Following the release of Reflections EP on Spectral Sound, Canadian producer Nautiluss takes to the Inverted Audio mix series with a vinyl mix straight off the cuff. Warmth and vibrancy in abundance, this is something you want while the sun spends its day hugging the horizon.
After making quite a splash with the widely praised inaugural transmission of the T.O.K.Y.O series, released via his own eponymous imprint two years ago, mysterious producer S.O.N.S is back with the just as massive ‘Shinjuku One Night Stand’ – a six-track double pack larded with acidic salvos, augmented jungle moves and irruptive laser-battle gunnery.
Asymmetrical ‘Banging In The Haze‘ is a dusty jam brimming with raw hi-hats twirling along acidic synths. Marking the transition from a busy night to the caressing light of dawn, a celestial and smooth melody takes over darkness and deploys its wings towards welcoming lo-fi house lands; still exuding a metallic aftertaste of down-pitched breaks, muffled drums and magnetic bleeps.
Jimmy Billingham’s new effort ‘Trace Realm‘ is just as much of an introspective journey as it offers more expressive, outgoing combinations. Brushing a vibrant mosaic brimming with chopped-up keyboard chords and volatile acid-drenched arpeggios, the Rephlex vibe is here and banging, summoning the ghosts of Bochum Welt and Dave Monolith without striking the old-school-savvy pose.
