TSR
Terror Shit

Given that they specialise in hard-as-owt club bangers we’re going to assume that the RIOT Radio label (Neil Landstrumm, Cannibal Cooking Club) didn’t get their name from The Dead 60’s mid-2000’s indie-ska hit. The manic DJ tackle served up on TSR’s Terror Shit EP is a sort of mish-mash of Super Rhythm Trax-style acid, ghetto bass tweakers and the kind of industrial-strength hell-raisers you find released by Power Vacuum. In short, it’s wicked. Terror Shit contains three TSR originals and a remix of ‘Major Pump’ by Modulator.

Karen Gwyer
Man on Mountain

Ok, I’ll hold my hands up - this particular Norman Records™ pen-pusher initially read it as ‘Karen Gwyer, Man On Wire’ and was a bit disappointed to discover that he was wrong. That one’s on me rather than Karen though, and once again the Berlin-based producer comes through with a set of mesmerising electronic productions here. Man On Mountain contains a couple of fast-paced Midwestern techno cuts that are balanced out by some more abstract drone works. This is Gwyer’s first release since 2017’s excellent Rembo LP, and like that album it’s coming out via Don’t Be Afraid (rRoxymore, Jayson Wynters).

Mickey Nox
Mad As A Cut Snake

'Mad As A Cut Snake' by Mickey Cox is for anyone who likes their beats copper-bottomed and their bass chewy. Be warned, this techno music is not for the faint of heart. It requires a strong constitution and an even stronger soundsystem. 'Mad As A Cut Snake' is the real deal. If you feel up to the test, however, it's out on Riot Radio Records and is accompanied by a few superb remixes from Ayacarna, Myler, and Ansome. 
  • Genre(s):
  • Techno / Dub Techno / Experimental House

The Orb
Alpine

Rave pioneers The Orb are back on Kompakt with this 12” vinyl. On Alpine it’s as if the psychedelic electronica icons never went away; swirling samples are blended with synth pads and groovy percussion. This downbeat collection of droning dance music borrows from trip hop, minimal techno and ambient house.

  • Techno / Dub Techno / Experimental House

Lone
Abraxas EP

Loves running labels, does old Lone. Not content with helming the Magicwire imprint alongside Gabriola, the one born Matt Cutler has started up Ancient Astronauts with a new EP of his own. Abraxas is another fine set of halcyon house from Lone, one that joins the dots between the old-skool acid/rave sounds of Cutler's more recent drops and the maximalism he dealt in back in the early 2010s.

Cybotron
Enter

Cybotron was of course the outfit who appeared right at the very beginning of the Detroit techno explosion. They featured Juan Atkins who would go on to be a major player in the movement going forward. Here they produce a fascinating form of cosmic funk which drew comparisons with Kraftwerk and George Clinton and were eventually sampled on Missy Elliott's Lose Control which is just one reason of many why the album is considered such a classic.  

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.

Rod Modell
Captagon

Techno man Rod Modell is back with a full length album for that there Tresor. On Captagon Modell has refined his craft. Tracks change impercitably but still manage to hit hard. On top of this the producer is capable of tackling a variety of tempos, his minimalism surviving everything he throw at it. What can I say but "oooofff!"
  • Genre(s):
  • Techno / Dub Techno / Experimental House

TV Victor
Back To The Moon

Active on Tresor in the 90’s and early 00’s, TV Victor has made a welcome return in the past few years. Now Back To The Moon, an archival set that is his fourth release since 2015, arrives courtesy of Lullabies For Insomniacs (Million Brazilians, Sugai Ken). Back To The Moon is a curious collection of abstract electronic tracks, one that draws on everything from Balearic House to the ambient explorations currently cropping up on Seance Centre. There’s a bit of Pablo’s Eye in there too. Very interesting stuff.

Forest Drive West
Blue 05

Whities reignite their Blue Series with a drop from Forest Drive West. The London producer’s considered brand of techno has always felt like a good fit for Nic Tasker’s label - indeed, it’s somewhat surprising to find out that Blue 05 is Forest Drive West’s first Whities drop. ‘Other’ and ‘Time’ are both dubby, evocative rollers that show FDW as instantly at home in his new surroundings. Not dissimilar to Batu.

Ben Klock
Before One

Before One, logically enough, is the immediate precursor to Ben Klock’s full-length album One. You know Ben Klock, and you know his reliable brand of big-room Berlin techno: endlessly compelling for the body, and sometimes even the mind. What a pro. Re-pressed 12” on Berghain’s Ostgut Ton label.

Loidis (Huerco S.)
A Parade, In The Place I Sit, The Floating World (& All Its Pleasures)

The second 12" to drop on Hank Jackson’s Anno Records comes courtesy of NYC techno oddball Huerco S. under his Loidis moniker. A Parade features three minimal club tracks replete with chirruping synth motifs and the odd dub-techno bassline. The title track is a hypnotic, edge-of-the-dancefloor delight. Imagine a more adventurous Levon Vincent.

Repeat

Unlike many compilations with garish colours and the ubiquitous smiley face icon on the front, Repeat is not some tired trot through the old-skool classics. Instead, through prime cuts from LFO, Humanoid, μ-Ziq and the Future Sound of London, we get a lovingly assembled deep dive into the independent British dance scene of the early Nineties, and a proper insight into rave culture. 

K15 & SMBD
Earth State EP

North London artist Kieron Ifill - a.k.a. K15 - and British underground stalwart SMBD (or Simbad) hooked up at the latter’s studio for series of raw analogue collaborations over the last few years. This seven-track EP Earth State is the fascinating result, released via Steven Julien’s Apron imprint.

EP2

A collision of techno and minimalist classical music, Masks - a New York duo consisting of Patricia’s Max Ravitz and Arp’s Alexis Georgopoulos - deliver their bluntly titled second effort EP2. Constructed from live performances and without overdubs, the EP consists of three original cuts and a Bookworms remix of ‘In This Room’.

B12
Electro-Soma

Warp Records luminaries B12 announce the first reissue of their 1993 album Electro-Soma all remastered in a gatefold sleeve with an essay on B12, photos and more souvenirs. Alongside Aphex Twin, The Black Dog, and Autechre, B12 were pioneers of IDM and techno and Electro-Soma was the first compilation of their early recordings.

JTC
Indigo, Flesh and Fire

Electronic musician and Bopside label owner Tadd Mullinix has historically recorded under a range of aliases during his career, each to signify a different aspect or influence of his sound. With this new five-track EP Indigo, Flesh and Fire, he re-activates his JTC moniker that he’s often used to indulge in acid house stylings.

James Ruskin
Reality Broadcast Off

James Ruskin’s back on his own Blueprint Records (Surgeon, Truncate) with another set of no-BS club tools. Reality Broadcast Off doesn’t waste any time messing around - both the opening title-track and ‘We Are Everywhere’ are precisely-administered 130-bpm techno wedges of the Birmingham school. Closer ‘Disaffection’ marks itself out with a wriggling acid bassline, but like the rest of Reality Broadcast Off it still slams hard.
  • Genre(s):
  • Techno / Dub Techno / Experimental House

ASC
Realm Of The Infinite

The press release for Realm Of The Infinite, the new LP from ASC, promises another set of ‘grey area’ techno from the veteran producer. It’s not wrong, you know - anyone familiar with James Clements’ moody, broiling take on the classic sounds of Detroit will not be left disappointed by this octet of tunes. This is the sort of club fare that induces both frenzy and introspection in clubbers the world over. Think Answer Code Request.

Pact Infernal
The Gehenna Odyssey

After releases on Samurai Horo/Horo and Stroboscopic Artefacts, Pact Infernal drop new EP The Gehenna Odyssey through their own Altar Records. This is another set of occult electronics from the self-professed ‘dread technicians’. ‘Path To Topheth’ and ‘Kothar-wa-Khasis’ are new age as imagined by Prurient, ‘Itzrel Itzrzel Azazel’ sounds like drums of war being beaten in hell, and ‘Render Unto Moloch’ is devilishly dark ambient. The Gehenna Odyssey is not one for the faint of heart.

Overlook is Jason Luxton who also has connections with the labels UVB-76 and The Stone Tapes. His latest 4-track EP, Séance, sees the Bournemouth-based producer in typically non-conformist mood.  His genre blending and straddling includes mixing industrial and ambient sound and a collaboration with Osiris label boss, Mønic

Humanoid / The Kosmik Kommando / Luke Vibert
DE:10.08

DE:10.08 is the 8th EP in the 10 Years De:Tuned series. Everything here is built around classic 303 acid sounds. It kicks off with a new version of sT8818r by Humanoid. Elsewhere, there is Mike Dred’s remix of The Kosmik Kommando by Biosurvival which brings some proper rave to proceedings. Tracks from veteran Luke Vibert and cult German duo Air Liquide make up side two.

Gunnar Haslam
Lebesgue Measures

L.I.E.S. have been consistently releasing the most exciting, raw and experimental house and techno, and this vinyl LP from Gunnar Haslam continues their stunning run. Harsh walls of sound are blended with jackin’ drum machine workouts and warped 808 basslines. Lebesgue Measures is the the third album from this NYC producer.

Tony Allen / Ricardo Villalobos
Dekmantel 10 Years 10.1

Wrapping up a ten-EP series in celebration of as many years active, the Dutch imprint Dekmantel commissions from minimal techno heavyweight Ricardo Villalobos a whopping half-hour remix of Tony Allen’s 1999 tune ‘Asiko (In A Silent Mix)’. Villalobos weaves new effects and synthetic materials into the warm timbres of the original drums, brass and vocals, but keeps it tastefully balanced and highly groovy.

Metallic clanks, rapid-fire percussion and annihilating rhythm. Or is that mhtyhr gnitalihinna? 12" on dnuoS ytiviL.

Neil Landstrumm
Shitting Diamonds On Jupiter

For more than 20 years, producer and DJ, Neil Landstrumm, has been putting out innovative techno tracks on a variety of top labels. From Peacefrog to Planet MU and Tresor - he’s been everywhere. Now, for the first time he lands on Running Back with what could be his best titled 12” yet - Shitting Diamonds On Jupiter.

LSD
Second Process

After dropping the excellent Process EP through Ostgut Ton back in 2017, LSD - a techno supergroup comprised of Luke Slater, Steve Bicknell and David Sumner aka Function - have started up their own label to issue new six-track set Second Process. This is a set of slamming psychedelic club fare hewn from unrelenting kick drums and drug-haze synth textures.

Extrawelt
Speicher 110

German couple Arne Schaffhausen and Mayan Raabe have been releasing music as Extrawelt since 2005’s Soopertrack (Border Community). Releases on labels such as Traum and Cocoon have cemented them as an act to be reckoned with. Speicher 110, released via Kompakt Extra, features two contrasting tracks. Side one gives out analogue funk, whilst on the flip, deep-cutting techno is the order of the day.

Ondo Fudd
Eyes Glide Through The Oxide

First things first - Ondo Fudd is no relation of Elmer, which is a bit disappointing to be honest. However, the pill is sugared when you realise that Ondo Fudd is actually an alias of London techno innovator Call Super - and things improve still further when you drop the needle on Eyes Glide Through The Oxide, an EP of fourth world techno and house in the D. Tiffany/upsammy mode. Be vewwy vewwy quiet.

The Cyclist
Sapa Inca Delirium

Lo-fi house throbber and presumed cyclist The Cyclist (one Andrew Morrison) puts on the exotica hat for this one. Sapa Inca Delirium explores South American mysticism for its narrative and visual imagery. The album ranges between dreamlike downtempo (‘Antiexist’) and big, smoggy thumpers (‘Inhale/Exhale’, which features Tanaya Harper).

SK U KNO (Suzanne Kraft)
U KNO

Netherlands-based Suzanne Kraft (a bloke named Diego, by the way) previously spotted on pal Jonny Nash’s label Melody as Truth label and now on No 'Label' with another LP. U KNO reproduces material performed live last year, ranging all sorts from woozy interludes and ambient dreamscapes to rather blazed ‘n’ wonky sampletronica.

Rhythm & Sound w/ Tikiman
Music A Fe Rule

Under the name Rhythm & Sound, Moritz von Oswald and Mark Ernestus finally saw the opportunity to showcase and develop their love for reggae. For Music a Fe Rule, they combined their affinity with dub techno (as the legendary duo Basic Channel) with the laid-back patois of Tikiman, aka Paul St. Hilaire. Classic reissue, coming straight from 1997.

Rhythm & Sound
Trace

Arguably one of my favourite press releases: 'Trace 9:00, Imprint 16:24'. Completely lacking any information whilst simultaneously giving you all the  information you need. Track name and when it's on. Brilliant. Trace is the heavy electronic and ambient release from Rhythm & Sound that's available on vinyl 12" and released on Rhythm & Sound. 

Round One
I'm Your Brother

Here's a stone-cold classic for you. Round One's 'I'm Your Brother' is a legendary house cut which uplifts with its deep, Chicago house grooves. The single includes 3-tracks: the club version, an edit, and a remix. 

Rhythm & Sound

Rhythm & Sound
Carrier

Rhythm & Sound’s hard-to-find dub techno smash hit (as far as dub techno has smash hits, of course) finally back on wax. One of eight releases by Moritz von Oswald and Mark Ernestus, better known as Basic Channel, under the R&S moniker. Carrier is classic EP for anybody who loves dub techno, dub reggae, and/or tape hiss, and it still sounds fresh.

Basic Channel
Q-Loop

This little 12" from mostly-defunct Berlin techno nexus Basic Channel reissues 3 tracks from the 1995 BCD compilation, previously only available on CD. Despite their age, these productions still sound relevant today, with wisps of static noise, dub techno chords and staccato sub bass forming a hazy mix.
  • Genre(s):

Nathan Micay
Whities 017

You might remember Nathan Micay from his days as Bwana, but the Berlin-based Canadian is done with all of that now. His first release under his given name is a Whities drop, which means that it’s pretty much guaranteed to be good. It would seem that Micay’s new alias has allowed him to clear the fog that often fell over the Bwana stuff. ‘First Casualty’ and ‘Beginning Ballads’ are lovely things that sound like There Is Love In You-era Four Tet.

E.R.P.
Afterimage

Dallas based electro musician Gerard Hanson also known as Convextion also known as E.R.P. is releasing his debut album under that last pseudonym. The eight tracks here on Afterimage feature the deep Detroit style electro he's known for as well as the strings he's loved for. Double LP on Forgotten Futures.

SK U KNO (Suzanne Kraft)
NUMERO U KNO

Absolutely killer three-track from Suzanne Kraft’s SK U KNO alter-ego here. NUMERO U KNO kicks off with the barnstorming ‘Shopbeat’, a track that sounds like a first-wave grime instrumental cross-bred with something by Special Request. Expect the thing to tear the roof off the club when it gets dropped. RAMZi drops by to help out with the wistful deep house jam ‘Founded (SK Mix)’, and NUMERO U KNO closes out with the humid, D Tiffany-style cut ‘Accelerate Me Wildly (Middlesex Edit)’. Wicked.

Israel-born and Germany-based duo TV.OUT pull no punches on their new self-titled EP. It’s their second release on Long Island Electrical Systems.

Pugilist is next up on Whities’ Blue Series, a run that has already seen entries from artists like upsammy and BFTT. The trio of atmospheric rollers that Pugilist offers up on Blue 06 combine D Tiffany’s hazed house sound with some breakbeat techno stylings. There is an impressive attention to detail in the drum programming of cuts like ‘Encrypted’ and ‘Descendant’. Blue 06 is another winner from Nic Tasker’s excellent imprint.

Gladio (Legowelt)
Means To Freedom

Legowelt is famously fond of an alias, but of all the names he’s gone by down the years (Star Shepherd, Sammy Osmo) few are held in as high a regard as Gladio. This is partly due to the scarcity of Gladio records - new LP Means To Freedom is the first material from the project in over a decade. Means To Freedom is a set of typically snappy electro goodness from one of the genre’s foremost voices.
  • Genre(s):

Gramm (Jan Jelinek)
Personal Rock

This is the debut album of Gramm, aka Jan Jelinek, two decades old this year. Personal Rock is not rock, it is luscious loop-based night-time cool-party music, made with delicious electronics. This material is a bit more forward in its beats and house stylings than Jelinek’s better-known work, but it is still gorgeously subtle. Reissued on vinyl by Fatiche.

Jeff Mills
The Director's Cut Chapter 1

Though the director's cut is a concept more associate with filmd, it's definitely welcome in music. Jeff Mills is someone who has the same auteur energy that we tend to associate with directors, so it makes sense that he's doing this. The Director's Cut Chapter 1 sees Mills revisiting four of his tracks, the first of which was previously unreleased. On Axis.

Hieroglyphic Being
A Synthetic Love Life Vol 3

More astral acid from Hieroglyphic Being here. A Synthetic Love Life Vol. 3 contains four further wedges of Jamal Moss’s idiosyncratic club tackle. Anyone familiar with the producer’s style will know that there’s no-one who can take the old Midwest house/techno sounds to strange new places quite like Hieroglyphic Being (maybe the closest competitor is Afrikan Sciences, but he doesn't have the dancefloor rigour of Moss). A Synthetic Love Life Vol. 3 proves that all over again while also ratcheting up the tempo a little at times - the opening and closing cuts sound like juke on the moon.

Alessandro Adriani sure does keep busy. As well as running the excellent Mannequin Records, Adriani also cranks out wedges of prime industrial electronics at an impressive clip. His sophomore LP Morphic Dreams finds Adriani back on Stroboscopic Artefacts (Efdemin, L.B. Dub Corp) and running his usual gauntlet of electro, minimal wave, industrial techno and Gothic post-punk.

Special Request
Bedroom Tapes

Bedroom Tapes sees techno wizard Special Request throwing it back to old cuts recorded onto cassette that were unearthed recently when moving house. Mastered by Matt Colton, who has similarly lent his talents to artists like James Blake and Hot Chip, the tracks retain every trace of the original recordings onto tape, hiss and all. A time capsule, if you will, for one of electronic music’s most enigmatic and talented main players.

Domenico Crisci
Velvet

Techno that sounds like a collapsing building from Domenico Crisci. I've never heard music that sounds so much like its foundations have been shaken. On Velvet Crisci is not interested in giving you time to warm up, instead going full throttle all the time. Big, dark and distorted. Just how I like it. On Black Opal.

Charlotte de Witte

Charlotte de Witte squeezes in another EP just before the end of the year - that’s a tally of four for 2017 alone. Brussels EP offers up three techno productions built around hard beats, various vocal deliveries (semi-spoken on the title track, pitched-down into monster grunts on ‘Control’) and sparse synth.
  • Genre(s):
  • Techno / Dub Techno / Experimental House

Silicon Scally
Cobalt Blue

Silicon Scally is back on Central Processing Unit (DMX Krew, Cygnus) with another set of electro niceness. Cobalt Blue contains four robust club tracks from the one born Carl Finlow. Entries like ‘Protocol 2’ and Cobalt Blue’s title piece chirrup away in that manner that makes you think of Fritz Lang’s Metropolis. ‘Asynchronous’ is a little tougher, its blurting bass drum reminiscent of Special Request.

Boy Harsher
Come Closer

US dark synth-pop duo Boy Harsher follow up their second album, Careful, with a pair of 12” singles. Come Closer features four versions of the album track. The most mouth-watering aspect of this particular wax slab is the remix by influential German DJ, producer and owner of the MDR label, Marcel Dettmann. On Nude Club.

Akkord
HTH035

Reminiscent of Cex or Hrvatski dropping acid, HTH035 features time-warping beats, paranoid pads and an inexplicable catchiness to it all. Akkord is here remixed by Fis and OG Regis, the first leaning more towards the psychedelic electronica, the latter responsible for a slowed and distorted techno-feel.

Palmbomen II
Memories of Cindy Pt. 1

Palmbomen II inaugurates a new series of four EPs, title Memories of Cindy. Part one contains six tracks of woozy nostalgia electronics, with melancholy synth melodies playing out over a vapourwave void of pre-sets and samples. Plenty of atmosphere, and sometimes some grooves too. 12” on Beats In Space, limited to 350 copies.

Palmbomen II
Memories of Cindy Pt. 2

Kai Hugo returns as Palmbomen II to re-invoke his memories of Cindy. Pt 2 continues the energy of his initial instalment; those high bpm's are present and correct in the pure house grooves and acid crescendos. But there are also meditative moments amongst the frenetic percussive grooves. For those wistfully reflective moments. Atmosphere, always atmosphere: limited Beats In Space 12".
  • Genre(s):

Palmbomen II
Memories of Cindy Pt. 3

It's the mysterious Palmbomen II and his dedication continues with the release of Memories of Cindy Pt. 3. For the final individual record in the series, ahead of a planned 4-part set, expect pared-down house infused with luminescent, melodic acid grooves cutting through the West Coast city haze. Also, please find hues of Tangerine Dream. Limited 12" EP, on Tim Sweeney's Beats In Space label.

Nathan Melja
Karibuni Music

Always good to see a new release from Antinote. Nathan Melja’s Karibuni Music EP continues the label’s excellent recent run that has included records from Alek Lee, Succhiamo and D.K.. This is a record of DJ tools that update the sounds of the 90’s deep and alternative house scenes for the modern dancefloor. Karibuni Music could just as easily have come out on Whities or Pacific Rhythm.

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.

A Sagittariun
The Circle Stops Somewhere

Sagittariuns, eh. Generous, funny, impatient, and - on the evidence of A Sagittariun’s The Circle Stops Somewhere - into raving. Originally issued way back in 2011, the influence of Nick Harris’ first EP under this name can be heard in subsequent works by the likes of Floating Points and Answer Code Request. The two originals are propulsive, melodic and slightly wistful techno that will go well with many DJ styles. Mike Dehnert provides a duo of remixes - one laid-back, one tough.

Vatican Shadow / Various
Berghain 09

Dominick Fernow’s noise / music / sound journey has taken him all the way from the self-loathing feedback howls of early Prurient to compiling a mix as Vatican Shadow for Berghain, that most noted of Berlin techno institutions. A great mix of powerful bangers and gnarly noise textures, including several locked grooves on the D side of this double LP set. On Ostgut Ton.

Gunnar Haslam promises us Seasick Acid on his third release for The Bunker New York (Marco Shuttle, Donato Dozzy). He definitely delivers on this front - these tracks front up lurching 303s that will make you feel like you’re raving on the high seas. ‘Seasick Version’ is more drum-heavy and ‘Leeward Tripping’ has a dubby vibe to it, but generally this thing doesn't mess around. Basically, Seasick Acid is an EP of good old-fashioned acid techno. Arr matey.

Various
Scores

As part of their 2018 festival, Dekmantel commissioned four artists to come up with new soundtracks for films from the Netherlands Institute for Sound and Vision and the EYE Filmmuseum. The contributors - Jordan GCZ, upsammy, Parrish Smith and Suzanne Kraft - each turned in intriguing work. Jordan GCZ and upsammy created some dubbed-out and slightly Balearic electronic atmospheres, Kraft turned in a tranquil ambience and Smith ended up on a Nurse With Wound tip. Their compositions are collected on the Scores 12”.

Shanti Celeste & Hodge
Soba Dance

Three tracks from the Bristolian dream-team team-up of Shanti Celeste and Hodge. Soba Dance is bouncy and vivid, with looping delayed percussion floating playfully above the core rhythms. The wonderful thing is that you can distinguish each producers’ own elements, but they still coalesce into a perfect whole. 12” on Celeste’s Peach Discs.

Posthuman
Cobalt Thorium G / Derek Carr Remix

First time releases on Weapons Of Desire for both Posthuman and Derek Carr here. 'Cobalt Thorium G' is an acid stomper by the former which the latter has a bit of fun with for his remix. The title is a reference to a particularly devastating radioactive compound described in Dr. Strangelove. These tracks will similarly lay waste to dancefloors.

Lucy
Dyscamupia

Anyone who reads press releases these days would think the world has simply gone triptych-mad. Here’s today’s triptych courtesy of Stroboscopic Artefacts’ Luca Mortellaro - that’s Lucy to you, buddy. It’s a triptych about Albert Camus’ ever-resonant novel The Stranger, focusing on the periods before, during and after a certain pivotal moment in the story. Jason Snell lends a crackle-voiced narration of Meursault as the triptych's thick rhythms and sound design chug along.

Forest Drive West
Static / Escape

Deliciously twisted, synth lead techno double A side from Forest Drive West. Around a stark set of drum patterns, spooky stabs and bass breath life into 'Static'. On the other side 'Escape' is a far stranger affair, with a more understated use of melody in favour of atmospheric non-music and skittering rhythms.

Peggy Gou
DJ-Kicks

The latest addition to the long-running, legendary DJ-Kicks series arrives in the bijou form of Peggy Gou. From South Korea, via Berlin's Berghain to your living room. 18 tracks personally selected by Gou from her formative years and eclectic record collection. There's disco, house, electro and Aphex Twin for your listening enjoyment here. On mixed CD and unmixed double LP.

Jeff Mills
The Director's Cut Chapter 3

Jeff Mills returns to his archives for another bite at his Director’s Cut cherry. Chapter 3 sees the techno overlord once again giving reissue status to a seemingly random selection of his deep cuts. A couple of newbies are thrown in for good measure, and there’s also a portion of The Director’s Cut Chapter 3 where Mills starts chatting about how his 2012 tune ‘Flying Machines’ came to be.

Floorplan
So Glad / I Feel Him Moving

Floorplan, the duo of legendary producer Robert Hood and his daughter Lyric, come through with two slamming new DJ tools. ‘So Glad’ combines minimal techno, house, disco and gospel to ebullient effect, its choppy vocals and burbling bassline ricocheting around the club. On the flip, ‘I Feel Him Moving’ is a shuffling preacher-house delight in the vein of Simon’s ‘Free At Last’.

Jeff Mills
IF Remixes

Jeff Mills continues to saturate the Jeff Mills market. Well, kind of. The two remixes on this 12" released by Purpose Maker were done by Terrence Parker who is not Jeff Mills. IF Remixes features two very different vocal performances on each side, one enormous and the other more subtle. Fascinating to compare.

Kelly Lee Owens
Let It Go

Kelly Lee Owens gives a proper 12” release to Let It Go, a juicy banger previously only heard in the bowels of Fabric. A rubbery rhythm bounces along with vigour and confidence, giving way to the breathy titular vocal. The track is supported by another exclusive cut, Omen. 12” on Smalltown Supersound.

Paula Temple
Edge Of Everything

We’ve been waiting a fair while for this one. Paula Temple has been releasing high-grade techno EPs since the early 2000’s, but Edge Of Everything is the first LP from the self-styled ‘noisician’. It’s an uncompromising set of harsh electronics and pounding, industrial body music that is occasionally offset by moments of stark beauty - see ambient piece ‘Don’t Use Your Eyes Now’ on this count. Think Surgeon and Ellen Allien.

  • Techno / Dub Techno / Experimental House

Metrist
Pollen Pt. 1

The excellent Metrist returns to the excellent Timedance (he’d previously released on the label as L.SAE) with an excellent new EP. Excellent. Pollen Pt. 1 is more of the punch-drunk (or should that be Punch Drunk?) anti-techno style that the Brighton-based producer has made his calling card in the past few years. The tracks here slop around the speakers like grog on a galley. Sounds a bit like Bergsonist.

DJ Guy
UNTHANK 12

A dive into the expansive vaults of Cardiff producer and artist DJ Guy on the Unthanks imprint. 12” EP UNTHANK 12 selects six off-cut tracks made between 1993 and 1995, and although the  dancefloor is very much in mind, they also evoke the acid-drenched soundscapes that have garnered Guy such a cult following.

London Modular Alliance
Precious Materials

Always ready with the heaters, those London Modular Alliance fellows. The crew fire up the synths once more on Precious Materials, another home-run in LMA’s ever-expanding arsenal of electro weapons. Cuts like ‘Peach Hat’ and ‘Lavendah’ will transport you back to Detroit circa-1992. Precious Materials is out through Kirk Degiorgio’s Applied Rhythmic Technology (Photek, Deep Space Orchestra).

Cherushii & Maria Minerva
s/t

A beautiful but bittersweet EP here from Cherushii and Maria Minerva. The pair’s work on their recorded collaborative debut was cut short by Cherushii’s tragic death in the Ghost Ship fire. Minerva has since completed the unfinished EP, forming a wonderful queer-pop synthy tribute. EP on 100% Silk.

Service Animal / Crime Unit
RAVE026

RAVE026 brings some rare DIY tape release material into the respectable, DJ-friendly territory of vinyl. This is a split between Service Animal (head of Endangered Species) who provides some wild gabber workouts, and Crime Unit, who gets heavily scuzzed-up. Real nasty dancing fuel on The Death of Rave.

Humanoid
Built By Humanoid

Before Future Sounds of London, there was Humanoid. Known for their classic acid house single 'Stakker Humanoid', Humanoid will release an album a mere 30 years after they burst onto the scene. Fast, frantic, and beat driven, 'Built By Humanoid' merges the old and new to create an acid monster.  

Nicolas Bougaïeff
On The Grid

Canadian DJ/producer Nicolas Bougaïeff has been turning heads with his Berghain bangers for a couple of years now, and new EP On The Grid sees one of the hottest prospects in techno come through with another outstanding set of tunes. Cuts like ‘Eden Configuration’ and ‘Skyscraper Model’ are reminiscent of Ellen Allien and Paula Temple, while On The Grid’s title track is the sort of dystopian jack one associates with labels like Super Rhythm Trax. Great stuff.

Fred Ventura
Technologies

Mannequin Records presents a five-track EP on 12” vinyl of acid house journeys, from Italo disco hero Fred Ventura. Title track ‘Technologies’ is given an extended remix from Alessandro Adriani, while four other experiments including ‘Looking For The Western Beat’ and an edit of ‘Afraid To Dance’ are present.

Torn Hawk
Time Is A Scam

Luke Wyatt, the Brooklyn-based electronic musician behind Torn Hawk returns with his fifth album, Time Is A Scam. His previous albums have come to us via Valcron Video, Not For Fun Records and Mexican Summer. Now, he returns to L.I.E.S. though whom he released a number of EPs between 2012 and 2013. Double LP on L.I.E.S.

Earthen Sea
Grass and Trees

Jacob Long - a man also known as Earthen Sea and someone who looks like Warren Ellis if he’d started out on synths instead of fiddles - returns to Kranky with new LP Grass And Trees. Long states that his aim with these compositions was to simplify and declutter his practice, and that sense of order really benefits this record. The tracks of Grass And Trees pull back from dub techno until only the ambiences remain, kind of like early Nicolas Jaar with even fewer beats.

Levon Vincent
Seahorse

Four as yet untitled tracks from Levon 'the Don' Vincent. Seahorse sees vincent embracing a relatively lowkey electro sound. Don't get me wrong, they'll definitely still go down well at your local discotheque. The highlight is the last track, which suddenly finds the synth stabs in acres of space, letting them really breathe.

Nina Kraviz
Nina Kraviz

Reissue of Nina Kraviz’s eponymous debut LP here on Rekids. Kraviz gets a lot of flack from the more bro-ish sections of the techno community, and the criticism really doesn’t hold when you listen to her music. From where we're standing Kraviz is up there with Virginia and Joe Goddard when it comes to producers who can put together Detroit-style club tracks and then lay down some killer vocals. Also, ‘Ghetto Kraviz’ still slams.
  • Genre(s):

GAS
Königsforst

Warm on the heels of last November’s Zauberberg reissue, it’s the equally welcome Königsforst. Following on from its predecessor, it has all the fundamentals of the signature Gas sound: thickets of grainy, slowed-down strings and brass ushered along by mucky, throbbing kicks into lush forested reveries.

Slowglide
Reigi / Haipa

Metallic, mid-fi dancefloor moods from somebody called Slowglide. These rhythms are immediately likeable, let alone danceable. There’s a trace of throwback to early 1990s IDM in the squelchy FX on some of the pads, as well as the discreet, brooding synths beneath. Piano hooks on the a-side also colourfully suggest eurodance and house!

Alessandro Adriani
Montagne Trasparenti

Originally released via Monofonus Press back in 2016, Alessandro Adriani now reissues his Montagne Trasparenti LP via his own Mannequin Records (Tropic Of Cancer, JASSS). Adriani has become one of the foremost figures in European minimal synth/dystopian electronics/whatever you call it in the years since Montagne Trasparenti first surfaced, and his rep is due in no small part to this excellent album. Sometimes Italians really do Do It Better, you know.

Robag Wruhme
Venq Tolep

Robag Wruhme returns to Pampa for the first time in eight years. On Venq Tolep, the Belgian producer draws on influences far and wide including R&B, two-step and ambient. More than anything, Venq Tolep represents a desire to make those influence 'pop'. Wruhme also invited vocalist Lysann Zander to work with him again. 

Modeselektor feat. Flohio
Wealth

Proof that Modeselektor can hit the off beat just as hard as the on. On 'Wealth', their track with Next Big Thing (tm) Flohio, the pair apply their big techno aesthetic to something that sounds good when rapped over. This picture disk also features the acapella and the instrumental if you think you can come up with a better combination than they did.

Kangding Ray
Predawn Qualia

Predawn Qualia starts things of with a boom, with four moody and finely-detailed club cuts for the more thoughtful dancers and head-nodders out there. 12” vinyl EP, with unique hand-paint artwork for each of the 500 copies.

YWF
Replaced

Copenhagener YWF serves up a pair of choons for fellow Danes Echocord. These are balanced on the flip by two remixes from the artist’s chums over at Berlin’s Freund Der Familie. YWF goes for crisp-rhythmed dub (‘Replaced’) and commuter train anxiety (‘All is Temporary’) while FDF keep it lush and minimal (‘Fdf’s Reshape’) as well as modulation-mad (‘Fdf’s Days of Doom Remix’).

Leon Vynehall
Nothing Is Still

Well, Leon Vynhall wrote a book. In the mid 20th century Vynhall's grandparents emigrated to New York, a journey he has found incredibly inspirational. The sum is Nothing Is Still, an album, a novella, and more. What's more it features most of an orchestra. Vynhall's debut album is nothing if not ambitious.

Surgeon
Luminosity Device

Accomplished techno man Surgeon aka Anthony Child returns with Luminosity Device, a title that sounds like a verbose homage to lightbulbs until you learn it really refers to the Tibetan Book of the Dead. Might be a bit more spiritual, then. These are intense modular techno tunes with excellent sequencing and the sensitive (and sensible) live editing of a disciplined DJ, not a tedious bedroom eurorack jammer. This Surgeon fellow seems to know what he’s doing.
