Pulse (4:40)
Procedure (3:42)
Review: High pressure manoeuvres from Ilian Tapes on this mysterious and highly limited one-off run. 'Pulse' is a Samurai style slab of hybrid dub techno that's layered in grains and textures whole 'Procedure' flips the UK garage two-step vibe into a distorted, crunchy and physical groove that's not dissimilar to Tim Wright's early work on Mute. Once again, a very special release from Ilian... Blink and you'll miss it.

Fighting Fools (6:47)
My Life (5:55)
Review: Trouble Maker Adam Curtain and kindred spirit soldier Ste Roberts launch their Adam & Steve project with this delightful trip down bleep lane. Rolling at a cool mid-tempo, loaded with space, bulging with subs and swaggering with rolling breaks, both 'Fighting Fools' and 'My Life' hit with ageless dancefloor charm. The former playfully brings UKG elements into the mix while 'My Life' hits with a certain early 90s b-boy swagger that could easily be compared to the Blapps Posse. Get to know!

Worlds Apart (4:45)
Review: Following his soundtrack to the Roki game and appearances on the likes of Monstercat, Aether returns to his spiritual home Fent Plates for the first time since 2017. The wait has of course been worth it as 'Fragments' takes us back to the Scottish deepsmith's finest elements; stirring, poignant chords, foggy, disarming textures long lingering-but-tender notes. From the opening airy pads and trembling keys of 'Luna Awaits' to the final slo-mo plod and echo of the finale 'Worlds Apart', it's Aether doing what he does best; conjuring up emotions you didn't even know you were feeling while making you feel like you're in an impenetrable bubble. Beautiful.

Review: Par Avion collective member Agrippa returns with his first full release since last year's "Mygraine Urgraine". Once again getting playful with his titles, once again covering some vast and unforgiving terrains, each of the four cuts takes you to a different corner; "Squid Girls" is an aquatic bashy piece with its techno tendrils lashing wildly, "Dead Wait" is pure crushed stomps with a crunchy warehouse vibe while "Spice Raiders" takes us deep into techno territory; loopy, paranoid and laced with unnerving sound designs before "Scabs" brings us to a fractured close as the 'hot pick' of the EP (not sorry). Time to get Agrippa yourselves...

Review: Cairo based producer Hassan Abou Alam joins the revered ranks of the Banoffee Pies label here as it clocks up the 20th release. It is a punchy techno offering that opens with the roaming, brain-numbing leads of 'Kesibt' (feat SHBL-LBSH). The bass comes heavy, the percussion is raw, the refracted vocal a great hook. 'Fasla' (feat SHBL-LBSH) is hyperdrive double-time techno with wobbly bottom ends, 'Mawkif' further plays with the rules with its hopping hits and driving bass and this more original and inventive of offerings closes with 'Hanshoof', a physical bit of percussive techno funk.

Review: Japanese artist Hirotaka Umetani serves up four club ready joints here all though a rather distinctive UK bass lens. The Albino Sound EP on Turnend Tapes finds him "translating visual into sound through his own experience. The sound designs is immense, from crystalline leads to hallucinatory synths, tiny bits of sonic grit to perfect designed drums. The rhythms are inventive and minimal to make for hi fidelity and frusta techno that wouldn't sound out of place on Livity Sound. 'Jarring' might be the standout with its twisted metals and tribal percussion over a hefty groove.

Review: German stalwart Amor Satyr returns with his signature blend of techno, ambient, and industrial, throwing out yet another four hardcore units for his frequent label Seilscheibenpfeiler Schallplatten. Dark weighty breakbeat asserts its brunt on 'Transfer', slowly morphing into booty bass on 'Quer Dancar' and watery Baile-echoes on 'Bebe'.

Review: At long last! An Avrin returns to the Scuffed scene of the crime where he first really dented our radars back in 2019 with 'Clodhopper'. Three years later he's back with 'Parisian Pitstop'. Not to be confused with a Glaswegian shower, this one whips up rainbow of broken beat aromas all destined for dancefloors that don't give a fig for pigeonholes and genre formulas. Highlights include the futuristic breakbeat tear-up 'Plata', the strange cascading time stretches and booty-shaking UKG bassline on the title track 'Parisian Pitstop' and the clattering snares and dubby ricochets of 'Stumbler'.

Explorers (12:23)
Noir-Jam (13:22)
Review: MIDI is one of the many labels out of Romania to operate in the bottomless world of minimal techno. The first five releases have done well to establish it and this sixth is another doozy. It comes from the main man Arapu and features just two tunes, one on each side of this 12". The first is 'Explorers,' a waif, floaty light groove that evolves slowly and subtly over the course of its 12 and a half minute length. A minute longer than that on the flip is 'Noir-Jam,' a more dark and winky tune with slippery synthetic sounds, melancholic chords and rubbery drums and bass.

Chamber Of Mazarbul (5:35)
Nulspace (5:51)
Pipe Dreams (5:05)
Review: Four big, booming , bass heavy tracks from Swiss production and DJ duo Atrice that stand astride several genre definitions from dubstep to techno and electro. The pair pride themselves on their sound design and it certainly lends a subtle but perceptible air to the hair raising frequencies flying around on the likes of 'Backrooms' and 'Pipe Dreams', the two most obvious contenders for the dubstep tag. 'Chamber Of Mazarbul' and the more electronica-slanted 'Nulspace' are less conventional - at least by general standards if not the wonderfully wayward 'rules' of the eternally renegade Ilian Tape label - but equally thunderous and well executed.

Review: For Holding Hands chief Desert Sound Colony, dark, eyes down, bass heavy grooves are his first love when it comes to electronic music. He created a label with a slightly deeper angle to accommodate this sort of thing named Holding Hands Submerged. Previous EPs have come from Yosh and Mariin, and this one comes from Washington D.C. based James Bangura - who presented an awesome EP on Mister Saturday Night earlier this year. For The People features another collection of off-kilter cuts by the rising producer: from the introspective dub house of the title track, to the contorted techno/bass hybrid of 'Target Velocity' or the hypnotising post dubstep antics of 'What Happened To Us All' - Bangura is an artist we're definitely keeping our eyes on this year.

Review: James Bangura steps into the ring with his new Shadow Boxing EP which is named in honour of his grandfather, Carroll Daniel Smith, who boxed for the US Army in WWII. It's a punchy take on tech house from the off, with 'Hazy Recall (Airdrop mix)''s off-grid beats swinging in from all directions with same the potency as a Mike Tyson uppercut. 'Drown It Out' has a garage swing to it as it slips and sides as fluidly as Mayweather's defence and 'Shadow Boxing' floats like a butterfly and stings like a bee. Last of all is 'Analyze, Socialize' which will have you on the ropes and sweating in no time.

Review: Currently spotted conjuring up some marvellous jungle craft on the likes of Future Retro and his own Raw Basics, Basic Rhythm returns to his slower tempos for this beguiling outing on Hypercolour. All slo-mo, warpy and moody, each cut carries it own highly unique flavour... The dense percussive weaves of 'Pepper', the almost Theo Parrishian flavoured woozy, stumbling tripletty kicks, eerie pads and crazy trumpets on '3am On The Corner' and the zoned out kuduro of the finale 'Moonlight Flit'. No one does it quite Basic Rhythm.

Issued by the Hypercolour affiliated Sneaker Social Club, the Present Moment Only Moment EP finds Cumbers effortlessly trying his hands at various angles of clubbing heritage, be it the charmingly off-key rave stylings of "Free Your Mind" or the frenetic and urgent 2-step romanticism of "Oh 2 B In Love". Best of all however is the digidub meets r'n'b flex of "Where I Keep My Heat". Poster fans will love the included A2 Sneaker Social Club folded print with artwork courtesy of Mighty Wright.

Many Lives (4:59)
Chupasapos (6:01)
Review: There's a reason that 13Monkeys regulars Baymont Bross and Sekret Chadow have called this collaborative project 'The Unami Chefs'. According to their label, the EP is an attempt to blend classic breakbeats with a wide range of contemporary, cutting-edge dancefloor sounds. That aural 'recipe' comes through loud and clear on opener 'Mystic', a brilliant blend of electro, breaks, nods to vintage Orbital records and mind-mangling synths sounds. It's also evident on the similarly framed - but arguably cheerier and much more positive-sounding - 'Ekinozio', and the soaring, life-affirming, fiddle-sporting 'Many Lives', which wouldn't sound out of place on the Hartnoll brothers' most recent album. Arguably best of all though is closing cut 'Chupasaops', a thrilling chunk of acid-breaks insanity that's as addictive as it is fun.

Burial - "Space Cadet" (9:21)
Review: This surprise new EP finds celebrated music writer and producer Blackdown on the same EP as Burial for the first time since the latter remixed the former 15 years ago. There is a heavy Detroit influence in the far-sighted synths of 'This Journey' (VIP), with angsty vocal samples stitched into the bristling, swinging rhythm. Burial's 'Dark Gethsemane' bares all the producer's usual hallmarks - pitched up vocals, deft samples and a catchy 2-step shuffle. Blackdown then offers up a remix filled with chattery claps and UK funky rhythms to open the B-side, while Burial's 'Space Cadet' is another 2-step classic with its heady way up in the heavens.

Review: Long dormant has laid the tried but true practice of dubstep and garage artists sampling classic horror movie dialogue, pre-drop. We're thoroughly happy to hear that new Peaky Beats sublabel Brainjuice have gone and resurrected this zombie for us. This four-tracker from the label hears label heads Peaky and Vel carefully and creatively work in as-yet unknown samples to the stew; some kind of Frankensteinish exclamation on the dubstep A1 laments the feeding of a monster "human brains", while the breakstep A2 'Bacon Dance' hears more timestretched, dystopian vocals amid wobbles. 'Don't' leans more into the kind of melodic dubstep that likes to sample R&B acapellas, and is the most refreshing of the lot.

Avec (4:54)
Review: Porter v Brook was a classic welterweight boxing match up in 2014, and Porter Brook the producer brings a sound that is just as powerful and action packed as was that world title fight. This Groundwork release is the second on the label and is techno workout of the highest order. 'True Belief' is an eerie broken beat with misty sound design and grainy synths, then 'Deliverance' again locks you in a mystic world of churning synths, lo-fi textures and cavernous grooves. Closer 'Avec' is the sound of a warehouse in decay, a post-apocalyptic landscape once all human life has left and the machines are starting to take over.

Review: Larry McCarthy aka Bruce is back. Having appeared on a who's who of Bristol labels such as Dnuos Ytivil and Idle Hands, it seems it's time for Untold's mighty Hemlock for the great Before You Sleep EP. It's another fine example of how artists on this scene flirt with industrial/experimental aesthetics to interesting effect. The title track is a sublime and mysterious ambient journey that will hypnotise you into a trance state blissfully. It's more like the artist we know on the quirky and jagged groove of "In Line" awash in static, rusty analogue drum computer sounds and dubby aesthetics: prepare to be immersed by this deep underwater journey. Finally on the flip, we've got another beatless excursion with the rolling and hypnotic "Sweat" where slow arpeggios and dreamy drones face off with various analogue bleeps and squeals and it's calming as much as it is violent. Great release here.

Review: Formerly one half of the Beesmunt Soundsystem, Luigi BSS comes correct with his first solo EP for Dekmantel. As the title suggests, 'Suikerplein' takes reference and influence from Luigi's hometown Amsterdam, referencing various locations, places and people, all loosely themed with a positive socially minded agenda. Five tracks deep, it builds on his previous releases on the likes of Hivern Disc and Honey Soundsystem with heavy subs and leaden, slo-mo beats all weighted in emotion and atmospheres. Highlights include the industrial weight Kraftwerkian homage 'Domela', the well-oiled machine soul of 'Box' and the soothing Plaid-like acid shower finale 'Scanner'. Fijne dag.

Review: Repress alert! Wednesday: Hyperdub announce a new three track release from enigmatic producer Burial - his first solo work in four years. Thursday: Said records arrive on Juno doorstep. How's that for service (and secrecy)! The news came just a matter of days after the producer's collaboration with Radiohead front man Thom Yorke and Four Tet arrived on record shelves across the UK and promptly sold out amidst a frenzy of hype. There are three new tracks on offer here, namely "Street Halo", "NYC" and "Stolen Dog". First up "Street Halo" showcases the classic Burial sound; subterranean bass gurgles, trademark clicking beats and barely-there vocal snatches. A sweet childlike vocal pervades the sonic mist on "NYC" while "Stolen Dog" closes out with ethereal vocal harmonies buried deep beneath vinyl crackle. Stunning.

Review: Burial's first multiple-track release since "Rival Dealer" three years ago: "Young Death" takes the lead with weave of deep, scratchy and evocative human textures while soulful vocal shards yearn and flutter over soft faraway beats. "Nightmarket" takes an even more introspective meander through the shadowy unknown with fractured arpeggios, distant whispers and thick graininess that envelops almost overwhelmingly. As forward, unusual and unique as ever, Burial remains in a league of his own. Limited.

Review: Naturally, there's been plenty of hype surrounding this new Hyperdub 10", which features Burial indulging his often-discussed ambient influences. It's a typically creepy and ghostly affair, with the lack of beats - if not rhythmic elements - only serving to amplify the shadowy producer's impeccable sound design and brilliant use of manipulated field recordings. A-side "Subtemple" is particularly paranoid in tone, featuring as it does chilling melody loops, curious vocal samples, looped vinyl crackle and all manner of layered background noise. Flipside "Beachfires" is, if anything, even more dystopian, with Burial basing the action around the kind of pulsing chords that gust back and forth like an autumnal breeze.

Review: Burial's first full-length EP since 2012's 'Rival Dealer' hears the South London enigma plunge the depths of his newest dark ambient sound, wrenching the emo essences of rave from their breakbeats to produce a purely ambient affair. Spanning every emotion from depression to triumph, 'Antidawn' opens with a cough, in a seeming nod to the COVID lockdowns of recent years. Meanwhile, disparate sections buzz and weave in and out of one another on 'Shadow Paradise' and 'Strange Neighbourhood', never quite landing on their feet before being whisked away again. One of Burial's most defining world-building works.

Nothing says "Britain is shit but we do make great music" quite like those rare instances when you get a new Burial release to ponder over. The man, the myth, the mystery, the zeitgeist, anyone who thought the ghosts of garage had been left behind in late-noughties and early-teens best get ready to recognise that, while, Antidawn is very much anything other than that lazy genre term, it still packs the spectre of that atmosphere.

A fact that has to make you start questioning labels in general. There's always been something grittily realist about Burial's work, while at the same time it exists in fantasy worlds parallel to our own. Like wandering through the city at twilight and realising a whole other plane exists, you just never looked for it before, this latest addition to the oeuvre takes all those notions and ups the ambient, resulting in a journey that's textured and direct without ever breaking from a strange, alien serenity that still feels weirdly human.

Hospital Chapel (7:54)
Streetlands (13:18)
Exokind (12:16)
Review: Is there any artist in electronic music that releases as little music yet remains as highly revered as Burial? We can't think of any. As it happens, this new Streetlands EP is actually the hallowed UK producer's second outing of 2022 after the ambient offering Antidawn back in January. As always it finds him back on Kode9's Hyperdub label. 'Hospital Chapel' is eerie atmosphere and lo-fi samples, 'Streelands' is another sparse ambient cut that is full of melancholy and 'Exokind' is the soundtrack of a faraway planet with distant solar winds and only the smallest of microbial activities for you to tune into before a signature angelic vocal brings the beauty.

Kindred EP

Ashtray Wasp
Review: ** REPRESS ALERT ** Given that his sound has now been referenced, copied and bastardised by countless imitators, is testament to Burial's enduring appeal that the announcement of a new EP on a Sunday in Febuary was enough to shake the online music press out of their collective stupors. As an EP it more than stands up to his previous work, and it may even be better than last year's Street Halo EP - where the brilliance of the title track left the EP quite top-heavy, there's no such complaints on Kindred. If UK garage was the touchpoint for his earlier releases, this EP sees Burial further developing a sound that has few obvious points of comparison, whether it's the savage, gnarled bassline of the title track, or the shambling house of "Loner", characterized by its hollowed out arpeggio and ambient crackle. But it's "Ashtray Wasp" that provides the most breathtaking moment, seeing the producer using the distinct musical language he's created and bringing confident melodic elements into play. Of course such descriptions seem trivial when trying to describe this EP - even for Burial it's far beyond what his peers and imitators could ever imagine making.

Truant aka One/Two

Rough Sleeper
Review: *Burial Repress* The double header of Truant/Rough Sleeper is the second EP from Burial in 2012, and arrives with as little fanfare as the superb Kindred EP did early this year. Unlike that more dancefloor focused record however, this EP harks back to the producer's earlier sound. Of course, being two longform compositions clocking in at 12 and 14 minutes respectively, they're hardly conventional works; each utilises the same liberal use of spectral atmospheres, emotive vocal samples, hollow 2-step beats and nods to jungle as we've come to expect from the producer, but with complex structures that come across more like two sides of an old mixtape recorded from a pair of decrepit turntables. Of course being a mixtape from Burial, this is special stuff indeed - consider it an early Christmas present to yourself.

UK To GH (12")

Try To Test (3:45)
Last Chance (4:13)
Nyura (3:17)
Telephone No Wire (4:37)
Review: British producer Burland and Ghanaian vocalist Zongo Abongo join forces here for UK to GH, a new collaboration that collides the respective backgrounds of each artist. Reggae, highlife, dancehall, UK bass and rave all meet in a world of fresh rhythm and melodic invention. 'Telephone No Wire' opens with a feel-good highlife sound on a 2-step beat with vocalist Adotey Johnson in fine form. 'Nyura' heads to the club with weighty bottom ends and enchanting melodies then things get darker on the flip with 'Try To Test' exploring another take on 2-step with hints of UKG and grime overlaid with catchy vocal hooks. 'Last Chance' pairs dancehall vocals with downtempo breaks for a superb conclusion.

Cut 6
Review: High in saturated vibes: Butterfred cuts through smoothly with these six freeform beat vignettes. Following previous explorations on his own self-titled label, here we find him cooking up his moody neo noir grooves on cult Belgian label Meakusma but it's business as usual. Distilled aesthetics that owe as much to jungle as they do hip-hop or sci-fi, each nameless cut hits with glacial, slo-mo prowess in a way that's both subtle and pretty epic. Fans of Shadow will be all over this.

Banada (3:53)
Ricky Rose (with Biome) (3:49)
Review: We're delighted to be bringing you this one - after a couple of years away, Madam X's KAIZEN label is finally back in business with an updated look and a new wave of sounds from the future. It is the fast-rising Manchester talent of Cartridge that takes the reins here with two superb tunes. 'Banada' is first up with its Eastern-flavoured melodies snaking their way through a vast and cavernous space powered by drilling bass. It's delicious dark room music for the body and head. On the flipside is a collab with Biome that is more sleazy and dirty. The metallic bassline and punchy 808s make it ripe for bass face and gun-finger salutes.
