*This CD version contains different audio to teh Vinyl edition* The venerable Yasunao Tone leaves the skipping CDs aside to work with disrupted MP3 files on this visceral new work for Editions Mego. As an original member of Japan's Fluxus movement and the legendary Group Ongaku, besides more recent collaborations with Florian Hecker and Christian Marclay, Tone has spent a lifetime operating at the vanguard of experimental art and music, and it's fitting that he has now moved on from manipulating prepared CDs to dissecting and using corrupted MP3 files in his latest composition.

Following last year's devasting UL8 set, Mark Fell returns to Editions Mego for a 2x12" excursion into advanced rhythm mechanics. Back in January 2011, the SND man was invited by Erik 'Errorsmith' Wiegand to create some presets for the Native Instruments soft-synth he was building. In the end, NI rejected Fell's sounds, but their loss is our gain: he's further developed the pattern-Generating systems he used for UL8 and connected them to sounds produced in Wiegand's synthesizer with a result so tantalising you're almost reminded of Wiegand's own classic MMM production 'Donna'. Fell is just a… Read more

Cat. Number: eMEGO180

Florian Hecker's latest major work for Editions Mego investigates the serrated schism of nature and culture through a further focus on the unique timbral properties of the voice and our perceptions of language. "Articulação deepens Hecker’s collaboration with Reza Negarestani, author of the libretto created for Hinge . In two distinct renderings this piece articulates a complex scene in which the two obelisks of the script - one from the perspective of nature and one from the perspective of culture - are recited simultaneously in an informational yet dramatic style. Hinge* features the legendary art… Read more

Ex-Harry Pussy guitarist Bill Orcutt's 2009 side 'A New Way To Pay Old Debts' was an instant classic for those attuned to his brand of stomach-scrapingly raw, hoary blues improvisation. Few could have expected the album to be subsequently issued on CD by Editions Mego, but the more you thought about it the more it made sense - though all-acoustic, Orcutt's music is every bit as extreme, violent and threshold-testing as that of, say, Florian Hecker, Russell Haswell or Mika Vainio. As if to prove it wasn't a token gesture towards eclecticism, Mego boss Peter Rehberg has signed a bra… Read more

Cat. Number: eMEGO164

Whoa, even by EVOL's usual standards this is a weird and wired experiment in sonic slime-slinging, mastered by Russell Haswell and cut by Rashad Becker at D&M. For the best part of three years Stephen Sharp and Roc Jiménez de Cisneros have been desconstructing rave music in novel and unorthodox ways, homing in on bizarre tropes in the music that we've glibly come to accept as generic, disrupting its regular patterns, drawing attention to its kinks and fissures, and generally f**king with our heads: a process they formally describe as Rave Synthesis. The music of Proper Headshrinker was origi… Read more

Preternaturally gifted Korean cellist Okkyung Lee emerged as a peerless force within extreme music during the '00s via shocking releases on Ectsatic Peace! and Tzadik and performances alongside everyone from Laurie Anderson to david Behrman and Evan Parker. She commits one of her most striking issues to date for Stephen O'Malley's impeccable Ideologic Organ. 'Ghil' was recorded and produced by Lasse Marhaug, who purposefully used a crappy old 1976 tape recorder and crude microphone placement rather than hi-end studio equipment to capture the raw intensity of Okkyung's combustible expressions.

VARIOUS / SUB ROSA - An anthology of noise and electronic music (Vol. 4), Sub Rosa
Each compilation in this excellent series so far has proved an essential primer, and this fourth offering shows no signs of letting up on either substance or quality. The compilation begins with something rather special indeed, and for someone like me who is pretty obsessed with electronic music history - it's about as indispensable as it gets. The track is by Egyptian artist Halim el-Dabh (don't worry, I haven't heard of him either) and was discovered by the Sub Rosa gang hidden in a French magazine article. Of course as you've probably guessed … Read more

**Digital Edition includes a bonus 17 minute track** 'Hecker Leckey Sound Voice Chimera' presents a radical mashup of works by two probing, multidisciplinary artists among the most vital of their generation. First realised as part of a two day performance at Tate Modern called 'Push and Pull', it offers a mutant configuration of Leckey's vocal track from 'GreenScreenRefrigeratorAction' (the eerie inner monologue of a Samsung fridge, as heard on the B-side of his 'Fiorucci Made Me Hardcore' vinyl and viewable on youtube), scrambled, decomposed and modu… Read more
