Full Frequency alumni James A and Declan will join forces for a post-midnight set of house and techno classics to kick your Friday night into orbit.

Perth-based UK Producer Jon Murphy – aka Gravy Murphy – will perform his ambient experimental productions live. As dark as the night itself, Gravy Murphy’s sonic compositions are deep, complex and genre spanning, taking cues from UK bass music.

Phase will also see the debut live performance from local producer and Mei Saraswati Band moonlighter, Phil Stroud. Stroud’s unique club constructions blend deep percussive grooves and classic house production with elements of African polyrhythms and futurist jazz.

Methods of Movement DJs will provide the soulful house grooves and cosmic disco rhythms to keep you dancing well into the AM.

Bringing Phase into the dawn are trusted late night fixtures Polyrhythmic DJs. The Polyrhythmic crew has found their way onto many techno event line-ups of late, and they will no doubt satiate many an electronic music lover’s appetite with their effortless dance floor selections.

Aeriae presents Victris

Posted on 24th October 2014 by Brett Caporn (LRRecords) in electronica,music,Netlabels We Like,release promo - Tags: , ,

CA043 on Clan Analogue Recordings

Clan Analogue’s latest release, Aeriae‘s second album Victris, has been quietly making its mark as a modern IDM gem in the Australian electronic music soundscape.

 

A thirteen-page booklet by Wade Clarke (aka Aeriae) with notes on the inspiration and techniques behind each of Victris’s tracks, can be downloaded at aeriae.com/victris.pdf

 

Ambitious in texture, programming and melodic design, Victris explores the modern sonic parameters of electronica through the prism of deep historical insight into music, production and technology. With Bach-influenced melodic counterpoint, Spector-inspired mono mixes for discipline and impact, and the use of sonic detritus from the world of obsolete technology, colliding concepts of sound have been reconfigured for new expression in the modern digital age.

 

Aeriae is Sydney-based electronic composer and producer Wade Clarke. His grandfather was an engineer and almost-concert pianist, and Wade grew up playing the piano by ear. Aeriae’s novel aesthetic is informed as much by Warp figureheads like Autechre as by classical music and 80s electronic film scores like Tron and Escape From New York. Wade’s other involvements include writing, reviewing, Interactive Fiction, illustration and the Apple II.

 

Victris is available through MGM Distribution in CD and non-physical formats from usual sources. Witness Aeriae’s controllerism live in action at his Melbourne performance at Forgotten Worlds on Saturday November 15th.

…latest ‘rascal recommends’ from junodownload:

SCUBA - Phenix 3 (Front Cover)
PNX003DS 1
6 October, 2014

Review:
The Phenix trilogy of releases from Scuba ends here with a final four-track release, and looking back over the series as a whole you might think perhaps the Hotflush boss was using it as a platform to explore his next comprehensive move. The four tracks here work in a subtle narrative arc, commencing with the restrained minimalist sound design of “Silence” before Scuba eases up the tempo across the tracks that close the A-side and open the B-side. “Nineteen Eighty” is dub techno at its most weightless, whilst “Plateau” may prove to be the most melodically enriching Scuba production in some time. The appropriately titled “Fade” brings the curtain down on Phenix in somewhat contemplative mood, leaving the question of where Paul Rose goes next…


…and this ‘rascal recommends’ this little numba too! :)

RUSHMORE - Dance Show EP (Front Cover)
HOTSHIT 010
6 October, 2014
Review:

There’s nothing subtle about the work out London-based DJ and all-round man of mystery Rushmore. This third EP – his first for DJ Haus’ Hot Haus imprint – continues in a similar vein to his first two outings for Trax Couture. That means a tough, raw blend of ghetto-tech, revivalist acid house, footwork and sub-bothering bass-house. Choose between the jacking rhythms, thunderous kick drums and Armando-ish rave stabs of “Dance Show” and “Drop Top”, a cracking, in-your-face DJ tool built around footwork style handclaps, warped sub-bass and relentless drum machine cymbals. Neither track is particularly clever, but both are most certainly big.


….and another:

Always at the top of the pecking order for apocalyptic producer-MC combos, Kode 9 and The Spaceape are back in action once again and sounding as visceral as ever. “Chasing A Beast” suggests a change in stance for the pair, with Kode 9 working a cheekily swaying groove and Spaceape delivering a slightly less baritone, mildly Americanised flow. It’s still as dark as ever, but “Devil Is A Liar” too shows a lighter, more limber approach to the finished product, not so leaden in British urban dread. The minimalism reaches a peak on “Heart” with its slithering smatterings of trap and plush chords, while Spaceape rips the human condition to shreds, and the later into the EP you go the more adventurous the tracks become. It’s a fresh approach that will keep the fans on their toes while proving this is a pair that will never rest on their laurels.

,,,,raving freakout!!! >> ‘rascal recommended’

Freakquency by Zebbler Encanti Experience

As masters of the full sensory psychedelic experience, audio-visual group Zebbler Encanti Experience return to Gravitas Recordings with their newest offering, Freakquency. Coining a musical style they refer to as “psytrap”, ZEE shows off their aural dynamism by combining elements from dubstep, psytrance, trap, and other bass music styles into five tenaciously coherent songs. Sound design takes center stage in their creations, transporting the listener into an ever expanding kaleidoscopic world populated by entities that are anything but monochrome. Each track on the EP will also be given it’s very own visual treatment, creating an ocular story that challenges popular subjective conceptions of beauty and desolation. Due July 15th, the album will be available through Gravitas as an expected pay-what-you-want download, opening the doors for every listener to ride this Freakquency.

I figured” Lets just set up the gear and make some noise!! its the last quarter of 2012!! I don’t need the paint job and the skirting boards done to make good music, they can wait. I do plan to install an adjustable (use when needed) vocal booth soon…

So its time to get into making and releasing some music..from the ‘littlerascal’, other artists on LRRecords and more! …stay tuned.
