FIRST CUT

Hardware peddlers First Cut return with their forth installment. Gotta love this label's ethos - shining a light on the lesser discovered knob twiddlers and the shadowy DIY electronix scene; offering a platform for producers that would otherwise be buried too deep into their gear to ever get round to actually releasing anything.

Giles Armstrong has spent years in the so-called 'SCENE' but never actually made a record, until now. Whilst admitting it's not the most polished or technically accomplished; Giles says he's managed to get his personality across through a select but impressive array of synthesizers, noise boxes and rhythm machines.

With hefty kicks and a steady, deliberate tempo, the tracks unfurl at their own pace, but pack enough punch for the most demanding of club crowds. Non-linear arrangements hint at a producer not bogged down with tradition and in turn, offer up moments of ingenuity and expression. Strong stuff carrying this maverick label forward.

Reflection Port Assembly

Retribution EP

Second release on newly minted, future cult label First Cut. A limited run, hand-crafted, DIY electronics / mutant techno label straight outta Dublin Ireland.

Number two comes from Reflection Port Assembly, a laser CAD operator who met the label at the wonderfully named Gary's Gang clubnight in Dublin. A little lighter and more gentile than the gutteral acid of number one, it treads a common line between Pender Street Steppers, Anthony Naples and Apron Records - quite stripped back but scuzzy, fuzzy and rough around the edges. Warm, messy, flawed and charming; perfect for enjoying with friends down the pub on a Saturday evening.

Another essential future classic for fans of DIY electronics and hardware powered dance music. RIYL: Cerberus Future Technologies, Apron, Northern Powerhouse, Crow Castle Cuts etc.
