*Jeez - think you know Muslimgauze? Check this incredible album out...* Golden Muslimgauze gear retrieved from the vaults by Staalplaat. This is the strain of Bryn Jones' music that we cherish the most, mixing prickling EBM/electro patterns with lilting percussion, gloaming pads and field recordings, rather than his distorted loop jams. As we know, he would create umpteen versions of tracks which could sound very similar but we're actually all subtly different arrangements to each other. There are nine takes on the same palette of elements in 'Zilver / Feel The Hiss', including l… Read more

Cat. Number: DUB004

Squashed and killer psy-house flex from Bristol's Lily backed with a mega Madteo remix. As many clued-up heads know, Lily's 2013 debut for Idle Hands and follow-up cassette album with No Corner were some of the dopest, ruggedest slow house mutations of recent years. With 'Memory Jacket' he follows suit with a crushed, late night chugger primed with murky bass toil and head-spinning electronics for after-hours blues and red-lit basements. Madteo's remix is equally grimy, gradually finding its groove at a skanking 111bpm bounce skudged with acrid white noise and buckled bass buoyed by Berlin dub chords. Straight winner.

'Music for Amplified Keyboard Instruments' is a beautiful synth music obscurity by a largely unsung hero of the genre, David Borden. Originally released in 1981 on the little-known Red label outta Holland, it has been reclaimed from the safety masters and reissued for your delectation by John Elliott's Spectrum Spools nearly 33 years later. Quite understandably, many heads are suffering synth ennui with the sheer tide of forgettable reissues in circulation right now, but this one is like a sad beacon in swelling seas, radiating the sweetest melodies and harm… Read more

Another monstrous blow-out from Craig Clouse's $&$, returning to Rocket Recordings after assaults on Diagonal and ahead of their Editions Mego LP. Brandishing distorted guitars, clogged samplers and bucket-loads of gonzo attitude, Clouse runs amok from the diesel-fuelled horsepower of 'Electric Pony 2' to a loping, trunk-rattling beat jam, 'Egg Mm-Muffin / Pimp Different' via daft sampler exercise, 'C2-6', to cracked and swaggering breakbeats in 'Goat $hit' and the ruder clip of 'Love Your Hair - Hope You Win!'. And the potential song-title of the year award goes to 'Writing Poetry On Your Forehead With The Tip Of a Hunting Knife'. Wot a charmer.

Pev & Kowton serve the first new, original material on Livity Sound in over a year. They return industrialised and eager with the fibrillating kicks and ECG bleeps of 'Signal 3' up top, holding a wicked tension between monotone rhythm 'n drone with gear-slipping chord changes that mark it somewhere between Levon Vincent and recent Beneath plays. Down below, 'Low Strobe' channels the pressure into thrumming, hydraulik subs while flanging notes stalk the scene, waiting for the shaft-of-light breakdown.

Arriving hot on the heels of 'Heterocetera' by another Houston-rooted producer, Lotic, the 'Baptizm' EP presents Rabit's smartest, most concise productions to date; 4 tracks, just over 10 minutes of crystalline, piquant electronics feeding off elements of classical composition, instrumental grime and computer music. Much like Arca, he's a master of reduction and efficiency for maximalist effect, whether cramming lucid, violent detail into every millisecond of music… Read more

Clocking in at near enough mini-LP length between the tortuous 17-minute A-side 'Tragedy of the Commons' and a pair of tribal spectres on the flip, it's certainly the most ambitious, and arguably most impressive release in the veteran producer's armoury.

Cat. Number: DNNA1201

Housed in brilliant photo-sleeve, DVA Damas' 'Wet Vision' proposes a more technoid, gloomy sound from Taylor Burch and Joe Cocherell on Downwards America. Techno proper is implied by the thumping kicks and tetchy tempo of 'Wet Vision' and the staggered swagger of 'Theme For Silence', but not at the expense of their bone-dry desert goth aesthetic. However, the B-side strays farther from their usual style with the arterial throb of 'Wet Vision Pt. II', which actually sounds closer to HTRK, and the pulsing, slinky stalk of 'On Your Heels' which sounds almost like Tropic Of Cancer doing techno proper.

An absolute doozy from Workshop introducing four new names to the label. Uptown, Manchester's Willow makes her debut entrance with a deeply smudged slice of house soul in 'Feel Me' and Tapes totally blindsides with the perfectly blue R&B/digidub delicacy, 'Somebodies baby'. Downtown, UK electro survivor Steven Horne (Even Steven from Z-Bop) aka The Horn blushes the gorgeous 'Villager', and it's back to Manchester with some woozy NWAQ craic in the 'Lost Track' pearl by meandyou.'s Herron. Highly recommended.

Sonically, we can trace the record's roots back thru the narky grooves of Spanish industrialists, Esplendor Geometrico, while the album name and track titles pay tribute to J.A.C.
