Blue Twelve

Blue Tapes and X-Ray Records

Format_dot_vinylLP // £16.99

FOLK / ROOTS

Cat. Number: XRAY001

*Clear Vinyl* It's 2015 and the guitar as an instrument is pretty f**king exhausted, right? Not in Tashi Dorji's hands. This album was first issued on cassette by Blue Tapes in 2014, just prior to the amazing compilation of his earlier gear on Ben Chasny ov Six Organs… Hermit Hut label and serves to illustrate our point above - where so many guitarists are happy to tread old ground and pay dues to heroes, Bhutanese maverick Dorji is spiralling away, expressing untapped thoughts and feelings on his very own plane, making his guitar sound something like a modular synth system playing ancient … Read more

INDIE / ALTERNATIVE

Cat. Number: EPR018LP

**Includes download code redeemable from the label** III originally came out in February 2013, IIII in February 2014. Papir from Copenhagen, Denmark have gradually developed their unique vision of instrumental psychedelic rock over the course of four albums. The band manages to transform heavy, psychedelic music into something new and relevant, something truly unique. Sure, Papir knows their kraut- and progrock history, but unlike the majority of bands in the present day psych-rock scene they venture far beyond mere pastiche. Guitarist Nicklas Sørensen and Bassist Christian Becher aren't afraid to e… Read more

Mile End EP (w/ Hodge Mix)

Project 13

Format_dot_vinyl12" // £6.99

TECHNO / HOUSE

Cat. Number: P13002

MCR's burgeoning P13 label/clubnight measures out three killer lines of mutant UK techno from Divided backed with a heavy rolling Hodge remix. While best known for his 4/4 bangers on Fifth Wall and Resin, this 12" reveals an experimental streak to be explored over forthcoming sessions with the forward-looking Project 13. A-side, 'Uildi' sparks up like a melted Sleeparchive with bleeps and bass falling off the grid in swanging syncopation whereas 'Merhige' tests out a drier reduction of dusty bass and agile drums recalling label-mate Acre. B-side, he gets much looser with 'Mile End' t… Read more

Mush

Format_dot_vinylLP // £15.99

ELECTRONIC

Cat. Number: MH294LP

"Scattered Into Light is the Mush debut from the Luxembourg based electronic act, Sun Glitters. The eleven-track album remains true to the glitchy r&b and deep tech-house sound that has blasted Sun Glitters into the consciousness of electronic music fans over the last two years. Stuttering beats and wobbling synths are soft-focused through a sun-bleached lens in a way that will appeal to synth-pop, ambient, and dustup fans in equal measure. Scattered Into Light is the first Sun Glitters release to completely integrate a vocalist, as Italian ingenue Sara Cappai lends her talents to … Read more

Format_dot_cdCD // £13.99

MODERN CLASSICAL / AMBIENT

Cat. Number: RN159CD

Alva Noto beautifully exchanges austerity for cinematographic lushness with the remarkably widescreen 3rd volume in his 'Xerrox' series. Inspired by private, formative influences such as 'La Isla Misteriosa y el Capitán' - based on Jules Verne's 'The Mysterious Island' - and Tarvosky's screen adaptation of 'Solaris', he uses the self-designed Xerrox software to transpose early, ingenuous feelings of awe and wonder into innovative, intimate atmospheres and dynamic soundscapes. In keeping with the series' focus on "using the process of copying as a basis", and the manner in which the inherent inf… Read more

Cat. Number: NMBRS36

**Hand-stamped white label** Kev Gorman a.k.a. Adesse Versions strikes on Numbers with the massive 'Pride', a.k.a that tune everyone has been asking Jackmaster about. The scheme is straight, simple and deadly effective: blazing vocal + slinky house groove = big tune! The original unfolds across the A-side, backed with the cockle-warming Larry Heard vibes of 'First Time' on the B-side, plus a 'Pride Dub' for the DJs who want to extend the groove.

PERTH DRUG LEGEND - Clubbers Guide to Craigie, Resin

Arching up with the Happa-like soggy slam of 'Hillend Hyper Squad' the session twists down darker, abstract alleys with the emulsified throb of 'God Save Queen Jean', and even more whacked out with the glue-huffers anthem 'Tweet Tweet Mill Street Fleet', before checking out with tortuous minimalism of 'South Inch Posso'.

RIYL The New Blockaders, MB, NWW, H3O** Giancarlo Toniutti's 'La Mutazione' is a heavy weathered landmark at the crossroads of avant-garde concrète and ambient industrial music. It first seeped into the underground water table by way of Gary Mundy's legendary Broken Flag label in 1985, to become regarded as one of the era's most subtly unsettling examples of post-industrial music.

Months have been spent carefully mixing the album down again, re-engineering and re-mastering to capture "the vision we felt was absent in the original. With the use of current technologies we were able to bring out a hidden sonic dimension though the use of three dimensional processing and 7.1 surround mixing, this album has never sounded so good. Re-packaged in a retro matte finished digipak, shrink wrapped and housed in a japanese imported mini lp sleeve with a poster."

Cat. Number: CR1282

Atlantic-facing techno killer backed with a deeply driven Legowelt remix. Portugal's Lake Haze and IVVVO make a potent pairing on the front with a bareback jacker built from salty 909 and stormy synth arrangement spilling over a sense of dancefloor drama. B-side, Legowelt picks and runs with that vibe, filling in the space with patented kick drum welt and expanded, unfolding arrangement weaving yoghurt and sand like some Atlantean psy-trance anthem.
