Luke Abbott
Translate

A new studio album from Norfolk-based producer Luke Abbott. 2019’s 'Music From The Edge of An Island', released for Nils Frahm’s Piano Day, had broken a comparatively lengthy period of silence for the Szun Waves member. 'Translate' is a return to the sounds of his 'Holkham Drones' days. 

Holden & Zimpel
Long Weekend EP

This is what we want to hear. UK electronica bod James Holden hooking up with Polish Clarinet lord Waclaw Zimpel for a series of collaborations. It all happened when the twosome got together for a week in a London studio. Joined occasionally by guitarist Jakub Ziolek, the duo and trio jammed out some blissed-out krauty journeys - an international love in between the clarinet and modular synth.

Holden
The Idiots Are Winning

The Idiots Are Winning (now there’s a sentiment that holds up well today) was the debut album by one time overlord of computer music, Holden, or James Holden, as we’ve come to know and love him. It was originally released in 2006 and contains the classic tracks Idiot, Lump, Corduroy and 10101. James Holden went on to make The Animal Spirits, No.2 in the Norman Records albums of the year in 2017.

Leafcutter John
Yes! Come Parade With Us

Back in 2017, Leafcutter John captured a number field recordings collected while hiking across a hefty sixty miles stretching out across Norfolk’s coastal path. The resulting album, 'Yes! Come Parade With Us' - released by Border Community - features these field-recordings as a bedrock, while a kind of deeply English take of cosmic kosmische synth players over top, with aid from musician friends Tom Skinner and Sebastian Rochford.

James Holden
A Cambodian Spring OST

James Holden has created a synth based soundtrack for the documentary A Cambodian Spring. The film follows a group of activists fighting corrupt developers and officials as they try and protect their right to their land. Holden's soundtrack captures the intensity of their fight with tracks that veer between drone, trance and the odd arpeggio. 

James Holden & The Animal Spirits
The Animal Spirits

Electronics expert James Holden has expanded his Animal Spirits for a bold set of synth led folk opuses that fuse bits of psychedelia, kraut-rock, world jazz to create a genre blending opus that is also accessible. Sax, cornet, recorder and percussion have been introduced to the sonic maelstrom with Holden acting as band leader on an album that is sure to be highly anticipated. 

James Holden & Camilo Tirado / Luke Abbott
Outdoor Museum of Fractals / 555Hz

DJ, producer and Border Community label head James Holden pairs with artist and producer Luke Abbott for 70 minutes of trippy and minimal synthesizer drone. The two pieces on this double vinyl LP split (with download code) were composed for Terry Riley’s 80th birthday and fittingly are extended, improvised drones influenced by Riley’s hypnotic and percussive music.

Rocketnumbernine
Two Ways

Following on from being Neneh Cherry’s backing band for her last album and tour (yeah, really), Rocketnumbernine head back to their original duo activities. Produced by James Holden, Two Ways is a pair of improvised live jams, wild drums and cosmic synths matching each other perfectly. 12” on Border Community.

Luke Abbott
Wysing Forest

Because who doesn't love a bit of iridescent colour in their lives? The second release from Norfolk electronic producer Luke Abbott saw him moving into more varied and atmospheric styles grounded in modular synthesisers which sound both futuristic and plucked straight from 1970s Germany. Released through James Holden's ever-reliable Border Community label. Check our 9/10 review just below.

Holden
The Inheritors

The Inheritors was (James) Holden's follow up to his much-loved 2006 debut The Idiots Are Winning. Again on Border Community it was another fruitful journey into his sound world  - an immersive swirl of sounds that takes dance music and stretches it to its outer limits. Comparisons are hard to pick out but there's something of the prism-like haze of Boards of Canada here but Holden's sound is truly all his own. 

Wesley Matsell
Total Order of Being

Wesley Matsell’s music sounds like it comes from a similar place to a lot of 90s dance electronica: somewhere in the middle of the countryside late at night. Not a mere throwback though: Total Order Of Being has grabbed a few of the finest touches from dance music that has passed by since then, so some of this is proper banging. Lovely cover, out on Border Community.
