Taking cues from the long shadow of the mid '80s, this selection circles original European new wave disco styles and their modern antecedents. We're talking slower, sleazier and darker grooves like Liaisons Dangereuses' 'Aperitif de la Mort' or Lena Platonos' 'Shadows Of Blood beauty, right thru to Lena Willikens with the narcotic deliquescence of 'Nilpferd' or the brooding swagger of INIT's 'Talking About Talking' beauty for Hivern Discs. We've included a couple of old gems you would likely find at the AB in Brussels circa '86, namely Executive Slacks' 'So Mote It be'… Read more

Ending up somewhere between Miharu Koshi and Omar S on his debut electronic release, Wywy Brix steps into dance music as a vehicle for somatic/catharsis/release/healing. “Clear Licorice” uses emotional melodies and repetition to sit on feelings and move the body for a wonky, acid-y take on spirituality stoked on swinging rhythms, romantic vibes and jazz chords.

Nick Edwards a.k.a. Ekoplekz explicitly pays homage to his formative influences with 'Reflekzionz' - kosmisch electronics and '90s electronica - on his 3rd LP for Planet Mu. Radiophonics references are swapped for a reverie of early AFX, Autechre and Wolfgang Voigt, among others, filtered thru his grubby dub lense to slot grittily with his previous. And, rather than bleached out tones, 'Reflekzionz' is fringed with a faded colour scheme psychedelically reflected in Zeke Clough's dreamlike sleeve artwork, creating a sort of false-memory implant aesthetic that frames his sound like a polaroid recollection of the originals.

Aught's enigma grows with each new release, here revealing the 2nd batch of blunted yet kinetic techno deviations from ACI_EDITS. We don't know who they are or what they use to make this stuff, and we like it that way. It's proper techno. There are five cuts again, keeping the vibe elegantly f**ked between what sounds like vintage Matrix in '06' to the phasing tribal techno swarm of '07' and full sunken aquatic techno in '09' and '10'. There are clear comparisons to be made with Opal Tape aesthetics but, we can hear more of a dancer's sensibility and sensitivity to slippery syncopation in these grooves, rather than rockin', locked-on jack. So, so good.

Rolling on for Loefah's 81, Mickey Pearce takes a breezier, technoid tack with 'Warm Barzz' following the freaky funk of his 'Instructions' EP. The title cut is lushed out yet driving, marrying crisp ambient chords with a swinging tribal techno groove and stranger cyber-dub FX, whilst 'Stick Fingerprints' explores new age chimes and Gold Panda or OPN-like vocal chops and creamy silicon froth at a slower, shoulder-dropping pace unravelling over 7 minutes of dancefloor dreamstates. There's also a neat pair of Loops to get down, testing out dry drum machine functions in 'W' and mutant, alien grime in 'X'. Wicked gear.

Pure dread dub weight from Kaiju, steppin' up to Deep Medi after shots for Osiris and Ruffcut. A-side is swaggering halfstep standard with piping flutes and swinging nut-crack snares to leave you bruised and bowling. The ten minute B-side is the one for us; 'Creeper' eases off to come up darker, stronger with swollen subs and rufige breaks trimmed for that stepping-on-air dancefloor ballistics bound to trip some up, and launch others into orbit, moving thru multiple sections with visionary dancefloor arrangement.

'Antigravity' is a sui generis invocation of the rarest, compelling order coaxed from the French avant-garde by Blackest Ever Black. Around the locus of cult trumpeter Jac Berrocal - who famously appeared in the NWW list and collaborated with Steven Stapleton - David Fenech and Vincent Epplay unfold a deliciously psychedelic mystery steeped in the esoteric traditions of musique concrète, dub and jazz, and played with a DIY post-punk freedom.

Lil Silva cuts hard and wild on his 2015 shotta, 'Drumatic'. With the title track he forges a fresh sorta UK techno-bruk tribalism infected with buzzing grime bass and razor-cut breakbeat rattle, and 'New Squeeze' updates OG West London bruk funk with a tauter, gleaming techno edge, all percolating perfussion and melting chromatic chords. '606' clocks out with a pinging UK electro-funky zinger that could only come from this don. If his previous form is anything to go by, this may be your one and only 12" from Lil Silva this year, so make the most of it!

On remix duties, Auden opens up 'Falling Down' with electro breaks and sweeter pads around the central synth motif.

A brilliant expansion of the invaluable, cherry-picked expo of NYC's experimental Latin streak covering ground prior to the disco explosion. You should expect some incredible, definitive rhythm trips, with outstanding highlights in the likes of Ocho's far-out 'Tornado', replete with blustering intro; the hip-gripping battery of drums cycling thru tempo changes in Stone Alliance's 'Amigos'; the visionary fourteen minutes of modular synth and expansive electro-acoustic jazz scapes in Eddie Palmieri's 'Un Dia Bonita'; wayward fusion of folk and delicious dissonance in Grupo Folklorico Y Experimental Nuevayorquino's 'Anabacoa'.
