Stenny: Upsurge

Stenny’s debut full-length ‘Upsurge’ has the pedigree to stand proudly amongst the past years’ most accomplished long-players.

Peak & Swift: Floppy EP

Peak & Swift’s debut extended player is excitingly brave in contrast with Berlin’s sometimes straightforward sonic paradigm.

Pelada: Movimiento Para Cambio

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.
