Tense, bristling electronica outta Ukraine: "Volya means freedom. Inspired by Ukrainian winter revolution, it’s blood and fire. Metal rhythms from the riot streets, the sound of burned police cars, gas grenades explosions and the molotov cocktail symphony. The liberty napalm of transformation. Dedicated to Ukraine."

Cat. Number: TCLRDNL007

BNJMN nails a darker, heavier sound on his first 12" for Technicolour. On 'Tonight' he teases a snatch of This Mortal Coil's 'Song To The Siren' over strobing chords and submerged 4/4 welt to come off like The Field's up-for-it alter ego. Flipside, 'Arc' hews closer to that psycho-acoustically attuned techno sound also done by Actress and Lee Gamble, and 'IV' gets under the skin with opiated Eastern string samples rolled in murky EBM/house rhythm to gloomy effect.

"Mirage is the project of Robin Nydal, a 19-year old Los Angeles native who began putting his recordings on Bandcamp earlier this year. "Blood For The Return" is the first collection of his songs. He's been labelled as a "soft-prog impresario" for the scrappy yet highly intricate compositions that weave between solo recordings and collaborations with guest musicians. The instrumentation sidesteps that of the traditional guitar/bass/drums rock band and includes piano, cello, viola, violin, oboe, and timpanis. Ari Balouzian's lush arrangements of these orchestral e… Read more

Annie & Richard X's 'A&R' EP is a pop-perfect shot of '90s Euro and Acid House pastiche. Apparently inspired by the 'Deep Heat' series - Telstar's dance music compilations charting the explosion of electronic dance music in the UK between 1988 - 1993 - über-producer X and his Scando siren hit the vibe dead on with belly-tingling melodies, breathy vocals and sumptuous grooves appropriating the best hip-house, acid and 1990 breakbeats. There's no need to go on; it's a no brainer!

21-track Reissue of Drexciya's first album proper and a milestone for Detroit and electronic music in general. It was first released in 1999 and has since been hailed as one of the enigma's most crucial missives. Opinions will differ, but this CD version is arguably the definitive edition, containing 21 tracks to the LP's 13, and a discernibly lucid digital mastering compared with relatively smudged frequencies on the 2LP vinyl. To put it simply, and without overstatement: this is one of the finest electronic albums ever made.

**Gatefold jacket with a free download of the album** Werk Discs' new MVP, Moiré, patterns a unique fusion of leftfield House and Techno with debut album, 'Shelter'. Rooted in wayward modern funk, and brimming with emotive chicanery, 'Shelter' is a thoroughly considered, robust LP statement that stands out from the current crowd. Sounding out somewhere between Carl Craig's erogenous house and the psychedelic zones of Actress, it occupies an unstable, shifty mid-ground, in flux between tiered layers of classic analogue synths, tape machines and drum computers (check his feature on Fact magazine for… Read more

Daz Quayle and Tony 'Bone' Snowden flex powerful rhythmic noise muscle on their debut as Broken Bone. Informed by the 20th century atrocities at infamous NYC institution, 'Willowbrook', the duo present six tracks of atonal, visceral noise textures hingeing on bruising bass and charred drums. It's a fxxking fearsome effort, amping a handful of well-selected elements to bleeding point. A-side draws us in with squealing tones and febrile, spitting drums laced with swarming crowd noise, before 'Sub Clinical' and 'Blood On Your Hands' put the boot in with crushing hip hop rhythms and viciousl… Read more

It makes for a super-cohesive and distinguished selection, introducing the likes of Ryan James Ford with the pensive build of 'Arthure Iccon' and maintaining a slick tension and momentum throughout the mix from Terence Fixmer's creepy 'Inside Of Me' thru Dario Zenker's exclusive roller 'Nearlin', and Rob Hood's Monobox classic 'Film'… Read more

Fugged-up, emotive electronica from Jimmy Billingham's Holovr alias, returning to Opal Tapes with his first vinyl release. 'Holo Earth' follows the scuzzy sci-fi themes of 'Lunar Lake' with a spirited collection of droning pads, murdered jungle and cracked techno nodding to early Autechre, no wave electronics and dark ambient musics. We can hear contemporary parallels in certain sectors of the Bristol sound between Young Echo and No Corner, but it's all much more blown out and degraded, even ambiguous, strung between celestial new age dreaminess, rugged rhythms and morphing patina of hiss and… Read more

Lil Jabba brings different, trippy styles to the fore on his keenly awaited follow-up to the 'Scales' album for Local Action. On 'Gully' for True Patnther, the Brooklyn-based producer adds potent traces of techno, trap, and jungle to his Footworking frameworks in six parts covering a broader range of tempos and moods. We can think of few producers in this field who apply such a painterly sensibility to their work, from the fluid darkside strokes, sprayed beats and pointillist melody of 'GRoTTo Anthem' to the hyper-detailed, lucid nightmare vision of 'FLeXIN.
