Listen to the last ten ‘tunes of the moment’
Joe Goddard - Pull The Plug (feat. Kool Keith)
Fri 8 Mar 2019 | permalink
New EP Pull The Plug sees the sometime Hot Chipper Joe Goddard firmly shake his Electro music maker with very pleasant results. Furthermore, the title track, featuring Kool Keith, is all shades of cool.
Out on Optimo Music offshoot label Against Fascism Trax.
Modeselektor - Who (feat. Tommy Cash)
Wed 27 Feb 2019 | permalink
Surely nobody expects refinement or subtlety from Modeselektor? Good, then nobody will be complaining about how wonderfully big and brash this track is?
Who, featuring Estonian rapper and conceptual artist Tommy Cash, doesn't mess around. In contrast to the opening thumping drum, which literally sounds like your speakers are rattling, the cartoony vocals kick in and you're soon singing along! Winner.
MATRiXXMAN & Bauernfeind - No Rush
Wed 6 Feb 2019 | permalink
Techno meets Trance and they live happily ever after.
The 7th Plain - I Think I Think Too Much
Sat 19 Jan 2019 | permalink
I Think I Think Too Much is one of the more tender, Ambient outings from Luke Slater's recent brace of reissues as The 7th Plain. The two new albums of reissues, Chronicles II and Chronicles III, follow the excellent first compilation from 2016, and play together like a "best of", comprising back catalogue releases (from albums My Yellow Wise Rug and The 4 Cornered Room) along with many rare and unreleased gems.
Posthuman - Once Was
Thu 20 Dec 2018 | permalink
Acid done properly, that's the new Posthuman album Mutant City Acid. And while there's many strong tracks to choose from, Once Was is my pick, with its catchy vocal snippet, and polite nod to early nineties Electronica. If Boards of Canada did Acid, it would sound as blissful as this.
E-Talking - Telephone Rose
Tue 4 Dec 2018 | permalink
E-Talking is French artist Emmanuel Corre, one half of French duo Nummer, and he shares this release on Whities with UK producer Laksa.
Dead Man's Chest & Thugwidow - Sleepless on Venus
Thu 15 Nov 2018 | permalink
The London-based label and club Rupture, run by Double O and Mantra, have launched a new series of releases called The Planets. A year in the making, the series celebrates all the
Junglist titans who inhabit the Rupture universe.
Next in the series is Mercury, with Sully x Outer Heaven, and future releases will come from Rumbleton, Response X Pliskin, Gremlinz x Jesta, Theory, Double O, The Untouchables, Seba, Om Unit, J Robinson, Sonars Ghost, Djinn, Forest Drive West and more.
Lone - Blue Moon Tree
Fri 2 Nov 2018 | permalink
Lone rounds off his Ambivert Tools EP series with one of his most addictive, catchiest tunes yet.
Ancient Methods - Walking On Cursed Soil (feat. Prurient)
Thu 11 Oct 2018 | permalink
The Jericho Records is one hell of a stomping, cardiac-inducing Techno album from Michael Wollenhaupt aka Ancient Methods and the track Walking On Cursed Soil (feat. Prurient) is one of many highlights.
The Field - Made Of Steel, Made Of Stone
Thu 27 Sep 2018 | permalink
Opening track from the new album Infinite Moment is a beauty. Made Of Steel, Made Of Stone transforms the elements anyone familiar with The Field's previous work will recognise, like the manipulated female vocal loop, and filters them through a kind of Ambient process. And while there's still a steady accompanying rhythm, the result is a monumental slab of dreamy, emotive escapism.
