S>>D :: Co Intel Pro (Central Processing Unit)

Co In Pro is easily primed for the top shelves of listeners interested in definitive electronics with punctuated rhythm bursts. Both movement-based and armchair ready, Co Intel Pro is a fantastic (debut) album that crosses genre confines and maintains its futuristic, robotic, soundtrack-laden, and contagious trajectory. Consistently on the forefront of experimental electronic music, Sheffield-based Central […]

Noumen :: Apeiron (Central Processing Unit)

Aperion (Greek for “boundless”) stands up to its nameplate—fine-tuned structural audio blocks filled with a plethora of blackened IDM fragments, and disjointed post-industrial layers. Following up from the White Silence 4-track EP, Noumen (aka Andriy Vezdenko from Lviv, Ukraine) finally reveals a full length album after a handful of compilation appearances, this time for Sheffield […]

Cygnus :: Radical User Interfaces EP (Central Processing Unit)

Cygnus explores the tropes and memes of early techno and electro: snappy snares, pulsing, wobbling bass and shimmering arpeggios weaved around a futuristic sound and vision. I first encountered Cygnus when he was opening for Autechre during their 2015 tour of the States. His live set was bouncy and fast, full of classic electro themes […]

AUTECHRE :: Live @ 3S ArtSpace (Portsmouth, NH Oct-2015)

An Autechre live show in 2015 is an almost indescribable event. Imagine, if you will, a hundred thousand metallic wasps swarming in the midst of a gathering tornado. Autechre brought their live show to the US this fall and as usual didn’t disappoint while the support acts were somewhat hit and miss. I caught them at the […]

{Members.Welcome.} :: Computer Club

I’m not really a computer nut. Yeah, I know we all use ’em all the time but I’ve never really been into coding and stuff. I never really got past BASIC, or past the first few hours with it. Yet, I must admit, I always liked the egalitarian nature that a lot of coding has. […]

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 […]

Sync 24 :: Twilight Zones (Central Processing Unit)

Sync 24 ducks beneath the circuit boards, this time resurfacing for four tracks on Sheffield’s Central Processing Unit. Sync 24 is a name synonymous with Electro.

Sync 24 & The Exaltics :: Vacuum Years (Cultivated Electronics)

Vacuum Years inaugurates a new series that will see Cultivated Electronics boss Sync 24 (Phil Bolland) team up with some top names in Electro. Rob Witschakowski must have given up food this year. Maybe it’s sleep. Or perhaps he’s adopted some sort of machine man hermit life. Something’s got to account for Jena artist’s productivity […]

Cygnus :: Tesseracter (Central Processing Unit)

Starker sounds are present but they are juxtaposed deeper and textured moments for a balanced outing. Central Processing Unit is getting back to its roots. Following the excellent Trifolium by Carbon Flex the Sheffield based label is returning to its first signing. In 2012 Texas based Cygnus, Philip Washington, clicked the CPU switch with Newmark […]

Carbo Flex :: Trifolium (Central Processing Unit)

Music has always been a great source for the rose tinted glasses and the latest on Central Processing Unit got the sentimental juices flowing something serious. I’m a fierce nostalgic man. Irish sense of “fierce” there, substitute “very” if ya like; trying to get across that I’m not some wild man harking for the days […]

DMX Krew :: A New Life (Central Processing Unit)

Shrill and chilling the EP gives voice to the cold-blooded sounds of machines. DMX Krew has always had a healthy release rate, but at the moment his vinyl flow is turning to a deluge. After recent output on Mystic and Quantum alongside an album on Shipwrec, 2014 is proving to be a fruitful year for […]

Morphology :: Intercal (Central Processing Unit)

Intercal is bleak and involving, warm and estranging; in short, everything good electronic music should be. Morphology have been quiet of late. After years of serious productivity the Finnish duo have been focusing on solo productions of late, both Michael Diekmann and Matti Turunen dishing out their own projects for labels like Muhk and AC […]

Automatic Tasty :: Sentimentalist’s Choice (Central Processing Unit)

There seems to be a thawing in the Central Processing Unit output. In spite of the drop in temperature outside Sheffield Bleep’s label has decided to leave behind the frostier sounds of Electro. 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 […]

CN :: Voyages (Central Processing Unit)

Gjevik, EOD, CN, whatever nom de plume is being employed, is a real talent. His tracks not only have a retrospective innocence, they have a developed melodic quality and a vibrancy that can often be lacking in modern Electronics. The bad weather plaguing Britain has not dampened the releasing appetite of Central Processing Unit. Sheffield […]

FAH :: Not Enough Fahzers (Central Processing Unit)

Immediate comparisons come from labels like Cultivated Electronics, Last known Trajectory and Solar One come to mind. Newmark Phase has electro at its core whilst weaving in elements of electronics to deepen the sound. An interesting and well executed debut from both artist and label. [Release page] Sheffield was a strange base for electronic music […]
