Microthol – Transmissions [TRUST035]

2019 marks the return of Austrian electro duo Microthol with the project’s first EP in 8 years. ‘Transmissions’ is the culmination of years of sonic research. From techno-esque opener ‘Hostile Invasion’ to ‘Transmission 0604’s soundtrack of a burning space ship spiralling out of control – ‘Transmissions’ is much the sonic equivalent of a wormhole linking the aural orbits of Ultradyne and Autechre.

VA – Trust XV-II [TRUSTXVII]

Trust’s anniversary series continues with its second of three chapters: Six far-fiction electro tracks by DJ Stingray, Dez Williams, Scape One, DJ Glow, Microthol, and Biepang continue the story of a human mining operation on 61 Cygnus e, a remote planet orbiting Bessel’s star.

Microthol – Supergravity [TRUST019]

Track artwork

Microthol return to TRUST with a new EP ‘Supergravity’. Far fiction electro once again serves as a way point for tracks like ‘Supergravity Solutions’ and ‘Atlas Detection’, while the outlandish polyrhythmics of ‘Andolit Swaras’ prove microthol’s ability to create strangely compelling abstract electronica. The EP’s final track, ‘The Bliss’, provides another surprising turn. Working with Sensational, legendary MC for the NYC Jungle Brothers, and Dj Brace, Microthol deliver a weighty workout of industrial acid hip-hop.
