Press Info:
Revered producer and composer Daniel Avery today announces his most ambitious and accomplished studio album to date, Ultra Truth, due for release on 4th November 2022 via Phantasy Sound. To celebrate the announcement, Daniel has shared a brand new track from the record called ‘Chaos Energy’, which lands alongside a neo-futuristic video created using AI technology by close-collaborator Claudia Rafael.

Alongside the record, Avery launches his new live show this month debuting at Nuits Sonores in Lyon on 27th May, the biggest outing for the project since touring America with Nine Inch Nails in 2018.

Ultra Truth offers a very different listening experience to any of Avery’s previous records. It inhabits its own world of sound, a construct built in Avery’s Thames side studio with collaborative help from a host of friends: the production touch of Ghost Culture and Manni Dee, the vocals of HAAi, Jonnine Standish (HTRK), AK Paul and the voices of Marie Davidson, Kelly Lee Owens, Sherelle and James Massiah.

“Ultra Truth finds me in a different place to where I’ve been before. My previous albums have all focused on the idea of music being an escape or a distraction from the world but that’s not the case this time. For me this album is about looking directly into the darkness, not running away from it. There’s a way through these times but it involves keeping the important people in your life close to you and navigating the noise together. This is an intentionally heavy and dense album, the hooks often hidden in dusty corners. I’m no longer dealing in a misty-eyed euphoria. Ultra Truth is a distorted fever dream of a record: riled, determined and alive.”

In creating Ultra Truth, Avery went back to many of the things that had inspired him to first make music as a teenager – pensive, emotive records by Deftones, Portishead, Nick Cave or Mogwai, the exquisite darkness of David Lynch’s movies and – on tracks like Devotion and Higher – the thunderous energy of leftfield rave music.

“I’m working with an entirely new world of sound on this record. Every single influence from the last decade spent on the road plays a part. Things that have been in the back of my mind forever, warped, distorted and pushed to a new place.”

Elsewhere, a counterpoint to Ultra Truth’s juggernaut breakbeats comes in the form of Avery’s elegiac tribute to the late Andrew Weatherall. Lone Swordsman feels like it’s been created from the same DNA as some of Weatherall’s most sublime moments.

“Andrew was an enormously important figure in my life. It’s been said about him so many times, but Andrew was someone who did things entirely on his own terms, an outsider through and through. He was a punk rocker as much as he was a techno DJ. I’ve always held on to what he taught me which was to offer a true expression of who you are at all times. That’s the ultimate goal. If this record sounds like it comes from a more shadowy place, that’s what it is and that’s who I am.”

Ultra Truth is just that. It’s the ultimate musical truth of one of the country’s most innovative, boundary-pushing electronic producers. And the truth is, this is a record to give you a burning sense of hope.

Press Info:
Recoil is the musical project of former Depeche Mode member, Alan Wilder, and Mute will release the project’s last three albums Liquid, Unsound Methods and subHuman. Originally a solo venture for Alan’s more experimental work outside of Depeche, Recoil became his primary music project after he announced his departure from the band in 1995.

The Golden Gate Jubilee Quartet, Rosa Torras, Diamanda Galás, Nicole Blackman, Samantha Coerbell, and others power Alan Wilder’s passionate yet unsettling Recoil album, Liquid. Released in 2000, Liquid possesses a hypnotic and deeply charged allure drawn from its intense tapestry of desire, fury and violence. An exceptional piece of work for self-reflection in the company of darker side yourself, the record is intended drill holes into your psyche in a genuinely unhinged way.

Originally a solo venture for Alan’s more experimental work outside of Depeche Mode, Recoil became his primary music project after he announced his departure from the band in 1995.

After a 6-year break from recording, Alan Wilder returned with Recoil’s fifth studio album, subHuman. This dark electronic album, which sets the listener a challenge to analyse what makes us human and subHuman, is a collaboration with bluesman Joe Richardson, who Wilder came across via a Google search. Richardson provided guitar, harmonica and eerie vocals dealing with themes of murder, death, and religion. Singer Carla Trevaskis llent her ethereal vocals on ‘Allelujah’.

Yann Tiersen

Kerber (Remixes)

Press Info:
Yann Tiersen has shared a new remix by Laurel Halo, and announced details of a 12” collating reworkings from his 2021 album Kerber. Kerber Remixes will be available on strictly limited edition white vinyl and digitally via Mute on 26 August 2022.

The remix 12” includes remixes and reworkings from Terence Fixmer, Beatrice Dillon, Laurel Halo, Iku Sakan and two remix competition winners, Sote and Simon Sky.

While Kerber saw Tiersen incorporating modular synthesis and sampling into the recording process, his follow up album, 11 5 18 2 5 18, was born from further experimentation in the studio as the artist prepared for a performance at Berlin’s modular and synthesiser festival, Superbooth. Using samples as his source, Tiersen has resampled, reprogrammed and recomposed existing audio to create entirely new tracks unrecognisable and decontextualised from their original versions. The album completes a story he started Kerber but where that took a more nuanced and subtle approach, 11 5 18 2 5 18 brings the listener into new sonic spaces.

This new remix 12” bridges the worlds of Kerber and 11 5 18 2 5 18, pushing the tracks further onto the dancefloor and opening them up to new processes.

Press Info:
As the legend says, Agartha is a lost kingdom, located in the earth’s core.

Only the bravest found courage to go to the journey to find it.

As you go deeper, the road gets darker, scarier… The journey to Agartha symbolizes the journey to the untraveled parts of human consciousness, which often frightens us, but as we observe and heal our dark parts we no longer need to compress and hide them. Facing our main fears will make our road mor adventurous, and one day the whole journey will become a tale. Tale of a man who found the lost kingdom of Agartha.

The Institute is happy to present a newcomer in its ranks: Lasha Chkhaidze, one of the 13 members of collective “If Strangers.” Georgia is home to melancholia and many exciting musicians, something we have shown in many of our previous releases. Lasha’s first album is part of this theme.

These six tracks gently pull you into a subtle and immersive journey. Listen and soon you find yourself pulled into the beauty of sadness – surrounded by these carefully crafted soundscapes which offer a perfect opportunity for a moment of introspection. The young Georgian delivers ambient and piano at its finest on this first LP.
