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.

Vester Koza: loader mither

Vester Koza’s debut album on Houndstooth takes an intriguing look back over the nineties dance music scene. You may not think that statement alone is particularly unusual, however the IDM slant of ‘loader mither’ sets itself apart from other retrospectively minded works that mine the strait-laced tropes of the era.

Objekt: Cocoon Crush

‘Cocoon Crush’ pushes the boundaries of experimentation even further than his previous releases did, and that without ever falling in self-referentialism or redundancy. Speaking of what goes on across ‘Cocoon Crush’ may be quite a challenge at times for the reason that – as happens with the most futuristic forms of art – what’s on display here is new to the extent that a new lexicon would be required.

Crave: Loco

Pursuing his transgressive dismantlement and reshaping of current hip-hop and trap motifs as seen from a proto-technoid perspective – fitting somewhere betwixt the growingly influential legacy of the chopped-and-screwed sound of the Memphis and Houston rap scenes and Merzbow at his most savage, French producer Crave does it again on his new EP ‘Loco’ for Mind Records.

Posthuman: Mutant City Acid

Posthuman deliver some of their finest work to date with ‘Mutant City Acid’ LP. Created as a soundtrack to a mythical dystopia called New Reno City, the album is replete with nods to ’80s and ’90s computer gaming and sci-fi including Fallout, Bladerunner and Ian M. Banks.

Bibio: Phantom Brickworks IV & V

A year on and Stephen Wilkinson aka Bibio picks up from where he left off, unearthing two unheard cuts from the Phantom Brickworks sessions, offered up in the form of a deluxe limited edition photo-book and extended player.
