In Perspective: Andrei Orlov

We caught up with an unsung herald of the contemporary kosmische and synth pop scene in the person of Moscow-based producer Andrei Orlov to lift a corner of the veil on his craft, away from current trends but close to the core of a timeless genre of electronic music that continues to be a source of fascination.

Sordid Sound System : Fear Eats The Soul

Green Door Studio co-owner and engineer, Stuart Evans, resurfaces his Sordid Sound System moniker for another belter of an EP via Glasgow based Invisible Inc. ‘Fear Eats the Soul’ takes us on a global trip as a concept EP made of “four imaginary bands from Detroit, New York, Paris and Munich”. And the results are as rich in history as they are a satisfying listen.

Ricardo Tobar: Red Sea

Ricardo Tobar takes the chance away from the more listening angled album format to roll out a title track with main room aspirations; yet, while ‘Red Sea’ is the obvious headliner, it is the supporting cast that steal a march. The most earnest welcome back for Tobar, here’s looking forward to more and with the hope of remaining free from the clutches of the torrent scene.

SPACEROCKS: Space Rocks

Glaswegian experimental psych / electronic label Invisible.Inc get proper kosmiche on us with a wigged out 6 tracker from Higamos Hogomos’ Steve Webster. Containing a mixed bag of influences, SPACEROCKS skirts all manner of electronic tropes.

Mixtape: Montezumas Rache & Dominik Von Senger

Montezumas Rache and Dominik Von Senger’s soberly-titled ‘EP’ has a lot to offer with its mind-bending elixir of eerie funk, ambientish tropes and drawn bars of mesmeric kraut grooves. We sat back with the triplet to find out more about their one-off studio session, MZR’s raison d’être and asked them to select some of their most influential cuts.

MR TC

MR TC’s mix gives you a proper taste of the ferocious trancey experience at work in his Night Of The Jaguar residency at Glasgow’s School of Art. You’ve been warned.

Mr TC: Surf & Destroy EP

If C. R. Stecyk, III once contributed the Dogtown legend by sanctifying the now concrete-cast ‘Skate and destroy’ phrase in his famous article for Thrasher magazine, Glaswegian talent Thomas Lea Clarke aka Mr TC opted for aquatic obliteration with his second instalment for JD Twitch’s Optimo Music.

In Perspective: Brain Machine

We caught up with Juan, Guido and Kyle as they discuss the album’s creation and raison d’être, studio battle-gear and all-time Kraut and Kosmische classics. We’re also proud to present the LP opener ‘Alpha Moon’ in full stream – a far-stretching mesmeric scud fueled on stellar synth motifs and a relentless bass comber. Lock in!

Sordid Sound System: Lux Exterior

Mixing dub with the kind of cosmic dance floor work outs you might hear at Sean Johnston and Andy Weatherall’s ‘A Love from Outer Space’, each track features a seemingly effortless piecing together of myriad ideas.
