Clara Moto offers up the delicate tech-house pop of her 'Silently' cut for remixes from Sissi Lewis, Kirk DeGiorgio aka As One and Carl Johan Elger. The edit version of snips her down to a sweetened mouthful of electronic dance pop while Sissi Lewis extends the wistful vibes with a shoegazy intro leading to a psych-cushioned dance-rock groove reminding of Ewan Pearson. Kirk DeGiorgio slips into elegant Euro-minimalist mode with a fizzing tech-hous mix and Karl Johan Elger provides a supple, bass-lead minimalists groove with an icy melody and ace autotune treatments.

Cesar Urbina returns to Infine for a second outing, following on from last year's Glandula EP. The lead track takes a while getting to where it's going, but by the time the snare drops around the halfway mark, a juddery, melodic lead makes its presence felt, resulting in a nifty little hook. 'Firecrackers' is characterized by a similarly odd array of synth sounds, while 'Morning Gaze' is slightly more understated, relying on a network of flattened microbeats for its driving force. Ace.

An alluring piece of melancholy vocal house from Douglas Greed (or Mario Willms, as his mum no doubt prefers), 'New Innerstate Strategies' takes on a floating, widescreen quality on the original mix, while the 'Tofu On Ice' edit is a little more stripped and less concerned with atmospherics, reducing the track to a more minimal, functional blend of elements.

Cat. Number: 3700426900409

Despite its title, Francesco Tristano's Not For Piano, is in fact an album of ivory-tickling solos by the 25-year-old Juillard graduate. Tristano fuses together a variety of different performance styles, embarking upon that increasingly popular pursuit: the piano-based techno reinterpretation suite. Perhaps most unusual of all the covers here is Tristano's take on Autechre's 'Overand', from Tri Repetae, but in addition to that you'll encounter Jeff Mills' 'The Bells' and a rendition of 'Strings Of Life' to boot. In amongst all this frivolity you'll also find highly competent orig… Read more

Superposition marks the debut outing for French producer Eric Reynaud, who should be in good company at Infine, what with the likes of Apparat for labelmates. Reynaud's production style similarly blurs the boundaries between post-Autechre IDM, micro-house and more experimental formats. The title track gets the release underway with elaborate 4/4 manoeuvres, before 'Inside The Neighbour's Cat's Head' takes digitised approximations of Eastern instrumental sounds andembeds them into a dense percussive setting, populated by dizzying edits and cuts. Sounding rather more like… Read more

'Wings Of Death' presents a dose of silky-smooth melodic electronics, characterised by a crisp, simple drum sound underscored by a warm, fluid bassline and gently evolving additional synth textures. The mood of understatement is expounded upon by 'Venom Dance', an unexpectedly funky piece of dancefloor minimalism, flecked with string samples and bleeping monotones.

Spanish Breakfast is the first full album from Rone (aka Erwan Castex), and as attempted by so many dancefloor producers, he's gone down the route of breaking up the long-form 4/4 numbers with interlude tracks and ambient sound design intervals. Fortunately, this isn't a card Castex overplays, and the flow between the glistening propulsions of 'Belleville' and the gently cinematic 'Aya Ama' remain unbroken, meaning there's plenty of room for building up momentum patiently. A very fine album, deftly stitched together from discerning beat productions and a carefully understated melodic presence.

*First in a series of three albums to be released from Demdike Stare this year - taking in broken sound experiments, unfurled dub and haunted strings...* Lancashire's sons of occult darkness push off into the night with the first in a triptych of spellbinding vinyl-only LP's. 'Forest Of Evil' is a direct elevation and expansion of the ideas expressed on the debut album, 'Symbiosis', literally breaking down multiple elements to run as two extended pices - one on each side, giving more scope to suck us into an abyssal vortex of inky blackness without interruption. The sides are themed … Read more

So, 2008 is the return of Pianos eh? This guy knows that's the case, after producing a remix of THE piano tune, 'strings of life' a few years back, Mr Tristano returns with the suspiciously similar 'The melody', backed up with an absolutly essential Carl Craig remix for all those techno fans with a closet passion for Liberace. Carl Craig's remix is as usual, pretty faultless. Taking a good few minutes to get warmed up, C2 plays around with just the piano line and a beat before introducing one of those insanely nagging bass riffs and subtle synth elevations that take the track exa… Read more

This is the eagerly anticipated follow up to Kaada's debut on Ipecac, 'Thank You For Giving Me Your Valuable Time' in which he collaborates with Ipecacs very own honcho and legendary Faith No More / Mr Bungle ringleader Mike Patton. This is a tremendously odd and often beautiful collection of tracks that play around with harmonies, melodies and forms inspired by composers Gustav Mahler, Chopin, Brahms and Liszt. The song titles were chosen from French songs of the 1800', while the tracks reference fifties and sixties sci-fi sound effects. As odd as you'd imagine, and as original as you'd expect. Check!
