JOHN CAGE & LANGHAM RESEARCH CENTRE - Cage: Early Electronic & Tape Music, Sub Rosa
**180g silver/white vinyl - Historically important pieces documenting John Cage's early electronic and tape practice** "Although John Cage occasionally worked in large, sophisticated studios - for example, when he composed Fontana Mix in 1958 - his approach to electronic and tape music was often uncomplicated, makeshift, and pragmatic, employing simple tabletop devices: tape machines, phonograph cartridges, contact microphones, record players, portable radios, etc. He developed a soundworld that was utterly new, radical and demanding. It heralded the… Read more

Cat. Number: NNB003

Swing Ting captain Samrai steps solo with the super sophisticated 'Riddim Trax' for London's Niche N Bump. Four tracks coolly explore the binds between UKF, Deep House, Boogie and Bashment at a breezy 115bpm, bolstered by a shot of pure vocal sunshine from MC Fox on 'Let It Ride'. It's all testament to the open-minded and focussed aesthetic guiding Samrai's duties as DJ co-host at Manchester's Swing Ting dance where he and DJ Platt seamlessly strafe styles under the street rave spectrum with quicksilver soul and finesse. Set to such a specific tempo, the 'Riddim Trax' are a pointed shift away from… Read more

A welcome and typically beguiling return from Finland's Merja Kokkonen aka Islaja, who's now dropped the freakier folk elements in favour of trippier, modern art-pop and minimal wave. Four years since we last heard from her on Fonal with 'Keraaminen Pää', and in the Hertta Lussu Ässä trio for De Stijl, it would appear she's had a radical revision of her sound now stalking ground somewhere between Björk and Maria Minerva, yet without any concession to her strikingly unique, oneiric sound. You could possibly attribute her palette shift to the input of Heidi Mortenson, who co-produced and mixed the album, … Read more

Deft, spaced-out instrumental Grime riddims from Spare on the up-and-coming Coyote Records. Following an appearance on the 'Coyote Kings' compilation, the London-based producer debuts proper with a slippery, kinetic sound taking on mercurial, darker grime garage on '1bit', beside the silvery arpeggios and sensual chord progressions of 'Venom' and a the aggy 8-bit bounce of 'Boss Hog', but best of all is the sweeter feminine pressure of 'Glide' with its dancing melody and rugged breakbeat flow nodding to Zomby.
