    Venetian Snares - My Downfall (Original Soundtrack)

    The joyfully/irritatingly (delete as applicable) prolific producer has made a typically swift return after March’s Pink + Green and June’s Sabbath Dubs with the release of his second classically-inspired album. My Downfall is the spiritual successor to 2005’s excellent Rossz Csillag Alatt Született, which is probably Aaron Funk’s most acclaimed work. This, on the other hand, is a release that is undeniably good, but nevertheless ranks

    Mrs Jynx - The Standoffish Cat

    Beautifully retrogressive and faithful IDM/Electronica from Manc producer Mrs Jynx aka Hannah Davidson with her debut album dutifully released through the home of IDM, Planet Mu. The first thing you will notice about Mrs Jynx's music is the remarkable similarity to classic works from Mike Paradinas, namely Tango 'n Vectif, but taken as a compliment this means Mrs Jynx has tapped into a quintessentially English well of pastoral melodies and tripped
