Second of three vinyl editions from Morphosis' Morphine imprint, this one featuring two beautifully elegant, alien pieces for dance theatre, written by Philadelphia's Charles Cohen in 1989 on the extremely rare Buchla 700 synthesiser. It's hardly been heard beyond the ears of Group Motion founder Manfred Fischbeck and apparently features the only known recording of the Buchla 700 to be formally released. The A-side, 'Group Motion' is an improvised recording progressing from icy bleeps and isolated drones to pulsing, bubbling rhythms and a jazz-wise climax before flipping … Read more
Egyptrixx becomes the latest member of the Night Slugs crew to emerge from the maturation chamber dripping with futurist fluids and wielding terrifying cybernetic implants. The Canadian producer had always been one of the more alien elements of the NS team, a status borne out by his neglected 2011 LP Bible Eyes. While whatever memo almost all the label's producers got has often resulted in stylistic changes beyond recognition, Egyptrixx has retained his unique character in the chiming synths, dark chords and flair for the epic. While other ice-hot future releases of this ilk: Jam City's Cl… Read more
Kyle Hall cuts off a killer bonus round to his impressive debut album statement, The Boat Party'. On top it's a rugged, near-psychedelic funk session with the tumbled soul samples and devilishly crooked groove of 'Need Sum!' and the crafty, R&B house swing of 'Skeeter!' for the dopest cats. Downtown he's in techno mode - our favourite KMFH mode - with the virulent modular synthlines and filtered slam of '12 Doors' featuring Nas1, and a heavyweight drum machine-rocking 2k13 mix of album highlight, 'Flemmenup'. Recommended!
**Goat play all their tracks from 'World Music', live at London's Camden Electric** "In August 2012 Swedish band Goat released their debut album, World Music.The record went on to become one of the most talked about albums of the year, topping many ‘Best of 2012’ lists and the following year, the band took the album on the road. Starting off a triumphant year of shows was Goat’s performance (or Ritual as the band likes to call them) at Roadburn Festival. A ‘packed to the rafters’ performance was the perfect warm up to their first proper tour, that saw them take on the USA. Footage, audio an… Read more
Perc's Submit label follows up those smashing Einstürzende Neubauten reworks with a shocking brace of industrial mutations from Pete Swanson, Burial Hex, Prostitutes and Profligate. We're completely won over by Clay Ruby aka Burial Hex's mixture of 313-style jit and noise malevolence on 'Final Love (Feral Love Dub)' - imagine Alberich and D.I.E. on a mission - whilst Pete Swanson has a go at cleaning your lugs with the squally, scraping brutality of 'Pleasure Averse' and Prostitutes and Profligate share a flipside of sleaze and pummelling noise / techno transgressions for the freaks. It's not to be missed, ya heard?! Recommended!
Ghostly International serve a sweet addendum to Gold Panda's 'Half Of Where You Live' replete with Fort Romeau and T Hemingway remixes. Album versions of etheric house swinger 'Community' and the smudged, Dilla-wise 'Reprise' appear alongside a skinnier and extended demo and live versions, whilst Fort Romeau tempers 'Community' to a gently uplifting ambient piano house schematic and adds heady compressions and dranken R&B trills to 'Reprise' on the EP's big highlight.
Clipping the heels of their killah 'Genesis EP', Mumdance & Logos rinse off 2013 with two searing 'ardcore mutations for Tectonic. Recalibrating the genes of '93-style jungle with bootybass claps, pneumatic bass and razing mentasms, the darkcore dread of 'Legion' is tilted at the most delirious hours of the dance, whilst 'Proto' comes with a kaotic chemistry of Belgian techno hoovers, Detroit-style pads and timeless darkside swerve. Watch yer eyebrows!
*Limited Edition orange and red 180gm Vinyl housed in a tip-on sleeve, Includes a CD copy free inside* "One of the finest modern scores we at Death Waltz towers have heard in a very long time. It’s simply monsterous, a huge sounding record that references John Carpenter, Goblin, Stevlio Cipriani, late 70s prog and early 80s electronic music all the while with it’s feet firmly in the present day. The minute we heard this score we knew we had to release it."
**Hand-stamped, indivually numbered edition** Mad techno/dubstep/jungle/electronica mutations from one of the current scene's brightest and most prolific. Killwatt's 'Bring Down The Walls' does just that, darting across a dancefloor no-mans-land into 4/4 techno, moody electronica and noisy bass experiments. It's a sound he's been hinting at on recent collaborations with Kryptic Minds and a remix of Paul Mac, but never explored quite so thoroughly as this. Up top he reels between sub-heavy slammer, 'Highway Hypnosis' to the industrial abstraction of 'Backed Into A F**ked Up Recess' via … Read more
**Pulsing coldwave electronics and kosmic dream-pop. White vinyl with hand-numbered art insert and sticker. Edition of 400** "When the previously thought long lost recordings of East London synth experimentalists, Karen Novotny X emerged two years ago on The Great Pop Supplement, it had minimal synth heads everywhere scratching around for absolutely any info on this murky, mysterious trio led by one Cy Levene circa 1978. Online forums buzzed with puzzled sounding appeals, as next to nothing had been written, let alone heard by this East London trio. The resulting f… Read more
Monstrous bangers from Beau Wanzer and NJB for the shady Russian Torrent Versions. We're not 100% sure who's behind what here, but we can tell you there's some creepy, intra-dimensional machine workout on the A-side backed with two powerfully built industrial kickers reminding of Anthony Parasole's On The Corner vibes or even vintage Regis on the demonic, rattling B-side.
Shawn O'Sullivan (Civil Duty, Led Er Est, 400PPM) returns to L.I.E.S. with a grip of grubby, grinding machine workouts. Up top slows his roll to a 100bpm industro-bashment bogle on three cuts, 'Drawing Blood From A Stone', 'Ask The Boss' and 'Basilisk'. Dung below, he rides with the nasty acid wine of 'You'll Get Used To It' plus the steam-powered chugger, 'An Unbreakable Bubble' and the druggy basement tilt of 'Punish or be Damned'.
*Young Marble Giants’ Stuart Moxham’s legendary album as 'The Gist' finally given a proper reissue...* "Though lesser-known than Young Marble Giants’ output, the sole LP from Stuart Moxham’s The Gist is an essential entry in the great canon of English post-punk. As the principle composer in Young Marble Giants, Moxham honed minimal songwriting to maximal effect with the help of early electronic experimentation. He formed The Gist shortly before Young Marble Giants’ dissolution to realize experiments in sound outside his primary group’s mold and feature friends from such … Read more
**Reissue of Niblock's first ever release from 1982 housed in tip on-style jacket with insert containing liner notes, interview with the artist and score** Phill Niblock's staggering debut album 'Nothin To Look At Just A Record' is widely regarded as the drone titan's masterpiece. From what we hear, we'd cosign. It consists of two side-long pieces written in 1982 and informed by the techniques of American minimalists, La Monte Young and Tony Conrad, using carefully selected, long instrumental tones - in this case recordings of Richard Lainhart and Richard Kelly at SUNY i… Read more
**180g vinyl** Remastered 180g audiophile reissue of the first transmission released by the BBC's influential Radiophonic Workshop, way back in 1968. It focuses on the work of three of Maida Vale-based studio's staff, Delia Derbyshore, John Baker, and David Cain, and it's worth heeding their rather stern warning that "this record has been produced with the intention of entertaining rather than informing: the items chosen do not necessarily represent a survey of the music created at the BBC Radiophonic Workshop", got it?! Using tapes, electronic oscillators and concrète… Read more
**180g vinyl** Remastered 180g audiophile vinyl reissue of a seminal and influential BBC Radiophonic workshop side originally issued in 1975. Simply titled, 'The Radiophonic Workshop', it documents the foundational work of the BBC's creative service, ranging from complete background scores of electronic music for radio and television productions, through sound for poetry and science fiction to signature tunes and experimental compositions. Thanks to the work of Dick Mills, Paddy Kingsland, Desmond Briscoe Malcolm Clarke, Glynis Jones, Roger Limb and Roger Yeoman-Clar… Read more
One of 2013's most exciting producers follows exemplary issues for Leisure System , Lit City Trax and his Lost Codes label with two uniquely ductile riddims for Ramp. They're both ghostly, mesmerising things, siphoning from and augmenting essential traces of grime, dubstep and that vapourous sound with reductionist efficiency. On 'M' he meditates in cool, glassy cyberspace with flitting synth voices suspended above plunging, precisely punchy subs and razor-cut hi-hats synched with exquisite swagger, whereas 'Secrets' feels like everything's dragged down an octave with the sensation of rolling aqu… Read more
**Edition of 300** "Electronic arts pioneer, activist and researcher Konrad Becker (aka Monoton) teams up with vocalist Sela for a project with a mission: unveiling Operations in a shadow world of mediated realities. Linking 21st century technology to ancient communication practices in several directions at once the hypermedia wizard and the young Viennese singer celebrate the powers of media over matter. Sound becomes a weapon against operation systems of containment and to be buried alive by technologies of symbolic domination. Operations not only gives a voice to rad… Read more
*First Time this album has been available on Vinyl* Omar Souleyman is the impassioned singer and leader of the Omar Souleyman Band, one of the gleaming jewels in the Sublime Frequencies crown. His 'Highway To Hassake' album for SF released in 2007 was easily one of the records of that year, rousing acclaim from The Wire, various corners of the blogosphere and ourselves over its shockingly exotic sound and direct emotive rush blended into the ultimate party music. 'Dabke 2020' follows on from that seminal set with a diverse display of Souleyman's repeto… Read more
Class tech-house session from Sei A backed with strong Breach remix. 'Make It Work' slings razor sharp, metallic dub chords and a hydraulic subbass shook down with frisky hi-hats for the swingers; 'I'll Take You There' rides a plump but light-footed square bass with scissoring hi-hats practically guaranteed to enhance your dance. Flipside Breach extends and teases out the bouncing chords and slamming bass of 'Make It Work' with a slinkier sense of deferred gratification.
*Vinyl Edition* James Ferraro takes inspiration from "the things I see" in his 'NYC, Hell 3:AM' dystopia. The follow-up to 'Sushi' is a wry reflection of his locale, "a surreal psychological sculpture of American decay and confusion" evoking imagery of "rats, metal landscape, toxic water, junkie friends, HIV billboards, evil news, luxury and unbound wealth, exclusivity, facelifts, romance, insane police presence and lonely people... all against the sinister vastness of Manhattan's alienating skyline." Of course, this being James Ferraro, his perspective is uncannily incisive and riddled… Read more
**180g vinyl** 'Wunderland' is a dizzying example of 1983-84 digital synth exploration conducted by Ata Tak co-founder, Kurt Dahlke aka Pyrolator. As you may imagine froman album adorned in surrealist caricatures of mutant, hybrid animals frolicking and playing instruments, the music in 'Wunderland' is more than a touch eccentric. It was created by NDW pioneer Dahlke after moving to New York from Wuppertal in North Western Germany, looking for inspiration amidst the madness of a megatropolis fully adopting the plugged-in sounds of electro after early hip hop. But 'Wunderland' is light years away… Read more
**140g White Vinyl edition. Includes colour insert with still from the film and liner notes** Following the success of their 'Drive' OST release, Invada give another classic cliff Martinez score the deluxe vinyl treatment. His backing to the 2002 Steven Soderbergh remake of Tarkovsky's masterpiece is a beautifully crafted, delicate thing, full of weightless electronics and sumptuous string arrangements lending a reserved, ambiguous atmosphere to the film's themes of psychological confusion and stunning cinematography. OK, maybe it's not quite as great as Eduard Artemiev's definitive OST for the original 'Solaris', but it is a fine piece of work, nonetheless.

Boya trails last years' appearance on Opal Tapes' 'Cold Holiday' compilation with three cuts of murky, psychoactive house and techno for Mister Saturday Night. He's conceived one of the finest additions to the dialogue between house, noise and lo-fi electronics you'll hear this year. 'That's Us' is a really sweet dancefloor dreamer meshing celestial harps and voices with grubby drums and bass in the strangest, weightless atmosphere, whilst 'The Idler' comes off like some Ron Hardy or Jamal Moss disco looper that's been steeped in a vat of GHB for twenty years. B-sideit gets better yet with the massi… Read more
Mordant Music and Ekoplekz reconvene their eMMplekz duo with the incisive observations and blue dub noise of 'Your Crate Has Changed'. The Baron continues to gain confidence as the dark interpreter of a twisted English psyche, making hilarious and cuttingly bleak commentary on everything from syrups to the postal service, sh*t pubs and wi-fi, all set to some of Nick Edwards' craftiest electro-dub backings.
Debut single of drag pop and ambient trap from hotly-tipped Filipino producer on XL/Abeano. As is kinda the norm for a bedroom producer in 2013, Eyedress crafted the 'Supernatural' EP with Fruity Loops on his dad's old laptop PC and hits up a sound somewhere between Salem's debut (only?) album and Grimes-on-qaaludes. Best to check the super saccharine electronics and dreamy vox of 'Biolumine' and the tense, whirring trap beats and electro discord of 'No Competition' for highlights.
*bEEdEEgEE is the performing alias of Brian DeGraw of Gang Gang Dance* "SUM/ONE’ is his debut record as a solo artist. Brian’s immersion in art and music has covered the spectrum of performance, sound and visual mediums. Well regarded on the underground New York art scene, DeGraw has shown his paintings, sculptures and drawings around the world, both independently and as part of the James Fuentes Gallery stable in NYC, and has collaborated with the likes of Harmony Korine, Rita Ackerman and Doug Aitken.
