Becoming Real
Pure Apparition

This album is the debut full-length of Becoming Real, a Glasgow-based producer turning out simmeringly bass-loaded tracks that dabble in grime / post-grime.

Donald Fraser
Locomotion

Electronics that point to about a hundred different spots on a map and claim that they all mark the spot; that's the sound Donald Fraser musters up on the bombastic Locomotion, his new collection of skittering manoeuvres for Mordant Music. A remix of the piece comes from the label's tape loopy b...view item »

Gacha
Send Two Sunsets

Send Two Sunsets is no less than the first full length release of Gacha, a producer with a fondness for low-key semi-ambience.

Tyondai Braxton
HIVE1

Available on CD vinyl LP on Nonesuch. Former Battles frontman Tyondai Braxton is probably fed up of being described as such, after all he has many more “strings to his bow”.

Squarepusher
Damogen Furies

Expect the unexpectedly expected from this new work from nightmare-inducing sound weirdo Squarepusher.

Tangents Series #01: LiveGlasgow040414

Glaswegian underground electronic label Broken20’s Tangents Series has been set up to release collaborative live performances.

Craig Leon
Bach To Moog

Oh no it isn't! Oh yes it moogingly well is! It’s Johann Sebastian Bach set to moog synthesizer. Produced by Craig Leon, with the exception of strings every sound on the album is driven out of the bizarre and wonderful moog, which celebrates it’s 50th anniversary in 2015 and also the 10th anniversary...view item »

Howling
Sacred Ground

Sacred Ground is all about collaborations. Howling is the culmination of Ry X from The Acid and Frank Wiedemann from Ame and Innervisions. It’s released by Modeselektor’s Monkeytown label and Ninja Tune imprint Counter. If Thom Yorke had recorded for Kompakt it might have turned out as sweetly repetitive as ...view item »

Lapalux
Many Faces Out of Focus

Pictures are repressing this debut release from Essex producer Stuart Howard aka Lapalux, a time capsule from his formative days. While recent output has borderline trap tendencies, Many Faces Out of Focus lies within the ambient/'post-dubstep' scene of 2010-12, with downtempo beats and hazy synth textures galore. ...view item »

Sun Glitters
Scattered Into Light

Life is a glitch and Sun Glitters want to ride it all night long. Their new record, 'Scattered Into Light', betrays the same affection for fragmented electronic music that remains indelible and full of pop sensibility, with beats and synths that limp towards the finish line in true underdog spirit. Now they come with added vocals: Sara Cappai co...view item »

Paper Dollhouse
Aeonflower

Against a sober yet rich electronic soundscape, Paper Dollhouse’s vocals are not just cardboard cutouts. They stand out like young girls’ imaginations, the dollhouse being just a background. Aeonflower, the group’s second effort, focusses on dyanmic music, and finding the balance between ambient music ...view item »

The Soft Moon
Deeper

The reclusive tones of The Soft Moon betray its humble origins: the project was never meant to be heard. But private press doesn't remain private for long, in most cases, and Luis Vasquez soon shared his melancholic wasteland of cold synth and post-punk with the world. Deeper is what it says: another...view item »

Strategy
Seeds of Paradise

12” Vinyl LP on Idle Hands. Strategy is the moniker of Portland based producer Paul Dickow. With Seeds of Paradise he explores a sort of near future sci-fi dub, filled with radio transmission crackle, lush dronescapes and spaced out dub textures. Would fit nicely alongside some of your Loscil and ...view item »

Justin Velor
2013 Remixes

For me this is all about the Psychemagik mix, and extended treatment of Flameout designed with sun dappled times in mind. Its a proper balearic chugger, with nice uplifting vibes throughout an ideal tune to soundtrack a sunset, hell even a sunrise as you head on your way to further adventure after a night of hedonism. Epic. On the flip y...view item »

Biosphere & Deathprod
Stator

Biosphere, one of Touch’s big ambient players, shares an LP with Deathprod, currently of Supersilent and formerly of Motorpsycho. Interestingly for a split release, the artists alternate tracks, which juxtaposes their sounds together, each bringing out new angles from the ...view item »

Jam City
Dream A Garden

Dream A Garden is more than a piece of advice, it is also a description of the album itself: with airy vocals and dreamy synthesized accompaniments, it sounds like Jam City is dreaming a beautiful nocturnal garden packed with lights. Pretty and elusive, this follow-up to Classical Curves is hard to describe, but no...view item »

Blancmange
Semi Detached

Blancmange’s fifth album release ‘Semi-Detached’ is the first record from the British, eighties synth-poppers without the involvement of long term collaborative partner Stephen Luscombe. With it’s roots firmly planted in the sterling company of synth pioneers and hitmakers such as Soft Cell and Depeche Mode, ‘Semi-D...view item »

MGUN
Some Tracks

No nonsense rugged techno action from Detroit’s Manuel Gonzales. Beginning with the tough 4/4 stomper ‘Extort’. A brutal drum track with rough filtering that pounds away showing zero mercy for frazzled minds on the dancefloor. Then there's the stuttering muffled electro of Mean While’ with a delay affected vocoder vocal h...view item »

Doldrums
The Air Conditioned Nightmare

Second album by electropunkers The Doldrums. The Air Conditioned Nightmare takes its title from Henry Miller who, upon his return to the US after a decade away, found that it had become a vacuous, disconnected place. This idea is certainly represented in the dystopian sounds on the album, even if it does sound like it w...view item »

Skip&Die
Cosmic Serpents

Don’t be fooled by the garish, cringingly teenage art & design project style cover for Cosmic Serpents by Skip&Die because behind the cover, in those dusty grooves, are some rhythmical, tropical and dance-inducing tunes, inspired by the countries in which the album was written and recorded, includi...view item »

Groeni
Hewn

‘Hewn’ is a sophomore release from Wellington, New Zealand based solo act turned three piece Groeni, originally founded by producer/musician Alexander Green.

Powell
Sylvester Stallone / Smut

Big boy Powell delivers two new tracks ("Sylvester Stallone" and "Smut"), not for his own Diagonal Records, but for the more indie-ish XL. Perhaps signalling forthcoming crossover appeal? Let's hope so, because Powell’s tracks deserve a good-sized audience. On this 12”, Sylvester Stallone ...view item »

Tairiq & Garfield
Childhood Swing

The debut release from twin brothers Tairiq & Garfield is a big production seemingly always in flux. Children to an R&B group father and a rapping mother they’ve got quite the headstart. Childhood Swing is not unlike a slow motion Squarepusher at his most sci-fi. Out on 12” vinyl from Software Record...view item »

Akkord
HTH035

Reminiscent of Cex or Hrvatski dropping acid, HTH035 features time-warping beats, paranoid pads and an inexplicable catchiness to it all. Akkord is here remixed by Fis and OG Regis, the first leaning more towards the psychedelic electronica, the latter responsible for a slowed and disto...view item »

Gazelle Twin
Unflesh

Uncompromisingly DIY, exclusively punk and very terrifying, Gazelle Twin has of course named her new record 'Unflesh'. More menacing than ever on her new record, adding an industrial vibe to her electronic palette, Gazelle Twin deliberately restrained her sound for the record in order to make something more direct and lo-fi in aesthetic....view item »

Hot Sugar
God's Hand

Floating along the abstract plane with Hot Sugar. God's Hand is the lengthily awaited debut full length from the esoteric producer.

Ryan Teague
Last Known Position

A single track from Ryan Teague’s last album is expanded and extended into an evolved form of the original on this EP release on Village Green. Minimalism as played by synthesisers. Furthermore, he has enlisted remixers to try their hand at the track: Plaid, Errors, and The Field...view item »

18+
Dry

Single the second from 18+’s Trust album. Dry is a slinky beast, trapped up percussion production poured over a sexy core. 18+ turns out to be an appropriate name for the duo: this is suggestive stuff, highly stylised and monochrome. Pretty compelling aesthetic all round. This 7” si...view item »

Vessels
Elliptic EP

Wahey Vessels are back! I hear you cry. After four years in the Leeds wilderness they’ve returned like Dylan in electric form. Evoking the same widescreen majesty for which they became known the Elliptic EP is as euphoric as they ever were. The B side is a cover of Modeselektor’s Blue Clouds. Out on 12&rdquo...view item »

Espectrostatic
Escape From Witchtropolis

Alex Cuervo could start a no frills garage punk outfit as quickly as you could put two pieces of bread in a toaster, but his Espectrostatic project has taken a lot more tinkering and thinking through. Here, he takes his love of synth music and tries to get in with the crew, hoping his electronic, Kraut-influenced drones will be good enough to ge...view item »

Hiiragi Fukuda
Seacide

Two sides of cool improvised jams from Hiiragi Fukuda, one with guitar and one with a monophonic synth. A fun and playful sound, grabbed with whatever equipment was to hand, that also digs deep into spacey vibes. Seacide was first sighted on a limited cassette, so this proper vinyl / CD release on Trouble In Mind is mos...view item »

Tsembla
Terror & Healing

Marja Johansson of Kemiallset Ystävät creates a record of abstracted and hard-wired beauty, bringing together a dense palate of sounds around motifs that circle inwards and then outwards, samples that get cut and fucked up, and a lot of electronic configuration. If "Animal Negatives...view item »

Ricardo Donoso
Deterrence

Available on CD or 180 gram 12” vinyl. Brazil born, Boston based composer Ricardo Donoso’s dark ambient debut Deterrence as released on extremely limited (80 copies only!) cassette in 2010. Belonging somewhere between Deaf Center and Kreng it’s getting a much needed wi...view item »

Millimetrik
Lonely Lights

This album was inspired by one of the greatest ever scenarios in which to listen to music: driving around a large sparkling city at night. Lonely Lights by Millimetrik is appropriately synth-driven, with metronomic drums driving the sound always forwards. Very cinematic: lonely, as the title declares, but also beautiful...view item »

Flower Man
Inversion Fortuite

I don't know what the hell this record is supposed to be but on one side someone's painted a load of Aramaic style characters in red paint which looks cooler than a lot of the thoroughly useless etchings I've seen on some records of late. The music is fucking odd to be honest. Made by a guy fr...view item »

Ricardo Donoso
Sarava Exu

Available on 180 gram 12” vinyl LP with special 3D print in various colors with download code included, as well as CD digipak. Brazilian composer Ricardo Donoso who currently lives in Boston draws on his disparate compositional projects of Scuba Death and Ehnahre to create these violently ...view item »

Feedle
The Evening Wore On

Oh My God! This better be good. This guy has covered my all-time favourite Silver Jews song - "Trains Across the Sea"! If yer unfamiliar with Graham Clarke, he is an ex-member of 65daysofstatic who rejoices in making progressive bedroom beats & deliriously effervescent broken pop music. His last two albums have done really well for us so her...view item »

Jan St. Werner
Miscontinuum Album (Fiepblatter Catalogue #3)

He's one of the maestros for canonical IDM busters Mouse On Mars and a recording artist in his own right, and now Jan St. Werner has a new strand of minor electronic innovations on offer. Miscontinuum Album is an insular work of goth-influenced darkness, which use...view item »

Beat Spacek
Modern Streets

Ninja Tune gift us with another project from musical polymath Steve Spacek, who's out and about here under the slight and rather half-assed alias Beat Spacek.

Singles Club EP

Not quite what you might expect, this is not a club for the lonely at heart. It is part of the Singles Club, where ten artists created ten fancy singles. Here’s 4 highlights, ranging from early morning minimal house to melancholic ambient or existential meta-jungle… Whatever you want it to be. Unfortunately, no invi...view item »

Ten And Tracer
Friendless Now

The last CD on Nomadic Kids for the time being (think there's been 5 in 5 weeks if my memory serves me correctly) is by Jonathan Canupp aka Ten and Tracer who've been releasing stuff for 10 years.  Some of his past releases have trod along a more beaty path and that is what the label asked for, but what they got was a more chilled mellow am...view item »

Lee Bannon
Never/Mind/The/Darkness/of/it..

Lee Bannon isn't satisfied hinting at his talents away from hip-hop production -- he's demanding the centre stage, taking the mic from us and letting us know what he can do when left to his own devices. 'Never/mind/the/darkness/of/it' is the follow-up to 'Caligula Theme Music 2. 7. 5.' and blends the same eclectic mix of trap, ambient and E...view item »

Oorutaichi
Drifting My Folklore

Well worth reading the press release for this one: two paragraphs and no sense whatsoever of what Drifting My Folklore might sound like. I highly approve of this, but should probably tell you a bit about the sound. It is difficult to be fair… Scrambling energetic electronic weirdo-pop sounds about right. Really good fun!...view item »

Ingram Marshall
Fog Tropes / Gradual Requiem

I haven't encountered the work of Ingram Marshall before but this label's last reissue was Arthur Russell so they have my attention here. On this LP is a shortish piece called 'Fog Tropes' and five longer pieces which make up the lengthy Gradual Requiem suite. 'Fog Tropes' combines field recorded foghorns a...view item »

Lee Bannon
Main / Flex

A producer for everyone's favourite nostalgia rapper, Joey Bada$$ (it's 1999 forever in our hearts!), Lee Bannon is one of the West Coast's most treasured instrumental artists. On 'Main / Flex' he gets to do his own thing, mixing in drum 'n' bass along with EDM into a sound that's totally his own, with a little help from his friends -- of c...view item »

Indian Weapons
Labyrinth

This week we got a bunch of cassettes on the Chemical Tapes label which seems like an interesting one to me! Tapes from Maps & Diagrams & Machinefabriek as well as Indian Weapons which is the one I'd picked up for two reasons. One, I like the name and two I've not heard 'em before. You never know if that amazing thing you've been waiting...view item »

Various
Work

In 2013, electronic composer Nicolas Jaar started a subscription-based record label called Other People. This collection, titled 'Work' -- as if Jaar's managed to get the label working at a steady pace -- offers up what is mostly new material from artists on the label's roster, though there are of course a few remixes scattered about. Tunes...view item »

Inch Time
Icicles & Snowflakes

That Inch Time CD that came out on Static Caravan was dead good. I don't know if anyone remembers it but it was a winner. Consequently the new 7" single (icicles & Snowflakes) came to me with some anticipation. It's absolutely lovely clicky melodic electronica of the highest order. There's more jungle sounds in there (l...view item »

Diagrams

Here Static Caravan are treating us to a pair of remixes of the track 'Antelope' from the debut Diagrams mini-LP (Sam Genders from Tuung's new outfit for those late to the party), all pressed into see-through purple vinyl in an edition of 300.

Paume
Transalpine EP

The third in the Melodic housebag range, follwing Howes and Georges Vert.  The idea of humanising the machine is a relationship that has forever run down the spine of electronic music. From the restrained sexuality of Donna Summer & Giorgio Moroder through to the tectonic soul sampling grooves out of Detroit, Paume now makes up ...view item »

Schneider Kacirek
Shadow Documents

African rhythms make their way into a dark electronic world in Shadow Documents. Following the release of two albums of African field recordings, Stefan Schneider and Sven Kacirek take this experience to new depths supplanting these complex styles into a Western electronic template.

Frank Bretschneider
Sinn + Form

Beepbeepboopbeepboop beepbeep.

Machinone
Tokyo

There’s a certain ‘Flau’ sound isn’t there? The Japanese label seem adept at finding unusual examples of their particular brand of micro-music that sounds somehow Japanese even though its difficult to say why or how. Even when they veer off genre there is something distinctive linking it together. Tohoku’s M...view item »

Sinner DC
The Ambient Mixes

A longform collection of re-imaginings from 2012’s Future That Never Happened LP, The Ambient Mixes is an 80-minute minimalist trip.

Brian Eno

As with all Eno's 'Music For...’ series there'll be those that sneer with derision at the supposed nothingness and futility of ambient because they think all music should be thick with meaning and purpose and drive. They forget to consider that this genre...view item »

Simian Mobile Disco
Whorl

Odd how Simian Mobile disco emerged out of the now forgotten leftfield rock band Simian but you can't really argue with the enormous success they've had since with loads of sales all over the world and curly haired James Ford becoming a sought after producer of note. Incredibly on this album they swapped laptops for one synth and sequencer each ...view item »

Ben Frost
V A R I A N T

'V A R I A N T' continues Ben Frost's love of well-spaced letters and phenomenal electronic subversion, as he follows-up 'A U R O R A' with some next level remixes from contemporaries like the famed producer and lover of FIFA Evian Christ, as well as Dutch E Germ, Kangding Ray and HTRK. More electronic aggressions and introspection from Frost --...view item »

Phil Julian

Someone let abstract-electronics-expert Phil Julian into the EMS (Elektronmusikstudion) studio in Stockholm! I can only dream of the delicious range of sound machines one might find in a proper electroacoustic music studio like that… This LP on Harbinger Sound is the result of two weeks in residence at the EMS, and it sou...view item »

Aphex Twin
I Care Because You Do

Arguably one of Aphex Twin’s greatest albums, I Care Because You Do is the last of his analogue era. You get some technoish numbers, the dog-bothering banger ‘Ventolin (Video Version)’ and ‘Alberto Balsam’, which samples a chair scrape and some metal pipes to remarkably emotionally resonant...view item »

Squarepusher
Shobaleader One : d' Demonstrator

I've a massive problem with this new Squarepusher album. If it was by the latest fashionista haircut clan i'd feel like throwing fresh dogturds at them (perhaps a little petulant, irrational & brutal...I know). Yet Jenkinson & his mates seem to have wormed their way into my soul & are sitting in there on oriental rugs, smoking dubiou...view item »

Bibio
Silver Wilkinson

Over the course of his last few excellent LPs West Midlands resident Steven Wilkinson has pretty much come up with his own signature sound, one can now utter that something sounds Bibio-esque such are his achievements. He produces a kind of faded polaroid postcard autumnal pop which owes as much to ...view item »

Flying Lotus
Until The Quiet Comes

You know  - so many things go on these days that I somehow missed Flying Lotus’s last opus ‘Cosmogramma’. Just never got round to it. Shocking isn’t it? A man of my regard within the community. Anyway I will make up for lost time by boldly proclaiming this new on...view item »

Future Brown
Future Brown

Hyper-real club mutations from super-group Future Brown. Drawing from regional rap, grime, gamelan and everything in between, it feels strange calling these bizarre and glossily autotuned bangers experimental, but this is bold stuff. Postmodern party music with pan-global contributions ranging from Chicago’s Tink to London...view item »

Actress
Ghettoville

Perhaps Darren Cunningham should have reserved the title of his previous album (R.I.P) for his latest sprawling opus ‘Ghettoville’. The word on the streets of the information superhighway is that this is the final album from Actress. Whether that is in fact true, and whether it is just that particular ...view item »

Throwing Snow
Avarice

A gooey tart of electronics and acoustics from Throwing Snow. There is a lot to be said for Avarice; loads of drones and violins set the mood, whilst some sort of Oud shit and a grumpy sub-fart plow along the bottom of this slow-mo trip-hopper. Don't worry, they actually sound great together. Out on 12" vinyl from Hound...view item »

Diplo
F10RIDA

Dance dad Diplo has been doing his own thing for a decade now and 'F10RIDA' nods at the time lapse sheepishly, offering a bunch of new tracks that celebrate the long, strange trip he's had in being a solo artist. It's a tribute to Florida, his old stomping ground, where a lot of his musical magic began....view item »
