Pavel Milyakov (Buttechno)
La Maison De La Mort

Pavel Milyakov is known for his original take on dance under the name Buttechno. On La Maison De La Morte he creates shapeless soundscapes that recall the soundtrack work of electronic composer Eduard Artemyev or perhaps Autechre’s  Chiastic Slide album. The expansive nature of the music can be compared to Pete Kember’s (Spacemen 3) work. It’s certainly something that will appeal to all you Normanites out there! Double LP on Berceuse Heroique.

Mori Ra
Brasserie Heroique Edits Part 6

Osaka cheeky chappy Mori Ra returns to Berceuse Heroique sublabel The Brasserie Heroique Edits for a second contribution to their series of twelves. Simply lush production here. Side A leans closer to eighties electro, with harsh percussion and chipmunk vocals. Side B goes more for jaunty, psychedelic house and cosy melodies.

Black Merlin
Void

The adventurous George Thompson released Kosua as Black Merlin earlier this year. The album blends Thompson’s Papua New Guinea field recordings with industrial ambience and drones, resulting in sinister-sounding exotica. His new EP Void for Berceuse Heroique exchanges exotica for chilly vintage machinery, with minimal throbs, heavily ‘verbed drones and the occasional twinkly arpeggio.

Hodge
Exogenesis

Bristolian Jake Martin (a.k.a., Hodge) busts out another EP for Berceuse Heroique. Does ‘Exogenesis’ refer to Martin’s own beliefs regarding humanity’s origin, or is it just his favourite episode of Babylon 5? Could it be his favourite Muse song? In any case, there are 808s, there are vocal samples, there are moody bits and less moody bits. ‘Bam’ is a very strong piece of polyrhythmic techno, while the other standout ‘Night Run’ offers a charming beach party vibe.

Don't DJ
All Love Affairs Fail But They Never End EP

Wise words from Don’t DJ there. All Love Affairs Fail But They Never End is a somnambulant, wistful collection of techno-noir. Don’t DJ’s originals range from purring electronica in the vein of Jan Jelinek (‘Veles’) to lengthy and pensive synth ambiences (‘Two Of Pentacles’). Newworldaquarium provides a deep, minimal and ethereal re-rub of ‘Veles’.

CVX
Zibaldone III Of CVX

The third instalment of Rupert Clervaux’s Zibaldone Of CVX series is a collection of ‘multi-angle audio mosaics’ from the London-via-Mallorca sound artist. While Zibaldone III may initially seem obtuse and hostile, if you persevere you’ll stumble on some rather profound stuff. Synthesising snippets of spoken text - poetry, radio broadcasts, lectures, you name it - with everything from lo-fi techno to closing-time piano jazz, CVX has made an oddly compelling work here. Imagine Karlheinz Stockhausen if he’d ever hooked up with Jan Jelinek.

Duckett
Emperor's New Clothes EP

Berceuse Heroique (Don’t DJ, Jay Glass Dubs) front a new EP, apparently the first in a series, from the seasoned Duckett. There’s a knowingly wry aspect to the producer entitling this record Emperor’s New Clothes - having been around the block a few times, Duckett isn’t counting on his chirpy leftfield techno style to reinvent the wheel. It’s this sense of low expectations that gives these six tunes freedom. As such, this is a welcoming listen that wears its quirks with pride. Think Bullion, John Talabot and suchlike.

Marcello Napoletano presents Ra Toth And The Brigantes Orchestra
Introspettivo EP

Three killer electro tracks on this 12” EP from Marcello Napoletano presents Ra Toth and The Brigantes Orchestra. Introspettivo is the title track and it puts some fun into what can often be a cold and clinical sounding genre in electro. There are some ‘80s vibes going throughout which remind me of someone like Jovonn’s glistening house synth but with some cosmic jazz layered on top. The B side ventures further into experimental jazz and the connection with Sun Ra is undeniable.    Limited 12” EP, limited to one copy per customer.

Black Merlin
Proto World EP

Continuing the string of leftfield dance 12”s issued on Berceuse Heroique, Black Merlin’s beat-pointed soundscapes guide listeners into distant, yet commanding realms, switching worlds between tracks, yet always on the side of atmospheric unease. Four tracks of hypnotic material to transport and transfix.

Benoit B
Japonaiserie

Vincent Van Gogh coined the term Japonaiserie to describe the influence Japanese art had on him and his contemporaries. German DJ, producer and head honcho of Banlieue Records, Benoit B has nicked the term to title his seven-track mini LP - a warm, yet futuristic sounding work influenced by the Japanese electronic music of the ‘80s. 12" on Berceuse Heroique.

Heap
The Brasserie Heroique Edits Part 5

A three track 12" from Heap, containing lower tempo retroactive techno with a distinct influence from the dancier end of industrial musics. As the EP progresses it becomes strangely moving at times, pretty twisted at others, with synths, mutant vocals and distant, cosmic bleeps exchanging the limelight.

Hodge
Beneath Two Moons

Your classic 'thud-thud-thud' electronic collection here. Hodge has released a 4 track E.P entitled Beneath Two Moons and it's actually pretty good. It sounds like something you'd here in a club - anywhere from the late 80's, through the 90's and beyond 2018 - at 3am at the peak of your youthful night. Available on 12" and released on Berceuse Heroique.

Zov Zov
Fata Morgana

Zov Zov is Oliver Ho (aka Broken English Club) and Tommy Gillard, a partnership here resulting in contrasting timbres of physical and synthetic sound. Shades of ritual sound creep in, offering a gentle sense of delicacy alongside the post-industrial threats from heavier instruments and woozy rhythmic explorations. A captivating and rewarding listen.

DJ Spider & Franklin De Costa
F Planet

Spacious and claustrophobic at the same time, DJ Spider & Franklin De Costa's 'F Planet' gives us grumbling, percussive techno, rising and dipping in sonic height. The free manipulations lend the tracks a unique sense of life, patches of noise here, wild frequency and filter shifts there, evolving in two directions at once. Includes a killer remix by the mighty Shifted (Avian, Mote-Evolver, Hospital Productions).

Don't DJ
Wiedergänger

Don’t DJ (AKA Florian Meyer/fff) has had releases on Mother’s Finest, Svbterrean Tapes and Wisdom Teeth. Now returning to Berceuse Heroique with this two track EP of polarised experimental techno house. Wiederganger is chaotic, confusing, and paranoia inducing, scatty rhythms that mesh and unravel to the point of making any sense, with the reverse playing it straight (for the most part), minimal and with a uniquely bizarre sound palette.

Loud-E
The Brasserie Héroïque Edits Part 4

Four heavy disco edits extracted from Dutchman and Intergalactic FM regular Loud-E's 'Loudiefied' CD from back in 2008, all cut to 180g wax for DJ use. There are four funk-filled edits of pure dancefloor fuel for good times. Super limited edition, and bound to be sought after by Disc Jockeys. Snap this up while you can or weep later.

Ossia
Gridlock EP

Ossia of the Bristol based Young Echo collective has had releases on Blackest Ever Black and Empty Head Rich Heart. Now on his second 12” for Berceuse Heroique, Gridlock’s Tumult is a stark, percussion led, breakbeat techno track with the bare minimum filtered noises pulsing through. Comes backed with a remix from Lurka.

Don't DJ
Gammellan

Polyrhythm obsessive Florian Meyer AKA Don’t DJ appears on this notoriously oblique imprint to further entwine Indonesia-inspired gamelan psychedelia and minimal techno for the chinstroking auteur. This 12” is a repress, one year on from its original release – includes the Dresvn remix on the reverse.

Mori Ra
The Brasserie Heroique Edits Part 3

The deeply affecting weirdness that certain Japanese artists have blended with Western rooted music forms is so addictive. Mori Ra’s groove ridden 12” continues decades of wonky reinterpretation that has seen subtle madness creep into electronic pop music, disco, synthetic funk and various waves alongside.

Interstellar Funk
Caves Of Steel

Interstellar Funk presents Caves Of Steel, a hectic whirl of funked-up Detroit-style techno. In addition to the straight-up Interstellar Funk jams, this release includes a track with a guest spot by Jeroen and a wild n’ punchy remix of the title track by Convextion. Caves Of Steel is out on Berceuse Heroique.

Don't DJ
Musique Acéphale

Don’t DJ’s new double LP release is designed as a demonstration of his concept of ‘Musique Acéphale’, in which tracks try and escape from the traditions of linear time: rather than clearly starting and finishing, these pieces just ‘are’ for a while, and the listener is encouraged to wander around inside the sounds, finding new places to focus all the way. Banging. 2LP on Berceuse Heroique.

Mei Tahat
Dayworld

Say hello to Dayworld, the 3-track debut of Mei Tahat - a collaboration between Jordan 'Jordache' Czamanski and Ilya Ziblat Shay. The offering is as frenetic as it is hallucinating, especially the staunchly sprawling Cube Rude remix of Dayworld, which is an over-eight-minute long electronic expedition.

Jorge Velez
Adam & Eve

Jorge Velez doesn’t sit still long enough for definition, with his recent full length on L.I.E.S. he went full blown Arthur Russell on the experimentation, on Adam & Eve for Berceuse Heroique he dips into much more disco experimentation, with Baby Whale being a more straight laced synth clap and kick affair, and the title track picking more musique concrète charms in a groove.

Marco Bernardi
The Dancing Clowns

It is generally assumed that Marco Bernardi is underrated despite a prolific back catalogue on labels such as Mathmatics and Creme - though The Dancing Clowns, his new 12” slice may change all that. This is out on Berceuse Heroique Inc. and over it’s beautifully paced 15 minutes recalls the days when Detroit techno groundbreaker Carl Craig could do no wrong. On the flip is a Specter remix.

Japan Blues
Stoned Bird

Japan Blues (aka Ethbo Records founder and Honest Jon’s affiliate Howard Williams) releases Stoned Bird, a lively set of edits that cheerfully swallow up source material and turn out groovy movers. Please note that this is a strictly limited vinyl edition, so only one copy per customer! On Berceuse Heroique.

Hodge
Forms Of Life

Jacob Martin of Outboxx’s solo project Hodge has had a pretty big handful of releases on Hemlock, Tempa and Punch drunk, with 5 under his belt this year he’s certainly on it. Forms of Life comes in three forms, a warm sunset house tune, a caustic 5am techno banger, and a broody techno journey for when you’re way past recognition.

Don't DJ
Hexentrix

Hexentrix by Don’t DJ sees Florian Meyer put West African polyrhythms and US minimalism into the pot and mix up a euphoric stew of apocalyptic bass, hypnotic beats and sublime melody. On the flip Jordan GCZ (of Juju & Jordash) introduces elements of free jazz to his remix whilst adding otherworldly synth sounds that recall Terrence Brown. On Berceuse Heroique Inc.

Smackos
The Age Of Candy Candy

Here we have a reissue of a release that originally came out only as a CDr in 2004. Smackos is an alias for Legowelt, and The Age Of Candy Candy is an ambient excursion that apparently follows a Japanese legend… Good to see this near-forgotten work resurrected as a full double LP, courtesy of the Berceuse Heroique label.

Koehler and Kuno
Anti Gravity Switch

Koehler and Kuno turn up on Berceuse Heroique with Anti Gravity Switch, a fidgeting, shuffling, wonked-up banger and no mistake. Their track is paired here with its own mighty mutated form, as remixed by A Made Up Sound. This 12” is limited edition don’t forget, so hurry along Heroique fans!

Beneath
Shlocky

What lies Beneath? The answer, apparently, is a range of your favourite down-and-dirty genres, smashing it intensely. Techno, acid, grime… Plenty of activity. Schlocky takes place over two 12” records: certainly enough material to keep you busy. 180g vinyl, nice sleeve with a poster included, on Berceuse Heroique.

Manuel Gonzales
Full Frontal

The record is called Full Frontal, and is out on interesting-dancing-music label Berceuse Heroique, so that gives you some idea of what to expect. And Manuel Gonzales does not let us down: these tracks are legit banging and relentless. Classic influences are apparent, but all delivered with a fresh punkish edge.

Hodge
You Better Lie Down

Hodge has been turning out hot releases for a number of labels recently, and now he brings his sound to Berceuse Heroique. You Better Lie Down, the title commands you, but that wouldn’t make too much sense when listening to this, because Hodge’s slightly wonky (in a good way) tunes will make you want to dance, and thats best done standing up.

Healing Force Project
Strange Apparitions In My Recording Room

Berceuse Heroique presents this limited 12’ from Healing Force Project, enticingly titled Strange Apparitions In My Recording Room. Also includes ‘Hashman Deejay’s Ambient Mix’ of the same track, which I know you want to hear. If nothing else, great naming going on for this release, the music itself is pretty banging too.

Duster Valentine / Jamal Moss
The Brasserie Heroique Edits Part 1

Remix wizard Jamal Moss teams up with Paul Bennet aka Duster Valentine on this stomping 'nu disco' track. Taken from a new batch of edits amusingly entitled 'Brasserie Heroique' by the legend that is Berceuse Heroique, this is the first of the series. This limited edition vinyl 12" is strictly one copy per customer.

Vereker
Flesh And Blood

Crucial techno from British born, San Francisco-based producer Oliver Vereker. Gritty and energetic, the title track is a dirty classic whilst the flip side exercises a more freeform vibe. Strictly limited edition, this one will be flying off the shelves. Limited to one copy per customer so don't miss out!
