Fluxion
Perspectives

Konstantinos Soublis delivers his ninth full-length album under his Fluxion moniker, and it’s a rather more meditative and personal work than the cutting-edge releases that have made him one of avant-garde electronica’s most famous names. Perspectives speaks to a restless creative mind, and a need to keep moving.

Coisas

A pioneer of noisy techno as one half of the iconic Smersh alongside Chris Shepard in the Eighties, Mike Mangino is still putting out quality material in the 2020s. Coisas is released on Joachim Nordwall’s iDEAL imprint and is a superb coalescence of dub, deeper shades of house and techno.

Paperclip People / LCD Soundsystem
Throw

Carl Craig’s alias Paperclip People had possibly its biggest impact with Throw, real chunky banger with disco flair as well as techno / house clout. LCD Soundsystem used to cover this one for extra-ecstatic effect in their live sets, and now they have very kindly recorded their version properly in the studio! LCD version, plus the original, on a 12” from Planet E.

Drexciya
Digital Tsunami

Sadly ‘electro’ is now all too often synonymous with mostly terrible stuff -- electroclash, electro swing, etc. Well, Drexciya was electro at its best - hard, dark, and fast. As a new wave of young producers are obviously going back to these roots -- a quick listen to Objekt’s Flatland, one of the best records of 2014, is testament to this -- it’s nice to see Tresor reissuing this on 12”. Keep an eye out for Tresor’s upcoming reissue of Drexciya’s double-LP ‘Harness the Storm’, too.

Sleeparchive
Trust

Sleeparchive is the project of East Berlin resident Roger Semsroth who has also recorded as Skanfrom and Television Set. His latest album explores his techno credentials on a series of tightly wound techno loops with cascading synths and deep dark atmospheres. Certainly the spectre of Terrence Dixon is alive in some of these pieces. Further groundbreaking work from an under the radar master.

Bicep
Atlas

Following up on the brilliant reception afforded to their 2017 debut album Glue, Andrew Ferguson and Matthew McBriar return with a new Bicep track on 12”. A six-minute exploration of undulating synth lines that traverse broken-beat landscapes interspersed with cut-up vocals, ‘Atlas’ is an unmistakable banger. 

Matt Karmil
STS371

A ruminative album of ambient, hazy house music constructed from loops and soft-edged beats, STS371 is the fifth collection from British-born producer Matt Karmil. Put together at his own studio in Cologne, Karmil’s work fits neatly into an impressive output that dates back his earliest album ----.

Bileebob
Call Me

A 12” vinyl re-issue of one of Underground Resistance’s slow-burning greats.

It comes backed with ‘Get A Phone’, and an alternative (Inst) take on the title track.

Rrose
Hymn to Moisture

Something about the word moist or moisture, unless I’m talking about cake, makes me want to have a shower immediately. It’s clearly not the case for Rrose, AKA Seth Horvitz FKA Sutekh FKA Suite K with debut album, Hymn To Moisture. The experimental producer shows influences from bosses of techno such as Jeff Mills, Pan Sonic, and Plastikman along with famed electronic composers such as Eliane Radigue, Laurie Spiegel, and Phill Niblock to make an album as cerebral as it is visceral.

rRoxymore
Face To Phase

After emerging from her “annual creative hibernation practice”, rRoxymore returns with 'Face To Phase' - a rumbling beast born to thrive in the club, but often sounding like it derives from another dimension. A deep listen debut album, moulded and fuelled by the spirit of club music cultures.

Nick Araguay
EP

Sähkö Recordings presents the latest EP from the mysterious London-based artist Nick Araguay, about whom little is known despite a career that’s lasted over half a decade. He first started picking up attention five years ago with his SE15 Tales, a brooding mix of house and techno released on the Peckham imprint Peur Bleue. This new three-track collection, functionally titled EP, arrives with similarly little context. 

Charlotte de Witte
Vision

Charlotte de Witte is a Belgian disc jockey who is just as potent in the studio as she is behind the decks. Her latest EP features some hard hitting techno, dark and menacing thumps and slithers of uplifting and emotive trance. There are three original tracks plus a colourful and vibrant remix by Kangding Ray.

Drexciya
Grava 4

2002’s ‘Grava 4’, the final Drexciya LP, only deepened the aura of mystery around this singular group. If you don't know the full story we suggest that you read up on it - it's a fascinating mythology, one of dance music’s most vital Afrofuturist narratives. As well as worldbuilding, Drexciya also made some damn fine music in their time. ‘Grava 4’ goes easy on the machine-gun basslines and broken 808 beats in comparison to some of their other records, but this gap is filled by some of the duo’s richest and most evocative production.

UR
Knights Of The Jaguar EP

Another classic re-press from Underground Resistance with the legendary Knights of the Jaguar. A techno track but with a quite different sound to some of the other UR releases featuring heavy disco-influenced strings over melodic keys, soft drum patterns and a deep house almost balearic vibe. Infectious and uplifting and of course always in high demand on vinyl so now is your chance.

Systems E.P. 1

25 years ago this Systems E.P. 1, featuring three cuts from Red Shift, one from Ether, one from Escape Artist and one from Constants of Nature, was too much to handle, clearly way ahead of its time and consigned to the bargain bin. Once people started to get it, though, that bargain bins across the globe were scoured with anticipation of finding a cheap copy. It was harder to find than you might have thought but no fear, its being reissued by Kalahari Oyster Cult.

Tony Allen & Jeff Mills
Tomorrow Comes The Harvest

Coming at us via jazz colossus Blue Note is this interesting thing: a 4-track 10" from Tony Allen & Jeff Mills which they've called "Tomorrow Comes The Harvest". So that's Allen the legendary jazz drummer and Afrobeatist making sweet rhythmic music with Mills the Detroit Techno Titan. Two futurists with some serious chops that accompany their intimidating CVs combine on this record to bring us a rhythmical conversation. Nice.

John Tejada
Moving 909s (incl. Plaid Remix)

A new John Tejada EP is exciting enough even without being coupled with a remix from legendary Warp act Plaid. On Moving 909s the artist pays homage to the sample-heavy dance music of the late 1990s and in particular Optical's banger Moving 808s (see what he did there?) Plaid re-work and re-define whilst the EP is completed by the moodier Infinity Room.

Etapp Kyle
Nolove

Etapp Kyle is from out Western Ukraine way and this four track EP is inspired by the history, culture and politics of the area. it has resulted in carefully produced leftfield dancefloor with a distinctly minimalist approach that Kyle hopes reflects the area he grew up in. He's also made a fascinating sounding film and exhibition on the subject but this EP concentrates on the sounds and reflections.

Drexciya
Harnessed The Storm

One of the most revered techno acts of all time, Drexciya were mysterious, near anonymous and blended futuristic beat work with Afro influences resulting in a kind of underwater dance music. Harnessed the Storm was their second full length album and is one of their most intense works blending sci-fi influenced electro with uncompromising rhythms. Truly legendary. 

Mental Cube
Mental Cube EP

Mental Cube were Future Sound Of London in their early years. This eponymous EP was originally released in 1990. Over the four tracks you will find some funky 909 work outs, classic house and the bass heavy In The Mind of A Child, which was intended to be released back in the day as a Mental Cube track, but was released under the name Indo Tribe.

Hiro Kone
A Fossil Begins To Bray

Most music is defined by what is there, Hiro Kone's has long been defined by what is not. Her electronic sound art is made all the more potent for her ability and willingness to create space, which here serves not only the musical but the political. 'A Fossil Beings To Bray' stands in opposition to excess and in her words, "techno-fascism".

Stasis / Phenomyna
Vinyle Inaugural Vol 1

Steve Pickton is an undisputed UK techno legend - his vision of Detroit techno and his productions on B12, Peacefrog etc. are classics.

'Travellor' and 'From Afar' also appear for the first time on wax after only being available on Phenomyna's 1994 CD 'Unexplained' on ART. Vinyl DJ's will be glad to finally get their paws on these gorgeous works of celestial, glistening machine soul.

Powder In Space

Producer and DJ Momoko Goto presents her latest Powder EP for Tim Sweeney’s Beats In Space imprint, and it’s a slightly odd one. Alongside two new originals, titled ‘New Tribe’ and ‘Gift’, Powder In Space also includes an instrumental of Daphne’s 1993 hit ‘When You Love Someone’ and an exclusive release Samo DJ & The Hidden Operator’s blissful ‘Захват Сзади Rox’ in a live mix.

The Other People Place
Lifestyles Of The Laptop Café

The long wished-for repress of Lifestyles of the Laptop Café finally materialises, fifteen years after the late James Stinson of Drexciya renown released the classic anonymously as the Other People Place on Warp. It’s a seamless, calming and moving piece of downtempo electronica that has become a key album in dance music history, and should well be a staple item in any home listening fan’s collection with its renewed availability.

Pizza Boy
Deep Dish EP

Max Ravitz aka Patricia and also member of Inhalants, Masks, Pulpo etc. lands on the ever on point The Bunker New York label under his new Chicago themed handle -- an ode to the windy city's famed Italian treat and the Booty House music he grew up with. Except, and I'm sure we can all agree, a lot of the lyrics from that genre aren't compatible with our way of thinking in 2020. So Ravitz keeps the essentials intact - the relentless jacking grooves, a smattering of acid and flips the words to be about consent and respect. All 3 cuts will tear it up on the floor.

Basic Channel
Q1.1

A quarter-century on and still no-one has ever managed to match Basic Channel. The duo of Mark Ernestus and Moritz von Oswald rewrote the rulebook back in the ‘90s with their fusion of Detroit club sonics with dub/reggae production trickery. Pretty much every techno act that has emerged from Berlin since owes Basic Channel a debt. 1993 EP Q1.1 is just one of the many pioneering records they laid down back in the day, and now it’s been re-pressed for your delectation.

Whereas Cyrus legendary Enforcement will blow your ears clean off but Inversion is a much softer take on minimal techno.

Includes a new take on ‘March Down Babylon’ with The Chase Brothers. 

Paperclip People / Basic Channel
Basic Reshape

There go Basic Channel, quietly opening up whole new worlds in sound. Here we find the duo of Mark Ernestus and Moritz von Oswald giving a going-over to two tunes that Carl Craig made under the banner of Paperclip People. That’s so much techno royalty in one place! Unsurprisingly the resulting ‘Basic Reshape’ EP contains two dub-techno joints of the absolute highest quality.

Basic Channel
Phylyps Trak

Not to be confused with ‘Phylyps Trak II’, Basic Channel’s 1993 EP Phylyps Trak is a similarly defining moment in the history of club music. To say that Mark Ernestus and Moritz von Oswald’s sound is influential is to do it a disservice. In the most basic terms, dub techno simply wouldn’t exist without their pioneering work. This reissued three-track still goes so very deep.
  • Genre(s):

Basic Channel
Quadrant Dub

If you’re something with even a passing interest in techno then you’ll probably be aware of the importance of Basic Channel. The brand of dub techno that the duo of Moritz von Oswald and Mark Ernestus pioneered in the 90s has been frequently imitated but rarely bettered. 1994’s sprawling, evocative ‘Quadrant Dub’ EP is one of the finest examples of their oeuvre.

It's now almost a quarter-century on from their first release and both tracks still sound great in the club.

Phylyps Trak II

Minimal/dub techno pioneers Basic Channel re-press their 1994 classic Phylyps Trak II. Split across two sides of wax, this one is a mighty fusion of hard techno beats, thick bass and Ostgut synth textures. It’s also just as good if you spin it at either 45 or 33 - the slower one is the sort of deep meditation that has influenced countless artists down the years.

Serenity

Drexciya
Journey Of The Deep Sea Dweller I

The early works of the legendary techno outfit Drexciya released on 2LP so you can delve deep into its immersive and abstract glory. The duo were a mysterious outfit with no public persona or image preferring to let the music speak for itself. The result was a kind of aquatic drift that explored the darker side of both techno and Detroit the city in which they grew up. Essential.

Delroy Edwards
Slap Happy

Fresh from his collaboration with Dean Blunt, Delroy Edwards returns to L.I.E.S with an LP that should scratch any itch you have for some old school Chicago House. All the elements are here for some worshipping of the classic old school sound with no modern day production styles and plenty of synth stabs and latin style percussion. Unapologetically vintage, this could be his best solo offering yet.  

Mønic
Regret Was Never So Sure / (Regis Version)

With a halftime D’n’B title track following the cold desolate mechanics of Kryptic Minds backed with Regis’s 130bpm refit. All three tracks are ice cold.

Zeitgeber
Seventeen Zero Four

Released on clear 10” vinyl, Seventeen Zero Four represents the first time in half a decade that Speedy J and Lucy have collaborated as Zeitgeber for Stroboscopic Artefacts’ Monad series. It’s a three-track EP that reaffirms the pair’s ongoing love for unpredictable shifts in their techno epics and their love of bold production values. 

Minimal Violence

Minimal Violence release the first of three EPs scheduled for the next year all bearing the same unwieldy title DESTROY ---> [physical] REALITY [psychic] <--- TRUST.

Steve Moore
Frame Dragging

New York-based synth maestro Steve Moore releases his first music on the Kompakt label in precisely a decade since ‘Bayern Kurve’ came out on the label’s Speicher series. This new four-track 12” EP, Frame Dragging, covers Balearic minimalism, full-on house and blissfully chilled-out electronica.

Tobias.
1972

Not the famous never-nude of Arrested Development fame but a different Tobias. This is Tobias Freund  - a German techno expert who here opens up his archives to the general public and presents four slabs of vintage techno. He's been honing this stuff for 30 years so I'd dare say he's pretty good at it. Steady thumps, a krautrock like love of repetition and grainy night time listening are the order of the day.

Roza Terenzi
Modern Bliss

Melbourne-based producer Roza Terenzi releases her latest studio album Modern Bliss on the Planet Euphorique label. Spread over four sides of vinyl and nine tracks, it’s an adventure playground of an album, with every track offering something different from throbbing electro to progressive house bangers, but all clearly of a piece with each other.

EDMX
World Phaser

Producer Ed Upton delivers another studio album under his EDMX moniker, this time a double-vinyl package, and predictably going in a different direction yet again. On World Phaser, his first album for the Queen Nanny label, Upton keeps the arrangements stripped down and the bass frequencies cranked up. 

Steve Moore
s/t

Steve Moore has spent more time composing for the big and little screens these past few years, but if anything this experience seems to have made his output less 'cinematic' in the traditional sense. Whereas Moore’s previous entries for L.I.E.S. (2012’s Panther Moderns and 2011’s Zero-Point Field) were all widescreen hybrids of Detroit techno and Vangelis-isms, his new self-titled EP for Ron Morelli’s label is far more pared back. Only on the closing cut does Moore come close to his older sound, with the rest of Steve Moore opting for a sparse blend of kosmische synths and lilting programmed beats.

Move D
Building Bridges

The name Move D is pretty much a byword for quality in the world of dance music these days. Building Bridges, the latest LP from David Moufang’s most prominent project, keeps up the brand profile with another set of elegant and sleek deep house tracks. Given that Building Bridges works so well as a whole it’s surprising to find out that some of these cuts were made two decades apart from each other. Thomas Fehlmann, Juju & Jordash and Fred P are among the guests.

The curation represents the cream of the international techno/electro/house/electronic underground.

Aphex Twin
Peel Session 2

Despite being 30 years olds now, Warp Records still very much find themselves on the forefront of music. Following their celebratory 30 hour radio broadcast the label are releasing ten radio sessions recorded by some of their most iconic artists. 'Peel Sessions 2' was first recorded in 1992 by one Aphex Twin. Presented in a highly collectable sleeve.

Barker
Utility

Pitched somewhere between IDM and straight house music, Utility is the debut solo album from producer Sam Barker, following up on his well-received EP Debiasing last year. The record spans nine tracks of inner-space travel, beginning as psychedelic thumbnail sketches and thrashed out into electronic epics. 

Thomas Köner
Motus

Not seen the name Mille Plateaux bandied about much of late (or am I not paying enough attention?). The latest album from Thomas Koner appears on the legendary imprint and as you may suspect is a collection of splintered and near undanceable electronic music. Koner experiments in producing music free of rhythm and timing and wonders aloud whether anyone could ever dance to this. 

Sandoz
s/t

Richard H. Kirk is most famous for being a member of Sheffield industrialists Cabaret Voltaire. He also struck out on his own in 1992 under the name Sandoz, a name taken from the lab that developed LSD in the ‘30s. He has released 12 albums under that name to date. Second Circle have been sifting through his archive and found four tracks that were originally released in the early days of his solo career and made one stunner of an EP.

Leon Vynehall
Rojus (Designed To Dance)

Leon Vynehall unveils a rich and varied collection of house cuts. On Rojus (Designed to Dance) the producer’s lush, spacious deep house is in full effect. Vynehall uses jazzy samples and soulful vocals to create a unique, organic dance music, and this double EP contains two 12” of the good stuff.

Yuri Urano
Autline

Yet more club goodness from Central Processing Unit (BMX Krew, Paul Blackford) here. Yuri Urano’s style is a little more rough-and-ready than the buoyant electro fare the Sheffield label has become known for. Autline’s title track, for instance, is a clanging techno number that recalls Peder Mannerfelt’s ‘Equality Now’. Meanwhile ‘Pec’ is acid of a stronger strain than we usually find on a CPU drop.

Sorry I’m Late is the first EP on Don’t Be Afraid by Minos. The Irish producer has disparate influences including Jeff Mills, Slayer, Downwards and Drexciya.

Timeline
The Conscious Dream EP

Here’s a genre of music that we have referred to as both techjazz and hi-tech jazz in the past. It is a fusion of two American institutions in Detroit techno and Jazz. On both of these occasions we were talking about music by the Joel Dixon-led Timeline. Their latest EP is called The Conscious Dream. On Underground Resistance.

Shadow Child & Mark Archer present MASC
Return Of The MASC

Top notch EP from Shadow Child and Mark Archer present MASC here. Return of the MASC, on side A, is a slug to the guts that will have you reminiscing for those days in the ‘90s with Dan Bell and DJ Hyperactive blasting out. On the flip there’s a real mish-mash of genres going on with a Dance System remix of Eye Feel and some ‘80s electro and freestyle vibes with closing track WKP. On Super Rhythm Trax.

RX-101
Dopamine

Recent years have seen Lowfish and Solvent’s Suction Records put out a few compilations of RX-101 tunes. Dopamine might be their best yet. The one born Erik Jong made these tracks for private use at some point in the late-’90s, and as such there’s a time-stamped quality to the harmonious techno and electro on this record. Cuts like ‘Warm Electronics Box’ and ‘Tracker’ have a strong affinity to what Rephlex and Warp were doing around the same time.

HAAi
Systems Up, Windows Down

After regular Radio 1 slots and festival-slaying DJ sets, new Mute signing Teneil Throssell - known better as Australian-born producer HAAi - presents her first EP for the label. Systems Up, Windows Down is a step up in production terms from her self-released mixes, with every element of her psychedelic, melodious music sharpened up. 

Drexciya
Black Sea / Wavejumper (Aqualung Versions)

Alternative mixes of old Drexciya favourites have been located, and since it would be a shame not to have the world hear them, Black Sea and Wavejumper’s Aqualung Versions have been pressed to vinyl. These mixes sound as future-slick as you could desire, and a third track, ‘Unknown Journey XI’ is added to sweeten the deal.

A curious new format for the Palinoia imprint, here. Palinoia LTD 001 sees an exclusive, previously unreleased track from Donato Dozzy, ‘Aquatica’, which label owner Eric Cloutier heard on Dozzy’s DDKH mix from years back and has pestered him for ever since. On the flip side is Cloutier’s own new track, ‘Ekpyrosis’.

Sunil Sharpe
Etaci

Welcome to 'Etaci' - the high-octane and pulsating debut EP of Irish knob-fiddler Sunil Sharpe. There's no room for respite on this sizzling mashup of techno bangers. Crispy high hats, squelching synths and hectic samples are amalgamated in Sharpe's formula to create a dancefloor-ready concoction of lo-fi and raw beats.

DJ Rashad
Double Cup

I often think about what DJ Rashad might have accomplished had he lived longer than thirty-four years. What directions he may have pushed music in, what aesthetics he would have pioneered. What classics we'd be dancing to now. It’s a world I would have liked to have lived in. The Chicago footwork pioneer made so, so much brilliant music in his too-short life, and his 2013 debut studio LP ‘Double Cup’ is an absolute tour-de-force. It’s one of those records which simultaneously crystallises the sound of a genre in the public mind and also pushes it forward - in this case by bringing jungle, jazz and UK bass influences into the mix here. ‘Double Cup’ is also a celebration of the tight-knit Teklife scene Rashad came up in, with fellow DJs Spinn, Taso, Earl, Manny and Phil all contributing (as well as Addison Groove).

Nathan Fake
Blizzards

He knows.. he knows what's been happening. The aptly-titled Blizzards is Nathan Fake's first album since 2017's Providence and sees the electronics meister deliberately limit himself to rudimentary equipment and recording first takes with little embellishment. The result is a clubbier, more live sound that retains the melodicisms of his earlier work on Border Community.

Hodge

Released on the Houndstooth label, based at East London’s legendary Fabric, is a new album from Bristol-based producer Jake Martin, who’s been at the cutting-edge of British club music for over five years as Hodge. Shadows In Blue, released on double-vinyl, sees the producer continue to use crowd-pleasing techno as a loose platform to explore more experimental textures and sounds.

Biochip
Synthase

Capturing the pioneering spirit of early Nineties IDM, this debut EP from Canadian newcomers Biochip ought to appeal to the hardened electronic music fan. Consisting of eight tracks captured completely live, Synthase resembles the haunted analogue machinery and skewed rhythms of early Aphex Twin and Autechre. 

Plant43
Three Dimensions

Central Processing Unit OG Plant43 brings forth Three Dimensions, a new LP for the Sheffield label. Three Dimensions is full of the sort of busy, twittering electro jams that CPU has built its empire on over the past few years. The likes of ‘Disrupt And Disobey’ and ‘Orange Neon Display’ find a sweet spot between Rephlex and Underground Resistance.

Matt Anniss
Join The Future: Bleep Techno & the Birth of British Bass Music

Lovingly and knowledgeably penned by dance music expert and journalist Matt Anniss, Join The Future tells the fascinating story of the evolution of ‘bleep’ techno, a sub-genre of British dance that originated in Yorkshire (and particularly with Sheffield’s Warp Records) in the early Nineties during a particularly fertile period of creativity for the wider scene, and which evolved to become one of the most beloved styles in electronica. Features interviews with artists, producers, label owners and DJs as well as first-hand accounts of critical moments and raves. 

James Ruskin
Consumer Patterns

After a year that saw James Ruskin get some glowing reviews from the likes of Resident Advisor and Groove for an excellent solo EP, reissuing his Point 2 LP and showing off his exceptional DJing ability to the world’s farthest flung corners, his painstaking work and effort continues with Consumer Patterns as he brings sound design and experimentation to the world of tempestuous techno.
