Deep and dark acid techno bruisers by the Repitch Records boss for Holland's Mord label. Check out 'Irritating Collapse' for a proper acid bath, and 'Origin' for an in-the-thick-of-it 4am vibe. 'Discernment' is built to bring down warehouses, and 'Machine Elves' explores more esoteric ambient noise zones.
2hours, 30 minutes of floatation tank ambience by Stephan Laubner aka STL cloaked in his dark ambient guise.
"Between them, Terry Francis, Nathan Coles and Eddie Richards have been at the forefront of house music in the UK for over quarter of a century but together, under the Wiggle banner, the trio help pioneered the fusion of deeper house sounds and techno beats. To celebrate two decades of the label / party, the trio commissioned 20 brand new and exclusive tracks from recent Wiggle guests such as Alex Arnout, Saytek and Dachshund, as well as long-running Wiggle affiliates like Jay Tripwire, Gideon Jackson and Just Be (aka Bushwacka!) and mixed them together into 75 dynamic minutes."

"King Tuff’s ‘Black Moon Spell' was produced and recorded by Bobby Harlow at Studio B in Los Angeles, California, in the hot winter of 2014. There were many strange occurrences during the recording session - Dracula landlords, flashes of mysterious light, haunted microphones, songs that mixed themselves, demonic vortexes swirling in coffee cups, etc. Under the ‘Black Moon Spell’ you may experience euphoria, demented visions, wet dreams, bouts of backwards laughter, and dazed confusion resulting in primordial dancing. Los Angeles, full of its screaming coyotes and creeping helicopters,… Read more
"Through an increasingly idiosyncratic modern lens, Non Projects founder Brian Allen Simon continues to chase the notion of the sublime under the name Anenon. ‘Sagrada’, his sophomore album, documents the work of an artist who, since the release of his debut LP ‘Inner Hue’, has spent time traveling the world and playing music alongside many of today’s sonic luminaries.

Building on the light-step search for aural texture of his previous work, Brian bears a clearer voice throughout ‘Sagrada’ – the m… Read more
"With A Frozen Throne, Jasper Patterson, better known by his nom de plume Groundislava, has created an honest, and truly beautiful piece of work. Accompanying him on six of the LPs ten songs is Los Angeles singer / songwriter duo Rare Times, led by Anthony Calonico and Alex Talan, who co-wrote, produced and performed alongside Groundislava on A Frozen Throne. A Frozen Throne has found it's home, it's birth, in the twilight hour of humanity, that is itself on the cusp of evolution. An evolution into a greater consciousness. A technological reawakening, bound to change our minds and the… Read more
