'Intercepts' is a declassified dispatch of industrial espionage and ambient adventures from the chambers of Pye Corner Audio and Alessio Natalizia aka Not Waving. Inspired by the arcane, furtive world of spy rings - from the Rosenburgs to the Cambridge Five and the Duquesne case - they present encrypted analog communiques resonating with the mystery and drama of those covert operations. Pye Corner Audio sets out a killer suite of signature, lustrous synth arpeggios and soft-soled but driving bass perfect for purring around European cities behind blacked out windows, whilst Not Waving presents a set of precipitous kosmicshe drones, pastoral cues and adrenalised but ice-cool sci-fi techno. Psst, one for those who know…!
Velour (Hyetal & Julio Bashmore) - The Tower/Plato's Retreat MP3
Low Jack lands his debut LP of exotic, esoteric riddims on L.I.E.S. after a slew of white-hot, down-slow club bangers. Originally commissioned as a live performance at the Quai Branly Museum (MQB) of indigenous art, the 'Garifuna Variations' feature percussive samples taken from the museum's collection of recordings from Honduras, Central America and remodelled into Low Jack's signature technoid gyrations. You'd be hard pushed to pass them off as peaktime dancefloor tackle, but as a flavour of Low Jack's oeuvre it's his strangest and most intriguing sensation to date, scudding from humid, distorted soundscapes to blown out pan pipe ritual, and roiling, effluent industrial groan with a consistently psychedelic and restrained approach that calls to mind some Legowelt's oddest missions and equally the outsider black metal zones of Edasi/Ishtisshad, or Cut Hands' vodoun incursions.
Mathew Jonson and The Mole, Peter Van Hoesen, and Blue Hour remix tracks from Tobias.' 'A Series Of Shocks' LP for Ostgut Ton. Canadaians at the controls, Jonson and The Mole give a masterclass in the art of subtle, swinging build with trimmed electro drums and pendulous, scissoring synthlines guaranteed to trap bvodies ont he floor, whereas PvH takes a more atmospheric route with his acidic rework of 'Cursor Item Only' and Blue Hour burns up 'He Said' as an alarming techno romp.
A sonic journey into John Cage and surroundings by renowned Italian composer Agostino di Scipio and his talented students. On December 9th, 2012, upon invitation from the Associazione Scarlatti, Agostino di Scipio and his students at the San Pietro a Majella Conservatory gave a performance of a very rare piece -- John Cage's Sculptures Musicales. The performance was planned out by Dario Sanfilippo, based on the few annotations left by Cage (which in turn followed an idea Cage took from Marcel Duchamp): the "musical sculptures" are sound blocks shaped by either electronic or acoustic instruments, sound blocks that should stay flat and stable in longer or shorter spans of time -- "constant sounds in a single envelope" -- as Cage wrote. The idea for this particular performance was to build prolonged sound textures separated by silent pauses, of duration roughly proportional to the loudness of the textures. The means to achieve that, however, were rather unstable and precarious in their sonic behavior: they included a self-built analog synth (Stefano Silvestri), a set of recycled mechanical objects and electronic circuits making up a kind of hybrid feedback network (Salvatore Carannante), an intricate computer patch of largely unpredictable -- but not random -- behavior (Dario Sanfilippo) and a "prepared cello" (Chiara Mallozzi). The sounds made with these means, as the piece was performed, are connoted by a tension due to the continuing attempt of the four performers to keep the sound level constant: not an easy task, given the idiosyncratic sound generation technologies involved, all of which remain critically sensitive to slight internal imperfections (e.g. Stefano's synth) or to the events in the surrounding environment (e.g. Salvatore's recycled feedback devices), and given that the four performers were sitting far from one another, at the four angles of a large cave (at the St. Elmo castle, in Naples). What is peculiar, upon listening, is this uncertain stasis, this insecure and dynamic balance among components, a local instability contrasting with the larger framework consisting of few monolithic elements. It's always the case, with Cage's work, that what seems to suggest a rather contemplative and ecstatic perspective, in actuality requires an incessant struggle, a demanding commitment and an enduring care for actions pursued in the moment.

SND - Newtables (Special Extended Edition) MP3
*Second in a series of three extended reissues from SND - Initial copies on transparent Green and Yellow Vinyl, 12-tracks fully remastered from DAT tapes by Rashad Becker at D&M* Mark Fell and Mat Steel’s second EP as SND was released in 1999, a year after their debut ‘Tplay’. It continued to explore their distinct, highly individual take on electronic minimalism, House and UK Garage stripped to its bare bones. This extended reissue features the original 6 tracks of ’newtables’, plus 6 previously unheard recordings from the same sessions - all fully remastered by Rashad Becker from the original DAT tapes. The tracks more or less split themselves into three distinct categories: the first detailing the brilliant swing and shuffle of their reduced UKG mutations, with ’22’ in particular perfecting the balance between academic reduction and kinetic, feminine motion. The second outlines a more linear approach utilising reduced House and Techno templates, while the last includes more experimental works such as the proper fwd bass-pulse arrangements on the previously unheard B2 and the frequency fxxckery of closing track D3. This excellent reissue and the series as a whole really is a massive eye-opener for anyone unfamiliar with this incredible, important early material. Huge recommendation.
Inga Copeland's limited 7", only 250 copies made, and it includes one of her best tracks, Smitten. You can tell this is about the split up between her and Dean Blunt and the dissolution of Hype Williams. Much more direct than her LP.
Alessio Natalizia aka Not Waving, aka one half of Walls introduces Polish multi-instrumentalist Wojciech Walesa to Ecstatic and the world at large with 'Crippled Syntax'. Described by the label as "9 tone poems inspired by the infinitude of prime numbers and a luddite approach towards music technology… 30 minutes of desiccated rhythm tracks, water-logged samples, and primordial drones" the session folds and unfolds between wayward minimal techno patterns, fractured electro and drily exotic cyberdub all gleaned from a setup of Juno 106, Boss SE50 drum machine, samplers and FX at his studio in Konin, Poland between end of 2012 and early 2014.
Pixelord - Polygon Fane MP3
Shapeshifting, footworking techno/bass prisms and ADD editing from Russia's Pixelord, backed with Curl Up, Druid Cloak and Thomas White remixes. 'Polygone Fane' is a kinetic colourburst of ideas twining garage techno helixes in 'Oasis' alongside the staggered Detroit-style hi-tech jazz of 'DSL Dream Corp', the chromatic waltz of 'Tumblr Girl' and lushest boogie footwork romance on the title track.
"Omicron Segment" is a unconventional language album. At the same time, it has been conceived with a logical thread that develops in two different paths. The first part has been inspired and contaminated by the stereophonic game of seventies electric jazz, such as the track "Attitudini Binaurali." Each element has its own dynamic, a proper space where sound is perceived and acquires its dimension. The artist doesn't want to give precise landmarks shaping the sound with the contribution of the digital form, and the help of dedicated expanders with that typical seventies sound, drums patterns not always in the foreground alternating smooth sections with complex rhythms.
The second part starts with "Asymmetrical Ritual," a kaleidoscopic mixture of synth arrangements and Afro elements followed by some contemporary Drexcyian electro cuts created with the help of the Mini Moog "Little Phatty" android sound, such as "Quadrichromatic" and "Yarkovsky Effect." This album increases the need of originality and brings the echoes of restlessness of today's anxieties.
