New releases on Dead Channel

Conflux vs. Micoland - Ark Hive

Our friends at Dead Channel are back with two new releases and more to follow in coming days. The net label, based in the North of England, aims to serve as a vehicle primarily for the transmission of electronic music that has little, or no other outlet, but all has been quiet for a few months due to other commitments by its artists. Now Dead Channel are back on air with releases from label stalwarts Wobble N Dubb and Micoland, with an EP to follow by Tokyo based techno-maverick, Little Nobody. Fans of Wobble N Dubb will be pleased to hear that their debut album It’s Not Rocket Surgery is now available for free download from the website and we’ll have a review of that up in the next few days from the legendary Lisa Right Eye. Until then you can download and listen to the new releases for yourself here:

Wobble N Dubb – It’s Not Rocket Surgery 

734 years in the making, Wobble N Dubb do not recommend you download their debut album, as it may distort your perception of reality as you know it.

After a year of polluting the underground rave scene with atrocious, viscerally-coagulated beat spasms, they retreated back to their secret lair in the Yorkshire mountains to push their manifesto of noise to it’s logical conclusion. The chromosomes of Coldcut, Point B, Modeselektor, Reso and Venetian Snares have been spliced into a genetically modified hyper-toxic foetus, in a collaboration with NASA and HP Sauce.
It’s Not Rocket Surgery but it sure as hell feels like it!

Conflux vs. Micoland – Ark Hive

This second retrospective of early works by Micoland has been compiled in the spirit of Spac Hand Luke Vs. Amen Andrews, in that both artists are in fact the same person. These tracks all date from 2007 and 2008 and feature both the Skam Records-inspired analogue experiments of his Conflux project, and the darker output of his Dubstep and Hip Hop tunes as Micoland.

The album’s tracks were written primarily on hardware such as the Roland Juno 6 and the Casio 101, through delay pedals and other cheap effects, giving the LP a unique feel, unlike much of the polished Dubstep released today. Many of the tracks here featured in the set he performed supporting Milanese at Room 237 in April 2008, but are released here, in all their lo-fi glory, for the first time.
