Envy Turned Curiosity EP
Cat: TTT 065. Rel: 01 May 18
  1. Money Between Friends (8:00)
  2. Envy Turned Curiousity (6:05)
  3. Deepstate Riddim (4:38)
  4. Designer Life (6:48)
Review: Exotic Dance Records founder J.Albert has been scouted out by Will Bankhead for the man's The Trilogy Tapes imprint, and we have to say that this feels like the perfect match. Both the label and the artist have a knack for the unexpected, with the former having released an infinite multitude of electronic genres and the latter twisting and turning between techno, electro, and something undefinable. Made up of glitchy breaks and surreal waves of electornic dust, "Money Between Friends" and "Envy Turned Curiosity" both exude an industrial dubbiness that is rarely achieved by others. On the B-side, "Deepstate Riddim" is some neo-jungle badness that evolves the genre magnificently, and "Designer Life" ends on a more sinister note, launching a minimal wave of electronics surrounded by warm blasts of sub-bass. Recommended, naturally...

  1. April Fools' Day (15:55)
  2. Bugged (11:24)
Review: It's been something of a defining year for Melbourne duo CS & Kreme. Better known to some as Conrad Standish and Sam Karmel, despite the wealth of problems that have faced artists in 2020, the pair finally unveiled their debut LP early in the calendar, cementing their status as two of Australia's most talented opiate-pop-dance producers. A fine starting point from which to release this double-A single.

It certainly has the confidence you'd associate with acts and outfits that have found their place in the grand scheme of musical things. 'April Fool's Day' is a poised and subtly tense slice of laidback suggestion, twangs of melody hanging on a feeling that's pure psychedelia. 'Bugged' takes things into funkier, break-ier terrain, all locked rhythms and head-nodding infectiousness. Downtempo goodness, to put that another way.

  4. Triple-Arched Gateway (3:28)

  6. 211 Circles Of Rushing Water (3:34)
  7. Combi Zooooc (2:17)
  8. Shallow Bowl (2:58)
Review: Once every three or four years, Kassem Mosse drops a new record under a new alias. We've loved the producer's mystique, which he has retained since day 1, because it is representative of a true artist and musician, evolving new ideas while remaining grounded in a particular aesthetic that is personal to him. This debut DJ Residue 12" drops on Will Bankhead's TTT, whom he has kept tight relations with over the years, and has hit us pretty hard. In fact, it is the most relevant depiction of techno, or general warehouse music, that we have heard this year, shifting and morphing endlessly, going from the regular to the utterly insane with pure ease. Sludgy beats, eerie atmospherics, and Mosse's intricate percussion patterns form a beautifully dark variety of noise music. Recommended, as per usual.

  9. Beads Upon An Abacus (5:32)
  10. The Entrepreneurs (3:16)
Review: Given that he's been delivering DIY releases as Kitchen Cynics since the late 1980s, it can be to know where to start with Alan Davidson's vast back catalogue. Happily, the Trilogy Tapes has come up with a solution: Beads Upon an Abacus, a career retrospective compiled by Jack Murphy that offers an excellent introduction to the Aberdeen-based artist's distinctive work. It's well worth checking, too, because Davidson's trademark style -a lo-fi and hissing blend of rudimentary electronics, hazy folk revivalism, layered guitar-scapes and oddly traditional instrument choices - is never less than invigorating, alluring and hugely entertaining. If you've yet to bathe in his unique musical explorations, don't sleep on this fine compilation.

Hollywood EP #1
Cat: TTT 056. Rel: 13 Feb 18
  1. Snow Ball (5:17)
  2. Smart Ball (5:53)
  3. Smooth Motion (5:05)
  4. Look Back Motion (5:11)
Review: DJ Nobu & NHK yx Koyxen new MTV moniker is something only The Trilogy Tapes could come up with, and it's another fine addition to the label's infamous web blog, which contains all sorts of outlandish sounds from every corner of the globe. "Snow Ball" and "Smart Ball", on the A-side, are two sides of the same coin; the former bleeps placidly to an eerie groove of molecular hypnotics, while the latter enters the rave with a slow yet brutalist assortment of bass bumps. "Smooth Motion" is a fuzzy, imperceptible techno experiment in the same style as Thomas Brinkmann's oddities, and "Look Back Motion" rattles an itchy, acid-driven stomper over a bare-bones groove that has TTT stamped all over it. That artwork, too...

Wild Qualia
Wild Qualia (limited 12")
Cat: TTT 089. Rel: 10 Nov 20
  1. Planet Is Transparent (3:55)
  2. Wild Qualia (5:50)
  3. Vocation (7:50)
Review: Besides a cameo role on Optimo late last year, little is known about Odd Lust beyond the fact that they make some rather fascinating (and handsomely dark) techno. Take 'Planet Is Transparent', a 150 BPM broken drum electro homage that sits closer to drum & bass than it does trad techno. It's backed by the slower, more curmudgeonly electro of the title track before 'Vocation' closes with a tight weave of acid slappage. Odd by name, mesmerising by nature.

Morning Routine
Morning Routine (hand-stamped 12" limited to 200 copies)
Cat: TTT 075. Rel: 28 Oct 19
  1. Cock-A-Doodle-Do (4:17)
  2. Sweatpants (3:30)
  3. Tabi Shoes (4:23)
  4. Exfolio (3:23)
Review: Qoso is a Paris-based producer who has previously released on In Paradisum and collaborated with Low Jack. The latter reference should give you a hint as what to expect from "Morning Routine", a four-track missive of experimental electronica and mutant techno that tends towards the fuzzy, clanking and otherworldly. There's much to enjoy, from the spaced-out Autechre-in-dub flex of "Sweatpants" and the quirky combination of twittering synth lines, post-electro beats and rumbling bass that is "Tabi Shoes", to the fizzing electronics and galloping machine beats of closing cut "Exfolio". Spacey, acid-fired opener "Cock-A-Doodle-Do", where military machine drum snares, foreboding bass and subtle acid lines catch the ear, is also pretty darn good.

Rezzett (2xLP + poster) (1 per customer)

  5. Wet Bilge (4:30)
  6. Tarang (6:20)
  7. Gremlinz (4:23)
  8. Worst Ever Contender (5:42)
Review: It was only a matter of time before the enigmatic Rezzett duo dropped an LP on Will Bankhead's TTT, and the time feels just right. At a time when electro, EBM and post-everything seems to be trending, the duo's organic style and ethereal melodies make a whole lot of sense, and give meaning to a new generation of listeners fascinated by future dystopia and the more melancholic side of dance music. The self-titled LP is a perfect encapsulation of everything they have released thus far, a blend of aqueous techno and ambient house that goes way, way beyond the dancefloor. The mood, the vibe, and the sounds are sticky, tainting the air with their singular distortion aesthetic that renders them personal to these two masked producers. The thing we love most, however, is their willingness to represent the UK hardcore continuum, offering two final cuts that push the d&b framework to its very limits. Highly recommended.

  4. Nostalgia (9:34)
  5. Reintegration (3:23)
Review: We're not sure of Waswaas's background or identity - The Trilogy Tapes has released no information about their latest signing - but this debut 12" is quietly impressive. Its five tracks tend towards the creepy and paranoid, with the mystery artist wresting maximum atmosphere and mind-mangling freakiness from what sounds like an impressive range of analogue and modular synthesizers. Some of it sounds like inspired Radiophonic Workshop soundtracks to a particularly weird lost episode of Doctor Who from the early 1970s, while other numbers are far more forthright and, frankly, chilling. It's a winning combination though, and one that we'd recommend exploring further.
