SEKUNDENSCHLAF (LP)
12" Vinyl UK 17.01.18
sleep-deprived, breakbeat-driven vignettes of unclear authorship, from somewhere west of lake lagoda, near the russia-finland border.sekundenschlaf has significant points of correspondence with contemporary european electronic music, as well as the golden age of (early) jungle and ambient techno. but its response to tradition, and to the zeitgeist, is idiosyncratic to say the least – with an atmosphere and psychogeography rooted in the tranquility and majesty of western russian nature, and the anxiety and distress of the country s post-soviet working class. pastoral calm meets dissonance and unease. the music has a loose, improvised feel, but its arrangements are intricate, its melodies iridescent: cascading arpeggios that stir a sense of optimism and renewal, sighing string-pads that evoke the deepest melancholy. rhythms simultaneously hyped-up and burned-out, collapsing in on themselves as they race to destinations unknown. all bound together with field recordings of eavesdropped conversations, blurred into abstraction, a droning subliminal menace.trust me, you ll be fine

THE WORD AS POWER (2X12 LP)
2x12" Vinyl lp UK 15.07.13
the alias of welsh-born, california-based brian williams, lustmord first emerged as an associate of spk in the early 80s, before embarking on a solo career that has yielded such classics as heresy (1990), the place where the black stars hang (1994) and (with robert rich) stalker (1995). lustmord has also contributed to numerous hollywood films as music and sound designer, and collaborated with the likes of clock dva, chris & cosey, geir jenssen, the melvins, tool, aaron turner, monte cazazza and coils jhon balance. often seen to epitomize dark ambient, it would be more accurate to say that his work simply goes deeper, further, than conventional ambient dares, or is able, to go. half a decade in the making, the word as power is his new studio album and an exploration of ritual music without dogma.

dalhous is the latest collaborative incarnation of marc dall and alex ander, who have previously released on blackest ever black as young hunting. the change of name reflects a new clarity and conviction to their work, and while certain sonic signatures, not to mention certain extra-musical influences (particularly the films of jack bond and jane arden), have carried over from their last project, they are handled here with a newfound sophistication and restraint. mitchell heisman marks the beginning of a new chapter in the precocious duos development, and heralds dalhouss debut album on blackest ever black in 2013.

RAIME EP (2011 REPRESS)
12" Vinyl UK 08.02.11
repress !! blackest ever black is a new london-based label that seeks to re-establish electronic music as a poetic, provocative and emotionally inquisitive force. music by artists, not engineers. its first release is a self-titled ep by raime, a british duo who draw explicit inspiration from the marginal mavericks of early european goth, industrial and synth wave - artists largely omitted from the current master narrative of post-punk history, and who strove to make music at once cerebral and visceral, futuristic and atavistic. well-versed in the language of club music, but rejecting its typically rigid sequencing and arrangements, raime use technology pensively - to convey a sense of crisis, collapse and longing. transporting and disorienting though their work might be, its narratively taut and has no truck whatsoever with the cosmic, its too aggressive and engaged to be called psychedelic.
