HELM (UK, PAN RECORDS)
TROPA MACACA (PT, SOFTWARE RECORDS)
SLEEK MINK (DK)
Records Played By: Foom, Snoid & Toby Paul,
The return of Club 4 Reel! Once again it's line-up of diverse and exciting live electronic acts from all over the place....
HELM is Luke Younger - a sound artist and experimental musician based in London, working with a vast array of revolving instrumentation and abstract sound sources. His last LP, Impossible Symmetry (released in 2012 on Berlin's excellent Pan Records) found it's way to many of the electronic communities 'best of' lists for last year and glowing reviews all over the place. Helm's compositions build a dense aural landscape that touches on musique concrete, uncomfortable sound poetry, noise, and hallucinatory drones. His sound is steered through a melange of fringe territories: glacial drone meditations, reconfigured gamelan clusters, and howling walls of organized feedback, all coalesced in a post-industrial fashion with a commitment to homemade exploratory zeal. For the past ten years, Younger has also performed extensively in Europe and the US with Steven Warwick (Heatsick) as pioneering avant-drone duo Birds of Delay. He also runs the excellent Alter records.
Here is some music that Helm likes: http://www.thewire.co.uk/audio/tracks/listen-to-an-exclusive-helm-mix
TROPA MACACA are the ambient-noise duo of André Abel and Joana Da Conceição and have been going strong from their Portuguese home base since 2005. They've lunged out into the world with releases on established labels such as Qbico and Siltbreeze. Their recently released Ectoplasma on Software Records (the sub-label of mexican summer owned by Onehotrix point never’s dan lopatin) and has been described by dummy magazine as “(...) a lesson in pure sound design as potent as SND or Aaron Dilloway, yet filled with an unctuous listenability, a primordial, glowing slime that’s as addictive yet stately as the best in it's genre". Don't you just love journalists?

HYPERBANG : a film and music experimental performance Life performed by :
Gaelle Rouard : 16mm projector
and an active member of the MTK laboratory in Grenoble
Christophe Cardoen : homemade light devices
both Gaelle & Christophe of Cube Metamkine
David Chiesa : electric piano frame and electric bass
During the performance, Gaelle Rouard and Christophe Cardoen give emphasis both to light and film, using their handmade machine to cut through the rays better than a stroboscope. While this is happening, David Chiesa strikes the amplified strings.
A fiction / friction that goes back to the origins of time, an age where chaos feeds on sound and light. The lengthy process of transformation is beginning, hard, bright lights swallow the visions, and some mountain climbers.
The rhythm intensifies as the sound and the lights grow, blinding, the plot thickens in mystery. The characters struggle in a dense, hypnotic mass. And like the centipede and the cephalopod ( simple creatures from a bygone era ), they struggle for survival, and yearn for breath. Without overdoing it, at the origin of kinetic art, with photons, chemistry and sound…...

DIMINISHED MEN (USA, Abduction Records)
By distorting hard boiled film and classic instrumental music through a dark, overcast lens, Diminished Men refocus their influences into something entirely unique. Their jagged, hard-charging approach evokes images of slit jugulars and accelerated heart rates, all the while swathing you in a blissful claustrophobia. Drawing elements of Link Wray, Morricone's dissonant horror scores, gritty noir and Joe Meek's sickly productions, as well as the provocative imagery of filmmakers like Wim Wenders and Jean-Pierre Melville, synthesizing them into something truly organic and original.
"Capnomancy" (Jan 2013), their second release on Abduction Records, run by Alan Bishop of the legendary Sun City Girls and the Sublime Frequencies label, is a collection of stark instrumentals, full of high tension energy and infected terror. Cloaked in a supernatural fog and electrical storms, chiaroscuro landscapes read like a sci-fi postcard with a Giallo ransom note attached. One of the last albums to be recorded at his now defunct Aleph Studio, producer Randall Dunn (Sunn O))), Earth, Wolves in the Throne Room, etc.) contributes greatly with his visceral, heavy production, making this album their darkest offering yet.
Their first full length "Names of the Dead" from 2005 introduced the bands cinema obscura ethos. A bizarre series of cassettes 2006-2008 "American Volume Swells" and the more recent 2011 "Six O' Clock Baby" album revealed a raw and unchecked side of the band through live recordings, improvisations and collage. It was their 2009 "Shadow Instrumentals" record on the Abduction label that got the band wider recognition for their creative and distinctive sound. A superbly crafted mosaic of speakeasy hallucinations and haunted geography, full of lush production and ambitious arrangements. Besides the Italian western overtones, Khorshid Egyptian guitar passages, murder-blues drama and flipped out electronic space psych, are perhaps the best surf inspired tracks in years. A shape-shifting set of music, opening yet another wormhole to the groups varied influences.
Formed in 2005 by guitarist Steve Schmitt and drummer Dave Abramson, Diminished Men are an integral part of Seattle's unique and prolific underground music scene. Abramson, also a member of Master Musicians of Bukkake, has done time in Climax Golden Twins and has collaborated with Secret Chiefs 3, Eyvind Kang, Six Organs of Admittance, Grails, etc. Multi-instrumentalist Simon Henneman has released two solo records and plays guitar in the free jazz duo WA with iconic Northwest drummer Gregg Keplinger.
