Played by: Schmutz, Mr. Madness
Review: A second collaboration by Perc and Truss has surfaced and it adds to the situational, high intensity techno both are delivering London clubs at the moment. Across eight tracks the two have released as Perc & Truss you can now begin to pinpoint some of the individual elements from both producers. Here it comes through on Truss' straight-laced and hammered-down percussion and the caustic acid lines similarly heard on his MPIA3 alias, particularly "Forever Your Girl". On the Perc side of things, the speakerphone vocal of "Two Hundred" is reminiscent to those used on his Power And The Glory LP, as is the light electrical hum of distortion across the intermittent snares of "Van Der Valk". And if you're after a big old kick drum, look no further than "Judd".

Harshing (Kevin Drumm remix) - (7:57)
from $1.49
Review: The Downwards label precede the intriguing release of a new album from multi disciplinarian Russell Haswell with this remix release brandishing wildly different reinterpretations of the Coventry based musician's work from William Bennett, Kevin Drumm and label boss Regis. Haswell and Downwards seem like a good fit given the former's long career of boundary pushing music across labels as varied as Editions Mego, Warp Records and Carlos Giffoni's No Fun Productions, while the latter have remained uncompromising in the direction of their release schedule. It's a rare occasion when you can identify a Regis remix as the most accessible contribution to a release, but that's certainly the case here, with the Downwards chief delivering a twitching, loopy techno workout of "Chua Rave," while Whitehouse founding member William Bennett - another former collaborator of Haswell's - has remixed "Harshing" which is quite aptly described by Downwards as a "stereo head f*cking, brain floss session". This is surpassed in the "skin crawling brutal sonics" stakes by the minute remix of the same track from the Chicago-based experimental musician Kevin Drumm.

from $1.49
Review: With a rich reputation for experimental cello performances and recordings, Arne Deforce links up with Mika Vainio for a nail-biting study in re-contextualising an instrument to realise a wholly new potential. With a heavy load of distortion on top of it, Deforce's instrument sounds like a thunderous guitar on "Phlegethon (Stream Of Fire)", making for an apocalyptic opening to the album. "Styx (River Of Rage)" likewise rains down heavy amounts of squeal and squall around a searing groan of noises and processes. There are more measured moments too, such as the slowly humming "Lethe (River Of Forgetfulness) Or Oblivion" and "Cocytus (River Of Lamentation)"s uneasy trickle of sounds.

from $1.49
Review: After a three year absence, the collaborative project of Ilpo Vaisanen and Dirk Dresselhaus (better known as Schneider TM) yields a new album for their regular haunt Editions Mego, and it's a subtle beast that rewards patient and attentive ears. "Naked Land" growls and prowls over 26 minutes of mutant groans and drones fizzing with acoustic energy, while "Monolake" brings proceedings down to a more tense, restrained level of disturbing noise. "Colonialists" takes the high-frequency road with a multitude of nerve-jangling soundwaves merging into one slow-release cacophony, and "Quake" finishes off with some grungy distortion reaching towards a twisted kind of musicality.

from $1.49
Review: Ravi Binning's Thought Broadcast moniker is a manifestation of the artist's experimental edge at its most organic. We've been told that only the grittiest and most archaic of production methods went into the making of this record - analog machinery and a heavy focus on tape manipulation, most specifically - and it's exactly this which makes Benning's third LP for Editions Mego so special. From start to finish, the music is dense and chilling, but at the same time raw and stripped to the bone. Benning's singular drone twists move cleverly along rich soundscapes made up of glacial effects and even subtle swirls of noise, demonstrated ably on "Runaway Signal". It's not all completely abstract, however, and the grainy beats of tracks like "Carving A Bow" or even "Forged Body" make this album a certified winner on all fronts.

Review: Well, what can we say? It's a new Mika Vainio work. The Finnish experimentalist always continues to surprise and amaze with each new release, managing to always re-invent hi sound and go beyond his peers. Kilo comes courtesy of Blast First Petite and goes through ten tracks of Vainio's finest drone manipulations. Everything from the opener "Cargo" to tracks like "Cranes" or "Sub-Atlantic" and even "Wreck", display a side of Vainio that we haven't truly seen before and one which makes most other drone work seem futile and stale. This guy knows to work his machines and has a vision not likely to be understood by many. Highly recommended!

Review: Having previously released music from the likes of Bristol's Ekoplekz, British electronic music pioneer F.C. Judd and Brooklyn's ADR, Public Information continue their survey of the outer fringes of avant-garde electronics by shifting their focus to USA's West Coast, presenting the debut record from Austin Cesear. Even in terms of America's rich underground of contemporary producers Cesear seems like an outsider; where his contemporaries are content to rework well worn tropes into bright retro pastiche, Cesear's music is warped and decayed, existing in a dark, parallel version of Chicago and Detroit's musical past. Cruise Forever is an album of two halves, combining dense techno in the vein of Actress or Andy Stott and digital, tape looped ambient that is somewhere between Daniel Lopatin, Fennesz and Steve Reich. Far from being a pretender however, Cesear puts his own bold stamp on these influences, reconstructing them with his own rusty building blocks and delivering an album that is one of best debuts we've heard this year.

Review: Bringing a truly garbled approach to Erol Alkan's Phantasy Sound stable, BTU is Brazilian artist Babe, Terror and the mysterious Man Make Music contributor U working together on a mission to disorientate you through their fearsome application of sample science. "Government/Swordbeerfish/Ugly Sneakers" comes on like Musique Concrete pasted to the wall of a pulsing warehouse, as splintered fragments of detuned vocal, jazz wig outs and countless other minute details flurry around that muffled kick. "Breathe Awesome/Blueen" is a slightly less manic affair, allowing a bit more space for reversed guitars and other off-kilter noises to drift around in a more considered kind of madness. It's a bold record but still accessible in its own, broken way.

Played by: Luke Slater, Lakker, Woo York
Review: Whether or not Berlin-based Italian Luca Montellaro's sophomore album, Churches Schools & Guns is a concept album (we have no idea, to be honest), there's a definite connection between the evocative, uneasy title and the clastrophobic, paranoid music contained within. "The Horror", a decidedly unsettling foray into nightmarish ambience, sets the tone. The maudlin but strangely involving music which follows shuffles between ethereal, post-dubstep tech-scapes ("The Self as Another", "Human Triage"), druggy hypnotism ("Follow the Leader"), sludgy downtempo oddness ("Catch 22") and tumbling, monastic ambience ("Falling"). Throughout, there's an uneasy sense of a bleak, other-wordly story unfolding.

Review: Blackest Ever Black crank the releases gears back into action for 2014 with the first release of what promises to be another perennially intriguing calender year. Typically, their focus falls on a musician who might not be that familiar to the wider audience but has a discography that commands respect. Check the Blackest Ever Black website and you'll find a press release that paints Stefan Jaworzyn as "a notorious and energetic presence in the UK underground of the 1980s and '90s" who enjoyed stints in acts such as Whitehouse, Ascension and Skullflower, as well as overseeing the Shock Records label. Having withdrawn from music in 1996, Jaworzyn remained off the grid until earlier this year when the Shock Records label was reactivated and he set to work on sifting through his personal archives of recordings for the KINO reissue/compilation series. It was during this process that Jaworzyn chanced upon a set of "driving, faintly sociopathic and supremely zoned pieces" made at his Cardiff studio in 1982 using a Korg MS10 or 20 and a Dr Rhythm drum machine. Seven of these compositions now feature on Drained Of Connotation, which is perhaps the most BEB-appropriate title in some time!

Review: With just a handful of percussive noise cassettes under their belt for Dominick Fernow's Hospital Productions, Rainforest Spiritual Enslavement have succeeded in finding their own momentum amongst the myriad of glitchy, hissing drone E's governing the best part of the label. "The Plant With Many Faces" is already their third Hospital release in a year and it marks a clear continuation of the imprint's dark but conceptual aesthetic. If it weren't for its comparatively reassuring strand of percussion towering above the swell of growls, "Abaxial Masks With Sockets Closed To Hide The Face When The Destroyer Comes Alive" would be the definition of total doom, but its poignant structure gives the track a point of reference and instead of staring into an abyss of noise, we're guided rather gently by its ominous but irresistibly enticing bassline. "Out Of The Mess Came The Green Devil", on the other hand, loops a blockade of deranged field recordings into a quasi-groove, and the same can be said for "Complex Rituals To Control Anthurium", a similarly marvellous escapade into the evolution of organic sounds. Finally, "Poisonous Spirit Species" morphs from calm to volatile, where sparse trickles of crackle and bang manoeuvre without care through the long and cavernous tunnel of white noise. Another biggie from one of the most interesting labels around.

Review: There are most definitely some dub elements running adrift in this latest selection of dread filled tracks from Hospital Productions' Rainforest Spiritual Enslavement, such as on the opener "Upside Down Left Eye" which is a real excursion into the lower frequencies of the sound spectrum. "Undrinkable Water" is as bleak and despairing as you can get for Hospital, whilst "In Honduras Death Caused By Being Chased By Spirits" truly brings out the name of the artist into the limelight, where chirpy but sinister bird noises drop in and out of a chilling sphere of reverb. "The Spirit Wore The Shoes Of The Boy" is a comparatively more beat-led dub excursion and it's one of the highlights, though all of this compelling and challenging journey into the tenebrous mind of Rainforest Spiritual Enslavement comes highly recommended.

Review: This Hospital Productions release sees both Ames Sanglantes and Alberich return to the label and deliver their usual dose of extravagance in the shape of a split EP (no pun intended) containing seven furious blends of noise drones. Ames Sanglantes takes care of the first four segments, starting with "On The Investigation Of Perfection", a beatless techno workout which almost represents the aftermath of a rave. Moving on, we have "Book Of Furnaces", a jittering, techno-reminiscent piece with haphazard kick drums and ingeniously placed melodies, whilst "The Height Of The Perfection Of Mastery" is a serious parade of noise injections and twittering synth patches. "On The Discovery Of Truth" is somewhat more ominous and although its backbone is compiled of spine-chilling muffles of noise, Sanglantes manages to create some order through the sinister melody hidden within. Alberich comes though with "Fence Before Dawn", a gorgeous techno reincarnation of noise, whilst "Ideologically Weak" breaks the beat up and presents a bleepy, gloomy painting of sound. "Work Preparation Unit" is simply outstanding and it uses more subtle characteristics to deliver Alberich's twisted vision of music. Truly incredible.

Review: This new LP by Kevin Drumm couldn't have come sooner enough and to be honest, it's exactly the sort of thing that's pushing us through these chilling winter days over here at Juno HQ. It comes courtesy of Hospital Productions, an imprint which needs no introduction and one which has truly broadened the horizons of electronic music over the past year. "Night Side" sets the scene for what evolves into a brooding whirlpool of sonic elements, slowly unfolding into the dreary pads of "Winter Ice" or the relatively more hopeful drones of "Taurean". It's a real concept piece, with each take being at least ten minutes long and oozing with timbral morphs, such as "Gradual Extinction" and "Return", a startling composition of silent pads and pure guitar feedback. "Grace" seems to be its natural development as those fearless drones grow further into the ether but it's the final "Dimming The Gas Lights" that breaks everything down and unleashes all of Drumm's sonic wrath in the shape of uncontrollable howling noises. Recommended? No, needed!

Annihilation Of The Vagina (The Night) - (12:38)
from $1.49
Review: This time Dominick Fernow takes the form of his Prurient guise, a project restricted to Fernow's considerably noisier frame of mind but one that still manages to evoke boundless emotion. As you would imagine from the title, "You Weren't Worth The Paper You Were Printed On (The Sun)" is ripe with anger and brimming with energy - a ten minute grind of furious drones and rising vocals form the depths of those booming noises. "They Found You Shattered On The Concrete (The Moon)" is no less menacing but Fernow moulds and rearranges the shapes of the oscillator waves to the point of total abstraction and rage, whereas "Two Golden Stick Webs (The Day)" takes a more hollow approach, fusing mounds of delays and effects with crumbling voices and metallic screeches. Last but not least, "Annihilation Of The Vagina (The Night)" upsets and disrupts with no hesitation thanks to its subdued screams dropping effortlessly into heavy, noisy drones built for the brave-hearted - it's noise at its purest form: honest, brutal and provocative.

Review: The heavily sought after "Ghosts Of Chechnya" cassette finally sees a digital release. Vatican Shadow is unstoppable at the moment, his alchemistic beats and military themes marking him out as a singular talent. This latest affair, a sort of LP, is nothing short of stunning and it's tracks like "The House Of The Followers" with its dubbed-out, reverberant noises, that make Vatican Shadow stand out among his peers. The aptly named "Voices Came Crackling Across A Motorola Hand-Held Radio" is another beast, where chugging kick drums meet ominous pads and crackling static. "Chechnya's Ghosts Loom Large In Death Of Former Spy" is another fine example of his creative ability to mould techno into any shape he sees fit; but it's the filling spaces made up of eerie melodies and stripped beats, like "Snipers As A Breed Tend To Be Superstitious" which make his recordings so enchanting. Highly recommended as usual.

from $2.48
Review: Vatican Shadow has emerged as one of the most interesting and elusive acts within modern techno. Dominick Fernow's music is consistently tricky to pin down and he's been restructuring the connection between dark, industrial rock and techno - something which has gained massive support from veteran Birmingham boy, Regis. Jordanian Descent is another spine-chilling journey into chambered, military beats and dismembered melodies. The "Sharia Law" mix is a slow-moving, monster of a track. Menacing snares and hi-hats are transformed into slithering pieces of percussion which whirl along to a chugging, progressive beat. "Guantanamo Military Commissions" is faster in tempo but nonetheless effective; a pounding, granulous kick drum makes way for a shifting collage of apocalyptic sounds and atmospherics. Another huge record from this mysterious producer - an absolute TIP.

Review: Dominick Fernow's Hospital Productions has been running for donkey's years, continuously shaping the fine lines between abstract experimentation, sound installations and electronica. This is Rainforest Spiritual Enslavement's sixth instalment for the label and as usual, comes courtesy of a generous digital re-release from its original and near impossible to find, cassette format. A haunting wall of noise opens "Spot A Witch By Changes In The Persons Behaviour", a rich concoction of white noise which eventually transforms into a more stable, drone-fuelled dissection. The chillingly named "In New Guinea Police Don't Have The Petrol Money To Search For The Witch Murderers" is a fine example of their objective: to capture situations and reduce them to a musical context - crackling, almost human field recordings guiding the whole 5 minutes. Same goes for "Bodies Of Suspected Witches Are Dumped In The River Or Buried In Toilet Pits", a bizarre alignment between haunted recordings and tape manipulations; and its only on "Sorcery Killings" that the artist gives us anything near a concrete musical arrangement. Otherworldly recordings from the label!

Review: It's a good thing that Hospital Productions are unearthing most of Vatican Shadow's cassette takes on digital format, a lost collection of sublime electronic madness which would otherwise only be available for 75 lucky punters. "There Was A Black Banner On The Floor", a submerged kick drum leading the way for a medley of sharp percussion sounds and chilling tones, is some of Vatican's best work to date; while the provocatively named "Al Qaeda Possess Nuclear Capacity" sees our man in a more pensive mood, where cascading tribal drums are swayed by a mesmerising bundle of climatic synths and radiances. "Wahhabi Money Flows" is another brilliant downtempo piece, all complete with his usual blend of inter-wining snares and bass lines; but it's the ominous bass frequencies and haunting pads of "Once This Fire Gathers Strength" that truly separate Vatican Shadow's work from the rest of his peers. Highly recommended as usual...
