Planetary Assault Systems
Arc Angel

Big techno man Luke Slater provides Ostgut Ton and yourselves with some more melodically-leaning techno machinations beamed in from the outer heliosphere. We say melody, but you've got deep drones, alien synth lines and haywire arps all tuned to twisted perfection. They've even thrown in a download of the continuous album mix too. The techno never stops.

  • Techno / Dub Techno / Experimental House

Hieroglyphic Being
The Disco's Of Imhotep

Jamal Moss has never been shy with releasing music (how many aliases does he have again?), but word is that new Hieroglyphic Being full-length The Disco’s Of Imhotep is a proper statement, worth serious attention. It certainly has that hypnotic blown-out Being vibe, pitched towards dancefloors somewhere in between a Chicago basement and the outer cosmos. Out on Ninja Tune spin-off label Technicolour.

Shamos
Games and Dreams

Experimental house artist, Shamos, is back with his second release that brings much of the same in terms of music experimentation but this time with a much more rounded and intimate feeling that starts to look outside the house genre, and begins to touch on techno and more solid beats. Games and Dreams is a four track record that is available on 12”.

Peder Mannerfelt
EQUALITY NOW

Fresh from a release on Joy Orbison/Will Bankhead’s Hinge Finger, Peder Mannerfelt hops over to Jackmaster’s Numbers for three curious slabs of sort-of-techno. The title track recalls the best bits of late-90s Eurodance as well as Peaches at her most brazen. Very cool record with a very cool screen-printed sleeve.

Via App
Sixth Stitch

Uneasy, distorted and mangled experimental electronics from Via App. Occasionally dipping into a hard hitting techno form, but never for long enough for anything to settle. Heavily destroyed samples of modular noises, overdriven realworld sounds and god knows what, it plays out like a ghost in a machine, chaotic and constantly toying with you.

Mickey Pearce
Top 5 Goat Memes

Yeah its 2016, people are allowed to drop records named Top 5 Goat Memes these days, deal with it. Mickey Pearce has done that, though he’s more serious about his productions than you might assume. The title track bumps and pops real nicely, with enough twists and turns to keep you on your toes. The Top 5 Goat Memes 12” is out on Ten Thousand Yen.

Alex Coulton
Gamma Ray Burst

If you like bass tones and kick patterns that mess with your heart rate, and the polyrhythmic percussion of artists such as Joe, Manchester based Alex Coulton should be well known to you already. With releases on Idle Hands, Black Acre, Bloc and this being his fourth, but debut full length, on low-end lords Tempa, Coulton masters night-time bassweight.

Graze
XUP

Graze is a pair of producers, Adam Marshall and Christian Anderson, each of whom grew up in Canada but now live in Berlin. Their immersion in the city of techno has honed their skills, though XUP isn’t only four-to-the-floor blasters: for example, ‘Vast’ is a powerful and remarkably slow cut. Released as part of the Dekmantel label’s UFO series.

Romare
Love Songs: Part Two

London-based DJ and producer Romare returns with his 10-track album, Love Songs: Part Two. Romare's production style incorporates idiosyncratic usage of samples, steady beats, and a constantly evolving world of sound which never fails to sustain intrigue. Released as white vinyl double LP, black vinyl double LP, and CD on the Ninja Tunes label.

Fluxion
Vibrant Forms III

If Basic Channel was too maximal for you it’s sibling label Chain Reaction had you covered. It’s last record was Fluxion’s Vibrant Forms II and was heralded as one of the greatest in the genre. Returning with III to Subwax Bcn it’s filled with Atmospheric hiss and fuzz, heart palpitating kick drums and bass, all backing warm dubby reverbed chord stabs.

Moon Temple
Part I

Moon Temple is the solo business of Gabriel Andruzzi, who coyly hints at his previous musical activity in his press release (I’ll spill the beans: he was in The Rapture). Part 1 of his double vinyl solo debut (released separately) is a proper electronic exploration of both acidic dancefloors and abstracted arty sound work. 45rpm 12” on WT Records, housed within an eye-blasting mirror board sleeve.

Moon Temple
Part II

Moon Temple is the solo business of Gabriel Andruzzi, who coyly hints at his previous musical activity in his press release (I’ll spill the beans: he was in The Rapture). Part II of his double vinyl solo debut (the two halves are released separately) is tasty stuff to suit a variety of electronic moods. 12” on WT Records, housed within an eye-blasting mirror board sleeve.

WOLF DEM
Hydrophobia

The anarchic nature of Philly duo WOLF DEM is no more apparent than on Hydrophobia. Pushing the boundaries of techno (and in fact anything else out there at the moment) the four-track collection is characterised by schizophrenic computer software - malfunctioning and convulsing in every direction.

Wolfgang Voigt
Apodiktische Gewissheit

New work from the Gas-man Wolfgang Voigt, extracted from an AV art installation he has produced with Gerhard Mantz in Cologne. Apodiktische Gewissheit, presented here in two versions, is a pulsing, undulating digital landscape that apparently mirrors the flow of Mantz’s images, though you’ll have no problem enjoying Voigt’s hypnotic work at home. 12” on Profan.

Jacques Greene
Afterglow / You Can't Deny

Canadian producer Jacques Greene has been away for a couple of years, but has returned to his home label LuckyMe with a new single and refreshes his already fresh output into the electronic dance world. A visceral blend of techno, bass-come-garage, and neo soul. Both tracks are extended versions for vinyl only.

Dark Strands
The Last Ride EP

Leeds’ own Antony Beardsley is Dark Strands, and after releasing his first EP way back in 2013, he has been filling our ears with cleverly crafted slow paced dance music ever since. The Last Ride is no different, and combines slow rhythms with catchy and repetitive electronic harmonies. Available on Vinyl 12”.
  • Genre(s):
  • Techno / Dub Techno / Experimental House

Surgeon
Bland Ambition

Developing his hardware improvisation over the last two decades Surgeon has decided to grace us with some of the fruits of his many labours. Taking some of those themes or ideas that he has perfected and utilised in live settings and laying them out into these four tracks. Have you just got into modular stuff… got some catching up to do.
  • Genre(s):
  • Techno / Dub Techno / Experimental House

Telephones
Vibe Telemetry

The creative mind behind Telephones is keen that Vibe Telemetry be seen as a fully ‘proper’ album, as opposed to the ‘bunch of floor-fillers’ approach some electronic artists take. So there is a proper development here, with some tracks avoiding beats for sheer atmosphere. Also, big respect is due for the fact that the 2x12” edition has sides ‘V I B E’ rather than ‘A B C D’. Little details like that show you how serious Telephones is about the vibes.

Shifted
Appropriation Stories

Guy Alexander Brewer’s project Shifted is standing at an interesting point right now. This is an outlet for properly dark and noisy sounds, but Brewer is also looking back to his previous drum & bass work as Commix. The pleasurable results, presented on Appropriation Stories, are heavyweight techno with dashes of noise and deconstructed breakbeats: intense stuff, released on Dominic Fernow’s Hospital Productions.

Kero & Gotshell
Perindsor EP

Kero and Gotshell pair up for Blueprint’s 20th anniversary, providing a four track EP of dark techy electronica rooted firmly in the techno sphere. With the cold, knife-like precision of Autechre or Emptyset and with a kick so deep it sounds as if it is coming from noisy housemates downstairs, headphones or (and) subwoofers required.
  • Genre(s):

A Made Up Sound
A Made Up Sound (2009-2016)

A Made Up Sound is a label as well as moniker used by Dave Huismans who is best known as 2562. This double CD pack collects all of his releases under this project, providing 10 12” releases worth of material. 2562 is known for his left of centre approach to techno, but this project left him free to explore further.

Scuba
Fabric 90: Scuba

It feels like Scuba must be going for some kind of record for his installment of the legendary Fabric mix CD series: he flies through 42 tracks over the course of the CD’s running time. That requires wild cutting-together skills as well as a knack for selections: producers here include Pearson Sound, Ben Klock, Patrick Cowley, Regis… and many many more.

Marcel Dettmann
DJ-Kicks

Berghain resident Marcel Dettmann contributes to the taste making mix series DJ Kicks. Showing his tamer, at home listening side delving into deep and intricate percussive pieces as well as wide textural soundscapes. Holds 6 unreleased edits and remixes including Rolando’s remix of Marcel’s ‘Let’s Do It’ and comes with download code.

Pangaea
In Drum Play

Pangaea is the recording name for Hessle Audio co-founder Kevin McAuley. In Drum Play features skeletal techno which still bears the intensity of rave that has set maverick experimentalist McAuley apart over the last decade. The album mixes studio craft with the in-your-face sound of his club work to create a powerful and visceral yet cerebral work.

Killawatt
Fazed EP

Dark and dystopian techno with a clean industrial edge. Fazed is a straight hitter from a bladerunner factory, Livewire is a minimal machine stuck in a clattering loop and Okinawa is a sense shocking percussion and metal scraping flurry. With two remixes of Livewire, Sergie Rezza turning it into a hard hitting club track and Ossia turning into a halftime stepper shuffle.

Varg
Star Alliance

Varg’s Star Alliance, previously a vanishingly-limited 6-tape box-set, now makes it onto vinyl. The Varg sound is electronic but varied, with a slightly dark mood the main point of consistency. Oh and it isn’t the racist black metal Varg by the way, I checked. Double LP (with most of the original tracks and a few new ones) on Posh Isolation.

rkss
Cutoff

London’s Alien Jams imprint follows up their Beatrice Dillon/Karen Gwyer split with a 12” EP from rkss. Strange and peripheral electronics are the order of the day! “Wave” washes out fidgety, hyper-textural knocks with swathes of synths and a kick that steadily hammers you into neighbour-nuisance territory. “LOAD” on the other hand is an awkward bassy stroll through winding, stretching digital groans.

Adam Feingold
Ascension

Canadian producer Adam Feingold aka Ex-Terrestrial (1080p, Temple, Pacific Rhythm) returns to Steven Julien's label for a second twelve, featuring two cuts of the rugged style house/techno that Funkineven seems to hoover up for his imprint. 'Ascension' is raw and emotive with a smattering of acid, while the blue 'Inner Zone' is melancholy and introspective.

Daniel Avery
DJ-Kicks

Daniel Avery’s ticket has come up, so it's time for him to submit his DJ Kicks mix. Avery is a strong believer in the narrative of a mix, so this Kicks edition is definitely designed to be listened to ‘properly’, all the way through. The tracklist includes Planetary Assault Systems, Reeko and some exclusive cuts from Avery himself.

Aphex Twin
Richard D James

In a career full of brilliant music, this could possibly be one Aphex Twin's high-water marks, widely popular at the time of release. It introduced his pulverising 'drill and bass' techniques, moving him away from his acid 'n' ambience beginnings. Contains several classics such as 'Cornish Acid', 'Girl/Boy Song' etc. 

Marcellus Pittman
Sneak Attack / Random Acts of Insanity

4 years ago, Marcellus Pittman wowed people with Pieces, his debut full-length album on Unirhythm. Now he sneaks out 2 of the strongest tracks from that collection for DJ-friendly 12” release. Sneak Attack and Random Acts of Insanity both rely on delicious acidic synth-tones, and would provide hectic happiness to any dancefloor.

Twins
Cold Gemini EP

Matt Weiner is pulling the strings on this new 12" from TWINS (a shorthand for That Which Is Not Said), following up on his last release, a split with Os Ovni. The record is a collection of in-your-face techno tunes that head straight for the darkest avenues, while keeping one eye on the dancefloor at the same time. Full of squeaky beats and steady basslines, the 'Cold Gemini' EP is a pretty straightforward collection of cuts from the Featureless Ghost dreamer.

Diagenetic Origin
The Galactic Clock

Punchy, tough atmosphere-drenched techno with shades of, say, Ancient Methods but a little less sonically brutal. Yet this EP is gonna be devastating on the dancefloor, loaded as it is with floor-scorching industrial vigour and a clenched fistful of mechanical funk.  A1. CyclesA2. Question B1. GalaxyB2. Heart
  • Genre(s):

J Velez
Ausland

Lost in the cosmos with J Velez. Ausland are two hot efforts from the state side technophile. These jams are stone cold killers assassinations, with the deep water diving of "Ausland" - effortlessly loosening you up for the floor. Perhaps inspired by Lynch, "Lost Highway" is the early morning failed rescue attempt, with captain and crew drowning in a wash of synths, kicks, hand claps and sirens. Out on 12" vinyl from Rush Hour.

Specter
The Gooch

“Daddy, are ghosts real?” “No sweetie, of course not. But THE SPECTER is. Are you ready to go all acid up in here?” Just a regular conversation between father and daughter. The Gooch is one piece of 12” goodness that will tear family ties apart and sow them up nicely and in strange and distorted manners.

Blackmass Plastics
Under The Radar

Blackmass Plastics drops 8 new tracks on the Ugly Funk label, keenly playing up to label type with rough dancefloor killers that are presented without smooth edges. Under The Radar, which sprawls over 2 12”s, is a mutant thing that collects up tracks that have made a big impact in promo and radio contexts: now own them on wax!

Cristian Vogel
The Assistenz

Another major statement of electronic music by Christian Vogel. The Assistenz was recorded in Copenhagen with rich array of synthesisers and creative programming techniques. This record could stand just as well in the middle of the dancefloor as in an academic electronic music lab. The Assistenz is released by Shitkatapult.

Mickey Pearce
Michael

Mickey Pearce (aka Shortstuff's Richard Attley)'s debut album is a mixed affair. Whilst a lot of the tracks here inhabit the familiar post dubstep landscape we would expect them to, there are others which veer downbeat, some optimistically and upliftingly so, and others with a dark kind of edge. Expect the unexpected.

Gerd Janson
Fabric 89: Gerd Janson

Gerd Janson steps up to the honoured Fabric decks with the 89th instalment in their crucial mix series. He’s got plenty of killers in his DJ box, with almost every track here being a special remix version: Prins Thomas does Caribou, or Luke Abbott on Todd Terje. Needless to say, all masterfully mixed together into a seamless party whole.
  • Genre(s):
  • Techno / Dub Techno / Experimental House

Faster Action
Faster Action

Usually a pairing with Robert Bergmann, Interstellar Funk goes it alone under the Faster Action title for these cheeky tools many DJs would be thankful for. Two tracks offering strong beds of rhythm, the first a 909 explosion and the second a heavier metallic affair. Great backbone stuff for any club set.

Appleblim
Minus Degree

Appleblim gets back to Tempa with a new 12”. Minus Degree starts off with a left-turn: the title track has no beats! Serious! Synths and sub bass create an uneasy soundscape, with no head-nodding of dancing to relieve you. But don’t worry, the EP’s other 2 track will give you a good time again. Edition of 300.
  • Genre(s):
  • Techno / Dub Techno / Experimental House

Lakker
Tundra

Dark, brooding atmospheres reminiscent of your time as a night-shift factory worker, always throbbing onward: expect those sounds from Lakker’s debut full length. Tundra will give you the chills with its threatening basses and obtuse beats that’ll fill your room, ears and head as soon as the needle touches the vinyl.

Yaws
DOUBT

Debut release from producer Yaws: in fact DOUBT is also the debut release for the label, Purely Physical. These 4 tracks seem somewhat informed by the slightly-too-slow sounds of Andy Stott, except that Yaws pulls back slightly on the delay / decay front. Meaty, textural club sounds all the same. Edition of 300 12”s.
  • Genre(s):

Audion
Gut Man Cometh / Destroyer

Audion is the long-running I-Love-Techno project from Matthew Dear, and recent album Alpha was first full album released under the name in 10 whole years! To celebrate, 2 of those mighty dancefloor cuts have been extracted and remixed, one by FOLD and one by Matthew Herbert, the other electronic-music-boffin-named-Matthew. 12” on !K7.

Cute Heels
Third Skin EP

Barcelona’s Cute Heels offers up a synthesis of classic dance genres, with aspects of EBM, Detroit techno and Chicago house all present on the Third Skin EP. Old-school floor-filling stuff. On top of the original cuts, we also get a pair of remixes: one from The Hacker and one from Steffi. Vinyl on Dark Entries, packaged along with one of their trademark postcards.

Floorplan (Robert Hood)
Victorious

Floorplan is a fantastic name for a house music project, immediately focussing the mind on the only place that matters: the dance floor. It is, of course, the name under which the legendary Robert Hood makes his houseiest tracks, and Victorious finds him co-producing with his own daughter(!). Awesome. This full-length is available as a CD or as a DJ-friendly triple LP.

Vapauteen
This Coercion Pt. II

Hard-jacking new tracks from Shawn O’Sullivan’s Vapauteen guise, working the project’s signature style of relentless beat-pummel and acidic synth lines. This Coercion Pt. II neatly complements the recent Pt. I: taken as a pair, they add up to some of the year’s most formidable techno, leaving no room for negotiation. Out on the ever-reliable L.I.E.S. imprint.

Various
Kern Vol.3 mixed by Objekt

Kern is the in-house mix series of Tresor, the famed Berlin techno haven. Objekt provides Volume 3, a slick-mixed collection of his favourite DJ tools: think Shanti Celeste, Monojunk, Clatterbox. The whole mix is available on CD, or you can get either ‘The Exclusives’ or ‘The Rarities’ from the selection as standalone 12”s.

Suokas
The New Cycle

The New Cycle is meant to be ‘electronic music without the electronics’: the elements at its foundations are orchestral instruments (from both the Western and the Karelian traditions) and field recordings. The results, clicked into a techno-derived grid, are pretty damn lush and melodic: Suokas has pulled off a smart sonic trick. Edition of 500 LPs on Prah Recordings.

Tiga
Always

Taken from Tiga’s No Fantasy Required LP and working with Paranoid London, this club stomper is an old heart with a new head, harking from the golden age. Thick grooved-out acid bassline and shuffled drum machine will get you moving without realising. For Fans of Erol Alkan, Boys Noize. With Seth Troxler remix on the B-side.

Fabrizio Rat
La Machina EP

Inventive little EP here from Fabrizio Rat, a producer and pianist who set out to construct this EP using only a drum machine and a piano. The results are 4 Techno tracks made out of deliciously fiddly little looped sounds from the piano: strings scraped and prepared, the surface tapped and treated. La Machina is impressive as an invention and as a set of dancefloor tracks.
  • Genre(s):
  • Techno / Dub Techno / Experimental House

Lone
Levitate

Lone again, naturally. Matt Cutler's been doing this music thing for quite a while now -- 'Levitate', his sixth album under this moniker, gets an upgrade in tempo, revelling in ecstatic breakbeats and a love of jungle. It's a switch up from the arguably chiller music he's been making of late.

Circling Vultures
Circling Vultures

Whenever you see a release by L.I.E.S., you know it’s going to be a piece of hard-hitting techno. Circling Vultures deliver nothing less, and this self-titled 12” is sure to blow up your speakers if you turn it up as loud as you want to. Heavy 808 beats combine well with paranoid bass lines, and the occasional dark pad to lighten things up. Highly recommended for your next warehouse/late-night/underwater rave.

Cassy
Donna

Donna is released on Aus Music and is the debut from UK techno and house DJ and producer, Cassy. There are some solid Detroit techno sounds here, with pulsating electronics layered with flowing synths and ping-pong rhythm. Expect the Boiler Room lady to be soundtracking any Berghain style party this side of 5am.

Yen Towers
Bidders Must Justify Their Price

Copenhagen’s Posh Isolation label have a seemingly limitless of compellingly dark music, from the harsh noise of Puce Mary to the relentless techno pounding of Yen Towers (aka Simon Formann of Age Coin and Lower). Bidders Must Justify Their Price is good for dancing, but also sinister and heavy: this is techno with a brutalist aesthetic. 4 track 12”.

Molecule
60°43' Nord

60° 43’ Nord is a banging techno record, primed and ready for club deployment. But, more unusually, it is also a document of the underwater soundscape found underneath a fishing boat in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean. Yes, it can be both things! Nice explorative work here from Molecule, released by Because Music.

Senking
Dazed

Gloomy and dubby techno explorations from Jens Massel on Raster Norton. The tracks run so slow you'd imagine you have chosen the RPM yet this is the pace he works. Exploring the human psych through depth of sound, the pieces are enlivened by snatches of Michael Cramm's vocals which humanise the dislocated bloopery. 

Spacetravel
Dancing Therapy

Luca Cara heads up Spacetravel, going for the scope of that alias with NASA-approved house music (citation needed) that blends together electronics with acoustics and lets them loop around each-other with all of the universe's joyous futility. High energy and sure to please about five different electronic contingents, 'Dancing Therapy' has got you.

Audion
Alpha

Matthew Dear is a man of many aliases and many styles, from electro-pop to various experimentalisms. But as Audion, Dear is a man of the dancefloor, pushing high-powered techno that positively bursts with electro-claps and low-end thump. Alpha is the first Audion full-length in a decade. CD or double LP on !K7.

Africans With Mainframes
K.M.T.

Africans With Mainframes is the pairing of Jamal Moss (aka Hieroglyphic Being) and his Chicago buddy Noleian Reusse. After stacks of quality 12”s over the last decade, 2016 sees the release of their first full-length album, K.M.T., and what a blast it is. The highest grade of experimental acid house, no doubt about it. Out on Soul Jazz.
  • Genre(s):

Marquis Hawkes
Social Housing

Proper house for proper dancers, with a huge bounce to the kick drums and a rubbery boogie in the synth-lines. Marquis Hawkes works wonders on his debut full-length album, pulling together the different strands of his beloved genre into a triumphant whole, including disco-leaning tracks and vocal numbers (feat, Jocelyn Brown). Social Housing is out on Houndstooth.

Regis
Manbait

‘Manbait’ is the new double LP release from Regis aka Karl O’Connor (Downwards records, Sandwell District collective, British Murder Boys). The record features several new versions of three original tracks, remixes of Raime, Vatican Shadow, Ike Yard and Dalhous, an alternate mix of Tropic of Cancer’s ‘Plant Lilies At My Head’ and a new take on a song from Regis’s teen, synth punk band Family Sex.
  • Genre(s):

Marcelus
Vibrations

French producer Marcelus drops his debut full-length album on Berlin’s legendary Tresor imprint. Vibrations pushes through an array of techno styles, with strange textures and counter-rhythms allowed to join the soundspace: though never straying from that crucial 4/4 for long. This is proper techno stuff on a proper techno label, so the album comes spread over 3 LPs for maximum DJ usability.
  • Genre(s):
  • Techno / Dub Techno / Experimental House

Lucy
Self Mythology

Lucy runs the Stroboscopic Artefacts label, on which his new full-length is seeing release. Self Mythology has all the techno / ambient credentials you’d expect of a release on this Berlin label, but flutes and improvised vocals (from collaborator Jon Jacobs) push some of these tracks into interesting experimental spaces. CD and double LP editions.

Max D
Boost

More off-kilter house from the artist formerly known as Maxmillion Dunbar, Max D. This third album on vinyl LP from Future Times is part weird digital sheen and part analogue machine-music. But it’s all powered by Max’s sharp melodies. I’m not sure when house and techno become so off-kilter that we can’t really call it that anymore, but on Boost we’re certainly close.

Juan Atkins & Moritz von Oswald present Borderland
Transport

The Borderland project combines key producers from the two international hubs of techno, Detroit and Berlin. The prospect of the two styles merging is a prospect to make beat-heads quiver, and this collaboration between Moritz von Oswald and Juan Atkins will not disappoint. Transport is a full-length, 7-track record of their inventive studio explorations, out on Tresor.

German techno producer Pantha Du Prince is known for his conceptual mimal works on Dial and Rough Trade. He return to Rough trade with his first album since 2010, working on the concept of collaboration and humanising his music. The Triad has many collaborative efforts on it with Queens, Joachim Schultz and Kassian von Troyer.

Virginia
Fierce For The Night

Virginia drops a full-length album on Berlin’s techno overlord label, Ostgut Ton. Unusually for these keepers of the Berghain, Fierce For The Night is made up of actual, vocally-driven songs, albeit songs grounded firmly in the sound of techno. Working with co-producers Martyn, Steffi and Dexter, Virginia has achieved something special here.

Weval
Weval

Somewhere between Cloud Boat, Moderat, and Darkside you find Weval. Harm Coolen and Merijn Scholte Albers lock themselves away in an attic room in the Netherlands and create this warming, soul filled electronica with pop sensibilities and catchiness. Switching between loving ballads you’ll sing along to shuffling analog grooves.

Brassfoot
Realms

Cheap and wonderfully nasty sounding DIY techno from Brassfoot. Realms, on vinyl 12”, is refreshingly agro and unpolished, mashing together house drums, lo-fi samples and abrasive textures. This free-form and abstract electronica, on the Apron label, reminds us of Actress at his most unhinged and fantastic.

Jorge Velez
Animals Disk

Jorge Velez delivers a curious set of “animal-themed electronic exploration”, utilising only, a Microbrute synth and samples from a Fairlight CMI. Animals Disk is overtly digital, almost plastic in tone, but Velez does a good job of rendering these peculiar compositions tuneful and compelling as well as texturally wild. 12” on L.I.E.S.

Neil Landstrumm
Clawing At Sand EP

Techno icon Neil Landstrumm continues an impeccable run of releases with the rough and sleazy techno of the Clawing at Sand EP. Landstrumm’s approach to 4x4 techno has always been a little weird and this vinyl 12” is very much in character, with plenty of harsh snares and surreal organ outbursts.

MGUN
Gentium

Detroit man Manuel Gonzales has been producing the material that appears on Gentium, which appears under his MGUN moniker, since 2007. Most of it is bounced live onto cassette: Gonzales believes in capturing the moment of creation as it occurs. Double LP of cutting techno / electro, on Don’t Be Afraid.

Azimute
Paradox

With releases on Crosstown Rebels and AZMred over the last two years Azimute bring their mix of deep, minimal and techy house and techno to Derrick May’s legendary Transmat label. Always deep and with solid groove, Azimute like to play with a slightly leftfield element over the top, keeping it fresh and unique as well as solid.

Moire
Lines+ Colours

This new material from Moiré has all his playful movement between different dance subcultures, but it’s also more refined and elegant; these are minimal and thoughtful house bangers. Lines + Colours also reveals a jazzy and experimental side that reminds us of his pal Actress. But they're still best played loud.

Max Wurden
Transit

Max Würden produces thickly textured ambient music with a dub sensibility that sometimes rears its head in the form of actual beats. Transit seems to be designed specifically with eyes-closed sonic journeying in mind: just follow the thrust of the submerged-in-drone field recordings. CD release on Bine Music.

Noumeno
Exosomatic Artifacts

Noumeno throws a disorientating array of digital sound at the listener, as interested in exploring texture and socio-philosophical themes as in making you dance via his broken beats. New EP Exosomatic Artefacts also includes a ‘Wall of Crystal’ reworking from Fis and another remix by the excellent Shapednoise. 12” released by the Portals Editions label.

Ricardo Donoso
Sarava Exu Remixes

Following the acclaimed album Savara Evu, Denovali have pressed a collection of remixes to 12” vinyl.  A variety of diverse styles were invited to explore Ricardo Donoso’s austere drones. Orphx ties those dry synthesizers into a dub techno framework, Thomas Köner explores the icy ambient he’s been developing for over a decade and the other inclusions push the sounds further into abstraction. This is a limited heavyweight pressing that includes download code and extra thick sleeve.

NY*AK
Dollar EP

4 new tracks from Newcastle producer NY*AK. The Dollar EP was made on a delicious array of vintage analogue synths and drum machines, and the sonic feel throughout is warm, slippery and plenty groovy. Featuring guest-work from Mark Hand, Misumami and Ian Blevins. 12” vinyl on the Technicolour label.

Casio Royale
In Basements Vol. 2

Casio Royale takes another trip down to Dixon Avenue Basement, where it sounds like a killer party is going down. Gorgeously squelchy acid synths and thick, thick bass ensure that a good time is had by all (apart from maybe Tories: take a look at the B2 track title…). In Basements Vol. 2 is out on Dixon Avenue Basement Jams.

Alex Coulton / Chevel / Simo Cell
WSDM004

Split vinyl 12” from Alex Coulton, Chevel and Simo Cell. Wisdom Teeth have brought these artists together on WSDM004 to showcase their outsider variations on house and squealing acid techno. There’s certainly a competitive element here, with each artist trying to produce the bizarrest dancefloor experiment, without losing sight of that all-important groove.

Binny
Shlaguance EP

Binny is back with more dark and sordid house/techno hybrids on the Shlaguance EP. This vinyl 12” has everything for the electronic music outsider; acid basslines, harsh hi-hats and strange synths, all twisted into terrifying new shapes. This release on CLFT is limited to 500 copies and hits that sweet spot of mechanical weirdness and proper dancefloor stomp.

Nurve
Cabana EP

4 new ones from Nurve, who produces classic 90’s-esque techno from behind a shadowy curtain of anonymity. The Cabana EP goes pretty deep, with vocal samples looming up from the groovy murk of bass and drums. Also features a collaboration with Caski. 12” on Tectonic, more than matching his well-regarded last release for the label.

IVVVO
When I Feel You Wet

London producer IVVVO is so confident of the power of his heavy new track When I Feel You Wet that they have allowed it to stand alone: the B-side is a blank void. His boldness might be justified though, as the track is a pretty hammering slice of winning dark techno. Limited edition single-sided 12” on the ORO label.

Thug Entrancer
Arcology

With his previous release on Software Thug Entrancer introduced us to his abstract blend of Techno and footwork and with Arcology he’s extrapolated it to the Nth degree. There are joyous Squarepusher esque uplifting chord sequences, 303 squelches, and FM burbs atop of a bed of footwork shuffles. There’s a lot of rave culture joy in this.

Moderat
III

Moderat are an electronic three-piece consisting of Gernot Bronsert, Sebastian Szary and Sascha Ring. III is the completion of a trilogy that has seen the once self-proclaimed “Lap-top Boy Band” grow to be a single like-minded entity. their debut, I, was the coming together of very separate ideas whilst the acclaimed II saw them becoming closer. The inspiration behind Moderat is to create the feeling that you’d get from watching a movie with a mind-blowing soundtrack. III is available as a 6 LP box set, double LP, Standard single LP, Double CD or single CD.

Paid Reach
I Ping

The second 7” vinyl from Paid Release, a new pseudonym for house upstart Gunnar Wendel aka Kassem Mosse. These releases push Mosse’s unique sound into even weirder, off-grid zones. Ping sounds both nasty and funky and Experience Change has an abstract, weightless quality that you can’t shake off. They’re definitely bangers, but we wouldn’t recommend trying to dance to them.

Acre
Better Strangers

With previous EPs released on Tectonic, Cold Recordings and PAN’s sub-label Codes, Better Strangers is Acre’s album debut. From previous works showcasing rave flashbacks and heavily distorted jungle breaks akin to Andy Stott productions. From his own words Acre has injected more emotion into this release than previous outings, meaning this could be a pleasantly tough record to digest. Available on double LP or CD.

Fyoelk
Klaus

Fyoelk is a producer who likes to keep things under wraps, having not put anything out since a 7” on Erode Releases almost five years ago. Shame, as this self-titled 12” shows that they have the knack of weaving synth-lines and bass-lines into a fine, groovy mesh, with the beat cushioned in the middle. Limited edition.

Hunter/Game
Adaption

Hunger/Game have been sprinkling exciting 12” releases around for a while now, on the likes of Last Night On Earth and Innervisions. Now however, they are fully going for it with their debut full-length album, on the legendary Kompakt label. Adaption is a little less minimal than most of the stuff we’d associate with Kompakt, but with just as much careful craft in its full-bodied sound.
  • Genre(s):
  • Techno / Dub Techno / Experimental House

Alvin Aronson
Aevus

A deep, subby, bubbly debut vinyl release from Alvin Aronson. The heavily titled Aevus contrasts warm analogue tones and ice-cold sounds for an atmospheric techno experience. Released on the label set up by DJ Richard, you know it’s worth more than a moment of your time. Out on 12" EP from White Material.
  • Genre(s):
  • Techno / Dub Techno / Experimental House
