Released 27th January 2017
A singular artist who's sonic identity is constantly morphing, ENA's 'Binaural' LP stands as one of his defining releases. With the vinyl version of 'Binaural' containing 12 totally separate tunes to the CD release of the same LP, the vinyl version has long been out of press and has built into a very expensive item on Discogs. The 'Binaural' LP is repressed for 2017 in it's original full artwork jacket and now on solid white vinyl.

Liam Blackburn's transformative 'Night Of Visions' LP as Ancestral Voices forged a bold new sonic identity for an influential figure on the electronic music scene. From his groundbreaking work as Indigo and onto the success of Akkord's hybrid electronic melting pot (with Synkro), the quest for forward movement is intrinsic to everything Liam produces. To further celebrate the 'Night Of Visions' LP release, we asked some of our favourite producers to reconstruct some of 'Night Of Visions' highlights in their own style.
Samuel Kerridge requested to use elements from 2 tunes and marry them in one remix. Elements from 'Sleepless Night, First Light' and 'Ritual Terre' are dissected, reversed and used as haunting ghost like layers that coil themselves around an assortment of off kilter drum hits, guttural murmurs and sound effects that often feel like they are designed to test the flexibility of your speaker cones. 'Vine Of The Soul' gets the Pact Infernal treatment - all rattling percussion and high drama, there's a sense of dread that dominates the atmosphere, but this time it's combined with a ghoulish operatic layer. Perhaps the most overt of all the Pact Infernal productions, it just may be a forecast of what's to come for the debut Pact Infernal LP, due in late 2016.

A – Causeway | Kiyoko is renowned for deep atmospheric works that drift and intertwine the imagination of the listener, this is very evident in this piece of music that is both powerful and thought provoking in one production. Causeway has a cold overall feeling that would be well suited to a set piece of outer space scenery from the world of sci-fi movies.
The pad sounds are straight from the farthest reaches of space and are full of otherworldly intentions. The key changes add to the visual style of the tune and the addition of the rising synth noises increase the intensity and motion of the track.
The percussive elements that arrive are minimal, but superb in terms of quality. Solid kick drums boom through the mix, delayed claps and snare have a definitive clarity whilst sounding almost industrial in their tonality. This is set at a half speed pace that whilst not energetic to go bonkers too does ultimately give more space and depth to the overall soundscape of the tune.
B- Dear Friends | This track comes from a warmer place than the “A-Side” with its downtempo chill out approach. The pad sounds are so deep and fulfilling, the mellow heads out there will be in aural paradise. These pads are complimented to perfection with jaunty eastern flutes that draw you into their relaxing melodies.
What makes this tune really stand out is the live sounding beat structure. The groove of which is magical and awe inspiring. The drum sounds have the feeling of swaying kelp in the ocean, with gentle precision. The programming of the beats has a delicate and intricate touch and are so well suited to the musicality of the tune.
If all this wasn’t enough the edition of a warm tonal bass sound completes the overall togetherness of “Dear Friends”. This track is outstanding and worth the admission price alone. This EP offers different shades of the lighter warmer side and the colder dark side of Kiyoko’s palette of sounds. Both tracks compliment each other perfectly and this is a must have slab of vinyl for the deeper collectors out there.
