    Sunken Foal - Fermented Condiments

    'Fermented Condiments' introduces Duncan Murphy and a list of guest artists with the piquant strings and tumbling piano lines of 'Triplehorn' before introducing treated drum breaks and skilled manipulations to call to mind Tunng jamming with Daedelus. 'Retract' is a blatant Autechre homage, albeit with some seriously lush string treatments, but the beat is pure Ae and all the better for it. 'Folic Abandon' continues the theme of skilled orchestrations

They brand this as "Venetian Snares' 332nd official studio album of disgusting ejacutronic rave horn", adding that "over 20 people were harmed in the making of this record". Perhaps dabbling more explicitly in proto-jungle, early breakcore and rave than some of Aaron Funk's more ambitious productions, this latest album sticks to its Amen break roots

    Planet Mu advance into the inviting world of Skwee with a full length Skwee eL Pee from Finland's Eero Johannes. For those unfamiliar with Skwee, it's basically a lo-fi and quite tongue-in-cheek style of synth pop indiginous to the peoples of Scandinavia, with practitioners and producers ranging from The Knife through to DMX Krew or Mesak. As far as i'm aware (feel free to correct me) this is the first full album of Skwee music recieving a domestic release
