COOLY G

Wait 'Til Night

Hyperdub

Format_dot_vinylLP // £10.99

GRIME / FWD

Cat. Number: HDBLP023

Cooly G returns with her unique vision of sex music in 'Wait 'Til Night', her 2nd album and follow-up to 'Playin' Me' (2012). With no verifiable evidence of its efficacy, we're gonna play it straight here and judge it with our clothes on, you'll just have to use your imagination. It's a smart, deliberate shift from her signature house styles to a sort of stark South London R&B, bringing the minimalist sensuality of her earliest 'Dub Organizer' EPs full circle into twelve subtle, well-crafted song structures. The sound is very much about private space, dealing with varying degrees of infatuati… Read more

"Every clap, breath, harmony, and note was performed by Gabriel direct to 2" tape through a Helios console in real time. Aside from a dip into Pro Tools to loop the 25 overdubs that build the claps & stomps of "6 8" and drum programming on “Me Alone” and “Pour Maman”, computers had little place in Gabriel's world. Not to imply Bishouné is a product of vintage fetishism; rather, the songs are a humble and urgent bout of self-expression guided by the natural limitations of a solo performer. Gabriel's compositions revel in such unabashed personhood. "Everything Is Everythin… Read more

TRANSLLUSION - Mind Over Positive & Negative Dimensional Matter (Reissue), Tresor Records
A prime, if lesser-known, Drexciyan classic finally reissued. Like the album it accompanied, 'The Opening of the Cerebral Gate' is notable for its stripped down and bass-biased electro-techno aesthetic, yielding three tracks which stand out uniquely from the duo's oeuvre: the funky trudge and sonar melodies of 'Power Of The 3rd Brain'; the spine-shivering all time classic 'Disrupted Neural Gateway'; an abyssal electro monster named 'Do You Want To Get Down'. Yes please, all day.

Cat. Number: KRANK181LP

*First time this classic Tim Hecker album has been available on vinyl* Incredibly rich, sumptuous album from Tim Hecker, layering his particular blend of organic ambience with slivers of piano, found sounds and the quiet hum of abandoned machinery. Playing counterpart to the processed acoustic transmissions of Fennesz, Hecker takes a much darker route, only offering relief from the mass of textures he concocts with deep buried remnants of melody and light. As a follow-up to Mille Plateaux's sublime "Radio Amor", "Mirages" is an even more majestic album, striding with a confident heaviness further out into the wilderness, deep into the night.

Cat. Number: RE02

*Reissue of the long sold out Sandwell 12" on RRose's own Eaux imprint* 'Primary Evidence' consists of two tracks of wormholing Techno from this incognito producer. A-side 'Secretion' bucks off thwacking claps and is driven by an evil synthline grind primed to do the damage. B-side 'Bare Hand' is more restrained, deploying elegantly minimal percussion and a super crisp, oscillating acid line that's making our teeth ache. For our money it's either Derren Brown or Guru Josh behind this. Onwards!

**The third title in the re-release series of early Rrose titles on his/her own label, Eaux** Rrose presents another deep tripping episode of mottled, murky darkside Techno. A-side 'With All Faces Bleached Out' stoically channels sewer ambience over lurching subbass and steady bleeps in a unique style reserved for imaginative DJs and home appreciation alike. Flipside 'Worn/Scarred' refuses to resolve the rhythm in any conventional sense, arranging offset, discombobulated ketamine patterns with into a sludgy descent, while 'White/Drip' pensively precipitates Sähko-esque bleeps rendered with infinite reverbs. Ace.
