Vazz
Cloud Over Maroma

Cloud Over Maroma is a compilation album by ‘80s Glaswegian duo, Vazz. The duo comprised Hugh Small and Anna Howson. They got some Radio 1 airplay at the time from none other than John Peel. More recently, in 2014, their track Cast Reflection appeared on Fabriclive 78, compiled by Illum Sphere. Cloud Over Maroma is the latest in reissue series from STROOM.

19 Gadi Pirms Sākuma
19 Years Before The Beginning

Although they were in operation for three years until 1991, Latvian avant-garde electronic collective 19 gadi pirms sākuma only got their sole studio album 19 Years Before The Beginning into the public realm in 2005. Now available again on vinyl because of this re-issue on Stroom, this is a chance to re-discover an underground gem. 

Ruins
Occasional Visits

Happy Valentine’s Day from Belgium’s excellent Stroom Records (Pablo’s Eye, DJ Bert & Eagle). The label’s latest drop is a superb collection of early minimal wave/synth-pop from Venetian group Ruins. Active between 1978 and 1985, the group turned out a run of highly evocative Italo LPs during their time together. Occasional Visit collects eight of the best tunes they set to tape between 1981 and 1984. You can imagine a young David Lynch getting lost in these when they first came out.

Cold / James Bernard
Strobe Light Network / Lapis Lazuli

Split 12" on STROOM from Cold and James Bernard. Cold's half is called 'Strobe Light Network', on which the Icelander manages to balance beauty and melancholy through the medium of dub techno. On 'Lapis Lazuli' Bernard created enormous spaces of ambient sound with the occasionally glimmer as vivid as the track's namesake colour.

TRjj
Music Compilation: 12 Dances

TRjj like to keep it mysterious and anonymous, hence their lack of individual biographies and the evocative title of their new release: Music Compilation. To be fair, they aren’t wrong. This LP contains twelve tracks of shuffling moods, with sleepy vocals, ticking drum machines, bass rumbles… Simple, but really quite compelling. Out on Stroom.

Pablo's Eye
Spring Break

Belgium’s STROOM.tv have proved themselves a natty little label over the past couple of years. Their run of unearthing some leftfield electronica gems continues with a release from long-running experimental ambient project Pablo’s Eye. Spring Break compiles eight tracks from down the years, some of which date back to the 90s. This is curious music, evasive yet inviting in a manner which recalls Hype Williams.

Pablo's Eye
Dark Matter

Third part in an anthology series that celebrates the work of Belgian group Pablo’s Eye. ‘Dark Matter’ is a music of hulking grooves buried amidst the haze, connecting multiple strands of the 90s dance explosion. The 12-track archival compilation is being put out by the label STROOM, this trilogy hopefully pulling the project out of historical obscurity.

Benjamin Lew
Le Personnage Principal Est Un Peuple Isolé

In the 80s Benjamin Lew used an analog computer to create a number of miniature sound compositions that had something mysterious about them. Le Personnage Principal Est Un Peuple Isolé is the musical equivalent of looking into your hands at an insect you don't recognise. Created with help from Tuxedomoon's Steven Brown.

48 Cameras
Chosen Songs

48 Cameras are a musical collective spread throughout Belgium, UK and Netherlands. Their music is varied and due to the way they work, some members have never even met each other. This has been going on since 1984. Martyn Bates of Eyeless in Gaza, Andy Cairns of Therapy? and Swans Michael Gira have all played their part in the project in the past. Chosen Songs looks like it may be a retrospective of their best moments. LP on Stroom.

Jason Kolar
Modified PerspectiveS

Perhaps the perspectives in Jason Kolar’s Modified Perspectives are the underlying instruments (vibraphone, guitar, piano etc.) that are modified through the heavy use of deepwater reverb, ambient processing and synthesis? Or perhaps the modification is applied to your own everyday perspectives through listening to Modified Perspectives? Either way, this is a good record.
