Title: B23 Steelhouse/Motor System (Extension)
Format: 12"
Label: Pan
Country: UK
Price: $19.00
"Limited pressing white label 12" featuring two previously unreleased tracks by Lee Gamble. "B23 Steelhouse" is a rework of "Steelhouse Chaconne," itself an unreleased Lee Gamble dub from 2013. On the flip is "Motor System (Extension)," a track taken from 2014s Koch album (PAN 059CD/LP) and extended. Both tracks have been remastered and sound much louder and dynamic than the album cuts -- primed for the DJs. 140-gram 12" mastered and cut by Rashad Becker at D&M." - Pan.

Title: Diversions 1994-1996
Format: LP
Label: Pan
Country: UK
Price: $19.00
2015 repress. "The 30-minute Diversions 1994-1996 EP is made up entirely from samples from the collection of Lee Gambles jungle cassette mix-tapes. The audio has been subjected to analog and digital deformations, while trying to extract, expand upon, and convey particular qualities emblematic of the original music. The effect is that of a musical body scan, all that is solid melts into air. Sounds are unearthed, dissected on the operating table, melted and unlocked , evoking sonics not unlike the heavy dub processes of Jah Shaka and Scion in an INA GRM frame of mind or bearing a similar methodological approach with what Mark Leckey explored in his piece "Fiorucci Made Me Hardcore." It can be heard as a "memory" of a period of music and for some could work as a "cued recall," which is a form of memory retrieval. Lee Gamble started out as a teenager DJing on pirate radio and on the emerging jungle scene; however, his own approach to music has taken a more experimental direction. Exploring the outer realms of abstraction through digital synthesis/resynthesis, Lee has described his current compositional process as "the configuration of material (ex nihilo) via various digital synthesis methods, prompts further disfigurations and reconfigurations. What you then have left is often the detritus or debris of an idea. Phantasms of both previous and current musical, pseudo-scientific and sculptural influences are manifest as new material abstractions, created from the digital blank canvas. This abstraction allows several interests to appear in the works simultaneously." He is also a founding member of the UK-based CYRK collective and has curated/co-curated several CYRK events. He has also produced and curated three radio series for London-based radio station Resonance 104.4 FM and he continues to DJ. Lee has released his computer compositions on the Entracte label and has collaborated with composer John Wall and artists Yutaka Makino and Bryan Lewis Saunders. Diversions 1994-1996 is the beginning of a longer-term collaboration with Pan. Mastered and cut by Rashad Becker at Dubplates & Mastering. Pressed on 140 gram white vinyl housed in a silk screened PVC sleeve with artwork by Kathryn Politis & Bill Kouligas." - Pan.

Title: Dutch Tvashar Plumes
Format: LP
Label: Pan
Country: UK
Price: $27.00
Repressed. "Dutch Tvashar Plumes seems to map the changes in Lee Gambles approach to music-making over the last couple of years. From his initial exposure and subsequent immersion into jungle as a teenager, he soon began experimenting with structure and sound design, which led him to a more "academic" approach to "computer music." There were many self-imposed rules he adhered to during this time. These last few years he decided to break with that and make an intuitive venture forward. This record is the first real document of that.

Title: Koch
Format: Double LP
Label: Pan
Country: UK
Price: $29.00
"Following up from the success of his emphatic PAN releases Dutch Tvashar Plumes (PAN 036LP) and Diversions 1994-1996 (PAN 033LP) in 2012, PAN is excited to announce Koch (pronounced "cotch"), the new album from Londons Lee Gamble. Sharing some stylistic affinity with his previous records, which excavated his deeply personal history with UK jungle and rave, and techno, this new work dives even deeper to reveal a singular and intimate musical vantage point, shifting to approaching music as projection, state, hallucination, another place. In Koch, we experience an artist constructing a future, after time spent deconstructing the past. In the music we witness such dimensional abstraction, zooming between epic macro-scenery and claustrophobically close detail, disorientation and absolute focus. Rhythms fuse together and phase apart, club tracks tunnel into an anxious wilderness, with themes and textures emerging as threads throughout the record, wormholing between each track. There is a sense of the seen and the unseen, an honest tension between music as function (for this world) and as artistic exploration (for another world) as cracks in the surface appear to reveal the odd and alien minutiae within. Koch represents an intimate and revelatory new phase in Lee Gambles practice. Producing tracks that can live and grow on their own in a club or personal listening environment, the artists exploratory framework creates threads of consistency and tension between disparate spaces, locations, and mental states." - Pan.

Title: Kuang EP
Format: 12"
Label: Pan
Country: UK
Price: $19.00
"Lee Gamble is a UK-based artist and electronic music producer with roots in the original jungle-techno and extreme computer music fields. The Kuang EP heralds the release of Gambles keenly-awaited 2nd LP KOCH with three tracks of dissociative ambient/techno. "Kali Wave" opens with a bittersweet breakbeat roller sounding something like early AGCG playing in a hall of mirrors, whereas "Mimas Skank" diffuses oily acid and dry dub techno inna dancefloor wormhole, and the detached ambient drift of "Girl Drop" rends a gasp of post-rave bliss into 12 minutes of spectral sublime or precipitous dread, depending on your perspective." - Pan.
