Techno’s Outer Limits :: July 2017

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 :: 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, […]

DECIBEL FESTIVAL 2015 :: In-depth coverage & visual archive

At this event the music itself matters, and audiences would rather hear Autechre’s complex and aggressive IDM in a blacked-out club than cringe at Steve Aoki’s new Celine Dion remix or Skrillex and Diplo’s latest collaboration with Justin Bieber (yes, these are actual things that unfortunately happen in real life at other festivals). Here are […]
