Review: Daniel Avery was one of 2012's most refreshing success stories; his Fabric mix and two EPs for Erol Alkan's Phantasy Sound may not have slotted comfortably into any of the current flavours of the month, but they shone through thanks to their singular approach to techno. "Drone Logic" was one of the highlights of his second Phantasy release, where an old school progressive house bassline is chewed to pieces by bursts of electronic feedback, and this single release sees Factory Floor's Gabe Gurnsey provide a fine remix that sounds remarkably restrained for a member of the inheritors of Throbbing Gristle's throne; like Avery's original Gurnsey keeps things mid-tempo but strips everything back to basics, with a simple analogue arpeggio which adds an early industrial quality.

Review: The rise of London producer Daniel Avery has been little short of staggering. Less than two years ago, he was relatively unknown beyond the confines of blogland. Now, thanks to a string of acclaimed productions and a blossoming DJ career, he's been afforded the opportunity to mix the latest instalment of the FabricLive series. Musically, FabricLive 66 offers a snapshot of where he's at now, delivering a tough but flowing mix of fuzzy electronic rhythms, stripped-back techno, gnarled acid house and tactile, next-level electronica (see Gatto Fritto's superb remix of JR Seaton's "Way Savvy"). There are also occasional forays into electroclash-ish territory (Miss Kittin, Raudive) and a smattering of Avery's own productions, making FabricLive 66 a formidable proposition.

Review: An ironic title if ever we saw one; man-of-the-moment Avery doesn't need electronics... This cat's wired for sound every which way but loose! And we mean wired; every cut here is created using classic analogue gear and comes with all the warmth and electronic soul you would expect. With a very linear, stripped back approach throughout, each track comes with its own distinctive character. The title track is almost "Erotic Discourse" flavoured in its ever-developing tweaks and phrases. "Taste" comes complete with an edgy vocal refrain that unnerves and pleases at the same time. "One In The Wave" is just one long wondrous drone while "The Eagle" finishes the set with a sexy, low-swung groove that just won't quit.

Review: Having been welcomed into the Phantasy Sound fold earlier this summer with the excellent Need Electric EP, Daniel Avery's musical tastes are further represented with this one sided white label brandishing a rather excellent, knackered pirate radio remix of "Taste" from Paul Woolford under his recently established Special Request alias. Supposedly the first of several such releases (Photonz are also due to be involved) Woolford brilliantly messes with Avery's programming here, transforming one of the oddest tracks made for dancefloor purposes into a constantly spiralling array of busted up, recycled drum breaks. It's all expertly edited by Woolford and the merest hint of the original's slightly unnerving guttural analogue thrust remains intact. A quite superb DJ tool that sets the standards for who the label looks to next!

Review: This young DJ /producer is one of 2012's most promising new artists - take one listen to Water Jump and it's clear why he is so hyped. "Reception" uses a mutant, noisy take on Chicago house basslines to brutal effect, while "Drone Logic" also revisits the past to create a new vision for the future. There, heavy drums roll in and an old school progressive house bassline - one that sounds more Guerilla than Digweed - is chewed to pieces by bursts of electronic feedback. But it's "A Quiet Life" that really stands out. Underpinned by a splurging bass, haunting angelic voices breeze in as psychedelic drums that have little bearing to traditional house / techno structures explode through the speakers.

Review: This could be a match made in heaven. On one side, rising star Daniel Avery (aka Stopmakingme), on the other, veteran producer, DJ and all round legend Justin Robertson (here appearing under recently-adopted Deadstock 33s pseudonym). Musically, "Nylon Icon" and "New Moon" are typical of Robertson's recent work, offering a dark but addictive fusion of bubbling electronic disco, vintage dark wave synth-pop and analogue house. "Eric Zann Revisited" flips the script slightly, touching on Italo whilst retaining a bouncy electronic groove. Remix wise, there's an acid-flecked tweak of the latter track by Filthy Dukes, whilst People Get Real deliver an off-kilter, cowbell-heavy version of "New Moon".
