The Sight Below
Glider 10

In 2008, The Sight Below's Rafael Anton Irisarri had the extremely good idea of creating a dub techno album using shoegaze guitars. The result is Glider, an album of such ethereal and intense atmosphere that you could easily find yourself dissolving. Reissued for its 10th anniversary by the very apt Ghostly.

Shigeto
Weighted

As the snow flies on a cold and grey Chicago mornin', a poor little baby child is born - in Shigeto. That’s pretty much where the similarities with Elvis end for the Detroit artist, mind. On Weighted, Shigeto comes through with a selection of classic Midwest club tackle. ‘Fight Club’ and ‘Ooh Ooh’ are terse 808 techno, while the Ian Fink-featuring ‘The Line Up’ is closer to Moodymann’s Mahogani Music. Motor city royalty Andres rounds the EP out with a remix.

Geotic
Traversa

Blissful indie-techno producer Geotic, alias of Will Wiesenfield (better-known as Baths), with another album packed with soulful and warm beats. Geotic's albums so far have contained dance music for dancing by yourself, for staring out of train windows: dance for when you're okay with being by yourself. And based on first single Gondolier, Traversa will continue that trend.

Beacon
Gravity Pairs

The duo that is Beacon have changed it up a little from their previous two albums, setting out to create songs from moment one rather than focusing on loop-driven compositions. So should we say Beacon have gone pop? Well, perhaps a bit, but that would be to undermine the impressive attention to detail that has gone into the sound and textures of Gravity Pairs’ tracks. On Ghostly.

Matthew Dear
Bunny

Dear Matthew, thanks for releasing a new album. I don't know what it sounds like yet. I'm told that it's kinda moody and ominous which would certainly offset the fact that it's named Bunny, because rabbits are incredibly cute. I've also heard that Tegan and Sara feature on a track, which is easily the best news I've had all year. I'm sure this record will speak to your need to make a myriad different sounds all the time and in good avant-pop ways. Thanks XOX Norman.

Helios
Veriditas

Keith Kenniff returns under his Helios alias to bestow upon us a new album of ambient electronica. His modus operandi -- to work quietly, in the suburbs in the dead of night -- is reflected in the simple, serene calm of his music. It's a method that has served Kenniff well over the last decade or so of production; unhurried, using just the one mini-cassette tape machine for recording. Kenniff subscribes to Hildegard von Bingen's belief in "the greening power of the divine," and it shows in his soothing and centring work. Veriditas is a CD / LP on Ghostly.

Steve Hauschildt
Dissolvi

Former Emeralds synth wizard Steve Hauschildt returns with 'Dissolvi' the name taken from the latin phrase cupio dissolvi, meaning "I wish to be dissolved". Let's hope Steve isn't dissolved any time soon as here he presents another example of his work which contains techno pulses, synth haze, the voice of Julianna Barwick.

X-Altera
X-Altera

Tadd Mullinix is a man seemingly incapable of settling on a name. Despite releasing under a range of aliases (Dabrye, Charles Manier) and being involved with plenty of groups down the years, the nominative glutton has gone and gobbled up yet another new moniker. X-Altera, it would appear, will provide an outlet for Mullinix’s more ratchet tendencies. The project’s eponymous debut LP is a lit combo of IDM, jungle, breaks and hard techno that, despite Mullinix hailing from Michigan, mines the rich seam of the UK hardcore continuum. Out via Ghostly International.

Mary Lattimore
Hundreds of Days

Will the good times never cease? Philly harp legend Mary Lattimore continues her endless slew of good releases with Hundreds of Days, her second for Ghostly. Exploring the alien feeling that gets pronounced when you leave home, her plucks offer microcosmic and resonant ways to work your way through unknown spaces.

Dabrye
Three / Three

It has taken Todd Mullinix a little longer than expected to complete the trio of Dabrye albums begun with 2001’s One/Three, but he’s got there in the end. To make up for the wait the Ann Arbor producer serves up near-twenty tracks of envelope-pushing hip-hop. His first two LPs influenced the likes of Flying Lotus, Harry Fraud and Paul White, and the video-game clatter of Three/Three bangers ‘The Appetite’ and ‘Emancipation’ shows Mullinix can still kick it. The guest features read like a who’s-who of Real Rap Guys - Ghostface, Danny Brown, Guilty Simpson, you get the idea.

Dabrye
One / Three

Ghostly International serve up a remastered version of Dabrye’s seminal 2001 One/Three to drop concurrently with the producer’s new LP Three/Three. Often cited as one of the most important beat-tapes of the early millennium, One/Three offers so much more than mere Dilla tributes. Todd Mullinix’s background in IDM and jungle means he pays great attention to detail on the ten tracks here, while the sounds of the producer’s native Michigan get a bit of grit in One/Three’s eye.

Dabrye
Instrmntl

The third track from this record (No Child Of God) was, apparently, on a mac & cheese 'commercial' in 2015. Kind of cool being as this record was released in the early 2000's when the hip-hop scene was well and truly in full swing. Instrmntl by Dabrye has been granted a reissued from the mighty powers that be on Ghostly and is available on vinyl LP.

Starchild & The New Romantic
Language

Starchild's Brandon Cook is wonderfully unashamed about his influences: Prince, Janet Jackson, Michael Jackson. This impeccably produced pop record could easily be an 80s gem. It stays true to the style but carries important, topical messages of marginalisation and the difficulties of growing up within institutionalised adversity.

Mary Lattimore
At The Dam

More essential material from Mary Lattimore, the Baltimore-based harpist who puts her instrument through subtly-tweaked delay with astounding effects. At The Dam was inspired by an American road trip, with much of the album apparently recorded in the desert and in the mountains. LP release on Ghostly International.

Shigeto
The New Monday

Detroit producer Shigeto returns to Ghostly International with his fourth full length album The New Monday. After numerous releases experimenting with abstracted downtempo hip hop glitching, Shigeto has looked closer to home and drawn on a more dance floor focus, because, Detroit. Features collaborations with ZelooperZ, Kaleena Zanders and Silas Green

Com Truise
Iteration

As far as underground East-coast electronic producers go, very few are currently enjoying a greater purple patch than Com Truise. Amongst his lustrous beasts and glugging basslines, is a geniune soulfulness that isnt' easy to find within the hoards of modern day electronica. Iteration is his latest slice of gold.

Psymun
Rainbow Party

This 3-track taster is anything but a shallow and polished chat-ready take. Rainbow Party is, in fact, as deep and sprawling as its kaleidoscopic sleeve - and splashed with multiple genre influences throughout. Containing no less than punk, hip-hop and leftfield electronica; Psymun are throwing a party, and everyone's invited!

Geotic
Abysma

Many of Geotic’s past releases have tended towards tender ambient drone, but Abysma is a dance music record. That said, Geotic (aka Will Wiesenfeld of Baths) makes clear that this is dance music as intimate, at-home experience with a gentle lift to it. With Will’s vocals turning some of these tracks into full-on songs, Abysma is a lovely listen. On Ghostly International.

Jacaszek
Kwiaty

With four years since his last solo full length, polish electroacoustic producer Jacaszek moves to big boys Ghostly International with Kwiaty. Incredible acoustic sounds sampled, cut and processed to the Nth degree create a collage of space and place. Based around a book of 17th century poems and featuring the vocals of Hania Malarowska from Hanimal. Melancholic joy.

Lusine
Sensorimotor

Returning to Ghostly International with his 5th full length for them. Heralding from a most definite Detroit techno past and influence, Texan Lusine has grown away from the abrasive more and more, developing into an electro come IDM pop producer. Keeping the slickly perfect production and sound palette and adding cheeky groove and serenely floating chopped vocals.
  • Vinyl Double LP (GI287LP)
  • CD (GI287CD)

Moiré
No Future

With his releases on R&S, Ninja Tune, and Werk Discs London based producer Moiré has always pushed left of centre in techno production, swapping straight fours for screwed and off kilter beats that mysteriously achieve the same rhythm. On his latest full length through Ghostly International he pushes further into IDM beat work territories, working with MC DRS and “grime poet” James Massiah.

Tycho
Epoch

Epoch is the final chapter in Tycho’s trilogy of ridiculously accessible indietronica albums. Moving on from Dive, through Awake, the Californian has reached new heights in upbeat, optimistic head-bobbing songs that float on spacey synthesizers and tightly and perfectly delayed guitars. Epoch, however, features real drums played by a real drummer, lending Tycho’s songs an extra touch of tangibility.

Tycho
Awake Remixes

Tycho’s Awake was a perfect distillation of the group’s melodic electro-rock, mixing krautrock textures and dense guitars. On this vinyl LP remix album all those lush instrumentals are rebuilt by an exciting range of producers. Com Truise beefs up Awake for the dancefloor, Bibio goes avant-lounge and all the collaborators add unique touches to wonderful tunes.

Telefon Tel Aviv
Fahrenheit Fair Enough

Telefon Tel Aviv, a New Orleans act, put out their IDM-flavoured Fahrenheit Fair Enough in 2001, where it sat looking enviously at the (comparatively) busy IDM scene across the pond in the UK. But the American source gave the group access to the house and techno traditions of Chicago and Detroit, making this an exciting hybrid record that can still excite today. Reissue by Ghostly International.

Recondite
Corvus

As crisp and ghostly as ever, Recondite returns with a 5-track EP containing exactly what you would expect - chilling electronic oddities, shimmering synths and grade-A icy production. Self-proclaimed as "a bit more serious" than any previous works, the offering is tinged with melancholy. But with an ever burning light of optimism at the end of the hauntingly sparse tunnel.

Black Marble
It’s Immaterial

Black Marble are a moody outfit trying to capture the moody sounds of the 1980’s. It’s Immaterial, the outfit’s second album, is full of little pop gems that gleam from amidst the thousand-yard gloom of the production, in the same way that all the best cold wave does. It’s Immaterial is released by Ghostly International.

Com Truise
Silicon Tare

Playful synth experiments from the eccentric Com Truise. Silicon Tare on vinyl 12” is the artist’s first release for almost two years, and his sound is as off-kilter as ever. 1980s pop music is warped and accelerated into a queasy blend of synth-pop and shiny house. Com Truise has a knack for complex interlinked melodies that are almost unbearably catchy.
  • Label(s):
  • Ghostly International

Xeno & Oaklander
Topiary

Fifth album of analogue-synthesised electro-pop songcraft from this Brooklyn duo. Xeno & Oaklander’s songs are stately and aloof in that classic distant-stare synth-pop way: this could easily be a lost find from a central European country in the late 80’s, though it was recorded in the Tom Tom Club(!)’s studio in the States. Sleeve artwork by the band’s own Liz Wendelbo. On Ghostly International.
  • Vinyl LP (GI270LP)

Com Truise
In Decay

Glistening retro-synth funk, moody sci-fi disco strutting and new-age sound vistas for fans of everything from DMX Krew to early Oneohtrix Point Never, Antoni Maiovvi and even Squarepusher's more recent cosmic workouts. Ghostly continues on its quest to deliver us only the very finest packages of retro-futurist vintage electronica and home clubbing party-starting kits!

Tobacco
Sweatbox Dynasty

Tobacco is the solo joint of the dude who has done so much good work for Black Moth Super Rainbow, as well as production and remix credits for the likes of HEALTH and Aesop Rock. Sweatbox Dynasty, the fourth Tobacco album, is a set of big, lo-fi synth-noise-pop, tuneful and textured with delicious fuzz. On Ghostly.

Logan Takahashi
NoGeo

Logan Takahashi works as one of half of the duo Teengirl Fantasy, but also solo under his own name. The textures are similarly shiny and electronic, but the solo work pulls away from the Fantasy material somewhat by honing on the rhythms in close detail. NoGeo, Takahashi’s solo debut, is released by Ghostly International.

Shigeto
Intermission

Intermission is the new EP by Shigeto. The electronic musician from Detroit, aka Zach Saginaw, has been working on a veritable plethora of projects since his sophomore album No Better Time Than Now dropped in 2013. From adding his special blend of electronics to a jazz quartet to recording with rappers from his hometown. Currently he’s not sure where his musical journey will take him. Intermission is dynamic, diverse and exciting. It also serves as a transitional work between where he’s been and where he’s going..

Starchild & The New Romantic
Crucial

Ghostly International release this vinyl 12” of abstract electro-pop from Starchild & The New Romantic. On Crucial, soulful R&B vocals are intertwined with p-funk basslines and deft synthesizer playing. This is playful and energetic music that is willing to jump between genre and time period with a satisfying recklessness.

Beacon
Escapements

Beacon are a pair of New Yorkers, crafting sleek electro-pop with a lithe twist. For Escapements, their second album, they’ve enlisted extra help from Rory O’Connor, the drummer from Tycho, bringing some live percussion into the electronic mix. Released by the Ghostly International label.
  • Vinyl LP (GI256LP)

Choir of Young Believers
Grasque

Choir Of Young Believers have followed up the stately focus previous album Rhine Gold with a rather different prospect: the expansive, explorative Grasque. Big, bright R&B pop songs are the order of the day, carried across with all sorts of (often fairly experimental) textures. Out on Ghostly International.

Lord RAJA
Para

Lord RAJA apparently based the foundations of this record on a franticly explorative synth jam on in-store equipment during a trip to SXSW. One afternoon of experimentation gave him the sonic material to spiral off into plenty of colourful directions, always fresh, sometimes unexpected, but always groovy. Para is out on Ghostly International.

C418
Minecraft Volume Alpha

I hope you’ve heard of Minecraft. If not, it’s an incredibly popular game. Basically Lego for the MP3 generation. However here we have something which is very much a physical thing; a vinyl LP or CD of Minecraft Volume Alpha. It’s the soundtrack to the game which was created by German composer Daniel Rosenfeld, aka C418. It’s a collection of simple and soothing pieces with a naivety and innocence which fits well with Minecraft’s world of experimentation and discovery and makes for some charming ambient style tunes.    Available as a vinyl LP, CD or limited edition of 1000 LPs on green vinyl.

Matrixxman
Homesick

Future-pushing techno sounds here from Matrixxman, making his album debut with this double LP, though only after a rich series of tracks have filtered out over the last few years. Homesick is a mysterious landscape, a shiny one but dark nonetheless, with a driving dance-thrust behind it. On Ghostly International.

Heathered Pearls
Body Complex

Heathered Pearls is the project of Jakub Alexander, who carries ideas of imaginative architecture into his music: maybe we should think of the music on Body Complex as designs for experimental buildings (albeit with a four-four kick drum running through each room)? Either the way, the record is imminent, on Ghostly.

Various
Ghostly Swim 2

Compilation from the long-running Ghostly label, with assistance from TV channel Adult Swim. The focus here is on the blurrier, more ambient ends of the Ghostly scale: rhythms remain, but swim comfortably to the back of your mind. All new tracks from the likes of Shigeto, Galcher Lustwerk and Mary Lattimore & Jeff Zeigler.

Fort Romeau
Insides

The sophomore release from UK house diva Mike Greene promises more pillow-stuffed loveliness floating over four-to-the-floor beats that'll probably send you completely Plato in the middle of the dance floor. He's a (presumably) self-confessed practitioner of "slow listening", so if you want to know what the hell that means then get this.

Lord RAJA
A Contant Moth

All-over moves from Lord RAJA on this wormhole descending release for Ghostly International. RAJA goes in further than his previous Rubies EP (also on Ghostly). He explores tiny moments not far off from the works of J Dilla and even Aphex Twin. Things are all then mutated and blown out to make it his part of his own sound world. A Constant Moth will haunt the light in your room. Out on CD and LP.

Beacon
L1 EP

A single plumb of longing from Brooklyn toys Beacon. L1 EP is a cross-continental gushing wound of subdued heart-string-tuggers. Their softly undulating vocals, post-dubsteppian drums and reverberating synths slowly cleanse your haggard soul. They sound like a downtrodden Caribou jams mixed with some Inc. and James Blake. It's well mellow, and well dramatic, too -- it's out on 12" vinyl from Ghostly International.

Christopher Willits
Opening

Often seen poised in front of some electronic equipment while holding a nice guitar to his chest, Christopher Willits is of course an ambient musician. 'Opening' is his new record, and it comprises an audiovisual work that connects his music with light, as shown in the film that accompanies it (think of your favourite wordless landscape documentary and you've got something like Willits' film). This is, in essence, an ambient score for a film that traverses the natural and man-made landscape of countries around the world.
  • Label(s):
  • Ghostly International

Lusine
Arterial

Lusine has his roots in the heady days of early noughties IDM. A scene survivor (and with links forged to the ever quality Ghostly international stable) these four tracks, pressed to fashionable 10" vinyl platter, demonstrate both confidence and elegance. Submerged vocals and dense electronics tip the wink to both past glories and current tastes showcasing complexity and groove within a twenty minute workout.
