You Spin Me Right Round…

Stealthy buggers DC, they might not clock up the headlines like some other labels but over the last few years they’ve steadily put out beautifully packaged release after release, ranging from the stop/start electronic hip-hop of Kelpe or Clause 4 to The Emperor Machine‘s retro-fitted space disco without a single drop in quality. In fact looking back at their last 15 or so releases it’s fair to say they’ve probably released some of our favourite records in recent years.

Anyway the reason for this epiphany is the news that the long awaited debut album by The Oscillation (formerly The Orichalc Phase) is in the bag and ready to drop next week. Dreamy, droning soundscapes that are drowning in reverb are very much the order of the day, a kind of soundclash between The Velvet Underground and Kevin Shields at the Radiophonic Workshop, which is of course a very good thing.

To give you a taster here are the videos for Head Hang Low off the new album and previous releases Violations and Respond In Silence, or head over to DC’s site where if you sign up to their mailing list you can download a free MP3 of the Dub mix of Violations.

Head Hang Low – Directed by Dan Rutley

Violations – Directed by Julian Hand

Respond In Silence – Directed by Julian Hand

We’ve also bagged a couple of copies of the recent Death Before Distemper compilation the label put out, which includes tracks from the likes of Padded Cell, The Emperor Machine, Depth Charge, White Light Circus. To be in with a chance to win one simply email us before Friday (12th) with the answer to this question:

DC Recordings was founded by which multi-moniker’ed producer?

And finally on a similar vein to The Oscillation, if you liked what you heard and fancy taking a trip further down the rabbit hole we can heartily recommend that you check out the insanely good Knives Ov Resistance, (whose line-up includes The Oscillation’s Demian Castellanos) who released the mind bending Prisca Sapientia album at the start of this year, a record that no decent music collection should be without.
