Review: Wake Up marks a belated return to action from Liam Wachs, previously famous for helming the Desert Sound Colony project on Scissor & Thread. Now operating as DSC, this four-tracker is Wachs's debut solo release under the freshly minted alias. He serves up two top-notch original tracks: the loose-but-punchy deep house cut "Wake Up", where trippy, textured guitar and flute sounds combine with dreamy pads and a jaunty analogue synth bassline, and the Balearic techno throb of "Coming Round", which includes a stylish vocal from Wachs and some seriously rugged electronics. The accompanying remix package is headed up hotly tipped newcomer Elliot Anderson's sleazy Italo-disco style makeover of "Wake Up" (arguably the EP's standout moment), though Rex The Dog's rolling-but-wild house remake of "Coming Round" is also pretty strong.

Review: Helmut Josef Geier, also known as the rampant DJ Hell, has been a Berlin mainstay since the early 90s, and he's among the few artists to have always remained in a state of flux. We don't mean that he's reinvented himself at the arrival of every new subgenre, far from it; Hell has always been a producer who offers a wide and playful range of house and techno, often guided by wacky samples from all corners of the scene. Fittingly, International Deejay Gigolo is his own imprint, and this new four-tracker comes at a perfect time; the scene is undefined and explorative at the moment, so a tune like "Car Car Car" is EXACTLY what our charts need for a little refresh - Kraftwerkian synths blend ever so well with a mid-tempo beat made of steely drums and balearic charm. The three remixes add to the feast: Roman Flugel's version breaks the groove down and adds an added layer of computer voices to the mix, while Phil Kieran's first version, the Autobahn mix, offers a speedy club re-imagination, while the Drum remix strips the whole thing down to a driving pile of machine noise. Excellent.

Review: A decade ago, the Dekmantel crew threw their first party in the Dutch capital; two years later the record label followed. For their decennial anniversary, Dekmantel Records are releasing 10 very special EPs over the course of 2017. The fourth release in their celebratory series is a collection of new material from some of the label's favourite artists. This fourth edition brings together their love of electro and wave influenced grooves by the likes of Los Angeles electro legend The Egyptian Lover, who serves up the aptly titled "This That Old School" which proves to all the bandwagon jumping wannabes what 'real' electro is. Staying on that retro flavoured tip are the Antinote affiliated Syracuse & Epsilove doing some acid infused analogue jack by way of pop on "Scubatomic Love". Finally, they look locally with the Red Light Radio affiliated/Rush Hour 'analogue adventurist' Interstellar Funk: who pursues some retro/balearic vibes on the sublime "EFX Harmonix"

Review: There's a reason that Drexciya are considered by many to be the most influential of all Detroit techno and electro acts. Aside from their addictive combination of mysticism and mystery, Gerald Donald and James Stinson made fabulous music - genuinely otherworldly electronic compositions that have stood the test of time. Whether you're a confirmed fan or Drexciyan novice, Journey Of The Deep Sea Dweller should be essential listening. The first of four collections of classic material to be released by Clone, it gathers together their brilliant early '90s works in newly remastered form. Bristling with raw analogue funk and far-sighted techno, it's a timely reminder of their immense talents. Simply essential.

Review: Fresh from mixing the latest instalment of Fabric's mix series, Panorama Bar resident Steffi launches a new sub-label, Dolly Deluxe. Many of the tracks that feature on Fabric 94 also appear across the first four EPs on this offshoot. The second Dollydeluxe release boasts an atmospheric feeling, but with a dance floor bias. This is evident on Answer Code Request's stirring break beat opener, "Forking Path" and Voiski's brooding acid stepper, "Sound of Distance". Dexter, one of Steffi's closest peers, opts for a stern, steely electro approach on "66", while 214, fresh from his release on Lunar Disko, moves back towards ethereal sounds with the widescreen synths and ERP-style bass of "Sound Moments".

Review: Over the years, Joey Negro has delivered compilations focusing on a wide range of styles and sub-genres, including soulful disco, Italo-house, early U.S disco-rap, and Washington D.C go-go. Now he's turned his attention to electro, the style that did more than any other to inspire Britain's first wave of DJs and dance music producers. This "personal collection" contains a mixture of stone-cold scene classics - Aleem's Leroy Burgess-fronted "Release Yourself", Hashim's scene anthem "Al Naayafiysh (The Soul)" and Dwayne Omar's P-funk influenced "This Party's Jam Packed" - alongside deeper selections such as Kosmic Light Force's brilliant - and hard to find - L.A electrofunk classic "Mysterious Waves", and The Russell Brothers thrillingly intergalactic "The Party Scene".

Review: The diverse musical tastes of Phillip Solman are evident once again on this second round of remixes tied to his fine 2014 album Decay. There is something for all fans of contemporary techno here as ERP (aka Gerard Hanson), Don Williams, Johannes Volk and Traumprinz all contribute to proceedings. Typically the ERP revision of "Decay" recasts the album's title track as rough, bouncing electro whilst Mojuba boss Don Williams flushes "Track 93" with new levels of Motor City indebted urgency over a throbbing low end bass groove. Mr Volk turns in a fine melodic tweak of "Parallaxis" though it's fairly overshadowed by the epic orchestral rendition from Giegling artist Traumprinz.

Review: Few electronic acts could easily sustain three expansive 'best of' compilations, but then Detroit techno-electro fusionists Drexciya weren't your average electronic artists. In the space of little more than 12 EPs and a handful of albums, released in a ten-year burst between 1992 and 2002, James Stinson and Gerald Donald did more to push electronic music forwards than many of their Motor City peers. This third retrospective in Clone's excellent Journey of the Deep Sea Dweller series expands on the first two volumes, swimming between atmospheric IDM ("Aqua Worm Hole", "Vampire Island"), balls-deep techno workouts ("Nautilus", "Intensified Magnetron") and shimmering future electro (the futuristic Kraftwerk vibes of "Aquabahn").

Review: French producer Julien Saillenfait began producing music at the age of 19. His prior releases on Clubwerks, Soul Notes and Boysnoize Records have been supported by some of the biggest names in techno. His mission with the Deapmash project is simply to provide bangers to ravers and DJs: and it's safe to say that's mission accomplished. On "Halcyon" he deconstructs rave techno into new forms and to interesting effect, while on "Solar 909" he teams up with Benjamin Damage for a furious broken beat techno workout that blows the bloody doors off!

Review: Oh yes, it's finally time for Steve Rachmad's Sterac Electronics to drop the highly anticipated Things To Think About LP on our charts! The Detroit veteran teased us with a sampler back in May, but this is the final product, and it's safe to say that you won't find such heartfelt electro anywhere else. In fact, the majority of elector being made nowadays, which there is plenty of, seems to be dark and gratuitously macabre, but Rachmad's got that MOJO vibe going all the way through this badboy. Tunes like "Game Changers" or "Metratron" use the unmistakable kinetic vibe associated to electro, but they do so in a way that's funky and enjoyable for all walk of life. There are darker, more cerebral moments like "Original Pattern" or "Beyond My Wishes", but these are still very much ingrained in a light, boogie-friendly sort of tip that keeps on giving. Pure electro class from the source!

Review: Die Wilde Jagd are Sebastian Lee Philip. Ralf Beck is musician and producer from Dusseldorf. He has released several albums as part of the duo Nalin & Kane, as well as under the name Unit 4. He collects old synthesizers and effect pedals and has worked with Karl Bartos. In his studio Uhrwald Orange, he has recorded music by Propaganda, Kreidler, Black Devil Disco and many more. Sebastian Lee Philip is part of the Berlin-based electro-wave duo Noblesse Oblige and composes music for theatre and radio plays. Between 2001 and 2006 he lived in London where he ran the club night 'Caligula' and performed as a DJ. "Geisterfahrer" is cosmic and spacey kraut rock that sees the pair propel you into the stratosphere. British duo Factory Floor's excellent remix strips things back and takes things on a darker and technological turn with this minimal electro epic. On the flip, "Drachenfels" sees Beck and Philip do their thing again: lose yourself in this eight minutes of absolute bliss awash in reverberated drums, delayed guitar riffs and splendid arpeggios.

Review: Good on Shir Khan. The Berliner known to his mutter as Jan Simon Spielberger does a fine job, running deep house label Exploited as well as holding down a residency at local institution Watergate plus hosting a weekly radio show on Radio Fritz for over eight years. On his latest various artists' compilation, we have some straight up, feelgood house vibes courtesy of the man with one serious neck tattoo; Spaniard Iban Montoro who teams up with Jazzman on "I Believe" also Rotterdam's Bas Roos turns in the very early Motor City Drum Ensemble/Raw Cuts sounding "Midnight People". Worthy mention also to G Markus from the Cayman Islands (supposedly!) who serves up "The Man From Planet Jazz", a smooth and sexy lo-slung groove for the late night.

Review: It's been a while since Clone last mined the undersea vaults of peerless Detroit electro/techno legends Drexciya. You'd expect the quality to dip a little on this fourth and final volume in the series, but Journey of the Deep Sea Dweller IV is every bit as essential as its predecessors. It's packed with far-sighted, next-level moments, from the bleak drum machine rhythms and gnarled electronics of "Hydro Cubes" and intense acid funk of "Aquatic Bata Particles", to the spine-tingling techno futurism of "Black Sea", the pure melodic joy of the rush-inducing "Sighting In The Abyss" and "Unknown Journey VII". A fitting finale to this excellent series from Clone.

Review: 10+ albums and 30+ years in the game and Rude 66 continues to remain exciting, innovative and focused on the fearful future. Now at home on local Delft label Bordello A Parigi, From Reason To Ritual brings us up to speed by way of the insistent synth shots of "On The Edge Of Time", the stuttering breaks and coldwave pads and haunted human textures of "Chasing After Shadows" and the staunch gothic sci-fi stomps of "I Represent The Darkness". Loaded with a gritty sense of foreboding and relentless techno pace throughout, if anything Rude 66 sounds even more relevant and resonant than ever before.

Review: Fresh from mixing the latest instalment of Fabric's mix series, Panorama Bar resident Steffi launches a new sub-label, Dolly Deluxe. Many of the tracks that feature on Fabric 94 also appear across the first four EPs on this offshoot. On the third Dollydeluxe release, the mood darkens temporarily. This is thanks to newcomer UAS dropping a lithe, acidic electro stepper in the shape of "World Gets Crazy". Nothus then revisits the evocative, atmospheric mood that shaped the preceding releases. Working as Late Night Approach, "Poison Valley" resounds to rolling 808s, widescreen synths and spacey bleeps. It makes for futuristic electro with a capital 'F'. Dutch veteran Duplex mixes steely funk with dreamy melodies on his contribution, "Voidfiller", while Mesak, who released before on Steffi's other label, Klakson, brings the third instalment to a close with the jittery "Commonaukko".

Review: The underground's most serious retroverts: Josh Cheon & Co. keep on doing their thing but we're most curious when they unearth new talent. Following in the footsteps on Linea Aspera, Summerian Fleet and Inhalt is now the Montreal based Solitary Dancer. Some of you may remember their eponymously titled debut E.P. on Midland's Graded imprint in late 2016 after the track "Desire & Apathy" was featured on his Essential Mix. Starting off with the afterhours noir house of "Anything" which is the perfect soundtrack to night of secrecy/desire and debauchery, there's then the brooding minimal electro bass of "Losing Touch" executing yet more stylish sleaze. If that wasn't enough, Montreal's favourite daughter Marie Davidson lends her sultry vocal talents to the bold nu-italo excursion "Emails 2 Myself".

Review: Keith Tenniswood (aka Radioactive Man) has always had a bit of an anti-authoritarian streak in him - from his ravey days in Two Lone Swordsmen to the creation of his new label, Asking For Trouble. The title of this new long player, Luxury Sky Garden, (his first since 2012) was inspired by the never-to-materialise public park at the top of London's Walkie Talkie building - originally promised by developers but quickly turned into the grounds of a luxury restaurant instead. The music is inspired by the live sets he's recently been playing and features 11 cuts of his signature mischievous electro and breaks.

Review: Demac has been releasing music on high-profile labels like Aus, Drumcode and Hypercolour for the past decade. As Sink or Swim shows, this is because the UK producer is adept at creating highly distinctive electronic music. The title track is a case in point; it features skipping drums, lithe percussion and frosty melodies, but underpinning these elements is a brutal, oppressive bass. It's the contrast between these two elements that makes "Sink.." so impressive. On "Mayfield Road", Demac moves in a radically different direction. Gone are the straight kicks, replaced by razor-sharp 808s, spacey pads and the kind of futuristic undercurrent that Detroit producers normally lay claim to.

Review: Fresh from mixing the latest instalment of Fabric's mix series, Panorama Bar resident Steffi launches a new sub-label, Dolly Deluxe. Many of the tracks that feature on Fabric 94 also appear across the first four EPs on this offshoot. The fourth Dollydeluxe is (more or less) a family affair; Privacy integrates wiry electro funk with ghetto style vocals on "Broke", while "Off The Beat" is the result of a collaboration from Dexter and Virginia, two of Steffi's closest peers. Featuring Virginia's seductive chants and Klakson co-founder Dexter's out there, psychedelic electro shapes, it's one of the most unusual cuts over the four Dollydeluxe records. Affix Naim put out his debut record on Dolly last year and returns here with "Saturniidae", which mixes splurging bass with deep, atmospheric synth lines. Closing out the fourth volume is Finnish producer Mesas, with the mechanical whirrs and ticks of "Elekieli" underpinning crystalline melodies.

Review: For the second release on his new eponymous imprint, David Kennedy serves up some more infectious oddball grooves that you have come to know from the man. On the brilliantly titled "Robin Chasing Butterflies", Kennedy does deep electro breaks with precision and style. Same goes for "Heal Me", but this one is even more hypnotic and ethereal in its melancholic grace. "Eels" on the other hand sees the formerly influential UK bass producer create a wonderful ambient soundscape conjured from the magic of analogue and modular machines to rather fascinating effect.

Review: Florian Meindl is no newcomer to the house and techno domain; the artist has been around since the early 2000's, and has been a prominent figure throughout the development of the two genres' various mutations and developments. Originally from Austria, Meindl has put out a vast majority of his music through his own Flash Recordings, but he's been a difficult one to pin down thanks to his constantly shifting array of sounds and new fascinations with dance music. Time Illusion sounds like one of his most accomplished pieces yet, and there isn't a moment on here where the listener is faced with predictability; instead there is a noticeable feeling that each new track will bring something new to the table. For instance, the switch from bleeping, acid-laden techno to breakbeat-driven nu-jungle between "Isometric" and "Space Traveler" is a masterclass in style and pace, and the same goes for the passage between the Axis-style techno of "Wild Sequence 2" and the deeper, more magnetic hypnosis of "Loader's Number". What an outstanding LP from the veteran!

Review: Here we have some recent recordings from veteran Detroit electro heroes Aux 88. Traditional electro is typically the order of the day here which, when produced with such aplomb as is here, not necessarily a bad thing. "Pocket Radio" is clearly indebted to Kraftwerk, with Autobahn-esque rolling bleeps that give way to a lovely and unexpected bassline halfway through. "Electro Slaves" is killer horror electro that could be Heinrich Muller at his finest as could be "If Am Was FM". Lastly, "Lock Groove", updates the sound somewhat with breakbeats and acidic squelches.

Review: Originally released back in 1997, Slipotika remains DJ Slip's finest hour. Although the underground US producer has recently resurfaced on Brooklyn imprint Thema, this release shows why he became so well regarded. From the slamming, raw looped techno of "Broken Cake" - a visceral reminder of how vital this approach could sound - to the stripped back minimalism of "Railyard Sunset" and the wiry, glitchy electro of "Spice" and "Change Your Head", with their echoing drums, into the deep and eerie techno groove of "Streetwalker", this collection has not lost any of its vitality. It also provides a vital snapshot of the American electronic music underground during the 90s.

Review: You have to admire Mono Junk's longevity. The Finnish producer released his first 12" way back in 1992, and has barely stopped putting out material since. Following excursions on Skudge White, Forbidden Planet and his own Dum Records last year, he begins 2016 by delivering four chunks of "techno melancholia" for Uncanny Valley offshoot Ratlife. Choose between the throbbing, new wave-influenced pulse of "Can't Understand", the triple-time, analogue techno-glam of "Leave This Feeling", the icy chords, gothic attitude and Visage influences of "Panic Of The Disco Fan", and the woozy, off-kilter electro/techno hybrid "State of Funk". All four tracks come blessed with the producer's own half-whispered vocals, which Uncanny Valley has described as "morbid thoughts".

Review: Rotterdam's emergent Electronic Emergencies continues to be a label that rewards the electro fan; ushering in a new album from Dutch wave icon Das Ding for their first release, EE went on to provide a platform for the unheralded SOS and now they welcome Visonia. Nicolas Estany's project has previously impressed on Last Known Trajectory and Lux Rec and the Chilean's romantic vision of electro feels quite at home on Electronic Emergencies. The five tracks on Nausicaa might be his most accomplished set yet, and in "The Moon Doesn't Want to Look at You" possesses a lead track that will grip your attention. The two A-side tracks will lighten up any dancefloor whilst the B-side finds Estany veering off into more introspective territory before ending on a hopeful note with the glistening title track.
