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 t...view item »

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 ...view item »

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...view item »

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 diffe...view item »

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 battl...view item »

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 ...view item »

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 ...view item »

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...view item »

Jlin
Free Fall EP

Following up her astounding, critic-wowing footwork opus Dark Energy from last year, Gary, Indiana resident Jlin deploys the Free Fall EP. Over the 4 tracks, she displays new directions and re-cut takes on older forms, all of it brimming with energy and atypical rhythms. ‘BuZilla’ is a re-versioning...view item »

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 over...view item »

Claude Speeed
Other Infinities

One of Planet Mu’s two Christmas cassettes is Claude Speeed’s Other Infinities, a companion piece to the Infinity Ult...view item »

Solar Bears
Supermigration

Solar Bears’ previous was another of those records indebted to that kind of hazed ‘70s melancholy that streams through records by the likes of Boards of Canada, Bibio and Seeland...view item »

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 und...view item »

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...view item »

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...view item »

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 t...view item »

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 ...view item »

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...view item »


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...view item »

Ekoplekz
Unfidelity

The only box I want to put music in is my record box and yet my role as a writer here at Norman Towers in a sense dictates that I kinda have to, to some extent in order to attempt to articulate what a record sounds like to our readers. Genre references can be useful at times but so much is postmodern these days that it simply defies genre tags a...view item »

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....view item »

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 cassett...view item »

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...view item »

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...view item »

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. Heav...view item »

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 sam...view item »

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 foo...view item »

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 ...view item »

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...view item »

John Wizards
John Wizards

I don’t know anything about John Wizards. In fact I don’t think I’d heard his name before today, isn’t that terrible? I’m getting slack in my old age. Anyway, he’s got an album out on Planet Mu so I’d better start figuring out who he is. I just put the CD on and it started...view item »

Ital
Hive Mind

Daniel Martin-McCormick's Ital project finds a new home and its first full length release on Planet Mu. It's clear to see why Mike Paradinas has signed this material as there is something quite charming about the sound and the simplistic approach to its creation. 'Doesn't Matter (If You Love Him)' samples fragments of Lady Gaga and Wh...view item »

FaltyDL
You Stand Uncertain

I like this NY champs stuff. Coming from a junglist background hasn't decimated his love for more soulful grooves. His output is pretty consistent, quality-wise and you're always gonna be on safe ground when a record opens with a guest vocal spot from the gorgeous Anneka. Her silky dream-like voice glides along, virtually dripping off the...view item »

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 me...view item »

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...view item »

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 countrysid...view item »

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 P...view item »

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...view item »

Ital Tek
Nebula Dance

Jeeez, this sounds "well Planet Mu" from the off. Alan Myson opens his "difficult third album" under his iTAL tEK moniker with a chunk of plunging kaleidoscopic tribal grime that morphs in and out of a braindance '...view item »

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....view item »

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, t...view item »

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...view item »

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 b...view item »

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 g...view item »

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....view item »

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 fr...view item »

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...view item »

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...view item »

Venetian Snares
My Love Is A Bulldozer

Hold on to your hats it’s everyones favourite drum and bass botherer Venetian Snares, here with his first album since 2010’s ‘My So Called Life’ and Aaron is on blinding form as usual with his psychotic brand of break-beat schizophrenia. ‘My Love Is A Bulldozer’ starts as it means to go on with headache induci...view item »

Traxman
Da Mind Of Traxman Vol. 2

The (I’m mean ‘Da’) mind of Traxman is littered with little audio snippets and broken samples all filed away in an ad hoc fashion within the confines of the lads mind palace. It’s okay though, Cornelius Ferguson, a truly deranged genius, has a system. Traxman kicks the Footwork style and here he treats us to eighteen mini...view item »

Heterotic
Weird Drift

The sticker we’ve written on the front of the promo reads “Paradinas and wife. Good.” That could pretty much do as a review but I’m sure you want a bit more jam to lace the bread, right? Well the second collaboration for the pair (Paradinas being the U-Ziq/Pl...view item »

Poemss
Poemss

This Poemss CD has turned up at my house with a somewhat sexist note from Norman Towers II's resident post-it goblin - "Venetian Snares In "Gone Soft" Shock - Woman Responsible...", it opines. What it's trying to tell me is that Poemss is the duo of Aaron Funk and Toronto-based musician/artist Joanne Pollock, and it's somewhat less heavy-duty th...view item »

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....view item »

John Wizards
Muizenberg

The chunter. Its the chunter that gets you. Chunter on this chunter on that. Lets remove their tongues and enjoy the music. John Wizards are a band not a man but the singer is called John. They come from Cape Town in South Africa and their sunshine-infused music has recently been heard opening up for Jagwar Ma o...view item »

µ-Ziq (u-ziq)

µ-Ziq (u-ziq)
Chewed Corners

Long awaited new full length from Mr Paradinas after the release of the Xtep EP, ‘Chewed Corners’ is a real return to form and a hark back to the glory days of all things IDM, super catchy trance anthems complete with slammin’ piano and arms in the air melodic keyboard riffs, this is marvelous stuff from one of the true pioneer...view item »

Rudi Zygadlo
Melpomene / Arrows

Not the best of weeks for singles but I’m liking this. On the A side there’s an instrumental of partial interest with a slight neoclassical sound to it - it’s not unlike U-ziq with some engaging vocals pop...view item »

The Host
The Host

Always nice to see Planet Mu keeping busy. This week they're serving the debut from The Host - a semi-mysterious artist  - in the sense that I have no idea who's behind the pseudonym. Guess it ain't all that important, it'll become apparent soon enough as this dude's got summat real n...view item »
