    Anywhere Anyone (Remix)

    In tandem with Sub Pops deluxe CD and double-LP reissue of Dntels landmark Life Is Full of Possibilities album, we proudly present a pair of brand spanking new remixes of Anywhere Anyone pressed with utmost care on a DJ-friendly, limited-edition 12 single. Remix work on one side is by Silent Servant & Regis of the Berlin techno collective Sandwell Districtboth techno veterans who also collaborate under the name Sandra Electronics. The flipside contains a remix by MIA/Radiohead collaborator Pearson Sound, aka dubstep producer Ramadanman, who has been hailed by such modern tastemakers as Pitchfork, FactMag and Little White Earbuds; the latter even named Pearson Sound the defining artist of 2010, which frankly we find more than a little bit impressive.

    Solid State Survivor

    While Kraftwerk was emerging in Europe and became an influence and inspiration to the Japanese superstars, YMO stayed true to their unique sound.

    YMO's second album Solid State Survivor was released in 1979, and represented numerous crossover tracks from Techno to New Wave. Solid State Survivor is probably the most sampled YMO album, as over the years several artists performed numerous covers of Behind The Mask. This extremely popular album peaked at # 1 in several charts all over the world

    Music For The Jilted Generation

    The Prodigy's response to the sweeping legislation and crackdown on raves contained in 1994's Criminal Justice Bill is an effective statement of intent.

    Pure sonic terrorism, Music for the Jilted Generation employs the same rave energy that charged their debut but yokes it to a cause other than massive drug intake. Compared to their previous work, the sound is grubbier and less reliant on samples; the effect moved The Prodigy away from US influenced rave and acid house of the past and toward a uniquely UK vision of breakbeat techno that was increasingly allied to the invention of drum 'n bass.

    The Ringer mini album is a 32 minute, four-track excursion into the kind of wide-open spaces you might find if you set out to make techno with an afrobeat/ krautrock sensibility. Ringer locks together gloriously rich synthesizer arpeggios; ôWing Body Wingö slips from crisp clusters of disco percussion to Steve Reich polyrhythms; and in between are another two euphoric ripples of sound, ôRibbonsö and ôSwimmer.ö The techno heartbeat comes from Kieran HebdenÆs regular DJ residences over the last couple of years as well as his ongoing collaborations with legendary jazz drummer Steve Reid. Whether in the studio or live, Kieran and Steve often click into the kind of deep 4/4 grooves that can depart in any direction with a little adjustment. Ringer carries that minimal pulse over into Four Tet, and while KieranÆs trademark recuttings of jazz breaks may be less in evidence, his feel for harmony and melody is, as always, unmistakable.

  • Psychic Psychic Quick View

    DARKSIDE is the collaborative duo of guitarist/
    composer Dave Harrington and electronic
    producer Nicolas Jaar. DARKSIDE summon
    a hybrid of electronic music, psychedelic
    rock, and dancefloor techno with the sort of
    artistic depth and breadth for which the term
    "progressive" was coined. DARKSIDE's first fulllength album-released on Nico's own Other
    People label in conjunction with Matador
    Records-is called Psychic.

    DARKSIDE's Psychic is a watershed moment
    for the duo, a quantum leap forward from
    their 3-song debut, 2011's DARKSIDE EP. At
    any given moment, Psychic encompasses the
    ritualistic structures and methodologies of
    krautrock, the cosmic exploration of classic
    space-rock, and the immersive, body-moving
    transcendence of 21st century house and
    techno-but, working with the finishingeach-others'-sentences fluidity of kindred
    spirits, Dave and Nico synthesize it all into a
    living, breathing whole.

    DARKSIDE are deep listeners and creators
    of both who see little need for distinction
    between their favorite sounds. The result
    is Psychic, an album of uncompromising
    creative vision from two artists working at the
    peak of their powers.

    "Nocturnal, cerebral, sensuous, paradoxical, and intuitive."

    - Pitchfork

    "How did Nicolas Jaar and Dave Harrington manage to make exactly
    the music I want to listen to right now? (Maybe all the time?)"

    - The Fader

    "On listening to Nicolas Jaar's new bluesy electronica project with his
    guitarist Dave Harrington, Darkside, it's rather too easy to forget that
    he's just 21. This is seriously ambitious music, with the emphasis on

    Released late last year Tosca's 'Outta Here' saw the duo of Richard Dorfmeister and Rupert Hubert rip up the rule book and start again. Having spent two decades and seven albums practically defining downtempo, chill-out music here was an album with one thing on its mind, the dancefloor.

    Still some traditions are worth maintaining and so like with each of their previous albums the band now present 'Shopska', a reworked version of 'Outta Here' that puts each of the albums tracks into a radically new perspective from tough 3am Techno and bouncy Electronica through to spaced out Dub and beyond.

    Gold Nights

    Female/male duo White Hex (Tara Green and Jimi Kritzler)
    released their debut album Heat in 2012 released on Avant!
    Records. 2014 sees their return with the follow up full-length,
    Gold Nights. The album is the second in a series of three
    thematically connected records which is based on a period of
    three years. The album's themes include tackling the deaths of
    friends over the past few years and somehow staying optimistic
    through that loss.

    Recorded after shows in Paris, Berlin, New York and Melbourne,
    Gold Nights explores Italo disco, minimalist techno and the more
    primitive end of 1980's German underground. They embrace their
    love of high fashion, 1980's New York vogue techno and the
    mutant explorations of Whitehouse, Arthur Russell, Craig Leon
    and Gianni Rossi. Gold Nights retains certain elements of their
    beloved debut, but moves in a more sophisticated direction as a
    result of White Hex's vision and with the help of producer Alex
    Akers (Forces-Siberia Records).

    Disco Volante

    Disco Volante is the second studio album by American experimental Rock band Mr. Bungle. Released in 1995, it is considered by many to be the most experimental of all their albums, picking up inspiration from a wide variety of musical styles including Death Metal, Techno, '50s space age Pop, musique concrète and Italian avant-garde.

    Faith No More's vocalist Mike Patton also uses a great number of vocal effects boxes and samples throughout the album.

    The album's title refers to the name of the yacht of the same name featured in the James Bond film Thunderball. Disco Volante has been well received by critics, being called a 'totally original and new musical style, and an album that sounds like nothing that currently exists'. The track "Desert Search For Techno Allah" is described as 'a middle eastern Techno number that has to be heard to be believed.' This is a band whose sole purpose is to break all the pre-existing rules of music and doesn't think twice about taking chances.

    Tri Repetae

    Tri Repetae, the third album from Autechre finally made available again on vinyl, having been out of print on vinyl since 2001. On reflection, Tri Repeate stands tall as one of the most out-there (and if you know what that means...) and boundary-pushing releases from Ae ever. Going back to the group's roots as b-boy's, Tri... features ten variations on street sounds from hip-hop and techno to industrial and jungle. Released at a time when producers were ripe with ideas for cosmic breakbeat experimentation, Tri... mixed the glitchy twisted dynamics of EPs such as the criminal justice bill protest Anti and sculpted a long player that resembles some of the most 'floor friendly' Ae to ever grace a packed nightclub soundsystem. The ten tracks pulled influence from previous outings, from the glacial Amber chug of Overand to the Incunabula acid of Leterel. But the overall sound is one of mixing influence from the avant-garde of Iannis Xenakis, Edgard Varese & Tod Dockstar with the mid 90's post-hardcore sound of jungle.For anyone looking to get to grips with Ae but wanting something that bridges the gap between the early analogue escapism and the latter deconstructionist stance of elseq, Tri Repetae is the perfect point to dive into. Mixing elements of groups such as Coil at their most industrial, the austere techno of the Downwards crew and the cold yet funky electro of Man Parrish, they composed an album that still, twenty one years since its release, has one of the most singular sounds for anything resembling electro techno, and what other group can you think of who have you can say have ever managed that?

    He's the techno punk, the unboxable nomad: Berlin DJ and producer BOYS NOIZE will release his 4th solo album MAYDAY via Boysnoize Records. The third track off the new album, "Starchild", features Channy Leaneagh of Poliça, and has been chosen as the world record by Zane Lowe on his BEATS 1 show.

    Alex Ridha, better known as BOYS NOIZE, made his DJ debut at the age of 15, taking a teenager´s love of house and techno to a global scale. Accolades have been bestowed by Rolling Stone, who named him one of the "Top 10 DJ's Who Rule The World" and Beatport, who elected him "Best Electronic Act" 3 years in a row. He´s rocked the world's biggest stages, lit up Coachella three times, took Lollapalooza by storm, and headlined festivals and clubs on every continent - from Berlin techno temple Berghain to Fuji Rock in Japan to Justin Vernon's Eaux Claires Festival in the woods of Wisconsin.

    As an artist and producer, Ridha has created a sound and a vision that's peerless, uncompromising, and enduring - respected in the scene, banging from underground to mainstream, it flies in the face of convention at every turn. He's remixed Depeche Mode, Daft Punk, David Lynch, Feist and Nine Inch Nails, collaborated with Snoop Dogg, Erol Alkan, and Jarvis Cocker, worked on Mark Ronson's "Uptown Special" and most recently on the soundtrack for upcoming Oliver Stone's Snowden, and released group projects with genius pianist Chilly Gonzales (Octave Minds), Skrillex (Dog Blood), and Mr. Oizo (Handbraekes). The list of names alone speak volumes about Ridha's multifaceted approach.

    Now BOYS NOIZE is back with MAYDAY, his most dynamic album to date. Infectiously energetic, fusing the energy and spirit of punk with the raw power of modern techno and the early days of rave, MAYDAY exists as a new expression entirely, transporting the innocence of a bygone era into the here and now without ever sounding anachronistic or nostalgic. Collaborations with POLIÇA, HUDSON MOHAWKE, BENGA, REMY BANKS, SPANK ROCK, and some special secret guests (the liner notes are worth a read) broaden the range further than ever. "I always try to challenge myself as a producer and a musician," says Ridha. "Keeping the purity of electronic music but taking it somewhere new is the most difficult, and most motivating. MAYDAY is me taking the music I love to the future, no matter how uncertain the future seems."

    MAYDAY speaks for a generation that no longer gives a damn about boundaries. Walls are for breaking down. MAYDAY's for tearing them to shreds.

    Smoke The Monster Out (Discontinued) (On Sale)

    Londoner Damian Lazarus, now based out of L.A., is best known for founding the Crosstown Rebels label and helping shape the sound of contemporary techno in his twin roles as taste-making A&R and globally renowned DJ. Having been asked on countless occasions when he would step out from behind the decks and into the producer's chair, Lazarus has finally obliged and the results are far more unusual and engaging than what anyone could have imagined.

    Smoke The Monster Out is a rangy and cleverly paced narrative inspired chiefly by the dancefloor's play of darkness and light, but also classic love songs and emotive, gut wrenching pop music old and new. Though Lazarus' grounding in house and techno is apparent throughout, this record is really a song-based affair, full of unusual acoustic instrumentation and delicately wrought arrangements, which he wrote with collaborator Arthur Jeffes, son of the Penguin Cafe Orchestra's Simon Jeffes. The Rebels boss has taken a long view of his life as a music-lover, drawing on older influences as divers as Photek, Jeff Buckley and Bjork, taking their essence and suffusing it with the twisted dancefloor alchemy we associate with his DJ sets. Perhaps most significantly, Lazarus himself even sings on several tracks, investing his songs with his own distinct personality and quiet expressiveness.

    Worth EP

    Mas Ysa, the project of nomadic composer Thomas Arsenault, combines love songs, unabashed ecstatic pop, prayer, field recordings and techno into triumphant, danceable, melancholy folk music that pummels the heart rather than dances around it.

    Born in Montreal with formative years spent in San Paolo at hard-techno raves, Arsenault's life is one of human and musical experience rather than eye-searing laptop screens. After studying composition at Oberlin Conservatory, where he joined the Ohio-based Shinkoyo art collective, Arsenault headed west for San Francisco to assist kindred-spirit cult artist Warner Jepson.

    Eventually, Arsenault landed on Kent Avenue in Brooklyn, occupying a sprawling loft complex connected to the underground venues 285 Kent and Glasslands. There, he built a studio that yielded records by everyone from Cass McCombs to Laurel Halo, getting out of bed in the dead of night to write songs and record sonic fragments. During the day, Arsenault explored the other side of modern composition by collaborating with Rashaun Mitchell of the storied Merce Cunningham Dance Company.

    Born as a live experience in early 2012, Mas Ysa hoists this voracious music history and crashes it head-on with blunt emotional trauma. Early shows vacillated between dancefloor catharsis and inner pain, emphasizing both ritualistic transcendence and the universal bond of folk music.
