Cat. Number: OPAL049

Fugged-up, emotive electronica from Jimmy Billingham's Holovr alias, returning to Opal Tapes with his first vinyl release. 'Holo Earth' follows the scuzzy sci-fi themes of 'Lunar Lake' with a spirited collection of droning pads, murdered jungle and cracked techno nodding to early Autechre, no wave electronics and dark ambient musics. We can hear contemporary parallels in certain sectors of the Bristol sound between Young Echo and No Corner, but it's all much more blown out and degraded, even ambiguous, strung between celestial new age dreaminess, rugged rhythms and morphing patina of hiss and… Read more

Lil Jabba brings different, trippy styles to the fore on his keenly awaited follow-up to the 'Scales' album for Local Action. On 'Gully' for True Patnther, the Brooklyn-based producer adds potent traces of techno, trap, and jungle to his Footworking frameworks in six parts covering a broader range of tempos and moods. We can think of few producers in this field who apply such a painterly sensibility to their work, from the fluid darkside strokes, sprayed beats and pointillist melody of 'GRoTTo Anthem' to the hyper-detailed, lucid nightmare vision of 'FLeXIN. (Jabba's CuT.)', taking in the odd-wo… Read more

The dramatic original is given time and space to let that Dr. Who-style bass riff and soaring synth to take flight across the A-side, whilst the flip brings the funereal slow techno processional, 'Bulk Erase', into play beside a roiling, radiant render from Old Apparatus, who also fold in oriental field recordings to abstract and exotic effect.

Nerve-rattling electro and cyber-punk from Travis Galloway (Traag, All Gone Records) in Siobhan mode for Opal Tapes. The title of 'Southgate' refers to a nefarious area of his home city, Michigan, and signifies a broke, rusty industrial aesthetic that creeps under the skin like crack bugs in a Philip K Dick novel. The mood is harsh and unforgiving from the sludgy trudge of 'Del Ray '97' to the Mid-West electro-tech shudder of 'Rail Spit', cutting loose on neon-lit city street scenes like some leather-clad golem brought to life by 'Citrac'-era James Ferraro and Cleveland's James Donadio aka Pro… Read more

The original is all heart-rending guitar chords and stadium-sized dance-rock thump, whereas Bibio's remix is dead sweet, reworking the chords on acoustic guitar with little reverse tape loops and Rhodes fills burnished with bird song and quiet, rustic drums.

21 years in the game, Mike Paradinas aka µ-Ziq sticks to his guns with the charming retro-futurism of 'Rediffusion'. It's a sweet exercise in melodic nostalgia filtered thru modern rhythm prisms, starting up with the utopian, footwork-infected junglism 'Taxi Sadness' before investigating slower tempos in the following five cuts thru the airborne waltzer 'Rimmy' and Kuedo-esque dry drum programming of 'Blem' to the collapsing sci-fi structures of 'Smeester' and the eerie, Library-style themes of 'Tambor'. As always, that blend of naif insouciance and eldritch oddness hits the spot like the few others.

Jazz and hip-hop are the album's touchstones, but heard thru a poetic prism of broken beat, electronica and latinate new age atmospheres shaping up to be some of Falty DL's most distinguished, nuanced productions.
