The Trilogy Tapes Store NYC

Spaces is a new series in which we visit the clubs, record shops and cultural spaces that are making waves in our scene. First up, we take a look back at the now closed pop-up The Trilogy Tapes Store in New York. Click on for a video and photos of the store.

Alessandro Adriani: Embryo EP

To be so consistently productive in a small enclave of stylistically dark music and still return music worthwhile listening to is a mark of quality in Adriani’s work.

UVB76: SĀN

Ticking all boxes and more, the debut full-length offering from Russia-via-Brittany based duo UVB76 comes as a warning to the creatively worn-out 4/4 purists and stale-minded heads: future lies in the hybrid and the unpure, the bastardized and the non-eugenic ; future is a cross-bred dog howling at the moon.

Bibio: Ribbons

Bibio’s tenth album is a collection of pretty things, a box of treasures and faded photographs that softly trace the outlines of a rare and precious musical vision.

Logos: Imperial Flood

Over the course of 9 bleak tracks ‘Imperial Flood’ carves something of a tense horror mystery…each track is poised at the precipice of being club-ready, yet slyly avoiding it. One little nudge would be enough: this LP is a weapon in the hands of a shrewd DJ, but an enigma to a less-capable one.

Basil Kirchin: Worlds Within Worlds

Wanna get weird? How about a supremely immersive and psyched-out early 70s masterpiece featuring spacey concrète-esque drones, manipulated bird noises and wild, Ayler-on-a-speed-bender free jazz instrumentation? …Sure!

Trudge: 100

Packed with the assets of an instant classic for fans of these sounds, ‘100‘ portrays an artist who doesn’t just have big ideas, but clearly knows how to execute them with flawless precision.

Conforce: Haedron EP

Haedron EP marks Bunnik’s twelfth release on Delsin, reflecting the consistency and ability synonymous with his output.

Liquid Soap: Naja Warfare EP

Naja Warfare captivates as much as it dazzles, innervating its tried-and-tested 4/4 dynamics with glowing elements of sci-fi heroics and forward-thinking, off-piste engineering.

Bibio: Ribbons

Bibio’s tenth album is a collection of pretty things, a box of treasures and faded photographs that softly trace the outlines of a rare and precious musical vision.

Apron TV with Kyle Hall and Max Graef aka Ratgrave

Dean Blunt collaborator Lord Tusk gets up close and hazy with Max Greaf, who talks up his recent album and collaboration with Julius Conrad as Ratgrave – Graef also presents the music video for ‘El Schnorro’. Kyle Hall steps up next to discuss selfies, laptop DJ’s, MySpace and Star Wars.

Music Video: Eliott Litrowski – Schmock Machine

Enter a world of digital madness and learn to dissolve your real-world fleshly carcass in Camille Doussy’s hyper-deep pool of pixelated FX layers, faux-organic laces and screwed-up 3D rendering. Next level mind-bender.

Music Video: Yves Tumor – Noid

The video depicts Sean Bowie being arrested and assaulted by police officers on the streets of downtown Los Angeles, raising the widespread issue of police brutality in the USA.

Best Music Videos of 2018

To mark our final end of year list, we have searched high and low for the very best music videos of 2018.

Music Video: Landon Speers – Wild Rose – “II”

Such magic is undoubtedly at work in today’s visual premiere. The footage set to ‘II’, a cut from Landon Speers’ exploratory ambient record ‘Wild Rose’, is not as much a music video as it is a kind of visual poem, its wordless meaning made audible in the achingly soft tones of Speers’ poignant composition.

Into the world of Benedikt Rugar

Benedikt Rugar is the brilliant illustrator behind some of Berghain's flyers and countless numbers of art pieces for Cocktail d'Amore, RBMA and others. We caught up with the Berlin-based artist to discuss pen magic, current musical favourites and his recent magnum opus for Bangkok's Beam Club.
