Tallesen
Stills Lit Through

'Stills Lit Through' is audio-visual artist Tallesen's first significant collection of music, and brings together the sounds of downtrodden IDM with a tribute to the artist's homely natural environment in New York. The project attempts to document the intense and inseparable connection shared between music and those places, events and people we experience it through.

Tlaotlon / Katie Gately
Split Series #23

These two rising artists share their playful and cerebral experiments with all on a dynamic 12" split for FatCat -- where pop songs go to meet an untimely end. Katie Gately meshes together found sounds with melodic precision, calling to mind the chilling ambience and resounding beauty of Julia Holter's 'Loud City Song'. Meanwhile, Tlaotlon offers bombastic IDM that makes you believe without exposition.

18+
Trust

18+ return from mixtape hell with a whole lot of fresh ideas and their debut record, 'Trust'. The duo spend most of the record's runtime breathing and hyperventilating over delicate and sensual electro-pop tunes, leaving the textures and eclectic amples sparse and intimate, their vocals rising and falling against solid ground. Not for the faint -- or repressed -- of heart.

Pop Ambient 2015

The latest in the hopefully never ending series of Pop Ambient compilations from the good people at Kompakt. Does what it says on the tin really but each one is unique and with a different feel or flow. This one features new and exclusive stuff from Thore Pfeiffer, Dirk Leyers, Gregor Schwellenbach,  Leandro Fresco, Max Würden, Ulf Lohmann and the prolific Bvdub. 

Gum Takes Tooth
Mirrors Fold

London's ritualistic dance-noise duo Gum Takes Tooth are back in business with a follow-up to their coruscating debut 'Silent Cenotaph'. This time they're taking a slight step back from the gnarly metallic madness of the debut for some trippy rhythmic explorations full of bugged out cosmic synths, crunching industrial-dub-doom noise and bustling tribal drums.

Jon Hopkins
Asleep Versions

'Asleep Versions' is electronic producer Jon Hopkins' most recent work, a composition fashioned after 'Immunity' if it were to happen in a dreamlike state where none of the record's original aggression could get in. It was originally conceived as one long-form composition, but has been filtered into four suites that take cues from one another.

Various
Next Life

This latest compilation on Hyperdub concentrates on showcasing Chicago's footwork scene carrrying on from where the great DJ Rashad left off. Full to the brim of manic samples and energetic rhythms. 20 all new tracks from RP Boo, Traxman, DJ Spinn, Gantman, Manny DJ Earl, Taye, Boylan, Phil, Taso, Sirr Tmoand DJ Rashad himself. A great document of a burgeoning scene. 

Emerald Web
Whispered Visions

New Age power couple Kat Epple and Bob Stohl named themselves Emerald Web because it sounded cooler than their earth names, and made music on synthesizers to sooth and startle; synth was the centrepiece, but the duo were interested in piling organic instrumentation onto their electronic foundations. 'Whispered Visions' took over three decades to make it onto vinyl, but rest assured, the cosmic vibes remain intact. 

Clark
Clark

Here is the new album by Clark (aka Chris Clark). It is entitled Clark after his name. He's made some good records so far and is one of those electronic pioneers who sits just under the radar. This could elevate him further into the public's conciousness with its billowing post rave techno and textural experimentation. Never afraid to throw a piano piece in there or something wholly unusual amidst the electronic constructions. If it is as good as his last album 'Iradelphic' I'll be happy.

Air Texture Volume IV – Selected By Steve Hauschildt and BNJMN

Another release in the Air Texture series, with the curation duties being performed by Steve Hauschildt and BNJMN. Air Texture IV - Selected By Steve Hauschildt and BNJMN is a collection of acoustic and electronic ambient works, drifting from lucid floating synths to gloomy dank drones. Generously spatial offerings from all involved. Out on Air Texture on CD.

Soft as Snow
Glass Body Remixed

Houndstooth makes way for their old friends Soft as Snow, a duo whose name doesn't quite fit with the next-generation, sci-fi sounds they bring to their electro-pop. 'Glass Body Remixed' takes one of their prime cuts and reroutes it twice; first, Lucy of Stroboscopic Artefacts unleashes it onto the floor, and then Factory Floor's Gabe Gurnsey extends it and sustains it into a gruesome acid jam, 'til there's nothing left. 

Arca
Xen

Alejandro Ghersi, otherwise known as Arca, is a 24-year-old Venezuelan producer. Ghersi has worked on Kanye West's album 'Yeezus', as well as with up-and-coming Mercury nominees FKA Twigs. This is being hailed as the Brooklyn-based producer's debut solo album but it is, in fact, just his first album as Arca. Initial copies available with a bonus 10" (this has now sold out!)

Application
System Fork

Application are Martin & Richard Dust (The Black Dog). System Fork was designed around the principle of Itamae. Every detail was described and thought about before any work in the studio was done. This process took two years before a set of rules and principles were fully realised for the creative process in the studio.  Working with Human & Shaun Bloodworth, Application also applied more design aesthetics to artwork, videos & photographs which will become the prototypes to a live show with video.

Suicideyear
Remembrance

Remembrance is the Software Recording Co. debut from Baton Rouge's Suicideyear (born James Prudhomme). Written and produced between Florida and Louisiana during the summer and fall of 2013, Remembrance recalls those southern U.S. landscapes and Prudhomme’s experiences across eight songs equally intimate, intoxicating and mercurial. Prudhomme wrote Remembrance while reflecting on themes of love and loss against the backdrop of the deep American south he calls home. James’ experiences of reflection and resolution led to the vivid, emotionally charged production that makes up Remembrance. Alive with an idiosyncratic sense of melodic space, his repertoire eschews a topical palette for a personal aesthetic that offers a visceral love letter to abstraction. Prudhomme references both forms we know to exist and speculates on how they can be newly realized. Tracks: 1. I Don't Care About Death Because I Smoke2. Daniel3. Caroline4. Hope Building A5. Savior6. U S7. Remembrance8. When You Sleep

Cooly G
Wait ‘Til Night

'Wait 'Til Night' is the follow-up to dubstep artist Cooly G's debut record, 'Playin' Me'. In a surprising turn of events, the record sees Cooly G take on an R&B influence, diminishing the eerie, twilit club vibe of her first record and her DJ sets (as evidenced by the dancefloor-ready dubstep she threw in to her Boiler Room set). More of the usual subversion from Hyperdub.

Boards of Canada
Hi Scores

We’re always here for Boards Of Canada, and Hi Scores is a release that really shows off why that is. As only the duo’s second release, this 1996 number dates from when people where only just waking up to the BOC sound, and yet it contains such infinite wonders as ‘Turquoise Hexagon Sun’ and the deeply melancholy ‘Everything You Do Is A Balloon’. 2014 reissue edition.

2562
The New Today

2562's first record in two years, The New Today is some no nonsense Dutch booty shaker. Filling his boots with techno, house, electro and other euro junk. There something for everyone here - trippy synths, endlessly endless drum machines and wacky production. Out on vinyl and CD on his own label When In Doubt. It is well intense.

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 course, you've gotta invite some people to this party, so members of RatKing and Antrhax come along for the ride.

A Winged Victory For The Sullen
Atomos

Adam Wiltzie and Dustin O’Halloran return with their second studio album inspired by contemporary dance and new instrumentation. After releasing a first glimpse in the form of the ‘Atomos VII’ EP earlier this year, A Winged Victory For The Sullen finally reveal their second full-length album entitled ‘Atomos’, which besides familiar piano, string and drone sounds also sees the duo introduce flurries of electronics, harp and modular synthesisers. IN THEIR OWN WORDS: “As a wise man once said, one who procrastinates their own choosing will inevitably have their choice served to them by circumstance. We had virtually no time for second guessing ourselves. That being said, we tried to balance the discordance between being creative, and fulfilling our duties for a commissioned soundtrack with a very strict deadline, and all the while staying true to our collective melancholy.” – Adam Bryanbaum Wiltzie “We never imagined 2013 would be such an explosively creative year. The first record took us two years from start to finish, but in the micro span of time over last summer we were able to change the formula for the way we write, record, liberating.” – Dustin O'Halloran

Boothroyd
Idle Hours

Boothroyd's first name is Peter and he's a producer of electronic music out of Manchester. 'Idle Hours' is his first EP, and it's being released via Tri Angle. The record shows off Boothroyd's interest in making music that is cinematic in scope but fragmented and damaged in practice, recorded with the most primitive means possible to fit with his ideology of musical fracture.

Second Storey
Double Divide

Second Storey's heady club music combines a wealth of electronic genre into one sound, taking on the reflective nature of IDM and injecting it with techno workouts. 'Double Divide', his new record for Houndstooth, dedicates itself to pounding beats you're likely to hear on the dancefloor, but it's also sprinkled with meditative washes of sound  that give it an altogether more ambient feel. As ever, Second Storey is a project that makes your body move, your heart feel and your mind tinker.

DIVAN
BETRAYAL (1​/​09​-​1​/​14)

Divan is the project of techno head Michael DeMaio who is also known for his work as Womb and Twin Facility. ‘Betrayal’ is the debut release from Divan and promises to be a more sophisticated affair that combines muscular, jagged techno rhythms, 808 grooves and ambient, hazy drones. Released on printed cassette and limited to just 50 copies, this guy is obviously one to watch, so pick one up quick!

Daedelus
The Light Brigade

Daedelus makes joyous IDM informed by a myriad genres: be it jazz, downtempo, instrumental hip hop, he's swimming in it. This makes him a pretty ideal candidate for Brainfeeder, the spontaneous hybrid-lover record label fronted by Flying Lotus. On this record, Daedelus takes a serious turn, the record attempting to document the scenes of the Crimean War. For an artist who's graced Ninja Tune and Anticon with his presence, it's a dark turn.

SBTRKT
Wonder Where We Land

Electronic musician and conjurer of dubstep/future garage tricks Aaron Jerome returns for 'Wonder Where We Land', his second full-length record as SBTRKT. As per his self-titled debut, the record is a gleefully collaborative affair, featuring lots and lots of Sampha, as ever, along with old friend Jessie Ware. There's also a track with Ezra Koenig of Vampire Weekend -- seriously, though -- and is that A$AP Ferg on the final track?

Hudson Mohawke
Chimes

"Chimes" is one of producer Hudson Mohawke's most ubiquitous cuts, and it fronts this EP of the same name. It's the follow-up to HudMo's last EP in 2011, Satin Panthers, and comes after the break-up of his act TNGHT, as well as his success working with Kanye West on 'Yeezus'. After eons of collaboration, 'Chimes' thrusts HudMo back into the limelight.

Pearl River Sound
Smallchamber Music

Pearl River Sound is the alias of Roberto Semeraro, who last released a record -- his very first, in fact -- in 2012. This record takes on a more chilled out and warped vision -- chief among Semeraro's influences are early electronica and IDM, a la Boards of Canada. On 'Smallchamber Music', the Roland synth sparkles and the drums fade into the back of your mind, making a synthetic and yet highly natural landscape that fans of easy-going, early-morning electronica will adore.
  • Genre(s):

Vessel
Punish, Honey

A producer working tirelessly for Bristol's Young Echo group, Vessel is following up his first solo record of dark electronica with 'Punish, Honey'. Not interested in repeating himself, Vessel has turned to industrial and acoustic sounds for his second record, deigning to create something heavier and rawer and equally confrontational.

The Juan Maclean
In A Dream

The Juan Maclean have been around some time now and always on DFA records.  They've been around long enough to see various trends such as  electroclash, disco-punk, electro-disco come and go yet are still at it doing their own thing. There are certainly house and techno influences in this, lots of Moroder style squiggly synths and Neu-ish drum patterns. There are some crazily rock guitars attached which I'll have to get back to you about and cold post punk female vocals. Its kind of stadium disco of sorts full of vintage sunths and kraut pulses with the classic interplay you find on all the great disco records.

Ueno Masaaki
Ununseptium / Vortices

Japanese newcomer Ueno Masaaki drops his debut EP on the notorious Raster Noton and, judging by the youtube preview for opener 'vortex state', it's going to be intense. Expect semi-plausible rhythms, ear-fracturing machinedrums, and trance-inducing repetitions that you may not come back from. Apparently involved in multiple musical styles and projects, this bloke is one to watch.

Marconi Union
Weightless

All kinds of downbeat, be it conjured through ambient sounds, post-rock soundscaping or IDM-leaning electronica, Marconi Union make a sound that aims to be modest and simplistic -- the tracklist for 'Weightless' attests to that, comprising of a six-part suite with no concepts and no fuss. This time, the group try to keep it really minimalist, occasionally bringing rhythm in other what is ultimately a long ambient slog. With 'Weightless, Marconi Union continue to establish their exceedingly chill vibes. 

Different Fountains
Shrimp That Sleeps

Brussels-based electronic duo Different Fountains have, for a few years now, been central proponents of Brussels’ modern electronic music scene. ‘Shrimp That Sleeps’ is their first full-length LP following the release of a 7” and 12” single on their own label, Different Fountains Editions. Featuring nine tracks on vinyl and ten on CD, 'Shrimp That Sleeps' is as engaging as it is absorbing, and touches upon subtle house music, post-rock, ambient and atmospheric pop.

Bruce Haack
Electric Lucifer : Song Book II

The sequel to his now-revered 1970 LP Electric Lucifer, Electric Lucifer: Song Book II first arrived in 1979 but hasn't been very available on western shores since then. Telephone Explosion, a label from Haack's native land, is rectifying that dilemma, having announced a nice new pressing of that Electric Lucifer: Song Book II. The record treads similar sonic ground to its predecessor, but Haack had clearly processed the music of the '70s when he made it, filling this sequel with some deep funk, prog, sound collage, and jazz fusion tidbits.

Call Super
Suzi Ecto

Call Super is Joe Seaton, a Berlin-based house and techno newbie about to release his anticipated debut record 'Suzi Ecto' for Houndstooth Records, an in-house of Fabric (pretty sure we're all familiar with that one, right?) where his EPs have been appearing. Seaton and Houndstooth have warned that 'Suzi Ecto' is gonna be both blissed-out and totally terrifying. Sounds about right.

The Field
Cupid's Head

There's absolutely no doubting that Axel Willner likes loops and is very good at making them. His debut as the Field Here We Go Sublime is one of the best dance albums of the last 20 years but fourth album Cupid's Head is no slouch either. It benefits from being recorded solo  - just like his debut - and results in a kind of soft-hazed techno that goes wandering through the back roads of ambient heaven. Glorious stuff. 

Zed (aka Bernard Szajner)
Visions Of Dune

Another rare synth classic for you all lovingly reissued by very careful people. This time its from a concept album based around Frank Herbert's 'Duner' by French electronic pioneer Bernard Szajner. The key words are sci-fi drones and otherworldly melodies drifting about creating an immersive listen. Rashad Becker remastered it in Berlin and there are two bonus tracks which feature on the CD or on the download code with the album.

Heart Kill Giant
Diamond Concubine

Yaaawwwwwwnn. Had a late one last night. Phone chat went on for hours and now this is on. It starts up nice and dubby bit like a more realized Pole, as if he decided to try writing songs rather than blips. All slow-burning and nice. Vocals come in, its soporific but nice. Been played on the wireless a lot according to the press release, do not listen whilst operating machinery. A heavier electronic edge, it says, than before. Cinematic, dubby electronica with vocals by a tired guy.

Rudiger Lorenz
Invisible Voices

Rüdiger Lorenz was a part-time producer of New Age music, and 'Invisible Voices', initially released in 1983, shows that he could've gone full-time in a fairer world. Lorenz made lush and overstuffed works, and 'Invisible Voices' is no exception, taking different elements of minimal synth and electronic work and maximising them.

High Lucia is the multi-directional ambient project of Pále, being released on Lex. 'Wash' is comprised of soundscapes of varying emotive quality, simple basslines and small vocal contributions from Joshua Idehen and Shanaz Dorsett, as well as percussion and synth from Pále. The result sounds like a set of productions that will be eaten up by those who love to listen to original Friendzone and Clams Casino tapes.   Tracks: Park Vista Dark Ages Riding Fine, Twenty Five Afar Dull Reverie Opal/Forever ft.

Kontakte

Shoegazers Kontakte come out of the woodwork for 'These Machines', their new eight track mini-record that covers two years of artistic processes. It's the follow-up to their recent 'Fear of Music' EP and finds them on their very own record label for the first time, which they have ambitiously -- and with lots of post-rock hand gestures -- titled The Collapse Of Everything.

Paul Baran
The Other

Paul Baran's brand of politically charged electro-acoustic is on full display with 'The Other', his new record for Fang Bomb. Baran brings together white noise, muffled rhythms and eerie vocal samples together into a peculiar type of avant-garde you could just about dance to. It's terrifying experimental work -- but there are beats, too. 

Cluster
One Hour

This was originally released in 1994 by the legendary electronic duo who consisted of Dieter Moebius & Hans-Joachim Roedelius following an earlier comeback album 'Apropros Cluster'. This album condenses essential passages from jams into 60 minutes. Just imagine how long it was originally? What results is an oddball take on impressionistic electronica. The production is as clear as a bell, the compositions themselves are eerie and disconcerting.   

Harald Grosskopf
Oceanheart

Legendary electronic guy Grosskopf (large head in German) made the switch from drummer in rock bands to electronic music specialist very early doors before the end of the '70's. This was his second solo effort, neither this nor his debut 'Synthesist' sold well at the time but have since been picked up by a younger generation, fascinated by the pulsing electronics and live drumming. Will appeal to those into the kraut rock travellers and 70's kosmische music.

EXTNDDNTWRK
Just Tracks

Long before the man with the fixed ‘fuck you’ stare, can of beer, e-cigarette and laptop found a home as one half of Sleaford Mods, Andrew Fearn was making music at home comprising samples, loops, frazzled electronic textures, deep bass rumbles, mutated beats, punk snarl, post-dancefloor meltdown mayhem and all manner of other abstract and disparate sounds. Rammed home by the same DIY sensibility that drives Sleaford Mods, Andrew’s (mostly) solo works are where he cuts his teeth on new ideas, fresh sounds and music that sways heavily between that of a chemical-soaked film soundtrack and an obvious passion for all things that filter in from those less obvious edges most people prefer to keep at bay. Just Tracks collects the latest album of the same name alongside a bonus disc which delves into his back catalogue (otherwise to be found residing on Bandcamp and various other spots over the ‘net). It, perhaps as suggested, merely hints at the little sonic dust-storms Andrew kicks up at every available free moment he gets (presumably over rugged and much abused equipment stained by coffee and with overflowing ashtray nearby…).

Three Legged Race
Rope Commercial Vol. 1

Prepare yourself for Three Legged Race aka Robert Beatty. Rope Commercial Vol. 1 is the first in its series from the musician, producer and artists. This record is full of pretty dense material, with Beatty exploring multiple textures, sounds and ideas. It's pretty experimental and the angular and jagged dissonance has a rather avant-garde flavour. Out on 12" vinyl from Underwater Peoples.

FaltyDL
In The Wild

Norman's favourite spacebarphobe FaltyDL follows up last year's 'Hardcourage' with a second album for Ninja Tune (and fourth overall), 'Into The Wild'. You can no doubt expect all his signature hesitant synthscapes and woozy drift-hop warmth on his most honest and heartfelt release to date. He even wrote a poem about it.

Roedelius
Flieg Vogel Fliege

Hans-Joachim Roedelius: born 1934; first releases in 1969 with Kluster (with Dieter Moebius and Konrad Schnitzler). Active ever since as a solo artist and in various collaborations (with Moebius in Cluster, with Moebius and Michael Rother in Harmonia, with Brian Eno, to name just a few). One of the most prolific musicians of the German avant-garde and a key figure in the birth of Krautrock, synthesizer pop and ambient music. 'Flieg Vogel fliege' (Fly bird fly) is the fifth instalment of the 'Selfportrait' series, with musical sketches and ideas recorded by Roedelius between the years of 1973 and 1979 on a Revox tape machine in his living room. In contrast to the previous self-portraits, which he left untouched, Roedelius revised these recordings and embellished them with further tracks. Originally released 1982 on Sky 078. Liner notes by Asmus Tietchens.

Richard H. Kirk
The Many Dimensions Of

A profound sense of unease from Richard H. Kirk. The Many Dimensions Of is Richards reflections and pondering on the big happenings in the 21st century. He been going for over four decades, dabbling in various bands and solo electronic adventures under various guises. On this one he blends synths and electronics with acoustic instruments and news reports to realize his dystopian vision. Out on CD from Die Stadt.

Optimo Music veer away from their usual 12" roster with this full-length LP from Felizol & The Boy. A collection of recordings made over three years, the theme is cannibalism and the feel, unsurprisingly given that Yiannis Veslemes and Alexandros Voulgaris are film directors, is cinematic - with plenty of nods to Stanley Kubrick and John Carpenter throughout.

Jim-E Stack
Tell Me I Belong

Born and raised in the culturally rich environs of San Francisco, the now Brooklyn-based artist born James Harmon Stack cut his musical teeth as a jazz drummer, but it wasn't until he entered the world of solo production at the age of 16 that he found the freedom necessary to write and record how he wanted. Following time spent in New Orleans, James moved to New York in summer of 2012, and started the slow process of sketching, refining, and developing the diverse tracks that would make up his captivating LP. In every corner of Tell Me I Belong, you can hear an artist who equally reveres classic jazz musicians like John Coltrane and McCoy Tyner, experimental pioneers like Steve Reich, Detroit techno greats Omar-S and Robert Hood, and contemporary boundary pushers Arca, Oneohtrix Point Never, and Actress.

Land Observations
The Grand Tour

The album was recorded on the edge of the Bavarian Alps on just one electric 6-string guitar - exploring the potential of the instrument in relation to layers, rhythm, melody and timbre. The recording process utilised a selection of vintage amplifiers and studio equipment, intentionally enjoying the warmth of analogue tape for assisting to create immersive pastoral motorik.

Heisenberg
Ripatti06

Frequent collaborators Sasu Ripatti, AKA Vladislav Delay, and Max Loderbauer become Heisenberg. Ripatti was intended as a label to release various unhinged studio experiments but these tracks are murkier, faster and, if I’m being cruel, much more fun than their recent solo work. It’s the kind of free-form techno only made by people in complete control of their techniques. Vinyl 12” limited to 350 copies.

You know what these two are like: they really love stars. King Crimson frontman Robert Fripp and ambient music saint Brian Eno released their collaborative effort 'Evening Star' back in 1975, a tranquil soundscape that helped popularise drone way back when. It took them thirty years to make another record together, but 'The Equatorial Stars' was the result, another quietly distilled foray into ambient.

Moebius / Story / Leidecker
Snowghost Pieces

Many brightly shining planets orbit the twin central star of Cluster (Hans-Joachim Roedelius and Dieter Moebius). To be clear: as soloists Roedelius and Moebius have long since worked with all kinds of musicians whose congenial contributions add even more colour to the polychromatic Cluster world. Yet no matter how distinctly their guests creativity is expressed, Cluster's character is consistently audible. 'Snowghost Pieces' very much fits the pattern: Tim Story, a distinguished electronic musician who had previous experience of working with Roedelius (the Lunz project, for example) and Jon Leidecker (Negativland, People Like Us), one of America's leading sonic pioneers using his Wobbly pseudonym, recorded an album of extraordinary complexity together with Moebius.

East India Youth
Total Strife Forever

Seemingly sponsored entirely by the Quietus on release, Total Strife Forever was the debut album from William Doyle under the moniker East India Youth. Much of the hype was justified on an album which blended Animal Collective-like mayhem through to ambient passages and full on thumping techno. Stolen have now re-issued on 2LP/2CD whilst Doyle continues to work slowly now under his own name.   

Sylvan Esso
Sylvan Esso

The beats sounds like rusty toy car’ bells making music when they were nostalgic for their time in the countryside. And then the vocalist sounds like she grew up in a big house, and spent her life singing about what the world looked like, and had these elaborate dreams and fantasies about an outside world she’d never seen, and then one day she found the toy car's bells and their music. And that is Sylvan Esso.

Cabaret Voltaire
#7885 (Electropunk to Technopop 1978 – 1985)

Compiled by sole remaining member Richard H. Kirk, '#7885 (Electropunk to Technopop 1978 – 1985)' collects Cabaret Voltaire's most concise and dynamic work. Full of "singles, edits, and shorter album tracks", this compilation captures the essence of Sheffield's electronic pioneers. Out on Mute. 

Holden
The Inheritors

The Inheritors was (James) Holden's follow up to his much-loved 2006 debut The Idiots Are Winning. Again on Border Community it was another fruitful journey into his sound world  - an immersive swirl of sounds that takes dance music and stretches it to its outer limits. Comparisons are hard to pick out but there's something of the prism-like haze of Boards of Canada here but Holden's sound is truly all his own.

Nicola Ratti
Ossario Vol. 2

Through the use of sound generated from modular synthesizer, tapes and samples Ossario is a collection of ten separate and independent songs - in two volumes, available separately - introducing a new and radical composing method. The aim is to build some kind of musical skeletons designed not to be covered in flesh and tissues, but trying to reduce everything to the bone. This double release marks the end of the journey started with220 Tones (Die Schachtel, 2011) and continued with Streengs (Senufo Editions, 2012), focusing the research on the use of well-defined sound to be used now as a rhythmic element, now as en electronic impulse or eventually as a self-standing musical element. Simple sounds generated with magnetic tape saturation or electric pulses match with elements belonging to the language of techno music, shifting the focus away from its usual (and predictable) axis to a new (and eccentric) point of view.

Greater Lengths: An All Saints Compilation

Two discs neatly summing up the brilliance of Dominic Norman-Taylor’s All Saints label.

The Quasi Dub Development
Little Twister vs Stiff Neck

The Quasi Dub Development make friendly homemade Dub with their hands and many instruments. This gives their records an experimental yet at the same time more accessible feel than other recordings in the genre that rely more heavily on post production methods and effects. This unique sound even inspired Dub pioneer Lee 'Scratch' Perry to make an appearance on the track “Let's Communicate”.
