Straight from the overactive dome of Gobby, a trio of crooked techno-tronic constructs for LA's TAR label. Working off to the side of Physical Therapy and Tuff Sherm, his 'Hidden Temple' sp;aices strange flighty melodies and languid micro-house groove; 'Your Final Catalog' cracks open a can of noise in your face; 'Holt!!! Spanish Level 1' is a surprisingly well-developed strain of his patented freakiness, mutating a cracked sci-fi aesthetic over nine minutes of hall-of-mirrors techno.
*Narcotically effective tech-house* "Ferenc Stenton's 'Hover Drone' is a sonic glass consisting of tonal silica, in non-crystalline form. It differs from traditional releases in that it contains no other active ingredients, which are typically added to sonics to lower the melt temperature of the tracks. All tracks on the 'Hover Drone', therefore, have high working temperatures. The optical and thermal properties of Stenton's production often create vacuums in other tonal ranges due to its purity. For these reasons, it has better ultraviolet transmission than most other releases."
Kelis receives a diverse dancefloor overhaul… Quadrant, Kid Hops and Iris turn 'Change' into a tear-out D&B monster; Machinedrum juggles dancehall/hiphop and footwork tempo switches in a slick 'Runnin'' version; Hyper gives 'Forever Be' an epic, new skool 'ardcore headrush.
Plush and emotive widescreen synth composition from Osaka's Overscan. Composed and recorded between 2013 and 2014.
"Moral was the trio of Marco Andreis (Guitars, Bass), Hanne Winterberg (Vocals) and Ingolf Brown (Synthesizers, Rhythm Box, Sequencer) from Aarhus, Denmark formed in 1981. They released their debut mini-album “Dance of the Dolls” on cassette in 1981 and the album “Whispering Sons” on cassette in 1982. The group played very few concerts, but supported both Monochrome Set and Nico. In May 1983, they contributed three songs to the Irmgardz Records sampler “Somewhere Outside”, a compilation featuring groups from outside of Copenhagen. During the summer of 1983, Moral recorded and produced their de… Read more

**Limited edition of 500. Initial copies on peach and turquoise wax. Mastered by Matt Colton** Type reach inside the box to present Nochexxx's newest devilment of Drexciyan electro and grubby bleeps, 'Plot 'Defender'. Steadfast at the fringes and fronds of UK electronica since the late '90s, Dave Henson a.k.a. Nochexxx has previously done the do for Ramp Recordings and Actress' Werk Discs over the last few years, forging a sort of eldritch, radiophonic cyberpunk that frankly sound like f**k-all out there. OK there are plenty of artists working with cranky, heatsick synth and drum machines rig… Read more
**New edition of this absolute classic in a new sleeve** This post-revolution Iranian album from 1985 is so ahead of its time, so completely off on its own sonically and stylistically - that you'd be forgiven for thinking it were a hoax. In reality it's one of the most sought-after and exceptional records from the Smithsonian Folkways catalogue, here brought back to life in this facsimile edition put together by the Dead Cert imprint. Until now, it's been the preserve of a small handful of collectors who rightly hold it in huge regard and close to thei… Read more
**2LP in a gatefold sleeve with DVD and digital download code redeemable from the label - Rob Aiki Lowe re-appears alongside French synth voyager Ariel Kalma with quite possibly the finest release on RVNG yet following that killer side for Type a couple of years back. Highly recommended!* The FRKWYS series has a tendency to turn out some really inspired unions, and this ranks among their best. Recorded just outside of Mullimbimby, a remote community on the eastern Australian coast, it marks a pineal, inter-generational journey aligning Kal… Read more
*Includes bonus DVD - Rob Aiki Lowe re-appears alongside French synth voyager Ariel Kalma with quite possibly the finest release on RVNG yet following that killer side for Type a couple of years back. Highly recommended!* The FRKWYS series has a tendency to turn out some really inspired unions, and this ranks among their best. Recorded just outside of Mullimbimby, a remote community on the eastern Australian coast, it marks a pineal, inter-generational journey aligning Kalma's naturalist tendency and invaluable background working at the GRM … Read more
*Deluxe / Expanded Box Set featuring a bonus 12" of remixes from Girl Unit, Jam City, Nguzunguzu, and Kingdom Kelela's world-taking 'Cut 4 Me' (2013) mixtape blooms from 13 to 22 tracks, augmented with dramatic new remixes and riddims from Jam City, Neana, Kingdom, Mike Q, Massacooramaan… Y'all know what the sublime original sounds like so let's skip fwd: Jam City entirely overhauls 'Keep It Cool' with a smoother sorta tension; Kingdom resets 'Enemy' with a low-riding ballroom swagger; Mike Q ramps the spare Jam City mix of 'Cherry Coffee' with flash and bolshy ballroom flair; 'Go All Night' … Read more
