In the time since then it’s quietly become a bit of an iconic reflection for a post-rave generation, presenting a non-trivial nostalgia trip that someho… Read more

**Spotgloss-printed jacket with download code** Strong debut album from the multi-faceted Future Brown collective for Warp. Numbering Fatima Al Qadiri, plus Lit City Trax's J-Cush and Nguzunguzu's Daniel Pineda & Asma Maroof, they represent a worldwide perspective (LA, NYC, Kuwait) via myriad dancefloor strains shaken for their sweetest, futurist fruit and voiced by an international roll call including MCs from Chiraq, Jamaica-via-London and Latin NYC.

TECHNO / HOUSE

Cat. Number: ADLP04

A frictional face-off from Oregon's Best Available Technology and Berlin-based BNJMN. It's the result of years of file exchange, each producer parsing the other's material for nuggets of ideas and unique tones, textures which would make it onto the record. they're abstract, strangely semi-organic creatures, oscillating from salted electronica thru spiralling wormholes to unstable techno bumps and industrial ambient episodes, constantly in flux between and effecting a very disoriented state.

TERROR DANJAH & ZED BIAS / FLAVA D - Telepathy / Home (Champion Remix), FORMULA
UK rufige allstars on a heavy Formula Records sampler session. Flava D's 'Home' is ramped with bristling bassline flavour by label boss, Champion - sounds killah on 33rpm, too! - while flipside is given to a clash of the titans with a dream hook-up of Terror Danjah & Zed Bias on quicksilver 2-step tip sporting vocals by Olivia Louise.

JUNGLE / FOOTWORK

Cat. Number: SMNCHR006

Etch brings the drums on a badass 2nd 12" for Soundman Chronicles. For our £'s it's all about the Source Direct-styled B-side junglism, 'The Scientists (Breaknology)' with its spring loaded Amens and dark soldier flex, but the A-side's flanging, droning breaksploits in 'The Serpent And The Rainbow' and the Paradox-alike hip hop/breaks lean of 'Waterfalls' is damn hot, too.

Laced with vocals by Kelela, Anthony Flammia and l-O.A.K & Eric Arc Elliot, six songs twyst traces of grime, B-more, and EBM into blinging riddims ranging from the Jones-referencing glyde and swerve of 'With Grace We Go' thru The Dream-style lushness in 'Water Bed' or 'Chantè'; giddy grime-funk in 'The Motion Blurs', and a sparkling run of electro-soul with 'Cloud Lust', and lissom Linn groove, 'Air'.

Dekmantel

TECHNO / HOUSE

Cat. Number: DKMNTL023

Hip-notic trance-house dancers from New Jersey's Joey Anderson. On return to Dekmantel after 2014's 'After Forever' album, he reveals a more insistent, psychedelic sound stacked with buzzing synth sounds: '1974' oscillates sparkling arpeggios and starburst dynamics yoked to roiling kicks in spiralling escalation across the A-side; on the other, 'Under Water' inverts the formula to droning, warped and brilliantly discordant effect, and 'Back Draft' puts the drums down properly for the dancers.

MATS GUSTAFSSON WITH JOHN RUSSELL & PHIL MINTON - A Duo(s), BOCIAN RECORDS
**Initial copies on translucent pink vinyl** In case you weren't there, Bocian present documentation of a pretty unhinged Cafe Oto session between gifted improvisers, Mats Gustafsson (reeds), John Russell (guitar) & Phil Minton (voice). Just imagine stumbling in on this one unprepared - a trio of blokes bleating, parping and yanking like Reeves & Mortimer after three days on the sauce. Of course, that description does a disservice to their well-honed extended technique and dexterity, but we'd defy anyone to keep a totally straight face at some of Minton's Zoidberg impersonations and baby voices. What a mad one, eh!?

Freefall EP

Bloc.

TECHNO / HOUSE

Cat. Number: BLOC002

Pendulous and steppin' techno motors from Alex Coulton, backed with a churning, muscular refit by Function/Inland. Up top, Coulton's 'Freefall' carves out a super-wide swinging techno groove punctuated with woodblock snares and blooming dub chords, while 'Antagonise' jacks up a direct deep techno momentum rent with gauziest pads and sparky percussion. The Function/Inland remix of 'Freefall' excels with an intricately tucked style of techno rufige and radioactive synth burn making a smart follow-up to their 'Odeon' cut. Killer.

POPULARE MECHANIK - Kollektion 03 Compiled By Holger Hiller, Bureau B
*Vinyl Edition includes a copy of the CD free inside* NDW legend Holger Hiller sifts out a selection of dusty, wayward wave gems from the obscure early '80s Berlin archive of Wolfgang Seidel aka Populäre Mechanik. Rooted in the Zodiak Arts Club aesthetics of freedom and exploration, and prompted by the punk movement, Populäre Mechanik was coined as a vehicle to combine various strands of musical thought, from Devo-esque art-rock to jazz-wise detours and skinny dubs fracked with traces of slick yacht rock and exotica. RIYL K. Leimer, Felix Kubin, Gruppo D'Improvvisazione Nuova Consonanza.

TECHNO / HOUSE

Cat. Number: AC82

Matthew Herbert's cut-and-run dancefloor series reaches number 8 with four servings of louche, soulful house in his inimitable style. At its sweetest, the crooke soul of 'The Wrong Place' gets it right with woozy vocals by Hejira's Rahel and the laidback, string-heavy shuffler, 'Remember Ken' with Ade Omotayo, who has worked with Amy Winehouse and Kindness. For something a grittier, get on the twanging, motorik techno-stepper 'Ticket', or the Durian Brothers-esque Afro-centric wiggle and dreamy thumb piano bleeps of 'Her Face'.

Cat. Number: INTLP06

Roland Tings graduates from charming early singles for 100% Silk and Club Mod to this lush debut LP for Internasjonal. An impressionistic take on the golden era of late '80s/early '90s house filtered thru a pastel-toned Aussie heat haze, it swaggers across tempo zones from the buoyant, chirpy jack of 'Coming Up For Air' and the woozy piano house bumper, 'Who U Love', to the slow-building centrepiece 'Floating On A Salt Lake' before taking a downtempo turn with the chugging slow-house of 'Devotion' and the squashed strutter, 'Cultural Canal', and back deckside with the glorious 'Venus'.

*180g audiophile vinyl, includes CD* Originally issued back in 1997, "Von" was the first full album release from Icelandic drifters Sigur Ros and is now available once again in all its 72 minue glory. The sound across these 12 tracks is reassuringly primitive, though often daring (as in the completely flawed, though forward-thinking turntable-style rewinds at the end of "Hun Juro"), drifting from 4AD-inspired quasi-shoegazing atmospherics at one moment, and John-Cage inspired silence the next. The band was quite obviously at this stage not only looking at the reverberating echoes of the … Read more

He's as mad as ever, dropping baffling bars and signature non sequiturs across 17 of his strongest tracks in years, from the bouncing summer 2014 anthem, 'On A Level' to the gulliest new skool grime in 'Reel Off' to the extended, eleven minute chicanery of 'Snakes & Ladders (Part Two)' which surely sets a new precedent for modern grime.

Houndstooth's hip pop property on a psyched-out cloud rap footing. 'Dry' is a very strange take on syrup trap peppered with alien vocal inflections and a lean vibe recalling that wicked Jack Dice 12". 'Body' twists the lines even further with oily, slipping synth discord and lethargic percussion emulating the most fugged-up state of mind.

The slow burning kosmische iridescence of 'Last Known Position' is presented in Teague's own extended mix located somewhere between Pye Corner Audio and Reichian gamelan phasing, while Plaid present a more bittersweet remix ripe with deliquescent synth tone and murky groove next to a strobing shoegaze trance deceleration by The Field, and a Tangerine Dream-esque Errors remix.

Smudgy boogie house sprinkles from The Nuclear Family and Moon B. On their 2nd 12", the Family offer a hot plate of three warm and kinky 'floor moves at best in the breezy pacific house shuffle of 'Bedroom Dreamer' or the slackened, Pametex-alike bounce of 'Hand of God', but we reckon it's the patented flair of Moon B's 'Bedroom Dreamer' remix that will keep you reaching for this record.
