Aupheus Megalith The new full length album from UK-based electronic/hip-hop beatsmith AUPHEUS, combining sweeping sci-fi soundtrack sounds with raw hip-hop and featuring some special Strange Famous friends, who come along for the ride! Megalith is a compelling collision of disparate influences and technologies melded to form an unconventional sonic tapestry: “The album was heavily inspired by my favourite science fiction films of the 1980s and early 1990s and their soundtracks, along with the hip hop that I grew up listening to, and the writing of Philip K. Dick,” says Aupheus. It’s an ambitious mix of ambient sounds and doom-bap grit. “I used a range of digital and analog gear to achieve the sound I wanted, including vintage samplers, running things onto tape, using the turntables and various musical instruments in conventional and unconventional ways.” Megalith exists in the exciting overlap between the worlds of beat-making, composing, and sound design; a fusion of Electronic Sci-Fi and golden-era Hip Hop.

Sunset Graves The Inevitable End Sunset Graves on ‘The Inevitable End’: “I had this thought: would it be possible to create an album using a really small palette of sound? I don’t choose when to write a record, it chooses me. And when I felt this one coming on, I knew that it needed to be nothing like any of my previous work. Things had changed, and my music needed to reflect that. So I started to layout my tools: synths, drums, samples and field recordings. The only rule was that I would use these, and only these, but I could process and add effects to them in any way I chose. I wanted to find detail by smashing drum elements into grains and coercing them back into shapes and patterns. I wanted to create texture by applying filters and stacks of EQ and reverb to synths. I wanted to give the album depth and life by recording sounds of the environment around me. The first drums you hear on ‘Lovr’ are an iPhone recording of me tapping the steel girder of a railway bridge. The road that never sleeps outside my home is the bed on which ‘Solace’ lies. By processing, stretching, crushing and pushing, finding elements and artifacts and using them as new starting points, an eco system of sound began to form, and the album exists within that. However, I also wanted the album to have a heart and resonate emotionally. And I wanted it to sound huge.” Spun Out Of Control

Andrew Weatherall Blue Bullet EP Almost exactly a year after his first EP on Byrd Out (the Kiyadub EP), the legendary Andrew Weatherall returns with new material for a second release. Andrew invited a mate round to his studio to try out a Les Paul his friend was looking to buy. As it turns out, his mate was Ride's (and Oasis') guitarist Andy Bell. Anyway, Andrew suggested he test the guitar out over a track he was working on, and ‘Making Friends With The Invader’ is the resulting track, which Andrew paired with the EP’s title track ‘Blue Bullet’. Both tracks plough the trippy, cosmic dub furrow, and come in at a weighty 8 and 9 minutes plus. 1000 vinyl only. Grab them while you can! Mastered by Noel Summerville. Artwork by G.S-L Studio Byrd Out 12"
Brian Eno Music For Installations Music For Installations’ is a collection of new, rare and previously unreleased music, all of which was recorded by Brian Eno for use in his installations covering the period from 1986 until the present (and beyond). Over this time, he has emerged as the leading exponent of “generative” music worldwide and is recognised as one of the foremost audio-visual installation artists of his time. “If you think of music as a moving, changing form, and painting as a still form, what I’m trying to do is make very still music and paintings that move. I’m trying to find in both of those forms, the space in between the traditional concept of music and the traditional concept of painting.” - Brian Eno. 6 CD SUPER DELUXE EDITION Designed by Brian and long-time collaborator Nick Robertson, this beautifully presented, 6CD, limited, numbered super deluxe box set comes with a 64-page Plexiglass cover book featuring rare and unseen exhibition photographs and a new essay written by Eno. -The Limited Edition & Numbered Super Deluxe Edition 6 CD version of ‘Music For Installations’ is a uniquely crafted bespoke work of art in itself. - Housed in a rigid 12 x 10 box - 6CDs of music from Brian’s Installations from 1986 to 2017 and beyond. - 50% of the music is previously unreleased and the rest has only ever had very limited direct to consumer release. - 64 Page Plexiglas bound book containing a brand new essay by Eno plus rare and previously unseen photographs from his various exhibitions from 1986 to the present. - Box Set designed with long-time collaborator Nick Robertson. - Mastering by Matt Colton at Alchemy Mastering, London + ‘Making Space’ mastered by Kevin Metcalfe at Soundmasters. - Contains a Download Card.
