The return of storied Southern Gothic electronic entity Telefon Tel Aviv is as unexpected as it is impressive. Their three influential albums of the 2000’s (“Fahrenheit Fair Enough”, “Map Of What Is Effortless”, and “Immolate Yourself”) charted an increasingly turbulent and textured vision of post-IDM synthetic songcraft, until the sudden passing of founding member Charlie Cooper in 2009 ceased the project, presumably forever. During the decade since, co-founder Josh Eustis has performed with, produced, mixed, and mastered countless artists, from high-profile institutions (Nine Inch Nails, Puscifer, Apparat) to underground fixtures (Belong, Vatican Shadow, Drab Majesty, Tropic Of Cancer), in addition to his own solo and collaborative work in Sons Of Magdalene and Second Woman. But years of reflection and processing gradually seeded in him a desire to revive TTA and venture a fourth full-length, in the spirit of what they started: “Dreams Are Not Enough”.
The fifth album from Parisian duo Cassius, 20 years since their debut “1999” in err…..1999.
Philippe ‘Zdar’ Cerboneschi and Hubert ‘Boom Bass’ Blanc-Francard return to their original house sound with heavy use of their new Korg synthesizer.
The 6th Flying Lotus album, following 2013’s Grammy nominated “You’re Dead!”.
Features guests Anderson .Paak, George Clinton, Little Dragon, Tierra Whack, Denzel Curry, David Lynch, Shabazz Palaces, Thundercat, Toro y Moi, Solange and more.
Legendary club night Rage started at London’s cavernous Heaven club by Fabio & Grooverider in 1988, channelling acid house energy with new and exciting sounds emanating from Belgium, Amsterdam, Detroit, Sheffield, Essex and Hackney and in turn created a new style, a new sonic attitude and energy in the process. Rumbling bass-lines, narcotic synth rushes and roughly chopped and sped-up breakbeats all merged into a style that we now know as Jungle.
This is the second of 4 parts, in which they delve into their prodigious memories and record boxes to select a true musical representation of the very beginning of one of the UK’s most unique and influential musical movements of the last 50 years. Across 4 2×12 compilations we are taken on the journey through the sounds of RAGE, accompanied with track by track notes from Fabio & Grooverider themselves. This is the sound of the underground, from the inside out.
The Los Angeles-based producer and beatmaker with his 3rd album for Stones Throw.
Influenced by hip-hop and synthesised funk, “Snaxx” is a return to the kind of beatmaking that has gained Mndsgn a large worldwide following.
The combined forces of Kavus Torabi (Gong/ Cardiacs/ Knifeworld/ Guapo), Michael J. York (Coil/Teleplasmiste/Guapo) and ‘Interesting’ Steve Davis (Romford Robot/Ginger Magician/The Nugget) have arrived at no less than a modular driven kosmische colossus of transcendent power enough to drive all talk of green baize firmly into the blue yonder.
It was never any secret that Davis – even at the peak of his household name status in the 1980s – was as happy putting a needle on a vinyl record as anything else involving a cue. What’s more – his music obsession took on new bounds after his retirement from sport in 2016, with his DJ partnership with Torabi taking him to festivals and clubs for many a head-spinning rampage, in which the wide-eyed assembled would be as likely to hear Autechre as Black Sabbath.
The debut album from BABii, produced in conjunction with Adrian Sherwood of On-U Sound.
Electro tinged pop/R&B which features skittering beats and thick, layered synths with heavy bass with a semi industrial feel. The lyrics are dark yet the vocals are sweet.
