RVDS - Moon on Milky Way

 

RVDS

Moon on Milky Way 12"

Smallville

Brilliant new record from the oddball house producer. Warm analog soundbaths for all hours of the day and night. Monday Rain is a relaxed warm-up track with playful 303 and Juno strings. Winter Moonness takes classic square-wave Chicago bounce into a psychedelic, keyboard mashing solo.

KMFH - Boat Party Bonus

Kyle Hall

Boat Party Bonus 12"

Wild Oats

Cool companion piece to KMFH's fairly epic Boat Party  LP. This one's aimed at the djs. The A-side contains a couple of soul-sample jams roughed up to the point where they become something else, a mutant railroad dub. The B-explores Hall's other fascination - twisted drum beatdowns.

Magic Touch - Nothing More

 

Magic Touch

Nothing More EP 12"

True Romance

Mr. Magic Touch, aka itinerant LA producer/dj Damon Palermo, takes a quick step away from 100% Silk for this winning ep on Tensnake's new imprint. The noticeable difference between this and his earlier eps for Silk and collaboration with Tokyo's Sapphire Slows is Palermo's embrace of full-throated diva emotion. The title track has NYC vocalist Fatha Green singing of love in a voice that transforms feeling to religious experience. Closer Move Your Body Into Me deftly combines the 90s vocal house feel with Palermo's earlier Gottsching -informed hypnohouse.

Joe - SlopeJoe

Slope 12"

Hessle

The Hessle crew continues to blaze their own path through beat driven music on this odd new ep from Joe. The tracks build tension in a novel manner. The title track pairs an unidentifiable whine up against an ominous horn build. Not exactly what comprises most killer dj tools, but it works. The second track, Maximum Busy Muscle sounds like a breakbeat anthem trapped in a techno grid.

The Stranger - Watching Dead Empires in Decay

 

The Stranger

Watching Dead Empires In Decay LP

Watching Dead Empires In Decay CD

Modern Love

Master conceptualist Leyland Kirby (The Caretaker/V/VM ) puts forth a moody requiem for Western hegemony. The music maintains the gauzy ephemerality of the much lauded Caretaker project, but instead of nostalgic/creepy ballroom music, the chassis for The Stranger is a bleak rhythmic skeleton. At certain points, the music draws from the percussive techniques of industrial forbears, such as on the optimistic Where Are Our Monsters Now, Where Are Our Friends. About to Enter a Strange New Period has Kirby in a reflective mode - the meandering synthetic horns are somewhat reminiscent of Popol Vuh.

Shifted - Bed of NailsShifted

Under A Single Banner LP

Under A Single Banner CD

Bed of Nails

Dungeon techno from the Mote Evolver/Blackest Ever Black veteran. The brief loops and attention to detail will appeal to fans of Thomas Brinkmann's clicks and cuts method as well as to dark travelers of the realms explored by Lucy and Sandwell District. Shifted also displays an equal talent for unsettling ambience (Story of AureaI) and bracing techno percussion (Wash Over Me).

Tusk Wax Twelve - Kalidasa

 

Kalidasa

Tusk Wax 12 12"

Tusk Wax

Excellent dubbed-out disco sounds from UK cosmonaut Kalidasa. The Ibiza reimagined for The Loft vibes are heavy. Ipotane works a classic rolling disco bassline, while the producer's take on Molly Cules explores an Italo influence, sounding like a more introverted version of the Norweigan cosmic disco producers.
