XQUI's debut album on Subexotic
Subexotic Records are delighted to be working with emerging talent XQUI. Already a mainstay on the wonderful Wormhole World imprint, XQUI has now joined forces with Subexotic for his forthcoming album Twenties.
Xqui spins archival recordings into a fascinating homage to the roaring Twenties. As this record crackles into life, sounds begin to melt and warp in a visceral transgression of time. Uncompromisingly immersive; startling; melancholic; confusing; beautiful - Twenties is the rebirth of a fading spirit song of ages.
Twenties also comes in a visually stunning 'heritage' black vinyl LP edition, with deluxe 4 panel printed inner & outer sleeve, and is available for pre-order in these shops.
Rough Trade // Juno // Boomkat // Five Rise
Release date is 12th March 2021.

Cub\cub travels back in time with Trig Point
Following on from September’s unforgettable Memory Bliss, Cub\cub re-calibrates and goes back to where it all began with the release of Trig Point. Originally confined to audio files, shared amongst Twoism.org enthusiasts back in 2017, this updated official 2020 release has been revived from the artist's hard drive, polished and lovingly remastered to create a brand new Compact Disc edition.
The First Edition CD is limited to 50 copies and releases on 4th December on Bandcamp.
Dogs versus Shadows returns with new vinyl gatefold
Dogs versus Shadows hits Bandcamp Friday with a pre-release for his fresh lathe cut gatefold A Billionth of a Second. DvS' fourth release for Subexotic takes a more introspective approach than his previous albums. His familiar territory of dystopian landscapes wrapped up in the fog of Cold War paranoia remains, however, this album sees the Chief Dog bringing forth a glimmer of hope that has laid hidden beneath the crumbling concrete until now.
The vinyl record first edition gatefold is limited to 20 copies with a release date of 23rd October. Check it out now on the Subexotic Bandcamp.
Cub\cub pre-release 'Memory Bliss'
Subexotic Records are delighted to be working with the extremely talented Cub\cub. 'Memory Bliss', the artist's first physical release, explores the world in-between nostalgia and nihilism, analogue and digital, real and false; creating evocative and mournful musical collages. This is a highly recommended cassette release with striking artwork designed to reward the curious. Copies are limited so don't delay..
Simon Klee returns with new album on 'Bandcamp Friday'

Dogs versus Shadows third Subexotic release
Dogs versus Shadows' new release Bombing Middle England is Lee Pylon's homage to the street art of Banksy. Inspired by both the chintz, urban decay and dystopian elements to Banksy’s work, Pylon manages to mangle twisted beats, manipulated field recordings and frantic modular synth work together to make noise as diverse and challenging as Banksy’s art.
The compact cassette release of Bombing Middle England also pushes the dystopian/kitsch envelope with a bespoke limited edition package including a commemorative screen printed 'DvS kittens & bombers' tea towel.
'Pathways' from Counter Silence
Counter Silence returns with 'Pathways', a beautifully handcrafted limited edition vinyl lathe cut that picks its way gracefully through a series of landscapes, interweaving both a literal sense of place and a range of emotional vistas.
Rediscovered in a sequence of 'lost' recordings from years gone by, ‘Pathways’ stands as a worthy addition to Counter Silence’s growing standalone archive of intimate, emotionally honest instrumental pieces.
