Other recordings by this artist

Darkstar - North
After a steady trickle of great singles, Darkstar unfurl their debut long-player. They've streamlined their sound into a haunted, melancholy set of songs that share ground with the outer edges of dubstep, synth pop and cold wave. The result is an absolutely prime piece of contemporary electronica. Highly recommended.

Mark Pritchard - Under The Sun
'Under The Sun’, Mark Pritchard’s first solo album in five years, is designed to be listened to in one sitting; the unique atmosphere of the album has led from Pritchard’s exploration of the timeless production and mixing techniques of the 1960s and 70s. Having previously produced - both collaboratively and as an individual - under various pseudonyms (Global Communication, Africa Hitech, Harmonic 313, Harmonic 33, to name a few), he has now begun to release all music under his own name. The record draws influences from ambient, psych and folk and, with help from vocalists such as Thom Yorke, Linda Perhacs, Bibio and Beans (ex- Antipop Consortium), creates a sort of sonic utopian landscape, complemented completely by the artwork of Jonathan Zawada. For fans of Atoms For Peace, Brian Eno, Fennesz, Jane Weaver, Ryuichi Sakamoto, Jon Hassell.

Oneohtrix Point Never - R Plus Seven
Under the moniker Oneohtrix Point Never, Daniel Lopatin's debut on Warp contains many familiarities for listeners who have followed the acclaimed electronic music composer’s development over the last 5 years, however the new record is a major departure from previous work. Lopatin’s experimental inclinations lurk behind the scenes - in the concepts and procedures he adopts to create the tracks. 'R Plus Seven' is disruptive and hypnotic in equal measure, and the fun of it lies in trusting Lopatin as he guides you past - and often through - a succession of walls and mirrors.

Daniel Lopatin’s second album on Warp maintains the stunning production for which he has gained a reputation over the past few years, whilst at the same time exploring a whole new level of weird. Lopatin describes ‘Garden Of Delete’ as a “selfportrait.” Musically the album contains a plethora of ideas spliced together seamlessly: great rushes of death metal and distorted R&B pop vocals, for example, all woven together with typically OPN broken chord synths and sleek sound design. The album sees a continuation of the incredible cinematic sound for which composer / producer Daniel Lopatin has gained a reputation during his career. Oneohtrix Point Never’s consistently preeminent and original output is gradually taking him into the position of an elite electronic producer. Through ‘Garden Of Delete’ Lopatin finds new inspiration in Ezra, an apparent eternally teen-aged grunge-loving alien figure and sort of new mascot for the record.

Brian Eno - The Ship
Originally conceived from experiments with three dimensional recording techniques and formed in two interconnected parts, ‘The Ship’ brings together beautiful songs, minimalist ambience, physical electronics omniscient narratives and technical innovation into a single, cinematic suite. The result is the very best from Eno, a record without parallel in his catalogue. Brian Eno describes the music on the record in his own words: “On a musical level, I wanted to make a record of songs that didn’t rely on the normal underpinnings of rhythmic structure and chord progressions but which allowed voices to exist in their own space and time, like events in a landscape. I wanted to place sonic events in a free, open space. “One of the starting points was my fascination with the First World War, that extraordinary trans-cultural madness that arose out of a clash of hubris between empires. It followed immediately after the sinking of the Titanic, which to me is its analogue. The Titanic was the Unsinkable Ship, the apex of human technical power, set to be Man’s greatest triumph over nature.”

Brian Eno - Reflection
Brian says... Reflection is the latest work in a long series. It started (as far as record releases are concerned) with Discreet Music in 1975 ( - or did it start with the first Fripp and Eno album in 1973? Or did it start with the first original piece of music I ever made, at Ipswich Art School in 1965 - recordings of a metal lampshade slowed down to half and quarter speed, all overlaid?) Anyway, it’s the music that I later called ‘Ambient’. I don’t think I understand what that term stands for anymore - it seems to have swollen to accommodate some quite unexpected bedfellows - but I still use it to distinguish it from pieces of music that have fixed duration and rhythmically connected, locked together elements. The pedigree of this piece includes Thursday Afternoon, Neroli (whose subtitle is Thinking Music IV) and LUX. I’ve made a lot of thinking music, but most of it I’ve kept for myself. Now I notice that people are using some of those earlier records in the way that I use them - as provocative spaces for thinking - so I feel more inclined to make them public. Pieces like this have another name: they’re GENERATIVE. By that I mean they make themselves. My job as a composer is to set in place a group of sounds and phrases, and then some rules which decide what happens to them. I then set the whole system playing and see what it does, adjusting the sounds and the phrases and the rules until I get something I’m happy with. Because those rules are probabilistic ( - often taking the form ‘perform operation x, y percent of the time’) the piece unfolds differently every time it is activated. What you have here is a recording of one of those unfoldings. Reflection is so called because I find it makes me think back. It makes me think things over. It seems to create a psychological space that encourages internal conversation. And external ones actually - people seem to enjoy it as the background to their conversations. When I make a piece like this most of my time is spent listening to it for long periods - sometimes several whole days - observing what it does to different situations, seeing how it makes me feel. I make my observations and then tweak the rules. Because everything in the pieces is probabilistic and because the probabilities pile up it can take a very long time to get an idea of all the variations that might occur in the piece. One rule might say ‘raise 1 out of every 100 notes by 5 semitones’ and another might say ‘raise one out of every 50 notes by 7 semitones’. If those two instructions are operating on the same data stream, sometimes - very rarely - they will both operate on the same note…so something like 1 in every 5000 notes will be raised by 12 semitones. You won’t know which of those 5000 notes it’s going to be. Since there are a lot of these types of operations going on together, on different but parallel data streams, the end result is a complex and unpredictable web. Perhaps you can divide artists into two categories: farmers and cowboys. The farmers settle a piece of land and cultivate it carefully, finding more and more value in it. The cowboys look for new places and are excited by the sheer fact of discovery, and the freedom of being somewhere that not many people have been before. I used to think I was temperamentally more cowboy than farmer… but the fact that the series to which this piece belongs has been running now for over 4 decades makes me think that there’s quite a big bit of farmer in me.

Lorenzo Senni - Persona
Lorenzo Senni releases his first EP on Warp Records after announcing his signing to the label; in ‘Persona’ Senni explores his fascination with the intricacies of trance music and culture, a logical expansion of the key themes in previous releases ‘Quantum Jelly’ and ‘Superimpositions’. The track ‘Rave Voyeur’ is somewhat synonymous of Lorenzo himself, an observer and purveyor of the genre. He is also an active participant in a new movement of artists transporting trance into 2016, sculpting arguably an even more intense and mind-bending model than the one that evolved out of the 1990s rave scene...

Kelela - Take Me Apart
With great anticipation, Kelela’s debut album emerges as an epic portrait of an artist spanning the past and future of R&B. In her hands, however, the genre knows no boundaries: ‘Take Me Apart’ exists as a singular and fearless addition to a canon of recent classics. The process of crafting ‘Take Me Apart’ embraced the approach of widely collaborative R&B, hip hop and pop production while roaming a strange and wonderful path.

Clark - Death Peak
“I’ve had the title ‘Death Peak’ since August 2016. It felt so right, I would repeat it to myself like a mantra,” says Clark of his forthcoming album. “It starts gently, all meadows and butterflies and ends with you on top of this gnarly fearsome mountain peak, surveying a shattered landscape below.” The record deftly weaves together the various threads of his extensive work, intertwining euphoric melodies and visceral rhythms of warehouse rave with new vocal and choral elements. ‘Death Peak’ exposes the tension in Clark’s musical vocabulary: “I love finding the fulcrum between opposites - I want my tracks to have sharp teeth, but you want to stroke them too. They sound ancient, but beamed in from the future, soft, corrosive.”

Mount Kimbie - Love What Survives
Love What Survives is the third studio album from Mount Kimbie. It is a melodic yet robust electronic record for driving with the windows down and a distillation of their career to date, mixing multiple singing voices and musical personalities, flirting with freeform experimentation, pop tropes and an expansive sonic palette. As the title suggests the record is the product of three years of intense creative development, continually honed by the duo writing and rewriting their ideas to form something wholly idiosyncratic and personal. It brings together the voices of their close friends and collaborators - who together represent a corner of the UK’s young artistic talent - James Blake, Micachu and King Krule, within the immersive, unique atmosphere of a Mount Kimbie album. It’s the most confident statement of intent from the boundary-pushing duo yet, and an embodiment of their career-long musical progression.

Jumbo's Jack Donnison says "An album soused on the spirit of collaboration, full of warmth and melody. A standout album for 2017."

Bibio - Phantom Brickwork
What has Bibio in store for us this time? Lo-fi pastoral electronics, hi-fi Clarkalike bangers, dollops of disco or some of his peculiar, warm-spirited hybrids of the lot? In fact, Stephen Wilkinson’s new offering unexpectedly consists of semi-improvised, rather long pieces (up to 17 minutes). As the title Phantom Brickworks sort of suggests, these unhurried fellows reflect on the shifting meanings and associations of places as time passes. Another feather for Steve’s bow!
