  8. Starethrough (Transition mix) (5:04)
Review: One of three Seefeel re-releases arriving together - shining light on the band's mid-90s 'Warp years' - St/Fr/Sp is the only one of these that has really never existed in the past. Comprising two EPs, Starethrough and Fracture/Tied, the outing also brings in a very rare Autechre remix of 'Spangle', making for a package that's got collector's item written all over it.

Musically, this is around the moment when Seefeel began to fully embrace the abstract and electronic, having just signed to Warp, and while the shoegaze of their past remains audible there are so many influences here plucked from beyond that spectrum. Embracing ambient, drone, rave chill-out, dub, acid, and psychedelia, this edition reflects two ends of that world - the blissful and largely astral first EP, and beat-driven and highly rhythmic second.

Review: Seefeel's second studio album, their first for the feted Warp imprint, saw them expand on some of the ideas in their 1993 debut, continuing to embrace the lush soundscapes that typify shoegaze and rooting things in deep sub bass, while bringing fascinating new blueprints to the table.

Which isn't too surprising, given Succour landed in 1995, by which point the UK's rave scene had managed to find a way into almost every aspect of youth and pop culture. Far from a dance music album, nevertheless the record has clear acid house influences, from soaring vocal cries through to intoxicatingly loose types of syncopated rhythm crafted from heavily detailed percussive sections, with tracks like 'Vex' taking us all the way to IDM. Exquisite explorations so far ahead of their time they still sound new almost 30 years later.

Review: In line with the timely reappraisal of all things R&S related, the resurgent Apollo have seen the opportunity to bring one of their most celebrated records back for another round. Aphex Twin's ambient recordings mature magnificently with age, sounding ever richer and more emotive as the rest of electronic music continues to play catch up all around. From the gentle breakbeats of "Xtal" to the aquatic techno lure of "Tha", the airy rave of "Pulsewidth" to the heartwrenching composition of "Ageispolis", every track is a perennial example of how far ambient techno could reach even back then. It's just that no-one quite had the arm-span of Richard D. James.

Review: The re-appraisal of early Seefeel has been long overdue. We're not entirely sure why this hasn't happened before, but to put things into context this is the first time Ch-Vox has been available on vinyl since it debuted in 1996, sidling up alongside the band's other outings dating back to 1994, all of which came about through involvement with Sheffield and global electronic music institution, Warp Records.

Ch-Vox actually landed on Rephlex, the imprint founded by Warp regular Richard D James, AKA Aphex Twin, and Grant Wilson-Claridge. Taking us further into the chill-out rooms, Sunday morning comedowns and midweek meditative moods of UK rave, in many ways Ch-Vox is more complex in concept than its predecessor, Succour, helping establish an early framework for what we now know as drone.

Review: Having spent much of her still developing career working alongside husband James Barnard in Los Angeles-based ambient act Awakened Souls, Cynthia Barnard bas begun to deliver occasional solo and collaborative releases as Marine Eyes. Idyll is her debut solo album under the alias, and tends towards the pastoral, meditative and immersive. Created as a way of exploring "the healing nature of sound", the album's weightless, enveloping soundscapes combine billowing new age synthesizer chords and lapping waves of electronic sound with effects-laden guitar textures, field recordings and layered vocalisations. The results are becalmed, beautiful and calming - perfect for those who need to de-stress or escape through music.

Review: Lord Of The Isles is the nom de plume of Scottish producer Neil McDonald, who inaugurates his new imprint Dusk Delay here with the Geoglyph EP. Inspired by the long summer nights of the northern hemisphere, it expertly fuses rare vintage instruments and effects with ultra modern production techniques. From the beatless and expansive dub techno ambience of 'Reduct' to the foggy deep house of the title track and its bittersweet emotions, there's more diversity on display with the complex IDM of 'Recall' and it's early '90s aesthetic, plus the haunting drone piece 'Edenfire' closing out a terrific EP.

  13. First Death In The Family (4:50)
While everyone alive with working ears in the 1990s can remember the first time they heard 'Papua New Guinea', on the whole the work included on this, FSOL's second album, doesn't quite strike the same chords with non-obsessives. Nevertheless, give the LP one play and you'll realise this is seminal British rave on record, and arguably the finest moment in Garry Cobain (no relation to Kurt) and Brian Dougans' careers.

Which isn't to dismiss what came before or what would follow, more to say there's a reason why this is considered a landmark release by those in the know. Kissing frenetic breaks and chaotic sampling goodbye, Dead Cities ushered a new wave of lush tranquility into the band's formula, in turn helping establish a blueprint for the deep progressive tones that would come to dominate dance culture by the end of the 1990s. Now on vinyl for the first time, it's an essential investment.

One of the most defining records of what was known for better or worse as IDM still sounds as timeless as it did in 1998, as the library tones of "Wildlife Analysis", thick downtempo rhythms of "Roygbiv" and out of focus melodies of "Olson" prove. Essential!

Review: Considering she is known for a patient appreciation of space in sonic arrangements, Ana Roxanne works at a remarkable pace. Unveiling her debut album in 2019, last year she gave us the follow up, Because of a Flower, making for two great long forms in as many years. ~~~ preceded both as her first EP, arriving in 2015, but in many ways it remains the deepest dive into her world.

Focusing on rich ambient textures that seem to swirl around the ears before enveloping, or swallowing, the listener whole, ~~~ opens on the highly effective choral moods of 'Immortality', and then moves through a variety of emotive but calm moods, peaking with the track that first turned heads across the world, 'I'm Every Sparkly Woman', a rethink of the Whitney Houston and Chaka Khan anthem 'I'm Every Woman' that has since been Roxanne's ultimate stylistic calling card.

Review: Green-House is the handiwork of Olive Ardizoni, who finds a sympathetic ear in Leaving Records for her delicate, pastoral strains of ambient reflection. Rather than being static, these are charmingly alive pieces that quiver with sensitivity and plaintive melodies that suggest some inspiration from the iconic Mort Garson record composed for houseplants. If you enjoyed that wobbly ride through sweet-natured synth refrains, you'll love this album too as it interweaves warm tones around bucolic field recordings. This comes highly recommended - a record that leaves you feeling nourished after listening.

Combining Ahmed's expansive guitar/synth-work and Cantu-Ledesma's immaculate style of sound design, the collection of tracks "presents as a book of short stories or vignettes highlighting their individual strengths." This version of the release comes courtesy of Cantu-Ledesm's own Devotion imprint.

Review: Lisbon's Rui Maia has turned his hand to many different styles over a long and winding career, shoring up on Bear Funk, Optimus Discos and Belong over the years and also recording as Mirror People, Noise Reduction and X-Wife. After a few years silence, he re-emerged on the Groovement Organic Series label last year, and makes a swift return with another illustrious set of plaintive electronics for mellow reflection and headphone reveries. From the sombre refrains of 'Metade' to the strafing arps and sprightly chimes of 'Okino', there's vintage warmth rubbed into every inch of this release, but it doesn't feel disposably retro. Rather, Maia creates a space out of time for you to recline in, surrounded by dulcet synth shapes and the occasional tickle of a drum machine. Is there any better place to be?

Review: Up until his death in 2003, Hiroshi Yoshimura spent decades offering up immaculate albums that blurred the boundaries between ambient, new age and minimalism. For those not versed in the Japanese ambient pioneer's vast catalogue, 1986's "Green" - which is here reissued by Light In The Attic - remains one of his most impressive works. Created using a minimal number of instruments (mostly synthesizers and electric pianos), the set is as quietly jazzy as it is relaxing. Highlights include the meditative, Terry Riley influenced bliss of "Feel", the pulsing organ stabs and blissful electronics of "Sheep", the garden-ready musical hug that is "Green" and the swelling opener "Creek".

Review: Shanghai-based label have been slipping out delicate, melodic electronics for a few years now, spreading their assembled roster's sound across tapes, 7"s and digital releases. This 12" from Knopha came out in 2018 and was gone shortly after, so it's high time a repress of this sumptuous new age synth dream got sorted. The vibe is distinctly 90s across Nothing Nil, revelling in FM synthesis and laid back atmospheres. Plush chords abound, and the beats fall in soft and sensual formations, even when a cheeky breakbeat slips into the slow-mo pulse of 'San'. A truly captivating 12" with the potential to create some real 'moments' at the right hour of the party.

Review: As this expansive reissue proves, Max Richter's 2004 album The Blue Notebooks remains one of the greatest neo-classical works of recent decades. The album was famously inspired by the 2003 US invasion of Iraq and featured narration from actress Tilda Swinton. Such was the record's impact, in fact, that numerous pieces subsequently appeared on a variety of high profile movie soundtracks. To celebrate the work's 15th birthday, Richter has bundled the album with a second disc of largely unheard material. This includes a couple of intriguing remixes by Jlin and Konx-Om-Pax, two archive tracks produced during the album sessions, and a handful of new recordings of key instrumentals. These are all excellent, of course, but still pale in comparison to the inspired original album.

Review: Mecanica Clasica draw on the rich history and culture of the ancient Mediterranean on their stunning new album Mar Interior, which roughly translates as Inland Sea. Kosmische and fourth world music are the main references as the group distill the history and legacy of ancient civilizations into eight cinematic tracks that sound both futuristic yet mythological. The work of Craig Leon, Brian Eno and Cluster is a clear influence here, while environmental recordings add to the spaced out ambient synths and gently pulsing rhythms. Shimmering, hypnotic and mystic, this is as immersive and expressive as worldy ambient sounds get.

Review: Having firmly established himself as one of the foremost experimental producers of the past decade with albums like Replica, Returnal, and Rifts, Daniel Lopatin here makes the logical move to electronic music bastion Warp Records. On first listen R Plus Seven is quite unlike any of his other records, largely eschewing the arpeggiated drones of his early work and sample-based collages of his last album for something much more vivid. Coming across like a combination of the emotive minimalism of Terry Riley and Steve Reich, and the hyperreality of James Ferraro's Far Side Virtual, R Plus Seven nevertheless stakes its own claim in the world of post-everything electronic music, combining delicate, introspective moods with shocking moments of recognisable sonic signification. Quite possibly Lopatin's best album to date.

  7. Zauberberg 7
Review: Since its in initial release in 1997, Zauberberg has often been talked of in hushed terms. It was Wolfgang Voigt's second album as Gas and is now considered the most complete and detailed execution of his now trademark sound - a heady, hazy blend of treacle-think ambient textures, hissing vinyl crackle, faintly foreboding chord sequences and manipulated neo-classical loops. As this welcome reissue proves, what marks it out from later Gas albums is the fact that it's not wholly ambient, with many of Voight's included soundscapes featuring sparse, hypnotic rhythms, most built around subdued, heavily filtered kick-drum patterns. As a result, it's remains a mesmeric and genuinely mind-altering affair.

Review: This intriguing and predictably atmospheric album is the first collaborative full-length from experienced modern ambient producer Dennis Huddleston AKA 36, and Los Angeles duo Awakened Souls, whose full-length hook-up with Pepo Galan, Palettes, received plenty of praise last year. Between them the trio have conjured up a hugely evocative and emotion-rich collection of cuts, where heart-aching, slow-motion guitar laments stretch out across swelling synthesizer chords, meditative pads, distant-sounding vocal snippets, enveloping aural textures and soft-focus piano refrains. It's a wonderfully meditative and picturesque set all told, and one that could well turn out to be one of the most essential ambient albums of 2021.

This is the first album Ai Yamamoto has released for US imprint Past Inside The Present, and it almost feels like an artist finally coming home - albeit a home they never lived in before. A perfect meeting of minds a long time in the making, fittingly the work included here has also taken a while to materialise, with the arrangements presented written and recorded over a two year period, between 2018 and 2020.

Japan-born, Melbourne, Australia-bred, Yamamoto's extensive experience working with pianos, strings, wind instruments and keen attention to detail in terms of textures and timbre is clear to hear within moments of hitting play. Having been making music for the best part of two decades, she's long-since honed her craft and fine-tuned those skills, ensuring Love Me Tender is a hushed ambient beauty you won't easily forget.

Review: Raul Lovisoni and Francesco Messina's seminal LP from 1979 Prati Bagnati Del Monte Analogo not only introduced the world to the work of two gifted composers, but is also notable for being produced by electronic pioneer Franco Battiato. Both central figures within the Italian avant-garde, they were part of a generation of artists who contributed to a radical rethinking of musical practices and composition. They reveal Minimalism as it's rarely known: with delicate melodies, subtle harmonic interplay and incorporating diverse creative traditions - slowly giving way to an ever-expanding open space. Skirting the outer edges of ambient, new age and experimental music, the LP has a transformative beauty unlike anything else.

Review: This is what happens when acclaimed Los Angeline harpist Mary Lattimore enlists Slowdive's Neil Halstead fo production duties. A lush, and liquid listening experience that is as graceful as it is confident, blurring the lines between classical and ambient in a way that seems to echo centuries of traditional, almost Medieval tones and contemporary electronic adventures alike.

Lattimore's work has previously been described in terms of 'dreamscapes', and few have been painted more vividly than Silver Ladders. These are deep dive arrangements that expand and contract like breathing, allowing the artist's signature instrument to shine while submerging it in swells of refrain. Movement is constant, and yet the record feels mill pond still. Hardly par for the course, even in the fertile sonic ground she works in. Step inside and prepare to be captivated.

Review: Three years ago, Giuseppe Tillieci and Filippo Scorcucchi joined forces as LF58 for a debut EP of blissful ambient epics on Auxiliary that arguably didn't get the coverage its quality deserved. We have a sneaking feeling that the pair's debut album, which lands on the fantastic Astral Industries imprint, won't go unnoticed. For starters, it's brilliant, with the four lengthy tracks seeing them drift between Global Communication/Irresistible Force style melodic positivity (the hazy effects, huggable pads and echoing melodies of "Iniziazione"), ultra-deep, psychedelic dub techno ("Rituale", where simple melodic refrains wind in and out of sparse but hypnotic beats), swelling tropical ambient warmth with added deep space effects ("Metamorfosi") and the kind of languid, slow-motion fare that sits somewhere between Pete Namlook and Spacetime Continuum (side D suite "Evocazione/Contatto/Risveglio").

Review: Ross Gentry makes an impressive debut on the Polar Seas label with an album of ambient inspired by " inspired by two monumental works of modern fiction, Tom Perrotta's 'The Leftovers' and Don Dellilo's 'White Noise'." As such, the music explores human tensions and existential dread, with ominous dories layered over creeping found sounds. Shards of synth light break through the cloud atmospheres to bring light relief on 'Nobody Wants to be Here' while the edgy string sounds (performed by Emmalee Hunnicutt), lo-fi crackle and sustained pads of 'Midway' keep you in a state of unease throughout. This is a beautiful troubled album for similarly troubling times.

Review: MIF, or Manchester International Festival, has been considered a seal of quality since its inception back in 2007. A biennial dedicated to showcasing world premieres, it's the place Damon Albarn first unveiled his epic Monkey: Journey To The West before the acclaimed spectacular went global, where Bjork presented Biophilia and the fantastic instruments she created to realise that vision, and the location of Skepta's science fiction warehouse rave, Dystopia987, among other landmark shows.

2019's edition featured Invisible Cities, a sparkling new adaptation of Italo Calvino's 1972 novel of the same name. Stars of the Lid founder Adam Wiltzie and L.A. composer Dustin O'Halloran were commissioned to score the action on stage, and now two years later their soundtrack is ready to own. At times majestic and rousing, in other moments tense and poised, but all breathtakingly beautiful contemporary classical fare, we highly recommend.

Review: You may not be familiar with avant-garde composer Valentina Goncharova, but this incredible collection of rare home recordings is enough to answer any questions you might have as to how mind-blowing her work is. The sort of artist who needs to flee the Leningrad Conservatoire in order to have the space and freedom to fully explore ideas. Combining elements of musique concrete, drone, ambient and a kind of lo-fi classical, this is an expression of place - sanctuary of the home - and its ability to offer protection from creative oppressors. Using vocal mantras, curious refrains, amplified and distorted strings (cello in particular), you really get a sense of not only the where but the how behind these arrangements. Hushed but dense, they draw the listener in with surprising speed, so before you know it you're right there in that domestic studio watching a genius at work.

Review: Parisian sound artist Jonathan Fitoussi resides in Paris. He works on minimalist and contemporary musical forms, with solo works in recent years having explored a fusion of electronic ?and acoustic sounds with melodic textures, colours and emotions. On his latest release titled Music For Xavier Veilhan, it features 'Music for Les Rayons (Sarus) (2016)' which was created for a sculpture by the named artist. It is defined by its blissful and hypnotic melody against a backdrop of glistening ambient drones. On the flip, we have a more cinematic sonic excursion in the form of "Music for Mutant Stage 8 (2017)" created for a film by Veilhan with Marie-Agnees Gillot & Dimitri Chamblas, which will captivate you with its delicate tapestry of chimes.

Review: Burnski's Instinct alias has given rise to two full-length albums and a swathe of EPs in just the past two years alone, and now he's heralding spring with the launch of a new label, Abyla, and his most delicate, ambient record to date. Happening is a far cry from what you might know of Burnski or indeed the Instinct project overall, focusing as it does on orchestral ambience with a preference for plaintive piano lines at the front of the mix and ample drone matter backing it up. These short vignettes glide between moods, hovering in moments of tender minimalism or bursting with effervescence depending on the situation.

Review: Tangerine Dream's sequencer-driven work may not feel quite so groundbreaking today, although it certainly has aged incredibly well. But you should take Phaedra, the first album entry in the band's back catalogue to fully realise that idea, as proof of the fact it was. Released in 1974, it's amazingly hard to distinguish between the opening title track and the synth arpeggiation you find in techno or ambient today, setting the bar for what is to follow.

In many ways you can trace so much of the last 30 years of dance music back to this era, if not this specific album, albeit it was light years ahead of its time. Perhaps what's most remarkable, though, is that far from crude noises that have since been refined for the more mainstream electronic world, much of what's here stands up to contemporary electronica in an exploratory, genre-melding, sound-art way. Basically, it's essential.

Review: B12's 1993 debut album, Electro-Soma, has long been regarded as one of intelligent dance music's "must-have releases". Offering a decidedly intergalactic blend of otherworldly techno, ambient and deep space electronica, it remains a brilliant piece of work. Here, Warp Records give it the reissue treatment, packaging the peerless original album with a second disc of early B12 rarities and hard-to-find cuts recorded during the same period. There's naturally plenty to admire on this bonus disc, from the shimmering electro bustle of "Transient Pathways" and Motor City futurism of "Debris", to the intoxicating ambient brilliance of "Go With The Hiss". That this material is every bit as good as the tracks included on Electro-Soma is testament to the (then) duo's rarely matched brilliance.
