ELECTRONIC

Cat. Number: DBOOT017

"Sunny Graves’ debut release comes in the form of a four track EP recorded, assembled and mixed via analogue and digital means between Barcelona and New York during 2013 and marks the first official output for Simon Williams’ (formerly Jahbitat) most personal and focused project to date. ‘Bayou EP’ comprises a thoroughly meditated collection of work made up of four carefully constructed rhythmic, melodic, textural and emotional explorations in which dense layers of synthesisers and processed samples collide and breathe with pulsing beats, and where bass frequencies, soundscapes, field recordi… Read more

*300 copies with risographed and hand stamped sleeves, plus download coupon* Debut three track 7" from London feminist punks Frau who feature members of Woolf and Good Throb. They released the much loved 8 track 10 minute demo on Tuff Enuff Records in late 2013 (which has now been reissued on LP by Dead Beat Records) and now return with three more short blasts of discordant and furious noise. 'Punk Is My Boyfriend' is a dirty and scratchy cut with pounding drums and an insistent guitar hook. It comes over like a mix of Pre 'Cut' Slits, Huggy Bear and Kleenex.

Cat. Number: DS1

The master returns with his 3rd EP of serpentine riddims for Woe To The Septic Heart! Working deeper into the synthesis-based approach which yielded the finer electronic timbres of his 'Freezing Opening Thawing' 12", here he's refined the technique to near-Villalobos levels of layered, rhythmelodic intricacy, but of course, all with his inimitable accent. First up, 'Beat His Command' is a dense, blinding display of pointillist percussion and hypnotic chimes laced with flashes of technoid gremlins and white noise explosions. Secondly, 'Vor und zurück' flips that formula for a more … Read more

LA-style summer jams from Delroy Edwards and Benedek, aka Rx for y'all. Under a patina of ferric smog and medicinal weed smoke they spread the funk thick 'n greazy on both sides, slyding up close with oily bassline and melting chords in 'Strung Out' for that eyes-shut-and-shuffling appeal, whilst flipside picks up the swaying shimmer of Linn-like drums and mystic pipes in 'Prescriptions'. Timeless PPU quality.

VARIOUS - Bosporus Bridges: A Wide Selection Of Turkish Jazz And Funk, TWIMO RECORDS
'Bosporus Bridges' collects eleven heavy jazz and funk grooves from Turkey circa 1968-1978. Like Baris K's killer edit selection, 'Istanbul 70', this LP reveals a hitherto largely unknown world meeting east and west in unique fashion. However, this one's less psych and disco, more jazz and funk, covering the uptempo burn of Fikret Kizilok's 'Aybatti (edit)' along with the crazed electronics and deadly funk downstroke of 'Aksu Orkestrasi's 'Bermuda Seytan Ücgeni', the Brazilian-infected jazz of Erol Peckan's 'Senlik' and the awesome, snake-charming slink of 'Denizalti Rüzgarlari'. Recommended!
