bvdub – Decades On Divided Stars [AFFNLP03LTD]

On “Decades On Divided Stars” Brock Van Wey, aka bvdub, presents his first album on Affin, each of its tracks spanning his trademark Odyssean length, with a sonic and emotional density second to none. You are lost… losing your sense of time… of self. Yet finding your inner existence in its inwardly-folding galaxies. Your thoughts and emotions revolve, as planets caught in gravitational pull, before you suddenly awake, as if from a dream, unaware of how much time has passed. Only the stars will tell…

Hems – Chaotic Affair [TITR001]

Titrate is a platform for the publication of experimental sonic pieces, set out on a path of continual research and exploration. Spread across five tracks, the release transits a number of spaces – from the post-inertia stirrings of “Chaotic Affair”, to the cutting and more austere drone layout of “One”. Cosmic tech broadcast “Beautiful weekend with friends” is a fizzing metamorphosis that melts and mutates itself into “Switching Gears”, a darker and more liquid environment. The final track “Stain” concludes the release with a musique concrète touch. With an overall meditative albeit experimental tone, this package is replete with rich textural qualities luring the listener into auditory immersion.

Donato Dozzy – 124 [TRESOR332]

DOZZY, Donato - 124

The unassuming maestro of techno music Donato Dozzy returns to Tresor Records on its 30th year with a new EP entitled 124. True to form, 124 meddles sharp rhythmic minimalism and diverse textures, each track pushing at the epiphanic threshold as the boss of Spazio Disponibile allows his deeply intuitive productions to take effect.

Blue – The Path Of Least Resistance Meets The Point Of No Return [SFIC002]

BLUE - The Path Of Least Resistance Meets The Point Of No Return

28 years ago Chris Mann and Paul Darking released their debut EP on Andrew Weatherall’s (RIP) Sabres Of Paradise. A year later another EP came out on the same imprint, followed by two albums on Weatherall’s label Emissions Audio Output and a bunch of EP’s on Emissions’ sub- labels. Two more albums saw the light of day on Iris Light Records, but the start of the new millennium brought a stop to the creative output of the production duo known as Blue.

Shifted – Constant Blue Light [AVNLP006]

SHIFTED - Constant Blue Light

Shifted offers the latest distillation of his trademark sound. Guy Brewer’s fourth studio album and the first to arrive on his own Avian imprint, “Constant Blue Light”, explores new avenues in caustic minimalism. Eschewing the booming effervescence of his own more plosive dance floor material – Shifted takes a no less nuanced, but decidedly more introspective angle on this new LP. At the centre of Brewer’s practice as an artist, there has always been a sense of dedication to the refinement of a singular idea. In some ways “Constant Blue Light” represents a move closer to the apex of this approach. A continued exploration from a focused and diligent artist that provides yet another fully formed and beautifully articulated component to his own discography and that of the Avian label.

Dino Sabatini – Mantis 06 [DSR/MTS06]

SABATINI, Dino - Mantis 06

Dino Sabatini arrives on Delsin’s Mantis series with a charged, imposing statement of meditative techno. Sabatini has been at the forefront of the deep techno scene since the mid 00s, cultivating a sound with his own Outis Music which acknowledges the structures of club music while reaching beyond obvious drama and brute force, offering something more subliminal instead. On Mantis 06, Sabatini blurs the lines between organic and electronic percussion as he doubles down on steadfast rhythms executed with delicacy and impact in equal measure.
