Paki-Visnadi – Imaginary Choreography

by on at 09:16am

The press release for Paki-Visnadi’s Imaginary Choreography, out on the eclectically elegant Antinote, alerts us to the mythical discovery of these recordings that seems to hail from the years when markets still yielded jewels. Filmmaker Johanna Heather Anselmo, partner to Antinote’s Iueke and a cultured hand at rummaging through boxes of old tapes, found a BASF tape in a Parisian flea market, but instead of it containing some yé-yé rehearsal of upper class teenagers it was something really quite exceptional.

Panoram – Background Story

by on at 16:08pm

By his own enigmatic standards, Panoram has been rather up front about the inspirations for this sophomore set, which follows his superb 2014 debut album for Lindsay Todd’s Firecracker Recordings, Everyone Is A Door. That album, a delicious collection of hard-to-define musical snapshots, ideas and interludes – seemingly created from a mixture of old analogue synthesizers, samples, and the confused cacophony in his head – arrived with little fanfare and seemingly no solid concept. It was no worse for it, and impressed partly through his inability to settle on one stylistic thread. It held together partly due to Todd’s impeccable A&R skills, one suspects, but also because there was an innate sense of hazy atmosphere running through it.

Abul Mogard / Harmonious Thelonious – Schleißen 1

by on at 10:24am

It’s not easy to keep up with the ebb and flow of Stuart Leath’s Emotional Empire. It doesn’t feel like a stretch to call it an empire even if it has only been in operation for a few years, but between Emotional Rescue, Response, Relish and [Emotional] Especial, already a staggering mountain of releases and reissues sits awaiting the intrepid digger. The latest arm of Leath’s endeavours involves the Schleißen series, which is dedicated to abstract drone and ambient pieces from a diverse range of artists stretched across four installments.

Robert Aiki Aubrey Lowe & Ariel Kalma – We Know Each Other Somehow

by on at 09:10am

Based around the brilliantly simple idea of inter-generational musical collaboration, the FRKWYS series has thus far thrown up some memorable albums from Arp and Anthony Moore, Blues Control and Laraaji, Sun Araw and M. Geddes Gengras with The Congos, and, most recently, Steve Gunn and Mike Cooper. The genius of the series lies not in the inter-generational aspect, but rather the often absorbing and beguiling results of these imaginative collaborations. RVNG Intl boss Matt Werth has proved something of an expert at bringing artists together, with results that often combine the best of each musician’s style and repertoire into something thrillingly fresh, atmospheric and – in the case of this 12th installment of the series – magical.

Boof – The Hydrangeas Whisper

by on at 09:55am


There are many reasons to love Maurice Fulton, not least the majestic, off-kilter nature of his finest musical moments, but his pig-headed desire to stick two fingers up at the music industry machine is arguably not one of them. While his no-nonsense, DIY approach is admirable, and no doubt a product of mistreatment or loss of revenues due to various labels he’s been signed to going under, it does make keeping track of his output somewhat difficult. Since launching his digital-only Bubbletease Communications label some years back, Fulton has steadfastly refused to play the media game and does nothing in the way of promotion. He simply releases stuff when he feels like it, leaving the public to discover the music – or not – in their own time. You’re either in the club, or you’re not. Fulton’s not going to work hard for your dollars or pounds.

Various Artists – The Dying Lights

by on at 11:57am

It’s rare for a label to be as open about their backwards gaze as Lux Rec, who define their focus “on elements from the early electronic scene, with the intent of redefining and shedding a new light on it.” When you look at the range of artists involved with the label, the declaration makes total sense. From Jared Wilson and R-A-G to Helena Hauff, all the artists releasing on Lux are bound by their use of archaic equipment to yield new routes through house, techno, electro and beyond. It’s not an easy job to find innovation within the limitations of hardware that has been used constantly for more than thirty years, yet these are all artists that manage to sound original every time, and it’s a credit to Lux Rec that they recognise such talent and can curate their releases so consistently.

Scientific Dreamz Of U/Junior Loves – The Dreamcode

by on at 15:59pm

Those with a penchant for pagan psychedelia, musical mysticism and kaleidoscopic electronics may already have come across Scientific Dreamz of U and Junior Loves, a mysterious twosome whose Kestrel Explorations show on NTS Radio delivers this kind of intoxicating sound on a regular basis. The London-based duo’s music seems to come from a bygone age, when acid-fried rave casualties wildly debated the higher significance of the number 23, at all-night Megadog parties and skuzzy basements, lit only by the purple fuzz of ultraviolet lights.

Strategy – Seeds Of Paradise

by on at 13:39pm

For all his championing of local talent – from Bristol stalwarts Bass Clef, Peverelist, Kowton, Kahn, Outboxx and Rhythmic Theory, to rising stars Shanti Celeste, Andy Mac and Facta – Idle Hands bossman Chris Farrell has always looked further afield for inspiration. Not just in terms of the artists showcased on the Stokes Croft-based imprint but also musically. While Idle Hands has long been held in high regard for its regular forays into techno, and deep house and post-dubstep fusion, Farrell has occasionally dipped his toes into more obviously dancehall, garage and carnival-friendly waters. Farrell himself has a wide musical knowledge, as anyone who’s witnessed one of his real ale-fuelled sets at infamous Stokes Croft boozer The Bell will attest; you’re just as likely to hear fuzzy post-punk, industrial strength jungle and rousing disco as baked techno, sleepy deep house and hypnotic minimal gear.

Various Artists – Lifesaver Compilation 2

by on at 09:16am

As a club with a record label, it could be argued that Offenbach-based Robert Johnson is treading a path taken by other so-called “super clubs”. Yet Ata and Sebastian Kahr’s club, located just across the river from Frankfurt, makes an unlikely super club. While its reputation is equal to the likes of Berghain, Fabric, and Amsterdam’s now sadly departed Trouw, Robert Johnson has a capacity a little over 250. Of course, it’s this intimacy, coupled with a superb Martin Audio soundsystem, on which the venue’s reputation was built. The label itself, established a decade after the club’s unveiling in 1999, has a similar intimacy. It was initially established, like Fabric’s offshoot imprint, to release branded mix CDs from residents, friends and regular guests.

Daniele Ciullini – Domestic Exile (Collected Works 82-86)

by on at 11:07am

A few years ago The Guardian decided to run a series on Italian popular music, part of which involved an interview with Alessio Natalizia of Walls. Here Natalizia was asked about the differences between making music in Italy and in the UK. “What does Italian music sound like, anyway?” Natalizia retorted, adding, “we’ve never been able to take Italian pop music around the world in the same way we have with food.” After a few Walls and Not Waving records, and having curated the Mutazione compilation issued through Strut Records, here comes Natalizia taking Italian music around the world in the form of Daniele Ciullini with Domestic Exile (Collected Works 82-86).

Teresa Winter – Oh Tina, No Tina

by on at 15:40pm

How strange are bodies? An interesting metaphysical question and also title of the track Reckno plucked from Teresa Winter’s new tape to coax people into investing in her “devotional VHS post rave meltdowns”. It’s a ploy that worked instantly on this writer with “How Strange Are Bodies?” a delightfully bizarre composition where Winter’s voice is twisted to the point of incomprehension over a backdrop of fluttering electronics that seem to acquire their own vocal harmony. As wonderful as that track is, Winter’s tape Oh Tina, No Tina doesn’t simply repeat this trick over the course of its nine tracks. It is, instead, a lot more ambitious; a dizzying ride that fills me with romantic notions of founding a record label in order to facilitate a vinyl release the more I listen.

Black Zone Myth Chant – Mane Thecel Phares

by on at 15:07pm


There’s always been something oddly unsettling about the work of French experimentalist High Wolf. The prolific producer’s work under that alias – a mixture of exotic, Indian-influenced psychedelia, drone, ambience and experimental oddities – is often more hypnotic than claustrophobic, but it’s rarely less than fearlessly unusual. Even so, it’s positively cheery compared to his 2011 debut under the Black Zone Myth Chant moniker, Straight Cassette.

MB/OD – Shplittin The Shtones

by on at 09:43am

Isn’t perception a funny thing? One of last year’s most unusually brilliant records came not from a Berlin bunker or a London atelier but the Dublin suburb of Rathmines. There I was, spending my time pontificating and writing about music from supposed creative hubs when one of the most daring, exotic records is made down the road (I live in the neighbouring, sleepier suburb of Rathfarnham). For those readers who aren’t acquainted with Dublin and its many charms, Rathmines is populated by students, eccentrics, dropouts, hipsters, pimps, pushers, immigrants and even some families. It is a wonderful melting pot and a sociologist’s wet dream; its charity shops, cafes and ramshackle main street providing countless people-watching opportunities.

Kerridge – Always Offended Never Ashamed

by on at 09:39am

The garbled vocal intoning incomprehensible profanities! The strobe light synth flashes! The overblown guitar blasts! Is it an old Sisters of Mercy record played at 33 rpm? No, it’s the new Samuel Kerridge album. All joking aside, the opening track, “GOFD”, from the UK artist’s second album sounds like it was inspired in part by old Goth records. Having risen to prominence with releases on the Downwards label, Kerridge and his partner Hayley have set up their own label Contort – named after the events that they run in Berlin.

Xosar – BOP004

by on at 09:34am

When Sheela Rahman first emerged on Rush Hour, L.I.E.S. Records and Créme Organization, she seemed to be carving out a particular niche as a purveyor of sweetly melodic, warm and inviting hardware house that sparkled as much as it pumped, sharply produced and easy on the ears. After keeping relatively quiet release-wise through 2014, she’s left it until now to unveil two releases that smartly rip that perception to pieces. Her appearance on Luke Wyatt’s Valcron Video imprint is a strung out excursion into hazy techno and drone, while this album for Black Opal turns the heat up with a selection that leans more towards aggressive and wildly distorted bangers far removed from the work she made her name on.

Diamantener Oberhof – Diamantener Oberhof

by on at 09:25am

Vrystaete is a new division of the Dutch Enfant Terrible operation, which already numbers the Gooiland Elektro label among its ranks. According to its manifesto, this new label addition to the Enfant Terrible roster is ‘founded to release free spirited music’ and to provide a soundtrack to ‘a world where time is not defined by a clock’. It certainly sounds like Diamantener Oberhof is living up to Vrystaete’s ambitious brief. The work of German artists Brannten Schnüre and Johannes Schebler, who is behind the Baldruin project, Diamantener Oberhof is a reflective, at times introspective work that provides the soundtrack to a world of their own making.

Palmbomen II – Palmbomen II

by on at 09:25am

Kai Hugo has forged a career out of creating music that matches his longing to escape the grey, concrete surrounds of the European cities in which he’s lived. Rooted in cheap synthesizers, chugging Italo-disco style arpeggios, hallucinatory ‘60s pop, Kraftwerk and off-kilter film and TV soundtracks, the Dutchman’s music is rarely less than humid and colourful. Many critics have called his work as Palmbomen “tropical” and there’s some truth in this, though it’s a far dirtier, dustier and imaginative approach than Peaking Lights or Secret Circuit. But then neither of those acts grew up in Amsterdam, surrounded by body music obsessives , Italo-disco collectors and selectors, and the nearby influence of Legowelt and The Hague.

David Borden – Music For Amplified Keyboard Instruments

by on at 10:03am

Spectrum Spools has always worn its influences on its sleeve, but it’s been rarer to find the label actually reaching backward to highlight the artists that shaped the sound so closely attached to John Elliot and the Cleveland set. 2012 saw a reissue of the undersold, now hopefully classic record Flux by Robert Turman, followed by a repress of Sensation Fixer Franco Falsini’s mellow soundtrack to a film about cocaine called Cold Nose. Both are heady, semi-ambient affairs, combining experimentalism with motorique persuasiveness and an eye for sequenced electronic music as an inwardly psychedelic and progressive movement – which obviously plugs into the contemporary work put out by Spectrum Spools.

L’Estasi Dell’oro – I Look Upon Nature While I Live in a Steel City

by on at 09:10am

I Look Upon Nature While I Live in a Steel City by L’Estasi Dell’oro is one of the most hyperactive techno long players you’re ever likely to hear. The brainchild of American producer Christopher Ernst, the album ranges in sound from funereal ambient textures to raging industrial rhythms. It’s an artistic departure for both Ernst, who heretofore has focused on deep techno and ambient, and for Dutch imprint Field, whose split releases provide the platform for producers to make more introspective tracks than usual.

Linkwood – Expressions

by on at 10:27am

It would be easy to cast Nick Moore in the role of deep house’s forgotten man, after all it’s been some five years since he impressed with the debut Linkwood album, System, on Prime Numbers. Moore may have since dismissed the album (he told Australian website The Orange Press in 2013 that it “pissed him off” and “didn’t sound like me”), yet System remains a set brimming with ideas that somehow managed to draw together many disparate musical strands while making perfect sense. While there were references to his early releases – notable for their ability to join the dots between soul, disco, hip-hop, jazz, boogie and deep house – it also introduced the deeper, woozier and altogether dreamier brand of deep house with which he’s subsequently excelled. It seemed to mark the end of one chapter of his career, and the beginning of another. In truth, it was more of a full stop.
