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.

Ziúr: ATØ

Berlin-based experimentalist, futurist and producer Ziúr returns to Planet Mu with her second album ‘ATØ’ – a portal to worldwide change, it is as vibrant as the unapologetic and unwavering musical landscape of Berlin.

Meemo Comma: Sleepmoss

Lara Rix-Martin marks her first album release on Planet Mu with an eerie ode to the changing seasons on ‘Sleepmoss’. Awash with field recordings and natural ambient tones, Sleepmoss sets a new precedence for Rix-Martin’s work as an artist and her role as commentator to the winds and rain.

Joy O: Slipping

Joy O returns with a quiet confidence to Hinge Finger with Slipping EP – an intoxicating brush with dubstep and house, whilst running with an endearing personal touch.

Even Tuell: Workshop 27

Workshop 27 marks Even Tuell’s first solo outing in 5 years and maintains the enigmatical, emotionally drenched leftism house that has elevated Workshop above much of the mediocrity.

Barker: Utility

Ostgut Ton follow up their release of Barker’s sterling ‘Debiasing’ EP with an album brim-filled with rich and organic masterpieces that shun industrial stereotypes and elude categorisation.

Tala Drum Corps

Showing off his knack for carving out lushly nuanced, immersive alien ambiences, Tala Drum Corps lays down a mix full of post-nu agey ’90s synthetic lustre, oddball ambient house dynamics and further leftfield acid divagations.

Aisha Devi: S.L.F.

Devi here offers some interesting updates on her earlier ideas: while ‘DNA Feelings’ set up a calmer, static kind of motion tied with bold storytelling qualities, ‘S.L.F.’ finds her confidently revving up the engines onto further club-friendly horizons.
