2017's Iteration was supposedly the end of the Com Truise saga, but the project itself continued with 2019's Persuasion System mini-album. Seth Haley switched up his equipment and worked on capturing some new sounds, but the results still fit the overall feel of his previous work. "Wordline" opens with woozy textures and a submerged computer voice, not dissimilar to Com Truise's past releases. However, other moments on the album are both mellower and more subdued. "Gaussian" begins with rolling storm clouds and continues with Ulrich Schnauss-like synth pads and ethereal pianos, ending with a warped explosion. "Ultrafiche of You" is Haley at his most unabashedly sentimental, with a slow, swaying beat embellished with ticking hi-hats, and heartfelt melodies rippling into choppy waves. If any Com Truise track would prompt the audience to reach for their lighters at one of his shows, this would be it. "Kontex" continues the balance of slow, back-and-forth melodies and sophisticated beats, while "Existence Schematic" is more of a burst of sunshine, with fast, jittery LinnDrums and richer, gauzier synth pads. Following the starry synth drama of "Privilege Escalation," the release ends on a surprising note with "Departure," a Twin Peaks-worthy atmospheric outro with New Order-esque bass guitar, revisiting the often overlooked post-punk influence present throughout Com Truise's work. Persuasion System signals a bit of a different approach for Haley, but not so much that it will alienate anyone who enjoyed his earlier releases.

Fabric, a British Institution

The beating heart of the British electronic scene, label/club Fabric made a name for itself with epic nights out and legendary compilations, which have been a regular fixture in the lives of record stores and lovers of quality music since 1999. Here we take a look back at the history of a truly British institution.

Daft Punk, Curtain Call

Eight years after Random Access Memories transcended the artistic concept that had begun with Homework eighteen years earlier, Daft Punk have brought things to a halt. It is as if to say that no further reinvention was possible after their last album, which was the culmination of a career that paid tribute to the pop culture of the 1970s and 1980s.

Nils Frahm, an Atypical Piano Master

Hailed by critics of classical music as well as amateurs of the electronic genre, Nils Frahm’s talent has brought harmony between the two worlds for the last ten years. Whether he plays on a church organ or a synthesiser fitted with effect pedals, the German pianist is always looking forward, and that’s what makes him so appealing.
