Troy Gunner explores the outer edges of techno and bass music with his finely crafted Fresh Kicks delivery.
As with so many from the conveyor belt of talent that is Bristol – where the fast-rising selector was born – Gunner's influences and interests range far and wide, but feature overarching themes of dub and low-end-heavy genres.
Jonas Kopp returns to Berlin's Tresor imprint, next month, with a new album of futuristic techno experiments, titled 'Photon Belt'.
The eponymous 'Photon Belt' is "a band of intense light energy into which our star and its planets moves into [once every 11,000 years] for a duration of about 2,000 years," the press release informs us. "As part of the Pledian star group, our sun circles around the star named Alcyon, itself located at all times in the photon belt. Other stars, including ours, move in and out of it for varying periods of time, depending on their orbit."
SNTS joins the Horo roster with a four-tracker of brooding techno and experimental ambient titled, 'Across Another Dimension'.
Since debuting in 2012, the mysterious, masked producer has been making a name for himself via EPs for the likes of Edit Select, Horizontal Ground and his own, self-titled imprint.
His second album 'Losing Sight' also dropped last year on Sacred Ground, following 2015's 'The Rustling Of The Leaves' for the SNTS label.
The KLF — otherwise known as The Justified Ancients Of Mu Mu — have officially confirmed they will return this year following a 23-year hiatus.
Following a mysterious video earlier this week, which sparked rumours of the anarchistic outfit's comeback — a photo of a poster announcing the duo will release new music on 23rd August 2017 has been shared.
The news was revealed by Eastfolk Chronicle editor, Cally Callomon, who just happens to be KLF-member Bill Drummond's manager, and apparently found it whilst rambling about Hackney.
The KLF have shared a new video which suggests the anarchic duo may return at some point this year.
Built from chopped up pop culture imagery, the 46-minute clip was first shown in 2015 at a special KLF event in Bristol.
Titled, KLF 01 01 2017 WTF FOUND VHS, the film is accompanied by a cryptic message, referencing various points in the outfit's history, including their infamous 1994 stunt, in which they burnt £1 million.
Samurai Horo, the experimental offshoot of Presha's Samurai Music, relaunches next month with new releases from regulars ASC and Ancestral Voices.
Having established itself as worlds apart from the drum & bass of its parent label through a catalogue of highly eclectic ambient, grey area, electronica and more, Horo will drop the 'Samurai' part of its name, becoming a fully fledged label in its own right.
Shelter Point are a Nottingham based duo specializing in soulful, experimental, vocal based electronic music. Zane Lowe, Annie Mac, and Huw Stephens are already fans, and so are we!
The mix moves from experimental to some more contemporary techno vibes and the track selection is simply superb. Meditative yet full of energy, this mix is an expertly sculpted journey through the mind and we love it.
