The No Pain In Pop label have something of a showcase with this release, the third in their compilation series. Bedroom Club III contains six tracks from bright new electronic artists, including Throwing Shade, Sim Hutchins and Jire. All produce inventive tracks, slipping in and out of techno, UK funky and ambience. 12".
The producer behind Jire is just 20 years old: remarkable when you hear the talent on display here. Zang pokes its head through the door of the club for a while, but mostly prefers to hang out in the abstract computer music suite next door. A cavalcade of frantic digital sonics, lovely stuff. 12” on No Pain In Pop.
Occasionally tense, always emotional and beautifully constructed, I Enjoy To Sweep A Room is the debut album from Essex boy Sim Hutchins. Blurred, synthy and richly produced it’s a woozy journey into the mind of a post-grime talent. Well worth your time. Out on vinyl LP from No Pain In Pop. Included bonus CD.
A sparkly, reverby record from upcoming London producer Throwing Shade. The Fate Xclusive EP touches down in a few different territories: the single ‘Honeytrap’s odd-pop contains strains of 90’s trip-hop, contemporary postmodern electronics, and a strikingly direct vocal performance. 12” on No Pain In Pop.
We can never get enough of lush rock sounds. Echo Lake’s second album promises to be rich and unique in their special way, having recovered of first drummer Peter Hayes’ passing. The bands' members preferring planning and hard work over spontaneous combustion, Era has been years in the making and hopefully will live up to its potential and our expectations.
Here we have the debut 'noise architecture' release from cultured Londoner Jire (aka Nathan Geyer) which promises to combine elements of modern classical, screwed field recordings, and dance music. A name that jolts to mind here is the legendary Tim Hecker, so expect some weird but sublime sounds.
patten's glitchy electronic work is blunt and forthcoming, melding together the sensibilities of acts on early days Warp and contemporary Anticon with music that is better codified as avant-garde, drawing on musique concrete and dream pop. Glaqjo Xaacsso traverses many different styles to make something of a sonic microcosm.
