Latest emission in a series from Techno’s Twilight Zone of EPs/12″s and LPs with notes in the margins.   First up, Avian hosts 400ppm for Fit for Purpose, a set of neo-Industrial Techno sketches skulking around a kind of ‘floor functionalism flirting with something vaguely conceptual—‘works to capture the sense of unease and hysteria that fuelled, and continues to fuel the vital countercultural movements that […]

Techno’s Outer Limits :: April 2017

First transmission of 2017 from Techno’s Twilight Zone of EPs/12″s and LP, with notes in the margins. James Shaw, the artist known as Sigha, we’re told (blurb), ‘has always placed the listener at a centrifugal point that invites a clandestine hypnosis rather than an abject hysteria.’ Cheers for that, James. Be that as it may, a kind of […]

Elsewhereness revisited #4 appetite for distraction

Elsewhereness revisited is an occasional feature documenting the drift at the margins: ambient gasbagging, ’tube-d, ’cloud-ed, and ’camp-ed up, complete with companion mix, Elsewhereness revisited #4.  Gailes is Benoît Pioulard, late-period ambient mode engaged (cf. Sonnet, Stanza, Thine), and long-time student of decay, sustain & release, Rafael Anton Irisarri—guitar-y, synth-y, studio savvy. Previous dronership, solo and duo (Orcas), doesn’t quite […]

Techno’s Outer Limits :: December 2016

Last emission of 2016 in a series from Techno’s Twilight Zone of EPs/12″s and LPs with notes in the margins. Porter Ricks’ quasi-mythical status may have grown in the 17 years since their last Symbiotics (Mille Plateaux, 1999), but latest EP, Shadow Boat, shows the myth is merited. FACT mag tags the title track ‘the year’s most labyrinthine, […]

Elsewhereness revisited #3 :: Party Like It’s 1991

Elsewhereness revisited is an occasional feature documenting the drift at the margins: ambient gasbagging, ’tube-d, ’cloud-ed, and ’camped-up, complete with companion mix, Elsewhereness revisited #3 1991 made waves in 2012 with High-Tech High-Life (Opal Tapes)—chewy New Age synth ‘n’ soundscapes laced with arpeggiating timbres and shimmering drones, and self-titled (Astro:Dynamics)–IDM-y sounds shot through with post-ambient forms and off-kilter melodies, while his Skogen, Flickan Och […]

Techno’s Outer Limits :: October 2016

Latest in a series of emissions from Techno’s Twilight Zone of EPs/12″s and LPs with notes in the margins. Stroboscopic Artefacts‘ updates its Monad series with Monad XXIII, as Charlotte Isabelle ‘deliver a uniquely organic electronic music that seems as if it has been finely aged for years in oak barrels rather than residing on a computer’s hard drive.’ The French duo pursue […]

Techno’s Outer Limits :: July 2016

Latest emission from Techno’s Twilight Zone of EPs, 12″s & LPs with notes in the margins.  First Italy, where Dino Sabatini has launched the Outis Opera sub-series with a first album since Shaman’s Paths (‘view here), from which Omonimo notably departs; as much on a downtempo and trip-hop tip as on an Italian deep techno template of the type co-designed inter alii with […]

ASC :: The Farthest Reaches (Auxiliary)

Tracks on The Farthest Reaches register around 130 bpm, yet create a kind of illusion of movement towards a rolling half-step neo-Schaffel kinesis. A Zeitgeist-y convergence of genre vectors has been descried in ASC‘s recent work—a sense he ‘may well have just cracked the elusive code that binds techno and D&B’s mutually exclusive DNA’ (believe the boomkat hype!). James Clements continues […]
