Shlohmo: The End

Shlohmo’s third album is an elevation of his mood-driven beats from beyond the realm of introspective headphone listening, to a level of gravitas and urgency that demands a larger space than your skull to reverberate into.

Smallpeople: Afterglow

Smallpeople deliver gorgeous bridges between lofty house and vibrant dance floor burners, a way to celebrate life, providing give-a-toss who’s watching me dance music.

MATstudio: MATstudio 1

It is no surprise that the latest release in Melody As Truth’s catalogue comes from Jonny Nash and Suzanne Kraft, two producers who have steadily grown closer and closer together in their sound since the label’s start.

Kilchhofer Anklin: Moto Perpetuo

‘Moto Perpetuo’ tends to blur the lines between musical composition and studio production. By crafting pieces that rely on the entire stereo field, Kilchhofer Anklin rewards close listening.

Gunnar Haslam: Cacique De Poyais

What links and unifies so many of Haslam’s releases, including this one, is the ability to cultivate hypnotism – an ethos that has resonated throughout the catalogue of Delsin over the years.

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.

Bambounou: Whities 021

‘Whities 021’ in its effervescent minimalism and steadiness is more meditative and regular compared to some of Bambounou’s quirkier, flashier and club-ready works, a kind of surprising and counterintuitive move considered that Whities is certainly not a label afraid of pushing the boundaries of experimentation.

Adam Emil + Slim Hustla: Travellers EP

Following Harrison BDP’s and Jesse Bru’s excellent extended players on Piff Records, Bristol-based imprint shines again courtesy of Adam Emil and Slim Hustla arriving in fine style contributing the label’s fifth release.

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.
