ELECTRONIC

Cat. Number: BF053

**Ships Friday - Includes digital download code redeemable from the label** Mr. Oizo cuts loose on Flying Lotus' Brainfeeder label in his first solo LP since 2011's 'Stade 2'. Now an LA resident, Oizo seems perfectly placed to show America how EDM should really be done, contextualising current production palettes with strong elements of old skool electro alloyed to fierce saw-tooth synthlines and screwed rave stabs. It all dovetails very neatly with Brainfeeder's hectic aesthetics, too, applying a freeform, jazz-funked approach that plays at odds with the surgical precision of his edits, resultin… Read more

Making their first appearance on vinyl following BEB's issue of 'Dead Unique', they give two sublime glimpses of Hobbs' gift for "ambiguous, ecstatic, anguished" songwriting and arrangement that may well have lain undiscovered by the rest of us otherwise.

Your dreamboy, Noah Lennox aka Panda Bear meets The Grim Reaper in a magical 5th solo album outside of his Animal Collective duties. Crafted in conjunction with psychedelic supremo Pete Kember (Spacemen 3 etc), it professes a mixture of loping drums influenced by the '90s hip hop of ATCQ and Pete Rock, coupled with a colourful instrumental/hardware palette of synths, guitars and vocals, rather than the sampling methods employed in his seminal, signature side, 'Person Pitch' (2007). The songs are patently written by Panda Bear - the lilting melodies and st… Read more

Ben Westbeech aka Breach meets Dutch lynchpin, Cinnaman for two trance-etched and deeper house groovers. Both tracks find a fine blend of warm, piquant synth clarity and dusted bass heft drawing on the producer's shared background in hip hop, soul and bass styles - Cinnaman was a pioneer of the Beat Dimensions sound and resident at Amsterdam's Trouw (RIP), Breach steeped in soulful D&B. Their A-side mixes tight, rugged bass drive with the kind of slow-burning synth arrangements you'd expect from Carl Craig, rising to a peak that earns the title 'Liberty', while B-side bumps a funked-up flex with phasing disco loops and garage-tucked swing and D-troit string pads.

Mannheim Rocket push a raw yet well mannered sound, mixing gruff drums with elegant string motifs in 'Liberation' whereas 'Hora Lunga' deals in more widescreen ambient tropes and blunted, Madteo style groove. 'Oubliees' is further worn down to a nub of lo-fi house sprinkled with keys and fractured breakbeats; 'Schuon' offers a moire collage of operatic vocal samples.

When first released in 1981, the chief debate surrounding 'The Ascension' ran, is this a rock band performing classical pieces, or an experimental ensemble tackling rock music?

These days it's hard to hear Branca without thinking of Sonic Youth ˆ Thurston Moore and Lee Ranaldo both served tours of duty in Branca's guitar armies - but the main critical reference points in 1981 were the repetetive minimalism of Philip Glass and Steve Reich on the one hand, the "hard rock" of The Ramones on t… Read more
