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.

the music ben frost is about contrast: influenced as much by classical minimalism as by punk rock and metal, frost s throbbing guitar-based textures emerge from nothing and slowly coalesce into huge, forbidding forms that often eschew conventional structures in favor of the inevitable unfoldings of vast mechanical systems. three years from the release of his acclaimed theory of machines, frost has returned with his secondfull-length for bedroom community, by the throat where theory of machines came sterilized influorescent light, by the throat is blood red and cloaked in shadow. produced in iceland by ben frost and valgeir sigursson, by the throat also features performances by amiina, the arcade fire s jeremy gara, swedish metal outfit crowpath and composer nico muhly.
