LWE’s Top 5 Labels of 2012

For LWE’s second year-end column, staff writer Steve Kerr rounds up the five most essential imprints of 2012.

Two Dogs In A House, Eliminator

Reviving Two Dogs In A House, members Ron Morelli and Jason Letkiewicz present a monstrous odyssey of house/noise cross-pollination, raw machine funk and ominous soundscapes.

Bad News, Real Bad News

Label head Ron Morelli teams up with fellow New Yorker Lee Douglas as Bad News for a couple of brutalist drum-machine workouts on Real Bad News.

Torn Hawk, Tarifa

The four tracks on Torn Hawk’s debut, Tarifa, resemble soundtrack work and stand in contrast to the L.I.E.S’ more dance floor-oriented releases.

Simoncino, Dreams EP

Simoncino’s Dreams EP for Ron Morelli’s L.I.E.S. imprint, although at times showing some flair, fails to stand up alongside much of his other work.

Jahiliyya Fields, Unicursal Hexagram

L.I.E.S. continues to move further from the house bins with its longest release to date, the intense synthesizer music of Jahiliyya Fields’ 2×12″ Unicursal Hexagram.

Unknown artist, L.I.E.S 010.5

L.I.E.S. continues to flush out and introduce exciting new talents to the world, leaving L.I.E.S. 10.5 in the hands of an unknown artist who may or may not be Legowelt.

Talking Shopcast with Long Island Electrical Systems (L.I.E.S)

Long Island Electrical Systems (L.I.E.S.) is exemplary of the private press label renaissance of recent years. LWE sat down with Morelli to discuss the label’s prolific last year and future plans, his straightforward A&R choices, and his feelings on New York’s contemporary club scene. He also contributed Talking Shopcast 15, an effortlessly diverse and eminently replayable mix recorded before his shift at A1 Records.

Vapauteen, L.I.E.S. 008.5

L.I.E.S. adds New Yorker Shawn O’Sullivan under his Vapauteen moniker to their growing roster of seemingly fresh-faced producers who sound like they’ve been at it for years.

SvengalisGhost, Mind Control

With Mind Control, L.I.E.S. continues to showcase labelhead Ron Morelli’s propensity for making the most of previously unknown producers.
