Clark
Turning Dragon

Both Brian and I accidentally both reviewed the Clark 'Turning Dragon' album so here's mine. Sadly it's smaller than his... We've just entered into a wee debate about electronic dance music that's trying to be too clever for its own good...Warp have been promising for a while now that Clark is the new Aphex squarepusher. He does have his momen...view item »

Lapsed & Nonnon
The Death of Convenience

For his third full length album, Lapsed (Salt Lake City's Jason Stevens) pairs up with his long time live-collaborator Nonnon (Dave Madden). The Death Of Convenience is a lot more than yet another electronic hip hop album. Appropriately titled, it is a record in which nothing is convenient. Genre-less, it rewards those who are willing to abandon...view item »

Christian Bjorklund
The Lost Tracks

Gouede Oussou
Nothing Matters

Gouede Oussou's 'Nothing Matters' has drum machine beats that remind me of Big Black and some late 80's post industrial acts Front 242, Cop Shoot Cop, KMFDM, Ministry etc. It's kinda like techno/ EBM / industrial with lots of samples and occasional guitars.15 tracks plus remixes from Cheju, Karhide, Terminal Cheesecake, Living Tissue and Puff Tube....view item »

Alter Ego
Why Not

All of the tracks begin with a similar template. Block rockin beats, fuzzy throbbing synths, woozy melodies, bits of dubstep, dancehall and techno, all wound up weirdly tangled electro / techno hybrids. Things get all wonky, in a very good way, some tracks get all epic and majestic, the synths swelling into huge grandiose melodies, others fall a...view item »

Tokyo Mask
Hinterlands

Tokyo Mask: "Hinterlands" is a dark-drone driftwork that develops with the addition of twitchy, dubby rhythms and percussion. At times atmospheric and brooding this collection no doubt needs repeat listens to appreciate the intricate layering and processing used to form this genre straddling production. Almost, at times reminiscent of dub...view item »

The Missing Ensemble
Zeropolis

Low Impedance: The Missing Ensemble: "Zeropolis" is a chiming, droning drift based collection of six pieces ranging from low to high end oscillations. ...view item »

Strategy
Future Rock

Strategy: "Future Rock" on Kranky, like the label this set encompasses various elements that make up modern music production values, techniques and hardware. It also covers the variety of styles and genres most eclectic music lovers embrace, from headphone ambience, drifting dub-like sound-scapes, dance, the dreaded IDM field with influen...view item »

Sveldt
Bi-Polar EP

The Sveldt 'Bi-Polar' CD kicks off with 'Hynt' which his a mega uptempo glitchy robotic beat and then lunges into 'Hynt' which is a more chilled melodic electronic cut. Then into some Autechre style noisy industrial sound design with 'Daadrul'. 'Lz-35' gets a bit spannered. Again this is on Airvent Media. ...view item »

Output Message
Sommeil (Remixed)

I quite enjoyed that OUTPUTMESSAGE album that came out on Output. Not enough to take one but I was happy that it was on in the background while I constantly confuse myself. Here is a 12" (vinyl only release) which features 5 remixes of Sommeil thanks to those people at Melodic Records.  The mixes aren't really by ...view item »

Blaknoisewhitesoul
Rulebreaker

Here is BLAKNOISEWHITESOUL with their 7" Rulebreaker. A poppy song with 4 chords and female vocals. Its a bit retro electronic robot sounding. Sound good in club off ya head but bit bland in the office. ...view item »

Del Wire
01

The first one is by Del Wire which is simply called 01 (on LP and CD). we heard this a week or 2 ago and were blown away. In fact everything on the label is superb. DEL WIRE make atmospheric electronica with hip hop beats. The thing that sets this apart from the plethora of other similar titles is that they seem to have a rea...view item »

Kid606
Pretty Girls Make Raves

Hmmmmn. About a 2 year ago, I'd probably be quite exited about a new Kid 606 album. These days I couldn't really give a fig. Think I'm all laptop gabberred out y'know. 'Pretty Girls Make raves' is the hilariously titled newie from Miguel wothisface & we're straight into techno-for-frightened-indie-kids territory. It sounds like So...view item »

Hypo
Random Veneziano

Both fat Bazzer 'n' my quiet cohort UncleClint (tm) have expressed enthusiasm for the last CD by Hypo on Active Suspension. Now there's a new one (called "Random Veneziano") & I'm up to deliver a diatribe about how great it is. No, really. This is bonkers music made with a totally POP attitude. Joseph Nothing...view item »

Hypo
Karaoke A Capella

Active Suspension bring us a rather fantastic CD by Hypo which we've been loving big time loving time big over the last few weeks. Christ this is good.... Cut up electronica but unusually it focuses more on melody thus making a right good album. It's absolutely bonkers and reminds me of Josep...view item »

Cacoy
Human Is Music

Did you know that Efterklang have their own label called Rumraket which is Danish for space rocket? Hell I didn't know that til just 5 minutes ago. In my excitement I just had to tell someone... the wife wouldn't be interested in the slightest so you get the brunt of my knowledge. Anyway new in on Rumraket is...view item »

Various
Trade & Distribution Almanac 1

Adaadat. Yeah it's an IDM label but with a difference. The tunes are actually good. We have a compilation here on CD only called 'Trade & Distribution Almanac' which is the bounciest and most enjoyable bunch of laptop japes i've heard in a while. Skewed Electro-ey madness in places and some more br...view item »

Neotropic
White Rabbits

For her fourth album, Neotropic moves to the under-the-radar, but excellent, American label Mush. With "New Cross," she drifts into a quiet space, emphasising the folk elements, with a touch of rhythm to ground it. "Inch Inch" picks up the pace some, making the drum patterns more noticeable, though it disintegrates halfway through into an ambian...view item »

Vision And The Riddle
Tilt

First up is by the hugely eclectic Vision & The Riddle who've sent us their mysterious little 7"s in the past. Now we have a lovely white vinyl issue of their Tilt mini album. Well, looks like no-one reviewed it originally so I'll just say, we have here a smorgasbord of cinematic breaks, inspired samples, twisted electronics, ...view item »

Caribou
Up In Flames

On a similiar tip is the new Manitoba album which sounds much more Fourtet-ee than the last one. If you want an indication of what yr getting it's something like Fourtet having eaten Sun Ra and then being eaten by a bloody great big My Bloody Valentine monster. That make sen...view item »

Chok Rock
Big City Loser

Perhaps deliberately I didn't notice the Chok Rock CD/12" (on Warp) lying in the box of new stuff we rifle through to pick our review choices. Perhaps I thought It looked a bit....well....shit. It's filtered French judder funk with added aroma. Annoying in that cut up soulful vox way that Super Collider had but then ...view item »

Scanner & Dessy
Play Along

Bundok
Cusp

A 12" by Bundok on Spezial Material called Cusp. This is squelshy,  bleepy electronic music that takes a rhythmic Gescom like path. Some of the sounds are a little dated to me but it does the job in an efficient manner. ...view item »

Yellotone
Tar File Junction

New from Yellotone. The search continues for the new Ulrich Schnauss. Nearly but no cigar. This is good indie stroke electronica. Great fluent beats, BOC style bass melodies and the thrashing of a ....what?.... a guitar. Its very chirpy this. I do feel I've heard this before...oh some it has been out before. Has it?  T...view item »

Signer
The New Face of Smiling

This Signer album is not genre defying it is genre surpassing. Taking the precision and control that electronica has over music and infusing it with an indie-guitar sound that threatens to tear the controls loose, which it then does, then relinquishes. Its accessibility intrigues on first listen and with subsequent repeats you find yourself wanting...view item »

Antennae
I Disappear

That most curious of labels, Botanica Del Jibaro has another 7" of atmospheric alternative hip hop out called I Disappear, this one by Antennae. One side is a stream of  sublime social consciousness over a fairly pretty Fourtet-esque hip-hop backing, on the flip being a nifty slice of a cappella. Really interesting...view item »

Slicker
We All Have A Plan

The album as a whole is a bit messy, but with some bright spots here and there. With We All Have a Plan, Slicker seems to take a much more pop direction with the vocals, although it's very IDM-influenced pop. "God Bless This Mess, This Test We Pass" has a moody underpinning with the mournful horn, while the hip-hop of "When The Dog Goes Lame" is sp...view item »

Braer Rabbit
Fat Content Trace

Also bloody nifty is the new Braer Rabbit 12" , "Fat Content: Trace". Always one step ahead of any competition, this Brighton 2 piece comprise Puffin Boy & Tiny Hunter & make this kind of jaw dropping hypnotic future disco that transcends the constraints of the Electro genre. In the words of the boys...view item »

Andrew Duke
Take Nothing For Granted

Andrew Duke is a prolific chap. We have 3 CDs in on his own Cognition Audioworks imprint & it's slo-mo minimalist crackle, staticky fuzz 'n' treated beats ago-go. Not particularly endearing to these ears but for lovers of avant garde electronics, this man may be the new Fennesz or summat. ...view item »

Spark
The Robotic Girl Next Door

Next up Spark with 'The Robotic Girl Next Door'. . Anyway this is crunchy electronic music. Its quite original sounding  - there's some great beats and complicated but catchy electronics whizzing over the top. Sometimes I'm unsure whether the world needs anymore electronic music  - I'm sure there is an EU ele...view item »
