Grand Mal x – Speed Of Light

The rocket travelled hastily through the midnight sky. Racing towards it's destination it must ensure that it was not traced by opposition radar, who knew that a mere tin can could maintain such responsibility? Faster than the speed of light, the frame of the shell glimmered under the glow of the starlight from up above. Soon to cause havoc and prosperity for nations divided by sea, it must not miss. 

Kess Kill is the brainchild of Rivet, to date it has released an array of off centre post punk and electronics. However, now the label draws upon the musical intuition of Swedish duo Grand Mal x. Listen to "Speed Of Light" below:

400PPM – 8.069

The code was statistically problematic and prone to dangerous manipulation. As he toyed with the whirring machine he padded the buttons relentlessly: eight, zero, six, nine. He took a deep breath and tried once more, eight, zero, six, nine. He was beginning to lose his patience with the jilted machinery and soon he may well very have to do the unthinkable. Vandalism was not in his nature but a violent rage and a ticking clock had the capacity to change everything. 

400PPM is the moniker of the widely acclaimed, New York based producer, Shawn O'Sullivan. His new album on Avian sees him draw upon machine led inspiration. Listen to "8.069" below:

Munro – Environments Ten

The climate within the glasshouse was murky and warm. The heat poured prominently through the long windows as the plants soared elegantly into the sunshine up above. On level ten, an environment was blossoming, one left untouched by man and machine. In this place nature would thrive and flourish for generations to come as the chimes echoed in the hollow space. 

Munro is set to release a new two track EP on XVI Records. Two truly wicked tracks packed with summer enthusiasm and vibes a plenty. Listen to "Environments Ten" below:

Komon & Will Saul – Harmonise (Juju & Jordash Remix)

The keys melodically chimed in the empty church hall. In the corner of the suty room was a man composing a perfect harmony upon a delicate piano. He plucked and prodded the instrument so intricately it were as if he were a part of the very notes himself. The light hung low outside as he closed the old wooden doors behind him and walked into the open courtyard. People were gathered by coffee shops and bars, merrily passing the time as the day fell to a close. 

Komon & Will Saul collaborate on the much loved Aus Music record label, owned by Saul himself. The pair also bring in the big guns on remix duties with Nick Hoppner and Juju & Jordash stepping up. Listen to the Juju & Jordash remix of "Harmonise" below:

Curses – Canini (Dreems Club Remix)

The temple was a beautiful emporium of earthly delight and wonder. The marble floor shone and glimmered, his heels clicked to and fro as he walked proudly along the eerie corridors. Great pictures hung ominously on the walls showcasing battles of days gone by, distant memories and bleak momentos. This was a palace to some, a prison to others, yet ultimately it was home. He had little choice but to observe the outside world from a position of superiority. He was Prince Canini. 

Throne of Blood records return following the recent release of their Moon Rock compilation with a new EP from Curses. Listen to a remix of "Canini" by Dreems below:

Blood Sport – Melts Ino

Besides championing tunes that keep delicious men warm during nuclear winters, Sheffield’s foremost agents of ‘aggro-beat’ Blood Sport have been keeping busy of late. As well as a restless run of dates, including release parties with Spectres and group A as well as a one-off drone performance with Giant Swan for Fat Out Festival, the trio have been devising unique live collaborations based around the modular synthesizers of the Moog Sound Lab. The third instalment in a series of gigs utilizing the iconic hardware and temperamental synthesis associated with Robert Moog’s creations, their latest work with the lab saw a night of exclusive live sets conceived by themselves along with Fay Milton and Ayse Hassan of Savages and Martin Dubka of Circle Sky.

A previous edition of these collaborative nights has now been picked up for release by Bristol’s Howling Owl Records. Taken from last year’s two-night residency at Café Oto, where the group performed with Tony Allen and Jimi Tenor, the record encapsulates all the mercurial energy and sinuous currents of a Blood Sport live set. 

Here we premiere the official video for ‘Melts Into’, the second track from the ‘Live At Café Oto’ LP. Live coded by artist Antonio Roberts, it’s an exhilarating vision of corrupted animation halfway between rave lysergia and glitch art, and represents a delirious extract of a live-coded visual accompaniment to the entire 'Live at Café Oto' LP which will be streaming in the near future. Antonio Roberts has subsequently recruited them to enmesh with Sheffield-based live coder Heavy Lifting for another new collaboration as part of the Algorave programme at this year's Supersonic Festival. The track itself is hyper, kinetic, circulatory, situated somewhere between Konono Nº1 and Nisennenmondai but invested with a force that’s all their own. Enjoy.
