Risveglio

HOSPITAL PRODUCTIONS

Format_dot_vinyl2LP // £16.99

ELECTRONIC

Cat. Number: HOS-426

Nine Inch Nails' synthesist, Alessandro Cortini, animates an enveloping shadowplay of Roland 202 and TB303 spectres in his second album for Hospital Productions following the stunning 'Forse' trilogy for Important Records. 'Risveglio' is the 'Awakening' to 'Sonno''s 'Sleep'. Like its predecessor, it was also written and recorded while on tour but, unlike 'Sonno', it syncs his favoured 202 with the unique integers of a TB303, eliding the two via a delay unit to expand his sound without ever losing sight of the crushing harmonic noise romance at its core.

Left to his own devices, however, Souleyman and band provide some of the album's most striking moments in the solemn sway of 'Mawal menzal' and the intricately woven strokes of 'Darb El Hawa', whilst Legowelt yokes 'Bahdeni Nami' to Euro 'floors with a killer New Beat acid styled remix.

Tarquin debuts on Mr. Mitch's Gobstopper with a wickedly schizoid grime sound.

'Kid U' works at a sweetboy halfstep roll with bubbling vocal idents dancing around shearing metallic synths and pizzicato strings whipped up like some Murlo spesh. On the other hand, 'Lost my Marbles' is utter insanity, augmenting a nasty bassline-style chassis with cranky drops and toad croak tone to bomb the dance. Tip!

TECHNO / HOUSE

Cat. Number: EGLO42

Hot on the heels of their Sound Signature session, Dego & Kaidi return to Eglo with a quartet of super-soulful rug-cutters. Vibes are strong on this wan, whether greazing the parched drums and mirage-like synth shimmers of 'Black Is Key' with deep jazz vocal harmonies and fruity keys, or loosening up the pointillist shuffle of 'Man Made' with wobbly, wavey chords on the A-side, or travelling from the Afro-centric idiosyncrasies of 'Orbiting Uhuru' to inimitably clipped and charming summer-in-West London styles with 'The Vault Descends'.

**Limited Neon yellow vinyl edition** Björk comes to terms with the breakdown of a longterm relationship with some help from Arca, The Haxan Cloak, Antony and Spaces. It's arguably her most coherent and focused album since 'Vespertine' (2001), her vocals incredibly raw and emotional - understandably in the light of tragic, personal events - yet controlled with near operatic poise and matched by the waking-dream-like qualities of the production's skewed meter and tendencies toward keening, lushly expressive discord. It must be said that Arca really comes into his own here… Read more

*Long-Awaited debut album from Janus Collective member M.E.S.H. - recorded in Berlin in winter 2015, mastered by Rashad Becker at D&M* Janus crew's M.E.S.H. unpackages a vast internal world across the ornate topographies of his incredible debut album. Combining scything club dynamics and Hollywood sound design with a sample bank of archaic renaissance instruments, 'Piteous Gate' describes a hyperreal place-out-of-time framed by matrices of tessellating grids and vapour-trace contours rent in near-VR detail. Collapsing the stadium-sized structures of "festival trance" with oblique elements of bar… Read more

I know, I know – you’re expecting some lush piano and delicately orchestrated melancholy strings aren’t you? Well you’re probably looking in the wrong place, Arnalds and Frahm have ditched the ivories here in favour of electronics, and as the opening piece suggests it has more in common with Tangerine Dream than Erik Satie.

Mr. Beatnick flexes a proper disco-tech sound with 'Formed In The Stance' for Semtek's DBA label. 'Stutter' opens with some weighty momentum balanced between slyding synth flares and bristling electro NRG bass, whilst the coruscating scales and slippery disco moves of 'Jellyfish' recall classic Patrick Cowley. The title track dims the lights to a noirish, jazzy West London bustle, and 'Obsidian Morning' synchs a lissom swing between wood-crack claps, dubble-dip bass and flighty arpeggios. Great stuff.

Superb, carbonated disco-house and good times boogie from the Pender Street Stepper and Mood Hut collective member. Doing it for Future Times, Jack J bubbles up the dub-scattered drums and walking disco bass of 'Thirstin' with soul-quenching vocals on the A-side, whilst 'Atmosphere' opens out across the flip with diaphanous jazz chords and a deep forest of shimmering chime trees giving way to a lissom boogie shuffle shivered with nifty edits from the top pocket.

Vsnares pursues the breakcore dragon into new spaces following the monstrous 'My Love Is A Bulldozer' (2014). Serving more than your recommended yearly allowance of mentallism, 'Your Face' flings us from black midi symphonies in 'Your Face When I Finally' to a gorgeous, beat-less and hyaline reflection in 'Your Face When I Finally (Glass Version)', spinning us thru the LP5-style knots of 'Former Eagle' to hyper hardcore party styles in 'Red Orange 2', and the flipping freakish breakbeat techno of 'Become Magic Dolphins', with a brilliant twist of forward electro pulses and harmonic convolutions recalling Gábor Lázár in 'Misericordial'.

A tense, gut-wrenching listen wrought with carefully considered space, the range of techniques and the depth of atmosphere is staggering.

Kieran Hebden a.k.a. Four Tet takes a proggy saunter from hybrids of Indian classical music and House to Kosmische and rustling breaks on his 8th solo studio album. 'Morning/Evening was first conceived in summer 2014 and completed early 2015 to follow the frayed and fractured pirate/rave buzz of 'Beautiful Rewind' with a more open, rolling and entrancing framework. It's a sound that dovetails his love of long-format jazz records with the play-thru hypnosis of DJing, layering far flung yet neatly compatible elements around repetitive and subtly morphing templates for up to and over 20 minute… Read more

JESSY LANZA, DJ SPINN & TASO - You Never Show Your Love, Hyperdub
Jessy Lanza finds mutual muses in Chicago lynchpins, DJ Spinn and Taso, for the romantic R&B and footwork of 'You Never Show Your Love'. A perfect match of styles, it finds Spinn & Taso working outside their usual tempo bracket with great results, creaming yacht-ready guitar licks on airborne trap triplets, all gilded with Lanza's longing lyrics placing the original up close to FKA Twigs' 'Water Me' whilst the Teklife remix comes off like 4Hero gone footwork with its ornate chords, jazzy arrangement and hi-tek funk pulsations.

Ipman triggers a devastating, hardcore UK sound with his Tectonic debut. Amidst bad company on the Bristol label, he sounds a junglist clarion call for 'Regicide' with ruffneck breaks and stare-down bass amping a sentiment we agree with, whereas 'Ghostrunner' tests out something new entirely with a ferocious cold-fusion of noise techno, EBM and pitching trap trills that frankly sounds like f**k-all out there.
