Despite a discography going back to 2011, Where To Now? has this year quietly turned into one of the UK’s most interesting experimental labels, with music from Beatrice Dillon, Space Afrika and Ketev among 2014’s cassette-based highlights. Earlier this year the label started the WHEREIIDANCE series to focus on more club-focused maneuvres, kicking off with a tape of forthright tracks from artists including Tuff Sherm, Lumigraph, Stephan Jos and more. As the label said at the time, “WHEREIIDANCE wants to make you move, even if you aren’t quite sure how to.”
The label will continue the WHEREIIDANCE series with a forthcoming 12” release from Naples producer NPLGNN, who so far has only a sole release for Trensmat sub-label Nute to his name, and given the stern approach of the Meccano EP, NPLGNN’s induction into the WHEREIIDANCE series makes perfect sense. Available to stream in its entirety below, the four-track Sigma/Tau 12” might hit with all the weight of a concrete breezeblock, but as tracks like “Acid UFO” demonstrate, there’s a fair bit of bounce in the producer’s rhythms too. You can pre-order the record at the label’s bandcamp.
