Rkss - DJ Tools
DJ Tools
LP | 2018 | EU | Original (UIQ)
15,99 €*
Release:2018 / EU – Original
Genre:Electronic / Dance
This is the first album on Lee Gamble’s UIQ label. Contemporary computer musician, Robin Buckley a.k.a. rkss reasembles mainstream EDM sample packs on the killer, unconventional ‘DJ Tools’ LP for Lee Gamble’s UIQ. Manipulating off-the-shelf sounds from ‘EDM Kicks Vol.1’ through various processing techniques, rkss explores the politics and aesthetics of club culture, technology and queerness by radically altering these preconceived, “purpose-built” blocks of sound from their original use, and rendering them in a spectrum of non-standard, ambiguous designs that both highlight, abstract, and reimagine the samples’ social function.
Lee Gamble - Chain Kinematics
Lee Gamble
Chain Kinematics
12" | 2016 | EU | Original (UIQ)
16,99 €*
Release:2016 / EU – Original
Genre:Electronic / Dance
Lee Gamble strikes from the void with Chain Kinematics; the 1st release on his UIQ Inversions series - exclusively reserved for personal productions, and intended to run parallel and perpendicular to UIQ proper, which has heavily impressed with early 12”s by N1L and ZULI since emerging in 2015.This is Lee Gamble upping the dynamics and heading into new realms at the intersection of jungle tekno ballistics and ambient dimensions, providing UIQ with its most forward, heady, and hard-to-classify material, and possibly best representing the delirium and oneiric appeal of Gamble’s incredible DJ sets.Dovetailing the artist’s interests in astrophysics, geometry and the dancefloor’s mechanical systems, Chain Kinematics presents four powerful studies for bodies in motion and students of the future; bending time, light and space between 004’s mutated percussive dimensions and the thizzing warehouse wormholes of For Infernomatics, the suspended proprioceptions of Kinematics’s emulation of a night flight thru Gamble’s glittering grey matter, through to the helter skelter torque of Cnull, ending proceedings with what sounds like a bombed-out building site and a helicopter flying past...Hear for yourself; they’re undoubtedly some of Lee Gamble’s strongest, layered and developed dancefloor productions, awaiting your immersion and collision with compatible trajectories and objects from all quarters of the ‘floor and beyond.
Zuli - Numbers
12" | 2017 | EU | Original (UIQ)
12,34 €* 12,99 € -5%
Release:2017 / EU – Original
Genre:Electronic / Dance
Currently undertaking a residency at the prestigious EMS Stockholm, Egyptian producer Ahmed El Ghazoly makes a stunning 2nd mark on Lee Gamble’s UIQ label with Numbers, a ruggedly chopped but spatially hypersensitive suite of encrypted electronic rhythms and entrancing, mirage-like geometries.Boldly committed to his own niche between the folds of grime, techno and electro-acoustic dimensions, Zuli’s follow-up to the Bionic Ahmed EP pushes it’s loping designs into stranger, spaces within the sound field, finding an idiosyncratic ecology of frequency that finds room for dense, physical subbass, smeared vocals and iridescent motifs amid its morphing dimensions.The six tracks exemplify Zuli’s playfully paradoxical approach to club music, experimenting with tessellating dry and fluid textures in the dusty, humid London-via-Cairo swerve of Bow which cranks opens the EP, to the metastable techno momentum in the buckling rolige of CommProto, while She’s Hearing Voices feels like a smoking area between rooms, heard in a queasy but spangled state.That all feels like preparation for the second wind of the B-side, which convulses into action with the chromatic trance warp of What You Do and its grubbing Autechrian inversion, Tongue Chomper, only to slide off the page in Foam Home’s future primordial glob of melted dancehall.The hooks may be less explicit or tangible here than on his debut EP, but Numbers is proof, if it were needed, of a restless mind which is only just coming into its own.
Sim Hutchins - Vantablank Stare EP
Sim Hutchins
Vantablank Stare EP
LP | 2017 | EU | Original (UIQ)
9,59 €* 11,99 € -20%
Release:2017 / EU – Original
Genre:Electronic / Dance
Lee Gamble’s UIQ welcomes Sim Hutchins to the hyperprism with Vantablank Stare, an insightful A/V project born from a personal discontent with the vacuous repetition of 24 hour rolling news coverage, and presenting a critical response to, in his own words; “the daily bombardment of news items on corruption and our societal inclination to be ‘in the know’ about current affairs”. Aesthetically, the EP’s three tracks of roiling post-junglism and fractured dub techno tessellations most acutely recall the tumbling designs of N1L and Lanark Artefax 12”s but, its conceptual drive is closer to Sam Kidel’s Disruptive Muzak in the way it extracts from current socio-political issues ubiquitous to nearly all our lives, and especially for anyone living in the UK right now. The dissection of its subject is most literal in the accompanying video, presenting stark, stock CGI representations of those coldly contemporary news studios that we’ve all seen too much of in recent times, with accompanying banners ribboning fake “statements” and “breaking news” that, on first glance, are almost indistinguishable from the ‘real’ thing, yet coolly subvert the text to their own end, exposing its function as a tool for public control.However, the music is less literal and more elusive, abstract and metaphorical, using samples of radio waves, covert signals and intercepted E-Comms as the raw material for an impressionistic tussle of invisible forces, translating as head-stretching recursive phase shifts and disembodied jungle structures in Some Men (you) Just Want to Watch the World Burn and as an allegory for passive, anxious textural attrition in Nescience Is Not Ignorance on the A-side, whilst the B-side unfurls a knottier tract of warped, quicksilver dub techno with Some Men (me) Just Want to Let the World Burn, which, you’ll notice, contrasts with the title of the A-side, and lays bare the artist’s paradoxical dilemma; highlighting the difference between disrupting the system and sitting back and waiting for its inevitable demise.
N1L - Ikea Zen EP
Ikea Zen EP
12" | 2017 | EU | Original (UIQ)
12,99 €*
Release:2017 / EU – Original
Genre:Electronic / Dance
N1L lurches back into cranky post-techno action on Lee Gamble’s label with the Ikea Zen EP: six tracks of deviant, obtuse dance music that brings the future to heel with X amount of noise and abstract funk.Having the honour of inaugurating UIQ with the Wrong Headspace EP, Martin Rokis’2nd volley feels more pinched and nervy, rolling out with discombobulating effect akin to caffeinated browser window-hopping or being physically rendered as an algorithmic .gif or holographic projection while in the middle of the dance.Depending on your tolerance for vertigo and motion sickness, that sense of quantum instability is entirely pleasurable or quease-inducing. Maybe we were bounced on our heads too much as kids, but we’re definitely in the former set and all up for being turned inside out.A-side he plays with the gearbox as a Rubik’s cube in #accelerate, slipping in and out of meter and focus with bewildering diffusion of grime ballistics and gyroid vox before Sleep Architecture gets on a heavy-lidded, technoid dancehall tip veering between dreamy and dread feels, while Galactic Tetris comes off like STL tending to a flock of primitive mechanical birds.B-side, Fugu marks the EP’s most messed-up and elusive moments, and the rickety tribalism Hazy One spirals upwards off scooping subs into heady thizz, but the best is kept in the back pocket with a full frontal mentalism called WARWARWAR which sounds exactly as frantic as the title suggests.
Renick Bell - Empty Lake EP
Renick Bell
Empty Lake EP
12" | 2016 | UK | Original (UIQ)
10,79 €* 11,99 € -10%
Release:2016 / UK – Original
Genre:Electronic / Dance
The angular, abstract funk of Renick Bell’s Empty Lake EP for Lee Gamble’s UIQ is perhaps exactly what you might expect from a pioneer of algoraves - a forward-looking union of live coding and rave music that’s currently taking computer boffins out of the studio/bedroom and placing them in real, physical spaces to hear what happens.
