Ziúr
ATØ

One of the great products of the Berlin club scene over the last few years, Ziúr follows up her 2017 debut album U Feel Anything? with sophomore effort ATØ. This time around, she’s operating with a much larger arsenal of sounds and influences, and dedicates the new record to “all survivors, outcasts and weirdos”. 

Meemo Comma
Sleepmoss

Sleepmoss is the second album by Meemo Comma, AKA, Lara Rix-Martin, a Brighton-based producer. It is the follow-up to Ghost On The Stairs, which was an inward-looking, yet, cathartic album. Sleepmoss is more outward-looking, inspired by autumn and winter walks with her dog, celebrating the glory of nature.

Speaker Music
of desire, longing

Musician and journalist DeForrest Brown Jr. brings his Speaker Music project to Planet Mu for the first time on his latest album of desire, longing. Consisting of two lengthy pieces of music taking up a side of vinyl apiece, titled ‘With Empathy’ and ‘Without Excess’, his style may be abstract but it paints a brilliant vision for music in 2019.

Jlin
Autobiography (Music from Wayne McGregor's Autobiography)

Jlin continues her ascension into the pantheon of all-time greats with her score for Wayne McGregor’s Autobiography. It’s typically fervid work from the Gary, Indiana producer. The poise of her high-art, post-footwork style is even sharper than usual here. One can only imagine how riveting these pieces would be when wed to McGregor’s choreography, but the music alone will do just fine.

µ-Ziq
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. Seen as a sort of companion to that album, 'Challenge Me Foolish' is similarly uplifting creating a mood of gentle optimism with music that is both baroque and whimsical.

Mr. Mitch
Devout

Mr. Mitch’s new album is a careful and conscious exploration of fatherhood and relationships; so much so that his son Milo features at one point. Devout also features guest spots from Duval Timothy, Palmistry, P Money and more, all contributing to Mr. Mitch’s vision of minimalist R&B and electronic pop. CD / double LP release on Planet Mu.

Felix Lee
Inna Daze

The excellent Planet Mu label presents Inna Daze, the debut studio album from producer - and, for the first time, vocalist - Felix Lee. The record’s sense of ruthless economy retains the punky edginess of his first EPs, but envelopes it with a wider sense of musical world-building. It also features a host of members of Stockholm’s Drain Gang - including Yayoyanoh, Quantum Natives, Oxhy and Gaika.

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’. 

Antwood
Delphi

Electronica maestro Tristan Douglas brings his third studio album under his Antwood moniker to the Planet Mu imprint. Delphi tells the story of the romantic adventures, triumphs and disappointments of the titular central character (who was co-created with Douglas’ girlfriend Olivia Dreisinger) through the use of a repeated musical motif.

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.

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. 

DJ Nate
Take Off Mode

With Take Off Mode, DJ Nate bookends the Tens with two of its finest footwork collections. As with 2010’s Da Trak Genious, this LP compiles some of the juke and battle trax that the Chicago native has laid down in the intervening decade. Given that this period includes the years in which Nate was temporarily paralysed from the neck down, Take Off Mode also stands as something of a triumphant return. Tense, explosive tunes in the Teklife vein.

Rian Treanor
ATAXIA

First full-length album from young producer Rian Treanor. ATAXIA is accordingly a tighter and more rigorously organised set of tracks, with intense rhythmic structures and precisely calibrated synthesis. But in case that sounds alienating, fear not, because Treanor’s sound leaves plenty of room for the dance as well as the home listening environment. On Planet Mu.

Claude Speeed
Sun Czar Temple

Rich textured electronic noises from Scotland’s Claude Speeed. FAO fans of the softer side of Tim Hecker, Fennesz et al. At times recalling the bleepy arpeggios of early Emeralds yet with a much more synthetic edge, Sun Czar Temple is well worth diving into. Available on 12” vinyl from Planet Mu.

Silk Road Assassins
State Of Ruin

Silk Road Assassins drop their debut LP via the notorious Planet Mu. Given how lush State Of Ruin sounds, it’s no surprise to find out that the trio of Tom E Vercetti, Chemist and Lovedr0id all make electronic library music for their day jobs. This album is full of the sort of sombre, muted takes on trap, dancehall, grime etc. that Mr. Mitch has become so good at over the past couple of years.

Ital Tek
Bodied

Ital Tek’s sixth LP for Planet Mu might be the Brighton producer’s most full-realised work to date. There is barely a whisper of the frenetic dubstep and footwork rhythms that formed the bedrock of his early releases. While the sense of dystopian unease that has always been part of the Ital Tek sound carries through to Bodied, here we find it drifting in seas of electronic ambience and sombre strings. Imagine Fatima Al Qadiri, Arca, recent Bjork and Vangelis and you’re getting there with this one.

Sinjin Hawke & Zora Jones
Vicious Circles

After working together for a while as the Fractal Fantasy audio-visual group, dancefloor futurists Sinjin Hawke and Zora Jones reunite for a seven-track EP on Planet Mu. As anyone who’s heard their solo work would expect, Vicious Circles is a wicked blend of different clubisms. Drill, Jersey, juke and peak-era Timbaland are all rumbling in the lines of this impressive showing. Anyone who’s kept an eye on Fade To Mind these past few years should give Vicious Circles a go.

RP Boo
I'll Tell You What!

It’s amazing to think that RP Boo has never had a prominent release of wholly original material prior to I'll Tell You What!. The last two LPs from the footwork originator, Legacy and Fingers, Bank Pads And Foot Prints, were largely archival releases. I’ll Tell You What! finds the RP technic in good nick after all these years. The tracks here are exemplary 160 bpm workouts that also feature a little of Boo on the mic. Out via Planet Mu.

Silk Road Assassins
Reflection Spaces

The iconic Planet Mu label continue a killer run with Reflection Spaces from Silk Road Assassins. This is the debut EP from this hotly tipped crew who blend futuristic sound design, grime instrumentals and dystopian synth soundscapes. Think Kuedo and Logos battling it out in some kind of apocalyptic nightmare.

Sami Baha
Free For All

As he's partly responsible for one of the greatest tracks of all time (Total Freedom's Bitch Better Have My Money edit), I've always had a soft spot for Sami Baha. His new album is a compelling document of the state of contemporary "club" music, and features guest spots from UK Drill superstar Dimzy, as well as Yung Lean and Egyptian MCs Dawsha and Abanob.

Herva
Kila

Herva makes dance music in from his base in rural Italy, at considerable remove from the ‘scene’. This, plus the fact that he primarily uses hand-tweaked hardware and software to produce his tracks, means that he sounds notably different from most house and techno producers: a little odder, a little wonkier. Kila is out on Planet Mu.

East Man
Red, White & Zero

Anthoney Hart - he of Basic Rhythm and Imaginary Forces fame - drops the first release of his East Man project on Planet Mu. Red, White & Zero is a whip-smart take on grime also incorporates elements of jungle, techno and hardcore, with an overall effect not dissimilar to the ‘ruff sound’ pioneered by Novelist and Mumdance. Features include Darkos Strife, Killa P and Kwam, while academic Paul Gilroy provides liner notes.

Claude Speeed
Other Infinities

One of Planet Mu’s two Christmas cassettes is Claude Speeed’s Other Infinities, a companion piece to the Infinity Ultra LP that we all enjoyed earlier in 2017. This is essentially an alternative take on what that album might have become, being extra dark, noisy and spacey. Fifteen exclusive Speeed cuts. Limited edition cassette.

Ziúr
U Feel Anything?

From the always reliable Planet Mu comes U Feel Anything by Ziúr. Emerging from a new wave of Berlin techno producers, Ziúr is forging a new and exciting sound. Ziúr is very much at the heart of this new wave and is the founder and resident DJ of Boo-Hoo, a club night of underground dance music. A character who lives on the fringes, Ziúr’s music is as new and fresh as the DJ who made it.

Antwood
Sponsored Content

Canadian producer Antwood had several releases on netlabels such as B.YRSLF Division and Cocobass before being snatched up by Planet Mu. Returning with his second full length album, Sponsored Content pulls back on the footwork flurries leaving spacious delicate compositions with equal punch. FFO Arca.

Mike & Rich
Expert Knob Twiddlers

Mike & Rich is Mike Paradinas (aka µ-Ziq) and Richard D. James (aka Aphex Twin): you can see the pair of them grinning away on the cover there. This material dates from the mid-90’s and the approach is playful: fun-time groovy electronics as well as the beat-mangling blasts you might expect. This 2CD or 3LP reissue of Expert Knob Twiddlers even has some bonus tracks and alternate versions added!
  • Label(s):
  • Planet Mu

µ-Ziq (u-ziq)
XTLP

IDM adventurer µ-Ziq drops another sound bomb on Planet Mu. On XTLP however, the tone is a little less frantically experimental than a lot of µ-Ziq work. The press release even speaks of emotion! This is appropriate though, as parts of XTLP may conjure up blissful rave memories in the heads of some of the older among you. First time on CD for previous vinyl only releases. 
  • Label(s):
  • Planet Mu

Claude Speeed
Infinity Ultra

Claude Speeed has returned, and he's turning up the heat. For Infinity Ultra, his second LP, he has channelled an impressive array of musical and psycho-geographical influences. Children's cartoons, grand artworks and vacant, deserted spaces all played their parts in the conception of this record. All the better for him to process the madness and contradictions of modern living. On Planet Mu.

Various
µ20

Big box-set here for the twentieth anniversary of the Planet Mu label, the place to be for messed-up electronic dance music. µ20 is a triple-disc bonanza of favourites, including Shitmat, Luke Vibert, Leafcutter John, Venetian Snares… You should really know by now if this is something you need (it probably is). 100 page book in the box-set too!

Ekoplekz
Bioprodukt

After several albums and EPs on Mordant, Perc Trax, Punch Drunk and Further Records, Nick Edwards’ Ekoplekz project has found a good home at Planet Mu and is returning with his fourth album for them. Rolling through Aphex Twin and lof-fi 90s acid and techno territories with a fuzzy cassette warmth, it’s imperfect and glorious.

Jlin
Black Origami

Juke and footwork producer Jlin builds on her unique sound with her second full length for Planet Mu. Skittish and direct percussive trills come at you from all directions with feverish energy and underlying groove. Black Origami features collaborations with Holly Herndon, William Basinski, Fawkes and Dope Saint Jude.
  • Label(s):
  • Planet Mu

Kuedo
Slow Knife

Kuedo has left a hefty five years in between the release of his debut full-length album Severant and this follow-up. Slow Knife has a sleek, neon-city-at-night kind of feel, with stuttering trap percussion and glassy synths everywhere. But there are also contributions from cellist Koenraad Ecker and Wild Beasts singer Hayden Thorpe. A highly atmospheric trip on Planet Mu.

Asher Levitas
Lit Harness

Lit Harness is the first full-length solo release from Asher Levitas, after many appearances as part of Old Apparatus. This record has that hulking dark droning bass-music sound to it, like a sinister club buried deep underground and attacked by flares of distortion and whipcracks of digital noise. Heavy stuff, on Planet Mu.

Antwood
Virtuous.Scr

For his debut full-length, microbiologist and electronics wizard Antwood joins the legendary Planet Mu label. His Virtuous.scr album plays with ideas of artificial intelligence and the internet, and his sound is a dense collage of glassy synth textures, cut-up percussion and abrasive mangled samples. 

RP Boo
The Ultimate

Key footwork talent RP Boo presents a tight package of six sharp new cuts, boastfully titled The Ultimate. Samples include a Sesame Street song(!), some Fresh words and a bit of pop, all woven into the frantic boom-click extra-rhythmic framework of that super high-grade Boo footwork. 12” on Planet Mu.

RP Boo
Fingers, Bank Pads & Shoe Prints

Available on double vinyl LP or CD.RP Boo, the king (quite rightly so) of footwork follows his debut Legacy returning to Planet Mu with Fingers, Bank Pads & Shoe Prints. Filled to the brim with body movers RP Boo brings the Chicago underground to the masses and want absolutely everyone to get involved.

Luke Vibert
Bizarster

Luke Vibert returns with a new full-length that recalls many of the paths he has so expertly trodden before. Thoroughly funky breaks underpin everything, the rest of these tracks being made up of a kaleidoscopic variety of samples, melodies and tightly tweaked little details. Bizarster is a busily fun record, released by Planet Mu.

Ekoplekz
Reflekzionz

Murky Bristolian master Nick Edwards aka Ekoplekz returns to Planet Mu for his third full length album with them. Reflekzionz pulls the music of Edwards’ early 90’s life into his cassette-dub vortex, pushing out tracks that are recognisably Ekoplekz but via the likes of Aphex Twin or Cluster. CD or double LP!

Mr. Mitch
Don't Leave

In the last few years Grime has been re-envisioned by a group of producers, in part thanks to London-based experimental Grime upstart Mr. Mitch. Mitch brings his deftly stark, bizarre and understated touch to this new 4-track EP ‘Don’t Leave’, which is a stylistic precursor to ‘Parallel Memories’, a forthcoming full-length due to be released by Planet Mu not long after the EP drops.

Teengirl Fantasy
8AM

Teengirl Fantasy’s new album is titled 8AM, and you’d better believe it isn’t about the kind of 8AMs where you’ve got up bright and early in order to get to work on time. No, this is post-rave all-nighter 8AM music, playing with the spaced bliss of that mode with chilled out grooves and bright melodies. Dreamy after-club electronics released by Planet Mu.

Herva
Hyper Flux

The glitch-haven named Hyper Flux doesn't promise to be so slick in its opening bars, but only when this Italian, named Herve Atsi Courti, gets in to his stride, the true quality of Hyper Flux is revealed. Herve Atsi Courti, who basks in the countryside surrounding Florence, steps out of the norm with this bizarre fusion of techno and wonky house.

Konx-om-Pax
Caramel

Tangibly thick, mostly beatless, electronic tracks from Konx-om-Pax. A lot of this record feels like peak-hour rave tracks but with most of the rhythm stripped out, leaving the bright melodies and the textures of the synths to do the ecstasy-generating work. No problem there: Caramel is as sweet as it claims to be. On Planet Mu.

Jlin
Dark Energy

Hailing from the humorously named Gary, Indiana, Jlin evidently picks up on the vibrations of nearby Chicago. The chunky staccato rhythms of Dark Energy form an intense canvas for this footwork aficionado to sprinkle with peppered melancholia. Features guest vocals from Holly Herndon. Out on CD and vinyl double LP from Planet Mu.

Sami Baha
Mavericks

Sami Baha, who describes his style as ‘instrumental trap’, produced much of the material that became Mavericks while living in Istanbul, and the intense political feel of the city over the last few years seems to have permeated the advanced-grade music. One track features a guest-spot from Kuedo. 12” on Planet Mu.

Ekoplekz
Entropik EP

Tough and twisty analogue rhythms combine with heavy drones in the latest from Bristol’s Ekoplekz (a.k.a Nick Edwards). The Beltram referencing Entropik EP boasts two side long tracks stretching over 10 minutes each and building into melodic lo-fi conceptual symphonies. Out on 12” vinyl from Planet Mu.

Ital Tek
Hollowed

Revered label Planet Mu unveil Ital Tek’s noisy and experimental Hollowed. Tossing out his previous work, this record now has more in common with sound design, dark ambient and Ben Frost than his earlier experiments with dubstep and bass music. But don’t fear, there’s still percussion; heavy, colossal and speaker destroying percussion.

Yearning Kru
Copper Vale

Copper Vale finds Taiwan producer Yearning Kru conjuring up a fantasy landscape derived from sci-fi literature. So expect a swirl of electronics dashed heavily with samples, all adding up to a lo-fi evocation of an imaginary realm. Copper Vale is released on Planet Mu in a joint effort with Kuedo’s Knives imprint.

Drew Lustman
The Crystal Cowboy

Drew Lustman aka ‘Falty DL’ takes on a new persona for this sharper, more economical release ‘The Crystal Cowboy’. Consisting of eleven tracks of musical rejuvenation, Lustman’s new material sees the artist flourish away from the conceptual pressures of his former alter ego. The result is an experiment in musical freedom through hardcore drum and bass with elements of funk and soul that bring an enticing, melodic depth to his sonic fantasyland.

John T. Gast
Excerpts

John T. Gast falling into our ears with another enigmatic record. Excerpts is about the winter in Southwest England, about dreaming of clouds when the sky has been gray for three weeks straight and you want to think about the sun, about struggling with inner demons you can’t quite exactly see.

Mr. Mitch
Parallel Memories

Fresh from helping make Boxed's instrumental grime showcase the most exciting and daring club night for some time, Mr Mitch has a double LP for Planet Mu. All weightless string samples and beat-less arpeggios, the grime legend is catering to all you in-the-club-but-still-sad melancholics. Includes the glacial Dark0 collaboration ‘Sweet Boy Code’.

Ital
Endgame

According to Ital, things are about to get psychedelic -- whatever that's supposed to mean. The important thing is that he's done releasing EPs and is delivering his first full-length, the ominously titled 'Endgame'. According to Ital himself, the record is something of a dancefloor horror flick, working with warm, welcoming electronic tones before going to gruesome, reverb-drenched places that leave the listener insecure. Ital's minimal arrangements make 'Endgame' sparse and uneasy. Dark techno? What next?

DJ Diamond
Flight Muzik Reloaded

Do you know why they call him DJ Diamond? Is it because of his sick cuts? Because he’s brilliant? Or his many facets? Nobody cares. Flight Muzik is an eclectic musical collage that wonders the gamut of electronic-hiphop related genres. Get your fix for all varieties, all together in one healthy dose.

Ital
Dream On

Planet Mu present a new LP from Ital. Prior to the release of Dream On the one known to his friends as Daniel Martin-McCormick dropped EPs on Lovers Rock and 100% Silk. Judging by this collection of maximalist, harmonious and slightly psychedelic house and techno it’s easy to see why the aforementioned labels were so keen to get him on board. Think Lone and Virginia.
