100 Percent Dope
100 Percent Dope (heavyweight vinyl 12" in die-cut sleeve)
Cat: CPU 01100100. Rel: 26 Aug 21
Electro
  1. Bad RGB Controller (6:24)

  3. Float Back To The Surface (5:16)
  4. Throwing Shade (4:38)
Review: Electro stalwarts Central Processing Unit look to Texan electro maestro Phillip Washington aka Cygnus for their latest 12" offering. In return, the studio wizard cooks up the sort of interplanetary sounds you would expect: 'Bad RGB Controller' sounds just like a malfunctioning bit of digital machinery. 'CPU Records' is a cyborg love song with talkbox vocals and crunchy drum hits, then '
Float Back To The Surface' gets even more frosted with its brushed metal drums and synths. Closer 'Throwing Shade' carries on in the same frosty aesthetic but with a nice corrugated bassline bumping down low.

Electro
  1. Come On Let's Get It (5:21)
  2. Manchester (5:03)
  3. Robotech (4:20)
  4. Soi Boi (5:20)
Review: We're always eager to hear any new material from Texan electro expert Phillip Washington aka Cygnus. His latest release titled Come On Let's Get It inaugurates Lost Control 2097, the new label of the long running Manchester/Berlin based party run by Black Eyes, that holds an NTS Radio residency under the same name. From the bleepy Motor City influenced electro funk of the title track, he then shift's bears on the deep and heady Dopplereffekt vibes of 'Manchester'. On the flip, it's all about the doomy and bass driven bombardment of 'Soi Boi' with a rather intimidating vocal delivery atop sounding like a Decepticon.

Review: Although he's now one of the global electro scene's most admired and storied producers, there was a time when Philip Washington's releases as Cygnus were largely ignored. That was certainly the case with Cybercity Z Ro, his debut album, when it was originally released way back in 2012. Yet as this first ever vinyl pressing proves, it remains one of his most stunning collections of cuts. It does of course contain a high number of superb, sci-fi-fired electro workouts, but also atmospheric and immersive tracks that variously combine elements of acid, IDM, ambient and, perhaps most surprisingly, dub techno. If the album passed you by eight years ago, make sure you check it out this time around: we guarantee that you won't be disappointed.

  2. My Secret Data (5:01)
  3. Metroid C64 (2:59)
  4. Connection Error (7:00)
  5. Votoms (5:52)
Review: Texas-based electro stalwart Cygnus first appeared on Craigie Knowes back in 2018 via a contribution to the Scottish label's third annual "War Child Fundraiser" release. Here he returns to the imprint for a label debut proper that also marks the prolific producer's first outing of 2020. There's much to enjoy amongst the five tracks, from the rumbling bass, 1990 style bleeps and gentle electro beats of "Ebony Starlight", to the sludgy experimental analogue wonkiness of "Metroid C64" and the bustling sci-fi funk of "Votoms". Arguably best of all though is "Connection Error", a delightfully positive, melodious and emotive club electro jam that's guaranteed to put a smile on your face.

Electro
  1. Cygnus - "Download Her" (4:31)
  2. Kuldaboli - "Minningar Og Ventingar" (3:35)
  3. Rodney - "This Isn't Something I Want Anymore" (5:09)
  4. Noamm - "Telecommunication" (3:52)
Review: If icy, robotic club electro is your thing, we'd recommend picking up this multi-artist EP from Luke Eargoggle's Stilleben Records imprint. Cygnus kicks things off with the sleazy hustle of "Download Her", a decidedly wonky but on-point number that comes complete with Egyptian Lover style spoken word vocals, before Kuldaboli delivers a funky, weighty and stripped-back club rocker rich in twisted acid bass, mind-altering noises and robotic club beats. Over on side B, Rodney weighs in with the up-tempo deep space rumble of "This Isn't Something I Want Anymore", whose acid style bassline is funky as hell (and twice as hot), while Naoamm channels the spirit of both Kraftwerk and Drexciya on the bleep-laden heaviness of "Telecommunication".
