Peverelist
IDLE050

Bristol’s Idle Hands celebrates hitting fifty releases by going back to where it all it began - Peverelist was responsible for the label’s first drop back in 2009. Though sounds and styles have come and gone in the intervening nine years, Pev's ability to create dancefloor movers remains unparalleled...view item »

O$VMV$M

Om Unit
Friend of Day

Jim Coles of Om Unit is a bit of a big deal in the drum & bass scene and has put his talents to dubstep early on too. All of this genre blending has always had some electronic leanings which make Om Unit stand out that little bit. Friend of Day is a three track 12”, shifting from sun-k...view item »

Rhythmic Theory
Circulation

With a slew of releases on Happy Skull, A14, Ancient Monarchy and his own imprint, Rhythmic Theory returns to Idle hands for his debut album and uses the platform to full effect.

Bruce
The Trouble with Wilderness

Bruce follows up on releases for Livity Sound and Hessle Audio with 3 new cuts on Idle Hands. The Trouble with Wilderness is an even split between dancefloor action (albeit with a touch of melancholy) and subtler ambient house tracks. Plenty of space in these tracks, with each element sitting just where it is supposed t...view item »

Matt Karmil
IDLE033

Matt Karmil originally envisioned just one of these tracks to be released on Idle Hands, but the label loved everything that they heard, so decided to put out the lot. With that in mind, IDLE033 flows very well over 2 LPs, deftly moving in and out of dancefloor modes, always with an interesting quirk to the production. ...view item »

Rhythmic Theory
Future Tense

Rhythmic Theory continues to release fine techno with deep links to old-school drum and bass. In between releases on Ancient Monarchy and Blackest Ever Black, Future Tense is both carefully detailed and raw sounding, with a real feel for the dance. DJ October joins in on remix duties, taking the origina...view item »

O$VMV$M
O$VMV$M

O$VMV$M is the latest spawn from the always-worthwhile Young Echo collective: specifically, this is Neek and Amos Childs. The self-titled EP they present to us here is an eclectic audio trip through some unusual spaces, all squeezed through the strictures of soundsystem culture....view item »

Strategy
Seeds of Paradise

12” Vinyl LP on Idle Hands. Strategy is the moniker of Portland based producer Paul Dickow. With Seeds of Paradise he explores a sort of near future sci-fi dub, filled with radio transmission crackle, lush dronescapes and spaced out dub textures. Would fit nicely alongside some of your Loscil and ...view item »

Strategy
Return From The Stars

US producer Strategy gets a release on Chris Farrell's Idle Hands imprint, offering up a 12" slice of downtempo goodness There's a Peverelist remix of Strategy's "Return From The Stars" on offer, and so the sounds begin to mesh and fall out into a wonderful collage of house, dub an...view item »

Headhunter
Lost Prophet/ Chasing Dragons

Also on a dubstep tip is this 12" by Bristol's Headhunter. Starts slowly as John Peel may once have said but develops nicely into a mid paced laid back slab of atmospheric electronica with the odd vocal and dubbed out sample popping out of the mix. You know the type of thing chilled out late night/early morning feel with lovely sub bass and dub ...view item »
