Oliver Coates & Laurie Tompkins
Ample Profanity

Oliver Coates is a prodigious talent. He’s been too good for too long now for anyone to put in a salient argument to the contrary. Here we see him returning to Slip, the label that put out his excellent collaborative LP with Mica Levi, for a short record of avant-anarchism alongside Laurie Tompkins. Ample Profanity is a disorientating listen - at one point it will resemble the kindergarten punk of early Micachu & The Shapes, then a few seconds later it’ll be on an Einstuerzende Neubauten flex.

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.

Otik
Top Ten EP

After a run of releases on labels including Dext Recordings and Brotherhood Sound System, young talent Otik moves to the next level and drops via Keysound (Wen, Okzharp & Samrai). The tunes that make up Top Ten are a fresh mix of sounds. While grounded in the soundsystem techno style of labels like Timedance and 3024, Otik isn’t afraid to incorporate elements of UK Funky and dub-techno into his work. It makes for a pleasing mix.

The Beta Band
The Best of The Beta Band: Music

Who doesn’t like The Beta Band? No-one, that’s who. However, despite being universally loved, some of us - Norman Records™ description writers included - aren’t that familiar with the group’s output beyond ubiquitous early-2000s hit ‘Squares’. This also makes it a bit difficult for some of us to say what their music sounds like. Let's go with ... Super Furry Animals ... and ... Beck ... maybe The Avalanches too? Is that right? Either way, The Best Of The Beta Band will help plug the gap for those who’ve always wanted to know more about the Scottish group but have been afraid to ask. Comes backed with a live album.

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.

Volcov
From The Archive Vol. 2

Volcov’s first …From The Archive compilation was a tasteful collection of jazz-adjacent rarities that dated from as far back as the 1970’s. Two years on and the market for golden age soul-jazz/disco/funk reissues has become crowded, so Volcov has selected ten twenty-first century nuggets for the second installment of the series. The set, which includes tunes by Ron Trent and the Roy Ayers-affiliated Harry Whitaker, flows nicely between nu-jazz, neo-soul and hip-hop. All in all From The Archive Volume 2 is a fine bit of curation.

Differ-Ent
It's Good to Be Differ-Ent

‘It’s Good to Be Differ-Ent’ is the release from DJ Bone under his pseudo name ‘Differ-Ent’. This record has been described as a thunderous and paranoid collection of music that has been mastered to align with more new-wave experimental techno, rather than old school electro. This is available on triple Vinyl LP.

Black Merlin
Oba Enka

George Thompson is the man behind the mysterious Black Merlin project if you didn't know; mystique somewhat vaporised. Here he is for his first EP on Mannequin records, and it's a three-track thumper. Bringing the Noir to techno and the voodoo to the dance-floor once again, some manic bass-lines with unrepentant drones and pummelling kick-drums enter the fray, to slay. Great.

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.

dragSTER
Anti-Everything

Miss the ‘90s? Think that cyberpunk is due another day in the sun? Wistfully daydreaming about bygone Whitby Goth festivals? Then fear not - the fourth LP from dragSTER is here to satisfy your cravings. Anti-Everything is very turn-of-the-century Marilyn Manson, which is great news because his recent stuff was starting to wear us out. We are, verily, all stars now. Out via Louder Than War (Evil Blizzard, Fawn Spots).

Madisen Ward and the Mama Bear
The Radio Winners

A mother-and-son duo here, which isn’t something you see every day. Mama Bear - the mum of the duo, if that wasn’t obvious enough - strums a nice guitar while her handsome son Madisen Ward intones in a manner similar to Ray LaMontagne and Iron & Wine. New EP The Radio Winners is embellished with strings and drums and various other Baroque niceties. There’s a lot of whistling on it, but you can skip those bits. The rest is pretty good.

Knightstown
Knightstown

Knightstown is Michael Aston, a man who has most notably composed music for the 2014 Glasgow Commonwealth Games. Being that those take place in World Cup years I can't be the only person who missed it but we now have a fresh chance to acquaint ourselves with Aston. On Knightstown, he centres his falsetto singing over woozy electronics in a similar vein to the latest Bon Iver album. On FatCat.

Natureboy Flako
Theme For A Dream

Natureboy Flako has a very old-fashioned looking piece of sleeve art for his new LP, but the sounds within are bang up to date, with an array of analogue synthesiser equipment as well as guitars and vocals in use. Theme For A Dream wants to go deep inside the listener’s mindspace, as it came from deep within Flako’s. Album released by Five Easy Pieces.

Paul Frick
Second Yard Botanicals

Known to many as one third of Brandt Brauer Frick, Paul Frick finally gets his debut LP release via Apollo records. Yes, although Frick has released a handful of EPs over recent years and made music for over twenty years, Second Yard Botanicals is the Berliner's first full-length under his own steam. Well, he finally buckled down and got on with it, and aren't we glad; Frick used an assortment of instruments as well as his own field recordings and dissected breakbeats to craft a sonic collage infused with eclecticism and classical influences, interwoven with fragile melodies drawing on the poetry he takes in every day. Wowzers.

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.

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’.

DJ Residue
211 Circles Of Rushing Water

DJ Residue is the latest alias of the shape-shifting Gunnar Wendel (Kassem Mosse, The Siege Of Troy). 211 Circles of Rushing Water continues in the vein of recent releases on The Trilogy Tapes from Parris and Metasplice. This is erstwhile, obtuse electronica where the instruments and beats often appear near to coalescing into substantial grooves but seem reluctant to go the whole hog. Inga Copeland’s Lolina project springs to mind.

D'Arcangelo
II

Suction Records follow up their reissue of D’Arcangelo’s 1996 Rephlex Records EP with this new archival release. Four of the six pieces on II were tracked around the same time as the Roman duo’s self-titled debut, though they have never seen the light of day until now. They’re the typically mind-melting mix of braindance, acid, electro, techno and IDM that the Italian veterans have spent the subsequent years stamping their authority on. The release is fleshed out by ‘AOM*2’ and ‘Diagram IX’, both long out of print until now.

Soap/ALL 4 U

Made up from members (or ex members) of Boredoms, Tokyo Bravo, NXS/AOA, OOIOO, and Funni & Tutti. Making a total of 5 guitarists… bringing odd 80s new wave punk via shimmering korean pop. Trust me, it is odd. Great. But odd. Like musak played by Deerhoof on the beach. Features a remix from DJ Nozaki. Highly limited vinyl on LL Records.

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.

Diptera
001 [Antenna]

Diptera are a duo who approach club deconstructionism in a rather literal way. First off Activist DJ whips up a quick bit of darkside garage. The resulting tune is then sent over to Wesley who mangles, bends and screws the original into strange new shapes. On 001 [Antenna], the end result is a four-track set that sounds like a Clark mix being funneled through a metal pipe. Szare also springs to mind. Out via Mana.

Colund1

This compilation consists of electronic music made using the Colundi sequence, a 128-tone scale that taps into some strange philosophical and biological fundaments. This non-Western scale was developed by tireless electronic experimenter Aleksi Perälä and former Rephlex head honcho Grant Wilson-Claridge. Things tend to lean towards the more off-kilter side of techno, with a lot of classic drum sounds and some gorgeous harmonies. Capsule and Tunnel One’s contributions are particularly exciting, the former an eerie choir-led stroll and the latter pulling off some classic sci-fIDM.

High energy sounds, incorporating and building upon themes from the original series.

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.

Middle of the Road Less Travelled

80s electro tinkerer Michal Turtle has seen a renewed interest in his music in recent years, with Music From Memory reissuing a number of records from his back catalogue. Now Light Of Other Days sees him team up with guitarist Hove for this EP of gentle deep house and Balearic beat. There’s a nice dinky quality to the synths on Middle of the Road Less Travelled that recalls Dazion and Dip In The Pool.

Split Concept

Traxx’s Nation label is always a sure thing when it comes to odd variations on the blueprint of rugged hardware house music, and the pairing of D’Marc Cantu and Black Meteoric Star on this split release is a prime example. Cantu is actually in a relatively restrained mode here, burrowing into meditative arpeggios and scuffed beatdowns on “RDDS”, while Black Meteoric Star creates a jarring but alluring minimal wave abstraction on the live version of “Me And My Rhythm Box”.

Sean McCann’s Recital (Ian William Craig, Daniel Schmidt) present this intriguing record from Open Corner. There is a neat division of labour on Empty Pool To No One - Asha Sheshadri delivers the spoken word, while beneath her passages Christian Mirande creates claustrophobic soundscapes full of pops, crackles, screeches and more. What we end up with are seven tracks which recall parts of Oliver Coates’ output as well as the recent Tarquin Manek/Martina Quake release on Blackest Ever Black.

Vanligt Folk
Palle Bondo

Baffling and haunting material from hardly-classifiable electro-creeps Vanligt Folk. Palle Bondo was written as a critique of the social stigmas of disability. In particular, it targets the notion of strangeness only being acceptable to society when it is clearly a chosen style of performance - with a “normal” agent beneath it. Fragments of familiar electro, dub and even industrial references make up these spacious productions. Nice early Autechre sample on the closing track!

Transformation / Beau Wanzer
Kozmik / Orbit

This split 12” on Nation offshoot Kode plays two of techno’s more idiosyncratic voices off against each other. Transformation’s offering is a hypnotic slow-mo grind, full of faraway screeches and eerie percussion. Kind of like Kraftwerk’s ‘Autobahn’ if Kraftwerk had actually been Fuck Buttons and the record was cut at 33 when it was meant to be cut at 45. On the flip, L.I.E.S./Jealous God bloke Beau Wanzer gives us a track called ‘Oklahoma 3’, which sounds nothing like any of the music from Oklahoma. It actually sounds like a darkwave rendering of Hype Williams.

Scent
KIM EP

Scent are a three-piece from London who play what I can only describe as semi-ethereal indie-pop. Kim EP is their debut single. The band are keen to throw people like me, who try to tell the general public about them, off their scent (no pun intended) with weird and incomprehensible press releases. Anyway, they’re new to Wichita Recordings and they have a pretty good track record of signing successful bands, so why not give 'em a go? One sided 12" single, limited to 300 copies.

Ross 154
Fragments

From the mists of 1993 and Eevo-Lute, it's Ross 154 (Jochem Peteri / Newworldaquarium) with Fragments. 4 slices of deep, opaque, mysterious techno and soft ambient interludes. Recorded at Stefan Robbers' parents' house in Eindhoven, the guys channeled their formative influences: hip hop, Brit Soul and Duran Duran melancholy; while absorbing UK scene techno -- Kirk Degiorgio, B12 -- plus second-wave Detroit (Carl Craig, Kenny Larkin). A classic, then.

Le Officine Di Efesto (Donato Dozzy & Retina.it)
The Elements

Though their catalogue currently numbers under fifteen releases, Italy’s Spazio Disponibile are building a reputation as a voice to watch in European techno. They’ve scored another direct hit with The Elements, a five-track release from Le Officine Di Efesto (the collaborative project between Retina.it and label boss Donato Dozzy). The pair cover a lot of ground here, moving between slow and psychy DJ tools (‘Sulphur 16’), leftfield groove tracks (‘Plasma Hymn’) and far-out synth experimentation (‘Ode To Carbon’) with great control.

Anthony Linell
Alienation From Self

Northern Electronics (The Empire Line, Varg) with another cheery-as-a-tax-return EP. In fairness, they do tend to be pretty good, and the latest one from label mainstay Anthony Linell is no exception. Alienation From Self contains three pieces of needling, claustrophobic techno that will really sort wheat from chaff in the club.

Buttechno
ZCAPRI

Buttechno is such a cool name, although I did originally read the press release as 'a faint rumble is heard from behind the horizon Buttechno cheeks'. It's a fart joke if you haven't already gathered, *one person slowly claps*. ZCAPRI is released on a four-track 12" vinyl, on Zodiac 44. This is the seventh of twelve releases from Buttechno.

Clay Wilson
Osho EP

Clay Wilson’s Osho lands on The Bunker New York with great gusto, delivering total power-groove to the dancefloor. And the 12” doesn’t let up either, following Osho with three more Osho’s, courtesy of Derek Plaslaiko, who goes Oogly Boogly, Jason Loveland, who gives a Twisted Interpretation, and rrao, who edits. Strong stuff. 12” vinyl.

Deep after-hours ambience from Night Foundation, released underneath the guise of a monochrome piece of sleeve-art so grainy we might have dreamed it. Memory Bells contains three lengthy pieces, using synth hardware, tape loops, and even some trumpet if you listen carefully. 12” on Lobster Theremin.

Paul Messis
Songs of Our Times

Paul Messis regards himself as a 'garage punk unknown' but has been throwing out pysch-rock nuggets for the best part of a decade as a solo artist, with his band The Suburban Homes, as bass player with The Higher State and through his collaboration with The Sufis - The Market Squares. His new solo LP, Songs Of Our Times mixes the jangle of ‘60s garage with folk rock and folk punk delivering a record that displays what he is all about.

Paul Draper
Live at Scala

Once of Britpop middleweights Mansun, Paul Draper made a return to the fray in the mid-2010s with two EPs and a UK top-twenty album Spooky Action. This live record, recorded at London’s Scala (surprise surprise), sees Draper tear through his Jeff Buckley-ish solo stuff as well as wheeling out some of the old guns. Features nice versions of ‘Wide Open Space’ and ‘I Can Only Disappoint U’.

TINT
Ricochet Screen

An intriguing record of sound collages from New York artist TINT here. Ricochet Screen builds its compositions up from found sounds and field recordings, often of general chit chat. Over this TINT puts anything from distorted bass guitar (‘Purr XYZ’) to beautiful, Debussy-esque piano improvisations (‘Earth D423’). It’s not unlike the best bit of Yves Tumor’s repertoire. This LP is out via Root Strata (Richard Youngs, Grouper).

Theo Parrish
Gentrified Love Part 4

Theo Parrish’s Sound Signature may be turning twenty this year, but that doesn’t mean that the Detroit legend is resting on his laurels. Rather, the fourth instalment of his Gentrified Love series sees Parrish looking to improve on past glories. A-side ‘Leave The Funk To Us’, for instance, appeared in truncated form on Gentrified Love 2. This full version, featuring Amp Fiddler, John Douglas and Ideeyah, is a classic TP funky stepper. The B-side is an update of a track by Paul Randolph & Kathy Kosins which appeared on 2017’s Brownswood Bubblers compilation.

Vicktor Taiwò
Joy Comes In Spirit

Vicktor Taiwò attempts to combine twin loves of pop music and experimental on a record of inner belief and self-actualisation. His debut, Joy Comes in Spirit, gambles on its bedrock of singer-songwriter soul with amorphous deviations. Tunes stretch and expand, taking on retro game music, rap and 808s-era Kanye in its fetch quest for introspection.

LOR
Mystery To The Viewer EP

Warm drop this four-track EP from Northern Ireland’s Lunar Orbit Rendezvous aka LOR. Like fellow Belfast native Space Dimension Controller, LOR’s brand of techno has a nice cosmic tinge to it. However, on Mystery To The Viewer, the aesthetic is more calculated than the full-blown Detroit worship of SDC. Only on booming closer ‘White Light’ does LOR really let rip. Earlier in the EP the title track and ‘In This Detail’ combine minimal grooves with expressive synth pads, while ‘Oriole’ has a bit of an acid tang.

Model 500
No UFO's Remixes

Juan Atkins’ calling card to extraterrestrial life sounds as vital now as it did back in ’85, but the key building block in what is now called techno has never received a modern re-rub. That all changes as second generation Detroit hero Moodymann turns in something of a cover version of the legendary electro jam while Swiss mnml ringmaster Luciano taps up the clicky, percussive vibe that he was pushing in Ibiza ten years ago by way of a remix.

Levon Vincent

Lord of wax Levon Vincent offers two buzzing cuts of who knows what. I would predict something deep and minimal, but these ones are being described as "razor-sharp", which could well mean we're in for something a little more confrontational, to suit him seemingly weaponising his vinyl with a swing of the arm on that front cover. Careful, Levon!

Promising release from up-and-coming Icelandic artist Björk. One of the standouts of Utopia, ‘Arisen My Senses’ - a co-production with Arca - opens that LP with what can only be described as cautious bombast. Emerging from the love lockdown that was Vulnicura, ‘Arisen My Senses’ is the sound of dawn after a dark night of the soul. This EP comes fleshed out with weapons-grade remixes from Lanark Artefax, Jlin and Kelly Lee Owens.

Ingrid Goes West (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack)

Ah yes, Ingrid Goes West. It's a [scrolls down Wikipedia page to critical reception] critically acclaimed movie with favorable reviews. A film about [scrolls back up to start of Wikipedia page] someone moving to LA to hang out with someone they follow on Instagram, it sounds to me an incredibly relatable experience, and is soundtracked by some suitably idealistic dance hits, road trippin' to soul, new wave and more. Can, Islands and Bobby Oroza are three artists that exist on this soundtrack.

Titles like ‘In Metaphor, Solace’, ‘Elysian Fields’ and ‘I Still Dream About You, Sometimes But Not Always’ suggest a work which wears its open heart on its sleeve.

Furfriend
Endless September

This is Furfriend's debut album out on UK based electro/techno/experimental record label Perc Trax. Furfriend are industrial techno art-rock duo Dingo Tush and Das Uberdog. Refreshingly odd and full of dark humour, Furfriend are not like other techno artists. 'Endless September' offers a combination of political satire and dark carnal body horror/celebration that manages not to take itself too seriously whilst still being quite serious. In their own words, "Furfriend is everything you never dared to sex about".

Modern Love finally issue Zomby's Mercury Beats, his attempt at re-imagining Wiley's Eskibeat series of releases. Made a while ago while his body clock was all out of whack, the pieces are methodical and rhythmic takes on grime that if released at the time may have shifted the course of grime. We think that is what the press release is saying but you can never be sure.

Vinyl only and each one has a lovely hand-painted sleeve.

Dustin Wong + Takako Minekawa + Good Willsmith
Exit Future Heart

I for one am extremely excited about this. Dustin Wong is the guitar knotter and looper known, in addition to his past service in noise rock band Ponytail, for making majestic records out of simple, riffed ideas. The ecstasy of his music will here be paired with noise pranksters Good Willsmith, who made an incredible, euphorically harsh record for Umor in Things Our Bodies Used to Have, along with the Casio tones of Takako Minekawa. An instant purchase for all the leftfields amongst you.

Örvar Smárason
Light Is Liquid

Twenty years after co-founding múm back in 1997, Örvar Smárason at last takes a dip solo with the rather trippily-titled Light is Liquid. Órvar’s touch in múm is traceable in the brittle melancholy, twee cuteness and rattling early 2000s bedroom electronica beats of these songs - especially the two featuring Sillas. But the album also reaches further into graceful synthpop territory.

Michal Turtle
Return To Jeka

Dutch imprint Music From Memory gather eight tracks from the archives of Michal Turtle. 'Return To Jeka' is the label's third release in collaboration with the English artist. Previously, they raided his tapes for the 'Are You Psychic?' EP and 'Phantoms Of Dreamland' 2LP. Like those records, this rewinds back to the 80s and features eight previously unheard cuts of obscure Britsh synth music, produced between 1983 and 1985. We can hear his background in jazz and classical, and even the funk and dub influences that run through this electro-ambient-tropical doozy.

This new release from Repitch Recordings co-bossman Ascion is described as a “mini LP”, as opposed to an EP.

This is fast-blasting stuff, densely constructed acidic techno that grabs you and doesn’t let go. On Repitch.

Another mystery missive from The Fossil Aerosol Mining Project, this one apparently alluding to previous release The Day 1982 Contaminated 1971, possibly by containing different treatments of some of the same original materials. Although with this level of looped-tapes and obscuring treatments, I wouldn’t sweat it: just sink into the deep crackling ambient murk. Released by The Helen Scarsdale Agency.

A seminal '90s deep house record gets reissued here by its original home of Peacefrog (Moodymann, Little Dragon). By 1997 Chris Brann had already received acclaim for his work as one third of Wamdue Kids, but Deep Fall sees the producer finding his own way and his own sound. The nine tracks here are the deepest of the deep, with mellow synth pads and sultry vocals keeping watch over rigid, slightly tech-house-flavoured drum tracking.
