Mr Oizo Lambs Anger Mr Oizo turns his back on that yellow muppet. On 'Lambs Anger' he turns out one of the best full lengths Ed Banger Records have relesed. Well thought out glitchy Electro with those mutated basslines that he is so famed for. The cover states allot and the sound is a move forward not just personally but for the genre as a whole. Ed Banger grows up it seems. 1. Hun 2. Pourriture 2 3. Z 4. Cut Dick 5. Two Takes It feat. Carmen Castro 6. Rank 7. Bruce Willis Is Dead 8. Jo 9. Positif 10. Lambs Anger 11. Erreur Jean Feat.

Squarepusher Be Up A Hello After a 5 year hiatus that has seen him delve into a range of diverse musical projects, Squarepusher will return with a long awaited album Be Up A Hello, out on the 31st of January. Fans can enjoy a taster as the double-A side 12” Vortrack will be released on the 6th of December, featuring Squarepusher's Fracture Remix which already caused a stir when it was dropped into his brain-melting breakbeat and jungle set for Warp's 30th anniversary NTS takeover in June. With this new album, Tom Jenkinson (Squarepusher) has returned to using a bewildering array of vintage analogue and digital hardware, the same equipment that first helped him develop his sound in the early '90s. Something of a 180 degree turn, these synths, effects units and even a Commodore Vic20 are in complete contrast to the tools he used to create 2015’s Damogen Furies - cutting edge software that Tom developed over the course of 15 years. The result is Be Up A Hello, an album that is celebratory with rinsing breakbeat tracks such as Nervelevers and Terminal Slam - classic floor fillers - as well pieces loaded with visceral atmosphere and melody in Squarepusher’s inimitable style. Darker moments such as Vortrack and Mekrev Bass illustrate Tom's continuing fascination with finely balanced psychological overload. As such, Be Up A Hello gives a nod to the mayhem, joyousness and abandon of the DIY Essex rave scene that was a strong determinant in Tom's work. Warp Records CD | LP
Squarepusher Lamental EP The new EP from Squarepusher, following on from their 2020 album Be Up A Hello. Shining a light on the more melodic aspects of ‘Be Up A Hello’, the ‘Lamental’ EP reveals a contemplative side to the music Tom has been making over the last few years. The spacey, squelchy synth techno of ‘The Paris Track’ is a new accelerated interpretation of ‘Detroit People Mover’ which is taken from the album, where it offers a cinematic contrast to the high-octane rave rush of the first four tracks. Originally composed as a response to the EU referendum in 2016, Tom made the score and recorded stems of his beautifully plaintive, wave-like slow roller ‘MIDI Sans Frontières’ available to all, encouraging remixers to participate as a form of “internationalist collaboration with sound makers, irrespective of what kind of music they make, where they live, their background or their age. 12"

Squarepusher Music For Robots CD in now, 12" expected 12th May Music written by Squarepusher and perfromed by robots! Could this be any better!?A five track EP composed by Squarepusher and performed by the three robots that comprise the Z-machines. In 2013, a team of Japanese roboticists were assembled with the challenge of creating a music-performing system that was beyond the capabilities of the most advanced musicians - Z-machines were the result. The roboticist’s music producer, Kenjiro Matsuo, and his team, invited a number of Japanese composers as well as Squarepusher to develop music specifically for the project. Warp Records 12" | CD

Mr Oizo The Church New album from the legendary French producer Mr Oizo Harking back to the certified classic ‘Analog Worms Attack’ (1999), ‘The Church’ finds Mr. Oizo in supreme form, delivering a suite of zealous twisted funk - from the skullrattling flip-flop of ‘Bear Biscuit’ to scowl-inducing four-to-the-floor (‘Machyne’, ‘Destop’, ‘Ham’). Simultaneously daft, erudite and truly original. Brainfeeder CD | LP
