Aspect Music represents the London based music label established in 2000 and run by Thomas Melchior. Melchior first made a name for himself in the beginning of the 90′s releasing on Aphex Twins’ Rephlex label as part of electronica duo Vulva,later as Yoni on Move D’s Source Records. Protegee of techno legend Baby Ford, Melchior and Ford release as Sunpeople, Soul Capsule, part of the Ifach Collective and M-Core initially only on Trelik and Ifach later on his own label Aspect Music. As Melchior Productions , Thomas became one of the pillars of the minimal house movement on Perlon, Playhouse, a:rpia:r, Smallville, Cadenza, LoMidHigh Organic etc.., ex resident dj at Ibiza’s circoloco at DC 10, member of Villalobos’ Narod Niki , Melchior ‘s work also includes collaborations with Luciano, Ricardo Villalobos, Bruno Pronsato, Zip, Fumiya Tanaka… he remains one of the undergounds true visionaries.

The latest release on the british imprint came from the owner itself in the end of 2013, an album entitled ''Family Of Love'' and presented by the Melchior Communications Ltd. There's an element of mystery to Thomas Melchior's Dysfunctional EP. It's released on Aspect Music, a boutique label run by the artist that's been totally silent for more than a decade—its last record was the 2001 Soul Capsule classic Law Of Grace. And it's credited to Melchior Communications Ltd (a new one) presents Family of Love. It's not clear who Family of Love is, if anyone, and listening to the record doesn't clear things up much: it's more vocal heavy than usual for Melchior, and his ambient flirtations are more fleshed out, but whether there's actually another artist involved is anyone's guess.

The important thing is that, much like his EP from last summer on [a:rpia:r], Dysfunctional shows the veteran producer in something close to top form. "The Call" is him playing his strong suit—blissed out, delicate house with angelic vocals—but not quite in the way we're used to: more shoegaze than afterhours, it sounds almost like a remix of Slowdive or Cocteau Twins. The same is true for the B2 track, "Soon," whose smudged ambience recalls Loveless as clearly as its title does. "Everything OK" uses the same dreamy ingredients to more familiar effect: deranged in a pretty way, Perlon-style. "The Bow" is the best club track here, with a cascading non-melody and one of Melchior's classic rippling beats.

Another highlight is the Aspect Music CD that comes with current Melchior Productions. Aspect Music attained cult status after just three very limited-edition releases. In order to make the tracks from this production period available again and to trace the development of this highly unusual artist, some classics from this CD will be made available on vinyl after the release of the album.

Aspect Music is the favourite home platform for artists like Soul Capsule, Thomas Melchior, Melchior Communications Ltd, Twin TM, and several others.
