Various
15 Years With Echocord

These guys have been pumping their spacey, classy, echoing electronica out of Copenhagen for a decade and a half now. With this landmark comes ‘15 Years With Echocord’, a behemoth of a comp. Fluxion, Arovane, and co cycle their hypnotic beats and resonating frequencies through the dub chamber. Time flies. Double vinyl LP or CD.

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.

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.

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.

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

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.

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.

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.

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):

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

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):
  • Techno / Dub Techno / Experimental House

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.

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.
  • Genre(s):
  • Techno / Dub Techno / Experimental House

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.

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):
  • Techno / Dub Techno / Experimental House

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):
  • Techno / Dub Techno / Experimental House

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

DJ Richard
Grind

Grind is the first full-length album release of White Material boss DJ Richard, and it comes with some anticipation. And it’s a big one, full of brooding atmospheres that tip inevitably over into club drama. Although at times, this could almost be a dark ambient record.. Nine tracks over two LPs (or one CD), on the Dial label.
  • Genre(s):
  • Techno / Dub Techno / Experimental House

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.

Pantha du Prince
The Triad

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.

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.
  • Genre(s):

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 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.

Surgeon
From Farthest Known Objects

A brand-new, full-length album from Anthony Child, aka Surgeon. This time, the conceit is that Child’s vintage equipment ended up spitting out such strange-sounding results that they could only conceivably emit from another galaxy: hence From Farthest Known Objects. These tracks are indeed a fresh, wild-sounding trip, though they still keep hold of that essential Surgeon rhythm. On Dynamic Tension.
  • Genre(s):
  • Techno / Dub Techno / Experimental House

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.

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!

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.

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.

Function & Vatican Shadow
Games Have Rules

Here's a collaboration between electronic big hitters Function and Vatican Shadow who have combined forces,  simultaneously stripping back each producer’s main production elements - the dancefloor-focused techno structures of Function; the experimental cassette-roots of Vatican Shadow - to create an album of dynamic electronic ambient music, equal parts rhythmic and atmospheric. 

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.

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

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.
  • Genre(s):
  • Techno / Dub Techno / Experimental House

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.

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.

Vessels
Dilate Remixes

If Vessels’ recent album Dilate wasn’t club-ready enough for you (unlikely, but I’ll continue), Dilate Remixes should sort you right out. They’ve called in the minimal techno talents of Barker & Baumecker, the housey vibes of Ripperton, and Monkeytown man Alex Banks, for a deep, hedonistic trio of reinterpretations. 12” on Bias.

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.

Sipps

Mark Broom
Stunned (97 Mix) / Decay

Works old and new from Pure Plastic label-owner Mark Broom for this release on Robert Hood’s famed M-Plant label. As implied, Stunned (97 Mix) dates from way back when, though it’s thudding powers have been tweaked to 2015 levels without losing that original sound.

Moufang / Czamanski
Live in Seattle

David Moufang and Jordan Czamanski have been working in electronic music in various forms for decades. That experience shows on Live In Seattle, which is that rarest of things: an improvised, totally live techno set. Over 99 minutes, they move through deeply atmospheric series of peaks and troughs, enrapturing the audience (and now you!). On Further Records.

Jackie House
Stydive

Jackie House gives it all away with the name eh? Turns out they live up to the moniker though, with Stydive, a clear and present dancefloor danger with old school drum machine rhythm and trippily echoing vocals. On the B-side, Matrixxman tries his hand at a thud-tastic remix. 12” on Dark Entries spin-off label HNYTRX.

Ipman
Depatterning

After raising anticipation with a series of 12” releases on various labels, Ipman is now ready to deploy his first full-length. Depatterning lands on Tectonic with a thud, pulling in modular and granular synthesis systems along with advanced drum programming. The results are glorious, with each track providing a wealth of details on top of the rhythms. CD or double LP.

Hodge / Bruce
Amor Fati (Peverelist Remix) / Tilikum (Hodge Remix)

Another release on Livity Sound’s conceptually insane reverse label dnouS ytiviL.

Both tracks pulse and flex their way to essential groover status. 12” vinyl.

Seth Troxler
DJ-Kicks

The latest installment in the DJ Kicks series sees Seth Troxler stepping up to the decks. This isn’t a peak-hour club mix, but one that can be enjoyed in multiple scenarios. Tracks from Derrick Carter, Herbert and Sun Ra to name but a few. Different tracklistings on the CD and the 2LP. Released by !K7.

Donato Dozzy
The Loud Silence

Donato Dozzy decided to make this record using nothing but a selection of mouth harps, which he has treated and layered into a bizarre landscape of noises. It’s an odd, but certainly impressive piece of work. The Loud Silence is part of a series that Further Records are releasing that feature only one instrument.

MG

Capracara & JTC
Bubble 'N' Squeak / Reggie, Don't Panic

The third release on One Day Wonder sees a bumping rhythmic exercise take place led by JTC (Tadd Mullinix) and Capracara.

Shawlands Arcade
RAD-ZOD1

Shawlands Arcade’s two newest tracks are out on Rubadub, the Glaswegian label who’ve brought us stacks of the good stuff over the years (Model 500, cv313…). RAD-ZOD1 cuts straight to the peak-hour club core with thrusting bass and relentless drum pads. Plus, one of the tracks is called ‘The Bro-House Anthem’! Not really for bro’s though...

Ron Morelli
A Gathering Together

Dom Fernow’s Hospital Productions label has been gradually following his path towards techno, though without fully shedding the harsh distortions we’d expect given the label’s past. L.I.E.S head Ron Morelli manages all of that, with a full-length that will pound you with heavy dancing all night long. A Gathering Together is available as an LP.

Jeff Mills
Exhibitionist 2

Jeff Mills has long been regarded as an originator, and rightly so. Exhibitionist 2 has him pushing things forward again by attempting to show audiences what an ambitious live DJ is actually doing. Turns out it isn’t just pressing play. Multiple shows with multiple camera angles show the techno maestro at work: CD of some unreleased tracks too!

Kit Grill
Paradise

Kit Grill has five tight new tracks to present to the world, and this time he’s sending them out via the Vase label. Shiny house exultations from a sleek future world where unpleasantness seems to have been eliminated in favour of warm good times. Reminiscent of some of Ikonika’s textures at times. The Paradise 12” is released by Vase.

Helena Hauff
Discreet Desires

‘Discreet Desires’ is the debut solo album from German electro artist Helena Hauff. Driven by a fascination with the relationship between artist and machine, Hauff creates a spontaneous, analogue generated techno, through freestyle jams and improvisation.

Faces of Drums / Steve Poindexter
Faces Drums / Short Circuit

A reissue 12” here that gathers classic old tracks from Steve Poindexter and his Faces of Drums alias.

On Musique.

Joe Farr & Martyn Hare
Mode EP

The Mode EP contains three pieces of straight-up old-school techno in a British stylee. Joe Farr and Martyn Hare have both made good names for themselves already, and together they double down into even more intense territory. Everything is totally kicking off on this 12” on Dutch label Leyla Records.
  • Genre(s):

Antenna Happy
Pinto EP

Antenna Happy (the electronic music project of Nathan Pope) has been away from music for a full twenty years, remarkably enough. The Pinto EP is a great way to re-enter the scene, a bright and shiny set of forward-pushing techno with some very nice and spacey production techniques. 12” on Reinhardt.
  • Genre(s):
  • Techno / Dub Techno / Experimental House

Cooly G
Armz House EP

The ever-unpredictable Cooly G hits us with another curveball following the quiet storm R&B of 2014's Wait 'Til Night LP. Stepping aside from the emotive and sexually charged material of the previous release, the five tracks that make up Armz House constitute the London DJ/producer's individual take on stripped-back house. The fact that it works so well is testament to her talent.
