ltd copies. screen printed sleeve by al white & house of traps. this marks the first new vinyl release from echospace detroit this year with all the content lovingly re-mastered in echospace. detroit. usa & cut @ deepgrooves. an unreleased classic from the vaults emerges with newly remastered content from radius s celebrated -obsolete machines- double album & two of the most epic creations featured on the -interpolation tapes- cd series. available for the first time ever on vinyl format. many of the songs featured in this project were initially sent to rod modell & mike schommer shortly after they launched their brilliant deepchord label in 2001. (recorded from 1993-2000) they were incredibly kind in saying it was the best demo they had ever heard and passed it on to octal records for release. sadly. that didn t materialize and since then these masters have been collecting dust in our cassette rack for nearly 20 years now. we ve spent months doing our best to restore the old tapes from our tascam 688. an 8 track cassette recorder purchased and abused since 1992 and to our ears still sounds quite impressive even by modern standards. we ve had nearly every component replaced and re-calibrated to bring this obsolete machine back to life. it s been a truly nostalgic experience re-visiting and redesigning these masters. we truly hope you enjoy reliving these magical times of music. very inspired by all that was happening in those years. there was just something in the air. an undeniable energy. long may it live on..

queeste emerges with the nocturnal sounds of haron s wandelaar. an album exploring his long-term interest in music s talent for inducing and affecting dreams. successfully turning listening into an act of transport. leaving you in the midst of falling asleep. at a junction of dislocation. hazily arriving in a liminal world. in wandelaar we hear haron s playful reaction against the confines of dance music. gathering energy from his estrangement from the scene and using it as a means to reorder and interrogate sound. the modest piano takes centre stage. allowing each solo note to becoming fertile and full. suspended and considered. guided by the principles of minimal composers such as john cage and ryuichi sakamoto. haron delicately translates sparse chords into a cinematic narrative of ascension. conjuring up a moony landscape. grey and desolate from afar. intricately detailed on approach. haron s wandelaar is available 6 july 2018 on lp. the vinyl release includes an art print by fallon does. who is also responsible for the graphic design of wandelaar. all tracks written and produced by haron aumaj. mastered by wouter for brandenburg mastering. words by jo kali.

mystery. poetry. a play of masks: artistic creation according to john cravache. his collaboration with versatile dates back to the beginning of the millennium. a childhood friend of i:cube. he is 44 years old. lives in a paris suburb. and is not a professional artist. getting involved in writing. he has been boasting his artistic and economic independence and his crafty attitude outside of the industrial system. he gave himself time to invent a personal world. wild and funny. which eventually gave birth to the album -cités nomades-. even though his influences are quite varied and avant-garde (magma. captain beefheart. tom waits). they did not really affect this unclassifiable project. poetry and mystery come before all. because john cravache is appearing masked. john cravache and nicolas chaix (i:cube) have recorded radio creations since the early 90s. in particular for chimère fm in paris. as well as numerous long improvised music sessions. at the approach of the millennium. they embarked on the creation of an album that was not completed until sixteen (!) years later. john is a poet. accomplished pianist. and registered truck driver and nicolas. a self-taught musician. have both made the realisation of -cités nomades- possible. this is not an ironic pop album. this album is simply all you want. listening will do you much good

paper tree sneaked out into the world for a moment a few years back and then vanished. lee burridge loved the track so much that he continued to harass rebelski. sometimes standing outside his window in the flower bed. for weeks on end until he finally agreed to let lee release it on all day i dream. not content with a single track lee went back to rebelskis garden and tapped on the window repeatedly until he agreed to make some more beautiful tracks. obviously pestering producers in this manner bares fruit. the paper tree ep ranges from a beautiful solitary solo piano piece that wouldn t be amiss in a british period piece drama where someone dies unexpectedly leaving the survivors to deal with it. all the while maintaining their stiff upper lip. fly the kite made us want to go outside and do just that. so we did. it was epic. circles and squares joins paper tree as one of those dance floor moments best experienced with ones eyes closed. myriad is the sound of a young lady robots jewelry box (yes. we predict robots will be wearing jewelry in the future) that she(bot) pines to hear when she s all grown up and rusty. omoshiroi is. well. its just so damn pretty. good work rebelski. good work.
fünf jahre nach dem hochgelobten debütalbum -drone logic- wird der in london ansässige produzent daniel avery sein zweites album -song for alpha- via phantasy veröffentlichen. der neue longplayer ist die weiterentwicklung des klanglichen vokabulars von daniel avery. die ideen zu den tracks sind meist unterwegs entstanden: zwischen clubnächten und endlosen flügen. zwischen stundenlanger autofahrten und unzähligen nächten im hotel. die 14 tracks auf -song for alpha- sind ein bravouröser handschlag zwischen dröhnenden klängen. die ganze tanzflächen füllen können und leisen tönen für ruhigere augenblicke. ambient-momente stehen gekonnt den hypnotisch-schweren technobeats gegenüber

alex paterson’s longstanding electronic titans the orb present the new album ‘no sounds are out of bounds’. which as the title suggests finds them embracing an anything-goes new approach to creative freedom. refreshing and reinventing the predominantly two-man set up with thomas fehlmann on the prior two albums (‘moonbuilding 2703 ad’ and ‘cow / chill out world!’). ‘no sounds…’ is intentionally an ensemble piece. featuring a large cast of big names. cult heroes. rising talent and fresh newcomers. alex paterson. thomas fehlmann. youth. roger eno. hollie cook and guy pratt take star turns. as does heroic bassist jah wobble. who returns to the fold following the bassbin-bullying anthem ‘blue room’. additional supporting roles come from gaudi. roney fm and michael rendall. plus vocalists brother culture. mary pearce. emma gillespie. rianna. and andy cain – who’s best known for voicing mark ernestus and moritz von oswald’s deep house gems ‘i’m your brother’ and ‘a new day’. the double vinyl release includesd a download code.
albrecht la brooy s analogue attic imprint returns this may with a solo project from one half of the duo. alex albrecht. under his newly formed melquiades guise... the past few years have seen albrecht la brooy steadily hone their unique spin on house & techno via self-released gems & acclaimed projects on night tide. voyage records and butter sessions. culminating with the release of their debut long player tidal river on apollo/r&s earlier this year . this solo material from alex s new alias (soon to be debuted on scissor & thread) takes a more dancefloor orientated approach. the material recorded live. retaining an improvised feel and managing to capture the surreal and mysterious atmosphere of the australian bush. combining atmospheric field recordings. jazz tinged double bass-licks and bright piano elements. all woven together with the label s trademark intricately programmed rhythms. the bluff ep is an engaging. mesmerising and addictive addition to the label s already well-loved output...
niemand auf diesem planeten klingt wie aisha devi. die mit “dna feelings” ihr zweites album für houndstooth mit 11 neuen. hypnotischen. digitalen mantras vorlegt. devi setzt für produktion und performance meditative techniken ein. ihre musik ist spirituell. ihre dj-sets - nts residenz 2017. mix für fact - metaphysisch. ihre shows - von ctm bis boiler room. von sibirien bis mexiko - transzendente erfahrungen. sie ist rebellin und radikale alchemistin. die ein alternatives club-paradigma erschafft.

after establishing himself with rough but emotive house as rimbaudian and jungle as birds of sweden. he unveiled his dj seinfeld alias to the world. first with underground hit single u. then with his time spent away from u album on lobster fury in november 2017. it was a post break-up love letter to the dance floor with heart-on-sleeve emotions colouring the dusty and analogue house grooves. acclaim came in from far and wide. with everyone from rolling stone to pitchfork fawning over its heart swelling nostalgia and melancholic immediacy. jakobsson approached his dj-kicks with the intention of representing all the things that made him fall in love with dance music more than a decade ago. as well as showing some of the progression that has occurred in that time and reflecting the simultaneous fear of leaving something safe behind as well as the excitement of venturing into unknown territories. musically and emotionally.
as non state’s inaugural release. the lake ep by jarvus is a textural exploration into unknown realms. with each passing movement painting imagery of coarse landscapes. from the rolling. insomniac daze of “rock pools”. filled with warm. bouncing bass sequences and synth-pad whirlwinds. to the submersible resonance of “lake mist”. projecting feelings of fragility and under-water claustrophobia as tribal-esque rhythms act as a calming mantra.
produced by processing all kinds of expressive sounds through various guitar pedals and using circuit bending or diy instruments. jarvus fuses downtempo-techno into atmospheric. mesmerising movements rather than folding into conventional structures.
zuli’s new offering trigger finger is a game of shadowy atmospheres and unquiet spirits. it functions as a spacial and temporal compactor. using sampling and field recordings to reconstruct reality’s dissonance. while at the same time reverse its own introspective character into bass weight and outworked tension. a kind of extremization of zuli’s own roots as a beatmaker for the cairo rap scene. tinged with the clandestine and delirious urbanism of grime and jungle. and fronted by the necessity to face its own dark side. but the dark and crusty sonic palette does not limit the possibility for the tracks to display various layers of emotional content.
for the third instalment of the plafond series. bakk presents a mind bending record that brings together two contemporary innovators. dont dj and bear bones lay low have both earned their stripes when it comes to heavy trance inducing electronics. on the a side bear bones lay low delivers earthly rhythms in heavenly fashion with a 15 minute piece. dont dj calls upon the spirits with a soothing yet satanic 17 minute narrative on the flip. comes in a hand printed sleeve with spell casting obi strip made by the bakk ancestral archipelago.
an astronomical conjunction has cropped up. arpanet is back after a long interstellar hibernation and 30drop comes up with its particular vision of the abstract elektro for the very first time. “phases ep” takes the primal warp’s heritage blending hypnotic melodies with rhythmically complex patterns. arpanet. which keeps the exquisiteness of its previous works for rephlex. among other labels. gazes into the black profoundness of its own and unique universe. 30drop’s two cuts. ostensibly touched by the aphex twin spirit. are a spellbinding exercise of style. “phases ep” is experimental. atmospheric. rhythmic and. above all. flawless. this enthralling ep is presented in electric blue vinyl. a special shape for a very special alliance.
trux’ second ep on berlin based record label office is a bow to the many outstanding moments in the history of ambient music. allusions to brian eno are just as recognisable as to the charming concepts of pop ambient or clicks & cuts. it’s between these poles that the four tracks on the a-side oscillate and manage to capture the listener with vibrant and diverse soundscapes. the flip side sees trux drop a stunning melodic breakbeat tune besides remixes by workshops premier techno chef lowtec as well as a freestyle electronica version by o$vmv$m. the much loved super quiet tops the record artwork off with another remarkable example of his casual and airy black and white photography.
dauwd returns to technicolour with -theory of colours - versions- ep. a new 4-tracker ep containing remixes/reworks of various singles from his debut album. the ep opens with a piano rework of analogische memories . recoded at his studio in berlin and the result of countless hours work - -it took some time. as i had to learn to play piano- dauwd explains. dauwd also makes up one third of the berlin collective. party and radio show. african acid is the future having previously released on kompakt and ghostly international. ukrainian music producer and leleka label boss vakula provides a remix of macadam therapy . fresh from the release of his well received lp -metaphors- and following on from last years -techno game- released via arma and -cyclicality between procyon and gomeisa- released via dekmantel in 2016. aaitf partner romain azzaro aka rouge mécanique provides two remixes of murmure (one -walking-. the other -running-) - -romain and i returned to the studio where i made much of the album in utrecht in the netherlands. we got to experiment again with many of the wonderful machines they had there. in particular the original roland system 700-.
the latest transmission from emotional response s ever-essential schleissen series takes a trip to the fourth world with jon keliehor on the a side. there s no denying the influence of jon hassell on tracks like opener -serpent in the sky.- but keliehor channels those exotic notions into some truly captivating music that is all his own. from chiming tones to purposeful percussion. his sound is a rich and evocative one. beautifully recorded and artfully composed. on the other side. lord of the isles indulges his ambient side to great effect with no less than seven vignettes of varying moods and energies. all played out through delicately handled synthesisers.
