Played by: Resident Advisor
Review: Well isn't this a combining of superpowers if we ever saw one. Two of techno's master producers team up to inaugurate Rhythm Assault. Germany's Martin Buttrich has been a gun for hire for almost twenty years producing everyone from Timo Maas to Loco Dice before striking out on his own ten years ago with hits such as Full Clip and Stoned Autopilot, plus starting the Desolat imprint. Canada's Mathew Jonson should need no introduction. One of techno's best live acts, a producer with the most unmistakeable sound and one of the brains behind seminal label Wagon Repair. "Synchronicity" features Jonson's haunting melodies and vocoded murmurs over Buttrich's tightly structured and infectious rhythm groove. It's one funky affair as you'd imagine; cruise control for the post peak time hours.

Review: Agents of Time marks Mathew Jonson's debut solo album nearly a decade after his debut EP, New Identity, on the Itswhatitis imprint, and sees the Canadian present a consummate mixture of abstract downtempoisms and all consuming excursions into melodic techno. Album opener "Love In The Future" is a stuttering swoop through crystalline and lushly orchestrated electronica which descends into an ever decreasing synth wash before emerging on the other side via the punchy melodic techno of "Girls Can Dance". A sombre mood permeates throughout, a reflective synth melody central to the slow pace of "Night Vision" and "Pirates In The 9th" characterised by a sinister bass line floating underneath gentle IDM clicks and cuts. A rare digression from the sedateness is provided by the Hi NRG thump of "Sunday Morning Disco" and shares billing of album highlight with an alternate take on Jonson's 2005 masterpiece "Marionette".

Passage To The Other Side - (11:29) 126 BPM
from $1.95
Review: Anyone who followed Mathew Jonson's development since the early 00s will welcome the relaunch of Itiswhatitis. It was this label, formerly owned and run by Canadian DJ Spencer Drennan, that provided a platform for early Jonson and Cobblestone Jazz material. Now that Jonson himself is at the helm, having bought the rights to the label from Drennan, it comes as no surprise that the approach harks back to the early period of his career. The title track contains an unmistakably lithe, supple rhythm, a bubbly bassline and trancey melodies literally dancing over the arrangement. "Passage To The Other Side" has a tougher, more moody bass, but again Jonson offsets it with angelic, ethereal melodies.

Review: After his welcome return to the long-player format for Crosstown Rebels in the shape of Her Blurry Pictures, three of Mathew Jonson's creations from the record have been given over to a fine selection of remixers to bring their own interpretations to bear on the plush electronic soul the Canadian champ peddles. Dixon makes for a snug fit on "Level 7", simmering the original down without losing any of the celestial magic of those trademark Jonson synths. Tale Of Us bring a live, skippy feel to "Kissing Your Eyes" with some hands-on drums and warbling keys a plenty. Akufen meanwhile seems to be reaching more towards his Horror Inc project as he muses on "Body In Motion" in a low-slung, jazz-inflected style with a healthy dose of micro shuffle thrown in for good measure.

Review: Canadian producer Jonson unveiles his second solo album. While there are signs that his sound is gradually mutating, for those who were seduced by 'Marionette', there is plenty to get excited about here. "Level 7" offers up those typical, slightly detuned trance melodies that Jonson forged his reputation on, set to a rolling groove and heavy claps, while the title track's psychedelic hooks float through a fluffy ambient backdrop. But "Pictures" also shows that Jonson has moved on; "Touch the Sky" features the kind of jazzy licks that Cobblestone Jazz specialise in - set to a rumbling bass - and more impressively, "Sahara" sees him lay down evocative blues guitar over a pulsing, rhythm track. The approach may have changed, but originality remains his strong point.

Review: In a day and age of podcast saturation, you've got to hand it to institutions like fabric for still believing in the power of the mix CD. As always, their selection of mixes are just as brilliantly curated as their club nights. This time it's Victoria, British Columbia's legendary Mathew Jonson stepping up and delivering a recording of one of his legendary live sets (at the club's 15th birthday no less) for our listening pleasure. The Wagon Repair main man's unmistakeable sound is captured over 75 minutes and features some of his classics like "Marionette", "Decompression and "Learning To Fly" as well as some remixes and previously unreleased material.

Review: Mathew Jonson presented us with the fabric 84 mix this year and now we have one of the new and as yet unreleased cuts from the rather well received mix, recorded live at the super club's 15th birthday. Equal parts funky and melodic as it is driving and hypnotic; it's yet another one of those drifting journey tracks that you can imagine hearing transition perfectly into peak time energy. I has all the hallmarks of the Canadian's sound that has propelled him to the top of the game in the last 12 years of his career.

Review: Canadian techno maestro Mathew Jonson burst onto the scene in a big way in the mid noughties. One of his breakout tunes was in the form of "Decompression" released on Richie Hawtin's esteemed m_nus imprint. Now the 2005 dancefloor bomb gets a series of modern revisions by an all star cast. dBridge is starting with the "Ambient Pressure remix", an even more brooding and atmospheric than the original. The cavernous sonar bleeps, gloomy pads and sharp rhythms of the original remain, except for its signature 'techstep' style sub-bass: which is replaced by a gnarly, glitched out arpeggio. Autonomic and all round UK drum and bass hero dBridge steps up next, with an 'edit' but it's actually the breakneck junglist steeper that the track has been begging to be transformed into for years: it's worth the wait! Elsewhere, fellow British Columbian and Wagon Repairman Konrad Black appears with more great music after a long hiatus: he too returning to his UK influenced roots (don't forget some of his first tunes were on the likes of Ed Rush & Optical's Virus Recordings), albeit taking his cues from the more modern post UK bass sounds on his remix of the timeless classic

Review: What a collaboration this is! Two of the modern masters of hypnotic techno (and dynamic live acts alike) team up for some elaborate, melodic and truly entrancing auditory journeys for Hypercolour. Mathew Jonson should need no introduction: the Canadian producer bursting onto the scene in the mid noughties with releases on itiswhatitis and his own Wagon Repair imprint. Sebastian Mullaert also has a long history in electronic music; at one time part of duo Minilogue in addition to recording for Kontra Musik and m_nus more recently and running his great WaWuWe label. Strap yourself in for an epic journey across all its 12 minutes of glory on St "Pollen 4 Life (main mix)" where a medley of dreamy and gliding arpeggios dance away over subtle and minimal elements; a trademark of both respective producers. The dub version is much tougher and darker; aimed squarely at the dancefloor to get into some of those more tunnelling, vortex like moments.

Review: Steve Lawler's respected VIVa Music celebrates a decade in the business and what better to celebrate than with a various artists' compilation; the second part in fact. Starting out with head honcho Lawler's funky disco house jam "Show The Way" this one is definitely super fly, if you catch our drift! Polish duo Catz N Dogz stay on the funky and filtered disco house tip with "Ali". What is this, a late nineties tribute? 'Cause we're loving it all the same! Canadian hardware maverick and all round genius Mathew Jonson breaks the mould, providing the typically minimal and hypnotic groove of "1234567" while speaking of minimal; nobody does it quite like the Romanians. Their nation's finest, Livio & Roby, turn in the rolling and downright stomping "9 De Ville".
