JAZZ / FUSION

Cat. Number: ALE003

**Screen-printed jacket, colour inners sleeve** The impeccable Arc Light Editions illuminate this spellbinding and little-known bit of spiritual jazz improv recorded in Finland, 1982. Following their reissues of crucial, long-out-of-print Arthur Russell and Marshall Ingram sides, 'Trio' fans further outwards into liminal jazz zones richly informed by traditional Indian arrangements and Japanese influence. It's a result of the trio's long hours spent at the rehearsal space honing a uniquely open-minded, groove-some sound from gongs, home-built synthesisers, finger pianos, vibraphone… Read more

A-Tranquility

Unknown Precept

Format_dot_vinyl12" // £7.99

TECHNO / HOUSE

Cat. Number: PRECEPT003

Maoupa Mazzocchetti debuts with the sleazy darkwave allure of 'A-Tranquility' for Unknown Precept, who previously delivered 'The Black Ideal' compilation of noise/techno hybrids. This 12" sees them head down a narcotically sexy avenue of modern hypnobeat, working with a salty, writhing aesthetic highly comparable with your JTC, Traxx or Beau Wanzer bits. A-side delivers three cuts stretched between Carpenter-esque chimes a bubbling jakbeat with lashings of spring reverb and ghoulish chord progressions and B-side comes with the hench industrial swagger of the Skinny Puppy-esque 'Coexistence' and the killer EBM churn of 'Vernacular'. Strong twelve this.

Rave-lustin' heavy house trax from Innershades for one of Holland's finest imprints. A quartet of cuts pay tribute to that pivotal late '80s/early '90s nexus of New Beat, Detroit techno and UK bleep, burning up technoid chords, warehouse booming kicks and aerobic mystic motifs from the fierce but stylish jack of 'CVS' thru the hypnotic bleep 'n bass groover, 'Momentum', to the KMS at the AB vibes of 'Dark Society'.

Simoncino projects four lushly impressionistic visions of NYC Nu Groove styles with 'Dreams Of Konders' for Creme Organization. This is some classy, near psychedelic gear, rolling in with the mystic mix of Carpenter-esque synth and tribal drum machine flux in 'Meggaton', giving the hips something elliptical with the Afro-debted patterns and spacey dubbing of the glorious title track, and also nodding to Sun Ra with the solar-energised B-side boosters, 'Pyramids' and 'Space Is The Place'.

TECHNO / HOUSE

Cat. Number: PN019

Prime Numbers reset to a slower roll with ace electro trax by Modini, Nick Sinna, and Hakim Murphy, backed with darker Detroit remix by Luke Hess. Edinburgh's Neil Landstrumm and Alan Parley aka Modini plug in a smart take on OG Belgian New Beat/EBM gear from SA 42 et al, whilst reformed junglist Nick Sinna can't hide his roots with the rugged electro-dub swing of 'Come Again', and Chicago's Hakim Murphy presents the deviant electro-acid bubble of 'Synth Work'. Luke Hess perfectly complements the vibe with a brooding 313 version of Nick Sinna's cut. The best PN in ages? We reckon so.

Reissue of the lush and melodic Detroit/Dutch techno album by Conforce.

His sound takes the most florid elements of Detroit operators like Carl Craig or Derrick May and fuses them with a European dub-techno sensibility to place him in the recent tradition of Convextion. From the rumbling, bass-driven lowland topography of 'Subtraction' to the synth coralled aquatic scapes of 'Sonar Conversations' to the exquisite… Read more

Across eight tracks of ambient techno both brooding and tumultuous, Haslam unravels a narrative on overpopulation and its potential environmental ramifications inspired by the Borges quote the album title references.

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
