Review: Following his prime edit material for Cole Medina's American Standard label, Scottish producer Lord Of The Isles has seen original productions land on the likes of Cocktail d'Amore, Ene, and his own Little Strong as well as gracing the Phonica Special Edition Series. Now he arrives on Firecracker's Shevchenko edition for the label's seventh release, with three tracks representing the many shades and hues of his production palette. "Elgol" sees the producer venture into similarly impressionistic house territory as Legowelt, with nebulous organ chords joined by loosely jacking drums and gentle acid textures. On the flip, "Galicia" delivers a deep jam with all the same free-flowing analogue tendrils and luscious bass, while "Timber Lorries Emerging" combines a bassline with a John Carpenter-inspired tension with neo-Balearic soul, a combination that works a lot better in practice than you'd expect. As with all Shevchecnko releases clear vinyl and exceptional music is the order of the day - highly recommended.

Review: Darmstadt's Benedikt Frey has been one of the most exciting talents in electronic music in the last few years. With releases on local institution Live At Robert Johnson and Barcelona's Hivern Discs in addition to his experimental project INIT (with Nadia D'Alo) he returns once again to Lovefingers' Los Angeles based imprint. This is the second time after last year's impressive The Lobbyist EP. Be prepared for more cosmic, post-Kraut psychedelia of the greyscale kind from Frey on his first ever full length release. Highlights include the brooding industrial punk-funk of "Controversial", the slow burning hypnotic techno epic "H For Hysteria" or the Can styled progressive rock of "Keygrind" which really shows off the diversity. Add to that the the woozy acid tribalism of "Push" or "Patcher" which are perfect for setting the mood early at Offenbach's favourite clubs.

Review: Rene Pawlowitz is without a doubt one of techno's most defining producers. The Berlin based producer known for powerful and emotive warehouse anthems under such guises as Head High, EQD, WAX and Seelow returns for his third full length album as Shed; the first in five years since 2012's terrific Killer LP. All the hallmarks of his distinct sound are on display once again; on the brooding "Black Heart" or the bittersweet "Taken Effect" there's rusty, dusted down and broken up drums big enough to fill a stadium and backed by those mesmerising and hypnotic pads. It's beautiful in all its sinister rave glory. By contrast, interludes such as "Extreme SAT" introduce yet more gorgeous pads and shimmering arpeggios on this simple yet effective exercise in ambient: one of several beatless journeys on the album. "Call 32075!" romanticizes the heyday of early '90s techno, effectively bridging the gap between elements of Detroit hi-tech soul and British IDM; Peacefrog style. Immaculately programmed rhythms, powerful bass pulsations and emotive/life affirming elements all combine wonderfully and in a way that only Pawlowitz can.

Review: Danish producer Milan Zaks has largely impressed since releasing his first cassette of dusty, rave-influenced downtempo grooves last year. Modern Species, his first outing for Firecracker Recordings, is easily his most expansive and impressive release to date. Stretched out across two slabs of wax you'll find dreamy, jungle-influenced deepness ("World A", "For Real For You"), cosmic dub ("Stellar Clusters", "Ascension"), spacey ambient techno ('Entry Mode"), Motor City influenced positivity ("Parallax") and Boards of Canada style loveliness ("Reluctant Memory"). Predictably, it's all superbly produced, with the material proudly sitting in the no man's land between club-ready rollers and horizontal home listening fare.

Review: Norway's Geir Jenssen has been a pivotal figure of the ambient techno sound since the early 2000s and, unsurprisingly, his Biosphere moniker has been consistently chosen by what is possibly the best ambient label of our time, Jon Wozencroft's singular Touch stable. Cirque is an album from the year 2000 itself, but it could just as easily be from the year 2150; the rich textures and deep sonic landscapes are timeless to say the least. Moreover, this is an escapist piece of work, a whole world in itself which precipitates the listener into vast and endless journey through sound. This reissue is not to be missed, and should be regarded as a blueprint for what we consider to ambient music in the present day. Terrific stuff.

Review: After a pair of lush, vibrant bundles of harmonies for the International Feel label, Private Agenda bursts into full colour with this new pack of Balearic glory for the endlessly pleasing Needwant imprint. "Sienna" opens the scene beautifully with a gloriously pale-faced drum machine jam, which evaporates neatly into the starry soundscapes of "Ochre". "Umber" provides calm and tranquility thanks to blissful ambient drones sounding like whale calls, while "Cadium" manages to slot in a fine flurry of piano keys for the downtime, and Seahawks' envisioning of "Sienna" takes us right to the heart of Southern Spain's infamous island flavours. Gorgeous.

Review: Danish DJ and producer Rune Reilly Kolsch started out around 2003 and first gained success with his track "Calabria". He went on to efforts in the groups Artificial Funk and Enur together (with his brother Johannes Torpe) and then creating some big tunes in the mid noughties minimal boom, under aliases like Ink & Needle and Tattoo. The first material as Kolsch surfaced around 2010 and he's been a staple of the Cologne based Kompakt family ever since. With 1989, he presents the final chapter in a trilogy that started with an exploration of early childhood memories and influences (on 1977) and continued on 1983: which soundtracked his childhood travels throughout Europe. With 1989, we have arrived at his early teens. Kolsch explains it was "a difficult time in my life, where I mostly just remember the greyness of it all." It isn't all a brooding affair though, for the most part. From the sombre symphonic acid of "Serij", the pop inflected tech-house of "In Bottles" (featuring Aurora) to the epically euphoric style of dancefloor drama you'd usually attribute to the man like on "Grau" or the anthemic lead single "Liath". It's quite a story he presents here.

Review: Cologne's Kompakt label requires no introductions, so we'll stick to our words and leave it at that. They do, however, like to release a diverse and immersive variety of electronic music, and this latest comp, Pop Ambient 2018, taps into the sort of mood that's occurring throughout our society. Kompakt have always been good at reflecting what is happening to people, music and situations, with this new compilation executing that better than ever before. Each artist and each tune on here manages to offer experimentation and interpretation while still grasping at something that will appeal to the contemporary listener. No sound is out of shape, nothing is gratuitous. What's more, among the many excellent waves of beat-driven ambient flexing, you even get an appearance from the legendary Orb. This is one that will be remembered.

Review: Following the release of his acclaimed debut album, In Waves, on ESP Institute, Lord of the Isles man Neil McDonald returns home to Firecracker Recordings. With six tracks to choose from, Parabolas of Neon is almost a mini-album. It boasts a quartet of sublime, mind-soothing ambient cuts, topped and tailed by two more rhythmic moments. Opener "Sunrise 89", a shameless dose of nostalgia built around heavy, bleep techno style sub bass and electronic motifs, offers a perfect balance between dancefloor heaviness and dreamy, saucer-eyed intent. Then there's the small matter of the title track, which is the kind of ultra-deep, ultra-dreamy chugger that you just want to hug at six in the morning.

Review: French electronic music maverick Erwan Castex aka Rone drops an LP for his native InFine imprint! This, as one would expect from Castex by now, is an excursion into the deepest depth of the synthesizer. There are both moments of total abstraction, such as on "(OO)" and "Ouija", and of sheer delicacy on the wonderful "Acid Reflux" or "Memory". The most impressive aspect of the album is Rone's technical ability, a freedom to express even the wildest of ideas into a concrete groove and sonic structure. Recommended.

Review: The sixth release of Amsterdam record label Safe Trip brings together a few dozen ambient tracks from Japanese twin brothers Satoshi & Makoto from Kawasaki. The whole album's beats, melodies and musical phrases come from the Casio Cz-5000: which gives the record its name. Label chief Young Marco discovered their music via YouTube videos, which the two musicians had recorded in order to illustrate the possibilities of the aforementioned instrument and most of the material was said to be influenced by acts like The Orb and Yellow Magic Orchestra. According to the label, it is largely of an ambient nature, positive mood and possibly alien origin.

Review: Andreas Gerth and Florian Zimmer return under their Driftmachine moniker with a new album for Umor Rex, the under-rated Mexico City imprint that likes to travel every corner of the globe in search of new and interesting electronic talent. More specifically, the majority of their artists, including Driftmachine, have a penchant for the genreless, and this is heard loudly on Colliding Contours. Tagging this album as drone would be doing it no justice, the sonic patterns within tunes like "Sans Soleil", or "Gaukelwerk" are too rich in texture and motion, with the latter being particularly dubby. Others like "Observant Sirens" stray even further away form any notion of ambient, and deliver a hot and murky pool of analogue percussion backed by a spectral collection of sounds and noise. TIP!

Review: Sweden is not too often cited alongside the best of the downtempo scene, but it just makes so much sense for the country's sleek looks and cool approach to be associated to slow-burning bursts of outsider electronica. As such, Goteborg's Carbon Based Lifeforms have been among the few Swedes to wave the flag for the genre, and this new album - Derelicts - for Blood Music feels like another masterful stroke of genius from the duo. We've always been big fans of the label, so this LP comes as both a pleasure and a surprise in the fact that we weren't necessarily expecting them to appear on its wondrous catalogue. However, it's clear from the start that this is a fitting relationship; Derelict follows like a strange and compelling story, taking us into a world of distant chants and slow beats which form a distinctive narrative across its 12 tracks, and it comes highly recommended for anyone wishing to go on a little journey. Blissful, indeed.

Rich, perplexing and full of drama, Nathan's signature abrasion is felt with even more emphasis and timeless scope as the eminent Polish composer works her magic. Also included is a breath-taking ambient twist from Konx-Om-Pax and live versions from Nathan himself. Providential.

Review: Much like the Fabric mix series, Late Night Tales has been a staple of the British compilation dynasty, and the label has somehow managed to consistently call upon some of the world's biggest and most interesting talents to demonstrate their skills behind the DJ decks, and to give us a tiny view into their tastes and influences. Iceland's Olafur Arnalds, a lo-fi artist who has steadily released nothing but quality on the Erased Tapes label, is asked to do the honours for the catalogu's 44th instelment, and we are seriously digging what this dude is into. Electronica is a bit of a cop-out term to describe this gear, but there is just so much diversity in here that it's simply impossible to categorise it under one roof. Maybe sci-fi electro soul would be a good term, as it manages to capture the mood and feel of these beautiful songs by the likes of Koreless, Jamie XX via Four Tet, Samaris, Arnois, and Arnalds' own music. Spot on once again, Late Night Tales!

Review: UK techno outsider BNJMN has been turning heads in recent years with some killer releases on Jericho One, Delsin and Rush Hour; not to mention his own Brack imprint. He is back with more bass infused lo-fi techno shenanigans on a new EP for true techno merchants: the legendary Tresor. Commencing with the grainy and saturated dark ambient odyssey "Overskies", he's then into the gritty and aquatic 4/4 electro-funk darkness of "Hadal Zone". Finally "Syzygy" serves up his signature clang and clutter on this grinding and lo-fi analogue techno jack full of squealing synth textures plus dusty/frayed drum computer beats.

Review: Mathias Schober runs the fine Lossless label - home to artists like King Britt and the fast-rising Neil Flynn- but has found the time to debut on Optimo Trax. Using just a simple set-up of drums and one synth, Schober creates some distinctive tracks. "In A Certain Way" is a tripped out techno affair, its colourful synth line unravelling against a rolling groove that has similarities to Mathew Jonson. On "But What Rules Are Made For", Schober opts for a different tact and delivers a slow-burning affair drenched in grimy electronic textures. "Is To Break Them" offers his perspective on dub techno, as a cavernous groove plays home to spiralling trance riffs, before an ambient version of the same track brings the release to a close.

Review: Frankfurt favourite Roman Flugel returns to Hamburg institution Dial, presenting his third album to date for the label. According to a press release, the All The Right Noises LP explores further the themes of hotel rooms while on tour: "a place where no beats are banging and euphoric party energy is absent. A place where only heartbeats call the tune." Take for instance woozy and sombre drifters such as "The Mighty Suns" or "Nameless Lake" (which are full of dusty and vintage machine flair) or tough and disjointed house jams like "Warm & Dewy". Or our favorite "Dead Idols" which borders on near techno moments. Rest assured that there are more uplifting and bouncy tracks on offer, such as the deep disco flavour of "Dust" or the emotive bittersweet title track, where its soaring drones will wash over you.

Review: It would be fair to say that Firecracker offshoot Unthank is a little underrated. The 10" series, which variously focuses on experimental deep house and curious downtempo explorations, has previously showcased superb work from Vakula, Inkswel, Booshank and Lord of the Isles, amongst others. Here, Vancouver's LNRDCRY gets in on the act, opening with a wondrous chunk of horizontal ambience - think dreamy, new age chords, throbbing bass and far-out textures - before delivering a suitably saucer-eyed slice of beatless positivity. The dancefloor's not completely ignored, of course, and the EP's final missive is an intense romp through analogue acid blessed, of course, with LNRDCRY's usual impeccably atmospheric chords.

Review: Jacaszek's last outing on Matthew Dear's fine Ghostly International imprint came all the way back in 2011 but, then again, the artist doesn't exactly put out a vast amount of music. It's most certainly quality over quantity for this imperceptible producer, and we respect him for it. In fact, this is surely what drove Jon Wozencraft to land him on the sublime Touch label, and we take that as a sign that this guy is worth shouting about. KWIATY is a work of immense beauty, dipping and diving its way through dark and mysterious corners of the ambient domain; places that many other artists of this calibre rarely visit. For an album that is somewhat ominous by nature, there are plenty of uplifting moments throughout, and this is undoubtedly brought to the foray by the soulful voices riding high on the crest of solitary, hollow drones in the underbelly of the sonic sketches. It's an ambient album for people who are not into the genre. It's for those wishing to float and meditate to some beautiful melodic waves.

Review: Yamaneko's debut album - 2014's Pixel Wave Embrace became a cult classic - quietly but notably influential on the artists around him and further afield. For his third full length effort on hometown imprint Local Action, the London based producer Joe Moynihan (who has released under the names Talbot Fade and Yaroze Dream Suite with Miles Mitchell) has been combining electronic music with ambient by way of grime, new age cassette music, video game soundtracks and techno. This album follows up last year's colder, less inviting Project Nautilus (Keygen Loops) but is a complete change of perspective. Story has it that earlier in 2017, he was commissioned to create music for a spa in Europe. These commissions eventually developed into a mass of material which formed the basis of this entire album. Here he has created his most blissful, beatless record to date.

Review: You wouldn't believe it, but A Strangely Isolated Place has been in operation since 2008 with their fresh and provocative mix series that spans everything from techno to ambient and noise. As with all their other artists, Merrin Karras is a fascinating new talent from the undergrowth and this new LP contains all the right elements to get our taste buds going good and proper. However, Apex isn't your typical ambient album. Its spectral tones and hollow drones still contain enough movement and energy to be played out as single tracks, not as mere abstract sketches to bind an album together. The opener "Catharsis" is a perfect example of Karras' freeform kinetics, and the lead song "Apex" is perhaps the best example the artist's singular take on barren, experimental music for the mind. Excellent.

Review: Like many of his contemporaries, US producer Huerco S usually deals in wavy, trembling house amalgams, but also often deals in all things ambient and beatless. This new LP on Anthony Naples' Proibito, however, is a marked step in a different direction from the artist, and it shows us that he's more talented at the genre than merely a B2 stuck on at the end of a techno deviation. For Those Of You Who Have Never (And Also Those Who Have) is a stunning ambient album; each track across its duration is filled with life and purpose, a clear musical and expressive direction that many so-called ambient artists lack. It's likely to be remembered for a long time, and allow this artist to be seen as having a truly experimental mindset.

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: Berlin based American DJ James Whipple aka MESH is well known as a member of the city's notorious JANUS crew alongside Lotic and Kablam in addition to his well received releases for the likes of Dyssembler and PAN: which he's fast become a staple of. His contorted take on club music has been heard on 2015's impressive Scythians LP, in addition to his most recent Damaged Merc EP with its derivatives of hardstyle, Jersey club and grime. This follow up takes you further down the spiral, awash in bass heavy futurism ("2 Loop Trip"/"Coercer"), complex webs of field recordings ("Signal Ride Drum"/"Blurred Cicada II") and deep rendered sampling like on "Nemorum Incola" or "Blurred Cicada". Recorded in Berlin and Umbria, Hesaitix LP sees Whipple 'firmly engaged in a kind of sonic worldbuilding, a place where the unconscious and the alien intersect.' A compelling listen.

Review: Shlomo makes a return to Darko Esser's label after the 2015 release Avadon. Despite being known as a techno producer the release starts with the title track beautifully fragile ambience and this mood continues with the tranced out beatless "MUM". The Taaipon boss edges closer to the dance floor with "The Ritual" but this track also has a mysterious edge and its swinging rhythm and broken beats emerge from behind eerie found sounds. "Obsession" sees Shlomo deliver an expertly weighted acid heavy dance floor techno track but its lithe rhythm means that it seduces by stealth rather than by force. All told it's a masterfully subtle release.

Review: Burnt Friedman and Oke Goettlich's Nonplace is back with some tribal percussion workouts courtesy of Cologne based Drums Off Chaos that's comprised of Friedman's touring bassist Maf Retter, Manos Tsangaris, Olek Gelba and Reiner Linke. Jaki Liebezeit of the legendary Can was a member also, until his death in early 2017. The group collaborated with local musician Jes Uwe Beyer for an album on Barnt's Magazine imprint in 2011. There's been a strong scene for polyrhythmic music in the city of Cologne and fans of Stefan Schwander, The Durian Brothers or Harmonious Thelonious will certainly find the entrancing rhythms on offer here quite interesting.

Review: Tim Hecker's music has a way of consistently confounding expectations thanks to his ever shifting nature, and Virgins is no exception. While 2011's Ravedeath 1972 felt weighed down by its sandblasted sound that brought to mind a ravaged landscape, and last year's Instrumental Tourist was filled with subtle Eastern influences, Virgins comes with a sound that feels somehow elegiac; opener "Prism" places cacophonous organs stretched to infinity, while "Radiance" is as close as Hecker will get to the sound of an angelic chorus. Other moments prove more introspective, such as "Live Room Out", and the sullen piano keys of "Black Refraction". It's an album with the same instantly timeless quality of Fennesz's Venice, and comes highly recommended.
