With the beautifully introspective 'Sea Island' Loscil taps back into that vein of Kranky ambient loveliness he's owned for more than a decade since his 'Triple Point' (2001) classic. Shaping a misty bridge between dub techno and ambient music proper, his music has long stood out from the crowd for his ability to effortlessly sidestep cliche in a genre swamped by folk happy to infinitely regurgitate the same patterns and pads. And 'Sea Island' shows no sign of that considered approach abating. It makes a marked step towards letting that dub techno bridge evaporate into the background as he ado… Read more

Cat. Number: MISTY003

Third and quite possibly strongest release yet from Beneath's Mistry label canters back to the 'floor with two deft, blocky riddims by Enklav. boss Chevel. Working a stripped framework of percolating bleeps and woody, splintered percussion greased with oily Reese and 808 bass, the Italian producer unfurls two lean and mean productions every bit as shark-eyed and skunked-out as his recent remixes for Webstarr's 'Agreus' (Misty002) and Downliners Sekt. A-side, the icy countenance of 'Tank' is primed at a 115bpm swagger for early doors in dark, claustrophobic bass pockets and cold warehouses a… Read more

Listening to this latest album from Liz Harris’ Grouper project it’s easy to forget how much of a hard sell her music was back when 'Way Their Crept’ landed with us back in 2005. Her eerie, layered mix of bare vocals, guitar and tape delay didn't quite fit in with what anyone else was really doing on the scene back then - and it completely knocked us out even if no one was buying it. By the time her breakthrough ‘Dragging a Dead Deer…’ arrived on Type three years later she was more or less playing to a baying mob hungry for any little morsel she cared to throw their way, her (by now) more fleshed out … Read more

**Special double set of COH’s TO BEAT album (released previously as CD) featuring exclusive remixes by Matmos, JG Thirwell, John Parish, Ryuchi Sakamoto and Drew McDowall. Vinyl only. No digital** 'To Beat' is surely the most accessible album in CoH's long and illustrious catalogue of extreme electronic music. It picks up right where 'RETRO-2038' left off on 'Method As Fun' by keenly focussing on the aesthetics of pure sinewaves and rhythm. Like some origami high master, the Swedish-based Russian producer folds and layers sheer tones into pulsing, spitting waves of rhythmic and melodic en… Read more

Bloom sets new precedents for instrumental grime with a quartet of nexx dimension productions for Bristol's Crazylegs. Last spotted on the label remixing Toyc's 'Keychain', in the 'Hydraulics' EP he cuts the fat with ruthless incision, leaving a shocking display of scything, mechanised rhythms tessellating in negative 3D space. Nary a fxxk is given towards rhythmic convention as he re-tools the original templates of Wiley, Waifer, and Splurt to the nth degree, replacing practically all traces of sinew or unnecessary material with explosive concrète dynamics. Quite importantly, it's also some of… Read more

**180g mastered and cut by Matt Colton.

It's arguably a pinnacle of the label's sustained attack since emerging in 2013, due in large part to The Haxan Cloak's shocking render of 'HTH020'. In the course of nearly eleven minutes, the original is hard-panned for gold, sweeping from stereo-strafing concrète dynamics into a staggering display of head-compressing delays and chest-bursting post-rock/metal dynamic… Read more

With the beautifully introspective 'Sea Island' Loscil taps back into that vein of Kranky ambient loveliness he's owned for more than a decade since his 'Triple Point' (2001) classic. Shaping a misty bridge between dub techno and ambient music proper, his music has long stood out from the crowd for his ability to effortlessly sidestep cliche in a genre swamped by folk happy to infinitely regurgitate the same patterns and pads. And 'Sea Island' shows no sign of that considered approach abating. It makes a marked step towards letting that dub techno bridge evaporate into the background as he adopts … Read more

**White Vinyl** Killer, Pitch perfect coldwave zinger from Sweden's Veil Of Light, fitting right in the shadows between authentic '80s gloom and a modern hankering for wavey romance. The material here could have come straight out of a box of tapes stashed away in 1982 and recently discovered by the Blackest Ever Black or Downwards crew, but the quality of production and songwriting is right up there employing classic industrial, minimal wave and post-punk tropes to finest effect. Highly Recommended!
