Review: James Clements continues his explorations into the depths of the grey zone as ASC with The Farthest Reaches double pack on Auxiliary. Samurai Music's Presha has excitedly called these four tracks "a definitive musical statement from one of the most important electronic musicians of our era," and who are we to argue with him? Making full usage of the format and available space, this is ASC in exploratory mode across a quartet of deep ten minute plus productions that have it all; sound design, atmosphere, groove, bass weight. To simply call these epic is selling The Farthest Reaches short!

Review: Back in 2014, Dutch Minimal Wave legend Danny 'Das Ding' Bosten released Sequencer, a cassette of recordings made using his own homebrew modular drum machine and a Casio SK1 loaded with a Mellotron sample. Issued by local Rotterdam label DeHef Tapes, it proved something of a cult addition to the small but deadly Das Ding discography. In a show of good faith, DeHef have licensed the four tracks to fellow Rotterdam crew Midlight for this limited, hand-stamped 10" edition which will delight the Das Ding fanatics who prefer their Bostenite on wax. Sequencer is not really comparable to the early Das Ding popularised by Minimal Wave, it's Bosten looking forward and sequential experimentation at its most rewarding. Fans of the more stripped down SUED stuff can probably vibe to this too!

Review: Ethiopian producer Mikael Seifu creates experimental Ethio-jazz or 'Ethiopiyawi Electronic' according to critics. This unique sound coming out of the capital Addis Ababa has Seifu combining electronic music with traditional native instrumentation and singing to stunning effect. Starting out with the politically charged, hazy exoticism of "The Protectors" he then gets stuck in with the offbeat ethereal journey "The Solipsist". Traditional string and wind instruments played by an orchestra builds to an epic climax on "How To Save A Life (Vector Of Eternity)". "AAAA (Vector Of Light)" goes out all guns blazing on this epic electronica-rock crossover jam. According to RVNG Int'l themselves, Seifu "does not westernize or electronicize extant Ethiopian music," instead he brews estranged styles for his own musical tincturing. Another fine release from New York's RVNG Intl.

Review:  Having spent the last few years producing music for video games and advertisements, Dutch IDM veteran Kettel returns with his first album for three years. It's as colourful, melodious and entertaining as you'd expect, with obvious nods to the likes of Plaid, Boards of Canada, Biosphere and Aphex Twin. These 1990s inspirations are combined with subtle nods towards movie soundtracks, soaring neo-classical movements (see the immersive "Here Comes The Gang"), twisted acid, and - on the delightful "Mousefort" - dusty trip-hop and dubbed-out jazz. These various influences are expertly combined to create something distinctive, kaleidoscopic, and impressively widescreen in scope.

  1. Need Of Angels (8:48)
  2. Sleight Of Hand (5:23)
  3. A Search Of New Realities (6:39)
Review: Having recently released Not Waving's industrial-influenced Animals LP, Powell and Jaime Williams' Diagonal imprint has clearly developed a taste for dystopian, post-industrial noise. In The Mouth Of The Wolf's eponymous debut brings together two notable flag-bearers for the darker side of electronic music, Berlin's Ancient Methods and Gordon "Cindytalk" Sharp. All three tracks are undeniably weighty, with angry, guitar-laden opener "Need Of Angels" - all clanking percussion hits, droning electronics and "up yours" attitude - coming on like the aural equivalent of a violent punch to the guts. There's a little more of a Microphonies-era Cabaret Voltaire feel about "Sleight Of Hand", while "A Search of New Realities" is refreshingly paranoid and claustrophobic.

Review: Iceland's Olafur Arnalds (Kiasmos) and German multi-instrumentalist Nils Frahm team up again for some breathtaking excursions in classical/ambient crossover bliss. Frahm's sombre piano passages gently dance over Arnalds' serene soundscapes and eerie field recordings on this bittersweet and emotive journey. What was meant to be a one hour video recording of the duo in action turned out to be an eight hour long improvisation session and these are some of the segments of the wonderful marathon recording. We particularly enjoyed the gorgeously haunting electronic soul captured on "23:52" where those analogue synth strings just rise and rise to an epic climax.

Review: Alex Ander and Marc Dall, the two dudes behind the Dalhous project, have pretty much restricted their output to the mighty Blackest Ever Black label, but who could blame them? The label has been one of the most consistent and diverse stables for dark and industrial dance and non-dance music over the last five years, a true pinnacle of the 2010's. This latest work, entitled The Composite Moods Collection Vol 1 / House Number 44 is a beast of an album, nineteen piece of sparse and desolate electronic music that has much more in common with a soundtrack than an ambient album. In fact, the chilling backdrops of drones and electro-acoustic wails that flutter over this work are truly a piece of moody melodica, a times loosely infused with melted beats and a ritualistic form of percussion. It's classic BEB material, and if you're into travelling to sinister, cavernous places, this will surely do the trick.

Review: When not collaborating with former Factory Floorer Dominic Butler as the charmingly titled Green Gums or Bronze Teeth respectively, Richard Smith finds a fitting home for his solo L/F/D/M work on Alessio Natalizia aka Not Waving's Ecstatic imprint. There's "Lego Train Crashes" on the A side: this is tough and noisy arpeggio driven techno done properly, placing him up there with masters of the art like Silent Servant and Frak. "Elek F" is straight up Drexciyan electro-funk, but truly one of the better tributes we've heard to the aesthetic in a while. On the flip there's "Take A Chance" and just like its namesake you could really. It's the most restrained effort on here but still pretty crunchy: good to use mid-set perhaps? Finally "Rum & Black" is the kind of crusty and overdriven lo-fi nastiness which has landed him releases for Glaswegian noise merchants Clan Destine Traxx recently.

Review: Planet Mu usher in the return of Ital Tek and a new sonic approach for the long-term label associate, as Hollowed finds Alan Myson switching up his approach. The chance to immerse himself in a new studio set up was the impetus for Myson to engage in laying down countless hours' worth of loops, drones and textures. It is apparently a method he used as a teenager, but armed with years of recording experience he was now able to make the record he had then envisaged. Fans of the crisp style of dubstep Ital Tek made his name on might be a bit taken aback by this new direction, but there is plenty of fine music to explore here for those that like their sounds abstract and impressionistic.

  1. Asis Part 3 (14:03)
Review: Wania come through with the oddness once again! It's not clear who is behind ASIS, though there are breadcrumbs of info out there that suggests the involvement of main players in Acido, Sex Tags and SUED. It certainly wouldn't surprise us if the name was a cloak for any number of Sex Tags associates to jam in the studio and lay down this 14 minute exercise in abstract sonics!! As with some of the recent Wania releases, "Asis Part 3" is cerebral stuff and we highly recommend it for the weekends you want to kick back and trip out in the company of some strange music. The more adventurous DJs out there might even find some room in the earliest moments of a club night to deploy "Asis Part 3" and lay down a marker for how deep you want to take it!

Review: British duo Hintermass serve up their debut album The Apple Tree. It comprises Jon Brooks and Tim Felton; who was formerly of legendary British group Broadcast. The two multi instrumentalists take us on an exotic and cosmic journey (Ash-ra and Popul Vuh said to have been influences) influenced by traditional and psychedelic folk strains, as well. We particularly enjoyed the hazy and esoteric vibes of "The Rituals Of Reversal", the retro-pop of "Patterns Somewhere" reminiscent musically of Simon & Garfunkel and featuring Felton's velvety vocals and of course the bittersweet cosmic trip towards the end "Weicher". A thoroughly enjoyable album!

Review: While he was already building an impressive reputation for his distinctively atmospheric take on modern classical, it was arguably 2006's Songs From Before full-length that really put Max Richter on the map. A decade on, that set - his third, for the record - is being given the reissue treatment. Widely praised at the time, it was Richter's first to feature a narrator, in this case the distinctive tones of progressive rock legend Robert Wyatt. His readings seemingly float above Richter's superb piano, and the subtle accompaniment of a string quartet. Richter has always shown a light touch, and it's this trait that makes Songs From Before such a beguiling listen.

Review: It has been almost two years since the Fatima Al Qadiri's debut LP dropped on Hyperdub, and we're as excited now for her follow-up as when we'd heard the first one. This is because Qadiri provides us with everything to satisfy our need states; through an awry and granular sound, the artist is able to transmit a whole spectrum of moods and feelings. This makes Brute an album for anyone, and it can be enjoyed both by the party-goers and the moody corner-dwellers. The intro is a detached sort of skit that distances itself form any sort of shape, but so we're dropped in a post-futuristic world of pseudo grime, broken, detuned techno and tropical electronica. To be honest, there would be no other place for it than the mighty Hyperdub. Big release.

Review: Obsessed retrovert and vintage synth freak Hyboid is German producer Sebastian Hubert who indeed runs the Astro Chicken imprint. Terrors Of The Universe is an imaginary soundtrack for an early '80s film that even though didn't exist (as we know it) kind of does live on now through this impressive effort. It references all the influences you'd expect: Giorgio Moroder, Fun Fun, Gershon Kingsley.. all the greats really! We particularly enjoyed "Marauder Joe's Adventures In Space" whose adrenalised and uplifting arpeggios sound rather reminiscent, the mysterious late night swagger of "Flight Of The Astro Kitten" (yes the titles are pretty awesome!) and poppy 80's discotheque sounds (or video game? We can't decide!) of "Cosmo Speedrun".

Review: Izabel Caligiore's wonderful Lullabies For Insomniacs show on Red Light Radio expands its remit with the launch of an eponymous label and the debut release showcases the distinct talents of Sugai Ken. According to Caligiore, Ken made contact with her after hearing the legendary Chee Shimizu mix on LFI, sending over some CDs of his music and she was blown away by the Tokyo artist's unique sonic vision. The end result is On The Quakefish, a delightfully odd adventure through Ken's immersive world where Gigi Masin-style new age bliss outs intermingle with strange vocal chant tracks and other quirky compositions. Nature and water specifically seems to be a central theme for this most intriguing album which sounds like it has been recorded from another dimension. A fine debut from Lullabies For Insomniacs, we are totally behind this one!

Review: The Girls In Uniform 12" sees Poni Hoaxer Nicolas Ker and Versatile boss Gilbert Cohen revisit their Aladdin project. Legend has it heartbreak brought the two to form Aladdin, seeking solace in making music together after being dumped by their respective girlfriends. After a debut album back in 2011, the project was put on the shelf but the pair decided to get back in the studio at the behest of "a well-known energy drink" for a session with some killer musicians. The result on "Girls In Uniform" is a strange brew of rock, dub, and kraut and sounds wholly suited to Versatile, as do the accompanying versions from Trevor Jackson and Cohen.. The latter's dub version under the Graal alias is apparently one of the first recordings to roll out of his new Amsterdam studio!

Review: Elia Perrone is the man behind Unclear Records while fellow Italian Gigi Masin is known for his ambient work since 1986, namely that reissue on Music From Memory (Talk To The Sea) and his involvement in Gaussian Curve. Starting out with the gloomy modern /ambient vibes of "Stella" things gets a bit more optimistic on "Garden Blues" with its captivating groove situated somewhere between trip-hop and shoegaze, whatever it is: it's quite stunning. On the flip Israeli deep house power duo Juju & Jordash deliver a pumping remix of "Stella" which adds some needed dancefloor dynamic on such a version, while Noro Love Mum's remix of "Garden Blues" injects a party starting deep house vibe into it while still retaining the mesmerising and dreamy elements of the original intact quite superbly.

Review: Aisha Devi's brilliant Of Matter And Spirit release from last year gets the remix treatment by a stellar cast here, merging her esoteric electronica weirdness into new hybrids. Irish duo Lakker turn "Anatomy of Light" into a freeform techno excursion with ferocious broken beats and Devi's vocals chopped and morphed into new forms. No Pain In Pop/New Ninja Tune signing Throwing Shade turn in a rendition of "Kim & The Wheel Of Life" that's ethereal as much as it is jagged and unusual. Knives associates Mind:Body:Fitness give "Mazda" a turnover that mutates it into some alien urban flavour much like their associates on Kuedo's label. Finally there's another version of the track by Bristol's Killing Sound featuring MC Rider Safique and Bogues exploring the dark side of bass music and truly exorcising the demons.
