A Rose Is a Rose (Remastered)

Dark Entries Records

Format_dot_vinylLP + 7" // £22.49

INDUSTRIAL / WAVE / ELECTRO

Cat. Number: DE084LP

**Remastered LP compiled with facsimile reissue of No More's 1980 debut 7" + an 11 x 14" double-sided fold-out poster** Dark Entries combine No More's strongest synth-pop/EBM classics, 'A Rose Is A Rose' [1982], along with all songs from the 'Suicide Commando' [1981] 7" and their debut release, the 'Too Late EP' [1980]. Whilst best known for their EBM evergreen, 'Suicide Commando' - which was recently reissued by Mannequin Records - this survey of the German group's nascent output circa 1980-82 frames them as a necessarily lo-fi and highly stylish product of their bleak and deso… Read more

Chantepleure

STUDENTS OF DECAY

Format_dot_vinylLP // £16.49

MODERN CLASSICAL / AMBIENT

Cat. Number: SOD113

Alex Cobb, the soul behind the Taiga Remains alias and Students of Decay label, enchants with an expansive quartet of ghostly drone compositions in 'Chantepleure'. He sets a rarified, almost ecclesiastical air with the solemn poise of 'Prayer Ring', followed thru and expanded in the thicker layers of drone harmonics in melting from 'Anselin', whereas the more succinct arrangement of 'Disporting with a Shadow' acts as a sweeter, space-resetting palate cleanser for the intimate and glacially paced 16 minutes of shimmering harmonics in 'Path of Appearance'.

TECHNO / HOUSE

Cat. Number: INERTIA05

Class techno from a producer last spotted on DVS-1's Mistress Recordings. This is proper club tackle, doing it Chicago-style with the bucking merry-go-round of 'Machine Code' up top, and again with that wonky Relief-style organ/acid line barely kept on track in 'Recursive Descent', whilst 'Compiler' trims back for a Rob Hood-compatible minimalist 'floor burner.

**Hospital Productions return with this strong new album from Exoteric Continent, edition of 500 copies, first 200 pressed up on Blue wax** Barcelona's Exoteric Continent grounds his first ever vinyl release following cassette drops for Opal Tapes and Second Sleep. Exploring ascetic techno and electronic noise, this vinyl edition combines both his 'Referèndum' tape volumes on one fine slab.

**Edition of 300. Includes Suicideyear remix** DarkO debuts with typical drama on Rinse, following a striking shot for Visionist's Lost Codes label in 2014. It's a sweetboy grime ting, treading a fine melodic line of effusive heartburst and melancholic heart-break between the teetering trance arpeggio peaks and crashing trap snares of 'Abrasion', and the beat-less R&B lush-out of 'The Past', also taking in the buoyant Reese and 808 bass and breathlessly ascending blips of 'Fuschia', and a slippery, colourful grime zinger in 'Spiral'.

TECHNO / HOUSE

Cat. Number: WIID04

'Whips' is a masterclass in tape-saturated house cryptography by Lutto Lento. Leading on from the crooked equations of his 'F T D 001' debut for Charles Drakeford's label, this six-tracker exhibits a broader range of variations on that ferric-choked, grubby and bugged-out style. Employing the deftest tape loop edits and playful sense of construction/derangement, he uses the format's natural fidelities to distinguish, mask and accentuate his sound from every angle - whether coaxing noxiously murky harmonics out of the asphyxiating bass in darkside bomb, 'Vengo'; disorienting with the frayed chicane… Read more

Up top they nod to classic Relief and Scandinavia Records with the kinky minimalist tessellations of 'Ribtickler'; down below, 'Maniac Hop' jacks up a skittish ghetto percolator, and 'Fire Marshall' drops the pace to a bucking early '90s style recalling Robert Armani product.

Manchester's Walton consolidates grime, techno and dubstep frames in a taut collection for Tectonic. Last spotted on a trio of 12"s for Hyperdub, he remains true to a mutant 130bpm stylein the 'Bulldoze' EP, throwing down the icy strings and whirring worksite percussion of 'Wrench' beside the ruffneck bongos and wheezing grime melodies of 'Flute Riddim' up top, whilst B-side brings a killer sound synching pirate radio barks with EBM-strength drums and massive subs, and 'L.E.A.N.' comes off like some Chiraq drill infused with roadwise UK flex. Cold and deadly.

Upon original release, it was his 3rd album (following 'Communications' and 'Basictonalvocabulary'), and marked a subtle phase shift towards the kind of tripped-out, eldritch atmospheres we'd more readily associate with his peers such as Autechre or Coil, whilst still forging some of the most unyielding, infectious rhythms of golden era techno.

Cat. Number: LSR016

Clipped electro-house from Rob Clouth on his return to Leisure System, backed with Kowton and Vessels remixes. The original makes great use of a convulsive, dubstep-style toad tone wrapped to a swaggering IDM-boogie groove. Kowton's remix ruffs up the drums and spikes the atmospheres to lush, prickling effect, and Vessels (note the extra 's') knead the same elemebnts into a whirring tech-house wormhole.

Acting wild-eyed and frazzled like some Bunker escapee, the unknown operator dispenses three fierce club trax with style, hauling the 'floor from blown-out Italo-Chicago arpeggios and extreme flange on the A-side, and over to a pair of more twysted and tracky dubs, one sounding like a a mutant Ra.H joint, the other like a vintage Unit Moebius jack attack.

'Dinsync' is carefully crafted as an album listening experience, as opposed to a collection of dancefloor tracks and interlude after-thoughts, following an abstract yet distinct narrative between gaseous pads of intro, 'If… Then' thru the lowkey, red-lit funk of '202 Heroes' to the metallic discord and ambient evacuation of 'Safe!', to a sweetly coherent 2nd side moving between BoC-like beats and cosmic/pastoral synth atmospheres with a charming mix of naif whimsy and trim analogue finesse.
