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.
During a two week period of fairly heavy sleep deprivation, these seven tracks came into being. Each being worked on for no more than a couple of nights, the idea was to bring you as close to a ‘live’ or ‘improvised’ selection of tracks as possible. No time to correct mistakes, no time to second guess ideas, just follow the noise and see where it leads. Where it lead was to seven generaly chilled out oddities, the tunes melodic but off kilter, crisp yet hazy.
Delicate finger picked guitar meets with sublime, etheral vocals. Soaring melodies and wistful lyrics make for gorgeous listening.
A two track single from BSMo, a post-modern bedtime story, featuring words by Joseph Alford and vocals by Bentley. Fusing ambient soundscapes with poetic story telling, New Object is a stunning sonic experiment.
Ambient, glassy pads and tight, crisp and spasmodic beats combined in a full-on electro-stew. Intelligent and gripping.
An album of dreamlike synths, glorious beats and a shimmering production. Fudgedubnofunk presents nineteen tracks of outstanding electronica.

Try to imagine what would happen if Orbital, My Bloody Valentine, Nine Inch Nails and the Chemical Brothers got locked in a studio together. The result ight sound a little like Forever Wednesday. Written over the last two years, the EP includes the track ‘Faith Unknown’, Winner of Computer Music Magazine’s ‘Tune Of The Month’ accolade: “The artist describes this as ‘Trent Reznor does Techno’ and that’s pretty much what you get. Not music you would take home to your mother, but we like it!”

A departure for Fwonk* – an album hip hop and rap by Flash – a solo project from one of the founding members of D-Rhyme Intervention. Flash has cooked together and remixed beats from several local producers including DJ No Face and Heskin Radiophonic, and layed his sizzling rhymes over the top
Ten tracks of pounding IDM, glitched out bliss and ambient textures.
In contrast to the noise of it’s companion piece, Antique Barbed Wire Symposium, Om Mani Padme Hum is a trilogy of ambient drones and soundscapes.
