Review: Delsin is one of techno music's most established operations, but it deserves kudos for promoting new talents. Most of the acts that feature on this second Inertia sampler on its Ann Aimee offshoot were unknown two years ago, but as their contributions demonstrate, their work is deserving of a bigger audience. Marcelus's "24/7" is a strafing minimal track guided to a climax by subtle filters. Sigha's "Finding Myself" also features lithe metallic rhythms, but the chiming bells lend it a more atmospheric feeling, while Area 41's "CNTCT" is a lethal concoction of seared acid bass, warped rhythms and doubled up claps. However, despite the preponderance of so many new acts, the most intense track is the noisy, distorted analogue howl of Redshape's "Static."

Review: Delsin's masked crusader returns with his fifth EP on the ever reliable Dutch imprint. The three tracks on offer here showcase Redshape's sure hand with vintage production, with "Future Shock" a veritable analogue stew of swirling computer game bleepy synths and shuffling drum programming. "Kung Fu" sees the producer pay homage to the jacking sounds of Chicago, while the crunchy stomp juxtaposed by intergalactic synths of "Manhattan" pleases our ears immensely. Top release.

Review: Sebastian Kramer's debut Redshape album, The Dance Paradox, was an ambitious work, with the German producer making reference to Carl Craig, Moodymann and deep house producers like Chez Damier. Its follow up, Square, has a smaller range, but its tighter focus means that it sounds more like Redshape himself than those he takes inspiration from. All of the elements that have made the project so respected are present here: "It's In Rain" teems with crisp drums and the brooding, humming bass, grainy and crackling, that has become the project's staple - the inclusion of an astronaut sample adds some levity to a sound sometimes seen as ultra-serious. "Starsoup" sees Kramer strip away the layers and focus on the groove, with a bleepy bassline and noisy, broken beats prevailing, while "Departing" is a fantastically hypnotic, expansive deep techno workout. One of Redshape's other sides is audible on "Moods & Mice". Like some of the material on The Dance Paradox, "Moods" features lazy drums and warm synth lines. He explores this theme further on "Paper". Like Paradox, it sounds like Redshape has hired a live drummer and he she/he freeforms their way through textured sounds. So while Squares is a deft distillation of Redshape's nuances, it also features a left of centre take on hip-hop, with Space Ape chatting over the loose, mid-tempo drums of "Until We Burn".

Paris - (6:28) 125 BPM

Review: As the title of Redshape's latest release suggests, the material contained therein was recorded during two of his live shows. Typically, the man in the red mask's performance is fluid and freeform by nature, but "London" illustrates that he has also instilled some discipline into his sets. It is more functional than usual and revolves around a driving, heads-down rhythm, firing hi-hats and a murky, grainy bass. By contrast, "Paris" is more sophisticated; while Redshape's powerful drums and cavernous sub-bass provide the backdrop, the track recorded in the French capital is full of mysterious synth flourishes - and adds some elegance to his catalogue.

Review: The man in the red mask presents a less singular and more accessible approach on the second Red Pack release. "Path Dub Mix" sees him go down the Chain Reaction route, as a fathomic bass underscores wave upon wave of dubby chords, while in another sideways move, "The Source" is all live, crashing drums and searing synth lines. There are hints of the Redshape of old on the original version of "Path", where eerie synths form over rasping percussion and steely drums, while both "Disco Marauder" and "Daft Mode" both unfolds to the sound of typical churning, brooding basslines. Despite these links to the past, "Bulp Head" shows that he is moving on, with a wired Japanese vocal sample bubbling up through the evocative synth line.

Review: There's an uncanny, yet distorted resemblance to Kassem Mosse's "578" in Redshape's raving "Tel Aviv", the first cut from a series of EPs the German plans to release to mark a decade of live performance. To be released across a range of labels, Gerd Janson's Running Back is first up to honour the masked producer with his personal celebration of music. "Rome" on the otherhand swerves any real melody, instead focusing its attentions of snarling white noise, in your face bass and a cut up vocals to make you dance!

Review: While Redshape certainly has a way with melody, his real skill is drum programming. Even his most metronomic techno productions are blessed with swing, shuffle and a percussive looseness that belies their thunderous heaviness. Further proof of his skill with drums can be found on Bonuz Beatz Volume 1, a quartet of stripped-back but surprisingly lively percussion tools guaranteed to ignite dancefloors. Each of the cuts, from the handclap-laden low-slung bounce of "Itz" and tech-jazz swing of "Finizh", to the cowbell-laden vintage breakbeat-house goodness of "Dogz" and basement techno slammer "Zteel", feels like an invitation to lose it out on the dancefloor. Making drum tracks this addictive is a skill, and Redshape is undoubtedly a master of the groove.

Review: Redshape's last outing on Running Back, Bonuz Beatz Vol 1, was something of a stripped-back affair, offering a quartet of forthright DJ tools. Here, the masked techno producer returns to his usual full-throttle best. The original version of "Leaves" is decidedly robust, with clipped acid lines, electronic squeaks and a rumbling bassline riding a locked-in groove. The "Rotated Mix" offers a little more space for the groove to breathe, with Redshape getting busy with drum machine handclaps, hissing cymbals and classic rave-era stabs. The "Stripped 2 Clip & 303" version, meanwhile, pushes the nagging acid lines to the four, stretching them out over a tweaked, cowbell-laden groove.

Review: The masked wonder returns after some time spent away with a new two track throwdown for Nonplus. After last year saw a pair of 12"s drop on Running Back, it's been a fairly quiet time in the world of Redshape, but he comes to Boddika's label with his surefire analogue intent intact, dropping a pair of assured club jams oozing with warmth and funk. "I Feel Like Riot" rumbles along on a crunchy set of percussion, around which wobbling LFOs of bass and plush synth hits spiral outwards in a fine Motor City tradition. "The Rift" meanwhile drops a slick set of conga-enhanced drum science with a different salvo of thick, throbbing melodic twists for the sleazy end of the dance.

Review: It is hard to believe that this record is nearly 10 years old. When it appeared back in 2007 on Redshape's own label, the title track's eerie synths and uncontrollable splurging bass sounded like a revelation. Indeed, this type of raw techno was a breath of fresh but menacing air amid the slew of synthetic mnml sounds. On the flip, "Black Dust" isn't quite as heavy and takes inspiration from US deep house, thanks to its bleeding, Chicago bass and melancholic synths. As techno is once again plunged into a world of sixth form misery, we need records like Unfinished Symmetry more than ever.

Review: This is only Redshape's second release this year, but it shows that the masked man has not lost his ability to conjure up atmospheric techno. The title track is typical of his sound, with a dense, upbuilding groove playing host to swirling synths, acid pirouettes and even some deranged vocal chants in the background. "Paper Blades" is a more unusual composition; it sees the masked man slow down the tempo and drop loose break beats. Against this laid back framework, he lays down Pete Namlook-style soothing ambient textures and supernatural, swirling textures that prove once again that Redshape is not a typical techno producer.

Area Forty One - "Supervoid" - (6:18) 124 BPM

Review: Dutch techno titans Delsin recently celebrated a century of releases with the feverishly good 100DSR compilation. Here they deliver a fourth digital EP of material from the collection, showcasing three of the album's genuine highlights. Redshape's fittingly named "100 (Classic Mix)" is probably the pick. In best Redshape style, it's a near 11-minute journey into jazz-tinged Detroit techno revivalism; classic yet contemporary, driving yet emotionally rich. Area Forty One's "Supervoid" delivers some spookier, deeper techno thrills, while D5's delicious "Stem Cell" - his first new material in some years - bubbles and spits with melodic brilliance. Impressive stuff, all told.

Review: To date, Dekmantel's Anniversary Series of singles has proved to be something of a hit, delivering high quality deep house, acid and techno from such formidable talents as Hunee, Juju & Jordash, Skudge and Lone. Predictably, this fifth instalment is just as impressive as its predecessors, offering wildly contrasting fare from Redshape and Fudge Fingas. While the latter's fluid, loose, jazz-flecked "Light In My Life" impresses greatly, it's Redshape who wins the day. His "Flexx" is unashamedly powerful - a sweaty, percussive roller full of shuffling military drums, stargazing techno melodies, foreboding strings and booming bassline pressure. It's arguably his best for sometime.

Review: German producer Redshape featured on Steffi's recent Panorama Bar mix, opening the selection with the deep ambience of his Palisade project. In this instance however, he focuses on the dance floor and "Focus" brings with it the menace and swagger we have come to expect from the man in the red mask. Waves of percussion hiss and itch, mournful tones play in the background and at the arrangement's heart is a bass that is by turns grinding, brooding and ominous. Steffi also contributes a track, "Attacke"; its claps are heavy and chords are eerie, but its pounding groove cannot compare to the Red menace.
