electronic Music 1984-1988

Dennis Young is part of Liquid Liquid, meaning that his place in the electronic musician's history books is already assured (they provided the backbone to Grandmaster Flash’s ‘White Lines’). But as a solo artist he also embarked his own shimmering electronic explorations, first released as cassettes in the 80’s and now reissued here as Wave: Electronic Music, thanks to Bureau B!

Torn Hawk
Union and Return

Torn Hawk is the project of Luke Wyatt, who is responsible for every single sound on this record. Union and Return sounds quite a lot like video game music to these ears: possible to accompany an adventure set in the digitally rendered sky-city of the cover art? Either way, it’s an atmospheric listen. Released by Mexican Summer.

Kyoka
SH

Kyoka has recently had the pleasure of spending time working in Stockholm’s famed electroacoustic EMS studios, and that advanced approach towards sound is very much in evidence on this EP. Sh is a varied collection, with unpredictable shifts in tempo and sonic content occurring within tracks. 500 12” copies only, on Raster Noton.

Timothy J. Fairplay
The Cat Prowls Again / A Strange Servant

Timothy J Fairplay is an erstwhile Andrew Weatherall collaborator, in various combinations including their group The Asphodells. Some of the Weatherall penchant for pleasant psychedelic electronics is clearly shared by Fairplay, whose The Cat Prowls Again / A Strange Servant is a spacey groove-ride and no mistake. 7” on Hoga Nord.
  • Genre(s):
  • Electronic / Electro / IDM / EBM

Jlin
Dark Energy

Hailing from the humorously named Gary, Indiana, Jlin evidently picks up on the vibrations of nearby Chicago. The chunky staccato rhythms of Dark Energy form an intense canvas for this footwork aficionado to sprinkle with peppered melancholia. Features guest vocals from Holly Herndon. Out on CD and vinyl double LP from Planet Mu.
  • Genre(s):
  • Electronic / Electro / IDM / EBM

Shit Robot
What Follows

Shit Robot returns with a third full-length LP. What Follows is a real analogue synth album, discovered organically through playing around with equipment. The results are dancefloor-ready electro-pop, and A-list guests on the record include Alexis Taylor of Hot Chip and Nancy Whang of LCD Soundsystem! Out on DFA.
