Review: Past Inside The Present is pleased to announce Repetition Hymns, a double album from the enigmatic Black Swan. Comprised of 19 vignettes, the relatively short tracks impart a strong forward momentum despite the 80-minute runtime. Repetition Hymns is thus particularly well-suited to the temporal distortion of quarantine, in which each day feels like an endless repeating loop. Our bleeding hearts are in need of drone like never before. In the decade since the release of In 8 Movements, Black Swan's 2010 debut, the anonymous producer has built a reputation for his unique brand of tape-based symphonic drones. While the author behind the moniker remains hidden, Black Swan is still able to surprise and captivate. The dark symphonic deconstructions of those early works have slowly evolved, making space for lighter textures and tranquil meditations on sound, expanding the palette of tones while staying true to an identity in flux.

Review: 21 years. Twenty. One. Years. Two decades. Who knows how many days (well, we could work it out, but...) Critique our laziness if you will, it doesn't change the fact that quietly, beneath the din of a world driven mad by pandemics and politics, this is a truly momentous occasion. One of many examples why Treviso is Italy's alternative electronic music capital, this is the first LP from the city's pioneering ambient duo Cabaret du Ciel since 2000's Blue Form, and it proves worth the wait.

Of course the pair have never been ones for rushing records. Since gliding onto the scene with 1988's debut full-lengther Solarisation they have only made four albums, including this. As warm and intoxicating as it is filled with suggestions of the unknown, owing as much to the chill out rooms of raves as crystalline minimalistic contemporary classical, we recommend diving right in because the water is perfect.

Review: Debut albums don't often reach the heights of this one, which could well be a lost Boards of Canada album such is the richness of its stunning ambient electronic pallet. The mysterious Cult 48 behind the project got people despertae to find out more with this one right from the off: it's cosmically minded with its twinkling keys and lush chords, and rhythm comes from the gently tumbling drums that eventually transport you away from the here and now. Tight jazz drumming stands out on tracks like 'Slowly The Sky Turned Black' while 'On Diesel Verge' is a more textured piece that pairs light with dark.

Review: The last time time Juno and Felix K met was on Die Verachtung, another Nullpunkt Germany EP that arrived in February 2020. On the face of it, that pared-back, bordering-on experimental drum 'n' bass shares little in common with this far more abstract collection of work. But dig a little deeper and it's not just the closing dub-tech-bass-ambient closer on last year's release that foretold of this latest effort.

Skulpturen #1-4 is nothing if not left of the standard electronic playing field. There are rhythms and movements happening here, but buried deep beneath strange waves, rushes and blurs of noise - take 'Skulptur #3''s apparent recording of conversations heard on another plane of existence. Drone at its deepest, most subtle and effective, be warned: everything here will be on the throne of your mind palace before you even start to feel it settling in.

Review: For a year, in 2015, Matthew Sage (aka M. Sage) cataloged near-daily recordings made with a very narrow creative constraint; electric guitar and a few pedals, all recorded and mixed directly to cassette 4-track. Eschewing the often complex studio gadgetry and computer editing that he relies on for his primary project, Free Dust became a respite that offered room for technique to fall away and for pure expression to surface. He collected and released more than two-and-a-half hours of this material throughout the year as quarterly digital downloads; this body of work was then re-released as a double-CD in 2019 on his now-defunct label Patient Sounds. Now, Past Inside the Present presents a new collection of Free Dust material, the first proper LP for this project.

Review: Multi-instrumentalist and composer Naliah Hunter's debut, 'Spells', is a much-needed slice of ambient fantasy. The project began as an "exercise in reclamation" over her own musical motivations, and resulted in a 6-track ritual in which each piece represents a different kind of magic spell.

Like protective water, air and fire charms, Hunter takes on many incantatory roles. She is a vocalist, harpist, and synth player. Her harp, in particular, takes centre stage; the calming wind spell 'Quiet Light', for example, is an embellishment of scale flourishes and dangling chimes.

Hunter likens her studio to an altar, taking ritualistic care to light candles and incense while creating. Like the track 'Talisman' - with sprinklings of midrange tones, relieved breaths and interpretive semi-lyrics - her music is intended for healing. A chunk of the album's proceeds are being given to the Loveland Foundation, which provides therapy for young black women.

Like beautiful but dissolving memories, every track fades out only after around two minutes, like the effusive wispiness of an apprentice wizard's practice. Speaking to KEXP, Hunter noted that her 'spells' had the express purpose of "creating locations away from here"; they are specifically "transportation spells". Fantasy has always been a genre of escape; like a timid fairy or Harry Potter snitch, the EP flits past in a wonderful plume of magic smoke.

Review: With membership rights to a number of different bands and outfits, Jonna Karanka's reputation in the 21st Century Finnish underground is well established to say the least. Now this collaborative but solo-led project - which also features the likes of Jan Anderzen, Tsemba and Lau Nau - looks set to cement that status further with yet another evocative body of strange pop-psyche-ambient that seems to have landed from another planet.

At times it feels like you're knee deep in some alien jungle the arrangement is so textured, natural and organic ('Ihmispennnut', or 'Summer'). In other moments it seems to glint with the sheen of crisp modernity in moonlight ('All Nighter'), before darting off into more exotic aural adventures. A work of real imagination and vision, to say the least.

Review: Route-8 is a Budapest producer and this is his much anticipated debut LP. But the story is that it almost didn't happen because the original album was lost when the artist and his fellow Lobster Theremin crew had all their stuff knocked in Detroit while on tour of the US. However Route 8 began re-piecing the record back together and thankfully here it is. It's an album of causing house and techno tunes indebted to the sound of the American mid-west. Far sighted pads, deep beats, balmy ambience are all present and correct and make this a mini classic.

Review: The latest chapter in the (ahem) storied history of Tim Story has been unveiled in the form of the very first chapter, which - thanks to the confusion and chaos of music - never saw the light of day when it was prepped for release back in 1983. Impressively, the level of attention to detail we have subsequently come to expect from the Americana electronic composer is evident from the initial bars of opener 'By A Thread', testament to his natural talent.

Refusing to date even with the 40 year wait (give or take), Threads is a spectacularly forward-thinking collection of modern classical-infused ambient, heavily reliant on deceptively powerful walls of sound masked as quiet tones - take the eerie chimes of 'The Moors' or the emotionally captivating piano chords on 'Burst', for examples. But it also embraces the drones of electronica as we know it today, hence the synth refrains of 'Without Waves'. Ahead of its time.

Review: Last year, the new beat-loving diggers behind the Musique Pour La Danse label stumbled on something rather bizarre in a second-hand shop: an erotic VHS video from 1989 whose soundtrack was a direct copy of legendary new beat LP King of The Beat, a fake 'compilation' where every sleazy, mid-tempo, mind-altering cut was in fact written and produced by the same trio of Belgian studio buffs. So, they've decided to reissue that LP as Erotiques New Beat, adding extensive liner notes from new beat scholar Geert Sermon, and pressing it to shocking neon pink vinyl. It's a fine set full of distinctively odd, druggy, acid-flecked and synth-heavy cuts, most barely known outside of new beat collector circles. It's well worth picking up.
