I'm happy to report that Theresa Stroetges'Golden Diskó Ship project continues to receive attention, I felt her Araceae album from last year flew under the mainstream radar. Performance artist Anja Ibsch has made a video for Limping over the Prairies, playing on themes of environmental change, where natural beauty has morphed into something quite unrecognisable and sinister.

Maelstrom - Lithium
French producer and RAAR label head Joan-Mael Péneau, aka Maelstrom, has contributed a blinding cut for the second volume of Cititrax: Tracks on Minimal Wave, sporting a decisive kick and emotive bleeping synths.

Yotam Avni - Untitled A1
I love the deep Jazzy House crossover vibe on this new Untitled track from Yotam Avni, the first in a new series. When the clarinet (or whatever) comes in around four minutes, its star quality bursts through.

Visionist - Form
New track Form from Visionist's new album A Call To Arms (out next week on Mute) is the first graced with his own singing voice, and it's lovely stuff. Striking video too!

Emika - The Anti Universe
First new material from Emika in a trilogy of forthcoming releases called Vega, marries punchy Techno rhythms with a spoken word monologue, framed in a Sci-fi guise.
Celebrating ten years since her debut self-titled album, Vega will contain some reimagined versions of classic tracks from her Ninja Tune catalogue, (like Professional Loving) as well collaborations with Horace Andy from Massive Attack and Rødhåd, among others.

Yilan & Ren - Niffler
Addictive rhythms in slow-motion from the UK producers Yilan & Ren on Niffler, taken from Suddenly I Am Falling, the former's second EP for Infinite Machine, has a Dub Reggae swagger to it that's intoxicating and destructive. (The rest of the EP ain't too bad either).

Garbage - La Fraicheur
Driving rhythms with an emotive and contentious vocal sample on this new track from La Fraicheur, taken from forthcoming Tabula Rasa EP on Lobster Theremin.

Scarlit Port - Layla's Acid
Acid, Jungle and Electro mash-up from Scarlit Port causing havoc from every angle.
It's the closing track from the recent Cold Readings EP on brkntys also featuring ΠΕΡΑ ΣΤΑ ΟΡΗ, Foreign Sequence, Shokh and Weith. Well worth checking out.
And if you weren't aware, they've got a special subscriber offer that gives you all their back catalogue releases plus all future releases for the next year, for a miserly £20. Honestly, what can you get for £20 these days? It's a no-brainer.

Emerging talent Lorenzo Filippin, aka Italian electronic musician Filippin, has teamed up with Irish singer Runah, on new song Disgrace, which channels the Pop goodness of Sophie Ellis-Bextor to great effect.
