ADAM X

Irreformable

Sonic Groove

Format_dot_cdCD // £12.49

TECHNO / HOUSE

Cat. Number: SGCD01

Techno legend Adam X at his industrial-strength best on his fifth album in this guise. With minimal airs or graces, 'Irreformable' is a seductive, straight-faced invitation to the dancefloor's dark side, exploring 10 tightly bound strains of techno informed by industrial EBM and noirish sci-fi atmospheres. Whilst this stuff may be in vogue within certain sectors, Adam proves his instinctive commitment to the sound with physically attuned rhythmic prompts - no funkless stidgy loops here - and heavy atmospheric pressure at best in the skulking, electroid opener 'Interchanges (Enter & Exit)', the inf… Read more

Cat. Number: PAMPACD010

Master remixer DJ Koze collects 14 of his best circa 2009-2014 on 'Reincarnations 2'. The first disc highlights his 'floor-raising tech-house remix of Moderat's 'Bad Kingdom' alongside his woozy blue takes on Herbert's 'It's Only' and 'You Saw It All', whilst the second disc presents his expansive, lolling rework of Mount Kimbie's 'Made To Stray' and a slow-building version of Caribou's 'Found Out', among others. Better yet, the third plate includes his mildly lysergic infection of Zwanie Jonson's 'Golden Song', a killer hip hop cut-up of Gonzales' 'Knight Moves' and a chamber jazz-tronica overhaul of Soap & Skin's 'Marche Funèbre'.

AnD deliver their long-coming debut LP, 'Cosmic Microwave Background' for Speedy J's Electric Deluxe label. It's a proper session, choking back 12 tracks (eight on LP) of galloping productions and acid with all the brute force and caustic atmosphere you'd hope for. But it's actually at its best when they step out of the loops and repetitive tricks into more wayward structures, as with the crushing lurch of 'Relic Radiation', the masticated industrial funk of 'Galactic Motion', or the plangent Alien transmission of 'The Surface Of Last Scattering'. If you're craving the out-and-out bang… Read more

SEBASTIAN MULLAERT & EITAN REITER - Reflections Of Nothingness, MULE MUSIQ
"“Enter The Spiral” - the title of the opening track by the first collaborative work between Sebastian Mullaert and Eitan Reiter - emerged out of a freeflowing improvised communication between the DJs and producers from Sweden and Israel. They first met at a festival in Tulum, Mexico where they played together at the end of the Mayan calendar. You cannot put their collaboration into one stylistic corner - you can only say that all their music distributes the feeling of an unvarnished musical trip.

Chicago's Jamal Moss aka Hieroglyphic Being is 'The Seer Of Cosmic Visions'. Arriving not long since his amazing 'Worst DJ Ever' mix for Reel Torque, this is his first studio album of 2014 - unusually so, considering that he self-released some seven albums in 2013 - drawing from previously vinyl-only releases and new experiments to document his most vivid, recent revelations. They all tend to the noisier, innately abstract side of his oeuvre - call it Rhythmic Cubism or Cosmic Be-Bop rather than "outsider house" - steeped in the EBM/ho… Read more

Second Storey, the new alias of Al Tourettes, presents a complex, tortuous solo debut LP on Houndstooth. Clearly inspired by classic AFX and Autechre, with 'Double Divide', he draws on a deep reserve of melancholy UK bass/techno expressions to realise his most intricate and outstanding compositions to date. Freed of the immediate need to drive a dancefloor, Storey invites the listener deeper into previously unobserved parts of his sound with a ten track narrative vacillating between swirly wormholes and spacious yet knotted grooves in a quicksilver play of tension and release, or light and… Read more

"Gui Boratto strings together various contemporary strands of pop-infused techno and house and translates them into his very own stream of groove consciousness - also an act of cultural appropriation, as both Abaporu's cover artwork and title suggest: putting an inspired twist on Brazil's most famous modernist painting from early 20th century artist Tarsilo Do Amaral, they draw from the rich history of Brazilian modern art, where European and indigenous influences would collide in the most exciting manner. Elegantly swinging album opener Antropofagia elaborates on this by directly referencing the… Read more

'Imagin' is the eagerly awaited debut album from Dark Sky for Modeselektor's Monkeytown label. Since their early 12"s for Black Acre and Pictures Music, we've witnessed Dark Sky evolve from a dextrous duo dealing in twisted post-dubstep, pop and techno hybrids to a canny trio pushing near-symphonic big room electronica/techno on a level with the likes of Jon Hopkins and Modeselektor. It feels very much of its time, spanning murky trip hop/dubstep-pop references in 'Nothing Changes', 'Vivid' and 'Rainkist' alongside lean, techy London house in 'Odyssey', and at best in the Kraftwerk-meets-Thom Yorke st… Read more

Ital continues to twist the putative conventions of house and techno on his third album in two years. 'Endgame' feels light years away from his earliest transmissions of natty, lo-fi house, and much closer to brooding, minimal, modern house and techno styles, eking out a headier, weirder space somewhere between the styles of Tin Man, Kassem Mosse, and Joey Anderson, for comparison. The difference between then and now is perhaps his switch from software to select pieces of hardware, resulting in a more linear plot and liquified, worm-holing momentum on 'Endgame', no doubt enhanced by mixing and mastering … Read more

PLASTIKMAN - EX - Performed live at the Guggenheim, NYC, Mute
'EX' is the first new Plastikman album in over ten years. It was recorded live at the Guggenheim Museum in New York at the behest of fashion designer, Raf Simons, a big Plastikman fan who booked Richie on behalf of Dior. And yet, whilst that setting may be a far cry from Plastikman's roots in warehouses and basements, the results distinctly hark back to the glacial modulations and optimised pulses of classics such as 'Sheet One' or 'Musik', but perhaps with smoother sort of tonal gradients and slippery arrangements that simply couldn't have been achieved two decades ago when Richie wrote the blueprint for minimal techno...
