A return to significantly darker pastures can be found on the figurative flip where crunchy breakbeats, monolithic, dystopian chords and drill bit synth pulses hide the relatively modest tempo of "Dyslogy". The Testpressing series is described by Modern Love as an outlet for Demdike Stare's most "untamed" creations, and both tracks on this debut release set the tone accordingly.
There have been plenty of words spilled about the electronic music and noise music spheres drawing ever closer lately, but the appropriately titled "Collision" seems to capture these two forces in perfect unison as vintage jungle breaks are mangled cacophonously with Pansonic-esque harsh white noise.
The second Testpressing continues in this manner; for example "Grows Without Bound" combines what sounds like a supercharged organ with rumbling sub bass and scratchy, stumbling beats in the distance. But it's "Primitive Equation" that offers the standout track. Starting out with the demonic and guttural body basher "Curzon" where you know right away that this album will be one wild ride.
Elsewhere, "Sourcer" tackles a mangled form of late '90s techstep while the beautiful closer "Overstaying" is a glorious exercise in hypnotism that sits somewhere between minimal techno and deconstructed electro.
Housebound Demigod. This is his first album under the GH moniker, but already we can hear that his thoughts neatly shaped into one single-minded vision of noise and industrial music. For much of Housebound Demigod, the producer only uses beats to add to his abstract shapes; freeform sounds that manage to create enough movement with the simple and minimalistic components that they're constrained to.
Drones and distortions sound full of life and direction, with little attention devoted to making them as full a possible, and instead on how to make them sound as interesting as possible.
A wonderfully executed piece of experimentalism. Jack Dice. Block Motel. Low Jack. Lighthouse Stories. Given this impressive record, it's unsurprising that Modern Love has snapped up Lighthouse Stories, his third full-length. Interestingly, it sees him move away from the dystopian, post-apocalyptic techno sound he's become famous for, instead delivering a set that mirrors the dark-and-light, slow-and-fast hybrid frequently showcased on Black Zone Myth Chant releases. Like that project, the music on Lighthouse Stories is damn near impossible to pigeonhole, sitting somewhere between uncomfortable intensity and exotic beauty.
Lucy Railton. Paradise Mary Jane Leach. Faint Hearted. His debut solo album, entitled Faint Hearted - released simply under his first name, Miles - looks to be an encapsulation of his wide ranging tastes as a DJ and producer, and is described by the label as "an exposition of Miles' love of electronic music in all its shapes, harnessing his fidgety production style into one expansive, restless set of tracks".
A bracing encapsulation of one the UK's most interesting electronic artists. Despite the fact Album) he has reverted to his first name, there is no mistaking the UK producer's production style. Leaning more towards Demdike Stare than his other dance floor material Facets teems with life, each track a veritable treasure trove of sounds, ideas and moods.
Of course given that it draws inspiration from and in some place directly invokes the spirit of Whittaker and Canty's witch-loving Demdike project, it is no surprise that the prevailing mood is dark, eerie and even sometimes downright menacing. Like the Demdike releases, "Lustre" suggests that the mood may be about to change and offers some concessions towards a lighter mood, as a warm bass and more plaintive chords echo and ebb across its spacious arrangement.
It's followed by "Primer", where the kind of unquantized tribal drums that underscored Whittaker and partner Canty's ode to the hashassins, "Hashshashin Chant", roll in like thunder. Finally, "On the Fly" sees Whittaker focus on shifting tonal frequencies, underpinned by a rhtyhm that starts at a dead pace and speeds up to infinity. It's a fittingly offbeat finale in this latest compelling release from one of the UK's great techno eccentrics.
Drop The Vowels. Releasing a string of 12? Now they return with Drop the Vowels, which makes complete sense given underground music's renewed fascination with all things revolving around the hardcore continuum. Just as wide ranging as previous material, with the LP covering the kind of tectonic mood pieces and wiry noise techno as Stott and Whittaker's recent solo material whilst delivering some of the most straight-up dancefloor material Modern Love has put out in years.
Without doubt one of the albums of the year. Philippe Hallais. An American Hero. While this is technically a debut under his real name, we've already gotten a taste of what the talented producer can offer beyond the dancefloor. This album, An American Hero, comes through on Andy Stott's sublime Modern Love and we feel that there couldn't be a better match on our charts this week. Although the large part of these tunes would scare most normal people off any dance piste, there is something unmistakably club-minded about it; the choice of sonics and atmospherics is most certainly on the experimental side of the spectrum, but there is a noticeable movement and pulse-like beat at its foundations.
For instance, the likes of "Everything Good " or "Angela Square " burst out of the speakers with a mind-bending vortex of sounds that somehow find their own kinetic energy and pull you in to a subtle groove. Compared to most left field or ambient albums out there, Hallais has made sure to keep you locked and excited for the whole damn thing. Rainer Veil. New Brutalism.
At every turn the production is magnificent on this EP, dense and highly detailed but beautifully rendered to give the most evocative kind of end result. We Stay Together. Opening with Mephistos Lament - Demdike Stare - Elemental (CD beatless "Submission", a Fennesz style wash of recorded waves subjected to crushing compression, he moves into the bpm territory of "Posers" which concentrates on a roughly treated, barely there vocal sample, and "Bad Wires", which slowly disorientates the listener with its sludgy bass loop and fizzing atmosphere.
Meanwhile "We Stay Together" opts for a cleaner atmosphere with demonic undertones, whilst "Cherry Eye" offers the faintest sceptre of melody in a cavernous backdrop. Finally "Cracked" hypnotises with its metallic textures and undercurrent of acid which gurgles beneath. For anyone who considers themselves even remotely adventurous in their techno tastes, We Stay Together is essential. Luxury Problems. The album will contain eight tracks recorded in the last 12 months, with five of the songs featuring vocals from his old piano teacher who Stott hadn't seen since he was a teenager inwith the opening track "Numb" seeing her looped and layered vocals exuding a cinematic quality.
The paranoid, dense, slow-moving qualities that Stott has made his signature remain, but they've been toyed with and manipulated, and the vocal elements feel like a calculated gamble - one that has truly paid off. Highly recommended. Passed Me By. Although strictly a double EP rather than an album, there's enough here to fill the void left since the last Stott long player, Merciless. Stott opens with the disturbed paranoia of "Signature" and the brilliant "New Ground", which utilises a drowned-out vocal snippet that immediately brings to mind the work of Actress.
The grumbling dub of "North To South" contrasts neatly with "Intermittent", in which rasping drum hits form the rhythmic pulse, allowing another ethereal vocal to float over the top.
The second half of the release takes on an even darker hue; with the raw drum hits of "Dark Details", terrifying drone of "Execution" and ghostly atmospherics of the title track rounding off this most stunning release. Faith In Strangers. Faith In Strangers, that album's belated follow-up, is similarly minded. Peppered with audible references to his many inspirations - field recordings, found sounds, dub techno, IDM, ambient, post-dubstep and trip-hop, in particular - it's a set that quietly drifts between sludgy dreaminess and pin-sharp late night horror.
As such, it's an inspired set, with Stott's use of odd instrumentation and the evocative vocals of Alison Skidmore significantly enhancing the experience. Night Jewel. Unknown Exception. The Stranger. Watching Dead Empires In Decay.
Built around strange samples, field recordings and curious use of clattering live percussion see the blacksmith ambient jazz of "We Scarcely See Sunlight"Watching Dead Empires in Decay is like the unofficial soundtrack to Britain's continued decline. Shard of Hate causes your Basic Attacks Mephistos Lament - Demdike Stare - Elemental (CD trigger Lord of Hatred and splash to enemy Heroes nearby the initial target. This is a great talent for both waveclearing and teamfighting. In teamfights Shard of Hate will allowing you to further reduce Mephisto's basic ability cooldowns and will greatly increase the damage you can dish out during a Shade.
Lightning Reaction is quite strong when it works. The issue with it is the difficulty of getting it to work when and where you need it to. Skull Missile is a slow moving projectile that is launched from the casting location after a relatively long delay. A lot can change from the time you cast it, to the time it arrives were you wanted it to go.
It may be helpful to practice with this Talent in Try Mode, where you can disable cooldowns and get a feel for it more quickly.
Static Field can generate huge bursts of damage, especially when multiple enemy Heroes are hit by its effect. When picking Static Field, it is important to focus on hitting multiple targets with your Nova to trigger Static Field. Animosity is an interesting way to increase Lightning Nova's damage. Animosity falls just short of Static Field, primarily because it does not damage enemies inside of Lightning Nova. If Consume Souls initial cast kills a Hero it will cast 1 additional time.
Durance of Hate Silences enemies for 3 seconds after its Root expires. Activate to swap locations with Shade of Mephisto and refresh its duration. Passive: Shade of Mephisto benefits from all of Mephisto's level 7 Talents. Consumed by Hatred turns Consume Souls into a global execute that repeats if a Hero is killed by the initial blast. When picking this talent, it is very important to time your Consume Soul so that you kill an enemy hero with it, allowing you to get a free Consume Souls in.
Unspeakable Horror is an extremely powerful upgrade for Durance of Hate, but this value can be lost if Durance of Hate does Album) hit an enemy Hero.
Mimic makes it possible to cast two Lightning Novas at the same time. Mimic is very powerful when combined with Static Barrier and Static Field. This would be the most recommended talent due to the damage increase Mimic will give you.
Shade Lord is the best survivability Talent for Mephisto, as it turns Shade of Mephisto into a proper escape. In addition, it opens up many plays that are not otherwise possible.
