Seattle's Further Records project deep inwards/outwards with the psychedelic kosmiche of 'Dose' by label co-owner, Raica. In sharp contrast to the muddied fidelity of 'Lucent Glances' - the last we heard from her - Chloe Harris aka Raica delivers eight compositions of piquant, pineal clarity and vision, creaming glassy harmonics in 'Satmor' alongside the widescreen panorama of 'Tiwie', crisply scrambled rhythms in 'Slep_Non', and tangles modular streaks of 'Watr Drgn'. Better yet, the caoptivating 'Couchfire Dron' enters Autechrian hyperspace and 'Harchone' glistens with Heinrich Mueller-esque finish… Read more

**Flac format for this release contains 24bit 44.1KHz audio** Deep house savant and pioneer Theo Parrish serves one of his's most eagerly awaited, not to mention controversial, albums with 'American Intelligence'. Featuring more tracks than the vinyl, 15 cuts as opposed to 9, you definitely get more Parrish to the pound here, but scandals about pricing aside, we really shouldn't be focussing on the bloody price tag. As expected, it's a sterling session, unfurling inimitable (no matter how much everyone tries) grooves tangling signature drum calculations and lissom keys with s… Read more

Oake really find their gothic muse in debut album, 'Auferstehung' for Downwards. Firmly building on the foundations of two shadowy 12"s released in 2013, the duo distill and transcend their influences across eleven stations of unrepentant gothic histrionics and industrial techno prostration. The production is now right up there with the detailed, excoriating levels of The Haxan Cloak, and also matching the rhythmic heft of label-mate Samuel Kerridge (with whom they recently formed the UF collusion), but with a kohl-eyed romanticism all of their own creation. From the swooning black metal/shoeg… Read more

Hailed as "one of the top 5 best users of a 303 of all time" by JD Twitch (Optimo), Maron defined The Sound of Belgium circa '87-'90 with a string of then-unprecedented productions spinning elements of Chicago House, EBM and Freestyle Electro with a glammed-up Belgalo swagger and fizzy, melodic mentalism that remedied the relative cheese of prolific New Beat production team, Morton Sherman Bellucci, for example. After pop success in the mid '80s with 2… Read more

Crafted in conjunction with psychedelic supremo Pete Kember (Spacemen 3 etc), it professes a mixture of loping drums influenced by the '90s hip hop of ATCQ and Pete Rock, coupled with a colourful instrumental/hardware palette of synths, guitars and vocals, rather than the sampling methods employed in his seminal, signature side, 'Person Pitch' (2007).

Her 'Phantom Delia' EP pits years of experience DJing on the radio and at her residency for free-spirited Düsseldorf nightspot, Salon Des Amateurs, together with a rarified knowledge of classic wave musics, outernational rhythms and weirdo techno. The result: a delicately patterned, phantasmic meld of styles; slipping gears between the furtive, droning EBM of 'Howlin Lupus' to the poised Dominatrix ambience of 'Nilpferd' (mistress, do that… Read more

STL crosses paths with Echocord again in the low-slung house skanks of the 'Dubs Etched Into Relief' EP. As any dub house connoisseur knows, it's a fine line between bland imitation and watermarked subtlety in this field. We'd easily place his two original tracks in the latter category, from the slow but nimble nudge and silty background atmospheres of 'Dub's End' to the reflective, blue shade of his gauzy strings, keys and disembodied voices in 'The Dark Future'. B-side, Grad-U bolsters 'Dub's End' with a more driving momentum set out for late night floorplay.

Sweetest first taste of the new album by Johan Agebjörn aka Sally Shapiro's producer, featuring dreamy coos from the lady herself. The graceful piano pirouettes and breathy synths of 'The Boy Who Thought It Was A Good Idea To Cry' could easily be mistaken for a Jon Brooks production until Ms Shapiro's dry-iced glide hints at its more northerly provenance. There's also a beautiful acoustic version full of slipping pitches and romantic, moonlit space to wander and wonder.

Coming off like a lo-fi Autechre meets Chain Reaction, '/\\05' deals in fractured steppers momentum and abstract dub structures, sucking us in with the flux of acousmatic source material, strobing dub rhythms and coruscating noise in '01' before winding up the tightly coiled, double-time flex of highlight, '02'. Deeper in, '03' fires a lip-bitingly ace round of skittish steppers drums reminding of that Skee Mask 12" trapped in a hall… Read more

Seven years since his last appearance, a cover of DM's 'Personal Jesus', he still sports a sharp, supple electro sound gilded with signature sci-fi synth arrangements owing to early Autechre or AFX and classic Drexciya. If we're talking highlights, make sure to check the cyan slowburn and trim rhythms of 'Neon Future Blue', the crepuscular electro glow of 'Haether', and the intricate projections of closing couplet, 'Reflect The Future' and 'Future World'. Good stuff.
