The Sorcerers – Summoning the Monkey God [ATA017]

‘Summoning The Monkey God’ covers a wide range of influences: Ethiopiques Ethio-Jazz rubs up against European library music of the 60s and 70s. The Sorcerers seamlessly blend these disparate elements into one cohesive sound. Based in ATA Records’ home of Leeds, The Sorcerers form the backbone of the ATA Records house band including drummer Joost Hendrickx (Kefaya, Shatner’s Bassoon, Abstract Orchestra) and ATA label heads Neil Innes (Bass & Guitar) and Pete Williams (Woodwinds & Percussion). Bass clarinets, flutes, and esoteric percussion that sit alongside bass, guitar and drums are essential to The Sorcerers sound providing cinematic textures on top of a solid rhythmic foundation.

VA – Wave Function Collapse [N2MU003]

‘N2MU003’ is focused on one of the most interesting enigmas around the quantum physics field, the wave function collapse. Wandering around quantic and Newtonian worlds, The Exaltics, Das Muster, Datawave, Module 3F, Promising Younster, Mönsul and Vronsky convey an homogeneous message, without losing sight of their creative individual characters.

The Zenobit3 – Interstellar (NCFM 02) [RS19]

NCFM is where Joaquin B. Lapeña displays his most radical activist spirit, under “The Zenobit3” moniker. On this second installment of the NCFM trilogy, The Zenobit3 invites us to board his starship in order to take us on an interstellar journey through all corners of the Universe, entering the darkest zones whilst crossing through the sparkles of once brilliant stars. ‘Defend your Values’, it’s a clean track with a crisp mix, where evolving pads finely weaved with the deep bass stand out. A lively build up based on a constant beat goes straight to the deepest layers of the soul, 100% Zenobit3 style. Interstellar is the climax of the trip, the final instant of the cosmic experiences just lived. It fills our bodies with emotion through epic melodies that operate like doses of encapsulated faith.

Jorge Velez – The Saturn Star [UTTER4]

Utter presents ‘The Saturn Star’, a score to an imaginary film by music producer and visual artist Jorge Velez. Inspired by The Third Ear Band, late-period Coil, Carlos Peron’s lurid soundtracks and European folk music, Velez’s score accompanies the evocative tale of a 16th-century physician-alchemist hunted down by The Inquisition in western Europe. Velez purposefully limited the amount of equipment he used to create a cohesive sonic environment, this time restricting himself to a Korg MonoPoly and Prophet 6. The music flowed quickly, with the entire project recorded and mixed within two weeks. The resulting work veers from moments of unsettling intensity to blissful beauty, underpinned by a lingering sense of mystery and paranoia.

Healing Force Project – Sideral Escape [AMEN008]

Since nearly a decade now, Italian born artist Antonio Marini is going through a sonic adventure known as Healing Force Project. Discreetly building up his musical blueprint, he slowly reached a cult status as a visionary who is blending electronic music with free-jazz in an atypical, anarchic, spontaneous and original way. On ‘Sideral Escape’ the artist shows himself in his different facets ranging from ambient to jazz to techno.

His Master’s Voice – Transition [DSR-E10]

Mysterious German producer His Master’s Voice makes his debut on Delsin Records. With three mind bending originals and an absorbing Vril rework on board his entry on the Delsin e-series is a deeply immersive beat trip into another dimension. The roughed edged ambiance of ‘Fire Red’ opens the dance in soothing yet engaging fashion with superbly spacious soundscapes pulling you in and slowly involving into a foggy kick drum extravaganza. ‘Eve’ then offers a deep and propulsive electro groove with glitchy atmospheres. Lead track ‘Transition’ hits hard, an intergalactic trip on turbulent stuttering drums and whipping synths. To finalize an immersive EP, close friend Vril jumps in for a rework of ‘Eve’ where he smoothly connects the dots between his typical dark bass lines and blistering dub chords.
