Beau Wanzer
Do The Spider Shimmy

Beau Wanzer has been putting his own spin on a blend of industrial, wave, techno and electro for the past six years or so, since first releasing records through L.I.E.S. Do The Spider Shimmy is a 6-track EP with tracks culled from a CD-R he gave to Solvent & Lowfish in 2003 when he worked in a Chicago record store. Recently unearthed, it shows that Wanzer’s trademark rawness, minimalism and vocals processed beyond recognition were all in place early on.

Lowfish
Test(e)

‘But wait!’, we hear you cry, ‘isn’t Test(e) a 1996 cassette by Pest(e) rather than a 2019 double-LP from Suction Records boss Lowfish?’ Well, you’re both right and wrong on that one. You see, Pest(e) was another pseudonym that Lowfish's Gregory de Rocher went by back in the day, so while this new edition of Test(e) may come under a different name it’s still the same music by the same guy. Either way, this record oscillates between cold downtempo electro and frenzied breakbeat in a manner befitting an IDM album that was made in the mid-90’s.

D'Arcangelo
D'Arcangelo

Reissue of D’Arcangelo’s debut EP from 1996, originally released on the now defunct Aphex Twin run label Rephlex. There’s a lot of Aphex Twin’s Caustic Window era to be found here. The first three tracks present distorted techno-come-IDM through industrial scrapes and clangs at a faster breakbeat pace offset by the closing tracks which soften and turn to acid and ambient playfulness.

June / Lowfish
C.D.S.N

June and Lowfish share this 12” on the Suction Records label, with two tracks from each producer sitting cheerfully side-by-side. Everything here is bright and boldly melodic: absolutely lovely electro pulsing all over the shop. C.D.S.N is pressed to orange vinyl and released in a limited edition of 300 copies.

Lowfish
Hypersensitivity EP

After a few years of lying low (pun very much intended), Lowfish returns to the fray with six fine-tuned electro jams. The tracks on Hypersensitivity aren’t out to reinvent the wheel, just offer good old fashioned club fodder to get loose to of an evening. Perky synths and crisp 808s abound, and the likes of ‘Favourable Report’ have a bit of a Gary Numan thing going on. This EP also marks Lowfish’s return to Suction Records (D’Arcangelo, RX-101), the label he co-founded back in the 90s.

D'Arcangelo
II

Suction Records follow up their reissue of D’Arcangelo’s 1996 Rephlex Records EP with this new archival release. Four of the six pieces on II were tracked around the same time as the Roman duo’s self-titled debut, though they have never seen the light of day until now. They’re the typically mind-melting mix of braindance, acid, electro, techno and IDM that the Italian veterans have spent the subsequent years stamping their authority on. The release is fleshed out by ‘AOM*2’ and ‘Diagram IX’, both long out of print until now.
