Ed who?, you may very well ask, just like I did. Planet Mu doesn't
reveal much more than that Lawes is a 'Birmingham-based musician &
contemporary composer' and 'he divides the works between 'pieces'
(generally scored for or improvised on more traditional instruments)
and 'tracks' (which can be generalised as more computer-based or
electroacoustic works)'. The pieces include studies for violin,
double bass & tenor

Having appeared on more labels than anyone cares to count, Eight Frozen Modules are back with another great slice of sped up dancehall magic. Echoyouth's old school synth rhythms and ragga MCing work perfectly together, while Sight Code Unseen's stop start bassline creates a fever pitch frenzy of electronic beats. Another nugget of solid gold on Planet Mu.

A madcap DSP-fuelled joyride through ragga demolitions is programmed by American electronic misfit Ken Gibson (AKA 8FM). Whether carving up acapellas, launching Elephant Man into silicon space like a helium-pumped lunatic, or overdriving the boom-boom-bap of dancehall. Gibson succeeds in finding his own deranged voice.
