Ralph Cumbers' Bass Clef debuts on PAN with four pieces of fluent modular acid. The most substantial dancefloor drop on a tour of duty which has seen him release on Public Information, Punch Drunk, Alter, and Mordant Music (as Some Truths) in the past 6 months or so, his 'Raven Yr Own Worl' EP carves a dead English dance sound from his favoured Bug Brand modular system, made by Tom Bug of Bristol. For want of a more concise phrase, it's a Radiophonic Dub Rave style, coming off like the eager offspring of Luke Vibert and Graham Massey after a night on Cornish acid. A-side fires up the … Read more

The title tune renders a brutalist arrangement of face-melting synthline rushes meshed to teetering, filigree slow-fast programming like some futurist Michael Mann soundtrack, and 'Shinra' heads far east in a spiralling vortex of hyper arpeggios punctuated by heavy s… Read more

'Highbury Skyline' is more menacing and tough, still retaining that dizzying sonic separation that makes this new wave of Grime productions so compelling and fucking out there. Amazing EP this.

Butterz Royal-T and Flava-D set the levels to fruity UK garage house on their debut collaboration. 'On My Mind' bubbles up classic Korg M1 bass notes, zipping purple riffs and slinky swing for the big people; B-side brings a ruder, bassline-driven Version 2, and a lush, airborne 2-step Version 3.

Cat. Number: RVNGNL025CD

Probably our favourite release on RVNG Intl comes from metal duo Lee Buford and Chip King aka The Body produced by Bobby Krlic aka The Haxan Cloak for their crushing 4th album, 'I Shall Die Here'. Abetted by Krlic's visceral production, The Body sound more fearsome and physical than ever before, shaping a series of tracks which only seem to get more intense and nightmarish as the trip takes hold. From the funereal trudge of opener 'To Carry the Seeds of Death Within Me' we pass through successive stages revealed like some hemlock-induced hallucination, from the eschatological resignatio… Read more

Cat. Number: SP034

Exceptional, dazzling modular synth compositions from the boss of Chicago's underground incubator, Catholic Tapes for John Elliott's Spectrum Spools. A filigree mesh of field recordings and "ritual variations of a singular patch for Modular Synthesis", Naucke's 3rd solo LP since his 2010 debut for Arbor is a sophisticated and inquisitive thing of wonder, framing a macroscopic vision equally guided by academic, avant-garde intuition and painstaking studio process. Unlike so many modular pieces that feel as though we're simply being extruded thru a long wormhole, Brett's compositional strategy is… Read more

Strickly pounders from techno strongarm J. Tijn for Untold's Pennyroyal label. 'Yearn' stomps across the A-side with engorged kicks and strobing rave alarm synthline filtered at crucial moments; 'Innart' cog up the B-side with a grubbing, masticated acid assault beside the buzzing techno dub 'Nuke'.

*Ron Morelli returns with an 8-Track / 30 Minute EP of tense, claustrophobic all new material for Hospital Productions, a follow-up to last year’s ‘Spit’ and ‘Backpages’ releases* Ron Morelli returns to Hospital Productions with a deeply claustrophobic set of new tracks, described by Morelli himself as "...the culmination of a mission gone wrong." Far removed from anything you might have heard on L.I.E.S. over the last couple of years, 'Periscope Blues' evokes a sense of isolation and alienation so palpable and affective that it belies the off-the-cuff production style Morelli has spo… Read more
