Donato Dozzy
Filo Loves The Acid

Everyone's favourite Italian lake-dweller sloshes about in the waters and then readies a new LP for Tresor. Filo Loves the Acid is a homage to the Roland TB-303 bass synth; they've given him homework to make some proper workouts with it. For someone who made a whole record out of mouth harp experiments, it should be a cake wal...view item »

Scopex 1998-2000

An essential box set that combines the legacies of Tresor and Scopex together, reissuing material from Simulant and Pollon. The basis of the release is drum machines and synth arpeggios, but the diversity of even this refined fragment of wider electronic music is clear, especial...view item »

Porter Ricks
Anguilla Electrica

I used to think nautical German techno was all about U96 - Das Boot. Then I switched to Porter Ricks. I’ve waited seventeen years for this record, and so to celebrate, I’ve climbed into my wetsuit, ripped open a packet of prawn cocktail flavour crisps and put my Finding Nemo DVD on with the volume m...view item »

Kern means core in German, and is a mix series from the Tresor label. The last three instalments mixed by Objekt, DJ Deep, and DJ Hell, now Detroit’s DJ Stingray (Urban Tribe) is at the helm for volume 4. Featuring cuts from Drexciya...view item »

Porter Ricks
Shadow Boat EP

Returning after a whopping 17 year hiatus, Porter Ricks are back. The duo return with Shadow Boat EP, a deeply nuanced comeback that explores unfathomable ambience. Glitchy and gurgling synths ebb away across the 3-track offering, which concludes at the pulsating, dancefloor-ready Ha...view item »

Transllusion
Mind Over Positive and Negative Dimensional Matter

Tresor is one of Berlin's finest outlets for techno and heady electronic productions, and now they're re-iussing 'Mind Over Positive and Negative Dimensional Matter'. Phew. Let's just take a breather. The record is one of Transllusions', aka one half of Drexciya -- producer James Marcel Stinson, and it originally came out in 2001. Defying the no...view item »

Terrence Dixon
Like A Thief In The Night EP

Even though he apparently retired from making music in 2014 Detroit techno producer Terrence Dixon (Population One) has been putting out a solid stream of releases on Modularz and Out-Er.

Dreamy Harbor

Over the years, Berlin techno institution Tresor’s compilations have been invaluable surveys of current developments in techno. Their latest ‘Dreamy Harbour’ is no different - a collection of tracks marking a quarter of a century of activity for the legendary label/club night. ...view item »

Surgeon
Force + Form

This disc surely shows Surgeon's most accessible side. Rather than the twisted ambient tracks and disassociating metallic loops found on basictonalvocabulary and Balance, which, don't get me wrong, are Mr. Child's great strong suit, he attacks here with a deeper style. Hidden beneath his powerful shuffling drum loops are spooky vocal abstraction...view item »

Terrence Dixon
From The Far Future

Berlin techno experts Tresor dig all the way back to 2000, when Terrence Dixon’s debut full-length album was first released. Of course, this is premium Detroit material for dancefloor propulsion, from a master producer on the rise. As well as the whole of From The Future pressed to two LPs, this reissue also adds ...view item »

Mike Parker
Disintegrating Sand EP

Debuting on Tresor Records is Mike Parker - Disintegrating Sand EP being his first release on the the label. The 4-track EP is distinctly minimal and characterised by propulsive drum beats and minimal arpeggios. This edition is typically nuanced, and perfect for lovers of introverted dance music with a sp...view item »

Drexciya
Hydro Doorways

The “Hydro Doorways” EP was originally released in 2000. It's long out of print and in dire need of a reissue. Here it is! This compliments of the Neptune's Lair LP and could be described as a sister release. Gerald Donald and James Stinson were at the height of their game when this baby was originally released and fans of techn...view item »

Surgeon
Basictonal-Remake

‘Basictonal-Remake’ is a remake of tracks taken from one of the greatest albums from the impressive and extensive back catalogue of German electro institution, Tresor Records. Originally released in the late nineties as part of a trilogy of Surgeon albums (‘Basictonalvocabulary’, ‘Balance’ and ‘Force + F...view item »

Drexciya
Digital Tsunami

Sadly ‘electro’ is now all too often synonymous with mostly terrible stuff -- electroclash, electro swing, etc. Well, Drexciya was electro at its best - hard, dark, and fast. As a new wave of young producers are obviously going back to these roots -- a quick listen to Objekt’s Flatland, one of the best...view item »

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...view item »

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 prop...view item »

Quality Surgeon gear here from 1998, back in print on Tresor with alternate versions of tracks from his excellent ‘Balance’ album from the same year. ‘Box Version II’ dispenses with the more jacking elements of the original, foregrounding infectious polyrh...view item »

Drexciya
Neptune's Lair

I bring this week's review odyssey to a close with this tasty reissue of a stone cold electroid techno classic, Drexciya's debut full length 'Neptune's Lair'. At this point they'd got a fair few 12"s under their belt, the first coming out seven years prior in 1992, but this 17-track voyage showcased a scope previously only hinted at. The...view item »

Drexciya
Harnessed The Storm

There are few acts in underground dance music who inspire as much reverence as the Detroit electro duo Drexciya. Their radically futuristic grooves were steeped in a mystery that was enhanced by their anti-mainstream anonymity and mythical identification with technologically advanced aquatic descendents of Africans...view item »

Surgeon
Tresor 97-99

Tresor 97-99 gathers up three old Surgeon releases that appeared on the Tresor label in the 90’s: Basictonalvocabulary, Balance, Form + Focus. Totally classic Surgeon sound, strict techno on 3 CDs, packaged in a beautiful box. The best part is that this box-set comes wit...view item »

Transllusion
The Opening Of The Cerebral Gate

It's fucking hard to categorize Drexciya (& their many fantastic offshoots)! I say bloody just as well cos as a guy that has to do reviews every week, i'm bloody sick of trying! The finest tunes have their own agenda, away from idiots with little boxes. Ok, if I were to put them in a box it'd be a big thick waterproof laminated one with a thriv...view item »

A Man Dies In The Street Pt. 2

Roger Semsroth unleashes the second half of his ‘A Man Dies In The Street’ 12”s for Tresor. Beginning with the uncompromising ‘5’ which sounds remarkably like early Regis with it’s heavy monotone stripped back groove. Regis has undoubtedly been a hug...view item »

Peter Van Hoesen
Life Performance

Up there in the foot of the pennines I envisage our resident techno expert Ant weeping when perusing our ham-fisted attempts to describe his favourite genre.  I will do my best to do justice to this live album by the acclaimed Belgian producer, although when I say live, you are not hearing whoops of the crowd and ‘Antwerp We Love Ya&r...view item »

Juan Atkins and Moritz Von Oswald
Borderland

Ultra heavyweight masters of techno collaboration here. It’s been some years since we had these guys on record together. ‘Borderland’ is released on CD and across three limited edition heavyweight vinyl 12”s which are limited to 500 copies so I don’t expect they’ll hang around for too long. I’ve heard th...view item »

A Man Dies In The Street Pt. 1

It's always a good day for me whenever Roger Semsroth unleashes a new 12" under his Sleeparchive alias. This is the first 12" in a two part series following his debut release for Tresor 'Ronan Point'. The A1 chugs along with a big old kick propelling distant unsettling indus...view item »

Infiniti aka Juan Atkins
The Remixes - Part 3

Ronan Point

Nothing makes my day go bang better than a quality bit of techno. After a slew of esoteric self-released & hand-stamped 12s & a couple of double EPs years ago, the man sometimes also known as Skanfrom - Roger Semsroth -...view item »

Jeff Mills
Waveform Transmissions Vol. 1

Prominent 80s DJ and techno icon Jeff Mills originally released 'Waveform Transmissions Vol. 1' in 1992; it was his debut record and is considered a pioneering work in the type of electronic music that now dominates all others. Rawer than the works he would go on to make -- a darker and quite Berlin-influenced work on his part -- 'Waveform ...view item »
