ELECTRONIC

Cat. Number: AMB1415D

Heads-down in the dance with four brooding breakbeat and ambient garage figures from Synkro for Apollo. 'Someone' tugs on the heart-strings with solemn arrangement of sweeping pads and Toasty-style breakbeats; the ghostly 'Transient' flits around Burial and dBridge-style late romance; 'Contact' slips into something more comfortable with silky dowsntrokes and a vocal reminding of Steve Spacek; 'Falling' nods to mid '00s electronica with a poised blend of Ulrich Schnauss and Arovane-esque motifs anchored by a minimalist UK groove.

"Medical Records presents a very special double A side reissue of Fullerton, CA band Null And Void. Null And Void recorded 3 albums (1980’s “Happiness And Contempt” , 1982’s “Montage Morte” and a 3rd in 2012). Both of the 1980s LPs have relatively short playtimes, so we have decided to reissue both in their entirety on each side of this reissue. Hailing from a very diverse musical scene, Null And Void forged their own sound fusing elements of new wave, post-punk, cabaret and less characterized roots. Both of the LPs have gone long out of print and have become c… Read more

"Lawrence English and Stephen Vitiello are creators of mythology. Their mythology renders a series of acoustic spaces, haunted by narrative and hinting at happenings unseen, but certainly heard. With Fable, we are presented with their second duet. It chronicles three years of intermittent audio communications in search of new collaborative approaches. The results focus on the pair’s joint interests in modular synthesis, field recordings and the blurry boundaries between acoustic instrumentation and electronics. The album’s multiplicity of sources creates a weaving and at … Read more

That fruitful relationship brought together Truffaz’s investment in modern jazz (he has been that archetypal thing, a Blue Note artist), a sharp ear for the new discoveries of contemporary composers like Giya Kancheli and others in the eclectic world of new music, and developed a creative conversation with the world … Read more

"A playful electronic musical journey evocative of Brian Eno’s ‘Music For Films’, Oneohtrix Point Never, 8-bit soundtracks and prog-infused 70s synth epics and executed with a rigorous conceptual framework worthy of John Cage or the radical film experiments of Lars Von Trier. ‘Solarispellis’ is the follow up to Arandel’s 2010 debut album ‘In D’ and similarly continues to be entirely in his signature key (a nod to minimalist godfather Terry Riley). From woozy electronica to emotive techno and the most vertiginous Krautrock, the tempos, moods and subjects are intertwined, covering an array o… Read more

Getting better with each release, the Strange U hip hop crew come correct for Par Excellence. The title cut rolls out some dusty bleeps and gruff raps like a long lost MF Doom joint produced by Dilla - sh*t you not! 'Sprites' is more robotic, abstract, reminding of Divine Styler, and 'Summertime Skeetin' gives it some low slung UK rap attitude besde the frazzled lurch of 'Monster'. Doubt you'll hear anything quite like this from UK in 2014.

After a period recording and producing for Memphis’ Home Of The Blues label, Willie Mitchell hooked up with Hi Records.

The yung Parisian crew step deeper with the blue sci-fi atmospheres and in-the-pocket grooves of Jean Nipon's 2nd 12" for the label. Sealing the airlock entrance with the near beatless 'Eerie', the session turns to simdeck deep house ambience with 'Daydream Nation' before tucking into the crooked machine patter and sino melodies of 'I Ow You So Much', saving the best for last with a percolating piece of steel drums, jagged drum machine patterns and exotic robo voices in 'Up North'.

Mercurial operator Matt Lyne aka A Taut Line shape-shifts into proto-futurist 4th world house mode on his Tokyo-based Diskotopia label. 'Bamboo Holography' imagines a space where earliest Chi-house rhythms and worldly, Hassell-esque motifs can copulate with linear yet gyroscopic freedom, yielding something creamy and sweet for the 'floor. 'Freeze Roll' is ruddier, feeding influence from cosmic Italo and early '80s Japanese disco forward into a tangled, digitally frayed boogie groove peopled with mutant titty bar chatter and bustling atmospheres.

Cat. Number: SNAP2

Extended, Krautische interpretations of Paper Dollhouse's ritual praxis from Dva Damas drummer and techno producer Joe Cocherell, and Montalk. Taking to 'Space III', Cocherell renders 11 minutes of rippling motorik techno groove and prickling kosmische arpeggios that eventually subside leaving us stranded for the final minutes in outer space. Montalk's rework of 'Drone II' is more subtle, working with coolly isolated bass frequencies and salty electronics to shape a spectral scene of detached vocals and space station distress signals.
