Sheffield’s Central Processing Unit has been one of the most prolific electro and techno labels over the last few years. Their fifth release of 2016 comes from up-and-coming producer Rhys “Microlith” Celeste, who made his debut on the imprint a few months back. As debut albums go, Dance With Me is a fine effort. Sitting somewhere between the underwater intensity of Drexciya, the melodiousness of Artificial Intelligence-era Warp releases, and the spacey sound of vintage British intelligence techno, the album bristles with gentle acid lines, ambient chords, punchy rhythms and Motor City inspired melodies.
London Modular Alliance is the raw and unpredictable music project from the UK’s best known, dedicated modular synth shop London Modular. Its members Simon Lynch, Phil Ventre and Gavin Pykerman met through a shared passion in modular synthesisers. Impromptu gatherings and jams soon turned into live performances at clubs, festivals and museums. They create an intense live show with a huge setup of self-assembled modular gear. Every set starts with one small looping beginning – a patch – and is expanded into a deep sonic landscape. With the use of cables they build unexpected circuits and explore the power of pure electronic sounds without the use of a digital software infrastructure. No laptops, no button pushing, everything is created on the spot using modular synthesizers and is based on live improvisations. Overall LMA tries to keep its live sets in the dark: unrecorded, off the internet and only for those who are present in the moment. A clear break with the capture-all mentality of the internet age.
