Review: Gone beyond. That's what they say when an (astro) pilot crashes to earth and takes the journey into the big sky. When Juan Trippe took that last flight little did he know that his re-incarnated self would be an electronic pioneer. In tandem with his co-pilot Guido Zen (his own father also a pilot) and Kyle Martin (from the Land Of Light) they formed Brain Machine and scaled the highest Peaks to bring back music both unearthly and intensely human. Are we all not stardust anyway? This music proves it, takes you out flips you over and rolls you in stardust. Don't try and think it through, make sense of it, grasp it - just wander in wonder and bask in beauty.
Get lost again.

Conditioning For Solitude (140 gram clear vinyl 12")
Cat: TMS 001. Rel: 20 Jun 16
  1. Conditioning For Solitude
  2. Body Burn
  3. 3 Minute Warning (Sheila Fleurrater remix)
Played by: James Friedman
Review: For the opening EP from Too Many Squares, Frank butters manages to gene-splice together the raw DNA from all of the ugly-beautiful sounds present in the birth of modern dance music.
"Conditioning for Solitude" is the hum of dark tubes, the slice and hiss of sharp synthesised percussion and the scream of blissful dementia. The mutant that existed for a brief and joyous frozen moment while disco was still birthing house.
"Body Burn” is the tropics with a black sun and Africanism with a stopwatch instead of a heart.
Recalling experimentalist forays by the likes of Liaisons Dangereuses, Patrick Cowley and Karen Finley, the 2 originals on offer manage to recall the raw passion of an era without feeling contrived or derivative.
The EP is rounded off by Sheila Fleurrater’s remix of “3 Minute Warning” which continues the pioneer-ist motif, albeit allying itself with a much more early industrial aesthetic.

Halloween/Escape From New York (Soundtrack)
 Add to cart
 in stock $18.63
Cat: SBR 156PIC. Rel: 20 Jun 16
  1. Halloween (2:57)
  2. Escape Form New York (3:34)
Review: Sacred Bones is not messing around when it comes to reissuing mythical songs from legendary soundtracks across the board, and their latest releases truly do get the old mouth-watering. This new picture disc contains 1979's "Halloween" on the A-side, and 1981's "Escape From New York", both timeless films that have left viewers awestruck thanks to, in part, their fantastic scores. You'll all recognise that Halloween chimes, those eerie chimes of coldwave synths, but perhaps Escape From New York is less immediately recognisable, but that's a shame because it is potentially the less aged of the two and still a track to break a set in half with something beautiful and unexpected.

Cat: SBR 157PIC. Rel: 20 Jun 16
  1. Assault On Precinct 13 (2:53)
  2. The Fog (3:02)
Review: Another burst of contemporary-sounding gems from John Carpenter film scores, and this is good news to both the collectors and the sample junkies. On this latest missile we have the famous brooding synths and trite '80s romance of "Assault On Precinct 13", still a much coveted album by the diggers and one that is often heard on the more expansive DJ sets; the B-side is made up of "The Fog", a 1980 piece of history that once again manages to contain a true 80's spirit without the predictability of many sings from that era. Wonderful and, of course, highly recommended.

Wat Voel Je Nou (limited red vinyl 7" repress)
Cat: KH 003. Rel: 20 Jun 16
  1. Wat Voel Je Nou (3:22)
  2. Geen Genade (3:47)
Review: A must for fans of Minimal Wave and Mannequin Records retroverts on offer here from Pascal Pinkert (Dollkraut) according to Knekelhuis themselves: he's working on his darker wave salvation, going by the moniker of De Ambassade. In the greyness by concrete of the Amsterdam suburbs. The dusty coldwave vibes on the title track are more reminiscent of X Mal Deutschland than Das Ding with its dark guitars and bass but it's still alright by us. On the flip is "Geen Grenade" a bit more pop-ish and upbeat. Something that you could imagine hearing in some Goth discotheque circa '83.

  4. Chirality (Plaid remix) (5:36)
  5. Track 5 (2:35)
Played by: Resident Advisor
Review: Life & Death's head honcho DJ Tennis serves up some brooding, pop inflected deep house for main room madness on "Divisions" featuring the rich vocals of Jeppe Kjellberg of Danish pop-tronica trio Whomadewho; expect to be hearing a lot of this one this year! We've also the more straight ahead, dark melodic journey track executed in the way that only a Life & Death record can be on "Chirality" featuring some intense atmosphere provided by Sophie Trudeau's (Godspeed You Black Emperor!) string orchestra direction. "Divisions" gets an equally dark and mysterious remix, full of rich synth leads and bleepiness by Frankfurt master Roman Flugel and "Chirality" gets an epic makeover by experimental electronica legends Plaid, which is equally worthy of your attention.
