ROLLO JACKSON - Tape Crackers: An Oral History of Jungle Pirate Radio, ROLLO JACKSON
*'Tape Crackers' is a vital documentary focussed on one guy, Michael Finch, and his amazing tape collection of pirate radio recordings made in the mid-late '90s. The premise is basic: place Michael and some of his most prized c90s in front of the camera and let the man talk. The result: a punters'-ear recollection of an amazing period in UK music culture, charting the shifts between Happy Hardcore/Jungle/D&B/Garage, or what has contentiously become known as the 'Hardcore Continuum' thanks to Simon Reynolds. Michael is a passionate and thoroughly endea… Read more

ELECTRONIC

Cat. Number: REC20

Visceral, lysgeric psych-noise from Street Thunder on his return to Reckno following the 'Bonfire Gecko Hex' tape. In comparison to the sanguine kosmiche of their previous, 'Galaxies' is more expansive, ripping at the edges with incendiary, kaotic noise harmonics in four parts scoping out the cascading tone clusters of 'Meteor Shower' alongside the shoegaze wrench of 'Universe End' and the overheating circuitry of 'Cosmic Residue'. But most impressive is the two-part 20 minute epic, 'Star Collapse / Venusian Naturism' which builds and roils to a deliriously unhinged swarm of bittersweet discord that you could practically swim in.

"The Katalyst Sessions define the Uncomfortable Beats vision for Hip-Hop instrumentalism, and presents an artist whose production exemplifies the future beats movement. Between 2010-2013, Wermonster embarked on an exploration into experimental beats in his Berlin studio, and Katalyst Sessions Vol.1 is a result of the choicest cuts. Each of the 28 tracks and skits on this fast-paced journey are short and hit solidly on point with no redundancy. Wermonster manages to successfully traverse the fragile line of staying true to classic 90's boom-bap, whilst generating questions and providing answers as to what the future holds for Hip-Hop instrumentalism."
