Cat. Number: RCD2029

*Repress* Supersilent have been a solid cornerstone in Rune Grammofon since the very beginning and are seen by many as representing the very essence of the label. From the monumental hardcore blizzard storms of 1-3 to the elegant electrojazz of 4 and the almost quiet soundscapes of 5, this new album is where the sum of all things Supersilent comes together in a shape of almost epic proportions. More than ever it appears clear that their music lives in a no man's land between the genres, somewhere between rock, electronica, jazz and modern composition. As with all their recordings and live performances, e… Read more

*Repress* This fourth Supersilent installment once again features the tantalising quartet lineup of Helge Sten (aka Deathprod), Ståle Storløkken (synthesizer), Arve Henriksen (trumpet), and Jarle Vespestad (drums). If you haven't encountered their work before, Supersilent 4 is a good place to start - a sumptuous arrangements of tracks often described as "Death Jazz", though the title is somewhat misleading. Deathprod's arrangements and production techniques loom large over these amazing pieces, coating the unnervingly wonderful trumpet playing of Arve Henriksen and the endlessly reverberated percussion l… Read more

WHITE NOISE (DELIA DERBYSHIRE) - An Electric Storm (Remastered Edition), Universal
*Remastered Edition* What do you mean you've never heard of White Noise? White Noise is the musical lovechild of producer David Vorhaus and electronic music pioneer Delia Derbyshire. There's little to connect this to her more well-known work as part of the Radiophonic Workshop - White Noise is at its core a psychedelic record, albeit with some incredible electronic production. The Silver Apples or the United States of America (considered by some to be White Noise's US equivalent) would be good reference points, but what White Noise managed was quite hone… Read more

Rooted in wayward modern funk, and brimming with emotive chicanery, 'Shelter' is a thoroughly considered, robust LP statement that stands out from the current crowd. Sounding out somewhere between Carl Craig's erogenous house and the psychedelic zones of Actress, it occupies an unstable, shifty mid-ground, in flux between tiered layers of classic analogue synths, tape machines and drum computers (check his feature on Fact magazine for a run… Read more

Reissue of Drexciya's first album proper and a milestone for Detroit and electronic music in general. It was first released in 1999 and has since been hailed as one of the enigma's most crucial missives. Opinions will differ, but this CD version is arguably the definitive edition, containing 21 tracks to the LP's 13, and a discernibly lucid digital mastering compared with relatively smudged frequencies on the 2LP vinyl. To put it simply, and without overstatement: this is one of the finest electronic albums ever made.

In 1983, a man named Lewis recorded an album named L’Amour, which was released on the unknown label R.A.W. And that’s about all we know. The record itself is a delicate, whispered album, reflecting the way the artist himself – spectral, movie star-like – almost disappears into the grey of the cover. It should come as no surprise that it failed to shout loudly enough to be noticed, another private press album that sank without trace. The ingredients are simple: smooth synthesizers, feather-light piano, ethereal, occasionally inaudible vocals and the gentle plucking of acoustic guitars. But the effects are… Read more
