Format_dot_stuffCassette // £7.99

INDIE / ALTERNATIVE

Cat. Number: DC637CS

"Since 2008 Dope Body have been refining and redefining their own kind of hard rock music, a sound that has many tributaries flowing into it but one that is definitely coming through a group that could only happen now. Dope Body are in a four-way conversation here, with drums, guitar, bass and vocals all pushing it around. Leaning into the future, mindlessly, just reacting, the jams of ‘Kunk’ are shimmering, alive with a simmering sizzle. Swirling jams that pound and float, cloud-like, associating segmentally like a naturally growing train of thought. ‘Kunk’ rolls forth with funk and flutter, ple… Read more

**Includes insert** Chunky-assed Chi-house from Big Miz on Glasgow ghetto label, DABJ. Already achieving anthem status in the G, lead cut 'Good Thing' is a belting vocal number riding fruity organ and swinging bassline to the centre of the 'floor, whilst the others cut between percolated cowbells and padded subs in 'Electrolites' to the wonky curve of 'Solange' and the tightly tucked jack 'n roll of ' Wurx'.

With carnival season in full flow we pull up 14 crucial riddims from the dancefloor diaspora. It's a worldwide ting, scattered between Ata Kak's infectious 1990 highlife 'Obaa Sima' thru the tracky Argentinian swerve of Matias Aguayo, and searing heat from Bordeaux-based kuduro star Nidia Minaj. At sticky points between, you'll cross the killah S.A. Gqom styles of Menchess, Dutch-Surinamese panic-tech from Anti-G, and even Detroit's Anthony Shakir flipping Grenadian Soca, plus a sassy little Shangaan number by Nozinja and the Trini-UK torque of Jus Now's 'Badder Than' attack… Read more

While it resonated through remnants of ancient settlings, the boy had to overcome many obstacles and solve numerous quests, journey through mystical forests, foggy mountains and ghostly villages, battle the forces of nature and lose himself in this adventure.

Cat. Number: LECABANON003

The debut collusion from Nebulo (Thomas Pujols) and Druc Drac (François Dumeaux) manifests a gaseous and elusive set of psychedelic reference points. In orbit of Sculpture's vivid hallucinations or the plonging modular polyrhythms of Sote's 'Arrhythmia', the session unfolds according to a febrile logic with ten pieces sweeping from future-tribalist electro pulses thru salty microtonal shudders, to tender ambient dimensions and mind-flossing arpeggios, constantly in motion and rarely repeating phrases. It feels pagan and forward; ancient yet electrified; familiar but intangible. RIYL Sculpture, Patten, AFX, Max Tundra.

Creepy drone and eviscerated coldwave tropes by a new, Brooklyn-based unit - Grant Aaron, Eric Holmes and Camille Altay a.k.a Birds of Prey for Ricardo Donoso's Kathexis label. Working shades away from their label boss's own practice, their eponymous debut album evolves from the morphing spectral introduction of 'Black Vulture' thru the gaunt cyberpunk tone of 'Hollow Object' to plumb swampy nocturnal zones in 'Camber' before turning darker, febrile with the swarming electronics and dustbowl guitar of 'The Horse Thief' beside the fleshly arpeggiations of 'The Field'.

Their first joint outing since 2012 tests out four signature dancefloor mutations: 'Reasch' cloaks quicksilver electro-acid with widescreen harmonic pads; 'TRrnt' dips on a sort of halfstep acid D&B flex; 'Spud Bencer' wrenches darkside synths into alien hip hop graffiti; 'Grone' tilts headlong between VSnares-style drum breaks and Autechrian synth shudder.

As the album title implies, this album deals with sleep, or a lack of it, and most particularly the liminal spaces between light/dark, waking/dreams, and natural/noumenal realms. In Scott's own words "Couldn't sleep...; arose to forage for sound. The hum of the fridge encouraged further investigation of hidden, domestic sounds; the fish tank, dvd player, a broken laptop...; Dawn and morning light allowed more sound and the guitar, in its case, beckoned...; From darkness to light…" And thus … Read more
