Review: With many listeners still coming to terms with the rush of his Theta Wave Brain Sync long player on Deepblak, Eric Douglas Porter is back with more outer-space wares built to make you question everything you thought you knew about cosmic electronic music. Circuitous has some moments of tender beauty and some moments of fiery experimentalism, but it never stops being thrilling, shocking and captivating. With the spirit of free jazz, the convention-less beats of the Brainfeeder posse and an irrepressible delivery that is all his own, Afrikan Sciences has excelled even his high standards on Circuitous.

Review: As one of the world's more renowned mastering engineers at Dubplates & Mastering in Berlin, Rashad Becker is making that rare leap from post-production back down the signal chain to deliver this long player for PAN. It's an apt destination for the sounds contained within, as Becker twists and contorts a satisfying spread of noises from the ominous to the humourous, wielding a fearsome grasp of sound design and achieving a staggering depth of detail in the lurid netherworld his music creates. There's musicality locked into the fluttering pitches of his devices, whether they might be real world instruments mutated via digital means, or 1s and 0s kneaded into organic matter. Either way Becker's take on noise will grab you by the ears and drag you down into the audible mulch with glee.

Review: With his star in rapid ascent what with releases on Keysound and Tectonic, Beneath broadens his remit from the more funky-influenced material of the last few years to doff a cap to his home town of Sheffield. "Bored 2" definitely sports some of the clanging experimentation of the bleep-era Warp releases, albeit shot through with the sophistication of modern production. "Occupy" may move with slithering steppers rhythms, but there's still a bit of LFO heft to the square wave bassline, while "One Blings" has a curious sideline in micro house with the catchy melodic twirls that hop around in the more typically bleak surroundings of a Beneath production.

Review: Tapping into the more techno-minded of PAN's output, this new collaboration sees Golden Pudel residents F#x and Helena Hauff knocking heads for two tracks of grainy, thudding analogue business that stay true to the label's left-leaning reputation. "Prototype" is undeniable in its sense of purpose, with a measured but insistent Italo bassline buried under a grind of decaying synth filed into a catchy melodic refrain that at once strains at the leash as it falls in line with the unflinching kick. "N313P" is more startling in its layers of bright melody, still spluttering through imprecise processing but coming off equally tough and effervescent after the fact.

Review: The notion of a second record from Black Sites on PAN was first mooted by the Berlin label back in January and finally arrives to sign off another year of fine releases overseen by Bill Kouligas. As Black Sites, the Golden Pudel pairing of Helena Hauff and F#X has exhibited an auspicious talent for delivering mucky, freeform dancefloor beaters that tend to stretch past the ten minute mark in just a few releases. Title track "Unit 2669" certainly continues in this fashion, ripping through almost 12 minutes of grotty industrial strength 303 action, but "MOCKBA" hints that Hauff and F#X have other cards up their collective sleeves. Here the pair dip into the kind of abstract electronics you'd find on a Container record. A great way to sign off 2014 for PAN.

from $1.92
Review: When two producers at the edges of house and electronica like Fell and Erik 'Errorsmith' Wiegand get together, it is no surprise that the results sound out of this world. The only reference point is Workshop's roster, but Protogravity is situated at the very fringes of that sound. The title track is pieced together from tinny, hollowed out drums and fragmented, spliced vocals. In a similar vein is "Atomic 80", with its dark, drum-led rhythm and subtle samples. However, neither track can compare to "Cuica Digitales". Underpinned by tinkling bells, its chanting vocal sample is more hypnotic than a vat-load of peyote.

Review: Although his computer compositions for the Entr'acte imprint are steeped in the theoretical end of electronic music, some of Lee Gamble's earliest musical experiences were as an active participant in the jungle scene of the mid 90s, regularly DJing on pirate radio. Diversions 1994-1996 sees Gamble take samples of jungle mixtapes from the era and recompose them in an utterly unique way; honing in on the spaces between the breaks he loops and stretches out brief moments of music into haunting, post-apocalyptic soundscapes, allowing the original moments of euphoria to decay on the breeze. Despite its slightly difficult premise, Diversions is actually one of the most accessible PAN releases to date - and should serve as an ideal entry point for those wishing to explore Gamble's work and PAN further.

Review: Lee Gamble's Diversions 1994-1996 saw the producer construct an immersive sonic landscape from an old jungle mixtape; its ambient, largely beatless compositions a world apart from the leftfield techno contained in his swift follow up, Dutch Tvashar Plumes. An album of heavily processed textures, tracks like "Skorokhodz" and "ExpRand Trace" bristle with a computerized sheen reminiscent of Actress, "Coma Skank" is characterized by its fuzzy, tribal clatter, and "Nowhen Hooks" even provides Gamble's own weird take on house music. Dutch Tvashar Plumes feels very much like a companion piece to Diversions - most obviously evidenced in the cavernous ambient interludes like "Black Snow", but also in the sense that the mangled rhythms feel like the structural skeleton that was ripped out of Diversions. Undoubtedly one of the albums of the year from one of the labels of the year.

Review: After winning hearts from critics and listeners alike with his two 2012 albums, Lee Gamble delivers a hotly anticipated follow-up for his spiritual home, PAN. The tone of Koch is similarly concerned with plush ambient tones and murky atmospherics, while the beats meander from techno thrust (as on "Motor System") via fractious weirdo house shuffle (see "Nueme") through to intricate broken beat minimalism (courtesy of "Voxel City Spirals"). These differences are bound together by the immersive tones that linger consistently over the album, giving rise to a release that should satisfy anyone craving more of the goodness that populated Diversion 1994-1996.

Review: Such is the standard of material since Steve "Heatsick" Warwick surfaced on vinyl for the first time with the superb Dream Tennis for Cocktail D'Amour last year, you kind of wish some entrepreneurial spirit would look into digging out the Berlin based producer's CDr and c90 back catalogue for reissue on wax too! The Deviation EP further strengthens the relationship between Warwick and Pan, the flawless and attention to detail minded label that released the excellent Heatsick LP Intersex last year, and sees Warwick continue to explore the limits of his Casiotone keyboard on this release, with the title track setting the tone. A deliciously cheeky and off kilter midi riff is at the core, snaking and skanking its way through an arrangement that slips into heavenly machine made incandescence and back.

Review: Utilising only a Casiotone keyboard, a few guitar pedals and not much else, Stephen Warwick creates a unique take on dance music with a charmingly lo-fi naivety . Opening with "Taxi Zum No", featuring the producer humming over the top of a looped sample of The Chi-Lites' "The Coldest Days of My Life", he sets out his stall as a producer of weirdly esoteric music with its tongue firmly in cheek. The 13 minute long "Ice Cream On Concrete" seems to be an attempt to invoke some kind of musical vortex through its hypnotic bossa nova drums and decayed synth tones, while "Tertiary" successfully channels the spirit of Fingers Inc with its mid-tempo pace and gorgeous melody. "Von Andren Ufer" which ends the EP is 14 minutes of beatless, spaced-out musical slurry (in the best possible way), recalling the cracked dub of Ekoplekz.

Review: With a particularly expressive, adventurous approach to sound design and abstract composition, Luke Younger's Helm project has matured gracefully over the past seven years. He reaches his sixth album, and second for PAN, in fine fettle, matching eerie patience with studio flamboyance in a balance that few manage to successfully achieve. Olympic Mess moves from cloying hypnotism on the aptly titled "I Exist In A Fog" to unsettlingly spacious tension on "Often Destroyed", but rarely do the tracks idle for too long in one place. It's a pitfall of so much noise and drone music that Younger has side-stepped with ease on his latest effort.

Review: A collaborator of Stephen Warwick (aka Heatsick) under the Birds of Delay project, Luke Younger has also been producing solo under the Helm alias for some time, clocking up four albums, and several CDR and tape releases to his name. Impossible Symmetry is as good as any place to start; employing electro-acoustic techniques that tap into an industrial sensibility, the album moves from the blasted landscape of "Miniatures", the eternally tortured wails of "Liskojen Yo" and the soothing background hum of "Arcane Matters", interrupted by the tolling of processed church bells before moving to the terrifying interference of "Stained Glass Electric" and finishing on the arcane choir of "Above All & Beyond".

Review: Luke Younger has been steadily amassing a formidable back catalogue of noise and avant garde recordings for many years now, but it was an appearance on PAN that really shot him into the consciousness of the wider electronic community. He returns to the label with another four studies that show off his visceral talent, wielding abrasive textures with abandon and keeping his constructions ever moving and violent. There's a lot of high-frequency distortion whirling around the mix on all these tracks, but behind those sonic weapons Younger has woven a rich spread of tones that add to the clamouring atmosphere.

Review: Returning to PAN for the first time since 2011's 19-minute sound piece How Wheeling Feels When The Ground Walks Away, New York-based conceptual artist James Hoff presents Blaster. Based around an intriguing concept to say the least, Blaster is described as a "document of his explorations of computer viruses as agents within the composition process," using the computer virus of the same name to "infect" 808 rhythms and construct all-new shapes out of the resulting audio mulch. As you might expect from such a concept, the resulting audio is extreme to say the least; glitchy, abrasive and wildly unpredictable, each of the eight tracks splutter and misfire like a jammed machine gun. While PAN's recently released Miseri Lares from Valerio Tricoli showed the label's more delicate experimental side, Blaster is very much PAN in full on sonic assault mode.

Review: The marvellous PAN kicks starts 2013 with yet another unusual and relentless medley of deranged sonic brutality. This time it's a debut release from Jar Moff, an elusive Athenian who has put together a vast landscape of melodies, bridging the gap between harsh noise and gentle, desolate harmonics. Both sides of the wax plate are a near fifteen minutes each and in all honesty, it's a rather daunting task to condense them into suitable words: the first side "Tziaitzomanasou" is so diverse that it could almost represent different scenes of a film, where broken shards of glass and spine-chilling screams rapidly evolve into desolate synth keys, only to be swallowed once more by a merciless wave of sparse crackles, bubbling glitches and field recordings. The title track "Commercial Mouth" retains a similar superficial coating of organic noises and sinister arrangements, except this time the heart of the piece is embedded in a musical, almost jazzy vibe. Its looped samples contain a myriad of musical strands, from trumpets to synthesizers and drums - it's an ingenious reincarnation of what happens when classical styles meet with the sheer force of the world's many sonic facets. Warmly recommended.

Review: Rummaging through a veritable dusty attic of creaks, groans, tinkles and tumbles, Eli Keszler has poured all manner of sounds into a cauldron already bubbling with scraped guitar strings and loose drum-bothering for this lengthy exercise in sound crafting. While these compositions may not be the most relaxing of listens, there's no arguing with the sheer scale of the production. Every tiniest detail is beautifully rendered, with the spacing in the mix wielded for a startling impact which finds these swarms of noise daggering into your head like acupuncture needles. Utterly fascinating as per usual from PAN.

Review: You might recognise Konrad Sprenger from his Jorg Hiller moniker but, if that still doesn't ring any bells, then we can can tell you that this fine electronic artist doesn't release all too often, so this is a special appearance indeed. Stack Music comes through the excellent PAN imprint from Berlin and, as you can see, Bill Kouligas knows exactly the right thing to do when recruiting new faces onto his catalogue. "Opening" is a fantastic, folky sort of ballad in which guitar strings dissolve and bond magnificently to an ocean of sparkly electronics, while "Finale" opts for a much more brooding, introspective sort of approach where bells and drones combine to form a new sort of sound. On the flip, "Rondo" experiments with piano keys, except that they've become almost unrecognisable here, and "Largo" flutters pleasantly across an upbeat sort of landscape. This is PAN's Spring-Summer look. Recommended.

Review: PAN deliver a quite wonderful album in Lifted, a rather special collaborative project initiated by Andrew Field-Pickering of Future Times. Working with Matthew Papich, aka Co LA, the man known as Max D called on some highly talented friends to contribute to this debut Lifted album with Jeremy Hyman, Motion Graphix, Gigi Masin, Dawit Eklund and Jordan GCZ all featuring. Unlike much of their personal outputs, Lifted only use house and techno as a tool on which to base their diverse and abstract range of sounds, a primary base or starting point if you will. Tracks like "Intoo", "Bell Slide" and "Mint" are loosely held together by a pulse which resembles a beat, while much of the rest of the LP is coated in a deeply rich and deeply melodic air, verging onto almost jazzy territories in parts. It's certainly an interesting new project and a perfect addition to the PAN dynasty.

Review: The Scythians EP from M.E.S.H. was one of the undoubted highlights of PAN's year, and here the title track gets a surprise batch of remixes from four producers, each taking the track's scrambled future club styles into equally uncharted territory. UK producer Grovestreet fuses grime and techno Night Slugs style on his remix, while DJ J Heat transforms it into a floor-ready Jersey club banger. M.E.S.H.'s Janus cohort Lotic offers an ethereal revision taking the original into darker terrain, but its Logos that offers the most radical version, turning it into a near-beatless slice of weightless instrumental grime.

Review: PAN is a label which has grown to staggering heights over the last year, winning over music aficionados with its inherent diversity and sheer unpredictability thanks to the mind of the label boss Bill Kouligas. We have a new name in the form of the Greek chamber music trio Mohammad, who provide an excellent addition to an increasingly stunning back catalogue of noise, power-electronics, techno and everything in between. Mohammad has thus far appeared on Barcelona's Antifrost label, and for their PAN debut Som Sakrifis, the trio have prepared something rather special across the record's three long form drone pieces: "Sakrifis" is a droned-out, grey-scaled expedition into guitar feedback and scuffling semi-percussion shots and whilst "Lapli Tero" coats itself in a considerably less tame surrounding, the concept remains similar and equally as detached from reality "Liberig Min" contains more field recordings and its seventeen-minute duration is a compelling display of sounds and sonic collage created by the trio's cello, contrabass and oscillators.

Review: The alias of Kouhei Matsunaga, a musician who has moved from breakbeat into noise and back again, NHK'Koyxen is the producer's attempt to reconcile his love of chopped up rhythms with PAN's experimental aesthetic. Recalling the ultra-processed tones of Mark Fell and his work as SND, Dance Classics Vol 1 is, as its name might suggest, a deconstruction of dance music's many forms. "568_491" is a lithe mutation on dubstep's structure, "530" delivers some chopped up hip-hop, while the reverb heavy chords of "638" sound like Basic Channel as done by Aphex Twin.

Review: Kouhei Matsunaga has an illustrious career in experimental frequencies behind him, having first appeared on Mille Plateaux back in 1998 and collaborating with such heavyweights as Merzbow. On this second instalment of Dance Classics, the Osaka-born producer tackles more of his brink-teetering dancefloor cuts across a range of tempos and rhythms. Tracks such as "703" and "670" stalk on broken beats, ringing and humming with distortion but locked to a stout groove. Elsewhere there's plenty of leftfield techno malevolence to be found on tracks such as the looping peak-time bomb "112" or the drunken freakout of "101" with its slippery bass and echoing droplets of melody. It's an album that takes you to a wild, exciting concoction of new headspaces without compromising on the function of dance music.

Review: After the meteoric impact of his self-released singles and spots on Hessle Audio, Power Vacuum and Bleep, the electronic music world has been waiting patiently for TJ Hertz to step up and share a wider vista of his sound world. This debut LP for PAN does not disappoint, channelling the electronica quality of his most crushing club music and giving it a chance to roam that bit more freely. The beats still hit hard on the likes of "Ratchet", but that's not their only purpose. With sound design and general production fireworks at the forefront, whether you can dance to this or not is unimportant; what matters is how completely edge-of-your-seat thrilling it is to listen to, from every space age sweep to each grubby reverb impulse. We always knew he had it in him, and Objekt has more than delivered on that promise.

Review: Rashad Becker's new full length album Traditional Music of Notional Species Vol. II is a continuation of his highly-acclaimed first volume, released in 2013. Incorporating more instrumental-sounding components, the Berlin based musician and mastering engineer is well known for his attention to detail across his work. As label PAN best describe themselves, Becker's "unique techniques and expressive manipulations of sound are laid bare in an exhilarating new form, stylistically distinctive and uncompromising." Indulge in this series of warped and challenging soundscapes that explore unusual and inventive methods of the signal chain, offering some rather curious results.

Review: Revisiting one of the label's best-loved releases with remix package is an oft used strategy, but being PAN, the reworking of Heatsick's Deviation from Mark Fell's Sensate Focus moniker is as atypical as you could imagine. Although Fell has already used the persona to present his unique take on house music on a number of releases, applying digital synthesis techniques to achieve a hyper-clean yet soulful sound, the results of the brilliantly named Deviation Heat Treated are some of his best work, keeping the playful nature of the original's cheap Casio production values and sharpening it up for adventurous dancefloors.
