Pelada: Movimiento Para Cambio

Following two excellent EPs on Canadian imprint New, ‘Movimiento Para Cambio’ marks Pelada’s debut album – serving up a smorgasbord of rave synths, acid basslines and breakbeat steeped in political connotations.

OL: Dismeteo

Russian producer Ol steps up on LA-based imprint Motion Ward with seven deeply absorbing tracks that ride the line between ambient and dub techno, creating a coherent microverse of leftfield electronics.

Bambounou: Whities 021

‘Whities 021’ in its effervescent minimalism and steadiness is more meditative and regular compared to some of Bambounou’s quirkier, flashier and club-ready works, a kind of surprising and counterintuitive move considered that Whities is certainly not a label afraid of pushing the boundaries of experimentation.

Perko: NV Auto

Perko’s ‘NV Auto’ sounds fresh in a way that’s somehow true to the Glaswegian label’s DNA and has consistent elements for it to be considered one of this year’s finest debut releases.

Objekt: Cocoon Crush

‘Cocoon Crush’ pushes the boundaries of experimentation even further than his previous releases did, and that without ever falling in self-referentialism or redundancy. Speaking of what goes on across ‘Cocoon Crush’ may be quite a challenge at times for the reason that – as happens with the most futuristic forms of art – what’s on display here is new to the extent that a new lexicon would be required.

Forest Drive West: Apparitions

Following two extended players on Livity Sound in 2017, plus a string of equally solid releases on Hidden Hawaii, Rupture, Appian Sound and Dnuos Ytivil, London-based producer Forest Drive West steps up to deliver his debut long player on Peverelist’s iconic Bristol-based record label.

Various Artists: Kulør 001

Composed of some of Copenhagen’s most promising techno producers including IBON, Schacke, Sugar, Repro, Rune Bagge and Funeral Future, ‘Kulør 001’ is the inaugural compilation from Courtesy’s new record label, Kulør – whose name literally translates to ‘Colour’.
