New Planets To Conquer EP (140 gram vinyl 12") (1 per customer)
Cat: DWT 002. Rel: 26 Mar 18
Techno
  1. Scisor
  2. Fading Fast
  3. Wraith
  4. Sunrise In System
Review: Having been rediscovered by labels like For Those That Knoe, cult deep techno favourite Derek Carr is on a roll and steps up to Distant Worlds in impeccable form. There's more than a little vintage techno mysticism to the tracks on New Planets To Conquer, which starts off in illustrious fashion with the swooning melancholy of "Scisor" before pinging into the dynamic electro delights of "Fading Fast." "Wraith" is a fast paced, bubbling but ultimately mellow techno jam, and "Sunrise System" cools the EP off with a chill-out cut carved from the same block of high-def synthesis.

Electro
  1. Guidance Release (8:08)
  2. Galactic Neigborhood (5:32)
  3. Near Earth Objects (6:54)
  4. Modularity (7:31)
Review: Since first landing on earth three years ago, Distant Worlds has offered up a slew of suitably intergalactic techno and electro EPs from the likes of John Shima, Derek Carr, Perseus Traxx and Mihail P. Here they add a new name to the roster via a rock solid EP from sometime Lunar Disko regular Cignol. The producer's ability to wrest maximum emotion from his machines is exemplified by opener "Guidance Release", where melancholic pads and twisted, razor-sharp acid lines envelop a deep electro groove. It's there too in the warmer and more positive-sounding melodiousness of "Galactic Neighbourhood" and "Modularity", which sounds like the Junior Boys and Morgan Giest jamming with Gerard Hanson.

Imitator EP (140 gram vinyl 12")
Cat: DWT 005. Rel: 28 Jan 19
Techno
  1. The Imitator (5:27)
  2. The 45% (6:54)
  3. DSK-8 (6:14)
  4. Theme From Distant Worlds (6:04)
Review: REPRESS ALERT: Stephen Lopkin made an impression when he landed on M>O>S, and now he follows up that star turn with this arch tribute to the archetypal techno sound on Distant Worlds. The "Imitator EP" may be brazen about its influences and intentions, but that's no disservice to the quality of the techno on offer here, which shows Lopkin to be incredibly well-read on the studio techniques of the past masters. From the Detroit stable to the UK torch-bearers, the reference points come thick and fast, but more telling is that fact these tracks fit right in with a lot of techno being produced at the moment. If you're feeling that classic 90s sound right now, then there's an embarrassment of riches to be enjoyed on this release.

Multiverse EP (140 gram vinyl 12")
Cat: DWT 003. Rel: 04 May 18
Techno
  1. Aphelion (5:05)
  2. Earthbound (5:53)
  3. Cubic Refraction (6:40)
  4. Ocean Estate (6:15)
Review: Mihail P first came to light on respected label Seventh Sign before popping up just recently on Verdant Recordings alongside ESB, and now he's back once again with the Multiverse EP on Distant Worlds. His influences are clear, from the elegant melancholy and attention to detail of early UK techno to the snappy electro rhythms of Drexciya, and he exercises those influences brilliantly on each of these four tracks. There are abundant tender synth lines criss-crossing intricately programmed drum machines in a true celebration of machine soul, all shot through with a heavy-lidded ambience that makes for some of the most captivating techno out there at the moment.

Omniverse EP (140 gram vinyl 12")
Cat: DWT 007. Rel: 12 Aug 19
Techno
  1. Paradigm (5:50)
  2. Kessel Run (5:53)
  3. Experiment 6 (4:17)
  4. Sons Of October (4:55)
Review: Distant Worlds is a label going from strength to strength as it carries the work of underground deep techno producers celebrating that hopelessly romantic strain of UK machine music that emanated out of labels like B12 and Pure Plastic. Mihail P makes a return to the label after last year's "Multiverse EP", channeling all the right moves for a blissful trip into imagined sci-fi vistas fuelled by the box jam funk of electro and the synapse-tickling soundscapes of Tangerine Dream et al. From the dreamy delights of "Kessel Run" to the downtempo groove of "Sons Of October", this is beautifully executed music that champions electronic music with real heart and soul.

Simulacra (140 gram vinyl 12")
Cat: DWT 004. Rel: 03 Sep 18
Techno
  1. A New Mystery
  2. Simulacra
  3. Circumstantial
  4. The Map Is Not The Territory
Review: Following sterling entries from Derek Carr, John Shima and Mihail P, Distant Worlds reaches out to Perseus Traxx for a demonstration of the emotional heft and utopian optimism that classic techno promises in its most compelling moments. This is relatable, familiar territory, but executed with finesse beyond the reach of the average producer. "A New Mystery" is bathed in swirling synth tones as elegant as they are moving, while "Simulacra" places a bold square wave riff front and centre for an impactful deep techno meditation. "Circumstantial" reframes the same rich melodic approach in a frantic chassis of snapping beats darting around the grid with playful glee, and then "The Map Is Not The Territory" applies the same logic to a mystical but rhythmically charged trip into the netherworld of machine soul.

Artificial Paradise (140 gram vinyl 12")
Cat: DWT 006. Rel: 15 Apr 19
Techno
  1. After The Rain (6:04)
  2. Artificial Paradise (5:37)
  3. No Such Thing (6:48)
  4. Scattered Minds (5:27)
Review: Erell Ranson has got some serious credentials behind him. The French producer has been releasing music for over ten years, landing on a range of underground labels that more recently include Barba Records, Subwax Excursions and Nightflight. On this release for UK label Distant Worlds, he matches the vibe of label mates John Shima, Derek Carr et al with a gorgeous set of emotive, yearning techno reflections that call to mind the early UK scene pioneered by B12, Baby Ford and others. This is thoughtful, heartfelt stuff that works both as distinctive dancefloor material as well as intimate home listening fare.

Techno
  1. Renegade (7:33)
  2. Machnine Works (7:15)
  3. Veloc (7:34)
  4. Troglodytic (6:44)
Review: John Shima has been quietly plying his trade in techno soul since 2010, shoring up on labels such as Boe Recordings, Contrast-Wax and FireScope. Now he inaugurates Distant Worlds with another fine clutch of introspective beats delivered with a classic early 90s feel. It's hard to ignore the influence of B12 on "Renegade", while "Machine Works" takes on a moodier tone without losing that inherent warmth that makes his music such a pleasure to listen to. "Veloc" reaches for a heavy-lidded euphoria, and then "Troglodytic" makes for the consummate B2 track by heading out into ambient pastures, showing off Shima's synth skills in fine style.

Through Worlds & Centuries (140 gram vinyl 12")
Cat: DWT 008. Rel: 28 Oct 19
Techno
  1. Tagwell Woods - "The Bench On The Hill" (8:20)
  2. Castel - "Silverline" (4:40)
  3. Mihail P - "At The Worlds End" (5:09)
  4. HOLOVR - "An Expanded State Of Consciousness" (5:35)
Review: Following marvelous turns from the likes of Perseus Traxx and Stephen Lopkin, Distant Worlds returns with this heavy slice of emotional synthwave from a strong cast of characters. Tagwell Woods heads up the pack with some lingering, poignant leads and tasteful 303 wriggles, before Castel drops some seriously wiggy trance-out sounds into the mix (all still very much on the sensitive tip, of course). Mihail P returns to Distant Worlds to open up the B-side with a slow, break fuelled funk and soul-stirring melancholy, before the always-excellent HOLOVR completes the set with a distinctive and delicate romp through finely sculpted electronica.
