B-Ball Joints: Glass

Two years on since the release of his debut LP as B-Ball Joints on PRR! PRR!, which broke all kinds of fences between frantic proto-tech analogue-isms and muscular EBM motifs, Hallais puts on his lesser-known guise again with ‘Glass’, due out in March on the ever bold and ambitious Mind Records.

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.

Code Walk: Distance

Code Walk’s latest EP disrupts this notion of monosyllabic representation over six tracks of varying emotion, energy and attitude.

Stanley Schmidt: Smart Replies

Released on his and DJ Boring’s imprint Vienna, the record is a formal expression of Schmidt’s creative acumen and a continuation of his flirtation with the golden sounds of yesteryear.

Mikron: Severance

‘Severance’ is an accomplished and compelling listen, exploring twilight territories set in both the past and future, a technique Mikron have perfected here. Once again, that black and white logo and the brothers Corcoran deliver the goods.

Hoover1: Hoover1

Once more touching on the sounds of UK hardcore (most recently via his EP on XL Recordings as the Higher), the amorphous but distinguishable stylings of Shedism are presented to us in a new light.

Lee Gamble: In A Paraventral Scale

‘In A Paraventral Scale’ is the first part of ‘Flush Real Pharynx’, a triptych being released via Hyperdub throughout 2019, accompanied by a new audio-visual live show. According to Gamble, the work is a “sonic documentary”, aiming to explore the “three stages of the Semioblitz” – the aggressive onslaught of visual and sonic stimuli of contemporary cities and virtual spaces.

Silk Road Assassins: State Of Ruin

Silk Road Assassins have unlocked the inherent but underused therapeutic properties of trap and grime production, refined to the point of purity and elevate their value to the point of becoming music that can sit comfortably alongside any contemporary sub-genre of electronica.

FIT Siegel + Kassem Mosse: Saboten

FIT Siegel returns with a highly special, therefore eagerly awaited debut collab with Workshop Records and TTT-affiliated maestro Kassem Mosse.

Howes: Cold Storage

‘Cold Storage’ is free-form and experimentalist, the sound of an artist exploring his tools and their exponential capabilities. It rarely feels random or unconsidered, just weird, cryptic and beautiful.

cv313: Glass City Sessions

There is genuinely nothing lacking in this double 12”; listeners of any ilk will appreciate the sonic magnetism as well as Hitchell’s uncannily harmonious relationship with his equipment.

Pom Pom: Untitled II

Untitled II’, is a subtle trip deeper into what makes Pom Pom tick. Essentially a direct sequel to ‘Untitled’, this LP is a black hole that you don’t see ahead of you until you’ve slipped into the event horizon.

Perko: NV Auto

Perko’s ‘NV Auto’ sounds fresh in a way that’s somehow true to the Glaswegian label’s DNA and has consistent elements for it to be considered one of this year’s finest debut releases.

Deeat Palace: KSX

Taking on her Deeat Palace guise again after releasing her debut extended player on Mind Records in February, Marion Camy Palou returns to treat us to one of her signature stormy, malevolent hybrids of post-apocalyptic atmospheres, bleeding riffs and blazing electronics.

Oceanic: Live At De School

‘Live at De School’ is a provoking LP that sets an excitement for where Oceanic can push things musically and what De Nieuw will capture from within De School’s walls in the near future.
