possession records proudly present the new album by soft riot, entitled -the outsider in the mirrors-. soft riot is the stylised musical alter-ego of jjd, canadian by birth and an ex-resident of london and sheffield, now based in glasgow (so not unfamiliar with sites of post-industrial decay!). with over twenty years of playing in various post-punk and synth-punk bands, he has been crafting the sound of soft riot since the early turn of the decade, releasing a slew of albums across a multitude of labels and touring obsessively around europe and beyond. with -the outsider in the mirrors-, his sixth full-length, he has found a new home for his sound on possession records, a fledgling glasgow imprint founded by jjd, claudia nova (aka hausfrau) and andy brown (ubre blanca). their aim is to bring together their pool of musical talents and provide a more permanent home for their future creative endeavours, whether it be music, video or otherwise and to experiment with what it is to be a -label- in the ever evolving 21st century. future projects and releases will see them getting a select group of their peers and friends involved in possession s focused vision, locally or from further afield.
in the woods there is a bird, his song stops you and makes you blush. (à) and finally, whenever you are hungry and thirsty, theres someone who chases you away (arthur rimbaud) in the woods there is a birdà is both an ongoing sound and publication project by olaf nicolai, published as a contribution to documenta 14 and the documenta 14 radio program. it is based on archival sound material extracted from radio reports, employing radio as a source (rather than a medium of transmission): background sounds of demonstrations, riots, rallies, originally recorded for radio stations all over the world, are used as source material for this soundtrack composed of these various ambiences. the real sounds are defined by a lack of reference that is usually added by the auditive or written indices that surround and date them. the affiliated artist book in the woods there is a birdà reflects not only the process of detaching, mixing, referencing and re-referencing in a visual essay. it also offers for this new composition an index and frames the recorded sounds by presenting a list of the places and dates the events. the artist book in the woods there is a birdàis published by koenig books.
on latino body music vol ii sano continues to explore his musical heritage connecting the dots between tradition and news. for this record he picks up the champeta style that had its origin in the streets of colombia. the mix of repetitive rhythm patterns and chants performed by local legends like hernando hernandez is an integral part of the huge soundsytem culture that takes place in the streets of cartagena. by adding small hints to contemporary western club culture like a classic house piano, or an acid baseline sano reinterprets the tracks for our dancefloors without loosing any of the original hypnotic flavour. the early champeta dances were called therapy and seen as distraction from everyday problems. lets move!
sound does not usually come from a single source. emotions usually do not come from a single source. the way we perceive is by filtering. within this complex process there are many difficulties to overcome and many discoveries to make. how long is the club inside of you - after you have been inside of him? how do love, soup and beer choices affect your daily life? and what do an island and an airport have in common? by morphing real life situations into musical phantasies mr. tophat tries to find answers to these and many other questions. along the way there is darkness but also fun and hope.

SYNTHESIZE THE SOUL: ASTRO-ATLANTIC HYPNOTICA FROM THE CAPE VERDE ISLANDS 1973-1988 (2LP)
2x12" Vinyl UK24.02.17
through 18 diverse tracks, this compilation reveals how immigration from the cape verde islands to europe and the united states gave us an alternate history of the electronic music that dominated hearts and minds across the world in the late 1990s. but the story doesn t start in a major western cultural hub, rather in the small cluster of islands 400 miles off the senegalese coast, and offers an unparalleled insight into the longterm cultural splendor catalyzed by migration. movement and mobility are intrinsic aspirations of the human condition. what we ve come to know as immigration is as old as civilization. yet today we measure immigration through a series of cold data. immigrants are either condemned as disposable threats or celebrated as entrepreneurial treasures, rarely occupying a space in between. seldom do we peer back into the past to examine the tangible and timeless creations born from the movement of peoples, overlooking cultural innovations arguably ahead of their time, precursors to consuming global trends. cape verde today is justifiably hailed as an african political success story, but things were different in the 1980s.

electronic arts pioneer, activist and researcher konrad becker (aka monoton) teams up with vocalist sela for a project with a mission: unveiling operations in a shadow world of mediated realities. linking 21st century technology to ancient communication practices in several directions at once the hypermedia wizard and the young viennese singer celebrate the powers of media over matter. sound becomes a weapon against operation systems of containment and to be buried alive by technologies of symbolic domination. operations not only gives a voice to radical discourse - but basslines and a deep groove.
