Chase Smith - Sending You Some Lungs
Sat 30 Dec 2017 | permalink
Like the Z.I.P.P.O & Hiver EP US producer Chase Smith gives us a range of styles across the four tracks of his new EP Sending You Some Lungs, including Techno, Acid House and Synth Pop. The title track is the standout with a woozy chorus that sound like Jarvis Cocker.
Out now on the Irish label Apartment Records.
Inigo Kennedy & Sigha - Minor Ascent
Fri 1 Dec 2017 | permalink
There's many standout moments on Momentum, the new compilation from Token, who celebrate 10 years in business with a series of collaborations. Minor Ascent is the highlight for me though, which sees Inigo Kennedy pair up with Sigha, to produce a fine balance of Techno and IDM.

Belief Defect - No Future
Mon 6 Nov 2017 | permalink
I keep returning to the album Decadent Yet Depraved from Belief Defect, an anonymous duo who make extremely satisfying Industrial Techno in various shapes and sizes. No Future is a fine example of their work, with shadows of Anthony Rother and Instra:Mental's own track of the same name (perhaps a subtle reference to the identity of this pair?). If you've still not checked it out, don't delay!
Steffi - The Meaning of Memory
Thu 26 Oct 2017 | permalink
Steffi's third solo album World Of The Waking State is a real triumph; one of those releases that contain no duff tracks, my favourite.
The Meaning of Memory is the perfect example of the overall laidback vibe you'll hear across the ten tracks. Highly recommended.
Out now on Ostgut Ton.
Wnimanie - Locura Harmonica
Fri 29 Sep 2017 | permalink
Wnimanie is Russian for "attention" and the debut EP from this young experimental Russian producer certainly demands it. Inspired from all angles, from Pink Floyd to Techno, Eindringlinge ventures into far-reaching territories, with a mish-mash of styles. There's ear-puncturing bass on opening track First Take, delightful acid bleeping on Locura Harmonica, a blend of Ambient and processed guitar on Eindringlinge and some wacked-out strings on Violin Jam.
Released by Firering, the fledgling label run by Åmnfx, their innovative approach involves recycling cassettes, adding an authentic layer of real life to the music. Eindringlinge comes with a folding booklet/poster made by London based graphic artist Emma Volodchinskaya.
Antwoord - Don't Go
Wed 20 Sep 2017 | permalink
I'll be honest, I'm not the biggest fan of Antwoord but when there's a stunning visual narrative attached to some otherwise derivative music, I'm happy to listen again.
