**Sterling dark pop and stark ambient noise somewhere between Grouper and Vatican Shadow. Edition of 500 with tracing paper insert and download code** There's some genuinely dark magick at work in Paper Dollhouse's debut LP for Glasgow's Night School Records. The London-based duo of Nina Bosnic and Astrud Steehouder are in possession/possessed by a gothic, oneiric spirit which has previously been revealed on Jane Weaver's Bird Records - who also present a cassette version of this LP - and alongside Magpahi for Devon Folklore Tapes Vol. IV.

Cat. Number: SMG003

Killah consolidation of drone, techno and D&B from the Ruffhouse trio on their debut Samurai mission. A-side, the 18-wheel juggernaut 'Straight 9's' rolls with shuddering sub pressure and restrained, serpentine hi-hats wrapped to a super dense drone. B-side, oh my fxxking days! 'UVB-76' comes with a military-grade warehouse hard-step that makes up for all that went wrong with D&B post '98. Strongly recommended to those that know.

This is pretty special: an album of unreleased home recordings made circa 1982-83 by Liquid Liquid percussionist Dennis Young - aye, the same fella sampled on Grandmaster Flash's 'White Lines'. Edited and arranged in summer 2014, it illuminates 16 pieces primed for the heads and DJs, ranging from dubbed-up, extended No wave disco roll-outs, thru singeing synth escapades equally comparable with Craig Leon and Bruce Lacey, via a number of little guitar ditties and experiments. It's perfectly symptomatic of that febrile air of creativity surrounding New York in that era, keen to expand the pe… Read more

An aural missing link that provides a thrilling insight into the sonic jump Dilla made from his early work as part of Slum Village and production whizz for A Tribe Called Quest, Common, The Pharcyde and De La Soul, over to the experimental and technically intense oeuvre which marked his collaborative venture with Madlib.

Both sides ooze slinky finesse: 'Visio' very gently unfold a writhing, subby square bass beneath waves of trickling, starlit synths to sound like a slower relation of Convextion; 'Ruski' carries on the vibe with a dash more psychedelic energy in its lathered electronics and delicately insistent drum arrangements.

Stellar techno-boogie from new and promising name, Creta Kano for Bristol's Happy Skull. A lush and insistent lather of Detroit techno and UK braindance filtered with misty-eyed effect, 'Skyway Motel' yields some of the sweetest 'floor moves of 2015 so far. The title track nails E.R.P.-style emosh electro-funk with tantalising marimba melody and sublime chord progressions on the A-side, while the faded breakbeat beauty, 'False Water' shyly skips and melts away like one of AFX's recovered demos on the B-side next to the collapsed boogie screw of 'Skyway 81'. It's hard to resist kind of these charms.
