V/A :: Unboxed Brain (De:Tuned)

Brainbox, and now Unboxed Brain, shows the range that exists within this almost limitless genre. Embrace the factory floor. Pull close to your bosom the clatter and clang of the warehouse.   I was out the other weekend here in Madrid, went to a club night where Daniele Cosmo, of Lux Rec, and me mate […]

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 […]

Igloo Magazine :: Best of 2016

While other sites might fight to get 1000s down to 50 or 20, at Igloo HQ we’ve refused to don the hair shirt of reducing respective contributor lists to a consensual singularity, in favour of doing justice to diversity via lists that range far and wide, and a congruent preference for letting their multiplicity simply […]

Rose tinted glasses aside, Brainbox is a seriously impressive undertaking. Six records from some twenty five pioneers, masters and newcomers. This new collection displays another side of Belgian label as a range of styles come into focus, from squirreled out acid and ambient immersion to electronica and glitch. There´s a fair bit of childish innocence that […]

David Morley :: The Origin of Storms (De:Tuned)

Ambient music with a rich and textured techno depth. Inspired by Conrad Schnitzler, Morley draws on a soft and serene selection of sounds, swirling them into a soundtrack of storms. I love getting in a good ole natter about electronic music. I don’t want to listen to someone drone on about some flash in the […]

B12 :: Transient Life (De:Tuned)

Instead this quartet is introspective and pondering, thoughtful and reflective; a slight glance back to the “Soundtrack of Space” before a firm gaze into an all too human future. Few people were as excited as myself when B12 announced their return to music some six years ago. They had always been one of my favorite […]

B12 :: Orbiting Souls (Delsin)

Orbiting Souls vividly recalls that mid-nineties period when B12 were in their element whilst also sounding classically timeless, perhaps even more so than some of their earlier work. There’s no denying the pivotal role Mike Golding and Steve Rutter’s B12 label and moniker played in the development of the UK’s early electronica, techno and IDM […]

LA Synthesis :: Agraphobia Relapse (De:Tuned)

There was a remix 12” released in ’95 but the De:Tuned gang have decided to go one better. Agraphobia Relapse collects a spread of artists active when the track was first released for something very special. At any gig, with a few drinks in me and a sounding wall, I’ll happily espouse the virtues of […]

DE:TUNED :: “Sounds like something from the 90s, no?”

Resurrecting the sounds of the 90s. I’ve a soft spot for Techno. It’s the genre that introduced me to electronic music and has quite a bit of nostalgia attached to it for me. It’s also the kind of genre I’ll happily, and drunkenly, start ranting about at parties. UK imprints like A13, B12, New Electronica […]
