On Release: Surachai – Ritual

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

On Release: Lukes Anger – Show Me Some Lazer

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…

Download: Ben Pest Puts Up [some of] His Back Catalogue on Bandcamp

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:

Point B – Heart Of Matter [Frijsfo Beats]

It’s been a year since Point B has released any music he still gets busy in the studio, making his way in the real world as a sound designer. This ear and capability for engineering advanced sonics has always been evident on his production but for this album, Heart Of Matter he’s employed these skills in an entirely new and totally compelling way.

Soft stepping padwork provides the bed for many of the tracks, linking in and around the 2 step patterns he’s known for but the similarities stop there. This record sits closer to shoegaze-ey electronica akin to the likes of DNTEL and he pulls it off nicely, as soon as ‘Surely Now’ hits, the record takes on a whole new dimension and explodes spectacularly into bliss psychadelia. Suits those summer dreams we all like to think up as the promise in the midst of the air of spring blooms.

Coming Soon: Defekt – Below Ground EP [Komisch]

Your number one Irish electro producer is back with a new EP for German techno label Komisch. Defekt’s been hankering down in the studio for all for of 2014 and has announced quite a few interesting remix and releases with his collaboration with Sunil Sharpe as Tinfoil getting some good support and remixes confirmed for Hardfloor and Morphology.

Some audio went online for a techno skewed EP for German label Komisch which you can check out here.

Tudor Acid On His Tonamente EP and Full Stream Of Shakker

null+void goes way back with Tudor Acid’s Richard Wigglesworth. It’s quite interesting actually with the timing of this piece because I think our paths first crossed at the first I Love Acid party at Corsica Studios all those 7 years ago – the same celebration of the 303 which coming to its final conclusion next Saturday night. It just puts it in perspective how long Wigglesworth has been producing his abstracted beats and melodies and consistently relaying this through his live sets and release on his label Tudor Beats. His journey’s been well documented on null+void since our beginnings also with him contributing 2 different mixes to our podcast series so we really have felt his progression in sound and moods.

His latest EP, Tonamente, which was released earlier this week on Tudor Beats has received support from both Rob Hall and Craig Richards – both DJ’s who are known for their expansive range of off-kilter selections which is a suitable prop that Wigglesworth is more than deserving of. We really wanted to offer our own support for this release too and instead of asking him providing another live set for the mix series we asked if we could present a full stream of track Shakker one of our favourites from the EP (as well as Wigglesworth’s) just to really to allow you to feel where he’s at now with this EP. We also had a chat about his current state of play and how his machines are always plugged in no matter what else is going on in his life.

Richard with a lot of your EP’s I know that a lot of thought and feeling shape your approach – what went into this release?

Well with a lot of the previous releases, there has indeed been a concept- coastguard advisory service was a hybrid of sailing holidays as a kid combined with these children’s films we used to see at film club in school. With this release, the whole thing was much more personal – instead of writing music about this conceptual thing, I was writing very directly and emotionally about stuff that was happening in my life at the time.

Have you changed your set up around for this one – what did you use this time did you do anything on the technical side differently?

I kept the same set-up which has basically been the same for the last 3 years – Yamaha Motif workstation and various analog bits including 303 and tudor acid box and Logic. Keeping the same set up meant that I was able to do stuff more quickly as there was less new stuff to learn. Having said that – there were some new tricks – I got a quadreverb which warmed things up nicely and the string sound you hear on “Tearbye” is my first attempt at wavetable synthesis!

and you did the artwork yourself again – can you tell us about how you tied in the visual aesthetic to the sound? Is it hard to match these up or does it just feel quite natural

Well, I had the feeling of this EP being hand crafted, hand made and orgain so I think that the artwork/design came from that really – I’ve been into the calligraphy for a while and it felt like with the sleeve I was kind of writing a letter or something like that.

I know you’ve just moved location in your hometown of Bristol – has that impeded your work in anyway/? what else can we look forward to from Tudor Acid and Tudor Beats over the coming year?

Well I was working on tunes right up until I moved house and of course the studio was one of the firt things I set up! So there was about 3 weeks where I wasn’t able to write which made me all the more grateful when I was able to get back into it! I started the EP back in august/september when I was still in the old house although some of the melodic ideas stretch back a bit. As to the future, I have a remix EP of tracks from the coastguard advisory service album coming out in the next few months, more remixes from friends in the pipeline and have been talking to some other artists about releasing music on Tudor Beats. I also have a remix coming out soon that I did for Bristol alt-space rockers Ersatz and have started work on some new material!
