There have been some cracking electro records in the last twelve months, although the same could be said for the last sixty or one hundred and one months. Chris & Robbie sieved through some of their favs from past and present to add some sonic bite to that slab of turkey you’re gnawing on. It’s […]

V/A :: Covert II EP (De:Tuned / Touched Music)

From sweaty floor to Saturday armchair, Covert II will provide. There’s always a certain amount of media fanfare about the prospect of a “supposed” Aphex Twin release. A whisper of Richard D. James is as much tantalising click-bait for the electronic music nut as the promise of celebrity nudity is to your local lad. Covert […]

“Something wicked this way comes…” :: Occult Research

More and more labels are turning to tapes. I remember my initial reaction: “Why?” Price being the obvious reason. But, the return to cassettes has allowed a variety of would-be artists and music promoters to get some hands on experience without the sinking investment of vinyl. There’s also the tactile quality of a tape, the […]

Chris Moss Acid :: Phantacy EP (Shipwrec)

Chris Moss Acid is part of a new generation utilizing that distinctive decaying dirge, merging monosynth abrasiveness with other sounds and delivering something different. I heave the collective sigh for anyone writing about electronics when it comes to the word “Acid.” There haven’t been many words created to describe the guttural growls of that famous […]

Missqulater :: They Rave Us (Central Processing Unit)

Missqulater sits in a particular bubblegum bubble. This Rainbow Raver takes two fistfuls of Skittles, downs one and pounds his machines with the other. The result is an animated, at times hysterical, caffeine addicted Nintendo romp. School days are the best days of your life. I’ve never really went for that cliché. There were some […]

Divine Profanity :: In Paradisum Interview and Mix

An unstable middle ground has been carved out by these Frenchmen. 4/4 patterns exist, but these can easily dissolve into broken or eradicated beat. Melodies fall and churn, rising then dipping. The catalog traverses living room relaxation and late night destruction. It rarely happens that I’m stuck for music comparisons. This isn’t bragging, I’ve listened […]

Aphex Twin :: Syro (Warp)

While we wait for the earth shattering material, though, Syro is a nice reminder that the genius is alive and well. As an artist, Aphex Twin (aka Richard D. James) is a true innovator. A brilliant quasi-autistic mind that always seems to go beyond the limits of electronic music. But as a “public” figure, Richard […]

The aural cockles are being warmed  by Ireland’s Automatic Tasty and the Sentimentalist’s Choice. “Sentimentalist’s Choice” is an Acid clad opener. Warm […]

Troubled Minds Cabin Crew :: Songs For The Animals (Bedroom Research)

A trip down memory lane, Digi G’Alessio’s (aka Troubled Minds Cabin Crew) new release, Songs For The Animals, revisits the sounds of early electronic music—the days of gigantic synthesizers and tape machines.

WISP :: Music over status

Wisp belongs to that rare group who genuinely prioritize music over status, identifiable, ironically, by their failure to boast about any such preference.

Wisp […]
