Cat. Number: Type120

*Vinyl Edition of 500 copies, first 200 pressed on Gold Wax, mastered and cut by Matt Colton* Marc Richter is a bit of a musical chameleon, operating at the cusp of experimental music for many years at the helm of the Dekorder label and via his excellent Black To Comm project. His last album for the Type label, 2009’s excellent 'Alphabet 1968’ perhaps didn't quite get the attention it undoubtedly deserved, but it still stands out as one of the most oddly memorable drone-ambient albums we’ve heard this last decade, vaguely tapping into the Hauntological zeitgeist of the day b… Read more

Lars T C F Holdhus follows one of the very best releases of the new millenium so far, the 'Untitled' tape for YYAA, with another cryptic future-shock, his 1st for Liberation Technologies. Continuing a trajectory away from the calculated dance mash-ups of his now-defunct Cracksmurf alias, this project and mini-album is based on a whole other algorithmic strategy, rendering densely coded formulae into utterly mind-boggling and synaesthetically affective compositions. Once you've heard his music and done a little research into his academic background and visual practice - he studied at Frankfurt's f… Read more

Lawrence returns with a new album for Mule Musiq, produced on the road over the last couple of years and then edited back in his backyard studio in hamburg. It’s a sweetly ambient affair in the fine tradition of classic Artificial Intelligence productions, with the title track itself providing a knowing nod to the iconic Selected Ambient Works material. Elsewhere, 'Nowhere Is A Place’ harks black to classic B12 and early Black Dog productions, while ‘Simmer’ situates itself somewhere between the sort of thing the 12k label were releasing back in the mid noughties and Pete Namlook’s most h… Read more

From the moody chug of ‘Greater Antilles VIP’ - appearing in its original unedited glory - to Lustman’s own bruk beatdown version ‘Do Me’ (“This one is for the kids” he says), the palette here is as rich and diverse as on ‘In The Wild’.

Predictably, the resulting collection is nothing short of brilliant. Typically eccentric, melodious, atmospheric and bristling with interesting ideas, Cosmic Vibrations delves deeper into Ruscha's archives and comes up with gold.

"After Chris Clark had passed some of Gajeks sheer endless output over to Modeselektor, quite a few listening sessions followed. Ranging from postrocky electronica to complex and moody renderings of intricate introverted beat structures to a mutant dance music, a whole audioscape had to be discovered. There were songs and tracks and experiments there, morphed vocals and reverberated non human instruments, complex percussion patterns and sweet athmospheres, but in all these different paths and moods, a penchant for working with a leitmotif could be traced.

'Faith In Strangers’ was written and produced between January 2013 and June 2014, and was edited and sequenced in late July this year. Making use of on an array of instruments, field recordings, found sounds and vocal treatments, it’s a largely analogue variant of hi-tech production styles arcing from the dissonant to the sublime.

It's arguably a pinnacle of the label's sustained attack since emerging in 2013, due in large part to The Haxan Cloak's shocking render of 'HTH020'. In the course of nearly eleven minutes, the original is hard-panned for gold, sweeping from stereo-strafing concrète dynamics into a staggering display of head-compressing delays and chest-bursting post-rock/metal dynamic… Read more

Portland, Oregon's BAT notches up his 2nd vinyl release with the murky post techno of his 'Neon Razor Chain' for Left_Blank. For the past few years he's become a bit of a cult concern in the hardware-fetishising tape scene and beyond, drawing favourable comparisons with everyone from Basic House to Prostitutes, Vessel and Container. Revving up the buzzsaw grine and haunted space of title track 'Neon Razor Chain', he gets grittier with the blown-out, tetchy techno charge of 'Strobic' in the front, before inverting the formula to crushed dub styles with 'Jackal Code' and more wayward, plonging ambient dub in 'Digi Hex' and 'Anti Code'.
