Various Artists: Studio Barnhus Volym 1

Studio Barnhus Volym 1 is a quintessential representation of Studio Barnhus quirky, carefree and joyful sound – nothing less than a treasure for the lovers of the Stockholm label.

Wen: EPHEM:ERA

Wading through more bullshit than Pusha T claiming Pablo Escobar-esque parables and “beef”, while Kanye’s warbling humbleness, really, there aren’t better openings for taunting new music, much like Wen opening up his sophomore album ‘EPHEM:ERA’ with ‘Silhouette’, when he starts fucking around with that Alice Coltrane sample tho… urgh, it’s dutty time.

Arp: Zebra

Arp’s “Zebra” finds New York based artist and producer Alexis Georgopoulos closing the door on vocal led efforts and instead exploring a gloriously indefinable set of instrumentals.

Oneohtrix Point Never: Age Of

Daniel Lopatin has been exploring our technological wasteland for years as Oneohtrix Point Never, but Age Of is definitely where it all comes into focus–this time with a pop slant.

GAS: Rausch

If new album Rausch is music of the forest, it’s a forest existing in the laws of time, physics and narrative found in a Christopher Nolan movie. Where earlier GAS records tethered beats and orchestral samples to a dub techno groove, here the instrumentation often feels like it has been cut away from gravity to orbit erratically through and over the beat.

In The Studio with Efdemin

Following the release of Efdemin’s ‘Naïf’ mix CD on Curle Recordings, our editor-in-chief Tom Durston met up with Phillip Sollmann at his studio in Berlin for a one-on-one discussion about his new mix and the subsequent seven-part series of vinyl that are seeing release through his own imprint Naïf. We also reflect back on his early DJ career, learning the ropes at Pudel Club in Hamburg and his current relationship with Berghain.

DJ Koze: Knock Knock

On his new album, Koze explores a more psychedelic, layered sound palette, with each song sounding even richer than his last album, Amygdala. Knock Knock is like taking a bite of a handcrafted dark chocolate bar–equally bitter and sweet at the same time, a perfect blend of rawness and craft.
