S.O.N.S: Shinjuku One Night Stand

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.

Johannes Reigner: Hilbert Space Remixes

‘Hilbert Space’ feels like one of those archival discoveries, released low key in the nineties and never dislodged from the collections of those intrepid jocks lucky enough to stumble upon it in some overlooked indie shop. From the second it hits your eardrums it sounds well-worn with warm familiarity, yet not over saturated through pastiche.

Premiere: Glass Figure – Nowhere

Vocoder blazing and synth arpeggios glancing off, the Drexciyan title-track whizzes at mega light speed like a space-traveling vessel flashes across fields of asteroids, in search for a new planet to colonise. You’re in for a treat.

Premiere: Javi Redondo – Narcotic Luv

Back on Jennifer Cardini’s label with ‘Hammocks Go West’, a three-track cosmic epic giving full vent to an infectious solution of quirky disco grooves, raucous technoid modulations and straight up funky staccato riffs, Redondo demonstrates the extent of his production skills with an ever-bold take on club functionality. Stream the italo-inflected ‘Narcotic Luv’ within.

Karamika: BAU002

Here we find Karamika continuing their chaotic exploration of raw, obsessive kraut and industrial motifs. Like walking the last corridor to the big boss’ dungeon in a vintage platform game, it’ll leave you both excited to outdo your own egotistic self and afraid at getting back to the real world. Get strange.

Hotel Lauer: Lauer & Lauer

Remarkably enough, the music of sibling duo Hotel Lauer has taken a further trancey turn with the ecstasy-seeking ‘Lauer & Lauer’, their first outing on Stuart Leath’s ever-inspired [Emotional] Especial. Sharing a similar cold wave’y approach to synth melodies doped on beefy electro-bass tubes and crisp, compressed kicks, their sound gained a sheer rave energy and magnitude.

Soulomon reflects on Magnetic Archive

As the release of his debut instalment for newborn Italian label New Interplanetary Melodies comes closer, we caught up with Soulomon to discuss the long-coming release of his 3-track EP and sound evolution. Stream ‘Magnetic Archive’ within.

DBRM: Faction

With Radioactive Man and dBridge picking up their DBRM alias again over on Craig Richards’ The Nothing Special, it is the sound clash of two very different styles that makes this game all the more intriguing.

2030: Prescience EP

Back with a third offering for French label CLFT, Italian producer Nico Campanella aka 2030 reloads the mother ship’s cannons with nerve and acumen, attractively summoning the ghosts of Drexciya, Galaxy 2 Galaxy and Der Zyklus for a timeproof, space-traveling treat.

Multi Culti – The Sound of the Universe

Whilst the ‘Moon Faze Sun Gaze’ compilation keeps slowly disclosing its treasures, we caught up with Multi Culti head honcho Thomas Von Party to discuss the label’s genre-mangling ethos, strictly limited Cult Box and even went for an in-depth track-by-track headcount. Stream Von Party’s tantric revamp of Manfredas ‘Glasswalk’ within.
