Review: Minimal Wave return to the band that started their impressive endeavours with a fourth pressing of the Oppenheimer Analysis EP which is presented in loving memory of founding member Martin Lloyd who sadly passed away earlier this year. A welcome chance to bask in the duo's politically charged wave sounds for anyone that missed out on the previous three pressings here, with two absolute classics from the Oppenheimer Analysis cassette "New Mexico" present in the shape of "The Devil's Dancer" and Silent Servant favourite "Cold War". In addition there are two unreleased cuts culled from the archives of Andy Oppenheimer and Martin Lloyd that further demonstrate what an important band Oppenheimer Analysis were!

Review: Given that Four Tet's recent 0181 LP was comprised of material from Kieran Hebden's archives, and last year's Pink was largely compiled of tracks from the previous 18 months of 12" releases, it seems fair to say that Beautiful Rewind is his first proper album since 2010's There Is Love In You, and as such, it arrives with some degree of expectation. The past few years have seen the producer engage increasingly with the dancefloor, and these rhythms are most definitely present across the LP, particularly in the jungle breaks of "Kool FM", pirate radio-influenced techno of "Buchla" and hesitant dubstep style rhythms of "Parallel Jalebi". For the most part however Beautiful Rewind is as varied as the likes of Rounds and There Is Love In You, with the minimalist kosmische of "Ba Teaches Yoga", analogue gurgles of "Crush" and dawn chorus sounds of closer "Your Body Feels" all as beautiful as his most enduring tracks.

Review: As Apollo starts to spread its wings into a richer pool of artists in its second guise, so they look to Anton Zap for a healthy seven-track offering that brings warmth to the label that seemed to escape some of the recent releases. There's no doubt Zap is good at creating a mellow atmosphere, but as "Water" demonstrates he can also tease more earthly textures and tones into his ambient techno studies to create a greater depth and impact. There are some more house orientated turns such as the spaced-out shuffle of "Road Trip Song", while "Funky Man" rolls on a sassy beatdown groove and acidic bassline, providing a welcome diversity in amongst the mystical aura of Zap's productions and Apollo's downtempo remit.

Review: School Daze is a killer compilation put together by the Dark Entries label and the Honey Soundsystem crew, collating some of the early recordings produced by Patrick Cowley in the years between 1973-81 and were later used as soundtrack material in two gay porn films. You will probably know Cowley for his Hi-NRG output or 'that' Donna Summer remix or his behind the buttons work on Sylvester tracks. Be prepared for a surprise (well quite a few as the 'explicit content' warning on the cover lives up to its billing) as this collection presents Cowley as a producer capable of many styles and moods. The closest School Daze comes to the sound Cowley is most identified is opening track "Zygote" and from here the collection runs through primitive electronics, short bursts of wave and more with a few extended gems that highlight Cowley's talent for arrangement. One of the compilations of the year!

Review: Future Fusion is the killer debut set from Streetwalker, the collaborative project of White Car's Elon Katz and Beau Wanzer of Mutant Beat Dance/L.I.E.S. fame. The DIY ethos of primitive Chicago house seeps into the pair's work as Streetwalker, with the material that forms Future Fusion recorded live in one take. This was subsequently recorded without any overdubs or MIDI to one inch tape, with the resultant six tracks resonating with a loose, primal energy. Sitting uneasily between house, industrial, synth-pop and EBM, Future Fusion is one of those records that you simply cannot second guess. This being a Cititrax release, the presentation is second to none too, with some superb illustration work from the well respected graphic artists Spencer Longo, but in truth the music should be the real focus of attention here.

  1. Changes (James Blake Harmonimix)
Review: Whilst James Blake's current career path has had a decidedly marmite effect on the general public, listening to this Harmonimix of Mala's "Changes" proves beyond doubt the producer's talent for crafting emotive, though provoking electronic music. The story allegedly goes that Blake one day sent the Deep Medi boss the remix via email, commenting with typical modesty "I've just done a remix". This particular remix of all Blake's specially tailored self Harmonimixes is perhaps the one that achieved mythical status - they are all superb but "Changes" just feels that extra bit special. This might have something to do with the fact it's been a dubplate weapon of the lucky few for roughly three years, but the sheer shuddering brilliance of the track is stunning.

Review: The final installment of Imbroglios, Monsieur Bradock's series of supposed reworks from the soundtrack to the film Operation Veaux Carnivores arrives and it's a fitting finale sounding like it could only come from the feted Frenchman. Whilst the series has not resulted in the kind of immediately gratifying and 'classic' production as Bradock favourites "Deep Burnt" or "Life", Imbroglios has confirmed without doubt his unique talent for adventurous production. It's hard to condense just how much music is explored within these six tracks as Bradock swaggers through moments of sultry beat down, outright psychedelia, crazed percussive house rich with gleeful detail and more, sometimes within the duration of one track.

Review: From his former base in Kansas City, Huerco S has navigated a path into the collective affections of us here at Juno HQ via a series of superb 12" emissions for Wicked Bass, Opal Tapes, Proibito and Future Times which have demonstrated this young producer to be a master of gauzy, lopsided, recycled house. A mark of the producer's rising status is made with his debut album, Colonial Patterns, for Daniel Lopatin's Software label which reveals itself to be an ambitious collection; Huerco S's lo fi production touch is very much evident here but he rarely seems concerned with outright house tools, instead looking to draw you into an introspective otherworld. "Plucked From The Ground, Towards The Sun" and "Ragtime USA" are immediate highlights but this is an album whose inner beauty reveals itself over repeat listen. Contender for LP of 2013!

  1. Alpha Zone
  2. Gamma Zone
Review: Thus far the Vivod label has proved to be refreshingly diverse in its approach, with the meaty electro and tripped out Will Powers styled experimentation of the debut release from label boss Ali Renault markedly different to the primitive electronics and early wave of NCW's collaborative twelve with the distinctively titled Piss. It makes sense therefore that the third Vivod release from the wonderfully named Mild Peril should deviate in yet another direction, veering into the realm of resplendent, laid back analogue explorations. The latest creative incarnation of London DJ, musician and "reluctant club promoter" Christopher J Gilbert, Mild Peril digs into his digital archives for a newly remastered version of "Alpha Zone" that chugs gently through six minutes of cosmic synthscapes. Even better is the nine minute "Gamma Zone" which uses the slower pace and extended duration to veer deep into the Balearic core.

Review: Released back in 2003, Rounds was the third LP from Kieran Hebden as Four Tet and perhaps the first long player that widely established him as a pioneering voice within electronic music. Though it doesn't feel like a decade since it was released, Domino celebrate the album's tenth anniversary in requisite fashion here, reissuing it in double LP format and slipping in a CD of Four Tet performing live in Copenhagen in 2004. Listening back now, it's easy to understand why Rounds is viewed as an early classic in the Four Tet canon, transferring his love for free jazz records to a beat template that's more palatable on the ear (Fact pickers might want to know that Hebden recently revealed to Pitchfork the LP was made entirely from samples) "She Moves She" still sounds absolutely haunting too!

Review: First surfacing with an impressive debut EP for the Horizontal Ground label, it makes perfect sense that Berlin-based Samuel Kerridge should then gravitate towards Downwards to further expand on his own brand of industrial techno. You get feeling that the knowing sense of humour apparent in many of the titles to Kerridge productions appeals to someone like Downwards label boss Karl O'Connor. After several EPs for Downwards, Kerridge unveils his debut album A Fallen Empire which comes brandishing "7 pieces of sonic warfare" that lodge the producer ever deeper into the crawlspace between jagged industrial techno and white noise laden experimental sounds. B side behemoth "Death Is Upon Us" is a morbid highlight.

Review: Hinted at it in transmissions from Blackest Ever Black for some time now, the chance to grasp the debut album from Tropic Of Cancer will be greeted greedily by the group's fans. Those intoxicated by Tropic Of Cancer releases thus far for Downwards, Mannequin and Blackest Ever Black will not be disappointed one iota by Restless Idylls, an eight track album recorded solely by Lobo in LA and subsequently graced with production work from Regis. Indeed it's the Downwards boss who teases extra emotive levels out of TOC gems such as "Children Of A Lesser God" whose central synth motif takes on whole new consuming levels of psychedelia here in comparison to the version that originally featured on last year's EP I Feel Nothing. Its factors such as this that lend the album a shining clarity that separates Restless Idylls from previous Tropic Of Cancer releases and ensures its an album likely to feature in those end of year lists.

Review: Sony continue their efforts to ensure Depeche Mode's 13th studio album Delta Machine receives a record number of remixes with this hefty slab of wax for new single You Should Be Higher. Along with the expected commercially-minded efforts this 12" is perhaps most notable for the pair from UK techno monster Tom Russell, who surprisingly brings his MPIA3 alias out of retirement (hey it's not everyday Depeche Mode come calling) in quite devastating fashion as well as contributing a rework under the more widely established Truss moniker. Also of note is the face down effort from Hessle Audio's Pangaea whose dub mix flirts between broken techno and recycled jungle.

Review: The mythical Transdance from UK duo Night Moves is given a much needed official issue by Domestica Records and the Barcelona label have spared no expense. A limited pressing of 400 clear blue 10"s come housed in hand printed and hand numbered sleeves accompanied by a leaflet with complete biography of the band. Despite the paucity of Night Moves discography, it's clear the duo of Michael Guihen and John Davis have had an everlasting effect on the canon of synth music with their much admired debut. Transdance was originally released as a limited 12" white label in 1981, finding favour on the dance floors of Europe and New York City yet never really gained the wider exposure it richly deserved. Original copies of the GC1 pressing of Transdance still command slightly ridiculous prices on Discogs so kudos to Domestica for this rather special presentation which features a previously unreleased demo cut "Life Up" on the flip.

Essential!

Review: Following up the runaway success of Crooks & Lovers was always going to be a daunting task for Mount Kimbie, and they've wisely taken their time to come back with a step forwards from a sound which gave rise to the more folky strains of the dubstep aftermath. Sounding fresh and invigorated on their LP for Warp, Kai Campos and Dominic Maker have built on their love of shoegaze indie and brought their component parts into a clearer vision where they used to hide them behind heavy editing and microsampling. There are plenty of reminders that this is a Kimbie record, not least in the winsome melodies that shape the LP, but the duo have succeeded in shearing away their self-conscious trickery to write full-bodied songs that hit on first listen, rather than ten spins down the line.

Packed with Greenspan's trademark melancholic, Metro Area-ish synths, but built around Lanza's fragile, otherworldly vocals, Pull My Hair Back is a contender for the best leftfield pop album of the year. Variously touching on synthesized R&B, deep boogie, sparse torch songs (see the sublime title track) and starbust wonkiness (the beautifully off-kilter "As If"), Lanza and Greenspan have delivered an impeccable, unassuming delight. Recommended.

It's an intense, at times oppressive listen, but with such masterful sound design and a refusal to over-egg any one idea, Felix has successfully created an album that demands attention. For all the avant-garde leanings in Flowers Of Destruction, it's actually not hard work to listen as one post-apocalyptic study glides into the next.

Review: Soundtracks For No Film Vol. 1 is a rather charming mini album of outer-spatial, conceptual electronics from the always on point Acido Records label, seemingly tasking contributors to deliver arrangements worthy of soundtracking film. Madteo sets the tone with "Science Fiction" a haunting spectral cut with little regard for beat structures that could feasibly sit in alongside his brilliant LP for Sahko last year. Alongside this, the A Side features three short form productions, with 291out's "Urania (Titoli Di Coda)" the highlight, sounding very much like the music you might hear during the end credits of a forgotten 80s sci-fi drama. Complementing this, sometime Sex Tags Mania artist Doc L Junior is given the whole of the B Side to draw out an expansive, epic synthscapes "Modul 2".

Review: This self titled debut album from the Factory Floor trio of Nik Void, Gabe Gurnsey and Dominic Butler shows just how far they've come from their early days of scuzzed angst ridden post punk, offering the sort of stripped back manipulation of machinery that makes their live shows so memorable. Ten tracks deep, Factory Floor sees the band turn in eight brand new tracks to complement the two burners previously released on DFA ("Two Different Ways" and "Fall Back") and has them ever more focused on perfecting the hypnotic beat. The opening call to arms "Turn It Up" is the track that makes you realize how appropriate an equation Factory Floor on DFA is and from here Void, Butler and Gurnsey successfully pummel your senses with a succession of burrowing motorik grooves and corrugating synth lines.
