Review: One of the earliest wave ambassadors to enjoy large label accreditation, Sami Baha delivers his first full Mu EP and doesn't disappoint: "Mavericks One" is laden with so much sub bass it's clinically obese while its topline remains slim-line and floaty. Deeper into the EP we're seduced by oriental charm throughout; "Still" and "Dough" massage the soul while "Tozko Paran" twists the senses with trippy Q&As that shouldn't work but really do. "Cataphract" plays the consummate slow-trap club bumper while "Chunk" pays homage to all the fatties out there with its restrained energy and delicate arpeggio-led dynamic. A stunning debut EP for Mu.

Review: Has there been a Planet Mu or Ital Tek release that hasn't packed a punch? Often divisive as a result, whether it's usually the right punch or not is a personal matter, but suffice to say yaysayers will be won over by the latest from both stable and producer. It's heavy, intelligent music that's steadfast in its rejection of anything like the norms - sitting somewhere between IDM, EBM, ambient and dubstep. As you'd expect, then, there are moments of real intensity. In fact, more than a few. The dystopian hoovers and thunderous kick drum of slow death rave anthem 'Bladed Terrain', or the equally well-titled bassbin killer 'Deadhead'. But although plentiful (and bountiful), those moments are contrasted by elegance and wide-eyed cinematic grandeur - 'Chamber Music', 'Open Heart' and 'Diamond Child'. Perhaps one of the best bass records you'll find in summer 2020.

  12. Vesper (1:27)
  13. Vacuum I (4:52)
Review: Planet Mu usher in the return of Ital Tek and a new sonic approach for the long-term label associate, as Hollowed finds Alan Myson switching up his approach. The chance to immerse himself in a new studio set up was the impetus for Myson to engage in laying down countless hours' worth of loops, drones and textures. It is apparently a method he used as a teenager, but armed with years of recording experience he was now able to make the record he had then envisaged. Fans of the crisp style of dubstep Ital Tek made his name on might be a bit taken aback by this new direction, but there is plenty of fine music to explore here for those that like their sounds abstract and impressionistic.

Review: Alan Myson makes a very welcome return with this new body of work under his Ital Tek moniker. As a staple of Planet Mu since his debut in 2008, his style has grown on its own terms while retaining a core identity. Myson's instinct for looming, cinematic melodies is maintained to great effect, coming through in abundance on driving-yet-beatless opener "Chamber Music". It's not all poised and refined though - "Deadhead" slaps with a darkside heft that nods to the heavier side of Myson's musical roots. Likewise "Bladed Terrain", which has a strong whiff of synthwave coursing through its veins thanks to those buzzing leads. With towering production values and strong melodic themes throughout, this is Ital Tek through and through, but equally a strong step on for a staggeringly skilled and ever-evolving artist.

Review: On his previous Konx-Om-Pax albums for Planet Mu, Tom Scholefield offered up a kaleidoscopic mixture of sweaty rave influences, colourful ambient melodies and abrasive, abstract sounds. On "Ways Of Seeing", his first album for three years, he's decided to flip the script, opting for a more optimistic, melodious and warmer sound that draws on a far wider range of influences. It's a switch that has paid dividends, with each successive track bringing a new sun-bright or morning-fresh blend of glistening electronics, tuneful lead lines, shuffling rhythms, leftfield pop hooks, deep space chords and humid aural textures. Yet for all the colouful electronic positivity, Scholefield still refuses to deliver unnecessarily polished tracks, instead opting for a thrillingly fuzzy finish fully in keeping with his experimental roots.

Review: For her second album, Brighton-based producer Lara Rix-Martin has made "a romantic eulogy to autumn and winter". As such this is a meditative yet eerie journey into ambient sounds and synthscapes that draw you in and welcome you to a beautifully lonely and isolated place. Classical synth arcs and found sounds of birds, rain and wind are seamlessly fused together into something that is altogether ethereal unhurried. "Murmur" is a particularly delightful track accompanied by bird call, "Winter Sun" exudes a real warmth and "Windross" is a darker, more unsettling foray deeper into the woods.

Review: XTEP marks the first u-Ziq material from Mike Paradinas in some six years and precedes the release of a full album later from the Planet Mu boss due out this year. Having been coaxed away from his fine curation of Planet Mu over recent years with the Heterotic project done in cahoots with wife Lara Rix-Martin, Paradinas returns to his universally recognised u-Ziq project with this five track EP which seem to present a diverse and accessible snapshot of Paradinas' production palette, veering through smudged out analogue funk, gauzy piano house, pulsing electronic disco and more rhythmically diverse material. This would seem to justify Planet Mu's claim that Paradinas has abandoned "the furrow-browed quest for cutting-edge exploration, exchanging it for an altogether more carefree fun approach".

Review: There's plenty to get excited about on Silk Road Assassins' long-awaited debut full-length, which arrives some three years after their acclaimed debut EP, "Reflection Spaces". For starters, the trio has delivered something that neatly sidesteps convention, melding bustling, loose-limbed grime and trap rhythms with all manner of layered electronic elements. Some of these are dark and moody and others fluorescent, kaleidoscopic and tropical in tone. "State of Ruin" twists, turns and twists again on umpteen occasions, delivering a musical snapshot of our chaotic times that veers from paranoid intensity to rush-inducing bliss in what seems like the blink of an eye. OK, so we may have got a little carried away, but it's certainly a superb set that's more than worthy of your hard-earned cash.

Review: Given it's a reunification of latter-day UK electronic visionary Rian Treanor and decade-spanning next level imprint Planet Mu, many ears will already know what to expect from this one - a collection of tracks that are jarring, alien and wildly unorthodox, while still somehow immediately engaging rhythmically. Suffice to say, your presumptions are correct in this case.

In many ways the four tracks here are among Treanor's most accessible, although that's perhaps not saying too much. The broken, dub-techno-on-speed opener, 'Obstacle 2', manages to be frantic and deep at the same time. The glittering synth lines of 'Obstacle 3' help create a sense of rave-y invitation, despite the track itself being a staccato curveball. While the remaining two efforts are equally impressive examples of how to push sonic limits without asking too much in terms of audience endurance.

Review: Arguably the first most important electronic music album of 2021 sees long-since-risen UK IDM-glitch-bass-something else-movie score master Rian Treanor going to town on all manner of noise patterns that simultaneously bore hypnotic holes into your mind while keeping those little grey cells excited by way of the sense that anything can happen. Especially the stuff you don't expect.

Mutant two-step on 'Mirror Instant', minimalistic d'n'b tech on a half beat courtesy of 'Metrogazer', sparse dubstep all over 'Closed Curve'. Representing the strength of the 140-plus dance renaissance across a multitude of tempos and influences, the fact you can still recognise the producer's signature on everything in spite of stylistic differences is proof he's long since carved out a space of his own.

Review: When celebrating significant landmarks, many labels get nostalgic. When it came to marking their 25th birthday, Planet Mu was never going to do that. Throughout its history, the label has looked forward, not back, and that's exactly what they've done with Planet Mu 25. The album's 15 tracks come from current members of the roster and are every bit as far-sighted and futuristic as you'd expect. It's a breathlessly brilliant romp, all told, taking in tracks that brilliantly mangle and mix elements of grime, footwork, acid, electronica, dubstep, techno, jazz and UK bass into sparkling, weighty and otherworldly new shapes. It's so good, in fact, that it could well be a late contender for the best compilation of 2020.
