Your Crate Has Changed

Proper nutty action from this UK weirdo tag team following their wicked ‘IZOD Days’ LP and a 12” both of which also appeared on Mordant Music. For the numbskulls out there, this is of course the one and only Ekoplekz working with Baron Mordant. Indiv...view item »

Rook to TN34

For the third time, Mordant Music and Ekoplekz unite for a set of fierce experimental bass-heavy audio. With track titles including ‘Britain’s Got Talon’, ‘Gloomy Leper Techno’ and ‘Hastings’, no to mention the shouted lyrics to ‘Less Trap More Clap’,  t...view item »

Leyden Jars
Heat Death

Leyden Jars self-describe their sound as ‘curdled’, and I think there is something in that. They use electronic materials, but they seem aged and tweaked in an organic way, somehow. It is not only the obscured vocals that give Heat Death a human touch: these synth...view item »

Mike Ratledge
Riddles Of The Sphinx

Here’s a fascinating discovery from Mordant Music, a synthesizer score from 1977 to Laura Mulvey’s experimental film ‘Riddles of the Sphinx’, performed by Soft Machine’s Mike Ratledge on synthesizers developed ...view item »

Mordant Music / eMMplekz
Nothing In Here Of Any Value / No Show

It’s a bloody good job I can actually play this thing cuz I think I almost fried my amp the other day, when it overheated while listening to Pan Sonic at full fuckin’ blast during this current heat wave. I’ve been an avid follower of The Mordant...view item »

Thanet
System

The System that Thanet’s latest release turns out to be the Solar System, with these ten tracks starting with the Sun and emanating outwards to the furthest depths of Pluto. These ‘Voyager MiMic’s’ make for a pretty heady journey it must be said. CDr in a clear orange case (so it looks weirder th...view item »

Mordant Music
The Hauntological Song

Got a limited edition one sided etched Mordant Music 10" in and it's a decent one. 'Hauntological Song' starts off with some very regal sounds before building into a groovy, dubby track with lots going on. Little Melodies, nice delay and reverb, funky percussion, fragments of vocal, proper Rolf Harris fat sub-bass. The way it builds is really ...view item »

Tod Dockstader
Bellstomp / Pond Dance / Boingo Background

A massive double helping of scrumptious sonic candy from Mordant Music this week with the super ace ‘Electronic 1’ LP from Tod Dockstader and a delicious side-order served on a 10” platter with drool worthy remixes from ...view item »

Mordant Music
Dead Air / Fallen Faces

Another 7" with a really great b-side is this picture disc by Mordant Music, a right bunch of obscure weirdos who did that 12" picture disc a couple o' years back featuring a grinning child's face on, like a twee infants gallery nightmare cast off. The track is called 'Dead Air' & is a rumbling warped breakbeat job with a right funky ...view item »

Phlekz
Off E.P

Six tracks assembled from assorted archives, on which Phlekz leads us through oddly shaped electronic tunnels that pleasingly disorientate the listener. You could dance and shuffle to this, but most likely only in a significantly altered state. Single sided C60 cassette on Mordant Music’s label....view item »

Mordant Music & David Rudkin
Pinvin reMMix

An esoteric conversation that touches on faith and history held between David Rudkin and Sukhdev Sandhu, blended in with some queasy abstracted sound from Mordant Music. The whole thing is powerfully odd, disorientating my thinking in just a few minutes. Pinvin reMMix is served up on a ...view item »

Mordant Music
The Tower

Wicked 12" alert!!!! Mordant Music have a seriously essential ultra dark dubby techno 12" out. 'The Tower' comes in four different flavours and they are all mighty tasty but head for the last mix on the B-side 'Smouldering Polaroid' and it's an absolute stonker of a trip to the dark side. Solid percussion and throbbing nasty bass and tota...view item »

Mr Maxted
Personal Player

Mr Maxted hasn’t been sighted in a while, but here he is dropping a fresh (but also plenty vintage-sounding) release onto the Mordant Music label. It’s analogue a-go-go in the world of Maxted, vocodering all over the shop over 80’s synth-boxes and clicky beats. Personal Player is a cas...view item »

Some Truths
Some Friends I Lost To Bedlam, Others I Abandoned There

Oh what has he given me here.  Ian is doling out the records this week and hands me a blue sleeve saying nothing, already I'm floundering. Let me do an investigation.....its by Some Truths and its an album of synth wibbliness. Opener ‘Too Much Bone in Yr Skull’ fizzes and twists and pulses and goes discordant on your ass...view item »

Donald Fraser
Locomotion

Electronics that point to about a hundred different spots on a map and claim that they all mark the spot; that's the sound Donald Fraser musters up on the bombastic Locomotion, his new collection of skittering manoeuvres for Mordant Music. A remix of the piece comes from the label's tape loopy b...view item »

This is the third Vindicatrix release on Mordant Music following somewhat of a silence for a couple of years. This chaps stuff I would say is definitely an acquired taste. His Scott Walker alike vocal stylings I struggle w...view item »

Variables

A new 12" from Mordant Music is always an exciting prospect and this four way split ably demonstrates why, offering a cross-section of what the label's all about at this moment in time. First up is Sii, a new one on me, who rumbles along nicely on a mid-paced track with a distorted vocal refrain which, perhaps unexpectedly, reminds me of some ...view item »

Vindicatrix
Hume / Unborn Vectors

This is peculiar but not entirely unexpected as Vindicatrix is clearly way out on his own. This is an ultra slow crooned version of Michael Jackson's Human Nature' as could have been done by Scott Walker perhaps. An acquired taste I would say. More down my street is the second cut which is a slow burning mid tempo 4/4 techno stomper. Coming acro...view item »

Mordant Music
Picking O'er The Bones

Just arrived is a handy CD on Mordant Music which collects the vinyl releases from Shackleton, Mordant Music and Vindicatrix called 'Picking O'er The Bones'. It's a decent price and a sweet opportunity to get hold of these vinyl only tracks. There are 11 in total and that includes 3 previously unreleased tracks as well as the earlier tunes that are...view item »

Mordant Music
Dead Air

More electronic goodness this week courtesy of Mordant Music. 'Dead Air' is a damn fine album which is a brooding mix of Techno, Electro, Industrial, Pop, Grime, Music Concrete and just out there futuristic sounds. The album also bizarrely has narration by former Thames TV announcer Phillip Elsmore!!! As always the packaging is...view item »

Mr Maxted
Lives & Privacy (94-89)

Every so often the fairies come and bring special things. What a pleasant surprise when the dropped off a wicked LP on Mordant Music. The mysterious Mr. Maxted has a stonking album called 'Lives & Privacy (94-89)'. Now I could probably rant on forever about this but I'll spare the waffle and just tell you that if you like early Human League/ Th...view item »

Shackleton / Mordant Music
El Din (part one) / Olde Wobbly

That Shackleton and Mordant Music split 10" last year (I think) was a stroke of genius. The Mordant track was astonishing. So naturally I'm excited that they've got another split out... First up is the Shackleton side. You can recognize this guys stuff easily as he's honed his own sound and keeps refining it. El Din (Part One) has all his trad...view item »

Tod Dockstader
Electronic Vol. 1

I’ve had some secret knowledge of this release for like over a year or something and I’ve been waiting impatiently for it like an insomniac 5 year old on Christmas eve. Tod Dockstader is a fookin genius, one of electronic music’s all-time greats. This LP, the first part of two volumes was originally released in 19...view item »

eMMplekz
You Might Also Like

Some esoteric ravings from the Ekoplekz and Mordant Music mash up eMMplekz. You Might Also Like is a dystopian nightmare, in a supremely English fashion. Ian Hicks waxes lyrical about a range of topics in his darkly dulcet tones, whilst Nick Edwards supplies his customary dubbed out bleeps and bloops. It's Mike Skinner ...view item »

Pyramids of Space
POS

Despite remaining a staunchly anonymous release, 'POS' is the work of Pyramids of Space, a supposedly loose and roster-based electronic music group based in Cornwall through the mid-nineties, with a strong dedication to respecting classic traditions of the genre. 'POS sounds a lot like ambient and house stalwarts Global Communication. Made by a ...view item »

Thanet

I spent ages last night writing about this from home, outside and beyond the call of duty. I thought it was worth doing as there is a lot to imbibe over the three discs. Then to my horror I lost the whole fucking lot!!!! AAAAAAAAArrrrrrrrrrghhHGhH!!! So with limited time I'll write a few words. This is the work o...view item »

Ekoplekz
Fountain Square EP

I am really seriously intrigued by just about everything that comes out on the Mordant label these days. Probably because I know Baron Mordant has got proper clever ears, not fake A&R coke head ears. Massive floppy basset hound ears that prick up whenever quality electronic music of a certain vintage occurs within earshot. This EP is by a ma...view item »

Mr Maxted
Momentum

We've been fortunate to score some copies of this wicked tape of total post industrial analogue synthesizer heaven. Anyone that picked up the LP will know what to expect; futuristic, dark, raw electronics that have benefited for yee good old tape saturation. This really is fantastic malfunctioning sci-fi, that sounds like it was created in some ...view item »

Mordant Music
SyMptoMs (Version) / I'm Not Your Mate, Mate

The new Mordant Music CD 'SyMptoMs' is a fine collection of reflective, evocative electronic music - the feel of these tunes more within the realms of ambient techno & downtempo electronica such as Orbital (without the clanky dated beats, natch!) but sometimes infused with some cool near spoken word vocals or muffled mantras that recall a less ...view item »

Vindicatrix
Die Alten Bosen Lieder

I've been gagging to listen to the Vindicatrix Die Alten Bosen Lieder 12" and CD set on Mordant Music all week and now I finally get my opportunity. 'Something In The Night' is a slow, dark and brooding 4/4 track with lots of eerie sounds that have kind of a gothic horror vibe to them, the vocals have this bizarre sophisticated european thing ...view item »

Cosmic Dennis Greenidge

Cosmic Dennis Greenidge: 'Giant Man, Giant Plan' (Mordant) More strangeness from the spooky world of Mordant. A label bracketted in with Ghostbox as leaders in the new genre dubbed Hauntological. This sixty six track assortment, although not evidently scary, is sometimes worrying and completely downright wrong. Made on a mono tape-to-tape...view item »

24 Million Or Sell Neverland

The previous 10"s where Shackleton and Mordant Music have been paired up were both fantastic and here they go again with some more broody bass business. The Mordant Music track (Jacko tribute '24 Million or Sell Neverland') that kicks things off features a constant face-massaging throb underneath a techno-paced beat that's sure to make you boun...view item »

The Tower-parts VIII-XVIII

Two releases from Mordant Music- which is also the name of the label- "Carrion Squared" is a spooked & slightly unsettling and dark largely keyboard and FX dominated collection of brief vignettes ideal for film, TV scenes or wrong brain soundtracks. If used for TV they'd probably be used for some 'end of the world' type scenario or do...view item »

Shackleton / Mordant Music
I Want To Eat You/ Hummmdrummm

Shackleton does the dubstep thing with cool conga rhythms and plenty of echo. The percussion is of the funky ants in your pants variety. The track evolves with a rumbling bassline, vocal samples and flute like melodies. Mordant's contribution on the flip is rather splendid too with a loop that just sinks into your brain and so...view item »
