Gigs New Release
Rob-Clouth Tags : , , , , , ,

Having already put out releases on Tigerbeat and King Deluxe as Vaethx – Rob Clouth is back and releasing under his official title (to the taxman anyway).  Having interviewed Rob as Vaethx back in 2011, we always knew he was destined for great things, especially when we brought him to Cork for his one and only Irish show the same year (which he absolutely killed by the way). His latest E.P. Clockwork Atom is out on the 28 April on Berlin based record label, Berghain residency, and nomadic party-starters Leisure System and sees him up the level of glitch  once again turn your brain inside out. It’s too easy to talk

    Absolutely loving this at the moment! Guildford’s very own Subterra has just released his track Loro Piceno for free download. He’s a DJ and producer that’s been on the scene for a long time now, having made his name in Drum and Bass circles with releases on the likes of Sudden Def, Ruse Records and Noisia‘s Invisible imprint along with working as label manager for Zinc‘s Bingo Beats,  running his Rotation nights andholding a 5 year reidency at London’s Essence of Chi.

New Release
habits of hate Tags : , , , ,

Rob Booth has a penchant for champoning emerging talent – it’s been his trademark since starting his Electronic Explorations show and subsequent label, having already released a compilation and Defekt’s Transmuter E.P. For EE:03 he’s done the same again,this time releasing some balls out techno from Habits of Hate. The project is the pairing of two producers who are tearing up the scene at the moment – Happa and Manni Dee. The former is the 16 year old whizzkid who has been rising the ranks thanks to his well beyond his years production and DJ skills-having already played festivals such as Dimensions and Bestival. The same can be said for

Loops Haunt – Exits (Black Acre)

New Release
loops Tags : , , , ,

Loops Haunt is a producer we’ve loved for years and we even managed to  bag an interview with the man himself at the end of 2011, so any release he brings out gets us all excited. Exits is the latest offering from the Scottish producer, but this time he takes on the mission of a full album. The release is everything you’d expect – glorious soundscapes intricatly produced, taking influence from every genre imaginable which is pretty much Loops Haunt‘s signature. The album flows magnificently with the whole thing designed to be listened to as one continuous track and is most definitely the sound of a producer maturing. It could almost

Gigs Irish
diamond-version Tags : , , , , , , , ,

Two of Irelands finest clubnights, Electric Underground and !Kaboogie team up for a very special gig on May 24. Diamond Version, a collaboration between two of the most visionary producers in electronic music - Alva Noto and Byetone, land in The Button Factory in Dublin for their debut Irish performance and what could very well be one of the gigs of the year. Championed for their Raster Noton imprint and releases on Mute, either producer on their own would be a good draw but having both is rare enough and with a full A/V show, it’s a rare chance to catch them push the boundaries of what a sub is capable

Ingen And Boris Noiz – Ritual EP (Combat034)

New Release
ingen Tags : , , , , , , , ,

When the names Ingen and Boris Noiz appear together you know you’re in for something special. With both producers having a hefty back catalogue of hard and heavy brilliance, a pairing between them was never going to be 120 minimal and it most definitley ain’t. Rituals E.P. sees them take their collective styles and compliment each other perfectly – delivering it pure, raw and industrial. Combat Recordings is the perfect home for this as well. It’s a label that’s consistently stuck to it’s guns and never followed any trends whatsoever- just putting out one banger after another. Everything on Rituals is done with precision- from the synthesis to the kick drum. Oh that lovely kick
