VICIOUS CIRCLES (LP)
12" Vinyl lp UK 17.08.18
planet mu are very happy to be releasing “vicious circles”, the debut ep by sinjin hawke and zora jones, who aside from producing music also run the audio-visual production unit “fractal fantasy”. zora released several collaborations on last year’s “visceral minds 2 including “dark matter” with planet mu’s jlin, while sinjin has collaborated with dj rashad, just blaze and mikeq, and also produced music for monoliths like kanye west and frank ocean. remarkably, given the breadth of their work, “vicious circles” is their first collaborative ep, and the first time either have released on vinyl.

FREE FOR ALL (LP)
12" Vinyl lp UK 12.06.18
sami baha is a turkish producer based in south east london. his music was introduced to the world via his 2016 ep “mavericks” (planet mu), recorded while he was moving from istanbul to london where he’s now been living the last 3 years. sami got into producing through being a rapper himself, working with local rappers in turkey and producing beats for them, before setting his sights outside the country.
while his first record was focused around a more familiar trap based hiphop sound, “free for all” expands its range into more unfamiliar territory and also brings his production into focus by featuring a number of mcs from all corners of the globe: uk drill squad 67’s dimzy, stockholm’s yung lean and chicago rapper and singer dj nate (aka flexxbabii) who’s previously recorded on planet mu as a footwork producer. the record also features the rowdy sing-song of egyptian mcs dawsha and abanob from cairo whom sami met while on tour in egypt.

RED, WHITE & ZERO (LP)
12" Vinyl UK 27.02.18
east man is a new project from anthoney hart and its material predates his previous work as basic rhythm. his unique take on grime reduces the sound to its steely fundamentals, bringing in influences from dancehall, drum and bass and techno to gird the voices of the mcs he works with. his own name for this hardcore continuum mongrel is hi tek.
anthoney struck a friendship with the academic and theorist paul gilroy, who wrote the album introduction below, after starting personal research on representations of working class and mixed race families. he asked paul for some help after coming across his work via stuart hall, paul’s mentor. their discussions and friendship developed, and it dawned on anthoney that his research and the east man album had some synergy, so he asked paul to write a piece conveying that.

SPONSORED CONTENT (LP)
12" Vinyl lp UK 05.10.17
antwood (a.k.a. canada’s tristan douglas) returns to planet mu with his second album “sponsored content”. the album is more reflective than his debut, last year’s “virtuous.scr”. the relentless mood of the first album has given way to a more melodic, stripped out sound. it still shakes with speed and energy, but with more space, more moments of delicate sadness and strange cyborg pop. what comes to the fore in “sponsored content” is tristan’s gift for melody, coupled with the uncanny feeling that somehow his strange music is an entire ecosystem of it’s own.

BIOPRODUKT (2X12 LP)

ekoplekz returns with his fourth album for planet mu, in the shape of 10-tracker “bioprodukt”. the unique lo-fi, woozy sound of bristol’s nick edwards stays intact while he veers towards the nineties for inspiration: the bleep and bass sound of the north of england is one touchpoint and the acid gurgles of the 303 are another.

BLACK ORIGAMI (2X12 LP)
2x12" Vinyl lp D 18.05.17
planet mu are very excited to announce jlin’s long awaited second album “black origami”. a percussion-led tour de force, it’s a creation that seals her reputation as a unique producer with an exceptional ability to make riveting rhythmic music.
“black origami” is driven by a deep creative thirst which she describes as “this driving feeling that i wanted to do something different, something that challenged me to my core. black origami for me, comes from letting go creatively, creating with no boundaries. the simple definition of origami is the art of folding and constructing paper into a beautiful, yet complex design. composing music for me is like origami, only i m replacing paper with sound. i chose to title the album -black origami- because like -dark energy- i still create from the beauty of darkness and blackness. the willingness to go into the hardest places within myself to create for me means that i can touch the infinity.”

MAVERICKS
12" Vinyl UK 14.04.16
sami baha is a young producer from istanbul, with his roots in the turkish hiphop scene, who has been stealthily pricking up ears with guest spots on rinse fm and nts since he moved to london last year. he started this ep ‘mavericks’ while he was in istanbul, saying “the music i produced became more chaotic as istanbul became a harsher place both politically and economically. i didn t really design it that way, but i feel like the sound got more aggressive over the years”. he describes his music as ‘instrumental trap‘, but instead of trap vocals there are complex arrangements, although he has started to work with vocalists while he’s been in the uk.

DARK ENERGY (2X12 LP)
2x12" Vinyl lp UK 01.04.15
as the popularity of footwork has continued to soar, the range of sounds within the genre has expanded. from the angular, minimal beats of rp boo to the widely admired sound of sadly departed dj rashad, the genre has lovingly seeped into hearts and feet worldwide whilst continuing to innovate. until now most of the focus has been on the male dj/producers, but that is about to change. gary based producer jlin, who some of you might remember for her track *erotic heat* (bangs and works vol.2 – planet mu 2011), or from her moment in the mainstream light providing music for fashion designer rick owens f/w 14 paris runway show, is stepping further into the light with a stunning eleven track debut album *dark energy* showcasing her unique and bold new sound.

12" Vinyl lp UK 17.10.13
misty conditions is a project that started off when henry collins and richard wilson met up in henrys studio a couple of years ago and jammed for a few days non-stop, enjoying the process thoroughly. the connection became so good in this period that the duo developed a fluent understanding of how each other worked, ending up as a project made across the internet, while henry was living in france and richard in la. they cross pollinated by developing what each did best, henry making and creating banks of samples and richard creating software and effects to cut up and re-sample, passing the tracks back and forth, essentially until they felt finished.

DREAM ON (2X12 LP + MP3)
2x12" Vinyl lp UK 08.11.12
with his second release for planet mu this year, >dream on< is more of a full-length outing for ital aka daniel martin-mccormick and a much more substantial record than the popular and critically acclaimed >hive mind<.
on >dream on< ital takes his experimentation with house and techno forms even further, creating impressionistic deconstructions from the tropes of early house and techno. sunny chords, laid back drum shuffle and rhythmic vocal loops are picked apart and threaded with a rich psychodrama of delirious textures, tidal chords and uneasy roughness and dissonance.

BUSSIN DOWN EP
12" Vinyl UK 18.04.11
>bussin down< is the first planet mu single from chrissy murderbot, who comes with a style inspired by his chosen city of chicagos juke and footwork scenes. he playfully mixes in elements of other styles of music he loves, such as rnb and dancehall, to create lively mutations with a warm hearted mass appeal that comfortably straddles genres. >bussin down< features chicago footwork supremo dj spinn over some tasty footwork tracks featuring spinns instructional lyrics, over some high speed jazz funk and cracking claps and klaviers. next track >braaain< is a unique amalgam of footwork with the classic early digital sleng teng bassline. the blend works fantastically, as chrissy slides the originals vocal in and out of the mix in a dub style. on the b-side atki2 takes album track >the vibe is so right< featuring vocals from mc zulu and runs it through a lush treatment that mixes detroit washes with tight, laidback, rolling funky house drums, to instant classic effect. on b2, chicago footwork pioneers djs rashad and spinn send the originals vocal into a whirl of complex delays and layered loops over cold drums and hard techno stabs. just the faintest taste of what is in store on the m-bots incredible >womens studies< album due soon on planet mu.

RACE AGAINST TIME

numan khan from manchester is a new artist for planet mu with an original musical style that mixes dubstep and grime influences with an idiosyncratic take on rhythm to great effect.
this four track ep showcases his styles from the a side with the lush melodic accordian and snes melodies of >race against time<, to the slower, disco influenced >photograph<.
the b side starts with >voodoo<, which combines grimey bass and strings with offbeat drums to odd, driving effect and finishes with >xx< which sounds like a long lost golden era 8-bit grime instrumental but with deft production tweaks and fx that keep it interesting and effective.

SMUCK / WE COULD BE IKONS (RMX)
12" Vinyl UK 17.11.09
planet mu is very pleased to have ikonika a.k.a. sara abdel-hamids first proper release on another label outside of hyperdub.
ikonika is mixmags new artist of the month on the october issue.
>smuck< has been given a home on the label alongside ikonikas remix of eero johannes for this 12 inch ... and what a pair they make.
>smuck< follows in the tradition of ikonika~rs sweet and sour, curdled sound, with ever changing off-key melodies and metal-like synth guitar lines over sweet chilled chords, the track takes her penchant for melodies that border on the atonal as far as it can go, like a sophisticated take on 8-bar grime.
her remix of eero johannes >we could be skweeeerooos< on the b-side simply switches up the tempo of the original, makes the rhythm nice and bouncy and tightens up the original adding some trademark bent melodies and a see-sawing bassline. the end result is a linear, melodic track that feels like its somewhere between wiley and aphex at their sweetest.

LOCKOUT (2X12 INCH)
2x12" Vinyl UK 08.07.09
the sunshine coast?s resident electronic maverick, milanese is back on with his heavy-as-fuck 2nd album on the mighty planet mu, and a snapshot of the continued evolution of his unique, fresh angle on streetwise uk bass music.
having pioneered the heavy, dark and twisted experimental dubstep sound with his previous releases on warp, combat, mg77, arcola, seed and planet mu, this new lp sees a shift towards collaboration. with strong vocal artists like ben sharpa (pioneer unit, cape town) and rqm (al haca, vienna), who deliver interesting lyrics in a unique style, melded perfectly with milanese?s own fat swerving basslines, solid drums full of attitude and odd, mangled samples.
melting dubstep?s earth shaking frequencies with hip hop & grime vocals and hard edged timbaland influenced drums and percussion, the result defies categorization: neither dubstep, grime, hip hop nor idm - you could call it a mashup of all these, but it?s more accurate to say it sounds like streetwise bass music for the year 3000. incredibly strange beats and sounds but keeping the funk, fury and bounce 100% on lockdown.
challenging, menacing and forward thinking like his previous releases 1up on warp (2004) and extend on planet mu (2006), its also 31 year old steve milanese?s most dancefloor record yet.

AUTOBIOGRAPHY (2X12 LP)
2x12" Vinyl UK 16.10.18
by now, the story of how jlin went from working in a steel factory in gary, indiana to being one of the most widely appreciated electronic musicians is well known. “black origami” was one of the most lauded albums last year. seriously prolific and seriously hard-working, she has toured constantly since its may 2017 release and despite being involved in a wide range of projects, still manages to find a balance and time to “do some personal healing and growing.”
here we are over a year later with “autobiography,” the score for her collaboration with renowned british choreographer wayne mcgregor (a collaboration arranged by krakow’s unsound). this isn’t technically her third album (that’s due to arrive in 2019 or 2020), but the soundtrack stands up on its own with all the emotional peaks and troughs of a well-sequenced lp.

“footwork”—the very word indicates a movement of the feet that is “work” (as in an effort to achieve). its joyous social party nature sits within a lineage of african american history that includes the infamous soul train dance tunnel and hip hop dance circles. however, as footwork continues to become more popular, we should not forget that at its essence it is a highly evolved battle form. this is the central theme one feels listening to the stunning “fingers, bank pads & shoe prints,” the second album from rp boo, the man credited with inventing the footwork genre with a 1997 track “baby come on” (recently re-released on the planet mu ep “classics vol. 1”).

THE SEER OF COSMIC (2X12 LP + MP3)
2x12" Vinyl lp + mp3 UK 24.10.14
producer and boss of mathematics records, jamal moss a.k.a hieroglyphic being is a one-off musical explorer. jamals music takes cues from the ebm and house that played a huge part in the city s musical underground in the late eighties and early nineties, notably ron hardy and adonis, but also industrial, avant-jazz and noise. his tireless schedule of rough low-key releases over the last 12 years and his intense, very physical, psychedelic music, have made him a key exponent or maybe even a pioneer of what has recently come to be named outsider house, although he prefers the more sun-ra like descriptors of rhythmic cubism and cosmic be-bop.

MY LOVE IS A BULLDOZER (2X12 LP + MP3)
2x12" Vinyl lp UK 20.06.14
with *my love is a bulldozer*, venetian snares first new album since 2010s *my so-called life*, aaron funk surprises yet again, drawing on new ideas and on moods that have only been touched upon in his previous work. the album seems to have a flowing sense of narrative, something akin to an opera, and unusually aaron sings songs on it, which reinforces the sense of an emotional journey. sonically he meshes together sometimes thunderous yet complex drum programming with delicate musical structures, creating, in places, a sense of haunted, atmospheric jazziness, as well as spiky autumnal strings recalling the gothic orchestral beauty of his previous work.

DA MIND OF TRAXMAN VOL.2 (2X12 LP + MP3)
2x12" Vinyl lp + mp3 UK 20.06.14
the last few years have seen chicago footwork rise to international success, and traxmans debut album - *the mind of traxman* on planet mu - played no small part in that. it showcased cornelius fergusons brilliant ability to synthesise the beat digging of classic hip hop with the high-speed abstraction of footworks house-derived beat science. the selection of tracks on this second chapter show a slightly different take on traxman s abilities. instead of bringing in concepts from other genres, he simply creates a wider variety of footwork, made with a minimal, reduced palette. often just one or two samples are selected and diced into brain-blurring cubist puzzles that bear little relation to their original sources, or anything else for that matter.

>nebula dance< assimilates the influences of current music being made at the speeds between 140 to 160 bpm, reacting to develpoments in dubstep, jungle and more recently footwork, retraining ital teks instinct for deep and melodic music with an emphasis on dramatic drum work and impressionistic synths with restrained precision.

REWORKZ EP
12" Vinyl UK 28.03.12
this three tracker from the aptly named dream continuum is a collaboration between travis stewart a.k.a. machinedrum and jim coles a.k.a. om unit, who was behind the phillip d kick footwork jungle tracks in 2011. the meeting came about when travis and jim realised they were working in parallel on the same concept of finding the sweet spot between mid-90?s euphoric jungle and footwork, so naturally they set about working out how to find it together. the reworkz ep moves backwards and forwards in time with be free treating jungles diva samples with footwork pitch bending and repetition while adding huge uplifting chords that capture the euphoria of rave perfectly. it s then laid over tough, rolling 808 kicks and snares at 160bpm with a carpet of pumping, rhythmic sub-bass resulting in a new hybrid that is both fresh and energetic. give a lil luv is, if anything, even more euphoric, like rolling thunder with an intense, melodic use of samples and chord stabs with metallic breaks building into a spiky mesh of rhythms. on side b set it draws classic dancehall, soul and reggae samples across a perfect mix of fast juke cymbals and jungle amens, each part casually camouflaging the other, tempering footworks sometimes intimidating sparseness and filling it with rich, warm and sincere rave energy.

YOU STAND UNCERTAIN (2LP)

when falty dl released >love is a liability<, his 2009 debut lp on planet mu, it was notionally tied to dubstep, despite not having that obvious a connection to the sound at the time. a combination of irregular but still funky drums, deep bass, and light musical surfaces, it stood out and was recognised for its distinctiveness - this was a native new yorker interpreting his love of british dance music from a unique angle.
after spending 2010 honing his craft, working on singles for several labels, and remixes for the likes of the xx, mount kimbie and anthony shakir, falty dl, born drew lustman, pulls his skills and experience together for this stunning new lp. falty dls soundworld has evolved in giant steps on >you stand uncertain<, from the very beginning the listener is plunged into his new focus on layered dusty atmospheres. opener >gospel of opal< is also his first work with a vocalist, in this case anneka.

7TH DIMENSION
12" Vinyl UK 03.02.10
after appearances in numerous end-of-year charts, raffertie continues to meddle with the dna of uk dance music on two ready made anthems. the more ballistic side of rafferties oeuvre is shown on the blazing >7th dimension< with crushed house beats alloyed to swooping bass wobbles and head searing synths, while the oddly affecting >string theory< should only add to his fanbase with an impressive grasp of bassline dynamics and vintage uk rave atmospherics that doesnt sound like much out there.

LET THEM SING / FROM THE STANDPOINT
12" Vinyl UK 17.11.09
brendan angelides, aka eskmo is a san francisco based music producer who records music thats influenced by both dubstep and older grime, with a strange added x factor and an instinctive pop feel.
>let them sing< mixes together stuttering, whirring half-step drums and bass with a strange whirring melody that speeds up and slows down throughout the track, backed up with warm sunbeam like chord. the intense trance-like feel of the track is relieved by the dropping in of a neat vocoder vocal for a makeshift chorus. its an unusual track that coils and uncoils the tension throughout, masterfully releasing and tightening the pressure.
track two >from the standpoint< mutates what sounds like a vocal culled from a new age meditation cd into a weird hypnagogic electronic melody, while chords spiral and drums ebb and flow underneath. like >let them sing< the listener is drawn through several stages, from an intense massaging build up, into a period of release completed with that sonic signifier of calm, birdnoise. the track then drops into an extended period of the vocal, as the chords accompany in all their strangeness. its like an extremely artful and arch take on the utilitarian grime technique of changing the track every 8 bars.

ONE FOOT IN THE RAVE (2X12)
2x12" Vinyl lp UK 04.06.09
stepping up for album number four on planet mu, if you dont know shitmat by now then where have you been? co founder of the seminal wrong music record label and veteran of the breakcore scene, henry collins from brighton is back. is one foot in the rave the end of the line for shitmat as you know him? will this be his last album under the shitmat moniker? if so, what a better way to end things with the way it all began, back to the oldskool. with throwback albums being the fashion, shitmat joins the likes of zomby and glowstyx to bring a nostalgic album of 92-94 jungle breaks and amen killers. shitmat has gone to great effort in the album to keep the original authentic jungle sound using an akai s950 sampler, the hardcore junglists weapon of choice and sampling cassettes from old pirate radio shows. this amen heavy full length is reminiscent of dj seduction, foul play and early remarc with a tip of the hat from shitmat towards the oldskool masters of the break. shitmat continues to tour with dates across the u.k and europe with a headlining date at the bangface weekender where fans will be able to witness the full on gore and carnage of shitmats one foot in the rave tour.
