1115
The Drowned World

High-tempo electronic experiments from the search engine-unfriendly 1115. On Drowned World the duo bring together analogue gear and looped and modulated vocals. Their aim is to create an updated form of traditional percussive musical forms. This is like a dense, repetitive and extremely great kosmische drum circle that slowly collapses on itself.

  • Electronic / Electro / IDM / EBM

Yearning Kru
Copper Vale

Copper Vale finds Taiwan producer Yearning Kru conjuring up a fantasy landscape derived from sci-fi literature. So expect a swirl of electronics dashed heavily with samples, all adding up to a lo-fi evocation of an imaginary realm. Copper Vale is released on Planet Mu in a joint effort with Kuedo’s Knives imprint.

Thug Entrancer
Arcology

With his previous release on Software Thug Entrancer introduced us to his abstract blend of Techno and footwork and with Arcology he’s extrapolated it to the Nth degree. There are joyous Squarepusher esque uplifting chord sequences, 303 squelches, and FM burbs atop of a bed of footwork shuffles. There’s a lot of rave culture joy in this.

Illum Sphere
Second Sight

Veteran of the Manchester scene (and Hoya:Hoya cofounder) Illum Sphere lands his first tracks in almost 2 years, on the Ninja Tune label. Second Sight and its partner ‘Ritual’ are tightly oscillating mechanistic bangers, with a good deal of cold-wave synth lathered over the top. 12” vinyl on Ninja Tune.

MV Carbon
The Sun Will Turn on You

Ominous industrial drone from New York based artist MV Carbon. On The Sun Will Turn on You she mangles noisy homemade synths with processed cello, for a sound which could be the imaginary score to the bleakest John Carpenter film. This edition of 250 from Discombobulate comes on striking red vinyl, obviously.

Baumann / Koek
Baumann / Koek

Bureau B reissue Baumann/Koek’s self-titled 1978 kosmische synth workout on vinyl LP and CD. ‘Reissue’ doesn’t do justice to the label’s discovery of this dense and psychedelic drone album, which was originally pressed to only 1000 copies. The glistening arpeggios and drum machines were so far ahead of time, that now they deserve to be considered alongside contemporaries such as Klaus Schulze and Dieter Moebius.

Tenstoreys
The Yellow

This debut cassette release by Tenstoreys is the third release on Kwes’ imprint Bokkle. The Yellow is a surreal piece of tape manipulation and sound collage that comes across as a sort of melodic pop-drone. Soupy samples and cut-up percussion fight for space against cheap synthesizers. A relentlessly unpredictable and fun album that will terrify the neighbours.
  • Genre(s):
  • Electronic / Electro / IDM / EBM

FvRTvR
Following Shapes to the Edge of a Drift

FvRTvR is a project featuring long-term talented weirdo Fritz Welch, working with Guido Henneboehl. The sonic results that wash up on Following Shapes To The End Of A Drift are wild and deranged: messed-up throat sounds lead the charge of all sorts of unidentified ‘other’ noises. White vinyl, 250 copies, on Discombobulate.

Alex Smoke
Love Over Will

Available as CD and vinyl LP on R&S, Love over Will is a grand and melancholy collection of electronica from Alex Smoke. Following a run of great EPs, this album blends icy new wave synths and drum machines with Smoke’s classical training and longing voice. His crisp electronic productions are always matched with a dark and inventive wit.
  • Genre(s):
  • Electronic / Electro / IDM / EBM

Abbott / Buxton
Wasserfall I-IV

Trevor Abbott’s Wasserfall series of tracks share an analogue-synth directness and a catchy electro-dancefloor sensibility, although some are also happy to plunge into the abrasive (see ‘WF III’). Just 100 copies of this 12” vinyl out there, self-released by the artist within a coloured sleeve.
  • Genre(s):
  • Electronic / Electro / IDM / EBM

Howes
3.5 Degrees

Youthful producer Howes has compositional skills beyond his years, working with modular synth patches with a focus often lacking from many stick-all-the-leads-in-and-hope-for-the-best synth dabblers. 3.5 Degrees is his debut album, and is made up mostly of single-take tracks recorded after days of careful patch design. Strong, multifaceted electronics out on Melodic.
  • Genre(s):
  • Electronic / Electro / IDM / EBM

Ricardo Donoso
Symmetry

The first three albums produced by Ricardo Donoso have been compiled into two very handsome box sets by Denovali. Minimal polyrhythmic ambient compositions that take the listener to a special place. As hypnotic and questing as a Steve Reich piece. 3CD box or a limited-to-200-copies-only quadruple white vinyl box.
  • Genre(s):
  • Electronic / Electro / IDM / EBM

Joey LaBeija
Shattered Dreams

Puerto Rican musical heritage and contemporary hard electronic influences meld together in the person of Joey LaBeija, whose Shattered Dreams is a dynamic set of high-action rollers that don’t stick to one formula. Messed up percussion sits alongside bursts of noise, although usually coalescing into danceable forms. Vinyl LP on Purple Tape Pedigree.

Francesco Cavaliere
Gancio Cielo

The debut album from artist, composer and all-round eccentric Francesco Cavaliere, Gancio Cielo is available on vinyl LP from Hundebiss records. Francesco’s voice is the main source of his music, but twisted into strange new shapes by homemade circuit boards and effects. The mixture of recognizable vocals and mangled ones creates a surreal drone collage reminiscent of the bizarrest radiophonic experiments.

Moderat
III

Moderat are an electronic three-piece consisting of Gernot Bronsert, Sebastian Szary and Sascha Ring. III is the completion of a trilogy that has seen the once self-proclaimed “Lap-top Boy Band” grow to be a single like-minded entity. their debut, I, was the coming together of very separate ideas whilst the acclaimed II saw them becoming closer. The inspiration behind Moderat is to create the feeling that you’d get from watching a movie with a mind-blowing soundtrack. III is available as a 6 LP box set, double LP, Standard single LP, Double CD or single CD.

Franck Vigroux & Matthew Bourne
Radioland: Radio-Activity Revisited

Radioland is a project for covering Kraftwerk, made up of Franck Vigroux and Matthew Bourne (accompanied live by visual artist Antoine Schmitt). Taking on a classic like Radio-Activity is a bold move, but they pull of the delicate balance between staying faithful to the material and slavishly copying it. Worth a listen! The LP edition comes with a CD, and the CD edition comes in a 20-page book.

DJ Katapila
Trotro

The always reliable Awesome Tapes From Africa return with this ace CD and double vinyl LP from DJ Katapila. Trotro is a fast-paced mash-up of Ghanaian traditional music and modern technology. Katapila sings, shouts and chants over backing that sounds as if it had been beamed from the golden age of detroit house. Ferociously fast drum machines chatter over the minimalist musical forms of gome, kpanlogo and gyama.

Orson Hentschel
Feed The Tape

A debut of abrasive drone and sound art from Orson Hentschel. Denovali release Feed the Tape on digipak CD and 180g double vinyl LP. Hentschel draws on minimal classical music, dark ambient and middle-age vocal forms to create something extremely distinctive. Here, repetitive, barely-present drones can be suddenly replaced with pounding industrial drums.

Prince Rama
Xtreme Now

Before we go any further: good god, that cover. It turns out to be a good fit, both conceptually (Xtreme Now is all about a hallucination-inspired mission to meld art with extreme sports) and sonically: the music is as colourful and confused as that remarkable image. And that isn’t a bad thing! Xtreme Now is a wild ride for ambitious dancers, presented on neon green vinyl.

Paid Reach
I Ping

The second 7” vinyl from Paid Release, a new pseudonym for house upstart Gunnar Wendel aka Kassem Mosse. These releases push Mosse’s unique sound into even weirder, off-grid zones. Ping sounds both nasty and funky and Experience Change has an abstract, weightless quality that you can’t shake off. They’re definitely bangers, but we wouldn’t recommend trying to dance to them.

King Midas Sound / Fennesz
Edition 1

Real heavyweight collaboration right here! King Midas Sound, Kevin Martin’s vehicle for enormous bass and dark soulful songs, join up with none other than Fennesz, the wizard of electronically processed guitar haze. The resultant Edition 1 is a suitably weighty and textured trip, presented with a bonus disc / download of instrumental versions. On Ninja Tune.
  • Genre(s):
  • Electronic / Electro / IDM / EBM

Rocketnumbernine
Two Ways

Following on from being Neneh Cherry’s backing band for her last album and tour (yeah, really), Rocketnumbernine head back to their original duo activities. Produced by James Holden, Two Ways is a pair of improvised live jams, wild drums and cosmic synths matching each other perfectly. 12” on Border Community.
  • Genre(s):
  • Electronic / Electro / IDM / EBM

Driftmachine
Eis Heauton

On Eis Heauton Driftmachine programmed their modular synthesizers with self-generating patches and then just let them jam. The results are the Berlin-based electronic duo’s most fascinating work yet. This is no technical experiment though. Heavy dub atmospherics grind against harsh snares and techno tempos. Vinyl LP from the Hallow Ground label.
  • Genre(s):
  • Electronic / Electro / IDM / EBM

Arkadelphia
Islands of Mind

Travel deep with Arkadelphia, who has a weighty collection of ambience and occasional leftfield techno for you to dig into. As the release stretches over 4 hours and 34 tracks, it makes sense that Islands of Mind is being released on USB stick full of FLAC files (download codes included for other formats) in a ‘special’ brown paper bag. 50 copies only!

K-LONE
Crunch / Rude / Cellar Door

New on Badimup; London via Leeds producer K-LONE puts out a vinyl 12” of dark, percussive electronic music. Crunch/Rude/Cellar Door is hybrid bass music that mixes spaced-out melodies with aggro 2-step and distorted synth basslines. These moody explorations of UK dance music are held together with roadman samples and dank sub-bass.

Yellow Magic Orchestra
X∞ Multiplies

X∞ Multiples sees Yellow Magic Orchestra dropping their serious persona to have a bit of a laugh. Electronic songs and instrumentals are interspersed with comic sketches. There is also a humourous take on Archie Drell & The Bells soul classic Tighten Up. Transparent 180g vinyl, limited to 1000 copies.
  • Genre(s):
  • Electronic / Electro / IDM / EBM

FIS
The Blue Quicksand is Going Now

Fis has previously dabbled in weird drum’n’bass, but here, on his debut full-length The Blue Quicksand Is Going Now, he drops out a lot of the rhythm to leave us with hazy electronic soundscapes chattering around the sonic field. Great new stuff from New Zealand, released on the Loopy label.

Acre
Better Strangers

With previous EPs released on Tectonic, Cold Recordings and PAN’s sub-label Codes, Better Strangers is Acre’s album debut. From previous works showcasing rave flashbacks and heavily distorted jungle breaks akin to Andy Stott productions. From his own words Acre has injected more emotion into this release than previous outings, meaning this could be a pleasantly tough record to digest. Available on double LP or CD.

Piero Umiliani
Synthi Time

Piero Umiliani is part of the canon of Italian film composers, but he stepped away from the orchestra for a while in 1971 to record Synthi Time, a lovely collection of short melodic pieces using synthesisers alongside a Hammond and a kind of harpsichord. Dreamy, bright, and a little odd, like a melancholic childhood. LP reissue on Schema.

Levantis
Romantic Psychology 1

First ever full-length release under the Levantis name. The name might be new to you, but you’ve almost certainly heard this producer’s material before (Whisper it, but this just might be Actress…). Romantic Psychology 1 has 11 tracks of expanding murky electronics, with that expert touch guiding things. Out on Technicolour.
  • Genre(s):
  • Electronic / Electro / IDM / EBM

Arca
Mutant

Second full-length from Venezuelan producer Arca. It would be fair to say that he is a ‘hot’ producer these days, given that he played a reasonable co-production role on Bjork’s Vulnicura album this year. Mutant has 20 tracks of expansive electronics, including the remarkable ‘Vanity’ from earlier this year. On Mute.
  • Genre(s):
  • Electronic / Electro / IDM / EBM

Fhloston Paradigm
Cosmosis Vol 1

Fhloston Paradigm is a pseudonym of Philadelphia groover King Britt, following a busy career with releases on plenty of your favourite labels. Cosmosis Vol. 1 lands on Hyperdub, where it’s adventurous range of tracks (spanning ambience, twitchy soundscapery and hard analogue house) fit right in with the crowd. 12” EP.

Power Glove
EP II

EP II follows on, naturally enough, from EP I, which released for Record Store Day and didn’t hang around long. Power Glove make electronic music that is weighty on the 1980’s cultural influences (I mean they are named after a Nintendo accessory…). Out on Invada, pressed to red vinyl.
  • Genre(s):
  • Electronic / Electro / IDM / EBM

Wolves and Horses
Every Moment Of Light And Dark

Belgian ambience from Wolves and Horses, aka Christian Saint-Viteux. The tracks that make up Every Moment Of Light And Dark were apparently composed with imaginary short films in mind, and are suitably cinematic as a result. Slow-moving atmospheres, as you’d expect, buoyed occasionally by emotive touches of piano. CD on UAE Records.

t.e.s.o.
No.3. Obliate

The guys behind the t.e.s.o. project evidently love Brutalism, Modernism and all their trappings. Naturally they also like electronic music, with an Autechre-like approach. (especially towards titles: mmmm, give ‘e_flaer 10’ or ‘pb iW 05.’ another spin…) Self-made electronics guide them towards radical experimental constructions. Double LP on Aperture.

Calum Gunn / Sebastian Camens
Slant Deviations


Airbird & Napolian
Mr. Foolish

Producers Joel Ford (Ford & Lopatin, Ejecta) and Ian Evans (Napolian) have teamed up as Airbird & Napolian. The pair met whilst working for the highly regarded Software label. Collaborating on Mr. Foolish allowed them to do what they wanted to do, how they wanted to do it - mixing cosmic funk, American house and hip-hop.

Normal Nada
Transmutacao Cerebra

Hard-hitting metakuredo music from famed Lisbonian Normal Nada, who you also might know as Erre Mente or Qraqmaxter CiclOFF (that last one really rolls of the keys…). The 7 tracks that make up Transmutaceo Cerebra roll fast and frantic, but with a joyous good vibe. Released as an LP on the Principie Discos label.

James Ferraro
Skid Row

Skid Row is James Ferraro’s follow up to the 2013 album NYC Hell 3 a.m. Like its predecessor, Skid Row is an exercise in neo-brutalism, here however, he has thrown his own deconstructed versions of thrash, modern classical and country music into the mix. The album was recorded in L.A. and the lyrics, which started out as poems addressing the state of society, soak up what Ferraro sees around him: excess, poverty, racism and police brutality.
  • Genre(s):
  • Electronic / Electro / IDM / EBM

Vessels
Dilate Remixes

If Vessels’ recent album Dilate wasn’t club-ready enough for you (unlikely, but I’ll continue), Dilate Remixes should sort you right out. They’ve called in the minimal techno talents of Barker & Baumecker, the housey vibes of Ripperton, and Monkeytown man Alex Banks, for a deep, hedonistic trio of reinterpretations. 12” on Bias.

Django Django
Pause Repeat

Taken from Django Django’s second album Born Under Saturn, Pause Repeat is a joyous, summer-filled pop song. Now it’s been pulled apart and reassembled by the likes of Debruit, Clap! Clap!, Bok Bok, and JD Twitch of Optimo. Expect some excellently percussive reimaginings. 12” vinyl available on Because Music.

Lamb
5

Lamb released 5 (suitably enough, their fifth album) in 2011, the first recorded results of their reformation after a half-decade away. People seemed to like it, so it is now reissued in deluxe style by Music On Vinyl, who have pressed up 1000 copies to 180g silver vinyl. This version also includes two bonus tracks, one featuring Damien Rice.

DJ Paypal
Sold Out

DJ Paypal is here with Sold Out, stretching the pun as far as it can go there. Going for pure fun in a footwork world, this is his debut for Brainfeeder and the music is a mix of fast tempo remixes of genres such as jazz and salsa combining EDM and hip hop elements. Sold out? We'll see. Should be.
  • Genre(s):
  • Electronic / Electro / IDM / EBM

Various
The Art of Remix

Nonclassical imposes its strict remix policy -- you can only remix with sounds that already exists in the track -- on a roster of famous electronic artists, from Hot Chip having a go at the music of Gabriel Prokofiev to Thom Yorke using his DJ skills to do things with 'Cortical Songs'. This record takes revered classical pieces and contextualises them in a completely different fashion, hoping to make the genre a little more club-friendly. 

Klavikon
Klavikon

Klavikon approaches prepared piano with an aesthetic drawn as much from techno and IDM as from John Cage. “No looping!” is the key: like Colin Stetson, Klavikon makes more sound than seems possible in one moment. I mean that kick drum sound has to be a sample right… Nope, that’s from the piano, unsequenced. Debut album on Nonclassical.

Samoyed
Saturday

Saturday by Samoyed was recorded over a four year period and reflects the 16 changing seasons that have past in that time. Samoyed is heavily influenced by his natural surroundings - he lives in a hut in northern Scotland where the winters are harsh and the summers are fleeting. Recorded on barely functioning ‘80s equipment, the digital sheen is tempered by fuzzy lo-fi warmth. LP on Flask, limited to 300 copies.
  • Genre(s):
  • Electronic / Electro / IDM / EBM

FaltyDL
Visceral

FaltyDL is back on Ninja Tune for two fresh new dancefloor rollers. Last year’s full-length In The Wild took things in a kind of experimental direction, full of ambience and build. That was very welcome, but a pro like FaltyDL wouldn’t squander the opportunity of a 12” on anything but full-on bangers. Heavyweight vinyl in Ninja Tune’s house sleeve.
  • Genre(s):
  • Electronic / Electro / IDM / EBM

Traxman
Slash Time

Funky-fresh footwork frenzy from experienced producer and Teklife and Tekk Djz Traxman. Soulful synths, twisted samples, and those irresistible snare hits that run rings around prospective dancers. Features significant contributions from DJ Fred too. LP and CD editions, on the Duck N’ Cover label.
  • Genre(s):
  • Electronic / Electro / IDM / EBM

FOUND
Cloning

In the four years since their 2011 album, Factorycraft, Scottish folktronica band, Found have reduced their numbers to become a duo of founding members Ziggy Campbell and Kev Sim. On their new album, Cloning, the guitars are replaced a thick fog of analogue synths as the duo introduce new influences into their music such as groundbreaking ‘60s electronic duo Beaver & Krause, Vangelis, Tangerine Dream and the soundtracks of John Carpenter.

Yellow Magic Orchestra
Solid State Survivor

The legendary Yellow Magic Orchestra’s classic second album Solid State Survivor is available on vinyl again! A major synth-pop progenitor here: so influential that even if you’ve not heard it directly, you’ve probably heard something that covers or samples it. 
  • Genre(s):
  • Electronic / Electro / IDM / EBM

Christopher Bissonnette
Pitch, Paper & Foil

Christopher Bissonnette patches in his analogue synthesiser once more for this new outing on Kranky. While plenty have been tutting about ‘peak modular’ recently, with Pitch, Paper & Foil Bissonnette shows that a clear vision and tight control can achieve wonder without going bleep-mad.

CRYSTAL
Crystal Station 64

Crystal are a Japanese gang of sleek synth enthusiasts, apparently taking as much influence from the soundtracks to 1980’s action comedy films as from fellow electro producers as seen on the Ed Banger roster (they were ‘discovered’ by Justice). Crystal Station 64 is their debut full-length, and includes a bonus collaboration with Ikonika!

Vert
The Days Within

Vert (aka Adam Butler) has been away from music for 6 years, apparently writing a novel. He’s back now though, with 11 new tracks making up The Days Within. Melodic and dramatic electronic music, unquestionably the produce of an experienced and inventive producer. Released on the imaginatively-named Shitkatapult label.
  • Genre(s):
  • Electronic / Electro / IDM / EBM

Oneohtrix Point Never
Garden of Delete

A new full-length album from Oneohtrix Point Never, a project that Daniel Lopatin seems to be taking ever deeper into the world of digital hyper-reality. Garden Of Delete is festooned with painfully bright synth sounds and bitcrushed samples, creating a vivid and disorientating sound-universe. On Warp Records.
  • Genre(s):
  • Electronic / Electro / IDM / EBM

Prequel Tapes
Inner Systems

Prequel Tapes retrieved the basis of these tracks from teenage recordings, and filtered them through subsequent years of experience in making and loving club sounds. Inner Systems is a very personal work, but also a pretty dance-ready one. The heavyweight LP is packaged with a 16 page booklet. On R’Coup’D.
  • Genre(s):
  • Electronic / Electro / IDM / EBM

John Lemke
Nomad Frequencies

John Lemke‘s Nomad Frequencies LP is an electroacoustic work with a grand scope. Over the course of 10 tracks, Lemke melds analogue synthesis and field recordings with percussion and melodic instrumentation. Also, prominent use of tuning forks. Nomad Frequencies is released on CD or double gatefold LP by Denovali.
  • Genre(s):
  • Electronic / Electro / IDM / EBM

Bernd Kistenmacher
Wake Up In The Sun

Bernd Kistenmacher grew up a little too late to roll with the Tangerine Dreams and the Klaus Schulzes of the German electronic music world, but he didn’t let that stop him: he just got hold of the same sorts of analogue synthesisers and got involved, ignoring the digital 80’s world around him. Wake Up In The Sun was first released in 1987, now reissued by Bureau B.

Phork
Disappear In Raveland

Whilst existing in club parameters, Disappear in Raveland by Phork is a minimalist and experimental work that also takes in the surreal and adventurous. Within these parameters, Chicago house, footwork, drone and and techno are all given equal weight. The reconstructed footwork beats could make this the ace in the hole in any DJ’s set. Phork has previously released work on Opal Tapes, NNA and Orange Milk to great acclaim. Disappear in Raveland is available on vinyl LP on Time No Place.

MM / Imaabs
Body Horror II

MM is the abbreviated form of Miss Modular (the boss of Her Records), who obviously isn’t afraid to push into experimental territory while still maintaining the dance. Two wild pummelings on her side, and on the B we have Chilean producer Imaabs, who goes slow and hypnotising with his material. On the Purple Tape Pedigree label.

Robot Koch
Hypermoment

As producer Robot Koch relocated from Berlin to L.A.  he was inspired by an Alan Moore quote about the universe being a four-dimensional site in which nothing changes or moves and that every moment that has existed up until now and will exist in the future is part of one big Hypermoment. Hypermoment is Koch’s first album in four years and his first for Monkeytown, the highly regarded imprint of Modeselektors. The album features old collaborators such as Schwarzmodul and Delhia De France as well as upcoming artists such as Mree, Stephen Henderson and Fassine.

Syntoma
Syntoma

Syntoma were a Mexican underground synth-pop group active in the 1980’s. Little-heard outside of their region, EM Records allows us to redress the balance, revealing the beautifully bright sound of the trio. Tinny drum machines and early consumer-synths are used to propel shiny pop songs, with compelling results.

Spacey and thoughtful jams on Bureau B.

Acid funk flavours and expansive synthscapes combine on Sipps to create an alien mood that’s infused with urban melancholy. Out on limited 12" vinyl from 1080p. One copy per customer.

Bringing his inimitable percussion groove shifting style into the mix.

Sim Hutchins
I Enjoy To Sweep A Room

Occasionally tense, always emotional and beautifully constructed, I Enjoy To Sweep A Room is the debut album from Essex boy Sim Hutchins. Blurred, synthy and richly produced it’s a woozy journey into the mind of a post-grime talent. Well worth your time. Out on vinyl LP from No Pain In Pop. Included bonus CD.
  • Genre(s):
  • Electronic / Electro / IDM / EBM

T.Raumschmiere
T.Raumschmiere

T.Raumschmiere is the project of Marco Haas, label boss of the Shitkatapult imprint. This self-titled album is the first in 7 years, and although the press release ties itself in knots over whether or not this is ambient music, to my ears it sounds like industrially-tinged dark synth-simmer, with some vocal tracks. Has a strong atmosphere though. On Album Label.

Spatial Relation
Beyond The Zero

Spatial Relation pitch themselves somewhere between vintage electro-pop and IDM. Beyond The Zero is their debut full-length. The drum and synth programming is tight and precise, and although I found the vocals and lyrics to be so affected as to seem a parody of electro-pop, I guess they do fit in quite well. 300 vinyl copies on Peripheral Minimal.

Debut album Head-Visions was initially released in 1986, and is now reissued by Bureau B.

Arash Moori
Heterodyne

Heterodyne has reportedly been in-progress for 13 full years, which is quite something. The result is Arash Moori’s magnum opus, a suite of experimental electronics that is often rhythmic and sometimes harsh. Always compelling though, especially when you learn that many of these sounds are from self-built devices. On Type.

Kangding Ray
Cory Arcane

Hardcore murky techno producers usually stay a long way away from any kind of narrative, preferring direct sonic stimulation. But Kangding Ray’s new release is something of a concept album, about a character named Corey Arcane. Nevertheless, these productions are still as tight as anything Ray has produced: e.g. very good. On Raster Norton.

The Art Of Remix EP #1

The Art Of Remix challenges electronic producers to make new dancing gold out of classical music, with the extra twist that they have to use only the original source material. Stepping up to the likes of Prokokiev we have heavy hitters like Thom Yorke and DJ Yoda. This first EP of the project is well worth hearing. From Nonclassical.

Underworld

Zeus B. Held
Vinyl Collection

Vinyl Collection compiles a stack of material taken from the three solo albums of Zeus B. Held, a German synth-head. With a background in prog, Held’s solo trips are fairly ornate, but there are also disco-like tracks, really weird tracks, and even a Beatles cover! 180g coloured vinyl in a stunningly ugly sleeve, from Medical Records.

Air Max '97
Core Work / Expenditure

Air Max ‘97 has set up a new label, Decisions. The label’s intentions are to move people with music, focusing on dancefloor tunes on vinyl and digital formats. Core Work and Expenditure are two brooding yet effective cuts to showcase the new label’s ethos. According to Taskforce, both sides are "certifiable bangers".

Hidden Rivers
Where Moss Grows

As both artist name (Hidden Rivers) and album name (Where Moss Grows) indicate heavily, this is music deeply rooted in the natural landscape. Refreshingly however, Huw Roberts (the man behind the project) understands that that doesn’t have to mean an acoustic folk-fest: instead he deploys mellow electronics for his explorations.

Michael Valentine West
Code 17 Abstraction

Code 17 Abstraction is an album of electronic wonder from Michael Valentine West (who you might know better as Mikimo Sosumi, Twiggy And The K-meson or Lower Third). Mad, funky, energetic styles tumble over each other, (we’re talking glitch, funk, maybe even a touch of drum & bass) forming a wild whole. LP release on Anna Ott.

Various
Ixtab Compilation Series, Volume 1

The first of what is promised to be several compilations, Ixtab Compilation Series, Volume 1 has tracks by Interbrain, Samoln, Idea Fire Company and BRRR, and Empfänger. A wild variety of names and a wild variety of cosmic disco sounds. A groovy, colourful compilation on Monofonus Press, limited to 300 copies.

Cut Hands
Festival Of The Dead

William Bennett's new record under the percussive Cut Hands moniker, 'Festival Of The Dead', is based around aggressive, deathly drums, as you'd expect by now -- it's the ex-Whitehouse member's third record under his new alias, and this particular branch of noise continues to sound more organic and rhythmic. 

Yppah
Tiny Pause

A mostly electronic record here from Yppah. Something of a kaleidoscope this one, with the producer sending a swirl of sample fragments, guitars and synth ambiences over driving, martial beats. Tiny Pause is his fourth full-length record, and is pressed to clear-with-green-splatter vinyl. Out from Counter.

Luke Haines
British Nuclear Bunkers

Luke Haines has a gruelling concept for for his latest LP. British Nuclear Bunkers is about just that: a post-nuclear-apocalypse world of underground bunkers. Conveyed, naturally enough, through the medium of analogue synths squeezed into a rock-like format. 10 tracks and a bonus 7” for purchasers of the vinyl. On Cherry Red.

Seahawks
Deep Haul

A bumper selection of music here: Seahawks present a great selection of material from artists including Prins Thomas, Pye Corner Audio and Captain Sunshine. The resultant Deep Haul is an excellent collection with a gorgeous sunny haze to it. On Ocean Moon, with the 500 edition LP accompanied by a twelve track bonus CD.

Dead Fader
Dosage EP

Dead Fader is the recording name of John Cohen. Most of his work has been for Robot Elephant Records, and he will be known for his collaboration with Sensational which spawned the Work It, No EP. He is now with the Touchin’ Bass label. Dosage EP eases you in before punching you in the chest and scrambling your senses with heavy bass and beats to match.

Jackie House
Stydive

Jackie House gives it all away with the name eh? Turns out they live up to the moniker though, with Stydive, a clear and present dancefloor danger with old school drum machine rhythm and trippily echoing vocals. On the B-side, Matrixxman tries his hand at a thud-tastic remix. 12” on Dark Entries spin-off label HNYTRX.

Dan Friel
Life

Dan Friel comes at things the right way, starting with a small, simple set-up and wringing all he can out of it. In his case, a Yamaha Portasound toy keyboard is at the core of everything, Friel overcranking it and using it to mimic a whole range of instruments. Life is a record of high-energy, lo-fi melodic dance songs: lots of fun! On Thrill Jockey.

Denzel + Huhn
Brom

Denzel + Huhn carefully create exciting digital soundfields for the pleasure of the listener. Brom is their first record in eight years, and the thought that has gone into it’s 14 tracks in that time is audible. These pieces crackle, skip and hum with a remarkably melodic sensibility. Released on CD by the Oktaf label.

Introverted Dancefloor
Introverted Dancefloor

Introverted Dancefloor is the name of the latest project from Bevan Smith, who has been keeping himself sonically busy under all sorts of monikers for years. This LP takes Smith’s introverted vocals to the dancefloor (see what I did there?), where his productions take off into body-moving crescendoes. Huge stuff on Carpark.

Grischa Lichtenberger
La Demeure; Il Y A Peril En La Demeure

Grischa Lichtenberger releases La Demeure: Il Y A Peril En La Demeure, a record of fucked-up beat tracks and unusually-structured electronic business. The press release even invokes Kafka, so it has to be having at least one listen right? Released as a CD on the aesthetically firm Raster Norton label.

Donato Dozzy
The Loud Silence

Donato Dozzy decided to make this record using nothing but a selection of mouth harps, which he has treated and layered into a bizarre landscape of noises. It’s an odd, but certainly impressive piece of work. The Loud Silence is part of a series that Further Records are releasing that feature only one instrument.

Aisha Orazbayeva & Tim Etchells
Sleeping Through

This EP is the first fruit of an intimate new collaboration between Aisha Orazbayeva and Tim Etchells, pushing violin and voice into an intense, sometimes uncomfortable space together. Sleeping Through is challengingly minimal but powerfully performed. Vinyl LP released in a limited edition on the Prah Recordings label.

MG
MG EP

Martin Gore of multi-million selling mega-band Depeche Mode began work on a new solo album, MG, after the band’s Delta Machine tour in 2013. MG was released in April 2015. Now we have MGEP, an EP containing remixes by Martin Stott, Virgil Enzinger and Gore, assisted by Depeche Mode cohort Christoffer Berg. The EP also contains two new non-LP tracks.

COMA
This Side Of Paradise

COMA’s new record straddles the fence between electronic music for the club and electronic music for the home. This Side Of Paradise, their second album, attaches loose clouds of songs to typically beautiful Kompakt semi-ambient minimal beats, all sounding pretty compelling. CD or double 10” vinyl set.
  • Genre(s):
  • Electronic / Electro / IDM / EBM

Rabit
Baptizm

Houston dude Rabit produces a really mighty set of tracks for this 12” on Tri Angle Records. Nigh-on Industrial percussion mixes with gun-shots and other sounds of rhythmic chaos on ‘Bloody Eye’, a brief but immense track that sets the tone for the rest of Baptizm. Grime instrumentals from beyond the UK? Damn right.

Tarcar
Mince Glace

Blackest Ever Black have spent 2014 moving away from electronic sad-sack tropes and this 12” vinyl from Tarcar is somewhere between the two points. A groovy little DIY electronics ramble with some sultry vocals, it’s not upbeat -- Nico’s The Marble Index is a good reference point -- but it’s more of an isolated, lonely dub kind of bleak. For real connoisseurs of despair and desperation.
  • Genre(s):
  • Electronic / Electro / IDM / EBM

Senking
Closing Ice

Another fine delivery from the Raster Noton roster. The new senking record closing ice ends a two year silence in style, with nine dark, grooving tracks. The bass is thick and the subject matter is weighty and personal, but the song forms come through relatively clearly. Serious, high quality work from senking.
  • Genre(s):
  • Electronic / Electro / IDM / EBM

Bruce Haack
Haackula

This reissue represents the first ever vinyl outing for Haackula, a cult favourite among electro enthusiasts. Bruce Haack originally made this record in 1978, but the music was thought too weird and dark to release. This release has the full original album, plus his 1982 smash tune ‘Party Machine’. On Telephone Explosion, 1000 copies.
