Review: Best let your friends and family know, things are about to get pretty Wicker Man, for want of a better comparison. An expansion of Gazelle Twin's 2018 album, Pastoral (Anti-Ghost Moon Ray), we step into the kind of territory that reminds you Britain wasn't always a nation of shopkeepers and an island full of bankers - a record made for 21st Century solstice lovers and neolithic ceremonies. A synth folk pagan workout that's beautiful but ominous.

"Here lies our ancient future, Deep England: our hope and compassion in the chokehold of power and glory. Hand in hand, here we cry our rage: summoning a lament into the ether, a divine androgynous force, a transcendental purge of the dizzying chaos of post-truth Britain," say the artists involved. Unnerving, eternal, pared back, atmospheric, choral and serene, it's a trip in all senses of the word.

Review: Numero serve up this glorious ode to software generated soundscapes that emerged in the 90s after decades of brown corporate banality. In part helped along by access to the internet, the PC revolution also allowed for these vibrant sounds to emerge. Described as "the soundtrack to the screen saver fever dream we're all trying to climb back into" Numero 95 is a wistful and whimsical ambient collection with pastoral shades, smooth jazz and new age overtones and proto-vapourwave gems.

Review: Indica Dubs and Kai Dub link up here for their second collaboration, which is the first release of the year for the label. It features the full flavour and futuristic stepper that is 'Elevation Dub', complete with wooden hits and Digital pads, warrior chords and a nice sleek aesthetic. 'Higher Dub' then flip sit into a more heady affair with plenty of mad studio effects and endless reverb, floating toms and sizzled pads. These triumphant tunes are primed and ready for big plays on huge sound systems.

Review: Anyone who needs proof that dance music can permeate the boundaries of nations, cultures and societies wants to check Zuli, if you haven't already. The Cairo-producer, who has found favour with the likes of Wire and Pitchfork, makes music that sounds like a delivery of drum 'n' bass thundering through a weighty dose of techno, topped with the staccato trappings and trap, juke and footwork - not necessarily predominant sounds on the Egyptian club scene, which is often more house and progressive focussed.

His latest EP, All Caps, is basically six calling cards for the music maker's style. Opening on ferociously unforgiving, industrial-leaning hardcore, even the most low-slung here, 'Penicillin Duck', or the more melodic (the choppy waves of synth on 'Keen Demang') feel like someone has hit the Melt button on your mind. Tread carefully, then, but definitely be sure to tread.

Review: RECOMMENDED
Glaxian opts to go deep with this one, donning the moniker Kas to present a 12 track collection of work best described as haunting. The sense of foreboding, ominous possibilities, space, and stepping into the unknown is tangible throughout, with the producer painting complex pictures of machine-driven futures in which only the odd rays of light make it to ground level.

Not so much dancefloor, but not unfamiliar with the idea of a dancefloor, tunes are split between eerie drone work ('Self Aware Field (Part 2)'), breakneck broken rave ('Holographic Matrix of Informational Totality'), and ethereal science fiction wonders ('Last Silence' sounds like we're listening to first contact from off-world). 'Mystery Beyond Mystery' providing perhaps the best example of when all those totems are brought together - something very special indeed.

Review: Despite her off-kilter indie-pop roots, Tentenko's releases have been getting increasingly abstract and experimental over the last decade. An Antworten, her first release of any sort for three years, continues this trend, offering unique blends of wayward IDM rhythms, hypnotic techno grooves, eight-bit electronics and analogue noise. The EP boasts two out-there original tracks - the industrial loop-techno eccentricity of 'Mizu Iro' and the broken Sinclair spectrum flex of 'Ki-Iro' - which are then interpreted by other artists on the flip. Tolouse Low Trax steals the show with a version that wraps Tentenko's odd and intriguing electronics around deep space bass and head-nodding post-hip-hop beats, while Nika Son's interpretation of 'Mizu-Iro' is a loopy, hypnotic ambient treat.

Review: Emotional Response present something intriguing and oh so fresh from Cherrystones, who has most commonly been spotted recently lurking about labels like Bahnsteig 23, but in fact has a legacy reaching back to the late 90s. This new mini-album is reportedly the result of a pointed retreat to Scotland - a period of semi-isolation with minimal distractions from the serious business of analogue synths and reel-to-reel tape. There's a lot going on, from the slinky, boogie-licked groove of 'Amaziac' to the sludgy, wave tinted 'Rave Digger', but throughout the common theme is one of rough, upfront waveforms - maximal sounds with lashings of character, wielded with glee by an artist knee deep in their craft.

Review: Last year, Phil Everum surprisingly relaunched The Microphones, his post-rock vehicle of the late 90s and early-to-mid-2000s, in order to release an album that contained just one 45-minute song. That might sound a bit much, but it was actually rather good all told, with plenty of musical twists and turns and lyrics from Everum that looked back on his life experiences to date. This follow-up is even more surprising. Described as "ambient, but not ambient music", The Foghorn Tape consists entirely of a looped bass tone - created to sound like a classic cliff-top foghorn - drenched in varying amounts of hiss, noise and gritty aural fuzz.
