Brazil (12")

Minimal/Tech House
  1. Brazil (slow version)
  2. Brazil (album version)
  3. Brazil (Gold Panda remix)
  4. Brazil (Etienne Jaumet remix)
Review: In the fine tradition of Border Community, Luke Abbott comes correct with this selection of winsome techno designed to tug at the heartstrings through heavy deployment of gently detuning synths. "Brazil" in both its incarnations here shimmers with the hazy charm you expect form Mr Abbott, while "Grumble" has a real edge to it thanks to some wilful distortion. The krautrock tendencies of Etienne Jaunet's remix makes it our pick of the two (admittedly sublime) tweaks, although the Gold Panda version is well worth checking too.

Review: Modular synthesizer fetishist Luke Abbott apparently got the inspiration for this sophomore set during time spent as the "musician in residence" at the Wysing Arts Centre in Cambridgeshire back in 2012. Named after a piece of woodland close by, it sees Abbott using live analogue electronics to try and create a "natural life cycle" over the album's nine tracks. Interestingly, it differs from his impressive debut album in a number of ways; while Holkham Drones touched on krautrock, drone and intense ambience, Wysing Forest doffs a cap to spiritual jazz, Terry Riley and ambient explorer Pete Namlook. It's a beguiling set, all told, and one that constantly veers between crunchy bursts of intense IDM and becalmed, breathtaking ambience.

Review: We've been swimming in Luke Abbott's debut album since it landed on our desks this week. As one would expect from a member of the vaulted Border Community family, it's a record steeped in melody, gentle yet strong, perfect for at-home headphone escapism. Abbott is a master of kosmische, and on Holkham Drones he creates a lush soundscape that is psychedelic and richly textured, with similarities to be found in the work of modern contemporaries James Holden, Allez Allez and Four Tet. "Whitebox" is an intense swirling track that showcases the Norfolk producer's love of analogue equipment, while "Trans Forest Alignment" starts like a moodier version of LCD Soundsystem's "Losing My Edge" before submerging itself beneath a sea of melodic keys and atmospheric synth washes. Everything here is assembled using the most delicate of sounds, from the moody vibe of "Sirens For The Colour" through to "Brazil", which shines like a beacon of hope, while the ambient fuzz of "Dumb" offers one of the album's most moving moments. One of the finest releases of 2010 without a doubt.

Review: James Holden needs no introduction, without doubt he is now classed as one of the worlds top producers. His top selling singles "One For You", "Nothing" and the debut release on his own imprint Border Community "A Break In The Clouds", are without doubt some of the standout tracks of the past 4 years. Extrawelt may not be a name already familiar from your teutonic techno collection, but hopefully they'll be taking their place there very soon. For the debut release of new side project Extrawelt, the duo have turned in a pair of melancholy gems which fit in perfectly with the Border Community ethos. The understated epic 'Soopertrack' furthers our minimal trance manifesto set forth in Holden's 'The Sky Was Pink' remix, slowly building to a peak of a subtlety which few producers possess the restraint to achieve. Standing in a complementary symbiotic union is the made-for-soundtrack ambient two step of 'Zu Fuss', throwing down the gauntlet to courageous DJs everywhere to fit this must-be-heard unclassifiable beauty into sets from downtempo through electro to breaks. All this, plus another pair of those tools you all love, and release number eight is in the bag.

Review: James Holden's label was always seen as the imprint most likely to enjoy mainstream success, but it's only now that this prophecy looks likely to come to pass. Nathan Fake's productions were too dreamy and abstract to win mainsream support and Holden himself lacked the patience to enter the pop world - even though he certainly did not lack the creativity. Instead, the honour of most likely pop star in waiting falls to Canadian producer Jake Fairley aka Fairmont. Those with long memories and bulging record collections will recall that under his own name, Fairley made a series of stunning widescreen techno records for Berlin label Sender. Though inspired by Detroit melodies and the grainy, unrelenting bass of early 00s German techno, these releases laid the basis for a sound that has splintered into different strands, all of which reach their logical conclusions here. The muffled vocals and atmospheric hooks of "Cold World" are expressed, albeit using a more downbeat tempo, on the layered synths and downer medication slur of the title track, while the bristling, twitching techno of "Drama" is evident on "Vanguard", which builds to the sound of Alden Tyrellistyle arpeggiated synths. However, Fairley also builds on his more recent work as Fairmont, and the trancey synth hooks, throbbing bass and, on "Cannon", the androgynous vocals may finally propel Fairley from underground status into the charts.

Review: Over the past few years Jake Fairley has become recognized as a key force in the growing Canadian electronic music scene. In September 2004 Jake Fairley released his first full-length release in over two years. "Touch Not The Cat" brings together and draws from every project and release from Jake's entire career and takes his music to the next level. Many different ideas and sounds are brought together for the first time to create an album that is extremely catchy, danceable and unmistakably Jake. His trademark straight and dirty beats are pitted against the shuffle riffery of T Rex, the tense monotone of Lou Reid and the distorted pop of The Misfits.

Review: Nathan Fake returns with his long awaited third LP. Steam Days is pitched almost directly between the pastoral sounds of his debut Drowning In A Sea Of Love and the razor-edged, abrupt Hard Islands. Some tracks are pushed through sharp, angular rhythmic shapes, such as the strobing bass of "Harnser" or the abrasive "A World of Spectrum", which utilises steam powered, clockwork rhythms, while some show his knack for soft-focus melodies, such as the wistful, radiophonic "Paean", and the washed out trance of "Sad Vember".

  2. Paean (Coda)
  3. Paean (Lukid remix)
Review: Given that the precocious Nathan Fake was a pioneer in the area of melodic, indie meets electronic, it's strange to hear him calling a release Paean. Despite this, it's business as usual for the UK producer, with a cascade of melodic lines and psychedelic modulations unfolding over a rattling break beat. By contrast, the Coda remix is but a short, noisy outro and Lukid's version is a noisy, bass-heavy broken beat reshape. It's the Lone version that most articulately captures the spirit of the original version. The synth sounds redefine the term 'breezy' and, over brittle break beats, veer into melodies so sweet that they could replace the sugar in your morning cup of coffee.

  1. Iceni Strings
  2. Sense Head
  3. Bauxite Dream
Review: Largely absent from the art of original productions since that stunning Christmas track for Pampa back in 2010, Nathan Fake has been occupying himself with the odd remix here and there while working on the material that makes up Steam Days, his forthcoming third LP set for release on regular haunt Border Community. On the basis of Iceni Strings, this three track 12" prelude, Fake has spent his time wisely, with the title track one of those glorious examples of the Norfolk melodic wunderkind's innate talents for crafting warm organic music. The track's clipped percussion and glacial undertones gradually succumb to the obvious charms of that thickly resonating synth line that pulses onwards towards the skies, accruing all manner of fuzzy widescreen texture along the way. On the flip, "Sense Head" crafts together six different drum palettes while Fake goes overboard on twisting the sepia tinted melodics inside themselves, and the off kilter programming of "Bauxite Dream" attempts to trudge through the grimey recesses of low end with requisite results. The new album should be amazing on the basis of these tracks.

  3. The Illuminations (Arpsolo)
Review: After the abrasive nature of Gone Feral, James Holden delivers another 12" of singular techno abstraction that bolsters the Border Community main man's intention to surge ahead with starkly original material. "The Illuminations" is a fast-paced thriller that mixes analogue mischief into psychedelic leanings, leaning on a constantly surging rhythmic intention as a sturdy backbone for long-form synth tweaking of a resolutely hand made nature. On the flip you can lose yourself in the pure drum workout of the "Drumsolo" mix, where the frenetic patterns make for a potent techno tool, or alternatively you can cut loose the percussive anchors and drift off on the ambient wonderment of the "Arpsolo".

Review: One of The Inheritors more subdued moments, it may initially seem odd for James Holden to have chosen such an undanceable track for its own EP, but here it finds itself warped into new forms for the club environment. The "Tool" version sees Holden laying a slowly unfurling rhythm under the original's pastoral analogue synths which ebb and flow with a new intensity. The "dub" does much the same but in a more subdued manner, while the "Gibbersolo" isolates the deeply disturbing vocals to chilling effect.

Review: Leading up to James Holden's long awaited second album, Border Community offer the Holden obsessive with a remix 10" featuring new scores of "Renata" by Daphni and Steve Moore. Daphni's remix is executed in typically unpredictable fashion by the Caribou frontman Dan Snaith, as the melancholic and euphoric fervour of Holden's consuming original is calmed by a breathy vocal choral and scissor-cut salvos lifted from an early UK Garage style. Steve Moore's alternate version offers a tom drum melodic and dreamy ambient wash of hyper-coloured synths that whiz and whirl to the point of ecstasy just before climax. A essential for Holden completists.

Review: There's an indication in the name, but in case you weren't sure James Holden is in a fighting mood on this new single, which provides a sneak peak at what impending album The Inheritors might hold in store. "Gone Feral" is a visceral cut that combines an awkwardly time-signatured beat with yowling swathes of distorted synth that fill every possible inch of the frequency range, leaving no room to breathe or get a handle on the track whatsoever. The "Drumtool" of the track unsurprisingly leaves the lopsided beat and some static pressure to flail on its own, while the "Synthtool" makes for a delirious beatless excursion which comes almost as a relief after the staggering intensity of the original track. Brace yourselves for the next era of Holden, he's not pulling any punches.

Review: James Holden's career trajectory has been odd, to say the least. Having found fame as a fresh-faced teenaged progressive house producer, he's spent the last decade distancing himself from his early work (and, arguably, doing the same with his Border Community label). The Inheritors is his first album for nearly seven years, and you can tell. Whereas his debut set, 2006's The Idiots Are Winning, was rooted in tech-house and minimal - albeit with a sprinkling of IDM tracks - The Inheritors is a wonderfully out-there, atmospheric and occasionally uncomfortable set. Rooted in IDM, drone, ambience and leftfield beats, it flits between nightmarish oddness ("Sky Burial"), wide-eyed fluidity ("Inter-City 125") and intense, lo-fi electronica ("Seven Stars").

Review: It's been seven years since Holden's debut album The Idiots Are Winning was released on his own Border Community imprint, and in that time new material has been scarce to say the least. Thankfully, The Inheritors was well worth the wait; produced with a combination of Holden's extensive analogue modular system and his own self-coded software, the album takes in influences as wide as The KLF, Elgar, ceilidh music, pentatonic folk scales and ancient pagan rituals, with each track recorded in one take with no overdubs. Border Community cohort Luke Abbott's Holkham Drones album would be the closest comparison, but even that superb record doesn't come close to the sprawling marvel that is The Inheritors, with highlights like the jazz sax of "The Caterpillar's Intervention" and twisting analogue techno of "Gone Feral" coming thick and fast.

Review: Holden's 2006 debut album was an astonishing one that gets a timely reissue on double crystal-clear splatter vinyl. A high watermark for proudly synthetic and computer made music, it was the bold arrival of an artist who endures as an innovator to this day. "The Idiots Are Winning" is a masterclass in unhinged grooves, glitchy electronic sounds and mutant sounds that set a new benchmark in experimental textures, sound design and dance floor clout. "Idiot" is the standout banger, "Lump" is more trippy and heat workout, and "10101" is the twitchy and mesmeric workout you cannot escape. Music as idiosyncratic as this doesn't come along too often, and even 13 years left it still sounds fresh.

Review:  Last year, Border Community heavyweights James Holden and Luke Abbott took part in a special performance to mark the 80th birthday of minimalist legend Terry Riley. Here, the extended pieces they performed that night are finally released. Holden's 46-minute piece - performed with tabla player Camilo Tirado, and created by writing a special sequencer for his modular synthesizer - is little less than an exotic, slowly evolving masterpiece, up there with the American composer's finest synthesizer works. Abbott's "555Hz", on the other hand, is an altogether deeper and more languid affair, but no less enthralling. Built around droning, drawn-out chords and subtle melodic shifts, it bubbles away attractively like the greatest intergalactic ambience.

Review: UK-Polish duo Holden & Zimpel return with more adventures in Kraut-jazz-techno, if that's even a thing. The description certainly makes sense on 'Saturday', which opens the scoring here on a tip that is at once informed by Underground Resistance, drone-y avant-garde and something with flutes. Starting as it means to go on, to say the least. From there we run through days of the week in order to 'Wednesday', making this one of the longest weekends we can think of in some time. 'Sunday''s distorted strings sounding almost like a strange species communicating via fraught noises. 'Tuesday' is more rhythmically balanced, almost risking coming close to more standard electronica as its melodies reach ever higher, before the final number closes out with an air of euphoria and subtle drive.
