ANTHONY CHILD (SURGEON) - The Space Between People And Things, NNA TAPES

Anthony Child presents his first solo album - outside of his work as Surgeon. As with his turn-of-the-millenium drops on Downwards and FatCat, ('Boys, School Showers & Swimming Pools'; splits with Jansky Noise and Stock, Hausen & Walkman), he uses his birth name to denote his non-dancefloor and texture-based experiments, as he explains that this record "...consists of location recordings, tonal experiments, and thought-forms from many different positions in space and time. It is the sound of the space between people and things." Using a palette of source mate… Read more

Moleskin EP

GRIME / FWD

Cat. Number: GCA003

None hotter right now: UK's Moleskin drops his hugely anticipated solo debut proper on Goon Club Allstars - the label home to Mssingno. Heavily influenced by UK and US club sounds, namely Eski Grime, Baltimore Bass, and that hyper-funked Night Slugs aesthetic, Moleskin builds on the reputation of his Wiley edits and 'Burst' ace for Keysound with four up-to-the-second zingers cutting from brassy B-More bang on 'We Been Ready' and the percolating club fizz of 'Clemency', thru to the outrageously effective future funk flair of 'Turnt On' and the bouncing technoid bomb, 'Chips'. Mad tip for all fans of Jam City, Bok Bok, Her Records!

Arriving with respectfully minimal hype, Jessy Lanza's supple, subtle debut album 'Pull My Hair Back' might well be one of Hyperdub's finest releases in 2013. Galvanised by sublime production from her fellow Hamilton, Ontario native, Junior Boys' Jeremy Greenspan, it's just so dreamy I can barely write this without shutting my eyes and and doing the smuggest soul gurn. It seems they've each found their perfect muse - Jessy with her classical vocal training and Greenspan with one of the sweetest, most aware pop touches in the game - amounting to a chronically lush and eloquent cybeR&B lo… Read more

Crushing debut album from forward UK producer Untold. His 'Black Light Spiral' is an airless, borderline-aggressive assault on the dance borne from nigh on two decades immersed in British rave culture. Since 2008, with releases on his Hemlock imprint, for close chums Hessle Audio, and for Clone and R&S, among others, he's been instrumental in the post-Dubstep field with clinical appropriations of Breakstep, Grime, and most recently, European Techno. He's regularly touted as a producer's producer, a don among the baying, bassbin-dwelling throng, so as you'd imagine his debut album is an eage… Read more

Picking up where he left us with the 'Preparations' EP, Olly Peryman aka FIS has refined his sound with equally expansive and visceral values on these four tracks. His rhythm structures are increasingly unstable and the rich mulch of his harmonics feels ever denser, complex and chaotic, from the water-music slosh and Vangelis-style synth brass plumes of the title track thru the systolic palpitations and coarse roil of 'Womb Dreams' to the breathtaking, barely harnessed chaos … Read more

Black Acre's boy wunder shreds up soul, jazz, house, jungle and footwork like it ain't no thaaang. Following the concepts of his sought-after debut, 'Meditations On Afrocentrism', he once again deeply impresses with these four tracks, flirting with fibrillating footwork soul on 'Your Love (You Give Me Fever)', or jamming on a slow house downstroke with the crafty drum works and slumped samples of 'Jimi & Faye, Pt. 1'. Never one to be tied to any tempo, he kills it on a junglist 808 flex with 'Taste Of Honey (From The City)', and lays you down to bed with a dusted blues nod, 'Hey Now (When I Give You All My Lovin')'. Hot joints.

SHIFTED - Arrangements In Monochrome (Part Two), AVIAN
Shifted takes a quieter, creepier tack towards cinematic industrial scapes and pulsing rhythms on 'Part 2' of his 'Arrangements in Monochrome' session. Dangerously opiated and out-of-reach, his sound here marks a subtle step forward/away in terms of sound design, and a more noxious reduction of his signature palette, guiding us from lightless drone and drizzle in 'The Incoherent' to urgently scan ocean floor depths in 'Arrangement In Monochrome II' and the bleakly gorgeous 'Second Wash', while 'Entartung' gets tangled in a flux of rusty aquatic rhythm and 'Lenine' leaves us stranded in alien space station atmospheres.

Of course, anyone operating between those axes will be inevitably fall under the shadow of Scorn or Justin K Broderick, and doubly so when when you share the same initials! In fact, they sound so similar that we were labouring under the impression that this actually was Mr Broderick until about ten minutes prior to writing. So, it sounds quite a lot like JK Flesh and Mick Harris dicing with Trip Hop drums and that can't be a bad thing for a lot of you.
