The Sprawl (Logos, Mumdance, Shapednoise) present their studio debut, the first release in a series on The Death of Rave. As their moniker suggests, The Sprawl is heavily influenced by novelist William Gibson's prescient sci-fi trilogy of the same name. "Drowning in Binary" plunges into recursive techno-chambers vacillating between white-hot distortion and arcing, weightless pads, before gliding across a tumultuous topography of chrome-burning flares and violent, body-quaking detonations in the morphing scape of "From Wetware to Software." With "Haptic Feedback" they grasp the quicksilver rush of classic Prototype and Reinforced before stranding the listener in the post-human headspace of "Personality Upload."
2015 ten-year anniversary reissue of Lindstrøm & Prins Thomas's genre-defining 2005 debut album. Three 180-gram LPs in special-edition gatefold sleeve with download code and bonus 7" of previously unreleased material (including a 2015 edit of "Feel AM" by Prins Thomas). The Norwegian duo of Hans-Peter Lindstrøm and Thomas M. Hermansen aka Prins Thomas joined forces in 2003, after mutual admiration for each other's productions -- Lindstrøm as muso-wizard and Prins Thomas as the nu-skool remix-champ. They share a background in band projects -- ranging from punk and gospel through country and heavy metal to folk and psychedelia -- and they also share a passion for collecting records. Besides running their respective labels (Lindstrøm's Feedelity and Prins Thomas's Full Pupp) and working on various solo projects, their main priority is their joint venture into the ever-expanding outer limits of futuristic disko and universal boogie. Featuring Italo, funk, and disco-influenced productions alongside the production genius that defined those lost halcyon releases of the post-disco/punk era circa '78-'84, Lindstrøm & Prins Thomas provide lush basslines, sublime melodies, and rolling rhythms that cascade like snowflakes being hit by harsh early-morning sunlight -- icy, but with a heart bursting with pure emotion. Throughout one can find the experimental energy of the continental space-disco of the '80s, which the pair still adore -- melodic, synth-heavy, and Moroder-esque, with arpeggiated basslines set to proto-house 4/4 grooves. Wrap yourself in the basslines and melodies of Lindstrøm & Prins Thomas's sublime Norse code.
EVENIFUDONTBELIEVE we are pleased to say it's true, the third album from Rustie is here. Arriving with little warning, this surprise new full-length offering is the sound of Rustie going back to basics and doing what he does best; stadium-sized euphoric tunez that will have you reaching for the lazers with a sugar rush smile. Following last year's Green Language LP where he enlisted various guest vocalists he departs that formula on EVENIF... by going on a solo tip for fifteen absolute belters. Highlights include recent fan favourite First Mythz which is a culmination of all he has produced before and a perfect pill-sized tab that sums up Rustie's sound to the T. A neon mixture of glowstick trance and happy hardcore trap shot all with a hazy 7 am glow, recent single Big Catzz finds itself a new home with its liquid synths perfectly sliding up against the rest of the album while tracks like Morning Starr 's glacial end-of-the-night glow are sure to be future classics. EVENIFUDONTBELIEVE is possibly the most realized vision of Rustie's sound yet and an utterly essential listen for anyone who has Glass Swords on rotation.
