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’).

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.

E-Unity
Tallarita EP

French producer E-Unity (one Loïc Berger) releases his inner bee for London’s FTD Records. The title track does a mode-switching dance around clubby references, which is both awkward and absolutely compelling at once. Nailed it. ‘Everlasting Legacy (Collage Mix)’ follows a similar method, while the other two tracks allow a little more consistency.

Porter Ricks
Shadow Boat EP

Returning after a whopping 17 year hiatus, Porter Ricks are back. The duo return with Shadow Boat EP, a deeply nuanced comeback that explores unfathomable ambience. Glitchy and gurgling synths ebb away across the 3-track offering, which concludes at the pulsating, dancefloor-ready Harbour Chart.
  • Genre(s):

Linkwood
Fresh Gildans

Are you allowed to go at 150 BPM? Isn't that one of the forbidden tempos? Well no one ever told Linkwood who's determined the make you dance (fidget?) faster than you thought you could. Fresh Gildans features three new tracks from the electrofunk producer. But don't get too excited, the B-side takes things a bit easier.

Spiral Deluxe
Voodoo Magic

Rather than a lady, Spiral Deluxe are channelling Voodoo Magic but thats not the only thing of note about this supergroup, their drummer and percussionist is none other than Jeff Mills. Yes that Jeff Mills. They are a group of skilled musicians making music with no creative boundaries blending jazz, funk pop, house and techno in one enormous globule of sound.

Isabella
Whistle

He’s a busy bee, that Peder Mannerfelt. As well as touring and releasing his own records at a rate of knots, the Swedish producer also manages to make time for running his own Peder Mannerfelt Produktion label. The latest PMP drop comes courtesy of Boston-based artist Isabella. The five tracks of her Whistle EP can be placed into two camps - ‘Residual’, ‘Penchant’ and ‘Vain’ are all whirligig techno jams that recall the work of Mannerfelt himself, while ‘Dicey Takes Its Form’ and ‘I Could Get You’ are eerie ambient things equal-parts Mark Mothersbaugh and Pram.

Chris Liebing
Burn Slow

After a career spanning a quarter of a bloody century, big techno lad Chris Liebling is finally making one of his dreams a reality. He's always wanted to make an album like Burn Slow, slow minimal techno, achingly restrained. He's accompanied by a number of others, most notably Gary Numan, providing some uncharacteristic spoken word on 'Polished Chrome (The Friend Pt. 1). On Mute.

Juan Atkins
Dimensions / Flash Flood

Life's Good is a new label about to bring us reissued classics from the golden age of Detroit / European Techno. Their inaugural release is this lush double-header from Juan Atkins: Dimensions / Flash Flood. Originally recorded in the early 1990s and issued on the famous "Panic In Detroit" compilation from 1992 under his M500 / Model 500 guise, "Dimensions" is a percolating, bleepy charmer now given its own side of loud-cut wax on this 12", freshly remastered by Rashad Becker.  Meanwhile on the flip, Flash Flood appears as a fresh twist on the original with acidic synth and ominously deep sub-bass.

Otik
Top Ten EP

After a run of releases on labels including Dext Recordings and Brotherhood Sound System, young talent Otik moves to the next level and drops via Keysound (Wen, Okzharp & Samrai). The tunes that make up Top Ten are a fresh mix of sounds. While grounded in the soundsystem techno style of labels like Timedance and 3024, Otik isn’t afraid to incorporate elements of UK Funky and dub-techno into his work. It makes for a pleasing mix.

Steven Rutter & John Shima
Step Into The Light

FireScope Records is run by one Steven Rutter who on Step Into The Light is collaborating with John Shima. These tracks all carry an optimism that is more than welcome in 2018. Addictive drum buttons layered with a warm ambience contrast with tracks that have a bit more bounce.

Differ-Ent
It's Good to Be Differ-Ent

‘It’s Good to Be Differ-Ent’ is the release from DJ Bone under his pseudo name ‘Differ-Ent’. This record has been described as a thunderous and paranoid collection of music that has been mastered to align with more new-wave experimental techno, rather than old school electro. This is available on triple Vinyl LP.

Black Merlin
Oba Enka

George Thompson is the man behind the mysterious Black Merlin project if you didn't know; mystique somewhat vaporised. Here he is for his first EP on Mannequin records, and it's a three-track thumper. Bringing the Noir to techno and the voodoo to the dance-floor once again, some manic bass-lines with unrepentant drones and pummelling kick-drums enter the fray, to slay. Great. 

Thomas Fehlmann
Los Lagos

Thomas Fehlmann has been keeping busy. Just three months after the release of The Orb’s No Sounds Are Out Of Bounds LP, Fehlmann is set to drop his first solo full-length since 2010’s Gute Luft. Los Lagos contains eight polished pieces of techno and features a collaboration with Max Loderbauer. As with Gute Luft this one’s out on Kompakt.

Brendon Moeller
Set In Motion EP

The newest EP from Brendon Moeller, also known as Echologist and Beat Pharmacy, is a dubby affair. Reminiscent of Basic Channel’s finest, Set in Motion echoes, thuds, and crawls through your ears. The tape hiss and distorted drums take your brain on a vacation to grimy factory basements. If you listen closely, you can almost see the first rays of sunlight creep in.
  • Genre(s):
  • Techno / Dub Techno / Experimental House

Round Two
New Day

Back in the 1990’s Basic Channel were reinventing the wheel by fusing club rhythms and dub textures to create what we now know as dub techno. However, BC wasn’t the only thing that the duo of Mark Ernestus and Moritz Von Oswald were up to at that point - they found time to extrapolate the style out to deep house and garage on their sporadic Main Street Records drops. ‘New Day’ (it’s vocal edit, shortened version and dub) is one of the prime examples of the style and well worth the reissue. The duo were going by number of releases for their artist names at this point, hence why the New Day EP was released under the moniker Round Two

Patricia
Free Lunch

After releases on labels like Spectral Sound and Opal Tapes, Patricia makes the switch to Nona Records (Robert Aiki Aubrey Lowe, Kadaver) for the latest drop. The one born Max Ravitz - you may also know him as any from Inhalants, Masks and Pulpo - serves up five more slices of hissing electro here. Free Lunch will please anyone who dug Patricia’s recent triple LP Several Shades Of The Same Colour.

John Beltran
Ten Days Of Blue

Classic '90s ambient-techno album alert! It's a crisp new reissue, a repress of John Beltran's emotively delicate and expansive Ten Days Of Blue. The original LP was issued in 1996; another wonderful record to follow up Beltran's debut 'Earth & Nightfall' and a precursor to the altogether more far-away wistful 'Moving Through Here'. Beltran's work is never to be faulted but Ten Days was exemplary: textured and emotional electronica. Subtle chords, Tangerine Dream-inflected floatiness and Kraftwerkian melodies abound. Double wax on Peacefrog.
  • Genre(s):
  • Techno / Dub Techno / Experimental House

Recondite
Rainmaker

After posting two entries on their Realm Of Consciousness compilations, German mainstay Recondite can now add a full EP for Afterlife to a CV that already includes drops on Ghostly International, Hotflush and Innervisions. The six tracks that comprise Rainmaker are brooding dystopian tech-house that is not dissimilar to fellow Afterlife signees Tale Of Us and Fideles.

Marquis Hawkes
The Marquis of Hawkes

Like many of today’s electronic artists, Marquis Hawkes bases himself in Berlin. On his new album The Marquis Of Hawkes he takes us on a journey through beatless drones, deep dub, body jerkers and some retro bass jabs. Jamie Lidell and Ursula Rucker make guest appearances. Double LP on Houndstooth.

Total 18

In the year of their twenty-fifth birthday, how apt that Kompakt should run the latest instalment of their Total series to twenty-five tracks? Well, on the CD at least - there’s just eight on the vinyl, but that does come with a download code. Total 18 is a mixture of fresh faces (Ghost Vision, Aaron Ahrends) and seasoned vets (T. Raumschmiere, Geiger). The famed German techno label blends young and old with aplomb here.

Lucy
Tarkomania

Electronic bod Luca Mortellaro aka Lucy aka label head of Stroboscopic Artefacts unleashes this three tracker onto 10" wax. Expect dark-hued angular dancefloor that is both mysterious and succinct. A small glimpse into the world of this famously nuanced electronic composer.  A unique object and the latest in a line of 10"s from the imprint. 
  • Genre(s):
  • Techno / Dub Techno / Experimental House

Carl Craig
Carl Craig Sessions

Carl Craig is a phenomenal Motor City DJ-producer with an impressive back catalogue; Sessions is a timely reminder. There are early Paperclip People tracks and masterful, classic remixes for Junior Boys, Delia Gonzalez & Gavin Russom, Rhythm & Sound and Beanfield. A classily danceable collection and a beautiful retrospective on triple LP, re-pressed by those nice peeps at !K7.

Don't Mess With Cupid, 'Cause Cupid Ain't Stupid

Nina Kraviz’s TRIP hits twenty releases with this compilation. Don’t Mess With Cupid, ‘Cause Cupid Ain’t Stupid features old TRIP faves - Bjarki, Biogen, Kraviz herself - alongside some big pulls like Aphex Twin alias Universal Indicator. As anyone who is familiar with the label will be expecting, the sound of the album flits between acid, fast techno, rave ambience and more.
  • Genre(s):
  • Techno / Dub Techno / Experimental House

Helena Hauff
Qualm

Expert DJ Helena Hauff presents her second full length - a suite of her own productions, which are potent enough to stand tall alongside any of the gritty, futuristic electro she might choose to spin of an evening. Qualm is made up of direct hardware jams, and has appropriately hard-kicking results: ready for the floor, but with a certain sense of hovering dark atmosphere around it (see the German translation of Qualm: smoke).

Nicolas Bougaïeff
Permutation Djinn

Permutation Djinn is a record by Nicolas Bougaïeff that is inspired by Permutation City, a novel by Greg Egan. With touches of music familiar to the likes of Ricardo Villalobos, Charlotte de Witte and Chris Liebing, this is one that contains head banging, floor filling and club friendly tracks alongside sophisticated electronic music to compliment Egan's writing. Available on vinyl 12", and released on Novamute. 
  • Genre(s):
  • Techno / Dub Techno / Experimental House

Paranoid London
Paranoid London

Some dance floor delivery from Paranoid London. This self-titled release features the tried and tested booty mover "Paris Dub". As a whole, the record does not let up and is packed with certified acid house vibes throughout. Striding all things Detroit, Chicago, techno and house these jams will work everywhere - one for the heads!

Randomer
Slicing

Here we find Randomer return to Dekmantel’s UFO Series for the latest set of his particularly brain-bending brand of soundsystem techno. The four dubs on Slicing all go equally hard, but in subtly different ways. For instance: while opener ‘Van Pelt’ recalls a toughened-up version of Cervo’s Afro-Disco, ‘Shadow Harp’ features a pummelling kick pattern that wouldn’t sound out of place on a Beneath tune.

Ross From Friends
Family Portrait

Give Rossie the CDJs, Marcel. While he may have originally emerged back in 2015 as the clown prince of lo-fi house, Ross From Friends showed off a more mature aesthetic when he debuted on Brainfeeder in early 2018. He follows up that EP, Aphelion, with his first full-length. Family Portrait is a well-rounded distillation of the producer's multi-faceted style, drawing as much influence from his new boss Flying Lotus as it does the fidgety compressed club jams of contemporaries like Project Pablo.

Emptyset
Emptyset

Emptyset is the first record by literal-building-rattlers Emptyset, first released in 2009. Here we get an early version of the duo’s remarkably stern explorations of frequencies and vibrations, rhythms and outright bass-noise. Very precise, very intense, and often fairly danceable. Double LP reissue on Subtext.

Lårry
sys_001

Techno of dark portent from Berlin’s Lårry here. Much of sys_001 skulks in the shadows, the alien-transmission synths and insistent kick drums trailed through the darkness by reverb. It’s an eerie listen not dissimilar to Lucy or Kangding Ray. Only on ‘systems_obfuscate’ do things boil over - this is a distorted, panicky DJ tool with shades of Schwefelgelb to it.

Tale Of Us
fabric 97: Tale Of Us

The long running Fabric CD series continues with a beguiling set of tracks from Italian duo Tale of Us, following several years after their appearance in the equally celebrated Renaissance mix series. Their trademark take on the dreamier, more melodic side of modern techno and house is presented in style.
  • Genre(s):

XOR Gate
Conic Sections

Tresor present yet another alias from Heinrich Mueller - real name Gerald Donald. The legendary Detroit producer has been behind some of the most impressive, immersive and cutting-edge electronic music to emerge from the motor city; Dopplereffekt, Drexciya, Elecktroids, Arpanet,Der Zyklus, Glass Domain, Intellitronic, Japanese Telecom, Rudolf Klorzeiger, Z Therapy, Abstract Thought, Daughter Produkt, Flexitone, Gedankenexperiment, L.A.M., NRSB-11, Zerkalo, Zwischenwelt. This new project is a single 30-minute piece which was originally commissioned by ArtCenter South Florida in Miami. If you skipped geometry class, fear not as Donald's sounds require no understanding of his concepts to be enjoyed. Sit back as three dimensional shapes plot new trajectories as they emerge from the speakers.

Terre Thaemlitz / DJ Sprinkles
Deproduction EP 2

Terre Thaemlitz’s LP Deproduction was a bold, challenging and typically fearless piece of sound art. The arresting original of ‘Admit It’s Killing You (And Leave)’ brought together post-minimalist piano composition with discomforting samples. Here, all is stripped away bar the keys to leave an uncanny spool of music. Deproduction EP 2 also has Thaemlitz turning in an edgy, deeper-than-deep house remix of the same piece under the banner of her DJ Sprinkles project. Great stuff.

Don't DJ
All Love Affairs Fail But They Never End EP

Wise words from Don’t DJ there. All Love Affairs Fail But They Never End is a somnambulant, wistful collection of techno-noir. Don’t DJ’s originals range from purring electronica in the vein of Jan Jelinek (‘Veles’) to lengthy and pensive synth ambiences (‘Two Of Pentacles’). Newworldaquarium provides a deep, minimal and ethereal re-rub of ‘Veles’.

Seraphim Rytm
Prayers By The Lake

The first release on Mirae Arts comes courtesy of Seraphim Ritm, an alias of the artist you may know better as Damaskin. Prayer By The Lake is a four-part suite of glacial techno as cold and crisp as the snow-covered landscape on its cover. The stargazing sounds of Detroit are invoked here, but something about this EP situates it very much on planet Earth. It’s not dissimilar to something you might find coming out on Tresor. Nice work.

Dan Curtin
The Silicon Dawn

Dan Curtin’s The Silicon Dawn gets re-issued by Peacefrog. This LP is classic Detroitiness of the highest calibre, combining as it does richly expressive pads with twittering synths and propulsive drum takes. This one originally dropped in 1994, the same year Peacefrog also released some top-level work by Luke Slater and Planetary Assault Systems. In 2013 The Silicon Dawn featured in a Fact Magazine list of the ‘Greatest Techno Albums You’ve Never Heard’.
  • Genre(s):

Phase Fatale
Reverse Fall

In a way it’s surprising that Ostgut Ton have never released anything explicitly inspired by J. G. Ballard’s Crash, such is the label’s affinity for all things dark and doomyful. Still, better late than never. Reverse Fall is Phase Fatale’s debut release on the Berghain’s in-house imprint after graduating from its Unteron sub-label, and he nails both Ton and Ballard’s dystopian aesthetic first-time. Four wedges of foreboding and cinematic Berlin techno to write off a car to.

Will Long & DJ Sprinkles
Mint / Clay (Long Trax EP 2)

Terre Thaemlitz’s Comatonse Recordings label is rolling out a three-part series of releases from Will Long. The Mint / Clay (Long Trax EP 2) has two tracks from Long (who also makes ambient work as Celer), as well as two overdubs by Thaemlitz themselves, under their DJ Sprinkles alias. Everything here is borne of a long-term engagement with house music and its implications, and this pair of 12”s will be crucial for all Thaemlitz followers.

808 State
ex:el

Think back to 1991, when 808 State were at the peak of their techno powers. You had a great time losing your mind and body to these original bangers didn’t you? Now you can jog your memory again with their third album ex:el (featuring guest appearances from Bernard Sumner and Bjork!), reissued here on yellow vinyl with 4 bonus tracks. Limited to 750 copies worldwide.

Earthen Sea
An Act Of Love

Earthen Sea is the solo project of Jacob Long, also of the punkish outfit Mi Amo. The music he makes as Earthen Sea however is fairly different, being a form of dub techno that leans so far into ambient music that at times you can just forget about the dancefloor. Big wam sweeps of sound will swallow you up white the 4/4s keep you moving. New album An Act Of Love is released by Kranky.

Richard Fearless
Overview Effect Remixes

Like a snake swallowing its own tail, the Drone label’s fifth release, by Richard Fearless, is now being remixed to form the sixth release. Luke Hess steps up on the first side, with finely acid-tweaked version of Overview Effect. On the flip, DJ Richard takes ‘Metal Dub’ into electro-dub territory. Crucial fresh takes from both producers.

Black Noise
Nature Of The Beast

Mike Grant (AKA Cool Peepl) and Damon Peterson (AKA 8088, Baby Pop, Damon Lamar) have got together as Black Noise to release Nature Of The Beast via Metroplex. If you’ve read this far, you’ll already know that this is essential techno. It was pressed in Detroit too. Perfect. Repress 12" on Metroplex.
  • Genre(s):

Container
LP

This LP by Container is called LP and is released by Spectrum Spools, but please note that it is wholly different to the previous Container LPs released by Spectrum Spools, also called LP. This new one, recorded in 2017, is of course of a barrage of powerhouse techno with rough, grainy edges: dark ecstatic club power.

Various
Colund1

This compilation consists of electronic music made using the Colundi sequence, a 128-tone scale that taps into some strange philosophical and biological fundaments. This non-Western scale was developed by tireless electronic experimenter Aleksi Perälä and former Rephlex head honcho Grant Wilson-Claridge. Things tend to lean towards the more off-kilter side of techno, with a lot of classic drum sounds and some gorgeous harmonies. Capsule and Tunnel One’s contributions are particularly exciting, the former an eerie choir-led stroll and the latter pulling off some classic sci-fIDM.

Lord Of The Isles
DFSANT03

Well within the techno realm lies an approach that uses production as a means to abstraction. The 'DFSANT' series explores this concept, and on the third outing burns the rule book several times over through lofi sound walls, emotionally obscure melodiousness and distinct links to nostalgic electronica.

Mark E
Product Of Industry

Mark E hails from the West Midlands, and identifies the industrial background of the area as an influence on his sound, particularly on this album, Product Of Industry (obviously). But, refreshingly, this isn’t just a byword for ‘heavy’ and ‘dark’ music. Mark E takes the mechanical relentlessness of industry, but tempered with warm analogue synth sounds. Its a strong combination.

Various
E123 EP

Sähkö Recordings sub-label Puu (Jimi Tenor, Soft Focus, try not to laugh at the name) presents a various-artists selection. E123 is made up of four pieces of gently-bobbing downtempo electro. Ni Ko and Jarno Valli impress the most with their entries of R2-D2 weirdness (the former) and cerebral Balearicism (the latter).

Rasmus Hedlund
Intet Efter Allt

Finnish label Ljudverket make it into double-figures courtesy of another drop by Rasmus Hedlund. The four tunes of Intet Efter Allt (Nothing After All) are icy affairs that bring together big-room techno, acid-techno, dub-techno and a few other strands of that there techno. Sombre synths and minor-key pads abound whether Hedlund is operating at 120 bpm or 140 bpm. Imagine a moodier version of Bjarki.

Varg
Crush

The fifth and final installment of Varg’s Nordic Flora series lands via Posh Isolation (Internazionale, Croatian Amor). Those familiar with the previous four entries will find plenty more to enjoy across these fourteen tracks. Weaving in and out of the worlds of club tracks, techno, synth ambient and power electronics, Varg has created another set of industrial-strength electronic music with a heart. Guest appearances come from spoken-word artists AnnaMelina and Chloe Wise.
  • Genre(s):

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.

Grad-U
Dream Observer

The first release on Echo Echo, a sub-imprint of Danish label Echocord (Fluxion, Rod Modell), comes courtesy of Grad_U. Both sides of Dream Observer are lengthy exercises in dub techno, though they go about their business in different ways. ‘Observing The Night Sky’ is a nicely detailed dancefloor number, while the fifteen-minute A-side ‘Jacob’s Dream’ spirals off into foggy synth ambience.
  • Genre(s):
  • Techno / Dub Techno / Experimental House

Vactrol Park
Music From The Luminous Void

Electronic duo, Vactrol Park follow up their debut EP with Music From The Luminous Void, their first long player. They use modular synths to create atmospheric textures, drum machines to create more complex beats than previous recordings and an ever swelling bass sound. Sample-heavy here, ambient there and in places stubborn monotonous rhythms add to the debut LP’s dynamism. 180g vinyl LP on Malka Tuti.
  • Genre(s):
  • Techno / Dub Techno / Experimental House

D'Marc Cantu / Black Meteoric Star
Split Concept

Traxx’s Nation label is always a sure thing when it comes to odd variations on the blueprint of rugged hardware house music, and the pairing of D’Marc Cantu and Black Meteoric Star on this split release is a prime example. Cantu is actually in a relatively restrained mode here, burrowing into meditative arpeggios and scuffed beatdowns on “RDDS”, while Black Meteoric Star creates a jarring but alluring minimal wave abstraction on the live version of “Me And My Rhythm Box”.

The Black Dog
Black Daisy Wheel

Beloved electro-grumps The Black Dog are back with a pair of distinct albums on the theme of dismal, hysterical post-truth media society. Black Daisy Wheel tackles its dystopian theme in a subdued, ambient style, with uneasy textures and characteristically gloomy synths drifting about. Occasional beats find their way in, such as on the dubby ‘We Must Repeat’. There are also moments of total, aching beauty, such as the climax of ‘Cognitive Dissident’.

Will Long
Sallow / Pine

Will Long’s politically engaged deep house music is back in the form of his new album Long Trax 2, which continues the habit of mixing samples from the likes of Barack Obama with meditative, melancholy pads and beats. Sallow / Pine is one of three 12” versions of the album’s material, featuring two cuts in fully DJ-ready format. On Smalltown Supersound.

Mantra / Various
Mantra Knows House

'Mantra Knows House' is mixed by Mantra (Bunker) aka Myraidd (Creme Organization) - a seventy minute mixtape of squelchy acid house basslines, stuttering drum machines and spoken vocals. Digging deep into the foundations of classic/ oldskool (mostly) Chicago trax. Cataclyst release this limited yellow C70 cassette with laser-cut 303 circuit diagram packaging. Funky, messy house music in the mix and impeccably packaged.

Spectres
WTF

I mean what in God's name is going on here? There's just 250 of these and you get a 12" on 'windscreen' vinyl, with an air freshener, bag of sand etc etc.  The record takes a look back at their previous 'Condition' LP with one track lifted from the opus and a scattering of remixes from the likes of Metrist and Yeah You and Giant Swan folks.

Taraval
No Coast

In four psychedelic and disorienting tracks, Taraval’s EP ‘No Coast’ immediately pushes the listener into claustrophobic isolation. Two tracks in though, and the native San Franciscan adds spatterings of colourful hopefulness, like an unexpected bunch of daffodils in a techno dungeon. It’s the electronic equivalent of the arrival of spring. Taraval has previously released under Four Tet’s Text Records label.

Taraval
Taraval II

Release number two from Taraval, cannily titled Taraval II. The 12” EP is released by Text, the imprint of Kieran Hebden (aka Mr Four Tet). These four tracks have cool, stuttering rhythms and a fresh feel to them: this certainly sounds like a member of the extended Four Tet family. Limited edition 12”.

Surgeon
Force + Form Remakes

Late 90’s hard techno business from master of this-sort-of-thing Surgeon. Force + Form Remakes accompanies the reissue of the album, with Surgeon himself providing two brand new spins on the material, as well as a take from Mick Harris, formerly of Napalm Death. As firm and heavy as ever from Mr Child. 12” on Tresor.

SSJJ and Devin Dare
APRON32

What could very well be the heaviest and most thudding sounding bass drum I've ever heard on an opening track, APRON32 is the release from SSJJ and Devin Dare on Apron. This two track split Vinyl 12" is a cracking addition to any 'sort-of' hip-hop record collection and is a genuinely decent attempt at the lo-fi vibe.

Bulkhead
Aft Pleasure

A thirteen track release from Bulkhead called Aft Pleasure. This is their debut record and it's got a whole load of techno influenced tracks on it. A nice little touch from the band is that they've put together a bonus CD 'DETROIT ~ LIVE AT THE SHELTER' with both the vinyl copy and the CD. Released on 2MR.

Transformation / Beau Wanzer
Kozmik / Orbit

This split 12” on Nation offshoot Kode plays two of techno’s more idiosyncratic voices off against each other. Transformation’s offering is a hypnotic slow-mo grind, full of faraway screeches and eerie percussion. Kind of like Kraftwerk’s ‘Autobahn’ if Kraftwerk had actually been Fuck Buttons and the record was cut at 33 when it was meant to be cut at 45. On the flip, L.I.E.S./Jealous God bloke Beau Wanzer gives us a track called ‘Oklahoma 3’, which sounds nothing like any of the music from Oklahoma. It actually sounds like a darkwave rendering of Hype Williams.

L.B. Dub Corp
Side Effects

You may know Luke Slater best from his work in Planetary Assault Systems, but he also has a side-hustle in the form of techno project L.B. Dub Corp. Side Effects, the first LBDC release since 2013’s Unknown Origin LP for Ostgut Ton, has turned up on Slater’s own Mote-Evolver imprint. It contains more wedges of hard-wired Funktion One fodder with a slight acid tang.

Sharplines / Nathaniel
Out of Control

The new 12” on Ancient Methods Persephonic Sirens label is a split release between Sharplines, who contributes the title track Out Of Control and Nathaniel, who contributes three bangers. This is ideal for anyone who yearns for a bit of EBM infected, hard, heavy techno that will make every day feel like the weekend.

Kölsch
1989

1989 marks the third and final installment of Kölsch’s autobiographical trilogy. It being the year he hit his teens and his parents getting divorced, Kölsch disappeared into music. Uplifting, colourful, and playful soundtracking through techno, house and classical score with collaborator Gregor Schwellenbach. LP comes with Download code.

Ross 154
Fragments

From the mists of 1993 and Eevo-Lute, it's Ross 154 (Jochem Peteri / Newworldaquarium) with Fragments. 4 slices of deep, opaque, mysterious techno and soft ambient interludes. Recorded at Stefan Robbers' parents' house in Eindhoven, the guys channeled their formative influences: hip hop, Brit Soul and Duran Duran melancholy; while absorbing UK scene techno -- Kirk Degiorgio, B12 -- plus second-wave Detroit (Carl Craig, Kenny Larkin). A classic, then.

Fluxion
Ripple Effect

When electro pioneer Fluxion gets creative, he really goes in. The result of a two-year experiment, this 9-track vinyl release is the soundtrack to a film that doesn't exist, an evocative and compelling record that weaves together a subliminal story with loosely structured film score tropes. Think less dance-floor bangers, more complex, thought-provoking soundscapes.

Shorelights
Ancient Lights

Rod Modell AKA Deepchord (see also  Echospace, Waveform Transmissions, Transformations) has hooked up with the two blokes from Detroit’s nospectacle, Chris McNamara and Walter Wasacz to become Shorelights to make some ambient techno. Amber Lights is a passionate exploration of space, body and mind. Limited edition double 12” on Subwax bcn.

Richard Fearless
Night Blind

Richard Fearless, of Death In Vegas, joins the Drone label’s white label series with this 12”. One track per side, exploring ambientish and acidish vibes respectively. Both cuts were recorded in Metal Box container studio. Night Blind comes in a limited, numbered edition of 300 stamped 12”s, so probably don’t wait around too long.

Raw Ambassador
Shadows Of Evil

Antonio Barbetta’s Raw Ambassador moniker holds no punches or pretences, with releases on Reach Another System, Sama, and UN.T.O. he follows his namesake with raw and hard industrialised techno that is specifically made for underground clubs with strobes and cages, with an air of 80s doom. 12” on Mannequin.

Modeselektion Vol. 04

A good four years after Modeselektion Volume 3, the latest instalment of the much-loved Monkeytown Records series rolls into view. This time it’s dropping in collaboration with Ninja Tune and features a line-up full of big-hitters. Alongside the obligatory Modeselektor entry we get new jams by Actress, rRoxymore, Peder Mannerfelt and many more.

In Aeternam Vale
Funkytown

Funkytown: will you not take me there? A renowned synth user called In Aeternam Vale is considering it. Pulled out of his archival hat, this 12" delivers three irresponsible techno hits that both rave and rage, spanning an eleven year history of IAV dancefloor shenanigans. So... are you taking me to Funkytown or what?

Anthony Linell
Alienation From Self

Northern Electronics (The Empire Line, Varg) with another cheery-as-a-tax-return EP. In fairness, they do tend to be pretty good, and the latest one from label mainstay Anthony Linell is no exception. Alienation From Self contains three pieces of needling, claustrophobic techno that will really sort wheat from chaff in the club.

Le Officine Di Efesto (Donato Dozzy & Retina.it)
The Elements

Though their catalogue currently numbers under fifteen releases, Italy’s Spazio Disponibile are building a reputation as a voice to watch in European techno. They’ve scored another direct hit with The Elements, a five-track release from Le Officine Di Efesto (the collaborative project between Retina.it and label boss Donato Dozzy). The pair cover a lot of ground here, moving between slow and psychy DJ tools (‘Sulphur 16’), leftfield groove tracks (‘Plasma Hymn’) and far-out synth experimentation (‘Ode To Carbon’) with great control.

Buttechno
ZCAPRI

Buttechno is such a cool name, although I did originally read the press release as 'a faint rumble is heard from behind the horizon Buttechno cheeks'. It's a fart joke if you haven't already gathered, *one person slowly claps*. ZCAPRI is released on a four-track 12" vinyl, on Zodiac 44. This is the seventh of twelve releases from Buttechno. 

Mount Kimbie
Love What Survives - Remixes Part 2

After giving Nina Kraviz the keys to the car, Mount Kimbie are releasing another 12" of remixes of tracks from their latest album Love What Survives. These lads have friends in high spaces, the aforementioned Kraviz is joined by Marcel Dettman, Gerd Janson and Ellen Allien to round out this star-powered series.

Robert Hood
Clocks / Low Life / Go

One of the foremost figures in minimal techno since the beginning of the 1990s, Robert Hood is still going strong. ‘Low Life’ accompanies a wonky little organ motif with a stomping tempo, ‘Go’ goes deep with a samba layout and minimal bleeps, while highlight ‘Clocks’ ingeniously switches up layers of stuttering snares over a windy, rubbery bed. It all comes off as very deftly composed, dynamic and lush.

Robert Hood / Floorplan
Funky Souls

This 12” vinyl was originally released in limited edition in 1996, Rush Hour have repressed this Robert Hood classic for everyone to enjoy once again. Hood’s Floorplan series created to incredible funky disco house. The original mix is perfectly minimal in its groove, and the club 246 mix features a sample from Kool & The Gang - Open Sesame.

Clay Wilson
Osho EP

Clay Wilson’s Osho lands on The Bunker New York with great gusto, delivering total power-groove to the dancefloor. And the 12” doesn’t let up either, following Osho with three more Osho’s, courtesy of Derek Plaslaiko, who goes Oogly Boogly, Jason Loveland, who gives a Twisted Interpretation, and rrao, who edits. Strong stuff. 12” vinyl.

Ploy
Footprints In A Solid Rock (Beatrice Dillon / Peder Mannerfelt Remixes)

A startling bill makes up this one for Timedance. Reworks of Ploy's low-key, dubby squelch piece "Footprints In a Solid Rock" come from hero Beatrice Dillon, who dissolves the drums and heightens the dub, and Peder Mannerfelt, whose lurching techno experiments continue as he attempts to straddle his own punchy sound with the minimal leanings of Ploy. Aye!

Model 500
No UFO's Remixes

Juan Atkins’ calling card to extraterrestrial life sounds as vital now as it did back in ’85, but the key building block in what is now called techno has never received a modern re-rub. That all changes as second generation Detroit hero Moodymann turns in something of a cover version of the legendary electro jam while Swiss mnml ringmaster Luciano taps up the clicky, percussive vibe that he was pushing in Ibiza ten years ago by way of a remix.

Selekt life with this four-track curation via Modeselektor which features four different body-shaking dancemakers at work; the group themselves, to start things off, plus noise thriller Peder Mannerfelt, Larry D and Solid Blake. How about that for a compilation? The fourth in a heady volume.

Modeselektion Vol 4 EP 2 contains tracks by Nottingham’s Matt Cutler under his Lone alias, German dance trio, FJAAK, Germany-based techno and house producer Matt Edwards, AKA Radio Slave (also produces as part of the duo Rekids with James Masters) and Scottish genre-blender Claude Speeed. 12” on Monkeytown x Ninja Tune.

Modeselektion Vol. 04 EP4

Berlin-based dub, techno and house practitioner, Rødhåd, the dark and powerful Vatican Shadow, AKA American, Dominick Fernow, Danish dance guy, Kasper Marrot and German technohead Fadi Mohem each contribute a track to the latest in the taste-making Modeselektion series, Modeselektion Vol.4. 12” EP on Monkeytown Records x Ninja Tune.

Levon Vincent
NS-21

Lord of wax Levon Vincent offers two buzzing cuts of who knows what. I would predict something deep and minimal, but these ones are being described as "razor-sharp", which could well mean we're in for something a little more confrontational, to suit him seemingly weaponising his vinyl with a swing of the arm on that front cover. Careful, Levon!

Surgeon
Basictonalvocabulary

Tresor are going about reissuing a few classic LPs from hard techno master Surgeon. 1997’s Basictonalvocabulary is the sophomore album from the Birmingham DJ/producer and also the first full-length he cut for the Berlin label. With its relentless drum programming, booming bass and busy lead lines Basictonalvocabulary would help define the sound of both Surgeon and Tresor for years to come. An essential cop.
  • Genre(s):
  • Techno / Dub Techno / Experimental House

Ø [Phase]
Boundary Interactions

The tautologically named Ø [Phase] returns to Token for a 12" of progressive and long form techno. B-side and title track 'Boundary Interactions' storms over the 17 minute mark with a tension balancing tight rope walk that sustains it for its length. Anxiety and relief on two sides of wax.
  • Genre(s):
  • Techno / Dub Techno / Experimental House

Answer Code Request
Gens

Four years on from the debut Answer Code Request LP Code and the Berghain resident issues this murky, tense follow-up. Gens is a pretty unremitting listen. Most of the tracks here see monolithic four-on-the-floors shrouded in great billows of hissing reverb. Unearthly synths and clanking percussion skulk in the fog. Only on the likes of the mournfully weightless ‘Orarum’ does the haze clear.
