Stefan Goldmann - An Ardent Heart

Aug 13, 2018
macrom56An Ardent Heart is a focused techno mini album that brings forward Stefan Goldmann’s most dancefloor-centered material in a decade. The tracks push and pull relentlessly. Despite their linear appeal, there is an intricately balanced interplay between the heavy-handed kicks, the bouncy bass accents and the sizzling, yet clear-cut details whipped up by the rallying drums. The peculiar, seemingly “vocalised” mode of synthesis is maybe the most unifying sonic characteristic of the six tracks and one coda. Formant shaping, vowel filters and airstream perturbations let a wide

Aug 13, 2018
film010Focusing on low-slung IDM, Acid and atmospheric Electro with nods to Krautrock & Ambient sounds, Steve Hy-land’s ATTRAKTTA project gets an extended outing on the FILM label. Across eight beautifully produced tracks, Hyland - one of the founding members of AI Records and subsequently Concrete Plastic, explores vibrant synthesis and intricate drum programming, with the music arriving at a sweet spot between home listening material & club-ready workouts for more intelligent dance floors. Eschewing straightforward synth sequences in favour of blissed out - almost disharmonious

Midori Takada & Lafawndah - Le Renard Bleu

Aug 13, 2018
KENZ01It is said that every generation casts its mind back to a previous era in times of crisis; the resources that will allow us to decode the questions of our moment may lie in the myths of another era. Le Renard Bleu, the new musical and cinematic collaboration between Lafawndah and composer Midori Takada, and filmmakers Partel Oliva, takes a cross- generational echo as ground zero for recovering a crucial myth for uncertain times: the blue fox. As transmitted by Takada, the fox appears in both ancient Senegalese and Japanese folktales as the trickster archetype; belonging both to the heavens

Lori Scacco - Desire Loop

Jun 29, 2018

motdlp003“I think of myself as a naturalist no matter the palette,” says Lori Scacco, the New York multi-instrumentalist, composer, and electronic musician whose new album, ‘Desire Loop,’ is Mysteries of the Deep’s third full-length LP. Natural indeed: Scacco’s music effuses warmth, enveloping listeners like a gentle embrace. Her first album, ‘Circles,’ was released in the early aughts on Eastern Developments, an imprint co-founded by Guillermo Scott Herren, aka Prefuse 73. She spent much of the interim period composing music for performance, film, and

Francis Harris - Minutes Of Sleep

Jun 29, 2018
sat015lpxFrancis Harris is one of the most interesting figures on the american electronic music cicruit and beyond. His output has gone from tightly wound tech house cuts as Adultnapper in the early days, sublime deep house as Frank & Tony, intricate and expressive musical journeys as evident in his two solo-albums 'Leland' and 'Minutes Of Sleep', and ambient shoegaze with two Aris Kindt albums, co-produced with Gabe Hedrick. Most recently Harris branched out with a new label - Kingdoms - a home for his love of a more adventurous sound.
Up until now his most notable
