Qoso
Morning Routine

Will Bankhead continues to select ever more obtuse brands of techno to release via The Trilogy Tapes. This time we get a set of wiggling, airless anti-techno from In Paradisum mainstay Qoso. His ‘Morning Routine’ EP veers close to recent TTT releases from Parris and J. Albert as well as the last few Gobstopper Records drops.

Ufocus (Legowelt)
Guidance For The Puzzled

Legowelt man Danny Wolfers strikes out with a new project under a new alias: Ufocus. The sound remains within the Legowelt spectrum however, with layer upon layer of synths falling over themselves in hypnotic motion, over the club-thumping beats beneath. Guidance For The Puzzled is out on Nightwind, double LP.

Kangding Ray
Azores EP

From the waves of emerging synths gliding across high-hat-driven beats on opener '22 Halo', to the catchy and gluggy bassline on penultimate track 'De Tomaso Pantera', Kangding Ray's latest project in 'Azores' is a bold slab of urgent techno. Ultimately it's a fantastic blend of pulsating beats and cinematic soundscapes.

Fear-E
Made In The G60

Glasgow-based producer Fear-E arrives on the Super Rhythm Trax imprint with a four-track, 12” vinyl EP. As with his ‘Dixon Avenue Basement Jams’, his is a very old-school approach to house music, as Made In The G60 demonstrates over its noisy, deliriously fun progression aimed at warehouse parties.

Leif
Igam-Ogam

Igam-Ogam is the new EP by Leif, AKA UK DJ and producer Leif Knowles. It is released on the pioneering UK label, Livity Sound Recordings, set up by Tom Ford AKA Prevelelist.

Petar Dundov & Marc Romboy
Ex Machina

The Croatian-German hook-up that is Petar Dundov & Marc Romboy have already made two EPs together, Capar Tran and Dimension D, forging slabs of what they believe to be real techno music. Who are we to argue? Ex Machina is their third outing taking retro ‘90s techno and giving it a futuristic twist.

Paranoid London
(Vi-Vi) Vicious Games

What Vicious Games to play, what vicious things to do. No, this new release from Paranoid London and Josh Caffe has nothing to do with Chris Isaak’s timeless masterpiece with the similar name. In fact, ‘(Vi-Vi) Vicious Games’ is an altogether different vibe, a gloriously sultry Hercules And Love Affair-style house jam. On the (Vi-Vi) Vicious Games EP the original comes backed with a radio edit and an acid-drenched dub. Great stuff.

Kerrie
Before Calm EP

Kerrie is known for her hard-hitting live sets and is now making her debut on DBA with Before The Calm EP. It is only her second appearance on record following the I Love Acid 10th anniversary compilation. She has been getting her sound right on the live circuit for some time influenced by the UK’s Blawan, NHK yx Koyxen & Hiroaki Iizuka from Japan and trailblazing acts such as X101, Joey Beltram and Surgeon.

Ben Pest
Scourge

Producer and DJ Ben Pest makes a lot of music. His life is built around making music. Apparently, if his mind is not occupied by making music, thoughts of killing people enter his head. Perhaps that’s why he’s given himself the stage surname of Pest. Scourge features some banging techno and remixes by Jerome Hill and Michael Forshaw. On RIOT Radio Records.

Vintage Future
Dookie Machine

Turns out that America can't even provide its own citizens with clean water. In Flint Michigan due to cost cutting measures drinking water was poisoned with lead. Mark Taylor aka Vintage Future has come up with this message in music to try to provoke interest in the crisis. Features suitably dirty beats and filthy disco moves.

Steven Rutter
Science and Neurosis

One half of the electronic duo B12 and owner of FireScope Records, Steven Rutter has recorded and EP with the intention of easing us into autumn. Science and Neurosis conjures up forests and the sky at night, whilst suggesting deep introspection. There’s ambient etherealness  juxtaposed with broken shards of sound.

Project Pablo
Inside Unsolved

Inside Unloved is the new energetic four-track EP from Project Pablo, AKA Canadian electronic artist and maker of irresistible dance music Patrick Holland. Inspiration for the EP comes from Canada’s past electronic music glories, the sounds of labels such as Steel City and Map Music. A euphoric moment on the dancefloor at Montreal’s MUTEK festival provided inspiration for one track, too. 12" on Spectral Sound.

PS + ISF
s/t

L.I.E.S. have a real treat here for fans of the harsher end of European techno. The producers of this EP have tried to hide themselves away under cover of their initials, but we’ve sleuthed that the PS and ISF in question are Dutch fiends Parrish Smith and Interstellar Funk. On these four tracks they unite for a set of no-messing EBM. The slower tempo of closer ‘Collapsed Buildings’ gives it an anarcho-dub feel reminiscent of recent drops from The Bug’s Pressure Records. Good stuff.

Conrad Pack
The Best / The Truth

We don’t know much about mysterious producer Conrad Pack, but what we can say with confidence is that their new self-released 12” contains two cracking techno tunes. Both ‘The Best’ and ‘The Truth’ serve up brisk club grooves that manage to be eerie, paranoid and sexy all at the same time. They're kind of like a more minimal rendering of Surgeon cross-pollinated with one of Pinch’s soundsystem mutations.

Hieroglyphic Being
Synth Expressionism/Rhythmic Cubism

Synth Expressionism/Rhythmic Cubism is the latest LP from one of Chicago's most prolific sons, Jamal Moss AKA Hieroglyphic Being. Moss takes sounds from all aspects of the Chicago dance scene and beyond, seemingly never happy sticking with one genre. Polyrhythmic, polyphonic, anchored by bass, rooted in Chicago, but open to new ideas.

Ikpathua x Anxiety Support Group
Tape 09

London-based label Cong Burn’s Tape 09 sees Anxiety Support Group split one in half with Ikpathua following the split with Carlos (Charlotte Bickley), this time presenting the usual porta-studio improvised jams mixed up with abstract, blissful techno. Presented in a limited run of only 50 cassettes. 

Holden
The Idiots Are Winning

The Idiots Are Winning (now there’s a sentiment that holds up well today) was the debut album by one time overlord of computer music, Holden, or James Holden, as we’ve come to know and love him. It was originally released in 2006 and contains the classic tracks Idiot, Lump, Corduroy and 10101. James Holden went on to make The Animal Spirits, No.2 in the Norman Records albums of the year in 2017.

808 State
Gorgeous

In 1980s Manchester one of the most terrifying things to do (and there were a lot of terrifying things to do in 1980s Manchester) would be to go into Eastern Bloc records and ask for... I dunno the latest dance pop smash by Paul Hardcastle. Behind the counter was Martin Price who would later go on to form 808 State. As you can imagine he had exquisite taste which lent itself to the techno and house explorations he would go on to produce. Gorgeous was their fourth album and features a Joy Division sample, a UB40 rework and the vocals of Liverpool gob Ian McCulloch. 

Jeff Mills
Sight, Sound and Space

Jeff Mills sets off on his latest astral travel with bumper compilation 'Sight, Sound And Space'. Each of the three instalments here feature a carefully curated selection of tracks from across Mills’ extensive back catalogue - 'Sight' consists of stuff he’s made for the screen, 'Sound' collects some of his most sonically intriguing work and 'Space' once again explores his fascination with the cosmos. The accompanying booklet sees Mills illuminating us with the stories behind the music.

Umwelt
Superior Life Forms

French electronic musician and producer Umwelt is known for his love of analogue sound, delivered in a raw and often ferocious fashion. He is the founder of Rave Or Die and New Flesh Records. His new album for Midnight Shift, Superior Life Forms is no let down in terms of his signature sound. 6-tracks of destructiveness.

Richard Fearless
Atlas Of Insanity

Death In Vegas member Richard Fearless gets in amongst it once again on new two-tracker Atlas Of Insanity. The EP’s title-track and A-side is a slamming big-room techno tool that sounds like an old Giorgio Moroder tune in the process of Hulking out. Flip Atlas Of Insanity over and you’ll find ‘New Perspective’, a more cautious and paranoid cut with hints of Ostgut Ton to it.

Stephen Mallinder
Um Dada

It wouldn’t really be accurate to say that we’ve been waiting a long time for a Stephen Mallinder solo LP. This is because the Cabaret Voltaire man’s last (and previously only) album Pow-Wow came out a full 37 years ago, way back in 1982, and as such most of us had stopped holding out for a follow-up. Now we’re pleased to tell you that 1) there is one, 2) it’s called Um Dada and 3) it’s good. This is a record of sprightly oddball techno-tronica that’s not dissimilar to Mouse On Mars or Matmos. Um Dada is out via Dais (Drab Majesty, SRSQ). Please note that the CD release contains two tracks that don't appear on the vinyl editions.

Marcus Schmickler
Particle/Matter-Wave/Energy

Marcus Schmickler is an experimental producer with a 50+ record discography behind him. The latest in a long line of releases is 'Particle/Matter-Wave/Energy' - a work in which techno and noise meet head on. It is one 37 minute long piece, split into two parts - 'Particle/Matter' and 'Wave/Energy' one on each side of the record. On Kompakt.

Luke Hess
Into the Deep EP

Luke Hess runs DeepLabs recordings so please allow him the pleasure of introducing his own 12". What he has given us are three techno tracks that hark back to the classic mid 90s Detroit scene with noisy analogue recording techniques and a whole host of classic gear used as listed in near painful detail in the press release. All three tracks are accompanied and inspired by bible text so join Luke (and his lord) in further lush adventures in sound.

Emika
Falling In Love With Sadness Remixes

A remix EP of tracks from Emika’s sixth studio album Falling In Love With Sadness, released late last year for World Mental Health Day. British post-dubstep producer Pinch turns ‘Eternity’ into something cinematic; techno star Julia Govor opens ‘Run’ up and finds new depths; veteran Rebekah turns the title track into a piece of dark techno; and Headless Horseman almost completely revamps ‘Wash It All Away’. Released on green coloured 12” vinyl.

Special Request
Offworld

The third of four albums expected in 2019 alone by Leeds producer Special Request, a.k.a. Paul Woolford. From his residency at legendary Leeds house night Back To Basics to his involvement on the soundtrack of Blade Runner 2049, Woolford’s artistry is hugely diverse, and this latest double-album Offworld is another demonstration of that. 

Kolsch
1983

On double 12” vinyl or CD from Kompakt. The follow up to Kölsch’s 2013 album 1977 is 1983. Inspired by long car journeys taken during his childhood, it’s happy go-lucky, summer-filled, vibrant techno. Features collaborative tracks with Gregor Schwellenbach, Waa Industry and WhoMadeWho's Tomas Høffding.

Somatic Responses
Assault

Somatic Responses are a duo made up of brothers, John & Paul Healy. They’ve been making industrial techno for the past 20 years. Assault is being released though Scottish techno label RIOT Radio Records. The fact that the pair come from a sleepy mining town in Wales plays into their music as it reflects the mechanical noise that goes on underground.

Jas Shaw
Exquisite Cops

Since receiving treatment for a life-threatening bone marrow disorder, English producer Jas Shaw - one half of Simian Mobile Disco - has embarked on a series of solo recordings during his long recovery, releasing two-track singles every fortnight alongside recording with Gold Panda. Exquisite Cops, a new eight-track double-LP release, gathers up the highlights from this stunning output. 

London Modular Alliance
Turn Off The Light EP

London Modular Alliance is an alliance of three men in London who like modular synthesisers a lot and dislike computers a lot. They enlist their patched-up synthesisers in the holy service of electro, resulting in a lot of wonky bass and frankly evil rhythms. ‘Round the Bridge’ steals the show here with a wicked little groove.

Djax-Re-Up Volume 2

Dekmantel takes another deep dive into the cult techno imprint Djax-Up-Beats for another serving of re-discovered Nineties cuts. The Dutch label played a critical role as a proving ground for some of the most important producers of the last couple of decades, and this double-LP set showcases some of these artists, including Glenn Underground and Felix Da Housecat and covering everything from raging house gems to ambient chill-outs.

Zodiac
Serengeti By Night

A collaborative project between producers Brendon Moeller and Monty Luke, Zodiac lay out an intoxicating mixture of deep, cavernous dub soundscapes on their double-LP debut Serengeti By Night. Using rocksteady rhythms as a foundation, the duo explore psychedelic sci-fi and push back boundaries over the eight tracks.

H-Fusion
Captured Entities

H-Fusion AKA Howard Thomas drops his debut album Captured Entities. The album is partly in the tradition of Detroit heroes such as DJ Stingray and Nate Young, but also comes across as something entirely new. Techno bangers reaching 170bpm are juxtaposed with ethereal, beatless jazz and an altogether more psychotic take on jazz. Most definitely a Detroit album, but a Detroit album with a difference.

Jeff Mills
Moon – The Area Of Influence

Jeff Mills really loves the Moon, and once again here he returns to the subject in order to mark the fiftieth anniversary of the Moon landing. Moon - The Area Of Influence is quality Mills material in that style we know and love, worthy of delivering on the grand cosmic dreams of the Moon concept. Out on the Axis label.

Crossing Avenue
Carmaleonte EP

Third EP from Italian techno duo Crossing Avenue for the Spazio Disponibile label, titled Carmaleonte. This four-track 12” vinyl offers a great deal of variety within its grooves, mixing up regular house rhythms with disruptive elements, creating sparse moments of electronic bliss and bold, forward-thinking soundscapes too.

John Shima
The Lonely Machine

Having spent the 2010’s releasing various EPs of stargazing electro and deep techno, producer John Shima finally summons up a debut LP. The Lonely Machine extrapolates Shima’s twinkling Detroitism out to album length yet manages to keep in all of the melody and colour of his shorter releases. The likes of Space Dimensions Controller and FireScope boss B12 spring to mind when listening to this pleasant, friendly album.

Steffi x Virginia
Work A Change

Sparks fly every time Steffi and Virginia get together. Two of Ostgut Ton’s longest-serving and most beloved artists, the previous collaborations between these two DJ/producers have given us bangers for the ages. The friends repeat the trick on new EP Work A Change, another set of primo Berlin-school house and techno. Outstanding work yet again.

SEER
No Resurrection

SEER are an electronics duo who like the titular beer and the National hail from Brooklyn, New York. They are possibly more fun than both, honing left field dance floor techniques in their studio taking the rhythm of the clubs and injecting it with some studio wizardry. The result is a kind of freeform underground dance psychedelia majoring in electro but blending the possibilities of techno and house into one kinetic splurge.   

Sorcery
Manufactured Conflicts (incl. Samuel Kerridge Remix)

The artist known only as Sorcery has previously contributed muscular, precision-engineered drumming to releases from the likes of Belief Defect and Powell. Now Sorcery steps out with Manufactured Conflicts, an EP that hammers their mighty tub-thumping into a set of driving industrial techno tunes. Recent releases from the Power Vacuum label are recalled - a good thing in our book. Praised by Clouds, Kangding Ray and Peder Mannerfelt, Manufactured Conflicts also features a remix from Samuel Kerridge.

Noah Gibson
Krasch 2 (Convextion & E.R.P. Remixes)

Noah Gibson offers up two remixes of his track 'Krasch 2' on Krasch Records. Both remixes come from Dallas, Texas producer Gerard Hanson - the first mix is Hanson in techno mode as Convextion, and is almost soothing, as it's utterly slathered in white noise. Then we get him switching up into electro mode under his E.R.P. handle where he manages to find the acid within. A very interesting pairing of remixes.

Spacetime Continuum / Scanner / Ross 154 / Leo Anibaldi
DE:10.07

DE:10.07 is the 7th EP in the 10 Years De:Tuned series. Here we have four tracks of ambient techno from a highly respected quartet of producers: Spacetime Continuum, Scanner, Ross 154 and Leo Anibaldi. This uplifting EP perfectly blends the old and the new and is likely to cure what ails ya, so give it a go. 

Koehler
Winged

The latest drop from DISK Records (Bambounou, Harmonious Thelonious) is a set of skull-shaking techno from former Whities/ESP Institute fellow Koehler. Tracks such as the Winged title cut feature kick drums that hit like sledgehammers and hoofing great basslines offset by atmospherics you’d almost describe as ethereal. For related artists think Randomer and Clouds.

AN-i + Unhuman
s/t

AN-I is back on L.I.E.S., this time with UNHUMAN in tow. As one might expect from such an infernal union, the tracks on this self-titled EP are devilish slabs of body music that blend techno, industrial, minimal synth and post-punk influences. The likes of Alec Empire and The D.A.F. are all invoked in the cacophony of scuffed-up drums, yelping vocals and cheap, nasty basslines.

Yu Su

Watermelon Woman by Yu Su is her most dancefloor focused release for a couple of years. Last time she went in this direction was with 2017’s Infi Love - the track that got her noticed. Watermelon Woman is inspired by Herbie Hancock’s classic, Watermelon Man. It will be released on Technicolour - a Ninja Tune imprint.

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.

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.

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.  

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.

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.

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.

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.

Second Freeze / Simple As

Randomer follows up releases on Dekmantel, Clone and L.I.E.S, teaming up with Livity Sound's Hodge for an intense double-tracker on the reverse Livity Sound label. They go to town on this one. Metallic clanks, rapid-fire percussion and annihilating rhythm. Or is that mhtyhr gnitalihinna? 12" on dnuoS ytiviL.

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.

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.

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.

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
Brussels EP

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.

  • 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):
  • Techno / Dub Techno / Experimental House

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.

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
Seasick Acid

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”.

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.

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.

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.

Torn Hawk

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.

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.

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):

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!

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.
