ZIQ022
Leafcutter John
Microcontact
Released 22-01-2001
ZIQ022_Leafcutter_Microcontact-650x650.j
Planet Mu site: https://planet.mu/re...s/microcontact/
Planet Mu store: https://planetmu.ble...hn-microcontact
Spotify: https://open.spotify...wRsK7jxupIDn4EA


John Burton, aka Leafcutter John, born in West Yorkshire, originally wanted to be a painter, and studied at Norwich School Of Art. Burton was also a songwriter, spending his spare time composing folk songs on a guitar. Them one day, he bought a PC, to type his university assignments. That’s when he discovered the possibilities of electronic music. That was four years ago…

At the time, Burton didn’t own any electronic music records, but, fortunately, some of his friends did. A crash course in contemporary artists and different forms of music later, he was ready to release a first EP, Concourse, then, a few months later, an album, on Mike Paradinas’ very own label, Planet Mu. From the intro of the first track of Microcontact, you know you’ve stumbled across something unusual. Heavily relying on machines, Burton relies even more on the inspiration he gets from environmental noises and acoustic sounds recorded in all sorts of different places or situation, or during sonic workshops he organises in art galleries. When asked about people who inspire him, Burton cites Chasm, Main or Richard D James, as well as Pierre Henry, Karlheinz Stockhausen or Pierre Schaeffer. And, listening to Microcontact, the analogy between Leafcutter John and the musique concrète movement is quite obvious. If not as remote as the music produced by any of these composers, Burton’s creations remain quite difficult to apprehend, even when he flirts with more conventional electro, as on track 9, or when traces of his past as a folk musician can be found on track 5. However, his deconstructed structures are strangely appealing. Sometimes similar to Autechre’s work (track 1, track 6), Microcontact has more connections with Mike Dred’s and Peter Green’s 1998 Virtual Farmer, in that, while it introduces a very abstract concept, the intensity of the atmospheres captured is still very much intact after the treatments are applied. Like Virtual Farmer, Microcontact is very much a human record, which interacts with the outside world as much as it does with its own, exposing in the process Burton as a very creative musician, attentive to his environment and to what he can do with it.

Microcontact is a very unusual record, even by today’s standard. While not completely unique nor uniquely original, this album is refreshing and challenging enough to put it above the rest, and to isolate Leafcutter John as an exceptional creator.

well this is a step up from Concourse... still a bit too meandering for me, but there's quite a few chunks in there that had the potential to be great tracks - untitled 9 ~2:10 is the best example of what could have been, hopefully there's more of that on Housebound Spirit

Beef Bouilion / My Sweatshirt
First in a series of limited edition 7″s on Planet Mu. New Orleans based Nicole Elmer has caused a stir on the US underground electronic scene with releases as Neutral (Mad Monkey Records) and Squab Teen (Turducken Recordings). With a sound sitting somewhere in between the beat cutup mayhem of Kid606, the detuned accoustic melting pot of Toah Dynamic and the riot grrl ethic of Huggy Bear, this is pure sleaze mashup territory….Check! Limited to 500 copies only for the world.
Nicole Elmer
She sent me a box of fucking birdseed with a tape in it. I wish people would send better bribes with their demos (hint hint). Luckily the tape was good. So she appears in our seven inch series with the wonderful “Beef Bouilion” (ZIQ021) which would fit well with her “Neutral” alias. She has 1 cd under that name “Font Translation Errors” on Mad Monkey Records, and an album under the “Squab Teen” moniker on Turducken Recordings too (from which we took “My Sweatshirt, the b-side). I think she is from New Orleans originally but I know she’s in Denver now. well that’s all I know…
Defluxion / Boarded Up Swan Entrance
Second single in Planet Mu’s new 7″ series is our debut release by this Canadian newcomer. Aaron Funk has had an amazing EP on History Of The Future and a cd album on the Isolate label. We have a collaboration album with Speedranch scheduled in a month or two which is bound to blow your socks off! In the meantime here’s a brand new couple of tracks of his unique, odd-time-signatured breakcore of the future.
Venetian Snares
I discovered this EP called “Greg hates Car Culture” as I was leafing through vinyl downstairs in Minneapolis record store “Let It Be”. It was by the intruigingly named Venetian Snares. I had already come across the “Venetian Snares” name on a web search for something or other and remembered it being such a great name. This prompted me to take the disc over to the in-store decks. I placed the needle on the record &… it was fucking awesome. So I emailed the address on the record etc etc. and here we are…
Aaron Funk is one of the most talented people making music at the moment, I just have to get all the tracks he makes. It’s an obsession. Just trust me and buy all the CDs he releases, ‘cos his shit is hardcore, taking what was drum’n’bass & breakcore totally to another level.
o9
Not much is known about the elusive o9 (pronounced oh-nine) other than he’s called Jesse Legg, he is from Gainsville, Miami and makes some mean trax. His appearance on the Schematic compilation “Lily Of The Valley” (anyone know why it’s called that?) was considered by many to be the highlight of that collection and his contribution to our seven inch series is likewise a top-notch melodic thang.

Nicole Elmer's 7" is probably my favorite of the bunch, nice slab of oddball dnb, there's a lot of personality in these 2 tracks. Made me want to check out her albums. There's plenty details to dig through on Beef Bouilion alone but I'll spare you my pseudo-Fantano descriptions . Also, she predated the shittyflute meme on My Sweatshirt

I don't to listen to VSnares' earliest stuff much, but these 2 tracks made me consider maybe I should. Or maybe it's just that it's been a while since I've listened to VSnares

o9's single I didn't care much for at all. Beat Bot is a nice tune though, but, yeah... eh

Anyone who heard the album “View” by Rom=Pari would know that there was serious talent behind it, it just needed focusing. So who better than me (don’t answer that) to pluck Tatsuya Yoshida from the obscurity of Sub Rosa to the obscurity of Planet Mu. His brother & partner in Rom=Pari, Age Yoshida has also since gone on to release on Fat-Cat and his own Notekrec label. The first album which Mr. Nothing has come up with is really a masterpiece of magnificence (Ken Hollings, The Wire) fusing pure pop ethereality and low down dirty funk (and drill’n’bass, shhh!) in equal measures. Just listen for yourself….

Venetian Snares + Speedranch

Released 12-03-2001
ZIQ028-650x650.jpg
Planet Mu site: https://planet.mu/re...-orange-things/
Planet Mu store: https://planetmu.ble...g-orange-things

Bandcamp: https://venetiansnar...g-orange-things
Spotify: https://open.spotify...RQT-Srtv2cP6MEQ


Ears pounding. Brain frying. Memory blanking. This. Hurts. Bad! Without doubt, the collaboration between Speedranch and Venetian Snares is the most violent, aggressive and loudest album to see the light in modern day 2001.
Making Orange Things is completely composed and constructed by swapping samples back and forth over ICQ, as Speedranch lives in England and Vsnares in Canada. The result isn’t any less devastating. Imagine Atari Teenage Riot. Imagine Merzbow. Now imagine Merzbow doing Atari, or vice versa. Now play a bit with the pitch, making it faster! faster! FASTER!. OK, you seem to be getting close to Making Orange Things.
Ranging between fucked up digital breakbeats (“Cheatin”, “We Hate Russell”) to noisier stuff (“Pay Me For Sex”, “Tushe Love”) to pure tekno/gabber (“Unborn Baby”) this is seriously demented stuff, at times approaching Dave Rodger’s Delta9 project but with more variation added. Vocals and samples are inspired by Jerry Springer, the artwork is very orange indeed and if you want to piss off your neighbours this is the album you MUST have.
10/10
Reviewed by Xander Hoose (Rock-E-Zine)
 
Speedranch aka Paul Richard has been experimenting with breaks, noise, illbient and sonics for well over a decade. His past is peppered with punk, noise, doom, stoner rock, glam rock, ambient, Kiss and much, much more. He has developed creative releationships with some of the most respected punk and new metal bands – The Hardons, Old Lady Driver, Isis, The Clash, etc. His most recent collaboration with Venetian Snares has smashed preconceptions and crossed boundaries; his record being played by IDM and metal kids the world over.

agree on both counts, didnt realize til fairly recently that this was his first Mu LP, quite the ballsy move. I only ever listen to this album when fairly pissed off, for some reason, it's soothing. Not that I only ever listen to VSnares/noise/harsh music when pissed off, it's just this particular album seems to fit the mood for me. Unborn Baby is also my fav track in there, though maybe the MJ bit goes on for a bit longer than it needs to

Tim Tetlow
Beauty Walks A Razor’s Edge
Released 26-03-2001
ZIQ020_TimTetlow_Beauty-650x650.jpg
Planet Mu site: https://planet.mu/re...-a-razors-edge/
Planet Mu store: https://planetmu.ble...s-a-razors-edge
Spotify: https://open.spotify...ySO2GOF4DvitjjQ


Taken from several recordings done in Bermuda and London, Tim Tetlow shows influences from the likes of Boards of Canada and Bola, or Autechre and early Aphex Twin. His persistent adaptation of surrealistic and catchy melodies that are laced with unmethodical rhythms makes Tetlow’s work majestic and rich to the senses. Every track has something that will shine a pathway of pleasant daydreams and wonderful insight. Good examples lie within tracks such as “Mind is Moving”, “Everything is Best”, “Polyphilo #2”, “Muddy Road”, “29/6/96”, and “Safety in Numbers”. “Mind is Moving” entices us with encompassing light-hearted melodics that spiral and ascend while distant pads surround and glitchy rhythms glide in their path. track three, “Everything is Best” works with melancholic chords that interlace and flow with warmer flute-like melodies and well paced rhythms. A very awesome and enchanting release that anyone who appreciates the works of Skam, boc, Bola, or Autechre should not be without. One of the very best from Planet Mu.

I first met Bermudian techno kid Tim Tetlow on the way to an Aphex gig in London. When Tim started making music & sending me cassettes I was very surprised at how it affected me. He seems to have a way with melodies and rhythm that combine in unforeseen ways. “Beauty Walks A Razor’s Edge” was compiled from several DATs worth of tunes Tim recorded while in Bermuda & London and he has more forthcoming in May as part of our singles series: “Cyrenic” (ZIQ038).

^ Great album IMO. Mind is Moving is prob my fav. Simple, classic sounds, nice melodies. It's a shame he stopped producing. I recall someone here in the forums telling me why but I don't recall the reason. Lol planet mu profile provides his linkedin page.... currently the Principal at Heliosphan Ltd. 

 

Cyrenic/And God Created Manchester is a great lil' record as well.
