The collisions between approaches, ages, and genres has always made for an interesting five days, and this year’s installment, which runs from May 29th to June 2nd, looks to be no different. LWE selected our picks for this year’s edition here.
If You’re Reading This is MGUN’s second effort for London imprint Don’t Be Afraid, and like its predecessor, The Upstairs Apt., it shows Gonzales’s more accessible side.
Darren Cunningham has long acknowledged Detroit minimalist Terrence Dixon as an influence on his work as Actress, but it has taken years for the two to actually appear on a record together.
The Boat Party, Kyle Hall’s first full-length, offers him a chance to consolidate the assorted aspects of the sound he’s been developing since 2007.
Willie Burns and Entro Senestre debut their collaboration as Daywalker + CF on L.I.E.S. on the almost humorously titled, You Only Live Once.
The roving sounds of Tazz come to rest once again on Adam Marshall’s New Kanada label for Science Friction, which includes a Presk remix.
“Bourbon Skies” for the much hyped Russian label ARMA hesitantly builds on Area’s reputation, with a pair of heavyweight remixers (DJ Sprinkles and Vakula) in tow.
The Aim label seems like a natural match for Flori’s sound — his take on deep house is usually subtle and prizes sound design over giant hooks.
Into The Light: A Journey Into Greek Electronic Music, Classics & Rarities (1978-1991) is a rare bird that unfurls like a Mancuso-style DJ mix in a range of styles and years.
Anom Vitruv packs an abundance of ideas into a small space, and does so with grace on this new, untitled 7″.
This untitled, self-released white label is an unassuming response to all the anticipation looming behind New York upstart Anthony Naples.
For LWE’s second year-end column, staff writer Steve Kerr rounds up the five most essential imprints of 2012.
The original Radioactive Orchestra tracks, by The ZZZZZ and Abdulla Rashim, are the fruits of a “scientific musical translator,” and come backed with Âme and Jonsson/Alter remixes.
Movement, Holly Herndon’s debut LP, is a diverse but brief collection, underlined by the artist’s manipulation of vocals using Max/MSP.
Arriving just a year after Christopher Rau’s debut LP, Two follows its predecessor in breeziness, but with markedly less success.
Quickly named an artist to watch based on records for Astro:Dynamics and left_blank, Vessel joined the hyper focused Tri Angle records for his full-length debut and absorbed some of it sound.
This week’s download is an aperitif to Anaxander’s solo EP for the Pittsburgh-based Love What You Feel imprint.
STL’s first two contributions to Smallvile were incredible refinements of his somber, druggy sound, and his latest, Flying Saucer Attack, offers its own eccentric beatdown house sound.
A Process, Portable’s debut for Live At Robert Johnson, is more a return to previous motifs than a major push forward.
