Emptyset : Demiurge Variations

Forget record of the week, this release is for us record of the month. Since we first heard the Roly Porter rework of Function as the closer to the Emptyset Boiler Room mix four months ago we have been eagerly awaiting for this to drop on vinyl. The stunning Porter mix is backed with a hauntingly dark rework by Subtext label mate Paul Jebanasam.

Om Unit : Aeolian EP

Om Unit's third EP for Civil Music. Following on from EPs ‘Transport’ and ‘The Timps’, 'Aeolian' showcases five emotive tracks that rouse the senses and together form a cinematic and journeying soundtrack. Focused predominantly, but not exclusively, around the 85/170BPM the unique qualities of ‘Aeolian’ are echoed with the choice of remixers; revered producers Reso and Sweatson Klank both contribute revisions to the package.

On 'Ulysses' a deep melodic synthscape combines with elements of liquid, footwork and trap. Reso's remix adds constantly evolving jungle drum programming while Sweatson Klank adds a laidback swagger creating a piece of warm downtempo soul. 'Dark Sunrise' features the elegant voice of Tamara Blessa broadcasting a message for change. 'Fumes' merges half time bump, warm bass and head-nodding throbs. 'Lightworkers Call' features Kromestar, it's got 90's west coast hip-hop feel but is driven by the snapping snare and a wall of square wave bass. 'Slowfast Matrix' sits somewhere between juke, jungle and liquid as it balances stormy synths and layered rhythms before the second drop deletes the sped-up drums and favours a half-time alternative.

Om Unit is one of the most exciting artists to emerge in recent times, and packed with unique combinations of style, and diverse demonstrations of its makers adaptability, Aeolian shows us why. Just as the 'Aeolian processes' shape the surface of the Earth, Om Unit is helping to shape music’s electronic landscape.

Aeolian features artwork from Kutmah and is released 30th July on Civil Music

John Macedo : Silt (C20)

JOHN MACEDO is a polymath sound alchemist from London. Having previously collaborated / performed with / remixed the likes of Phil Julian, Trencher and Chris Tosic, Mr MACEDO briefly descends to the Beartown gutter to bestow two deranged compositions upon our bewildered furry ears.

SILT is loud, abrasive, textured and depthless. Composed with and performed on a custom-built modular analogue system, MACEDO's label debut guides the listener into the inhospitable wilds of a glitching drone hinterland. Flowing and churning over the course of 10 enlightening minutes, side A shows an experienced disaster-naut at the peak of his powers, casting spells and taking metaphorical lawnmowers apart in equal measures.

Flip the biscuit to reveal harsher, more opaque tonal structures. Entrancing, meditative and densely layered, side B is a cathartic realisation of the inherent blissful reality that comes from "making a right proper racket and that"

Edition of 30 with textured paper insert, powder blue on-tape stickers and deceptively peaceful pea-green tapes.

Available now at Beartown Records
