GAS
Königsforst

Warm on the heels of last November’s Zauberberg reissue, it’s the equally welcome Königsforst. Following on from its predecessor, it has all the fundamentals of the signature Gas sound: thickets of grainy, slowed-down strings and brass ushered along by mucky, throbbing kicks into lush forested reveries.

Vanessa Wagner
Inland

The indescribably talented French pianist Vanessa Wagner - who provided the haunting hook for Aphex Twin’s ‘Avril 14th’ - interprets a large number of rare pieces by minimalist composers, including Gavin Bryars, Moondog, Meredith Monk and Philip Glass, on this excellent new compilation Inland. On InFine.

Willie Gibson
Saint Ex

Huntington-based modular synthesist and private aviator Willie Gibson creates an evocative aural homage to French writer (most famously of The Little Prince and Sand, Wind and Stars) and ill-fated aviator Saint Exupéry. Other than a bit of drumming and the voice of Emma Winston (Deerful), all sounds were made by modular synth.

Dane Law / Beachers
We Love You Come On Home / A Capella

Adam Parkinson aka Dane Law provides the first side of this split cassette - We Love You Come On Home, with Daryl Worthington aka Beachers giving us A Cappella on side two. Dane Law uses programs such as Pure Data and MSP to create his music. Conversely, Beachers uses found sounds alongside electronic composition creating contrasts in sound and themes. Limited to 50 copies.

Konx-om-Pax
Ways Of Seeing

The excellent Konx-om-Pax (Tom Scholefield) is back with his first LP for three years. Ways Of Seeing is a record of warm electronica that also takes in trap, hip-hop and techno. Fellow Glaswegians Rustie and Hudson Mohawke come to mind - indeed, the melodious bounce of Ways Of Seeing lead single ‘LA Melody’ was conceived at the behest of the latter. Silvia Kastel and Nightwave guest.

Helm
Chemical Flowers

Another chapter of frowning, flexing, collaged gritscapes from London’s Helm - ol’ Luke Younger to his chums. Once again on PAN, with the usual excellent Becker treatment and all that, the album was recorded out in the sticks somewhere, allowing for a bit more ruminatory distance from the subject matter of exhausting urban motion.

Lifted
2

More studio mangl’d jazz, improv and ambient moods from Lifted, the supergroup of Max D, Matt Papich, Jeremy Hyman and Motion Graphics. They’re joined by Jordan GCZ, Dawit Eklund, Sami Yenigun, Will DiMaggio, Repetentes 2008, Beatrice Dillon, Bass Clef, Aya (OOIOO) and Martin Casey. Cripes.

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.

Slowglide
Reigi / Haipa

Metallic, mid-fi dancefloor moods from somebody called Slowglide. These rhythms are immediately likeable, let alone danceable. There’s a trace of throwback to early 1990s IDM in the squelchy FX on some of the pads, as well as the discreet, brooding synths beneath. Piano hooks on the a-side also colourfully suggest eurodance and house!

The Future Sound Of London
Environment Five

Always good to see a nice pair of pylons on a record sleeve. This record consists of thirteen new recordings by the leftfield dance experimentalists. They have already released four in the environments series consisting of archive recordings but this is the first one to contain new stuff. They say they are exploring the space/time/dimension that exists when we die. Best not to think about it lads. Have some chips and enjoy yourselves. A few notable guests include Daniel Pemberton, Syd Arthur and Neotropic. Comes on vinyl and CD.

CTM
Red Dragon

Cellist/singer/composer Caecilie Trier lands on Posh Isolation (Varg, Croatian Amor) for the latest record from her CTM (Caecilie Trier Musik) project. Red Dragon is a song suite that is often quiet, occasionally loud, but always compelling. Trier’s combination of folk song, Chinese traditional music, chamber composition and Bjork-ish broken electronics is original and arresting. Posh Isolation favourite MC Boli (Boli Group) co-produces.

Alessandro Adriani
Montagne Trasparenti

Originally released via Monofonus Press back in 2016, Alessandro Adriani now reissues his Montagne Trasparenti LP via his own Mannequin Records (Tropic Of Cancer, JASSS). Adriani has become one of the foremost figures in European minimal synth/dystopian electronics/whatever you call it in the years since Montagne Trasparenti first surfaced, and his rep is due in no small part to this excellent album. Sometimes Italians really do Do It Better, you know.

Junkie Flamingos
Lemegeton Party

Junkie Flamingos is the sort-of-supergroup brainchild of musicians Luca Sigurtà, Alice Kundalini (She Spread Sorrow), and Daniele Delogu (Barbarian Pipe Band). Sitting in the blurry border regions between ambient and industrial music, Lemegeton Party is the outfit’s ethereal debut album. 

Caribou
Melody Day

So we're all re-pressing 7's now? Melody Day was taken from Caribou's 2007 era album Andorra and showcases his swirly psychedelic approach to music making. An added bonus is that old chum Four Tet pops up with a remix on the B side and Adem (remember him?) appears on vocals. All very good but...do we need this?

Croatian Amor
Finding People

Croatian Amor is Posh Isolation bossman Loke Rahbek’s solo project, through which he’s been exploring increasingly more ‘musical’ (as in, not noise) avenues. New EP Finding People is virtually pop music, albeit pop music seen through a twisted lense. Lots of vocals and vocal fragments, including a turn from Khalil. 4-track 12” on Posh Isolation.
  • Genre(s):
  • Electronic / Electro / IDM / EBM

Plaid
Polymer

It’s album ten in the bag for Warp veterans Plaid. Another fine set of energetic and melodic breakbeats, no doubt, although this one seems a bit darker than usual. The duo uses the triple-theme of “polyphony, pollution and politics” to springboard into varying levels of charm and unease. Polymer may also have taken its name from the legendary record label who released Spinal Tap's Smell the Glove.  
  • Genre(s):

Special Request
VORTEX

Special Request AKA Paul Woolford ostensibly makes music with minimal effort but still manages to break new ground in the electronic world. The apparent lackadaisical approach he takes to making the music certainly doesn’t come across in the high energy sounds he produces. Vortex is his new album and it is believed to have some of his friends worried about the inner workings of his mind. On Houndstooth.
  • Genre(s):
  • Electronic / Electro / IDM / EBM

Franck Vigroux
Totem

Franck Vigroux’s latest LP finds the French guitarist/composer in bullish form. Totem is a record that holds light and dark in balance, oscillating between twinkling electronica and spurts of furious digital noise that sound like the ground opening up beneath you. Imagine, if you will, Boards Of Canada making a record with Belief Defect. Thus have we Totem.
  • Genre(s):

Robag Wruhme
Venq Tolep

Robag Wruhme returns to Pampa for the first time in eight years. On Venq Tolep, the Belgian producer draws on influences far and wide including R&B, two-step and ambient. More than anything, Venq Tolep represents a desire to make those influence 'pop'. Wruhme also invited vocalist Lysann Zander to work with him again. 

Brandt Brauer Frick
Echo

Classically trained electronic music trio Brandt Brauer Frick deliver their fifth studio album Echo - and second for Because Music. Recorded at their own facilities in Berlin, Daniel Brandt, Jan Brauer and Paul Frick deliver a dancefloor-focused variant of their normally austere electronica experiments. 

Modeselektor feat. Flohio
Wealth

Proof that Modeselektor can hit the off beat just as hard as the on. On 'Wealth', their track with Next Big Thing (tm) Flohio, the pair apply their big techno aesthetic to something that sounds good when rapped over. This picture disk also features the acapella and the instrumental if you think you can come up with a better combination than they did.

Meat Beat Manifesto
Opaque Couché

12th studio album from legendary producer Jack Dangers aka Meat Beat Manifesto, named after the colour reportedly named as the ugliest in the world. Opaque Couché, released just a year after comeback album Impossible Star, sees MBM in the same kind of iconoclastic mood that established their reputation over three decades ago.

Kangding Ray
Predawn Qualia

Kangding Ray presents the debut release on ara, the new label from… Kangding Ray! Predawn Qualia starts things of with a boom, with four moody and finely-detailed club cuts for the more thoughtful dancers and head-nodders out there. 12” vinyl EP, with unique hand-paint artwork for each of the 500 copies.

Laurie Spiegel
Unseen Worlds

Big gorgeous electronic wonder from Laurie Spiegel. Unseen Worlds was composed with the use of software specially created by Spiegel for her own purposes (Music Mouse, still loved and used today), and has only had limited releases in 1991 and 1994 before now. Unseen Worlds (the label) now give Unseen Worlds (the album) the full attention it deserves, on CD and vinyl.

Penelope Trappes
Penelope Redeux

After her album Penelope Two, Penelope Trappes asked a number of musicians if they fancied a go at the tracks. The result is the pun-ily titled Penelope Redeux. She's managed to get everyone from Mogwai to Cosey Fanni Tutti to Throwing Snow on board to tackle her dark and brooding electronic compositions.

Tim Parkinson
Pleasure Island

Experimental composer Tim Parkinson loves to play, in every sense of the word, and thus a work titled Pleasure Island is an enticing prospect. This is actually Parkinson’s first work designed to be an album specifically, and it's a beguiling mixture of cheap electronic sound, group vocals, and bouncy drums. It’s a strange album, but in a very fun primary colour way. On Slip.

Sympathy Nervous
Sympathy Nervous

Since 2011, champion reissuers Minimal Wave have had their eye on Yoshifumi Niinuma aka Sympathy Nervous, a fellow with a passion for German minimalism and building his own equipment from scratch. This was his debut album, released in Japan in 1980 and putting a distinctive and inventive spin on groovy, polyrhythmic pre-techno and tape manipulations.
  • Genre(s):
  • Electronic / Electro / IDM / EBM

Traxman
Tekvision Vol.2

Two years on from the critical acclaim bestowed on the first volume, the footwork artist known as Traxman - real name Cornelius Ferguson - returns with Tekvision Vol.2. Exploring a range of different moods while keeping the listener’s urge to dance firmly in mind, this seven-track collection is sure to repeat the success of its predecessor. 
  • Genre(s):
  • Electronic / Electro / IDM / EBM

Basic Rhythm
New Style EP

Despite spending the past couple of years focussing on getting his East Man project off the ground, Anthoney J Hart has still found time to put together some fresh Basic Rhythm material. This New Style EP is classic Sneaker Social Club fare, all retro-rave thrills and pirate radio fetishism. If you’re digging that Special Request aesthetic then this one’s definitely for you.

Steve Nolan
From Water & Ream

Yet more wonderful electronic delights from composer Steve Nolan on Spun Out Of Control -- remember his soundtrack to Irish horror flick 'Sodium Party', anybody? -- in a double cassette encased in a butterfly pack from this most cassette-obsessed of imprints. Coupled with 'Ream', these sounds promise to be as wilfully obtuse as ever. Mostly haunting and disconcerting, we surely won't be disappointed on this score.

Morton Subotnick
Silver Apples of the Moon (50th-Anniversary Edition)

Many records get labelled as pioneering, but there are few that deserve it quite as much as Morton Subotnick's 1967 debut. Notable as both the first piece of electronic music commissioned by a record company and as the first piece of both classical and electronic music written for an album format, 'Silver Apples of the Moon' is a true milestone in the history of the electronic genre.

Funky Doodle
Live From Yellowknife

Funky Doodle went to town sat upon a pony, the did a show on New Year's Day and called in macaroni. Live From Yellowknife is the one and only performance of Funk Doodle, a collaboration between DJ Richard, James K and Draveng. Together they brought in the new year the only way they knew how, with brooding and unsettling electronic drones.

Burnt Friedman
Musical Traditions In Central Europe

Burnt Friedman presents his new record Musical Traditions In Central Europe, an album that plays around with some of the assumptions often present in albums with these kind of titles. Burnt has engaged with certain European peoples in the creation of this album, and his rhythms rub up against all sorts of other sounds and textures for an interesting adventure. Out on Nonplace.

Harpoon
Permission Fist

Released on CD-R and C-40 cassette in very limited amounts, Permission Fist is the result of a collaboration between Tina Hitchens and Aron Ward entitled Harpoon. Constructed mainly from drum machines and guitar effects pedals, it’s a pretty brutal and physical experience but a stimulating one! On Aphelion Editions.

Samuel Kerridge & Taylor Burch
The Other

Samuel Kerridge and Taylor Burch’s The Other is one of those records that sounds like it’s permanently on the edge of collapse. Kerridge’s productions feature synths that zip around the mix and drums that appear to be frantically pedalling, cartoon-style, to avoid falling off the edge of a cliff. Set against all this techno-anarchy, Burch’s all-too-calm pieces of spoken word take on a chilling character. Think Alice Glass dialling in some vox on a Vatican Shadow LP and you’ve got The Other.

Ff
Ffeeling

Claiming a huge range of influences including Daniel Miller, Frank Zappa, P-Funk, Steve Reich and many more weird and wonderful acts is Ff. Not a funny Welsh consonant but a band and art collective made up of Antronhy of Bivouac and Dave W. of White Hills. A little bit disco, a lot of synths and vocals like you  might expect given their influences. Pink vinyl.

Depeche Mode
Black Celebration | The 12" Singles

The re-issue campaign for Depeche Mode’s singles, grouped in box sets specific to each album era, now reaches 1986’s Black Celebration. The point at which their synth-pop was getting darker and more distinctively gothic, this set contains both 12” versions of ‘A Question of Lust’ and ‘A Question of Time’, and one for the album’s final single ‘Stripped’.

Erik Wøllo
Sources (Early Works 1986-1992)

Smalltown Supersound drop a collection of previously unreleased works from Nordic ambient pioneer Erik Wøllo. The tracks that make up Sources (Early Works 1986-1992) have their genesis in the sessions surrounding Wøllo’s mid-80’s trio of Dreams Of Pyramids, Traces and Silver Beach. Anyone familiar with those LPs will already know of Wøllo’s woozy synth stylings, part-Eno and part-Schulze. Artists such as Boards Of Canada and Prins Thomas owe Wøllo a debt.

Gary Gritness
The Legend of Cherenkov Blue

Gary Gritness presents The Legend of Cherenkov Blue, a concept album. The story it tells is a futuristic Noir, featuring murderers, spies and lovers To tell the story Gritness has produced an incisive and visceral electro-funk that has the fluidity of something on Brainfeeder. It's actually on Hypercolour.

Paco Sala
Our Love Is The Gold

Third studio album from dreamy synth-pop duo Paco Sala. Our Love Is The Gold the pair are not afraid to assert themselves and play to their strengths. As on past album the synth sounds are to die for and the vocal performance is heartbreaking and intense. Above all else they are not afraid to be themselves, relishing in their own quirks and idiosyncrasies. 

Mythologen
Antisocial Background Music 2017 – 2019

Third album by Mythologen, the recording moniker of Alexander Palmestål. Antisocial Background Music 2017-2019 has a distinctive sense of mischief and joy, borrowing strands from all the myriad sub-genres of dance music and somehow forging a sound that defies description and spans moods and eras. On Hoga Nord.

Resina
Traces - Remixes

Polish cellist Resina knows some real cool people: this remix EP takes two tracks from her Traces album and lets them get worked over by Lotic, Ben Frost, Abul Mogard and even Ian William Craig! With producers of this calibre, and the excellent source material, it will be no surprise to learn that Traces - Remixes is a great and varied listen. Released by 130701.

Various
Electrical Language: Independent British Synth Pop 78-84

Calling all fans of things synthy, this is a new compilation taking in the golden age of British synth-pop from 1978-84. There are old favourites like 'Circus Death' by The Human League, obscure (but brilliant) cuts like 'Croatia' by Basking Sharks, and stone-cold ker-lassics like 'Warm Leatherette' by The Normal and 'Touch' by Lori and the Chameleons. 

Rhythm & Sound
The Versions

Repress of Rhythm & Sound’s (Basic Channel) 2003 release The Versions. Kings of dub techno Moritz von Oswald and Mark Ernestus compiled the singles they did for Burial Mix, separating the vocals and leaving these instrumentals to do what they do best, wash over you with warm heady bass. LP on Burial Mix.

Steve Moore
Beloved Exile

Steve Moore is a noted figure within the modern synth community, respected for his soundtrack work and his duo Zombi. Beloved Exile is the first solo studio non-soundtrack album he has made in five years, and Moore leaps on the opportunity to fully follow his own path. Guests including Mary Lattimore and Emel Mathlouthi. On Temporary Residence.

Laurel Halo
Raw Silk Uncut Wood

Following several EPs on Hippos In Tanks and Honest Jon’s and three albums and two EPs on Hyperdub, Laurel Halo releases her new LP, Raw Silk Uncut Wood on Latency. The Berlin-based American electronic musician was inspired by a score for a Metahaven film and U.S. novelist, Ursula Le Guin’s translation of the 6th-century Chinese text Tao Te Ching. This blurry, contemplative and widescreen soundscape features cello by Oliver Coates and Eli Keszler on percussion.

Dunning & Underwood
The Blow Volume 5

The Blow Volume 5 is the fifth in a series from Front & Follow of split tapes bringing artists together. This tape combines Dunning & Underwood, aka Graham Dunning and Sam Underwood. The two have collaborated by using The Mammouth Beat Organ - an instrument described as "a two-player, semi-autonomous musical instrument". That got your attention didn't it!  
  • Genre(s):
  • Electronic / Electro / IDM / EBM

Flying Lotus
Flamagra

Fresh off making people throw up in the cinema with Kuso, Flying Lotus is back at it again with his latest album Flamagra. As always, the album is a frenetic maelstrom of hip-hop, R&B, jazz, soul, funk, beats, and whatever else Mr Lotus managed to put on between joints. He's also managed to fit in enough guests for a decent music festival with Solange, Tierra Whack and George Clinton appearing as well as lots (and lots) more.

Soft Issues
Soft Issues

Soft Issues, Leeds’ finest new power electronics outfit, release their debut full-length via Opal Tapes (Karen Gwyer, Wanda Group). A duo who also turn out for (among others) Cattle and The Shits, together they make a screeching racket of electronic drums, synths and machine malfunctions. This is all topped off by vocals that range from a snarl to a scream. We hear they love Afrobeat, though there's no evidence of that across these eleven tracks. 50p extra garlic.

HXE
INDS

HXE continue 'club' music's trance revival. INDS is a four track EP on UIQ featuring what the press release enticingly calls "Industrial dancehall smackdown". To my ears they take the unrepentant melancholic intensity of industrial music and puts some euphoric trance shine on it. Extremely crying in the club.

Dennis Young
Primitive Substance

Dennis Young began work on the Primitive Substance LP with Andy Gomory in the second half of the 1980’s, laying down basic tracks at Gomory’s studio in New Jersey. Over the next fifteen-odd years the ex-Liquid Liquid fellow Young continued to expand the material, bringing in various guests to build on the vaguely fourth-world-ish rhythm tracks he’d laid down with Gomory. The resulting record, only now getting a release through Athens Of The North (J.O.B. Band, Brief Encounter), is a funny mix of New Age grooves and jazz-fusion techniques. Think My Life In The Bush Of Ghosts.

EP3

Marvellous cut 'n' paste and off kilter dance crew Leatherette have started their own label in order to release music by themselves and music they like. The first release is a series of rare tracks from Leatherette themselves all freshly remastered for that crisp box fresh sound. Contains the stellar J Dilla inspired 'Maybe' and seven other tracks you probably don't already have.

Howlround
The Debatable Lands

Touch Records (Oren Ambarchi, Philip Jeck) drop an LP of phasing experiments from Howlround. Howlround mastermind Robin The Fog created all of the sounds on this record with nothing other than some loops of tape and a microphone. Stretching and bending his tape ala Steve Reich, the resulting record is a set of jittery concrete pulses.
  • Genre(s):

Zomby
Vanta

The shadowy electronic artist known as Zomby moves over to Bedouin Records for his latest 12” EP. Consisting of five tracks of comparatively unreconstructed techno that sounds nothing like dubstep - at least in comparison to his previous outings - Vanta looks likely to be another fascinating addition to a discography that’s dipped a toe in basically every sub-genre of British dance music going.

Higher Intelligence Agency & Biosphere
Birmingham Frequencies

In 1996, Biosphere (Geir Jenssen) and Higher Intelligence Agency (Bobby Bird) released an influential concert recording of live ambient soundscaping and chilled electronics atop a mountain in ’sphere’s home town of Tromsø. Did you know that the pair would go on to repeat the process in HIA’s home city of Birmingham? You probably did. With a distinctly more urban feel for obvious reasons, Birmingham Frequencies is every bit as excellent as its predecessor.

SPIME.IM
Exaland

Following will.i.am in having a name that is also a website address, SPIME.IM release Exaland. More than anyone else the band bring to mind the multimedia collective japes of Amnesia Scanner, even playing in the same musical ball pit as the Berlin duo. They also have a handle on vocal manipulation that recalls Holly Herndon.
  • Genre(s):
  • Electronic / Electro / IDM / EBM

K-X-P
IV

Futuristic synth / disco / rave lads K-X-P with a deep dive into ideas of 'depth of time, non-linear time and escapism'. Far from being a po-faced, academic, or and aloof work, this album promises to be a thrilling electronic joy-ride. IV is only three tracks long, which offers a sonic cohesiveness that is a joy to hear. On Svart.
  • Genre(s):
  • Electronic / Electro / IDM / EBM

The Exaltics
II Worlds

II Worlds sees The Exaltics (Robert Witschakowski) back on Clone West Coast Series for the first time in half a decade. Witschakowski marks this occasion with a set of deliciously dark astral electro. These tracks are sort of like the sonic equivalent of when things start to go south in Alien. No cats though.
  • Genre(s):
  • Electronic / Electro / IDM / EBM

MATTHS
Velocet

Synthy beats with a very satisfying build from MATTHS (no I don't know what that second 'T' is for). Reminds me of some of James Holden's more euphoric moments, with modular synth lines all colliding in a million different ways. Highlight is the a-side which is probably as much of a pick-me-up as a fresh cup of coffee.

Suzanne Ciani
Buchla Concerts 1975

Suzanne Ciani worked for the Buchla synthesiser company at the time of these live recordings, meaning that she was an absolutely sublime player of this complex system. The material on Buchla Concerts has not been circulated in recorded form before, so this vinyl release on Finders Keepers is something of a revelation.

Yellow Magic Orchestra
Technodelic

The sound of Yellow Magic Orchestra’s Technodelic should really be obvious from the title. The fifth album from these synth-pop experimenters is now remembered for its radical, and extremely early, use of sampling. This makes the record more minimal, but their TR-808 drum machine and new wave charm are still present.  As with the rest of their YMO reissue series, Music on Vinyl have pressed this to 180 gram vinyl and made the first 1000 copies transparent.

OKADA
Life Is But An Empty Dream

Seventh full-length album from avant-garde artist Gregory Pappas, recording under his moniker OKADA. Consisting of four lengthy pieces of largely ambient but occasionally violent and cathartic electronica, Life Is But An Empty Dream is also the first album from Pappas to ever be pressed on to vinyl.

J-E-T-S
ZOOSPA

Here come the warm J-E-T-S. This is a new team-up between serial club botherers Machinedrum and Jimmy Edgar, and on their wackily-named first LP ZOOSPA the pair use their know-how to create thick, metallic-sounding beats. There’s not really one style you can pin down here - rather, J-E-T-S have that kind of mish-mash R ‘n’ B/hip-hop/EDM sound that works so well for Hudson Mohawke. ZOOSPA is bolstered by some great guest appearances from (among others) Dawn Richard and Mykki Blanco.

Matias Aguayo
Support Alien Invasion

Chilean/German artist Matias Aguayo’s last album was The Visitor in 2013. About the only rule with this chap is that there will be dancing, and this by no means guarantees 4/4 rhythms. In fact, Support Alien Invasion seems dead keen to slip around and between typical time signatures. Aguayo’s impressive success lies in navigating this tricky minimal terrain without losing grip of the party or resembling too closely his stern, clanking German associates.

Black Zone Magick Chant
Voyage Sacrifice

Black Zone Magick Chant perhaps predictably, are interested in the psychedelic. On Voyage Sacrifice, they let their frenetic drones seep into every nook and cranny of your consciousness. Always moving, always changing, this is music one can very easily disappear into without being heard from again. On Shelter Press.

Craig Leon
Anthology Of Interplanetary Folk Music Vol. 2: The Canon

Craig Leon (who produced the first Ramones and Suicide albums!) revisits the ideas he established on his 80s records. Along with regular collaborator Cassell Webb, Leon explores the abstract and the alien to near euphoric effect. Anthology Of Interplanetary Folk Music Vol. 2: The Canon has been a long time coming. It was worth the wait. On RVNG Intl.

LHASA
Acetabularia

First-time re-issue of the 1988 debut 12” single from Lhasa, the brainchild of German ‘New Beat’ pioneer Alain Raes, featuring four bonus tracks. Combining the pulse of Detroit techno with the chilliness of film-noir soundtracks, ‘Acetabularia’ and its B-side ‘Acetatechno’ both contained samples from classic satirical movie ‘Dr. Strangelove…’. 

Com Truise
Persuasion System

Los Angeles based Com Truise returns to Ghostly International for his follow up to 2017’s Iteration. This mini LP see the producer take a re-approach to his craft, taking a fresh palette of sounds and techniques whilst retaining his signature 80s/VHS warmth, and of course the Linn Drum is still highly prevalent.

Teleman
Family of Remixes

They are a rather good band Teleman. Nice and winsome with a krauty edge. I'm not sure how suited they are to the remix format but this CD only round up of all the remixes commissioned for their latest album Family of Aliens may give us some idea. I've barely heard of a name on it but presumably this is because all are London tastemaker type artists. Might bring an added electronic pulse to their nice sounds though.  

Lost Souls of Saturn
Lost Souls of Saturn

An essential for fans of ambient house, this is the full-length debut album from Lost Souls of Saturn, a multimedia project conceived in the live arena by DJs Seth Troxler and Phil Moffa. Lost Souls of Saturn is two LPs’ worth of dub, acid house and all manner of samples sourced from extensive crate-digging.

Not Glass (Not Waving & Jay Glass Dubs)
Forma

Not Glass is the sonic space where Jay Glass Dubs and Not Waving, two of the most interesting producers around right now, join their two vibes together. Conversations about philosophers and Southern Europe inspired Forma, which feels like a real meeting of minds rather than a random team-up. These guys are doing some of their best work together. Out on Ecstatic.

Holly Herndon
PROTO

Like it or lump it, A.I. and other forms of automation are playing increasing roles in everyday human life. It’ll be good and bad, but it won’t be stopped. Tech pop boffin Holly Herndon’s newun PROTO looks to the exciting and optimistic possibilities of ensuring such changes are on human terms. The tracks were created with assistance from her specially trained A.I., Spawn. Attabot, Spawn. **All pre-orders will go into a hat to win a test pressing or two tickets to see her live at the Barbican**

Kaitlyn Aurelia Smith
The Kid

Winner of our Album of the Year competition in 2016 with EARS, Kaitlyn Aurelia Smith now serves up a new selection which is nothing if not ambitious. She has now produced a four part album which chronicles the for defining segments of life exemplifying Smith's deep thinking ability to delve further than the average composer.

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.

  • Electronic / Electro / IDM / EBM

Atsushi Izumi
Verdigris EP

Osaka based Atsushi Izumi knows how to channel his background in sound design into creating truly potent and destructive techno. Just as capable of using drawn out synths to create tension, as he is in using noisy, fractured drums to detonate said tension. Verdigris EP is pain and pleasure and released by Thrènes Records.

D'Arcangelo
D'Arcangelo

Reissue of D’Arcangelo’s debut EP from 1996, originally released on the now defunct Aphex Twin run label Rephlex. There’s a lot of Aphex Twin’s Caustic Window era to be found here. The first three tracks present distorted techno-come-IDM through industrial scrapes and clangs at a faster breakbeat pace offset by the closing tracks which soften and turn to acid and ambient playfulness.

SFV Acid
Fire Zone

Every summer Los Angeles is subject to destructive forest fires that force people to flee from their homes. For the city's residents, this is something that must weigh on them, as it does on SFV Acid. His latest album Fire Zone (released by Ekster) contains drum 'n' bass and acid tracks that offer hope and resilience in the face of such tragedy.

My Girlfriend
Apron EP

My Girlfriend - try saying it like Borat says ‘my wife!’ - are a precocious house duo from Brazil. One of them, Ben Sallum, started work on the Apron EP when he was just 15 years old. This six-track set compiles some of the jams Sallum and his partner Pedro Zopelar have laid down in the past three years. Luxurious, velvety deep house that’s not dissimilar to the output of Apron boss Steven Julien (aka Funkineven). My Girlfriend!

Jabu
Fool If / Wounds (Jay Glass Dubs & SKRS Remixes)

Bristol trio Jabu’s aching vocals, sparse layering and ripping good production really worked wonders on 2017’s Sleep Heavy. Standout ‘Wounds’ is alt-RnB at its most concise and beautiful. In the hands of Athenian dub disassembler Jay Glass Dubs and shaggy dancehall dub disruptors SKRS (a.k.a. Seekers International), ‘Fool If’ and ‘Wounds’ are given gritty, cityscape makeovers.

Pistol Disco
Organs & Drums / Beat Of The Tune

Track one from this 7-inch, Organs & Drums, doesn't actually contain too many organs and drums. Track two, Beat of the Tune, does. It confused me when I first listened to it. I digress. This wonderful 7" from Germany-based Alexander Palmestål and Sweden-based Mikael Enqvist is different from the type of music they usually produce, but is still worthy of any German and/or Swedish music collection*. Released on Hoga Nord.      *not exclusive to German and/or Swedish music collections. 

Eric Copeland
Trogg Modal Vol. 1 (Remixes)

Eric Copeland’s excellent first Trogg Modal LP gets served four ways on this remix set. With its set of lo-fi freak beats, Copeland’s album provides rich pickings for the quartet of Parris, RAMZi, Lokler and Gerry Read to feast upon. As such we get everything from EBM to Balearic house to anti-techno (Lokier, RAMZi and Parris in that order) across Trogg Modal Vol. 1 (Remixes).

Imaginary Softwoods
Gold Fiction Loop Garden

Netherlands imprint Field Records unearths a long-lost and criminally forgotten early synth / new age / kosmische gem by erstwhile Emerald and Spectrum Spools curator John Elliott - as Imaginary Softwoods. 2016 was a simpler, humbler age, and the album was cassette only. Enter Field to set things right at last.

COIMS
R Barb Column

One of the most bizarre, unique and, frankly, uncategorisable releases to arrive on our shelves, R Barb Column by Coims consists of a brace of synapse-frying pieces that sprawl over the imaginary boundaries between jazz, dub and experimental. CD and tape editions of this mini-album are available in very limited numbers!

DMX Krew
Malekko Phase Mod

Performing under various aliases throughout his career, electronica artist Edward Upton’s latest DMX Krew release Malekko Phase Mod fits effortlessly into a line of work that goes back to the mid-Nineties. Classic, Chicago acid house beats, rubbery basslines and squidgy synths are the name of the game, with four laid-back tracks split over a 12” EP.

Basic Rhythm
On The Threshold

Anthoney Hart (East Man, Imaginary Forces) returns to the prestigious Planet Mu label under his Basic Rhythm alias after a short absence, with On The Threshold. A collection that promises to be a treat for DJs, it sprawls from drum’n’bass to jungle and hardcore on a thread of thoughtfulness and experimentalism.

Ruf Dug
Ruf Dug presents The Committee

On this genre-blending five-track EP of dub, soul and jazz, Manchester-based record store owner and producer Ruf Dug assembles a cast of friends and musical fellow-travellers to present The Committee. Recorded in less than a fortnight at the collective’s own studio in South London, this short but immensely fun collection is a testament to the powers of collaboration. 

Taylor Deupree & Marcus Fischer
Twine

Twine is the second instalment in Marcus Fischer’s collaboration with Taylor Deupree. It’s a pretty minimal creature, with the backbone of the music formed from just 2 manipulated tape loops, then augmented with acoustic instruments. Subtle sonics that put the listener right there in the studio with Deupree and Fischer: an impressively effective little set. On 12k.

Proem
Until Here For Years

Back to the old style for Proem, checking in on the more experimental ends of electronica to see what can be done. Until Here For Years uses abstract details and pieces of data related to synths and such to seed expansive pieces that should viscerally delight as much as thoughtfully intrigue. Released by n5MD.

Biosphere
The Senja Recordings

Senja lies close to Tromsø, the beloved Arctic Norwegian town and home of Geir “Biosphere” Jenssen. His new album The Senja Recordings comprises both outdoor recordings and studio improvisations created on the titular island. Obviously essential Arctic ambient listening, it’ll Senja into a daze, Senja to a happy state or Senja to sleep.

King Midas Sound
Solitude

Sardonically released on Valentine's Day, this is the best one yet from King Midas Sound, once again stripped back to the duo of Kevin Martin (The Bug/Techno Animal) and poet/music-maker Roger Robinson. The tone is icy and bitter, the many narrations consumed by spiteful jealousy in a post-brakeup haze. All the rhythmic pulse of dub has now subsided, a wraith-like presence which blankets Robinson's malice fuelled spoken word.

  • Electronic / Electro / IDM / EBM

Steve Hauschildt
Where All Is Fled

Former glittering Emeralds member Steve Hauschildt’s new solo LP is a typically expansive suite of pieces, pulling in synthesis, field recordings and acoustic instrumentation to form some heady trips. Where All Is Fled wavers between abstraction and melodies, mostly hitting that sweet spot where neither dominates. On Kranky.

Kedr Livanskiy
Ariadna

After her acclaimed January Sun EP Moscow based producer Kedr Livanskiy returns to the 2MR label for her debut full length album. A solo artist with a love of synthesizers and experiments with a mix of NEU! motorik krautrock, Boards Of Canada ambience and Grimes esque pop. Dreamy and atmospheric but with a sense of urgency.

Tracey
Biostar

Vowelophobe Tracey releases his debut album Biostar on Dial (also of Lawrence, Roman Flugel and Efdemin). On it the Netherlands-based producer explores the aesthetics of acid, without committing to its over bearing heaviness. The result is fascinating, acid bass that seems to float in the air, completely untethered.

Pepe Bradock
What a Mess!

Pepe Bradock has titled his latest What a Mess!, presumably referring to the complex and aleatoric construction process behind the record. Random words, spontaneous frequencies, a deconstruction / reconstruction of Pepe’s old first record, and tweaked computer improvisations… All this and more has ended up with these two sides of vinyl, accompanied by visuals and words which you are encouraged to use to draw connections out of the music, should you wish. What a Mess!

Martin Bartlett
Anecdotal Electronics: Live Experiments & Other Recordings

Vinyl compilation exploring the mysteriously little-known career of experimental music composer Martin Bartlett, who studied under the likes of John Cage and recorded with home-made and self-adjusted electronic equipment before his sudden death in 1993. Companion piece to a separately released CD-only compilation Ankle On: Electronic & Orchestral Works.
