Review: When Austin Cesear and Public Information combine, the results are never less than special; back in 2012, it was the London-based label which first served notice of the San Francisco-based artist's talent for bleak yet beautiful sonics with the excellent debut LP Cruise Forever. Since then Cesear has brought his sepia-toned brand of house and ambient music to Anthony Naples' Proibito label, and collaborated on a cassette release with Stefan Jos for Opal Tapes earlier this year. The sight of a new Cesear release on Public Information is most welcome then, with West Side apparently inspired by the artist's time spent amidst the industrial machinery and wildlife of Oakland, California. Spread across six tracks, the results veer through mood and tone, yet feel like one cohesive whole thanks to Cesear's ever refined touch.

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: With the label at the peak of its powers after a breakthrough 2014, one of the final Diagonal releases sees material from Powell's excellent Club Music EP treated and abused by the titan-esque figures of Ancient Methods and Richard H. Kirk. If you've seen Powell towering over some decks or heard his Melon Magic show on NTS it's likely you will recognise at least one of the four remixes here and it's hard to pick out one favourite. Ancient Methods goes all turbo-charged Nitzer Ebb on his opening Korpersaure91 remix of "Club Music" whilst the playfully juddering rhythms of the subsequent Pogo Im Saurebad effort should explain the title. Meanwhile Kirk boils down "So We Went Electric" to its barest rhythmic elements on a fizzing main mix whilst the accompanying dub is full on crazy.

Review: Matthew Watt aka Killawatt drops his debut LP on the UK's Osiris Music. Gnarly, psychedelic techno is the name of the game here, and there's a whopping twelve tracks up for grabs. Blending everything from UK bass to dubstep and even drone, Killawatt's particular brand of four-to-the-floor is both singular and caters to just about anyone whose into menacing beats and abstract sonics. We're particularly into the choppy beats on "Spinal Swarm" and the outsider techno rhythm that is "Excessive Hyperbole". This album is absolutely brimming with quality and singularity. More from Mr.Watt, please!

Review: Eschaton are back everyone: look out. The infamous collaboration between Ancient Methods and Orphx have decided to reign in terror once more on Belgian imprint Token so be prepared: this one is a one way ticket to hell and back! Starting out with the body bashing broken beat assault of "Deus Irae", they then serve up the slow burning post-apocalyptic anthem "Those Who Obey". "Answer My Prayer" definitely sounds more like Michael Wollenhaupt than anyone else: this is techno-doomcore like only he can create. Finally the hellish drone of "No Other Gods Before Me" ensures one seriously white knuckled duvet ride for you tonight!

Review: Since donning the Prostitutes pseudonym back in 2011, Cleveland's James Donadio has plied his trade on a variety of hyped labels, including Diagonal, Opal Tapes, Night School, Blowing Up The Workshop and Spectrum Spools. Here he returns to the latter with his sixth album in five years. Ghost Detergent is a typically fuzzy, forthright affair, with Donadio variously joining the dots between crusty electro, experimental techno, Cabaret Voltaire style industrial murkiness, mutant ghetto-house (the mad but brilliant "Skeptalepsy"), sludgy electronica ("Pregnant Toad"), and fluid, out-there electrofunk (the Dam Funk meets L.I.E.S wobble of "Fake Hawaiian Suit").

Review: It seems like yesterday that the Clan Destine Records label set up shop but, it has in fact been five years now, and the catalogue is looking extensive and expansive from our end. Newcomer Ian Hicks steps up and delivers a fine mini LP that was originally a cassette; luckily for us, the tape hiss hasn't been lost in the mix and each of these six tunes sound as grainy and distorted as anything we've heard this week. There's plenty of sublime material on here starting with the opening mind-bender that is "Cede To A Rival", but the mood deviates to house and techno thanks to other cuts like "Repression & Rectitude", or the grizzly, pseudo electro of "Find Inside". It's the spaces between the dance tunes that make this release all the more special, however, and Ian Hicks is most certainly a welcomed addition to our world. Tip!

Review: Exit supergroup Binary Collective (comprising dBridge, Joe Seven, Kid Drama and Consequence) lay down their debut document? And it?s every shade of retro-stated future you?d hoped it would be. Diving deep into the analogue abyss, each cut attempts to out-deep the next while remaining well weighted and groove-focused. ?Binary Theme? is Moroder on Mogadon, ?In Pursuit? is a car chase in toxic treacle, ?Cloud Creeping? is what triphop would sound like if it was invented 20 years later while ?Sentries Watch Us? sounds like one of Parliament?s more experimental jams but played and recorded under water. These daft comparisons are just the tip of the iceberg, though ? it?s hard to reference music as matchless as this? Listen and interpret it in your own universe.

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.

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".

Review: The tenth anniversary of Perc Trax has provided its owner Ali 'Perc' Wells with the opportunity to release his first ever commercial mix. Using a lot of his own material as well as some smart selections from the label, including Factory Floor's remix of Forward Strategy Group, Wells acquits himself skillfully. However, it's this collection of unreleased material that really stands out. Veering from Happa and Truss' stomping, distorted techno and the Magnetic North-style kicks of Perc's "Hyperlink" to the frazzled broken beats of Forward Strategy Group and Mick Finesse & Pinion's tracks, it also features the cavernous acid of Drvg Cvltvre's "(I Don't Want To Die In) James Franco's House" and the shock-horror rave stabs of Sawf's "Goves". There's no doubt about it - Perc Trax is celebrating its first decade in typically raucous style.

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: Dominic Fernow dons his Prurient hat for this split release with Karl O'Connor as Ugandan Methods. As you might expect, it's not for the light-hearted; "Call 1" features the Downwards boss' dense, grainy broken beats mixed with Fernow's wounded screeches amid bursts of white noise. "Call 2" is built on a similar approach, but this time the churning noise and dense drums are interspersed with dramatic, dark synths that spiral and twist. The third "Call" provides a surprise, heading back to the loopy techno of early Downwards, but it's only a temporary deviation and the fourth and final "Call" sees the duo deliver a drum-led, droning rhythm.

Review: The wolf and caps lock loving pair known simply as OAKE make a welcome return to Downwards, complementing their stunning debut from earlier this year with a four track EP that is, if anything, even heavier going! Quite where Karl O'Connor found OAKE isn't clear but the Berlin pair fit right in on the current configuration of Downwards alongside the likes of Cut Hands, Kerridge, DVA Damas et al. Whereas OAKE's three track debut Offenbarung was finely balanced between cinematic strings and vocals reminiscent of Coil and a pin-dropping bass-heavy dread shared with kindred spirits Demdike Stare and The Haxan Cloak, Vollstreckung is resolutely darker in execution. See, for example, the serating bass tones of "Sehtohree Diin Chromtas Vehns" and the cacophonous drums of "Tuturden Giit Chreteen Dwe" that both drowning out the more delicate vocals.

Harshing (Kevin Drumm remix) - (7:57)
from $1.85
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.

Review: A respected figure within the world of visual arts, which has seen him exhibit in numerous galleries across the world over the last two decades, Russell Haswell is perhaps best known for his prolific work in the realm of experimental noise. Brandishing a discography that dips back into the late '90s and features a raft of releases across Editions Mego, iDEAL and Warp. Haswell's latest solo album comes courtesy of Powell's increasingly essential Diagonal Records imprint, and sees a shift towards more overtly rhythmic material, with influences including Autechre, Aphex Twin, Adrian Sherwood and Napalm Death. As you'd expect, it's a bracing affair, and one that does a better job than most at connecting the dots between techno and noise.

Review: As 2014 has rolled on, Powell's Diagonal label has really gathered a sense of momentum and direction with its succession of releases. With the Juno office stereo still in recovery from the most excellent Shit & Shine LP Powder Horn, this new double pronged noise sermon from the masterful Russell Haswell only adds to their impressive year. Comprised of two 10-minute tracks, Double A is at times as bracing as anything else from the Haswell canon, with the scratched, spasmodic improvised sonics of lead track "Foxy" potentially capable of scaring Richard D James back into hiding. "One Take Dub No Edit" is described by Diagonal as a "flashback to a vital time when futurist Latin freestyle and industrial funk were the dancer's choice" and is perhaps the closest concession to the dancefloor from Haswell yet.

Review: After he dropped his 17-strong opus to Diagonal back in September, maverick noise botherer Russell Haswell gets bothered himself by a strong cast of other ne'erdowells from the outer reaches. The stars of the show are Autechre, who turn in something quite unusual for the occasion with a brutally reduced, interference reveling "Conformity Version" of "Heavy Handed Sunset". Label boss Powell brings some of his future-EBM stylings to his "Cov Megamix" of "Hardwax Flashback", while DJ Stingray does a fine and confrontational job in reworking "Gas Attack". It's a powerful collection of fringe sonic studies that manage to make experimentation lots of fun.

Review: year or two. While the imprint was previously focussed on bringing forth his own chilling pseudo-techno jams, he's just gone and dropped a two-tracker by none other than Consumer Electronics, a lil' old band comprised of Russell Haswell, Philip Best and Sarah Froelich. Conceptual might be the wrong way to describe these jams, but they certainly have an artistic air about them, where "Murder The Masters", for example, chucks a steady 4/4 kick below a dark and sinister male monologue. The B-side, "Alien Existence" evolves it into a relatively more musical affair, where the same voice is now accompanied by a female counterpart and a further injection of drones and metallic sonics.

Review: Simon Pomery aka Blood Music has already put out on Powell Diagonal label - a true lesson in contemporary power electronics and steely-eyed pseudo dance music - so we knew that we'd be getting our heads battered once more. The opener, "Chicks", is a harsh and abrasive tribal dance to Lucifer, its rumbling kicks bouncing off poisonous guitar riffs, whereas "Sharking" is all hollow and beatless, pushing forth the delays and effects in favour of the noise. On the flip, however, the aptly named "Badgering" spits brain-damaging layers of machine feedback from its underbelly, the only thing holding the track together being its utter violence. There's a gorgeous Helm remix on "Chicks", where the young Pan affiliate strips the tribalism down to industrial levels and fills the canvas with a generous portion of reverb. Hotly recommended!

Review: Diagonal has been one of 2014's standout labels, bringing innovation and most importantly a sense of humour to techno across a series of releases from the Russell Haswell, Bronze Teeth and more. It is however label founder Powell's own music that set the tone for the label, and on this retrospective collection the producer collects all of his music from the past three years released on labels including Diagonal, Liberation Technologies and The Death Of Rave. If you're yet to indulge in the gristly, skewed, off-centre brand of techno Powell has been blessing us with recently, this is the ideal place to get involved with one of techno's most exciting producers.
