Orson Records kick off 2021 with the in-form, Dublin based artist Cignol. The A1 is a groove ridden electro workout, which features an unmistakable Cignol acid line. The A2 showcases the first insight into Transparent Sound’s 2021 output; a stripped back remix which retains his signature style. The B1 offers more groove ridden electro, this time featuring an unforgettable melody alongside lucious pads. The B2 features a rough and ready electro cut, with a mean acid line penetrating throughout.
Cignol with some rich electro on the new Nocta Numerica release.
Emotions Electric presents the Planetary Highways compilation, a deep journey thru Interplanetary sounds in a beautiful Gatefold sleeve with artwork from the legendary Detroit visual artist Abdul Haqq.
The first transmission from the Altered States label, which is a new Furthur Electronix off shoot label dealing in limited hand stamped pressings. Coming from Cignol, It’s a cosmic adventure that rides on undulating bass pushes, with far-sighted chords bringing that forlorn sense of melancholic that makes Detroit house music so well loved. ‘Altered Sense’ is a popping electro cut with smooth drum funk and comforting chords, while the flip is more unhinged as it rolls through rugged betas on ‘Gatwick Runner’ then manic melodic patterns and glitchy hits on ‘Last Chances.’
Building on the outright success of his previous outings for the label, The Hidden Figure return to deliver a cutting edge EP of beautiful acid for Exalt Records. 4 acid tracks in various styles, this EP seems a fitting end to a stellar run for this shadowy and mysterious pseudonym of super producer Paul Cignol.
The second release in the Exit Planet Earth compilation vinyl series features four exclusive tracks designed for space travel, including the first ever collaboration between Keith Tucker of Aux 88 and Carl Finlow. The resulting track ‘Coder’ is an electro masterpiece. The more established electro pairing of Jensen Interceptor and Assembler Code hit heavy with ‘Red Cell’ while Voigtmann brings the bass to space with ‘Subtopia’. The record is rounded off beautifully by Cignol with Detroit infused string sections and harmonies on his ’51D’ track.
The stars align as Dublin’s Cignol graces Distant Worlds with a heavyweight transmission of rich acidic electro. Cosmic hardware voyages are the order of the day: wallshaking mechanical bassweight complimented perfectly by beautiful, intricate melodies. Each track paints a beautiful picture of interstellar wonder perfectly aligned with what we have come to expect from the Distant Worlds stable. The galaxy’s dancefloors should seriously be considering some structural reinforcement as this reléase is sure to cause considerable damage.
Cignol returns to Lunar Disko after his two outstanding EPs on the LDRX series. Four more electro-acid gems gravitating onto LDR from the futuristic world of Cignol.
New intergalactic trip delivered by Nebulae. 8 tracks covering a wide palette of dreamy and lushy textures, from melancholic idm to epic electro, all seasoned with a pinch of ambient.
Cignol fires up the blasters and sets a course for ‘Hidden Galaxies’ – a 303 fuelled electro trip into the outer reaches of the unknown universe. Delving through throbbing gristly bass lines, pounding, intricate ‘click clack’ drum programming and aquatic, electric cool.
