TECHNO / HOUSE

Cat. Number: AVN014

**Die-cut jacket** Shited & Ventress' Avian Records make space for a full solo debut from Sigha, following his anonymous drop as A Vision Of Love and a handful of previous remixes for the label. Six tracks capture Sigha at his most stripped down and crafty, working a palette of desiccated drums and fibrillating bass into driving, serpentine rhythms. As DJ tools they're tricky but highly useful little buggers...

Unknown Precept follow their industrial compilation 'The Black Ideal' with a noisy, clattering vinyl debut by Damaskin. Toiling scorched earth between AnD, Prostitutes and the Weevil series, four tracks rove from heads-down industrial churn to skippier, sub-heavy off-beats, wild-eyed experiments and grubby monotone slammers.

Cat. Number: AOS1975

Omar-S drops proper Detroit knowledge on a doublepack of deepest house grooves. Time and again this man delivers the stuff other producers would give their little finger for. First plate cruises in with the lushed pads, rainbow arpeggios and square bass bounce of 'Leave', plus a pure, happy-clapping piano house joint called 'Romancing The Stone'. Second plate he switches tack with the laidback, minimalist lather of chicken scratch guitar sample and spitting acid, and dips out on the outstanding epic of percolating chords and triplet shimmy in 'Surpass'.

Cat. Number: 699YTIVIL

Hodge comes heavy with two tribal riddim trips for Dnuos Ytivil, the sister label of Peverlist and co's Livity Sound. Miles away from the buttoned up boogie-house grooves of his Outboxx duo with Matthew Lambert, both tracks here really give the 'floor something to dance with. A-side 'Amor Fati' rolls out the drums like a Beneath reduction of Shackelton, all hypnotic percussive cadence and booming techno junglist bass. B-side is better still, brukking forward with tight-cut drum edits, snake-charming melody and sirens like some secret weapon from A Made Up Sound or dego. Killah sound, supported by Ben UFO, Pangaea, Martyn, Surgeon and more. Big tip!

Danny Wolfers aka Legowelt dices with deep space house, new age boogie pop for PPU. This is the debonaire dweeb sound, equal parts Carl Sagan soundtrack and greazy, dusty disco panache. Up top the Dutch master tickles out the milky synthlines and bubbling proto-house patterns of 'Puzzles In Life' - one of his creamiest joints to date - plus the slo-mo, weightless gyrations and romantic chords of 'Videophone To Space'; flipside he seriously impresses with the starlit deckside dreamer 'Cruise Till The Sun Shines' replete with a rare instance of his own vocodered vocals, and checks out of 'Los Alamos Motel' with a satisfyingly smudged slow groove.

Exceptional, dazzling modular synth compositions from the boss of Chicago's underground incubator, Catholic Tapes for John Elliott's Spectrum Spools. A filigree mesh of field recordings and "ritual variations of a singular patch for Modular Synthesis", Naucke's 3rd solo LP since his 2010 debut for Arbor is a sophisticated and inquisitive thing of wonder, framing a macroscopic vision equally guided by academic, avant-garde intuition and painstaking studio process.

Two years after the excellent 'DIN' LP, former Pit Er Pat player FAY Davis-Jeffers returns with a bolder, even more arresting sound on 'Deathwatch', again released by California's Time No Place label. Anchored by wilfully, cannily off-the-grid grooves, we hear a more sultry and warped FAY this time out, much to our satisfaction. Nine tracks twyst and wriggle between the clattering, itchy funk of 'C.a.y.a' to the lo-slung post-punk bass riffing and swaggered sensuality of 'Sex Hats' thru the collapsing industro-dub rhythms of 'Can't Fall' to tumbling, extra-tropical syncopation and synth discord in 'Co… Read more

DJ Clent - the low end legend - has been known for his music since the days of Dance Mania, releasing tracks such as 'Bounce' and 'Back Up Off Me' which are juke classics. He also released the grimy call to arms footwork track '3rd Wurle', as well as tracks on both Bangs & Works Compilations. 'Hyper Feet' starts off the EP with a high-speed footwork homage to Mike Dunn's classic 'Magic Feet', replicating the hits and using 303 acid to make a sparse but precision-tooled piece of footwork. Next up, 'Baby Yeah' works a vocal and sax sample into shimmering cut-ups and high-speed rhythmic shapes. On s… Read more

John Osborn follows his excellent October link-up on two kinky, driving collaborations with Tallmen785, backed with ace Tom Dicicco remix. Their 'Meldrum' A-side is a lean piece of bleeping techno-house, and 'Deskjam' gets fruitier with seductive mix of EBM kicks and grubbing bassline smut for the darkrooms. Tom Dicicco tempers that darkroom vibe with a more rugged, tribalist remix tipped for Levon Vincent fans.

Floyd - the same cat behind Nice & Wild's 'Diamond Girl' and stacks more Freestyle/Electro-funk killers during the '80s - and gone down in history as a masterpiece of early American electro-funk. Part 1 on the A-side features deadliest drum programming synced with mad, slyding sinewaves, Sino melodies and wicked vocoder vocal - definitive sh*t if we've heard it - whilst Part 2 on the B-side mostly strips it all down to the killer rhythm section with an amazing phreak-out to close.

Sampling from a palette of modified and reconstituted field recordings, Klara's debut compositions yield ten terrarium-like sonic ecologies rich in organic texture and detail enlivened by bristling electronics and insectoid rhythms. They're strange, self-contained units amounting to a complex, beguiling lattice of unique timbres, atmospheric space and coarse yet fluidly woven texturhythms, all infused with a subtle sort of ambient (de)compositional sorcery.

The aching, alien vocal timbre and insectoid rhythms of 'Painlessly In Love' feels like a digitally-cured distillation of Ayshay, Autechre and Islaja, given an Enya-gone-techno overhaul by Lakker on the arresting remix version, and the instrumental 'Realm' swirls and keens with a weightless, polrhythmic hip hop shimmy at once reminding of Moon Wiring Club and the recent FAY album. Really class stuff. We look forward to hearing where the label goes next.
