It's now become traditional for the admirable Brokntoys label to begin each year with a multi-artist, compilation style EP. Predictably, this year's volume, Lesser Myesteries, is predictably impressive. Amongst the highlights you'll find a first outing from Ben Cohen since 2015 - the symphonic chords, broken techno beats and stargazing ethos of "Entrance" - a fiendishly industrial chunk of wayward electro from Tharsis Shelter Unit ("Start Transmission"), and a wonderfully atmospheric cut from Furious Frank ("Night Rider") that sounds like a melancholic electro remake of the Pet Shop Boys "West End Girls" (this is a good thing, by the way). Monotoxine's wild and wayward "Positive Thinking" - think acid electro fused with Rephlex style "braindance" - is also fantastic.
