Cat. Number: ISPOON51

‘Out Of Reach’ has been unavailable in any official format since its original release in 1978 and is one of Can’s rarest, lesser-known albums. This is due in a large part to the fact that bassist Holger Czukay left the band and drummer Jaki Liebezeit has a reduced role, leaving most of the rhythm duties to percussionist come-lately Reebop Kwaku Baah. As on the group’s proper swansong, 1977’s ‘Saw Delight’, new bassist Rosko Gee largely leads the group, and his jazz-inflected playing is marvellous, especially on the centrepiece improvisations ‘November’ and ‘Serpentine’.

Melbourne's Mark Wundercastle serves 1080p their heaviest techno session to date with the 'Cell' EP. Six tracks take inspiration from 2nd wave Detroit techno, cyber cafes and early '00s Euro bangers, ranging from the bouncing jack of 'AC' and moodier synth streaks of 'FRDM' to the Shed/Soloaction-style breakbeat rave techno of 'Gute Zeiten' and 'NZ721'.

Cat. Number: GI-221

Ghostly International's most emotional artist makes good with the shoe-gazing, euphoric electronica of 'Spectre', blessed with a tender, jazzy Bibio rework. 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.

Cat. Number: MDR 13

Luke Slater remixes Marcel Dettmann in a trio of wicked PAS versions. 'Apron' from MDR 06 is condensed to a tripping wormhole of flickering rimshots, hypnotic bass and lip-bitingly tight hi-hats in the 'Tubed Mix 2', and properly roughed up in the Rhythm Mix. 'Rush' on the other hand, is rearranged for 'Deep Release', meaning a steady build and filtered white noise breakdowns designed to take the big rooms by hook or crook.

*Reissue on Superior Viaduct* "San Francisco's first and only rock n' roll band, Crime loomed over the entire Mabuhay Gardens scene with their blistering 1976 single "Hot Wire My Heart." Crime's loose, damaged rock n' roll was as immediate as it was controversial. They were Punk by any definition, yet shunned the label with a guttersnipe sneer. Their meticulously cultivated aesthetic of S&M graphics and police uniforms produced some of the era's most indelible imagery. One of their finest moves was playing in the San Quentin prison yard.

**Deliciously strung out twilight music for fans of Ensemble Economique** "Legendary Hearts ooze an elusive chemistry. The collusion of Andrew Cowie’s disembodied synth sensibility and Kieran Hegarty’s fluorescent liquid guitar lines result in strange medicated states not easily grasped on first pass. Their previous (and only other) recording, 2012’s Songs From The Elevator, plays a little like the softest soft-rock sieved through a porridge of melted pills: chemical, blank, alluring, indistinct.

There's a uniqueness in his mantra, he achieves an engrossingly lucid state within listening that is quite unlike anyone else currently working within the realm of damaged and mutated techno ambience.

Esher (ov Blocks & esher) rolls out two forward D&B riddims for Doc Scott's 31 Recordings. 'Deep Architecture' locks off a big boy bass roll with tight tribal drum loops slashed by minimalist synth licks. Proper 2014 jungle pressure. 'Spirits Bounce' is more sci-fi romantic, contouring oily Reese bass to sparse, tech-stepping drums and panoramic pads. Gotta be one of the most stylish, emotive new D&B singles we've heard this year.

Over four pieces they explore diffuse, free-formed spaces charged with a slow-moving, chaotic sort of energy ranging from the shuddering metallic resonance and bleak, streaking industrial tones of 'Qzhyd' to t… Read more
