Earlier this year, prolific UK producer and DJ Paul Woolford unleashed a fresh nom de guerre onto the music scene. Though his better-known alias may still be Bobby Peru, Special Request’s March vinyl-only release, Lolita (Warehouse Mix), has done sufficient damage to render this limitless and energetic new moniker bound to the consciousness. As the title suggests, this is warehouse-appropriate party-fodder, but with a bassline so playful it’s addictive, it comes with mood-enhancement guaranteed.
Available from Phonica Records.

Released today and marking the artist’s debut on Berlin’s 50 Weapons, Shed’s confidently-titled third album, The Killer, looks set to capitalise on its audio-murderous intent. Stalking you like a stealthy techno assassin, I Come By Night is the third track on this consistent release and my pick for its delicious darkness, weight, and haunting synth floatation. Absolutely merciless.
Available to download at 50 Weapons.

Hello. I’ve made an 8tracks dedicated to some of the electronic music which has, over the years, given me the Poe-style tears, both directly and indirectly. We shall know it as TEC_TONICS, because it’s important to feel overwhelmed by beauty from time to time, I think.
Kubrick’s Space Odyssey is, of course, the imagery, partly because astronauts are probably the most iconic visual synonymous with the scientific endeavours and achievements of mankind, and partly because HAL broke my heart (“Daisy, Daisy…”) Also, I was lucky enough to see it at London’s Royal Festival Hall last year with live performances by the Philharmonia Orchestra and Philharmonia Voices, which only served to underscore what a flawless accomplishment it was. I cried my eyes out the second it started, and the fear of never experiencing anything close to it again has left me on a beauty-comedown ever since. Anyway, for your listening (dis)pleasure…

Recently released on the ever-pleasing Awkward Movements label is Semtek’s latest output, Bento. The London-based producer and founder of label Don’t Be Afraid has delivered another round of his idiosyncratic tech house sound with this anticipated track.
Accompanying Semtek’s release is Scott Fraser’s Decompression Dub remix, which sees the producer end his hiatus with the kind of audio assault that’s so deliciously relentless as to make us truly thankful he did. Pushing a near-obscene level of gratuitous bass, this stand-alone variation sees the Wave/Black Nation artist return in stellar sonic form.
Shamelessly filthy and yours to download now at Juno.

Carefully compiled by myself, ELECTR_ODE_ is my 9-track 8tracks which, as the title suggests, is an ode to electronic music, and you can listen to it here: http://8tracks.com/fiwilson/electr_ode_
Know, reader, that due to licensing balls the order will only be as intended once per person, after that it’ll be rendered unto the fate we know as randomised plays, though this will doubtless be an irritation to nobody but myself. Enjoy!
