Mala follows two years behind the decks with a move back to the mixing desk, with the astonishingly heavy-in-all-the-right-places rumble in the jungle of Mirrors, released by long time ally and tastemaker of the otherworldly Gilles Peterson on his Brownswood imprint. Mirrored comes eleven years after his first DMZ plate and follows his previous long players; Mala In Cuba and Return II Space. Here he uses the extended length of the album to build a floor-to-ceiling speaker stack on top of previous quests to bridge the gap between the basement soundsystem blues vibes of early DMZ dubstep and audiences further afield, away from the secluded basement parties of South LDN boroughs where he cut his teeth (and dubs), to a bigger platform that can be translated to anywhere in the world where there's a big rig with some bone-shaking subs.
We have been waiting for this… Our Volume One is nearly worn down. Second issue of of the Sherwood At The Controls compilation, following April 2015’s first set, this LP highlights Adrian Sherwood's industrial and post-punk rooted sound from 1985 until 1990. What a studio master this man was (is). This charts a delirious path through electro, industrial, noise, hip-hop, afrobeat and dub reggae, featuring bands and artists such as On-U Sound regulars Dub Syndicate, African Head Charge and Jamaican icon Lee "Scratch" Perry and tracks by Pankow, Tackhead and KMFDM. Five unreleased joints here, plus another eleven detonators. Purchase this
Patashnik is a journey into the unknown, a push towards moving away from the nightlife and a warrant to delve into the deepest corners of the dense forests of Jenssen's country of origin, Norway. For those unfamiliar with this LP but who have a penchant for or the early to mid 90's sound of labels such as Warp, Clear and of course Apollo (obviously that's gonna be all of ya!) we urge you to give this some of your time. In many ways the forgotten link between Ambient 4: On Land, U.F. Orb, Bytes & Black Secret Technology. Patashnik isn't only a landmark electronica LP but a timely reminder of where this sound came from and how even after twenty-two years this sounds as otherworldly and as futuristic as it did on those long nights all those years ago.
Pioneering electro producer DMX Krew made his debut on the London based imprint Hypercolour earlier this year with 'You Exist.' The monochrome cover design perfectly encapsulated the otherworldly sci-fi excursions on the album and is now printed on onto a black continental t-shirt.
Gqom Oh! teams up with the Rome-based collective Crudo Volta to release this mixtape that features 14 tracks showcasing the rough and raw sound coming from the streets of Durban. Put together by label boss Nan Kolè, to soundtrack the Woza Taxi documentary that he has been working on since April 2016, he has carefully selected a collection of tracks that showcases the different and new music from Durban, from Core Tribe through Sgubhu to Gqom. By being welcomed in to the scene and being a champion of the sound to a wider global audience, Kolè has been given in depth access this incredible dynamic movement, that gives a sonic voice to the youth in the townships. The 90 minute tape consists of two sides, with Side A containing seven tracks and Side B containing a continuous mix and with a digital download code granting access to the entire compilation.
