Recommended: Avalon Emerson – Let Me Love & Steal EP

On October 12, we were presented with yet another sublime record from a young producer whose relatively meek recognition seems to not yet be totally commensurate with her solid product. The discerning Truants reader has been introduced to Avalon Emerson, the San Francisco transplant now living in Berlin, already through Truancy Volume 89, and her new […]

Truancy Volume 104: Big Strick

Last week, Fact Magazine posted their much passed-around 100 underrated DJs list, which we were very glad to see included Leonard Strickland – alias Big Strick. Raised in an influential household that had the Motown sound on the hi-fi all day everyday, Leonard began DJing in the early eighties which soon followed with throwing his own […]

Recommended: Murlo – Into Mist EP

It’s hard to be conservative with superlatives for an artist as singular as Murlo. With releases on Mixpak, Glacial Sound and Unknown to the Unknown as well as a host of other songs and refixes and an early entry in our Functions of the Now series, it’s safe to say Murlo had 2013 on smash. Even […]

Recommended: Life Between Screens (Curated by Manni Dee)

With the never-ending onslaught of the modern-day content wars, it’s appropriate sometimes to sit back and take a break from it all. Techno producer Manni Dee, of Perc Trax and Electronic Explorations fame, has done exactly this with his Life Between Screens compilation for WotNot Music.

Temporary Trax: CYPHR – Metanoia

The second in the Temporary Trax series comes in the form of “Metanoia” by CYPHR and it couldn’t be much further from the bright funk of the first. Most recently, the Her Records mainstay has drawn heavy doses of critical acclaim for his 6 track EP “Ekleipsis”. Much like that EP, “Metanoia” is a showcase […]

Recommended: Rival Consoles – Sonne

Last year long-standing Erased Tapes artist Rival Consoles released the Odyssey EP, his sixth outing with the London-based avant-garde label. We noted its “warm, sumptuous chords” and praised its consistent diversity.

Recommended: Ultrademon – The .XVX Files

Up from the all but evidently staying rabbit hole of seapunk, the style which the producer at hand is widely accredited for birthing a few years back, is innovator Albert Redwine, better known as Ultrademon, with his latest offering The .XVX Files.

Premiere: Mørkeblå – The Coldness Of A Jack-in (1991 Remix)

Mørkeblå’s Nowhere, OK caught our attention with some vigour earlier this year. A stirring release on the excellent Where To Now? label – it was confounding, nightmarish and chilling. The Italian producer’s latest effort is a full-length cassette release for Reckno called Pisces Sun, Capricorn Rising. It expands on his bizarrely affective approach to droning soundscapes, venturing into […]

Recommended: V/A – Weightless Volume One

Considering Mumdance and Logos have been responsible for some of our favourite productions over the last couple of years, we were particularly excited and intrigued to hear that the trailblazing duo are commissioning a brand new imprint together; Different Circles. Both artists have made significant innovations with their work in and around the grime spectrum, fueling our […]

Review: Vladislav Delay – VISA

Sasu Ripatti is, by definition, a veteran of electronic music. His work as Luomo saw him lauded at the turn of the century with the seminal vocal house LP Vocalcity. He has also ventured into minimal techno as Sistol, but it’s as Vladislav Delay where the majority of his work lies. It’s also arguably his most […]

Initially producing a host of housey RnB edits, the duo have recently turned to Korean vocal work for inspiration, setting in motion a host of bootlegs that will be compiled on the forthcoming […]
