Ontario Hosptital – Future Ready

by on at 09:17am

Readers of Juno Plus may have recently seen an extensive feature on the story behind The Wipe by Teste on the site. One of the most influential techno records of the past two decades; it’s hard to trace a musical connection to this release on Stephen Bishop’s label. However, there is a link and Dave Foster from Teste and Rich Oddie from Orphx are behind Ontario Hospital. Like Adam X, whose Sonic Groove label he has put out key records on, Oddie and his production partner Christine Sealey in the Orphx project inhabit the shadowlands between club techno and industrial noise, sometimes referred to as ‘power noise’.

Dolo Percussion – Dolo 2

by on at 09:05am

Andrew Field-Pickering has history when it comes to drums, famously drumming in a DC punk band early in his musical journey. This freestyle, in-your-face approach can regularly be heard in the off-kilter rhythms, hissing cymbals and fearlessly dense beats that characterize much of his output as Maxmillion Dunbar and Max D. With the first Dolo Percussion EP issued by LIES – simply titled Dolo Percussion, and boasting numbered tracks with no other information – he indulged this part of his musical persona, breathing new life into the humble DJ tool. In the process, he came on like Ginger Baker with an MPC, or Buddy Miles hammering away at a TR-909. This was drum machine jazz, pure and simple, with a raw and heavy undercurrent of classic Chicago house. It wasn’t to everyone’s taste, of course, it takes an adventurous DJ to drop six minutes of freestyle, body-popping drum machine abuse.

Various Artists – Chapter 2: Cohorts

by on at 09:39am

Musically speaking, Huntleys & Palmers has always been very good at keeping its options open; the label may have been founded to release the humid rhythms and sweaty melodies of Auntie Flo, but their outlook has always been a little more forthright. It’s true that they tend to look further afield for artists than most – think Argentina, Chile, South Wales and Frankfurt, as well as their well-known links to London and Glasgow – but the music they release often has more in common with robust house and techno than the rave-friendly music hybrids coming out of certain parts of Africa, South and Central America.

Psychic TV – Alien Be-In Remixes

by on at 09:31am

On its latest release, Dark Entries maps out the murky intersection between the tail end of ‘80s industrial and the (b)rave new world of ‘90s dance music. Psychic TV was Genesis P. Orridge and Peter Christopherson’s post-Throbbing Gristle project, one which was rooted in experimental, psychedelic sounds to begin with. However, it seems that the act wasn’t impervious to what was happening around it and by 1990 Psychic TV, which by then had shed Christopherson as a member, released Towards Thee Infinite Beat.

Achterbahn D’Amour – Odd Movements The Remixes

by on at 09:35am

A year on from their debut album, Achterbahn D’Amour are seeing their work being handed over to a strong cast of characters who bring four distinct approaches to bear on the original material. While the original release on Acid Test was devoted to acidic jams of varying intensity, on this jam-packed 12” all manner of leftfield house and techno concerns are embraced as a means of looking beyond the dominant 303 throb and lifting the hood on the other moods and textures the trio embedded into their crowning work.

Low Jack – Imaginary Boogie

by on at 09:46am

Philippe Hallais could have gone either way. Formerly part of production duo Darabi, the Parisian re-emerged under the name Low Jack in late 2012 on local label Get The Curse with some accomplished, if not especially distinctive, house cuts that were rough round the edges. Working from this formula, Hallais could have mined out a relatively successful few years of DJ bookings off the back of similarly executed twelves. Instead it seems like Hallais has been creatively spurred on by those around him in Paris, like Quentin Vandewalle of Antinote and L.I.E.S. boss Ron Morelli. The resultant Low Jack material for In Paradisum, Delsin, L.I.E.S. and his own Editions Gravats label has been challenging, wilfully experimental and largely excellent.

Lena Willikens – Phantom Delia

by on at 09:57am

Lena Willikens may only just becoming recognised this side of the English Channel, but in her native Germany she’s considered to be something of a rising star. She’s been plying her trade as a DJ for some time, most famously as Friday night resident at Düsseldorf’s acclaimed Salon Des Amateurs. At this venue, Willikens showcases a dark, woozy and occasionally paranoid style that takes in off-kilter techno, skewed new wave, pulsating EBM, industrial disco, experimental electronics and jacking, otherworldly house. Her long running Sentimental Flashback show for Cómeme Radio is more conceptually driven, but just as diverse, and it’s clear the Cologne label considers her to be a star in the making.

Various Artists – Nonnative 07

by on at 10:23am

Compared to recent years, 2014 was a relatively quiet one for Spanish label Semantica. Its owner, the affable Svreca, continued to represent its sound through his DJ dates around the world, while Nonnative, one of its sub-labels, promotes upcoming techno artists. It’s Nonnative that rounds out the year with its seventh release. Like its parent label, there is no one narrative, even though all of the artists that contribute to this installment keep their focus on the dance floor. As number seven shows, it is a very broad church.

Head Front Panel – HFP #009

by on at 09:33am

As the Head Front Panel series winds its way towards a conclusion, there is of course plenty of speculation about who could be involved in the series (editors note: the project has been revealed as the work of John Heckle subsequent to the submission of this review). It’s been a diverse proposition, leaning towards tough overdriven techno with firebrand energy, a truckload of ideas and a fearless desire to get confrontational. It’s the kind of anonymous project that matches up to the hype such ventures attract. Against their better judgement many a record-buying beat freak will find themselves swept away in the romanticism of mystery white labels. After all, it’s not a new phenomenon, and in the case of Tabernacle’s offshoot sublabel, the music is good enough to set the mind racing regardless of its presentation.

Hodge – You Better Lie Down

by on at 11:23am

For us consumers of music, it’s always nice to witness the results of an artist revelling in a creative purple patch such as the one young Bristolian producer Jacob Martin is currently enjoying as Hodge. If you were to seek out that one sonic element that binds together everything Hodge has committed his name to in 2014, it’s an underlying sense of humidity. Records for Dnuos Ytivil, Tempa, and Hotline revel in a muggy feeling, almost as if Hodge has bottled the sweat dripping from a dingy basement club in Stokes Croft, broken down the molecular structure and fed it into his collection of hardware.

Bodem – Het Sonisch Besluit

by on at 11:56am

This 12” by the hitherto unknown Bodem marks the second release on Delta Funktionen’s Radio Matrix imprint. With little else to go on, you can rest assured that the electro-techno style of the Dutch label boss has come to bear on the tracks and so if you were already a fan of that approach, there’s plenty to enjoy here. Quite simply, “Malfunktion” is a monstrous track with all those face-contorting qualities that make for true excitement in the rave, tempered just right so as to not become comical in its filthiness. There is of course a fine line to be trodden when dealing in sonic dirt; of course the most hyped-up EDM bass-weight juggernaut can be loaded with all kinds of studio fireworks to make the kids lose their shit, but to remain classy whilst getting nasty is not so simple.

Manuel Gonzales – Full Frontal

by on at 09:51am

Listening to this latest release on Berceuse Heroique from Manuel Gonzales brings to mind the unfortunate passing of LFO producer Mark Bell earlier this year. Not in the sense that the producer or the label want to cash in on the death of Bell, but rather that it serves as a reminder of the period in the early to mid-90s, when Bell’s records, along with the music of Claude Young and Stacey Pullen, were mapping out new possibilities for the form. In particular, Bell’s Lofthouse double pack release as Clark on Planet E was a defining moment. It effortlessly combined Bell’s bleep background with the noisenik aesthetic of Landstrumm and the robotic angularity of a Detroit new waver (at the time) like Young.

Alland Byallo – Dead Ringer

by on at 09:50am

Alland Byallo has been releasing records for a decade and since 2010 or thereabouts he’s remained a low-lying omnipresence in electronic music. The American’s foothold in a style of minimalistic house music suited to labels like Poker Flat and Morris Audio means Byallo’s recognised profile continually skirts a periphery between the underground and what music publications consider news or review-worthy. To these ears, however, this Dead Ringer 12” for his Berlin-based label Bad Animal is his best.

Rivet – S.E.L.F.#2

by on at 09:40am

Keeping it Swedish as ever, Rivet makes just his second appearance of the year on this single for the Swedish Electronic Liberation Front imprint, following on from a strong first release for the label that featured fellow Scandinavian dirt-mongers Fishermen. With every release Rivet seems to reveal yet more sides to his multifarious sound while maintaining a dense and hard-hitting aesthetic. Increasingly (as was hinted at on his Bear Bile 12” for Kontra-Musik) he seems to be heading into a corner of techno more in line with early electronica than po-faced floor-focus, and it makes him all the more thrilling to listen to.

Hashman Deejay – Sandopolis

by on at 11:55am

Until very recently, all the public had to go on about the existence of a certain Hashman Deejay was some whispered message board conjecture and the “Tangerine” EP on Future Times. On the label of that record, two pencil-sketched piercing eyes stare out at you, poking out from the brush of the wilderness. “Tangerine” imparted soothing rainforest sounds and subtly progressing drum patterns aplenty; but whenever this writer threw it on his turntable, those eyes gave a feeling of uncertainty; one was being watched. While some savvy internet use will connect the dots between Hashman Deejay, Tanner Matt, Aquarian Foundation and Vancouver’s sure-to-be-topping-some-’best-of-2014′-lists Mood Hut collective, this writer thinks part of the enjoyment of a Hashman release is allowing yourself to be swept away in the intrigue, the uncertainty and unpredictability of what’s inside.

Tambien & Tiago – EP 01

by on at 11:23am

It’s not clear who came up with the idea of Tambien and Tiago joining forces in the studio, but as a concept it makes a lot of sense. Musically, they have a lot in common, from a shared love of sweaty tropical rhythms, percussion-heavy re-edits and downbeat, ultra-deep techno, to the wonky, do-it-yourself ethos of their respective labels. Apparently, the trio behind Tambien – producer Bartellow and Public Possession shop/label owners Marvin and Valentino – have long been friends with Tiago Miranda – a rapport that has seen the quartet share a DJ booth on numerous occasions.

Grey Branches – Lower Bounds

by on at 09:35am

Belgian artist Yves De Mey is a hyperactive talent and Grey Branches is his latest project. While much of his output is experimental, he isn’t completely divorced from dance floor techno – check some of his Sendai work with Peter Van Hoesen – and this new venture seeks to unite those often incompatible worlds.

Panoptique – Panoptique

by on at 09:25am

The Antinote train keeps on rolling as a one-stop shop for some of the most essential unearthed gems from the fertile underground of French techno and electro curiosities, and once again an unfamiliar name is presented to us in the shape of Panoptique. With but a couple of obscure compilation releases behind him, Bordeaux-based Panoptique makes a debut release here that more than steps up to the other shamanistic machine mantras that the label has dealt in thus far.

Floating Points – Nuits Sonores

by on at 09:20am

Any new Floating Points release is cause for celebration! Fresh material from Sam Shepherd may have been relatively thin on the ground in recent years, but what he has put out has been predictably strong. His sole 2013 release, Wires, was a gently unfurling modern jazz masterpiece – with the obligatory deep house influences, of course – while June’s King Bromeliad 12” – a typically rolling, Rhodes-laden deep house-jazz jam, was arguably his strongest dancefloor moment since the days of People’s Potential. While he may not have totally abandoned his jazz ambitions, Shepherd does seem to be paying closer attention to the demands of club-friendly records.

T.B. Arthur – 3

by on at 09:09am


There’s little information to be had on T.B. Arthur beyond the insinuation it’s the work of a forgotten US producer from the ‘90s whose plans fell foul to financial issues, and a Chicago area phone number printed on each of the three records. Dial it up and you’ll be met with an automated message informing inquisitive minds: “You have dialled a number that is no longer in use, but continues to receive many calls. Please check the number you want and dial again. You have not been charged for this call. Thank you”.
