What The . . .
Lightarmour Editions is a Record Label and Multimedia Studio inspired by an underlying musical zeitgeist rather than any specific genre; the jewelled ghost of primal-era Factory, 4AD, Mute, Fast Product, and Rough Trade (amongst many others, including Australia’s Volition & New Zealand’s Flying Nun) has been in the air for some years now, and the Post-CorporateHipHopPop generation has gagged on crass and vacuous non-imagination long enough . . .
New and Upcoming . . .
The 6-track Manifestations E.P. (Edition LE/012 is) is the debut release by recent label signing Odessa-X. Francis Belviso’s distinct post-dance sound-mash bears the DNA of the entirety of the last 30 to 40 years of electronica’s evolution. It’s post post-modern, with the haunting melodic sense of the Cocteau Twins binding together the fractured and complex beats of an Aphex Twin / Autechre / NIN workout. Tracklisting – Tempest Belle / Flux Interior / Relentlessness / Desire / Slow Ghost Machine / Plague of Hearts.
Due late Oct 2019. . .
Retrospective E.P.#2 Edition LE/006 is the second retrospective release of remastered Fate Razor material circa 1993 to 2000. Retrospective E.P.#2 collects a further 5 obscure tracks long out-of-print or previously unavailable. Included is the angst-anthem that initiated the entire Fate Razor enterprise – Angelignite (the predecessor to ColdComfort Logic), as well as the mutant-hiphop Dub nightmare BlackGuard Wolfpack and associated remix by Franc Tetaz.

Street Gods and Neon Dogs
Moving through the vaguely-cinematic landscape of “Street Gods” and “Neon Dogs”, there are encounters with string-machine anthems celebrating the power of sound and imagination; “Here are the Young Men”, drum machine exorcisms on love’s abuse; “I Will Sacrifice”, and tight Kraftwerkian paens to human aspiration caught in the teeth of life’s machinery; the “Hearts in Armour” trilogy. . .

Always Alana (NightStar Remix)
An extended bassline-centric reworking of track 8 from the Street Gods and Neon Dogs album. If Depeche Mode, New Order, Ladytron, and Sisters of Mercy collided on a street corner would it sound like this? . . .Nah. . .

A snapshot of the sound and the headspace of primary-era Fate Razor, the 5-track retrospective is comprised of dimly-lit swansongs to lost love, Sitiuationist manifestos and globalist defiance delivered via Dalek agitation, deity-destroying mantras in metallic glitter, nihilism, angst, and the raw thrill of sampling and sound.
Fate Razor is the Mr Hyde to CB’s Dr Jekyll – a much harsher, darker twin soul fastened to a dense propulsive sound that melds industrial noise, dub, electronica, and bastardised hip-hop. After a hiatus of over a decade, two EP’s of songs sourced from ’93 onwards are been released in prep for new material.. . .
