CMYK EP (splattered vinyl 12")
Cat: RS 1003SPLATTER. Rel: 28 Jan 22
  1. CMYK (3:41)
  2. Foot Notes (4:44)
  3. I'll Stay (3:42)
  4. Postpone (3:40)
Review: James Blake may have gone on to bigger and better things since CMYK was initially released in 2010, but it remains one of the most significant and consistently impressive EPs in his sprawling catalogue. Effectively the EP that made him one of the most hyped producers of the period, it still sounds great all these years on (and now looks better than ever thanks to a "splattered" vinyl pressing. Highlights include the title track, a wonderfully woozy, post-dubstep chunk of melodic bass music bliss, the jazzier, sub-heavy weight of 'Foot Notes', and the sparse, slow-motion sleaze of 'Postpone'. A classic EP that should be in everyone's record collection.

Review: Formerly one half of the Beesmunt Soundsystem, Luigi BSS comes correct with his first solo EP for Dekmantel. As the title suggests, 'Suikerplein' takes reference and influence from Luigi's hometown Amsterdam, referencing various locations, places and people, all loosely themed with a positive socially minded agenda. Five tracks deep, it builds on his previous releases on the likes of Hivern Disc and Honey Soundsystem with heavy subs and leaden, slo-mo beats all weighted in emotion and atmospheres. Highlights include the industrial weight Kraftwerkian homage 'Domela', the well-oiled machine soul of 'Box' and the soothing Plaid-like acid shower finale 'Scanner'. Fijne dag.

Antidawn (heavyweight vinyl 12" + MP3 download code)

  2. Antidawn (12:52)

  4. New Love (10:02)
  5. Upstairs Flat (6:12)
Review: Burial's first full-length EP since 2012's 'Rival Dealer' hears the South London enigma plunge the depths of his newest dark ambient sound, wrenching the emo essences of rave from their breakbeats to produce a purely ambient affair. Spanning every emotion from depression to triumph, 'Antidawn' opens with a cough, in a seeming nod to the COVID lockdowns of recent years. Meanwhile, disparate sections buzz and weave in and out of one another on 'Shadow Paradise' and 'Strange Neighbourhood', never quite landing on their feet before being whisked away again. One of Burial's most defining world-building works.

  2. Antidawn
  3. Shadow Paradise
  4. New Love
  5. Upstairs Flat
Nothing says "Britain is shit but we do make great music" quite like those rare instances when you get a new Burial release to ponder over. The man, the myth, the mystery, the zeitgeist, anyone who thought the ghosts of garage had been left behind in late-noughties and early-teens best get ready to recognise that, while, Antidawn is very much anything other than that lazy genre term, it still packs the spectre of that atmosphere.

A fact that has to make you start questioning labels in general. There's always been something grittily realist about Burial's work, while at the same time it exists in fantasy worlds parallel to our own. Like wandering through the city at twilight and realising a whole other plane exists, you just never looked for it before, this latest addition to the oeuvre takes all those notions and ups the ambient, resulting in a journey that's textured and direct without ever breaking from a strange, alien serenity that still feels weirdly human.

Disturb Roqe (1-sided 12" + insert)
Cat: NMBRS 65. Rel: 07 Dec 21
  1. Disturb Roqe 2
  2. Disturb Roqe 4
  3. Disturb Roqe 5
Review: Numbers welcome Bristol's experimental artist FFT for this three-piece suite 'Disturb Roqe'. Each one writhing in variation but playing off similar element elements, ingredients and beat patterns, 'Disturb Roqe 2' deftly pokes the electro underbelly with contemporary textures and switches. 'Disturb 4' takes a dubbier route with cavernous space, subverted bleeps and jazzier chords while 'Disturb 5' ups the tempo and brings a little garage-influence skip to the momentum. Disturbingly creative.

X01 (heavyweight vinyl 12")
Cat: XYX 01. Rel: 29 Nov 21
  1. Track 1 (5:48)
  2. Track 2 (6:32)
  3. Track 3 (5:25)
Review: Here's some fresh techno from Intercepts, a new project dropping three slabs of hi-def, immersive club material from three different un-named artists for adventurous souls. 'Track 1' moves at a slower tempo and deals in fractured rhythms, all the better to carry the huge swathes of atmospheric sound design. 'Track 2' rolls with a deceptive discoid funk which contrasts neatly with the looped up Berlin techno-friendly elements. 'Track 3' takes things even further out into experimental - but still rhythmical - territory, marking Intercepts out as a label with a strong sense of adventure and their own distinctive way of merging influences into something which may well tickle your ear drums.

Recognise (12" + insert + MP3 download code)

  1. Recognise (5:32)
  2. Levitate (4:38)
  3. Fade Away (5:06)
  4. Gateway FWD (5:47)
Review: Lord a mercy! Adam Crawford, or the artist previously known as Monir if you want to be formal, follows up last year's 'Secrets' EP with this crucial Voitax debut - 'Recognise'. Once again applying the breaks throughout, there's a stunning sense of tension running throughout as Crawford flips and fuses between techno and some strange 23rd century slo-mo jungle. The opening title track is a devilish statement of intent that hits somewhere between a Denham Audio joint and a classic Tyrant piece before he hits his stride with the dub weight darkness and swinging kicks of 'Levitate', the spacious drama of 'Fade Away' and the straight up breakbeat diesel of 'Gateway FWD'. Witness the fitness.

  5. Max D - "No Snare" (6:05)
  6. The Khan - "Part Of Me (Ode To DC)" (2:47)
Review: Following up releases by the likes of Mark Seven, Florist and Cygnus, Ari Goldman's Washington D.C-based World Building returns with this awesome varioust artist compilation. Neighborhood Watch Volume One features a wide selection of moods and grooves: NativeSun vs JamesBangura get stuck into some dark dubstep on 'Demon Mode' much like The Khan does later on the deeply meditative 'Part Of Me (Ode To DC), while Sami gets their swing on with the classic house of 'Marty & Jack', Juana's tunneling 'It's Low' gives you a dose of heroin house and over on the flip Max D gets deep down and dirty on 'No Snare'.

  2. Dark Lavis (5:11)
  3. 5G Bats (4:28)
Review: Following a fine run of releases on Timedance a few years back, polyrhythmic techno king Samuel Smith has decided to strike out on his own. The talented producer's first single since 2018 is genuinely brilliant, with Smith first serving up a hot-stepping, dancehall and bhangra-influenced monster (the soon-to-be-everywhere 'Rayhana', where looped vocal samples, sweat-soaked drums and weighty bass catch the ear), before wrapping exotic, psychedelic, Indian-sounding lead lines around a rumbling broken techno groove on 'Dark Lavis'. Smith rounds off a superb EP with '5g Beats', a hard-to-pigeonhole drum workout peppered with stuttering vocal snippets, fractured electronics and 8-bit bleeps. In a word: terrific!

  6. Fragments (2:11)
Review: Zomby is back with another instalment of his Chaos Reins series. It is made up of music that the loudmouth but well respected UK producer has dug out from his vaults, but the material has all aged well. In fact, stylish breaks and bass like this is pretty ageless: people are always going to want to lose their shit to dark steppers and post-rave cuts such as these in a grotty and disused space. This one starts on a deep and introspective bleeps tip, then takes in reflective and glassy melodies on a shuffling garage beat and some haunting late night bass. For us, the eerie pads and skeletal rhythm of 'Fragments' is the real highlight for the way it subtly layers in an r&b vocal that brings hints of hope and soul.

Review: Kynant EX is a series for non-dancefloor focused records on hand-stamped vinyl. The second release comes from Leeds-based, abstract turntablist, NikNak - the first Black turntablist to win an Oram Award. She created Bashi by manipulating and processing samples through her decks. First released digitally in November 2020, now the album is expanded with a live edit and remixes from Bristol 140-don Pinch and Kamau (FKA Darling Farah).
