Rainy Dub
Rainy Dub (12")
Cat: HJP 61. Rel: 30 Nov 11
Techno
  1. Rainy Dub
  2. Faceless
Review: Honest Jon's present this sonically challenging but quite excellent twelve inch from Actress, allowing us the chance to indulge in his quite singular vision via some long overdue original material ahead of a forthcoming third album slated to appear in the spring of next year on the West London imprint. Always a musician who prefers to keep his captive audience guessing, it would be churlish to presume how that forthcoming album may sound on the basis of "Rainy Dub" and "Faceless", as neither will be present on it. However, there is plenty to admire here, with the lead track described quite presciently by the label as the "alien son of Sleng Teng". Just like that riddim pioneered a new wave of digital dancehall when Wayne Smith joined forces with King Jammy on "Under Me Sleng Teng", "Rainy Dub" seems to signify a concentrated shift in Cunningham's focus towards ever new jagged dissections through the fuzziest extremes of sub bass. Minute attention to detail such as the near indecipherable vocal gurgles trapped far beneath ensure you keep returning to the track, as new sonic elements come to light. "Faceless" creeps towards you like second album highlight "Purple Splazsh" regurgitated through a robotic variant of the human centipede, with the track's hazy melodic elements desperately trying to claw through the claustrophobic rhythms, creeping corroded textures and rising gurgles of stomach acid.

Review: "It's like painting with button and sliders... Melting and dripping, seeping yourself liquid into the machinery." So said Darren Cunningham when discussing the creation of R.I.P, his long awaited follow up to Splazsh. It's a compelling image that works in practice too. R.I.P creates microcosmic sound worlds within each track: "Holy Water" for instance tumbles in on itself in a melange of shimmering sinewave droplets, while the pitchshifted waves of "Tree Of Knowledge" seem to inhale and exhale like a living being, crumpling inwards on itself to repeat the same motion ad infinitum. And although it uses much the same, occasionally abrasive sonic building blocks as Cunningham's been developing for many years, the pastoral tones of "Uriel's Black Harp" and the Alva Noto styles of "Jardin" make R.I.P a surprisingly graceful album. It may not be techno as many will know it, but Cunningham has never made techno in the traditional sense anyway - and it's clear on listening to R.I.P that he's only just beginning to realise the musical forms that have been swarming inside his brain for years.

  10. DJ Sotofett & Gilb'R - "97" (outro) (1:55)
Review: Serial collaborator DJ Sotofett pops up on Honest Jon's with a typically excellent doublepack built around a quartet of studio hook-ups. Aside from Versatile boss Gilb'r (here lending a helping hand on some African-influenced ambient house), most of the collaborators are new additions to the eccentric Norwegian's out-there audio universe. The two tracks with Phillip Lauer and JKS - an intergalactic ambient affair and a chunk of early Fila Brazillia style deep house - are particularly potent, while there's something deliciously warm and evocative about the Norwegian's explorations with Finn Jaakko Eino Kalevi. Best of all, though, are the two tracks with African vocalists Karlolin Tampere and Maimouna Haugen; "Nondo Riddimix", which boasts deliciously dense drums and sparse, exotic melodies, is arguably the highlight.

Review: The second Shangaan Electro/BBC remix package from Honest Jon's to arrive this week (the first featured Anthony Shake Shakir and Oni Ayhun - chec it) boasts two remixes from Mark Ernestus, the Basic Channel man with a long running affiliation to the West London label. Indeed it was Ernestus who curated the Shangaan Electro compilation for the imprint last year along with HJ's own Mark Ainley. Here he is employed to remix South African outfit BBC, with two wonderfully sparse, stripped back techno versions that bounce around your headphones in a hypnotising manner befitting of one of electronic music's most revered producers.

Review: Using the Turkish psychedelic project Insanlar as a jump off point, Honest Jon's have enlisted Ricardo Villalobos to turn out one of his grandiose remix projects that gels so naturally with more exotic sound sources. The original of "Kime Ne" is already an enchanting, Moog-infused groover rich with traditional vocals, and then Mr Villalobos locks the ingredients in for a typically cosmic ride into stripped and hypnotic house territory, letting the lutes intertwine with dusty reams of percussion using that alchemists touch that could only come the man himself. The remix spreads itself over two sides of wax, leaving one side of the double pack free for a fetching etching as well.

Review: Based in New York City and famed for his sonic experimentalism, Madteo is back with another alluring three tracker on Honest Jon's. The music is all about rugged machine funk, busted loops and lo-fi house grooves that recall the greats like Moodymann. 'Str8 Crooked' is the most loose and clattering of the lot with its knackered bassline stay down low. The amusingly titled 'Build Back Better Sweatshops' is scuffed up deep house a la STL and 'Episcopi Vagantes' is an epic 16 minute tune with spinning hi hats, wonky synthesis and plenty of cavernous soundscapes to explore at 5am on a darkened dance floor.

Review: Moritz von Oswald Trio catch up on the amount albums they've released for Honest Jon's by delivering a new and second EP for the label called Blue. It's a return to dub techno in its most purest form, which is, of course, the spacious minimalisms of mid-90s Basic Channel. Welcomingly, "Blue" is dryer than ever with a smooth groove that's peppered with caustic stabs of saw wave, while the B-side's dub version is slowed down to a 2013 synthesised version of something by dub reggae originators The Upsetters. TIP!

Review: London's mighty Honest Jon's Records - the primary home to the most obscure of African recordings - is more of an institution than a label or record shop. The imprint itself has been on fire since the early noughties thanks to a masterful selection of releases and remix series from world music outfits and contemporary electronic musicians alike. Berlin's dub techno doctor and mastering engineer, Moritz von Oswald, returns to the label with his current project, the Moritz Von Oswald Trio: Lagos icon Tony Allen takes care of the percussion, Max Loderbauer adds the electronic mystique alongside von Oswald himself, while Ricardo Villalobos takes care of the mixing duties. Well, that's quite an artillery already and as we're sure you already know, putting that lot together in a studio can only mean one thing: QUALITY. Dubby, percussive, minimalistic, psychedelic and totally recommended.

Review: Released with the minimum of fanfare, Dismantle represents Rabih Beaini's first substantial release as Morphosis since last year's Tepco Report 12", and comes in the form of a five track double 12" release for Honest Jon's The first comprises two Morphosis productions obviously aimed at more adventurous DJs, with the title track (in collaboration with Donato Dozzy) comprising subtly rattling percussion and organic tones unfolding over a steady rhythmic pulse, while "Tamrat Version" comes across as more full bodied, with thicker organ textures tied up with pulsing synths. The second 12" meanwhile is something entirely different, comprising a live score to Carl Theodor Dreyer's Vampyr recorded in Romania; free of rhythm and utilising some outlandish modular sequencing, it's the producer at his most immersive.

  3. Lanthanum (5:54)
Review: Ahead of the release of his sophomore solo full-length on Honest Jon's, the much lauded London imprint has served up this three-track teaser 12". Predictably, Mosse is in fine form, with A-side "Chilazon 1" offering a near perfect fusion of acid house wiggle, German techno hypnotism, and trippy, late night funk. "Chilazon II" offers a wilder, weirder take on the same track, with Mosse mixing up loose, broken techno rhythms, dub techno style distortion, and razor-sharp cymbal hits. Finally, the Workshop head honcho serves of "Lanthanum", where off-kilter drum machine rhythms are joined by spaced-out percussion hits, occasional dub-flecked riffs, and copious amounts of tape delay.

Deep House
  1. Flowers In May
  2. In The Water Where The City Ends
  3. Long Moon
Review: On the face of it, this is an odd culture clash, with the folksy, atmospheric pop of American singer/songwriter Simone White being given a thorough going over by Workshop+ mainstay Kassem Mosse. Yet sonically, it makes sense; Mosse is a master at eking the last drops of atmosphere from the barest of drum tracks, while White's vocals are sometimes ghostly and always beguiling. There's a clanking percussive simplicity to Mosse's spine-tingling extended interpretation of "Flowers In May", while "Long Moon" is transformed into a spaced-out ambient jazz jam. As for "In The Water Where The City Ends", it's as dreamy, evocative and soft focus as you'd expect. All three remixes show Mosse's softer side, far from the dancefloor-centric workouts he's most famous for.

Vana Vasesi (Theo Parrish remix)
  1. Manceingelani - "Vana Vasesi" (Theo Parrish remix)
  2. Zinja Hlungwani - "Ntombi Ya Mugaza" (Burnt Friedman remix)
Review: Honest Jon's continued endeavours to choose the interesting remix artists to tackle the high BPM joys of their Shangaan Electro compilation sees them turn to that venerable Detroit magician and erstwhile Wu Tang Clan member Theo Parrish. The Sound Signature boss comes through with a masterful thirteen minute plus rewiring of Mancingelani's "Vana Vasesi" which retains the thunderous tempo and brilliantly chaotic rhythms yet instils the track with a woozy, intoxicating swing via the twisting synth waves. Complementing this, iconic German producer Burnt Friedman turns in a remix of "Ntombi Ya Mugaza" by Zinja Hlungwani which is far less frenetic but no less enjoyable, flipping the track in a dub wise style with off kilter drum programming, spine tingling keys and staggered vocal affectations.

  7. Levitation
  8. Monks On The Rum
Review: Coming completely out of nowhere, this collaborative album between two of dubstep's most revered producers is not only one of this year's best examples of the genre, but some of the best dubstep to emerge since the demise of Shackleton and Appleblim's Skull Disco label in 2008. In a landscape increasingly dominated by the sounds of genre hopping post-dubstep, this album is a timely reminder of the dark spaces dubstep once inhabited; "Jellybones" for instance utilises eastern percussion manipulated to increasing degrees of mind-warping confusion, whilst "Levitation" weaves furious rhythms around radiophonic weirdness, while closer "Monks On The Rum" is a gripping exercise in tension, contrasting cut-glass percussion with a hesitant bass. But for all the structural complexity of these tracks, for example in "Rooms Within a Room", which weaves a brooding string intro and sampled choir around traditional dubstep atmospheres, the pair have never sounded so focused. Essential.

  4. Undeadman (Mordant Music remix)
Review: Not content with dropping the delirious "Deadman", Sam Shackleton offers up another must-have release in the shape of this expansive double pack. Lead cut "Fireworks" is classic Shackleton - a skittering dubstep/dub techno fusion that makes delicious use of echo-laden congas, foreboding noises and distant, Middle Eastern melodies. It's utterly spellbinding. T++ remixes, delivering a ricocheting dub take. On the second disc, Shackleton reveals "Undeadman", a kind of bizzaro universe mix of "Deadman". It's pleasingly creepy, working odd samples and strange found sound around a solid, dancefloor-friendly rhythm. Flip for an excellent remix from Mordant Music, which makes brilliant use of a live dub bassline.

Review: What do you get when you combine the enigmatic sounds of Shackleton's enchanted polyrhythms with the vocals of eccentric Italian performance artist Ernesto Tomasini? Devotional Songs, that's what. This intriguing collaboration presents itself four long playing tracks honoured with a side of vinyl each. The music itself sways from wind chimed ambient grooves and percussive tubular bells to theatrical synth pop. The D-side's "Father, You Have Left Me" is the most shamanic/demonic production on here, while "You Are The One" is a gentle, summery and cautiously upbeat affair. Like nothing else you'll hear this year, it's one for the record collection (not the hard drive) and it's an undeniable, truly singular collaboration.
