Review: James Ginzburg and Paul Purgas are getting crustier and more experimental with every passing year. Recur, their fourth full-length excursion, is decidedly fuzzy and discordant. Seemingly intent on pushing experimental electronics to its limits, the formerly Bristol-based duo serve up a challenging but rewarding set based almost entirely around half-rhythms, white noises, drones, feedback and hissing atmospherics. It's spooky, intense stuff, all told, occasionally enlivened by sparse, pared-down concoctions that sound like a smacked out take on Autechre. But for all the bleak, out-there sounds, Recur is strangely involving, due in no small part to its immersive nature.

Review: Electronic music is meant to provide a release from the real world, but Medium, the latest missive by UK producer Emptyset, will bring anyone who hears it crashing back to the earth. Emptyset's approach makes nods to narratives from the past, taking influence from the tortured industrial noise of Throbbing Gristle, the eerie ambience of Regis and minimal techno at its most reductionist. On "Interstice", this latter trait manifests itself as dead paced beats and frost percussion disappear into nothingness only to re-appear a few seconds later. On "Other", Emptyset does more to reintroduce the spirit of industrial to contemporary electronic music than a shelf full of situationist techno releases; murderous sub-bass stabs provide the focus, but on the sidelines eerie sound scapes and textures are unfolding, accompanied by skittish percussion. "Mirror" meanwhile sees waves of white noise and static interference and a rave siren build over doubled-up death pace beats. These are the closest references to structured electronic music. "Divide" delivers a tapestry of detached sounds while on "Medium" itself, Emptyset wallows in menacing bass licks with background noise seething beneath the surface. This is music that matches the unparalleled dark age we are living through, and just this once, the Medium really is the message.

from $1.88

Review: Having carved out a strong sonic identity for themselves in the new wave of current noise-driven artists, Emptyset make a bold step in the right direction with an EP for Raster Noton, arguably the pinnacle destination for the grit-flecked, ear canal-scraping approach to anti bass music. "Armature" starts things off in relatively manageable territory with a stalking composition driven by a discernible kick, but "Core" is instantly a more visceral excursion into white noise blasts at messy rhythmic intervals. "Collapse" works towards a crescendo that almost reaches for melody, while "Wire" gleefully robs techno of its danceable function and sears its features to within an inch of its 4/4 life.

from $1.88
Review: Material contains not one but three lengthy segments of live performances from Paul Purgas and James Ginzburg's Emptyset project, recorded throughout last year's prodigious gigs around the globe. Judging from the various titles, the recordings seem to be based around the industrial aspects of the duo's far-reaching influences, starting from "Trawsfynydd Nuclear Power Station-Snowdonia, Wales 17.12.12" where the combination between sparse kicks and brooding injections of noise make for a real spectacle. "Ambika P3-London, England 12.12.12" is similar in texture but more offensive by nature, striking out its menacing whirls of radioactive noise, quickly and effectively; whilst, "Chislehurst Mine-Kent, England 02.11.12" goes back to a considerably more tame approach, taking gasps of air between the scalding infusions of noise emanating from the shadows of the duo's machines; this is cerebral, visceral stuff, and comes highly recommended.

Demiurge: Of Blackest Grain To Missive Ruin (Paul Jebanasam Variation) - (5:20) Biggest-selling track on this release

Function: Vulgar Display of Power (Roly Porter Variation) - (4:31)
from $1.88
Played by: Perc
Review: With an approach that takes inspiration from the industrial ambience of Throbbing Gristle and Regis into a particularly dense sound, Emptyset find material from their recent Demiurge album reworked by kindred spirits and Subtext label associates Paul Jabanasam and Roly Porter. Jabanasam's take on "Demiurge" is filled with juddering bass tones which grow out of a dread filled soundscape like arcane monoliths, while Roly Porter's variation on "Function" builds layers of drone into a sedate drift before pneumatic bullets of sounds disrupt the serene mood. Not for the fainthearted.
