Cat. Number: IMPREC140DI

We're huge Oliveros followers here so it's just fantastic to see this classic album brought back to life by the ever-reliable Important Records. We're beginning to wonder just how the label has such a good line in to all these quality releases, but the less known about that the better, we're happy to carry on consuming week in, week out. 'Accordion & Voice' was the first of Pauline Oliveros's works as a soloist and was originally released back in 1982 when I was but a crawling nipper, although she had released a whole catalogue of electronic work she never recorded anything quit… Read more

Cat. Number: 3700551765980

Sick debut from 19 year old grime producer Shriekin, picked up by Local Action. A regular face at Slackk and co's influential Boxed events in London, Shriekin's riddims operate in that hi-def, cinematic space between Murlo and Slackk's fluid, chrome-warped constructions, showcasing an acute ear for melody and wickedly deft drum programming. From the quicksilver syncopations and airborne motifs of 'Cat's Eyes' to the hyper breakstep of 'Snowy Island Breaks', thru the glistening peaks of 'Steel Ships' and the kaleidoscopic radiance of 'Temple 2', it's fair to say we're listening to a massive talent coming to the fore.

Slickest jazz-fusion from Boxcutter mixing lush electronics, slow/fast rhythms and radiant instrumental arrangements. It's a sterling return to the jazz-wise textures and dexterity of his first coupla albums, 'Glyph' and 'Oneiric', recapturing that sense of celestial soul with the wide-open arrangement and dusted drumfunk syncopations of 'Retina Grains', and again with the nimble knit of sweeping Eastern strings, percolating Footwork funk and plangent electronic sound sphere of 'Travel By Dragonfly'.

'Fountain Transmitter Medications' is a timely reminder of Neil Campbell's utter psychedelic brilliance and enduring relevance. Still operating way out on his own, this album is the first we've heard of him for some time, and lands on the mind with a potent energy. There's over 100 minutes of completely freeform expression, ripping us through a series of spangled vortices from the lysergic chuggernaut, 'Infinity Thug' and frothing brain-scramble of 'Diamonds in the Deich' thru a series of 'Squeegee Anthems' culminating with the jaw-dropping vision of #3 which … Read more

Lil Silva reveals his tender underbelly alongside label-mate Banks in the romantic, modern blues of the 'Mabel' EP. Moving much closer to the sound of former collaborator Sampha, the London-based producer balances rhythmic weight with emotional impact in five tracks contrasting metallic halfstep and house flux with heart-swelling trance chords on 'First Mark' or naked, vaulted vocal harmonies in 'Kimmy' and its sister-piece, the bittersweet slide guitar-infused soul surge of 'Don't You Love' with Banks. The title track is best, suspending his vocals in the chromatic ether over a sumptuous, swing… Read more

“Colours Of The Night (Satellite)’ is Peter Broderick’s first song- based release in two years, during which the singer-songwriter- composer-multi-instrumentalist and serial collaborator was struck down by a debilitating illness that forced him to re- evaluate his life. Here, in his own words, is what Peter has to say about it: “Folks! I am very excited to announce a forthcoming EP on the Bella Union label. ‘Colours Of The Night (Satellite)’ is a preview of what’s to come on my next full-length album, due out next spring, simply called ‘Colours Of The Night’.

William Bennett reloads his battery of djembes, doundouns, ksing-ksing and synths for an outstanding 2nd album under the Cut Hands coat of arms. Unless you've entered your nuclear bunker way ahead of schedule, you can't fail to have noticed the clamour of attention around this project - from the delirious voodoo of 'Afro Noise I' to the incredibly compelling live-shows - and, if you're owt like us, you've probably played the records to death; so we'd imagine this album is already at the top of your wishlist.

Surely one of the most celebrated, provocative electronic projects of recent years, beloved of everyone from The Wire to Blackest Ever Black/Fact Mag's Kiran Sande and far beyond. Whitehouse's William Bennett indulges his passion for Congolese and Ghanaian percussion on a brilliant debut as Cut Hands. 'Afro Noise' is (surprisingly) relatively short on Noise, but heavy on the African rhythms which form the core of the majority of tracks. The drums are largely suffused and rendered with spacious, industrial-sounding reverbs but played with a polyrhythmic, African/Voodoo sleight of groove whic… Read more

"Adam Bainbridge returns, co-writing with Robyn, Kelela, Ghanaian rapper M.anifest and Devonté Hynes (Blood Orange et al), a long-time friend whose 2013 ’Cupid Deluxe’ included contributions from Bainbridge. ‘Otherness’ is Adam's vision, but it's a collective vision. On the album’s opening track, ‘World Restart’, Bainbridge’s vocals remain in the backing chorus. Kelela and Ade sing the lead parts. The song rides the sort of lithe and loose horns (by Finn Peters) you might hear on a Fela Kuti record, but they're tethered to a boogie bassline and Bainbridge's own rich percussive clatter…"

"Pan-Pot curate the 17th instalment of the ‘Watergate’ CD series. In 19 tracks they've compiled a mix of both new and exclusive material, as well as a couple of timeless collaborations that showcase their endemic sound whilst delivering the audience a taste of a night out at the club. The mix begins with the lush soundscape and spaced out aura of Pavel Petrov’s ‘Adapt’, which seems to be a perfect start. Immediately getting the listener cozy and engaged before shortly transitioning into the massive anthem of Radio Slave’s ‘Don’t Stop’, a telltale sign of the journey ahead.

Adam Marshall & Christian Anderson's Graze run a mutant breakbeat and techno sound on New Kanada. 'Coax' is a case of chuck it all in and see what happens - making winks to darkwave synth music, breakbeat rave and electro but never quite hitting any of them. 'Thundare' is better, finding its groove in rugged, swinging techno with an icy finish.
