*Exclusive Upfront Edition, pressed on white vinyl* Ecstatic finally issue Abul Mogard's debut solo vinyl LP: the modular landscape paintings of 'Circular Forms'. Unfolding a 40 minute synthesiser suite in four parts, 'Circular Forms' is one of the most captivating examples of Mogard's deeply evocative music, drawing out the sort of direct emotional quality from his limited set-up of Farfisa organs and a self-built modular system which many other synthesists can only dream of. At this point his backstory bears repeating: Mogard worked in a Serbian factory for most … Read more
**180 gm vinyl printed inner sleeves & silk-screened transparent over-sleeves. Download cards included. Edition of 300 copies** Ssaliva completely dazzles with the crystalline geometries of 'Be Me', his debut album for Ekster - the same Belgian label behind that amazing T C F 10" and freaks from Hiele. To date, it's been a joy to navigate Ssaliva's output between numerous aliases and releases since his emergence in 2011, each one revealing a lucid yet elusive glimpse of his hyper-ambient chamber music dimensions. With 'Be Me' he's achieved a simulated depth of field and dynamic that really brings his … Read more
Dubstep's strongest torch-carriers rally together on a crushing three-way mission for Deep Medi. Over the past half decade all three producers, Commodo, Kahn and Gantz have emerged as stalwarts of the 140bpm sound under custodianship of Mala and also for a bunch of the scene's most interesting, boundary-pushing labels. With their forces combined in this LP they frame the 2015 sound at its most far-flung and darkly engaging with a mix of mystic, textured samples and precision production yielding six overlarge, mutant creations. On the 1st disc you'll find the noir collages of 'AMK' wi… Read more

With carnival season in full flow we pull up 14 crucial riddims from the dancefloor diaspora. It's a worldwide ting, scattered between Ata Kak's infectious 1990 highlife 'Obaa Sima' thru the tracky Argentinian swerve of Matias Aguayo, and searing heat from Bordeaux-based kuduro star Nidia Minaj. At sticky points between, you'll cross the killah S.A. Gqom styles of Menchess, Dutch-Surinamese panic-tech from Anti-G, and even Detroit's Anthony Shakir flipping Grenadian Soca, plus a sassy little Shangaan number by Nozinja and the Trini-UK torque of Jus Now's 'Badder Than' attack… Read more

Outstanding dub-techno-skronk mutations from Beatrice Dillon, furnishing Where To Now? with her 2nd solo release after a string of acclaimed mixes and collaborations. With 'Face A/B' she pursues the more dubbed-out and technoid angles of the 'Blues Dance' session into crankier, stranger corners of the echo chamber in her own sort of uchronic parallel dimensions. 'Face A' is fired for the 'floor with her patented mix of tactility and abstraction, swirling Verity Susman's salty sax bleats around a stepping M-series dub base and swarming electronics with hypnotic sleight of hand and gyrosc… Read more
Stone cold killer right here - is this the closest we're gonna get to hear Zomby's Eski gear?
Huerco S returns to Anthony Naples Proibito label with the elusive house lushness of 'Railroad Blues'. Keyed in to new age bliss themes and squashed boogie house dreams, the Brooklyn-based producer unfurls three gorgeous pieces between the rubber-bassed fudge and NWAQ-style haze of 'Rushing To Paradise' and the head-swimming dub house lagoons of 'Marais Des Cygnes' before the mercurial disco motifs of 'Transit V (See See Rider)' layer and fray across the B-side with a sort of liminal house hymn quality. This is gonna melt some hearts, mark our words.
*The first release on Rabit’s new Halcyon Veil imprint is the debut from 21 yr old SW Londoner Myth. 7 Track EP including an instrumental version of Myth & Rabit’s rework of Ciara’s ‘Backseat love’* ‘Evaporate’ is the first issue from Rabit’s highly promising Halcyon Veil label, and also the exceptional solo debut from 21 year old s.w. Londoner, Myth. Infectiously emotive and nimbly weightless, it rotates seven slick grime and 2-step instrumentals including the instantly recognisable version of his and Rabit’s flip of Ciara’s ‘Backseat Love’. Its seven tracks were salvaged from a series of cheap,… Read more
**First ever vinyl issue, remastered and cut to wax at D&M, housed in screen-printed jacket by House of Traps** London's Sacred Summits present '1989', Psychick Warriors of Gaia's tribal psychedelic techno template, on vinyl for the first time. In another stroke of genius following the steepled highs of their reissue for Colin Potter's 'Entering Again', we're made privy to a zeitgeist bubbling thru late '80s European techno - an industrialized interzone of Lowlands EBM and Detroit house infused with a cybernetic, 4th world ambient consciousness. They're dangerously hypnotic an… Read more

**Die-cut and spot glossed sleeve, initial orders come with an AFX sticker!*Your favourite analog radge-packet puts the 'floor thru its paces on his 1st AFX outing since 2005. Housed in a homage to Warp's debut 12" from Forgemasters, the 'Orphaned Deejay Selek 2006-08' session returns to a twysty, funked-up sound last heard in the 'Analord' series - bending the lines of acid, electro and hardcore techno to his will. From the first whizz throughs a few jump out at us, especially the hi-velocity acid chicanery of 'Serge Fenix Rendered 2', or the agitated warehouse accelerations of … Read more
Weighty one-off from Kevin Martin, going hard in the wake of his 'Angles & Devils' LP. 'Zim Zim Zim' packs a barking performance from dancehall OG Burro Banton over depth-charge subs, parched drums and heatsick electronics, farther explored in the arid, warehouse-shocking 'Zim Version'. Heavy.
Rrose serves the DJs and dancers what they want with another descent into deepest experimental techno zones. Following a fallow few years, this has been a productive annum for the masked producer from the American West Coast, pursuing the esoteric exercise of 'Having Never Written A Note For Percussion', and the danceflkoor drills of 'For Acquantice' with five tracks purified and uncannily hypnotic number scanning slow techno in 'Adrift' along with the screwball bleep techno of 'Purge' and bloody minded abstraction of 'Curl'.
**Screen-printed jacket. Vinyl mastered by Rashad at D&M** The massed drone supergroup scale great heights and depths in their first communion for Drag City. Comprising the guimbri, gong, Arp 2600, Autoharp, drums and guitar of Joshua Abrams' Natural Information Society, plus Bitchin Bajas' organ, bass clarinet, flute and synths, 'Automaginary' is a prime example of when many magick cooks make for an even more magickal broth, coaxing out the kind of potent, viscose drones that vibrate you and your surroundings 'til they dissolve and deliquesce like honey. Arcin… Read more
This selection seeks out music for the twilight hours and beyond, attempting to divine a contemporary, ambient and abstract zeitgeist between non-related yet spiritually-connected artists. Embarking with the sublimated concrète scape of Helm's 'Sky Wax (London)', the tracklist takes in floating sensations from Body Boys and Thomas Brinkmann beside heart-in-gob beauties such as Nadia Khan's 'Milky Sweat' or Lara-Lis Coverdale & LXV's 'Disney', plus the bittersweet timbre of Alessandro Cortini's 'Ricadere', or 'My Nocturne' by Beatrice Dillon. At sci-fi cinema… Read more
**Includes art insert by Felix Lee** With 'Bound Adam' Total Stasis initiates a vinyl reissue series for Elysia Crampton's formerly digital-only releases as E+E. It comes months after Elysia's chrysalis-like transformation in the 'Moth/Lake' 7" for our Boomkat Editions label to remind the wider world of her rarified brilliance - which is no secret to her legion fans online. Originally released in 2011, 'Bound Adam' is, in her own words "…a speculative/ ontological poem about a relationship with a car", namely the huge Ford Ranger line which was discontinued in the same year and also starr… Read more

**Hot on the heels of her 'Folkways II' cassette mix for Trilogy Tapes, Beatrice Dillon does a dubbed-out "mutant shuffle" somewhere between Joe and Madalyn Merkey. Edition of 50 housed in two-colour risograph sleeves printed in recycled paper stock** "Where To Now? Are proud to present 'Blues Dances', a 30 minute exploration of sound and style which serve as a precursor to a forthcoming 12” and full length LP landing with us in early 2015. Beatrice's music although primarily electronic and sample based does not exist solely or comfortably within this world, there's an understated, … Read more
**A reminder of the purified techno excellence and electro-acoustic menace of Emptyset's 2009 debut album**Uncompromising minimalism from the Bristol underground courtesy of Emptyset and their long-awaited debut full-length. The duo have been exploring brutally reduced techno styles over the course of three 12"s for Caravan and Future Days since 2007, aligning the bass heavy sound of their Bristol heritage with the streamlined and linear structures of Berlin's Sleeparchive or Marcel Dettmann. For their self titled release they've extended the concept to a full album, allowing themselves to… Read more
*Edition of 300 copies* "A 33-minute epic piece touching upon the original that shifts our sails into uncharted waters. In this new CD edition, new found sounds have allowed us to paint an entirely new picture: tempo sped up to enlighten the sensation of floating to fresh air. Synopsis: zones are where we discover. In the deep, we revisit the places we have been in order to uncover where we are for what is now."
Ships in 10 days*Debut release on Lee Gamble’s newly minted UIQ label - strictly limited to 300 copies. The release comes from Hitherto unknown producer N1L, experimenting with club music to killer effect. Mastered and cut to vinyl by Rashad at D&M*
Dope and grimy London soul and electronic mutations from the mind of DVA and pals. His first outing since 2013 kicks off with the unstable electro-jazz hybrid, 'Allyallrecords' featuring reserved 808 contribution by Addison Groove, and goes on to stroke the R&B beauty, 'Pink22' featuring Clara la San, next to squirrelly, staggered collage oddness of 'Spoonbender' with Mickey Pearce and the pitching, Gqompatible solo mission, 'Perxoflyf'.
The prodigal son of sci-fi electronica re-enters orbit with an astounding new EP as Kuedo for his newly coined Knives imprint. Arriving almost a decade to the day since his game-changing Vex'd album with Roly Porter, 'Assertion Of A Surrounding Presence' manifests his first major new work since 2011's acclaimed 'Severant' album, and also marks a lucent new pinnacle of sound design/engineering in his field. Accompanied by cameo production roles from erstwhile Vex'd bod, Roly Porter, plus Berlin's Phoebe Kiddo a.k.a Mind:Body:Fitness, and Canada's Egyptrixx, the nexx chap… Read more
The world's most uncanny pop star, FKA Twigs, blindsides everyone with the jaw-dropping 'M3LL155X'. Announced via a game-resetting promo video, it accelerates the hypeR&B aesthetics honed in her early EPs and LP1 to critical levels, accentuating her captivating audness from every angle whilst lyrically skewering her critics and trolls like a T-1000 with liquid metal talons (or an alien blow up doll). The production is this time handled by FKA herself with Young Turks' Tic and even a guest contribution by Happa on the bittersweet centrepiece, 'In Time'; twysting with preternatural sensuality f… Read more

**An emotionally tortuous suite of seamlessly arranged ambient electronics, 4th world instrumentals and sweeping synth music. Hands-down the best 1080p release to date. RIYL Elysia Crampton, Alessandro Cortini, T C F** "“Ikea stores next to huge burnt out shipping warehouses, squats next to Whole Foods, Artisan flower shops with dead dogs outside. Litter on the breeze and foghorns blowing across the water. Sirens, porn stores, storage, prisons, dogs barking, carparks, fast food, highways, burnt out massage parlors, old tires, wire fences, empty buildings, bus depots, raw sewage flowing." … Read more
Kowton comes rugged but slinky on Nic Tasker's Whities label with his first solo 12" of 2014. A-side locks off a smart blend of roiling bass pressure and buoyant synth chimes in 'Glock & Roll' landing somewhere between Meng Syndicate's early Belgian techno and more twinkle-toed UK garage-house styles. On the B-side, 'Bits & Pieces' plays out that pensile light/dark flex with flash FM synth chords glinting off pinched bass and skittish marimba hook beside the infectious, booty-jugglin' percolator, 'Doing Nothing'. Straight tip!
Superb, charming EP of wistful and dreamy house fuzz, fresh outta Belgium. Working in orbit of Dresvn and the Acido crew or Pye Corner Audio, he swills wet electronics and pink-hued, gaseous pads in the Mr Soft swagger of 'Floor' and cuts deeper with the rounded yet scratchy groove called 'Liquide' that's loaded with lush, breathy synth voices. 'Pollution' is a delightfully coy and effervescent bit of ambient house, and 'Story' brings this chapter to a close with wheezing electronics and Crépuscular guitar strums. Tip!
**2LP gatefold sleeve with insert and detailed liner notes, edition of 300 copies** 'Yuen Shan' (Round Mountain in Chinese) is a fascinating and deeply meditative percussive suite first conceived in Taiwan, 1973 and realised in 2014 using pre-recorded tape sound and live percussion recorded over the interim. It's the first new Ranta release in 25 years, and just reminded us the hypnotic brilliance of his 1970 'Mu' collaboration with Conny Plank and Mike Lewis, which was reissued in 2010 by Metaphon (who're also behind those excellent IPEM collections). We're dealing with highly esoteric and… Read more
Vakula saddles up a proper band to trot thru a suite of stargazing tributes to The Doors, most specifically 'Dedicated To Jim Morrison'. Rather than a playing a straight cover album, the group riff on classic elements from the West Coast psychedelic unit's near-sacred corpus, taking artistic liberty to intersperse their gauzy strokes with William Blake poetry recited by Andrei Dubinin. As with everything gilded by Vakula's Midas touch, the production is pitch-perfect analog with the requisite amounta dust and hash in the studio air. The first side features those languorous vocals dr… Read more
**Lossless format for this release contains 24 bit/44.100 kHz audio** 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 crus… Read more
Shane English comes with slew of slo-mo industrial crushers for the excellent Unknown Precept label. Wall-to-wall filth in six gut-punching and petrifying parts, cranking from the sprung low-riders mechanics of 'Silent Coup' to manhandled industrial ambience in 'X (For Gray)' via the storage tank clangour of 'Retrograde' to effluent Low Jack styles in 'Am I That', and a swell of claggy bass lacerated with ice-pick snares in 'Negativ'.
Chunky, mongrel club constructions from the house of Trax Couture. Scanning a scene of sublow B-More breaks (inc. bonus B-Beat Girl stabs) with 'Poisonous Eye', he ramps the megadome reverbs and industrial drums with force in 'Optical Fracture', and tests out a killer UK jackin' mutation in 'After Image', to check out with the c*nty flounce of 'Bounce Track'.
**Mastered and cut by Matt Colton at Alchemy. Edition of 500** Crushing celestial tech-noise objects from Black Rain (a.k.a. Ike Yard's Stuart Argabright) with Shapednoise and Demdike Stare's Miles Whittaker. 'Apophis', so named after asteroid 99942 which poses an uncertain threat to humanity, was written and realised over summer 2014 and supposes four cuts of destructive electronics describing a potential, eschatalogical event and its aftermath in grim and unflinching detail. Black Rain and Shapednoise are clearly steeled and ready for what may come, from 'Metal Home's' premoniti… Read more

Choice disco-house edits by the brothers Lipsky from Moscow's Denis Simachev bar. The mutant Thai disco thing called 'Weirdshit Xu Paelk' on top sounds like it coulda come from a Sublime Frequencies Radio Bangkok session, whilst the flipside shuffles on a slick and naughty yacht-boogie pivot and 'It's Alright' brigns the steamy sauna vibes, gaye Marvin styes - "…It's all-right / to f**k all night…"
**Edition of 250 copies pressed on transparent red vinyl** The Polish composer, improvisor and sound artist gets right under the skin with this unsettlingly discordant slab for Bocian and his own label, Musica Genera. Powerfully concentrated on sustained, roiling electronic drones, 'Stara Szkoła Ze Złota (Old School Made Of Gold)' requires a steely stomach and ears to be ingested at volume - as it should be heard. The A-side's 'Calamitas' brings with it waves of nerve-tweaking frequencies, from viscous sub-sonics to keening, piercing highs right on t… Read more

Sound an alarm - Anti-G is back in the building! Four years after he presented 'Kentje'sz Beatsz' for Planet Mu, the Dutch bubbler comes back on his native Rwina records with a rave's worth of lurid, forward dance trax. In the time since we last heard him, Anti-G has thankfully stuck to his guns with 'Kush In Da Sound' serving six tracks of upfront, in-your-grill hardstyle synth squeaks and Afro-Caribbean torque quite unlike anyone else. They're largely longer than his previous efforts, with three tracks running over 5 minutes, as opposed to under 3 minute, giving more time to canter, bu… 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 o… Read more
Detboi comes thru on Keysound with a quartet of squashed and nasty jungle-tekno plays. It's a signature sound for the label, augmenting the ghosts of garage and jungle with a warped and up-to-the-second cyber-spacious quality. 'Scatter' leans in first, swallowing amens and super-wide bass at 130bpm, before 'Give Love' deals in diva-lead 'ardcore garage drama and we catch him at his ruggedest , most effective with the unshackled, mid-air amen 'ardcore geometries of 'Shots' and 'Pin Point'. Motion sickness.
