Industrialized D&B from Finland's Lightless boss, Fanu. Frontside fires up the spot-welded metallic drums and haunted atmospheres of 'Paracosm' for the heavy steppers; flipside leans in with pendulous subs and skittish tribal drums accentuated with wailing vocal for mystic effect.

‘Ices’ is a celebration of flight, levity and the conviction that you can leave Earth. You take wing in an aeroplane, you go to real places when you dream, you have out-of- body experiences, you get high, you lose yourself in someone else. In Lia’s own words: “This recording session became a two year music and spiritual retreat with my psychic twin brother, Eliot. A private journey during which we abandoned old habits and familiar sounds. We got really geeky and experimented in our studio. We obsessed over sympathetic magic, ‘Ancient Aliens’, and the NBA. We allowed everything we loved to find i… Read more

Tracky house and sensuous, technoid boogie from Todd Osborn. Returning to Running Back after 'T-Rhythm Trax Volume 1', Ann Arbor's finest nods to Running Back's 'hood with the driving EBM momentum of 'Put Your Weight On It (Frankfurt Mix)', and a kinkier Chicago Mix that was recently picked by Erol Alkan for inclusion on his Fabric 77 mix. On a slower flex, 'Medium' brings some slickly hypnotic boogie swerve, and 'Market' makes nice with stellar Detroit house vibes.

The originals carve between sodden, gritty techno a la Happa or Blawan in 'Bugz' to low-riding, blown out electro with New York swagger on 'The Prick'. Alex Coulton's remix blows both of 'em out the water, resetting 'Bugz' to a Mala or Kode 9-esque dubstep lean swarmed with a menagerie of bleeps and dread gremlins and dubbled-up Footwork drums.

To the side of the same pastures as Bibio or the Border Community lot, Photay operates in a colourful little world of its own with a six track suite of keening harmonics and crushed grooves owing to boogie hip hop and IDM, at best in the salty soul bump of 'Reconstruct' featuring celestial vocal by Seafloor, or in the grinning jazz-funk queso of 'These Fruits, These Vegetables', and the Afro-centric wobble and shuffle of 'Illusion Of Seclusion'.

Recorded in a single week with one day devoted to each track, 'Trance Mutation' gently spirals with a meditative introspection, using the sparest guitar, electric piano and rippling percussion run through a matrix of liv… Read more
