Review: Hold tight Planet Mu fans! There's a Boxcutter album on the horizon. Yes, you heard. Otherwise known as Barry Lynn, the Irish dubstep, or now, probably more accurately described as "post-dubstep" artist, Boxcutter has been responsible for some superb Sqaurepusher, DJ Shadow and Four Tet influenced cuts in recent times on labels such as Planet Mu, Hotflush, Abucs and Kinnego ever since he made his debut in 2005. This is the first single to be taken from the aforementioned LP, The Dissolve, which is due to land in record stores next month and wow, are we excited about it! Getting straight down to business with DNA-bothering track "Allele", Boxcutter kicks off with some hollowed, distanced metallic SFX and purposeful clinking synth keys before building up textures to form the main tune. "Other People", meanwhile, tunes into a more pared down vibe with shaking maracas providing a nice texture beneath the squeaky synth flourishes and glazed 2 step drums, which set the pace for the piece. Delectable, tripped out electronica here and the sounds of now from Boxcutter... relish it.

Review: Combining the considerable force of Machinedrum and Om Unit in a frenzied distilling of the pair's penchant for old-skool breaks and the hyper-rhythms of footwork, Dream Continuum bring a rough and cheeky energy to bear on their first release on Planet Mu. "Giv A Lil Luv" shows no shame in slicing up Lisa Stansfield in a celebratory mash-up of 90s rave stabs, rolling jungle flurries and intricate drum machine work. "Set It" is more overt in its love of Chicago's latest gift to the world, mixing nagging toms with a tasty ragga twist for an absolute dancehall destroyer.

Review: Given the success of Amanda Brown's 100% Silk and Not Not Fun labels in recent times and Ital's integral musical role in their rise to prominence, it would be easy to accuse Planet Mu of being almost too canny in releasing the producer's debut album under the name. However the label run by Paradinas' has brushed off such criticism in the past - most recently with their Juke related endeavours - and Ital is likely to be open to a much wider audience on Planet Mu. There is much to reward the dedicated listener in Hive Mind, which at just five tracks long might confuse some but is filled with elongated and at times unhinged deviations through house music that touch on the excellence of his self released Culture Clubs 12" from last year. The sample that bursts through to deliver its money note in the opening track will sound weirdly prescient given recent sad celebrity news, whilst the remainder of the album sucks you in fully in a manner reminiscent of the recent Blondes album.
