**Invaluable survey of early and pioneering Belgian post-punk group who would fill roles in Snowy Red, Fad Gadget, The Weathermen…** "Prior to forming Digital Dance in Brussels, in the summer of 1978, Jerry WX (voicen guitar) and Stephan Barbery (guitar) were closely involved in the local punk scene. Jerry WX played with Chainsaw, the very first Brussels punk band in 1976, and a year later with X-Pulsion. Stephan Barbery played with Thrills from 1977 to 1978. During this period X-Pulsion, Thrills and a third band called Streets played many gigs together, often swapping instruments and … Read more

14 TRACKS COMPILATIONS

Cat. Number: bundle_315

In 2014 the ambient/electronica zeitgeist can be read as an impressionistic projection of our dreams inspired by current technologies and past memories. From T C F's mind-blowing work focussed on block chain encryption (the algorithms that run BitCoin), thru Lee Gamble's rave sublimations, to the hyper-coloured synthetic tone of 12 year old Henry Plotnick and computer games soundtrack designer, David Kanaga, we can hear a schism opening between the previous era of composition and those lush new 3D spaces favouring stranger, alien discord over staid convention.

TECHNO / HOUSE

Cat. Number: TTT028

Peverelist meets Andy Mac as Zennor with three deeper UK house trax, new on TTT. 'Never In Doubt' is the straight-playing A-side pushing plump kicks and jiggy hi-hats with blue bassline and chord washes to subtly insistent impact. B-side, 'Storms' brings a more rugged take on NYC garage house and Teutonic mnmlsm with haughty bass heft and dancing synth motifs nodding Ben Cenac and STL, leaving 'Tin' on some halfstepping R&Bizzle.

TECHNO / HOUSE

Cat. Number: HES027

Bruce rolls off an ace 12" for Livity Sound into a trio of murky, mongrel techno trax for Hessle Audio. The lop-sided wamp of 'Not Stochastic' is a refreshing, exemplary take on the noisy, abstract techno nexus; yoking minimal, thrumming techno from the brink of psychedelic chaos to tensely gritted effect. By turns, 'Trip' takes the opportunity to investigate niche ambient zones between Burial, Inga Copeland and Dynamo, before 'My Legs Wouldn't Go Quick Enough' delivers a sort of dream-state return to the dancefloor with tetchy drums and morphing atmospheric pressure. It's a bewt. Tip!

Oren Ambarchi caps a vintage and truly prolific year of releases with the pulsing, searching, 5-part narrative of 'Quixotism'. Underpinned by the pulsing truth of Thomas Brinkmann's computable drums, the session unfolds with a preternaturally hypnotic logic, consolidating a wealth of contributions from the likes of regular collaborators Jim O'Rourke (synth), Crys Cole (contact mics, brushes), Eyvind Kang (bowed gender & violas) and John Tilbury (piano) with new input from U-zhaan (tabla) and the Icelandic Symphony Orchestra, plus co-production and engineering by Randall Dunn at Avast, Seattle.… Read more

**Hand-stamped, individually numbered edition of 300 housed in debossed PVC sleeve** Traag follows his alter ego Siobhan's 'Southgate' LP for Opal Tapes with a raw, sleazy session for Italy's Gang Of Ducks. Punkishly cocked with drawling vocals and greased up with slow, kinky boogie and electro rhythms, it lands somewhere between '20 Jazz Funk Greats'-era TG and the snottier No Wave styles of Dracula Lewis or $hit & $hine, at best in the loping, reverse edit loops and snivelly delivery of 'Win The Lotto', the mutant disco propulsions of 'Mr. Alan', 'Rubber Doll' and 'Stray Dog', or the coiled electro slither of 'Tropical Fruit'.

TECHNO / HOUSE

Cat. Number: HOTSHIT013

Skewed and scuffed garage trax from Marco Zanin aka DJ Octopus and half of Venetian duo, Die Roh. His 3rd 12", following releases for Enlightened Wax and Chiwax, comes with a pendulous, rugged reminding of John Swing or Battista in the gritty groove of 'Smack My Pitch Up' whilst 'Cycling' serves a tape-saturated sort of bumpty garage-house. Better yet, the B-side lays out a killer fusion of technoid snares (snatched off Dimi Angelis & Jeroen Search's 'Jupiter'?) and heavy house bass with that classic "Love Fantaseee" sample, and 'A Day At The Lake With Carlos' simmers down to a blue strain of mid-tempo garage.

Tri Angle Records

Format_dot_cdCD // £7.99

ELECTRONIC

Cat. Number: TRIANGLE27CD

One of Bristol's most interesting artists returns with an ace, oddly organic 2nd album for Tri Angle. 'Punish Honey' cements Vessel's unique position in modern electronica, not least as the first artist bestowed the honour of a 2nd full length on Tri Angle, but also due to his kink for a queered, oxidised alloy of organic and electronic tone, texture and timbre. In it, he uses electro-acoustic/concrète techniques and process to embody a unique voice and character, rather than towards any academic purposes. Employing sheet metal as percussion and sawn-off bicycles as flutes, he arrives at a roiling… Read more

Lukid joins the Lib Tech gang with his first release in nearly two years. A producer's producer and a perennial outsider persistently mutating styles in the cracks of current techno, electronica and bass music, Lukid still evades any net we might chuck at him with 'Crawlers'. The A-side opener, 'Nine' may well be known to you for it's brittle, anguished lead motif which was snatched by Evian Christ for his 'Propeller' on the 'Waterfall' EP. Here it sounds more sombre and petrified, shaken up with rasping drums and bass beside the strobing spectres of 'La Cucaracha'. B-side, he thwacks off angular, fl… Read more

TECHNO / HOUSE

Cat. Number: RHM013

Stellar 2nd album of Detroit techno sci-fi from Terrence Dixon's Population One avatar. Arriving a mere 20 years since his Population One debut, 'Unknown Black Shapes' - whose 1995 follow-up EP, 'Hippnotic Culture' coincidentally inspired Rush Hour's moniker - we're made privy to Dixon's most intimate, noirish portrayal of a 313 psyche in eight tracks traversing hi-tech jazz and cryptic electro along mesmerising minimalist patterns. It's a proper Afro-futurist document, taking flight from desolate 313 interzones with the introspective opener 'Out Of Control'. propelled via … Read more

Man like Stephan Laubner aka STL on three extended, deep and abstract house trips for his Something label. A-side is home to a 14 minute slow burner with signature pitching chords, effervescent keys and nudging bass bumps seemingly working out some cryptic conundrum in their shifty syncopations. B-side brings a straighter groove with the slompy jack and melancholic strings of 'Timeblind', plus the mystic wiggle of 'Locked Area' and a locked groove.

Each track here feels almost torn between two worlds, from the leaden throb and flighty, frantic Manga samples of 'Coil' thru the crushed groove and sparkling electronic dimensions of 'Berth' to the strange schism of mechanical bird noise and pounding techno in 'Merge' and the spatialized ambient trickery of closer, 'Azure'.
