  8. Queen's Funeral (6:59)
Review: It's been a long time between drinks for Accident Du Travail, whose most recent release - a cassette of experimental, modern classical compositions for The Trilogy Tapes - was released way back in 2010. Tres Precieux Sang sees Julie Normal and Olivier Demeaux return to Will Bankhead's acclaimed experimental imprint. Stylistically, it explores similar territory to previous excursions, with the duo laying down a series of beat-less compositions built around droning harmonium chords, effects-laden woodwind parts, unsettling ambient electronics, and slowly unfurling textures. At times, it's curiously mournful, at others the music is strangely beautiful. Throughout, it remains both hypnotic and curiously intense.

  1. Into The Silly World (5:29)
  2. Imaginarium Essai (6:05)
  3. Zex Plongeon (4:55)
  4. Louis & Juno (4:51)
Review: You could never accuse Parisian artist Coni of releasing too much music; to date, the ClekClekBoom-affiliated artist has released just three EPs in four years. Clearly, these releases have impressed The Trilogy Tapes founder Will Bankhead, as he's snapped-up a four-track EP from the talented French producer. It's the A-side that sparkles the most immediately, beginning with the curious looped sound effects, slashed jazz chords, swinging rhythms and bubbling electronic hits of "Into The Silly World". Arguably even better is "Zex Plongeon". While not as thrillingly unusual as its' predecessor, it feels more obviously tailored to club play. It's creepy, deep, drowsy and tense, with slowly pulsing chords and ghostly textures stretching out over a tidy techno groove.

  1. Track 1 (26:16)
  2. Track 2 (10:09)
  3. Track 3 (12:39)
Review: Ah yes, this is where Will Bankhead's The Trilogy Tapes finally gets back to its roots and delivers the real weirdo stuff. Since the label's vinyl debut, Andrew Coltrane's intense Systems Of Chaos, TTT has been gradually drawn to the stranger strains of house and techno, but it's always been obvious that Bankhead's preference lies in the purely experimental. Ex Wolf Eyes member and Hanson Records boss Aaron Dilloway finally steps up on the label's catalogue with a furious bunch of noise tunes that, well, are simply indescribable in words. Simply described as being able to be played at any speed on the 12" itself, the two long form tracks are totally off-the-wall, ranging from the cacophonous, to the melancholic and the lo-fi. Originally issued on tape several years ago, this remains one of Dilloway's most interesting releases to date and it makes a fine addition to the TTT's singular catalogue. For the daring minds...

Contest For Supremacy

Cat: TTT 029. Rel: 20 Apr 15
  1. Nuclear Winter (6:07)
  2. Geiger Count (7:39)
  3. Zero Point (9:11)
Review: Contest for Supremacy is DJ Spider and Marshallito's second release for Will Bankhead's label and features three quite mind boggling productions. If you lock into Rinse on the regular you should be familiar with lead cut "Nuclear Winter" which features their trademark sticky programming and bizarre vocal incantations before a midpoint deviation into the most delightful jazz piano breakdown and sampled African chants. The grubby beatdown of "Geiger Count" bristles with kinetic energy and sci fi overtones, just wait for the track to unravel as a voice utters "hello, I am from the planet Mars and I need help". B side hogger "Zero Point" is the nearest thing to a banger here and is rife with more unsettling, post-apocalyptic vocal samples.

Deep House
  1. Jubilee
  2. Oshima Flicks
  3. Pop Song
  4. Calvin & Hobbes
Review: "Good things come to those that wait" goes the old saying, and it's fair to say there have been some delays in this heavyweight debut TTT slab from Future Times captain Max D. First announced back in January, Drizzling Glass finally arrives with Will Bankhead's label in the midst of a peerless run of releases - watch out for the upcoming Zennor drop from Bristol pair Pev and Andy Mac. If you liked last year's House Of Woo long player from Mr Dunbar, you will be all over the four cuts here which exhibit a similarly loose and carefree approach to rhythm and fizzy melodies. Do check the double dose of B Side brilliance that is "Pop Song" and "Calvin & Hobbes" with the former's subtle beauty embellished and accompanied by trademark Dunbar percussion on the latter.

Aphasia (12")
Cat: TTT 035. Rel: 10 Aug 15
  1. Aphasia (6:25)
  2. I Only Hit You 'Cause I Love You (5:22)
  3. Rook (6:46)
  4. Schropferesque (7:33)
Review: Aphasia finds Dutch producer Ekman return for a single release on Will Bankhead's expertly curated label The Trilogy Tapes after a sell-out debut turn on the compelling UAE concern Bedouin Records. The title track may confuse those Ekman fans seduced by the clutch of 2014 releases from the Dutchman that were defined by their guttural, frazzled take on electro as "Aphasia" offers a new sense of production clarity. There is a spectral feel that tends to distract you from all the little detail that makes up the production, though the epic, gauzy, lo-fi madness of "I Only Hit You 'Cause I Love You" is worthy of a Panzerkreuz release (shame about the title). "Rook" hits pretty hard too, with snapping hi-hats and a quite unpredictable lead acid line.

Clarky Cat (12")
Cat: TTT 041. Rel: 14 Mar 16
  1. Aguirre (7:02)
  2. Clarky Cat (4:28)
  3. Shark (7:18)
  4. Clearwater Bay (5:43)
Review: Four Legs are better than two! Born Free man Samo 'DJ' Forsberg continues his assault on 2016 with this killer TTT 12" as Four Legs alongside Skudge overlord Elias Landberg. The pair have already issued a 12" together under the Split Image name for Swedish label New Dimensions (which you should totally check out) and this Four Legs stuff finds Forsberg and Landberg partaking in some no-nonsense, heads down machine funk. That's the flavour for opening cut "Aguirre" whilst title track "Clarky Cat" (Chris Morris reference anyone?) finds the Swedish duo veering off into deeper, psychedelic territory. "Shark" is as marauding as the sea creature it takes its name from, whilst "Clearwater Bay" ends on a more serene note.

Blue Dot (12")
Cat: TTT 043. Rel: 04 Apr 16
  1. Blue Dot (7:01)
  2. The Fludd (6:51)
  3. Veto Plank (5:47)
Review: Call Super last used the Ondo Fudd alias back in 2014, serving up a much-loved EP on The Trilogy Tapes. Here he dons the alias once more, returning to Will Bankhead's imprint to explore more humid, tropical influenced pastures. He begins with "Blue Dot", a delightfully evocative fusion of drifting jazz horns, ambient chords and occasional rainforest percussion. He ratchets up the intensity a little on "The Fludd", where undulating electronic percussion hits, tropical textures and snaking saxophone lines spar drowsily. Finally, "Veto Plank" sees him back on house territory, overlaying a sturdy rhythm with fevered noises and sticky electronics

  1. Oronimbus
  2. Plot Query
  3. Cyan Lean
  4. Tilt March
Review: Philadelphia duo _moonraker delivered the excellent Remota Instruere EP on Philadelphia concern Great Circles earlier this year, and they obviously caught the attention of Trilogy Tapes mastermind Will Bankhead, as the Lowjit Vagrants EP marks their debut release for the label. Their highly experimental brand of techno is the kind of thing designed to warp minds and confuse limbs on the dancefloor, with the bitcrushed syncopations of "Oronimbus" offering the most floor-friendly cut here. "Plot Query" sends things even further into space with its 145bpm pace offset by a starry field of sound drifting by. "Cyan Lean" sounds quite literally like moondust falling through the atmosphere, while "Tilt March" sees their sound retreat into a sonic slurry with all the complexity of Actress and Morphosis jamming underwater. Essential wares from TTT once again...

Kicked Out Of Everywhere

coming soon $TBA
Cat: TTT 044. Rel: 20 Jun 16
  1. Bleeps
  2. LKF (feat Scott Young vocals)
  3. Medellin
  4. Downer
Review: The forty -fourth release on Will Bankhead's highly lauded The Trilogy Tapes comes from Born Free co-founder Samo DJ, previously responsible for a fine cassette mix for the label as well as that Four Legs 12" with Skudge's Elias Landberg. Given the Swede's eclectic approach, it's perhaps unsurprising that Kicked Out of Everywhere is a pleasingly mixed-up affair. Opener "Bleeps" drags the fuzzy, sparse and bass-heavy sound of Early British techno kicking and screaming into the industrial techno age (admittedly via the broken beats of West London), while "LKF" is simultaneously dreamy, trippy and rhythmically intense. Some may hear the influence of early Belgian techno in the slippery throb of "Medellin", while the weird, spaced-out "Downer" sounds like hazy jazz after several shoe boxes full of Ketamine. Samo DJ for President!

  1. Hoops (5:51)
  2. 75011 (5:21)
  3. Glasshouse Mountains (mix 1) (4:54)
  4. Glasshouse Mountains (mix 2) (5:15)
Played by: Skudge
Review: Given the respective recent outputs of Low Jack and D.K, you'd expect this first collaborative missive under the Slack DJ's alias to be rather good. It is, of course, though it's probably the most experimental release either producer has been involved with. Opener "Hoops" sets the tone, offering a befuddled trip through chopped-up, constantly changing leftfield techno territory - all beaten-up rhythms, dubbed-out electronics and odd noises. There's a slightly more dreamy feel to "75011", though it still sounds like it was recorded in a cement mixer full to the brim with sand and gravel. Flip for two takes on "Glasshouse Mountain", where D.K's gorgeous synthesizers are put through the ringer in the company of edgy, otherworldly rhythms and end-of-days effects.

Vida (LP)
Cat: TTT 042. Rel: 13 Jun 16
  1. Igual A Si (5:09)
  2. Pelos Olhos De Osiris (6:57)
  3. Arestas Do Tempo (5:52)
  4. Sol A Nascer (7:51)
Review: There is certainly a devilish streak to The Trilogy Tapes this year, the label's output redolent of its earlier years when Will Bankhead wilfully put out the oddest tapes amidst mixes from Ben UFO and Kassem Mosse. Following some quite superb records from Accident Du Travail and Carl Gari & Abdullah Miniawy, TTT slip back into the international avant-garde for the Vida LP from Portuguese duo Tropa Macaca. Formed of Andre Abel and Joana da Conceicao, Tropa Macaca are a long-running experimental act who fans of the Software label may remember for the Ectoplasma single a few years ago. Freeform electronic experimentation is the order of the day on Vida, as Abel and da Conceicao burrow deep into the world of texture, tone, timbre and, occasionally, rhythm.
