Cat. Number: HD033

Beamed from Montréal via Texas, Marie Davidson yields a gorgeous suite of alien synth pop sung in seductive French and English tongues. Her 3rd album, 'Un Autre Voyage' is an accomplished sound, proving an adroit touch over various sub-strata of coldwave and synth-pop compositional styles. Launching at an astral adjunct to Group Rhoda with the motorik drive and pensile synth drone of 'Boulevard Tascherau', she comes over all SPK or Skinny Puppy with the excellent 'Excès de Vitesse' (god this is sexy) and devolves into ghostly drone recalling 51517 with the expansive vision of 'Kid… Read more

Cat. Number: PMAWS004

Manchester's Zed Bias works at a warped electro-house and broken techno bent with 'Couch Life' for Loefah's 81. The sub 120bpm swagger of 'Couch Life' gets busy on a sorta Latin Freestyle update crossed with the kinda mid-tempo zones explored by DJ Samrai, factoring abyssal dub drop-outs into whirring drum machine flickers and wonky LFO dynamics. With 'Chokehold' he pushes the tempo up to 130bpm and rocks the bells over amorphous sub-bass shapes and the kinda bustling drums you'd expect from A Made Up Sound. The dancer's choice.

INDUSTRIAL / WAVE / ELECTRO

Cat. Number: EE003

Visonia hits the emosh buttons again with the tortured electro-trance romance of his 'Nausicaa EP' for Rotterdam's Electronic Emergencies. Across five tracks he deftly references Detroit electro-techno with the soaring harmonies and steely groove of 'The Moon Doesn't Want To Look At You', darker nEuro EBM styles with the slamming but slick momentum of 'Blue Mirrors', replete with a wicked deceleration, and harder yet in the mission-'ead techno drama of 'A Lonely White Wolf', before clocking out with the signature nerve tweak of the title track.

Cat. Number: IFEEL040D

Heady Balearic house and breakbeat trips backed with a drippin' Call Super remix. Sunao Gonno at the controls on the A-side, rubbing up a creamy lather of progressive synths and padded, whirring groove for fans of Soichi Terada in 'Obscurant', and breezy kosmic breaks in 'A Life With Clarinet'. But, arguably the one to check for is Call Super's B-side mix, where he melts the spine of 'Obscurant' in pure liquid MDMA vibes.

Killah dancefloor injection from Matias Aguayo. These are dedicated DJ tools for bodies in motion, no fuss, no fight. Uptown, the bustling techno of 'Tomada' comes close to the percussive Afro-Latin sound currently pushed by Lisbon's Príncipe crew, whereas Groundfloor Left' is pure percolating Cómeme business packed with bullfrog croaks and slippin' syncopations. Downtown, 'Gato Disco' goes ghetto Todd Terry and 'Loca Dance' locks into sprung techno groove beside the rugged patter of 'Ese Pompin'.

Cat. Number: VLEK18

A welcome return from Belgium's Sagat, back with his dusty, canted rhythm trips on the most excellent Vlek. In each piece he teases our sense of rhythmic anticipation with grid-twisted grooves, from the wickedly schizoid jag of 'Melt' flipping between honking stabs and serene chords, thru the cyber-tribal 2-step zone of 'Body' to blunted Andy Stott styles with the gaseous smudge of 'Earth' punctuated by woodblock cracks, or the slow motion ambient elegance of 'organs'.

Ostgut Ton's little sibling, Unterton gives birth to a new artist with the crackshot techno session 'Summe'. Perfectly balanced between sullen and spacey 4:4 and roiling, brukken techno, four grooves touch on slow druggy thump ('Objectness'), adroit and gear-slipping hydraulix ('Schleife I'), old skool Regis ('Schleife IX') and Mills or PAS-style bleep ballistics ('Schleife III') with real class.

Big room-ready, dramatic techno-house remixes of Barnt by Tale Of Us & Recondite, and Magazine's Jens-Uwe Beyer. Squared up for heaving throngs and big, clear soundsystems, the Recondite & Tale Of Us mix wends thru ten minutes of near-ecstatic kraut-techno builds driven by motorik thud, whereas Jens-Uwe Beyer takes a more teasing route to the same truth with expansive drone harmonics and layered, tribalist percussion.

"This cover of Brian Eno's seminal Discreet Music is a musical epilogue for Kid606's Bored of Excitement full length out in May. This single 30 minute song maintains the spirit and harmonic progressions from the original, but it eschews synthesizers and tape loops in favor of multitracked piano, multiple reverbs and pitch-modulated phasing. Discreet music came before Eno's Ambient 1: Music for Airports. It laid the foundation for modern ambient music by building upon Erik Satie's "furniture music" concept. Eno employed a generative compositional technique … Read more

Noisy, hay-wried electro outta the Detroit Underground. For the 2nd time Kyle Hall meets Kero following their 'Zug Island' session for the former's Wild Oats. This time they flex between clipped electro-acid in '126BPMNONAME' and squashed, computerised nastiness with 'EP2-3 up top, and lay down some phat-ass and freaky jack with 'Riverside Connextion', before spending any remaining energies in the tangled, discordant tones of 'Polydextrose-24BIT'.

Intoxicating Rasta dub biz from the Wareika Hills, Jamaica, via the desk of Jackson Bailey's Tapes in London. Still hot from his reggae-pop standout on Workshop 21, he furnishes two versions of The Wareika Hill Sounds' 'Datura', getting to grips with funde, repeta and bass drums in a heads-down session licked with guitar and flute by Kenrick Diggory. Now that Honest Jon's mention Keith Hudson in their write-up, it's so easy to imagine his husky croon floating over the 'Datura Mystic' mix, however, the dub is really summat else; a rocking swirl of recursive drums recorded right on the biting point, and nowt but. It's a killer!!!

Cat. Number: HTH042D

Throwing Snow piles his emotional weight behind two bittersweet techno trancers for Houndstooth. They mark a slight departure from his well-loved 'Mosaic' album, moving closer to the laser-guided but gruff grooves of recent Chris Clark than his nimble, jazzier workouts. 'Lumen' beams killawatts of lush synth discord to taste, banking dizzy synth harmonics and swinging breaks with a lip-smacking, ecto-buzz potency. 'Paint' works on the other side of the wave, tempering the sheer high with a sweeping sense of melancholic majesty for a proper friday night rollercoaster vibe. Gwan, gizza dab then.

Bad Body's crushing 'Do You Know I Live' album is a bitter distillation of suburban ennui and drained-of-power noise. It's the latest salvo on David McLean's stubbornly wicked Tombed Visions label, here remastered and reissued on tape from a 2013 vinyl release on Fortissimo Records. Headed up by the mononymous Paul, and hailing from the rolling no-mans-lands of middle England's Bletchley Park, they share a dysphoric, sardonic sense of black humour with the Charcoal Owls/Pheromoans/Liberez axis as much as Leyland Kirby's strung-out despairs and even Consumer Electronics' tell-it-how-i… Read more

"For the better part of two decades, Calexico have crossed musical barriers, embracing a multitude of styles, variety in instrumentation, and well-cultivated signature sounds.

Encouraged by the experience, the guest list grew to include Ben Bridwell (Band of Horses), Nick Urata (Devotchka), Carla Morrison, Gaby Moreno, Amparo Sanchez, multi-instrumentalists from the Greek band Takim, and Neko… Read more

Canada's Local Artist trips from his smudgy house aces on Proibito and Mood Hut (as Slow Riffs) to Bradley Zero's Rhythm Section International. It's a vibe, teasing in with a digital dub of the frayed bleeps and tape-sodden Beatdown sounds in 'Feelings', and cracking out the his dustiest drums and cowbells for the breezy shuffle of 'Ozone'. Flipside, he cuts fathoms deeper with the creamy subs, distanced chords and ear-worming vocal stabs of 'Place I' stretching out to a hypnotic horizon.
