Coco Bryce: Beats Like This

Beats Like This is a rehash of a ’90s sound, but like the best bits of modern jungle, it shows that the genre’s golden era came and left too soon.

Acronym: Mistress of the Copper Mountain

Acronym has long been more than worthy of attention, and now with Stilla Ton further cementing the reputation there’s all the more reason to watch: he has another outlet to release music through.

Gaunt: She’s No Patsy

Not So Much only rears its head occasionally, but each time it pops up with something weirder than the usual fare gripped in its teeth. The latest offering goes to show not only that Gaunt is stepping into stride, but also that Not So Much remains worth keeping an eye out for, however long we have to keep ’em peeled.

Kasper Marott: ​Forever Mix EP

Following on from Kulør’s thunderous VA debut that concentrated on the accelerated, powerhouse sounds of the Stockholm’s techno scene, this release sees the focus shift to the more softer side of the scene that is perhaps sometimes unfortunately overlooked.

Alessandro Adriani: Morphic Dreams

Following from the ‘Embryo’ EP, Adriani unleashes his full album, delving deeper into the conceptual constructs introduced on the precursor with analogue formations blessed by Adriani’s highly developed taste for pace and friction.

People Plus: Third Space

Drawing inspiration from a Marilyne Blais painting hanging in their studio, People Plus’ Third Space EP is an ambitious exercise in synth-funk synesthetics.

Mani Festo + LMajor: Club Glow Vol​.​2

Borai & Denham Audio crack open the neon “Club Glow” tin for the sophomore release – this time Mani Festo and label family LMajor turn in a full albums-worth of material each, burning up each side of the tape with the same energy as that which set the debut on fire.

Zamilska: Uncovered

Thematically Uncovered is a veneration of mother nature’s destructive and creative power laced with a sense of trepidation over man’s ever-arrogant encroachment on her sovereignty.

Yagya: Stormur

Aðalsteinn ‘Steini’ Guðmundsson, better known now as Yagya has become a leading proponent of deep, atmospheric electronics and ambient dubby techno. ‘Stormur’ steps further into dance floor territory with the origins of the album hailing, rather unpredictably, from the artist’s 40th birthday.

Robert ÆOLUS Myers: Talisman

Robert ÆOLUS Myers, a resident of Hawaii since the mid-70s whose island-tinged electroacoustic meditations were the subject of a compilation from Aloha Got Soul in 2017. Now the fine folk at Origin Peoples are having a crack, and they’re bringing added firepower with them in the form of a live recording and clutch of remixes.

No Moon: Where Do We Go From Here?

Manchester’s No Moon is tapped for 3 innovative cuts of electro-infused floor shakers on a hyper-relevant disc for 2019’s sound; a tasteful amalgam weaving restlessly between deep house, acid, breakbeat and electro.

Varg: Sky City Part 1 & 2

Varg clearly remains one of the standout producers around today, regardless of his chosen field of action. ‘Sky City’ is just another (thoroughly well-executed) underlining of this – a flourish or a stark challenge to those treading the beaten-down path.

Tala Drum Corps: Parade

With over half a decade of intuitive navigation across the meanders and blind channels of the European underground, it’s safe to say we owe Den Haag’s BAKK quite a few musical epiphanies and moments of utter listening joy, and the Dutch label’s latest, ‘Parade’, courtesy of the much promising Tala Drum Corps, comes as an affirmation of the triple-headed imprint’s talent-spotting qualities.

DJ Nate: Take Off Mode

The scene will never be the same with the loss of so many legends as of late, but after a brief scrape with death himself, DJ Nate goes back to the beginning and proves the saying that “constant repetition carries conviction.”

Amon Tobin: Fear In A Handful Of Dust

After an extended break Amon Tobin returns on his newly created imprint Nomark with the less ambitious, but nonetheless compelling, ‘Fear In A Handful Of Dust’ LP.
