    15 years since his first recordings, Leafcutter John returns with a dramatic new LP Resurrection for Desire Path Recordings. Always on our radar Leafcutter John has produced some of the most forward-thinking electronic music of the past fifteen years, from the drastic, agoraphobic electronics hidden within the Housebound Spirit for Planet Mu to his work as part of the post-jazz explorationists Polar Bear. Leafcutter John has tirelessly pushed the boundaries of abstract electronic music. Thankfully, Resurrection shows that he has no sign of letting up and across its vast plain of richly produced sounds that references everything from the GRM work of Bernard Parmigiani to the abstract science in sound of Robert Henke Resurrection is a fully formed body of work which pushes the envelope of what we can do with computer based music but still manages to keep the elements of a human at the core dictating each texture and feeling, a touch that upon hearing this will leave you noticing its absence from a lot of electronic records around right now.

    Schneider Tm follows up his 2012 'Construction Sounds', which took the sounds of construction sites as the starting point for his compositions, with an album that explores all the myriad possibilities in sound, texture and mood of the electric guitar. Guitar-based improvisation may be nothing new as a concept, but Schneider still manages to coax something fresh and different from the instrument, from the quaking feedback soundscapes of 'Teilhard' to the low-end heavy 'Elefantenhaut' and graceful layers of opening track 'Landslide'.

    After the brief Charles Cohen reinterpreted teaser back in 2014, Indonesian hardcore outfit Senyawa return, as promised, to Rabih Beaini’s Morphine imprint with an extremely intrepid full length entitled Menjadi. From the outset, its clear we’re in for something completely original with the unnerving ‘Bala’, clashing torrents of screeched strings against a deep, Tuvan-styled throat gurgle, followed by the more intense, ritualistic drumming sessions ‘Gaib’ and ‘Hadirlah Suci’. The impassioned battle cry of ‘Bekal Iimu’ provides a moment of respite, building a tense atmosphere for the mesmerizing, opiatic guitar and vocal duet of ‘Di Kala Sudah’. ‘Menjadi Jadi’ regresses back to the kind of haunting, sorcery-tinged percussion one would expect to find at a tribal sacrifice deep in the Indonesian outback, jumping in and out of rhythm, spiked with a galvanizing Shaman’s chant; finishing up on the dark ethereal string outro ‘Gugur’.

    Fast-rising sound artist, record collector and musician Beatrice Dillon (Where To Now?, Trilogy Tapes) teams up with multi-talented musician Rupert Clervaux for this dreamy rhythm record of Studies I-XVII for Samplers and Percussion. Recorded sans software interference, the 17 short pieces here reflect a process that involved live playing with various percussion instruments and manipulation of samples. The tracks arrive, whisper their sweet complex rhythms, and leave in a beautiful breath - like Moondog ghosting in from the grave for a jam session. Also tipped if you’re into the drum-loaded recent workouts of Shackleton. A gorgeous, addictive record that stands repeated listening…

    The Death Of Rave hits its 10th release with a dream collaborative release from two of the most relevant names in future facing ‘dance’ music; Sheffield based, SND veteran Mark Fell and Budapest sound artist Gábor Lázár. On The Neurobiology of Moral Decision Making, the duo deliver 10 pieces of off the grid, unsyncopated mastery, deconstructing of the steadfast preconceptions of dance music through a suite of constantly shifting time signatures, sporadic claps and sterile, modernistic melody. Such production methods obliterate the deeply rooted notions of rhythm, ushering in a new age of dance floor exploration. Each piece is untitled, and shifts from bursts of sonic spasm (‘1’,‘6’) to more fully realised extrapolations of their off-kilter methods (‘3’, ‘4’) where we’re able to appreciate the subtle rhythmic morphs on a greater time plane. All of this builds to the 12 minute plus closing tenth piece, where the duo let loose on a mind-bending jaunt of rhythmic and sonic convulsions, fully exhibiting the possibilities and potential of Max/MSP technology.

    London-born brothers Ben and Tom Page aka RocketNumberNine release their first single since second album MeYouWeYou in 2013. Since then they’ve worked with artists including Neneh Cherry, Four Tet, and James Holden, and ‘Two Ways’ comes via Holden’s label Border Community. The single features two tracks of improvisational Afro-kraut-jazz, both recorded live and produced by Holden. ‘Two Ways’ gradually builds to an awesome crescendo over its elongated running time, while the shorter ‘Balance of Imbalance’ melds rave stab synths with crashing grooves.

    Dawn Mok is an open collective featuring members from across the US, Asia, and Europe, but it’s mostly a vehicle for founding member Felix Mura and vocalist Bundi. After Dial included Dawn Mok’s track ‘Like Thoughts Or Moments We’ll Fall’ on their 15th birthday compilation earlier in 2015, the label are releasing an album from the crew called Eternal Love. Eternal Love is something like an R&B record that’s been broken down, with some incredibly lush melodies and Art of Noise-esque sound designs underscoring tender and emotional vocal songwriting. The album was mixed by Ville Haimala (Renaissance Man) and mastered by Rashad Becker (PAN).

    The mysterious Russian Tsarlag is the project of Carlos Gonzalez, with his debut Not Not Fun album. His sound is a deconstructed version of Americana – grime-soaked guitar rhythms sound like they’re born from the loins of the Deep South, heat creeps in the apparatus giving off a creaky mechanical feel and intoxication reaches dangerous levels making for a dizzying yet fully enticing ten tracks worth.

    Now in her sixth decade making music, Pauline Oliveros – a pioneering experimental musician and sound artist – releases a new album in collaboration with Ione, former director of the Oliveros-founded Deep Listening Institute. Water Above Sky Below Now was produced using the Expanded Instrument System (EIS), an electronic sound processing environment that allows musicians to transform their acoustic input in real time. Here, Oliveros uses a specially-tuned digital accordion, manipulated via the EIS and diffused through different channels, to create a soundscape in three parts. Ione provides improvised spoken word over the resulting sound.

    Brainfeeder’s latest signing is a vocalist, multi-instrumentalist, producer and composer, hailing from Philadelphia by way of Los Angeles. Ryat’s knack is for juxtaposing elegant classicism and impressive cinematic sounds with big, gritty beats and mad-cap experimentalism in what results in a landscape of abstract artwork. Lead track, ‘Howl’, collects seemingly disconnected pools of beats along with an array of unforeseen sounds and surprises.
