MODERN CLASSICAL / AMBIENT

**180g gatefold vinyl reissue** Timely return for this foundational slab of ambient pondering from Brian Eno and Robert Fripp, then of Roxy Music and King Crtimson, respectively. In both extended meditations, written between late summer '72 and summer '73, the august elders of British experimental music laid a blueprint for kosmic electronics and psychedelic guitar music which has been adopted countless times by legion antecedents searching among the stars.

Classically-skooled solo debut of deep house romance from Chicago's Aaron "Fit" Siegel, who was last heard on the 'Tonite' 12" with Omar-S, and 'Enter The Fog' with Gunnar "Kassem Mosse" Wendel. 'Cocomo' is a lush, rolling epic flush with heart-rending chords, hypnotic hooks and Red Planet melody locked to a warehouse-bouncing rhythm. Flipside there a lovely beatless mix allowing that icy hook to float free beside the tracky, jackin' tool 'Seedbed'.

Girgio Gigli, Markus Suckut and Cassegrain team up with Edit Select for three pure, pumping big room techno tools. With Gigli on the front, they churn up the roiling grind and teasing slivers of drone in 'Substance'; flipside Cassegrain gives 'Asperity' a thrumming acid reduction riding monotone bass and sci-fi synth motif beside a pumping Markus Suckut reprise licensed for the big room play.

Phil Kay ov Manchester's Working For A Nuclear City indulges his love of BoC and classic electronica in this charming debut solo album as King Of The Mountains. Whilst his bandmate and co-songwriter from WFANC Gary McLure has drifted towards writing acoustic songs, Phil Kay fully embraces his computer, along with a dash of sax and other "real" instruments to paint ten grand, lucid landscapes evidently influenced by the pastoral melodies and rugged grooves of BoC. These interests manifest clearly in the album's precise, imaginative arrangement and sound design, contouring unyielding rhy… Read more

Deeply spiritual roots reggae reissued for the good of the dance. Roy Dobson croons slow heavy and meditative about the scattered Jamaican diaspora on the A-side over lilting nyabinghi, loping bass, and zippy organ runs, flipped into a mystic dub chamber sound on the B-side. There's a very good reason the scarce original fetches big money on the 2nd hand market… Recommended!

Bristol's Vessel, El Kid and Jabu, part of the Young Echo collective, follow 2012's excellent Killing Sound tape for No Corners with this heavy doublepack for Blackest Ever Black. Described by the label as containing "four oblique soundsystem murderers", the EP is in some respects a bit of a side-step for BEB, edging away from their largely post-industrial and archival leanings in favour of something much more contemporary. Young Echo have had an incredible amount of press and attention over the last 18 months, testament perhaps to the rich and diverse number of projects its members have … Read more

Eschewing the whiplash and/or everything including the kitchen sink style of assembly so common among current analog aficionados, Bissonnette instead applies his signature compositional style of using long held tones and sweeping drones that alternate between, and fuse, pure tonal transcendence and patient, sparkling melodies that slowly reveal themselves. “Essays in Idleness was born from a desire for a more tactil… Read more

'Trace Loops' on the flip employs a slow, trance-like buildup with a brooding, tempered quality while 'Northern Shadows' provides a more standard bass-heavy edit, full of low-end menace.
