Various Artists – Exit Planet Earth

“When material interacts with light, properties of that material are stamped on the light. This stamp is like a specific fingerprint for each element and molecule. By examining the intensity of light in each color, scientist can work backward to infer the properties of the material that touched the light along the way.” – HubbleSite.Org

Originally released on vinyl last year 20/20 Vision’s Exit Planet Earth series is now be released on digital. Part one is out now, part two is due in August with other the parts to follow. Each EP is named after a different element that is commonly found on earth and is accompanied by a corresponding spectroscopy image. An essential series of modern classics.

Dub Dub-techno Minimal

Altone – Modern Natura

Out of Japan, Altone, delivers his first release on the long-running dub-techno netlabel Insectorama. Sometimes, with free netlabels / pay as you feel Bandcamp releases, the absence of financial barriers to release means that quality control can suffer, but not in this case. Deep, spatial, aesthetics that sit well with the best of the genre.

The Hacker Vs Commuter – Roentgen

Cultivated Electronics – Release: June 14th 2021

“The roentgen or röntgen (/ˈrɜːntɡən/; symbol R) is a legacy unit of measurement for the exposure of X-rays and gamma rays, and is defined as the electric charge freed by such radiation in a specified volume of air divided by the mass of that air (statcoulomb per kilogram). It is named after the German physicist Wilhelm Röntgen, who discovered X-rays.” – Wikipedia

Taking their inspiration from the HBO TV series, Chernobyl. The Hacker and Commuter create an imaginary soundtrack accompaniment for this outstanding EP on the super-strong Cultivated Electronics label.

Included are remixes by MMT-8, otherwise known as Ed Upton (DMX Krew) and label head Phil Bolland (Sync 24).

Jeff Mills – Where Light Ends

The recent republishing of this short video to Vimeo provides enough of an excuse for us to post here. Originally made in 2013 for Mill’s Where Light Ends album this short film provides visual and musical accompaniment to Dr. Mamoru Mohri‘s account of his first spaceflight, which took place in 1992 on the space shuttle Endeavour.

Review Techno

COLOGNe – Deep Talk EP

Previously only available in Japan on a CD released in 1999. These six tracks are an evocative collection of hidden gems from the heyday of electronic music. Recording artist Takuya Sugimoto European breakthrough came when the former UK record store responsible for promoting the deeper techno sound, Fatcat Records, decided to make their first release an EP recorded by him under the alias of EVA. This re-released EP, which was never available in the UK, is very much of that sound and era. Think UK deep techno of the likes of B12 and Stasis but with a more quirky temperament. A sound that will always be close to our hearts.
