*Incredible album of oblique Batucada/Techno Hybrids - new on Hospital Productions* Nicolò Fortuni and Nico Vascellari's flamboyant Ninos Du Brasil battery make their Hospital Productions debut with an infectious blend of bespoke Batucada rhythms, techno and punk in 'Novos Mistérios'. It's a perfectly inappropriate release for Dominick Fernow aka Prurient's label, bound to baffle the purists and incite the dance in equal measures.

ECHOSPACE - Altering Illusions (Chapter One), Echospace
Steve Hitchell and Rod Modell present the first part of three double CD disc sets distilling their nebulous and cultishly adored catalogue in the wake of 2012's 4LP best-of, 'Altering Illusions'. In classic Echospace tradition,they pair original, hard-to-find material with exclusive versions. This first volume of three is dedicated entirely to Steve Hitchell's cv313 alias, offering thirteen misty variants on a closely defined dub house theme of fluid chord flux, heaving dub bass and expansive dub noise. Equally recommended to the hardcore followers and noobs looking to dip a toe in their tranquil waters.

The delicate synths and vocal harmonies, both positioned just so, can trace their origins to Paradinas's earlier milieu of 90s electronica, and even further back to 70s and 80s cosmicism, but they also resonate appealingly with contemporary moods in downtempo, such as those of Tory Y Moi or How To Dress Well.

As the stry goes, Niney was one of the only producers fearless enough to spend a lot of time in the Channel One studio after hours during a time of political unrest on the island. During his numerous all-night sessions he would lay down some heavyweight roots dub, many included here for the first time. His 'Channel One Burnign With Dub' is a revision of Horace Andy's 'Nice And Easy', while the wicked 'More Dub Pon Dub' uses one of Channel One… Read more

Cat. Number: AP002CD

Andrea Parker's Aperture imprint pays on the promise of its potential with a brilliant collaboration between Mira Calix and Seefeel's Mark Clifford. The tracks were all crafted intermittently between 1994 and 2004 over a succession of caffeine and nicotine fuelled night sessions, using whatever tools they had to hand and recorded onto a variety of formats, from to floppy discs to Dat Tapes and zip drives. When the pair revisited the material they decided the best method of presentation was raw and naked, no overdubs and very little post-production meddling, lending the album a delicious… Read more

*Truly intense album from this incredible band - bringing together visceral noise components and drone pop for their last ever studio album...* Legendary American noise unit Yellow Swans return with what is purportedly their final studio album and without doubt their most devastating collection of noise/drone recordings yet, a majestically defining album of collapsing supernova psychedelics. The announcement of their split in 2008 was met with shock from a community who've faithfully traced their arc over countless limited edition CDr's, cassettes and vinyl for an equally insurmountable numb… Read more

BASIC CHANNEL / DUB TECHNO

Cat. Number: ECHOCORDC7

Fluxion's reinstatement to the dub-techno forefront continues with his second album in as many years on 'Perfused'. There's no major leap forward for Konstantinos Soublis here, It's more just an affirmation of what all dub-techno heads already knew - Fluxion still makes killer ice-cool techno. For instance, most of the tracks here sound like they could have come out on Chain Reaction 10 years ago, perhaps bar a few Ableton sounds, there's little to distinguish the two. Fans of Substance & Vainqueur, Maurizio and Studio 1 should still get a kick out this. Recommended!

ELECTRONIC

Cat. Number: IMR02CD

Danish producer Anders Trentemoller completes a fairly major crossover move with Into The Great Wide Yonder, transitioning from his roots as a dancefloor-focussed producer and in-demand remixer all the way into mainstream pop. Don't be too alarmed by such a notion though, this move has been on its way for a while, with his first mix CD, Harbour Boat Trips dropping plenty of hints towards a predilection for more indie-ish, shoegazey fare. Even so, Trentemoller remains a formidable maker of beats, and there's still a driving kick drum at the core of the album's narrative. On an… Read more

INDUSTRIAL / WAVE / ELECTRO

Cat. Number: CT110CD

Originally appearing in 1983, Jeff & Jane Hudson's 'Flesh' is somewhat indicative of the unsettlingly sexual industrial electronic music of its era. It's called 'Flesh' for God's sake - how much more of a hunt are you gonna need? But it doesn't stop there, the rolling Chris & Cosey-inspired proto techno rhythms are drenched in the kind of sweat you only really find in room full of writhing bodies. It's the kind of seamy industrial music that often gets swept under the carpet; it wasn't all just European deadpan cold wave, 'Flesh' is a distinctly American take on the genre, and the Bosto… Read more
