Ramp Recordings sister label Brainmath will follow its recent Brackles single (‘6am El Gordos’) with singles by Airhead and Bakongo, the first featuring a remix by Ostgut-Ton boss Nick Hoppner [above].

First up is Bakongo with the ‘Amhara’ 12”, then it’s time for Airhead. A production partner of James Blake’s, the pair’s recent joint single for the Brainmath label was superb, and now Airhead’s solo ambient jaunt ‘Paper Street’, which features on Scuba’s Sub:stance mix CD for Ostgut-Ton, gets a release. It’s backed with a remix by Hoppner, who we often talk about as one of the world’s most underrated producers.

Following that is Airhead’s full solo album, Empty 9-Volts. We have no audio, or even a tracklist, release date or artwork yet, but we will have soon (we’d wager release date for the LP will be in about three months’ time). Watch out for a full FACT feature on Airhead nearer the time – he’s someone we have high hopes for.
