Lots of wonderful releases this month, as ever. We chart the smoothest, sunniest waters with Lobster Theremin offshoot Distant Hawaii and our new favourite Harvey Sutherland, alongside a lovely Borrowed Identity edit we missed a few months back. Things get deeper and tougher on Obas Nenor’s ace new Mahogani 12″ and some classic-referencing trax from Bermuda Triangle and Life’s Track, before Matthew Herbert’s Earthenware, one of the bossman’s best club tracks in years.

Moving into techno terrain there’s a textured stomper from Levon Vincent-students Terriers, some typically crushed scifi rhythms from Legowelt and a spacey breakbeat exercise from PLO Man on Acting Press. After an ace collab with Morgan Geist Jessy Lanza shows off her versatility over the spartan footwork production of Spinn and Taso, Japanese oddity Yoshinori Hayashi offers some bewitching noodling, and we end with the recently re-released final recording of late, great Zimbabwean Mbira player Chiwoniso Maraire.
