Paul Blackford
Betamax

An artist who encapsulates the aesthetic of Sheffield-based label Central Processing Unit, Paul Blackford releases a new album titled Betamax. Taking its cues from the more downtempo beats and soundscapes of his 2017 LP Light Years, there’s a dozen tracks reminiscent of Boards Of Canada or Nightmares On Wax.

Datassette
Kestrel Manoeuvres In The Dark

Datassette is the recording moniker of British producer, programmer and DJ John Davies, and his latest four-track EP release, the punnily-titled Kestrel Manoeuvres In The Dark and presented on 12” vinyl, is a dazzling display of IDM reminiscent of prime-time Aphex Twin and the best Warp Records releases.

SDEM
Index Hole

SDEM aka Tom Knapp is an artist and DJ working in Northern England. This debut release for CPU follows on from a 12” of abstract electronics entitled 'Mophoc Rez' released under his given name on Ge-stell, and two SDEM cassettes released on meds and CADMUS. 'Index Hole' brings to the forefront exploratory and grotesque takes on abstracted electro and mutated strains of breakbeat hardcore, electronica and hip hop. These carefully evolving strands offer intricate details that become more clearly nuanced through repeated plays.

Bochum Welt
Seafire Remixes

Bochum Welt and Central Processing Unit go together like cheese and tomato. The former was a big cheese in the '90s IDM scene whilst the latter is an um...tomato in keeping the sound of that scene alive. On this new five track EP you get two new Bochum Welt tunes as well as remixes from James Zabiela, EOD and Telefon Tel Aviv. Be quick if you want a pizza the action (sorry).

Bit Folder
Silicon Frontier

Rumours abound about the identity of Bit Folder, the latest act to sign for Central Processing Unit. The main question on people’s lips regarding the enigmatic individual is whether they’re new to the game or seasoned veteran hiding behind a new name. Soundwise, debut EP Silicon Frontier mixes the sound of early Warp records with more recent releases on FireScope and acts such as Datassette, Noumen and B12.

Biochip
Synthase

Capturing the pioneering spirit of early Nineties IDM, this debut EP from Canadian newcomers Biochip ought to appeal to the hardened electronic music fan. Consisting of eight tracks captured completely live, Synthase resembles the haunted analogue machinery and skewed rhythms of early Aphex Twin and Autechre.

Annie Hall
Fum

Annie Hall (not the Woody Allen film of the same name) is a Barcelona-based artist who makes classic electro which is perfectly in step with the aesthetic of the CPU label. This second 12" is full of broken electro grooves, techno beats and evocative atmospheres that bring to mind legends of the genre such as the Orb, early Autechre and LFO. 
  • Label(s):
  • Central Processing Unit

Tryphème
Aluminia

As a hotly anticipated follow up to her debut album, 'Aluminia' is the brilliant electronic brainchild of production whizz Tryphème (aka Tiphaine Belin). Belin here retains that sense of boundary-free creativity, funnelling eerie vocals and glitchy synths aside a host of whirring and swirling and soundscapes.

Neil Landstrumm
A Death, a Mexican and a Mormon

Heroic figures of bleep techno don't come as frequently as acid pioneers or techno luminaries, but this doesn't dent the worth of Neil Landstrumm. He continues his legacy with a four track 12" EP on CPU, arching back to the roots of the genre in a drum machine, circuit riff storm of a release for floor and brain dancers everywhere.

Calum Gunn
Addenda

Addenda is the debut record on Central Processing Unit for Calum Gunn. You may have some of his previous released, the Berlin-based avant-garde electronic producer has released through Entr'acte, FLUF and Tsuku Boshi. This is a bit different for Gunn, more dancefloor focused. Nods to Autechre, Analord-era AFX and Mark Pritchard Rian Treanor and Renick Bell are evident.

Yuri Urano
Autline

Yet more club goodness from Central Processing Unit (BMX Krew, Paul Blackford) here. Yuri Urano’s style is a little more rough-and-ready than the buoyant electro fare the Sheffield label has become known for. Autline’s title track, for instance, is a clanging techno number that recalls Peder Mannerfelt’s ‘Equality Now’. Meanwhile ‘Pec’ is acid of a stronger strain than we usually find on a CPU drop.

Plant43
Three Dimensions

Central Processing Unit OG Plant43 brings forth Three Dimensions, a new LP for the Sheffield label. Three Dimensions is full of the sort of busy, twittering electro jams that CPU has built its empire on over the past few years. The likes of ‘Disrupt And Disobey’ and ‘Orange Neon Display’ find a sweet spot between Rephlex and Underground Resistance.

  • Central Processing Unit

Noumen
Obscurium

Noumen AKA Andriy Vezdenko returns with Obscurium, his follow-up to his 2017 debut Apeiron. As is becoming typical of this experimental studio master, it once again features melody set against more challenging rhythms. Fans of Autechre’s LP5 and Geometry by Jega will find plenty to like here. On Central Processing Unit.

96 Back
Issue In Surreal

96 Back is Evan Majumdar-Swift who, at just 19, is destined for the big time. Issue in Surreal, his third release, pairs each of his four tracks with a remixed version. The remixers on display here are Jensen Interceptor, Happa & Jabes, Sync 24 and Volruptus. Mastered by Rob Gordon. Double 12” on Central Processing Unit.

Silicon Scally
Cobalt Blue

Silicon Scally is back on Central Processing Unit (DMX Krew, Cygnus) with another set of electro niceness. Cobalt Blue contains four robust club tracks from the one born Carl Finlow. Entries like ‘Protocol 2’ and Cobalt Blue’s title piece chirrup away in that manner that makes you think of Fritz Lang’s Metropolis. ‘Asynchronous’ is a little tougher, its blurting bass drum reminiscent of Special Request.

Cygnus
Deep Analysis

Texan electran Cygnus returns to Central Processing Unit for the first time in a while. You know what you’re gonna get when you see these two pair up. Deep Analysis is another set of sea-sick club jams that sound like someone spilling orangeade all over Drexciya’s equipment. A couple of the Deep Analysis jams even come replete with some vocoder-laden vocals.

96 Back
Excitable, Girl

96 Back is the recording moniker of Evan Majumdar-Swift. He has built a reputation for his relentless over the last year or so. His debut album, Excitable, Girl, mixes dance floor bangers with lush ambient tunes, all strengthened by his steely Sheffield electro roots. Double LP on Central Processing Unit.

Djedjotronic
Cruising

Over the past few years Djedjotronic has released many a fine wedge of club tackle on Boysnoize Records. As such, a little stint on Central Processing Unit (DMX Krew, Neil Landstrumm) seems like a logical next step. Cruising contains four chunky electro-techno hybrids with a nice retro heft to them. The Drexciya is strong with this one.

Maelstrom
Fragment

More electro from the Central Processing Unit label. This time it's from Maelstrom, who returns to the label after July 2018's ECZO, with the four-track EP Fragment. The bass is as tough as you might expect, and I think I detect a hint of acid? I'm no expert. Most impressively Maelstrom is not afraid to vary tempos over the EP so Fragment will have something for every DJ.

Fleck E.S.C
Discrete Opinion

Sometimes it feels like once you’ve heard one Central Processing Unit release, you’ve heard them all. All those bleeps and bloops can jade one a little. However, something seems to be different with this latest drop from Fleck E.S.C. We can’t quite put our finger on it - maybe it’s the lovely languid bass sounds, maybe it’s the little dabs of abrasive noise he throws into the mix every now and then - but Discrete Opinion has managed to at once slot nicely into the label’s huge Braindance back-catalogue and also distinguish itself from it. Some feat.

96 Back
Provisional Electronics

Given that they seem to release at least one new record every single week, it’s quite surprising to find out that Sheffield’s Central Processing Unit have never previously dropped anything by a Steel City artist. That honour goes to Evan Majumdar-Swift aka 96 Back. His Provisional Electronics EP features four slabs of the kind of acid/electro that has become the label’s stock-in-trade. Comes recommended by Konx Om Pax and Altern-8’s Mark Archer.

Secret State
Zero Zero One

The bloops and bleeps and synths don't stop. Here is the latest release on the always consistent CPU records and the mysterious Secret State makes repetitive and harsh bleep music that you may want to find in a dank underground club. Some warmth appears in the form of soft synths and electro funk grooves so it's not all bang bang. quite soulful in places.
