*Taken from the original master tapes and presented with new artwork based on the rare European and South American poster artwork for the film’s original release with exclusive sleevenotes form Andy Votel and actress/director (and Jodorowsky friend/collaborator) Asia Argento - an essential companion piece to Finders Keepers exclusive Jodorowsky series and an enthralling and pop culturally significant release in its own right* "Presented here as part of a dedicated series of Jodorowsky’s ABKCO film scores (alongside the previously unreleased The Holy Mountain and The Dance Of Reality), F… Read more

**180g vinyl with double sided insert and paste-on postcard artwork. Edition of 300** Outta nowhere, Downwards present Autumns' fully formed debut record of ghoulish, drowned lo-fi productions. Described as "Jesus and Mary Chain meets Joe Meek and Ride head on" it perfectly captures that sensation of hearing a band playing from two rooms away whilst locked in paralysis brought on by quaaludes. We're sure you know the feeling. There are six tracks, each placing a noisy barrier of indeterminable distance between the charmingly rudimentary songs and the listener, at best in 'Tired Eyes' with its machin… Read more

*A new label from Shapednoise, featuring a remix from the man himself* "Centaure is artist Franck Vigroux’s newest solo studio effort, following a period of both live and studio collaborations (with artists such as Ben Miller, video artist Antoine Schmitt as Tempest, and Mika Vainio) and music specifically written for multimedia performances. As the inaugural release for Cosmo Rhythmatic, the 12” sees Vigroux indulging in his taste for dynamic intensity, pairing abstract freenoise of the heaviest sort with a taste for dense electronics beats, in order to explore new structu… Read more

**Yellow vinyl with iDEAL acid smiley sticker in thick poly jacket** Invasive psychoacoustic acid killer from EVOL for the sympathetic freaks at Sweden's iDEAL. Continuing a pursuit of altered states induced by pure frequency manipulation, 'Purple Melters' is the fourth work in a series that started with 'Proper Headshrinker' (Editions Mego, 2013) and will also see release on Diagonal later this year. Essentially, it's acid house without the house, drilling down to the 303's micro phase variations and psychedelic sleight-of-mind conjuring a sense of movement from ostensibly static phrases. Grant… Read more

*Limited Edition White/Splatter Vinyl on initial copies, also includes download code* Lakker beautifully find their voice in this eagerly awaited 2nd album. Working with vocalist Eileen Carpio on four out of ten tracks, they considerately expand their soundworld to encompass bludgeoning techno alongside elaborate IDM structures and vicious noise tear-outs, realising the most dramatic and perhaps definitive statement in their catalogue so far. Since 2011, the duo of Dara Smith and Ian McDonnell (Eomac) have come to define something that was maybe lacking (pun intended) in modern electron… Read more
**Hand-stamped 2LP + insert. Chiffon-shaded ambient dance nostalgia from Western Canada. One for fans of 100% Silk, vintage Rephlex Records, Solvent** "Vancouver resident LNRDCROY’s sound of lightly cosmic electronica has been a while coming, but this hour-long collection of crystalline, memory-drenched tracks couldn’t come at a more perfect time as British Columbia transitions into Spring. “Much Less Normal” is Leon Campbell’s impressions of the city and surrounding natural environs, built with subtle synth pads from a hefty stack of old Roland and Yamaha gear; warm, obliquely contemplati… Read more

Lethal Techno trax from René Pawlowitz aka Shed in EQD mode. Once again we're floored by the ferocity and hard-nosed discipline of his productions, from the monstrous modulations and Industrial-edged transmission on the A-side thru the unrelenting peak of the B-side. This guy's defintiely not f**king around - Strongly recommended.

'Intercepts' is a declassified dispatch of industrial espionage and ambient adventures from the chambers of Pye Corner Audio and Alessio Natalizia aka Not Waving. Inspired by the arcane, furtive world of spy rings - from the Rosenburgs to the Cambridge Five and the Duquesne case - they present encrypted analog communiques resonating with the mystery and drama of those covert operations. Pye Corner Audio sets out a killer suite of signature, lustrous synth arpeggios and soft-soled but driving bass perfect for purring around European cities behind blacked out windows, whilst Not… Read more

*10th Anniversary Edition with two bonus tracks "The Future Will Be Different" and "Tree"* 'Venice' was the follow up to the groundbreaking 'Endless Summer', a record with a legendary pedigree and with sales substantial enough to have shaken up its label. Musically, 'Venice' is a much more varied affair, reflected by the contrasting imagery in the cover photography. Check the heartbreak melancholy of the opener 'Rivers Of Sand' to the somewhat playful 'Chateau Rouge', the freeze framed longing of 'City Of Light' and 'Circassian' featuring the searing guitar of Burkhard Stangl… Read more
**2x140g vinyl mastered + cut by Rashad at D&M. Artwork by Bill Kouligas & Louis Reith** Easily one of our most anticipated LPs of 2014, Afrikan Sciences' 'Circuitous' transcends jazz, techno and hip hop with pineal Afro-futurist vision. Hailing from Saturn via Oakland, CA, Eric Douglas Porter aka Afrikan Sciences has carved an elliptic orbit thru the sonic cosmos with three albums and a string of 12"s for Aybee's Deepblak label, an empathetic home for his abstract, groovesome suppositions improvised on turntables, upright bass, and a matrix of digital tablets. Now taking flight within t… Read more

"Following on from co-‐compiling one of 2012’s best received compilations ‘Into The Light: A Journey into Greek Electronic Music’, new Amsterdam based record label ‘Music From Memory’ sets sail with a compilation of lo-‐fi beach funk and lazy synth jams from the Rhode Island keyboardist and ocean loving Leon Lowman. As well as a devoted painter and surfer of the East Coast, the synthesizer loving Lowman privately released two albums “Syntheseas” (1980) and it’s follow up cassette only “Sound Horizon” (1982). Something of a homage to his love of the local seashore and the women he was tr… Read more
**A super rare vinyl outing for one of the 20th century's most revered electro-acoustic composers, housed in debossed jacket designed by Stephen O'Malley and cut to vinyl by Rashad Becker at Dubplates & Mastering** Editions Mego's unarchiving of the unparalleled INA GRM catalogue reaches a momentous double header by Bernard Parmegiani - one of the 20th century's most revered and important electro-acoustic composers. Born 1927, Parmegiani started as a sound engineer for French TV in the early '50s, establishing a connection between sound and vision which he would explore… Read more
So, the cat's out the bag; Raime are Moin, who dropped an amazing side on that Confessions split with Pete Swanson last year. Here they return to that captivating sound on BEB proper with three tracks of lean guitar, muscular bass and cracking drums optimised and arranged with effects and sequencer. The project is evidently in tribute to that whole other side of their combined tastes, the one that looks to Steve Albini's Rapeman, Bill Laswell, This Heat or Dylan Carlson for inspiration, rather than Photek or Shackleton. Yet, just like Raime, everything is perfectly measured and economical, mixed with c… Read more

**Limited to 300 copies** Mumdance presents whip-sharp and heavily dazed exclusives from Acre and Fis on the 2nd of two exclusive 10" samplers taken his Fabriclive 80 mix. Chopped out of the mix, both tracks take on a new life of their own. Up top, Acre's 'No Signal' comes off like an obliterated grime-techno version of Æ's 'Basscadet', and Fis knuckles out the buckled texturhythms of 'Branch Light', one of his most abstract, unforgiving de/constructions to date, over on the B-side.

*Back in stock* After crafting one of the most enduring albums of the last few years with 2008's 'Hazyville', Actress sets his sights on the future with a crucial LP for Honest Jon's. This album signifies two important points; firstly, the fact that Honest Jon's are putting this out at all acknowledges Mr Cunningham's place in the lineage of potentially classic Afrofuturistic music, from George Clinton through Prince and Shake Shakir, and secondly, a major maturity and cohesion in his sound. Wheras it's predecessor was composed over a staggered period of many, many years, this album was fashioned in … Read more

Soichi Terada presents a perfect entry point for any budding J-House connoisseurs with this compilation of slick aces off his Far East Recording label. Sought-after over there and everywhere else, they amount to a prime seam of early '90s house, with levels of plushness and seductive groove up there with the best stuff coming out of New York, Chicago or Detroit at that time. Best known to collectors and heads willing to shell out for originals, his sound has been championed of late by Ben UFO and Hunee, who're both known to slip his treats into their sets. But now everyone can get on… Read more
Luke Abbott coins his Buffalo Temple label with the cracked serenity of 'Music For A Landscape'. His 3rd album, an original soundtrack to 'The Goob', also doubles up as a canny lead-on from 'Wysing Forest' (2014), pursuing that LP's sonic psychogeographic themes from Cambridgeshire to his home ends in Norfolk, also the location for filming of 'The Goob'. Incorporating richly scenic field recordings of insects provided by Chris Watson and Anna Bertmark (to be clear, they provided the sounds, not the insects), the albums gently unfolds with the s… Read more
Nick Edwards a.k.a. Ekoplekz explicitly pays homage to his formative influences with 'Reflekzionz' - kosmisch electronics and '90s electronica - on his 3rd LP for Planet Mu. Radiophonics references are swapped for a reverie of early AFX, Autechre and Wolfgang Voigt, among others, filtered thru his grubby dub lense to slot grittily with his previous. And, rather than bleached out tones, 'Reflekzionz' is fringed with a faded colour scheme psychedelically reflected in Zeke Clough's dreamlike sleeve artwork, creating a sort of false-memory implant aesthetic that frames his sound like a polaroid recollection of the originals.

*Surprise release from the mighty PAN label, Heatsick re-worked by Mark Fell's Sensate Focus across two long tracks totalling 35 minutes* From behind your ear, PAN pluck a blink-and-miss exclusive: a 35 minute audio response by Mark Fell (Sensate Focus) to source material by Heatsick, somewhere between cover version, remix and deconstruction. Along the A-side 'X' plane, tones are exploded, harmonies refracted with HD dissonance; time is extruded, made ductile yet intangible. On the B-side 'Y' axis hydraulic undulations and roiling tones expand and contract between kinetic kink an… Read more
**Limited first edition of 1200. Includes download code** Root Strata founder, Jefre Cantu-Ledesma scales supernal heights of dream-pop and shoegazing noise bliss with 'A Year With 13 Moons' for Mexican Summer. We'll get it out right now - this is easily Jefre's magnum opus; a consolidation of all that we already loved about the incendiary romance of his work, boosted by a renewed sense of wonder and a catalytic clash of pop pangs fighting against avant garde instincts. Under a title inspired by a Fassbinder film, 'A Year With 13 Moons' is the result of a residency at the He… Read more
**Limited edition of 750, includes download card** Prepare to be wowed by the complex, primitive futurism of Ben Zimmerman's 'The Baltika Years', sequenced and prefaced by Software's lead developer, Dan "OPN" Lopatin. Yielding a microcosmos of 31 compositions ranging from 10 seconds to 21 minutes in length, mostly composed and recorded using a Tandy DeskMate computer between 1992 - 2002, and touching down on D&B, bit-crushed dub, and near-baroque melodic economy, it's a shocking and deeply personal revelation, well warranting Software's comparison between it and "reading an abstract … Read more
*Re-Press* at long last the remastered edition is back in, pressed up on glorious double vinyl and housed in the original artwork...
Welshman-in-Berlin, Doc Daneeka serves up a soul-burning house bomb for Numbers. 'Walk On In' is a big ol' feel-good club heater with assistant production by Ratcatcher, taking flight with soaring chords and vocal powered by sleek, sub-heavy heft that goes equally well with your Chicago/New York classics and new skool bass/house weight. After all that ebullience, 'Trife Pt. II' is a drier, deeper jackers' groove buoyed by proper subbass pressure and frisked up with itchy drums to a lusher 2nd half. Highly effective gear for DJ and dancer.

Callahan knuckles out a ruffneck UK dance sound with 'Armshouse', the 1st drop from 4Seasons Records. The titlular club construction weighs in somewhere between Night Slugs and Wen's technoid grime riddims; 'Got Me' dips on a ghostly Uk bass bounce; 'Amalaya' plays ruffer with pilfered grime samples and bleak tower block receptor vibes; best of all, 'Basement Serial' deals a sick line in collaged subterranean styles with rudimentary drums and cloaked in ominous distortion before revealing a Burial-esque breakdown and slinking back into the shadows…
**3 x LP and DVD in a triple gatefold sleeve, includes digital download voucher redeemable from the label** "Legendary atmospheric metal doomsmiths Isis release a 3LP set of alternate takes and rarities. Temporal also comes packaged with a DVD featuring four previously seen music videos, as well as an exclusive clip for "Pliable Foe."

**Hyper limited edition, one-sided 12" with hand-drawn artwork** An unknown producer presents a tasty shot of psychedelic boogie via sources which shall remain unconfirmed, for now. Plugged in to vintage Funkadelic and Sa-Ra-like R&B, 'Program 1' executes its functions on the flyest, low slung groove and spaced-out synth layers. Buy now or weep on discogs later…
You've had the CD single, mini-CD, 7", 10" and 12", now here comes the vinyl version for those who can't keep up with Trevor Jackson's 'Format' fetish. Collecting 12 tracks, this version marks the illustrious producer, visual artist and video director's most substantial solo release, bar none, of his 25-odd year oeuvre; strafing from killer proto-house rawness in 'Lumiline' to fizzy electro in 'They Came From NY'. It's rudimentary yet adroit man-machine business, consolidating first hand experience of original industrial, hip hop, house, breaks and ambient electronica with an idiosyncratic age… Read more

William T. Burnett adopts his spirit animal guise, Black Deer, for a shamanistic return to the No 'Label'. 'Pray For Us' channels twin inspirations from deepest house, shoegazing drone electronics and Native American percussion rituals to elevate the 'floor to a higher place. The A-side is all about hypnotic, insistent momentum, manifest in the entrancing clapping rhythms and rolling bass of the title track and a gauzily radiant lather of loops yoked to peyote boogie groove in 'Leaving The Station'. B-side, the trip calms down to the mystic congos and pealing harmonic hallucinati… Read more
First sign of an intriguing record - 33 or 45rpm? Settled at 45rpm (even more interesting) 'What's Your Planet' replays scrambled messages from the Overlast galaxy, which sounds uncannily like some parallel version of Detroit. Coming off like a psilocybic Urban Tribe, the sound unravels between brain-burrowing ghetto-funk in the title track to a sort of screwy Jit pulsation with 'Days', before tilting into alien footwork with 'The Proper Way To Get Lost', and unstable wormhole techno with 'Accelerate Light'. No brainer, this, for freaks of all electronic stripes.
Mutant techno tackle in three versions from DJ Octopus, George K, Lucretio, Js and Grienko a.k.a. the Austerity crew. Flippin' the bird to Merkel, they come with a killer A-side of cyberpunk synths and junkyard EBM pulses held in strange friction with stray diva coos on 'Armistice of Mudros', while B-side bucks out the warehouse skirmish of 'Recovery Plan', and the murky jack of 'Over The Counter', which sounds like The Oliverwho Factory getting shut-down.
