After an initial rise in the world of hip-hop (self-releasing beat tapes, collaborating with rap royalty like Souls of Mischief and Hieroglyphics and producing and DJing for Joey Bada$$ and the Pro Era crew), Lee Bannon turned his attention to a more ambitious, unconventional and cause: taking influence from Goldie, Aphex Twin and the legacy of drum & bass to craft his debut LP Alternate/Endings. The album was percussively dense, somehow both raw & razor-sharp, and featured enough peaks and plummets to blow the snapback right off the expectant hip-hop head’s skull. The album garnered critical acclaim with words of praise coming from Rolling Stone, Resident Advisor, FACT, Pitchfork, The Guardian and more.

Never one to stagnate, Lee Bannon has spent 2015 further honing his skills as a hotly-tipped collaborator (working more with Joey Bada$$ and producing Mick Jenkins’ newest single), touring extensively (including a run with Trash Talk and Ratking in North America) and turning his attention once more to the studio for solo work. His sophomore LP on Ninja Tune, Pattern of Excel, again signals a movement away from the ground he’s already covered and toward his own vision of the leftfield future. Gone are the rapidfire breaks and growling basslines, replaced instead by a exploration of ambient soundscapes & drone influences.

Rather than a departure, Pattern of Excel can only be considered a continuation of Lee Bannon’s proven flexibility and commitment to innovation and progression. Few artists can say they’ve found success in so many circles yet claimed allegiance to none.

Planet Mu is a label that has always survived on its own very independent terms. For 20 years it's existed both on the fringes and in the centre of emerging electronic music, from IDM and breakcore to dubstep and grime and lately to footwork, which it took a chance on, opening it up to the world through the two Bangs & Works compilations. It also has a strong history of connecting the dots in between those genres by supporting idiosyncratic artists, from label stalwart Venetian Snares to Kuedo, Machinedrum, Boxcutter, Vex'd, Falty DL, Luke Vibert, Ital, Jlin and Mr. Mitch to name just a few.

SECOND TOUGHEST IN THE INFANTS (2015 REMASTER) (SUPER DELUXE EDITION)

$169.99 (AUD)

Originally released in March 1996, Second Toughest In The Infants is Underworld’s masterpiece. Following 1994’s groundbreaking predecessor dubnobasswithmyheadman (the record that cemented the band’s reputation as one of the UK’s most important dance acts), Second Toughest… was the point they forged out alone, in turn creating some of the most forward thinking electronic music this country has ever produced.

DAY IS MY ENEMY, THE (2LP VINYL)

The city at night talks through drones and chaos. The hidden city that lives in the shadows of the anaesthetized and over-stylized urban landscape. The night time heart that pounds to the rush of different drums: a subverted militaristic snare, a distorted break, a glitched dub attack, a middle eastern refrain, a cacophony of in-car dissonance, a symphony of random noise soundtracking life at the edge of the night.
