Cat. Number: EXIT021

Code 3 are a new addition to the Exit roster, dropping two tracks of darker techy D'n'B science. 'Living Proof' is all about undulating walls of dread subbass pressure harnessed by stepping snare placements and sparse, ghostly atmospheres. 'Response Call' ups the energy levels with a tuff percussive workout, shifting rhythmic gears with an expert touch reminiscent of more restrained Tech-itch productions with powerful subbass swells to boot. Heavyweight DJ tools for fans of D-Bridge, Rockwell and co. Ace.

Paying off on the promise of the 'Distance' 10", (which was picked up by everyone from Kode 9 to Fly Lo) Computer Jay packs off 'Maintain' backed with remixes from Falty DL, Ikonika and Mike Slottt. The dizzying original took us about three plays to find the right tempo, but once we found its vocoder-boogie groove it sticks in the head like a government-planted microchip. Falty DL only enhances the what-speed? effect with his hyper-garage mix, spiralling the vocal and melody along the scale until it's almost uncomfortable but just about maintaining the funk.… Read more

Making a smart move to Honest Jon's, Actress offers his first brand new material (discounting remixes) since his landmark 'Hazyville' album dropped in 2008. The move signifies a subtle but essential development in his sound, preparing the ground for a hugely promising album with two mindblowing tracks. 'Paint, Straw And Bubbles' seemingly untethers his Detroit dream from terra firma, percolating his ethereal sound through a system of camouflaging filters until the joins dissolve and we're left with a remarkable feat of intangible spatial dynamics viewed with an i… Read more

Autechre reach the tenth album milestone with 'Oversteps' released via Warp Records. In comparison to 'Quaristice', which was allegedly constructed largely from edits of extended live sequences, this album reverts to the more traditional Ae method of dense and intricate studio composition, constructed between home setups in London and Manchester. 'Oversteps' has been hailed as one of their most approachable albums to date, which may sound horrific to some, but actually means that much of the oblique abstraction of the previous decade has been moulded into moments of sheer baroque beauty and sa… Read more

The singular Gyratory System follow up their album for Angular Recordings, The Sound-Board Breathes with this remix-laden single. The 'Reboot'l is a crazed, honking electro-jazz jam that finds itself getting straightened out into slightly less surreal packages by contributing producers like Meek Joe, Optimo Espacio and Alalal, who supplies some neat galloping disco. Alternatively, DJ Egor embraces the eccentricity with a manic march-along rendition, while Cherrystones channels the spirit of anachronistic sci-fi inspired electro, providing a real highlight to finish up with.

The 'Mindtravelin' EP follows her appearance on Funkineven's 'Kleer' with a choice set of future vintage modern soul. On the A-side Dam-Funk works Fatima's harmonised tingles into an ace electro-funk jam for 'Warm Eyes' but our interest has been diverted by the two shockers from Funkineven on the flip. His fluid, kinetic and ultimately cooool-as-f*ck synthlines provide thrilling surfaces to reflect Fatima's bold vocals, complemen… Read more

The ridiculously talented Daedelus offers his latest exploits for Flying Lotus's Brainfeeder label. In fine style, Daedelus constructs an unpredictable and winding narrative starting with the mini-epic 'An Armada Approaches', swelling from craftily harmonised beginnings to become a scene of surging strings and pitching hiphop rhythms. 'Tidal Waves Uprising' follows with impossibly strummed guitar strings before arriving at the yachting synth vistas of 'The Open Hand Avows. 'Order Of The Golden Dawn' offers a lush 4-minutes of tropicalia more in tune with his Long Lost project,… Read more

The production values are typically high for this one with full colour picture sleeve and some upper-crust synth'd-out future boogie within. 'Keepinthafunkalive' and 'Red' both jam on a slow and low vibe with bumped bass and G-funked synth curls, while 'Stile' on the flip keeps the pressure on a slow 4/4 roll with violet keys and the brilliant 'Tracklift' makes a slow ascent to the cosmos with harmonised chords sure to melt your head. For fans of Illum Sphere, Dibiase and Take! Sick twelve.

From the label that brought you The Fun Years, UK duo Pausal cue up their new album, Lapses, an outstandingly follow-up to their eponymous EP, released recently via Highpoint Lowlife. Given that we're currently experiencing a seemingly overwhelming supply of high quality ambient and drone releases, it's hard to separate the great from the merely very good. Lapses certainly makes a case for a position in the former of the two categories, not for being exceptionally experimental or new in its approach, but because it's such a consummate work that oozes musicality and a mastery of the art.

Featuring rare early works and previously unreleased tracks, Detached Metal Voice showcases some of Autistici's most experimental material, exploring electroacoustic dissections of what might once have been classical music ('Morphine (Detail)'), cut-up voices and odd sound poetry ('Babyman'), plus digitally mutated jazz ('Colonic People'). One of the weirdest entries has to be 'Whispering Mongo Man', which takes audio from a John Lennon interview, only to erase all the words, leaving just the residual sounds left by his breathing. Intriguing stuff throughout, and all very different from the 12k release Volume Objects, for which Autistici is probably best known.
