Shed
Killer LP
50 Weapons

Gatefold double LP version. The third full-length from Shed eschews gimmickry for serious signal noise, strong beat-patterns, and massive power in the bass area. Rich in variety on tracks like "Silent Witness," a massive groover, to "I Come by Night," a real big four-to-the-floor slammer, to nice and lovely melodic tracks like "Gas Up" or the album version of the pre-single track, "The Praetorian." Once again the album feels like one big piece. Every track accepts the subordinate role in this game, and all the tracks are hits. Made for the pimping PA in your car, for home listening (at your neighbor's cost) or also to enjoy with a good pair of headphones. Aimed to be more homogeneous, the album is first and foremost a true techno love story.

Deadbeat

Drawn And Quartered 2LP
BLKRTZ

Scott Monteith aka Deadbeat releases an album for his own label BLKRTZ. It has been 12 years since Monteith quietly launched his Deadbeat music project with an unassuming performance on the street outside a Montreal café as part of the first edition of the city's now internationally-lauded MUTEK festival. And while the venues and audiences have grown steadily and seriously in the years since, the crackling dub sonics, deep grooves, and rumbling bass which characterized that performance have remained a constant in his live and recorded work, and earned him a substantial number of devoted followers the world over in the process. Having worked with a virtual who's-who of the most respected labels in the industry over the last decade, Monteith now takes the plunge into the murky depths of labelhood, launching his BLKRTZ imprint with no less than a full album of new material. "When I received the news a few months ago that ~scape was officially closing its doors, I was incredibly sad to hear it." says Monteith from his new home in Berlin. "Though I hadn't worked with them in a few years, I always saw ~scape as the natural home for a very important part of my work. Not necessarily the more listening side of things per se, but certainly the most unconcerned with genre or function, from a creative standpoint the most free, I guess. Barbara and Stefan worked very hard to promote a great deal of quite marginalized material over the years and did a lot to help me and many other artists out personally who otherwise would have had a much harder time of it. Though I'll be concentrating on my own work for the first few releases, it's my hope that BLKRTZ can serve a similarly honorable purpose in the years to come." In celebration of the label's inaugural release, Monteith has teamed up with long-time friend and world renowned video artist, Lillevan, to create an immersive audio/visual performance quite unlike any other.
