Metal Server EP - Servent - Downstream

Damon Vallero is a talented producer, which makes the keta-minimal by numbers of Compound so disappointing. Thankfully, he compensates with the hypnotic dub of Rotational and the noisy stepping rhythms of Multypli.

Grade EP - Loom - Gobstopper Records

Excellent melancholic grime music from Loom on Mr Mitch’s Gobstopper Records. 'Grade' sets the tone: a distorted buzz carries the track throughout whilst the computer game synth melody pogos around the stratosphere with digital abandon. 'Rain Falls Hard Here' is the emo torch song, whilst 'North Star' is a bad but good '90s Manga-movie excursion. Concluding with 'Fukushima', all-in-your-face synth hype.

Dreams of Konders - Simoncino - Crème Organization

 Like his recent ‘For My Father’ release on Crème, Italian producer Simoncino is channelling the influence of a classic house producer. This time it’s Bobby Konders and his aesthetic is audible throughout. From the subtle, hissing percussion and haunting, shimmering keys of the title track to the tracky, eerie vibes of ‘Pyramids’, Simoncino has managed to bring the spirit and sound of a house legend to the modern age without sounding tacky or opportunistic. That’s some achievement.

Pandore - Idioma - Marketing Music

Icy cool electronics from this shadowy presence, Idioma, making a second contribution to Tim Paris’ excellent Marketing Music label. Appearing way back in 2009 with the delicate ‘Landscapes’, Idioma’s return maps out more seductive, woozy synth lines for remixers Tim Paris and Freude Am Tanzen’s Ruede Hagelstein to remix — both working brilliantly odd new-wave and slick proto-techno styles.
