Paperclip People - The Secret Tapes of Dr. Eich

Paperclip People is one of the many aliases of Carl Craig. Starting with his first contribution to a Virgin UK compilation in 1989, he will go onto establishing Planet E a couple years later and has been DJing and producing ever since. The Secret Tapes of Dr. Eich is just another one of the great productions Planet E has put out. Easily the most interesting and unique (or at least this is the only label I've seen do this) aspect of the label's website would be their inexpensive mp3 downloads. As far as I can tell, for only $1.50 (1.12 Euros), all of the full lengths and 12"s Planet E offers can be obtained. Often, this is what services charge for a single track.

Urban Tribe - Loyal Opposition

This is a newer Urban Tribe record (2010) coming out of Planet E. The A2 track Apathy's great in particular with the more noise-ier style that it has, along with B2 Insolitology and its driving distorted synthesizer I'd expect from the likes of John Maus. Either Sherard Ingram is going more experimental or I just really need to listen to the complete Urban Tribe discography.
