CHARLES COHEN

A Retrospective

MORPHINE

Format_dot_cd2CD // £14.99

EARLY ELECTRONIC / SOUNDTRACKS

Cat. Number: DOSER024

**Double CD including all tracks from the vinyl editions + two previously unreleased recordings. Packaged in rigid double CD box with booklet** Morphine Records collate Charles Cohen's spellbinding recordings made a rare Buchla Music Easel modular synth circa 1976 - 1989 in this nigh-on essential retrospective. Equal parts electronic exploration, free-jazz and cosmic noise, Cohen's private body of work amassed over nearly two decades amounts to a deeply personal, vivid sketchbook of abstract ideas rendered in tangibly crisp yet elusively diffuse analogue vectors. For many, many years, fol… Read more

Night Slugs

Format_dot_vinyl10" // £6.99

GRIME / FWD

Cat. Number: NSWL018

**Special vinyl-only, chopped and screwed mix of Melba's Call featuring Kelela** Bok Bok gives a peek behind the Night Slugs curtain with two de-glazed deleted mixes of 'Melba's Call' with Kelela. It's both quite shocking and refreshing to hear such a naked, noisy production from the label and producer known for their clean contours and punchy production. Instead of the full version's HD funk, these mixes are scuffed and raw, full of biting Linn drums, tape hiss and body-wrench guitar twang decelerated to a quasi-speed crawl nodding equally to DJ Screw, Memphis hip hop and Oneohtrix Point Never's KGB Man tricks.

PETER ZUMMO FEAT. ARTHUR RUSSELL - Lateral Pass, Foom Music
Gpsh this one's a treat: Peter Zummo's beautiful 'Lateral Pass' (1985) suite starring Arthur Russell makes its first appearance on (180g) vinyl in its entirety! The practically symbiotic downtown duo of trombone player/composer Zummo and maverick cellist/singer Russell recorded the 23 minute piece along with Bill Ruyle (marimba and tabla), Guy Klucevsek (accordion), and Mustafa Ahmed (percussion and marimba) at the behest of the Trisha Brown Dance Company in september 1985, resulting in one of Zummo and Russell's most celebrated collaborations 'Song IV (Quintet)', which w… Read more

On this second album, husband-and-wife duo Mike Paradinas (μ-Ziq) and Lara Rix-Martin have honed their craft further and teamed up with French singer Vezelay for some supremely chill rides. The delicate synths and vocal harmonies, both positioned just so, can trace their origins to Paradinas's earlier milieu of 90s electronica, and even further back to 70s and 80s cosmicism, but they also resonate appealingly with contemporary moods in downtempo, such as those of Tory Y Moi or How To Dress Well. A work of calm and carefully engineered beauty.

Fade To Mind flounce back to the 'floor following Kelela's 'Cut 4 Me' mixtape with two ballroom bangers by Mike Q and DJ Sliink. Up top they juggle a choppy Miss Jay vocal into staccato stabs on a strobing, acidic synthline and all-important kick/clap syncopation to technoid, haughty effect. Downtown, 'Werk'd It' blazes a trail to the centre of the 'floor with tightly edited, almost minimalist drums and stabs laced with "pussy" and "work it" stabs to drive 'em wild. Use with caution.

For the 1st time, sibling labels Night Slugs and Fade 2 Mind join forces to present a reissue of DAT Oven's darkside tribal banger 'Icy Lake' (1998), backed with killer re-swerves by Total Freedom, L-Vis, and DJ Rashad & NA. The original was recently rediscovered by Fade 2 Mind's LA captain Total Freedom and could hardly be a better fit for current dancefloor aesthetics with its uncannily Eski-ish hook, welting drums and tracky Chicago stabs. Also factor in that plain weird answer phone message motif and you've got a straight ace, whatever the weather. Remixing, Night Slug L-Vis 1990 knocks the… Read more

The hottest gang in Glasgow bang the disco-not-disco drum on a killer 3rd 12" for Optimo Music. A potent brew steeped in cosmic, no wave and industrial disco skools, this is the leanest and most infectious set of Green Door Studio recordings to date from Cassie Ojay, Laurie Pitt, Oliver Pitt, and Richard McMaster aka Golden Teacher. The taut, bristling machine funk of their masterfully controlled A-side 'Love' comes off like Liasons Dangereuses meets Factory Floor in a Chicago darkroom, whereas they sound like LCD Soundsystem's badder, buckie'd-up cousins on 'Party People' and 'S… Read more

Three colourful cuts see him moving further away from the UK sound he's originally become known for and reinventing himself as a virtuoso of propelling house and romantic techno."

Sub-100bpm cosmic disco drug chug from Southern Italy via Glasgow with love. Michele Mininni's debut release yields four buoyant electronic grooves distilling elements of kraut, post rock, new wave and disco with a romantic vision of the dancefloor. 'Tupelo Love' is a sub 100bpm cosmic trancer while Telekomdisko raises the tempo and heads off into sun drenched space territory. The EP is completed by Michele's fellow countrymen, Boot & Tax's great acid inflected remix of 'Tupolev Love'.

Cat. Number: MNQ 050

Italy's excellent Mannequin Records charge up two electrifying coldwave/EBM studio demos by Musumeci recorded 1985, and now backed with a must-have Traxx edit of 'Tag Für Tag'. The demos take no prisoners, bowling between deranged yelps galvanised by lip-bitingly hard and brittle machine groove to a spikier, more melodic variant sparked with barking vox and fizzing electro-stepper pulses. Ask us though, we'll tell you Traxx's edit is the one; a driving EBM number shackled to toiling kick and detuned, sour synth motif prone to wickedly slip in-and-out of time. Tip!

"Secret Stash Records present the first ever reissue of this rare Nigerian funk gem from one of the most influential musicians in the genre. Co-produced by Uchenna Ikonne (Brand New Wayo, Who Is William Onyebar?), this reissue has been lovingly remastered and meticulously restored. In the early 1970s, Harry Mosco formed the now legendry funk-rock band, The Funkees. In search of greater opportunity and a wider audience, the group moved to London in 1973. Four years and two albums later they disbanded. Meanwhile, back in Nigeria, prominent businessman G.A.D. Tabansi was interested i… Read more

Miami's supermeng mixes beautifully scuplted bass drums with classical 808 hihats to shape this crazy sound on top of which he raps and sings in his very own interpretetation of Spanglish.

"Vaghe Stelle presents the 4th release of Shabu Recordings: 6520. This EP moves away from the dancefloor and explore new horizons, moving into the fine line between listening and experimental dancefloor-oriented music. While Notti Bianche clearly takes influences from the bass music scene and Vaghe Stelle’s usual melodic synth-fest universe, 6520, I Read it in my Eyes and The Platform take a more ambient course. This EP also includes remixes by Niccolò Bianchi, who takes 6520 on a darker approach while maintaining his shoegaze-ish sounds, and by BNJMN (Rush Hour/Stolen Kisses), who delivers a more Techno take on 6520, in the spirit of his previous releases."

Fresh from the Punch Drunk crew, the Idle Hands imprint delivers undercover operations from one of Bristol's finest on the label's debut release. The A-side rolls out the heavy dub-swingers vibe in brilliant style, laying pressure on techno-steppers subs and Berlin-influenced chords set at strolling tempo somewhere between techno and dubstep. On the flipside, the unnamed producer takes a different route to the dancefloor with a killer future-dub aesthetic. A tightly chopped and looped reggae-guitar is sequenced into hypnotic techno patterns over luscious subbass and pen-on-glass percussion for o… Read more
