Afrikan Sciences – Theta Wave Brain Sync 2LP (Deepblak)

Atmospherically dense, rhythmically complex, unabashedly synthetic and absolutely magnetic. Afrikan Sciences follow-up to his 2011 debut “Means And Ways” is an expedition to the fringes and beyond of modern House and Techno production. A deeply rewarding listen. Watch out for forthcoming material on PAN (UK).

Beautiful Swimmers – Son 2LP (Future Times)

Elektro Guzzi – Parquet 2LP (Macro)

Further Reductions – Woodwork LP (Cititrax)

Lush, deep and esoteric productions from Brooklyn duo featuring Katie Rose, and Shawn O’Sullivan of Vaupateen (L.I.E.S.)

Gunnar Haslam – Mimesiak 2LP (L.I.E.S.)

Alternating wildly from Afro-Tropical infused rhythm workouts to ultra austere and incredibly restrained industrial electronics akin to early Pan Sonic, Haslam weaves together an intricate tapestry of seemingly disparate sounds for his debut full-length release on L.I.E.S.

Russell Haswell – 5″ Vinyl Series Collection LP (Haswellstudio)

Low Jack – Garifuna Variations LP (L.I.E.S.)

Like a tropical storm, breathtaking and deadly! Highly recommended!

Maria Minerva – Histrionic LP (Not Not Fun)

Opera Mort – Dedales LP (Alter)

Top-Shelf contemporary avant-garde electronics from France. A strange and unique hymn to the Otherworld!

Panoram – Everyone Is A Door LP (Firecracker Recordings)

Dusty minimal rhythms and gooey synthesizer slow jams for the Skylab lounge. Smudged and hazy electronics to sip Tang to. Highly recommended for fans of Boards of Canada, Pye Corner Audio, “Ambient” era Aphex Twin, and early Seefeel. Featuring a hand printed tip-on style jacket. Strictly limited, no repress.

Omar S.Romancing The Stone 2LP (FXHE)

More master cuts from the one-and-only Omar S. Straight from Detroit.

Marcus Schmickler & Julian Rohrhuber – Politiken Der Frequenz LP (Editions Mego)

New work from German composer Marcus Schmickler and cultural/social theorist Julian Rohrhuber. Inspired by Alain Badiou’s tract Le Nombre et les Nombres, featuring Schmickler’s trademark electronic production and mixed choir!
