Aeriae presents Victris

Posted on 24th October 2014 by Brett Caporn (LRRecords) in electronica,music,Netlabels We Like,release promo - Tags: , ,

CA043 on Clan Analogue Recordings

Clan Analogue’s latest release, Aeriae‘s second album Victris, has been quietly making its mark as a modern IDM gem in the Australian electronic music soundscape.


A thirteen-page booklet by Wade Clarke (aka Aeriae) with notes on the inspiration and techniques behind each of Victris’s tracks, can be downloaded at aeriae.com/victris.pdf


Ambitious in texture, programming and melodic design, Victris explores the modern sonic parameters of electronica through the prism of deep historical insight into music, production and technology. With Bach-influenced melodic counterpoint, Spector-inspired mono mixes for discipline and impact, and the use of sonic detritus from the world of obsolete technology, colliding concepts of sound have been reconfigured for new expression in the modern digital age.


Aeriae is Sydney-based electronic composer and producer Wade Clarke. His grandfather was an engineer and almost-concert pianist, and Wade grew up playing the piano by ear. Aeriae’s novel aesthetic is informed as much by Warp figureheads like Autechre as by classical music and 80s electronic film scores like Tron and Escape From New York. Wade’s other involvements include writing, reviewing, Interactive Fiction, illustration and the Apple II.


Victris is available through MGM Distribution in CD and non-physical formats from usual sources. Witness Aeriae’s controllerism live in action at his Melbourne performance at Forgotten Worlds on Saturday November 15th.

Sgt Remo Releases Brand New Album

Posted on 15th October 2014 by Brett Caporn (LRRecords) in music,reggae,release promo - Tags: , ,


Give Thanks for Life – Sgt. Remo

Jah Yutes Entertainment (JYE) releases Sgt Remo’s album Give Thanks for Life recorded at JYE studios. This album includes 13 brand new tracks featuring guest appearances by General Smiley, Mikey Wild, Don Goliath, and Jah Melik. The first Official Video from the album titled I’m Free was released on July 26. A second Official Video of the song Survival of the Fittest is scheduled to premiere on November, 2014. This album is the follow up to the highly successful EP Life is for Living which helped plant his name on the reggae music landscape. The album features production by long time Sgt Remo collaborator Pedro Hernandez from EA Productions (St. Petersburg, FL) and an array of producers from around the world. Sgt Remo is known for working with a diverse production team and this album is no exception with guest producers from Japan, Mexico, Spain, Chile, Peru, Jamaica, and the U.S.

“I’m Free” is a song about mental liberation and shedding the preconceived notions that often divides us as people, with Remo voicing the sentiment “Every man born free from bondage, every man born free from violence. Everyone wants to live their life well, so teach them good and don’t bad mind them.” The video for this single has received a strong response and continues to build an audience. One of the highlights of the album is the title track Give Thanks for Life urging the celebration of life’s blessings that are oftentimes taken for granted. Sgt Remo penned the song after experiencing his daughter’s battle with cancer which she triumphantly defeated. “Give thanks for life, give thanks for joy, give thanks for the opportunity to live my life.” He champions all women in this song acknowledging the hardships they experience as mothers, often being single parents. He states “give thanks for mama, set the rule and the order. Without a father, she is the mama and the dada.” The song was produced by Spain’s Rey JahB Estudio.

Other highlights in the album include the provocative Survival of the Fittest and Babylon is Burning. Survival of the Fittest is a highly energetic song voicing the frustrations of poor communities around the world rallying the people to “stand tall, all my warriors stand tall. Stand tall, make them know Jah we a call.” Another notable song is Make a Change, an inspirational collaboration featuring reggae dancehall pioneer General Smiley from the Michigan & Smiley duo. Smiley sings a captivating chorus while Sgt Remo delivers some rich vocals on this song about making a positive change in our lives. General Smiley is also featured inIt’s All Been Said. This roots reggae track was masterfully produced by Peru’s La Chakra Records. Remo gives praises to the elders reminding us about their extensive, but often forgotten, contributions singing “it’s all been said, it’s all been done. I man just here, trying to live like them.”

Sgt Remo teams up with Germany’s producer/artist Don Goliath and veteran Bermuda artist Mikey Wild on the roots step Call on Jah skirting the realms of electronic music.  Remo Rankin delivers a rapid delivery on the very danceable remake of the Ride Your Donkey riddim of the late 60’s, this one titled Donkey riddim produced by Mexico City’s TnT Music and Cuartito de a Jah. Sound System is a big up to the sound system culture which has been fundamental in Sgt Remo’s career. My Light and Salvation is a combination song with Japanese Rasta chanter Jah Melik. One Life to Live and Road of Corruption round off the album with some great instrumental versions produced by Josh Mundahl and Nigel Burrell (Firehouse Crew, Jamaica) and Mexico’s Dub Command respectively. Sgt Remo delivers some great vocals and lyrics on these two roots anthems.

All Radio, DJ’s, Press, and other Media wishing to receive a promotional copy of the album are highly encouraged to contact sgt.remo@gmail.com.

SCUBA - Phenix 3 (Front Cover)
PNX003DS 1
6 October, 2014

The Phenix trilogy of releases from Scuba ends here with a final four-track release, and looking back over the series as a whole you might think perhaps the Hotflush boss was using it as a platform to explore his next comprehensive move. The four tracks here work in a subtle narrative arc, commencing with the restrained minimalist sound design of “Silence” before Scuba eases up the tempo across the tracks that close the A-side and open the B-side. “Nineteen Eighty” is dub techno at its most weightless, whilst “Plateau” may prove to be the most melodically enriching Scuba production in some time. The appropriately titled “Fade” brings the curtain down on Phenix in somewhat contemplative mood, leaving the question of where Paul Rose goes next…

…and this ‘rascal recommends’ this little numba too! :)

RUSHMORE - Dance Show EP (Front Cover)
6 October, 2014

There’s nothing subtle about the work out London-based DJ and all-round man of mystery Rushmore. This third EP – his first for DJ Haus’ Hot Haus imprint – continues in a similar vein to his first two outings for Trax Couture. That means a tough, raw blend of ghetto-tech, revivalist acid house, footwork and sub-bothering bass-house. Choose between the jacking rhythms, thunderous kick drums and Armando-ish rave stabs of “Dance Show” and “Drop Top”, a cracking, in-your-face DJ tool built around footwork style handclaps, warped sub-bass and relentless drum machine cymbals. Neither track is particularly clever, but both are most certainly big.

….and another:

Always at the top of the pecking order for apocalyptic producer-MC combos, Kode 9 and The Spaceape are back in action once again and sounding as visceral as ever. “Chasing A Beast” suggests a change in stance for the pair, with Kode 9 working a cheekily swaying groove and Spaceape delivering a slightly less baritone, mildly Americanised flow. It’s still as dark as ever, but “Devil Is A Liar” too shows a lighter, more limber approach to the finished product, not so leaden in British urban dread. The minimalism reaches a peak on “Heart” with its slithering smatterings of trap and plush chords, while Spaceape rips the human condition to shreds, and the later into the EP you go the more adventurous the tracks become. It’s a fresh approach that will keep the fans on their toes while proving this is a pair that will never rest on their laurels.

Hi Permies,

There is a great free event coming up called ‘Groat Street Festival’ on the 25th October, I guess its a bit like Hulbert St was for Freo.

You can see the workshops and timetables alone are a great opportunity but there is also 40 plus stalls, sustainability, up-cycling, craft, community gardens and transition towns, food, and kids fun.
It will be a great ‘old fashion’ community event the way town fairs used to be.

We would love you to come along, share the poster wide and spread the news, or if you are able volunteer some time to help it run smoothly.
There are many roles of varying levels of knowledge required, something for everyone.
