Powell - New Beta Volume 2
Powell
New Beta Volume 2
LP | 2017 | EU | Original (Diagonal)
18,99 €*
Release:2017 / EU – Original
Genre:Electronic / Dance
Powell loosens up and reaches out on the 2nd New Beta playground for Diagonal, budging bones and buns in seven hot-stepping, curiously emotive permutations that swerve from Æ-style abstraction to pointillist electro-acid and a brace of mutant diskotheek breakers. As with the first volume, he’s clearly still gassed off his new hardware, resulting a nerve-jumping fizz and crack that sounds like he’s jamming with fingers directly in the jack ports.Like some cyborg antagonist who can’t stand to see humans plodding four square do-si-do in the dance, Powell fractures and gels the groove in wickedly freakish exercises, increasingly finding himself attracted to near beat-less structures to give his dancers and listeners more jelly limbed options for kinaesthetic interpretation and f**king weird feels.On PosTAe he prangs out in sincere tribute to arch ‘borgs Autechre with a hot mess of haywire modular plongs, before Sneak 2_05 catches him cutting back to the ascetic funk of his earliest 12”s, this time sharper, serpentine, before Rudeboy, Let’s Funk catapults us into something like a scrap between Trevor Jackson and Luke Vibert, all clipped drum clatter and acid zig-zags itching for the sweat, farts and perfume of the ‘floor.Slippy Pig jabs the B-side into play with some of the EP’s nattiest, stepping impulses drawing a line from The Normal thru Ed Rush’s Wormhole via The Bocaccio, then Drumz VIP darts like some deviant jazz-funk oddity from West London, with its dissonant flourishes making way for the febrile blatz of Hoi!! and the EP’s surprise standout in the richly colourful and dynamic phrasing of Strobe, perhaps the smartest/goofiest iteration of Powell’s new sound in circulation.
Evol - Right Frankfurt
Evol
Right Frankfurt
12" | 2016 | UK | Original (Diagonal)
12,99 €*
Release:2016 / UK – Original
Genre:Electronic / Dance
The incessant brain bogglers zig-zag back to Diagonal with the nerve-gnawing acid pointillism of Right Frankfurt after a series of purple-themed 12”s with iDEAL and Hypermedium and the zinging Do These sessions with F.C.O.U. and Presto!? Equivalent to an intravenous dose of acidic synthesis, Right Frankfurt nods to one of techno’s most efficient power centres with a PCP-on-Modafinil-strength reduction and concentration of early industrial techno tropes shorn of their skull-cracking beats and left to babble in an utterly alien coda.
NHK yx Koyxen - Self Split EP
NHK yx Koyxen
Self Split EP
12" | 2018 | EU | Original (Diagonal)
14,99 €*
Release:2018 / EU – Original
Genre:Electronic / Dance
The Self Split EP features Kouhei Matsunaga at his chimeric best for Diagonal, delivering two jazzy, freehand concrete collabs with Japanese sound artist and Eartaker noise maker, Masayuki Imianishi, plus two dance-offs with himself as NHK yx koyxen and Speedy K. Gelling Kouhei’s many sonic handles for a full spectrum showcase of style and pattern, the set is riddled with a singular mischievous genius at every fold and warp.
Not Waving - Good Luck
Not Waving
Good Luck
2LP | 2017 | EU | Original (Diagonal)
26,99 €*
Release:2017 / EU – Original
Genre:Electronic / Dance
Alessio Natalizia aka Not Waving rides the wave of a lifetime on his magnum opus, Good Luck. The London-based Italian artist’s second album for Diagonal is an emotional but fiercely optimistic LP of skewed cathartic dance pop written in the midst of these dark and uncertain times [made perhaps more uncertain by the recent birth of his first son]. It represents the most ambitious album in his own unique catalogue, a discography that features acclaimed work as part of Banjo or Freakout and Kompakt techno duo Walls — plus half a decade spent at the axis of underground electronics via his own Ecstatic label and his recent, raved-up output for Diagonal.

Powell
New Beta Volume 1
LP | 2017 | EU | Original (Diagonal)
21,99 €*
Release:2017 / EU – Original
Genre:Electronic / Dance
Powell returns to the fray with New Beta Vol. 1 — seven upfront and disarmingly colourful tracks that harness a renewed energy following the intense period of production behind his densely packed debut LP, Sport [XL, 2016]. Thanks, perhaps, to a looser approach and influx of new ideas and machines, the results find him at his most playfully experimental and nuanced, revealing new aspects to his mongrel sound not heard in previous releases.
Bronze Teeth - A Waif's Rent
Bronze Teeth
A Waif's Rent
12" | 2014 | UK | Original (Diagonal)
10,99 €*
Release:2014 / UK – Original
Genre:Electronic / Dance
London label Diagonal continue their swerve into caustic dancefloor territory with the debut pair of 12” releases from Bronze Teeth, a new project from Dominic Butler of Factory Floor and Richard Smith of Optimo Music’s L/F/D/M. Their extended technoid grooves perfectly match the project’s name — they’re tough, hard-edged and intricately sculpted for tensile strength and visceral impact.
Handy - Smacker EP
Handy
Smacker EP
10" | 2018 | EU | Original (Diagonal)
14,24 €* 14,99 € -5%
Release:2018 / EU – Original
Genre:Electronic / Dance
Includes a poretty mad sticker sheet for sleeve customisation. Diagonal whack out a demented début dosage from unknown operator Handy, who probes a queered zone between the bandy-legged funk of Cylob and the sound of Evol on a bender with Sophie. A perfectly curdled addition to the label’s 2018 campaign, the Smacker EP follows aces by Russell Haswell and The Modern Institute with a necessary helping of deviant cheekiness across four tracks of prodded, squeezed and fondled fonq.

Modern Institute, The
Another Exhibition Red Vinyl Edition
LP | 2018 | EU | Original (Diagonal)
23,99 €*
Release:2018 / EU – Original
Genre:Electronic / Dance
The release includes locked grooves. Diagonal pull out a zinging art-techno curveball with Another Exhibition at the Modern Institute, the 2nd EP by Glasgow’s hottest new prospect, The Modern Institute; an iconoclastic trio of agitators comprising Golden Teacher’s Richard McMaster and Laurie Pitt joined some droll, scaly Northern English vocalist for one of the freshest and vital blends of post-punk, art-school and techno sensibilities to emerge in recent memory.
Russell Haswell - Respondent

Respondent
LP | 2018 | EU | Original (Diagonal)
16,99 €*
Release:2018 / EU – Original
Genre:Electronic / Dance
Russell Haswell returns to Diagonal with a new five-track mini-album called Respondent. Not quite an EP nor long enough for a full album, this record marks a significant shift in direction for Haswell, who collaborates with a vocalist, Sue Tompkins, for the first time in a career defined by its unorthodoxy that now stretches Haswell says Respondent is influenced by these formative years when he was exposed to new sounds and ideas but lacked the ability and equipment needed to express himself. “In a way I’m regressing, but I’m not trying to regress with the music,” he says. “What I’m trying to do is think about how I felt and the energy and what this stuff communicated to me.”

Koehler / Stabudown Productions (Prostitutes) - Jim V Dan

Jim V Dan
12" | 2017 | EU | Original (Diagonal)
5,24 €* 14,99 € -65%
Release:2017 / EU – Original
Genre:Electronic / Dance
Renegade ravers, Koehler and StabUdown Productions - a new alias of James Donadio (Prostitutes) - get loose and chaotic in a deadly stand-off for Diagonal, firing four barrels of belligerent electronic shrapnel and sawn-off techno following a slew of crushing solo 12”s spread around the wrongest rave houses over the last five years. On Jim v Dan they offer a sort of snarky peer review of each other’s tackle, with each producer offering an original cut to be sniffed, prodded and mauled by the other in an itchy, virulent process of rugged refinement. While it may be hard to tell who takes the points after four rounds, either way the rave comes out on top.In round 1, Koehler makes the first move with Incoming Enemy, doling out a rictus tattoo of rail-gunning ‘ardcore breaks and bleeps that bite down with the curled-lip attitude you’d expect from indulging any of his ramrods on Berceuse Heroique and Skudge White. In response, StabUdown’s Jim Donadio gives back a sort of 2-stepped industrial shoulder barger nagged with gnashing breaks and dub-churned bass from the Valve playbook.For round 2, Jimlad takes the first slap with a mighty twist of dancehall techno recalling the sick mutations of Demdike Stare’s Wonderland LP, harnessing hardbody groove with sticky, stinging electronics for one of the deadliest shots in his armoury, which Koehler duly hypnotises with a sort of drunken snakestyle inversion, diffusing its reticulated energy into a spaced-out reel of bleeps and Uchronic AI techno - think B12 meets Orphan Drift. Mad tings. Recommended to all mutant ravers!
Prostitutes - Dance Tracksz
Prostitutes
Dance Tracksz
LP | 2017 | EU | Original (Diagonal)
17,99 €*
Release:2017 / EU – Original
Genre:Electronic / Dance
Dance Tracksz is the body-checking return of Prostitutes to Diagonal; a no pretences rave set built minimal and raw for hard worked ‘floors. The label’s Cleveland, Ohio ambassador has cut out any sentimentality and gone straight for the rave jugular with no concession to ascetic consistency, knocking up one of his fiercest examples of brutalist funk in the process.It’s Prostitutes’ 3rd and most substantial release for Diagonal, a swaggering and unzipped affirmation of the styles on 2013s Shatter And Lose and Ecstasy, Crashing Beats And Fantasy from 2015, and clearly catches the label’s close ally in the mood for getting wasted.Prostitutes’ Dance Tracksz are skooled with the sort of street knowledge and bluntness that perhaps comes from life as a Technopunk in a blue collar industrial city such as Cleveland, OH: the bullish, PCP-style hardcore bookends of Ah Yeah and War Goes On say their piece in no uncertain terms, whilst Bottle spits pure industrial street funk and Prey deals in riot-inciting jungle-tekno. Even the album’s sole moment of sentimentality, I Luv U Bruv - a gesture of affection for his label boss, Powell - is delivered with an acrid lash of electro-techno, but at least you know he means it. In a soundworld spoilt for choice, Prostitutes’ refusal of shiny tricks is admirable and almost subversive in the face of hands-in-the-air breakdowns, but there’s something about the way he wrenches out every last drop of rusty, jacking funk from his machines that leaves no doubt about Dance Tracksz effect at close quarters.

The Human Pet
LP | 2016 | EU | Original (Diagonal)

Release:2016 / EU – Original
Genre:Electronic / Dance
Elon Katz (White Car, Streetwalker) aligns perfectly with Diagonal in a prickling debut vocal release, The Human Pet; his first original solo issue in four years, containing an intensely personal, puckered perspective on electronic dance music and experimental pop.Structured around a schizoid yet coherent juncture of EBM, IDM, curdled rock music and art school techno-pop, The Human Pet is riddled with idiosyncratic notions on “cryptic topics like rebirth, nullification in stream speed adaptivity, dependence and wealth inequality” to portray a unique intellect and sonic vocabulary operating at the crux of his expressive powers.The project began circa 2012, around the time of Katz’s relocation from L.A. to art school in Chicago, and cocks a canny snook, both thru candid lyrics and obsessive edits, back towards the megatropolis where he was born and spent much of his youth. It can therefore be considered an attempt to better understand himself in relief of big city manias by channelling and parsing his own stubborn outsider personality from the madness.To our ears it feels like a concise dissection of Chicago’s industrial history and Californian digital psychedelia; probing at their twisted, fluoro guts with the inquisitive nature of a mad scientist or psycho-analyst between the yelping, warped and hyper-piquant yacht boogie of The Rhino Powder of New Sensitivity and a heavily affected dislocation of harmonised pop hooks and whirring body mechanics in Clean Crash.It all occupies a strange perch between introspective and exuberant, veering from mid-‘90s AFXian pop rephlexion in You Are Alone, to signature Diagonal tackle in the gas-chugging EBM-pop force of The Human Pet, whereas Unarmed twists into fractal phantasia, all of which maintain a thread of logic that belies the record’s vintaging period of refinement and distillation.There can be little doubt that this is one of the most complex, rigorous and distinctive in Diagonal’s catalogue.

Russell Haswell - As Sure As Night Follows Day
Russell Haswell
As Sure As Night Follows Day
2LP | 2015 | UK | Original (Diagonal)
19,19 €* 23,99 € -20%
Release:2015 / UK – Original
Genre:Electronic / Dance
As Sure As Night Follows Day is Russell Haswell’s landmark second album for London’s Diagonal Records. Consolidating a quarter-century at the coal face of extreme computer music, techno and death metal in 19 tracks and 49 minutes, it’s Haswell’s most coherent yet varied burst of activity to date — zigzagging from improvised n0!se outbursts and asphyxiated R&B to a brace of thundering acid bullets that positively froth for the ‘floor.The album was extracted over a fast-working period in late 2014, and is best perceived as a sort of fractured regression to his formative influences: you can hear the picnoleptic recollections of grindcore shows in the Black Country; the refracted shades of mega-raves at Coventry’s Eclipse; the conflating toxic texture-memories of early Japanese noise; and the incandescent stomp of Mills and Hood in that early 90s phase.Fortunately for the ravers, this album includes some of Haswell’s most direct dance floor attacks to date. ‘Hardwax Flashback’, for instance, finds him in pure tekno panik mode — a four-to-the-floor wrecking ball groove that someone, somewhere, may even be able to mix. ‘Gas Attack’ distils his penchant for all things Belgium into a vicious strain of New Beat lactic acid. Haswell then doffs his cap to Detroit electro legends Drecxiya on ‘Underwater Electronic Struggle’ — a story goes that he once thrashed a jet-ski all over the Mediterranean while listening to ‘Wave Jumper’ in his ‘phones — before he does the salty freestyle electro flex ‘ting on ‘Industry Knowledge [For Oscar]’ while reminding his trusty apprentice, Powell, that he still has a lot to learn. In between these ‘floor-flexers, we find more freakish disturbances and intrusive drum-box improvisations: the modular mind-floss of ‘Rave Splurge Noise’ or ‘Noise Rave’, for instance, or the self-explanatory ‘Improvisation #1’. ‘In The Air Today’ investigates warehouse-ready electro-acoustic percussion, while the chaotic clusters of ‘Interlude’ swarm and invade your senses with psychoacoustic incision. This is Diagonal and Russell at their most f**ked up and fizzy, and an important reminder of the artist’s stream-of-consciousness genius — and the pressing need for more chaos and unpredictability in electronic music today.

Dry Hardwave mechanisms for the floor. Four gaping cuts follow the red-ticking energy levels of recent outings for Night School, Spectrum Spools and Mira, dissipating heavy drug fug in favour of synapse-sparking moto-roil and blistered Hardwave funk — from entry to exit wound. This is pure street terror laced with swerve, and set to indelibly scrawl Prostitutes' name all over the modern mutant underground.

Release:2014 / UK – Original
Genre:Electronic / Dance
Russell Haswell strikes bone on this 2-track, 20 minute follow-up to the napalm massage of ‘Conceptual nO!se’ for Poland’s Bocian label, and his fearsome split with Pain Jerk for Editions Mego. It also marks his return to the catalytic Diagonal imprint after the deviant blatz of his ‘37 Minute Workout’ LP in early 2014, which was hailed at No.11 in The Quietus albums of the year so far.‘Double A’ renders Russell at his slyest and most honest, presenting spasmodic, un-edited improvisations belying influence from the pivotal epoch of diamond-cut ‘80s freestyle, industrial and Detroit techno. Depending on your perspective, they’re either splintered, tetchy DJ tools or skeletal nO!se inversions. Either way, they bristle and spark with a compulsive nervous energy and disciplined impulse control that’s Haswell to the core: challenging, uncompromising and bloody crucial.
