Skyphone
Hildur

Danish trio Skyphone have their 2014 LP Hildur set to vinyl for the first time courtesy of the nice people at Lost Tribe Sound. Makes sense, too - Hildur is one of those expansive, widescreen albums that tend to sound best on wax. Back in the day this stuff would have been referred to as ‘folktronica’, but seeing as times have changed we’ll put it in the same corner as Apparat and Bibio.

Skyphone
Marsh Drones

Lost Tribe Sound love Skyphone, so it makes sense that the label have teamed up with the Danish group for the release of new LP Marsh Drones. The band’s blend of folk instrumentation, electronics, post-rock and a dash of musique concrete is in rude health on this careful, pretty record. For similar artists you’re looking at Telefon Tel Aviv, Bonobo, Fink, that kinda vibe.

Kinlaw & Franco Franco
Mezzi Umani Mezze Macchine

Remember when Death Grips first got big and we assumed that a bunch of imitators would follow? Well, probably unfair to call them imitators but Kinlaw & Franco Franco certainly sound like MC Ride & co. Mezzi Umani Mezze Macchine is proper industrial beats and vocals rapped with little concern for your wellbeing.

Johanna Knutsson / Karen Gwyer
Oscillate Tracks 003

Oscillate Tracks presents a split 12” EP featuring two of its artists, one present and one past. Taking a side and two tracks each, current roster star Johanna Knutsson and former artist Karen Dwyer use Oscillate Tracks 003 to construct beautiful soundscapes of minimalist techno and ambient music.

Of Factory New York

Yup, it is *that* Factory and it's a benefit compilation for Factory legend Michael Shamberg who ran the US office in the 80s and is now very ill with  mitochondrial disease. The compilation contains some rare stuff from the 80s including a live take on New Order's Your Silent Face and the megamix version of Looking From A Hilltop by Section 25 but also recordings from the likes of Ike Yard, Arthur Baker and Konk. A fascinating and eclectic listen no doubt.  

Cybotron
Enter

Cybotron was of course the outfit who appeared right at the very beginning of the Detroit techno explosion. They featured Juan Atkins who would go on to be a major player in the movement going forward. Here they produce a fascinating form of cosmic funk which drew comparisons with Kraftwerk and George Clinton and were eventually sampled on Missy Elliott's Lose Control which is just one reason of many why the album is considered such a classic.  

Conrad Schnitzler
Conditions of the Gas Giant

The late Conrad Schnitzler first issued Conditions Of The Gas Giant on a teeny tiny cassette run back in the late 1980’s. Now the fine folk at Bureau B have snapped up the music for a virgin vinyl/CD release. Conditions Of The Gas Giant is classic Schnitzler fare - slightly proggy avant-tronica that meets in the space between Jean-Michel Jarre and Holger Czukay.

Coil
Theme From The Gay Man's Guide To Safer Sex

The fact that this is Coil might lead you to assume that the title of Theme From The Gay Man’s Guide To Safer Sex is a joke of some sort, but it isn’t: this is music that Coil produced to accompany a VHS sex-ed documentary by that name. Ambient house, new age balearic vibes and slinking jazz are the order of the day. Presented here as a standalone soundtrack for the very first time, working from the original masters, On Musique Pour La Danse.

Cory Kilduff
When It All Gets To Be Too Much

Cory Kilduff was raised on a diet of ‘80s movies. Therefore purveyor of teen angst, John Hughes, played a huge part in his life. When It All Gets To Be Too Much is inspired by actress Molly Ringwald’s more emotional moments on screen. Coloured vinyl LP, limited to 500 copies on Burning Witches Records.

Moon Diagrams
Trappy Bats

Moon Diagrams is the project of Moses John Archuleta, who also happens to be the drummer in Deerhunter. Trappy Bats is his second album and follow-up to 2017’s Life Of Love. It was recorded immediately after a reflective night in jail. His experiences of TV constantly showing the trouble in Charlottesville and interactions with other inmates pour into this journey from intense techno to chilled jazz.

TV Victor
Back To The Moon

Active on Tresor in the 90’s and early 00’s, TV Victor has made a welcome return in the past few years. Now Back To The Moon, an archival set that is his fourth release since 2015, arrives courtesy of Lullabies For Insomniacs (Million Brazilians, Sugai Ken). Back To The Moon is a curious collection of abstract electronic tracks, one that draws on everything from Balearic House to the ambient explorations currently cropping up on Seance Centre. There’s a bit of Pablo’s Eye in there too. Very interesting stuff.

Ross From Friends
Epiphany

I guess now that ‘90s sitcom, Friends, is trending again due to it being shown on Netflix, Ross From Friends, AKA, Felix Clary Weatherall, can piggy-back that publicity by releasing his new record. It is called Epiphany, named after his sister who is one of the most important people in his life. On this new 12" he’s gone for an ‘80s sci-fi vibe that incorporates elements of techno, jazz, house and ambient music.

Cindytalk
A Life Is Everywhere

What a bizarre and unusual career it has been for Cindytalk (aka Gordon Sharp). 30 years into it the collective are still producing uncompromising works that defy categorisation. This 2013 album is par for the course in the Cindytalk journey in being full of noise, drone and textured electronica yet still sounds as though it comes from the distant future.

Floating Points
LesAlpx / Coorabell

Brand new double A-sided single from Floating Points, aka British electronica artist Sam Shepherd. Released on the inimitable Ninja Tune label on 12” vinyl, ‘LesAlpx’ and ‘Coorabell’ are the first pieces of new music from Shepherd in the two years since his soundtrack to 2017 short film Reflections - Mojave Desert.

RM
Spazi Futuri

'Spazi Futuri' is the second album from Riccardo Mazza, who goes by RM. Mazza draws from Italy's industrial music tradition but also includes elements of 90s trance. The result is music that builds from a slow churn to something a bit more silly. Recalls the recent output of Lorenzo Senni and Vessel's 'Punish, Honey'.

Clark
Kiri Variations

Clark deals us his first LP since 2017’s Death Peek. Kiri Variations grew out of the music that Clark made for Euros Lyn’s BAFTA-nominated Kiri, and the album maintains the strange tension of that show. Clark says he wants people to listen to Kiri Variations ‘in the same way they would read a set of Roald Dahl short stories’, which we take to mean anticipating spook and eeriness at every turn. Try UNKLE out for a similar artist.

AJ Pain
U-Heads

ACC Records gears up for its first release of brand new (i.e. non-archival) music from Bulgarian-born producer Stan Iordanov, a.k.a. AJ Pain. Described as “executive information music”, U-Heads is a seven-track album envisaging an alternative existence for industrial music, filtered through club soundscapes.

Michael Donnelly
Why So Mute, Fond Lover?

Michael Donnelly is an experimental electronic musician making sound collages from 'broken gear and household appliances'. Although this sounds like a rather ramshackle affair, the end-product promises to be something magical. Having learned his chops in the band Rothko, Donnelly has decided to plough his own furrow on this particular project. Expect strange timbres and immersive sounds.

Repeat

Unlike many compilations with garish colours and the ubiquitous smiley face icon on the front, Repeat is not some tired trot through the old-skool classics. Instead, through prime cuts from LFO, Humanoid, μ-Ziq and the Future Sound of London, we get a lovingly assembled deep dive into the independent British dance scene of the early Nineties, and a proper insight into rave culture. 

ANN
Certain Colors

ANN is a musical project and not just one lady called Ann. The mysterious makers behind the project are experimental in their approach, allowing allsorts into the mix from minimal techno, elements of jazz, drone, dub and even their mistakes. 'Certain Colours' is a project interested in experimentation and embracing the mistakes we make.

Tangerine Dream
Quantum Gate

Some 50 years in 'the biz' later, Tangerine Dream have never settled for less than innovation. Edgar Froese sadly left us in 2015 but his latest updated vision for the totemic band is now laid out for all to hear, on Quantum Gate. Remaining members Quaeschning, Schnauss and Yamane promise a contemporary evolution of their sound, on a concept record which strives to translate quantum mechanics into sound. Warning: new doors may open. Double 180-gram vinyl gatefold LP, CD on Kscope.

Body Of Light
Time To Kill

Dark synth-pop brothers Body of Light are still at it on Time To Kill, their third album. Odds are they've been compared to Depeche Mode before, but I'm gonna do it anyway, because they sound quite like Depeche Mode. As an album it represents refinement of their sound, a refinement that lets them go deeper and darker than ever.

Albrecht La'Brooy
Healesville

Albrecht La’Brooy is Australian electronic duo Sean La’Brooy and Alex Albrecht. Their new album of improvised gentle ambient sounds, Healesville, was recorded in a mud brick hut among a field of growing strawberries in Melbourne. The hut provided acoustically warm environment for the pair to make their music. At times, you can hear tractors and strawberry pickers talking on the recordings.  

Modern Studies and Tommy Perman
Emergent Slow Arcs

This independent stores-only album (lucky us!) is a reimagining of last year’s Emergent Slow Arcs album by Modern Studies, rendered this time by Tommy Perman. The bucolic, naturalistic sounds of the original are given a modern electronic makeover, giving the whole album an extraordinarily timeless quality.

Ernest Berk
Electronic Music For Two Ballets

German-born dancer and composer Ernest Berk is a comparatively little-known figure, and his back catalogue is nigh-on impossible to explore thanks to the loss of most of his archive around ten years ago. Electronic Music For Two Ballets is therefore a real treasure - replicated from the original recording from around 1970 and now held by his family. 

Dorian Concept
Toothbrush / Booth Thrust

With new two-tracker ‘Toothbrush’/‘Booth Thrust’ the Viennese producer/sound-artist Dorian Concept gives us more of that hip-hop-IDM thing that he’s so good at. Combine the maximalism of Rustie, the progressive tendencies of Konx-om-Pax and the day-glo hysteria of Iglooghost and you’ve basically got there. It’ll surprise no-one that ‘Toothbrush’/‘Booth Thrust’ is coming out on Brainfeeder.

Overlook
Séance

Overlook is Jason Luxton who also has connections with the labels UVB-76 and The Stone Tapes. His latest 4-track EP, Séance, sees the Bournemouth-based producer in typically non-conformist mood.  His genre blending and straddling includes mixing industrial and ambient sound and a collaboration with Osiris label boss, Mønic

Southend’s only minimal synth punk duo Warm Boys release their debut album this August. Recorded deep in the Essex countryside with John Hannon at NO, Warm Boys is an improvised lurch through minimal synth punk, kosmische and free jazz and includes a cover of Roxy Music’s sinister critique of opulence In Every Dream Home A Heartache Warm Boys was made using:Korg MS-20 Mini, Arturia MicroBrute, Casio MT-70, Korg Microkorg, Stylophone Gen X-1, Roland SH-101, Boss DR-110 and various pedals.

Chen Yi
The: 1978 - 1983

Reissue of the unfinished album by the Chen Yi artistic commune. Thanks to their brutal approach to music, they've been compared to the likes of Throbbing Gristle, Cabaret Voltaire and Severed Heads. This is likely what got John Peel interested which lead to an inexplicable CBS contract. Turned out it was actually just explicable and CBS pulled out. Featured here are both finished and unfinished songs.

Jonny Nash
Make A Wilderness

Jonny Nash has been going full ambient for some time now, but he really goes all in on this third solo album, Make A Wilderness. A slow pace, a mixture of distant synth swells, subtle strings, and glockenspiel etc. percussion make for a thoughtful and compelling suite. Make A Wilderness is released by Music From Memory.

Datach'I
Bones

Joseph Fraioli’s recent revival of his Datach’i recording moniker continues with the project’s eighth studio album. Bones was written in the aftermath of the death of Fraioli’s father, leading to an intimate and spare album, but still one that deals in his trademark of exploratory electronica. On Timesig.

Gross Net
Gross Net Means Gross Net

Phillip Quinn, AKA, Gross Net uses his latest album title to hammer home the meaning of his music-making moniker a la Teresa May with Gross Net Means Gross Net. It could be said the music is inspired by May and her cronies too. The political mess we’re in has brought some avant garde experimentalism and dark electronics out of him that recalls Coil, late-period Scott Walker and Popol Vuh, all delivered with black humour.

The Golden Filter
Autonomy

Autonomy, the latest LP from The Golden Filter, is also the first released through the band’s own 4GN3S imprint. On Autonomy the duo of Penelope Trappes & Stephen Hindman turn in a set of dark and politicised synth-pop. Feminist rhetoric and state-of-the-nation concerns are snuck under the radar here, covered by sensual beats that draw from Italo-Disco, EBM and minimal wave. It’s all very Italians Do It Better.

Wilson Tanner
II

Wilson Tanner, who lets remember are two men rather than one, present an electronic album entirely recorded on a boat (a 1950’s boat no less). I’m sure I saw a satirical tweet along similar lines recently… Anyhow, whether or not you can hear the sea air in the filter sweeps, II delivers lots of richly-textured synth fun. On Efficient Space.

I-LP-ON
ÄÄNET

He’s half of reputable and influential Finnish electronic agitators Pan Sonic, the other half being the late Mika Vainio. He’s the Finno- bit in Finno-German duo Angel, the -German bit being Dirk “Schneider™” Dresselhaus. They call him Ilpo Väisänen. He especially likes Viennese labels (such as Editions Mego and Kvitnu). This new one for Editions Mego recalls and commemorates Pan Sonic with Väisänen’s own contemporary flair and style - industrial, dub and club in a minimal form quite unlike anything else.

Shabason / Gunning
Muldrew

Joseph Shabason and Ben Gunning, known here as Shabason / Gunning left the hustle and bustle of the city for Lake Ontario. They holed up in a cabin with their equipment (synths, saxes, guitars, drum machines) to make Muldrew. The result is a cinematic musical escape to the rural idylls of Canada inspired by John Martyn and the fourth worldism of Jon Hassell.

Klaus Schulze & Pete Namlook
The Dark Side Of The Moog Vol. 6 (The Final DAT)

The Dark Side Of The Moog series of albums by Klaus Schultz and Pete Namlook took Pink Floyd songs and reworked them for the Moog synthesizer. Vol. 6 - The Final DAT from 1997 is their version of the title track from the band’s 1983 album, The Final Cut. Schultz has a recording career that stretches back to 1969, including a stint in Tangerine Dream. Namlook was an important figure in electronic music until his untimely death in 2012.

Alchemy 4 by Bowditch is a series of pieces created for an exhibition in Colchester, Essex.

Diacritical Mark
Lozenges (Regular Strength)

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

Renick Bell
Turning Points

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

Silicon Scally
Cobalt Blue

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

Boy Harsher
Come Closer

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

DJ Haram
Grace

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

Akkord
HTH035

Reminiscent of Cex or Hrvatski dropping acid, HTH035 features time-warping beats, paranoid pads and an inexplicable catchiness to it all. Akkord is here remixed by Fis and OG Regis, the first leaning more towards the psychedelic electronica, the latter responsible for a slowed and distorted techno-feel.

Ministry
Twitch

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

Palmbomen II
Memories of Cindy Pt. 1

Palmbomen II inaugurates a new series of four EPs, title Memories of Cindy. Part one contains six tracks of woozy nostalgia electronics, with melancholy synth melodies playing out over a vapourwave void of pre-sets and samples.

Nawksh
Mythic Tales of Tomorrow II

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

E B U
Hinge

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

Aïsha Devi
S.L.F.

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

A Sagittariun
The Circle Stops Somewhere

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

Various
Scores

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

TRjj
Music Compilation: 12 Dances

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

Meyers

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

East Man & Walton
Horse Mouth / Gunshot

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

Rival Consoles
Sonne

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

S S S S
Walls, Corridors, Baffles

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

Kelly Lee Owens
Let It Go

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

Max de Wardener
Palindrome

A two-track EP release preceding an album entitled Kolmar, which will be artist Max de Wardener’s debut effort for Village Green Recordings.

E.R.P. / Duplex
FR-DPX

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

Daniel Brandt
Channels

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