Negative Halluciantion – EP [CHANNEL072]

Noleian Reusse (half of Africans with Mainframes) and Thomas Cox (one third of Pittsburgh Track Authority) got together in the studio in Pittsburgh during a week of extreme social unrest in the USA in late 2015, resulting in these recordings. The tracks are crafted with a stripped back electronic funk and a stark, relentless feel that reflects the energy in the air at the time.

Dexter St. Jacques – Ancient Way of Knowing [SEQ013]

Solo outings from Africans With Mainframes member Noleian Reusse are relatively rare. Here he dons a brand new alias, the Eddie Murphy-referencing Dexter St Jacques, and sets off on a techno trip into the ether. Opener “Laamb” [sic] is a curious but alluring beast, with undulating synthesizer and acid lines riding a fizzing, almost bubbly drum machine rhythm. It feels like electronic jazz with techno drums, yet it’s not overtly jazzy. There’s a similar feel about the more distorted “Temporal Understanding”, where rising and falling melodies lines and winding electronics compete for attention over a hissing drum machine groove.

Africans with Mainframes – K.M.T. [SJRD333]

Jamal Moss, aka Hieroglyphic Being, returns this time under the alias Africans with Mainframes. With fellow Chicagoan Noleian Reusse they have been releasing music under the name Africans with Mainframes for over 15 years now. The K.M.T. LP is the debut album from the group, a collage of apocalyptic Chicago acid meets industrial and transcendental post-house machine funk. Both intense and unique, the album of forward-thinking, experimental, boundary-pushing Afro-futurist electronic music shows why Hieroglyphic Being is regarded as one of the most serious purveyors of experimental electronic music today.

Black Tekno emerges from the undercurrent of Chicago with it’s first release, an acid infused, floor jacking four track EP from Noleian Reusse entitled “Second Language”. The songs here are aimed at the dancer, ranging from emotional sci fi to straight up party jams. All tracks were recorded live – hands on the keys, knobs and faders of Noleian’s analog hardware setup.

Africans With Mainframes return with ‘The Sound of Something Ending’, a monstrous three track EP full of heart-pounding, dirty industrial styled acid house in the way that they can only do. Along with the title track, ‘The Pleasure Seekers’ and ‘98.6’ throw down some seriously heavy energy.
