we are very happy to introduce our new ep appian012 by estrato aurora. hailing from valencia, and with a phenomenal array of hardware at his disposal, estrato aurora has dreamt up a beautiful deep techno ep for us. 4 tracks that can be played during sub-heavy warm-up duties, deep into the night for a heads-down foggy vibe or early in the morning for something a bit warmer, tripping and uplifting. timeless cuts to suit all intimate dance floors. 12- release. artwork by philip mitton. 320 hand-numbered copies.
shrunken heads” is something we were just kicking around at the time the label was starting to take shape, we felt it to be a good narrative of our influences and visions of how we see acrylic taking shape in the future. kid drama has kindly put together a killer remix for us to celebrate the labels beginning. he has been a massive inspiration for us all musically over the years and we are very humbled to have him on board with the first output. thanks hugely damon for taking time out of your schedule to do that. “motion design” came together fairly quickly, it was made with intent to homage the sound of the old guard we admire to o er our own contribution to that sound. all vinyl are strictly limited edition, and limited to 300 pieces per run. there will never be a repressing of any series. once each release is gone, they are gone forever. mastered and cut by beau at teneightseven. artwork and design by dave knapton at multiplex

lootbeg is no stranger to releasing quality music. with notable releases on crow castle cuts and o*rs he also finds time to act as label head for -a friend in need-. the travel to planet trance is being played monthly at sensu s club night at sub club in glasgow, such is the allure of the melodic pensiveness of the lead track. cydonia mensae offers a similar feel for those looking for something a little more stripped back. on the bside eupen lends a groovier house option before things get a little harder and darker with relate.
surveyor mode delivering new original material on the resopal mother label and setting standards with their unique techno style. the dark brooding atmospheres of their first 12- ep -palacina- is setting the mood of this release with prodigious and strangely affecting sounds that seem to filter straight out of a machine-driven future. -oak island- has a techno percussive hiss that keeps a deep, modern underground feel. -valerie anne- features a layered, robotic vocal. finally, -metaclear- surprises again with a pounding techno groove and a bittersweet synth melody. played and supported already by m_nus enter team, joseph capriati
smith & mudd are back in fine style on claremont 56, following up their excellent lp with this great double header! >sauna love< is the lead track, an uptempo, string laden boogie house affair with great vibes, bass, strings and punchy percussion all rolling along into the sunshine. on side-b >the surveyor< is a great piece of otherworldly electronic music, coming on like some weird cough medicine induced dream. the bass pulses along with mystery dialogue, light key flourishes and an intent that is delivered about 5 minutes in when the kick drops and the whole thing shifts into a latenight, alt disco bomb.
crotocosm is an occasional collaboration between jordan gcz (lushlyfe, off minor) and willie burns (black deer, wt records). tracks were recorded together live in amsterdam and brooklyn between 1996 and 2017 its a tip!

phono ghosts (alias of producer neil scrivin - also behind meatbingo) returns with his long-awaited second album released via brand new imprint fonolith. building upon the cassette-raiding, micro-sampling methodology and varied sound landscape of 2013’s chrome position on skam records, solar dream reel is a journey through summery funk, mangled radio jingles, evocative atmospheres and anthemic edit-stomp, all filtered via the shimmery analogue lens of the compact cassette. a sonic exploration of that borderland between the waking world and sleep - a place everyone has been to but few remember - phono ghosts comes back to reality with a selection of vivid polaroids and cassette memories from his visits to the hypnagogic hinterland of the collective unconscious and presents these pure distilled documents for you on four beautiful sides of vinyl. something may have come back with him...
