On Finding Yourself this means gradually softening and undermining a tick-tocking jackbeat by surrounding it with woozy synths, while A Thousand Years takes the opposite tack, fencing in grime/funky syncopations behind rigid hi-hats and layering on UR-esque melodies. Face Two – a fairly unoriginal Motor City electro pastiche – is less memorable, but Barracuda is another superb track, its mournful bassweight and chilly strings calling to mind Redshape’s 2012 take on Martyn’s We Are You In The Future.

Violiner/Concentratedhttp://www.electronicsupperclub.tv/reviews/will-ward-violiner-concentrated-deadplate-review http://www.electronicsupperclub.tv/reviews/will-ward-violiner-concentrated-deadplate-review#comments Thu, 07 Nov 2013 11:00:57 +0000 http://www.electronicsupperclub.tv/?p=1389 Nicely contrasting styles for Deadplate number five come courtesy of Portico Quartet affiliate Will Ward. B-track Concentrated is the attention-grabber here, going straight for the throat with gravelly kicks and a glowering bassline. But Violiner runs out the slow-burning winner, its gently ebbing and flowing tide of horns and ethereal pads freighted by enough businesslike low end to prevent the track drifting off into dinner-party chilloutland meh.

Deflourished EPhttp://www.electronicsupperclub.tv/reviews/william-kouam-djoko-deflourished-rush-hour-review http://www.electronicsupperclub.tv/reviews/william-kouam-djoko-deflourished-rush-hour-review#comments Wed, 06 Nov 2013 11:00:24 +0000 http://www.electronicsupperclub.tv/?p=1381 It’s inspired by the exhilarating sonic zigzag of a Rashad and Spinn footwork set but, tempo aside, the title track of William Kouam Djoko’s excellent new EP carries only faint traces of those influences. Deflourished sets its light-footed polyrhythms flying over wordless vocal samples and the odd orchestral interjection, the end result being an awesomely spare, pitched-up-Karizma-style vibe. On the flip, Behind Closed Doors‘ crackling electrofunk-flavoured house translates the same satisfyingly roomy design into a warm, languid setting.

Secromancehttp://www.electronicsupperclub.tv/reviews/sequence-report-secromance-tevo-howard http://www.electronicsupperclub.tv/reviews/sequence-report-secromance-tevo-howard#comments Mon, 30 Sep 2013 13:00:30 +0000 http://www.electronicsupperclub.tv/?p=1359 Chi-house retro-romantic Tevo Howard takes a dive into sepia-toned, sweetly mouldering electropop for this mini-album as Sequence Report on his own Tevo Howard Recordings, home to some of electronic music’s most laughably cheap-looking artwork.

Secromance is all crackles, speak-and-spell voices and the kind of Temazepam synth tones that sound as if they’ve been left on a radiator and melted slightly. Indeed, Howard stressed on RA earlier in the year that this “stylistic choice” should be considered the work of a “full-scale alias” rather than his usual self.

Pick of the tracks: the drawn-out payoff of Beauty to Body Count, which lays skeletal snare rattles and robotic male/female vocal interplay over a melody like a spindly cousin of the Pet Shop Boys’ Rent, and Been Steppin’ to your Love‘s dreamy tribute to “the Chicago steppers community”. But, so long as you’re at least a bit of a sucker for this kind of thing, the majority of Secromance should sink its gauzy, insubstantial hooks into you with ease.

Prototype EPhttp://www.electronicsupperclub.tv/reviews/black-sites-prototype-pan http://www.electronicsupperclub.tv/reviews/black-sites-prototype-pan#comments Thu, 29 Aug 2013 11:00:57 +0000 http://www.electronicsupperclub.tv/?p=1340 Following Rashad Becker’s recent heavyweight Traditional Music of Notional Species album, PAN makes a superb foray onto the dancefloor courtesy of this debut 12″ from Black Sites, a collab between Hamburg’s Helena Hauff and F#X.

Thudding in on an sodden-sounding kick’n'squeak pattern, Prototype on the A-side soon lifts off in more infectious directions, teasing with half-submerged Detroit chords before cutting loose with an ascending, shifting 303 buzzsaw that’s only occasionally jostled out of earshot by the storm of distorted percussion hits and blips that descends over the rest of the track’s nine-minute course.

Despite the array of Drexciya-cum-Rollin’ & Scratchin’ squeals that announce its arrival, N313P on the flip is a slightly more measured – if no less brutal – creation. Rather than hit the ‘giddy’ button, it simply settles into an iron-jawed, bass-weighted thrum that seems to come to an end all too quickly. This is primal, joyous techno of the highest order.

Aerotropolishttp://www.electronicsupperclub.tv/reviews/ikonika-aerotropolis http://www.electronicsupperclub.tv/reviews/ikonika-aerotropolis#comments Tue, 30 Jul 2013 12:02:55 +0000 http://www.electronicsupperclub.tv/?p=1291 Listen back to Ikonika’s debut LP Contact, Love, Want, Have and you’re struck by just how fizzy the music of 2010 sounds across the narrow three-year divide. UK Funky’s spring-heeled beats had been gambolling across the nation for several years at that point, of course. Indeed they and the album’s other main touchstones – reinvigorated garage flex; chiptune; Guido and Joker’s acid-fried 140bpm squeals – appeared to have slung moody flavours firmly out of the back door of the club.

It’s not like scowling styles have returned with a vengeance in the meantime. But Sara Abdel-Hamid’s only substantial release since Contact – last July’s I Make Lists six-tracker – suffered from its embrace of the house and techno lockstep that’s again gripping large sections of the electronic music landscape. Against the newly rigid backdrop, Ikonika’s trademark synth leads suddenly grated where previously they’d ebbed and flowed like waves of phosphorescent plankton.

Aerotropolis‘s opening gambit, Mise En Place, feels like a deliberate attempt to reconcile the two approaches. Announcing itself via a raw box-beat, a flickering melody soon gains the upper hand for most of the track’s 97-second duration.

It’s a contest between grit and approachability that’s repeated across much of Aerotropolis, which, like Joker’s overcooked The Vision, has a high-gloss sheen absent from its maker’s earlier work. Abdel-Hamid’s spoken of it trying to capture “a fantasy of me being a lot older in the 80s”, and sonic signifiers of that decade – from hard-edged 707 rhythms to the processed ‘guitar’ lines that career over them – are rarely far away.

Those consciously retro-tooled parameters stop Aerotropolis from surfing the levels of giddy freshness reached by its predecessor. But it still packs a powerful serotonin punch that makes it a difficult album to dislike.

Single Beach Mode, with Jessy Lanza (the first vocal Ikonika track) is an effortless house-pop zephyr. Mr Cake and Eternal Mode both work from a big-budget, sci-fi-soundtracking electrofunk template – and each features the kind of irresistibly rising chord progressions that’ll rake rushy trails across the scalps of chemically enhanced listeners.

It’s not all ecstatic delight – there are missteps here and there. Manchego, with its bad-tempered, insectoid bassline, sounds like a reject from I Make Lists. Both the feedback-drenched breakdown in Lights Are Forever and Mega Church‘s portentous trap workout stretch ‘widescreen’ to breaking point.

Ultimately though Aerotropolis feels, like Contact, a pretty successful product of its circumstances – which are now an artist consolidating skills (in an environment suffocating in ‘vintage’ music) while managing to hang onto the distinctive elements of their sound. Maybe by the next time Ikonika steps out of the studio things will have shifted and she’ll be truly pioneering again, maybe not, but in the meantime this will do nicely.

Pipes At Helios Canyon (Legowelt Remix)http://www.electronicsupperclub.tv/reviews/pipes-helios-canyon-legowelt-remix http://www.electronicsupperclub.tv/reviews/pipes-helios-canyon-legowelt-remix#comments Fri, 05 Jul 2013 12:00:40 +0000 http://www.electronicsupperclub.tv/?p=1266 With Legowelt in the midst of a particularly rich purple patch, you could argue that it’s a confident artist who invites his services as a remixer at present. There’s a nice sense of symmetry to him stepping up to The Third Man’s proggily titled Pipes At Helios Canyon though – the original’s just the kind of horizon-spanning Italo solar flare that Danny Wolfers used to specialise in. Frazzled synths roar, arpeggios spiral away into the distance and the whole thing’s anchored by subtly reinforced box-beats.

That said, Wolfers’ remix isn’t in any real danger of being put in the shade. Turning up the juice on the kicks, he predictably hauls things in a more technoid direction via needling acid lines and some signature twinkly melodies before unveiling a cavernous Reese b-line around the 90-second mark. The less attention-grabbing but appealingly breezy The Tracker – punctuated by some wonderfully gnarled bass notes as it builds – rounds off an excellent package.

Scaleshttp://www.electronicsupperclub.tv/reviews/lil-jabba-scales http://www.electronicsupperclub.tv/reviews/lil-jabba-scales#comments Thu, 27 Jun 2013 11:00:56 +0000 http://www.electronicsupperclub.tv/?p=1237 Considering its roots in some of the most bare-bones, neighbourhood-specific and sonically unsettling music ever laid down, footwork’s sure breeding some immersive, easy-on-the-ears releases of late. If you’re the type of person who’s highly unlikely to ever be found ‘stepping in the circle’, this may be an unexpected pleasure.

It’s got to be said, footwork’s hynotic slow/fast skitterings have always made it a more spacious, interesting home listen than pounding 4/4 dance styles tend to be. But the recent likes of DJ Rashad’s gorgeous heat-haze shimmer Rollin’ showcase a form that’s evolved somewhere far beyond – though not totally severed from – the ruthless patterns of juke that spawned it.

Lil Jabba’s debut album Scales is a case in point. Plenty of non-Chicago producers have knocked off and rebuilt aspects of footwork, from Addison Groove’s early appropriation of its pitchshifted vocal snatches, through Kuedo’s decimated Blade Runner revisions, Om Unit’s jungle fusions, and onward.

Australian-born Jabba, however, who looks like a babyfaced castaway from The Warriors, is a rarity in being able to call himself an honorary member of Spinn, Rashad, Manny and Traxman’s Teklife/Ghettoteknitianz crew.

Does his music bear comparison to Chi-town’s big boys? Well, maybe not directly – though given that Jabba recently claimed Scales might be best enjoyed “in a botanical garden – in the misty jungle room, in a dank cavern, in an abandoned Viking longhall”, you feel that doing so would be kind of missing the point.

Many elements you’d reach for to create an identikit footwork track are present: spine-cracking snares, galloping toms and 808 thunder – check. But it takes little more than a scan through mythology-inspired track titles like Loki and Gorgon – and a quick listen to Red Current‘s meandering intro – to mark Scales down as something more whimsical than most products of the Windy.

Given that it’s stitched together from several years’ remastered offcuts and a sprinkling of fresh productions, the tone stays pretty consistent. In contrast with, say, RP Boo’s gleaming military-industrial beats, much of Scales sounds wadded in old-C90 cotton-wool – hardly surprising, given that some of it first surfaced on limited-edition tapes.

Nagging fragments of melody cribbed from jazz, classical, soundtracks and who knows what else wend their way around the rhythmic lattices – as on Maven – before snapping occasionally into line on more urgent cuts like Raiders and Echinacea.

If there’s a fault with all this, it’s that Scales can tend to drift by, a pleasantly beguiling whole that – with the exception of Gorgon‘s queasy Oriental synths, gunshots and “Teklife, we run the show” chants – rarely reaches out and demands the attention. Anyone who gets riled by Terror Danjah’s ever-present Gremlin laugh may find that the frequent “Lil Jabba on the track” snippets do their head in after a while, too.

These are minor quibbles though. Scales might not be a classic, but as an inventive and textured way to pass three quarters of an hour it’s right on the money.

Are You Aroundhttp://www.electronicsupperclub.tv/reviews/ambalance-are-you-around http://www.electronicsupperclub.tv/reviews/ambalance-are-you-around#comments Tue, 11 Jun 2013 11:00:27 +0000 http://www.electronicsupperclub.tv/?p=1182 A belated review of this one, out for a couple of weeks now, seems appropriate really. Torontonians XI and Skeleton Bone, AKA Ambalance deal in dance music so hazed out as to be far better suited to gouching in an overstuffed armchair chugging opioid cough medicine than actually going anywhere near a nightclub. Indeed, the duo drew a few raised eyebrows last March for coating their debut EP in narco-references (wildly inappropriate title: Cokewave… spurious but fitting genre: ‘heroin house’).

Bullshitty drug namechecks aside though, Ambalance are turning out steadily satisfying music. May 2012′s Discard was a fractured, desolate affair; by contrast Are You Around offers a dense, warm cocoon of sound. The beats are still molasses-slow, but the title track slouches almost purposefully on its way, occasionally spilling trap-py rattles and incoherent vocal mutterings as it goes. Following it with Grenier’s excellent remix is like watching a lens moving into focus – the shapes remain similar but spaces open up, hard percussive edges appear and cotton-wool elements fade into the background.

Main courses over, there’s time for two three-and-a-bit minute cameos. Ixtrane is a limpid, almost cosmic-disco chugger, smooth washes of sound and heavily treated guitars building and fragmenting, while Gregory low-rides off into the distance on a pitched-down (of course), electro-flavoured chassis thoroughly pimped out with 303 squelch.

If You’re Reading This EPhttp://www.electronicsupperclub.tv/reviews/mgun-if-youre-reading-this-review http://www.electronicsupperclub.tv/reviews/mgun-if-youre-reading-this-review#comments Tue, 04 Jun 2013 11:00:12 +0000 http://www.electronicsupperclub.tv/?p=1102 Chicago’s been big news again these past few years. But arguably Manuel Gonzales’ MGUN releases for Don’t Be Afraid and The Trilogy Tapes (and in cohorts with Kyle Hall as NSNT) have caused more ears to swivel in the direction of a fresh Detroit producer than’s been the case for a while.

It figures. Dance music’s weird, history-flattening state finds 90s-fixated teens sharing bills with genre pioneers old enough to be their dads, some little more than living museum pieces while others gamely carry on much as they’ve always done.

So what could be more appealing than a young Motor City native in thrall to vinyl and analogue gear, who’s mates with Underground Resistance, turning out elegant, stern music that nods to that militant past… while having little in common with the Barratt-home musical neoclassicism that’s doing the rounds?

Of course, Gonzales’ approach is hardly unique. The likes of the LIES and Rush Hour crews have ploughed a similar furrow in recent years, while the tireless Legowelt has made a career out of subtly pruning, splicing and tending genres into new strains – and if you’re a fan of any of the above, you’ll probably lap If You’re Reading This up.

As with previous MGUN EPs, there’s enviable variety, but here perhaps better balance between short and long; crisp and muffled; club and home listening. Two extended acidic burblers in the shape of Proxy and Tritan are offset by opener Hand Over Fifth‘s groggy synth doodling and Jijijijij$ijijijiji‘s raw electro cameo.

On a more fuzzed-out note Funnel Vision and, particularly, Bean Chirp showcase the same blend of menace and beauty that made Shamen, from January’s Near Future EP, feel like a lost descendant of UR’s Final Frontier.

They don’t really try to sound like it, though – so there’s no need to read too deeply into that pitch-perfect backstory. If You’re Reading This is another winner for MGUN on its own terms.

Synergy EPhttp://www.electronicsupperclub.tv/reviews/synergy-ep http://www.electronicsupperclub.tv/reviews/synergy-ep#comments Tue, 02 Apr 2013 14:13:06 +0000 http://www.electronicsupperclub.tv/?p=1079 Sometime Numbers affiliate Taz Buckfaster has been guilty of unleashing some pretty foul aggro-dubstep – some of it on Rwina – since his anthemic 2010 debut Gold Tooth Grin. Thankfully the Synergy EP, a hookup with his label boss Akkachar, finds all trace of screwface thoroughly smoothed and replaced with four tracks of aerated synth exercise that make for one of the year’s funnest 12s.

Mobius, all overdriven grime bombast and Sonic samples, takes the biggest strides into outright raving territory. But elsewhere – along with a voguish shift towards juke and trap-flavoured rhythms – there’s a playfully cheesy chucking together of vacuous, stadium-trance offcuts and razor-tipped beats and blips that’s closer in mood to Rustie’s tartrazine-bright productions. Meanwhile the demented Paul Is Dead weaves a Big Boi vocal chopped (and screwed) from UGK’s International Players into a bizarrely uplifting slice of kinda-footwork. Check your sugar levels first, then enjoy.

Asteroidshttp://www.electronicsupperclub.tv/reviews/asteroids http://www.electronicsupperclub.tv/reviews/asteroids#comments Fri, 15 Mar 2013 15:45:54 +0000 http://www.electronicsupperclub.tv/?p=1033 While there’s been plenty of renewed interest in early dubstep’s gloom and dread, thanks to the grime and funky-inflected 130bpm shadings of Beneath, Wen, Visionist and their brethren, it’s rarer these days to take much enjoyment getting lost in the 140-paced expanses of the genre’s ‘pure’ form.

Which makes the trouser-rattling yet restrained vastness of Asteroids – V.I.V.E.K’s debut on his own System Music, after releases on Deep Medi and Tectonic – an oddly pleasurable trip. There’s nostalgia here for the distant mists of eight years ago, sure – not least in the sub-bass, presumably designed for V.I.V.E.K’s custom-built soundsystem, which is low enough that it becomes an almost imperceptible rumble if you’re flexing this over the wrong equipment. But Asteroids‘ subtly-deployed, widescreen sci-fi synth whines and growls also chime with the brand of 85/170 ‘slowfast’ futurism currently gathering momentum.

Appropriately it’s Om Unit who sets to work on B-side Over My Head (simply Asteroids with added buttery vox from Mel Dymand). His version adds an insistent pulse and gradually pads some of the track’s empty space with melting cymbal sounds, woozy, just-about-audible vocal loops and – just for 16 climactic bars – the rattle of hi-hats. It nicely complements Om Unit’s essential Aeolian EP from last summer, and offers an additional incentive to lay your hands on this – even if you never gave a shit about dubstep.

History Survivors EPhttp://www.electronicsupperclub.tv/reviews/lucy-silent-servant-history-survivors-mote http://www.electronicsupperclub.tv/reviews/lucy-silent-servant-history-survivors-mote#comments Mon, 11 Mar 2013 11:00:43 +0000 http://www.electronicsupperclub.tv/?p=1005 With panel-beating techno’s stock riding high, this joint effort between ex-Sandwell Districter Juan Mendez (aka Silent Servant) and Stroboscopic Artefacts honcho Lucy is another in a seemingly limitless line of recent hard-tack collabs primed to weaken spotters’ knees.

Unlike Mendez’s raved-over but brief 2012 LP Negative Fascination, the tracks here – Dormancy Survivors and Victors’ History – span 13 and 10 minutes. Those luxurious lengths offer plenty of room for sonic shifts headphone listeners will appreciate, but this release feels aimed pretty squarely at the floor.

A knock-on effect is that History Survivors lacks some of the enjoyably beat-up scruffiness of both contributors’ most recent output: as with Negative Fascination, Lucy’s Finnegan from the tail-end of last year did a fine job of coating its precision design in a fur of disuse. True, even Dormancy Survivors (the harder offering here) isn’t exactly shiny; but its collection of clanks and skronks is driven forward by a kick pattern supple enough to divert attention from how desolate the rest of its sound palette is – and by the time a steel-drums-gone-nasty riff kicks in around the four-minute mark, we’re firmly in the peak-time zone.

On the flip, Victors’ History sounds almost soothing by comparison, but its wide open spaces and dubby pulse will be well suited to earlier in the night, or to slipping in next to something housier. Either way, it rounds things out to complete a well-balanced brace of productions.

Slime EPhttp://www.electronicsupperclub.tv/reviews/slime-ep http://www.electronicsupperclub.tv/reviews/slime-ep#comments Mon, 25 Feb 2013 13:08:21 +0000 http://www.electronicsupperclub.tv/?p=946 A cursory listen to this solo debut from London producer Fold (aka one half of duo HomePark) and you’d be forgiven for dismissing it as one of Man Make Music’s more forgettable releases. George FitzGerald’s label has pumped out some treats over the past few months, ranging from U’s crackle-murked transmissions (and cheeky borrowing from Carl Craig) to Natan H & Amy Jean’s glimmering disco-tech manoeuvres last time out. Lead track here, Slime, sounds merely competent by comparison – it’s a pleasant enough slice of crystalline dub-house, but doesn’t exactly set the pulse racing.

Thankfully the same can’t be said for the other two-thirds of the EP. With the near-eternal life now enjoyed by music genres, it’s become pretty meaningless to describe productions as ‘timeless’. But Ethyl’s sublime, smooth techno remix of Slime manages the neat trick of sounding unashamedly like a moment stolen from some long-silenced 1995 dancefloor and given a lick of modern gloss – while still towering over the landscape of yawn-inducing identikit retreads claiming to channel the spirit of classic Detroit/Chicago/NY/delete as appropriate. And Moving Patterns is just as good: it’s made out of the same stuff as the original mix of Slime, but here massive descending subs and a euphoric/wistful female vocal coil around the glassy chords, with the end result coming across like early Good Looking gone house.

Commotion EPhttp://www.electronicsupperclub.tv/reviews/commotion-ep http://www.electronicsupperclub.tv/reviews/commotion-ep#comments Mon, 25 Feb 2013 12:59:30 +0000 http://www.electronicsupperclub.tv/?p=910 Hard-ish on the heels of December’s Illusions doublepack from Beneath, Wen’s Commotion EP is another foray by Dusk and Blackdown’s Keysound into the kind of deep 130bpm murk that relates to UK funky a little like how 2004-era dubstep plates did to garage (the DNA of all those genres, and grime, is present here).

While Beneath’s first few releases have grabbed attention by setting funky’s polyrhythmic flex off against dark, eerie textures, Wen’s debut is much less sonically busy, and it’s all the more menacing for it. Throughout the EP, a decaying, horror-movie atmosphere – conjured by dank slabs of bass and the disembodied snatches of MC chatter interspersing each track – runs up against a subtle, liquid-metal mesh of drum programming, dicing it here and hemming it in there to dramatic effect.

The title cut in particular draws power from the ominous spaces within its stepping rhythm – filled at intervals with low-end rumble – which are only gradually filled by pitched-down string stabs. Nightcrawler is even more off-kilter, fogged-out jungle pads (calling to mind Lee Gamble’s recent love letter to the genre, Diversions) and occasional distorted kicks interrupting its crisply popping beats.

Over on the B-side, Spark It is the closest Commotion gets to upfront – its crushing bassline rides the rudest, most sinuous wiggle on the EP. But only by a nose: Road is built on another slippery syncopation, a sliced up Trim acapella and stop-start structure bringing things to a juddering conclusion. It’s another essential, distinctive release from Keysound – and sharpens the appetite for the label’s This Is How We Roll compilation, due out in March.

Trace EPhttp://www.electronicsupperclub.tv/reviews/trace-ep http://www.electronicsupperclub.tv/reviews/trace-ep#comments Mon, 25 Feb 2013 12:58:46 +0000 http://www.electronicsupperclub.tv/?p=906 Midland returns to AUS for his and the label’s first release of 2013, and the Trace EP finds him increasingly mining the colder, more rigid sound evident on last year’s Placement. Indeed, A-side Trace‘s brittle beats and repetitive vocal snippet come across as pretty sterile on first listen. While it never really loses that sense of functionality, the canny flirtation with synth-fuelled drama over the midsection, as the bass morphs from rubbery to metallic, makes this an effective floor tool.

For (Yacht) Club Use Only, with its swung kick pattern, deep marimba notes and an actual chord progression, is an altogether friendlier beast. Here too there’s a steeliness, mostly stemming from a rattlesnake snare sound straight out of the manual blueprinted by Plastikman’s Spastik, but the contrast with the track’s suppler elements makes this the more interesting half of the EP.

The Boat / Keep Few Nearhttp://www.electronicsupperclub.tv/reviews/the-boat-keep-few-near http://www.electronicsupperclub.tv/reviews/the-boat-keep-few-near#comments Thu, 21 Feb 2013 13:48:10 +0000 http://www.electronicsupperclub.tv/?p=890 After a solid opening two EPs of crisp house and techno revisions – most notable for Anthony Shakir’s stunning Lando Kal refix last time out – Icee Hot heads into more expansive realms in the company of Montreal’s Grown Folk.

Both originals here are lushly padded confections that ditch the sassy swing of 2011′s City Wind EP for Templar Sound. The Boat keeps things languid, tipping a hat to the smudged, world-weary feel of 90s gems such as 20:20 Vision’s Future Remembrance via its shuffling tempo and insistently pulsing bass motif. The highlight, though, is Keep New Fear: it ups both pace and grunt factor, its twinkling melodies underpinned by a satisfyingly gnarled low end as the track progresses.

But the real hard stuff comes courtesy of the remixes that fill out the release. Grizzled Dutchman Gerd gives The Boat‘s wispier aspects short shrift, installing a Steve Poindexter-indebted rhythm, ‘work it’ command and atonal acid line that add up to (perhaps unsurprisingly) an effective but by-the-numbers jack-track. Ghosts On Tape’s rework of Keep New Fear is more interesting, swooping subs and a textbook, insistent techno riff combining for a strong piece of peak-point gear. However, unless you’re in the thick of a sweaty small-hours room, the original mixes win out here.

Live urban robotic art is brought to you by artist Mattias Jones and robotic devices developed by the University of Sheffield. Watch the live production of a massive scale mural painted by robots. You can also listen to the amplified sounds the robots make as they goes about the task of creating the artwork. Big fans of Matt’s work at eSC towers!

https://www.facebook.com/madebyjones 

Project Longarm presents : Mind Out. 

For the Festival of the Mind this September, a small army of robots will complete an installation in one unbroken line.

The University of Sheffield has teamed its leading academic researchers with the city’s visual artists, poets and musicians to help bring complex research out of the libraries and laboratories to reach a wider, more public audience.

One such collaboration will see a massive scale mural painted by robots that will speed around their opus, mirroring the way that bees buzz about in nature.In nature, bees obliviously solve the ‘Travelling Salesman’s Problem’, always taking the shortest route from flower to flower in their pursuit of nectar.Based on these flight patterns, artist Mattias Jones and psychologist Dr. Tom Stafford have teamed up with computer coder and Berlin based record producer Tom Whiston, and Sheffield engineer James Folkes to create a mathematical formula that will allow two robots to behave in the same way.

The algorithm, which will mean the robots work in the quickest, most efficient way possible, will allow them to paint a giant, 16-foot squared mural of the Sheffield landscape in less than a week.

Dr. Stafford estimates that asking two humans to carry out exactly the same task would take at least a month.

Those curious to see the robots working on their highly sophisticated, ‘join the dots’ drawing will even be able to walk between them as they produce their art piece.

Every year, the University of Sheffield’s School of Architecture carries out projects in the city, working with communities to explore new approaches to urban development. 50 Ideas brings ten years of those projects together in one place.

Passionate, positive, sometimes controversial, 50 Ideas will get people talking.

Chris Duckenfield is an absolute SoYo legend with a history that stretches from the early party scene in Sheffield to running a vinyl distribution company, All Ears, in 2012. Watching him at work is a really treat and well as a wallet emptier as you feel the need to own every track he’s dropped. Spotters beware!
