Mark Fell, Rashad Becker & Sote - Parallel Persia Remixes
Mark Fell, Rashad Becker & Sote
Parallel Persia Remixes
12" | 2020 | EU | Original (Diagonal)
11,89 €* 16,99 € -30%
Release:2020 / EU – Original
Genre:Electronic / Dance
Cutting edge innovators Rashad Becker and Mark Fell re-work material from Sote’s extraordinary ‘Parallel Persia’ album alongside a killer non-album track by Ata Ebtekar aka Sote himself. Highly recommended if yr into the complex tunings and arrhythmic geometry of Dariush Dolat-Shahi, Autechre, Xenakis. Last year’s ‘Paralell Persia’ album took the trajectory of his preceding ‘Hardcore Sounds From Tehran’ (2016) and ‘Sacred Horror In Design’ (2017) to thrilling new heights for Diagonal. Turning traditional instrumental music inside-out with computers and modular synths, he arrived at a thrilling mix of sound that stood out as one of the year’s most original and striking releases.
Russell Haswell - 37 Minute Workout Volume 2
Russell Haswell
37 Minute Workout Volume 2
LP | 2019 | EU | Original (Diagonal)
18,99 €* 19,99 € -5%
Release:2019 / EU – Original
Genre:Electronic / Dance
N0!zy blighter Russell Haswell returns to Diagonal 5 years after his label debut with a spontaneously combusting follow-up to ’37 Minute Workout’ generated again from a mix of analog/digital synths and modular systems edited on a computer. It was inspired by a visit to CERN, The European Organisation for Nuclear Research, in Geneva; and dinner with Ted Nelson, whose theories of interwingularity and transclusion chimed with the direction recordings took.
Viviankrist - Cross Modulation
Viviankrist
Cross Modulation
LP | 2019 | EU | Original (Diagonal)
24,99 €*
Release:2019 / EU – Original
Genre:Electronic / Dance
Japanese crustpunk and grindcore icon Eri Fuzz-Kristiansen, aka Gallhammer’s Viviankrist, keeps the curveballs coming on Diagonal with a bloodied mastication of charred noise and and rhythmic electronics, following up the label’s acclaimed sides by Sote and Not Waving/Jim O’Rourke. Co-released with the metal-minded Ritual Productions label, ‘Cross-Modulation’ is a brutal testament to the acridly personalised sound that Viviankrist has explored solo since 1995 in Tokyo, when she performing vocals, sax and SP-202 sampler in her first industrial/noise unit. 23 years later her music is still sorely raw, yet riddled with a new found poignance and atmospheric unease that places her music sometimes as close to Kali Malone’s see-sawing dissonance as the power electronics of Pan Sonic or the possessed pulses of Conrad Schnitzler and Merzbow.
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.
Handy - Smacker EP
Handy
Smacker EP
10" | 2018 | EU | Original (Diagonal)
14,99 €*
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
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
Russell Haswell
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
Koehler / Stabudown Productions (Prostitutes)
Jim V Dan
12" | 2017 | EU | Original (Diagonal)
14,99 €*
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.
Evol - Right Frankfurt
Evol
Right Frankfurt
12" | 2016 | UK | Original (Diagonal)
9,74 €* 12,99 € -25%
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.
Prostitutes - Ecstasy, Crashing Beats and Fantasy
Prostitutes
Ecstasy, Crashing Beats and Fantasy
12" | 2014 | UK | Original (Diagonal)
10,99 €*
Release:2014 / UK – Original
Genre:Electronic / Dance
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.
Streetwalker - Ooze Silent Servant Remix
Streetwalker
Ooze Silent Servant Remix
12" | 2014 | UK | Original (Diagonal)
9,34 €* 10,99 € -15%
Release:2014 / UK – Original
Genre:Electronic / Dance
Diagonal Records drop a slow-burning, psychedelic killer from Elon Katz and Beau Wanzer's Streetwalker, backed with a powerful Silent Servant remix. First issued on Catholic Tapes cassette in 2011, the serpentine, twelve minute acid slink of 'Ooze' has been remastered for vinyl and primed for the dance. By contrast Silent Servant's remix is far more collected and stoic, a head high, hip-thrusting EBM destroyer laced with lysergic glimpses of the original and benefitting from a super-loud cut at 45rpm.
