Cat. Number: 1080P13

Ultra late night and streetlit collab from two of Portland’s key electronic reinterpreters. These 60 minutes and 18 tracks are all fully live, born out of a couple of sessions fueled by kush, coffee and tonnes of LaCroix pink grapefruit Soda Water. “Zirconia Reign” is an organic manifestation of imagery and psychic connection from their collective experiences living in Portland, working as civil servants for the more desolate and bleak suburban areas. Connecting the disparities between the urban/suburban divide in a place renowned as an “alt” mecca with a stack of synths, s… Read more

Various Production are back. A-side, they roll out the nocturnal neon streak of 'Rush' with it's nagging techno chords, floating vocal and swaggering slow/fast swerve primed for city cruises behind blacked-out windows. B-side is a sweeter, downbeat piece of modern urban folkpop - not a f**king banjo in sight - inspired by the Hungarian soundtracks of Panta Zorán and meditating on digital culture to a syrupy glisten of magenta chord vapours and husky soul croon in classic VP style.

"Having tantalised with ‘The Wheel’, ‘Bloodflows’ and ‘Lessons’, SOHN has added the final touches to his debut solo album, the anticipated ‘Tremors’. ‘Tremors’ is the way in which past traumas, as much as past successes, linger like the aftershocks of an earthquake. Even in the calmest moments its effects continue to reverberate and inform who we become. Throughout the eleven songs that form ‘Tremors’ runs a sense of the nocturnal - a sensitivity to the darkness and its inhibitions - with London-born SOHN adopting a night time schedule for an intense period of long nights writing and recording in hi… Read more

This first volume, Shower Scene, was inspired by the background music from 1970s TV shows - the frenetic solos, sleazy funk lines and jazz-influenced sounds that subtly lurk behind the tales of crime, drama and passion.

Ekman, aka Roel Dijcks, has been gaining some deserved attention with his terse brand of Electro.

Arctic blasts descend from the outset with his latest for Shipwrec. Frosted coils ensnaring clipped beats, roaming bass lines kept in check by tight drum patterns. Emotion is masked, feelings enveloped and embedded beneath those arrangements of aluminium and steel. Distress is never far from Ekman's work. The flipside jangles with fear and retributi… Read more
