Perko
NV Auto

The latest Numbers drop surfaces courtesy of newcomer Perko. On NV Auto the Scottish-born, Denmark-based Perko manages to do the impossible and breathe new life into the flagging sound of revivalist rave. The halcyon glow of a tune like ‘Rounded’ is toughened up with influences from UK garage, dub techno and the soundsystem innovations of Peverelist, Young Echo et al. We expect there's more to come from this fella.

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.

Pete Spiby
Failed Magician

Guitarist Pete Spiby, formerly of alt. rock bands Black Spiders, Groop Dogdrill and Future Ex-Wife thought his career was over after an operation on his hand meant he could no longer play. Black Spiders tried a few farewell shows and Spiby realised he could play without pain. He had to get back to doing the only thing he knew how to do - rock. Failed Magician is his debut solo album. LP and CD on Be Lucky.

Peter Gordon
Eighteen

Peter Gordon’s first LP in three years arrives courtesy of Foom (Rhys Chatham, Peter Zummo). On Eighteen Gordon is ably assisted by Gabe Guernsey (Factory Floor), Larry Saltzman (Arthur Russell) and Paul Nowinski (LOLO) here. The group craft instrumentals of autumnal beauty that are at once too woozy to be dance music, too silvery to be r&b, and too synthetic to be soul. They are what they are, and they are beautiful.

Peter Harris
Adverts!

Eccentric artist and musician Peter Harris, from London band Piper’s Son, doesn’t know how to describe the music on his new solo album, Adverts, so I’ll have a go. It’s a teeny bit Elliott Smith and a teeny bit Roy Harper, with some cosmic oddball elements thrown in. He seems to have the backing of Lee ’Scratch’ Perry and Adrian Sherwood too. Vic Goddard guests. LP on Trashmouth Records.

Peverelist
Bluez (Classic mix) / Und_92

Man like Peverelist takes us on a trip down memory lane. Back in the late ‘00s the Bristolian boss was still making stuff that was recognisable as dubstep. ‘Bluez’, a tune that appeared on his 2009 debut LP Jarvik Mindstate, is a sick cosmic 140-bpm jam. This Punch Drunk reissue also features ‘Und_92’, a 2008 track exhumed from the vaults for this drop. Heard with modern ears the seeds of the bassweight techno style Peverelist would go on to popularise with his Livity Sound label are definitely kicking about here.

Phil France
Circle

Electric piano arpeggiator Phil France, known from suave jazz outfit Cinematic Orchestra, releases his second. Circle, like predecessor the Swimmer, is filled with spacious, calm, and soothing notes. A lot of notes. Get on it if you’ve always wanted to hear a collaboration between Emeralds and Philip Glass.

Phil Pratt & Friends
The War Is On Dub Style

Back in the 80s, Bethnal Green studio Easy Street was one of the hubs of the UK reggae scene, cutting dubs for artists like Sugar Minott and Alton Ellis. Phil Pratt recorded the tracks for The War Is On Dub Style back in Jamaica with a band who numbered Sly & Robbie among its ranks, but overdubs and mixing was done at Easy Street. The LP has become a highly sought-after 80s dub album on the vinyl black market, in part thanks to its trademark rough-and-ready Easy Street sound, but now it can be yours for a standard fee courtesy of a reissue from Pressure Sounds.

Phono Ghosts
Photons In Fashion

So what Blackpool’s Phono Ghosts does is sample some tapes, run them through an audio workstation on his computer, then chop them up and reassemble them to form new shapes. The resulting tracks that make up Photons In Fashion are a hypnagogic re-rendering of ‘80s synth sounds. As in - Vaporwave. That said, the way that this set of ‘wave jams layers up its vocals is a tad more psychedelic than your Macintosh Pluses and your James Ferraro’s.

Phuture
We Are Phuture (Ricardo Villalobos Phutur I - IV Remixes)

Lets go back to the Phuture with this exciting double 12” reissue and remix package. As well as the original vintage 1998 acid track (remastered), we get not one but four(!) remixes from the maestro Ricardo Villalobos, fully expanding on several ideas of what to do with this killer source material. Double 12” from Get Physical.

Pig Destroyer
Head Cage

Sixth album from the highly lethal Pig Destroyer. On Head Cage enact their brand of grindcore in a incredibly precise and hypnotic fashion. As a unit they are absolutely undefeated. Lyricist JR Hayes takes out his frustration on the darker aspects of our world, but I'm not sure what the band's problem with our snout-having earth-mates is. 

Pinch
The Boxer / Swish (Kromestar Remixes)

Some old Pinch jams have the ruler run over them by dubstep OG Kromestar . ‘The Boxer’ and ‘Swish’ were already pretty weighty tomes when they surfaced at the beginning of the 2010s, but these re-rubs really go for the jugular. ‘The Boxer (Kromestar’s Southpaw Remix)’ pummels you into submission with huge square-wave bass hits, while the ‘Swish’ flip is a triple-time jam reminiscent of the title track from Silkie’s recent Impervious EP for Deep Medi. This one’s a Tectonic drop.

Pinegrove
Skylight

Sad Americana lot Pinegrove dropping by with their third full-length now. Skylight sounds a bit like Death Cab for Cutie and Wilco got together for an album they didn’t really want to make. The result is a decent bunch of catchy sing-along anthems for when you’re stuck in rainy rush-hour traffic.

Pino Donaggio
A Venezia Un Dicembre Rosso Shocking

First faithful reissue of the soundtrack to Nicolas Roeg's clunkily named A Venezia Un Dicembre Rosso Shocking. Though no way near as well known as big man Ennio Morricone (how could he be?), Pino Donaggio deserves to be spoken of alongside him for being able to capture the specific mood of Venice.

Planet B
Planet B

Star-studded, self-titled debut album by hot new electro-hardcore duo Planet B (Justin Pearson of Dead Cross, Retox and The Locust plus Luke Henshaw of Sonido de la Frontera). They are joined by fellow Locusts Gabe Serbian and Joseph Karam, Kool Keith, Nick “Yeah Yeah Yeahs” Zinner, Killing Joker Martin Atkins… the list could go on.

Planetary
Origins EP

Dan Curtin’s Planetary project made a couple of EPs of astral techno in the early ‘90s. The second of these, 1993’s Origins, combined keening synths and plenty of psychedelic production tricks with clattering breaks. It's deep-space stuff. With the current trend for revivalist rave sounds bringing this sort of thing very much back into vogue of late, now feels like a good time for Origins to be given the reissue treatment. Metamorphic Recordings oblige.

Planetary Assault Systems
The Electric Funk Machine

Planetary Assault Systems’ The Electric Funk Machine turned twenty in 2017. Considering that so many of the current crop of rave revivalists - Lone, FaltyDL and that - are jacking Luke Slater’s late-’90s steez, the time feels right for one of his finest achievements to be rolled out and receive another round of applause. This LP is a nice balance of European and Detroit techno stylings. Reissue via Peacefrog.

PLYXY
Gloryland

After being issued as a small cassette run by Ascetic House in early 2018 PLYXY’s Gloryland now gets a re-release via Hallow Ground. As is the want of the Swiss label, this record is a pretty frosty and demanding listen. The gnarled, weary synthscapes here recall Forest Swords and fellow HG act Dedekind Cut. Closer ‘March Of Youth’ breaks out into full-on noise.

Popcaan
Forever

Popcaan has spent the years since 2014’s debut LP Where We Come From consolidating his seat at the top table by working with artists like Gorillaz and Jamie xx. His new full-length Forever finds him take Vybz Kartel’s vacant throne as King Of The Dancehall with a series of crossover bangers. His chirpy, melodious flow pairs well with riddims that show influences of bashment, trap, hip-hop, Afrobeats and more.

Posatronix
Danz EP

Some nice 90s electro-funk here courtesy of Posatronix. Originally released in 1997, Danz is now a window into a time when Detroit techno was just beginning to go down the rabbit hole. The likes of ‘Night Vision’ have that slightly manic quality you get from running acid trax at a tempo higher than 130 bpm. When you take into account their frantic drum programming and boinging basslines, the three cuts here are still likely to whip crowds up into a frenzy. Reissued via Direct Beat.

Positive Centre
The Leaf Switch

Opal Tapes. Very good label. One of the best, in fact. If you’re unfamiliar with the Teesside imprint then Positive Centre’s The Leaf Switch is as good a place to start as any. This is a record of terse, frosty electronics/found sound instrumentals. They range from dog-eared synth ambiences to the kind of obtuse anti-techno that The Trilogy Tapes has been so keen on recently.

Positive Centre
Forever Optimum

Positive Centre rounds off an excellent 2018 in which he has already dropped work via Opal Tapes and In Silent Series with an LP for Horo (ASC, Ontal). Forever Optimum oscillates between two equally menacing electronic styles. On the one hand we have lumbering, slightly industrialised techno takes like ‘Ossified Cobalt’; on the other, haunting ambient vistas not a world away from Rainforest Spiritual Enslavement. Forever Optimum is eerie and memorable.

Posthuman
The Snake Bites Twice

Posthuman present four new powerful slices of their sound, featuring (we are promised) even more energy than their previous releases. The Snake Bites Twice is positively drenched in acid, and tracks like ‘Down 2 Jakk’ will bring the rave into your home in seconds flat. 12” EP on the Craigie Knowes imprint.

Powell Tillmans
Spoken By The Other

Intriguing collaboration between Turner Prize-winning photographer/music-maker Wolfgang Tillmans and discordant-club-botherer Powell. Released under the name of Powell Tillmans, ‘Spoken By The Other’ is their first release together - a 12” coming out via XL, who put out Powell’s debut LP ‘Sport’ back in 2016. Tillman’s voice and Powell’s mid-range, synthetic gruff forms a complete synthesis across these six tracks. The release is limited to a one-off, 1500 copy run.

Praed
Doomsday Survival Kit

Thrilling and unique take on chaabi from the Lebanese duo Praed. ‘Doomsday Survival Kit’ takes familiar cues from the hyperactive form of music, but the way in which they fuse the clarinet into the sound concocts something truly distinct. It's the way the clarinet interweaves and reacts against the restless rhythms and vibrant synths, an inspired synthesis.

Preacherman
Preacherman Plays T.J. Hustler’s Greatest Hits

Tim Jones is one of those oddballs that you can neither imagine nor plan for. Back in the 1980s Jones performed in Las Vegas lounges under the name of Preacherman. He used to bring a wooden puppet on stage with him named T. J. Hustler, and the pair would engage in philosophical back-and-forths between the psychedelic funk numbers that Jones pounded out on a Hammond/Moog Frankensynth. Now Luaka Bop have snapped up some of the rare-as-hen’s-teeth tracks Jones cut at the time for this compilation. These are highly idiosyncratic numbers that wed home-spun dance grooves to the simultaneously focussed and free-form musings of a singular mind. In Preacherman Plays T. J. Hustler’s Greatest Hits, the label may have another Who Is William Onyeabor? situation on their hands.

Primitive Art
Crab Suite

Arcola Records is having a good 2018. The label has already scored hits with drops from Nkisi, Jamal Moss, Basic Rhythm and more. Primitive Art’s Crab Suite EP maintains their good form into the second half of the year. This is a brilliantly mucky affair, with various soundsystem cross-pollinations (dub techno, dancehall, Reggaeton) pulled apart by techniques from the world of industrial techno. Shrouded in reverb, delay and distortion, tracks like ‘Sequrity’ and ‘Recall Your Bones’ nod simultaneously to Basic Channel, Arca and Shackleton.

Prins Emanuel
Arbete / Fritid

Work and leisure; seldom shall the twain meet. It’s the great, arbitrary binary of modernity, as well as a core theme of this debut LP by Prins Emanuel of Sweden. His Royal Highness has quite the knack for funky, exotic house music, and a soft touch with his shuffling production. He’s fibbing about the ‘work’ bit though - this is two sides o’ pure leisure.

Public Access TV
Street Safari


Sophomore LP from New York four-piece Public Access TV. Singles Metrotech and Lost in the Game feature infectious funk-inspired basslines, signalling a widening of horizons for the rockers. Never Enough is largely inspired by the band’s tumultuous last couple of years - including battles with addiction and each other. On Cinematic Music Group.

Public Image Limited
The Public Image Is Rotten (Songs From The Heart)

It's pleasing that perhaps John Lydon will be remembered just as much for his PIL project as with punk legends the Sex Pistols. Over recent years people seem to have realised that, yes, PIL were pretty innovative. To coincide with a film about the band, here is a career spanning box set with a singles collection, B-sides, rarities, radio sessions and a ton of live recordings. More Rotten than you'll probably ever need. 

Public Memory
Demolition

The sophomore LP from Public Memory arrives courtesy of Felte (Soviet Soviet, Autobahn). Demolition is a brooding and abrasive listen that recalls that period in the '90s when hip-hop started morphing into all sorts of strange new styles. Trip-hop, Krautrock and the paranoid plunderphonics of early DJ Shadow all exert a strong influence on these eight tunes.

Puredigitalsilence
Circumfluence

We've got ourselves a rare Korean electronics gem here. Puredigitalsilence’s Circumfluence was originally released on a short CD run in 1998, and the record was assumed lost to the sands of time before the folk at Daehan Electronics resurrected it for this reissue. Good on them - this LP’s sky-scraping drones, equal parts My Bloody Valentine, Deerhunter and bvdub, are more than worth a second hearing.

Purple Image
Purple Image

*Extremely John Lydon voice* Purple Imaaa-aaaaaage! Purple Imaaa-aaaaaage! Of course, this LP actually has nothing to do with The Artist Formerly Known As Johnny. It’s actually a rare 1970 funk-rock record from Cleveland, Ohio band Purple Image. As one could probably guess from the title there’s more than a bit of Hendrix to this one. This reissue comes courtesy of Tidal Waves Music.

Quaker City Night Hawks
QCNH

Quaker City Night Hawks hail from Texas. Their music is imbued with all the hallmarks of ‘70s southern rock you’d expect to hear, plus a certain amount of Joe Walsh-era Eagles. QCNH is their fourth studio album and follow-up to their Lightning Rod debut, El Astronauta. LP and CD on Lightning Rod.

R. Girardin
Emotional Music

NYC-based specialists in weird pop and experimental electronic music, Palto Flats release the debut album from R. Girardin entitled 'Emotional Music'. It's a record on which Girardin explores his new-found love of customised, quirky sounding synthesizers and expresses a pure, naive joy through them. As a result, the combination of man and machines speaks of ecstatic, poetic and spiritual communion. Vinyl only.

R.S. Pearson
Reality from Childhood Remembered as a Dream

First active in the early 1980s Seattle underground, experimental composer R. S. Pearson finally gets to cross “Get an official release with a label” off his to-do list. Collected for vinyl by Serendip Lab, these various short, charming works of arpeggio sequences and sound design also dabble in algorithmic/generative composition and strange, ambiguous moods. Just what you’d hope for from titles such as ‘Dinosaurs in Water’ and ‘Water Jets of Ancient Disney’.

Rachel Zeffira
Elizabeth Harvest (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack)

Rachel Zeffira is primarily an oboe player, however, she’s also a soprano and can turn her hand to a number of other instruments. What's more, she was in Cats Eyes with Faris Badwan of The Horrors. Her classical background made her an ideal candidate to take on the score for the Sebastian Gutierrez film, Elizabeth Harvest. Using Erik Satie’s Sarabande as a thematic base, the score becomes less conventional and more experimental as it progresses. Clear vinyl LP on Invada.

Radius
Interpolation Tapes [Restoration 3/3]

Hooray for dub techno! The good people at echospace [detroit] have worked very very hard to rescue the aged original tapes that Radius recorded his interpolations on. As the name implies Interpolation Tapes [Restoration 3/3] is the third act in this labour of love. And the hard work has paid off, these tracks sound as good as ever.

Radius
Interpolation Tapes [Restoration 2/3]

A real treat for any fans of Radius. Interpolation Tapes [Restoration 2/3] is the result of a whole years work restoring the music from its original tapes which had begun to decay. Despite all these tracks have been through, the result is as fresh as Radius has ever been. The second release of three.

Randomer
Slicing

Here we find Randomer return to Dekmantel’s UFO Series for the latest set of his particularly brain-bending brand of soundsystem techno. The four dubs on Slicing all go equally hard, but in subtly different ways. For instance: while opener ‘Van Pelt’ recalls a toughened-up version of Cervo’s Afro-Disco, ‘Shadow Harp’ features a pummelling kick pattern that wouldn’t sound out of place on a Beneath tune.

Rapoon
Little Rocket Man And The Planet That Moved

Rapoon is Robin Storey, formerly known to the world as a member of Zoviet France. He’s a busy bee, and new album The Little Rocket Man And The Planet That Moved works as a particularly good example of his well-refined aesthetic: wide, droning soundworlds, propelled by beats and considering the dark state of our planet. Released by Klanggalerie.

Rasmus Hedlund
Intet Efter Allt

Finnish label Ljudverket make it into double-figures courtesy of another drop by Rasmus Hedlund. The four tunes of Intet Efter Allt (Nothing After All) are icy affairs that bring together big-room techno, acid-techno, dub-techno and a few other strands of that there techno. Sombre synths and minor-key pads abound whether Hedlund is operating at 120 bpm or 140 bpm. Imagine a moodier version of Bjarki.

Ratgrave
Ratgrave

Ratgrave is the new project from Julius Conrad and Max Graef. From squelchy electro-funk to smooth, chilled vibes via some more erratic beats, this album has everything you want for a good night in or out. It was recorded over a three year period in three different locations, although they are keen to point out that they were all on terra firma, and we can only assume that this informed the record’s final outcome. Ludwig L lends additional EFX to the album. LP on Apron.

Ravi Shankar
The Rough Guide to Ravi Shankar

Maestro Ravi Shankar, virtuoso of the sitar helped to bring traditional Indian Classical music to millions of us Westerners since the '60s. Those kind folks at Rough Guide have collected together a few of Shankar's classic ragas as a kind of taster, an appetiser of a whole world of wonderful riches. Yes, some guys called 'The Beatles' and 'The Byrds' -- and lots of other psychedelia-minded folks named after misspelt animals -- adored him. LP on World Music Network with extra tracks as a download via the included code card.

Realistic Monk (Carl Stone & Miki Yui)
Realm

Fresh from his recent exciting archival release and her very fine Cuspeditions album, Carl Stone and Miki Yui present their collaborative work together under the name Realistic Monk. Their first ‘studio’ recording, Realm is a set of relatively concise pieces, blending an array of micro-edited samples and other electronics into beguiling and lovely structures. Released by Meakusma.

Recondite
Daemmerlicht

Bavaria's Lorenz Brunner releases his fifth LP as Recondite, his first in 3 years, named Daemmerlicht. The record contains suitably twilit material, as Brunner eschews his trademark blend of acid and techno for a largely more downbeat affair -- incorporating elements of ambient, hip hop and even classical music. Spacious, expansive music to soundtrack the lengthening Spring days and later dusks.

After posting two entries on their Realm Of Consciousness compilations, German mainstay Recondite can now add a full EP for Afterlife to a CV that already includes drops on Ghostly International, Hotflush and Innervisions. The six tracks that comprise Rainmaker are brooding dystopian tech-house that is not dissimilar to fellow Afterlife signees Tale Of Us and Fideles.

Redd Kross
Hot Issue

Redd Kross are a Californian punk/power pop band led by brothers Steve and Jeff McDonald. Hot Issue gathers together rarities and other unreleased nuggets from the band’s archive. The songs date from 1980, when they were known as Red Cross, and go as far as 2007. Reissue vinyl LP and CD on Merge.

Refrigerator
High Desert Lows

27 years into their career, lo-fi noise band Refrigerator release their 11th album, High Desert Lows. Here, their noise-pop takes a bit of back seat in favour of the more laid-back strings, slide guitar and organ sound of previous albums such as Comedy Plus One. It’s certainly a significant drop in noise level from their last long player, Temple City. It does see the band still improvising and doing what they want to do regardless of pressure from others. LP and CD on Shrimper.

Regan Remy / THUNDERPUSSY
Danger Diva (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack)

Danger Diva is a new cyberpunk thriller from Shredder Orpheus director Robert McGinley. The movie stars Thunderpussy vocalist Molly Sides in the lead role. Both Sides and Thunderpussy contribute, alongside McGinley and Regan Remy, to the soundtrack. This neat little package brings together both movie and OST in one set. It's well weapon.

Remember Sports
Slow Buzz

Remember Sports were once called Sports but we're now invited to Remember Sports. The band have moved from a tiny town to a big one and have added a drummer along the way. This is one of those records that revolves around the emotions suffered at the end of a relationship and showcases the band's most ambitious work to date. 

Respuesta Alternativa
Grata Compania

Jesus Ma Catalana (what a name) cut these five tracks as Respuesta Alternativa back in the early 80s. Loading up his synths and drum machines, he got other musicians to solo over the top of them and create this odd record. Weirdo-lounge jazz meets synth-pop, that sort of thing. Weather Report if they were a one-man bedroom project. Reissued by Left Ear Records.

Reverend Bizarre
In The Rectory Of The Bizarre Reverend

Legendary doom crushers Reverend Bizzare would always put in a double shift on their records, matching their massive, spiteful sound with a whole bunch of unholy humour. This record starts with a polite request to "Burn In Hell" and ends with a Lord of the Rings reference, a tongue-in-cheek acknowledgement that what they're doing is as silly as it is filthy. Their first record, In the Rectory of the Bizarre Reverend, was originally released in 2002 and is a staple of all things doom: loud, slow and long, it clocks at 75 minutes and never once lets up. An absolute classic of Finnish metal. 

Rhyw
Cave Walls (Part One)

Cassegrain member Alex Tsiridis takes it solo for a second time under his Rhyw alias. Cave Walls (Part One) features roughed-up dancefloor tracks and spaced minimal ambient: two different ways of combining traditional and more experimental electronic musics then. This is focused material, with no messing around to be heard. 12” on Avian.

Ricardo Donoso
Calibrate

Denovali (Nadia Struiwigh, Her Name Is Calla) drop the new LP from Brazilian artist Ricardo Donoso. Calibrate sees Donoso going even deeper down the dark IDM/techno path than he did on June’s collaborative LP with Thiago Kochenborger. Frenzied soundscapes like ‘Rendering The Ineffable’ recall Arca, Phase Fatale and Bonaventure in equal measure. Powerful stuff.

Rimarimba
Below The Horizon

Rare DIY sounds from Robert Cox’s Rimarimba project, excavated and reissued by Freedom To Spend. Below The Horizon is 1983 material, originally circulated through private tape-trading circles. Homemade minimalism, made with an amateur’s passion and all the more intriguing and enjoyable for it. Limited LP reissue.

Rings Around Saturn
Rings Around Saturn

Melbourne techno producer Rory McPike is back as Rings Around Saturn. His new, self-titled album flows with a range of abstract and dance-floor styles. McPike stylishly applies his considerable talents to 11 tracks here, delivering fizzing, pulsating new wave techno and imposing abstract electronics on a double-pack LP. 300 copies only. On Brokntoys records.

Anyone who slept on 2015’s essential Iron Cages EP can set things right by copping the producer’s debut LP Adepta. These eleven tracks of pure dancefloor power bristle with violence, rage and intent. Imagine early Arca with absolutely no time for pretence.

rkss
DJ Tools

The truly soon to be legendary rkss aka Robin Buckley makes a record of repurposed EDM, calling it DJ Tools but broadening the scope of club music beyond mere process and utility. By pointing at the idea of 'purposeful' club music, Buckley considers the politics and identity inherent to the genre, making a record that investigates the intersection of queerness and technology.

Rob
Hell Fire

Tambourine Party presents a reissue of Hellfire by singular Ghanaian discosmith Rob “Roy” Raindorf, an album sidelined in its time due to waning local interest in Afrobeat. As we all inch closer to humanity’s demise, the album’s apocalyptic themes seem as appropriate today as ever before. Fortunately, with Rob’s funk and reggae stylings the end of the world never seemed so groovy.

Robert Hood
Clocks / Low Life / Go

One of the foremost figures in minimal techno since the beginning of the 1990s, Robert Hood is still going strong. ‘Low Life’ accompanies a wonky little organ motif with a stomping tempo, ‘Go’ goes deep with a samba layout and minimal bleeps, while highlight ‘Clocks’ ingeniously switches up layers of stuttering snares over a windy, rubbery bed. It all comes off as very deftly composed, dynamic and lush.

Robert Hood
DJ-Kicks

The latest instalment in the ever-growing catalogue of stellar mixes in the 'DJ-Kicks' series arrives from truly a giant. It's pioneering Detroit techno legend Robert Hood of course. The Motor City's very own, and a founding member of Underground Resistance with Banks and Mills, Hood laid down a blueprint for minimal techno. His DJ-Kicks here presents a crucial, timeless snapshot of techno history: 22 tracks on a mixed CD including 4 of his own, new exclusives to this release. Also on double unmixed LP, on !K7.

Rocheman
Rocheman

Theatre is one of the more successful mediums when it come to capturing weirdness and the dreamlike. Rocheman is Jordan Mallory-Skinner, an artist who mostly works for the stage, but has now used his talents to craft a delightful dream pop album that will get on with fans of bands like Grizzly Bear.

Roger Doyle
Oizzo No

The Irish composer’s ultra-rare 1975 debut is a wonderland of head-spinning tape collage, densely dissonant strings, and woozily detuned pianos, where uilleann pipes meet the avant garde. There’s a strong Uncle Meat-era Mothers of Invention flavour in the copious tape-speed manipulation, tricksy melodies and echoes of Edgard Varèse. Though Doyle was signed to U2’s short-lived Mother Records, it’s more useful to note his appearance on the Nurse With Wound list, and their label United Dairies.

Roma di Luna
We Were Made To Forgive

Roma Di Luna return with their seventh release We Were Made To Forgive. Made up of songs old and new, this is folk rock at its most crystalline, all anchored by the outstandingly clear voice of singer Channy Leaneagh (also of Poliça). The band donated the proceeds of their reunion show, so you can trust this isn't a cash in. 

Rommek
Sedimentary - Set In Stone Trilogy

Rocks and stones are ever-powerful inspirations for creation, especially when it comes to pounding pummelling musics like techno. Rommek’s Set In Stone Trilogy continues apace with Sedimentary, a four-track set of industrial powerhouse cuts. ‘Arkose’ in particular has some nice Aphexy echo-acid going on in it, and ‘Flint’ settles into a sinister drone. 12” on Blueprint.

Rommek
Metamorphic (Set In Stone Trilogy Remixes)

Rommek’s Set In Stone series for Blueprint (James Ruskin, Oliver Ho) has so far wielded plenty of black-hearted, monolithic techno tracks. On Metamorphic, a set of remixes drawn from the Set In Stone records released so far, four producers turn the base materials into … black-hearted, monolithic techno tracks. Reinvent the wheel they may not, but my oh my are these some mighty club jams. Makaton’s take on ‘Obsidian’ is a brain-melting beauty reminiscent of Surgeon and Nicolas Bourgaieff.

Ron Trent vs Lono Brazil vs Dazzle Drums
Manchild (In The Promised Land)

Ron Trent and Lono Brazil. You probably know what this is going to sound like already, don’t you? And it does. Trent cooks up one of those classic Mahogani Music-type house tracks that seem to just get better with age, while Brazil chats a sort of pseudo-beat-poet diatribe over the top. The B-side sees Japanese duo Dazzle Drums come through with the sort of edit that this blurb writer would describe as ‘tribal house’ if he thought it was an acceptable term to use.

Rosali
Trouble Anyway

After stints in the bands Long Hots and Wandering Shade, Rosali is now sharing both her strength and vulnerability on her new album Trouble Anyway. Charlie Hall from War On Drugs, Purling Hiss mainman Mike Polizze and critically acclaimed harpist, Mary Lattimore feature in Rosali’s backing band, making an album that displays musical lushness and riffs in equal measure. LP and CD on Scissor Tail Editions.

Rotla
Waves

Beautiful tones from Italy’s Mario Pierro aka Rotla (Raiders of the Lost Arp), once again for Edizioni Mondo. Following the label’s fondness for library and documentary music, Rotla’s new twelve Waves blends balearic and kosmische references into eighties disco on the title track and slower territory on ‘Babash’. Includes two remixes of ‘Waves’ from label boss L.U.C.A. and Mark Barrott.

Rotten Hill Gang
Teach Peace

Rotten Hill Gang refer to themselves as a rap ‘n’ roll group. They pick up where the likes of Run DMC, Beastie Boys and LL Cool J left off. On Teach Peace, they mix rap and live instruments with left-wing social commentary. Features a guest appearance by Hollie Cook. LP & CD on West Born Records.

RS Produções
Bagdad Style

Portugal's seemingly infinite well of talent keeps emerging via the always on point Príncipe label. RS Produções are a crew of youngsters currently bringing plenty of fire to the dance. 'Bagdad Style' was produced by posse core members DJ Narciso and Nuno Beats and brings eight cuts of stripped back, percussive grooves via Batida, electro/house and Kuduro mutations, that'll ignite a dancefloor and have plenty of booty's shakin'. Consistent heat from the label that brought us DJ Marfox, Niagara, DJ Lycox, Nídia Minaj, DJ Lilocox, P. Adrix etc.

Ruedi Hausermann
Galerie Randolph

Oren Ambarchi’s Black Truffle label have had a formidable release schedule of late, what with Alvin Lucier, Francis Plagne & Crys Cole, and Eiko Ishibashi & Darin Gray putting out some of 2018’s finest records. This reissue of Ruedi Hausermann 1995 record 'Galerie Randolph' looks to continue this streak over into 2019. The work of a composer with a background in absurdist-music-theatre, this album is as unconventional as you would expect, but this approach is the very thing that makes it thrilling, with its avant-jazz sax and highly unpredictable percussion.

Ruskin & Broom
Domwen

So, it's time for a new Ruskin & Broom EP! James Ruskin and Mark Broom -- stalwarts both of the UK Techno scene -- are together and continuing their collaborative techno project. 'Domwen' features 3 new slices of razor-edged techno -- heavy on the bass, deep of groove with surreal synths. Tasty 12" on Blueprint.

Rutger Zuydervelt
Astroneer - Volume 2

Machinefabriek man Rutger Zuydervelt self-releases his second volume of music from the soundtrack to the game Astroneer - Volume 2; following hot on the heels of Volume 1, logically enough. The music plays continuously during the game and reacts to gameplay, actions and events. Soft, spacey sounds for generating whole new worlds to. Or as you relax in your favourite old armchair. On CD in a lovely matt finish digipak.

RYD
RYD

RYD is the recording moniker of Ryan Downie, a producer and songwriter from North London. He takes inspiration from Bon Iver, Missy Elliott and Timbaland to create his songs that blend the crystalline sound of electronics with some heart-wrenching themes and ethereal production. Self-titled debut LP and CD on 37 Adventures.

S & M Trading Co.
Metal Surface Repair

Detroit's Fit Siegel and Helsinki's DJ Sotofett hook up as S & M Trading Co. Moody acid melts the glacial atmosphere across the three mixes of 'Metal Surface Repair'. Alongside the original cut is an Acidic Mix which amps up the 303 action and a more ethereal, floating Synthetic Mix. Available on 12" on Aaron "Fit" Siegel's superb Fit Sound label outta Detroit.

Sacred Tapestry
Shader Complete

Dizzyingly productive alias-hopper Ramona Xavier (Vektroid, Macintosh Plus, dstnt et al), best known as a vapourwave heavyweight, reworked her 2012 album Sacred Tapestry in 2016 and now here it is again, getting its first wax treatment from Aguirre. Ranges from cloudy ambience not unlike even Alva Noto’s Xerrox stuff to more typical, screwed old jingletastic vapes.

Saloli
The Deep End

The Year Zero for Mary Sutton’s debut LP as Saloli was a performance at a clothing-optional soaking-pool sauna. In attempting to make music for people relaxing in hot bubbly water, Sutton came up with these sounds of warm, tranquil beauty. The generative point of The Deep End encourages comparisons with Yamaneko’s Spa Commissions, but the sounds here lean more towards the New Age reissues of Seance Centre. Out via Kranky (Tim Hecker, Dedekind Cut).

Samantha Glass
Nine Memories Between Impression & Imprint

Samantha Glass returns to Texan label HoloDeck (Dylan Cameron, Derek Rogers) with a new LP. Nine Memories Between Impression & Imprint is another collection of retro-futurist bedroom electronica from Glass. The overall impression of the record is that of a moth-eaten copy of an Italians Do It Better album. There are similarities with fellow HoloDeck artist Marie Davidson.

Same Waves
Algorithm of Desire

‘Algorithm of Desire’ by Same Waves is an exercise in oddball electronic pop, both restrained and open-ended. Same Waves are a collaboration between Lindsay Anderson (L’ALTRA) and John Hughes, together making a sound of hushed eccentricity, welcome to scrapes of violin, plonking synths, and at times almost whispered vocals. The LP - which features contributions from the likes of Bill MacKay and Macie Stewart - is released by the Flau label.

Sami Baha
Free For All

As he's partly responsible for one of the greatest tracks of all time (Total Freedom's Bitch Better Have My Money edit), I've always had a soft spot for Sami Baha. His new album is a compelling document of the state of contemporary "club" music, and features guest spots from UK Drill superstar Dimzy, as well as Yung Lean and Egyptian MCs Dawsha and Abanob.

Sauna Youth
Deaths

Sauna Youth’s third album, Deaths, mixes a whole lotta genres into their punk sound. The London-based group forced a deadline on themselves by booking the studio time before anything was written. This meant the creative process was turned on its head and time limits meant whichever band members could make it to sessions each week played whichever instrument needed. The lyrics touch on politics, action and inaction, the drudgery of work, the fun of leisure and the nuisance, or otherwise, of distraction. LP and CD on Upset The Rhythm.

Scandinavian Star
SOLAS

Lust For Youth/Oh No Ono’s Malthe Fischer returns as Scandinavian Star with the follow-up to the project's self-titled 2015 cassette. SOLAS is a record of ghostly electronics and techno malfunction. It takes the early Posh Isolation power electronics sound and chops ‘n’ screws it to mournfully beautiful effect. One could quite easily imagine this being released by Rabit’s Halcyon Veil imprint.

SCB
Caibu

This one’s been coming. After two 2017 EPs (and next month’s Engineered Morality), Paul Rose aka Scuba aka SCB gives us the first LP from his vowel-phobic project. Anyone coming here and expecting a nice fix of jacking house will be left disappointed - SCB’s stuff is less welcoming, full of foreboding synths and hard, no-bs techno drums. Throw in a concept where Rose uses the LP “to explore the fictional narrative in which a hypothetical timeline is corrupted by a climate-related disaster”, and it all adds up to Caibu being a rather bracing experience.

Scientist & Prince Jammy
Scientist & Prince Jammy Strike Back

Classic 1982 LP from Prince Jammy and Scientist here which originally came out on Trojan Records. If those names aren’t marks of quality then we don’t know what are. The cosmic aesthetic of Scientist and Jammy Strike Back! ushers the artists into interesting sonic wormholes. Even by their standards, the clattering percussion and spacey mixing are pretty out there on these ten tracks.

Scott Xylo
Find Us When U Get There

Black Acre scoop up Leicester twentysomething spark Scott Xylo for an afrofuturist LP of neo-soul, hip-wonk beats, smokey jazz downtempo and collaborations with the likes of Jon Glitches, Catherine Sera, Afronaut Zu and Marcus Joseph. Plus fairly splendid cover art by Philly comic illustrator Pat Aulisio.

Sea Bee
I Wanda Why?

See Bee’s 1994 EP I Wanda Why? Has been concentrated from 6 tracks to 4, for its reissue on Afrosynth, the label owned by DJ Okapi. The four tracks here are all essential and reliable house bangers that will get the dancefloor full every time. Composed, produced and arranged by influential South African musician, Spokes H.

Seán Carpio & Eomac
ETXC002

The second instalment of Eotrax’s collaborative series sees label boss Eomac of Lakker hook up with Migro/Klein artist Seán Carpio. On ETXC002 the pair bounce various kinds of feedback off one another to produce a record of drone, noise and concrète. These needling, abrasive tracks are not for the faint-hearted - enter at your peril.

Sean Christopher
Yonder

He can do loads of stuff, this Sean Christopher. He can drum. He can produce. He can pen very earnest ditties for voice and guitar that are like a less abhorrent version of Frank Turner. He does all of this and more on his debut LP Yonder. Some smartarse will use one of these tracks to try and sell you some yoghurt one day, so get your listening in before that happens.

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.

Secretsundaze
Cyber EP

After many years of DJing, putting on parties and running the Secretsundaze label the duo of James Priestley & Giles Smith are now starting to show off their production skills. Following on from the Still Hope EP that came out on Phonica back in June the pair release Cyber. This EP sees the title track done three ways - the deep ‘House Pass’, the Danielle Baldelli-esque ‘Cosmic Slide’ and the Floating Points-aping ‘Ambient Sax Mix’. Good stuff.

Selling
On Reflection

What happens when two Big Names in electronic music - to wit, Gold Panda and half of Simian Mobile Disco - join creative forces and make an album? Selling, that’s what. And likely the selling of the Selling record. Seems that GP provides the fuzzy warmth while Jas Shaw lends his shiny techno craft and between them good thing happen.

Serena Butler
We Want Neither Clean Hands Nor Beautiful Souls

Amen to that! We Want Neither Clean Hands Nor Clean Souls sees Serena Butler surface on Lucy’s Stroboscopic Artefacts. The surroundings suit Butler nicely, and the heads-down techno of ‘Globular Hymen’ and ‘Science Is Not An Expression But A Suspension Of Gender’ (nicely put) has shades of label-mates Chevel and Perc. Elsewhere ‘And With Fire Came Disparity’ ends the EP by stripping out the drums to forefront a spoken passage that illuminates the record’s queer feminist agenda. Excellent stuff.

Sha La Das
Love In The Wind

Something of a Daptone Records love-in here. The Sha La Das are three Staten Island brothers (surname Schalda, hence the moniker of the group) who grew up singing backing harmonies for their dad Bill, himself a one-time member of 1960s doo-wop group The Montereys. When Menahan Street Band founder Thomas Brenneck got wind of their talent, he teamed up with Bill to write the eleven instant Daptone classics that make up Love In The Wind. Bill and his sons are backed by the MSB here, the group that anchored the late Charles Bradley.

Shadows
Particles Of Life

Ok so this is not the sometime Cliff Richard fronted guitar twangers but instead a duo of of Andrew Bowen & Dimitri Ploumpidis who also play hard techno as AnD. Here they explore freeform electronic explorations all smudgy and smeared with detritus. It's bloody ugly but that's what you are here for right?

Shahid Wheeler
Just One Dance Before You Go

Melodies International are a nifty little label. Their line is that they track down rare-ass, expensive-ass old club killers and reissue them at a fraction of the cost you’d pay for an original copy. The latest Melodies coup is Shahid Wheeler’s 1978 number ‘Just One Dance Before You Go’. A righteous disco joint of the Off The Wall school, this is the sort of dancefloor gold that never goes out of fashion. Here it is presented remastered and backed with the instrumental.

Shake
5% Solution

Prayers have been answered! This sought after 4-track EP is a secret weapon, high on many a Detroit techno fiend's wants list. Originally released on Juan Atkins hallowed Metroplex imprint back in 1993 -- the same year Anthony "Shake" Shakir released his debut under the Shake handle on Kevin Saunderson's KMS sister label Trance Fusion. Shake has a unique, raw and quirky approach to techno which has always given his tracks a distinctive character and super funky sound. He's a real demon on his drum machines - you'll hear why he can count the likes of Autechre among his legion of fans. Shake is arguably Detroit techno's best kept secret - this record still sounds fresh twenty fives years after it was created.

Shigeto
Weighted

As the snow flies on a cold and grey Chicago mornin', a poor little baby child is born - in Shigeto. That’s pretty much where the similarities with Elvis end for the Detroit artist, mind. On Weighted, Shigeto comes through with a selection of classic Midwest club tackle. ‘Fight Club’ and ‘Ooh Ooh’ are terse 808 techno, while the Ian Fink-featuring ‘The Line Up’ is closer to Moodymann’s Mahogani Music. Motor city royalty Andres rounds the EP out with a remix.
