Robert Hood
Internal Empire

When truly groundbreaking records are made, they sound as fresh 25 years after their initial release as they did back in the day. This is most-certainly true of Robert Hood’s minimal techno masterpiece Internal Empire. The album has been remastered and re-cut on CD and 180g vinyl and will be released through its original label, Tresor.

Passarani
W.O.W.

Italian legend DJ/Producer Marco Passarani (Nature, Peacefrog, Generator, Skam, Numbers etc.) drops his first full-length in six years on Dusseldorf imprint Offen Music. Nothing to upset the apple-cart across the eight tracks of W.O.W., just eight cuts of perky club fare replete with pattering 808s and swaying melodies. ‘Get Down’ has a bit of an acid flare to it, but other than that this LP is the soundtrack to the last beach party of the summer.

Marco Shuttle
The Moon Chant EP

The latest drop on The Bunker New York (Donato Dozzy, Gunnar Haslam) comes courtesy of returning hero Marco Shuttle. These three tracks on The Moon Chant demonstrate just why Shuttle is such a favourite down at The Bunker. This is a record of sleek, sexy NYC house that occasionally crosses over into acid - see closer ‘Curve Pericolose’ on that front.

Lowtec
Light Surfing

In the promotion of Lowtec’s new album ‘Light surfing’, there’s talk of “murky bangers” and “sideways beauty”, essential the satisfaction of dance rhythm but achieved in a wayward and unpredictable manner. Lowtec operates with a minimal aesthetic, but it’s one of great economy and precision, with care placed on both caressing and baffling the senses.   

GAS
Zauberberg

Wolfgang Voigt’s second album under his lauded forest techno moniker GAS is back, singly tree-issued on Kompakt. First released in ‘97, Zauberberg offers Voigt’s revolving branches of hazy, throbbing ambient at their most ambiguous, as if unsure of what really waits out there in the woods. The third track especially is one of his masterpieces.

Modeselektor
I Am Your God / Bronko

In the run up to their next album Modeselektor have given the DJs a head start with the release of I Am Your God / Bronko on 12". The press release describes them as "abysmal" but I'm guessing they don't mean in the bad way. This is tough industrial techno built from the sort of crisp sounds we've all come to expect from the German duo.

Jeff Mills
Str Mrkd

Loves a sub-label, does Jeff Mills. His Axis Records imprint already has several offshoots - Luxury Records, Purpose Maker, Something In The Sky - but the Detroit techno legend clearly feels like he needs another pie to stick his finger into. Thus have we the eponymous first release of his new Str Mrkd venture. Music-wise it’s pretty classic Mills, though closer ‘Aquarius’ is a more experimental brand of club fodder than we might expect from him.
  • Genre(s):
  • Techno / Dub Techno / Experimental House

Pom Pom
Untitled II

German techno enigma Pom Pom has followed up last year’s mysterious release, Untitled, with the equally, or perhaps even more mysterious Untitled II. Just like Untitled, Untitled II comes in a black sleeve and is distinctly lacking in track names, which takes this inscrutable approach one step further than Spinal Tap and Metallica did, but this is not for their fans anyway. LP on A-Ton.
  • Genre(s):
  • Techno / Dub Techno / Experimental House

Mix Mup
Clear Drive EP

Here we find The Trilogy Tapes (Anthony Naples, Bullion) inna Mix Mup style. Back on Will Bankhead’s label for the first time since 2015, the latest release from Lorenz Lindner’s long-running project is a typically idiosyncratic collection of deep house/techno experiments. Cuts like the title track bring to mind a more glitchy rendering of Young Marco’s woozy Balearia, while the grunting anti-groove of ‘Flair 2’ nods to the recent TTT drop from Parris.
  • Genre(s):
  • Techno / Dub Techno / Experimental House

DJ Koze
Knock Knock

Extremely weird dance music hermit DJ Koze has found the time between an inexplicable raft of Ibiza appearances to create Knock Knock. Featuring a raft of guests (Bon Iver, Róisín Murphy, Mano le Tough), the album is an array of sunshine-y bangers of all shapes and sizes.

Kamikaze Space Programme & Eomac
ETXC004

Eomac has had a busy 2018. As well as dropping his Reconnect LP and the accompanying Resist All Dogma EP on his own Eotrax imprint he has had a part in four collaborative records for his ETXC series. Following on from unions with Paula Temple, Sean Carpio and Demian Licht we now have the fruits of his labour alongside Kamikaze Space Programme. ETXC004’s ‘Environment 1’ revolves around a lopsided techno locked groove, while ‘Environment 2’ is full of hissing synth drones.

FaltyDL
If All The People Took Acid

4-track EP of classic acid-house from FaltyDL. It takes the ever satisfying bump-and-squelch of acid to brilliant levels of abandon. With titles like ‘Flesh of Acid’, you get a real hint of the kind of potent physicality the release brings with it. Amongst the three original tracks also comes a remix of the title track courtesy of Octo Octa.

House of Daggers
BRKN02

Very limited 4 track 7” of mangled electronic music. With analogue gear from the golden-age of IDM and a vicious industrial streak borrowed from Throbbing Gristle, House of Daggers’ BRKNO2 is a raw burst of breakbeat techno. There’s only 200 of this rude rave hybrid and it comes with a download code too.

DNCN
BRKN01.

Perfectly described in the press release as a purveyor of hallucinogenic wonky funk-infused off-kilter glitch house, DNCN gets his first release in seven years with BRKN01. Released by BRKN.DNCFLRS on 7” vinyl in a chunky Kraft card sleeve for that vintage generic techno aesthetic. Lots of fun from the Mancunian tech wizard.

Peggy Gou
It Makes You Forget (Itgehane) [Remixes]

Peggy Gou's It Makes You Forget (Itgehane) was without a doubt one of the best dance music tracks released in 2018. Here, she has asked three very different artists to take it to task. Jamal Moss aka Hieroglyphic Being, I:Cube and Jay Daniel have produced three remixes united only in their use of Gou's unbelievably catchy singing.

Life In Sodom
The Stains / Alessandro Adriani Remix

As Mannequin Records closes in on 100 releases Alessandro Adriani’s label dips its toe into the reissues market. This one is a 1991 single from Goth-wave legends Life In Sodom. Both versions of ‘The Stains’ are gloriously vampiric combinations of darkwave, techno and industrial rock. The same applies to 1992 cut ‘Phantasmagoria’ which crops up on the B-side. Label boss Adriani provides a club edit of ‘The Stains’ to round the EP out.

Greg Beato
Dade EP

Greg Beato comes from Miami. Wasn’t he fortunate to be born with such a name given his chosen career? Anyway, with Dade EP, he presents an EP of varied sounds, underpinned by heavy bass. He is happy for you to experience this by testing out the subs in your car, by stretching the range of your pricey headphones or on the dancefloor for the full visceral effect. 5-track EP on Ni Un Pero.

Synectics
The Purple Universe

‘90s clubbers may recognise the name Synectics. The duo of Marco Repetto and Stefan Riesen dropped a string of records on labels including Rephlex and Delirium back in the day. The Purple Universe, their only LP, came out in 1993 on the former. Now Musique Pour La Danse have resurrected the album for a reissue. The braindance-techno hybrids here are sometimes heavy, sometimes beautiful things that aren't dissimilar to what Rephlex boss Aphex Twin was up to contemporaneously. Three of the tunes here are being pressed on vinyl for the first time.

Rrose
Beware of Shells

‘Beware of Shells’ is a five-track EP of lysergic techno bangers from the London-based artist Rrose. These are grooves stretched way out, sprawling tracks that emphasise digital muck and writhing modulation. It’s a release that comes from her Eaux label and pursues a bloody-minded approach to the techno genre, happy to divert away from what’s commonly expected with deviations into tripping drone.

Nuel
The Gentle

Acid chef Nuel’s new EP on Midgar Records is a solid four-part hypnosis. Right from the first kick drum until the final reverb, The Gentle will have you bobbing your head off into a deeper trance, taking you far away from your mundane worries while you space off to some psychedelic Italian techno.

The 7th Plain
Chronicles III

Luke Slater’s post-rave project The Seventh Plain changes gear for the third installment of his compilation series. Chronicles III. Here the music is more free form and built on fractured rhythms. The music here is taken from Slater’s releases on General Production Recordings label. Double LP and CD on A-Ton.

The 7th Plain
Chronicles II

Chronicles II by The Seventh Plain compiles previously released tracks from the albums The 4 Cornered Room and My Yellow Wise Rug plus a bunch of previously unreleased tracks that any fan of Luke Slater’s work would not want to be without. The project set out to stretch the techno genre as far into outer space as possible. Double LP and CD on A-Ton.

The 7th Plain
Chronicles

Techno legend Luke Slater is compiling his The Seventh Plain project over three releases. Chronicles I was released in 2016, now with the release of Chronicles II and III, we have this box set containing all three. The spacey, post-rave explorations were far reaching and emotionally affecting. 6LP box set with essay by Joe Muggs and stickers on A-Ton.

Discrete Circuit & Mark Broom
MBDC

Some techno-ass techno here from Discrete Circuit and Mark Broom. The pair have crossed paths before, but MBDC is the first time that they produced a body of work together. They come through with three big-room tools that occasionally have an acid whiff to them (see ‘MBDC2’). H4L gives ‘MBDC2’ a skittering electro flip to close out the record.

Marie Davidson
So Right EP

Marie Davidson drops an EP centred around her song ‘So Right’, a track that was one of the standout moments of her excellent Ninja Tune full-length Working Class Woman. The So Right EP splits neatly down the middle - the first half presents an extended version of the title track and a John Talabot remix, the second gives us a Davidson original entitled ‘La Ecstase’ as well as a Silent Servant re-rub.

Makaton
Immaculata

Birmingham techno veteran, Makaton, drops a 4-track EP on Voitrax. His first release for the label was club banger, Around The Floor, in 2017 and he has previously released on Token and Blueprint. On Immaculata he mixes club-ready beats with dub and industrial motifs, perfect loops, unstructured noise, hi-hats and drones. 12” EP on Voitrax.
  • Genre(s):
  • Techno / Dub Techno / Experimental House

Robotiko Rejekto
Rejekto

To celebrate their thirtieth release Optimo Trax have looked back, found this gem from 1987 that label boss JD Twitch loved, and thought it would be a fitting treat to release it for it’s anniversary as well. Produced by Ralf Henrich and Andreas Tomalla, Rejekto was techno before it was techno, with a slamming 80s snare.

Ruskin & Broom
Domwen

So, it's time for a new Ruskin & Broom EP! James Ruskin and Mark Broom -- stalwarts both of the UK Techno scene -- are together and continuing their collaborative techno project. 'Domwen' features 3 new slices of razor-edged techno -- heavy on the bass, deep of groove with surreal synths. Tasty 12" on Blueprint.
  • Genre(s):
  • Techno / Dub Techno / Experimental House

Bryce Hackford
:::::::::::::

Style-roving New York producer Bryce Hackford is here with a EP on Youth. With previous work tracing from synthpop to ambient, this here trio of new tunes is all rather wonky, improvised lo-fi house. The A is particularly heavy and minimal with a pair of chunky cuts, all twanging bass and carbonised drones. Bryce reserves the B for a more melodic focus to the hooks.

Shake
5% Solution

Prayers have been answered! This sought after 4-track EP is a secret weapon, high on many a Detroit techno fiend's wants list. Originally released on Juan Atkins hallowed Metroplex imprint back in 1993 -- the same year Anthony "Shake" Shakir released his debut under the Shake handle on Kevin Saunderson's KMS sister label Trance Fusion. Shake has a unique, raw and quirky approach to techno which has always given his tracks a distinctive character and super funky sound. He's a real demon on his drum machines - you'll hear why he can count the likes of Autechre among his legion of fans. Shake is arguably Detroit techno's best kept secret - this record still sounds fresh twenty fives years after it was created.

Greg Beato
Cum In Peace

Cum In Peace is a slice of old school, club ready wax from Miami’s Greg Beato (Beato by name, beato by nature). This limited edition 12” EP is released on his own Ni Un Pero label, the quality matches his releases for L.I.E.S. and Apron. He has also released music on Russian Torrent Versions.

OAKE
Live in Marseille

VAAGNER present a vinyl edition of a cassette originally released in 2015 on Ascetic House. 'Live in Marseille' documents a stunning performance from OAKE, the duo of Eric Goldstein and Konstanze Bathseba Zippora, captured in Marseille, France, 18 October 2014. If you've heard their records on Downwards, Stroboscopic Artefacts and SNTS you will know that the duo deal in an intense sound which is as heavy as it is beautifully ethereal. A mesmerising ride through heaven and hell. Remastered and cut @ Dubplates & Mastering.

Soluce
Birth

Vibrant Music continue to release music that is vibrant with Birth, an album by Soluce. That’s the long-time-coming collaboration between Konstantinos Soublis (Fluxion) and Savvas Ystatis (Omicron in the 90s), who are not only firm old friends but neighbours too! They put their combined skills to great use here, producing resonant, minimal and lush ambient techno.

Neville Watson
The Midnight Orchard

Don’t Be Afraid have kept in touch with acid tech-houser Neville Watson, who returns to the label with his first LP in five years. Cover art’s a bit ‘Ghost in the Celt’, innit. He’s sounding more serious and pensive than before, but there’s nowt more boring than the dead-serious techno producer conceit - Watson knows this and ensures there’s always plenty of fun along the way.

Will Long
Long Trax 2

Will Long, makes luscious ambient drone under the name Celer, but he also makes gorgeous deep house under his own name (sometimes also in collaboration with DJ Sprinkles). Here he presents his second full-length album of politically charged dancefloor cuts, Long Trax 2. This CD edition on Smalltown Supersound features all six of the new Long Trax.

Marc Romboy & Petar Dundov
Dimension D EP

Yer boys Marc Romboy & Petar Dundov return to Systematic (Steve Lawler, Will Saul) with their second joint EP of 2018. Dimension D works the same channels as its predecessor Caper Tran. Both the title track and ‘Meteor Shower’ are the sort of melodious big-room tech-house tunes that KiNK - another former collaborator of Romboy’s - would be proud of.

J. Albert
Small Room EP

Super-prolific techno footmover J. Albert comes back for another 2016 12", this time channeling dusty inner city beats for a good 4 tracks. Judging by the quality of A2 cut 'Ting Waan', this will be stomping, keeping bodies warm and limber deep into the winter nights and beyond. While he's just got things moving with his own Exotic Dance label, this one comes out on Black Opal. Fair's fair in the realm of the thunk.
  • Genre(s):
  • Techno / Dub Techno / Experimental House

Sciahri
Quiet Witness

Sublunar Records boss and UNKNOT member Sciahri (Sciahriar Tavakoli) has his third bite of the Black Opal cherry. New EP Quiet Witness is a set of murky, mysterious techno that sounds like it was constructed largely from sonar signals. Anyone who’s dug recent drops by Pessimist or Sciarhri’s fellow Black Opal alumni Lyubocha should get to Quiet Witness sharpish.
  • Genre(s):
  • Techno / Dub Techno / Experimental House

Positive Centre
The Leaf Switch

Opal Tapes. Very good label. One of the best, in fact. If you’re unfamiliar with the Teesside imprint then Positive Centre’s The Leaf Switch is as good a place to start as any. This is a record of terse, frosty electronics/found sound instrumentals. They range from dog-eared synth ambiences to the kind of obtuse anti-techno that The Trilogy Tapes has been so keen on recently.
  • Genre(s):
  • Techno / Dub Techno / Experimental House

Annanan
New Wave Of Nature

Following releases on Forbidden Planet, LL.M. and Pinkman, Annanan lands on Opal Tapes sister label Black Opal with a fine 4-track EP. Opening with the woody stomp, dreamy keys and squelchy bass of the titular cut and onto the lost in the night, melancholy of 'Bomb'. Over on the flipside 'Sphere' thumps with chunky drums, sci-fi electronics and spectral melodies. The EP closes with the sinister groove of 'Gone' which utilises the hefty skeletal drums which are present throughout the EP which ride underneath a quivering synth and dread filled piano. Tidy stuff throughout as ever from Black Opal.
  • Genre(s):
  • Techno / Dub Techno / Experimental House

Lyubocha
Berzerk

This one doesn’t muck about. Opal Tapes offshoot Black Opal (Patricia, J. Albert) drop an EP of stern club fare from Lyubocha. Berzerk's four tracks bring together the hard techno of Ostgut Ton, Ross From Friends’ lo-fi house flex and bubbling acid grooves ala Matrixxman. They are the sort of DJ tools that will breathe new life into any mix.
  • Genre(s):
  • Techno / Dub Techno / Experimental House

Eric Copeland
Mixbone

A bunch of artists pile in on a couple of tracks from Eric Copeland’s 2017 LP Goofballs. The remixes here generally preserve the same zany machine malfunction vibe of the originals. Highlights include Physical Therapy’s halftime techno flip of ‘Mixer Shredder’ and Machine Woman’s snappy club refit of ‘Neckbone’. Also, NHK yx Koyxen’s version of ‘Neckbone’ makes you wonder what Wiley would be doing these if he’d ever developed an interest in electro.

Djedjotronic
Cruising

Over the past few years Djedjotronic has released many a fine wedge of club tackle on Boysnoize Records. As such, a little stint on Central Processing Unit (DMX Krew, Neil Landstrumm) seems like a logical next step. Cruising contains four chunky electro-techno hybrids with a nice retro heft to them. The Drexciya is strong with this one.

Demian Licht & Eomac
ETXC003

The third record in Eomac’s ETXC series sees the Eotrax boss join forces with Demian Licht for a record of experimental electronic fare. On these two tracks the producers busy themselves with combing the outer reaches of techno. Their explorations see them end up in a no man’s land between dub techno, deconstructed club music and synthetic ambience.

Charlotte de Witte
The Healer EP

Belgian DJ and producer Charlotte de Witte got out five EPs last year, and continues to be a veritable techno factory in 2018 with this, her third for the year so far. Title track is shuddering, high-tempo atmospherics with skittering hats, carried on a belt of intense choir drones and noirish synth strings. The EP continues with the hypnotic ‘Silence’, muscular ‘Kuda’ and heady ambience of ‘Song of the Wood Nymphs’.

Antigone
Rising

It’s the new album by New York City all-female country rock band Antigone Rising. No, wait. Sorry. It’s the new album, Rising, by Paris all-male techno DJ and producer Antigone (one Antonin Jeanson). Behind him are many EPs and no LPs and, well, he’s out to change that right now. Rising finds him on good form with delicately produced and melodic techno, occasionally batting eyes at IDM.

Norman Nodge
Embodiment

Lawyer and DJ Norman Nodge has been a resident of Berghain since 2005. Yes, that’s what they call their captives. Here’s the new Norman Nodge record anyway, available right here on Norman Records. This is his first release in some time but it packs a reliable Berlin punch with four deep, minimal excursions into breaks, acid, dub stabs and that.

Umwelt / Ryan James Ford
Untitled

Two sides of club-ready tools from Repitch Recordings. On Untitled they've got two tracks a piece from New Flesh / Rave Or Die's Umwelt and Ryan James Ford. Value! Umwelt's pair fall on the grittier electro/acid spectrum, while Ford's are a more modern: sleek and with drone. It's got to be good, one of them's Berlin based!

Planetary Assault Systems
The Electric Funk Machine

Planetary Assault Systems’ The Electric Funk Machine turned twenty in 2017. Considering that so many of the current crop of rave revivalists - Lone, FaltyDL and that - are jacking Luke Slater’s late-’90s steez, the time feels right for one of his finest achievements to be rolled out and receive another round of applause. This LP is a nice balance of European and Detroit techno stylings. Reissue via Peacefrog.

The Lotus Eaters
Desatura

Please be very very careful. This is not the 1980s Lotus Eaters famous for their 'First Picture of You' single. Instead these are two techno artists Lucy and Rrose. Here the two step away from the usual techno instrumentation and use synthesized sound and feedback to generate both textural and percussive elements to their music.  

SHXCXCHCXSH
OUFOUFOF

Enigmatic Swedish producers SHXCXCHCXSH follow up August’s SHULULULU EP with a new full-length on their own Rösten label. The title of OUFOUFOF is to be read onomatopoeically. Rather than attempting to pull the sonics of club music apart as they have done on previous records, their fourth LP finds them lock into one rhythmic idea for the duration of each track. Not that they’re phoning it in, mind - the likes of ‘UUOUUOUU’ are caustic visions of techno.

Sofheso
Sofheso Archive

Over two hours of prolific Japanese producer Sofheso's recordings have been collated onto this deluxe archival double cassette retrospective, spanning the years 2014-2017. The selection was whittled down from eleven hours of material he sent the First Terrace label and is a revelatory showcase of the artist's unorthodox approach and singular vision of techno in its varying mutations and permutations. His original rhythmic architecture and fresh approach to texture creates complex sound sculptures that are a pleasure to wander inside as well as view from a distance.

Robert Hood
DJ-Kicks

The latest instalment in the ever-growing catalogue of stellar mixes in the 'DJ-Kicks' series arrives from truly a giant. It's pioneering Detroit techno legend Robert Hood of course. The Motor City's very own, and a founding member of Underground Resistance with Banks and Mills, Hood laid down a blueprint for minimal techno. His DJ-Kicks here presents a crucial, timeless snapshot of techno history: 22 tracks on a mixed CD including 4 of his own, new exclusives to this release. Also on double unmixed LP, on !K7.

Deena Abdelwahed
Khonnar

Deena Abdelwahed has her roots in the Tunisian alternative music scene. She went on to DJ everywhere around the world, including Boiler Room and Concrete. She has an EP under her belt which centred on club music. She has changed gear somewhat for her debut album, Khonnar, which is an atmospheric work, centering on introspection. Limited edition deluxe LP with poster on Infine.

PSSU
PSSU

You could have put money on this happening soon as Daniel Avery and Richard Fearless started working out of adjacent units in Leamouth studio. PSSU’s eponymous debut release finds Avery and Fearless combining their powers for the forces of good. Good techno, that is. While ‘307309’ is a psychedelic electro escapade, ‘Fabricated From Steel’ is droney and doomy.

Hugo Massein
Remnants / London Underground 2014 - 16

Six tracks Hugo Massein produced back in 2014-2016, during the peak years of the deep tech scene in London. Massein has been a key player in the scene and Remnants / London Underground now offers us the opportunity to hear some of his most creative and varied work in the genre. Released on Keysound Recordings.

Max Graef
Lo Siento Mucho Pero No Hablo Tu Idioma

Berliner, Max Graef, returns four years after his highly-rated debut Rivers Of The Red Planet with Lo Siento Mucho Pero No Hablo Tu Idioma - or I’m Very Sorry But I Don’t Speak Your Language, as my basic Spanish leads me to understand. Graef says of the record that it he approached it in an unmusical way - more experimental than its predecessor in terms of instrumentation and recording venues. Double LP on Tartelet.

Not to be outdone he also offers up his own remix of Outer Acid. Four track 12” single on Alleviated.

Opening himself up to the interpretation of others over a series of EPs, Mr. Fingers, AKA Larry Heard, has allowed Aleksi Perala to remix Inneracid and Outeracid - two tracks taken from the Mr. Fingers album Cerebral Hemispheres. This is the third and final installment. Two track 12” on Alleviated.

Fernando
s/t

Spooky electro from the Brooklyn based experimental electronic music label L.I.E.S.. Fernando takes the long stagnant genre and twists it into something that feels new. There's a touch of the hauntological about these tracks too, as though Fernando has had to dig them up and rescue each one.

E-Talking / Laksa
Blue 04

E-Talking and Laksa contribute a track each to the latest entry of Whities’ Blue series (BFTT, Lanark Artefax). ‘Telephone Rose’ may be E-Talking’s solo debut (they’re active as part of French duo Nummer) but the aesthetic is remarkably fully-formed here. The tune oscillates between cavernous big-room techno and trippy samples to hypnotic effect. On the flip Laksa brings some soundsystem heat similar to his recent drops for Ilian Tape.

Mr. Fingers AKA Larry Heard has got a bunch of artists together to remix tracks from his Cerebral Hemispheres album over three 12” singles. The first installment sees Larry Heard and Rodaidh McDonald test their remixing skills with Praise To The Vibes and Crying over You. Four track 12” single on Alleviated.

Peverelist
Roll With The Punches (Kowton Linear Mix / Kowton Dub Mix)

Bristol's dubstep artist, curator and shopkeeper Peverelist gets his tune "Roll With the Punches" reworked on this 12" of the same name, with two attempts at the same remix tried on by another one of Bristol's notable electronic artists Kowton. He goes in for a dub remix the second time around, though you can only hear that one on vinyl. 

Fort Romeau
SPC-140

Ghostly International sub-label Spectral Sound (Matthew Dear, DMX Krew) are promising that there’ll be no re-press of this new Fort Romeau EP, so best get SPC-140 while it’s still hot. Not that you needed any incentive, mind. FR’s on a hot-streak at the moment - his single ‘Pablo’ was recently named ‘Best New Music’ by Pitchfork - and it continues with these three tracks of melodic, moody tech-house.

Various (General Ludd, Herva, Nene H, Altered Natives)
DBA039.5

The excellent Don’t Be Afraid return with another EP of weapons-grade club tackle for their .5 series. A roster of General Ludd, Herva, Nene H and Altered Natives serve up techno four ways here. Ludd and Herva’s A-sides are dubby shapeshifters not dissimilar to the soundsystem stylings of labels like Idle Hands and Livity Sound. On the flip, H and Altered Natives forego subtlety altogether - ‘Retto’ and ‘Dancing Girl’ will tear the dancefloor a new one.

2017 was pretty busy for Kölsch. The Danish producer released his third full-length record (1989, via Kompakt), dropped a couple of EPs and did a DJ set from high up the Eiffel Tower. It’s no surprise that he’s eased up a bit in 2018, but the one born Rune Reilly Kølsch has still managed to get a new record out before the end of the year. Both cuts on Speicher 106 are the sort of widescreen tech-house on which Kölsch has built his empire.

Peverelist
Bluez (Classic mix) / Und_92

Man like Peverelist takes us on a trip down memory lane. Back in the late ‘00s the Bristolian boss was still making stuff that was recognisable as dubstep. ‘Bluez’, a tune that appeared on his 2009 debut LP Jarvik Mindstate, is a sick cosmic 140-bpm jam. This Punch Drunk reissue also features ‘Und_92’, a 2008 track exhumed from the vaults for this drop. Heard with modern ears the seeds of the bassweight techno style Peverelist would go on to popularise with his Livity Sound label are definitely kicking about here.

The 15 Dead Minutes
Bio-Evolved

It's been a wee while since we last heard from The 15 Dead Minutes aka David Froud (Heuristic Audio) and David Campbell (Delinquent Dialect). Their collaborative work first appeared on Irish label Trensmat and later on Sunil Sharpe's Earwiggle imprint. Now the duo return with an ace four-track EP of seething and infectious cuts blurring the lines between techno/electro/industrial. All tracks bang and rattle in all the right places and are heavy in terms of both sound and emotion. Only 300 copies with killer artwork by Yamako King.

Seán Carpio & Eomac
ETXC002

The second instalment of Eotrax’s collaborative series sees label boss Eomac of Lakker hook up with Migro/Klein artist Seán Carpio. On ETXC002 the pair bounce various kinds of feedback off one another to produce a record of drone, noise and concrète. These needling, abrasive tracks are not for the faint-hearted - enter at your peril.

Steven Julien
8 Ball

Steven Julien has taken a break from his Funkineven moniker of late to release a few records under his given name. 8 Ball grows the lo-fi boogie style of April’s Bloodline mini-album. While ‘TEER’ is a luscious jam inspired by ‘80s electro and synth-funk, A-sides ‘BLK808’ and ‘POT808’ are both tough drum machine workouts that would sound at home on labels like Central Processing Unit and Super Rhythm Trax.

Aphex Twin
Selected Ambient Works 85-92

Not sure that you need us to introduce this one to you. The album that broke Aphex Twin to the masses (relatively speaking), Selected Ambient Works 85-92 starts with two genuinely sublime pieces of music, ‘Xtal’ and ‘Tha’, which your collection literally cannot be without. The whole thing is great though, whether for solo listening late at night or for esoteric dancefloors. An absolute classic.

Bruce
Sonder Somatic

After four years of building buzz via releases on labels like Timedance, Idle Hands and Livity Sound the Bristolian producer Bruce drops his debut LP via Pangaea/Pearson Sound/Ben UFO’s Hessle Audio. The one born Larry McCarthy has had a hand in the popularisation of the West Country soundsystem techno style that has made waves in the clubsphere of late. As such it's no surprise to find that the eleven tracks of Sonder Somatic hold bassweight and beats in perfect balance.

Anna
Razor

São Paulo producer Anna Miranda aka DJ Anna partners with ol’ London technoheads NovaMute for Razor. The title piece has a focused, funky minimal dancefloor feel, but also keeps fun in reserve. Still, it’s outshined by its pals ‘Dreamweaver’ and especially ‘Escapism’, each with a heavier, faster floor rhythm and each making wonderful use of stripped down arpeggios and refined atmospherics.
  • Genre(s):
  • Techno / Dub Techno / Experimental House

Rene Wise
Loud Colours

Luke Slater’s Mote Evolver (Planetary Assault Systems, LB Dub Corp) with a typically hi-octane techno set here. Loud Colours comes courtesy of promising young talent Rene Wise. On only his second EP the Brighton-based producer turns in four DJ tools that will perk up any set with their pounding drum programming and insistent, slightly disorientating synth grooves.
  • Genre(s):
  • Techno / Dub Techno / Experimental House

Various (Overlook, Pessimist, Mønic, Grebenstein)
Themes & Variations

Mønic’s Osiris Music (Kryptic Minds, Kamikaze Space Programme) drop four tracks that map out some different kinds of weightiness currently popular in the clubsphere. Overlook continues to impress with the nightmarish D n’ B of ‘Former Self’; Pessimist’s ‘Indigo’ is an eerie bit of soundsystem techno that would sound great soundtracking an episode of Black Mirror. The flipside sees the label boss deliver two wedges of dark, dubby almost-techno, the second of which is a Grebenstein collaboration.

Maelstrom
Fragment

More electro from the Central Processing Unit label. This time it's from Maelstrom, who returns to the label after July 2018's ECZO, with the four-track EP Fragment. The bass is as tough as you might expect, and I think I detect a hint of acid? I'm no expert. Most impressively Maelstrom is not afraid to vary tempos over the EP so Fragment will have something for every DJ.

Cromby
Futurola EP

For a while Denis Sulta was using the Sulta Selects label as a vehicle for releasing his own stuff. However, with the new Sulta Selects Silver Service series that appears to be changing. The sub-label kicks off with a release by Irish producer Cromby. Futurola might not have been made by Sulta, but the three tracks here bear all the hallmarks of the Glaswegian’s own work. That means Chicago house beats, rave breaks and whooping vocal samples are the order of the day.

Paranoid London
The Boombox Affair

With a nostalgic taste for late 80s acid house, a DIY punk attitude, and whiny 303s, Paranoid London are guaranteed to deliver a dancefloor wrecker. The Boombox Affair is dedicated to LGBTQ+ activist Bubbles Bubblesynski, murdered in San Francisco, meaning that your hard-earned pounds will go to charities while you get a thumping 12". 

Idealist
Mind Field

Enter Idealist’s Mind Field and get lost in the perfectly dubbed-out immersive house and techno spaces that lie within. The crafty reverbs and selectively-applied filters do a great job of making these tracks feel like 3D spaces, without sacrificing addictive danceability. Open the gate of the Mind Field, and close it behind you so the cows don’t get out. On Echocord.

Neil Landstrumm
Threesome

Valuable reissue of Neil Landstrumm's killer DBX/Chicago/UK Bleep inspired, jacking EPs for Peacefrog. This triple 12" set includes; 'Index Man EP', 'M Cap EP' and 'Inhabit The Machines' which is worth grabbing for dancefloor slayer 'Blam The Target' alone. Landstrumm was on fire during this early period in which he also released his debut album 'Brown By August'. All this stuff still holds up and will stonecold rock a party. It' no wonder he was often labelled king of the 909 at the time.
  • Genre(s):
  • Techno / Dub Techno / Experimental House

Pangaea
Bone Sucka

This heavy new twelve of oldskool breakbeat techno/hardcore/house schooled cuts by Kevin McAuley aka Pangea (also one third of Hessle Audio) goes out to all the suckers of bones out there - presumably various dogs. Despite quite a dark style, his scattered range of samples comes across as a little irreverent and cheeky. The title track is pretty irresistible in this regard, while b-side ‘Proxy’ is led by intense sequences of mutating piano tonk.
  • Genre(s):
  • Techno / Dub Techno / Experimental House

Various
Patina Echoes

Patina Echoes is a compilation that sees the Timedance label giving the kids a run out, or showcasing new talent at least. Simo Cell, Metrist, Cleyra, Neinzer, Rae, Via Maris, Nico and Neinzer are among the fresh new acts to feature. Although compiled from different artists, the album is sequenced to be a coherent work in its own right. Double LP on Timedance.

A New Line (Related)
A Roomful of Lovers

Limited hand painted 7" following on from critically acclaimed Dead Albatross nominated LP on Home Assembly. Features an original cut of non-album track 'A Roomful of Lovers' plus a Miles Whittaker (Demdike Stare) edit.  A New Line (Related) is the solo project of Andrew Johnson (Remote Viewer, Hood) creating gorgeous, minimal swathes of ambient techno with nods to Deepchord and Gas. 

Terence Fixmer
Through The Cortex

Terence Fixmer’s back on Ostgut Ton with a new LP. Through The Cortex is the producer’s sixth full-length (though first for the Berghain’s label) and having been around the block a few times the Frenchman is trying something a little different this time. It’s still techno, for sure, but there’s also a synthwave influence in here that has more than a whiff of Suicide to it.
  • Genre(s):
  • Techno / Dub Techno / Experimental House

Beneath
Cloudy

A14 is a highly-promising offshoot of Blackest Ever Black that has already fronted releases by Rhythmic Theory and Pessimist. They keep up the good work on their fourth drop, a set of proper soundsystem muck from the consistently brilliant Beneath. ‘Cloudy’ fronts a wiggling bassline and stuttering drums in a manner that brings to mind a souped-up version of Pearson Sound’s ‘Earwig’. On the flip we get ‘Outsource’, a dark techno number that’s pretty similar to Pessimist actually.

Billy Nightmare
Reality Check

Some ye olde Chicago House fayre here. Billy Nightmare dropped the Reality Check EP in 1996 around the same time that he was also putting stuff out on labels like Trax under the moniker Mystic Bill. The four tunes here are elegant house tunes with earworm basslines. Originally released by the Sounds. imprint, this reissue comes courtesy of Dark Entries.

DJ Lag
Stampit EP

South Africa's gqom pioneer DJ Lag is certainly no slouch when it comes to making dancefloor killers. Lag's Stampit EP follows his self-titled debut of 2016 and features 4 more hard-edged percussive cuts. Heavy hitting drums are at the fore of the sound Lag introduced to Durban and the world. It's rhythmic, it's potent, it's energetic; let's do this! 12" EP on Goon Club Allstars. 
  • Genre(s):
  • Techno / Dub Techno / Experimental House

The Field
Infinite Moment

Hope is something we could do with in 2018. Axel Willner AKA The Field had been toying with various new ideas for his sixth full length album before realising perhaps that we could do with an album that is warm and comforting. Therefore 'Infinite Moment' is hued with a rich gauze of straight to the heart electronics to soothe your mind in troubled times.  

Lawrence
Illusion

After a couple of LPs for Mule Musiq, Illusion sees Lawrence back on Dial, the label he founded alongside Carsten Jost and Turner. This is another record of finely-calibrated central European techno and deep house from the one born Peter Kersten. The likes of Move D and Will Saul would have been pleased to come up with something like the delightfully bleep-bloopy ‘Treasure Box’.

Various
Air Texture Vol.VI – Selected by Steffi and Martyn

The Air Texture series reaches volume six and for the occasion drafts in Steffi and Martyn for another double-CD's worth of previously unreleased gems. Consider the calibre of the selectors -- famous both for their individual spins on house and techno -- and then consider the brief as per usual: leftfield selections, ambience aplenty and techno in name only, too widescreen perhaps to be limited to the dance-floor. 26 tracks, including appearances by: dBridge, Shed, FaltyDL, As One, KiNK and of course, Steffi and Martyn themselves. The vinyl option is a double-EP with 8 tracks.

Collector
Triple Crown

Collector is a new project from Australian Jason Campbell, the mind behind the synth meditations of Stitched Vision. As Collector he is just as interested in electronic sounds, but this time it's all about the rhythms: firm drum machine programming punching through Campbell’s modular synthesis set-up for some slightly off-kilter techno. Triple Crown is the first release on Drawing Heat Records, limited to 300 vinyl copies.

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.

Peverelist
IDLE050

Bristol’s Idle Hands celebrates hitting fifty releases by going back to where it all it began - Peverelist was responsible for the label’s first drop back in 2009. Though sounds and styles have come and gone in the intervening nine years, Pev's ability to create dancefloor movers remains unparalleled. On IDLE050 we find the former dubstep overlord taking turns at going house (‘Left Hand’) and techno (‘Right Hand’).
  • Genre(s):
  • Techno / Dub Techno / Experimental House

Rhyw
Cave Walls (Part One)

Cassegrain member Alex Tsiridis takes it solo for a second time under his Rhyw alias. Cave Walls (Part One) features roughed-up dancefloor tracks and spaced minimal ambient: two different ways of combining traditional and more experimental electronic musics then. This is focused material, with no messing around to be heard. 12” on Avian.

Martyn
Voids

It’s been a difficult couple of years for Martyn. Since 2014's The Air Between Words LP, the 3024 boss has narrowly avoided death by heart attack. His good friend Marcus Intalex wasn’t so lucky, passing away in May 2017. These experiences shifted Martyn’s musical horizons greatly, causing him to reassess his psychedelic take on classic American and European club stylings. On Voids, he is still Martyn, but not as we knew him, using the record’s techno/house/garage flex as a way to both rediscover and reshape his artistic voice. ‘Manchester’ is a touching tribute to the late Intalex. Out via Ostgut Ton.
