Review: A newly invigorated Avian is back on course after closing sister label Mira, and is now an equal home to outer limits sound experiments and peak time techno weapons. Enter Lituus, aka Chicago artist Connor Camburn, who debuts on the label after a string of cassette releases on Brave Mysteries, Notice Recordings and Marzuka Editions. 19805.-_19905 is a series of single take recordings on hardware instruments. He is quoted as saying that he looked to "express ideas of the unravelling or "de-composition" of musical or architectural spaces through musical forms imagined as inverted contours and negative spaces." Tracks such as "PRTN:_001/.1" and "PRTN:_003/.1" feature not more than an arpeggio whose repetition wanders aimlessly, but no doubt engages this listener with the sense of trance that it induces. PRTN:_001/.2" inflicts the high pitched ringing of an oscillator at full rate alongside feedback and background tape noise. On "PRTN:_003/.2" the delicate melody of an analogue chime dances atop of a flanged signal, sounding like cars speeding over a motorway, it's quite brilliant in its simplicity.

Radio Mohave (12" in die-cut sleeve)

  5. Stepping In (4:20)
Review: With their respective careers already seeing them achieve great things in the world of gutter techno, Simon Haydo and Peder Mannerfelt don't really have too much to prove to anyone but themselves, but still they step up to Shifted and Ventress' Avian label with a record that confirms there are always new directions to head down within the bounds of noise-focused 4/4. There is actually a noticeable minimalism about much of the music on Radio Mohave, as fine slithers of percussion dart nimbly around the more bloated tones and textures of the music. Even so, the synths and feedback is handled with care so as to exude an atmosphere that runs deeper than simple distortion fireworks, leaving you with a decidedly affecting release that should tickle the synapses very nicely indeed.

  2. Arrangement In Monochrome II
  3. Second Wash
  4. Entartung
  5. Lenine
Review: This second Arrangements in Monochrome 12" in a strange hardcore techno kind of way is a lot more delicate than its forbearer. These subtleties are best heard in this record's less visceral tracks like the deep Italian brand of bassline rhythms experienced in "Second Wash", to "Lenine", a track which could easily find its way to the record collection of Paul Purgas, and "The Incoherent", a production reminiscent of Milton Bradley's earlier works. They are, however, off set by pounding productions found in the under water Mike Parker modulations of "Arrangement In Monochrome II" and the dirty thumps of a Mike Dehnert sounding "Entartung".

Review: Shadowy Swedish duo SHXCXCHCXSH are back with another full length on Shifted esteemed Avian imprint, with SsSsSsSsSsSsSsSsSsSsSsSsSsSsSs. Always the pranksters, their cryptic language pushes the threshold yet again with the LP's 15 tracks (most come in at around three minutes) taking on increasing variations of lower and upper case. Dark and challenging freeform techno that turns the usual conventions of techno on its head, featuring harsh and textural power electronics plus the blatant abuse of looping, tape delays and excessive overdrive. Deconstructed rave aesthetics drowned in field recordings and surface noise throughout: heavy!

Review: The Purification Loops may be Sigha's debut proper on Avian, but the Berlin-based producer is no stranger to the label operated by Shifted and Ventress. There have been numerous Sigha remixes on Avian releases since the label was established, and Avian have also revealed he was behind the self-styled "S & M techno tools" project A Vision Of Love. Some six tracks deep, The Purification Loops find Sigha "blurring the lines between the dance floor and the ritual chamber" and it fits right in with the direction explored recently by anonymous Swedish duo SHXCXCHCXSH on their Avian return. Prolonged repetition seems to be the order of the day, even if this takes a more meditative form on "Loop Three" or club ready in others - "Loop Four" and "Five" seem destined to test the structures of the more heady techno clubs.
