Review: Some 25 years after delivering his debut 12", Richard D James hasn't lost the ability to thrill or inspire. By his obtuse standards, the material that makes up the surprise Cheetah EP is actually rather laidback and melodious. "Cheetah2 (LD Spectrum)", for example, sounds like a slow house jam written by robots, while the even deeper "Cheetah7B" shuffles along in a metronomic fashion, seemingly oblivious to the increasingly aggressive World at large. Of course, those trademark skittish IDM rhythms are present and the Cornishman has thrown in a couple of hazy ambient cuts for good measure

Music For Two Kalimbas - (5:39) 65 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
from $1.97
Review: The title track on Randomer's first release for Dekmantel is deceptive. Although the rhythm flails and rolls with the UK producer's usual sense of urgency, it is swathed in misty, hazy melodies. There is no such ambiguity on "My Ears Hurt"; earning its place on the label's UFO Series, the arrangement features a rhythm that weaves its way in and out of a myriad of tonal blips and bleeps. In contrast, "Rendell Pips" and "Music for Two Kalimbas" are powerful DJ cuts. In the absence of any unusual sideways turns, Randomer relies on tight drums, rolling rhythms and plunging breakdowns to lead the listener down the wormhole.

Review: Tronik Youth's London based tech house and nu-disco force Nein is back with a weighty 17-trackcompilation celebrating his current label roster and a love for more retro-inspired sounds. From the grinding electro-punk of Justine's "Infernale Cavale", to Freudenthal's dark synthpop epic "Bilderblast", there's plenty of stylistic range here. Highlights come thick and fast on Yes Means Nein, with the gutsy EBM groove of Tunnel Signs "Hellfire" and a remix of Emperor Machine's "Sisco Seeker" from label mainstay Rodion and Fabrizio Mammarella particularly standing out!

Review: Que sonzeira! This is Gilles Peterson's most ambitious project to date... Last year he shipped himself and various key creative producers to Rio to build a document that celebrates every quarter of Brazil's broad sound by way of 18 original productions. Working the likes of Floating Points, members of 2 Banks Of 4 and local maestro Kassin, they sourced some the country's most authentic, exciting imaginative performers to create unique compositions that transcend any idea of homage to become their own entities that speak a universal groove language. The other-worldly rain forest flute-wheezing mists of "The Plum Blossom", the star-gazing lullaby harmonies of "Estrelar", the weeping chord phrases and soft whispers "City Saints", the scruffy dubby loops and percussive insistency of "Where Nana Hides"... While most Brazilian collections rehash or reboot the original source, this has created its very own. The fact it's the first release on Talkin Loud in over 10 years makes it even more special.

Review: Off! This Kill The DJ label just keeps on hitting new grounds, and this new collab between Car and Red Axes is further proof of just how exciting this collective really is. Car has already featured prominently for the label, but Red Axes has been churning out beast after beast for labels like ESP Institute, Hivern Discs and many others of the same calibre. Although we have labelled this as cold wave, because is does indeed transpire feelings of chilly melancholia, the EP is basically a collection of mindful techno tunes for the more explorative of DJ's. From "Incognito" through to "2040", there is a feeling of pensiveness and true romanticism, the sort you don't often hear anymore and one that we're always on the hunt for. A heavy artillery of remixes come demo Il Est Vilaine, and Tom Furse with two mighty versions. TIP!!!

Review: We often forget that the 2nd Drop imprint has been as important to dubstep and contemporary bass music as other more above-radar labels like Tempa or Hessle Audio. They've been going string since the noughties, and plenty of well-respects artists have passed through with their own low frequencies. London's DJRUM has been a mascot of some sort for the label, choosing to release all of his work though 2nd Drop. He's back with another four slices of daring, cutting-edge bass experimentation, and "Forgetting" is suitably broken-down and off the beaten track; "Projection" steers completely clear of beats or bass and instead delivers a fine, piano-led ambient sketch. "Induction" is a minimalistic sort of jungle with plenty of cosmic sonic flair, while "Forgetting Coda" once again steps into the realm of piano solos and acoustic improvisation. A different, refreshing take on their bass heritage.

Review: The latest release on Hamburg label Dial is the debut album from Misanthrope CA, a new project initiated by co-founder David 'Carsten Jost' Lieske in conjunction with artist and photographer Robert Kulisek. The pair graduate to Dial after first introducing the black metal-influenced endeavour on a limited tape last year, and Deathbridge makes for a compelling addition to the label's recent catalogue. Imagine the sonic crawlspace between The Caretaker, Tryptych-era Demdike Stare and Tropic Of Cancer and you are in the right frame of mind for this crepuscular ten track collection from Misanthrope CA.

Review: There's no doubt that Berliner's Max Graef and Glenn Astro are some of the biggest success stories to emerge from the deep house sound and creating their own signature style that's often copied of late, but seldom ever matched! Sure, the dusty hip-hop inspired jams are no doubt indebted to Detroit legends such as Theo Parrish or Andres but they've certainly put their own slant on it and created a new sound for the German capital to be synonymous with. Testament to their success is this LP for the legendary Ninja Tune; The Yard Work Simulator. Nearly a dozen tracks of chilled, sampledelic, MPC driven dope jams that are the perfect soundtrack for a misspent youth in Berlin this Summer. In particular check the raggedy junkyard joint that is "Where Fuck Are My Hard Boiled Eggs" or the psychedelic urban soul jam that is the title track.

Review: Lovefingers seems to be struggling a little with what to write on ESP Institute's distinct centre labels. For this Juan Ramos 12" - the producer's first for the New York based imprint - he's posed a question: "what colour Speedo should she wear this summer?" By the sounds of the fuzzy, broken beats, popping electronics, tribal percussion hits, drunken melodies and stretched out chords that mark out "Last Of The Natives", we'd suggest a rich shade of green. That said, if you also take the woozy, intense and cluttered - but nevertheless impressive - flipside "Enemy Of Enemy" is friend into consideration, dark brown might be a better option.

Review: The latest addition to the Sonic Groove roster is UNC, a producer from Italy. He opens his account on the US label with "Shesha", a spellbindingly hypnotic techno groove, which sounds like it was recorded at 20,000 leagues beneath the sea. By contrast, "Xellerate" is a densely tangled web of broken beats that is too abstract to work on the dance floor. "Anarchemy" sees UNC back in club mode with its dense, slamming beats and thundering, stepping rhythm hitting the listener like a breezeblock in the face. Finally, there's "Sanskrit Vinyasa"; with its nagging, insistent percussion and snaking bass, it is UNC's most subtle and sophisticated production so far.

Review: Donato Dozzy has long been one of techno's most inventive and singularly minded talents. Even so, this latest full-length - his first since 2013 - is pretty conceptual. There's something more than a little Matthew Herbert-esque about Dozzy's desire to create an entire album out of the near operatic vocals of Rome-based singer Anna Caragnano. Using nothing but her voice - harmonies, solos, grunts, whispers, speech and dreamy freestyle passages - and a swathe of sound effects, Dozzy creates a rich, evocative, often spine-tingling range of largely ambient, otherworldly tracks. There are occasional rhythmic passages, of course - see "Festa (A Mattola)" in particular - but for the most part the Italian producer concentrates on textures and atmospheres. The results are rarely less than beguiling.

Review: It seems DJ Deep and Roman Poncet are simply unstoppable at the moment. The former being a legend of the Paris music scene for nearly two decades, the latter fast making a name for himself in recent times with releases on Figure, Tresor and of course DJ Deep's own Deeply Rooted. Not content just joining forces on The Adventist project, they now present us with Sergie Rezza, exploring an eclectic array of styles incredibly well. Anyone lucky enough to catch these tracks played live at Berlin Atonal 2015 will know what we mean. There's the gorgeously aquatic bliss of "More Basile" and "Wof" through to the uplifting deep house of "Reborn Sounds Of Childhood" and the African tribal drumming of "Toucan". Don't worry, there's some great techno on here too, such as the all immersive "Mask" and the brilliantly hypnotic 13 minute epic that is "Trial Of The Lake".

Review: Earlier this year, Red Light Radio founder Orpheu de Jong stumbled across a cassette, originally self-released in 1984, from an unknown San Francisco musician called Joel Graham. On the strength of the two tracks showcased here, it would be fair to say that Graham was ahead of his time. Hypnotic and minimalist in the extreme, the drum machine and synthesizer workout "Geomancy" - apparently recorded in 1982 on pre-midi analogue equipment - sounds like a template for techno. B-side "Night" is similarly inspired, and bears an uncanny resemblance to pitched-down versions of some of the dreamy new age house and nu-Balearica currently doing the rounds. It's superb, and almost as good as the brilliant A-side. Another superb release from the guys at Music From Memory.

Review: Rabit's debut on the excellent Tri Angle label out of the US was obviously received with high interest, because he's returned to the imprint with a solid new LP that further demonstrates his explorative, daring sound structures. The mood on this is probably best characterised as 'electronica', but we don't like that term seeing as this LP is so much more than that. Mixing up ambient and broken beats in tunes like "Advent", "Snow Leopard", and "Fetal", this is a listening experience with a sensitivity to the dance. In fact, we can already imagine the bedroom DJ's swinging this stuff out and nodding their heads up and down in dark corners. If you're a fan of Deep Medi, and the darker, more entrenched side of dubstep, you should definitely give this a listen. Quality sonics from start to finish.

Review: Ever a duo of fine taste, Mobb Deep have sampled many a musical gem. There's too many collected here to name them all (25 in total) but some of the album's many highlights include Giorgio Moroder's snowblind and slick Scarface disco on "Tony's Theme", the cavernous '70s funk rock of "Dirty Feet" (as famously pinched for "Shook Ones Pt II"), another "Cavern" this time Liquid Liquid's punk-funk masterpiece, and the hysterical intimacy overload of Prince's "If I Was Your Girlfriend".

Review: Strut's recent foray into the world of industrial, EBM and new-wave with Trevor Jackson's superb Metal Dance compilation (the follow-up to which is due in September) has clearly given them a passion for the subject. Here, they allow Walls guitarist/producer Alessio Natalizia to curate a two-disc wander through Italy's hitherto under-explored 1980s new wave scene. It's a bit of an eye-opener, if truth be told, full of cold-wave, synth-wave and electronic oddities. Given the quality of the material, you don't have to look far for gems; check, for example, the discordant, dubwise oddness of 2+2=5's "Jacho's Story", the droning synths and backwards tape loops of L'Ultimo Arcano's bizarre "1984-85" and the wide-eyed bliss of ATROX's "Against The Odds". And that's just for starters. Stunning stuff, as usual.

Review: Emotional Especial return with a release from Romanian duo Khidja that comes packing some excellent remixes from senor Fairplay and Juju & Jordash! Brought to the attention of EE thanks to Hardway Brother Sean Johnston, who returned from a Bucharest DJ gig singing the praises of two young DJs, Khidja's productions are as impressive as their selections on the evidence here. "Mustafa" is more immediate with shuffle percussion, swirling sirens and acid bubbles leading to a perfect horn break. In the hands of Mr Fairplay, the track takes on anthemic qualities; the stabbing bass and build have allegedly seen howls of appreciation when it's dropped at A Love From Outer Space. "Abdul" finds Khidja in a more calming mood reminiscent of Art of Noise, though the kick and bass ensure there is plenty of rhythmic emphasis, whilst the Juju & Jordash remix edges towards a Balearic digidub vibe.

Review: Trust Maurice Fulton to surprise us. Having seemingly abandoned his Syclops pseudonym following the critical and commercial success of the superb 2008 full-length, I've Got My Eye On You, he's resurrected it for a surprise sophomore album. Predictably, A Blink of An Eye is a bit good. Picking up where the previous album left off, it delivers a warped fusion of titanium-plated electronics, leftfield acid jack, freestyle jazz flourishes and intergalactic mutant disco. Formidably twisted but hugely enjoyable, it gleefully charges off in many different directions, mixing shirts-off anthems (see the brilliant "Sarah's E with Extra P"), with curious percussion jams (the afro-centric "Jump Bugs") and curiously blissful, Boof-ish excursions ("5 In"). Stellar stuff.

Review: Drawing on the usual combination of close associates and fresh talent, Modeselektor are plaing curators once again and serve us this hefty 18-strong collection of shockingly modern beats. There's rugged and ranging electronica from Clark, Prefuse 73 and Mouse On Mars, while Modeselektor themselves keep things decidedly techno. By and large though the strongest informer is electro, from Lazer Sword's manic delivery to the deadly Detroitisms of Diamond Version. A special mention goes out to Martyn for the swinging glory of "Red Dancers", a rough and ready jacker with bandy legs and bawdy acid in its veins.

Review: German veteran Roman Flugel's debut album under his given name, 2011's Fatty Folders, was something of a surprise package - a collection of warm, playful and melodious tracks that belied his reputation for hypnotic techno and eccentric deep house. This follow-up retains that playfulness - not to mention a curious pop sensibility with regards to tunefulness - but douses it in the clanking rhythms of machine drums and industrial strength electronics. The production is still pleasingly finessed, but there's also a pleasingly raw feel to his blends of IDM, deep house, deep techno, electronica and classic Kraftwerk (see the standout "Wilkie"). Happiness is Happening also impressively plays around with mood and tempo, with wholeheartedly positive results.

Review: The original enfant terrible of the bass music world is back with a new album, marking his second long player for 4AD with a sprawling opus of more than 30 skits and skirmishes daubed in his trademark colourful sonic scrawl. There is plenty here that reminds you of the early days of the producer's emergence when dubstep was a younger beast, from the spacious "Horrid" to the measured arpeggios of "Pray For Me", but you'll also find more intricate musings such as the dynamic and dramatic "Memories". Hype abounds on the creepy Funky of "VI-XI", while "Overdose" launches enthusiastically into a jungle tear out. At any given turn, you'll find yourself surprised, lurched from a serene mood into a manic one, only to be tempered again. There's a staggering range of ideas and styles to comprehend here, but would you want it any other way from one of electronic music's most outspoken upstarts?

Review: You can count on Honest Jon's to provide the more provocative electronic release around, but we weren't expecting this new EP at all. A collaboration between Shackleton and Ernesto Tomasini was simply too much to envisage: the former is one of the few true pioneers of UK dance music and the latter is an ex-Cabaret dancer who delves in post-industrialism. There are four segments and, thanks to Tomasini's voice, Shackleton's music is transformed and teleported onto new territories, sounding something like a space dance from a long, long time ago. HJ themselves describe this as Shackleton's 'most hallucinatory music to date' and that may well be, but what is certain is that it's very much different from all the other gear he's put out. Recommended.

Review: Some years back, Aleksi Perala joined forces with Rephlex co-founder Grant Wilson-Claridge to invent a custom musical scale, The Colundi Sequence, which boasts 128 frequencies "chosen via experimentation and philosophy". Perala has been using this as the basis of his attractive electronic work for some time, self-releasing 15 EPs of tracks since 2014. This epic, triple-vinyl album gathers together highlights from the previously download-only series - all with deliberately obtuse titles, made up of letters and numbers - and accurately showcases the depth and diversity of Perala's work. Clone is calling it "spiritual techno", and that's an excellent catch-all description for a set that variously touches on Motor City futurism, IDM, electro, dub techno, ambient and Rephlex-esque "braindance".

Review: Minimal Wave sister label Cititrax have been teasing fans with the prospect of a Further Reductions album from Shawn O'Sullivan and Katie Rose and the six tracks on Woodwork more than live up to expectations! Although O'Sullivan will be known to most for his industrial leaning techno productions for labels like Avian, L.I.E.S. and The Corner, the Further Reductions collaboration with Katie Rose dates back as far as 2008, formed to explore a vocal-led, contemporary take on the minimal wave sound. According to Cititrax, Woodwork combines the influences of classic techno and early house to create "super lush and atmospheric tracks that work both on and off the dance floor." There's something XTRMNTR era Primal Scream about "High End Basics" whilst "Void Of Course" sounds like gloopy acid house slowed down to a deathly crawl, the rest you should experience for yourself!
