PS + ISF
s/t

L.I.E.S. have a real treat here for fans of the harsher end of European techno. The producers of this EP have tried to hide themselves away under cover of their initials, but we’ve sleuthed that the PS and ISF in question are Dutch fiends Parrish Smith and Interstellar Funk. On these four tracks they unite for a set of no-messing EBM. The slower tempo of closer ‘Collapsed Buildings’ gives it an anarcho-dub feel reminiscent of recent drops from The Bug’s Pressure Records. Good stuff.

Steve Moore
s/t

Steve Moore has spent more time composing for the big and little screens these past few years, but if anything this experience seems to have made his output less 'cinematic' in the traditional sense. Whereas Moore’s previous entries for L.I.E.S. (2012’s Panther Moderns and 2011’s Zero-Point Field) were all widescreen hybrids of Detroit techno and Vangelis-isms, his new self-titled EP for Ron Morelli’s label is far more pared back. Only on the closing cut does Moore come close to his older sound, with the rest of Steve Moore opting for a sparse blend of kosmische synths and lilting programmed beats.

DeeCoy
DeeCoy - Archives Vol. 2

Daryl Cura makes his solo house/dance/hip-hop music under the name DeeCoy, a fairly well kept secret in the city of Chicago. He is also known for being a member of The Dirty Criminals, a dance/electronic trio featuring Traxx and Hieroglyphic Being. L.I.E.S. have opened up and plundered his vaults for a pair of 12” EPs. Here we have The Archives Vol. 2.

DeeCoy
Archives Vol. 1

DeeCoy is the alter ego of Daryl Cura, a member of Chicago electronic trio The Dirty Criminals along with Hieroglyphic Being and Traxx. The Archives Vol. 1 sees one of Chicago’s best kept secrets dabble in house, dance, hip-hop and rap. L.I.E.S. have enjoyed sifting through his archives. 12" EP on L.I.E.S.

AN-i + Unhuman
s/t

AN-I is back on L.I.E.S., this time with UNHUMAN in tow. As one might expect from such an infernal union, the tracks on this self-titled EP are devilish slabs of body music that blend techno, industrial, minimal synth and post-punk influences. The likes of Alec Empire and The D.A.F. are all invoked in the cacophony of scuffed-up drums, yelping vocals and cheap, nasty basslines.

Tom Of England
Sex Monk Blues

Tom of England is in fact Thomas Bullock of England who has previously traded under the names Tonka Hi-fi and most notoriously A.R.E Weapons. He's been tinkering away for years on what would become his debut solo album in which he produces six slices of futurist dancefloor sizzle which has been compared excitingly to PIL and Arthur Russell....and it's out on L.I.E.S further lending creedence to the idea that this is very much something of an unclassifiable release.  

Gunnar Haslam
Lebesgue Measures

L.I.E.S. have been consistently releasing the most exciting, raw and experimental house and techno, and this vinyl LP from Gunnar Haslam continues their stunning run. Harsh walls of sound are blended with jackin’ drum machine workouts and warped 808 basslines. Lebesgue Measures is the the third album from this NYC producer.

TV.OUT
s/t

Israel-born and Germany-based duo TV.OUT pull no punches on their new self-titled EP. It’s their second release on Long Island Electrical Systems. From German new beat to Dutch electro, this has it going on. The four tracks are perfect for dancefloor drama or cutting loose for dancefloor insanity. 12" 4-track EP on L.I.E.S.

Gladio (Legowelt)
Means To Freedom

Legowelt is famously fond of an alias, but of all the names he’s gone by down the years (Star Shepherd, Sammy Osmo) few are held in as high a regard as Gladio. This is partly due to the scarcity of Gladio records - new LP Means To Freedom is the first material from the project in over a decade. Means To Freedom is a set of typically snappy electro goodness from one of the genre’s foremost voices.

Torn Hawk
Time Is A Scam

Luke Wyatt, the Brooklyn-based electronic musician behind Torn Hawk returns with his fifth album, Time Is A Scam. His previous albums have come to us via Valcron Video, Not For Fun Records and Mexican Summer. Now, he returns to L.I.E.S. though whom he released a number of EPs between 2012 and 2013. Double LP on L.I.E.S.

Person Of Interest
Neurogenesis

This sleazy, grimy three-track EP from Person of Interest, out on L.I.E.S., bounces around the margins of house and techno intro POI style, blurring the lines of hammering broken beats, driving techno pulses and dark-leaning tribal sounds. A searing, exciting record from the stalwart Brooklyn producer.

Krikor
Saudi

After an extremely limited cassette run on Low Jack’s Editions Gravats back in 2017, Krikor’s Saudi now gets a vinyl pressing courtesy of Long Island Electrical Systems (Svengalisghost, Simoncino). The sides of Saudi were originally made for a French TV documentary that focussed on the questionable dealings of the Saudi royal family, and Krikor makes sure to instil his music with plenty of murk and shade. Grainy ambiences evolve into eerie minimal synth numbers, Balearic beats bang a little too loud for comfort, and Krikor generally makes you sit up and pay attention.

Circling Vultures
Game of Chance

This four track EP is the follow up record by Circling Vultures called Game of Chance. Described as 'psychedelic machine music', this mini album is definitely one to add to your collection. A proper underground mix of club tunes that will make the impending apocalypse seem a little more real. Available on vinyl 12" and released on L.I.E.S. 

51717 (Shadowlust)
Paranoia Star

51717 (Shadowlust) goes full-length for this new release on L.I.E.S.. Paranoia Star features not only tracks but actual songs, and is full of experimental electronics of various stripes as well as those lush L.I.E.S.-style synths and rhythms. It's a hell of a statement actually, drawing on years of life lived and sounds heard. Good stuff, and it comes with a poster!

Maxxxbass
Gone Fishing

Long Island Electrical Systems aka L.I.E.S. love a bit of obfuscation, and this latest LP from Maxxx Bass has heaps of it. The strange cover, the lack of track titles and the obtuse, drifting sonics within Gone Fishing will have been music to label-boss Ron Morelli’s ears. That said, this is not an unwelcoming record from an artist who has previously released on L.I.E.S. through his group KWC 92. Found sound, FM electronics, synth choirs and gentle flutes all bob in the stream of this nine-part affair. The overall effect lands somewhere between Fennesz and a wordless Panda Bear.

Fernando
s/t

Spooky electro from the Brooklyn based experimental electronic music label L.I.E.S.. Fernando takes the long stagnant genre and twists it into something that feels new. There's a touch of the hauntological about these tracks too, as though Fernando has had to dig them up and rescue each one.

TV.OUT
Further

When not running their Paralaxx label, Tel Aviv duo TV.OUT like nothing more than to unwind with a little bit of doom-laden techno. The three entries on Further will all sound suitably portentous when eating up the club at four in the morning. ‘Moon’ brings to mind early Legowelt, while ‘Galaxy’ and the title track recall the excellent collaborations between Bok Bok and Tom Trago. Out via the more-than-capable Long Island Electrical Systems.

Florian Kupfer
Florian Kupfer

Back on Ron Morelli’s grinding L.I.E.S. imprint, Florian Kupfer returns for yet more lo-fi, industrially-flavoured, analogue madness that threatens to rattle its house and techno template until it falls clean apart. With track titles like ‘Random Chaos’ and a closer that’s simply the letter ‘Z’, you know what kind of unorthodox attitudes to expect by now.

Marcos Cabral
Buried Alive Twice

Under the Chemotex moniker, New Yorker, Marcos Cabral made some massive club sounds that recalled the days of Rush and Cajual. Under his given name, Cabral released the album L.I.E.S. in 2013 which went largely unnoticed but set him on a new roots-driven course. After and EP and some tracks appearing on compilations, Dancing On Manhattan which appeared on Ben UFO’s Essential Mix being the most notable, he has now recorded an full-length LP, Buried Alive Twice. It is an understated trip that will land you in a crazy cartoon world pulling and pushing you every which way, bringing you down and building you up. There’s a lot going on in these here grooves.

Faster Action
Faster Action

Usually a pairing with Robert Bergmann, Interstellar Funk goes it alone under the Faster Action title for these cheeky tools many DJs would be thankful for. Two tracks offering strong beds of rhythm, the first a 909 explosion and the second a heavier metallic affair. Great backbone stuff for any club set.

Vapauteen
This Coercion Pt. II

Hard-jacking new tracks from Shawn O’Sullivan’s Vapauteen guise, working the project’s signature style of relentless beat-pummel and acidic synth lines. This Coercion Pt. II neatly complements the recent Pt. I: taken as a pair, they add up to some of the year’s most formidable techno, leaving no room for negotiation. Out on the ever-reliable L.I.E.S. imprint.

Circling Vultures
Circling Vultures

Whenever you see a release by L.I.E.S., you know it’s going to be a piece of hard-hitting techno. Circling Vultures deliver nothing less, and this self-titled 12” is sure to blow up your speakers if you turn it up as loud as you want to. Heavy 808 beats combine well with paranoid bass lines, and the occasional dark pad to lighten things up. Highly recommended for your next warehouse/late-night/underwater rave.

Jorge Velez
Animals Disk

Jorge Velez delivers a curious set of “animal-themed electronic exploration”, utilising only, a Microbrute synth and samples from a Fairlight CMI. Animals Disk is overtly digital, almost plastic in tone, but Velez does a good job of rendering these peculiar compositions tuneful and compelling as well as texturally wild. 12” on L.I.E.S.

Dan Physics
Dan Physics

Dan Physics self titled 12" on Brooklyn's L.I.E.S Records, is a dark outing into the past 3 decades of dance music. The New York native is unafraid of cranking up the tempo on this vinyl - the scientist combines spooky and squelchy synths with jacking kicks, hats and snares. It relentlessly grooves whilst tripping you out of your mind. Dan has clearly been in the sonic lab, exemplifying his deep knowledge of techno, house, EBM and industrial weirdness into 3 late night freak-outs.

Samantha Vacation
Samantha's Vacation / Postcards From Mssr Perdu

Twisty mutated house from Samantha Vacation. Here first 12” release for L.I.E.S, White Label consists of two side long tracks that fuse Detroit techno, bass music and a definite leaning towards a headphone listening experience. It’s wickedly warped and a little uneasy. Out on 12” vinyl from L.I.E.S.
