Welcome to the Bleep Weekly Roundup, our guide to the best new releases. Our album of the week is by Don Zilla on Nyege Nyege Tapes’ sub-label Hakuna Kulala. A stunning debut from an excitingly singular talent, flying the flag for East African electronics and showcasing the sound's wild potential to the world.
Our EP of the week is by Bristol five-piece SCALPING on Houndstooth. Capturing their unique brand of boundary pushing techno and the intensity of their notorious live shows.

Laila Sakini’s previously cassette only album finally in on vinyl and TSVI joins forces with Randomer and Seven Orbits on Nervous Horizon.
