part 5 of 5 to be released over the coming couple of months. originally released on the phono label in 1995/96 the ‘parts’ series from matthew herbert are a much loved collection of house tracks that sound just as original and bold today as they did when they were first released. this series of 12”s were part of an early wave of exploratory dance music that paved the way for the deep house that still works its magic on dance-floors in 2018 some 25 years later. the mix of herbert’s playfulness alongside expertly grooving production and unusual sounds makes this unique collection of work. the odd few tracks aside this is the first time that these releases have ever been repressed. all newly remastered for this reissue series, the releases include stone cold club classics such as ‘deeper’, ‘take me back’, ‘resident’, ‘people that make the music’ and ‘see you on monday’.
a geniune collection of dubs from dats courtesy of downlink, slow cooked in a dusty drawer since 1997. a1 was originally released on mosaic and stays true to the dub techno sound which defined the label while the other tracks have never seen the light of day until now. if gritty acid workouts are your cup of tea then look no further. the a side features a printed artwork from san francisco based artist klari reis
as always, the return of ruede hagelstein is inevitable and with each return he ups the ante tenfold showcasing his ever growing prowess behind the studio door. it seems as if, with each ruede ep, the amount of elements utilized shrinks while at the same time the sound grows in power and dominance and that could not be better exemplified than here. consisting of two originals and a remix from the one and only martin buttrich, the ep is a gross display of well thought out, mature dance floor jewels. opening the short player is hagelsteins ‘dematerialize feat. justin evans where a sinister yet soothing vocal sets the tone for the entire track, laying the groundwork for a gorgeous bass drum and shimmers of distant percussion carry us into celestial spaces. ‘forward vision is up next and follows suit by relying on a brooding minimal groove to drive the shimmers of glistening atmospherics and sparkling sonics optimal for dizzy and delirious club moments. last but certainly not least we turn to the legend who is martin buttrich to twist the original ‘dematerialize feat. justin evan into a more straightforward composition with his signature stylings opening the doors of accessibility to a wider demographic of disc jockeys resulting in a track that stretches the playability to a wide range of disc jockeys
through the cortex sees fixmer gravitating toward a different kind of industrial-tinged electronics, led as much (or more) by analogue sequencers, melodies and ultra-saturated sounds of synthesizers than drums and percussion

voiski embarks on the third expedition into the cosmic lands .a collection of singular and utopian ambient, electronica and techno tracks illustrated by spectacular picture of layla kerley and bruno compagnet. cosmic adventure is an honest portrayal without fabrication or pretense. too often electronic music is subjected to the damaging opinions of others and categorized in a movement or a trend, choking the freshness out of the sound. cosmic adventure provides a platform of creative energy, a unique platform for unique artists who search nothing except discovering new landscapes and inspiration.

after many years of steady work bristol-based artist joefarr created a well-respected profile on his own, he is now joining the label showing a side of his works that many never saw probably, and others always knew but never saw on a record. development always takes time, and time is nothing when the art comes out in his true form. this is “dedicate” - a very important record that represents something deeper than a peace of wax, label boss emmanuel took the big responsibility to remix the title track and make his own view of joefarr’s dedication.

the burrell connection is somewhat a resident with craigie knowes, he lived in the same flat in glasgow with label boss max when he started the label in 2015, he featured on the first release, he contributed to second fundraiser album, hes also played half of the parties at their glasgow home, la cheetah club, and travelled with the craigie knowes dj team to wow crowds around europe. but enough of the history, this is now - the burrell connections debut ep with the imprint, hyper/orbit. hyperactive techno and breaks blended together, emotive pads, 808 basslines and that ever-creative and homage-paying sampling ability that the burrell connections noble followers have come to love. its scotlands poster-boy at his finest. diversity is the key to longevity.

classic norken/delsin ep from 2000 repressed. original release text: lee norris became known with his releases as metamatics, through the now defunct clear-label and is running his label neo ouija nowadays. this ep hosts four tracks continuing the style of his previous norken releases. four tracks consisting of very soulful sounds and smooth melodies together with more forward beats or more sophisticated break beats. best to be compared with music from artists like by john beltran, carl craig and his own metamatics of course. beautiful things!
1/2 gott is the new project of sneaker from dresden/berlin and scannoir from zurich, who share their love for ebm and synth pop not only when djing but also when producing. in several nights and with the help of a decent group of instruments, they have evoked a series of tracks that can certainly be subsumed as new swiss wave. the first record is entitled 1/2 gott and will be followed by gott in the foreseeable future. the result is music that sounds as if the iron curtain had never fallen. although sneaker likes to step to the microphone, he leaves the vocals to scannoir, who gives the perfect counterpart for the menacing beats with his deep laments. the tracks are little masterpieces in the matter of repetition with whipping drums and off-beat percussions. however, they cannot disguise their hymn-like gesture. this must be the sound of a sunrise over the industrial area.
index:records is moonstruck to announce the 12” release dorsal, by berlin based artist, vase. dorsal is a genre bending output that combines the carefully layered sound of ambience with rhythmic ingenuity. the tracks aviolet and kinto balance in the eclectic techno realm with a nod to a time when idm was taking form. the organic grooves on the ep suit many settings, from big industrial spaces to soft forest beds.
“cliché’s principle” exhibits the two-sided aura of an artist long familiar with the cultivation of diy ethos: an effortless expulsion of playful immediacy and the unfolding of a musician well versed in unpretentious composition. lucy cliché’s five track ep for fleisch records is a jacking romp through 120-125bpm electro/new-beat, swooning through downcast ambience, lobotomised vocal samples and sweat-drenched hardware rhythms.
lucy’s musical oeuvre piles high, as a figure in the sydney underground for the past 15 years she has always explored sounds that playfully antagonize the status-quo, the dysfunctional no-wave approach of her band naked on the vague and the manipulated tape ambience of half high echo throughout cliché’s principle in the form of chorus buzzed synth chords, abstract drones and ethereal evocation. while there is the strong presence of a live veteran at work behind the machines, cliché’s principle holds five tracks produced purely with the intention of paving the dance-floor.
following up on their acclaimed 2016 album, “pitch black mirror”, the canadian duo return to sonic groove with four new tracks based on their improvised live performances. these are dance floor tracks with an experimental edge and a pervasive sense of dread, emphasizing the project’s decades-long commitment to fusing techno and industrial music in unique ways. elements of ebm, electro, and rhythmic noise blur together as serpentine basslines twist through shifting layers of percussion, and modular dronescapes morph into agonized voices of suffering and defiance. another powerful weapon from the orphx arsenal.
known for his strong live performances, swedish producer celldöd creates music for the body as well as the soul: his influences range from punk, industrial and dub music over to acid house, techno and ebm. that new five track banger ep is dealing with subjects such as sadism, masochism, unhealthy relationships, and the fact that the good never prevails. but if the world is going to hell, we can at least dance on the way down. let us move, together. in darkness.
positive centre marks the 5th release on his in silent series label with 4 tracks of weighted mechanical workouts that feature his honed atmospheric style with brooding scenery and sharp percussive accents. isolated loop takes a crunched and spat out growl of an acid synth and blends it with ever developing drum machine patterns as a weaponised techno tool. tension arm builds on this with sharp percussion piercing over a hard edged bassline and atmospheric scenery. idle roller is a deep, sub-aquatic rhythm journeying to parts unknown with subtle switch in rhythm keeping the momentum going through this textured sound world. sum tolerance fractures open with stretched sounds of otherworldly instruments, sludge laden beats and humming bass pressure.
it was like a bird of rarest-spun heaven metal or like silvery wine flowing in a spaceship, gravity all nonsense now – anthony burgess, a clockwork orange after their lps “ike yard” (also known as “a fact a second” factory america, 1982) and nord (phisteria and desire, 2010) ike yard delivers their last album “rejoy” on noiztank, 2018 as the culmination of their recent years reinvented sound. as the perpetual flag bearers of the cutting-edge post-punk spirit, the nyc- based band shows muscle in a lp fully loaded with abrasive synth pads, scrap metal percussions, and whispered vocals. following the previous criteria of “sacred machine” 2017, it is worth to remark the inclusion of external vocals in the pieces “sister m” and “beyondersay”, which feature yuki osaki and maya. the nine tracks move through different atmospheres, tensions and moods that would perfectly represent a new contemporary soundtrack of the s. kubrick film “a clockwork orange”, a major influence and source of inspiration for the group this time around.
true to the dna of luke slaters imprint, rene wise fires off a throbbing combination of big room-ready 4/4 mechanics, high-velocity bass and hypnotic acideries on a dopey, dubby flex - engineering the tools of chaos for a highly immersivedive into the basements teeming underworld and its nocturnal fauna.
fresh names to visionquest, but certainly not new to the game, more than material is the promising new project between two bonafide french selector statesmen who collectively boast decades of dancefloor and studio science: jedsa soundorom and gauthier dm. launching their new alias earlier this year on zingiber audio, their signature has been tangible from the off, deep weighted grooves, warm dynamics and total immersion.
enzo siragusa rounds off another incredible summer with a highly anticipated project, a collaborative fuse ep with martin buttrich. striking a perfect balance between enzo’s uk rave roots and martin’s matured finesse, the ‘three squared’ ep nestles neatly within fuse’s distinct sonic palette.
evod music is glad to share the first physical ep by syntaxism. five tracks made of suspended electrical particles and strong grooves. “onar” is a genuine techno track that contains an acid sequence accompanied by various sound weavings. “yapar” is characterized by the combination of various bleep textures, perfectly superimposed on high frequencies raids.the b side represents the introverted world of syntaxism, made of mysticism and mystery. “complesso k” and “processo s” are two hypnotizing, utopian tracks, both ones are the result of the sum of so many electrical layers in continuous transformation. “ispezione visiva” is the perfect outro. an elegant, relaxing sequence is fused with excited bleeps and an infinite drone.
perhaps cpu’s deepest foray into techno, osaka-based artist yuri urano’s ‘autline’ e.p. draws parallels with the machine-like incremental builds of sweet exorcist / richard h kirk. plenty of variation with minimal down-tempo through to fierce industrial techno. urano’s industrial sound is gaining a lot of attention in the japanese techno scene and this e.p. will only galvanise her reputation.
falk records will be releasing ‘spaces’ from icelandic experimental producer aaiieenn this august. aaiieenn is the solo project of electronic musician hallmar gauti halldórsson. halldórsson first came to music though being a mover and shaker in iceland’s punk and hardcore scene where he was the “harsh noise guy” with local band distill the world. with aaiieenn however, halldórsson moved away from the guitars and screaming to a fully electronic world of experimental synth music and gorging on the mathematical possibilities and expanses of arpeggio/sequencer driven ambient music. ‘calab-yau’ and ‘continuous property 1’ drip shards of pure crystalline sound into deep crevasses as harmonic droplets ping of gleaming surfaces coated with spongiform bass. the light and effervescent ‘euclidean’ evokes classic ambient works aphex twin, while ‘manifold’ is more direct with a muscular and sturdy bassline. spaces closes with the fluttering and lush ambient sounds of ‘zariksi’ that are carried into the skies by a pulsing and gliding techno beat.
1992 hardcore club classic from kev bird. originally kev bird’s second release on the basement records label made famous by in-house producer jack smooth. 3 slices of pure hardcore jungle techno lead by the seminal ‘this is a trip’ are taken from the original dat master tape and get the full sound entity remastering treatment to bring the sound right up to date with current standards.

“hulled” is a 25 minute journey spread across 4 tracks of glacial abandon. all tracks were recorded directly to tape with no overdubs, made at converse’s home studio. bill says these tracks represent “ocean waves in stormy conditions, dark grey blue water, or more generally speaking something ominous and beautiful.” the songs on this album reveal a sublime influence from detroit techno, idm, and acid. built around vintage synthesizer lines and gritty drum machine percussion, the tracks ebb and flow like the effect of sun shimmering on water, woozy, gauzy and ephemeral. all songs were mastered for vinyl by george horn at fantasy studios in berkeley. each ep is housed in a die-cute jacket designed by eloise leigh with peachy pink patterns landing on an alien water planet and seeing mysterious playing forms under the turquoise water. and the. each copy includes a postcard featuring photo of bill with notes.
georgia-born, brooklyn-based sophia saze set up dusk & haze to release ‘genre-free’ experimental music, exhibited in the label’s debut release entitled ’solace’ ep featuring four versatile cuts from sophia herself and twisted electro and techno remixes from umwelt and benjamin damage. the second release comes from the enigmatic sdx, a masked artist who’s fiercely championed left-of-centre dance music for decades. crunchy drums and a thumping bassline kick things off in ‘ms 04’ before los angeles duo 138 provide an outstanding remix incorporating a cacophony of raw breaks. modulated flutters, warped blips and white noise create ‘ms 08’, leading into the organic drums and off-kilter arpeggios of ‘007’ until new york’s sc- 164 reworks ‘007’ delivering a pulsating sub and distorted vocal chops. sdx’s ‘nocturnal’ drops on dusk & haze on 10th september 2018.
k.a.c.z.m.a.r.e.k”, from the title to the sounds, is intended to be a more personal project for paul ritch – indelibly closer to the confluences of sounds that he hears embodying the spirit of kaczmarek. he drives the mind’s eye deep into the inner-ear with the album’s spacious opening tracks, only to leave your head bobbing with the extraterrestrial rhythms that emerge as the main body of the album. moody and foreboding, loaded with the scattered, staccato and broken beats, more ovular than linear in composition and ranging from vaporous-ambience to hyperventilating grooves, the nine tracks on this album defy categorisation. the “k.a.c.z.m.a.r.e.k” album will give the listener a deep well to return to. the vinyl release will be a fittingly rare issue – only 100 numbered copies are going out, while digital releases will run parallel. keeping with the dark and cryptic theme of the first releases russian artist, sasha sime, is back for his third kczmrk cover design
