The multi-media project Kraftwerk was started in Düsseldorf, Germany 1970 by Ralf Hütter and Florian Schneider. They set up their electronic Kling Klang Studio where they conceived and produced all Kraftwerk albums.
The five classic factory-era albums by new order reissued on vinyl - 'movement' (1981), 'power, corruption and lies' (1983), 'low-life' (1985), 'brotherhood' (1986) and 'technique' (1989). all feature newly re-mastered audio by frank arkwright and the original sleeves, labels and original inner bags, pressed on high-quality 180 gram vinyl.
Death in Vegas returns with Transmission, the sixth release from the project begun by Richard Fearless nearly two decades ago. This album forges new miles on the path Fearless carved with Satan’s Circus and Trans-Love Energies, and is born of his desire for an ever more raw, refined sound.
United over a love of Throbbing Gristle and Chris and Cosey, Fearless partners with artist and writer Sasha Grey, whose lyrics resonate across the soundscape of visceral techno and unsettling, discordant drones, weaving into a state of dreamlike euphoria. Field recordings of the constant drone of air traffic and incessant noise from the steel factory opposite Fearless’ Metal Box studio, as well as the Ballardian landscape in which it’s set, all exert their pull on the record, searching for light in the dark.
Pete wrote this short-story lyric while we were on a writing trip (drinking holiday) in the Forest Of Dean. Kids in the local pub always put Exterminate by Snap on the jukebox when we were there, which subtly influenced our writing on this. It was once described as sounding like “a row of fridges”. Features an AUTECHRE remix (Chemical Brothers)!
Sebastian has followed such an impressive path that itâs hard to believe that heâs only now releasing his long-awaited debut album. But the facts are clear: after several EPs (H.A.L, Smoking Kills, Ross Ross Ross, Motor), a record compiling his many remixes for Daft Punk, Kelis and the Kills among others (Sebastian Remixes) and a co production of the soundtrack for the film Steak with Sebastien Tellier and Mr Oizo, in which he also played one of the leading roles.
Ever elusive, he unveiled yet another side of his creativity in composing a philharmonic score for Notre Jour Viendra, Romain Gavrasâ first film. One of the creators, along with Justice, of the Ed Banger sound, he is without a doubt the labelâs most unusual figure. An iconoclast maverick he readily defies the rules to deliver a dirty and violent kind of techno that coughs and spits; music to his image: human and visceral. Super prolific and constantly effervescent this musician has managed, in the space of a few years, to redefine electronic music and is ready to astound everyone once again with TOTAL, a definitive and meteoric first album.
Protection was the second album by Bristol’s trip-hop overlords Massive Attack. The album was released in 1994. Vocalist Shara Nelson was replaced by Everything But The Girl’s Tracey Thorn. Tricky also made his last appearance with the the group going on to make his Maxinquaye album. It features the single Karmacoma.
Ross Birchard has made the leap from beatmaker to genuine super-producer far more spectacularly than most. Drake, Lil Wayne, Bjork, Antony and The Johnsons, R. Kelly, Big Sean, Pusha T, Pharrell, Mark Ronson, Miguel, John Legend, Future, Rick Ross - the list of credits spirals into the upper echelons of adventurous hip pop titans. Hudson Mohawke had been knighted a fully paid-up producer to the stars and then he did what other pop producers fail to do - he went and had a few hits of his own, starting in the summer of 2012 when he and Lunice teamed up for an unassuming drop under the name TNGHT (Warp x LuckyMe), continuing most recently with last year's Chimes EP when Apple chose the track for their new global campaign literally wearing a Hudson Mohawke sticker proudly on their product.
Now he is back with his first solo album in over five years and it's everything you've wanted and very little of what you've expected. 'Lantern' is a fusion album of soaring orchestration and widescreen club dynamics. It looks unwaveringly towards the future while embracing an evolving, timeless canon of pop and soul music; tracks feature Antony Hegarty, Miguel, Jhené Aiko, Irfane, Ruckazoid, and Devaeux. Says HudMo, " This album is everything I've been working towards. I wanted to make a classic - at least for me and my friends. I never wanted to be any genre. I wanted to be my own thing. Everything."
Filled with the hits that shot Lady Gaga to superstardom, her second studio album Born This Way is a staple gift for any Gaga fan. Featuring the critically acclaimed The Edge of Glory and collab with Queen guitarist Brian May. 2011, Interscope Records.
Beloved by perfect pop fans, this is Kylie’s most sought-after record. Signposting another left turn in Be With’s ‘baffling roster’ (Pitchfork), we proudly present this album’s first-ever vinyl reissue as a deluxe limited edition.
The album now stretches out over two pieces of 180g vinyl and is presented in a sumptuous gatefold jacket, allowing the iconic Rankin portraits room to breathe.
Along with Sheffield combo Hiem, Rayko is fast becoming Nang Records' most reliable artist. It would be fair to say that his latest album, No Stopping - his fourth in total and first since 2014 - is undoubtedly his strongest yet. Blessed with some fine guest vocals from Tania Haroshka and, perhaps more impressively, Crazy P's Danielle Moore, the set features much more "live instrumentation" - most notably bass and electric guitars - than the Spaniard's previous full-lengths. This adds an extra level of musical richness to the Madrid man's synthesizer-heavy tracks, which once again flit between hard-edged nu-disco, sun-kissed Balearica, revivalist electrofunk sweetness and the kind of cosmic disco that we would once have expected to hear from Daniele Baldelli and Marco Dionigi.
Nearly five years after we last heard from them, Megan James and Corin Roddick announce their third studio album as Purity Ring. Womb, with a loose thematic thread of a search for comfort and peace, finds the duo forging cutting-edge production techniques with their irrepressible knack for melody and harmony.
DJs, producers and unrivaled selectors, Danny McLewin and Tom Coveney aka Psychemagik have announced their album ‘I Feel How This Night Should Look’ will be released October 11th via their own imprint Psychemagik Recordings.

‘I Feel How This Night Should Look’ is an album with a phenomenal backstory. It spans back over a decade back to when Tom and Danny first met in 2008 and produced the ten tracks over an intensive two year period following the birth of Psychemagik.
