N.O.I.A. / Rubicon / Rude 66 – Morning Bells [COTF16]

Crimes Of The Future continues to demonstrate its expertise in the field of modern day electro and wave based music with this incredible one off missive from an unlikely super group. N.O.I.A, Rubicon and Rude 66 join forces for the bright and bold “Morning Bells,” which stirs up a generous dose of Italo, techno and electro in a cauldron and serves it through a massive wall of synth-powered sound. Who else to remix such a concoction but Timothy J. Fairplay then? The multi-faceted London producer stays true to the original’s dazzling colour and simply beefs up the beats for a cracking alternative mix to the original.

Mystic Bill – The Lost Casette Trax Vol.1 [COTF012]

Chicago house legend Mystic Bill joins Crimes Of The Future with two straight up jacking house tracks with bonus instrumental and a mind bending remix by Scott Fraser. The A cut Frequency 9 is a rolling jacker with rattling percussion and dark synth stabs to dement the warehouse dancefloor and very much in the line of Bill’s trademark style. A2 see’s Fraser return the remix favour delivering a massive floor bumping remix adding all new drums, 303 and huge bassline giving a nod to the classic sound of those Sex Trax/ Power Music 12’s from the 1990’s with his 11 minute mind control remix…. The frequency cannot be controlled! Side B has both the original and a bonus intrumental of The Ship Is Sinking, a dark slice of jacking house complete with real tension and total mastery of the sampler for those able to spot it.

Bulb – Bulb [COTF008]

Crimes of the future are proud to present the first recorings from Bulb. Bulb are Willie Burns, Scott Fraser and Timothy J. Faiplay. Side A combines ghetto techno breaks with something from wayward Kosmiche studio experiments in deepest Germany. On side two dark ambient synthesis and stabbing drums combine to drop you somewhere in a world of psychedelia and cavernous cave dwellings.

Haunted Doorbell – Unconnected Thoughts On Jacking [COTF007]

Haunted Doorbell are Timothy J. Fairplay and Matilda Tristram. ‘Unconnected thoughts on jacking’ is four tracks of naive melodies, rough slamjack drums, and new age atmospheres. ‘Starclash’ kicks off side A, with its dramatic arpeggios and SID chip crashes, Techno to soundtrack the Saturday night laser show at the planetarium. Following is ‘A night of adventure’ with its eastern scales and washy broken chorus unit hiss. On side B we have ‘Beautiful Sheffield’ – an ode to electronic music’s (possibly) most important British city and the title track rounds of the EP – house music for listening to while looking out to sea.

Perseus Traxx – Dr Burisch [COTF006]

The new release from Perseus Traxx ‘Dr Burisch’ on Crimes of the Future, is a four track soundtrack to some forgotten alien abduction documentary… maybe. Starting off with ‘Rainy Tuesday’ and its skipping pitch shift melodies, and followed by ‘Lotus Protocol’ and its almost Richard D. hook. On the flip we have the title track, slow and building, very much the ‘theme’ of the piece. The EP finishes with ‘Electrical Surge’, and its static crackle of radio interference and damaged power lines.

Nothing But Blood – White Of The Eye [COTF005]

‘White of the Eye’ is the first release under “Nothing but Blood” from Scott Fraser, a direct link back to Scott’s earlier 90’s work and sound around the darker realms of techno and harder-edged Chicago house. The EP title refers back to a favourite Donald Cammell film of Scott’s from 88′. ‘White of the Eye’ on the A-side is an 11 minute extended mix of the lead cut. Silent Servant on remix duties delivers an amyl fuelled techno bomb landing somewhere in an 80’s new york basement. Diving deeper on B2 it features Atlanta resident Claire Elise Tippins on vocals.

Antoni Maiovvi joins the Crimes Of The Future family in a perfect match of Italo horror running out of the disco, leaving behind the gentle thud of dark techno in a dark Roman Alleyway.
