Space Dimension Controller


690x1000_fitbox-nfpr_sdc_djmix

The first major release from Space Dimension Controller (Jack Hamill) under Ninja Tune comes in the form of an 8 year old bedroom recording. SDC has released a few LPs and EPs through R&S and Clone Royal Oak but 2016 sees Ninja Tune releasing archive recordings of his first ever produced album (recorded when he was just 18) ‘Orange Melamine‘. Crunchy tattered sounds and enjoyably odd, this album is also steeped in audio and visual references from 80’s and 90’s sci-fi films and animations; from The Guyver, Short Circuit, The Gobots, and Ghostbusters through to The Fifth Element, Escape from New York and Power Rangers.

Mark Pritchard


Mark-Pritchard

With a prolific career that spans over two decades, Mark Pritchard has certainly ‘been there, done that’ – musically. The UK-born, Sydney-based producer’s credits not only cross genres, but in several cases, have inspired fresh directions within them. Between his time in iconic early-’90s groups like Global Communication, Jedi Knights, and Reload, plus an array of solo aliases including Harmonic 313 and Troubleman, the UK producer made ambient, electro, house, acid, instrumental hip-hop, and broken beat, among other styles and hybrids. ‘Under the Sun‘ is deeply atmospheric and richly impressionistic, largely ambient….and strictly not for the clubs.

Matthew ‘Moog’ Bourne


Matthew-Bourne

Pianist and composer Matthew Bourne first came to national attention as one of the winners of the Perrier Jazz Awards in London, 2001. In that same year he graduated from Leeds College of Music with a reputation as being fearlessly unpredictable. He is a passionate explorer of sound, possessed with a burning desire to make music on anything old, broken or infirm. Of late Bourne has turned his attention to the world of analogue synthesisers… Continue reading “Matthew ‘Moog’ Bourne”

Seven Lies of Djrum


DjRUM

Djrum (pronounced ‘drum’, but also known as Dj Rum) is producer Felix Manuel currently based in London. His music is deep and jazzy influenced with a sprinkle of Techno, dubstep and future garage added to the mix. His first LP Seven Lies was released on April 22, 2013 via 2nd Drop Records and, aside from several EPs before that, it’s the first collection of tunes I heard from him…..loving it!

Autolux – Pussy’s Dead


autolux

Autolux formed in 2001, a trio of multi-instrumentalists from Los Angeles giving an Avant-garde rock sound mixed with Shoegaze and Dream-pop. I had actually heard a remix of an old song of theirs – Turnstile Blues (UNKLE Remix) – from 2007 but they very recently found my attention again with their latest offering Pussy’s Dead, mainly because it was produced by BOOTS (mega prolific producer-of-the-moment….as mentioned in a previous post)

iTAL tEK – Hollowed


ital-tek

Brighton based electronic musician Alan Myson, AKA iTAL tEK, may well have just released the most beautifully haunting, experimental IDM album of 2016. Very much a dark and, at times bleak, soundtrack style album ‘Hollowed‘ still retains the remnants of his earlier grime/dubstep work but now contains some deep explorations down cinematic passageways with unexpected turns. Definitely an album for listening…..through headphones! Continue reading “iTAL tEK – Hollowed”

Nils Frahm’s Nonkeen


 

nonkeen_portrait_1

Nonkeen is a side project by Nils Frahm and childhood friends Frederic Gmeiner and Sebastian Singwald. The trio first met at primary school in Hamburg and throughout the 90s they would send each other their recordings, meeting each summer to perform their own material. A decade later they have collated hours of sessions, recorded over the years, adding parts to some of their childhood recordings and sampling others. They would pick their favourite passages and bounce them to computer to stitch them together and after eight years they decided they had finally finished an album.

The MoWax Return with Elliott Power


elliottnowness

Although technically speaking this is not the resurrection of legendary trip-hop label MoWax rather than a co-release of Elliott Powers debut ‘Once Smitten’ with Marathon Artists/MoWax. The first release to feature the MoWax logo since 2002, James Lavelle has taken a lot of interest in Elliotts work and it’s clear to see why he would want to have the iconic label attached to it. With Elliott having great influence from artists coming out from the 90s downtempo dance and trip-hop scene, this album is a call back to that era whilst still sounding fresh and relevant.
