Risveglio

HOSPITAL PRODUCTIONS

Format_dot_cdCD // £8.99

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. It's fair to say that we've never r… Read more

One of the more elusive producers out there, Sully isn't the most prolific, but everything he does release is of the highest quality: his 'Phonebox', to take just the most shining example, never leaves the box. Though he arrived on the crest of dubstep's second wave, it's not easy to pin down his sound: gritty, burnished UK garage is the key influence, but on this album there are significant nods too to footwork and 8-bar grime. 'It's Your Love' and '2 Hearts' openly pledge Sully's allegiance to the original El-B and Groove Chronicles sound, while 'I Know' and Trust' are juke made cinematic, their 808 s… Read more

William Basinski returns with 'Cascade' - a gorgeous 40 minute meditation on a solitary piano loop coaxed by NYC's neoclassical maestro, William Basinski. Teechnically, that's all you really need to know, but we should stress that Basinski's way with a loop transcends any prosaic, earthly description and manifests a music in its own self-sufficient world of infinitely morphing harmonics and decay as imperceptibly slow moving yet ever-changing as life itself. Highly Recommended.

WOLFGANG VOIGT - Ruckverzauberung 10 / National Park, Profan
We find Wolfgang Voigt in his natural habitat amidst the sweeping, Gas-like ambient scenery of 'Rückverzauberung 10'. Written to commemorate the opening of German national park, Hunsrück-Hochwald, where the piece is played through loudspeakers to enchant the woodland and vice-versa, it gracefully unfurls just over an hour of deep forested strings and quietly intoxicating atonality in a reflection of the the wild, rolling landscape and its natural topography. From the elegiac appeal to the woodland cover art, it's arguably the closest you'll come to Voigt's template-set… Read more

Dawn of Midi emulate the grid-like tensions of electronic/FX-driven music with only acoustic instruments - drums, bass and piano - in 'Dysnomia' (2013). originally issued by Thirsty Ear and now reissued by Erased Tapes, it's an impressive feat in the same way that Elektro Guzzi's albums are for their unnatural sense of timing and precision, attempting to synch ever closer to internal clocks of Midi linked music-making machines.

TECHNO / HOUSE

Cat. Number: AC84CD

**Includes download code for album plus 4 bonus remixes** The virtuosic sampler fiend and pioneering dancefloor composer presents his 1st new album of dance music in nine years with 'The Shakes' - effectively the follow-up to 'Scale' (2006). With an emotional range as fine and varied as his sample banks, the venerable UK composer spins out twelve tracks spanning signature hurky-jerky house patterns thru to sanguine soul drifts and jazzy big band antics, always with an idiosyncratic timbre and grain and blessed with the sort of chicanery that could only come from a composer confident in his techniqu… Read more

Chiffon-shaded ambient dance nostalgia from Western Canada. One for fans of 100% Silk, vintage Rephlex Records, Solvent** "Vancouver resident LNRDCROY’s sound of lightly cosmic electronica has been a while coming, but this hour-long collection of crystalline, memory-drenched tracks couldn’t come at a more perfect time as British Columbia transitions into Spring. “Much Less Normal” is Leon Campbell’s impressions of the city and surrounding natural environs, built with subtle synth pads from a hefty stack of old Roland and Yamaha gear; warm, obliquely contemplative keyboard ambience and ascend… Read more

VILOD (RICARDO VILLALOBOS AND MAX LODERBAUER) - Safe in Harbour, Perlon
*Ships Monday* In which Ricardo Villalobos and Max Loderbauer unlock the mysterious codes of jazz and techno with a menagerie of modular kit, computer software and instruments. Landing a week after the sterling new MvO Trio album with Tony Allen explored similar realms, ViLod get deep between the wires in a seven track showcase of preternatural studio sensibility and dexterity. Those hoping for a tricksy tech-house roll out will be disappointed but, anyone who has willed the pair to follow their noses farther into the jazz/techno schism will be rewarded with… Read more

'Dream memory' is the 2nd album of soul-burning celestial synth music by Implodes guitarist Ken Camden for Kranky. Drawing upon Indian raga, chamber-like plainsong and classic kosmiche, it's a richly synaesthetic and heightened sensory experience harmonised to the rafters and radiating lushness from every angle.

**4AD sum up the short, dark and brilliant life-span of London post-punk unit, In Camera, circa 1979-1982 thru a collection of singles, Peel Session recordings and previously unreleased tracks** "Active between 1978 and 1981, in the thick of London’s post-punk scene, they enjoyed an intense and fruitful short time together. Coming to the label’s attention when they supported Bauhaus at the Billy's venue in Soho, their only releases came with two singles in 1980 – the double A-side 7” of ‘Final Achievement’ and ‘Die Laughing’ (AD 8) and the IV Songs EP (BAD 19).

Dr. Alex Paterson and Thomas Fehlmann a.k.a. The Orb return to Kompakt with 'Moonbuilding 2073 AD' - their 16th studio album and first for Kompakt in a decade. The pair still sound like a pair of stoners making music for themselves to hotbox the studio, and that's pretty much exactly what their legion followers are after. 'Moonbuilding 2703 AD' breaks down to four extended pieces, each one swimming in oceanic sub-bass and swarming with psychedelic FX. 'God's Mirrorball' hovers into first with their patented formula of daft vocal samples precipitating heavier clouds of dub-house chords an… Read more

Cat. Number: WIGCD361

Summer's friend, Matthew Mondanile a.k.a. Ducktails presents a persistently sweet new studio album; his first since 2013's 'The Flower Lane' and arguably his lushest yet. Sporting guest spots from Julia Holter and James Ferraro, and tooled with production by Rob Schnapf, co-producer of Elliott Smith's 'XO' and 'Either/Or', it's a baroque-tight collection of classical pop, flush with cascading melodies, tender fretwork and sing-along vocals. It was recorded throughout 2014 and into 2015 at a variety of locations, from L.A. to NYC and Berlin, oftentimes while on tour with Real Estate, marking the… Read more

*Ships Friday* RP Boo, the OG source of all things Chicago footwork, comes correct with a killer 2nd solo album for Planet Mu. 'Fingers, Bank Pads & Shoe Prints' is an armoury of battle trax for the 'floor, delivered with a conviction and density of energy that's impossible to ignore if you're into electronic dance music or the lineage of Afro-American sonics. As with its predecessor, 'Legacy', this album is a showcase of RP Boo's finely-honed dancer's instinct and incisive sampling technique, using uniquely fractured motifs and complex repetitions to reconfigure our physiology, s… Read more
