Featured Vinyl

ALEX SMOKE

Dust (w/ Tessela Mix)

R&S Records

Format_dot_vinyl12" // £5.49

TECHNO / HOUSE

Cat. Number: RS1312

Alex Smoke reprises the moody electro soul heard on his Wraetlic album with this techno-edged roller for R&S, backed with Tessela's future 'ardcore remix. In 'Dust' surreal vocoder voice, holo'd techno rhythm and floating electro pads ponder a cyber echo chamber sound design. Tessela turns the vocal nasty and fires up his rudest breakbeats and Dark Soldier basslines. Smoke's 'Ruction (Dub)' comes off like a Villalobos groove mind-melded with 'Amber' era Ae.

TORTOISE - Beacons Of Ancestorship (Thrill Jockey 20th Anniversary Edition), Thrill Jockey
*2012 Reissue* Beacons Of Ancestorship actually represents the first new material from the Chicago band in five years, although since 2004's It's All Around You there's been little time for resting on laurels, with the four-disc collection of rare material A Lazarus Taxon and covers album The Brave And The Bold (a collaboration with Bonnie 'Prince' Billy) both arriving in the interim. 'High Class Slim Came Floatin' In' immediately reintroduces you to that twisty-turny Tortoise modus operandi, yanking you between stutter-funk basslines and sharp… Read more

"Sonic Youth's Kim Gordon and Bill Nace (X.O.4, Vampire Belt, Ceylon Mange, etc.) are Body/Head. The pair began working together in various loose formats a few years ago, but the Body/Head concept evolved more specifically in early 2012. Initially their approach was almost entirely instrumental — lattices of interwoven feedback rainbows, with bits recalling everyone from Heldon to Keiji Haino. They usually performed against a backdrop of slow-motion film projection, creating a dream narrative of undeniable power and visionary reach. Kim’s voice began creeping into the mix soon after, and the v… Read more

TECHNO / HOUSE

Cat. Number: HES025

It's been 3 years since the mighty 'Claptrap' came out, and a year or so since that fine Hemlock EP, it's good to finally have a new Joe twelve drop for Hessle. 'Slope' takes a more functional House template as its starting point and gradually imbues it with all manner of drones and found sounds to satisfying effect. 'Maximum Busy Muscle' on the flipside is more organic, not all too dissimilar to something you might find on, say, Powell's Diagonal label, recalling the squashed funk of that recent Shit & Shine EP, or indeed Liquid Liquid's 'Cavern' as reimagined by Matthew Herbert.

One of the leading lights in R&S’s much-vaunted new generation of artists comes correct with his full-length debut album. Like Mount Kimbie or his old friend James Blake, UK producer Rob McAndrew seems to draw as much inspiration from the painterly post-rock abstraction of Talk Talk or quiet-mode Mogwai, and the fanatical detail of 90s laptop electronica, as he does from dubstep, R&B or house: take ‘Masami’, in which pontillistic acoustic guitar plucks ripple across the surface of gauzy Music For Airports-style ambience, or ‘Lightmeters’, whose hushed dawn mood is broken up, or perhaps consolidated… Read more
