ISAN
Lamenting Machine

ISAN are pioneering electronic duo Anthony Ryan and Robin Saville. Lamenting Machine is their ninth album and first for three years. The pair are innovators in the world of electronica and have, in the past, been likened to Boards of Canada, Aphex Twin and Ulrich Schauss, so with comparisons like that, you know what to do. (Hint: add to cart)

Jonathan Scherk & Daniel Majer
It's Counterpart

Jonathan Scherk & Daniel Majer are a pair of musicians from in and around the post-rock scene in Vancouver. They are both solo artists in their own right, but on It’s Counterpart, seem to have found that their two styles are able to blend together.

John Roberts
Can Thought Exist Without The Body

Pop Ambient 2001

2001 eh? Pretty bleak. Pop Ambient's long running series of electronica compilations would probably provide the perfect atmospheric soundtrack to those strange days. No household names on this 2001 version now available for the first time on vinyl just an immersive and deeply ambient collection of tracks.

Institute Of Sonology 1959-1969

Compilations with dates in their title are always the best compilations. Fact. Compilations with dense, dry scientific language in the title, even more so. This is why 'Institute Of Sonology 1959-1969' is a delicious prospect. Full of early electronic music experiments done in a studio complex at the Institute of Sonology in Utrech, this double LP sounds like a thrilling trip back in time to when the idea of music made by machines promised a truly brave new world. 

Jacques Greene
Dawn Chorus

Dawn Chorus by Jacques Greene is an album of stirring yet hazy sounds. He has used more collaborators than ever before. Guests include Brian Reitzell, Oliver Coates, Juliana Barwick and rapper Cadence Weapon. His debut album, Feel Infinite, was club focused, whilst Dawn Chorus is the album you’d turn to afterwards.

Trevor
Becoming A Bed

Melbourne-based Total Control drummer James Vinciguerra releases his debut solo album as Trevor, titled Becoming A Bed, via Alter Records.

Dietrich is known as one half of Second Woman with Joshua Eustis from Norman faves Telefon Tel Aviv and as one half of experimentalists. Belong.

Umwelt
Superior Life Forms

French electronic musician and producer Umwelt is known for his love of analogue sound, delivered in a raw and often ferocious fashion. He is the founder of Rave Or Die and New Flesh Records. His new album for Midnight Shift, Superior Life Forms is no let down in terms of his signature sound. 6-tracks of destructiveness.

Boy Harsher
Country Girl Uncut

Massachusetts-based synthwave duo Boy Harsher released the four track EP Country Girl in 2017. Now we have Country Girl Uncut - the original EP plus four previously unreleased tracks.

Astrid Sonne
Cliodynamics

Cliodynamics is the second album by Danish electronic composer Astrid Sonne. It also serves as a sequel to her debut album Human Lines. The album sees her refining her practice, once again placing the viola central in her work. This time she has added four vocalists, who bring more emotional depth to her work.

Rival Consoles
Night Melody

Night Melody is an album of night melodies, put together in both a metaphorical long night of the soul (following the break-up of a long relationship) and the literal long nights of winter. This is a welcome new side to Rival Consoles, with a great depth of heart underneath the dancing synths. 12” on Erased Tapes.

Stephen Mallinder
Um Dada

It wouldn’t really be accurate to say that we’ve been waiting a long time for a Stephen Mallinder solo LP. This is because the Cabaret Voltaire man’s last (and previously only) album Pow-Wow came out a full 37 years ago, way back in 1982, and as such most of us had stopped holding out for a follow-up. Now we’re pleased to tell you that 1) there is one, 2) it’s called Um Dada and 3) it’s good. This is a record of sprightly oddball techno-tronica that’s not dissimilar to Mouse On Mars or Matmos. Um Dada is out via Dais (Drab Majesty, SRSQ). Please note that the CD release contains two tracks that don't appear on the vinyl editions.

Mosca
Touchie Riddim EP

FLUF 29 is Touchie Riddim EP by Mosca, a sequence of four extrapolations that invoke the spirit and sound of early 00s grime. These finely-calibrated trouser flappers walk the long line between bone-realigning bass weight and synapse-firing upper-register tones, each hit tuned to provoke a physical response. Rhythms coagulate and dissolve simultaneously, all the while brewing sweet dread that occupies the listening space. Your room, your head.

Brown Irvin
Run Me That Soul

More moribundly known as Richard Brown, Brown Irvine returns to Motion Ward with a limited and shadowy two tracker which promises some squelchy dubbed out dancefloor on the A side whilst over on the flip you get some dreamy ambience to cleanse yourself after the grimy upbeats. The old one/two upbeat A, downtempo flip. Perfect.

808 State
Transmission Suite

Once hilariously misnamed Bob State by someone at Top of the Pops, Manchester's legendary electronic pioneers 808 State return with their first album since 2002. They recorded this at the old Granada studios in their home town so expect some of that rain-lashed industrial heritage to have rubbed off on their atmospheric Detroit influenced techno. A welcome return.

Marcus Schmickler
Particle/Matter-Wave/Energy

Marcus Schmickler is an experimental producer with a 50+ record discography behind him. The latest in a long line of releases is 'Particle/Matter-Wave/Energy' - a work in which techno and noise meet head on. It is one 37 minute long piece, split into two parts - 'Particle/Matter' and 'Wave/Energy' one on each side of the record. On Kompakt.

Only Now
Captivity

Souk Records snapped up the acclaimed Only Now - a.k.a. musician Kush Arora - after a trio of self-released records earlier in 2019. Built from five tracks, Captivity is a whirling cloud of riotous broken beat and heavenly atmospherics that’s reminiscent of the best Warp releases and the likes of F**k Buttons.

Emika
Falling In Love With Sadness Remixes

A remix EP of tracks from Emika’s sixth studio album Falling In Love With Sadness, released late last year for World Mental Health Day. British post-dubstep producer Pinch turns ‘Eternity’ into something cinematic; techno star Julia Govor opens ‘Run’ up and finds new depths; veteran Rebekah turns the title track into a piece of dark techno; and Headless Horseman almost completely revamps ‘Wash It All Away’. Released on green coloured 12” vinyl.

Special Request
Offworld

The third of four albums expected in 2019 alone by Leeds producer Special Request, a.k.a. Paul Woolford. From his residency at legendary Leeds house night Back To Basics to his involvement on the soundtrack of Blade Runner 2049, Woolford’s artistry is hugely diverse, and this latest double-album Offworld is another demonstration of that. 

REQ / Rob Euroh
TDK

Brighton-based producer, DJ and graffiti artist REQ AKA Ian Cassar and turntablist Rob Euroh were part of the TDK crew which stood for The Dusty Knights or Tea Drinkers Crew, depending on who you ask. The name was also a famous brand of cassette that a significant part of many people's collection existed on back in the day. The cassette album goes back to the 90s - early ‘00s featuring evocative b-boy, lino breakdancing stuff alongside some high energy dancefloor bangers.

James McVinnie / Tom Jenkinson
All Night Chroma

Composed by Tom Jenkinson of Squarepusher fame and performed by renowned organist James McVinnie, All Night Chroma came about after a commission from No-Nation with PRSF for Music. The songs debuted as ‘The Secret Life of Organs’ in 2016 with a short live run, and the material has now been re-arranged for a studio release on Warp Records. 

disrupt
The Recreation Room

Jahtari favourite Disrupt comes through with an LP for the newly-minted Zonedog imprint. The one born Jan Gleichmar returns to his favourite style of technoid illbient fare on The Recreation Room. A leftfield bit of futurism, this record cycles through washed-out ambiences, strange fourth-world loops and dubby atmospheres. It’s easy to get swept up in The Recreation Room, an album that recalls Muslimgauze, Cankun and King Midas Sound.

Joe Meek / Various
I Hear A New World – The Pioneers of Electronic Music, An Outer Space Music Fantasy

Joe Meek’s I Hear A New World was a quiet revolution. One of the first concept albums, this LP should have set the world on fire at the start of the 1960s but various production problems meant that only a handful of songs from it got a hyper-limited EP release. 'I Hear A New World' lay dormant until 1991 when the audio was restored the record issued in full. This new set presents both versions side by side. One can only imagine how different popular music might have been if this had made it to wax at the start of the 60s - the psychedelic, star-gazing futuro-skiffle here was way ahead of its time. Artists like Daphne Oram, Vernon Elliott and Spiritualized all owe a huge debt to 'I Hear A New World'.

Delia Derbyshire & Martin Hannett
The Synth and Electronic Recording Exchange

A fascinating release for electronic music buffs and for those with even a fleeting interest in the history of electronic pop, The Synth and Electronic Recording Exchange showcases 21 untitled tracks constructed by pioneering punk producer Martin Hannett (behind the two iconic Joy Division albums) and which he worked on with the BBC Radiophonic Workshop’s Delia Derbyshire over the course of most of a decade. Originally supposed to be released in the mid-Eighties, it was shelved by Hannett, and now is presented on the Ozit Dandelion on double vinyl in the order he intended it.

Nosaj Thing
Drift

Jason Chung burst on to the LA electronic scene in the 2000s. He released his debut album under the moniker Nosaj Thing. His talent as a DJ, producer and musician has ensured that the album that has stood the test of time over the last decade. Since its release, Chung has released three more albums and remixed tracks for Kendrick Lamar, Philip Glass, Flying Lotus and Chance the Rapper.

Floating Spectrum
A Point Between

Mei-Fang Liau presents her debut album as Floating Spectrum. Using noises of everyday household objects and her collection of customised synthesisers and other musical programmes - including a generative system that turns visual data into sound - A Point Between is much more than just a technological marvel, but an artistic one too.

Franz Kirmann
Madrapour

Inspired by Robert Merle’s 1976 novel of the same name, in which passengers are stuck on a plane to an imaginary country but never lands (which sounds a bit like a stag party I once went on) Madrapour is a series of ghostly, anxious musical repetitions constructed by Franz Kirmann, the French composer behind the soundtrack to the BBC's 'McMafia'.

Cold War on the Rocks ‐ Disco and Electronic Music From Finland 1980‐1991

Cold War on the Rocks ‐ Disco and Electronic Music From Finland 1980‐1991 is a kind of Nuggets for Finnish Dance music. This is part two in a series - the follow up to Satan In Love. All the tracks come from obscure one-off 7” singles, in some cases by artists who are better known for working in different genres. They range from the relatively normal sounds of orchestral disco to the more unhinged and experimental electronic sounds.

Michael Speers

London-based co-op collective C.A.N.V.A.S. presents the impressive debut album from Michael Speers. xtr’ ctn is described as a suite of “synthetic listening environments”, constructed from a massive range of field recordings, special effects samples and fragments of YouTube videos and clips.

Commissioned by and recently performed at London’s Barbican, Max Cooper presents his latest work, Yearning For The Infinite. Registering as the electronic artist’s most ambitious project to date, attempting to fathom the infinite nature of the universe and humankind’s place within it, it’s presented here on double vinyl. Furthermore, as it uses recycled vinyl, each copy features a unique mixture of colours.

Hecker
Inspection II

Editions Mego bring you another round of high-concept computer music from sonic metaphysician Florian Hecker. If I understand correctly, this one takes a (synthetically recited) text and continually resynthesises it based on algorithms modelling human hearing. The result is a model subverted by extremity - masochism, in other words. It sounds like the world’s unhappiest dialup modem.

Afrodeutsche
Break Before Make

Manchester-based DJ and artist Henrietta Smith-Rolla’s Break Before Make album fuses body-jacking house, waves of dark electronica, techno and electro and gets a double-LP/CD released via the legendary Skam label. Afrodeutsche has been rocking dancefloors recently with her vision of electronic music rooted in Kraftwerk's blueprint via Detroit ala UR, Drexciya etc. hence her chosen handle.

With talent like that on board, it seems a wise choice to let the producer expand on his role, which he does here. The grooves of the original piece are yet more pronounced and expanded on Hubris Variation, providing a delicious fresh piece of the puzzle. 12” on Ambarchi’s Black Truffle.

Ben Vince & Jacob Samuel
I'll Stick Around

Recent records from both Ben Vince and Jacob Samuel have found the pair experimenting with electronics and whatnot, but this new collaborative LP I’ll Stick Around sees them getting back to basics. 'Basics' for this saxophonist and pianist still count as an expansive free composition-style that combines classic avant-jazz stylings with post-minimalism and the cerebral expanses of discrete music, but you get what we mean - they’re using wood-and-metal instruments again rather than bleep-bloop toys.

Colin Potter
The Where House?

Nurse With Wound, Current 93, Organum, Other Bands - tireless sound-maverick Colin Potter has worked with them all, and knocked out an overwhelming stream of his own material since 1980 right up to the present day. The Where House? is one of his first releases, now remastered for vinyl by Dark Entries and sounding immense. Gluttonous bass and fringe synth in ‘Yoursmine’ are followed by choral drones of ‘Alleys’ and it only gets weirder from then on. Super industrial/post punk electronic experiments.

Rex Ilisivii
Fool For Love

Shrouded with mystery and missing details, this 23-minute-long take from Serbian creative Mitar Subotic (aka Suba) is an avant-garde enigma. While there's nothing much to observe on its jet black sleeve, this hypnotic piece is best served to closed eyes - allowing the listener to slip away into Subotic's mystical universe.

Telefon Tel Aviv's 2001 era album Fahrenheit Fair Enough was to these ears one of the greatest electronic albums of the era. Two further albums followed but following the death of founder member Charlie Cooper in 2009  Telefon Tel Aviv ceased trading. Now over a decade later, surviving member Josh Eustis has re-ignited the project for a long awaited fourth album. If it's even half as good as that debut then we are all in for a treat.

Tillman’s voice and Powell’s mid-range, synthetic gruff forms a complete synthesis across these six tracks. The release is limited to a one-off, 1500 copy run.

Turn Off The Light EP

London Modular Alliance is an alliance of three men in London who like modular synthesisers a lot and dislike computers a lot. They enlist their patched-up synthesisers in the holy service of electro, resulting in a lot of wonky bass and frankly evil rhythms. ‘Round the Bridge’ steals the show here with a wicked little groove.

Challenge Me Foolish

Here is a 'lost' album of Mike Paradinas's ahead-of-its-time project tapping into the same highly melodic, orchestrated electronic pieces that made his 'Royal Astronomy' album so remarkable.

Vanessa Wagner
Inland Versions

Pianist Vanessa Wagner’s recent [Inland] LP spawns a half-dozen remixes, collected together on the new InFiné release Inland Versions. By and large these versions retain the spirit of the originals - entries from artists like Nadia Struiwigh, Suzanne Ciani and GAS are all, to varying degrees, ambient and pretty. However, the Inland Versions rulebook is torn up on its last track, a monolithic deconstructed club reworking of ‘Struggle For Pleasure’ by Huema Utku.

It also features a host of members of Stockholm’s Drain Gang - including Yayoyanoh, Quantum Natives, Oxhy and Gaika.

Ellipsis is a set of deep, brooding minimal electronic compositions from London-based producer Ose (Ewan Fisher). On this, his debut LP, Fisher makes degraded and widescreen drones that often crescendo into cacophonies by the end. Sparse, mournful pianos add further pathos to the proceedings. If you blended Sigur Ros, Ben Frost and bvdub you might end up with something like Ose’s Ellipsis.

Thom Yorke
I See You

Who doesn't love a good zine? Thom Yorke has come through with a special edition of Crack magazine that he's curated. Thom's taken a dive into the murky world of music journalism and asked eight diverse artists, such as a poet, a fashion designer, and an electronic musician (Laurie Spiegel!), the same set of questions. Although asking the same questions is bad practice in my book, Thom is new to this game so we'll let him off the hook. Expect aesthetically pleasing presentation and a piercing look at the problems we face today. Features a foreword from Thom Yorke himself, plus eye-popping artwork from Stanely Donwood and Dr Tchockn.

The likes of Space Dimensions Controller and FireScope boss B12 spring to mind when listening to this pleasant, friendly album.

SEER
No Resurrection

SEER are an electronics duo who like the titular beer and the National hail from Brooklyn, New York. They are possibly more fun than both, honing left field dance floor techniques in their studio taking the rhythm of the clubs and injecting it with some studio wizardry. The result is a kind of freeform underground dance psychedelia majoring in electro but blending the possibilities of techno and house into one kinetic splurge.   

Free Love
Extreme Dance Anthems

Free Love (the artists formerly known as Happy Meals) recorded their latest mini album in a studio that sits half way between a church and a sex club. This setting seems to suit their music which has the joyous togetherness seen in a church and all the throbbing and thrusting of your local sex club. Like a lot of groups this year, they made the record primarily to entertain themselves and other people in an attempt to escape the misery of the political world for a few minutes at least.

In what's now becoming a sub-festive winter tradition, Burial delivers his first 12" of material since the wonderful, graceful and empathetic set of dubstep ambient tunes that came on Rival Dealer. He recently caused chaos with Zomby on "Sweetz", but this slab is Will Bevan through and through -- "Young Death" is a gorgeous abstraction and "Nightmarket" compliments it beautifully.

The music, which was partly recorded using wire recorders and AM consoles, has won ‘Best Original Film Score’ at Amsterdam’s New Renaissance Film Festival. Since Broderick’s favourite film is Madagascar, you'll find a rippin’ techno rework of the score’s main motifs on the flipside.

Animated Violence Mild

Benjamin Power returns one more time as Blanck Mass with the enticingly titled Animated Violence Mild. Since making the switch from dense ambience to something more industrial after the Fuck Buttons man's solo debut, each subsequent record has gotten more noisy, more intense, and more catchy, all at the same time. Animated Violence Mild is no different, with Power reaching for sound as varied as black metal, hardcore, and europop.

Eartheater
Metalepsis

Alexandra Drewchin’s Eartheater project continues to go from strength to strength, but it’s her 2015 debut album Metalepsis that gets a re-issue treatment courtesy of Hausu Mountain. Four years later, it’s still striking, like a seriously avant-garde take on the bucolic work of Seventies English folk artists. 

NxxxxxS
Formatted Excess

Have they really called themselves that? And how do we ask for it in store? Well, as usual Google has the answer for everything and first up, this is a shadowy, Parisian vaporwave styled beatmaker about whom little is known except that you apparently pronounce it N-Five-X-Z. Doesn't really make it any easier but at least saves white people some embarrassment at the counter.

Proc Fiskal
Shleekit Doss EP

Following his well-received 2018 debut album Insula, one of Hyperdub’s newest stars Proc Fiskal drops a new six-track EP Shleekit Doss, named after the club night he used to run in Edinburgh. The tracks are rhythmically dense enough to make sense in a dancefloor context, but are sufficiently complex and shifting to satisfy genre purists.

Loscil
Sketches From New Brighton

Sketches From New Brighton is yet another set of delightful pillowy electronica from the inimitable Loscil (Scott Morgan). Morgan’s blend of downtempo electronics, ambient music and dub techno has influenced artists like Edward and Nicolas Jaar, but when he’s on form there are very few other artists who can craft soundscapes as wintry or as beautiful. And on this, his sixth LP, Morgan is once again on form.

Noah Gibson
Krasch 2 (Convextion & E.R.P. Remixes)

Noah Gibson offers up two remixes of his track 'Krasch 2' on Krasch Records. Both remixes come from Dallas, Texas producer Gerard Hanson - the first mix is Hanson in techno mode as Convextion, and is almost soothing, as it's utterly slathered in white noise. Then we get him switching up into electro mode under his E.R.P. handle where he manages to find the acid within. A very interesting pairing of remixes.

Spacetime Continuum / Scanner / Ross 154 / Leo Anibaldi
DE:10.07

DE:10.07 is the 7th EP in the 10 Years De:Tuned series. Here we have four tracks of ambient techno from a highly respected quartet of producers: Spacetime Continuum, Scanner, Ross 154 and Leo Anibaldi. This uplifting EP perfectly blends the old and the new and is likely to cure what ails ya, so give it a go. 

Oliver Coates / S P A T I A L
Decouple ][ Series

OOH-Sounds’ Decouple ][ series has already seen contributions from artists like Dale Cornish and Georgia, but their latest pairing may be the juiciest yet. Cello savant Oliver Coates handles the A-side with the four-part work ‘Path in, J Lover One, Yomi, Umbo’ while Spatial serves up post-techno abstractions on the flip. Challenging but not unwelcoming, this Decouple ][ series instalment is one to check if you’ve dug Oberman Knocks or Shapednoise in the past.

Mapstation
Present Unmetrics

Synonymous with the likes of Pick Up Sticks, Paper Of Pins and Tiergarten, Mapstation is the electronic brainchild of Düsseldorf-born pioneer Stefan Schneider. Subtle and imbued with intricacy, his latest piece - 'Present Unmetrics' - is an off-kilter piece of free-reign creativity, forged with coherency and an unwavering sense of timelessness.

Klaus Schulze & Pete Namlook
The Dark Side Of The Moog Vol. 5 (Psychedelic Brunch)

Klaus Shultz and Pete Namlook were pioneering artists in German electronic music. The Dark Side Of The Moog was a series of albums showcasing the, then brand new, Moog synthesizer. Vol. 5 - Psychedelic Brunch, features inventor Robert Moog himself, playing an intro to the 8 part ambient, atmospheric track.

Dominik Eulberg
Mannigfaltig

Keeping his devoted fans waiting eight long years for new music, Mannigfaltig is a plea to save biodiversity from the effects of mankind, by producer and ecologist Dominik Eulberg. The new collection consists of twelve tracks of richly detailed electronica, ranging from minimalist ambient mood pieces to low-key pop.

Taciana
Tudo Faz Sentido (Brasingles Vol.4)

Selva Discos head back to the 90’s for the latest drop in their Brasingles series. Gang 90 e as Absurdettes singer Taciana originally issued ‘Tudo Faz Sentido’ through !K7 back in 1995, and the track’s melting-pot club sound firmly timestamps it when heard today. This is a sleek mix of dub, deep house, samba and that sort of ‘Beautiful Stranger’-type chord progression that was happening in a lot of pop music back then. Original producer Suba serves up a psychedelic, slightly Balearic extended mix here too.

Robedoor
Negative Legacy

Dark, dirty, drone, doom synth noise, that’s LA duo Robedoor. Negative Legacy sees the band digging further down into the murkiest of murk to find beats whilst tempering that a little with a more melodic edge. It is the pair’s first full length for Deathbomb Arc after throwing out a few singles and compilation tracks on the label. 

Basic Rhythm
2 Da Core

Lying on the faultlines between footwork and hardcore, Basic Rhythm presents a new 12” single ‘2 Da Core’ off the back of his success with the On The Threshold EP. It features a remix of the title track from footwork pioneer RP Boo, plus two bonus compositions ‘Get Up’ and ‘Nuh Ramp’.

Monster X
Ultra

If you like your beats hectic and tempos at break-neck speed then Monster X's new EP 'Ultra' (an apt name) might be for you. The insane density of Venetian Snares' music and Mouse on Mars' glitchy experimentation might spring to mind when listening to this, but the sound on 'Ultra' remains very much Monster X's own. It's intense and quite frightening but a thrilling joy-ride all the same.

Hudson Mohawke
Ded Sec - Watch Dogs 2 (Original Soundtrack)

To end a massive 2016(having worked with ANOHNI and Kanye West), Hudson Mohawke released a bunch of original material he had worked on for the soundtrack to the open world hacking game Watch Dogs 2. Featuring his trademark glitchy hip-hop beats and distorted low end trap horns in cinematic style. Released on double vinyl for the first time for Record Store Day on Warp.

ISAN + Paco Sala + R Elizabeth + A New Line (Related)
Rough Imaginary

The date 15th April should be etched on your mind because that's the day these artists killed it at London Fields Brewery. Beforehand the artists got together to create this CD of their work. They must have brought all the stuff seperately as there's no way they could have created this over pre-gig nibbles. It's a lovely collection though from A New Line (Related)'s gorgeous mellow techno to ISAN's classic bleepery. You need this.

Maps and Diagrams
Azurescens

Tim “Maps & Diagrams” Martin’s latest suite of lush electro-acoustic ambitronics Azurescens is out on not one but two labels: one of his usual haunts Handstitched* (CD) and Berlin’s False Industries (cassette). Here’s the Handstitched* one, lovingly presented in cotton rag sleeves with spore-print artwork.

Koehler
Winged

The latest drop from DISK Records (Bambounou, Harmonious Thelonious) is a set of skull-shaking techno from former Whities/ESP Institute fellow Koehler. Tracks such as the Winged title cut feature kick drums that hit like sledgehammers and hoofing great basslines offset by atmospherics you’d almost describe as ethereal. For related artists think Randomer and Clouds.

Loscil
Equivalents

For the twelfth Loscil album, inspiration has been taken from the photography of Alfred Stieglitz. This is a very wise decision, as the silvery shimmer of his cloud and sky photos meet their perfect sonic analogue in the sound of Equivalents, which drifts gorgeously along in classic Loscil / Kranky style.

Omen
Prol

No-fi post-industrial cassette synthpop from Berlin’s Omen, a.k.a. Hannah S. Elbowing their way through walls of grit and murk, the songs dwell on – what else? – life under late capitalism. Among many other things, hedonism, nihilism, uncertainty, disorientation and decline all get a lyrical look in. Highlights are the languidly looping ‘My Baby’ and the beautifully distorted ‘Call From U’.

Techno Bert
Neue Dimensionen

Repress of the 1990 techno banger Neue Dimensionen by Techno Bert. Made up of Roberto Passera (Back To The Future, Centurion) and italo-disco king Stefano Cundari (Hipnosis, Koto). Hard hitting originator techno made up with samples of The Human League and Nina Hagen. Very limited to 500 copies on Mannequin.

AN-i + Unhuman
s/t

AN-I is back on L.I.E.S., this time with UNHUMAN in tow. As one might expect from such an infernal union, the tracks on this self-titled EP are devilish slabs of body music that blend techno, industrial, minimal synth and post-punk influences. The likes of Alec Empire and The D.A.F. are all invoked in the cacophony of scuffed-up drums, yelping vocals and cheap, nasty basslines.

Eleventeen Eston
Delta Horizon

Eleventeen is a number Homer Simpson can count up to. Eleventeen Eston is the project of Austrailian DJ, producer and musician, John William Tanner. Delta Horizon is his infamous album which was released on cassette only in 2014 on L.A's esteemed Not Not Fun label. There were only 100 copies of that cassette, but apparently everybody who got a copy was very cool. Musically it gives Todd Rundgren a run for his money. Now it is being remastered for, and pressed on vinyl so you can join the cool kids gang.

Taken from it is this 12” single ‘Devotion’, an eight-minute epic of house and broken beat from K15. It also features as a vinyl exclusive B-side a cover of Patrick Gibin and Javonttee’s ‘Cloud 9’.

Arp
Zebra

Alexis Georgopoulos presents his fourth album as Arp, a name I can only assume must refer to a beloved synthesiser. The feel of Zebra is very much of that 80’s period where old and new influences from around the world were being mixed and melded into shiny new fourth world shapes. It’s also pretty funky, with some flagrant bass moves being pulled. Out on Mexican Summer.

Fennesz
Live at the Jazz Cafe

Recorded only a few months ago in the wake of Fennesz’s Agora album release, Live at the Jazz Cafe finds our Austrian hero in full flow, working and re-working sounds and structures from Agora into a fresh, juicy, in-the-moment sound-mass. A great document of where Fennesz is right now, on a cassette from Touch.

Carter Tutti Void
Triumvirate

Carter Tutti Void - the industrial music supergroup made up of Chris Carter, Cosey Fanni Tutti and Nik Colk Void - say that Triumvirate will be their final LP together. Let’s all appreciate this lot while we can, then. Sounds like … well it sounds exactly like what you get when you link up two former members of Throbbing Gristle with one half of Factory Floor.

Klaus Schulze & Pete Namlook
The Dark Side Of The Moog Vol. 8

You know an instrument maker is important when albums start being named after it. This is the eighth volume in Klaus Schulze and Pete Namlook's influential series 'The Dark Side Of The Moog'. Although, according to Namlook, the series was not an homage to Pink Floyd, it is still expansive, genre-bending, and mind-expanding, with proggy undertones and synth aplenty.   

Klaus Schulze & Pete Namlook
The Dark Side Of The Moog Vol. 7

The seventh instalment in Klaus Schulze and Pete Namlook's series 'The Dark Side Of The Moog' is one for electronica fans everywhere. It's dark and meandering with plenty of synths and haunting atmospheres. As with all volumes in this series, it makes you feel like you're wandering around an abandoned spaceship at night. What's not to love?      

Portico Quartet
Live/Remix

The salubrious sounds of Portico Quartet are presented in two different ways here. LP 1 is a live recording focussing on recent material performed in the larger venues to which the band now frequent. LP 2 expands on a different aspect of their sound by virtue of a series of remixes, including takes from Luke Abbott and Sbtrkt. Double wax from Real World Records.

Biosphere
Substrata

Fans of isolationist ambient music have reason to rejoice as Substrata, widely regarded to be an ambient classic, is reissued on double 180gr vinyl and CD. Linking the slow moving, icy soundscapes of Thomas Köner with the distant rhythms of Selected Ambient Works Vol. 2, the album has become a significant source of inspiration for a new generation of ambient producers and those seeking musical experiences on the fringes of consciousness.

Mzylkypop
Mzylkypop presents Xzyles

Led by former Clock DVA member Mick Somerset Ward, Mzylkypop presents a four-track EP of music composed in league with other Sheffield-based musicians who no longer live in the city. With its title a play on the word ‘exiles’, the likes of Dean Honer (All Seeing I), Stephen Mallinder (Cabaret Voltaire) and Ward’s ex-Clock DVA colleague Adi Newton bring Xzyles to life.

Chanctonbury Rings

Chanctonbury Rings is the result of a musical and spoken-word project from electro/acoustic folk musician Sharron Kraus and writer Justin Hopper, recorded in conjunction with The Belbury Poly. The timeless soundscapes and curiously unplaceable tone of the poetry evokes a long-lost vein of British art. 

Quench
Greyhound EP

Greyhound by Quench is preceded by a new single titled ‘Skavenger Orphan’. That track is all slick sci-fi beats that sound like they could soundtrack a city at night. Atmospheric and dynamic. Touched Music have already confirmed that all money from sales of the EP will go towards HUG Homes for unwanted greyhounds.

Angela
Fantasy

Angela were a German husband and wife duo made up of Angela and Ingo Werner. Ingo was classically trained and had played in My Solid Ground and Baba Yaga in the early ‘70s. Angela recorded two albums before being dropped by their label. Their 1981 single 'Fantasy' was created entirely software designed by Ingo making him some sort of electro-pop whizz.
