Always keen on exploring the most baroque and outlandish facets of electronic music, Edinburgh label Firecracker Recordings have found the perfect applicant to complement their many-sided catalogue
Veiled under the name of Les Graciés, Paris-based sound artist Gaël Segalen and half of the Deepblak core Afrikan Sciences break down cultural barriers to pull an unique and cohesive output off their own singular heritages. After honing their skills for four years the pair is eventually taking the leap of releasing their longed-for debut joint effort ‘Low Doses‘, due out on Lindsay Todd’s Firecracker Recordings on 25th October.
Fett Burger and Luca Lozano teaming up again, Madteo back with the christening release of his eponymous label, edit-sensei Mori Ra killing it with another batch of top-class revamps, Lee Gamble stepping up on UIQ for the first time… May got our processors on overheat! Here’s our monthly compilation.
Jimmy Billingham’s new effort ‘Trace Realm‘ is just as much of an introspective journey as it offers more expressive, outgoing combinations. Brushing a vibrant mosaic brimming with chopped-up keyboard chords and volatile acid-drenched arpeggios, the Rephlex vibe is here and banging, summoning the ghosts of Bochum Welt and Dave Monolith without striking the old-school-savvy pose.
