**Another tour of M. Geddes Gengras' wired mind, following the Moog years volume with eight purely modular constructions again for Umor Rex** "New Process Music represents a major aesthetic shift for M. Geddes Gengras, fusing the long-form modular compositions he had been exploring on a bevy of small-run cassette releases with a new obsession with post-production editing to create a deeply tuned aural environment, lush in analog electronics that are gritty along the edges, with rich textures and melodies materializing and wafting away like smoke.

Cat. Number: UTTU_046

Swing Ting co-founder Samrai meets Rüf Dug, on a filtered street-rave tip for UTTU, backed with Hashman Deejay and Zanzibar Chanel remixes. Their first observation muddles Manc dancefloor history with an anachronistic blend of dusted boogie soul and jungle breaks sounding like some mutant Juice Box TP discovered in the Chorlton Oxfam, and likewise, the breathy synth voices, tropical chirps and latinate shuffle of '2nd Observation' could almost be from some Hulme-o-naut's bedroom in '91. Hashman Deejay gives a smoother ambient house re-lick of '1st Observation' and Zanzibar Chanel chimes in with a greased up remix of '2nd'.

"After Chris Clark had passed some of Gajeks sheer endless output over to Modeselektor, quite a few listening sessions followed. Ranging from postrocky electronica to complex and moody renderings of intricate introverted beat structures to a mutant dance music, a whole audioscape had to be discovered. There were songs and tracks and experiments there, morphed vocals and reverberated non human instruments, complex percussion patterns and sweet athmospheres, but in all these different paths and moods, a penchant for working with a leitmotif could be traced.

**Extended post-punk/doom session from an Ascetic House artist defected to Downwards** "Marshtepper resides somewhere on the other side. Gutter intellectualism put to sound, their first proper vinyl release is an extreme meditation on the reintegration of desire and the legitimation of individual corporeality, which reaffirms the hermeneutics of the unspoken. This is music that adds to the validity of the natural, an illusion of millennial hedonism."

Outstanding mid-tempo disco session from Mark E for Futureboogie. Ask us, we'll tell ya this is probably the best we've ever heard from the Brummie producer. The A-side's 'Activity' is a dangerously hypnotic chugger riding the slickest bass arpeggio on astral trajectory to proper, Carpenter-esque peaks; B-side gets right down with the buttered claves and fruity yet minimal synth strokes, and 'Shapes' comes off like some long lost NWAQ production. Choice.

Heads-down in the dance with four brooding breakbeat and ambient garage figures from Synkro for Apollo. 'Someone' tugs on the heart-strings with solemn arrangement of sweeping pads and Toasty-style breakbeats; the ghostly 'Transient' flits around Burial and dBridge-style late romance; 'Contact' slips into something more comfortable with silky dowsntrokes and a vocal reminding of Steve Spacek; 'Falling' nods to mid '00s electronica with a poised blend of Ulrich Schnauss and Arovane-esque motifs anchored by a minimalist UK groove.

"Medical Records presents a very special double A side reissue of Fullerton, CA band Null And Void. Null And Void recorded 3 albums (1980’s “Happiness And Contempt” , 1982’s “Montage Morte” and a 3rd in 2012). Both of the 1980s LPs have relatively short playtimes, so we have decided to reissue both in their entirety on each side of this reissue. Hailing from a very diverse musical scene, Null And Void forged their own sound fusing elements of new wave, post-punk, cabaret and less characterized roots. Both of the LPs have gone long out of print and have become c… Read more

The title cut rolls out some dusty bleeps and gruff raps like a long lost MF Doom joint produced by Dilla - sh*t you not! 'Sprites' is more robotic, abstract, reminding of Divine Styler, and 'Summertime Skeetin' gives it some low slung UK rap attitude besde the frazzled lurch of 'Monster'.

The yung Parisian crew step deeper with the blue sci-fi atmospheres and in-the-pocket grooves of Jean Nipon's 2nd 12" for the label. Sealing the airlock entrance with the near beatless 'Eerie', the session turns to simdeck deep house ambience with 'Daydream Nation' before tucking into the crooked machine patter and sino melodies of 'I Ow You So Much', saving the best for last with a percolating piece of steel drums, jagged drum machine patterns and exotic robo voices in 'Up North'.
