Abul Mogard
Above All Dreams

Who is Abul Mogard? We're inclined to believe the elaborate backstory of an old Serbian Factory worker is a wind-up, but it matters not. Whoever this artist is, they have an immense talent for embedding their emotions into their haunting, cinematic strain of forlorn modular synth constructed ambient music. You can feel the yearning in these six heart-melting pieces - best keep a box of kleenex next to the turntable.

TNGHT
II

Following their first well-received collaboration way back in 2012, one which has had an incredible amount of influence on the sound of seven years of pop, dance music luminaries Hudson Mohawke and Lunice finally get together once more for their second TNGHT EP. Simply titled II and fronted by the excellent new single ‘Dollaz’, it seeks to have the same effect as its beloved predecessor.

Doon Kanda
Labyrinth

Surreal Gothic artist Jesse Kanda is, until now, known for his work as an artist with Bjork, FKA Twigs and Arca. Under the name Doon Kanda, he has started to make music. Labyrinth is his latest album on Hyperdub. His music sounds like his art looks, so with this, you can really judge an album by its cover.

Matthew Collings
Uzonia

Matthew Collings is a Scottish-based composer who mixes traditional orchestra instruments with electronics to create his pieces. Uzonia is taken from a term coined by Architect Frank Lloyd Wright as Usonia, being the ideal view of America. Collings interprets this term, in a world that has seen Trump elected and the UK vote to leave the EU, as a mix of something Utopian and something that has the potential to cause danger, or just be meaningless.

NTsKi + 7FO
D' Ya Hear Me!

D’ya Hear Me was originally recorded by Brenda Ray and her group Naffi Sandwich in 1981 - a DIY post punk classic. Here we have a brand new digi reggae version by Japanese musician and producer, Natsuki, or as he likes to be called, NTsKi. It also features fellow Japanese musician 7FO on backing vocals. The warmth of this version shows their love for the original. Along with their original versions, the 12” features a karaoke version, a Bim One Production Remix and a Cvn remix.

With creativity pouring out of him this year, Martin Jensen’s The Home Current releases its third EP of 2019 alone. Delivered on orange 12” vinyl, Palermo Traxx Vol 2 is a six-track piece of old-fashioned club euphoria, inspired by a long-defunct nightclub named Candy Jungle and memories from nights out there.

uon
Untitled

Huerco S.’s fledgling West Mineral imprint drops the second release from mysterious uon (also known as DJ Paradise and Caveman LSD). Untitled contains three tracks of trippy ambience, though each varies in tone. A-side ‘Solaris’ is a lovely aquatic synth ambience that brings to mind some of S.’s own ambient takes.

Entropy Noodle

Entropy Noodle is the first proper LP from The Nag’s Head, AKA Brighton-based Stephen Maskell. It follows a trio of cassettes and marks a step forward in his music-making capabilities, mixing emotion and humour into his dance beats. In case you were wondering, he has taken his recording moniker from the pub in Only Fools & Horses.

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.

Stellar OM Source
I See Through You

After a short hiatus, Christelle Gualdi reignites her Stellar OM Source project for Dekmantel on this new four-track 12” EP. I See Through You is like four years haven’t passed at all, picking up exactly where she left off with clear, hip-hop-inspired productions and retro rave aesthetics coursing through the EP’s veins. 

Ekman
A Pastime for Semi Gods

Opening with a beat-less backdrop of relentless and gliding electronic noise, 'A Pastime for Semi Gods' is Ekman's latest delve into off-kilter underground dance. The release soon gets going after two minutes, hyper hi-hats and glugging bass synths driving the piece into something more acidic. A great pastime for Gods, Semi-Gods and nobodies alike.

Marconi Union
Dead Air

Past collaborators with likes of Jah Wobble and Max Richter, Manchester’s Marconi Union have enjoyed a long and fruitful career since forming almost two decades ago. For their tenth album, the trio have dispensed with beats and guest spots, opting for a more impressionistic sound on the beautiful Dead Air. 

Amnesia Scanner & Bill Kouligas
Lexachast

The first physical manifestation of an ever-evolving experimental collaboration between Amnesia Scanner, Bill Kouligas and Harm van den Dorpel, a project known as Lexachast. Originating in 2015 as a one-off improvised live performance, it later morphed into a 15-minute audio-visual project and running live show. Now, in 2019, it exists as a proper studio album.

Anne Imhof
Faust

Back in 2017 performance artist Anne Imhof wowed crowds at the Venice Biennale - imagine the NME Awards but, like, for art - with her performance Faust. Now a sonic re-rub of Faust gets a release on Pan as part of the label’s Entopia series (we highly recommend checking out the first Entopia release, Tujiko Noriko’s Kuro). This is an intense listen - along with collaborators Billy Bultheel, Eliza Douglas and Franziska Aigner, Imhof creates a record which nods to Johnny Jewel, Pan Daijing, Perfume Genius and Einstürzende Neubauten to name but four. A heady brew indeed.

Floating Points
Crush

Recorded during an intense, deliberately restricted five-week window rather than the years it took to make his 2015 debut Elaenia, Sam Shepherd has announced his second Floating Points album Crush. Inspired by his massive 2017 shows supporting The xx, this record is much more immediate than previous work, as demonstrated by lead single ‘LesAlpx’ released earlier this year.

Craven Faults
Erratics & Unconformities

Well hopefully by now you've picked up the stunning trilogy of EPs Netherfield Works, Springhead Works and Nunroyd Works by Craven Faults so you should be impressed enough to get this, the first full length missive from the reclusive producer. The vibe with all these releases seems to be West Yorkshire kosmische  - a kind of rugged, rural take on the synth explorations that emerged out of 1970s Germany.

Moon B
Udaya

Composed on an iPad of all things, Moon B's new album Udaya promises to be a weird and wonderful trip through the worlds of lo-fi and downtempo electronic music. If lead single 'Udaya' is anything to go off, it promises to be full of acidic basslines, washy synth pads, and digital beats. Features a sample of professional charlatan J*rd*n P*t*rs*n for some reason.

Burial
Rodent

Burial remoulds 90's Garage/House into his own vision on 'Rodent', applying his signature production tricks to a classic bouncing and shuffling template of skeletal drums and big subs. He loops vocals samples in 'Untrue' style, adding heavenly synth to create that magical, melancholy sound he just totally owns. There's even a touch of Vangelis flavoured saxophone for some additional romance. Hyperdub bossman Kode9 deconstructs and reconstructs the core elements into a frantic footwork cut, heavily influenced by Chicago but with his own twist, in a similar mode to his 'Nothing' album.
  • Genre(s):

Burial
Subtemple / Beachfires

Everyone's favourite cracklemonger Burial is back to deliver two new beat opuses on 10" wax for extra crackle. Featuring tracks such as 'Bus Dodger', 'Piss Lift', 'NHS Rizla' and 'Payspliff' (but none of those), it will be sure to console you into the wee hours with nothing but closed curtains and a glowing laptop screen for company. Still waiting for that world tour, Will.

Jan Jelinek
Loop-Finding-Jazz-Records

Released in 2001 Loop-Finding-Jazz-Records by Jan Jelinek has sat on so many people’s wish list since because it has not been repressed once. Well, major props to Faitiche for answering the call, not only as a double vinyl but with two bonus tracks taken from the Tendency EP. Micro sampling ambient techno at it’s very best.

Patrick Cowley
Mechanical Fantasy Box

Patrick Cowley is probably best known as a Hi-NRG pioneer writing and producing hits for disco diva Sylvester. However he was also somewhat of an early electronic pioneer writing experimental electronic pieces inspired by Kraftwerk. Here are thirteen unreleased songs recorded between the years 1973 and 1980 showcasing these electronic work he recorded using only the primitive equipment available to him at the time. Proceeds to the San Francisco AIDS Foundation.

Ever popular with the world of music around him, 'You're Dead!' has a whole new roster of features and contributors to its name, including jazz-funk legend Herbie Handcock, Snoop Dogg and Kendrick Lamar, to name a few. Of course, FlyLo will also be joined by Brainfeeder pal Thundercat.

Steven Rutter

He also set up his own label,  Firestone Records in 2016. Light From The Dark EP is a 7” on Exhalt Records with each side setting a different mood, similar to his recent 12” Science and Neurosis.

Fever Ray
Plunge Remix

Fever Ray is of course the solo project of never-knowingly-not-dressed-like-a-loony the Knife singer Karin Dreijer. Plunge was her second album and garnered lots of praise so it's time to get the remixed version. Most of the remixes are by people I'm too old/out of touch to know of but one of them is Bjork so that is a bit exciting isn't it? The likes of Glasser, Paula Temple and Faka also get their hands dirty. 

Karen Marks
Cold Café

Former rock journalist and band manager Karen Marks had a short but effective career in the world of minimal wave. Cold Cafe is an Australian forerunner of the genre and was originally released in 1981. It was produced with collaborator, Ash Wednesday.

Norwegian composer and performer Stine Janvin enters PAN’s labyrinth with new album Fake Synthetic Music. Mainly for voice and delay, the album tests what can be done with such a limited (conceptually, at least) source of sound. Very exciting, and not to be brushed off as similar to Norwegian voice performer Maja Ratkje; the two get distinct results from their processes.

The Caretaker

Leyland Kirby a.k.a., The Caretaker draws to a close the long, difficult and peculiar project of analogising musically the onset of dementia. Derived as ever from those moth-eaten old ballroom samples, these last stages depict an unstoppable surrender to the advance of a barely differentiated sonic murk.

I love this job but sometimes coming up with 300 characters about some of the more obscure releases can be a struggle. Take this 7" on Youth. It's by FUMU and it's called Skinned. The press release gives a tiny bit away by suggesting it is called Skinned Alive by Prince Fumu and all the tracks are untitled. That's all I have to go on. The internet itself reveals nothing else. Probably worth buying if you know what it is.

He mixes komische, industrial, classic ‘90s ambient, and Vangelis influenced sounds for delightful 40 minutes.

Special Request is Paul Woolford’s project for exploring his love of raved-up pirate radio, and Belief System is something of an epic release.

Monochrome Daydream

If you Google Bryce Miller you’ll find out that he’s an American Racing Driver. That’s not this Bryce Miller though. If you Google Bryce Miller, Musician, you’ll get this guy who has a new album, Monochrome Daydream. The album is a series of synth-based cinematic soundscapes, which are occasionally pierced by some dancefloor bangers. Miller earns his corn by scoring trailers to films such as Doctor Sleep, Blade Runner 2049, and Godzilla: King of Monsters, so there’s a good chance you’ve heard his work.

Andy Dragazis
Afterimages

Andy Dragazis announces his debut full-length album, released via his own label Lightwell Recordings. Afterimages shows the producer and composer, previously responsible for many great records under his previous guise Blue States, laying down some of the most serene and idiosyncratic music he’s ever made. 

Seefeel
Peel Session

When they signed to Warp Records in 1994, Seefeel became the label's first act who used guitars. Since then Warp have released records by other guitar acts like Grizzly Bear and Maxïmo Park but at the time it was a big decision for both label and band. 'Peel Sessions' is one of ten radio sessions released by Warp to commemorate 30 years of big decisions.

John T. Gast
Kings X

Kings X by UK DJ John T. Gast features two takes on the track that show the power and energy of Gast in the live arena more than his recorded output may do. You’re going to need a good set up to play this on because the sub-bass is demanding and, like all good records needs to be played loud. On 5 Gate Temple.

Clara! Y Maoupa
Luna Nueva

DJ Clara! and Maoupa Mazzocchetti collaborate once again on an album they suggest is made to make you sweat. It combines Latin dance, Caribbean futurism and the type of lean dancefloor you only learn from attending lots of beach parties to produce some spiritual and tripped out club music. Whether you are from Swinton or Worksop, Castleford or Swillington this should be your go-to dancefloor record. 2LP edition one half vocals, one half instrumentals.

Container
LP

This LP by Container is called LP and is released by Spectrum Spools, but please note that it is wholly different to the previous Container LPs released by Spectrum Spools, also called LP. This new one, recorded in 2017, is of course of a barrage of powerhouse techno with rough, grainy edges: dark ecstatic club power.

Carl Michael von Hausswolff
Addressing The Fallen Angel

Controversial Swedish composer and visual artist Carl Michael Von Hauswolff uses tape decks, radar and sonar to make his music. He recorded Addressing The Fallen in Angel in 2003 when it should have been released. For whatever reason, it was shelved. He believes now is the time to release it to raise political, ecological and environmental awareness.

F.F.O.M. (aka Marco Passarani)
New Farmland

Italian dance legend Marco Passarani returns under the mysterious F.F.O.M moniker for a 12" of laid back electronic soundscapes and funky neo-house moves.  The first of these 12"s sold out fast so move quick to get your hands on this. Four tracks of chilled balearic and Italo house and cool minimalist electro.

Ben Frost
V A R I A N T

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

Cabaret Voltaire
Chance Versus Causality

Chance Versus Causality is perhaps the most intriguing of all of Cabaret Voltaire’s records. After a gig in Brussels in 1979 the band were approached by Babette Mondini and asked if they would score a film she was working on at the time. Cabaret Voltaire made the soundtrack without ever watching the footage, sent off the tapes to Holland, and then … nothing. The trio never saw the film and, after a limited release, it basically disappeared from the record. Now the Chance Versus Causality OST has been resurrected by Mute for its first proper release. 

Perrache
Barriere in Movimento

Polytechnic Youth have been getting all excited about the debut album from Perrache. The Stuttgart-based artist featured on the label’s Popcorn Lung compilation last year, creating a buzz. Barriere in Movimento is a slow burning listen, dark and industrial at the edges with most of the songs using a Moog as a starting point.

LFO
Peel Session

From one Leeds music institution to another, respect. LFO gave Warp Records their first over top 20 single with monstrous banger 'LFO'. A lot has happened since then, including Warp themselves now turning 30. 'Peel Session' is one of ten radio sessions Warp are releasing as a look back at the good times.

Nils Frahm
Encores 3

Nils Frahm is also known as the 'piano man' and indeed invented that 'piano day' you see people rattling on about every year. Encores 3 is the third (natch) of his trilogy of work exploring different avenues of his sound. Where part one was generally solo piano and acoustic and part two ambient, part three is all about the percussive and electronic side of his music. The three EPs will at some stage be available as one 80 minute collection but for now it's time to delve in to the last in the series as a standalone disc.  

Davy Kehoe
The Pilot

Davy Kehoe’s 2017 release Short Passing Game was a dance release made with the heart of Neu! or Suicide - though judging by the amped-up speed this was a heart undergoing rapid palpitations. The speed on The Pilot is not quite as physically alarming, but the synergy of styles is just as potent, resembling a stretched out band jam as much as any electronic release.

Thomas Brinkmann
Raupenbahn

Veteran German minimal techno producer Thomas Brinkmann returns with a new album exploring the loom, Rauperbahn. It explores the rhythms that come out of human-operated machinery. Using five looms in operation that were built between 1892 and 1972, Brinkmann has created a soundscape with no post production, just the natural sound and rhythm of the looms.

Oneohtrix Point Never
KCRW Session

While touring 'Age Of' Oneohtrix Point Never's stage show reached new excesses. Where previously it was one man and his gear, now he was performing with a full band, some dancers, and two sculptures. For a slightly more stripped down live performance, look to 'KCRW Session' being released by Warp Records as one of ten radio sessions to celebrate 30 years.

'WXAXRXP Session' was recorded by Bibio during Warp's monster 30 hour birthday radio broadcast.

Anders P. Jensen
Urodela

Danish composer and musician Anders P. Jensen has created Urodela as an exploration of movement in life - moving from here to there - and in nature with its ever changing ways. Urodela is made in two parts. The first part, Gamut, is inspired by John Cage’s Six Melodies whilst part two, Rondo, is based on the 17th century musical form it is named after.

When Saints Go Machine
SO DEEP

Oh when the saints, oh when the saints, oh when the saints go.....machine. Nope. Doesn't have the same catchiness. However When Saints Go Machine are a Danish three piece who seem to blend every form of music ever made (ok then dance, post-punk, two step, rap, electronica) into a unique whole which has drawn comparisons to the melting pot that Arthur Russell had on the boil. They even collaborate with the Copenhagen Philharmonic Orchestra. So damn deep.

Ptwiggs
Darkening Of Light

You've tried FKA Twigs now try Ptwiggs a completely different brand of twig who brings along a kind of gothic industrial music with heavy, heavy drums and warnings of auto-tuned vocals. It's yearning and dark with ethereal songs about poisoned Russian cities blending together a kind of post punk and electronica template. Dare we say Zola Jesus? Only time will tell.

Kink Gong & Li Daiguo
Dali China

Kink Gong AKA French Musician Laurent Jeanneau, specialises in recording the music of ethnic minorities, mainly in South-East Asia. He happened to meet Chinese avant-garde musician Li Daiguo when they both played the same night in Chengdu. Dali China is made up from recordings of Li Daiguo playing traditional stringed instruments pipa and zheng along with the cello which have then been mixed with field recordings and electronic sounds by Kink Gong. A fascinating mix of traditional and contemporary sounds.

MALK
Unrequited

Released on cassette via Alien Body Music comes this gorgeous collection from London-based producer MALK. Following up on last year’s Death From a Love album, which won the #1 album of 2018 from this very record store, Unrequited ventures even further into the kind of woozy, fuzzy territory that made its predecessor so striking, but retaining the thoughtful, introspective qualities too.

(sings) All we are saying is 'Give Us an Album'. Burial's last full length LP the magnificent Untrue came out in 2007. That's 12 years ago. Since then all we get are these 12"s of which Claustro/State Forest is the latest. I know we're supposed to get excited but grrrr. Anyway it's something at least. I think I liked his last thing. Did I? I can't remember. Maybe.

Steve Hauschildt
Nonlin

Steve Hauschildt has been long admired in these parts, firstly for his work with experimental electronic trio Emeralds and then as a solo artist with classic albums such as Where All Is Fled and Strands. His new album, Nonlin, is his sixth and sees him evolve yet further. Another classic? We shall see, but the chances are good.

Formerly known as Heatsick, Steven Warwick has decided to go his given name on ‘MOI’, his first LP for PAN in six years. This is one of those sort-of-dancey electronic records that oscillates between silly and serious. Lolina, Planningtorock, A. G. Cook and Holly Herndon can all be heard in the DNA of the quirky, offbeat and engaging ‘MOI’.
