Sisso
Mateso

Sisso is a crucial figure in Tanzania’s Singeli scene, the sound that has come to be associated with the brilliant Nyege Nyege Tapes label. Mateso, a eight-track LP that compiles music made by Sisso in the last three years, will come to stand alongside 2017’s Sounds Of Sisso as one of the genre’s primary tomes. Hyperspeed dance music of the highest order.

Grauzone
Eisbär

12” single re-issue of ‘Eisbär’, the 1981 hit single from short-lived German outfit Grauzone. Meaning ‘polar bear’ in German and evoking an icy, Arctic atmosphere, this synthy post-punk gem was a substantial success in the band’s native country and is now regarded as a minor genre classic. Contains Grauzone’s two other minor hits ‘FILM 2’ and ‘Ich Lieb Sie’ on the B-side. 

K Á R Y Y N
THE QUANTA SERIES

K Á R Y Y N (yes I’ve checked, and apparently I do have to write it out like that) presents her debut album to the world. The Quanta Series has been in the works for seven years, in which time our hero has been travelling the world and absorbing inspiration from her Syrian-Armenian-American familial history. The results are remarkably intense and vivid, with very direct electronics amidst an avant-operatic scope. On Mute.

Graham Dunning
Keg / Bulkhead

Graham Dunning puts the turntables to one side for a highly focused release on the Courier label. All sounds on Keg / Bulkhead’s two lengthy tracks are derived from a snare drum, which is activated using a motor and various objects for incessant textural fun. 'Keg' has a jackhammer motor rhythm at its core, while 'Bulkhead' is more of a sheer drone. Cassette release.

Bowditch
Alchemy 4

Alchemy 4 by Bowditch is a series of pieces created for an exhibition in Colchester, Essex. Comprising entirely of sounds found in one particular building, Alchemy 4 is a work that conveys an alienating sense of place. Listen for the way that the sound of fire alarm bells, typically used in an entirely practical purpose, has been turned on its head in an oddly beautiful way. 

Diacritical Mark
Lozenges (Regular Strength)

Improvised and recorded partly on an iPad, Diacritical Mark's new experimental piece Lozenges, suggests a reluctant acceptance in engaging with modern culture. It's an interesting dichotomy, then, that this is being released on tape. Although the press release highlights how Lozanges concentrates on the 'futility of trying to cope with regular life experiences', this tape is a wholly engaging and enjoyable listen. 

Renick Bell
Turning Points

A set of tracks made by live coding leads to a set of lurching, glitchy electronica. Who’d have thought... Anyway, Renick Bell is one of the best in the business for this sort of thing, and new tape Turning Points demonstrates exactly why. Frenzied IDM, digital MIDI-bap and slamming Szare-like techno all rear their head here in Turning Points' first three tracks alone.

The Future Sound Of London
Environment 6.5

Future Sound Of London’s Environments series began in 1993, though without any releases seeing the light of day till 2008. Now they present a pair of new records (released separately) that map out some properly deep an imaginative electronic territory: vintage FSOL. Environment 6.5 is released by Jumpin’ & Pumpin’.

Caribou
Our Love

You reach a point in life where the question of how to stay at the top of your game looms; the only real solution being, you change the game. Our Love, the new album from Caribou, is the sound of Dan Snaith doing just that. Our Love is due October 6th on City Slang and is the sixth studio album from Caribou. The album features collaborations with Jessy Lanza and Owen Pallett. It was mixed by David Wrench and features artwork by Jason Evans/ Matthew Cooper.

Graham Reznick
Glass Angles

If he’s not a familiar name to you, Graham Reznick has had a hand in some of the most haunting soundtrack work of the last decade, scoring video games and movies. Now, he delivers a debut solo album titled Glass Angles, taking inspiration from the night-time streets of his home city of Los Angeles.

Silicon Scally
Cobalt Blue

Silicon Scally is back on Central Processing Unit (DMX Krew, Cygnus) with another set of electro niceness. Cobalt Blue contains four robust club tracks from the one born Carl Finlow. Entries like ‘Protocol 2’ and Cobalt Blue’s title piece chirrup away in that manner that makes you think of Fritz Lang’s Metropolis. ‘Asynchronous’ is a little tougher, its blurting bass drum reminiscent of Special Request.

Boy Harsher
Come Closer

US dark synth-pop duo Boy Harsher follow up their second album, Careful, with a pair of 12” singles. Come Closer features four versions of the album track. The most mouth-watering aspect of this particular wax slab is the remix by influential German DJ, producer and owner of the MDR label, Marcel Dettmann. On Nude Club.

DJ Haram
Grace

Recently seen making a ruckus alongside Moor Mother in 700 Bliss, DJ Haram now debuts on Hyperdub with an EP of tense club tunes. Grace pays homage to plenty of contemporary dancefloor trends without really embodying any of them. Jersey club, Baltimore club, hard drum and Fade To Mind’s future-forward beats are all in here somewhere, as are various musical styles from DJ Haram’s Middle Eastern and Islamic roots. Moor Mother shows up for the 700 Bliss team-up on ‘Candle Light’.

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 distorted techno-feel.

Monomorph / Brainwaltzera / The Jaffa Kid / SSIEGE / Rawmance
V.A 4

This is a collection of minimal techno singles by the likes of Monomorph (an Italian duo), Brainwaltzera, The Jaffa Kid (up and coming toon producer), SSIEGE (bizarre downtempo electronica), and Rawmance set for release on the 26th of April. For fans of A Guy Called Gerald and Max Graef. On La Beauté du Négatif.

Ministry
Twitch

Twitch was the second album by industrial powerhouse, Ministry, and was originally released in 1986. It was much darker than their debut, With Sympathy, and set the course for the rest of their career. The Land Of Rape And Honey followed in 1988. The album drew on influences such as Cabaret Voltaire resulting in a much harder sound than they were first known for.

Palmbomen II
Memories of Cindy Pt. 1

Palmbomen II inaugurates a new series of four EPs, title Memories of Cindy. Part one contains six tracks of woozy nostalgia electronics, with melancholy synth melodies playing out over a vapourwave void of pre-sets and samples. Plenty of atmosphere, and sometimes some grooves too. 12” on Beats In Space, limited to 350 copies.

Andrea Belfi
Strata

Percussionist and composer Andrea Belfi marks the recent announcement of his upcoming tour with Thom Yorke with the release of a mini-album, following two years on from his debut LP Ore. Consisting of six tracks spread, with all but one recorded as live studio takes, Strata is a must-listen for all fans of modern electronica.

Nathan Melja
Karibuni Music

Always good to see a new release from Antinote. Nathan Melja’s Karibuni Music EP continues the label’s excellent recent run that has included records from Alek Lee, Succhiamo and D.K.. This is a record of DJ tools that update the sounds of the 90’s deep and alternative house scenes for the modern dancefloor. Karibuni Music could just as easily have come out on Whities or Pacific Rhythm.

Ucc Harlo
United

UCC Harlo (aka Annie Garlid, a collaborator of Holly Herndon) makes her debut with an album six years in the making, representing a journey from classically-trained orchestral violinist to experimental producer. United features classical baroque styles filtered and re-focused, amongst synth drones, field recordings and much else besides, forming a fascinating and detailed whole. On Subtext.

Olafur Arnalds & Nils Frahm
Trance Frendz

Old friends and fellow neo-classical composer / performers Nils Frahm and Olafur Arnalds recently had a film made about them: the audio on this album, Trance Frendz, is taken from the same sessions documented in the film. First take improvisations that reach some delicate, sublime heights. LP on Erased Tapes.

Rezzett
Rezzett

Rezzett’s long-running relationship with The Trilogy Tapes culminates in the release of the pair’s debut LP. This eponymous record is largely comprised of lo-fi, sombre techno tracks that recall Actress and other TTT artists like Samo DJ. When the beats are stripped out, as they are on cuts like ‘Yunus In Ekstasi’, there is a wintry frailty to Rezzett’s synth tones that is reminiscent of Forest Swords.

Galya Bisengalieva
EP Two

Galya Bisengalieva is a violinist with a radical range: on this EP, EP Two, she tackles a piece of her own and a multi-layered duo with turntablist Shiva Feshareki (involving one musical response being cut to dubplate and then used as the source for a second duo response on Galya’s NOMAD Music Productions.

Serpente
Parada

Serpente’s Parada is all about rhythm. Loosely based on Prince’s 1986 masterpiece Parade, this LP is a high-energy LinnDrum press from the Portuguese producer. Hieroglyphic Being’s Afrofuturist dancefloor pieces, Fade To Mind’s club innovations, rave revivalism and the Principe sound of Serpente’s native Lisbon can all be heard across this innovative and excellent album.

Nawksh
Mythic Tales of Tomorrow II

Wild action from Pakistan, courtesy of Nawksh, who produces video games as well as music. Mythic Tales of Tomorrow II is a super-powerful brew-up of pretty much everything Nawksh enjoys, with new age sounds, messed-up LA-style beats and general abstract sonic explosions all involved. The results are heady. LP release on Guruguru Brain.

E B U
Hinge

You know, before I read the press release for Hinge by E B U I was going to reach for the word "swamp". But there it is, in the press release. No original thought for me. E B U's music is the sound of pop music trying to wade through filth. It's slow and sludgy and the vocals are unsettling, but under all that is lovely old pop.
  • Genre(s):

Aïsha Devi
S.L.F.

Aïsha Devi’s new release. It got out. The Swiss-born composer of rave-ambiance twistypop returns with a twelve described by the label as “an illuminating hijacking of collective consciousness”. What does that mean, you ask? It means tropes of trap, club, computer boffinry, haze-pop and cyberculture together in a lift.
  • Genre(s):
  • Electronic / Electro / IDM / EBM

Rainer Veil
Vanity

It’s been an incredible five year wait for Rainer Veil to deliver a debut album, but the dazzling, pin-point sonic details of the world they’ve created with Vanity makes it worth every minute. The effortless feel seems to have been down to a less exacting and more relaxed approach than their first two EPs all that time ago.

Vessels
Dilate (Special Edition)

They’ve been around for a while - they make our bodies work, in fact. This year, Vessels bring us a new sound, something they claim to have been working towards without realizing, Dilate focusing on our shared love for techno. How does it sound? Don't let us tell you what to think! Find out for yourself!

The Other People Place
Lifestyles Of The Laptop Café

The long wished-for repress of Lifestyles of the Laptop Café finally materialises, fifteen years after the late James Stinson of Drexciya renown released the classic anonymously as the Other People Place on Warp. It’s a seamless, calming and moving piece of downtempo electronica that has become a key album in dance music history, and should well be a staple item in any home listening fan’s collection with its renewed availability.

Deru
Torn In Two

LA label Friends Of Friends (Shlohmo, Gun Selectah) release an LP of microtonal experiments from Deru. As one might expect from an album where the primary sound artefacts are discordant drones, Torn In Two isn’t exactly easy listening. Deru’s experience of composing for the silver screen - he worked on Avatar: The Last Airbender doncha know - means he approaches many of the pieces here with a cinematic ear for space and detail. This makes many of the cuts sound like a mix of György Ligeti and something from the Blade Runner soundtrack.

Ben Chatwin
Drone Signals

Former Talvihorros chap Ben Chatwin has not been content with releasing one album this year. Instead he has gone back to his sound sources for 'Staccato Signals' and created an entirely new work. 'Drone Signals' as you might guess by the title is a more ambient stretched out work that will appeal to all your drone and neo classical greats like Ben Frost and Max Richter. 

A Sagittariun
The Circle Stops Somewhere

Sagittariuns, eh. Generous, funny, impatient, and - on the evidence of A Sagittariun’s The Circle Stops Somewhere - into raving. Originally issued way back in 2011, the influence of Nick Harris’ first EP under this name can be heard in subsequent works by the likes of Floating Points and Answer Code Request. The two originals are propulsive, melodic and slightly wistful techno that will go well with many DJ styles. Mike Dehnert provides a duo of remixes - one laid-back, one tough.

Void Vision
Sub Rosa

Shari Vari heads up Void Vision - the philadelphia-based minimalist synth project. By adding melody to vintage dance grooves, Vari has created a dynamic and unique sound that cherry-picks its influences from the last 30 years of electronica. Sub Rosa is available on vinyl LP and limited to 400 copies.

TRjj
Music Compilation: 12 Dances

TRjj like to keep it mysterious and anonymous, hence their lack of individual biographies and the evocative title of their new release: Music Compilation. To be fair, they aren’t wrong. This LP contains twelve tracks of shuffling moods, with sleepy vocals, ticking drum machines, bass rumbles… Simple, but really quite compelling. Out on Stroom.

Various
Scores

As part of their 2018 festival, Dekmantel commissioned four artists to come up with new soundtracks for films from the Netherlands Institute for Sound and Vision and the EYE Filmmuseum. The contributors - Jordan GCZ, upsammy, Parrish Smith and Suzanne Kraft - each turned in intriguing work. Jordan GCZ and upsammy created some dubbed-out and slightly Balearic electronic atmospheres, Kraft turned in a tranquil ambience and Smith ended up on a Nurse With Wound tip. Their compositions are collected on the Scores 12”.

Joyfultalk
Plurality Trip

Do bands still get 'signed' to labels in our year of the lord 2018? If so, Joyfultalk is the newest contract artist for the unimpeachable Constellation Records, the experimental Montreal imprint that seem to be deep-diving into electronic music of late. A project of electronic artist Jay Crocker, Pluraity Trip is a honing of kosmische music, sublimating dance and glitch into a new, cerebral whole.
  • Genre(s):
  • Electronic / Electro / IDM / EBM

The Field
The Follower

Kompakt bring us The Field’s The Follower on CD and 180 gram vinyl. This album is six tracks of luscious long-form techno made from his trademark dense loops and beautiful textures. With even more of a kosmische element, this release is the perfect melancholic headphone music to drift off with.
  • Genre(s):
  • Electronic / Electro / IDM / EBM

Jung An Tagen
Proxy States

It’s techno, Jim, but not as we know it! The youthful Jung An Tagen returns to Mego with a cassette of “modern composition techniques” squarely aimed at invoking the aesthetic of techno music. With its odd spectral freezing and glistening rhythms, the album will delight lovers of unconventional electronic music and surely make you a big hit at techno parties.

Sordid Sound System & Sutja Gutiérrez
Bend Your Standards EP

The new Global Warming imprint’s very first split record, Bend Your Standards sees two artists take a brace of tracks on either side of a 12” EP. Scottish artist Sordid Sound System gets futuristic and psychedelic on side one, while Sutja Gutiérrez spins a nightmarish web of sounds on the reverse. 

LEVL
LEVL #1

Warp’s dancey offshoot Arcola are no doubt proud to bring you this EP by an artist known only as LEVL. Their trade is drum & bass… with a twist. A big twist really; the breaks and other staples inhabit heavy, uneasy atmospheres of delay, reverb, discordant drones and grain. Spook & bass. Produced by Joe Baker, Dylan Brownswood and Felix Krone AKA Forest Drive West, DB1 and Felix K.

Meyers
Struggle Artist

Justin C. Meyers, or just Meyers, here documents his lived experience of late capitalism through the medium of electronic sound, combining beautiful textures with an air of melancholy and tricksy sequencing moves. Struggle Artist is an intriguing listen, always walking the knife edge of pleasure and darkness. LP release on Shelter Press.

Synkro & Arovane / Marenn
Transmission / Get Together

Confirmed vintage synth addict Joe Synkro McBride hot swaps a pair of collaborators for his own imprint. Uwe Zahn a.k.a. Arovane’s contributions to the A-side help bring about some Solar Fields-esque melancholy downtempo. Over on the B, dub skanks lead in for some atmospheric drum ’n’ bass with Marenn Sukie.

East Man & Walton
Horse Mouth / Gunshot

East Man (Anthoney Hart) kicked off Hi Tek Sounds back in 2018 with his own Stop Flapping Your Gums EP. The label’s second drops sees Hart back in East Man mode and mixing it with Eski-techno specialist Walton. Their collaboration yields expected results - both ‘Horse Mouth’ and ‘Gunshot’ are po-faced soundsystem bangers full of snatched hypeman vocals, ‘Pulse X’ bass beats and rumbling sub.

Posthuman
Cobalt Thorium G / Derek Carr Remix

First time releases on Weapons Of Desire for both Posthuman and Derek Carr here. 'Cobalt Thorium G' is an acid stomper by the former which the latter has a bit of fun with for his remix. The title is a reference to a particularly devastating radioactive compound described in Dr. Strangelove. These tracks will similarly lay waste to dancefloors.

Jonathan Sharp
Divided Time

Divided Time by sound designer and composer, Jonathan Sharp is a collection of pieces inspired and written for a collection of photographs he found that were taken between 1970 and 1977. Using piano and gentle electronic sounds, Sharp attempts to relive the photo in sound. Fans of Virginia Astley and Mark Peters will find this to be a joy.

Interpol
El Pintor - Remixes

Having run out of anagrams for their own name, NY post-punks Interpol now look to other artists to create them for their music. If you ever wanted to know what one of their sounds would sound like run through by sample goblin Panda Bear, look no further; we've also got edits by industrial dance crew Factory Floor, fuzz droner Tim Hecker and the Field, among others. Maybe they can help Interpol be less bored with themselves.

Rival Consoles
Sonne

Rival Consoles is otherwise known by his non-robot name, Ryan Lee West, a dude with a lot of electronic equipment who makes some truly subversive IDM. His new EP, entitled 'Sonne', contains six original tracks based around analogue synths which act to create his rhythms. West is obsessed with the synthesis of music and colour which makes for a record developing in many different sonic shades: it's best called lush.
  • Genre(s):

Andre Bratten
Pax Americana

My biggest regret in this job is not keeping tabs of the number of press releases that mention 'brexit' or 'Trump'. From Andre Bratten's ironically titled Pax Ameircana I'm sure you can guess which category this falls into. The album is also inspired by Bratten's move to the suburbs, that offered a clean slate and the opportunity to hone in on early influences like Autechre and Boards of Canada. On Smalltown Supersound.
  • Genre(s):

Kevin Richard Martin
Sirens

Kevin Richard Martin is of course the man behind Techno Animal, God, King Midas Sound and of course The Bug. This strike out under his own name is the debut on wax of a new work which was made to document the feelings Kevin had around the delivery, receipt and early days of his first child. The record is therefore tumultuous, emotional and at times heartbreaking. Lawrence English realises a long held dream by releasing it on his Room40 label.   

Joe Meek
I Hear A New World

Joe Meek’s amazing vision of spacey DIY strange-pop is beautifully represented on his 1960 album I Hear A New World: An Outer Space Music Fantasy, reissued here by Poppydisc. Meek was the master of getting unusual effects out of cheap (or no) equipment, his natural curiosity and ingenuity shining through in every sound.

S S S S
Walls, Corridors, Baffles

Walls, Corridors, Baffles. What do these three things have in common? Uh, think we'll leave that one up to you. What they are together is the debut album from S S S S, a Swiss producer who's just as happy creating morbid electroacoustic pieces as he is chucking out a breakbeat. FFO: materiality. On Präsens Editionen.

Kelly Lee Owens
Let It Go

Kelly Lee Owens gives a proper 12” release to Let It Go, a juicy banger previously only heard in the bowels of Fabric. A rubbery rhythm bounces along with vigour and confidence, giving way to the breathy titular vocal. The track is supported by another exclusive cut, Omen. 12” on Smalltown Supersound.

E.R.P. / Duplex
FR-DPX

Split 12" between E.R.P. and Duplex on Frustrated Funk. The a-side features a proper hefty dancefloor weapon from E.R.P., sneaky drums making way for a proper crunchy bass line. On the flip is more spaced out affair from Duplex. All whooshing synths and that. Would make for a decent ambient tune if not for the drums.

Daniel Brandt
Channels

Daniel Brandt (of arpeggio-techno krafters Brandt Brauer Frick) is back for another round of restless, jittery rhythms with Erased Tapes. Channels seems to follow on from last year’s Eternal Something, being of an acoustic-electronic hybrid tapestry of instruments (pianos, brass, bass, strings), synthesisers and prepared objects resulting in animated, melodically rich leftfield dance tunes.

Pablo's Eye
Dark Matter

Third part in an anthology series that celebrates the work of Belgian group Pablo’s Eye. ‘Dark Matter’ is a music of hulking grooves buried amidst the haze, connecting multiple strands of the 90s dance explosion. The 12-track archival compilation is being put out by the label STROOM, this trilogy hopefully pulling the project out of historical obscurity.

Mort Garson
Mother Earth's Plantasia

Mort Garson was a pioneer of electronic music in the 1960s and an early user of Robert Moog's synthesizer. 'Plantasia' released in 1976 added warmth to the previously darker and colder melodies of earlier electronic releases. By turn playful, surreal or sinister, this is a diverse collection of sounds from a true innovator.

Weval
The Weight

Amsterdammer electro post-pop duo Weval return to Kompakt with The Weight. But are they a lesser or a greater Weval these days? The signs point to the latter with The Weight showing the pair’s knack for channelling all their disparate inspirations into warm, coherently multicoloured pop swish.

Moby
Play

Moby’s Play is renowned for being the first album ever to totally sell-out, in that every last one of its 18 tracks was licensed for commercial use in ads and films. Given that level of exposure you may know all the tunes here anyway, but in case you want to treat them to a proper listening experience, here is a 2LP reissue on 180g vinyl. On Mute.

Young Marco
Bahasa

Did you know that Young Marco has Indonesian heritage? Us neither. In 2014 the Safe Trip boss travelled to the country at the behest of Island Of The Gods (Black Merlin, Jonny Nash) to explore his roots. While there he made some field recordings that he then brought back to his Amsterdam studio and fused with hypnagogic synthscapes. The result is Bahasa, an LP of dreamy new age ambiences.

Exael
Dioxippe

XPQ? That is the question. It’s also the imprint responsible for a new selection of tracks from Exael a.k.a. Naemi. Recorded in Chicago, some of these have been kicking about since 2014; altogether they cover a lot of ground. ‘rond’ allows a flicker of beats to emerge gradually from a bed of scuzzy noise, ‘untitled’ invokes early tape music trailblazers and ‘cyl reedit’ veers closer to dirty electro. Etc.

A dive into the expansive vaults of Cardiff producer and artist DJ Guy on the Unthanks imprint. 12” EP UNTHANK 12 selects six off-cut tracks made between 1993 and 1995, and although the  dancefloor is very much in mind, they also evoke the acid-drenched soundscapes that have garnered Guy such a cult following.

London Modular Alliance
Precious Materials

Always ready with the heaters, those London Modular Alliance fellows. The crew fire up the synths once more on Precious Materials, another home-run in LMA’s ever-expanding arsenal of electro weapons. Cuts like ‘Peach Hat’ and ‘Lavendah’ will transport you back to Detroit circa-1992. Precious Materials is out through Kirk Degiorgio’s Applied Rhythmic Technology (Photek, Deep Space Orchestra).

Cherushii & Maria Minerva
s/t

A beautiful but bittersweet EP here from Cherushii and Maria Minerva. The pair’s work on their recorded collaborative debut was cut short by Cherushii’s tragic death in the Ghost Ship fire. Minerva has since completed the unfinished EP, forming a wonderful queer-pop synthy tribute. EP on 100% Silk.

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.

Object Collection
You Are Under Our Space Control

The experimental group Object Collection follow up their Fugazi opera with a remarkable suite of wide-ranging homemade modernism. This ‘space-opera’ involves texts by Sun Ra, astronomers and fictional space travellers, as well as sonic allusions to John Cage, sci-fi sound palettes, and avant-electroacoustics. There’s a lot going on in You Are Under Our Space Control, though it also feels eminently personal and within reach. Out on Slip.

Tengger
Spiritual 2

Pan-Asian travelling family band Tengger return with Spiritual 2. This time, the visual and musical focus seems to be the Japanese mountain of Ishizuchi, and that one is nothing if not steeped in spirituality. Joyous new age drones, krauty beats and wordless female vocals accompanied by harmonium and toy instruments.

Martin Rev
Cheyenne

Long overdue re-issue of Cheyenne, the third solo album from Suicide’s Martin Rev. Although it was released in 1991, its origins went all the way back to the recording of Alan Vega / Martin Rev eleven years previously. Infusing the street-level immediacy of Suicide’s proto-electro-punk with pastoral pop-inspired sounds, Cheyenne is a lost gem. 

Martin Rev
Clouds of Glory

As one half of electro-punk pioneers Suicide, Martin Rev was responsible for some of the most influential and significant music of the late Seventies and early Eighties. Less well-known, however, is his solo career, something that this re-issue of 1985’s contemplative Clouds of Glory (Rev’s second outing) seeks to put right. 

Humanoid
Built By Humanoid

Before Future Sounds of London, there was Humanoid. Known for their classic acid house single 'Stakker Humanoid', Humanoid will release an album a mere 30 years after they burst onto the scene. Fast, frantic, and beat driven, 'Built By Humanoid' merges the old and new to create an acid monster.  

Sora
Re.sort

Originally released on Tokyo’s Plop Records (now known as Nature Bliss) in 2003, Re.sort by Sora (Takeshi Kurosawa) is cherished by those who noticed it at the time. In case you didn’t, here it is again in multiple formats courtesy of WRWTFWW. The album’s a blissful bunch of warm, glitchy sample collages from jazz and bossa nova, resulting in a summery leftfield ambiance.

Cool Maritime
Sharing Waves

At last! a record you really can judge by its cover. Sharing Waves by Cool Maritime features electronic compositions inspired by the great outdoors. The Los Angeles based producer took the adventurous and expansive aspects being alone in the wild to inform his music. If you like Kaitlyn Aurelia Smith, Brian Eno or Kraftwerk you should probably give this a whirl. LP on Leaving Records.

DJ Sotofett
Dub Off

Honest Jon’s serve up a stellar slice of modern dub here with Stotofett’s ‘Dub Off’. The template of dub is left the same on this release, but the sound is updated with modern production techniques and tampering, giving a sense of the familiar being playfully toyed with. There’s an amazing dual sense of clarity and dissolution on this one.

Mac-Talla Nan Creag
The Sorrow Of Derdriu

We were a massive fan of Firecracker's first Mac-Talla Nan Craeg release, a record that curve-balled our expectations on the label to release good house bangers via an archaeological dig of Scotland's ancient landscape. One can only assume that participating artists Hoch Ma Toch, Other Lands and Lord Of The Isles have been up on the highlands drinking more whiskey as they've now got The Sorrow of Derdrilu to give us, another sound collage created through found sound, synths and traditional song study. They claim this one is more narratively driven, based on particular ancient tales rather than inferred from simply hanging out in the countryside.

Phil MFU
Hot Space

Described as “an English phenomenon”, Man From Uranus - working here as Phil MFU - is eccentric in the true sense, before the word had been co-opted for a bland kind of twee quirky Englishness. On ‘Hot Space’, he’s interested in a kind of “outer space funk” and achieves this in a very rudimentary but brilliant D.I.Y fashion, with the tools of live bass, drums, and modular synths.

Suzanne Ciani
Flowers Of Evil

Finders Keepers have managed to dig out an entirely unheard and unreleased Suzanne Ciani piece from 1969: what glory days these are. Flowers Of Evil is inspired by Charles Baudelaire’s famed work of the same name, though he didn’t have a Buchla synthesizers to work with, and Ciani does. Great to be able to hear this piece at last, fifty years on.

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. 

Young Marble Giants
Colossal Youth

Young Marble Giants made just one album but it was a solid gold classic. Colossal Youth pretty much invented the fact that you could play songs slow and quietly with minimal instrumentation. It's a brilliant patchwork on clicking drum machines, ticking guitars and comical organs. Topped off of course by Alison Statton's remarkable voice. 

Ami Shavit
Yom Kippur 1973

A wonderful piece of electronic sound magic, recently unearthed from the archives and now released for the first time ever. Yom Kippur 1973 is the work of Israeli artist Ami Shavit, and it's a deep spiritual trip through worlds of vintage synthesisers and shimmering flutes. Reminded me of a few moments from Tarkovsky soundtracks. It’s Sub Rosa who have done us all the favour of releasing this one.

Pantsula! - The Rise of Electronic Dance Music in South Africa, 1988-90

Pantsula! is the name of South Africa’s 80’s dance underground culture, which grew out from the bubblegum and US-style disco, taking those starting points into even more electronic territory.

Georgia
Immute

With one of the most sumptuous album covers I've seen for a while, this new record from New York duo Georgia is an exploration of experimental electronic music. Although their name is not exactly SEO-optimised, do try and listen to this album when it comes out. I predict modular synth noodling, drum machines, and plenty of weird textures.

Roman Flügel
Themes

LA label ESP Institute (Moscoman, Young Marco) drops the latest LP from Roman Flügel. Themes is a surprising left-turn from Flügel in the sense that very few of the dozen tracks here make overtures to the dancefloor. Instead what we get is a collection of electronic compositions pitched somewhere between ambient techno, electroacoustic music and the twinkling electronica of Boards Of Canada.

Ruth White
Flowers Of Evil

Extremely early electronic music here from genius autodidact Ruth White. Released in 1969, Flowers Of Evil takes all the possibilities that were present before electronic music was properly codified and channels them into something eerie and unsettling. White took readings of Charles Baudelaire's poetry as a foundation to build a music that will haunt you for weeks.

Floating Points
People's Potential / Shark Chase

Limited edition 12” vinyl re-issue of a 2010 AA-side single from English electronic artist Sam Shepherd, a.k.a. Floating Points. ‘People’s Potential’ is reminiscent of prime-time Herbie Hancock but with a contemporary twist, while ‘Shark Chase’ on the flip-side is a slice of house-inflected electro-jazz.

Factory Floor
Transform / Wonder

"Just the two of us" sang Gabriel Gurnsey and Nik Colk last year as they realised that their original four piece had been whittled down to a two piece.  The press release talks of heavy bass grooves and scattered percussion which is just about par for the course with Factory Floor though B side 'Wonder' is a more hushed affair with an atmospheric wash of synths.

The Orb
Cow / Chill Out, World!

Following the success of 2015’s Moonbuilding 2703 AD, The Orb return with their 14th studio album, Cow / Chill Out, World! Known for their genre-bending abilities and being equally comfortable with an experimental take on sound as they are with club-friendly beats, The Orb’s latest effort is an attempt at an ambient record.

Fabio Orsi
Sterminato Piano

The tireless Fabio Orsi’s new one came about after returning to Puglia, Italy after eight years of Berlin-ing. That’s bound to affect your creations a bit. While much of his previous work has concentrated on arrangements of drones, pads and field recordings, Sterminato Piano is a pair of slow-burning arpeggi-synth electronica tunes with unexpectedly heavy rhythms. Still characteristically dreamy, but certainly a touch more alert.

Georgia
Time

At the time of writing it’s 08:13 in Atlanta and 17:13 in Tbilisi. This particular Norman Records™ description writer found out both of these things before he got any info on Georgia’s Time. It turns out that this duo are actually from New York City and make a highly idiosyncratic brand of off-kilter electronica compositions. There are shades of Zuli’s avant-hop, the brain-bending beats of early Flying Lotus and FaltyDL’s organic rhythms to Time, but really this one’s out on its own. This LP has been released via the dependable Firecracker Recordings (Lord Of The Isles, DJ Sports).

Eleh
Home Age

More ultra-refined minimal synthesis from Eleh in a deluxe edition on Important Records. Created using Serge STS synthesisers, these three new works explore the notion of potential musical meanings (such as perceptions of musical tonality and rhythm) from non-musical sources. Whether a surface-level aesthetic work, a study of the cultural production of musical semantics or any depth of analysis in between, this one respectfully affords all sorts of enjoyment.

XOA
Way West

XOA is the project of London producer Nick Tyson. Way West is his debut album. He mixes classic and retro electronics and beats and finds melodies from somewhere in outer space. He uses three fab female vocalists to help his cause, who all also happen to be friends of his: Hollie Cook, Lulu Jones and Ruby Wood from Submotion Orchestra. Tyson believes the personal connection he has with his collaborators helps the process and the outcome. LP on Five Easy Pieces.

Bliss Signal
Bliss Signal

Surge, the first single off Bliss Signal’s self-titled debut, sounds like a collaboration between Deafheaven and Dag Rosenqvist. In reality it's James Kelly (Altar of Plagues) and Mumdance who are working together. The result, as far as we can tell, sounds like a death-metal remix of some very soulful ambient. And it's pretty tasty.

Leafcutter John
Yes! Come Parade With Us

Back in 2017, Leafcutter John captured a number field recordings collected while hiking across a hefty sixty miles stretching out across Norfolk’s coastal path. The resulting album, 'Yes! Come Parade With Us' - released by Border Community - features these field-recordings as a bedrock, while a kind of deeply English take of cosmic kosmische synth players over top, with aid from musician friends Tom Skinner and Sebastian Rochford.
