FOOLS
12" Vinyl D 01.03.19
todd osborn returns to spectral sound in his osborne guise with his first release on on the label since 2013 s hold up (feat. joe goddard). fools finds osborn in his best self, as a shapeshifter bringing together strands of various genres. the title track is a lesson in house reduction, while -different- is a chunk of bassline-led techno. on the b-side, -back whenever- kicks off in proto-idm electro form, all melody and light, and -integrate- slows it down to a walking pace for a dash of synth funk.

PRODUCT OF INDUSTRY (2X12 LP)
2x12" Vinyl lp D 28.04.14
producer mark e hails from the west midlands, an area of the uk that was at the heart of the industrial revolution and was also hit hardest by the decline of uk industry in the 1970s, and again by the economic crisis of our own time. its an area with a distinct sound and atmosphere, one that manifests in the music of artists as diverse as black sabbath and the specials, and one that plays into many of the ideas behind mark es new record product of industry.

part 1/3! several shades of the same color is patricias first album for spectral sound, produced in conjunction with his own label active cultures.

this grouping of audio recordings is for aural use only. any emotional content perceived herein is borne of its listener, and is in no way intended by its author. any sounds resembling speech are not intended to convey meaning. several shades of the same color is patricia s first album for spectral sound — produced in conjunction with his own label active cultures. tips for listeners: consider the moment in which you exist, pay attention to how these sounds evoke physiological (rather than cognitive) responses. listeners may find themselves deriving immense physical pleasure from exposure to these sounds. inability to achieve such pleasure is likely attributable to over-analysis of the aforementioned audio content — or to improper amplification. each of shades three lps features suites of tracks that, considered alone, comprise their own distinct, unique worlds. disc one opens with -i know the face, but not the name,- an unabashedly plaintive trip through classic electro rhythms, flip it over for -the words are only sounds,- a haunting affair for synthesizer and voice. disc two s -the electric eye is upon me- swirls endlessly, while -shiba inu dub- is cut for the floor and coy as its namesake. disc three s jackin -feel your body- will cause you to do just that, -german friendship- sounds like d.a.f. on dissociatives. any emotional associations incurred while listening come at the listener s discretion. furthermore, the identity of the author and/or their passions regarding the recordings herein shall bear no weight on the listener s experience. this body of work is not intended to generate ideas, rather, its goal is to produce physical sensations in the listener.

NARCISSUS IN RETROGRADE
12" Vinyl D 25.11.16
avalon emerson’s latest ep, narcissus in retrograde, explores four different styles that shape her distinct voice as a producer and songwriter, from symphonic showstoppers to broken acid. opener “natural impasse“ ferries massive melodic themes through a network of emotive capillaries that’s underpinned by charging drums, while “dystopian daddy“ dons a theatrical flare with costume-changing arpeggiators and digital brass beef that command attention like a stage-hogging space alien diva lip-syncing for new wig money. the b-side takes a more menacing turn with “why does it hurt“, the outright techno achievement of the record, and the snarling closer “groundwater“. ethereal vocals on the former punctuate kicks and growls that sound like they were pulled from a pedal monster’s electric guitar, and on “groundwater“, a crucible of fucked breaks and acid cut a ravine through a bed of off-staccato hats and a sample swamp.

adding to his extensive and diverse catalog, alexi delano delivers his first release for spectral sound. my busted sh-101 is an ode to the beloved and portable synthesizer made by roland in the early 80s, not long before delano started djing. as a producer, he s earned a reputation for being a bit of a machine himself, churning out records on a wide variety of labels over the last 20 years. he holds his own in house music under his a.d.n.y. moniker, but its with tracks such as this one that show off his love for dark, weird techno that sits comfortably alongside spectrals finest.

RISE EP
12" Vinyl D 21.05.12
rising parisian producer yakines career pretty much defines the word eclectic — in his teens, he was a bona fide metalhead, playing guitar in a metal band that toured all over europe, before his love of hip hop steered him in the direction of the dancefloor. he really found his home behind the decks, however, and once he discovered the world of electronic music via the patronage of his brother—who introduced him to the sounds of underground deep house and techno — yakine quickly moved into production. he has since released a series of eps on european labels like esperanza and jetaime records. the rise ep is his first release for spectral sound, a four-track slab of understated, atmospheric techno.

ORANGES
12" Vinyl US 16.04.12
the magic of classic house music has always lain in the way it finds a soul in the machine, eking warm organic sounds from cold circuitry. and tracks dont come much warmer or more organic than >oranges<, a glorious eight-minute slow-burner thats the second single from wolverhampton producer mark es 2011 release stone breaker. >oranges< is a track that demonstrates how the simplest of ingredients — a quietly insistent four-to-the-floor rhythm, an understated bassline, synth pads that sound like the first intimations of a balearic sunrise — can combine to create something remarkable. anyone who has got the cd/digital release of stone breaker, of course, will know this already — but this release is the first chance to own this track on vinyl, as it was absent from the albums lp release. on the flipside is a remix of >oranges< by mark e himself: the appropriately-named space dub, a lindstrøm-esque reworking that transports the track from the dance floor to some distant orbit, drifting through space on a wash of lambent fuzz-toned synths. as different as they are, both tracks share a sense of both space and intimacy, a mellow charm that is evocative and inclusive. a soul in the machine.

KICKING UP (STABLO REMIX)
12" Vinyl CA 12.12.11
ryan elliott has long been our not-so-secret weapon, lending his curatorial mastery to the massive spectral sound vol. 3 compilation, megamixingspectral 25, and of course by representing on turntables the world over. but after a mere handful of remix credits, he charges out of the gates with his first spectral production, kicking up. deep bass and snares hurtle ever forward, assisted by occasional, faint sonic flourishes and a bevy of throwback vocal loops, but is otherwise devoid of sustained melody. if nothing impedes the supercharged, supersexual, super-detroit momentum of kicking up, the stablo no. remix dials back the tech and pushes its house to the fore. shakers, claps, echo and a whole lot of lateral motion imbues elliott s take-no-prisoners original with a surprising conviviality.

THE DAY (PRINS THOMAS REMIX)
12" Vinyl D 20.06.11
for all the wonderfully subtle shell-breaking he did on his full-length, mark e falls back on old, slow habits for his new single, >the day<. and welcomely, we might add. pitching things down to a basement lounge floor crawl, the midlands dj/producer wraps his always chugging kicks and snares in serpentine synth-bass, jazzy, tripleted hi-hats, and moaning, wordless soul vocals. its grasp is tantric—hinting coyly at ecstatic release, but never fully delivering. for the vinyl junkies that bought stone breaker and missed out on it the first time around (it was absent from that version), this release should be a no brainer. but >the day< isnt carrying all the weight here. a new track called >special fx< will have sample hounds—particularly those with a thing for classic electro-pop—salivating. and the oft imitated, never replicated prins thomas shows up on the flip for a (naturally) eleven- minute revamp of >the day<, livening up the bass and drum patterns, adding in strings, piano, guitar, organ, and ending up with something that totally could have emanated from a camaro at some point in the early seventies. (albeit, one owned by someone with interest in eleven-minute instrumentals.) it even has a fade out!

LET ME COUNT THE WAYS
12" Vinyl CA 30.05.11
benoit & sergio dont make dance tracks—they tell stories. in the washington dc duos music, a sense of place and narrative infuse their rhythms and melodies, transcending having flexed their synth-pop muscles on releases for dfa (the acclaimed boy trouble ep) and visionquest (the lovelorn where the freaks have no name ep), dc duo benoit & sergio return to spectral sound for a victory lap around the dancefloor. and >let me count the ways< is just that, sounding every bit the perfect, hands-in-the-air final anthem of the evening. tireless hi-hats push the beat onward and dreamy synthesized strings saturate the stereo space as sergio intones, >let me count the ways / the ways that ive loved.< as the line repeats, its meaning bends to fit the songs tone of endless, time-suspended romance: its not the loves that matter in the end, but the ways. its not the destination, but the journey. the b-sides >let me count the ways (autumn version)<is a vastly different take on the original?s maximalist swell. stripping the beat back to its bare essentials and building them up again over nearly 12 minutes, the >autumn version< recalls arthur russell?s more minimal moments down to its wobbly bass filigree and mumbled vocal samples. by the end of the track, the claps are falling on the twos and fours like crinkly foliage, synths are sizzling like firewood, and benoit & sergio?s newest banger is revealed in its full glory once again.

lee curtiss and spectral sound have been running in the same pack for years-&#64257,,nally, after suf&#64257,,ciently circling each other and snif&#64257,,ng each others business, spectral and lee have joined forces to release the detroit producers the black door ep, and it s a doozy. lee curtiss traf&#64257,,cs in airtight, undeniable dance tracks with a tricksters sense of experimentation-the black door ep is all that and more, a beguiling 12 inch whose charms multiply with each listen. >black door beauty< opens side a with a touch of chicago futurism, spinning congas, staccato vocal samples, and a swift dusting of hi-hats into a house anthem with psychedelic undertones. berlin producer dyed soundoroms remix minimizes the sub-bass thump and plays up the tracks oddball trappings, tricking out >black door beauty< with the sounds of creaking hinges, neurotic synthesizers, and a particularly creepy chorus of hysterical tittering. b-side >smoking mirrors< guides the listener through clouds of melting organ tones and busy, polyrhythmic click-clack as a sturdy bassline (with a funky, french-house beat skip) cuts through the haze. curtiss lets the rhythm do the work, building to multiple climaxes in the span of seven minutes. at the end of each anxious buildup, there s a womans breathless moan, a let-the-air-out-of-the-tires hiss, and it s time to do it all over again.

DEATH IS NOTHING TO FEAR 3
12" Vinyl CA 04.02.08
death is nothing to fear 3 is the third installment of spectral sounds compilation series, focused on bringing forward new voices in the world of techno. brought together by an equally brash and nuanced take on tonal manipulation, the four artists presented here - finlands sami koivikko, berlin- by - way - of detroits seth troxler, chicagos kate simko and ann arbors 2am/fm (james t. cotton and d marc cantu) - contribute a vast yet tightly controlled understanding of the compilations theme. what unfolds is a tough and modern ride through international techno and house.

SUCKFISH (2LP)
2x12" Vinyl US 29.09.05
amidst the maelstrom of aliases adopted by detroits prodigious and prolific mmaatttthheeww ddeeaarr, audion is undoubtedly the grittiest -- a dark representation of dears id and a brain undone. the singles kisses,the pongand just fuckinghave earned immense praise for their serrated approach to heavy 4/4 techno, bringing untamed synths and raucous beats into a devastating melange. all three songs appear on the suckfish full-length alongside eight other dancefloor burners that also work on the listening/psychedelic level, making for one of dears strongest and most distinctive releases to date

JUST FUCKING
12" Vinyl US 11.08.05
the third chapter in matthew dear s audion 12inch series is here, the true precursor to this fall’s suckfish lp. potentially the most insane and dancefloor-destroying of the group, following the already classic eps kisses and the pong. this is the sound of matthew dear s subconscious coming to life. mule-kick beats, dirty synth squelch and a bass roll-out that has already rocked everywhere from detroit to berlin. roman flügel (of alter ego fame) delivers a summer party-ready club bomber with his 23 positions in a one-night stand mix, which strips the original down to its essential elements but keeps the infectious energy of the original. guaranteed to rock. you have been warned
