**PAN manage to coax out the first new Errorsmith release in 11 years - and in collab with Mark Fell no less - making for one of the deadliest and best twelves you'll hear this year. Vinyl mastered and cut by Rashad at D&M, artwork by Kathryn Politis & Bill Kouligas** PAN plays home to the return of pioneering composer Erik Wiegand a.k.a. Errorsmith - in collaboration with anterior artist Mark Fell, no less - for his first release in eleven years! Technically, it's not the first time that these two have worked together - Fell put Wiegand's Razor software to stunning use in the … Read more
**Hand-stamped white label edition of 300 individually numbered copies** Weight-watchers special request from Logos for his and Mumdance's Different Circles label, backed with a blistering remix by their bandmate from The Sprawl, Shapednoise. The 'Glass EP' is perhaps the most extreme example of their self-coined "weightless" sound, communing the ghosts of UK hardcore, noise and ambient electronica in a dread-filled quartet of mindful killers. Opening with the pensile mesh of smashing foley, lashing mentasms and scything breakbeat impulses in Logos' cyber-dub, 'Glass', Shapednoise wrecks the thing wi… Read more
**Wraparound artwork. Edition of 300. Massively recommended if you’re into Arca, TCF, Lotic, Total Freedom** We're over the moon to present the vinyl debut of Elysia Crampton with 'Moth / Lake' thru Boomkat Editions. Formerly known by the moniker, E + E, this single marks the first chapter of her Shenandoah series, "a concept work that explores Virginian American history and brownness beyond culture, as geology - as mud, dirt, and mineral." Breaking with the artist's highly influential and formerly sample-rich arrangements, the material on both sides is entirely, uniquely original. With th… Read more
The modular maestro presents a luminous 4th side of original Buchla soundscapes for Morphine. Recorded in Berlin in September 2014 and incorporating production help and assistance from label boss Rabih Beaini aka Morphosis, 'Brother I Prove You Wrong' speaks with a sharper clarity and diction than Cohen's trio of archival recordings circa 1976-1989 already reissued by the same label to much acclaim. They're sharp as a tack, following sleek lines and rendered with a punch and sense of space and momentum which possibly betrays a return influence from the contemporary operators … Read more
*Vinyl Edition Finally Available* Alva Noto beautifully exchanges austerity for cinematographic lushness with the remarkably widescreen 3rd volume in his 'Xerrox' series. Inspired by private, formative influences such as 'La Isla Misteriosa y el Capitán' - based on Jules Verne's 'The Mysterious Island' - and Tarvosky's screen adaptation of 'Solaris', he uses the self-designed Xerrox software to transpose early, ingenuous feelings of awe and wonder into innovative, intimate atmospheres and dynamic soundscapes. In keeping with the series' focus on "using the process of copying as a basis", and … 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
**Extremely limited remastered vinyl reissue of the much sought after Swans debut EP. Originally released on Labor Records in 1982. Includes 12" x 12" lyric sheet insert** Bit of a must have, this: Swans debut record, originally issued on Labor Records in 1982, now reissued in conjunction with Mute a generation later. Sonically located at some distance from their current praxis, Swans self-titled maiden zinger emerged as one of the leanest, meanest from the early '80s No wave milieu, resetting rock music with a rude ounce of bounce in the trunk backed by a probing feel for the textures and dynamics o… Read more
Rabih Beaini (Morphosis) and Nick Manasseh chime in sterling reworks of an exotic disco dream from Chris Menist & Maft Sai's crack Thai funk unit. The Paradise Bangkok Molam International Band head up the session with an original hybrid of fizzing, Arthur Russell-esque disco groove and mesmerising Thai melody in 'Kwang Noi Chaolay' taken from their '21st Century Molam' album. On the remix buttons, Nick Manasseh picks apart its seams with deft disco-dub FX to sound even more like some long-lost Dinosaur L experiment, leaving the inimitable Rabih Beaini to boil o… Read more
*Limited Edition Re-Press* Proper mindblowing deep house music from DJ Sprinkles + Mark Fell featuring Tony Benn (R.I.P) for Comatonse. More than two years since their union on the 'Complete Spiral' EP (C.021), which notably placed N.U.M. leader Arthur Scargill on a New York-style deep house groove, they reprise that formula to spellbinding degrees on 'Fresh Insights EP 1'. In a knowing nod to Larry Heard and countless other producers deployment of *that* MLK speech, they ally a rousing Tony Benn speech with a subtly arousing deep house groove in the 10 minute 'Fresh', mat… Read more
*Ships Friday* *Includes download code* Holly Herndon presents an incisive 3rd album of dance-pop deconstruction couched in heavy concepts relating to contemporary hyperreality for 4AD. Flanked by fellow modern artists such as Amnesia Scanner, Amanda DeBoer Bartlett, Spencer Longo and Mat Dryhurst, the Tennessee-raised, Berlin-skooled and San Francisco-based doctorate student has realised her most vivid, elaborate treatise on the surveillance state, systemic inequality and electronic fantasy with 'Platform'. Catalysed by the intention to create a new music which better represents our now non-… Read more
**Incredible new album from Type - a study in bass tones massively recommended if you’re into Earth, Sunn 0))) or Phill Niblock. Edition of 500. Initial copies on clear wax** Type suck us in head first with Retribution Body's blooming black mass of acoustic drone alchemy, 'Aokigahara'. Known to his pals and employers at Boston's Berklee College as world class acoustic technician Matthew Azevedo, Retribution Body is the very occasional moniker for his musical exploits, revealing a rarified grasp of low end frequency manipulation on a par with the likes of Earth, Sunn 0))) or Phill Niblock… Read more
**Edition of 550 housed in folded Pantone A2 poster with gold hotline sticker** Batu dials in two shots of technoid Bristol murk for the excellent Hotline Recordings. A-side posits the abstracted 'ardcore shapes of 'Numen', hammering out sullen subs patterns under a swarm of ricochet reverbs and hypnotic drones to sound like a moment of hard-faced ecstasy stretched out to some seven minutes of gauzy grey dancefloor mass. B-side, 'Cazz' brings the drums inna pendulous roller coming off like a de-glazed UKF riddim, all swaggering groove with a frictional, oxidised dub aesthetic.
*White Vinyl Re-press in a new sleeve - limited copies!* Well, this could very well be our favourite record on the PAN label yet. It has a concept so brilliant and simple we can't quite believe it hasn't been done before, taking the burning embers, breakdowns and ambient interludes off classic Jungle mixtapes and re-assembling them into a ghostly ambient-not-ambient mix that's at once hugely nostalgic and totally forward thinking - so so good* 'Diversions 1994-1996' is Lee Gamble's chimeric recollection of jungle's golden era. Using samples sourced solely from his cache of jungle mixt… 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.
'Fridge Trax Plus' compiles Editions Mego's pivotal first ever release with the successive 'Live and Final Fridge' to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the label's existence. Back in 1995, along with the output of Warp and Sähkö, these trax marked a bold progression of electronic music towards the convergence of dance music dynamics and experimental abstraction, paving the way for a whole generation of artists to follow in their wake. Transforming recordings made inside a fridge into humming ambient drones, swarming noise clusters and sparking techno pulses, they're genuinely gro… Read more
Pure icy grime burns from Iglew with a killer debut on Mr. Mitch's Gobstopper. As he admits, Iglew only recently experienced bass from a proper soundsystem, and, as such, approaches the genre from a relative outsider perspective. No matter though, as he's clearly developed an acute melodic instinct in the absence of physical pressure, and has clearly caught up with soundsystem dynamics since. Anyway, his 'Urban Myth' EP is straight up killer; a slick lesson in economy of production and emotion, with heart-in-mouth effect in the title track's weightless zone of flutes and slyding squares contrasting… Read more
Dennis Bovell performs an outright dub murder 'pon Glasgow's always-brilliant Golden Teacher at The Green Door. Bovell reduces a new cut, 'Instigator' to a heaving 100bpm mass of prickling, rocksteady drum machine pulse, spooling keys and dread vox destined for the heads of the rebels in the best dances. Flipside, 'Like A Hawk' (lifted from their 'Do Not Go Gentle Into That Good Night' 12") gets shook up to a 111bpm patter, coming off like a hydro-charged update of Carl Craig's refit for the Congos - one of our favourite all time 12"s. Totally indispensable gear.
*New from Root Strata - a huge recommendation if you're into Pye Corner Audio, John Carpenter or early Depeche Mode* Perfectly realised homage to OG '80s VHS library music from Jared Blum as VisionHeat. Root Strata had the pleasure of picking out 19 pieces for 'The Chosen Themes - Program I', ranging from hi-NRG adrenalizers to ominous 'ludes and swanky electro-disco showcasing Blum's remarkable breadth of styles and a carefully assembled aesthetic wisely nodding to the likes of Carpenter/Howarth, Goblin's Claudio Simonetti, Klaus Schulze, Harold Faltemeyer and those other gu… Read more
**Clear vinyl, includes two extra tracks and a download code redeemable from the label** Invada present a collection of unreleased instrumentals and analogue experiments by The KVB on vinyl for the first time. Originally issued thru the band's own Flesh Tapes in a super limited edition of 100 cassettes, 'Mirror Bein' serves to reveal another side of the duo, mixing the apocalyptic synth appeal of T2 and John Carpenter with a throbbing cyberpunk techno attitude in eight iterations. Guitars and vocals are largely subservient to drum machines and synths, resulting a sound more akin to Beppu's rec… Read more
*Limited Edition Re-Press* DJ Sprinkles serves alternate, killer mixes of his massive 'Fresh Insights' session with Mark Fell (and Tony Benn). The future-classic B-side, 'Fresh' is given a slinkier rub-down by the Tokyo-based artist, propping *that* rousing speech by Socialist firebrand Tony Benn on a subtly reshuffled groove that surely marks up as one of the biggest deep house curveballs since, oh, at least their 'Complete Spiral' EP starring Arthur Scargill in 2012. Flipside, 'Insights' is also given the alternate DJ Sprinkles mix treatment, shyin… Read more
"Jim O’Rourke is ready to talk to you again with his first pop album since 2001. ‘Simple Songs’ is an amazing record of musical song entertainment because Jim O’Rourke knows what he wants and how to get it. The range of sounds and songs that have turned Jim’s head are numerous enough to have crushed together into something that is unmistakably his. The music is played so immaculately by so many instruments and most of them by the creator’s hand. ‘Simple Songs’ was worked over, from source material to finished mix, for five years or more now. Jim’s writing is rooted in the approach of ‘Insi… Read more
**Fluro Orange vinyl** Pye Corner Audio's unheimlich analog disco finds the clammiest crevice to lurk in Death Waltz's brilliant original vinyl series. His follow-up to 'The Black Mist' EP for Front And Follow plots out an addictive Carpenter-esque course of prickling arpeggios and adrenalizing chord progressions at a sluggish sub-100bpm tilt across the A-side's 'Stars Shine Like Eyes', presenting one of the most layered and dramatic cold cuts in his cabinet. B-side, 'Quasar II' unfolds a more minimalist trip to the darkside with a dry-iced intro precipitat… Read more
'Antigravity' is a sui generis invocation of the rarest, compelling order coaxed from the French avant-garde by Blackest Ever Black. Around the locus of cult trumpeter Jac Berrocal - who famously appeared in the NWW list and collaborated with Steven Stapleton - David Fenech and Vincent Epplay unfold a deliciously psychedelic mystery steeped in the esoteric traditions of musique concrète, dub and jazz, and played with a DIY post-punk freedom. Whilst best heard deep in the night with lights low and something burning, ironically enough, it's gotta be the most colour… Read more
**Includes multi-format download code** Welcome return from Christelle Gualdi a.k.a. Stellar Om Source with a quartet of razor-cut acid jams for RVNG INTL. Putting a keen spin on original Belgian, Detroit and Chicago rave styles, her restless 'Nite-Glo' trax are heavily infectious dancefloor exercises, whether emulating OG Phuture with a lick of extra-effective rimshot tickles in 'Sudden', or ripping like some Jack Rabbit joint in the slamming 'Never', whilst 'Live' proves her efficiency with Beltram-esque mentasm techno and 'Sure' fires like a choice Eric van den Broek number.
*Absolutely incredible album - this is the definitive remastered edition with extensive liner notes* In the pantheon of electronic music Terry Riley's 'A Rainbow In Curved Air' adorns a pedestal front and centre. Taking inspiration from Hindustani classical music and the jazz techniques of Bill Evans and John Coltrane before him, Riley's minimalist psychedelic masterpiece can claim a direct influence on generations of musicians ever since, from the likes of Brian Eno at one end of the scale, right through to Oneohtrix Point Never or Emeralds at the other. This "definit… Read more
Stephen O'Malley's Ideologic Organ presents an expression of survival in the face of extinction with When's elaborate concrète tribute to The Black Death, or Svartedauen, which wiped out two-thirds of the Norwegian population within a few years after 1349 AD. Prompted by a series of grim drawings on the subject by Theodor Kittelson - one of Norway's most renowned artists, who is also responsible for a number of classic Burzum album artworks - 'The Black Death' was, perhaps understandably, a firm favourite with Norway's burgeoning Black Metal scene upon release in the summer of 1992, offering a … Read more
*Remastered and Reworked 2LP Edition of the limited edition Cassette released in 2014 on Demdike Stare’s DDS Imprint. Initial copies on Green and White Vinyl, mastered and cut by Matt Colton, includes an instant download of the album dropped into your account* Mica Levi more or less owned 2014 with the release of that astonishing soundtrack to Jonathan Glazer’s ‘Under the Skin’, followed by this hour long album-cum-mixtape for Demdike Stare’s DDS imprint which was released at the end of the year and sold out in a flash. It has now been reworked for… Read more
*Includes a beautiful oversized (11" x 11") 20-page booklet with liner note essays and photos of the band* HTRK reissue their debut album proper, following on from last year's career defining "Psychic 9-5 Club". Marry Me Tonight was originally released in 2009 and provides a first glimpse of a band making use of analogue electronics and shards of post-rock influenced guitar and vocals. 'Kiss Before The Fall' sounds like a modern-day Venus In Furs with its thudding drone-rock sensibilities, the crisp, unconditioned drum machine linking up with sustained guitar tones in a robotic VU-in… Read more
DMX Krew riffs on classic acid mutations with '5 Ways 2 Jack' for Jerome Hill's Super Rhythm Trax. It's a party from the crust to the run-out, checking off big-box-little-box styles with 'Vicious Bleebz' and proper Yorkshire bleep rufige with 'Bleepology'. Harder heads will be all over the cascading 303s and warehouse bang ov 'Up 'n Down', and we can't wait to catch the Lil Louis-gone-Bashment pressure of 'Ragga Clash' in a club soon.
The London/Bristol axis churns up a military grade bomb from Mumdance, Pinch and Riko Dan. 'Big Slug' holds tight to a dread UK sound, all city-at-night gloom licked with apocalyptic intro and cantering bashment groove streaked by hellish metallic apparitions and Riko's yardie bark. The instrumental 'Lucid Dreaming' opens more hyperreal weightless dimensions framed by pendulous roto-rimshots and desiccated bass hits closer to gabber than grime but with the discipline of modern minimalism, anticipating a tangible evil that never comes but constantly lurks at the periphery, like some sort of sublime panic attack - summing up the vibe of 'ardcore UK dancefloors. Tip!
Bass Clef does his bright and melodic modular dance thing for Belfast's Rudimentary Records. 'Humming Blurs' sprawls the A-side with chiming, avian synth tones ruffled by stuttered and collapsing techno-dubbed drum chicanery for the IDM sweetboys and girls.On the other side, 'Chanson Du Ricochet' charges up a freakish, sputtering sort of alien techno deviation wrapped in shredded ribbons of salty modular scree and amorphous noise.
*Limited Edition White Vinyl pressing* With production work included from Thomas Knack (Opiate), Matthew Herbert, Matmos and Console, and even a sample lifted off Oval’s groundbreaking Systemisch LP, Vespertine is without doubt one of Bjork's most loved albums.
*Ships Friday* *Limited edition coloured vinyl, includes the 30 minute bonus 12" EP "Drives For Pedestrians"* Pysch-rock on Thrill Jockey in the vein of Acid Mothers-meets-Hawkwind. A week on from the issuing of their ace four-track LP, Dead, here's White Hills eponymous Thrill Jockey album - a tremendous slab of Hawkwind style bludgeoning psychedelia and grunge-era riffing, with a good measure of electronic strangeness thrown into the bargain. In addition to immense, over-compressed Acid Mothers-style rockers like 'Counting Sevens', this is a band that isn't shy of stretching out i… Read more
**Gatefold double LP** Arch techno-conceptualist Thomas Brinkmann presents his most intriguing solo outing yet with the abstract sound structures of 'What You Hear (Is What You Hear)' for Editions Mego. In an attempt to detach himself and his art from any concrete descriptors and also camouflage the intent behind these tracks, Brinkmann offers a greyscale of electronic fundamentals largely devoid of his patented minimalist rhythm trickery or discernible melody, allowing the music to do the talking and make us poor sods work harder to describe what he's doing. Thing i… Read more
*Limited edition vinyl comes with exclusive ‘The Moonlandingz EP’ 12”. The LP also includes a copy of the album on CD free inside* "The Eccentronic Research Council’s fabulous fourth album, ‘Johnny Rocket, Narcissist & Music Machine… I’m Your Biggest Fan’ is written from the persuasive point of view of an obsessional fan of a (fictional?) local band - The Moonlandingz, who gig around the (fictional?) South Yorkshire district of Valhalla Dale. The album also sees The Eccentronic Research Council team up with Lias Saoudi and Saul Adamczewski of South London’s The Fat White Family, who ably play the role of The Moonlandingz."
**Hardcore, FWD dance music from two leading sound artists. Initial copies on translucent red wax. Edition of 500, Mastered and cut by Matt Colton** Mark Fell and Gábor Lázár ratchet the game with their razor-sharp debut collaboration, 'The Neurobiology of Moral Decision Making'. As promised in the wake of Gábor's acclaimed vinyl debut, 'EP16', the duo have colluded on a full set of ten tracks, ranging from short synapse bursts thru to an uncannily emotive 12 minute masterpiece on the closing side. As the 10th release on The Death of Rave, it demonstra… Read more
**One-sided vinyl. 300 copies only - don’t sleep** Super limited pressing from the cheeky berts at Diagonal, who genuinely know no limits. For this one-off pressing they pull a proper bogey with this 'For Promotional Use Only' killer, turning a seminal pop-techno anthem into one of the fiercest, fugged-up things you'll find in 2015. Sourced from youtube and mastered for wax, it fillets the ass out of a definitive '90s ohrwurm, slopping and teasing the original hook and vocal out to 9 minutes of slow-banging swagger bound to trigger utter carnage in the club. It's canny big and bruising and demands to be played by daring DJs at peak time for maximum mess.
Out of stock
Detroit R&B, the FXHE way, from Omar-S and pals. On top, 'Ah Nother One' is a dope paean to promiscuity sunged by James Garcia and set to grubbing bass synth and scratchy drums with that funk only Omar-S can do. Down below, 'Faahhuuuuuu' plays out a blue swing vibe with smudged chords and crack'd drums with a despondent vocal by John F.M., who recenbtly appeared on the label with 'Where My Roots Lie'. Dope photos on the sleeve a glimpse of the FXHE facilities.
Nico Jaar serves his 1st single in four years with the moody/pastoral ambient techno tones of 'Nymphs II'. In the time that's elapsed since then, he's started and finished the Darkside project and closed his Clown + Sunset label to concentrate on Other People, which has revealed itself a fruitful endeavour with some 30 releases since 2013. These tracks, penned in NYC between 2011 and 2015 reassert his position between modern composition and dancefloor music: 'The Three Sides of Audrey and Why She's All Alone Now' moves thru the distinct movements, sweeping from ghostly pastoral shades to knac… Read more
*Black Vinyl with printed inner sleeve and a 'do not cross’ obi strip* "Death Waltz Recording Company has yet another ace up its sleeve with the soundtrack to 2014's best action films, Adam Wingard's THE GUEST, with a musical score by Steve Moore. Critically acclaimed, the “guest” in question is David, a young man who lands on the doorstep of the Peterson family claiming to be a comrade of their son, who was killed while on tour in Afghanistan, But while David appears to a model citizen, the family daughter discovers several clues that make her wonder “Just who is this man?” Just like the film… Read more
**Housed in hand-stitched and stamped sleeve** Maft Sai & Chris Menist pluck out another pair of scorching, original Thai funk zingers for the latest Paradise Bangkok. Up top, Waipod Petchsuphan's tuff-but-playful take on the novelty song from Italian sex comedy, 'When Men Carried Clubs and Women Played Ding-Dong', set to louche, Ethio-style horns and loose, rough R&B drums. Down below, the unknown Super Ranat Band's wiggly, clattering cover version of 'A-Bi-Ni-Ba' cut from a library LP, full of skittish xylophone riffs, searing organ and darting breakbeats bound to set the 'floor alight.
Ace Textured house from Parisian, Dangkhoa Chau a.k.a Antinote's D.K, appearing here as 45 ACP for adopted label, L.I.E.S. The 'Change Of Tone' LP dispenses six tracks of ace, washed-out grooves ranging from the occluded dream sequence of 'The Bridge' to sub-100 bpm Detroit jacker, 'Seventh Circle' or woozy boogie in 'Ground to Ground', thru to the coruscating thumb piano twang of 'Hidden Garden' and relatively caffeinated deep house swing with 'Double Cross'. Good stuff...
Rabit makes a crucial contribution to the current discourse between US and UK club/grime styles with his stunning debut for Tri Angle. Arriving hot on the heels of 'Heterocetera' by another Houston-rooted producer, Lotic, the 'Baptizm' EP presents Rabit's smartest, most concise productions to date; 4 tracks, just over 10 minutes of crystalline, piquant electronics feeding off elements of classical composition, instrumental grime and computer music. Much like Arca, he's a master of reduction and efficiency for maximalist effect, whether cramming lucid, violent detail into every millisecond of music or … Read more
Morphosis' Morphine Records blow minds with a remarkable slab of experiments by Indonesia's Rully Shabara and Wukir Suryadi a.k.a. Senyawa. Found in orbit between traditional Javanese folk music and the kind of sui generis ritual musics of Ghedalia Tazartes or Keiji Haino, 'Menjadi' is a captivating showcase of the duo's unhindered improvisatory instinct and unique range of extended vocal, from possessed chants to guttural droning and upper-register ululations, all matched by a deft instrumental techniques on the self-made bambuwukir - an amplified bamboo zither. Recorded and subtly produced by Rabi… 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 electronica with a gush… Read more
**Clear Vinyl - *Includes digital download voucher redeemable from the label. ncludes vinyl exclusive ambient suite** 'Dumb Flesh' is the ecstatic new album from F**k Buttons' Benjamin Power in Blanck Mass mode. His 2nd album in this guise after 2011's eponymous debut, it retains much of the fizzy noise harmonics and thrills of his duo with Andrew Hung, but channels a more direct dancefloor and pop attitude, 'Dumb Flesh' isn't quite techno, noise or post-rock, but rather a distillation of all their affective memes boiled up, reduced and smeared across these eight tracks. T… Read more
Blawan returns with 'Warm Tonal Touch', a cold-hearted modular techno assault on the senses. It's also the first release on his Teresc label and represents a scything new streak in his oeuvre harnessing the maximalist might of modular electronics. As with any instrument, it's only as good as the artist's imagination and intentions, and, whilst other operators manage to make their machines sound frankly boring, Blawan manages to animate his discipline with visceral force and effect. A-side unloads the lip-bitingly brutal wallop and noise of 'Talatone' plus a clattering, dissonant jacker entit… Read more
