**Includes a free copy of the CD inside** ""The Nature Of Connections" almost entirely features pieces composed by Arve’s collaborators. Recorded in the sparkling acoustic of Oslo’s legendary Rainbow Studio by Jan Erik Kongshaug, it’s an album with closer ties to Nordic folk and contemporary, minimalist chamber music than any of Arve’s previous releases. At the same time it features some of the most melodic and seductive music he has recorded.

Skam Records

Format_dot_vinyl2LP // £16.49

ELECTRONIC

Cat. Number: SKALP030

*Vinyl Edition finally available* Blackpool's VHS Head returns to Skam with a new album of cut-up, ADD funk and horror atmospheres. Much like the first album, 'Trademark Ribbons Of Gold', VHS Head continues to fashion an archetype of hi-tech funk built on lo-fi samples liberally twocked from a seam of video nasty filth found in and around Blackpool. The results sound something like BoC and OPN beat up by Nicolas Collins after he lost on a phet-and-slush puppie-fuelled DDR session, spiralling a strobing stream of synaesthetically appealing sound/images with proper, Freestyle funk and disequilibrium.

EARLY ELECTRONIC / SOUNDTRACKS

Cat. Number: LPGRON137

Deluxe triple gatefold 10" set collecting Can co-founder Holger Czukay's 'Der Osten Ist Rot' (1984) and 'Rome Remains Rome' (1987) together with new remixes. Out of print for three decades, these albums document Czukay's sampledelic prowess, working with an Emulator sampler at Conny Plank's studio to make eerie and enchanting new dimensions drawing upon his time with motorik krautrockers Can and his musique concrète schooling under the tutelage Karheinz Stockhausen. At worst they're dippy exercises in "world" fusion; at best they're psychedelic collages swirling radio signals, MIDI orchestration and even samples of Pope John Paul II.

DJ SPRINKLES - Queerifications & Ruins (Vinyl Sampler Part 4), MULE MUSIQ
A master at work: Terre Thaemlitz aka DJ Sprinkles gives Hard Ton three prime deep house remixes, including two exclusive to this 12". Up top, the Dubberama mix is our pick of the bunch, doing away with the original's fairly cheesy vocal in favour of bringing forward the rippling congas and boosting that rumpy sub for 13 minutes of warmest house sensuality. Of course, the key to its success is Terre's naked mastering - there is none - which contrasts so sharply with so much beefed up and overly masculine mix-downs in modern house music, resulting in a far more… Read more

TECHNO / HOUSE

Cat. Number: Spectral 126

A trio of burned-out house bangers from Detroit's Patricia plus a dead shifty remix from James T Cotton. As with Patricia's 'Body Issues' release for Opal Tapes and Inhalants 12" with Jahiliyya Fields for L.I.E.S., their debut on Ghostly International presents a heavily obfuscated house style, burying fizzing, toiling drum machines and melancholic pads behind ferric smokescreens. The style is most effective in the motor city moodiness of 'Hulderhusan' and 'Foie Gras', but the most effective dancefloor cut has to be JTC's itchin' I-94 Lick of 'Drip Dawn'.

VARIOUS - Par Hasard : Chance Composition 1913-1951, LTM Recordings
"Par Hasard is a unique collection of avant-garde music by Marcel Duchamp, Francis Picabia, Georges Ribemont-Dessaignes and John Cage, all composed during the first half of the 20th century using chance techniques and operations. All selections are performed on piano. Iconic French conceptual artist Marcel Duchamp conceived both of his Musical errata in 1913. One consists of notes drawn at random from a hat; for the second, balls are dropped through a funnel into wagons drawn by a toy train. "Execution," Duchamp confided, "is rather pointless in any event." In fact both… Read more

Format_dot_vinyl12" // £7.99

ELECTRONIC

Cat. Number: ZEN12384

Canada's fertile pop/electronica scene comes good again with Evelyn Mason and Jeremiah Klein's first single as Evy Jane for Ninja Tune. Lest we forget, the duo's debut for King Deluxe was a real burner, every bit as addictive as anything from fellow Canucks, Grimes, Weeknd or Junior Boys. That's in large part due to the smoky allure of Evelyn's vocals, and no doubt due to Klein's subtly exquisite production, which sound at best here in the heaving digital haze and melodic tristesse of 'Closer', in the sweeping sub-bass dynamics and filigree vocals of 'Sosoft', and the Rhythm & Sound meets Junior Boys dub-pop styles of 'Worry Heart'.
