Christian Löffler
Lys

What to do when you are struggling with writers block? Christian Löffler travelled to Scandinavia and visited loads of galleries. That seemed to shift the damn thing and he returns with his fourth full length album Lys. As well as galleries it was inspired by forests, running and the early morning light on his studio walls. The result is a calming work even on the more upbeat tracks and features the vocals of Swedish singer Mohna.

Somni
Home

Nice background story for Leo Shulman aka Somni as he swapped Hampshire for L.A as a child and spent his teenage years soaking up the music of his new country. Initially this was the more guitar orientated liked of Elliot Smith and Cat Power but subsequently he immersed himself in the soul and hip-hop of the likes of Flying Lotus and J. Dilla. You can hear all these influences in this album of intimate home-fi songwriting as Shulman returns to the music that excited him as a kid. 

Matt Karmil
STS371

A ruminative album of ambient, hazy house music constructed from loops and soft-edged beats, STS371 is the fifth collection from British-born producer Matt Karmil. Put together at his own studio in Cologne, Karmil’s work fits neatly into an impressive output that dates back his earliest album ----. 

Index
Kainos

Known best as the drummer for Slowdive, British musician Simon Scott makes his debut under his Index solo alias. Dealing in dissonant, fractured swathes of noise, inspired by political instability and in places containing fragments of heated parliamentary debates concerning Brexit, Kainos is chaotic and compelling.

Primitive World
The Revolt Of Aphrodite

Inspired by the science fiction books of Laurence Durrell is Sam Wills aka Primitive World who creates a mazy marathon of sound with lots of different aspects. The Revolt of Aphrodite ranges from Alva Noto style minimal electronics to cubist rhythms and off kilter beat work. It's all shot through with an otherworldly feel but one with a playful nature at heart.

The Mulholland Free Clinic
The Mulholland Free Clinic

Together, Jonah Sharp, Move D, Juju and Jordash have formed The Mulholland Free Clinic, an institute for improvised live electronic hardware music. For their second ever set, they played for three hours. The recordings were then cut down to the 80-minute form you see before you, and then spread over three LPs of remarkably strong ebb and flow. 3LP set on the Away label.

D.Å.R.F.D.H.S.
Förintelsen & Döden

Michael Isorinne and Jonas Rönnberg aka Varg make up the Swedish electronic duo D.Å.R.F.D.H.S. Opal Tapes are reissuing their early cassette album Förintelsen & Döden, remastered, on vinyl. The album became a cult classic due to its mix of uncompromising electro, industrial, pulsating sounds which pass by with no let-up.

Following on from previous efforts, Legend and last year’s Awakening, Endless is the third in a trilogy of releases from Idaho-based band Magic Sword. Known for wearing cloaks and masks on stage, The Keeper, The Seer, and The Weaver’s retrowave/synthwave blend has previously landed them on the soundtrack for the trailer to Thor: Ragnarok.

Maribou State
fabric presents Maribou State

The latest compilation from Fabric sees electronic duo Maribou State pick some of their favourite tunes. It's an eclectic leftfield choice with the likes of Stelvio Cipriani, Botany and Ekkehard Ehlers all representing but the boys get some of their own music on there including a rare remix of Radiohead's Reckoner. 

SONIKKU
Diamond Dust

An interesting concept almost puts two EPs into one here, each track featuring a rework from eclectic producer Mobbs. It's all late night swirls though, with advances in rhythms and transient beat-like timbres setting tracks apart. It's the most ambient side of μ-Ziq, in a computer game in an ecotopian future.

Cosmic Ground

Deep Distance, the sister label of red-hot London imprint Polytechnic Youth, kicks off its 2020 with the latest Cosmic Ground album. The fifth effort from Electric Orange’s Dirk Jan Muller’s occasional side-project, Cosmic Ground consists of three enjoyably weighty kosmiche-influenced jams, with the third taking up the entire second side of this ‘galaxy yellow / smoky black’-coloured vinyl.

Oto Hiax
Two

Oto Hiax are a duo made up of Mark Clifford of Seefeel, and Scott Gordon of Loops Haunt. Two is their aptly named second album of nightmarish, otherworldly sounds. The album’s track titles seem to be onomatopoeic with names like Dapple, Scutter, Strain and Silt. This gives a better idea of the sounds on offer than anything else I could write.

A new collaboration landing, between night bus mystery man Burial and bass-weight Skeng supremo The Bug! For many fans of the UK bass music scene, this will be the collaboration of their dreams, and these two tracks under their Flame 1 handle do not disappoint in the slightest. These dense, smoky, dubbed out and deeply atmospheric slo-mo steppers come via Pressure, a new label from Kevin Martin himself.

Rrose
Hymn to Moisture

Something about the word moist or moisture, unless I’m talking about cake, makes me want to have a shower immediately. It’s clearly not the case for Rrose, AKA Seth Horvitz FKA Sutekh FKA Suite K with debut album, Hymn To Moisture. The experimental producer shows influences from bosses of techno such as Jeff Mills, Pan Sonic, and Plastikman along with famed electronic composers such as Eliane Radigue, Laurie Spiegel, and Phill Niblock to make an album as cerebral as it is visceral.

Nick Araguay
EP

Sähkö Recordings presents the latest EP from the mysterious London-based artist Nick Araguay, about whom little is known despite a career that’s lasted over half a decade. He first started picking up attention five years ago with his SE15 Tales, a brooding mix of house and techno released on the Peckham imprint Peur Bleue. This new three-track collection, functionally titled EP, arrives with similarly little context. 

Kate NV
Room For The Moon

Kate NV is a Moscow-based producer, songwriter and composer with a background in post-punk. She was a member of Russian band ГШ, or GS for those who can’t read Cyrillic (like me!). Her latest album, Room For The Moon, follows-up  для FOR and sees her manipulated vocals woven into a fabric of xylophone, guitars, sax and synth.

M-G Dysfunction
Complete Deletion

Norman Records has a vast and rich history of its employees making music as well as packing it or writing about it. M-G Dysfunction is the latest and comes from someone we'll call Fred M-G who, initially it seems, is ashamed of this work but dig a little deeper behind his tough exterior and I'd bet you he is rather proud of it. It is a series of home recorded experiments that showcase a creative brain at work and has been compared to Rainforest Spiritual Enslavement and Carl Stone.

De Ambassade
Duistre Kamers

The minimal-wave fiends at Knekelhuis (EYE, Parrish Smith) offer up the debut LP from Amsterdam unit De Ambassade. Duistre Kamers builds on the sound laid down on the group’s formative EPs Verloren and Wat Voel Je Nou. These nine tracks oscillate wildly between minimal synth, electronic post-punk, EBM and coldwave. Serious Cold War vibes with this one - think Suicide, The D.A.F., Fad Gadget and the rest.

You remember that ace 'Jungle Dancing' party guaranteed record from Leisure Connection on No 'Label' right? 'March Of The Imbecile / Love From The Astroplane' sees the duo of Aaron Coyes (Peaking Lights, Image Club, Face Plant) and Nate Archer return with a couple of trippy tunes, recorded in Los Angeles and presented via the R=A label. They used to make tracks as Rahdunes, and have brought some of that zoned, freaky psychedelic flavour to these cuts.

Systems E.P. 1

25 years ago this Systems E.P. 1, featuring three cuts from Red Shift, one from Ether, one from Escape Artist and one from Constants of Nature, was too much to handle, clearly way ahead of its time and consigned to the bargain bin. Once people started to get it, though, that bargain bins across the globe were scoured with anticipation of finding a cheap copy. It was harder to find than you might have thought but no fear, its being reissued by Kalahari Oyster Cult.

His last release for the label was the influential Lucky 9Teen EP.  Slott is keen, with Vignettes, to avoid the cliched ‘imagined film soundtrack’ tag. It is, however, quite useful in describing the sonic world he has created here. Immerse yourself.

Miguel Noya
Canciones Intactas

Canciones Intactas, which translates into English as Songs Intact is a lovely name for a career retrospective. It suggests ambient electronic composer Miguel Noya is telling us “Whatever has happened, I’ve made these songs and they’re here for eternity”. His music has seldom been heard outside of his native Venezuela and were mostly recorded to a backdrop of national financial crises, a corrupt government and violence on the streets. The music acted as, not necessarily a remedy, but a soothing balm to help cope with the outside chaos.

Christoph de Babalon / Mark
Split

Quite a unique split mini-LP this one as Berlin beatmaster Christoph de Babalon takes up three quarters with some of his menacing and complex breaks but leaves a little room at the end for the mysterious Mark returning to the label after a pair of stellar EPs as well as a couple of belter on Unterton. Here he provides a piece of isolationist woodwind entitled 'Duet for Melodica and Claves'.

Velvet Desert Music Vol. 2

The second instalment in Jörg Burger’s series of compilations for the Kompakt label, Velvet Desert Music Vol. 2 seeks to mingle the core aesthetic components of diverse genres such as soundtrack work, downtempo pop, kosmiche and Sixties psychedelia. Features tracks by the likes of The Fantastic Twins, Sascha Funke and Superpitcher on top of newcomers like Golden Bug and Mount Obsidian. 

Star Searchers
Avatar Blue

How far could you swim in two hours? I could do about 25 metres I reckon on a good day and with the wind behind. This 2CD from former the Skaters member Spencer Clark as Star Searchers features two hours of music made to represent the swimming patterns of aquatic life. It also serves as a soundtrack to an speculated imagining of how James Cameron's forthcoming Avatar 2 might be soundtracked. Ocean-based new aged synth wanderings for bath time. 

Ratgrave
Rock

Rock  - great title but it isn't just rock music that duo of Max Graef and Julius Conrad are interested in. Here as Ratgrave they take influence from funk, soul, jazz rock and electronica to make an album that may well be genre splicing but still owes a debt to Blue Cheer and Black Sabbath. On the Black Focus label founded by Kamaal Williams.

PC Music Vol 1 & 2

PC Music is a London based label whose USP is to put records out that are surreal or hyper real takes on pop music. This double LP or CD contains two albums worth of what they have given to the world since the label’s inception in 2013. Artists include Hannah Diamond, Danny L. Harle, Life Sim and label founder A.G. Cook.

Ulrich Schnauss
A Strangely Isolated Place

We certainly need some music that screams "don't worry, everything is going to be ok" with big soothing synths and comforting bass lines right now. One answer could be to revisit Ulrich Shnauss's back catalogue which often melds Boards of Canada-style electronics with towering melodies. A Strangely Isolated Place was his second album and since Schnauss has the rights to his back catalogue back, he's doing the decent thing and re-issuing them.

It was recorded in Brighton and Frome over a three-year spell. On Castles In Space.

Stasis / Phenomyna
Vinyle Inaugural Vol 1

Steve Pickton is an undisputed UK techno legend - his vision of Detroit techno and his productions on B12, Peacefrog etc. are classics. Perhaps his most well-known handle is Stasis, but he's also released records as Phenomyna on Kirk Digiogio's Applied Rhythmic Technology (ART) label among many others. Here we have the second release on his co-owned Fencepice label following an EP under his Soul 223 alias. It features the sublime 'Tau' for the first time on vinyl -- it originally appeared only on the CD edition of his 1995 'Inspiration' album on Peacefrog. 'Travellor' and 'From Afar' also appear for the first time on wax after only being available on Phenomyna's 1994 CD 'Unexplained' on ART. Vinyl DJ's will be glad to finally get their paws on these gorgeous works of celestial, glistening machine soul.

Comes with an essay insert and a download card for the four unmixed tracks. 

Phantoms vs Fire
Modern Monsters I & II

Sharing the same protagonist as this album’s predecessor My Mind As Your Amusement Park, Brazilian composer Thiago C. Desant’s latest Phantoms vs Fire album Modern Monsters I & II thematically follows on but in musical terms contains more brass and percussive elements, yet not ditched the over-arching sense of dread and tension. 

Meemo Comma
Sleepmoss

Sleepmoss is the second album by Meemo Comma, AKA, Lara Rix-Martin, a Brighton-based producer. It is the follow-up to Ghost On The Stairs, which was an inward-looking, yet, cathartic album. Sleepmoss is more outward-looking, inspired by autumn and winter walks with her dog, celebrating the glory of nature.

Lydspor is Danish for soundtrack, and here -- available for the first time, on two sides of vinyl and CD edition -- are the tracks documenting Vainio's tinkerings with the prototype Moog Modular System 55, a reverse-engineered edition replicating the 1970s classic synth. A second session was planned but sadly Vainio died before that could happen. The record is thus a fitting memorial to a wonderfully gifted, softly spoken man. On Moog Recordings Library.

High brow stuff on Editions Mego as Jasmine Guffond which uses source material from various projects including a dance performance about the imagined future sound of a forest.

SDEM
Index Hole

SDEM aka Tom Knapp is an artist and DJ working in Northern England. This debut release for CPU follows on from a 12” of abstract electronics entitled 'Mophoc Rez' released under his given name on Ge-stell, and two SDEM cassettes released on meds and CADMUS. 'Index Hole' brings to the forefront exploratory and grotesque takes on abstracted electro and mutated strains of breakbeat hardcore, electronica and hip hop.

RX-101
Serenity

Continuing a run of fascinating releases, Suction Records trawls Erik Jong’s vault for yet another RX-101 album. Apparently recorded during the late Nineties, Serenity recalls the unhinged beat avalanches of classic Aphex Twin material -- think Caustic Window/early Rephlex - totally nailing that tough crunchy sound with infusions of evocative melody.

John Foxx and The Maths
Howl

With a new backing band of long-term collaborator Ben Edwards (a.k.a. producer Benge), Robin Simon (formerly of Ultravox) and Hannah Peel, John Foxx and The Maths release their fifth studio album Howl. Dark, expressive and synth-leaning, it’s a subtly different proposition to the outfit’s previous releases.

Neil Landstrumm
A Death, a Mexican and a Mormon

Heroic figures of bleep techno don't come as frequently as acid pioneers or techno luminaries, but this doesn't dent the worth of Neil Landstrumm. He continues his legacy with a four track 12" EP on CPU, arching back to the roots of the genre in a drum machine, circuit riff storm of a release for floor and brain dancers everywhere.

Dalglish
Niaiw Ot Vile

Niaiw Ot Vile is a stark and uncompromising work from Daglish. The sounds, although electronic and usually massively processed, feel immediate and organic. The record is fractured and complex, full of insectile chatters, broken drones, and monochrome arrangements. There's a wonderful progression to this record, slowly morphing from skeletal, glitchy malfunctioning into a hushed bed of swirling white noise. Our Ant put it best when he wrote (down below) '‘Niaiw Ot Vile’ is techno; blues channeled through circuits.'

Tokimonsta
Oasis Noturno

US producer and DJ, Tokimonsta has been through the mill in the last five years. A debilitating illness which led to two brain surgeries and a loss of speech, hearing and ability to make music. She made a remarkable recovery to record the critically acclaimed Lune Rouge in 2017. Now she’s back again with Oasis Noturno, her 6th album, it punches with significant weight.

Mariska Baars / Rutger Zuydervelt
eau

Although they regularly collaborate within the context of the Piiptsjilling quartet going back several years, Mariska Baars and Rutger Zuydervelt haven’t worked exclusively with each other since 2008. eau, a long-awaited album from the pair, is based on a lengthy, vaporous new composition best enjoyed on headphones! 

Rutger Zuydervelt
Sileen II

Sileen II is a studio version of a performance that Rutger Zuydervelt originally gave back in 2016, when he was commissioned by Musica to compose a piece for the OORtreders festival in Belgium to be played by 50 members of a local school orchestra. The simple structure of Zuydervelt’s music is exposed in this very much slowed-down version. 

Golden Bug
V.I.C.T.O.R

Parisian producer and DJ Golden Bug returns with V.I.C.T.O.R. an album, and also a Barcelona-based robot, apparently. It is released though his own La Belle label. The album features collaborations with Julienne Dessagne, Anna Jean, Moscoman, Yan Wagner and Pajaro Sunrise. Frazzled disco-meets-powerful techno.

Jon Hopkins & Kelly Lee Owens
Luminous Spaces / Luminous Beings

Regarded as one of the most pioneering and boundary-pushing electronic twiddlers in the game at the moment, Jon Hopkins' recent works have seen the producer reach new stratospheric level. In this collaboration with Kelly Lee Owens, 'Luminous Beings' is re-worked into a sparkling and transcending slice of gold named 'Luminous Spaces'.

Addenda is the debut record on Central Processing Unit for Calum Gunn. You may have some of his previous released, the Berlin-based avant-garde electronic producer has released through Entr'acte, FLUF and Tsuku Boshi.

EDMX
World Phaser

Producer Ed Upton delivers another studio album under his EDMX moniker, this time a double-vinyl package, and predictably going in a different direction yet again. On World Phaser, his first album for the Queen Nanny label, Upton keeps the arrangements stripped down and the bass frequencies cranked up. 

Steve Moore
s/t

Steve Moore has spent more time composing for the big and little screens these past few years, but if anything this experience seems to have made his output less 'cinematic' in the traditional sense. Whereas Moore’s previous entries for L.I.E.S. (2012’s Panther Moderns and 2011’s Zero-Point Field) were all widescreen hybrids of Detroit techno and Vangelis-isms, his new self-titled EP for Ron Morelli’s label is far more pared back. Only on the closing cut does Moore come close to his older sound, with the rest of Steve Moore opting for a sparse blend of kosmische synths and lilting programmed beats.

Move D
Building Bridges

The name Move D is pretty much a byword for quality in the world of dance music these days. Building Bridges, the latest LP from David Moufang’s most prominent project, keeps up the brand profile with another set of elegant and sleek deep house tracks. Given that Building Bridges works so well as a whole it’s surprising to find out that some of these cuts were made two decades apart from each other. Thomas Fehlmann, Juju & Jordash and Fred P are among the guests.

Kutmah
New Appliance

Way back in 2010 All City released the first in what would be a series of 10” singles featuring the best of the Los Angeles beatmakers. Kutmah will be the last in the series, and his appearance has been long-awaited. Operating in his own groove, in all senses, on New Appliance, he mixes established beat styles with new wave, punk and noise elements.

Barker
Utility

Pitched somewhere between IDM and straight house music, Utility is the debut solo album from producer Sam Barker, following up on his well-received EP Debiasing last year. The record spans nine tracks of inner-space travel, beginning as psychedelic thumbnail sketches and thrashed out into electronic epics. 

Tangerine Dream

Rainforest Spiritual Enslavement
Venus Flytrap Exotica

Dominick Fernow (Prurient) and Phillippe Hallais (Low Jack) reunite as Rainforest Spiritual Enslavement for another cut of humid dub dread. ‘Venus Flytrap Excotica’ is aptly titled, relocating the dance-floor in the depths of the jungle, with this sense of being entwined in a mass wildlife, straying further and further outwards from civilisation.

Bullion
We Had A Good Time

I've just blathered about how the Wants album artwork matches the title of the album but here it's hard to see what a melting foot has to do with a good time. Bullion however has struck gold with the press release which tells us that Nathan Jenkins made this after returning from the coast of Arrábida to a new home studio situated behind the grand hotel setting of Wim Wenders’ Lisbon Story. How nice for him. The music is a fascinating kind of danceable chamber disco pop inspired by journeys to shopping malls in an old Renault.

WaqWaq Kingdom
Essaka Hoisa

WaqWaq Kingdom consists of Japanese musicians Shigeru Ishihara of DJ Scotch Egg / Seefeel fame and Kiki Hitomi (ex-King Midas Sound) and they make something they like to call 'minyo footwork'. To the layman this means adventures in sound that combines such disparate things as afro-beat, contemporary electronica, techno and Jamaican dancehall. The result is a wildly creative, intoxicating brew of sound.

Here we have another - Nina Kraviz Presents MASSEDUCTION Rewired - on which the Russian DJ and producer curates a selection of remixes from the original LP. Nina Kravitz provides a remix of New York whilst Emika, Pearson Sound, Mala, EOD, Laurel Halo and Batu take a track each and remould them in their own vision.
