ROMAN FLüGEL

Sliced Africa

Dial

Format_dot_vinyl12" // £9.99

TECHNO / HOUSE

Cat. Number: DIAL069

The venerated German producer appropriates African musics in a long-standing Teutonic tradition on his latest for Hamburg's Dial. 'Black Towers' stretches out for nearly 12 minutes of effortless, subtly shifting groove repetition and awning, earthly synth pads; 'Sliced Africa' locks down to a percolated bounce with natty keyboard melodies reminding of recent Fiedel and MMM styles, 'Spiritual Enhancer' gets off on a sort of slow-mo mix of Roedelius and old skool electro.

Uptown they come with chest-rattling subs and fierce congas for the agile junglists, plus a more footwork/jungle-styled rinse out; downtown they roll out on swollen Reese with a deeper, darkside attitude, tying up matters with a mad shiny fusion of '80s synths and dancehall inna year 3000 fashion.

"A life is A Billion Heartbeats', continues Yannis Kyriakides & Andy Moor's exploration and mining of the rich and mysterious terrain of Greek Rebetika music from early 20th century. Their first release of this project (simply entitled 'Rebetika') was for the most part taken from a live recording at the CCA, Glasgow in 2006. For that, Yannis had created processed versions of Andy's favourite Rebetika tunes which served as a matrix or palette onto which both musicians then improvised using electric guitar, live sampling and electronics.

2015 vinyl reissue of this Greensleeves classic. One of the important aspects of this album is the fact that the riddims and vocals were used extensively on Scientists milestone 'Rids The World' album. This be the jackpot and by far the best Michael Prophet LP available. Check the righteous 'Love and Unity', and 'Gunman', the perfect combination of Prophet's vocal range and the studio juggernaut of Scientist, Junjo and the Roots Radics. Highly recommended.

2015 Repress of this Greensleeves classic. Hailing from the late seventies through 1980 originally, this has a state of the art Blackbeard mix from Dennis Bovell, production of the Well Pack Band from Winston Edwards and stands as a convincing album - which goes some way to explain the advanced poularity entire dub sets went on to experience after punk’s early love affair with sufferer’s reggae. The vibes here are good, the titles great and while some of the themes may not be entirely dread, the playing is all high calibre and the one-drop dubs are very well crafted.

Cat. Number: STAUB136LP

"Staubgold presents Désarroi, the tenth album by German ensemble Kammerflimmer Kollektief. Since Thomas Weber founded the group in 1996, its work has meandered between precision and freedom, delivering music that would scorch the paper if one tried to score it. Kammerflimmer Kollektief's art is deception -- a persuasive and seductive art of disorientation and misdirection, with a lucidity and precision approaching what Robert Musil (above suspicion of being a romanticist) called "daylight mysticism." Désarroi (Disorientation), perhaps the group's wildest work, does it again: welcome back to the Kammerflimmery!"

TECHNO / HOUSE

Cat. Number: HJP075

Kassem Mosse gives Simone White's timid folk songs from 'Silver Silver' a subtle but weighty overhaul. Primed for slower, woozier times, the version of 'Flowers In May' finds a tender balance between sunken subs, wooden drum knocks and White's trip-hoppy vocal; B-side, he tends to 'In The Water Where The City Ends' with funereal chamber strings and clanqing drums reminding of the recent AFX or Cylob's 'Industrial Folk Songs', and fades to close with the chiming, off-centre rhythms of 'Long Moon'.

The original 'Akaino' sustains dancefloor pressure with heads-down groove underpinned by buzzsaw drones until a sweeter denouement of children's choir harmonies in the final third. Few Nolder resets to a swinging house groove with ruddy square bass tug and more subtle daubs of the vocal.

Cat. Number: RWINA027

"Twenty-year-old Amsterdam-born producer Ebbo Kraan presents his first EP proper. The Aletta EP is a nocturnal, eclectic meld of explorations in hip-hop sound and ambience. Like an enchanting siren, opener "Bag of Medicine" lulls the listener into its dark midst. It's a pretty intense rush, a screeching joyride of grating bass. "20" is a viscous onslaught of side-chained choppy abuse, while, "No Amount" is a distorted, ethereal mind-trip. Dreamy, refined "Pian808" slows things down -- a must for after-hours -- only to be potentially upstaged by "Thirst," the spatial and trippy closer with equal portions of low-end theory pulsating through."

Outstanding, otherworldly debut album proper by the Hype Williams collaborator known as Henny Moan and John T. Gast.
