Stefan Vincent - All That's Love Has Been In Vain
Stefan Vincent
All That's Love Has Been In Vain
12" | 2017 | EU | Original (Anagram)
9,99 €*
Release:2017 / EU – Original
Genre:Electronic / Dance
Stefan Vincent brings the heat with his first solo EP for Anagram, titled 'All That's Love Has Been In Vain'. The EP opens with 'She Will Keep An Eye Out On Catastrophe': a stunning modernist take on classically composed ambient music. The title track is a melancholic and building track with a healthy dose of four-to-the-floor power. We continue on the flip side with 'Join Us In The Waves': a percussive and swingy acid workout. The last track on ANAGRAM009 is Vincent's 'Everything I See Returns To You Somehow' and it shows the more electro-oriented side of Stefan Vincent's productions with a subtle wink to 90s IDM. Although his approach regarding this track stands on its own, the same profound atmospheric vibe the rest of the tracks have echoes through this layout as well. It's that same echo that stays with us as one of the highlights of our discography comes to an end. Stefan approached this release as a multidisciplinary composition, in which he explores both his musical talent as well as his talent for visual design and painting. The cover artwork of 'All That's Love Has Been In Vain' was painted by Stefan himself with his music for this release in mind, giving the EP a true Gesamtkunstwerk feeling. This is Anagram number 9, get on it.
Jon Gibson - Two Solo Pieces
Jon Gibson
Two Solo Pieces
LP | 1977 | US | Reissue (Superior Viaduct)
21,99 €*
Release:1977 / US – Reissue
Genre:Electronic / Dance
For his second album, Two Solo Pieces, Jon Gibson forgoes the dense, multi-layered timbres of Visitations in favor of simple textures and tone. While Two Solo Pieces serves up further evidence of Gibson's centrality to American minimalism – witness its inclusion in Alan Licht's famed Minimal Top Ten list – this profoundly intimate record also reveals the beauty of enclosed spaces and infinite harmonic vistas. As its unadorned title suggests, Two Solo Pieces consists of a pair of side-long tracks featuring the composer alone. While "Cycles," an iridescent improvisation on organ, achieves a downright eerie sense of expansiveness, Gibson's captivating alto flute on "Untitled" draws the listener inside the instrument itself. The photo on the album's back cover – a seated Gibson surrounded by cascading rows of organ pipes and the vaulted ceiling in Manhattan's Peace Church – offers a striking visual complement to these gorgeous recordings. Originally released in 1977 on Philip Glass' Chatham Square imprint, this first-time vinyl reissue is recommended for fans of Anthony Moore, Roberto Cacciapaglia and Terry Riley.

Release:2017 / EU – Original
Genre:Electronic / Dance
Next on the cultish Editions Gravats, Low Jack slashes and burns thru a stack of choice french hardtek and dutch/ german gabber selected by his partner in crime, Jean Carval. Dissecting and then stewing the crusty scally sound of late ‘90s continental Europe in its own juices, the results are cooked up into 42 minutes of oblique, pulsating savagery bound to leave bits in your teeth.Swallowing the raver’s spine whole and spitting out the marrow, Nation De La Boueis a severely warped take on an already severe sound, masticating the rotten entrails of classic Cavage and Hangars Liquids-associated acts - UHT, Saoulaterre, Yann Dub, Bambule, No Tek - and transforming them into a disfigured and contorted mind gurn laced with lysergic voices, mutated hyper-rhythms and K-holing trapdoors.If you’ve never heard a 3m tall, 12m wide soundsystem play 200bpm hardcore at 7 in the morning, you basically haven’t lived. However, as that means 99% of folk are effectively just walking dead, this tape offers scant opportunity to actually grasp life by the short and curlies, provided you have the required soundsystem and an abandoned airfield to run amok at daft O’Clock. Although your bedroom and a battered boombox with functioning tape deck will definitely suffice, too.
N1L - Mud Diver
N1L
Mud Diver
12" | 2017 | EU | Original (Where To Now?)
12,99 €*
Release:2017 / EU – Original
Genre:Electronic / Dance
After releasing two 12”s for Lee Gamble’s fledging UIQ label, Latvian artist N1L flits to Where To Now? to present four new compositions of smudged, innovative, and completely otherworldly bass mutation. ‘Mud Diver’ begins with the aptly titled ‘Chasing the Sun’, at first holding all the intentions of aiming for a big room anthem – introducing itself with familiar melodic pads and focused, drop friendly peaks. Anyone who knows N1L’s work though will understand that this settling for a straight forward approach is not his vibe… at drop point the anthemic nature absolutely plummets face first into the grit and accelerates away into layer upon layer of revving synth mayhem, transforming with grace into the complete polar opposite of its initial gambit. Title track ‘Mud Diver’ takes us further down into the realms of machine trouble and its mechanised cyclical movements. Held together by the deepest of off beat kicks, we wade through this horrorscape of construction and collapse in search for light. This light comes in the form of ‘Jaget Och Maskerna’ where swathes of rapid-fire signals weave through the darkness and speed away towards the hopeful bloom, holding an escapist and otherworldly aura, a hallmark of much of N1L’s work. Submerged for 9 minutes ‘Clockroach’ takes us deeper and deeper down into the basin, where dubwise flutters of percussion and sparks from the breaks of rolling dread bubble around the vessel. Recalling the deepest moments of Raime, the tensest moments of Kode 9, and the most desolate moments of Demdike Stare, ‘Clockroach’ best embodies N1L’s ability to respectfully reference a rich history of bass music, whilst injecting his own deeply experimental learnings and leanings at every turn. “Listening to the music of N1L is at times like staring into a vast, bleak expanse where time moves at a different rate to the rest of the world…N1L’s music feels stretched and compressed in equal measure, combining a nostalgic traces of 90s techno, jungle and rave into something that sounds like it’s been torn from another era and warped in the process.” – Scott Wilson (FACT)

Drawing from the sounds of his cultural background, and the daily grind of living in an increasingly loud and hostile capitalist world, the sounds presented here display the deft evolution of an ambitious young beat maker and experimentalist into a poised, focused, and selfless artist who places his emphasis on the emotion and energy of sound and place over the wild self importance of being an "artist".

he Institute of Sonology in Utrecht has earned its international reputation mostly for pioneering work in the field of computer-assisted algorithmic composition and digital sound synthesis by composers such as Gottfried Michael Koenig, Werner Kaegi, Paul Berg and Barry Truax. Anyone familiar with the music of these composers would have to admit that even within this 'genre' there were no stylistic dogmas. The stylistic range of Sonology's artistic output becomes even broader when the work of other staff and frequent guests is taken into account, for example the compositions based on field recordings and audio-visual projects by Frits Weiland, the radiophonic works and pieces for tape and instruments by Luctor Ponse, the cybernetic tape compositions by Roland Kayn, or the experiments with computer graphics by Peter Struycken, to name just a few. And then there was Jaap Vink. Jaap Vink (Den Helder, 1930) studied engineering at first, but then became interested in electronic music. He attended courses in electroacoustics at Delft University of Technology and installed a pedagogical studio for electronic music in 1961 at the Gaudeamus Foundation in Bilthoven with the help of the Nederlandse Radio Unie (NRU). He was a staff member at the Institute of Sonology as a teacher in analogue studio techniques from 1967 until his retirement in 1993.

Release:2017 / UK – Original
Genre:Electronic / Dance
Combining all the traits of an international superhero or intrepid comic book adventurer, the true identity, whereabouts and history of the spectacular Italian composer known as Gerardo Iacoucci has been a mystery to record collectors for many years. As a result of the best efforts of secretive archivists and DJs as well as and the overprotective force field that surrounds the clandestine world of Italian library music, the commanding experimental psychedelic pop music made singlehandedly by this early pioneer of the anti-genre time after time rises to the top of collectors’ want lists, commands huge ransom notes, ignites dancefloors and decimates genre tags before returning to its mythical status as one of the kings of the underworld without removing his mask. Despite the fact that original Italian copies of records by Gerardo Iacoucci are amongst the rarest, enigmatic fixtures of European psychedelia, his music simply refuses to be ghettoised and as the name of this album suggests the history of this artist reads like the memoirs of a genuine musical adventurer as well as a well-travelled prophet of experimental music and unsung pillar of Italian jazz and sound design. Recorded in early 1970, Iacoucci's wide-eyed L'Avventura suite spanned 6 sides of loud, heavyweight monophonic vinyl for Romano Di Bari's Deneb label and created an epically detailed blueprint for independent mood music companies whilst sharing release schedules with likeminded workaholics Alessandro Alessandroni and A. R. Luciani. However, Gerardo's adventure didn't begin here…

“Muen” is based on the concepts of “muen”, “kugai” and “raku” all referring to tactical “freedoms” or “liberties” within the structures of medieval Japan. A reflection on concepts that have been lost since the seventeenth century, according to historian Yoshihiko Amino. While “Muen” echoes of the seminal early 90s Merzbow, playing on the relationship between metal noise and instrumental oscillations, it differs in interaction between the two. Where the pure noise used to dominate, the instrumentation has taken over, making the whole soundscape oscillate and vibrate. Each side is one long piece unfolding, an ocean of tones and frequencies, a catharsis of sound, dynamics and power. “Muen” is a vitally sonic experience from a true master and innovator of electronic music for followers both new and old. “Muen” is limited to 375 copies.

Genre:Electronic / Dance
For ages nighttime was said to be the time of ghosts and spirits. Creatures of the night were believed to gain special powers between midnight and dawn. In latin this shrouded in mystery lapse of time was called "intempesta" - time without time.Detlef Weinrich, alias Toulouse Low Trax, too, seems to have lingered in the irrational universe of frozen continuity quite frequently within the last two years. Everyone who drifts to the sound of his first solo album "Mask Talk" will soon sense the musical intensity boding a different dancefloor.Cool, atmospheric new-wave-sharpness, and a cushioned beat rate between 107 and 116 bpm call out a mechanical functionality that doesn't bow to any contemporary doctrine. "Mask Talk": urban music, club album. Big city lights in Africa. Chilly neon-sounds made in Dusseldorf.As a member of Kreidler, Weinrich just recently participated in the trio's newly found cosmic vibes, as well as in their album "Mosaik 2014". Now, with his solo project, he is demonstrating that a MPC and a small synthesizer-ensemble are enough to bring alive futuristic dance music in the here and now.Bedroom-recorded under tense creative circumstances, the ten tracks invoke, mostly instrumentally, an eerie atmosphere that would fit in perfectly with an early John Carpenter movie. The tracks' volume sounds as if a whole band had been at work in Weinrichs own four walls. With plenty delay on the bass figures, compact analogue effects, percussive dabs and a rough blend of layers, Weinrich has, without any digital support, created quivering drum machine music, whose dancability he was able to test regularly as a resident DJ and co-owner of the Dusseldof-based club/ bar "Salon Des Amateurs". His new tracks breathe the hypnotic power of his DJ sets, where he arranges diverse rhythms between krautrock, cosmic, electronic and acid. They also remind of analogue-electronical pioneers such as Cluster or Peter Baumann. Also 1980s avant-gardists Cabaret Voltaire or Zazou Bikaye have left their mark, without Toulouse Low Trax explicitely referring to them.All tracks are committed to experiment. They leave room for every sound without neglecting rhythmical clarity. A dark, urban solanum, full of reverb, whose melodies are never prankish, but whose minimal nonchalance is sure to help not only the dark creatures through the night. "Form is essence brought to the surface" Victor Hugo wrote 150 years ago. "Mask Talk" is reasserting this theory as a destillate of an operating procedure seeking to subvert ingrained listening habits and to resharpen the contours of the audible. Electronic music beyond any categorisation, whose sounds and rhythmics grow to an emotional atmosphere that far exceeds the immediately hearable.

Unseen Forces
LP | 2017 | US | Original (Kranky)
21,99 €*
Release:2017 / US – Original
Genre:Electronic / Dance
Michigan trumpeter Justin Walter’s solo work centers on evocative, intuitive explorations of the EVI (Electronic Valve Instrument), a rare wind-controlled analog synthesizer from the 1970s. Its unique, smeared tonality allows for an expressive range of glassy, jazz-like textures, which Walter loops and layers with hushed electronics and twilit trumpet, painting opaque landscapes of resonant beauty. Walter’s 2013 debut, Lullabies & Nightmares, included a handful of collaborations with percussionist Quin Kirchner, but Unseen Forces finds him fully solo, refining the project to its essence: shape-shifting watercolors of pastel haze, lit by the soft synthetic glow of electric breath. It’s a sound both modern and timeless, fusing emotion and technology, gauze and melody, force and fragility.

Genre:Electronic / Dance
New LP from Gigi Masin, Jonny Nash and Young Marco. Highly Recommended!In the spring of 2016, Gigi Masin, Jonny Nash and Marco Sterk got together in the studio for the first time since they recorded Clouds, the critically acclaimed debut album from their Gaussian Curve project.By the time they reconvened in Sterk’s new studio in Amsterdam, a stone’s throw away from the temporary, second-­?floor space where they recorded Clouds, much had changed. When they first got together in March 2014, it was for a spontaneous, weekend-­?long exploration of shared musical passions. They were merely three new friends expressing themselves, and having huge amounts of fun in the process.By the time they got together again last year, the album they recorded on that famous weekend had taken on a life of its’ own. To their surprise and delight, Clouds had become one of the most admired ambient albums of the 21st century.They’d initially reconvened in the studio to rehearse for their first live performances. It soon become clear that all three members were brimming with ideas for new Gaussian Curve material. Over the four days that followed, and fuelled by the same spontaneous working method that drove Clouds, a new album began to take shape. Although their methodology remained the same, the inspirations were different. Whereas Clouds was intimate by design, The Distance reflects more on spaciousness, distance and time. It is instantly recognizable as a Gaussian Curve record, but feels different in scope and tone. The Distance is a different musical beast to its’ predecessor, but shares the same timeless, emotion-­?rich feel that made Clouds such a hit. While the fundamental ingredients remain the same – Masin’s masterly piano and synthesizer work, Nash’s blissful, meandering guitar
Toby Driver of Kayo Dot - Madonnawhore
Toby Driver of Kayo Dot
Madonnawhore
LP | 2017 | US | Original (Flenser)
21,99 €*
Release:2017 / US – Original
Genre:Electronic / Dance
On the heels of Kayo Dot’s 2016 album Plastic House On Base Of Sky, New York City based avant-garde musician Toby Driver sustains his inexhaustible output with a solo album titled Madonnawhore. After exploring a retro-futurist noir sound on Kayo Dot’s 2014 album Coffins On Io then delving even further into electronic music with his aforementioned last album, Driver was eager to write a different kind of song. Madonnawhore represents a foray into traditional songwriting, stripped of the progressive flourishes and unpredictability of Driver’s band. These six austere tracks are sparse and atmospheric, evoking empty spaces and the beauty sometimes inherent in death. They occupy a heretofore unexplored place in Driver’s oeuvre, and were recorded primarily as a solo effort but share some lyrical contributions from Jason Byron, who also writes for Kayo Dot. Although not a concept album, Madonnawhore is united by its exploration of the “madonna-whore complex,” a psychological neurosis first identified by Sigmund Freud whereby a man feels he can only love a woman who maintains a saint-like purity, but desires to be intimate with someone he considers to be debased. This sacred/profane dichotomy has far reaching effects that are seemingly inescapable in modern society and ripe for examination.

Release:2017 / EU – Original
Genre:Electronic / Dance
Future music duo Second Woman's sophomore full-length for Spectrum Spools further hones their distinctive fusion of shapeshifting software sculpture and tessellated footwork. Shivering digital textures oscillate with and against algorithmically mapped percussion samples; smeared synthetic chords levitate in the distance; stabs of digital noise punctuate the mix in twitchy, time-distorting patterns. Their anamorphosis verges on ascetic: stark, splintered waveforms rendered into unique fiber optic hieroglyphs.Multi-instrumentalists Josh Eustis and Turk Dietrich share a deep history going back to their days in the New Orleans ambient electronic community, as part of Telefon Tel Aviv and Belong, respectively. Even so, S/W pushes beyond their combined discographies to date, flexing impossibilities, building rhythms from arrhythmia, teasing veiled emotion from bold iterations of cold code.

Cluster boten live eine Art Performancekunst, die wesentlich aus Improvisation, Krach, bewussterVermeidung von rhythmisch-harmonischen Strukturen und dem zügellosen Einsatz elektronischerKlangerzeuger bestand. Dazu kamen Auftrittsdauern von bis zu sechs Stunden, in denen Künstler undPublikum nicht selten in rauschhafte Zustände gerieten. Clusters Musik war anfänglich roh, brutal, spontanund wurde mit einfachstem Equipment - keine Synthesizer, keine Sequencer, keine High-End-Verstärker -erzeugt. Hans-Joachim Roedelius und Dieter Moebius ließen keine mechanischen Prozesse ablaufen. Siebenutzten ihre Maschinen, aber verließen sich nicht auf sie. Vielmehr setzten sie auf Intuition. DasExperiment glückte nicht immer, aber oft. Dann spürte man tatsächlich so etwas wie Magie und hörte dasEntstehen einer utopischen Klangwelt. Die zwei von Moebius und Roedelius autorisierten Mitschnitte diesesAlbums geben eindrücklich die Atmosphäre und die Magie eines Cluster-Auftritts wieder. Der eine fand 1977während eines Science-Fiction-Festivals in Metz statt, der andere entstand im Januar 1972 bei einem Auftrittin der Hamburger Fabrik.

Travelogue is the first album by 26-year-old Portland composer Derek Hunter Wilson. By turns harrowing, poignant, and restrained, it is remarkably accomplished for a debut. Centered around Derek's masterful piano playing, Travelogue also features accompaniment on violin by resident Beacon Sounder Peter Broderick as well as field recordings, cello, harp, and synthesizers. One of the most interesting musical conversations happening today is in the dynamic area where modern composition and and experimental/ambient music overlap. This collection of songs adds to that conversation alongside recent work by Julia Kent, Max Richter, and Jóhann Jóhannsson while retaining its own sense of style and place. Embedded in the rainy ethos of contemporary Cascadia, listening to Travelogue brings to mind watching the cranes work through a water streaked window.

It’s been four years since Robedoor released their previous LP on Hands in the Dark, Primal Sphere, but this spring Britt and Alex Brown return with a new odyssey of chaos and psychosis: New Age Sewage. Written and recorded across multiple seismic life events (moves, births, deaths), the album is centered on heavy visions of negative west coast mythology. Themes of poison, hallucination, conspiracy, and false messiahs weave within their sinkholes of mystic sludge.The duo’s music has grown darker, denser, and more visceral with each album. There’s a sense of practiced ritual, of deepening meditation, portals opening against their will. New Age Sewage documents half a decade of the band’s hermetic focus, shaped by instinct, will, and apocalyptic realities.

Floating Points began as the solo project of Sam Shepherd before it became clear the immersive, intricate nature of his music demanded expansion. Following his critically acclaimed debut Elaenia this is exactly what happened and Floating Points live became a band of incredibly talented musicians with Sam at the helm. Now, Floating Points has announced a new short film and soundtrack, featuring entirely new and unheard compositions - Reflections - Mojave Desert via Pluto on 30 June. The film, in collaboration with director Anna Diaz Ortuño, finds the ensemble in a thrilling sonic exploration of environment under an endless desert sky.“Whilst we were out playing and exploring the area around us - the sound reflecting from the rocks, the sound of the wind between them, complete stillness at night and packs of roaming coyotes in the distance, it became apparent that we could use this as its own unique recording environment.” - Sam Shepherd, Floating PointsThe first in a planned series of environmental recordings by Floating Points to be filmed and recorded at different locations around the world; the recording was made last year, as Floating Points travelled to the Mojave to rehearse in between US touring. Immediately struck by the distinct sonic tapestry created by the rock formations and valleys, Sam and the band set up a recording operation and filmed this new work at the base of the natural sculptures they encountered. The music of Reflections - Mojave Desert mirrors the landscape: soaring and vast, dynamic and intimate, centred around two longer works and shorter pieces that create a singular and seamless experience.Reflections - Mojave Desert begins with chords played on a Rhodes Chroma and recorded with a surround sound microphone. Throughout the filming, microphones were placed throughout the landscape to capture the natural sonic textures of the desert: the undulating sound of wind, a bird call, the rustling of bushes and more created a backdrop on which much of the record rests. The music softly shifts from the Fender Rhodes introduction to ‘Silurian Blue’, an expansive full band piece that balances refined restraint with explosiveness. In one scene, ‘Kites’, Sam Shepherd walks through a valley with a super directional microphone, swinging it back and forth as a synthesiser loop gets faster to showcase the natural reverb and shifting phase of sound waves. ‘Kelso Dunes’ signals the film’s final act: the sky grows dark, lasers flash, the band and rocks gleaming in the pitch black around them.One of London’s most sought-after DJs, producers and live entities, Floating Points has toured with The xx - supporting their record breaking string of dates at Brixton Academy, collaborated with Caribou, Four Tet, and has performed across the globe including festivals like Glastonbury, Primavera, and Pitchfork Festival Europe. Floating Points’ debut LP Elaenia was deemed Resident Advisor’s ‘Album of the Year’ as well as Mojo’s ‘Electronic Album of the Year’ in 2015. This was followed by the Kuiper EP in 2016. Sam also hosts the internationally renowned You’re A Melody DJ parties and co-runs the Melodies International reissues label.

Mit dem dritten und letzten Teil der "Haul & Pull Up"-EP-Reihe vollenden die Münchener Bass-Freunde vonSchlachthofbronx ihre Trilogie mit hybriden Clubtracks, die von hypnotisch-gefühlvollen Melodien bis hin zuultimativen Dancefloor-Hooks so ziemlich alles zwischen Techno, Dancehall, Dub und Breakbeats am Starthaben, was den Ravern von heute und morgen ein freudiges Lächeln ins Gesicht zaubert. Und das mitGarantie, denn alle vier Tracks wurden im Vorwege der Veröffentlichung schon ausgiebig von großenSoundsystems im Beisein einer gierigen Feiermeute auf Herz und Nieren getestet. Dem Vernehmen nach mitdurchschlagendem Erfolg! Wie auch schon bei den zwei vorherigen EPs sind mit dem langjährigenKollaborationspartner Doubla J aus Costa Rica sowie Miami-Legende Otto Von Schirach prominenteGaststars an Bord. Die Platte erscheint als limitierte 12" mit Vollfarbcover und Banderole.
