Locks & DDM – Locks & DDM

You can file this delightful little curio from Locks & DDM alongside the Transformation 12” from a few years ago under ‘L.I.E.S. releases with somewhat fanciful backstories that are hard to believe.’ Whereas that one-sided Transformation 12”, Sketch 1, apparently originated in late-‘90s Oldenburg, Germany, but was more likely the work of Nation boss Traxx and associates, the information offered on Locks & DDM is even more vague.

Wata Igarashi – Haziest Just Before the Dawn

Varied as his musical path is, there is a certain consistent thread that runs through all of Wata Igarashi’s projects. Whether it is punk bands he formed in Madrid when he was a teenager, an improvisational jazz group where he soaked up music theory or solo productions that have made his name, the Japanese producer has always sought out trippier elements of music. The last few years have seen him refine his deeply hallucinatory style to make for a lean yet effective sound through a handful of masterfully crafted techno cuts for labels such as Midgar in Berlin and Time To Express by Peter Van Hoesen, who’s given Igarashi’s skill set the seal of approval.

Lost Trax – Flatliner

For an act that took four years to follow up its debut, the past few months have represented a veritable purple patch of creativity for Lost Trax. The collective, who want to remain in the shadows and let their music talking – unlike those who wear masks, hand stamp their records and make a media-friendly nod towards being anonymous – have just issued their second record in six months. Flatliner arrives on Shipwrec, a Dutch label that has done more than most to further underground electro, but which also provides a platform for left of centre techno from artists like Drvg Cvltvre.

Machine Woman – Genau House

Russian-born, Berlin-located Anastasia Vtorova has been publicly sharing music with us for three years now, uploading experimentations to her SoundCloud page in between releases for labels like Tesla Tapes and Peder Mannerfelt Produktion. Her music as Machine Woman so far has been perfect for people who want to take the dancefloor into a weirder, deeper headspace while still pumping out sub-bass powerful enough to make your stomach lurch.

Healing Force Project – Transhumanism

Verona imprint Le Disque, named after the local record store of the same name, only has a modest output on its main label. It has recently launched new sub label Ambiwa, whose mission statement simply declares that it is into ‘abstract house music’. They’ve previously presented us works recently by Downbeat Records mainman Jose Rico as well as a collaboration by MCDOO and Sirius Type aka Deepblak main man Eric Porter. For their third edition they’ve handed the reins to Antonio Marini aka Healing Force Project whose impressive and defiantly original music of late see him as the perfect candidate to cater to this fledgling label’s MO.

Umwelt – Shipwrec Remix Series 1

On his Facebook page, Umwelt describes the music he makes as ‘Ravelectrodarkacidrave’. It’s not a bad description. Since the late ‘90s, the French producer has been putting out uncompromising, 303-laced electro tracks that are best heard on a big rig in the open air. (Previously, he had posted a video on Facebook, now removed, of an outdoor rave he played at during the ‘90s which perfectly captures this aesthetic).

L/F/D/M – Crocodiles in the Ceiling

It’s a surprise that L/F/D/M is releasing on Ecstatic, a label with links to Kompakt through founders and former Walls duo Sam Willis and Alessio Natalizia. Indeed it would be hard to think of an aesthetic that is more at odds with the Cologne-based operation than that which L/F/D/M aka Richard Smith propagates. The London-based producer released an album last year on the label and now he’s back with arguably his best release to date.

Stéphane Laporte – Fourrure Sounds Vol. 2

Antinote has many facets to its aims as a label, but there are definitely times when it seems Zaltan and co. are keen to champion a very French kind of electronic music. Nationality-based musical definitions can be cringeworthy at best, calling to mind the right wing jack-boot of British Oi! punk or German oom-pah band pastiche, but you can’t deny that electronic music from France has often had a personality that could not come from anywhere else. In Antinote’s case, sometimes the artists don’t even have to be French to fit this bill. Just listen to Latvia’s finest, Domenique Dumont, with their bright and breezy Gallic pop. Syracuse too ooze Parisian lounge lizard sophistication, and Geena’s chunky hardware house movements sports a special kind of flair.

Alex Cortex – Parallax Mind

Alex Cortex is an acquired taste. He doesn’t make easy, straightforward music and has a tendency to move in an unexpected way, jumping between styles as diverse as disco-house and grating, industrial techno – check the difference between “Discola” and “Live at Monox” if you’re in any doubt. Cortex has enjoyed a long relationship with Viennese label Pomelo – which released his last album, 2011’s Kihon – and now he makes his debut on another Austrian imprint, the long-running Trust.

Bruce – The Trouble With Wilderness

Larry McCarthy is irrepressible. In an interview with The Quietus, the producer known as Bruce revealed he had an epiphany during his last year of university: “I didn’t think about anything else other than getting releases on the labels I’d dreamed of being on.” Cue a powerful pair of records for Hessle Audio and Livity Sound’s Dnuos Ytivil sublabel. Now, right after his second Hessle release, he reveals a dubby mix of techno, dubstep and ambient sounds for Idle Hands. This is a trio of distinctly formed tracks, and each has an interesting novelty that’s hard to describe, a quality in-keeping with his previous material. One of the first things you notice is that the rough distortion you associate with Bruce productions has temporarily disappeared.

Project Pablo – Priorites

Project Pablo’s debut album, I Want To Believe, won a lot of hearts. Though composed of familiar elements, his chunky blend of warm house grooves and rich instrumentation was curiously singular. It still stands as one of 1080p’s best releases to date. Since then he’s put out some new material on Church, featuring on a V/A 12” and a collaboration with Wolfey, but neither quite recaptured the impossible balance of chill and funk of his debut. Now Pablo, who walks the streets as Patrick Holland, has arrived on Lone’s Magicwire label with Priorities, and he’s at the top of his game once more.

EDMX – GYRORIDE003

One of the more positive developments of recent years has been the manner in which new labels have championed the work of Ed Upton. Known primarily for his DMX Krew project, under which he has just put out a fine new album on Hypercolor, the UK producer has also released as EDMX for Shipwrec and Power Vacuum. It’s under this alternate alias that Tabernacle has recruited him to release on its Ride the Gyroscope sub-label.

Leo Anibaldi – 94-96

UK label Future Primitive launches with a serving of Roman techno history, reimagined for modern times. Anibaldi, along with Lory D, was one of the driving forces behind electronic music in the Italian capital during the early ’90s. He was mainly associated with the ACV label, the  formed pop turned Italian techno label that also attracted producers like Robert Armani and Dave Clarke. While Anibaldi eventually ended his relationship with ACV and moved over to Rephlex  – which released “Evocation Part 2”, also on this release –  Future Primitive has caught a snapshot of the Roman scene in the mid-90s by digging up “Aeon Fusion 1”.

Neuroshima – Rave Archive

IMG_8494

Despite not yet hitting double figures in releases, All Caps has built a reputation as a taste-making label, showing a willingness to take risks in its output. The Glaswegian imprint handed debut solo outings to artists such as Alex Coulton and DJ Guy, who was excavated from the depths of SoundCloud obscurity by co-founder Bake. And at a time when the name Mood Hut might have been mistaken for a back-alley legal high vendor in the UK, All Caps brought Bluntman Deejay across the Atlantic to become the first of that talented crop of Canadian Riviera producers to release on a label based in Britain rather than British Columbia.

Muslimgauze/Unterspreche – Optimo Trax 18

Following re-issues of more seminal work by Australian legends Severed Heads and a brilliant double header by up and comers Morgan Hammer and Golden Filter (on Optimo Trax 15 and 17 respectively), J.D. Twitch curates a curious meeting of old school versus new school with legendary Mancunian producer Muslimgauze and emergent Italian outfit Unterspreche joining forces on the label’s newest release.

Microworld – Orange Sun

Microworld isn’t the kind of artist who pops up on your social media timeline or is constantly generating headlines. The Australian producer, real name Philip McGarva, has put out just five records, including this one, over the past 17 years and is still best known for his debut release, Signals, on Derrick May’s Transmat back in 1999. Despite the passage of almost two decades, McGarva, like many of his peers, continues to craft the same kind of deep, widescreen techno that he originally gained recognition with.

Three Of You – Drum Electronic Sound

Italian act Three of You had a short life span, releasing just two singles, New Life and Grace, during the mid to late ‘80s. Both original pressings sell for hundreds of euro each, so it was fortuitous that Bordello A Parigi reissued both tracks together on the same record back in 2013. Tucked away on the B-side of that release was “Drum Electronic Sound”. Unlike both of their signature tracks, it’s an instrumental track, leaning more towards the emerging sound of electro rather than the fey mixture of new wave and Italo that they were known for.

Various Artists – Lifetime Subscription

For some labels, maintaining a steady release schedule seems more important than the quality of the music they deliver. This is not an accusation that could be leveled at Leipzig’s Mikrodisko Recordings, whose releases are sporadic, to say the least. Since launching a decade ago, Mikrodisko – run by a group of friends and music-makers, with close ties to the city’s Homo-Elektrik collective – has put out just nine 12” singles, supplemented by low-key cassettes. In fact, their most recent vinyl outing, Mix Mup’s Drive By, dropped way back in 2012.

Gavin Russom – Psychic Decolonization

Electronic music too often shies away from taking a stand or making a statement. It seems like Gavin Russom is an exception. On his 2014 release, Telemetry / The Beneficent, The Merciful, he took inspiration, albeit subconsciously, from the Islamic devotional music he came into contact with during his childhood. On his latest release, a debut for Zurich label Lux Rec, he dedicates the four tracks to two people.

O’Flynn – Oberyn

The Blip Discs story is a brief one so far, the label having only surfaced last year with a single from O’Flynn that promptly got snapped up by such luminaries as Four Tet and Pearson Sound. Despite such high profile support, we haven’t yet been subjected to the aggressive surge of headline festival slots and week-on-week podcasts that normally follow such ‘buzz’ debut releases. That may in part be down to the way O’Flynn and his cohort Tom Blip operate, and while it could all change, at present it seems as though they’re not in a rush to plaster their names and faces across every platform going. Rather this third installment in the label’s burgeoning repertoire appears in an unfussy fashion that makes the music all the more appealing.
