Lo-fi beats on the downlow from Shlohmo for True Panther Sounds. Sounding closer to Vessel's exfoliated industrialisms than most in his scene, 'Emerge From Smoke is a blackened and moody thing riding with whipcrack snares and Carpenter-esque synth bass perfect for cruising the city at night.

"Gerry Read returns with a new twelve for Aus, his productions remain liberated from conventional influence while keeping rhythmically charged enough to work effectively on peak time dance floors. The title track is no exception as it loosely wades through the mire gathering frazzled sine signals and synth blobs along the way. ‘Cosmoid’ pins shimmering melodies and off kilter samples under a tight, persistent groove before Nathan Fake weighs in with loose, restless drum patterns and a healthy measure of plaintive melody to add a further facet to 3 2 1 and round off another solid package from AUS."

Cat. Number: MEDI084

Massive Gorgon Sound versions of Kahn's 'Dread' (2012) missile for Deep Medi. 'Dread' gets a heavy-troddin' gangsta overhaul with bloodshot vocal FX and re-tuned riddmic chassis aimed straight at the biggest speaker stacks. Likewise, 'Late Night Blues' is duppied with darker vibe, making the strings cut nastier, more electroid, and the galvanizing the mid-bass to biting impact.

Lorca does his rolling, shuffly house thing with style for Breach's Naked Naked label. 'Calcutec' makes the first move with low slung groove underpinned by wide-style garage subs, built with a proggy arrangement primed for bigger rooms and London 'floors. 'Ndlamu' figures a more Afro-centric, jackin' sound with spacey dubbing and tribal momentum, and also in a slower, more rugged Alternative Mix.

Joker plays nice 'n nasty on his follow-up to the 8-bit bounce of 'Head Top', backed with Rustie, Bassnectar and Picard Brothers remixes. The original flips J-Lo into a tightly controlled dubstep-trap riddim laced with bitter electro synths. Remixing, Rustie juices it up with spiralling scales and glassy '80s boogie keys for the soul crew; Bassnectar charges it up for the biggest pleasuredomes imaginable; and the Picard Brothers follow remix worjk for Jessie J with the slickest slow/fast flex juggling trap, Jersey and overlarge EDM elements for the EP highlight.

Etch follows his appearance on Keysound's 'Certified Connections' compilation with a fresh batch of 'ardcore/jungle anachronisms. Under the canny title 'Chemotaxis' - movement of an organism in response to a chemical stimulus - he hashes lines between Danny Breaks-style jungle and Toasty-esque breakstep with an elegant touch, cutting rug from the nimble chops and jazz-fusion vibes of the title track to the '06 breakstep rolige of 'What Lies Beyond', and darker dip of 'Green Park', before gettingon the dopwnstroke with a smart revision of his 'Prismatic' link-up with Third Person Lurkin.

**NNF at their very best, sourcing sweetest, strangest pops from Russia and Ukraine** "A cultural experiment as much as compilation, She Knows More Than She Thinks is the result of St. Petersburg musician Galya Chikiss deciding “to show something beautiful, unusual, unknown, and talented from different sides,” by uniting six different solo female DIY electronic artists from Russia and Ukraine within a shared document.

Heavy machinery all round, hitting it hard from the incendiary surge of 'Jamm 1' to the Brum-styled jag of 'Stitches' and sloping slammer 'Late Drift' via something a little more electro-sexy in the pumping swing of 'Eyebrow'.

Lil Jabba takes it back to Local Action with a flighty follow-up to his 'Scales' LP and the more recent ace, 'Gully' for True Panther. The '47' EP cycles six triptomatic cuts consolidating coldest instrumental grime, numb trap and dainty footwork with his signature, surreal atmospheres. 'Stalka' starts up with a tetchy trap/grime flex tussling against bittersweet hooks, lush pads; 'Dusty' does footwork tension with stomach-tightening syncopation and soulful swoon. The icy/warm couplet of 'Skates' and 'Tea' check into that same strange, slow and glassy headspace as Mr. Mitch's recent, brilliant d… Read more

Cat. Number: ALT18

Outstanding side of modular experiments by London's Deas for Luke Younger's Alter label. 'String Studies' is, quite remarkably, the first all-electronic record from Cameron Deas. Recorded at home in February/March 2014, he uses his usually favoured acoustic guitar as a source to trigger dizzying displays of modular noise twisting out virulent, kinetic sculptures that sound like guitar strings physically twisted into complex circuits. We guess there are clear precedents for this music in the work of Keith Fullerton Whitman or Jim O'Rourke's electronic works, but there's also something wonderf… Read more

Alter return with this album of brilliantly unclassifiable doings by London-based enigma D. Shan, aided and abetted by Vindicatrix and D. Bolger (ov The Pheromoans / The Bomber Jackets). In our mental chart of madness from these shores in 2014, this one is right up there, expanding upon the audness of his 'Known Nonsense' 7" with a further delineation and deconstruction of eldritch avant-pop tropes. Comparisons could be made with Art Bears, the Cold Storage scene, The Residents and Ralph Records roster, but ultimately Acolytes are a unique quantity.

It's dreamiest techno-house soused in ferric noise, pushing deep into the night with the claggy jack of 'Wormhole' parting to the booming kicks and dusty shafts of melody in 'Vapors', alongside an tracky, trancing workout reminding of Legowelt or Xosar in 'Zebra', before easing off the 4/4 kicks for the clipped machine funk flight of 'Fragile Feelings'.

Laidback beats 'n breaks from Coco Bryce on Myor. 'Cold As Ice' comes to warm up the winter months with four joints juggling drum machine patter and wavey synthlines in 'Love Fool' and some kinda South East Asian drums broken, Madlib-style, into the strange funk of 'Voodoo'. Bigger still, the snake-hipped 'Selesha' touches on Ethiopiques jazz modes inna rugged style, and 'Always By My Side' jams on with some crafty piano house hooks witha broken beat pivot.
