Over the past 12 months we have overindulged in a vast array of consistently on-point long players from artists both new and old. As with tradition we have compiled what we believe to be the best albums of 2019.
Today Demdike Stare, the production outfit of Sean Canty and Miles Whittaker, surprise released a nine-track double pack named ‘Passion‘ via Modern Love. The release marks the duos first
Over the years Philippe Hallais aka Low Jack has quickly become a key player in the realm of off-kilter techno and boundary-pushing electronics. A few weeks ago he released his new album on Modern Love, ‘An American Hero’ featuring a special string of short videos by visual artist Ethan Assouline. We caught up with both artists to discuss this nascent collaboration.
From Low Jack’s massive new LP on the ever-vanguard Modern Love to DJ Slyngshot’s debut effort out of the Yappin circle for the newborn Place No Blame, onto Suzanne Kraft’s summer-flavored ‘DJ Safety Track’ for Stuttgart’s finest Kitjen, there’s been full flocks of nuggets flying aplenty. Here’s our recap.
Low Jack’s albums have never been meant for easy listening or straight up club use, instead unchaining from any pre-conceived system or unwanted labelling. This debut outing for the highly-esteemed Modern Love does not only keep its promises music-wise, it also confirms the French producer as one of the most innovative techno producers out there.
