Following celebrated compilations from Motor City Drum Ensemble and Young Marco – and with the second edition of its limited-capacity festival in Croatia right around the corner – Dekmantel’s Selectors series now continues with an edition curated by Marcel Dettmann.Although he’s now known as one of the world’s most celebrated techno artists, even Marcel Dettmann had to start somewhere. Long before he ever held court at Berghain (or its predecessor, Ostgut), he was just another young boy in Eastern Germany, one whose earliest encounters with capitalism involved spending every penny he could scrape together down at the local record shop. In those days, it wasn’t techno that got him excited, but new wave, post-punk, industrial and EBM acts like Front 242 and Depeche Mode“It’s music from my childhood,” says Dettmann. “It’s still relevant and still inspires me.” That inspiration can be heard across this edition of the Selectors series, as Dettmann has put together what he describes as a “pre-techno compilation.” Much like the previous Selectors editions, the compilation is not a mix CD, but a collection of tracks hand picked by Dettmann from his own vinyl archives. Freshly remastered – and occasionally reworked or re-edited by Dettmann himself – the songs here are undoubtedly vintage gems, but they also represent a very personal journey into Dettmann’s past.“It was a great opportunity to dig deeper into my own musical outlook,” he explains. “The tracks come from a time before Marcel Dettmann became a DJ.” Simply put, the songs here are some of the building blocks upon which he’s built an incredibly storied career, and now he’d like to entrust them to future generations.

Die Schallplatte wird in einer limitierten Auflage von 500 nummerierten Exemplaren veröffentlicht. Die Farben des im Siebdruckverfahren hergestellten Covers wechseln alle 100 Exemplare ihre Farbe. F.S.K. (Freiwillige Selbstkontrolle) ist eine Art School Band aus München, die 1980 in der Redaktion des Underground Magazins Mode & Verzweiflung zusammenkam und verstörende Losungen einer neuen Dissidenz ausgab wie: Wir sagen Ja zur modernen Welt, oder: Heute Disco, morgen Umsturz, übermorgen Landpartie. Die Idee der italienischen Futuristen, Venedig zu fluten, fand bei ihnen fröhlichen Anklang. Und also erhoben sie die seriöse Forderung, Theater zu Parkhäusern umzuwandeln. Die futuristische Entwicklung sogenannter Lärmtöner (in produktiver Abwandlung der Geräusche der industrialisierten Großstädte, aber auch der völlig neuartigen Kriegsmaschinen des Ersten Weltkriegs) trug ein zentrales Moment der abweichenden Popmusik in deren aufkommenden Diskurs: die Übersteuerung, die Verzerrung, Bring the Noise.

Personliga artiklar (Personal items) is pure electrical energy from the bottom of rage to clean sanded adventurous sound hypnosis. Slim Vics music mixes sound worlds with clear impact in sound art and darkest ambient, likewise small flirts with underground-based techno and IDM. The album is a selection of previously unreleased material mixed with music that only existed on single or remixed versions earlier, personal articles. One of Sweden's most prominent artists in the spray painting, Rolfcarlwerner, has created all the artwork for the album. The cover to the original painting was painted directly inspired by the album's sound world and was shown at the exhibition 'Outside in 4.0' at the gallery Erik Axl Sund in Stockholm winter in 2016.

On the Echoing Green is an elegant work of shimmering sound, rendered by eternal electric romantic Jefre Cantu-Ledesma. Conceived as an experiment in collaboration, On Echoing Green is eight rapturous and melodic slow dives of swirling guitar, bass, synthesizer, piano, and drum machines, accented by heavenly vocal arcs from Argentinian musician Sobrenadar and contributions from Alexis Georgopoulous and Byron Westbrook. This is music of growth and grandeur, of ascent and exploration; in tune with the beauty of sound and the harmony of light.

Finally released on vinyl following a slew of acclaimed, instant sell out releases for both Polytechnic Youth and Ghost Box, comes the magnificent debut full length “Example One” from Brooklyn based Listening Center. Initially released on cassette only via the “This is care of” imprint in 2012, the call for a vinyl release grew pretty intense for both artist and label so -here you go. Enjoy, it’s a beauty!The set provided an introduction to the -then new- artist, and explored aspects of library music, kosmische musik, and lost soundtracks. Dusty analogue synths and drum machines, along with fragments of speech and field recordings provide a soundtrack as we clear a path through the undergrowth of memory. The material was recorded in Brooklyn and mixed at This Is Care Of studio in 2011, and originally included “Titoli”, (released by Ghost Box as part of their 7” study series, paired with an epic remix “Town of Tomorrow Today” by Pye Corner Audio.)This nigh on essential reissue -a first time on vinyl- via Polytechnic Youth, now affords us a another look through Listening Center’s retro-futuristic window, and is dressed as beautifully as it sounds; reverse board sleeves printed inside and out and released as a one time pressing of 500 only.

A magnificent full length, building handsomely on it’s esteemed predecessor’s huge acclaim; more utterly wonderful, occasionally playful analogue synth soundtracks, soundbites and tips of the hat especially, to the revered BBC Radiophonic Workshop output from 1968 onwards.The record also offers nods to the revered work of Conrad Schnitzler, Klaus Schulze and Edgar Froese yet sounds utterly new and contemporary; and you feel that a love of 1970s Childrens’ TV themes looms large during it’s creation also. Initially from Hereford, VIC MARS’ early releases were at first predominantly net based download affairs, however Japanese imprint “Symbolic Interaction” stepped in to release the magnificent “Kanransha” set, which in turn led to the Clay Pipe full length. He freely admits to there not being any particular concept to the album as such, here- but does point to the final track “Astrogator” being a “nod to when my Dad took the family all over Germany in 1980 in a clapped out Hillman Avenger. Even going into East Germany, which even as a kid kid I could feel how weird/oppressive it was there, plus I had never seen guards etc with guns before!”An absolute gem this one, in tasty reverse board sleeve and sure to go quick. A one time pressing of 500.

Ya Tosiba ist ein noch junges, in Berlin ansässiges Duo, das elektronische Beats, basslastige Riddims undGesangsüberlieferungen aus Aserbaidschan kombiniert. Für die Drum Machines und Synthesizer ist Mesak,Chef des finnischen Labels Harmönia und Pionier der skandinavischen Skweee-Musik, verantwortlich. AmMikro steht Zuzu Zakaria, die im Rahmen ihres Masterabschlusses an der Universität von Oslo in denvolkstümlichen Musikstil Meykhana abtauchte und sich in dieser Rap-artigen, durch Improvisation undRhythmik charakterisierten Gesangsform zu einer Spezialistin entwickelte. 2014 veröffentlichten die beidenihr Debüt "Mollah The Machine" bei Pingipung. Dessen Nachfolger "Love Party", der via Asphalt Tango in dieLäden kommt, setzt das begonnene Konzept einer paneuropäischen Weiterentwicklung kosmopolitischerClubmusik auf hochenergetische Weise fort. Dabei versteht sich "Love Party" nicht nur als exotischesPartyfutter, sondern zugleich als eine historische Dokumentation unterdrückter Stimmen. Meykhana war einsteine auf Baku beschränkte Gesangstradition, die unter Marginalisierten zirkulierte und Russisch, Türkisch,Dialekte und Slang hybridisierte. Dabei zeichnete Meykhana eine oppositionelle, in Sprachwitz verpackteHaltung aus. Mit dem Fall der Sowjetunion und dem Einzug des Kapitalismus hat auch das Genre einenWandel vollzogen und ist in der Mitte der Gesellschaft angekommen.

Mit dem Titel "The Seed (2.0)" feierte Cody Chesnutt 2003 seinen großen Durchbruch. Die Kollaboration mitder Hip-Hop-Combo The Roots basierte auf dem Song "The Seed", der Teil von Chesnutts im Jahr zuvorveröffentlichten Debüt "The Headphone Masterpiece" war. Nach einem kurzen und erfolglosen Aufenthalt inLos Angeles, wo er 1996 die Gruppe The Crosswalk mitbegründete, zog sich Chesnutt Anfang 2002 in seinSchlafzimmer zurück, wo neben seinem Bett auch noch ein 4-Spur-Aufnahmegerät, Bass, Keyboard, Gitarre,Orgel und andere Klangerzeuger herumstanden. Als Autodidakt hatte sich Chesnutt Gesang, Songwriting, dieBeherrschung diverser Musikinstrumente und Musikproduktion selbst beigebracht - und so klang "TheHeadphone Masterpiece" auch extrem persönlich. 36 recht eigenwillig-exzentrische, aber grunddurchsympathische Neo-Soul-Stücke mit Einflüssen aus den Siebzigerjahren, Funk, Rock, Blues und Hip-Hop hatteChesnutt im Alleingang fabriziert. Dass er sein - natürlich auf eigenem Label veröffentlichtes - "Meisterstück"mit dem "White Album" der Beatles verglich, fand seine Entsprechung in der Nominierung für den ShortlistMusic Prize 2003. Obwohl die Platte in der US-amerikanischen Kritikergilde für Aufhorchen sorgte, wurde eingrößeres Publikum allerdings erst durch die Roots-Zusammenarbeit auf Chesnutt aufmerksam.

Nachdem der 1968 in Atlanta geborene Cody Chesnutt 2002 zuerst sein vielgelobtes Debütalbum "TheHeadphone Masterpiece" veröffentlicht und im Jahr darauf mit dem Titel "The Seed (2.0)", einer Kollaborationmit der Hip-Hop-Formation The Roots, seinen kommerziellen Durchbruch gefeiert hatte, tat der Musiker etwasziemlich Ungewöhnliches: er nahm Abschied von der Öffentlichkeit und Superstartum, um sich stattdessenprivaten Dingen zu widmen, vorrangig der Familie, aber auch Hobbys wie der Fotografie und demGemüsegarten. Erst 2012 kehrte der vielseitige Autodidakt ins Rampenlicht zurück und legte mit "Landing OnA Hundred" sein zweites Album vor. Es erschien, wie auch dessen Vorgänger, beim Londoner Indielabel OneLittle Indian. Akustisch hatte sich - erfreulicherweise! - nicht sonderlich viel geändert. Abgesehen davon, dassdie Aufnahmen für "Landing On A Hundred" nicht mehr wie beim Debüt alleine im Schlafzimmer, sondern miteiner zehnköpfigen Band im Studio in Memphis stattfanden, und es daher zum einen weniger knisterte undzum anderen nun ein kompakter Bandsound dominierte, stand nach wie vor der Siebzigerjahre-Soul Pate.Garniert wurden die an Marvin Gaye, Al Green, Curtis Mayfield, Buddy Guy und Ike & Tina Turnergemahnenden Songs mit diversen Zutaten aus Funk, Blues und Rock.

Pantha du Prince aka Hendrik Weber war zu Beginn seines Schaffens eines der Zugpferde deseinflussreichen Hamburger Dance-Labels Dial. Mit "Black Noise", seinem ersten Album für Rough Trade,gelang ihm 2010 der Durchbruch. 2011 erhielt er für das Album bei der Echoverleihung den Kritikerpreis.Während er seine frühen Werke überwiegend alleine im Heimstudio in Berlin produzierte, entstand "TheTriad" in wechselnden Dreier-Konstellationen mit den Co-Musikern Joachim Schütz, Stephan Abry, ScottMou, Bendik Kjeldsberg, Kassian Troyer und Thilo Kuhn als Gruppenprojekt. Seit Mai 2016 war Weberbeinahe nonstop auf internationaler Tour. In diesem Zusammenhang fiel ihm auf, dass das Album über dievorhandenen Track-Versionen hinaus noch Ansätze für weitere Fassungen bot. Daraus entwickelte sich dieIdee für ein Ambient-Remix-Album, was angesichts Webers Vorliebe für sphärisches Rauschen, FieldRecordings und sanfte Beats wenig überrascht. Dieses erscheint als LP in einer limitierten Edition. Esverzichtet weitgehend auf die Rhythmen und Vocals des Originals. In den Worten des Künstlers: "Dieaufrechten Säulen des Rhythmus wurden ersetzt durch einen leichten Wind von Stille und nicht-strukturierten,flüssigen Bewegungen."

Now repressed!Arguably the label’s highest profile release thus far; the mighty Pye Corner Audio joining forces with PY label mate Faten Kanaan for an ace split 45.In PCA's Martin Jenkins' own words: “Faten Kanaan first came to my attention with her wonderful cassette release 'EP'. We started corresponding shortly after that and I always had it in mind that we should collaborate on something. So when PY asked if I would contribute to the label, and then released Faten's 'The Botanist & The Archaeologist' LP things seemed perfectly aligned”.A side “The Darkest Wave” features pulsing icy synth drones over which Faten’s cool NY narrative owes nods to some 70’s Carpenter-eque VHS chillwave soundtrack, (not unlike some of Umberto’s work of the last decade or so.) A beautifully evolving, slow burner piece which over continuous plays reveals one of the year’s great A sides so far. The B side is a stripped down piece more in keeping with the seminal minimal synth singles of the late 70s beloved by both artist and label here. Indeed, Martin Jenkins’ sleeve art also doffs it’s cap to the artwork feel of some of those legendary post punk 45s.A magical 45 released as a one time pressing of 500 45s on vinyl only with Polytechnic Youth discography card.

We like to let our artists speak for themselves about their music whenever possible so asked Penelope to tell us about her album : “In 2016. I rented out a small piano studio in East London for nearly the whole year and set out to write an introspective, trendless, and mostly beatless album. Inspired by albums from This Mortal Coil and Scott Walker, who also sought freedom to work outside of the expectations of their previous work, I limited the instrumentation to mostly an acoustic piano and effects, which left space to expose a lot of emotional vulnerabilities about myself and people close to me. Writing lullabies about being a mother in a dystopian world, with pensive words about swimming against the current as a female artist, I felt free enough to tell untold truths that I’ve never felt comfortable talking about within music. Free, liberated, empowered. naked.”

These two minimal synth-pop pearls were first released on the compilation “Walkin’ After Midnight” in 1982 and are in the same vein as early 80’s singles by Carol (Breakdown) and Rive Gauche (Friends Are Friends). Both tracks on the 7” are a delightful proof of the lively and creative music scene in Brussels during the early eighties, supported by labels such as Factory Benelux and Les Disques Crépuscule and the famous venue Plan K. Occidental White was founded at same time as Kaa Antilope, the extraordinary new wave band founded by Bernard Vranckx and Frédéric Walheer. Bernadette was the additional member and took care of the vocal part. The idea was to do 'pop' songs inspired by occidental white culture, which was the opposite to Kaa Antilope which was more focused on outside inspiration.

Santiago Leyba makes his vinyl debut on the label following the Rooms tape released earlier this year. Recorded simultaneously, Life, Money, Work shows the New York-based artist by way of Albuquerque, New Mexico, portraying the different characters one might have in a broken mind. Sketching a strong criticism of America by means of disorienting vocals and slow-paced D.I.Y. electronics, SANTIAGO finds him performing alter-egos of sorts — ranging from forlorn ballad singing, to more guttural and strained barking seeking to describe a conflict in maintaining a unified persona. Paid labor, sex, and consumer goods. How America tells you to grow up when there is nothing left but complacency and oppression through economic and social means. It all goes down to the shortcomings of humanity, the tangled webs we weave, the impossibility of justice and fairness, and the pressure those things put upon ourselves.

Over the last fifty years few musicians or performers have created as monumental and uncompromising a body of work as that of Keiji Haino. Through a vast number of recordings and performances Haino has staked out a ground all his own- creating a language of unparalleled intensity that defies any simple classification. For all this, his 1981 debut album Watashi Dake? has remained enigmatic. Originally released in a small edition by the legendary Pinakotheca label, the album was heard by only a select few in Japan and far fewer overseas. Original vinyl copies became impossibly rare and highly sought after the world over.Watashi Dake? presents a haunting vision – stark vocals, whispered and screamed, punctuate dark silences. Intricate and sharp guitar figures interweave, repeat and stretch, trance-like, emerging from dark recesses. Written and composed on the spot – Haino’s vision is one of deep spiritual depths that distantly evokes 1920’s blues and medieval music- yet is unlike anything ever committed to record before or since. Coupled with starkly minimal packaging featuring the now iconic cover photographs by legendary photog-rapher Gin Satoh, the album is a startling and fully realized artistic statement.

A reissue of the 1981 debut-album by new age pioneer JD Emmanuel. On 'Rain Forest Music' Emmanuel turns gentle, short cycles of notes into floating clouds of sound, mostly improvising around single chords. The "minimalism" in his music lies not in repetitive patterns that barely change -the extreme end of classical minimalism-, but more in the spare arrangements. This edition is limited to 1.000 copies.

Soul Jazz Records’ new Space, Energy and Light is a collection of music by early electronic and synthesizer pioneers (from the 1960s through the 1970s), mid-1970s proto-new age gurus and 1980s guerrilla D-I-Y cassette-era electronic artists, spanning in total over a near 30-year time frame. All of these artists used electronic advancements in music technology as a means of exploring not only space and the idea of the future, but also of looking inwards to the soul and of creating music in harmony with the natural world.From computer software and hardware experimentalists and sound pioneers such as Laurie Spiegel and Kevin Braheny, as well as Mother Mallard’s Portable Masterpiece Company – the first synthesizer ensemble created in collaboration with Robert Moog – through to the earliest musique concrète experimentation of Tod Dockstader, the album shows how technological advancements and creative artistic expression went hand in hand. In the mid-1970s artists Steven Halpern and Iaxos were instrumental in creating proto-new age music, experimenting in both the healing properties of sound and its relationship with the natural world. These artists also pioneered a new self-contained and underground D-I-Y approach to music, creating their own record labels, forming new distribution networks (with albums sold in meditation centres, health food stores and ashrams) far away from the commercialism of the mainstream music industry. In the early 1980s after the revolution of punk, these D-I-Y attitudes and ideas appeared once more in the growth of the distinctly anti-commercial and underground cassette-only careers of artists such as Germany’s Stratis and Carl Matthews in Britain.

Notilus is the new project of five established French musicians combining cinematic soundscapes, energetic jazz and atmospheric live electronics. The cleverly compiled repertoire varies from positively trombone and sax driven jazz parts with a deep sense for sophisticated melodies to calmer, melancholic soundscapes back to beat driven, dynamic, buzzy sound cascades. Sometimes the albums delivers a feeling of a soundtrack for a 70s crime movie - sometimes it sounds like an intergalactic, retro-futuristic trip.

Within these pieces, we find a surreal treasure hunt that helps guide us through Dilloway’s obsessions, neurosis and influences while also developing a splintered maturity of someone with great complexity stumbling through a well thought out, yet totally unplanned “long game” of an artistic career.

After studying dance, Kirikoo Des aka Nsdos, felt the need to create his own sound in order to explore movement. This is how he started imagining a whole new sonic order, an alternative approach to music – through abstraction. Nsdos can’t restrain himself to existing technological tools and softwares, he prefers creating his own mediums: futurist instruments made of old audio converters (carte son), gameboy emulators, pieces of metal dismantled and weld together giving form to surreal machines. Surrounded by his hybrid tools, Nsdos unravels the rectilinear anatomy of techno music. Textures are exploded, sounds mutilated, and brought back to their essence. This sonic odyssey, Nsdos initiated in his native town Paris before exploring it deeper in Berlin – a city that he sees as a giant laboratory in which he experimented the field of possibilities.

Alessandro Cortini (Nine Inch Nails) and Japanese noise legend Masami Akita (Merzbow) share a mutual love for the EMS Synthi, a British synthesizer from the early '70s that's notorious for its patch matrix, portability and distinct tone. Astonishingly, these two disparate artists meld into a single sound as they flex the analogue circuitry of the EMS Synthi in new ways. They give this classic synth a modern workout and prove that, in capable hands, a 40 year old analogue synthesizer is a tool for the ages.

First Word Records are very proud to present a heavyweight EP in collaboration with seminal groove collective, CoOp: 'Selectors Assemble'. It's been almost two decades since a bunch of music makers, bored of the genre constraints of their time, began toying with time signature and syncopation to birth what is now known as broken beat. Summer 2017, the 'Selectors Assemble' EP is in our laps and we have a fitting reminder and long-overdue renaissance of one of London's most valuable musical movements.IG Culture and Alex Phountzi were integral to this movement, the focal point being the CoOp club night, which ran predominantly on the famed floors of Plastic People, up until 2007. CoOp remerged late in 2015 as a Boiler Room session, in which the originators linked effortlessly with new school players such as K15 and Alex Nut. The following day, a session was inspired between an assortment of artists, and the seeds were planted for the 'Selectors Assemble'.Here we have the first offering. The steady-paced roller of 'Gangz' (IG & Seiji), the dutty wine-ready getdown of Henry Wu's 'Substance', the heads-down low-end theory of '2nd Intention', the dominant soundclash call-out of the 'Spartan Riddim', riding out with the garage-flecked jam 'Can't Hold It', also featuring Sonar's Ghost (Domu). Five tracks deeply rooted in groove and as beautifully diverse as Bruk ever was.Pressed up lovingly onto 140g vinyl, this release is accompanied with a fully-printed insert, featuring an extensive piece on the history of Bruk, written by Andwot (Touching Bass), classic photography by Sarah Ginn, and full-colour artwork by Mitchy Bwoy, a legendary artist to the original scene in his own right. This is an essential artefact for followers of the sound, new and old.First Word prides itself on its ethos of musical diversity, and we're ecstatic to welcome aboard the CoOp foundation to the stable. A crew of British dance music pioneers, sound-system legends, and now-school heavyweights, this is but a taste of what's to come. Lead by the don IG Culture, the family spirit has quickly formed, the selectors have assembled. The stage has been set for bruk's second wind. Be ready.

* New from In Paradisum also the home of Low Jack and December. This album is the most straight-forward and cohesive Mondkopf album to date due to his switch to analog synthetisers. «They Fall…» has been recorded live in his room in Paris at night on the sadly memorable month of November 2016. * The record has something familiar with Mondkopf's previous output with the raw textures and half-light atmospheres, but the rest is a radical change for him. The synth pads of "They Fall... "are neither retro nor futuristic. In addition to Paul's fragile vocals, they exhale a distinct feeling of just being there. The tracks follow their own path by being focused and vital. "They Fall But You Don't" is the singular manifesto of a relationship to electronic music that leaves out the ideas of innovation and genre and more resembles the language of a new folk music; deeply evocative, powerful and free.

In the seventies he rose to prominence as part of NON, collaborating with Boyd Rice, before leaving to pursue his own moreexpansive solo vision during the eighties. After years of silence, Robert started to release music again in 2008 - together with noise artist Aaron Dilloway and on his own.* Präsens Editionen is happy to release this ambient soundscapes by Industrial-pioneer Turman as a limited edition of 100 professionally dubbed cassette tapes.

Release:2017 / EU – Original
Genre:Electronic / Dance
* Subtext presents Clear Stones, the first meeting between two distinct voices from New Zealand. In a unique collaboration, Māori sound artist Rob Thorne (Ngāti Tumutumu) and Berlin-based electronic composer Fis dismantle boundaries in space, time, and genre, juxtaposing Thorne's living, breathing practice with the weight of modern sound systems.* Recording sessions at Berlin's Red Bull Studios were the starting point, committing Thorne's traditional Māori instrumentation to tape. Made of wood, stone, bone and shell, the instruments of taonga pūoro (translating to ‘singingtreasures') include various oblique-style flutes, horns, percussion, and objects spun above the player's head during performance. Amongst the instrumentation deployed by Thorne on Clear Stones is the Pūtātara (conch horn), Pūrerehua (bullroarer), and Tumutumu Kōhatu (stone percussion). However it's the Pūtōrino that features most regularly throughout; an instrument that is both flute and horn, both voices captured in one single take by Thorne on mid-album epic ‘Glurn Herrin'. Thorne has been performing in New Zealand for some 25 years, and the release of his debut solo album Whāiate Māramatanga on Rattle Records in 2014 garnered wide critical acclaim, including a nomination for ‘Best Maori Traditional Album' at the 2014 Waiata Māori Music Awards.* Since his debut on Tri Angle Records in 2013, Fis has released a string of acclaimed albums, including his Subtext debut From Patterns to Details in 2016, ending up in end-of-year lists at both FACT magazine and The Quietus. Starting with Thorne's taonga pūoro recordings, Fis sculpts bold new settings for the music, mired in deep bass and vast synthetic tones, at times pushing Thorne's wood, stone, and bone into total transformative saturation. The conversation that emerges between these two artists encompasses technology and nature, computers and physical instruments, historical narrative and the present, perceived secularity and sacredness, framing them all as aspects of one single, conscious whole.

* The album follows Clap! Clap!'s debut album, 2014's 'Tayi Bebba', which sound-tracked the tour of an imaginary island. ‘A Thousand Skies' is a mix of Crisci's career to date combining samples and live instrumentation from Clap! Clap! and collaborators such as South African folk singer Bongeziwe Mabandla, John Wizards, and OY. As with his debut, the album is anchored by a story — this time of a young girl's journey through the stars — which completes the work. * Clap! Clap!'s unique blend of global dance and timeless sounds draws from nature, traditional music, field recordings and the electronic savvy of modern centres like Chicago and London. At its core is the inspiration of everyday life, what Crisci calls “the search for new flavours.”* The now internationally acclaimed producer and performer started his career age 13 in the mid–1990s as a rapper, before picking up the saxophone and performing both jazz standards and jazz/punk fusion with his band Trio Cane. Now, as Clap! Clap!, he's taking his energetic live shows across Europe and Japan. Following the release of his debut album in 2013, has found a fan in Paul Simon who told Rolling Stone the LP is “a masterpiece. He makes music sound new and old at the same time”. This led to Crisci to collaborate on the production for this years Number 1 Paul Simon album ‘Stranger to Stranger'.* With a passion for history and the sounds that surround us, Clap! Clap! is a unique electronic artist capable of both channeling the energy of the moment and the intricacies of where we come from to create music that can soundtrack where we're going.

27,99 €*
Release:2000 / EU – Reissue
Genre:Electronic / Dance
Tosca's second album 'Suzuki' (Studio K7) takes a lighter, airier approach to the trip-hop terrain that Opera explored. The spare, shimmering title track's delicate synth textures, minimal beats, mellow rhythms, and breathy vocal samples set the tone for more moody musical fairytales from Richard Dorfmeister, this time with Rupert Huber under the guise of Tosca. Suzuki is--like his releases with Kruder and Dorfmeister--a sublime work that manipulates emotions through sound. Soft and sweet, subtle and supple, Tosca's tracks drift, sifting from one dream to the next. Though they patch hip-hop, jazz, ambient, and techno together, you can't hear where one begins and the other ends. "Annanas" pairs sneaky, squeaky scratching with a lusty female vocal and bossa-nova-inspired hip-hop breaks, while "Orozco" loops a playful riff, running it through reverbs and filters, creating something like pure bliss for the ears.

Tadd Mullinix’s Charles Manier project returns with a third double-LP, Luxus Steroid Abamita, an edict of nine new amorphous transmissions and clustered, clangorous, hemi-synthetic funk. This is experimental machine music: it’s inspired by the fringes of dance, but skirts petrified arpeggios and other stock Wave and Technopop emblems. Its spirit elicits Sheffield Post-Punk and Düsseldorfer NDW desiderata, but exploits are crisp, psychedelic, and expansive. Lyrics come as laconic Dada, sociopolitical impressions—in counterpoint to concrète tape smears, echoing guitar deluges, and entrenched in ever-shifting grime. A wide spectrum of density is proffered. Atmospheric zones are submerged, modulating knells. When tempos increase, sample & hold mutations make synthesizers sputter and writhe. The title track and opus,“Yopo (Calcium Tree)” carry this with heavy pulses—storming like locomotives.

This is a collection of works from British musician GP Hall, recorded between 1994 and 1999. For over four decades, guitar in hand Hall encountered many styles; jazz, blues, flamenco, rock, folk, and classical improvisation. All contributed to the creation of his unique style. Emerging from the British blues boom of the 1960’s, he then followed a long and winding path through various scenes and cultures. In Spain, he was Influenced by flamenco master Manitas Del Plata before touring Europe with Liverpool band Casey Jones & the Governors. He was commissioned three times (twice by The Arts Council of Great Britain) for original music and was immersed in the avant-garde scene of the 1970’s as an improviser, a pioneer of electric flamenco and a composer of large-scale ensemble pieces. During the 1980’s Hall turned his focus to soundtrack music before reinventing himself as the solo performer he is today.With this strong foundation he branched into a tactile expression of his craft, discovering a new style which he called industrial sound sculptures. These sonic compositions are performed on electric and acoustic guitars as well as the six-string bass and are played with various techniques and implements including slides, battery fans, the psaltery bow, razors, toys, Velcro and crocodile clips which are fed through sound processors to create a rich sonic environment.

Thomas Leer is an innovative electronic musician from Port Glasgow, Scotland. He began singing for a local band at age 13, and was writing his own music by 18. By 1977, he had moved to London, where he fronted Pressure, a Clash­-esque punk group with fellow experimental Scottish musician Robert Rental. After hearing Kraftwerk, Leer became interested in synthesizers – not long after, he was exploring the experimental techniques of Eno, Zappa, Beefheart, Faust, and Can. In 1978, Thomas released his first single, “Private Plane”/“International”, on his own Oblique Records that we reissued in 2015.“1979” is a 14-song collection spread across two pieces of vinyl clocking in at 70 minutes. Leer says, “1979 was a great year for making music. The punk explosion two years earlier, cleansed the palate and opened up minds to new sonic possibilities. It was in this spirit I took to exploring electronics and set up my first little home studio. Bearing in mind this was before such luxuries as Portastudios or affordable multi-tracks, I decided sound quality was less important than experimentation and innovation, so I pressed on with the meager equipment I had. My tabletop studio in Crouch End, North London, consisted of two cassette machines, a copycat tape echo, some FX pedals, Ring Modulator, Guitar, Bass & Wasp Synthesizer.” Songs range from half serene atmospheres, to minimal rhythmic workouts, to tape loops layered behind distorted guitars, to cold layered singing, all with a psychedelic lo-fi attitude.All songs have been remastered for vinyl by George Horn at Fantasy Studios in Berkeley. The jacket features an industrial photo of a man standing on an overpass with a passing truck taken by Thomas’ brother Andy Wishart in 1980. Each copy includes a two­-sided black and white postcard with liner notes by Thomas. 38 years later this is fresh UK D.I.Y. post­-punk, compelling pop with a dark heart, vacillating between the pretty disturbing and the disturbingly pretty.

At first glance, Carpenter Brut's influences are '80s TV shows amd B-movies, loaded with synthesizer music. Listening to his home made EP's, however, one would rather bet on a black metal background, a crush for Dario Argento and a force-fed religious education. This would explain his satanic mood, his passion for kitsch sounds and his adoration for all kinds of enjoyment. Whatever his influences may be, Carpenter Brut does not lack the talent to create in-your-face vintage killer tracks. This is the long-awaited reissue of Carpenter Brut's self released EP trilogy, presented as a luxurious 3LP.

Isolation Diaries is Argentinian producer Alejandro Mosso's 2nd album. It comes more than ten years after his debut, Hiperborea in 2005. He says "I think the album is warm, emotive and nostalgic but not dark nor sad. It is percussive and melodic but not laid back and Balearic. It is tribal and organic but still very precise", as only electronic music can be. The grooves are strong and infectious and the sounds are rich and satisfying, resulting in music that sounds very organic and unpremeditated. The album is accompanied by a Burnt Freidman remix of the track Isolation Diaries, and a Ricardo Villalobos remix of Deardrum.

Danny Scrilla returns to Cosmic Bridge Records with a full-length project inspired by a desire to experiment outside of club conventions. While Cosmic Bridge has become known for forward-thinking, dubwise dancefloor mutations, label founder Om Unit has long been a fan of ambient and synthesizer music and Ancient Musical Box offers a current take on the format, with 16 tracks of lush electronic compositions and meditations. Fittingly, Ancient Musical Box also marks the label’s first cassette release.Ancient Musical Box was written over the past year as a direct reaction to Danny’s frustration with club music and the inevitable cynicism that can sometimes arise from prolonged contact with scenes, styles, and genres. “I wanted to create something without any ulterior motives,” he explains. As the tracks accumulated, the project took on a personal dimension and therapeutic qualities. Intent on not over-thinking or polishing his ideas, Danny created something that is less album and more “a collection of emotions in their rawest form.”Despite not being intended for the dancefloor, the music on Ancient Musical Box still bears clear relations to Danny’s catalogue in its minimalist approach and use of melodic motifs. You can hear it in the hazy crescendo of ’Night Sweats’, the wobbly funk of ‘Pangalactic Gargleblaster’, and the gentle keys of ‘Talisman’. Alongside these are more experimental moments, seemingly fragile in their simplicity but hiding a depth that reveals itself in context: the delicate loops of the title track, the vibrations of ‘Cryopod’, the melancholy progressions of ‘Too Little Too Late’.Ancient Musical Box is the sound of a producer remembering that the best ideas are the simplest, in the process pointing to new directions.

2nd is the second album of Italian electronic music composer Giuseppe Ielasi under the Inventing Masks moniker. In comparison to the first Inventing Masks album from last year, 2nd is texturally much richer, even luxurious. Ielasis' generative beats evolved into polyrhythms that give IM2 an air of restrained funkiness, not unlike fellow composers Jan Jelinek or Andrew Pekler. It seems Giuseppe Ielasi enventually found his very own niche.

Audiosapr is one of the most consistent albums you re likely to come across in Russia s GOST ZVUK entire back catalogue. Surprisingly, the full-length by Saint Petersburg s scene veteran Kuzma Palkin is a compilation of random jams and studio recordings he made in the period of 2014-2015, carefully pieced together by label s masterminds. SAPR stands for the System of Automatic Projection (a Russian term for Computer-Aided Design, CAD) which defines the album s experimental yet complex and interlocking heart. Based around a central theme of immediacy and spontaneity, Audiosapr builds upon the foundations of early, pre-Detroit era of electro and techno, and then progresses the wispy entrails of analogue gear in a contemporary dancefloor direction. It s clearly music that can be attributed as hybrid, however it s not you re going to think about while listening to Audiosapr , Palkin s definitely most inspiring work to date.

Mihkel Kleis – man behind the Ratkiller moniker – listens to music on the verge of human capacity. And from what he hears, he compiles TOP 500 end of year lists to his friends. Big Tip - incredible talent from Talinn... do not sleep on this taped nightmare.. cult!.While not listening, he is probably making music. His ventures on underground music date back to late 1990s. He started in space-age jazz-rock and prog band formed in art university in Tallinn, Estonia, but has mostly recorded on his own under different aliases – cultivating from black metal to library music. If you look close enough you can get massive box-set of all his recordings with prints by the man himself.With Ratkiller, Mihkel Kleis started sometime around 2011, trying to catch his idiosyncratic impression of everything that can be called "contemporary electronic club music". Although, as he has said: “I still don't know how it actually should be done. In a way I am like a parrot - I like to imitate but I don't have any clue what I'm saying.”After several tape-releases on labels Rotifer Cassettes, Baba Vanga, ;paranoia and Crash Symbols "Meltdown of the Highest Order" is his first material on vinyl.PS Mihkel also likes to draw and design his album covers.

Im Hag is the debut Ghost Box album from Berlin based Sebastian Counts’ ToiToiToi. Following on from his single for the label’s Other Voices series in 2015, it’s very detailed and lovingly produced music, crafted from electronic, synth, sampled and acoustic sources.The music and design explores the polarities of folklore vs modernity, and wilderness vs civilisation.It’s an album about German culture but it pre-empts a nostalgia for the vanishing concept of internationalism, once exemplified by town twinning. It’s also a warm-hearted record, hopefully a tiny morale booster against Europe’s resurgent spectres.As always the beautiful LP packaging is designed by Julian House. The 180gm LP includes a free download card. Its a wunderkammer of an album crammed with original ideas. All at once managing to be witty, spooky, melodic and abstract.

‘Divination’ is the second LP to come from Liam Blackburn’s Ancestral Voices project. Where his debut LP ‘Night of Visions’, reconstructed his rhythmic approach into a primal framework, ‘Divination’ sheds the beats almost entirely and focuses on soaring drones and Liam’s refined approach to ambience. There is moments of tempered elation (Revelation, Inscriptions, Cleromancy), contrasted with black hole soundtracks (Geomancy, Hieratic) with the overall feel of ‘Divination’ becoming a gently traversing voyage through a revolving mood-scape. With ‘Divination’ following more beat oriented EP’s for Samurai Music and Horo, Liam redefines the sound of Ancestral Voices with every release. ’Divination’ is a glistening example of the singular voice he provides to electronic music.‘Divination’ is pressed on crisp white vinyl 3x12" housed in a deluxe full artwork sleeve with spot varnished runes exclusive to the LP version.

Release:2017 / EU – Original
Genre:Electronic / Dance
Raincloud Records has announced its debut release, a two-track 12” from Mancunian duo Alan Johnson. Lead track, ‘Operator’, is a punchy, spacious stomper laced with golden-era grime horns and strings. Delayed, disembodied clicks, claps and pulses echo throughout along with a call-to-arms vocal pulled straight from the soundclash. On the flip, ‘The Poet’ builds an enormous groove out of broken percussion, spoken word and an intermittent woodwind sample in a manner that recalls early DMZ white labels. This will be Alan Johnson’s first standalone release since 2013’s standout ‘Goron Sound’ on Blank Mind. The duo channel golden-era UK soundsystem music of the mid-to-late noughties into a tight techno template, blending serious bass pressure with a dynamic rhythmic approach that pulls in influences from across the spectrum. As much touched by the bounce of UK funky as the driving tempo of techno or the abstract synths of instrumental grime, Alan Johnson’s music is emblematic of a generation that has lived through one of the most fruitful and creative periods of UK electronic dance music to date. Founded by producer/DJs Caski and Near – who have previously released as individuals on labels including Tectonic, Keysound, Ghost, EMF, Trapped Audio & Pretty Weird – Raincloud Records builds on Bristol’s famed heritage as one of the UK’s most exciting musical hubs. Sitting somewhere between early Hemlock and Hotflush, and the more industrial leanings of Livity Sound, Swamp 81 and Houndstooth, Raincloud aims to provide a home for artists reveling in a no-boundaries approach to making music for the dancefloor.
