One of our favourite labels at the moment at Somewhere Down There is Magnonic Signals. Only three releases deep so far, but all have been of exceptional quality. Up next for the label is the first of a various artists EP series, Neuromorphic Engineering Vol. 1.
Kicking things off, master of deep electro Reedale Rise, fresh from his release on the Dutch label Frustrated Funk, delivers a sublime immersive machine funk workout with ‘Anatalia’ oozing class from start to finish. Next is the exceptional talents of Darren Nye, off the back of his superb LP on Childhood Intelligence, with ‘Beyond The Stars’ that has 90’s techno and electro at its core with just the right amount of intergalactic magic.
On the flip is Mihail P with ‘Past Lives’ a slice of pure Detroit inspired brilliance from the man from North Macedonia. To close the EP label co-head Spin Fidelity sets the machines to warp dive with ‘To Tha Outta Limits’ a driving techno track perfect for that 3am boost of high octane energy. There are still a few copies left of their split release Waves of Magnesism EP on the Magnonic Signals Bandcamp page.
