    Blondes grace the RVNG catalogue once again for their second, label long-player. Their crystalline, icy techno / house hybrid evokes the warm, low end of Basic Channel, coloured by the vivid melodies of Kompakt's Superpitcher and Walls. A recommendation for fans of Jon Hopkins, Stellar OM Source and James Holden.

    Heatsick Snakes & Ladders EP Sounds Of The Universe / Soul Jazz Records

    Trippy experimental club tracks from Steven Warwick aka Heatsick exclusive to our Sounds Of The Universe imprint. Limited to 300 copies - available only direct from our store or websites

    All artwork designed by Heatsick himself and includes 12 X 12 hand-screen printed numbered artwork.

    "Snakes & Ladders" - where Casio stabs and a barking bassline builds up to a stretching crescendo of white-noise percussion - a rhythm track from the Music Box heyday performed in striking Casio tones. 

    The ultimate night driving music  - "Time Smudge" is an interstellar journey through trippy space pads and grinding pedalled bass. 

    Heatsick explains:

    "Snakes & Ladders deals with game theory on the grid, slithering around precariously only to fall down a worm(snake?) hole on Time Smudge, reprogramming the ride"

    Om from her excellent 'Needs Continuum' release on the label ealier in 2013, Karen Gwyer teams up with L.I.E.S. artist, Torn Hawk; the results yeild a giddying brew of lo-fi, electronic / rock that nods to classic-era Growing, driven by the familiar mortorik rhythm of krautrock. Superb.

      2562UnbalanceTectonic

      2562 returns with another brilliant album on Tectonic!

      This is the wicked second album from Dave Huismans aka 2562.  His critically debut album 'Aerial' appeared on just about everyones 'best of the year' charts and literally flew off the shelves here at SOTU! He doesn't disappoint his loyal followers, taking a slighly different approach to 'Unbalance' than the dreamy soundscapes and deep dubby vibe of Aerial, with more upbeat dancefloor direction.  The resuts are brilliant, the album has an early a post-garage vibe with skippy 4/4 beats, syncopated unpredictable rhythms, whilst also incorporating a deep techno housey feel!

      Deep spacious rhythms, 808 beats, twisted synths, warm pads and disorientated lazer stabs! this album is like a wet dream for fans of Martyn, Burial etc!

      Vakula You've Never Been To Konotop (Selected works 2009-2012)Firecracker

      Vakula's long-overdue album arrives, focusing on material produced over a 3 year period. Combining elements of Ukrainian folk melodies, cosmic murk, afro-electronic and field recordings, Vakula adds these to his analogue-ready breed of house and techno. A sprawling, ambitious body of work that has the producer diving deeper into much freer and experimental areas. Superb!
