Cat. Number: AM001

Rhythmic Theory smite the deadly first blow for Ancient Monarchy - a new sublabel administered by Berceuse Heroique. Holding his corner at the juncture of rude techno, D&B and darkside electronica, both tracks sustain the near-impeccable levels of his self-released singles and 12"s for Idle Hands, Happy Skull. 'Lucid State' surveys a ruff technoscape churning up ruggedest tribal drum patterns streaked with late '90s Bristolian D&B pads - think Krust, Dom & Roland, Decoder. On the other hand, 'Shores of Caladan' is one for the aerobic mystics, rolling out with hydraulik bass pressure … Read more

Soichi Terada presents a perfect entry point for any budding J-House connoisseurs with this compilation of slick aces off his Far East Recording label. Sought-after over there and everywhere else, they amount to a prime seam of early '90s house, with levels of plushness and seductive groove up there with the best stuff coming out of New York, Chicago or Detroit at that time. Best known to collectors and heads willing to shell out for originals, his sound has been championed of late by Ben UFO and Hunee, who're both known to slip his treats into their sets. But now everyone… Read more

**Lighning Bolt take the skin off it with their 1st album since 2012 - recorded in a proper studio, too!** "Fantasy Empire, Lightning Bolt’s sixth album and first in five years, is a fresh take from a band intent on pushing themselves musically and sonically while maintaining the aesthetic that has defined not only them, but an entire generation of noisemakers. It marks many firsts, most notably their first recordings made using hi-fi recording equipment at the famed Machines With Magnets, and their first album for Thrill Jockey. More than any previous album, Fantasy Empire sounds … Read more

TECHNO / HOUSE

Cat. Number: ESP025

The Black Country's kinkiest does it with style for ESP Institute. 'Laurentian Abyss' seduces us to a slinky 5/4 coda wrapped up with milky synthlines and daubs of colourful, breezy pads for heady and bodily effect. The Nodge-y acid base of 'Emergency' sounds unusually quick by Mark's normal standards, but the layered arrangement is still measured with the sort of poise and mesmerising patience we've come to expect from his productions.

Ilyas Ahmed really finds his voice in th captivating songs of 'I Am All Your Own', his first solo album since 'With Endless Fire' (2012). Rather than his usual instrumental arrangements, or the wordless poems of his Visitor duo-mate, Liz Harris a.k.a. Grouper, the Ahmed's dreamy, folk-tinged vocals are front and centre against wide, plush backdrops of his multi-tracked acoustic and electric strings blown out like some Fripp & Eno or Lawrence English composition. "Written and recorded entirely on 12-string and electric guitars, I Am All Your Own was recorded using a 4-track cassett… Read more

Mark System returns to dBridge's Exit Recordings with a pair of lean D&B aces. The ruder rolige of 'Optix' clearly and concisely nods to Matt Quinn's classic Optical productions; 'Pursuit' steps with snappier snares and desolate, finely sculpted techno atmospheres.

**Deluxe double album edition** Following up the success of his 'Black Dynamite' film score, Adrian Younge presents his latest endeavour for Wax Poetics: a dark mix of psychedelic soul and Hip Hop-inspired cinematic instrumentals under the name of Venice Dawn. 'Something About April' features Younge revisiting his earlier, more baroque instrumental work inspired by the likes of Morricone, Portishead and RZA, and consolidating that with the gritty soul of his Black Dynamite output to find a fertile, sweet and melancholic middle ground measured with his deeply studious, authentic approach.

"Continuing Infinite Machine's UK club takeover, LTD Colours contribute the murkiest of the murky for our latest entry,which is odd, considering the hard-hitting duo (comprised of Riccardo Baldoni and Federico Nosari) are from Milan. Their extensive background in jungle and drum & bass production, however, explains their unwavering allegiance to Commonwealth pirate radio sonics. Operating in between that and the Italian scene's penchant for turning bass music on its head, it's no wonder their EP is titled "In Between", and it's no wonder it's as liminal as they come.
