Anti-Patriot – Ideology

Sonic Mind – Release: 17th April 2020

Four tracks of thoughtful, hard and overdriven techno grooves in that distinctive Kalamazoo style.

From the press release: “The artist, known only as Anti Patriot lives everywhere and nowhere in particular. In fact no one knows where he/she is from. What we do know is they don’t agree with a lot of things their country does, from its leaders to the mass media and even some citizens, especially in these modern times”

Stephen Prince – ‘The Corn Mother: Night Wraths’

A Year In The Country – Release: 16th March 2020

Eerie electronica, characterised by distant synthetic messages and spindly environmental noise. The latest offering from A Year In The Country, continues with earthy drones and odd folklore in both it’s sound design and accompanying Novella.

Masarima – Freak Like U

Sounding like an undiscovered early 80’s Italo disco cut this recently released tune will sure to be doing the business for some time to come. You don’t really need to read about it, just listen and know!

Rocky Jones – The Choice of a New Generation

On the surface, Rocky Jones may appear to be a bit of a one-hit wonder, on Discogs this 1987 track is listed as his only single. But his influence on the history and evolution of House music is much greater than a quick glance at his discography may indicate.

Sea Urchin & Aki Goto’s Shirotento Orchestra – Natal Uranus

RVNG Intl – Release: 29/2/20

Batshit bonkers from the RVNG (un)stable. Pythonesque moments collide with off-piste rhythms and melodies verging on the clinically insane, in this collaboration between Sea Urchin and Aki Goto’s Shirotento Orchestra.

The Forgotten Man – Cosmic Echoes

Noctu Recordings – Release 28th February 2020

Brighton based The Forgotten Man has been quietly and slowly building things up over the last year or so on his own Noctu recordings label. This release is our favourite so far. Don’t expect anything groundbreaking in terms of new styles or fancy gimmicks, but do expect something quality and long-lasting when it comes to the musicianship and feeling.
