OL: Dismeteo

Russian producer Ol steps up on LA-based imprint Motion Ward with seven deeply absorbing tracks that ride the line between ambient and dub techno, creating a coherent microverse of leftfield electronics.

King Midas Sound: Solitude

This record is the antithesis of glamourized pop abstractions about romance that don’t hold true today, if they ever did. This is, the turning of a man inside out.

Best Extended Players of 2018

Following the publication of our Best Albums of 2018 we now turn our attention to the trusty format of the 12-inch extended player.

Caroline Lethô

A well-known figure in Lisbon’s ever effervescent underground scene, Portuguese DJ and producer Caroline Lethô dishes out a pulsating mix of laser-guided breaks, droney tech vibrations, 303-marinated electro and further leftfield-leaning oddities.

Various Artists: Lost Transmissions From The Off​-​World Territories

Glasgow based Invisible Inc. celebrate their twentieth release with a proper labour of love. Not content with just compiling a selection of excellent other worldly cosmic variations,  Invisible have pulled together an impressive roster of musicians including Laraaji, Malcolm Cecil (as Tonto’s Expanding Head Band), K. Leimer and Richard Bone.

Jan Jelinek: Zwischen

Made by and featuring none other than strictly human sounds, warped and deconstructed until it falls in that uncanny valley of dissociative humanism. Jan Jelinek’s latest album ‘Zwischen’ can be considered an exercise in learning to find enjoyment and/or contentment in the intellectual and physical limitations of the human mind and body.

Nathan Fake: Sunder

There is much to be said for not over producing and recording live to tape – yet regardless of the work process, it’s the final outcome that matters most and in this case it has served “Sunder” and our ears magnificently.

Grimwig

A mesmeric trip down memory lane, this one will immerse you in a world of stunning textural pieces, extended dub stretches and further leftfield tribal-like oddities; the ideal fit to the strange atmosphere of wintery days in the countryside. We sat back with Marionette label boss Ali Safi aka Grimwig to discuss his journey, from the imprints first steps through his teamwork with visual artist Jake Fried, onto his plans for the future.
