WE FORFEIT (Mix 3) :: Mulled wine, scented pine and yuletide electro

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 […]

Franck Kartell :: Alaska (Bass Agenda)

The LP toys with the parameters of electro, layering in shades of electronica and IDM. Beats are present but shrouded in stark shadow, blurred in the low light of the northern plains. A record of ambitious proportions and sublime execution. Electro has always been a “distant” or “otherworldly” sound. Kraftwerk saw it as the music of […]

E.R.P. :: Ancient Lights (Solar One Music)

Buttressing electronica with stripped rhythms, E.R.P. creates warm and vivid soundscapes as The Exaltics add some extra thrust for the floor. The Hubble Telescope Series was established with clear intent. Founded with a space-soaked 12” of astral electro by Luxus Varta, the mission was to forge electronics in the form of worlds beyond our own. […]

Luxus Varta :: Everything is Nothing (Hubble Telescope Series 1) (Solar One Music)

Following Elektronische Werke and The Crystal Issue Cycle comes The Hubble Telescope Series. This latest set of releases are an homage to the eponymous instrument and the images it has captured. Solar One Music seem to like a sub-series, especially a sub-series with a very long name. Following Elektronische Werke and The Crystal Issue Cycle […]

The Exaltics :: The Truth Remixes (Solar One)

Everything that is good about electro is here. The harshness of the genre’s almost draconian parameters and how those limits can be stretched and bent to the musician’s will. Beautiful soundscapes tapered by rigidity, talented illustrations of how this sometimes overlooked style has so much to offer. Quality through and through. Solar One Music has […]

In Sync :: Storm Evolution I & II (Last Known Trajectory)

Storm Evolution I & II sees a wonderful marriage of past and present. The first foundations of electronic music employed to build new sounds and erect new visions from both first creators and the new generation of machine musicians.

After three excellent installments it’s time for the fourth, revisiting some old favorites whilst adding some new names to the CE family. Up first is a the seriously talented Gerard Hanson.

Headnoaks :: System Neuroscience (BlackRed)

Headnoaks’ audio expression (also) gazes into the past, the warmth of 90s Techno and IDM alongside the videogame nostalgia of early Rephlex. Leipzig’s BlackRed cut its vinyl teeth last year with a compilation of terse electronic movements and drawn depth. Now this fledgling imprint is taking one of the artists of this compilation and exploring […]

Plant43 ‎:: Radiant Flux (Central Processing Unit)

Electro meets Electronica for science fiction sculptures filled with analogue texture and depth. Over the past few years Emile Facey (aka Plant43) has built an impressive discography. Across labels like Ai Records, Semantica and AC Records, Facey has developed his brand of warm soundscapes laced with clinical coldness. Electro meets Electronica for science fiction sculptures […]

Jeanne Vomit-Terror & Ed Sunspot / Three Legged Race :: Double review (Acoustic Division)

It’s been a while since I’ve written about Acoustic Division. The US label comes from the South West, an unlikely location for electronics. Acoustic Division keeps the electronic oasis verdant with two recent releases. Jeanne Vomit-Terror and Ed Sunspot introduce The Seat of Same. This twosome come from Resonant Hole, a “a mutant collective cultivating […]

AC Records does Electro

AC Records is a label that stands for real Electro. Their records, to date, are true to a sound that has quite strict parameters. A distance is maintained whilst just the right degree of warmth is allowed to dissect the sterility. AC showcases both established and fresh talent, knows what it wants and delivers. [October 2011] […]
