Eat Lights Become Lights
Nature Reserve
LP | 2017 | UK | Original (Deep Distance)
13,99 €*
Release:2017 / UK – Original
Genre:Rock / Indie
The fiftieth release on Deep Distance sees the welcome return of London’s kosmische / kraut maestros EAT LIGHTS BECOME LIGHTS with their first studio recordings for three years.Recorded in Berlin, London, Spain and Portugal, “Nature Reserve” is an incredible return- a beautiful LP, featuring on one hand the bands’ trademark heavy motorik workouts alongside a more pastoral set of blissful, deep space lullabies. Kicking off with the title track, it’s instantly recognisable to longterm ELBL devotees that the devastating twinned drummer attack of live shows (only, previously) make their recording debut here- and it’s debatable whether the band have ever sounded so powerful than the opener here. To these ears at least, the beauty of this record is that the incendiary power of the freakouts is equally matched and aided to by the most beautiful, serene soundscapes of tracks like “A Distant Point of Light” and “The Great Up Above” which recall “Laser Guided Melodies” era Spiritualized, achieving a killer balance of power and bliss. The band have shared the stage with the likes of Moon Duo, Sonic Boom, Warm Digits, The Silver Apples, The Early Years not to mention several stints acting as Damo Suzuki’s backing band. A great record which should draw in interested newcomers as well as more than pleasing ELBL’s older heads, the LP has a one time pressing of 500 on pink vinyl and like both the artist and labels’ output previously it is expected to sell out rapidly.
Slows - A Great Big Smile From Venus
A Great Big Smile From Venus
LP | 2018 | UK | Original (Deep Distance)
12,99 €*
Release:2018 / UK – Original
Genre:Rock / Indie
Limited to 300 copies. “The past two years has seen Matthew Simms (multi-instrumentalist & producer; Wire, It Hugs Back, Bill Fay, Uuuu, Chastity Belt) release two LP’s of looping transcendental, instrumental music on London’s great Deep Distance label, and perform shows in the UK and USA, including opening dates with Tortoise, Juliana Barwick & Michael Rother of Neu! While the first LP focused on solely on the sound of his beloved old Farfisa Organ; evoking the minimalism of Terry Riley and JD Emmanuel and the 2nd his growing obsession with modular synth put through a chain of old tape delays and reverb, resulting in a more hazy Krautrock feel, akin to that of Cluster or NEU! On this third LP it’s all changed again, with the tracks growing out of the drum recordings of Matt Schultz (HOLY FUCK, ENON, LAKE RUTH). Having Matt’s drums to kick things off, this record turned into something much noisier and varied than the previous release; still repetitive and minimal but with more sense of wild abandon and embracing a free-jazz influence, like that heard within the sound of the Sun Ra Arkestra”. SLOWS is a project started by accident that has grown into a fantastic place for Matthew Simms to experiment, collaborate and follow his ideas, regardless of boundaries and not tied by anything or anyone. Where next...?
Jonas Reinhardt - Conclave Surge
Jonas Reinhardt
Conclave Surge
LP | 2018 | UK | Original (Deep Distance)
10,19 €* 11,99 € -15%
Release:2018 / UK – Original
Genre:Electronic / Dance
Following hugely acclaimed releases for labels such as Kranky, Constellation Tatsu, Not Not Fun and Great Pop Supplement, Jesse Reiner’s esteemed JONAS REINHARDT return to the fray with the mighty “Conclave Surge” LP.The eight tracks contained within open the listener to a new dimension to the Reinhardt oeuvre; expanding deeply on the sonic themes explored in previous albums with a sense of immersive, meditative intent. The sharp sound design of minimal techno, early industrial music’s capacity for dramatic shock and awe and the fervent rhythmic experimentation of West African synthesists all weaved their way into Reiner’s palette for Conclave Surge.Inspired in equal measure by the throbbing urbanity of coastal cities, continental European art-rock experimentation, and improvised electronic minimalism, Jonas Reinhardt’s music transcends its influences into a wholly unique amalgam.As Jesse himself says “'The latin origin of ‘Conclave’ translates to with key. The pieces of music selected for this album are designed to unlock, by way of machine and human synthesis, ritual and musical ceremony previously hidden from public view. The Conclave ceremony, traditionally designed to introduce something important, is a tool of power and of powerful groups. 'Surge' here refers to electric discharge arcing across a room, crackling gear, and skittering currents sourcing ground”.Another wonderful Jonas Reinhardt record released as a limited edition pressing of 300 on vinyl.
Panabrite - Transfer
LP | 2016 | UK | Original (Deep Distance)
15,99 €*
Release:2016 / UK – Original
Genre:Rock / Indie
The ten track LP is released mid May and has been planned for what seems an eternity since it was granted a Deep Distance catalogue number two years ago. But to say the wait was worthwhile is understated here, this is an incredible set. It features four tracks from two long out of print 2014 cassette only releases; all of which are firm favourites with fans who have bugged Norm to commit to vinyl upon release two years ago. Emerging from a love of early electronic, concrete and tape music, soundtracks and early new age, Panabrite attempts to create worlds of sound that touch on many elements and moods, from more spatially motivated ambient to aspects of cosmic synth, minimalist composition and improvisation. Limited to 300 copies.

Pharoah Chromum - Chromosphere
Pharoah Chromum
LP | 2015 | UK | Original (Deep Distance)
15,99 €*
Release:2015 / UK – Original
Genre:Rock / Indie
Named after a track off Chrome’s epic “Alien Soundtracks” LP, PHAROAH CHROMIUM is the brainchild of Berlin based, German / Palestinian Ghazi Barakat. The project draws upon influences as diverse as “free jazz, rituals from ancient past and near future, the dream syndicate, science fiction, novels and neo-brutalistic architecture”. Recommended to the label by Tim Gane, this record draws especially upon -and focuses on- the Berlin School; (a key influence on the formation of the label in the first place). “Chromosphere” features 2 side long pieces heavy on Schnitzler influence with nods to the work of Kluster, “Electronic Meditation” era Tangerine Dream and some of the more extreme elements to Chris Carter's work with and outside Throbbing Gristle. Hugely recommended to fans of Schnitzler’s four legendary single colour sleeved and titled series of gallery edition / private press LPs from ‘73 to ‘84.Of a previous release (“Electric Cremation”) Julian Cope was sufficiently moved to say “Epic in scope and always radically novel in sound FX and their execution, ignore this lavish package at your peril, mes dames et mes motherfuckers…” !?!“Chromosphere” is packaged as equally lavishly, presented as a hand numbered pressing of 300 beautiful, suitably whacked out Picture Disc LPs. Be warned, this will go quick…..
Xam - Tone Systems
Tone Systems
12" | 2015 | UK | Original (Deep Distance)
11,99 €*
Release:2015 / UK – Original
Genre:Rock / Indie
The mighty debut outing from Matthew Benn's new Hookworms side project XAM! This is a killer record merging both the artist and labels' love for the more electronic/kosmische side to the kraut groove à la Sky and Klaus Schulze's Innovative Communication (IC) labels, with equal tips of the hat to the DIY minimal synth scene of the late '70s, early '80s. You get three extraordinary, slow building pieces, often trancelike and hypnotic and always utterly captivating. Edition of 500 copies.
Karen Novotny X - 3 Minutes Over Brussels Playable Postcard
Karen Novotny X
3 Minutes Over Brussels Playable Postcard
7" | 2014 | UK | Original (Deep Distance)
9,99 €*
Release:2014 / UK – Original
Genre:Rock / Indie
The second of Augusts' trio of new Deep Distance releases is most definitely a gift from the gods to yr record collecting fraternity. A playable picture postcard from East London's favourite shady, mysterious synth heads' Karen Novotny X.Arriving a couple of years ago completely outta' the blue with their previously discarded synth experiments recorded in East London between 1978 and '79 (with debts of gratitude to Chris Carter and Suicide amongst others), the vinyl only collection sold out it's run of 500 in the blink of an eye on Deep Distance' parent label The Great Pop Supplement.Airing here also for a first time is the wonderful "3 Minutes over Brussels". A killer instrumental piece displayed to the world via a playable picture postcard featuring more of KN X's acclaimed collage work in a sealed stickered pack with insert in a pressing of 500.Sadly, given the nature of the format, the full audio experience is somewhat flawed but fans of the band are thankfully pointed to the bands' bandcamp page to fully appreciate the piece.Unsurprisingly given the shadowy nature of the groop, the band actually embrace the ultra lo-fi aspect and quirkiness of it's playback quality which I guess should come as no surprise to fans….Looks utterly gorgeous and will no doubt fly, but from a label's point of view, do check out the bandcamp link- the track really is killer and amongst the best things they've done but the sound quality on the card itself isn't the best….
Hinterhof / Play For Today - Split
Hinterhof / Play For Today
7" | 2014 | UK | Original (Deep Distance)
7,99 €*
Release:2014 / UK – Original
Genre:Rock / Indie
A split 45, airing debuts from Berlin’s Hinterhof and the shadowy world of Camberwell based synth dabblers Play For Today.Hinterhof don the white Lab coats for the icy sci-fi pop blast of “Molecular Love with a Molecular Sound”. All bubbling moogs and buzzing electronics topped with the cool vocals of Lollie Barr. If the reverse might be described as a kind of uptempo space age pop, Play for Today brings things down a few shades with the colder, more industrial synth tone and drone of “Golden Kids (What’s Going On?)”. Think darker Fad Gadget, early Cabs- a more angular, darker piece more in keeping with an early Mute 45 than it’s double A side here- yet it’s that dark and light aspect that makes the single such a winner. As ever with Deep Distance it arrives handsomely packaged, orange wax in cool company bags and inserts. A pressing of 500 expected to sell out pretty quickly….
Eat Lights Become Lights / Twelve - Split 12
Eat Lights Become Lights / Twelve
Split 12"
12" | 2013 | UK | Original (Deep Distance)
9,34 €* 10,99 € -15%
Release:2013 / UK – Original
Genre:Rock / Indie
An ace 12" on tasty clear wax on the Great Pop Supplement sublabel Deep Distance featuring 3 epic kraut flavoured electronic pieces from London's Eat Lights Become Lights backed with Nottingham's Chris Olley, previously of Six by Seven whose new "Twelve" project debuts on wax here. Preceding the fabulous new full length due early July 2013, Eat Lights offer up something of a curve ball here- a real departure to their trademark incessant building motorik groove. "Habitat 67" instead features a more organic, wonderfully slow building, evolving electronic piece- drop dead gorgeous with peaks bordering on the euphoric in places. 9 epic minutes perfectly at home on 12" vinyl here. Not only veering substantially from the acclaimed Neu! like groove familiar to longterm fans but acting perfectly as an appetite wetter to the great, imminent "Modular Living" LP. The flip as mentioned earlier features a debut outing for Chris Olley, whose new "Twelve" project has gone down great at recent Klub Motorik shows and his tracks here supplement ELBL's A side perfectly. 2 pulsing, evolving electronic pieces in a driving, kraut vein and again, just killer stuff, rounding up an amazing record. Dressed up in tasty new Deep Distance company bags, this one is an absolute must and like everything else on the label it is expected to sell out quickly.
