Mike Simonetti (Italians Do It Better) inaugurates his 2MR (Two Mikes Records) label with this lush debut double slab as Pale Blue with vocalists Liz Wight (Silver Hands) and Jana Hunter (Lower Dens). The vibe gauge is set to heartfelt from the outset, strafing component elements of melodic techno, dream-pop and disco with a dancefloor-honed sense of motorik trance momentum and romance. Simonetti's previous credentials are as diverse as they are impressive, covering so much ground between his punk background at Troubleman Unlimited and the disco inspirations of Italians Do It … Read more

**Gorgeous, intricate suite of microscopic, textural dub electronics and bass pulses sounding somewhere between Alva Noto, Pole and Bernard Parmegiani** Italian electro-acoustic maestros Giuseppe Ielasi and Nicola Ratti, aka Bellows, serve an engrossing, labyrinthine LP of freeform concrète dub on our occasional Boomkat Editions label. 'Rustl' is Bellows' 4th album following a critically acclaimed trio of LP's released since 2007 for Entr'acte, Planam and Kning Disc, and also follows our last release by another Milanese artist, Lorenzo Senni, which was coincidentally also mastered by Giuseppe Iela… Read more

TVO's Broken20 label launches its new live recording series, Tangents, with documentation of his tunnelling collaboration alongside Emptyset's Paul Purgas, captured at Guild of Calamitousintent, Glasgow Art School, 2014. Both well aware of each others work, they approached the performance as an improvisatory, aleatoric happneing, both armed with banks of material and open to what may come. As you might expect, it gets noisy, and there is some semblance of techno in there but, the results are really neither one or the other. They summon an amorphous, involving… Read more

Sneaker Club capture Bass Clef at his sweetest, almost Balearic-sounding, with 'Present Moment Only Moment'. "Across previous releases on Punch Drunk, Werk, Rex Records and Blank Tapes, Bass Clef has effectively melded live instrumentation, nifty analogue synthesis and intricate drum work. In his ‘Moment Only Moment’ EP he makes no exception as he offers up a deluge of saccharine melodies and flecks of 90’s Rave and UK Garage all substantiated by thick, forceful subs."

Beamed from Montréal via Texas, Marie Davidson yields a gorgeous suite of alien synth pop sung in seductive French and English tongues. Her 3rd album, 'Un Autre Voyage' is an accomplished sound, proving an adroit touch over various sub-strata of coldwave and synth-pop compositional styles. Launching at an astral adjunct to Group Rhoda with the motorik drive and pensile synth drone of 'Boulevard Tascherau', she comes over all SPK or Skinny Puppy with the excellent 'Excès de Vitesse' (god this is sexy) and devolves into ghostly drone recalling 51517 with the expansive vision of 'Kid… Read more

"This cover of Brian Eno's seminal Discreet Music is a musical epilogue for Kid606's Bored of Excitement full length out in May. This single 30 minute song maintains the spirit and harmonic progressions from the original, but it eschews synthesizers and tape loops in favor of multitracked piano, multiple reverbs and pitch-modulated phasing. Discreet music came before Eno's Ambient 1: Music for Airports. It laid the foundation for modern ambient music by building upon Erik Satie's "furniture music" concept. Eno employed a generative compositional technique … Read more

Exquisite dream pop perfection from Nautic's lead singer, Laura Groves. Originally hailing from Shipley near Bradford and arriving with co-production by Deek's revered label boss, Bullion, Laura gets all the bonus points before we've even started, then she goes and gives her debut solo record an amazing title like 'Thinking About Thinking', and, well, put a fork in us 'cause we're bloody done. Laura's in possession of a folk-wise R&B croon that'd make marines weep, and employs it with captivating beauty on four mirage-like songs written shortly after she moved from God's own… Read more

Like bloody buses, Warp roll out another nugget from Aphex Twin with alternate versions of 'MARCHROMT30A Edit 2b' and 'XMAS_EVET1 N' off the Japanese and worldwide versions of 'Syro'. The first edit starts up sounding like Haswell spatterblatz before melting breaks and willowing chords across the synapsez with signature AFXian lushness, whereas the fast mix does it all again at a spannered 45rpm, resulting queerer, creamier tunings. The alternate mix of 'XMAS_EVET1 N' is half the length of the original, nipped and licked like some gem from ICBYD.

In Tim Hecker's hands 'The Sky Opposite' is elevated and expanded to a heady flux of gaseous harmonics and lilting melody only just anchored by rippling, golden gamelan tones, and Bibio hears 'Ann River, Mn' as a peeling piec… Read more

As part of Planet Mu's 20th Anniversary scheme, Chevron presents a haul of mutant riddims penned between 2002-2007. Originally planned as the follow-up to 'Everything's Exactly The Same' (2005), the tracks ended up languishing on the Blackpudlian's hard-drive until Mike Paradinas hacked 'em out with a chisel. It feels very much of its time, coming to terms with an adolescent obsession for The Prodigy and '90s rave, coupled with a taste for the very earliest stirrings of dubstep and a reckless, collaged aesthetic which cannily resonates with current strains a la Physical Therapy or Total Freedo… Read more

Fresh, radio-friendly garage-soul from new Rinse signing, Billon, backed with Todd Edwards and Nu:Tone hook-ups. 'Nothing' creams a slinky 2-step lather replete with pleading soul vox; 'Dive In' drops on a more stripped-down, late night London house sound. Better yet, Todd Edwards lends a godly touch to the oh-so-smooth swing of 'Don't Be Givin' Up', and Nu:Tone lend some flash '80s Fairlight synth emulations to the lean house pattern of 'Holding On'.

Pixelord comes across like a glitchy, schoizoid answer to Lone with his sparkling debut album, 'Places'. With a catalogue of kinetic releases under his hat for the likes of Berlin's Leisure System and Civil Music, he arrives at 'Places' brimming with a taut and colourful electronic funk breaking down garage, footwork and slow/fast hip-hop into ten lush, flighty arrangements. If we're pointing out highlights, then the deep and gritty house swirl of 'Berlin' is up there, as is the druggy, refractive electro sensuality of 'Phuket' and the strange, squirming electronic figures and psychedelic derangement of 'Beijing'.

Shlomo rolls emotional in his long-awaited 3rd LP of instrumental hip hop hybrids. 'Dark Red' distills a viscous mix of coldwave and shoegaze memes together with ghostly traces of jungle, grime and footwork to a more mature, vintage-sounding appeal. It feels as though the tracks were created out of time and place; cherry-picking and arranging the choicest morsels of bygone styles before burying them in a rusty reel-to-reel tin and allowing the whole thing to gently emulsify. The resulting, foisty candies are aged beautifully and marked up with titles that ring true with their dysphoric pallor a… Read more
