Teresa Winter
What The Night Is For

Teresa Winter previously released a tape on Reckno back in 2015, followed up in 2017 by the ace hallucinogenic electronics of her 'Untitled Death' LP on The Death of Rave. She returns to the imprint for the equally intimate 'What The Night Is For'. Heading deep into the occult and afterlife realms with droning organ, zoned ambient, field recordings and tracks that feel like a contemporary revision of "Englands Hidden Reverse". 'For Murder' recalls moments of Cosey Fanni 'Tutti's Time To Tell' and her repetition of the word "Bestial" seems almost like a meditation on Coil's "angels are bestial, man is the animal.." lyric. Comparisons aside, Winter is proving herself to be a unique and distinctive voice from the UK underground.

Nozomu Matsumoto
Climatotherapy

What is the actual heck going on here? Feels like we're inside some scene from Ghost In The Shell or something. This single piece from Nozomu Matsumoto sits alone as a singular statement - a bizzaro soundtrack for a health forecast narrated by evil corp. Amazon's Text-to-Speech tool. Yet despite its practically surreal effect, it feels somewhat poignant in this age of relentlessly accelerating technology.

Gabor Lazar
Unfold

More slices of shiny technoid madness from Budapest resident Gábor Lázár! Unfold’s rhythms are in fact a little easier to get your head and feet around than usual, though, sudden jump cuts and wild syncopations stop things from getting too trad, don’t worry. Will sit very nicely on the turntable with Mark Fell, footwork or Errorsmith, to say the least. Double LP from Death Of Rave.

Rian Treanor
RAVEDIT

Rian Treanor returns to The Death Of Rave (Kareem, Merzbow) with a white-label of edits. The source material here is not your typical party-starting fare - Pakistani film music, cheesy 80s pop and 90’s Eurodance all make an appearance on RAVEDIT - but Treanor manages turn it out here. The first three are hyperactive rave jams that sit somewhere between Jam City, 90’s hardcore and juke, while the record closes out with a fourteen-minute slow-burner.

Cam Deas
Time Exercises

Cam Deas is a former regular on Blackest Rainbow and has also previously released his avant-folk guitar/vision of American Primitive on Dead Pilot Records, Alter, The Great Pop Supplement etc. However, for this latest work on The Death Of Rave, he's radically switched tools, trading his trusty acoustic strings for modular synthesizer and computer. The results are a suite of twisted, sometimes dissonant, disorientating soundscapes and tangled, otherworldly electronics that could easily be mistaken for the work of vintage electronic music pioneers. It's a fully accomplished sound and an exciting, bold new direction for the artist.

The Sprawl
EP 2

Following the restless, abstract dance noise of EP 1, this sequel continues the group's sonic reaction to William Gibson's sci-fi novel Neuromancer. This edition depicts the information relations between human and machine, and clearly suggests violence and dystopia through it's brutal future rave and dark, caustic soundscapes.

Maxwell Sterling
Hollywood Medieval (2017 Edition)

Maxwell Sterling is a Manchester born soundtrack composer who spent time in LA and composed a piece inspired by being a nanny for rich LA parents. This offers an alternative lucid view of LA via his distinct sonic hauntology. Also of note is the sleeve by legendary Manchester artist Linder (aka Maxwell’s mum).

Mark Leckey
Dream English Kid 1964 - 1999AD

Mark Leckey’s present film installation is Dream English Kid 1964 - 1999AD, and the audio component is strong enough to warrant release on its own, following the PAN issuing of his Hecker collaboration. The essential intention is to reconstruct the life of young Leckey entirely through online archive footage: Youtube and the like. 500 vinyl copies on The Death Of Rave.

Sam Kidel
Disruptive Muzak

Sam Kidel of Young Echo had a little bit of fun making Disruptive Muzak, for which the basic concept was this: play muzak-esque electronic sound down the phone to operatives at government call centres. Hilarity ensues as the employees repeatedly ask if anyone is there. The B-side contains the music without the phone calls, so you can try it yourself! 500 copies on The Death Of Rave.

The Sprawl
E.P.1

The Sprawl is an exciting new project that pulls together alternative electronicists Logos, Shapednoise and Mumdance together to become one entity. They first performed together at 2015’s CTM, and forward-looking novelist William Gibson is a chief inspiration. Skewed, busy, experimental dance productions, very fresh. 12” on The Death Of Rave.

Black Mecha
AA

Black Mecha is the new project from Fortress Crookedjaw of deliberately abrasive black metal band Wold. On AA black metal is fused with heavy electronics to create a soundtrack to an imaginary sci-fi world. The music is informed by a world view that is only understood by a select few. Listeners will require a steely disposition and an open mind.

Naturkunde Museum Ostkreuz
Tropicalyptic Excursions

The second release on Death of Rave by Naturkunde Mesuem Ostkreuz, 'Tropicalyptic Excursions' sees the pan-European duo create a percussive, squelchy electronic dancefloor 12" record embued with a raw rave spirit. Full of energy, hypnotic and loud, this is a suitably hyperactive sound that befits their live reputation. Be quick this edition of blue coloured vinyl runs to just 500 copies.

Mark Fell + Gabor Lazar
The Neurobiology of Moral Decision Making

Yorkshire’s Mark Fell (SND, Sensate Focus) and Budapest’s Gábor Lázár destroy yet another laptop with a Max/MSP rhythm freak out. Mixing of Fell’s signature Linn drum and metal scraping synthetics that twist the groove as much as your sorry little head. An absolute essential for fans of SND, Autechre, Emptyset.

Delroy Edwards
Teenage Tapes

Teenage Tapes sees Delroy Edwards making some unexpected guitar noise pieces. They stem from experiments he made whilst messing around with guitar effects and reel-to-reel tape recorders as an art student. The sounds on this album have more in common with black metal and EBM than the thumping house you might expect. Teenage Tapes is available on vinyl LP.

Gabor Lazar
EP16

Gábor Lázár's glitchy and extremely avant techno is also strikingly minimalist, sticking to repetitious motifs that scratch away at the surface until there's nothing left. On 'EP16', his newest work, he extracts the same kind of monolithic sound through mesmerising takes on electronic persuasions, from electro to footwork, retaining his haunting disciplines throughout.

Wold
Postsocial

Evil, hissing and ear-crackling black metal is on offer from 'Postsocial', a record that comes out of the genre's hallmarks but makes them even more extreme -- this is, if anything, harsh noise, a wall of impenetrable noise and a collection of wind tunnels blocking out any melody and leaving behind nothing more than an onslaught of piercing vocals. Wold continue to abstract black metal beyond the point of return.
