**Clear Vinyl** Edit Select teams up with Teste to refresh their '92 techno classic 'The Wipe' for 2014, backed with an hypnotic new collaboration. A-side, Edit Select performs a subtle edit, nudging the tempo down for contemporary compatibility, whilst leaving the roiling acid bass and searing hi-end flange more or less intact. B-side, their 'Ascend' hook-up traces a gradual trajectory thru rolling bass modulation and floating, finely-layered synth stata in classic style. Tip!

Cat. Number: KFR2030-1

"'Sorrow Tears And Blood' bookended the Nigerian army's deadly raid of the Kalakuta Republic, Fela Kuti's self-appointed state domicile, and Kuti's hostile feelings toward upper-class Nigeria are prominent on both sessions... 'Sorrow Tears And Blood', the first recording released after the Kalakuta's capture, is fiercer; the band's sound almost seeming to drip blood. Slower and more persistent, the ominous grooves here no longer bother with metaphor, crying out bluntly, "some people lost some bread, someone has just died... them leave sorrow, tears and blood." Alongside Woody Guthrie's "Struggle", this is as stirring as musical social protest gets."

The eighties weren't known as Fela's finest period. He was under much pressure from the Nigerian government and extensive touring of the US and Europe lead to a dearth of good material. 'Teacher Don't Teach Me Nonsense' from 1986 is considered the exception, featuring three extended tracks of more melancholy and deeply soulful Afro-Beat expressions.

"The Upper Hand & Other Grand Illusions is a series of vignettes that tell a story of courtship and intimate interaction. It opens with a confrontation in “Forever Love Is Tainted,” focusing on the inner monologue of a man deceived. The song is a shot of reality, produced by Jelani Brooks to achieve a sound that is syncopated in melody, harmony, rhythm and texture. Each song thereafter documents a realization, “A Private Island” acting as commentary on the literal cost of getting to know someone.

Tensile techno, grime and electro-bass rhythms from the ever-luminous Ikonika for Hyperdub. In contrast to her previous records, there's the feeling she's taken a step back from full-on modernism to bring vintage styles forward in her unique way. A-side, 'Position' jacks up a wily fusion of Dance Mania/Chicago house with Socafied Grime and electroid synthlines, and 'Praxis' twirls a glistening helix of industrial halfstep drums and bittersweet, 3D synth motifs. Flipside is better yet, bringing the crisply punctuated latin freestyle flex of 'Strawberry Underlay' and the dextrous twine of jackin' old skool drums with hairy guitar riffs and Atari blips.

At worst they're dippy exercises in "world" fusion; at best they're psychedelic collages swirling radio signals, MIDI orchestration and even samples of Pope John Paul II.
