Review: Oscar 'Facta' Henson is the latest artist to pop up on Berceuse Heroique's occasional Ancient Monarchy offshoot. In keeping with the label's consciously off-kilter approach, "Something's Gonna Happen" is a devilishly wayward affair, with cascading, almost melancholic melody lines and fuzzy chords tumbling over a sludgy but metallic rhythm track. On the flip you'll find the dark, EBM-influenced, muscular techno throb of "Sweet Sixteen", and a bonus remix of "Something's Gonna Happen" by fellow Bristol resident DJ October. The sometime Skudge artist draws on his EBM influences, delivering a surprisingly funky reinterpretation that makes great use of Henson's metallic percussion hits.

Review: Berceuse Heroique's Ancient Monarchy adds to the Parris story with three beautiful remixes that add and enhance the mysterious London artist's unique vibe all the more. Sam Kidel condenses the vast spacious valleys on "South Side Of The Mountain" with more of a rolling, hardened feel to the drums. Osvmvsm, meanwhile, pays respect to the kick-free "Skeletal" but turbo charges the glock melody with much more of a militant focus and energy. Finally Helm strips "Bloom" right back to its key atmosphere then rebuilds with an ambient, heavily textured and sensory experience.

South East Of The Mountain - (6:13) 57 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
from $1.96
Review: With the likes of Batu drawing so much attention for his new bend on techno, how about a little appreciation for what Parris is doing. For an idea of what Parris has done with a 808 bass drum check out his Idle Hands debut then revert back to this 12"s woofing "Skeletal". With some light percussion added over the top, this track demands a proper dub soundsystem. It's a similar situation on "Bloom" too, only the bass has been turned down to allow for something a little more subtle... a little. Meanwhile "South East Of The Mountain" provides an alternative rhythm track with atmospheric marimbas and other African percussion giving the production as much an exotic flavour as it does an urban touch.

Review: Ancient Monarchy welcomes back the darkly beats of Rhythmic Theory for a second time following the Bristol producer's Lucid State / Shores of Caladan 12" which opened the Berceuse Heroique sub-label's account last year. It's dropping around the same time as Parris' debut 12" on AM (don't miss that) with Rhythmic Theory still reeling from releases on Idle Hands and Blackest Ever Black's A14 imprint. This four-track EP serves up two syncopated techno cuts - "Travelling Without Moving" the hit - with "The Bends" simmering the bass in compensation for some extra reverb. The two beatless cuts veer into ambient dub techno territory with strokes of trance and rave thrown to not upset Echospace.

Review: For this one, we see the highly experimental flavours of SKRS get to work on a full length project entitled 'Paradise Magic Traxx' in association with the Ancient Monarchy imprint. This eight track wonderbox is a real mix and blend of flavours, spanning through a range of tempos and themes, each more eccentric than the last. The standout moments for us include the fantastic use of sampling on 'Forgotten Lovers' which scatters soulful vocals into the blender to great effect. The dubwise influences on 'Gunshot Riddim' and 'Dub Shoulda Known' are also worth a solid mention, along with the soulful sub rolls of 'Give Dem' and spacious use of jazz chord arrangements on 'Rollout Riddim'. As a project this is a great dive into SKRS's creative energies.
