9300 Records :: 31 Km Northwest of Brussels

There’s something that bit more intriguing when something is being attempted away from the bright lights of the bigger cities. From a mutual affinity for machine music, friends coming together over their favorite records, 9300 Records was born. I try to keep my ear to the ground, I try to cover new artists and labels […]

V/A :: Signs of Decay 2 (Solar One Music)

Signs of Decay 2 picks up where its predecessor left off with five tracks which all growl to their own different beat. As in Signs of Decay, the burning rancor of the TB303 is ever present, infecting each and every piece and sinking teeth into the dancefloor. I was at a party a few months […]

Nacho Patrol :: Panter 777 (Minimal Rome)

Panter 777 sees the synth junkie return to one of his lesser employed pseudonyms on the label which first debuted it. As a youngster I tried to stay abreast of releases from an up and coming artist. A bespectacled dutch man, one who looked like a serious amount of time was spent indoor and most […]

I Dream Of Wires gets its Berlin premier on July 28, along with a live performance by + talk with the legendary Morton Subotnick, composer of the seminal Silver Apples of the Moon […]

Beyond the Speakers, a new American imprint, has managed to bring together these pioneering artists, the steadfast synthesizist Danny Wolfers and the head-turning William Burnett, for Angels Against Dust. Bawdily […]

LGBT Rights for Russia Now!

“They’re so tired of shooting protest singers,” Elvis Costello once sang, “that they hardly mention us.” And yet what can they do but keep singing—or playing, at least—and keep ducking. In reaction to the near-unanimous passing of what amounts to Russia’s anti-gay answer to Hitler’s Nuremberg Laws, Robin Rimbaud, aka Scanner, announced in his latest […]

Stefan Blomeier :: Unexpected Journey (Lux Rec)

Unexpected Journey melts House structures, Blomeier utilising the mechanics of the sound as a canvas for his lucid abstractions. A bold and beyond the dancefloor 12” from a new talent. I fear for how many times I’ve typed the word Glasgow. Throughout my reviews this windswept city has come up time and time again. Perhaps it’s […]

Simoncino :: Werehouse EP (Echovolt)

There are some gentle techno thoughts coming through, but it is warm and layered house that is at the heart of the Italian’s sound. Simoncino has been building his credentials for several years now. Since 2008 the Italian has been serving up his take on the Chitown sound—having pushed the house envelope on labels like […]

Legowelt :: North Sea Spectrum EP (Signals)

For the 12” Legowelt has created some deep house sounds, jacking floor pelters and laid back electronics; an artist going strong, and getting stronger proving this one to be an excellent release. Europe may be in the grip of a cold snap, but there’s enough of a thaw in the UK to keep the vinyl […]

Legowelt :: Poverties Paradise (Echovolt)

Poverties Paradise is a sublime piece of electronics, Legowelt draping the listener in warm analogue sounds alongside a steady machine beat. Despite the financial austerity coursing through Europe record labels are still managing to get vinyl on the table. From the sun drenched, and economically entrenched, shores of Greece comes Echovolt Records. Since 2009 this Athens […]

L.I.E.S. sees house in the past, present and future

The 303 rawness of the past house masters is present, the depth of Theo Parrish is here as well as the unapologetic grit of modern Jak. Fair play to Ron Morelli and the L.I.E.S. team, one year down and already blazing a serious trail. What is in a name? Not much, but it can help. […]
