025 / Heskin Radiophonic: Wait For No Man

Wait For No Man is inspired by the sensation of standing on a beach, watching the waves crashing and breaking mere feet away and the combination of strength, beauty, destructive power and the slow passage of time. It captures these sensations through a series of drone based tracks, featuring subtle melodic patterns, delicate guitar work and glitchy percussion.

024 / Gross Prophet: Ethic

Gross Prophet returns to Fwonk* with a second EP of intense glitchery, square wave synths and pounding beats, bringing to mind the works of Aphex Twin or Kid 606. The beats stay arhythmic and the production is crisp, distorted and off kilter in all the right places.

023 / Echosonic: Gauze

More laptop experimentation from echosonic, this mini album includes material from a number of sessions pieced together into a series of tracks incorporating drifting washes of noise and haunting melodies. With trademark ambient drone tracks and glitch-inspired electronica, Gauze blurs the boundaries between these diverse fragments of sound. These are themselves twisted into a maelstrom of murmurs, scratchy microrhythms and time and pitch-stretched harmonics sent spiraling around the listener’s head.

021 / Katarrhaktes: No Future

Katarrhatkes takes music and makes noise. This collection of remixes weaves the unexpected sources with his own brand of pure sonic mayhem, to create unrecognisable choral drones, noise avalanches and cavernous chambers of sound.

020 / Errorhythm: 1996

Errorhythm’s first release is a culmination of the last 2 or 3 years of their live sets and bedroom noodlings. Mostly what they describe as “the more successful” of their experiments in both working on electronic music, and also of working together. Bohemian in terms of genre – but made cohesive in general feel and mood – it dabbles in dubstep, industrial and lo-fi electronica, but all clearly stamped with their unique style.

This EP is an excellent display of their versatility, both in songwriting and production. A good mix of party tracks and “listen to on the bus to make you feel better when surrounded by arseholes” tracks.

019 / Total Cult: Boom Bap

As Oscar Wilde once famously observed: “It’s on like Donkey Kong, yo. Time to kick it old-school.” tOtALcULt and the Womble-Sound Orchestra present an album of cut-and-paste funk, trip hop and breakbeat music. Fusing influences from electro, drum n bass, bigbeat, disco, dub and hip hop, ‘Boom Bap’ takes you on a toe-tapping, booty-shaking trip to Funky Town. This ultra-rare Japanese import version of the album includes the tOtALcULt remix of Kerry and Casio’s old skool stepper ‘B-Girl Original’.

017 / V/A: Blinding Flesh Of Genius

In the late summer of 2008 the artistic and always cutting-edge members of Fwonk* (then Blinding Flesh of Genius) got together to produce a collection of some of the most contemporary tunes you’re likely to hear this year. No rules, except one: ‘make it good, make it interesting’. Mixed and mastered by the very capable echosonic, all aspects of Volume One have been sculpted carefully and communally, including the tracklisting and artwork, and represent the Blinding Flesh ethos of member involvement and high expectations. All of which makes this a highly original piece of work and one not to missed. Download and enjoy now!

016 / Gross Prophet: Protero

The Protero EP from Gross Prophet is alive with sound – drums looping in on themselves, eating themselves and spewing out the remains. With full-on glitches, stutters, bass squelches and distorted synths, Protero is not for the faint hearted.
