CPU label founder Chris Smith handpicks a selection of releases from the label's catalogue.

    Cygnus – Tesseracter

    Newmark Phase was the first release on CPU by Cygnus but his follow up Tesserecter just beats it IMO. Some great machine funk and soul on this album.

    Plant43 – Radiant Flux

    Emile has mastered his craft, and this E.P. really shows an artist who has found their sound.

    Mrs Jynx – Diving Loop

    Hannah’s two earlier albums on Planet Mu are always in my playlist and now Diving Loop joins them.

    Carbo Flex – Trifolium

    I found Graeme on soundcloud and was instantly hooked by his melodies and love for IDM - a style rarely done well these days.

    DJ VLR – CPU II

    A mix CD of the CPU catalogue upto the point of its release. VLR is one of my favourite DJs and I was chuffed when he agreed to do the label mix (he also did an earlier cassette label mix for CPU if you can find it!). A great place to sample the label output.

    Automatic Tasty – The Life Parochial

    Jonny sent me these tracks to get some feedback as they’re a departure from CPU’s usual output, but I couldn’t stop listening to them and the rest is history.

    MNLTH – Flektro

    Dave is one of the last of the certified braindance artists. This E.P. demonstrates his talent with a mix of retro and future. I first heard the demo track ‘Dink’ which reminded me of vintage 808 state / A guy called Gerald work which can only mean it’s a winner.

    Scape One – Recombination

    It was only a matter of time before Kurt joined CPU. A seasoned artist with a big collection of synths is always a good (re)combination.

    Mikron – Sleep Paralysis

    I was stunned when I first heard this E.P. These guys are pure fire.

    Microlith – Hello 307

    Debut E.P. from a fantastic new talent residing in Malta. Big up MNLTH for pointing me in his direction. Rhys loves melody, classic techno and vintage synths, nuff said.
