Best Extended Players of 2019

Following the release of the Best Albums of 2019, we now turn our attention to the trusty format of the EP, drilling down what we consider to be the Best Extended Players of 2019.

Clark: Branding Problem

Warp aficionado Chris Clark sets club focus to new extremes on his latest extended player ‘Branding Problem’, released through his own label Throttle Records.

Shed: Oderbruch

Whilst the atypical sonics of Shed and related pseudonyms can be easily identified, his new album ‘Oderbruch’ on Ostgut Ton makes for a paradox.

Stenny: Upsurge

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

A.dixen: Death Tapes Vol.2

Made to be experienced as a whole rather than broken down for its stand-out parts, Death Tapes Vol.2 creates an enveloping feeling of airiness and soothing serenity over the course of its twelve finely woven units, balancing the scopic width of its sound design with sharp junglistic onslaughts and full-out breaksy moves bound to make a lasting impact both on and off the dance floor.

Sleep D: Rebel Force

Something special seems to be happening on Anthony Naples and Jenny Slattery’s Incienso imprint. While there is little committed to the internet in terms of label ethos–very much ‘a let the music do the talking’ approach–there is certainly a strong synergy amongst a diverse set of releases.
