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.

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: 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.

from $1.85
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.

Suspended Cadences (Four) - (19:59)
from $1.85
Review: As you might expect of a man formerly associated with Godflesh and Main, Robert Hampson's solo ventures have continued to delve deeper into the realms of drone and noise, here continuing a series of performances with two elongated pieces formed into an album for Mego. Both installments of "Suspended Cadences" deal in slowly shifting layers merged into one, eschewing any rhythm in favour of one sustained sonic presence that alters in shape as time drags on. It's an exercise in subtlety and sound design with the power to draw you in and subject you as the frequencies undulate gently.

Signaux 2 - (18:01)
from $1.85
Review: Robert Hampson is something of an unsung hero within the drone/noise circuit - an impressive catalogue of seminal releases dating from the 90s have yet to bring him into the limelight. This could all be pr-planned of course, and this latest LP on Editions Mego is certainly proof of his ability to produce rugged soundscape terrains and chilling sci-fi reminiscent electronic music. Both pieces are a near twenty minutes of mutating melodies, effects and synthesizers, with "Signaux 1" representing Hampson's more impulsive side - sharp tones and trickling noises develop into a thick layer of fuzzy sonics and feedback. "Signaux 2" is a more sparse outlook into the possibilities of tone repeats and oscillator drones, one which favours subtlety and fine tweaking. Highly recommended.

Review: The former Vex'd conspirator and Bristol-dwelling Mr Porter is carving out a fine new space for himself amongst like-minded noise-tinkerers such as Emptyset, and here he delivers a new long-player of nail-biting soundscapes that successfully refigure the bombast of his previous endeavours and applies it to more abstract realms. For every cacophonic crescendo there is an arresting lull, as fearsomely demonstrated on "Gravity", and it's astounding just how much this is about melody, harmony and timbre as much as sonic texture. Steeped in evocative string arrangements and ever moving through different scenarios, the tapestry woven here is a must for anyone craving the intersection between classical and avant-garde composition.

Ketos Troias - (7:46) 128 BPM

Review: Mike Parker graces Repitch for the third installment of its 10-inch series. Anyone familiar with the US DJ/producer will know that he has developed a singular sound since the 90s and this two-tracker is no exception. "Ketos Troias" is a subdued affair, its drum patterns bubbling beneath the surface as Parker sketches out a hypnotic tonal sequence. "Through Cylinders" is darker and more intense; like many of his best tracks, it sounds influenced by the repetitive sounds of early F.U.S.E material as well as hardcore rave stabs to weave an intense groove that is tailor-made for smoke-filled rooms.

Review: Roly Porter's recent output finally earned him a place in the big league, and his recent remix of Snow Ghosts on London's Houndstooth was a real step forward for the producer, both artistically and career-wise. His second LP, Third Law, comes through courtesy of New York's excellent Tri Angle label, and the mighty "4101" - released as a single back in Novemeber, paves the way for an album full of suspense and surrealism. This is no job for anyone looking for peace or meditation, but rather one for the more open-minded. "Mass", for instance, unleashes boulders of bass and noise over glitchy half-beats, whereas the tunes like "High Places" sound like the inside of an interstellar cruiser, and the sublime "In System" reminds us of Apex Twin's strand of ambient...a cold, pensive bundle of euphoric energy. Recommended.

Review: Perhaps best known as The Subliminal Kid or for his role in Roll The Dice, Peder Mannerfelt has equally garnered plenty of praise for his The Swedish Congo Record on Archives Interieures this year. Now he returns with more challenging deconstructions of techno formulas on this self-released EP, which leads in with the abrasive scrape of "Acid Drop". "DB At Holger" is a more patient offering that throws in some tongue-in-cheek samples amongst a minimalistic hum of a production, and "The Limits Of Control" too exercises patience although with a very different sound palette. It's hard to know which way each track will turn next on this wonderfully unpredictable release.

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: Kareem and Huron are known associates. They have both appeared on Berlin's Zhark label and they seem like an utterly fitting pair to be calling the shots for the next episode of Noiztank. The former has also appeared alongside Ancient Methods, so we know that a certain level of quality will be guaranteed form the get-go; and this is something we've come to expect anyway from this young and exciting imprint. Kareem opens the EP with two cinematic segments of sound: the first "The Borromeos Arrival" is a hollow slice of ambient brain dynamite, while "Meyrink" is the sort of spectral techno that we're usually used to hearing him churn out. Huren's "Rituel Sonore" is a startling blast of whipping snares and ice-cold sonics all wrapped up in a tight groove, and "Partial Dimensions" is a swamped-out, dubwise techno gunshot that'll please everyone from the Basic Channel followers to the Regis aficionados.

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: 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: 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.

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.

Harshing (Kevin Drumm remix) - (7:57)

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.
