The residencies for Sheffield's Hope Works club and No Bounds festival have been announced.
Planet Mu will celebrate its 25th anniversary this year with a new compilation.
‘PlanetMµ25’ will be released on 4th December, and features 15 tracks that encapsulate the adventurous, forward-thinking sounds the label has championed since its inception in 1995.
There are over 30 churches in Braga, a small historic city in northwest Portugal. Walking through its cobbled streets, their ringing bells are often heard from all angles, as if they’re talking, or singing, to one another. It makes for an appropriate backdrop for Semibreve, a festival that, in its ninth year, continues to set itself apart with adventurous programming, and a focus on rich, enveloping sounds.
Planet Mu is preparing to release a new album from Speaker Music, AKA DeForrest Brown Jr., a name many will recognise from his theories, editorial writings, visual artwork and releases for the likes of PTP, alongside Kepla, and Foraging (with The Actual School).
'of desire, longing' takes the form of a "time-based release", with one long composition spanning both sides of the vinyl entirely. According to the release information, it's an attempt to "work against the quick turnover rate of the track-based streaming economy". The record will arrive on 6th December.
Planet Mu has announced the debut album from DJ Mag Best of British Breakthrough Producer nominee Rian Treanor, ‘ATAXIA', which will land on 15th March.
The title translates as 'the loss of full control of bodily movements' in non-neurological terms. Whether the record should come with a warning isn't clear, but either way we've been told to expect shades of experimental industrial, synth-pop, speed garage and plenty more left-of-the-middle computer sounds when it arrives.
