Review: Angela was the studio project of husband/wife duo Angela and Ingo Werner formed in 1981 in Russelsheim, Germany. Ingo had classical training in bassoon and piano at the Akademie fur Tonkunst in Darmstadt from 1966-70. He joined Krautrock band My Solid Ground in 1971 before going on to form his own project Baba Yaga in 1974. In the late 70s he formed the ensemble AIR with Armin Stowe and Reinhard Karwatky. The project debuted with a a concert at ARS Electronica Competition in Linz, Austria 1980, which they won. Klaus Schulze was on the jury with Wendy Carlos and Robert Moog - but more importantly, Angela was in the audience. Two days later, Ingo told the band he needed a singer, so they asked Angela, and recorded two albums for RCA between 1981-82 before being dropped. Ingo wanted to work on a new project that involved dancers and live video. They recruited American performance artist Jyl Porch, who was living in Munich, to assist with choreography with her friend Kirsten McKenley. Jyl ended up recording her own album first, which gained interest from Klaus Schulze, who helped them secure a deal with EMI in 1983. Later that year, the trio recorded 4 songs that would be released on Angela 'Fantasy' single on 7" and 12" formats in 1984.
The music on 'Fantasy' was completely created with computer software of Ingo's own design. The concept of a polyrhythmic, polyphonic, and polydynamic sequencer was realized by Ingo after a visit to Wolfgang Palm in Hamburg. He paired his sequencer with Palm's legendary PPG Wave Computer System, allowing for more dynamic and nuanced programming. Angela programmed the music, sang, and wrote the lyrics to "Painted Love", while Ingo arranged and played all electronics and keyboards. Jyl wrote the lyrics for "Fantasy" and the slow and sleazy, electronic disco B-side "I Gotta Little Love", where she also sings background vocals and the "hot little flame" rap. The original B-side to the 7" version was a cover of the 1967 Hal Hackady and Lee Pockriss song "Kites", made famous by Simon Dupree and the Big Sound. All songs have been remastered by George Horn at Fantasy Studios in Berkeley. The EP features the original 1984 cover artwork with a striking photo of Angela styled by Jyl in severe Neue Deutsche Welle fashion, and includes an insert with lyrics and and photos designed by Maycec..

Review: The deadpan tones of Berlin based singer songwriter Anika see a welcome return on this eponymously title EP for the Stones Throw label. This six track collection is dominated by the towering cover version of the Chromatics classic "In The City" which has been a long term staple of Anika's live show's with backing band Beak>. Whereas the Italians Do It Better was all sultry Italo disco and delicate vocals from Ruth Radelet, Anika's cover is one take rattling punk funk at it's finest and her own distinctive vocal delivery lends the track a sense of palpable desperation. Dub versions of album favourites "Ying Yang" and "No One's There" features alongside further cover's of tracks by The Kinks, Shocking Blue and The Crystals.

Review: Originally released in 1994, Biosphere's second album Patashnik, as we would later find out, was only the beginning. Geir Jenssen's Biosphere project has since become a name that rolls off the tongue alongside Brian Eno when talk of ambient comes to the table, and the use of vocals in tracks like "Phantasm" and "Startoucher" are as memory jogging as Marshall Jefferson's "Mushrooms". The music here provides a snapshot of Biosphere's sound before he committed a decade's worth of albums to UK label Touch. For a '90s take on things, you could day "SETI Project" has aged better than "Mestigoth", while the nebulous to deep classical tones and bluey-hues of productions like "Decryption", "Patashnik" and "Mir" remain timeless.

Review: The belated release of New York industrial ambient crew Black Rain's early '90s soundtrack work in 2011 sparked something in founder Stuart Argabright. It inspired a belated return to the studio and this surprise album, Black Rain's first for 18 years. Given how long they've been away, Dark Pool is a pleasingly accomplished set. Like their previous material, it wades in dark waters, joining the dots between droning electronic textures, skittish, IDM-inspired rhythms, horror chic, industrial noise and bleak electronica. It's hugely atmospheric, of course, but also strangely claustrophobic. It's a brilliant set, all told, but one that shouldn't be taken lightly.

Review: Warp's Boards of Canada reissue campaign reaches Geogaddi, perhaps the duo's most expansive (if not their most popular) record, presented here on a 3LP gatefold edition. Considerably darker than its predecessor Music Has The Right To Children, the claustrophobic sounds of "Gyroscope" and sampled spoken word in tracks like "Dandelion" and "Energy Warning" present a somewhat dystopian setting, filled with unsettling sounds, such as the light but eerie melodies of "Alpha & Omega" and "1969". Undoubtedly one deserving of reappraisal.

Review: Hull man and one half of Fila Brazillia, Steve Cobby has been a champion of downtempo sounds and Balearic bliss for many years now. The first thing to note about his album - which landed in May but only now makes it onto vinyl - is the excellent artwork, which melts his own face into an iconic image of the late, great, George Michael. Musically it is all lilting acoustic guitars, gentle drum tumbles and retro future synth chords that are lovably naive and innocent. There are moments of sunset beauty, more intimate late night lullabies and a general musicianship that is never less than excellent.

Review: Following the release of his last album of synthesizer-driven imagined sci-fi themes, 2017's "Iteration", Seth Haley AKA Com Truise set about rebuilding his studio, refreshing his palette of sounds and developing a new approach. The result is "Persuasion System", a set of unsurprisingly synthesizer-driven tracks that feels warmer and more human than much of the producer's previous work. Of course, Haley's seemingly inherent melodiousness and obsession with bold aural colours remains at the forefront throughout, meaning that even more bittersweet moments - see "Ultrafiche Of You", "Privilege Escalation" and opaque ambient moments "Gaussian" and "Departure" - will leave listeners feeling suitably warm and fuzzy inside.

Review: It has taken five years for FKA Twigs to follow up her astonishing first album, "LP1". With that kind of timeframe, you can't help but have high expectations for the finished product, expectations "Magdalene" more than meets from the off. An artist in the truest sense - with every step and stage in the recording process controlled by her - it's an accomplished comeback for a woman who in the last half decade has experienced both personal loss and major physical challenges. Don't expect more of the same, then, but instead a talent finding new purpose and new confidence following difficult times. With the ever-impressive Nicolas Jaar giving a helping hand, the result is a raw, honest record that's deeply personal, full of self-reflection and, ultimately, accepting and positive. Not to mention destined to be on repeat. Her position as one of the UK's most vital and compelling acts re-confirmed.

Review: You may not be familiar with avant-garde composer Valentina Goncharova, but this incredible collection of rare home recordings is enough to answer any questions you might have as to how mind-blowing her work is. The sort of artist who needs to flee the Leningrad Conservatoire in order to have the space and freedom to fully explore ideas. Combining elements of musique concrete, drone, ambient and a kind of lo-fi classical, this is an expression of place - sanctuary of the home - and its ability to offer protection from creative oppressors. Using vocal mantras, curious refrains, amplified and distorted strings (cello in particular), you really get a sense of not only the where but the how behind these arrangements. Hushed but dense, they draw the listener in with surprising speed, so before you know it you're right there in that domestic studio watching a genius at work.

Review: Chicago-based experimentalists HIDE built their reputation on a handful of releases - including an inspired debut album - built around densely layered sound collages, intense rhythmic snapshots and manipulated electronic noise. On new album "Hell Is Here", the American duo has opted to pursue a slightly different sound, with intense, screamed and - in one bizarre instance - vomited vocals rising above distorted, brain-melting sub-bass, mangled percussion, Nine Inch Nails style guitars and unsettling redlined electronics. It makes for intense listening, but there's little doubt the pair has produced a thrilling piece of work that should find favour with all those of a punky, leftfield disposition.

Review: Lyon's exotically-tinged electronic dance scene is the envy of many other parts of the world, and Macadam Mambo - the label carrying this exceptional collection of otherworldly tones - is right up there with the finest France's third city has to offer. As delectable as anything the country's gastronomic capital might serve up. Houschyar himself suits an imprint that cares little for geographical borders or any boundaries we may associate with them. Originally from Dresden, Germany, the artist is now based in Istanbul, one of the planet's foremost cultural melting pots. As such it shouldn't surprise anyone to learn these contents touch upon Krautrock, Berlin School, electro and shadowy synth wave, with more than a few punk edges thrown in for good measure. The result is packed with attitude, strange hypnotic danceability and a sense of adventure.

Review: Once dubbed by Young Marco as "the King of Chords", Italian ambient pioneer Gigi Masin has yet to make a duff album, or one that's not deliciously warm and loved up for that matter. Predictably he maintains this near perfect record with "Calypso", his first set for R&S Records' downtempo offshoot Apollo. Interestingly, it's perhaps a little more eclectic than you might expect, with cuts clearly influenced by Steve Reich and Jon Hassell (see opener "Calypso" and "How To Disappear In A Kiss") and dusty trip-hop beat-scapes ("Belamore", the jazz-flecked beauty of "Anemone") nestling side by side with fireside-warm ambient luxury ("If", "Your Name Is My Infinite") and pin-sharp synthesizer journeys ("Kalifa Golf Club"). It all adds up to one of Masin's most magical albums yet - and that's saying something.

Review: For her latest immersive and impressive work, composer and producer Anna Meredith has joined forces with the Scottish Ensemble - a strings-only orchestra from Glasgow - to create a seamless album inspired by Vivaldi's Four Seasons. In many ways, Anno is a re-telling of the much-loved orchestral piece, with Vivaldi's familiar compositions squeezed between wonderful new pieces by Meredith that combine neo-classical string movements with bubbly electronics, subtle beats and field recordings of various natural phenomena. Interestingly, even the more electronic-minded compositions don't sound out of place amongst Vivaldi's familiar suite, suggesting that Meredith's unique approach to musical fusion is both far-sighted and sympathetic.

Review: Well, it's another Tarantino flick in the picture houses, and that means another sublime soundtrack. Period. Apart from his directorial talents, of course, what's fascinating about the Mr QT is his ability to inject so much long-lost music into his films, and so much mystique and charm for a man at the top of the commercial Hollywood game; and while most other directors are playing out Taylor Swift or the most recent pop pseudo celebrity, this guy pulls out the big guns...like the mythical Ennio Morricone, the legendary 'Spaghetti Western' composer. As you'd expect, a great part of this is orchestral and aimed at creating moods, ambience and thrill, so if you're a fan of soundtrack works, this is set to be a collector's classic already. Fantastic, as per usual. Check the skits, too, it wouldn't be a Tarantino soundtrack without them!

Thomas' studio proficiency is more than matched by his imagination and creative ambition - would you expect any less from such a titan of Scandinavian electronic music?

Review: Over the years, multiple edits of the film have been created for the home video, DVD and blu-ray markets. Similarly Vangelis' score has been released in several different incarnations, but none of them are accurate representations of what was heard in the original 1982 film. This is a new recording faithfully recreating the original music from the film, which proved to be a difficult task. Vangelis' score was composed entirely by performing on keyboards and recording it directly, so no written transcriptions exist. Composer Edgar Rothermich was charged with reverse engineering the score - listening to the original music and a 1982 album mock-up and transcribing it by ear. He also had to recreate the sound of 1982 synthesizers and decipher if noise heard was due to recording on tape or stylistic choices by the composer. "The objective from the very beginning was to be as close as possible to the original score as heard in the film," Rothermich said. "It was never a case of my interpreting the soundtrack. It was essentially a re-recording of the soundtrack music."

The opener "First Saturn Returns" has potential to win 'the best album intro ever' award, instantly whisking you away to another world with its psychedelic jazz bravado. Exploring myriad melodies while keeping his dreamy melodic tendencies in-check, the album's bulging with surprises and ideas. From the Mark Pritchard style beat loops and P-funk bass of "Perfect Crime" to the fuzzier, trip-hop referencing "Ritual Howl" via the Osunlade-style percussion and thick layers of ambient synths of "Safe In Here", each track shimmers and whispers its own narrative while working together to form a distinctive body of work. There's no better time than now indeed.

Review: Over the last few years, Henry Laufer's releases as Shlohmo have tended to be archival affairs such as anniversary editions of early albums and sets of unheard early works. It's for this reason that "The End", the American producer's first studio set for four years, is such a welcome sight. It's an intriguing excursion, too, with Laufer offering up crunchy, dusty, often lo-fi tracks that wrap arty, indie-rock guitars and bass around lopsided drum machine rhythms, weird electronic flourishes, mind-altering effects and ghostly synthesizer motifs more often found in straight-up IDM releases. It's an unusual formula, but one that results in a string of memorable tracks and one must-check album.

Review: Melodious digi-dub evangelists Tapes and 7FO have been buddies for a fair few years, so it was little surprise to see them join forces for a special performance at the 2019 Meakusuma Festival. "Live: Electronic Aura Explosion" offers up extended highlights from that set, delivering 14 electronic, dub-wise concoctions that joyfully join the dots between 1980s digi-dub, ambient, new age and warm, sun-kissed electronica. With Tapes in charge of grooves and effects and 7FO manning guitar and effects pedals, the collected cuts - a mixture of new versions of Tapes classics and unheard collaborative works - achieve just the right balance between ear-peasing cheeriness, mutilated weirdness and spaced-out bliss.

Review: LTM Recordings offer up an expanded edition of B9: Belgian Cold Wave, the compilation of early Belgian cold wave and primitive electronics originally issued by the iconic Sandwich Records label back in 1981. This deluxe double vinyl pressing expands on that original edition with ten further tracks by Belgian acts that give a more conclusive overview of the country's contribution to the European cold wave moment that swept the continent in the late '70s and early '80s. So along with tracks by Digital Dance, Polyphonic Size, Pseudo Code and Prothese (Daniel 'Front 242' Bressanutti's first recording project) this new edition takes in the works of The Names, Marine, Front 242, The Neon Judgement, Siglo XX, Allez Allez, Berntholer, Nausea, Jung and Isolation Ward. Presented in a gatefold sleeve with new artwork from Victor Vasarely, B9: Belgian Cold Wave 1979-1983 also includes detailed sleeve noted and periodical images and will prove all too tempting for those seeking a particularly Belgian focus on Cold Wave.

As well as label regulars like Tadd Mullinix you can hear the likes of Emily A Sprague, Grand River and Sarah Davachi all imparting their captivating approaches to ambient composition. There's a sense of narrative flow to this record as it moves from one piece to the next, and the relatively compact tracks help facilitate this sense of movement through a calm and captivating space. From charming synth soliloquies to pop-tinged drone, this is a compilation as a meaningful artistic statement in itself.

Review: There's a fair chance you may already have been to see Atomic Blonde, an ultra-violent, Cold War-era thriller set in Berlin. If you have, you'll already be familiar with the stylish and moody soundtrack, which brings together original period material (David Bowie, Siouxsie & The Banshees, Nena, George Michael) with contemporary cuts (see Health's woozy cover of New Order classic "Blue Monday") and instrumental compositions by lauded soundtrack specialist Tyler Bates. The latter's contributions, mostly dark and industrial in tone and created using synthesizer and drum machines, stand out. The creepy "C*cks*cker", with its subtle nods towards Pink Floyd's "The Wall", and "Demonstration", a kind of amalgam of the Chemical Brothers and Nine Inch Nails, are particularly noteworthy.

Review: The artists featured here on Invenciones come from an intermediate period, influenced by the hippie movement and the advent of punk. They hail from that decisive stage of technological socialisation, when small studios and home recording studios were set up. A spirit of experimentation that was redefining the directions taken by music in the region, at a time when native sounds were introduced, either linked to the use of poor or austere technologies or to the local context. These were a group of individuals who worked on counterculture projects but, above all, what these artists have in common is being Latin Americans who shared the difficulties of belonging to a particular time in history. When ideological polarisation resulting from the Cold War was rife, when they would witness complex social processes, military coups, dictatorships and radicalisation. Musikautomatika (Venezuela) and Via Lactea (Mexico) have acquired cult status now. Because all of them needed to imagine a new space, they could forge a new scene that punk and technology would go on to consolidate. Now we can listen to them on this compilation, which allows us to imagine a time in the past when this other avant-garde music scene exploded.

Review: Two years ago, Joakim surprised us all by releasing a superb compilation of contemporary French ambient music on Tigersushi. Mixing academic ambient, neo-classical, music concrete and electronica, "Musique Ambiante Francaise" tapped into France's long and illustrious experimental music history while offering a decidedly 21st century perspective. This second volume offers up more of the same, fitting between meditative electronic minimalism (Fil Unique), trippy and dubbed-out weirdness (Krikor), sustained-note paranoia (67Yarc), gentle new age synth-scapes (Trypheme), Pete Namlook style intergalactic electronics (Smagghe & Cross), stark piano pieces (Numerous Aurus), freaky weird-outs (Bambounou) and much more besides. Some of it is more unsettling that chilled-out, but without fail each and every track is superb.

Review: Five years ago, French record collector Vidal Benjamin wowed us with "Disco Sympathie", a killer compilation of obscure Gallic disco and boogie gems. For this similarly dusty-fingered follow-up, he's set his gaze on French new wave and synth-pop. It's an entertaining and eye-opening listen that moves from the samba-chanson of Cecilia and the fizzing electro-funk of Electropic, to the sweet and cheery synth-pop of "Reserve". Highlights in between include the bustling synth-pop sleaziness of Sonia's "J'Sais Plus Ou J'En Suis", the throbbing new wave quirkiness of Milpatte's "Je Vais Danser" and the low-slung post-punk pop of I:Cube's fresh re-edit of Yogo's "Reve De Star".

Review: During the early-to-mid 1980s, Washington D.C-based musician Richard Simms crafted his own leftfield, punk-minded take on electronic funk under the Wicked Witch alias. While built around popping electro drums and headline-grabbing synths, Simms' work was thoroughly experimental in outlook, and has subsequently become cult listening. This first plate of this excellent double-pack contains a freshly re-mastered version of one of his best cuts, "Under Your Spell", Simms' new re-make of the same track (it's even wilder, but also more melodic, interestingly), and two previously unreleased gems. Meanwhile, the second disc boasts a brilliantly heavy, floor-friendly, breakbeat-driven remix of "Take A Bite Of Brains" by DJ Slyngshot, and a thrillingly wonky, acid-driven interpretation of "In The Way Of WSB" by YYPYY.

Review: Up until his death in 2003, Hiroshi Yoshimura spent decades offering up immaculate albums that blurred the boundaries between ambient, new age and minimalism. For those not versed in the Japanese ambient pioneer's vast catalogue, 1986's "Green" - which is here reissued by Light In The Attic - remains one of his most impressive works. Created using a minimal number of instruments (mostly synthesizers and electric pianos), the set is as quietly jazzy as it is relaxing. Highlights include the meditative, Terry Riley influenced bliss of "Feel", the pulsing organ stabs and blissful electronics of "Sheep", the garden-ready musical hug that is "Green" and the swelling opener "Creek".

Review: 'Orchestral Studies Collectanea' consists of seven previously unreleased orchestral movements (Tracks 1-7) in addition to remastered variations of arrangements that originally appeared on, 'Orchestral Tape Studies' and 'Orchestral Tape Studies [Tyresta Reworks]'. Orchestral Studies Collectanea is a compilation arranged and produced by zake with additional production by close friend Tyresta. OSC is a group of richly layered movements of fragmented orchestral loops, paying homage to minimalist symphonic composers and orchestras. zake and Tyresta incorporate field recordings and faint drone billows to accompany these selected samples of orchestral loops. With an emphasis on tone and recurrent murmurs, these arrangements offer approximately 48 minutes of delicate repetition, reticent sound treatments, and subtle manipulations. OSC is intended for low-volume listening.

Review: Second time around for Hans Zimmer and Benjamin Wallfisch's acclaimed soundtrack to Denis Villeneuve's 2017 flick "Blade Runner 2049". Like the film itself, Zimmer and Wallfisch's soundtrack is very much a sequel to Vangelis' 1982 original, with spacey, poignant and bittersweet orchestral compositions sitting side by side with more electronic, synthesizer-driven pieces that match the dark, futuristic mood of the movie. There are plenty of nods towards the musical themes explored first time around, with the climactic "Blade Runner" sounding like a 21st century update of the Greek composer's lauded original title music.
