TECHNO / HOUSE

Cat. Number: DKMNTL021

J&J’s last album 'Techno Primitivism’ totally floored us here, finding a sweet spot between elements of dub, jazz and psychedelia within a tactile house and techno framework. This new album - 'Clean-Cut’ - left us a bit cold on first listen, taking a much straighter approach feeding off classic Detroit and swung Chicago styles, but in the space of a couple of listens it has completely earwormed its way deep into our heads and refused to let go. From that off-ish pan-pipe hook on the killer title track to the red-lining drums on "Wheeze Please”, the production details and exotic flourishes ba… Read more

**Mindblowing electronic productions and songcraft from Africa-via-Paris circa 1975-1982!** Cameroonian musician and cultural polymath Francis Bebey is a bona fide legend of 20th century African music, art and literature. He introduced the world at large to Manu Dibango and had a stack of hits in the French-speaking African world, but it's his little known work with electronic keyboards, organs and drum machines which is staggeringly revealed here. Across 14 tracks, Francis cooks up a minimal but richly layered and heady concoction of frothy, improvised melodies, body… Read more

*Back in stock* Ben Frost's 2007 album Theory Of Machines caused quite a stir within the electronic music community, shattering genre conventions with its deft conflation of intensely dark metal, academic electroacoustics and blissful, drone-weaving modern classical touches. By The Throat takes these same principles and develops them into something altogether grander. This is an album of contradictions: during the opening piece 'Killshot', you'll be exposed to music that's both viscerally hard on the ears and achingly beautiful, combining gracefully cinematic dulcimer … Read more

Making use of on an array of instruments, field recordings, found sounds and vocal treatments, it’s a largely analogue variant of hi-tech production styles arcing from the dissonant to the sublime. The first two tracks recorded during these early sessions bookend the release, the opener ‘Time Away’ featuring Euphonium played by Kim Holly Thorpe and last track ‘Missing’ a contribution by Stott’s occasional vocal collaborator Alison Skidmore who also appe… Read more

NIN synth player and keyboardist Alessandro Cortini shapeshifts into the technoid Skarn guise with his debut for Shifted's Avian label. Across three tracks he puts a unique spin on the purest, monotone techno templates, capturing a brute, wormholing hardware sound comparable with classic Pan Sonic. With little background info to the 12" other than the obvious, we'd gauge that he's using a similar set-up to his acclaimed Sonno' and 'Forse' volumes, yet with very different results, possibly achieving such a kinetic, tactile buzz from only two or three re-amped machines and canny room… Read more
