Review: RECOMMENDED
It's hard not to sound like Patrick Conway is paying us to say glowing things when writing about Cellular Housekeeping. Few albums have been released this year that manage to celebrate the multifarious nature of dance music right now compared with this triumph, which casts its stylistic net pretty wide without ever coming across as an artist's performative attempt to look (or sound) like they can make multiple genres.

For the most part, these tunes occupy a kind of hybrid space, somewhere between drum & bass, techno, house, and breaks. They're not committed to any of those, but nor are they ever inauthentic. Work such as 'Eat Thyself, Sustain Thyself', offer a great summation of the small print here - pinpoint precision on the drums, clear innovation in the arrangement. Beats that can make you dance, but not without asking one constant question - just what the f*!k is this?

Island Time
Cat: ESP 014. Rel: 13 Jun 18
Disco/Nu-Disco
  1. Ahumbo (5:55)
  2. Island Time (4:39)
  3. If It Ever Feels Right (9:11)
Review: The Lovefingers helmed ESP Institute had a frankly killer year in 2012, and if this opening salvo for 2013 is anything to go by we're in for many more treats from the label this year. Pharoahs have already graced 100% Silk with their brand of disco-inspired synth jams, but these three tracks are infinitely more accomplished. "Ahumbo" combines subtle Afrobeat influences with thick, lustrous bass and the kind of spacious guitar licks that would make Talking Heads jealous, while the dubby feel and atonal percussion of "Island Time" recall Ital's brilliant track "Queens". Finally, the "If It Ever Feels Right" goes in as hard as you could imagine an ESP release going, with thick analogue bass tumbling out of control at 132bpm driven relentlessly forward by a conga-led rhythm, which segues effortlessly into a blissful saxophone breakdown. Unsurprisingly, this is excellent stuff which comes highly recommended.

Reconstructions
Cat: ESP 030. Rel: 05 Feb 21
Ambient/Drone
  1. Reconstruction 1 (14:51)
  2. Reconstruction 2 (12:17)
Review: ESP Institute look to Chee Shimizu for this one. He helmed an incredible Tokyo DJ collective called Discossession alongside Dr Nishimura back in the 2000s and the now dominant ambient talent Jonny Nash was also a part of the gang. They released two EPs which got cult status and for the music on this EP Chee linked with Tokyo guitarist miku-mari a.k.a. Takahiro Matsumura for some live shows at experimental audio/visual event Sacrifice. The multi-hour sessions were recorded and then edited down to the two pieces presented here which are filed with windchimes and Andean chajchas, synths, Tibetan bells and pyramid crystals and make for wondrous listening.
