LIGHTHOUSE STORIES
12" Vinyl D 11.05.16
modern love very rarely reaches out to artists outside of its immediate surroundings. itís happened just a couple of times in the last 14 years. but thereís something about philippe hallais that compelled the label to ask him if he wanted to do something together. philippe has released music on a bunch of cool labels (l.i.e.s.. the trilogy tapes. delsin. in paradisum). but hearing the first tracks recorded for lighthouse stories. it was obvious philippe was hitting on something new: a kinda weird slow/fast dance music that sounded like a footwork variant sewn up with an exotic production style that was impossible to pin down. these tracks eventually splintered off into different directions. held together by a strong sense of narrative and motion harking back to a teenage obsession with turntablism. detroit electro and ghetto house. and eventually juke and grime. although heís spent the last few years focusing on more industrial dancefloor variants. for lighthouse stories philippe turned to these foundational influences. as well as his love of mixtapes and sound collages full of unfinished ideas. skits and experiments. all things that inform the flow of this new album. lighthouse stories captures a sense of nostalgia well. but is also a futuristic vision full of that exploratory. vibrant spirit thatís so hard to find in electronic music these days. frames of reference are hard. but in places it reminds us of the dusted swagger of anthony shake shakir. the acquatic drexciyan movements of ultradyne. a loose-limbed take on shangaan. and of actress at his most submerged. but ultimately. itís an album made by a producer looking to his personal history while forging new ground. pushing ahead with little regard to convention and ultimately ending up with something completely unique: a kind of intimate journal rendered in bright colours and odd shapes.

WONDERLAND (2X12 INCH LP)
2x12" Vinyl D 02.12.16
a project that came to life fuelled by collectors obsession and a lifelong willingness to dive head- first into unknown musical wormholes. miles whittaker and sean canty have never been defined by a singular musical trajectory. their opening salvo of releases dabbled with the aesthetic of the occult and provided an alternate. parallax view of the italian library records with which they were both obsessed at the time. but as their long running mixtape series and brilliantly curated dds label attest. their interests extend far outside the crevices of early electronic music and into dance music. dancehall. roots. jungle. techno. industrial. noise and beyond. while 2013s testpressing series provided an outlet for mostly club-based productions shot from the hip. wonderland has been constructed with a narrative in mind.from the clipped hardstyle of the opening curzon. through the jaunty dancehall mutations of animal style and fulledge. exotica/house refractions on hardnoise. the frankly ridiculous. bassbin destroying jungle ructions on sourcer. or the extended tease of overstaying. its probably the most enjoyable and loose-limbed hour of music in their catalogue. or that youll likely hear in these weird. angst-ridden times.

WATCHING DEAD EMPIRES IN DECAY (LP)
12" Vinyl lp UK 28.10.13
polymath james leyland kirby must surely have one of the most confounding cvs in the business: he spent years taking the piss out of the music industry with anthems rallying against the (vv)mcps. he notoriously fell out with various well known record labels for reasons you ll just have to google. goaded aphex twin with a series of tributes and channelled his love of everything from falco (rock me amadeus). chris de burgh. frankie goes to hollywood and stockport karaoke nights into a stream of increasingly bizzare 7 s back in the early noughties. but at the same time he was responsible for releasing some of the very earliest material from boards of canada (hell interface: 1997). made a ruck of frankly groundbreaking industrial electronic records. brought new beat to the worlds attention and. in 1999. made his first album as the caretaker. a project that would go on to release some of the most loved ambient/ lynchian albums of recent times.

second 12 inch in the testpressing series. hand-stamped sleeve including insert with artwork by alex solman. mastered and cut by matt colton at alchemy. pressed at pallas so here we are at part two in the series: grows without bound on the a-side is a monster. a noisy analogue session resurrected from the burning embers of industrial and noise. harnessed into an unstable growl that slowly makes room for a barely-there percussive stumble - think somewhere between vainio and nate young. over on the flipside primitive equations takes for inspiration the bare-boned. hyper-tense production of photeks still devastating ni-ten-ichi-ryu. slugging out feral. steely noise and ardcore torque forged by calloused hands and burning minds to cruel. propulsive effect.

FAINT HEARTED (2X12 LP)
2x12" Vinyl lp UK 16.04.13
miles has been releasing material on modern love for a decade. first as one half of pendle coven. then on his own as mlz. and eventually pairing up with sean canty to record as demdike stare. in between he has also pursued more experimental terrain under the suum cuique moniker. produced jungle for the hate project and (together with andy stott) taken on the occasional release as millie & andrea for modern love sublabel daphne. he is also an admired. exhilarating dj. his sets have been known to span a broad spectrum of electronic music. from the obscure uk techno of labels like radioactive lamb and irdial. to classic chicago house. detroit techno and - most importantly - early 90s jungle and breakbeat. feeding into his love of the most uncompromising end of the italian experimental movement. musique concrète. synthwave and contemporary noise.

TESTPRESSING 001
12" Vinyl D 15.04.13
demdike stare return to the lab with two extended new productions. inaugurating a series of untamed releases brought together under the testpressing banner. collision was recorded in late 2012 and is pretty much unlike anything you will have heard from demdike before. an intense high-frequency re-arrangement of jungle and noise. like a more brutal variant of the demdike-affiliated hate project. fed through a bank of analogue boxes and pedals. left to spin uncontrollably for 10 minutes before fading to black. misappropriation on the flip feeds off a different noise altogether. perched precariously between the mangled percussion you would most commonly associate with muslimgauze and the metallic clank of industry. a proper sunstroke riddim: angry and unforgiving.

FACETS EP (MINI LP)
12" Vinyl lp D 18.07.11
miles whittaker has been an integral part of the modern love label since its inception in 2002 - as one half of both pendle coven and demdike stare. as well as his own productions under the mlz and millie monikers. after almost 15 years writing music. this is the first release miles is putting out under his own name and marks a turning point of sorts in his production style. or rather. in its sequencing. the facets ep brings together different ends of his production style. unifying elements of the house and techno he s most commonly released as mlz together with the more broken production signatures usually reserved for millie and the darkened tribalism of demdike stare. flawed opens the set with a linn loop from the archives. stretched and slowed down with an intoxicated aesthetic that s somewhere between house and dub. before lustre re-configures source material originally keyed in by labelmate andy stott with a nice line in squashed percussion. primer on the flip extends from a demdike stare outtake and veers off into an analogue drum machine workout. before on the fly ends the set with a recording made straight to mixing desk from an array of mis-wired and malfunctioning drum boxes. contact microphones and samplers. over at his studio the mill earlier this year.

PASSED ME BY (2X12)
2x12" Vinyl D 16.05.11
produced slowly and meticulously over the last 12 months. these seven tracks are the closet thing we have had to a new album from andy stott since the release of his debut full-length merciless five years ago. taking influence from an array of seemingly incoherent noises. from the indefinable and unforgettable mind- tricks of arthur russell to the slowhouse of kassem mosse. from the alternate vhs realities of james ferraro and jamal moss to the linn drum classics of the vintage prince era - these seven tracks create their own pace and agenda. largely shying away from the dancefloor in favour of something more complex and hard to define.
