Torn Hawk
Wormquest

Coming at ya from waaaaay over on the other side, Torn Hawk makes their debut outing on the Unknown To The Unknown label with Wormquest. Over the four tracks on this wax there will be some funky mechanical stuff, techno reinforced with guitars and a hefty dose of floor-filling insanity. 12” EP on UTTC.

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.

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.

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?

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Lone / FJAAK / Radio Slave / Claude Speeed
Modeselektion Vol. 04 EP2

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.

Rødhåd / Vatican Shadow / Kasper Marott / Fadi Mohem
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.

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.

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
Luminosity Device

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

Inigo Kennedy
Strata

Sixth album from extremely prolific techno producer Inigo Kennedy. Despite having released over a hundred (!) releases since 1996, he has remained inventive and forward thinking. Kennedy has a particular ear for melody and sound design, which lets him stand apart from the never-ending flood that is techno releases. 
  • Genre(s):
  • Techno / Dub Techno / Experimental House

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

Dub Taylor
Caves & Cages

Dub Taylor (Alexander Krüger), also known as Tigerskin, The Magic Soul Orchestra and others, breaks a ten-year silence by joining Dirt Crew recordings with an album of versatile, atmospheric techno in Caves & Cages. There’s dreamy ambience, with indistinct, momentary glimpses of samples through the murk, all the way up to funky, deft and melancholy techno tunes. Very nice.
  • Genre(s):
  • Techno / Dub Techno / Experimental House

Jordan GCZ
Fission Transmission

A brand new one from Jordan GCZ here, who sets his synths a nice workout-challenge: this thing arpeggiates like crazy. Fission Transmission is accompanied by an extra-drum version and a no-drum version on the flipside: perfectly suited to either an ambient drift-out at home or a busy floor-filling at the club. 12” from Off Minor.

Furfriend
Endless September

This is Furfriend's debut album out on UK based electro/techno/experimental record label Perc Trax. Furfriend are industrial techno art-rock duo Dingo Tush and Das Uberdog. Refreshingly odd and full of dark humour, Furfriend are not like other techno artists. 'Endless September' offers a combination of political satire and dark carnal body horror/celebration that manages not to take itself too seriously whilst still being quite serious. In their own words, "Furfriend is everything you never dared to sex about".

Octave One presents Random Noise Generation
N2 The Enfinate

The press release describes Random Noise Generation as Octave One's alias here but kinda seems like the secret's out? In any case, N2 The Enfinate is a tidy collection of electro clangers. If you need to juice up your set with a bit of no-holds barred intensity, this wouldn't be a bad record to reach for.

Syclops
Pink Eye

Once you get past the title, Pink Eye - the third LP from Maurice Fulton’s Syclops project - is a nice wedge of leftfield club fare. Alongside a band including Mim Suleiman, Fulton has produced eleven tunes that range from relatively straightforward bongo-techno workouts (‘Spin Cycle’) to a weird sort of acid-disco-funk hybrid (‘The Skipper’, ‘Caryll J The Superhero’). We suggest you … keep an eye on it (har de har). Out via Running Back.

Karen Gwyer
Rembo

Fabulously creative spins on techno music from Karen Gwyer, back at last with a whole new full-length LP. Eight tracks, generally developed through going-with-the-flow in live performance, whip up a frenzy of pulsing rhythms, nodding to Detroit and weirder underground scenes alike. Rembo is out on Don’t Be Afraid.

Walls & Dimensions is, like the Sunn O))) album it’s title reminds me of, something of a pinnacle to Deadbeat’s work. Eight tracks (spread over a DJ-friendly three vinyl records) including cello from Maarten Vos and vocals from Fink and Delhia de France, this album on BLKRTZ is a rich masterpiece of techno and other electronic forms.

Shelleys

New release from Via Maris released on cool DJ Beneath's record label, his first since releasing on cool label Livity Sound, and built for the likes of cool ex-club Plastic People. Shelleys is three tracks of bass heavy techno that still manages to show the breadth and depth of Via Maris's talents.

Ascion
Joy Dexon Club

This new release from Repitch Recordings co-bossman Ascion is described as a “mini LP”, as opposed to an EP. I can see why, as Joy Dexon Club’s six tracks have more of a narrative through-line than you’d expect from just a 12”. This is fast-blasting stuff, densely constructed acidic techno that grabs you and doesn’t let go. On Repitch.

rRoxymore
Thoughts Of An Introvert Pt. 2

rRoxymore’s third 12” for Don’t Be Afraid (Karen Gwyer, Semtek) is another installment in her Thoughts Of An Introvert series. Part 2 displays a bit more zip than the first release, bringing new sounds and aesthetics into the producer's already rather leftfield techno takes. ‘Run … Feet’, for instance, is a zany double-time jam that has a little DJ Paypal in it.
  • Genre(s):
  • Techno / Dub Techno / Experimental House

The Sun God
The Anticipatory Organization

Described in the press release as 'three rousing tracks to stir the attention' (whatever that means), this record is probably one you're going to want to listen to should you need to have your attention stirred (apparently). It's worth noting that amongst the attention related jokes that these three tracks are actually pretty cool...like the album art. The Sun God is, of course, Chicago's finest - explorer of rhythmic cubism Jamal Moss aka Hieroglyphic Being.

Mount Kimbie
Love What Survives - Remixes Part 1

Mount Kimbie’s fine LP Love What Survives has spawned two remix EPs, both of which drop in May. The first of these features three versions of King Krule collaboration ‘Blue Train Lines’, all of which come from the workhouse of Nina Kraviz. The big-shot DJ turns the rumbling post-punk of the original into a needling minimal techno workout for the ‘Main Mix’, then offers up two club-friendly re-rubs.

Stasis
Fromtheoldtothenew

Peacefrog Records (Moodymann, Suburban Knights) reissue their 1996 LP by Stasis. Fromtheoldtothenew is classic Peacefrog fare, synthesising multiple strains of electronica into a groovy, faintly psychedelic end-product. The likes of ‘Skins’ and ‘Utopia Planetia’ are heady house jams in the vein of Future Sound Of London and B12. Elsewhere entries like ‘Moody Ol’ Teacher’ have see Stasis on a jazztronica/breaks flex that's certainly had an influence on the sound of Gilles Peterson's Brownswood Records.

Deadbeat
Wax Poetic For This Our Last Resolve

The tenth LP from Canadian electronic composer Deadbeat sees Scott Monteith searching for resolve and companionship in troubling times. Monteith reached out to friends like Gudrun Gut and Mike Shannon, asking them to send him messages of hope. He then interpreted them aurally, making the words he received the centrepiece of each track on this album of experimental techno. The resulting LP is a wise, heartwarming statement.

Lurka x Batu
Fringe White EP

Two from the Timedance stable repress their first collaborative EP, one that dropped way back in the mists of 2016. With its thick chunks of sub bass, skittish lead lines and Eski-meets-Berghain drum programming, Fringe White is one of the very best records to have emerged from the excellent West Country techno scene.

Rrose
The Ends of Weather

Immaculate and spacious sound design from Seth Horvitz’s Rrose project, slow ‘n’ steady on the A side before launching into a techno stroll on the flip. Despite a consistent range of timbres, Rrose manages to raise three very different offspring here; crisp, sci-fi back alleys (‘The Smallest Footprints’), simulated outdoor soundscapes (appropriately titled ‘The Ends of Weather’) and rainforest techno, damp as dewy foliage.
  • Genre(s):
  • Techno / Dub Techno / Experimental House

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. 
  • Genre(s):

The Room Below
Healing Scaphoids

The Room Below titled this lovely little EP after an unfortunate pair of London cycling injuries. Healing Scaphoids was thus created during a period of recovery, which lends a thoughtful, slightly wonky flavour to these tracks that would make them an interesting addition to any club set. 12” on Don’t Be Afraid.

Petar Dundov & Marc Romboy
Caper Tran EP

Caper Tran is the first collaborative release between Petar Dundov (Music Man, Cocoon) and Watergate favourite (Innervisions, Systematic). The record features a track per side, and both ‘Gardens Of Cyrus’ and the almost-eponymous ‘Caper Tram’ are the sort of melodious deep house jams that have kept Dixon in business all these years.

Karen Gwyer
Rembo Remixes

After her debut album blew the competition out of the water, Karen Gwyer gets the remix treatment from an assortment of sonic travellers with the same spit and sawdust approach to machine manipulation. Ron Morelli sounds especially ferocious on his version of “He’s Been Teaching Me How To Drive”, while E. Myers pings Chicago jack into a frenetic retro future while duffing up "It's Not Worth The Bother".
  • Genre(s):
  • Techno / Dub Techno / Experimental House

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.

The Black Dog
Post-Truth

Post-Truth is the counterpart album to The Black Dog’s forlorn new Black Daisy Wheel. Unlike its ambient companion, this one is all percussive teeth, at lingering dancefloor tempos. On the more minimal cuts such as ‘FWB’ and ‘Anticipation Occupation’, the tone is especially oppressive, with shuddering rhythms driving clouds of unease. Elsewhere things tend to be slower and more melodic - ‘The Patti Smith Disaster’ ‘The Truth is In the Post’.

Jay Daniel
School Dance EP

Remember your first School Dance? If it was anything like mine, it was a crazy balance between adolescent self-loathing and a hazy alcoholic swagger. That’s exactly what Jay Daniel captures in his new EP, with disorienting decorations circling distantly around sturdy beats that do not care for subtlety.
  • Genre(s):
  • Techno / Dub Techno / Experimental House

SCB
Caibu

This one’s been coming. After two 2017 EPs (and next month’s Engineered Morality), Paul Rose aka Scuba aka SCB gives us the first LP from his vowel-phobic project. Anyone coming here and expecting a nice fix of jacking house will be left disappointed - SCB’s stuff is less welcoming, full of foreboding synths and hard, no-bs techno drums. Throw in a concept where Rose uses the LP “to explore the fictional narrative in which a hypothetical timeline is corrupted by a climate-related disaster”, and it all adds up to Caibu being a rather bracing experience.

Karen Gwyer / Raven Cru / Dukwa / Lily
DBA024.5

This 4-track multi-artist 12” on Don’t Be Afraid is a great selection, with label favourite Lily on one end and a first ever appearance on record from Raven Kru on the other. However, the pick of the crop might just have to be Karen Gwyer, whose enveloping techno sound-universe swirls pleasingly around the listener / dancer.

Daniel Avery
Song For Alpha

It’s taken five years but Daniel Avery’s follow-up to the well-received Drone Logic is finally here. Song For Alpha mixes techno and rave-inspired tunes with gentle ambient soundscapes effortlessly. It recalls the avant-garde ambient of William Basinski, Warp’s early ‘90s Artificial Intelligence compilations and some Brian Eno. Double LP and CD on Phantasy Sound.

In Aeternam Vale
2,3,7,8

Khemia Records are celebrating their second anniversary with this limited-edition clear vinyl release from legendary French electro pioneer In Aeternam Vale. Cinematic in scope, this record nods to everything from Stanley Kubrik, artificial intelligence and chemical disasters. As you do. Bleak, dystopian, majestic.

Oliver Deutschmann
Lost In A Loop EP

Luke Slater’s Mote-Evolver (Planetary Assault Systems, Marcel Fengler) drops a new EP from Oliver Deutschmann. Deutschmann - who co-runs Vidab and has previously released on Hotflush - brings to bear the club sound of his native Berlin perfectly on the four tracks of Lost In A Loop. Whether he’s making rumbling minimal techno (‘Lost’, ‘Survive’), edgy synth soundscapes ala Drexciya (‘Apsurt’) or squelchy acid (‘Seduced’), Deutschmann crafts his tracks impeccably.

Villa Abo
Magnetic Moves

Villa Åbo is now vinyl-able: the 2014 debut LP of this seldom-active pet project of Jan Svensson’s has found its way into waxy waters. Svensson has been active for decades under various names and as manager of the label Börft. The Villa Åbo project is all about exquisitely-produced minimal techno. The productions usually contain just enough elements and acidity to populate compelling, ambiguous atmospheres. At other times (e.g. ‘Bianco Festival’)  things get a bit cheekier.

Electric Indigo
5 1 1 5 9 3

female:pressure founder and former Hard Wax employee Electric Indigo has been around for almost three decades now, so it’s quite a surprise that 5 1 1 5 9 3 is her debut LP. She uses all of the tricks she’s picked up over the years to create an album that balances serious electroacoustic compositional chops with the visceral immediacy of IDM and central European techno. If tracks like ‘Ntandathu’ are the sound of the club in full-swing, ‘The Landing’ is what happens after everyone’s gone home. Release on Monolake’s Imbalance Computer Music.

Jayson Wynters
Industrial Espionage

Four track techno EP from Birmingham's Jayson Wynters. Wynter's techno darts and weaves, it knows when to sprint and when to take a break. Industrial Sabotage is an apt name then, it breaks up the repetition and monotony in order to aim for something higher. Released on the lovely Don't Be Afraid.

Other Lands
Pattern Transform

Oh here we go, here's a colourful thing, one foot in sumptuous tropical island-house, another in quirky downbeat electronica. Richly composed and beautifully groovy, this release is hard to place but none of that really matters to be honest, the vibes are light and shimmering and categorisation can melt away.

Solitary Dancer
In The Name Of The Mother

Optimo call time on their successful Optimo Trax offshoot at the thirty-third release. The EP in question, courtesy of Montreal’s Solitary Dancer, is also one of the more unusual pressings in the series. The three tracks on In The Name Of The Mother are all reverb-fugged edge-of-the-dancefloor numbers that by turns recall The Orb (‘Heroine Dub’), Inga Copeland (‘La Donna’) and Suicideyear (‘Lady Pimp’).

Hieroglyphic Being
The Red Notes

Prolific producer and DJ Jamal Moss puts out another record under his primary Hieroglyphic Being alias.

He follows it up with a record orbiting the same world: The Red Notes plugs in to the legend and legacy of Blue Note, in particular its hardest shredders Thelonius Monk and John Coltrane, marrying their innovations with Chicago house.

Matrixxman
Sector III: Polyphony

The framework and structure of techno gets another analysis as Matrixxman unleashes his third in a series of dance floor sound studies, this one exploring polyphony.

Yotam Avni
Perlude to Dybbuk

Beautiful productions from Tel-Aviv’s Yotam Avni, teasing refreshing new branches out of Stroboscopic Artefacts’ enormous Berlin root. The beats are heavy and chugging and the attention to detail would impress a surgeon, but Avni’s touch with flickering fragments of brass jazz or, prominently on the last track, an unspecified Middle-Eastern folk sample, make this twelve especially distinctive and rewarding.

Momentum (10 Years Of Token)

10 year celebratory compilation from Belgian techno label Token. Every track is a collaboration between two members of Token's two family, featuring big hitters like Rødhåd, Sigha, and Ø [Phase]. Vinyl comes in an embossed sleeve. Not sure what it's go to do with Jeremy Corbyn though.

Alessandro Adriani
Enter The Fire

Mannequin Records founder Alessandro Adriani teams up with Stroboscopic Artefacts (Perc, Lucy and Klock) for this four-track EP. Enter The Fire is full of the kind of tense, dense dancefloor fugs that Adriani and Mannequin have become known for these past couple of years. The industrialised acid of ‘Rituals (707 EBM Version)’ is particularly relentless. On the B-side we see Adriani trying dub-techno - the ‘Original 808 Version’ of ‘Rituals’ is a treat.

Kassem Mosse
Chilazon Gaiden

Chilazon Gaiden is the new EP from German producer Kassem Mosse, real name Gunnar Wendel. The double 12”, on Ominira, is informally split into two parts. According to Wendel, the first half is beats, then the tunes come in on the second half. Chilazon Gaiden gives you a decent amount of bang for your buck.

More techno please John. Thanks. Mr. Tejada returns with yet more for Kompakt with Dead Start Program, which demonstrates his trance-inducing and haze-imbibed style in its totality.

Behold, the power of Man! Specifically, the power of tech producer and man Geoff Kirkwood to create some music.

Collin Gorman Weiland
Issue No. Twenty-One

After releases on Downwards and Neverender, Collin Gorman Weiland releases this limited pressing EP on Jealous God. Issue No. Twenty-One is a caustic, noisy, and rhythmic beast. Nasty analogue sequences scrape into life with an hypnotic and almost nauseating effect, shifting from twisted 80’s techno soundtrack to noise piece a slow distorted voice murmurs in the background. Disconcerting? Yes.
