This weekend just gone Combat Recordings boss Stormfield took himself to Boom Town fest and delivered one of his trademark bashment sets we’ve seen this go off first hand but were unable to join in the latest happening. So we were pretty happy when he dropped it over in an email offering us the exclusive on the mix – you can download and stream in the player below and here’s some words from the man himself to introduce the set properly:
This was recorded live last Saturday at Boomtown Fest 2014, in the Garden of Legends. 100 minutes of bashment, jungle, glitchy acid and ritualistic techy drum’n’bass in a relentless, bass-driven Combat Recs style. It includes some unreleased dubs, and a sneak preview of a beast of a tune “Doomsday Dancehall” by King Cannibal, which gets released on the Ten Years of Combat compilation this autumn.
The set was recorded internally, thus does not include the microphone. There was some gremlins in the dubsiren channel so all reverb, delay effects used were internal as well. There’s a couple slip-ups but i’ve left them in and blame the 52% plum brandy.

Curated by Rob Swain and Andrea Parker Rewire seeks to realign the relationship between art and music by asking the musician to respond to artwork instead of the artwork’s traditional role in supporting a musical release. They’ve linked together some of the leading urban artists and electronic experimentalists today to be involved including Cristian Vogel, Luke Vibert, Evac and Clatterbox on the audio side and Augustine Kofie, Moneyless, sheOne and Phil Ashcroft on the visual art.
In order to realise this ambitious project they’ve set up a Kickstarter campaign to fund it, they’re nearly at the target of £5,000 but are calling on last minute pledgers to realise their goal before this Saturday 9th August.
For more information and to pledge check the Kickstarter here.

Composed entirely on the Cwejman S1 MKII, which according to the maker’s website is “a semi modular analogue synthesizer and modules for the 19′ Eurorack systems” Ritual by Surachai has all of that innate listening to pleasure to it that analogue signals never fail to impart.
There’s extensive insight and information on the Surachai website covering its production (here) and artwork (here) and you can stream and purchase the album via the player below.
Full disclosure, I was tipped on this via Venitian Snares recent fun and interesting interview with XLR8R
Luke’s Anger is best known for his wonked out techno but for his latest LP, out now on Bonus Round, he’s taken things off on a tangent employing a selection of cut up iconic rave sounds to form the album. Don’t get me wrong it also includes some Electribe fuelled techno work outs and also includes his Lee Scratch Perry guested digi dub track Earthworm. You can listen in full (and purchase) via this Bandcamp player…

Just the other week Ben Pest upped a heap of his back catalogue to Bandcamp including both of his Panic Bridge EP’s (which were only previously available on vinyl) as well as his Victim and Don’t releases. You can pay what you want on his page here.
Here’s one of our personal favourites from the collection:
Planet Mu parties have always been a highlight of ours so we’re happy they’re back this weekend at fabric with Luke Vibert headlining a live set from Neil Landstrumm as well as sets from Ital, Ital Tek and some guaranteed rinsing from Remarc.
Hessle Audio are also hosting a room at the club with experimentalist Matthew Herbert as special guest.
Here’s some music and interviews to whet your appetite for the night ahead. More info and tickets can be found here.

It was just the other month that we helped announce Boris Noiz and Ingen’s collaborative EP for Combat Redcordings – a fierce techno workout which featured a frenetically worked sci-fi edit by Monster X and Stormfield’s side project Fausten (Stormfield also being the man behind the host label). Just recently a label associate from camp disco_r.dance handed them a video to sit alongside the Fausten remix; a visual that riffs of the label’s menacing logo with its form and generally evil presence being abstracted throughout the edit.
Label boss Stormfield had some words to say about the video’s theme to give us some background on the imagery:
“The mask is called a “Hanya”, its a demon mask in Japanese mythology. There’s a famous film called Oni Baba about this. The mask is cursed, it makes people fear the wearer, but price for that power is that it cannot be taken off – to do so permanently damages the user’s face. All very cheery stuff…
The video was done by a longtime collaborator, Dan from Discordance. He listened to the track and just decided to have a go, and it turned out immense! He was also watching a movie “Valhalla Rising” and said it fit the film’s “chapters” perfectly. I haven’t watched the film yet.
I do think it perfectly captures the vibe of the track’s sound: tension, relentless battle-charge, multiple sustained explosions and superstructures collapsing, all happening so rapidly that it feels slow and almost still, rapturous / contemplative.
Huge thanks to Dan for his awesome work!”
