**Exclusive Edition only available to buy at boomkat pressed up on military grey wax with 4 x Screen Printed inserts (A4) of redacted documents and artwork** '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… Read more
*Craig Leon-approved reissue of his two solo albums Nommos and Visiting as a 2LP set in gorgeous packaging with two essays by Leon and a download coupon* Issued respectively by John Fahey’s Takoma label in 1980 and Leon’s Arbitor private press in 1982, Nommos and Visiting were the twin brainchildren of studio wizard Craig Leon. Leon’s production was pivotal in realising the debut recordings by Ramones, Blondie, Richard Hell and Suicide. While those albums broke ground in new worlds of sound, Leon’s own debut album was arguably, if not literally… Read more
*Packaged in a heavy-duty screen printed cover, one-sided LP with the B side screen printed, mastered at D&M, individually numbered edition of 500 copies* 'Circle Three' is the first new release in the Circle series from Eleh since 2010's Repose. Described by Important simply as "Literal synthesis”, the album is at once familiar and a bit of a revelation as far as the Eleh discography to date is concerned. Although the trademarked frequency studies seem as bare and isolated as ever, there is a strange progression working within these pieces, pulsating bass notes slowly become env… Read more
**One-sided pressing cut at half-speed by Matt at Alchemy for maxxximum presha!** Killing Sound version '$ixxxx Harmonie$' with serious tech-step jungle swerve for BEB. Separated from the 'Killing Sound' double-pack, the near-ambient original is extended and reinforced with dreadnaught jungle rhythms and possessed warehouse vibes for a properly altered, shark-eyed swerve. We'll be damned if it ain't the deadliest thing we've heard from either Vessel or El Kid, the Bristolians behind Killing Sound, and surely marks a massive highlight of BEB's darkside operations. Miss this at your peril.
*Second in a series of three extended reissues from SND - Initial copies on transparent Green and Yellow Vinyl, 12-tracks fully remastered from DAT tapes by Rashad Becker at D&M* Mark Fell and Mat Steel’s second EP as SND was released in 1999, a year after their debut ‘Tplay’. It continued to explore their distinct, highly individual take on electronic minimalism, House and UK Garage stripped to its bare bones. This extended reissue features the original 6 tracks of ’newtables’, plus 6 previously unheard recordings from the same sessions - all fully remastered by Rashad Becker… Read more
**First run coloured vinyl edition w/ etched 4th side housed in debossed jacket and sealed poly sleeve with download code** Super smart 2nd album from Seattle's foremost hip hop accelerationists. Fronted by Ishmael Butler, formerly of the brilliant Digable Planets, Shabazz Palaces have cornered a unique take on contemporary hip hop melding traces of electronica, cyberactive dub and jazz inna cerebral but instantly gratifying style that swerves self-conscious oddness in favour of genuinely psychedelic lushness and off-the-dome freedom. Borrowing its title 'Lese Majesty' fro… Read more
*Remastered Edition - first vinyl pressing in years* What do you mean you've never heard of White Noise? White Noise is the musical lovechild of producer David Vorhaus and electronic music pioneer Delia Derbyshire. There's little to connect this to her more well-known work as part of the Radiophonic Workshop - White Noise is at its core a psychedelic record, albeit with some incredible electronic production. The Silver Apples or the United States of America (considered by some to be White Noise's US equivalent) would be good reference points, but what Wh… Read more
Magical make-over of Burt Bacharach and Hal David's 'Don't Make Me Over', as made famous by Dionne Warwick, now transported somewhere to avant-pop LA.
Hospital Productions debut from Nine Inch Nails’ Alessandro Cortini, a suite of 9 analogue synth pieces complete with found and ambient sounds* Alessandro Cortini is best known as the lead electronics performer in Nine Inch Nails’, but in recent years his work as ‘Sonoio' and a pair of fine albums for Important Records under his own name have highlighted his own individual productions. Known as one of the pre-eminent Buchla masters in North America, Cortini makes a surprising departure on this debut album for Hospital Productions by making use of little more than a Ro… Read more
**Die-cut jacket and printed inner with download coupon** The 1st in a fleet of 3 instrumental EPs from SBTRKT paving the way for his 2nd album. On 'Transitions 1' you'll find two mercurial grooves, melding an aviary of electronic chirrups and whirring garage techno in 'Gamalena', and a bittersweet blend of itchy, bit-crushed drums with cascade of Zomby-esque melodies in 'Hold The Line'.
*Extended 70 minute reissue of the very first SND release dating back to 1998 - the original 5 tracks have been doubled in number with original, previously unreleased recordings from the same sessions, all fully remastered from DAT tapes by Rashad Becker at D&M. The original pressing has been unavailable since its original release over 15 years ago - containing super influential and forward minimalism bridging between the reductionism of Ikeda and the swing of early UKG* Mark Fell and Mat Steel formed SND in Sheffield in 1998. Tplay was their first self-released EP, produced in a … Read more
Jay Daniel, Seven davis Jr and Ph0t0machine put a new spin on Four Tet's 'Beautiful Rewind' album tracks. Detroit's yung wunderkind, Jay Daniel rides roughshod drum machine rhythms, dissolving keys and field recordings of birdsong over a sublime rework of 'Aerial'; Seven Davis Jr nimbly tweaks Buchla' into a skipping, floating garage-house groove, and Ph0t0machine gives 'Crush' a mercurial electro-techno momentum.
**Die-cut jacket and printed inner with download coupon** The 2nd in a fleet of 3 EPs from SBTRKT paving the way for his 2nd album. We find the masked man at his most contemplative with the beautifully sullen chamber-pop chords and white noise snare punctuation of 'Resolute' backed by the Koreless-meets-Haruomi Hosono occidental chiptune winks of 'Kyoto'.
Mute finally release the CAN studio album reissues individually on vinyl. The albums were mastered and cut to vinyl by Kevin Metcalfe at The Soundmasters, London. Remasters and vinyl processing was coordinated by long time collaborator, Jono Podmore. Of all the band’s oeuvre, Tago Mago has been most often cited as the most influential and features the Can line up of Holger Czukay on bass, Michael Karoli on guitars, Jaki Liebezeit on drums and Irmin Schmidt on keyboards, and was recorded at Schloss Nörvenich in 1971...
**Diagonal deliver the second of two EP’s from Bronze Teeth, a new project from Dominic Butler of Factory Floor and Richard Smith of Optimo Music’s L/F/D/M. First pressing comes in a limited spot gloss jacket designed by Guy Featherstone. Mastered and cut by Matt Colton** Bronze Teeth bite back with a 2nd EP of bony, hardware-driven techno fizz for Diagonal, housed in another blinding sleeve by Guy Featherstone. Cut from the same electrifying sessions which yielded their debut 12", 'A Waif's Rent' follows suit with rolling, driven momentum and caustic electronics. A-side they jack up 13 m… Read more
*Re-press of Powell's killer EP for The Death of Rave...250 copies* Powell marks up the 2nd release on The Death Of Rave, following Mark Leckey's debut entry, 'Fiorucci Made Me Hardcore'. Powell's 3rd release refines his ascetic blend of lawless New York no wave, cold European electronics and late '90s D&B with incisive vision and propulsive torque. The EP's standout 'A Band' emphasises a chimeric indistinction between the "real" textures of sample-spliced guitars and drums and the gritted tension of painstakingly processed electronics, somehow sounding like MMM producing for MARS, whereas … Read more
**Die-cut jacket and printed inner with download coupon** The 3rd in a fleet of 3 instrumental EPs from SBTRKT paving the way for his 2nd album. He's on a forward UK soul tip here with the spiralling battery acid licks and plump subbass of 'Highs + Lows' and the gangsta waltz of 'Stifle'.
**Debut album of smoky production for Tri Angle with additional production from The Haxan Cloak and Roly Porter** "To many, ‘What’s Between’ will be viewed simply as the debut solo album by Irish singer songwriter James Kelly aka WIFE but to fans of the critically acclaimed metal band Altar Of Plagues this album marks the return of a much admired talent. As front man in Altar Of Plagues, James Kelly was lauded as being partly responsible for creating some of the most innovative music to emerge out of the metal scene in recent years. After the release of their third album, which many viewed as a … Read more

**Includes bundled download available in your account on 28th July** 'Wilderness of Mirrors' is a harrowing and compelling slab of dense ambient doom from esteemed Room40 proprietor, Lawrence English. Two years in the making and arguably ranking among his finest works, 'Wilderness of Mirrors' is, as English puts it, "reflection upon reflection, a pure white out of absolute aurality". Taking its title from a phrase rooted in T.S. Eliot's poem 'Gerontion' and later used to describe the misinformation campaigns of the cold war, it finds English channelling inspiration from the af… Read more
**Super slick, synth-heavy and seductive soul-funk from Nigeria 1978. 180g vinyl reissue housed in tip on-style jacket with download code. Edition of 1000** "Originally recorded for the EMI Nigeria label and produced by legendary producer Odion Iruoje 'Keyboard' was a one-off studio project formed by Brodricks Majuwa and Isaac Digha from circa 1978. These two session men were often used at the EMI studio and played in multiple recordings that Iruoje produced throughout the era. This extremely scarce and obscure record features amongst others Ignace de Souza of the Black Santiagos from the city o… Read more
Killer, stark, psychotomimetic jaxxx from the L.I.E.S. stronghold. They're apparently teasers for an upcoming project, leaving us with the taste of sweat and poppers after ingesting the rapid acid flux, spiralling accordion and spiky jack of 'ZKY', and kicking us in the gut with the haughty shunt of 'Image'. You dancing?
180 gram 2LP in Deluxe Gatefold sleeve inside a slip box with randomly inserted Black & White swirl vinyl. Music By Bruno Coulais - available on vinyl for the first time ever.

**Green vinyl housed in wrap-around artwork and PVC jacket. Edition of 300** Craig Tattersall (The Boats/Cotton Goods) rustles up a second LP of cracked midnight ambience and spectral electro-acoustic details as The Humble Bee for Other Ideas. For the first time on 'She Possessed The Secret For Listening To The Stars', Tattersall augments his usual palette of tape loops and electronics with the addition of analogue synthesiser and Girogio Sancristoforo's Berna studio software - a software simulation of a late 1950s electro acoustic music studio comp… Read more
Gobsmacking first-ever vinyl reissue of instrumental synth tracks sourced from Colin Potter ov NWW's early '80s tape stash, re-mastered and presented in deluxe, hand-numbered edition of 500 with screen-printed jackets by House Of Traps. Following their tease of a 7", Sacred Summits blow the dome off it with these five pieces recorded by Potter at his small home studio in North Yorkshire between 1979-1983. Spurred by the possibilities of Punk, inspired by the recording techniques of dub, and un-blinkered by formal music training, Potter conceived a take on ambient, kosmiche synth and drum… Read more
Mute finally release the CAN studio album reissues individually on vinyl. The albums were mastered and cut to vinyl by Kevin Metcalfe at The Soundmasters, London. Remasters and vinyl processing was coordinated by long time collaborator, Jono Podmore. Considered by many the finest Can album, ‘Future Days’ was the fifth studio album by Can. This is the last album to feature Japanese vocalist Damo Suzuki, exploring the ambient direction they had introduced into their sound on the previous year’s ‘Ege Bamyasi’ creating a landmark in European electronic music.
*2013 Re-Press* at long last the remastered edition is back in, pressed up on glorious double vinyl and housed in the original artwork...
*Re-Press on Silver and Purple Vinyl - Edition of 300 copies* Our Head Technician returns with the keenly awaited follow-up to his amazing 'Black Mill Tapes Volumes 1 & 2' as Pye Corner Audio, including the previously digital-only Volume 3 and the as-yet-unheard Volume 4. Lurking in the shadows between deep house, slow techno, Carpenter soundtracks and classic electronica, these sibling LPs transcend genres with hallucinatory, shape-shifting effect, trudging forth from the pastoral whimsy of the first volumes to a darker, less certain point on the horizon. They could jus… Read more
"A classic from the annals of The Red Krayola, available on vinyl for the first time in many years. The 90s edition of The Red Krayola roared out loud with ‘Hazel’. This album was received rapturously by post-rockers everywhere, and featured Mayo Thompson riding herd over a cast of dozens, including the then Gastr del Sol union of David Grubbs and Jim O’Rourke, along with John McEntire, Tom Watson, Stephen Prina and George Hurley, among many distinguished others."

**Edition of 300 copies only ** Clay Rendering, already responsible for one of our favourite releases of the year so far return with this limited run 7" of strung-out gothic gems for Hospital productions. With the taste of 'Waters Above The Firmament' still on our lips, Mike and Tara Connelly reveal their most vulnerable vocal, guitar and accordion on 'Fire Is Fall's Rose' before hackled guitars and trudging drums arch up like a waking daemon to close. Flipside, we're slowly swept up in the waltzing keys, chamber techno thud and absolutely gutted vocal of 'Red Roots'. Have your heart and eat it...
Originally scheduled for release on Halloween 1985 this privately pressed all female post-punk / broken-folk collective concept album was resurrected from the ashes of the original line-up of The Fall and Velvet Underground singer Nico’s Blue Orchids backing band at the command of pioneering Manchester female punk icon Una Baines before disappearing into the annals of UK punk purgatory. Comprising all the DIY traits and snarling attitudes of Manchester’s smartarsed punk retaliation, with haunting mechanical folk, pastoral drones and a back story that unites sleeve artist Linder Sterling (Ludus), Spi… Read more

Slicker sophomore EP of mutant bass and twisted electronics from Lorenzo Senni, Daniele Mana (Vaghe Stelle) and Francesco Fantini's One Circle. 'Transparency' follows their 2013 debut for label/incubator, Left Blank with a murkily ambiguous mixture of production fidelities, textures and styles delivered with a unique electronic accent. They and it are testament to a rooted yet accelerated Italian electronic music scene, presenting impressionistic, emotive visions referencing recent and hypermodern styles from a forward, somewhat detached perspective, as with the beautifully garish vision of… Read more
Route8, Jupiter Jax, Afrikan Sciences, NGLY and DYSN-T remix deep house treats from the Nous cabinet. Route8 sets the pace with a raw, swinging re-do of Spoiled Drama's 'The Sun In Your Face', and Jupiter Jax follows his 100% Silk debut with a sun-bleached boogie-house makeover for Valb-R's 'About Freedom' beside a loose, dazed Afrikan Sciences remix of Militades' 'As We'. Flipside, NGLY follows 12"s for Russian Torrent Versions and L.I.E.S. with a strident take on the same cut, and DYSN-T debuts with a dreamy, wavey, jakked-up remix of Route8's 'C19'.
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
**Includes digital download code redeemable from the label** Much needed reissue of the debut album of ambient Techno meditations from much loved DJ and producer Donato Dozzy. 'K' consists of two extended tracks clocking in at nearly half an hour each. The first roams sparse half-tempo terrain like some ancient AI chillout session, the atmosphere coloured with pale synth washes and splashing downbeat 909 rhythms. It's actually a number of tracks segued together, but it's seamless so you'd never notice anyway. The second track flows more like one of Dozzy's DJ sets, floating along linear drum machine pulses enveloped by enchanting drones and choral voices...
**Edition of 350 cut by Matt Colton at Alchemy** The latest in Vladislav Delay’s new label series finds the man himself & Max Loderbauer (NSI, Sun Electric) on top, uncompromising form. Operating somewhere between Wolfgang Voigt's pounding waltzes and the tunnelling techno of Rrose, the A-side's '#2' tucks up militant triplets and chaotic, streaming synthlines to febrile effect. Over on the flip #6 involves a hyper-accelerated production sounding something like DJ Stingray and Villalobos having it out at breakneck momentum with a gush of stepping drum percolations… Read more
*One of Levon's most in demand 12"s finally re-pressed* Levon Vincent's releases on his own Novel Sound and Deconstruct Music have lit up forum discussions and the playlists of everyone from Berghain's Dettmann & Klock to Efdemin and for very good reason. Sounding like Norman Nodge, Omar S and Maurizio jamming down in a NYC basement club with muscular bass shifts and properly pumping rhythms to match. 'Polar Bear Make Nice With That Sea Lion' on the flip is a devastating take on dub house with cavernous club-ready reverbs and hypnotic chords filtered and EQ'd with the deft touch of the finest Mike Huckaby tracks.
**Special Translucent Red Vinyl Edition - limited to 100 copies only!!!** Heavyweight remix package from Echospace, pitting the ethereal space-pressure of Steve Hitchell and Rod Modell's CV313 against the claustraphobic dub menace of Kevin Martin's King Midas Sound and the layered ambience of Rafael Anton Irisarri's 'The Sight Below'. Its the King Midas version that pretty much owns this record though, more or less completely re-structuring and re-working the original into a noxious burner complete with the signature deadpan narration of R… Read more
**New from The Boats' new label - Blue vinyl in wrap-around jacket and PVC sleeve, edition of 300 copies - RIYL Fever Ray, Hype WIlliams, The Boats** 'Redemption Forest' is the beguiling debut album of recombinant pop from Andrew Hargreaves (The Boats/Tape Loop Orchestra) and Beth Roberts' new duo, The Mistys. It's also the 2nd release on The Boats' new label, Other Ideas, following their relatively radical techno diversion, 'Nomenclature'. The project serves as a vehicle for Andrew and Beth to explore concepts of pop as a subversive medium; a way to communicate ideas other than the usua… Read more
**Re-Press** Bristol's Vessel, El Kid and Jabu, part of the Young Echo collective, follow 2012's excellent Killing Sound tape for No Corners with this heavy doublepack for Blackest Ever Black. Described by the label as containing "four oblique soundsystem murderers", the EP is in some respects a bit of a side-step for BEB, edging away from their largely post-industrial and archival leanings in favour of something much more contemporary. Young Echo have had an incredible amount of press and attention over the last 18 months, testament perhaps to the rich and diverse number of projects its … Read more
On his sixth album in as many years, Lone leaves us dizzy and vajazzled with his synaesthetically enhanced palette of coloursound and rhythmelody. It's been said by someone, somewhere that's it's possibly harder to make happy music than sad music, and if that's the case, then Lone's every bit the genius everyone makes him out to be. 'Reality Testing' is simply soul drunk and and sincerely beaming with good vibes, wending a mazy path between house, boogie and hip hop rhythms gilded with the lushest synthlines and diffused into gaseous pink, orange and turquoise hues. There's a sincerity and sweet… Read more
Untimely final transmission from the late, great progenitor of Chicago Juke & Footwork. Arriving only weeks after his tragic death 'We On 1' both opens a new chapter for Wheez-ie's new Southern Belle Recordings and unfortunately closes another for dance music history. But you can fxxking forget being maudlin whilst listening to this EP which is loaded with arguably some of the baddest trax in Rashad's arsenal, from the hyper syrup anthem 'We On 1' to the uncannily ethereal vocal chops and slowfast lean of 'Do It Again' with his Teklife pals DJ Spinn and DJ Manny, and a b-l-i-n-d-i-n-g Footwork overhaul of Chaka Khan. R.I.P. Rashad. Long live Footwork.
**One-sided pressing with etching** L.I.E.S.' 5th black label drop is a kerb crawling acid experiment by three guys from Deutschland. Sandro Stebnitz, Manito Rotschild, and Dieter Fiegel apparently met whilst working a loading dock in Oldenburg, Germany and fomented a relationship over tall tales and mutual love of Gary Numan. Due to a bereavement in the family, Dieter came to own his uncle Hans' recording equipment and the trio jammed out 'Sketches I', the only document of their makeshift studio sessions together. Depending on your tolerance for BS, that story is either true or not, but we c… Read more
