Review: Egyptrixx - A/B Til Infinity

The songs don?t appear to be driven by musical ideas, but instead by a smart combination of stylistic elements. This, ironically, is what is so attractive about the proposition of "A/B Til Infinity."

Review: Recondite - Hinterland

A blueprint of instrumental techno perhaps? From the first note of the long-player, one is lured to take a step through the woods. And then a next and a next, trekking through the hinterland of Recondite's mind.

Review: Four Tet - Beautiful Rewind

Whether one views him as a trend jumper, or Johnny-come-lately artist, or simply a musical genius, make no mistake, there's always a point when you'll come to a greater appreciation and understanding of where you need to be at any given point in time.

Review: Lawrence - Films & Windows

Where modern genre tracks favour straightjacketed formulas and big hooks to capture attention, Lawrence's music shuns the approach, preferring an expressionist style of music with the artist at the centre.

Review: Vakula - You've Never Been To Konotop

Add this not just to your shopping cart if you can, but to your quest for life, art and spiritual development.

Review: Oliver Deutschmann - Out of the Dark

For what it's worth, this album is an excellent showcase of Oliver's deep repertoire and what Vidab as a label has to offer. It has its hits and misses but fans shouldn't be disappointed. Also 'Out of the Dark - Remixes' is out now featuring three of my more favored tracks on the album. Check it out.

Review: Space Dimension Controller - Welcome to Mikrosector-50

Mr. 8040 has managed to write a storybook and a soundtrack to it that could very well be Star Trek re-visited, beyond the 24th Century, only a hell of a lot more funked up.

Review: Nosaj Thing - Home LP

While it won't be surprising that this album might have mixed reviews, it's quite certain that longevity is to be found in change for Nosaj Thing...it does leave one wondering whether it would have made a difference if 'Home' was someone else's debut effort instead?

Review: Redshape - Square

You heard him perform it live at the 3rd year anniversary, now own a piece of Redshape at home. His sophomore album 'Square' continues in the vein of his elegant yet rugged house/techno, orchestrated in outer-space, future-baroque tones and percussive layers.

Review: Four Tet - Pink

Four Tet's 'Pink' is, also in some ways, less of an album and more so a compendium anyway...a culmination of his journey so far, both as a musician and DJ.

Review: Vince Watson - Every Soul Needs A Guide

Thoughtfully deep and diverse, Vince Watson's 7th album, 'Every Soul Needs A Guide' shows the veteran producer's lighter, nu-jazz side.

Review: Ital - Hive Mind

Creative producer alert. Ital showcases his varied influences in shoegaze and noise with his album 'Hive Mind', which is used to dialogue effectively against house foundations in this post-genre world.

Review: Delano Smith - An Odyssey

"Without Delano there would be no Derrick" - Derrick May. Detroit's Delano Smith has been around the circuit since DJing in 1978 but only releases his first LP now (albeit after many singles). A real treat for fans tuned into his sound, but for new converts? The answer is 'maybe'.

Review: Monolake - Ghosts

Is the future a triumph of sound over music? Monolake's new album, Ghosts, as reviewed by Justin, seems to point in that direction.
