Review: The first compilation on Koze's Pampa label is a lovingly curated affair. It starts with the left field house of Herbert's take on Lianne La Havas and Ada's r&b-infused "You & Me", as well as DJ Koze's own hymnal take on Roman Flugel's "9 Years". Other Pampa regulars like Axel Boman are well represented and he provides the ultra-mellow "In The Dust of This Planet". Equally though, Koze also provides a platform for newcomers to the fold. There's the utterly bizarre, glitch-hop of Nasrawi and Funskstorung's contributions, and at the other end of the spectrum, wide-eyed deep house from Mount Kimbie and Jamie xx & Kosi Kos' pumping indie-dance "Come We Go".

Review: Robert Hood's second album as Floorplan sees him hone in on disco, gospel and house influences to create a proper big room collection. As the driving, disco-loop heavy "Spin" and the ridiculously catchy "Music" demonstrate, the Detroit producer has stripped Floorplan of its techno influences. However, this does't mean he has simplified his message; accompanying the religious vocals on "The Heavens & The Earth" is a hypnotic organ riff, the slightly less pious "Good Thang" is a riotous siren-heavy jacker in the Reese tradition, and "He Can Save You", with its dense primal rhythm is reminiscent of Green Velvet as his madcap best. Hood may have chosen God, gospel and disco over the minimal nation, but he still knows how to lead his people onto the dancefloor.

Review: On German producer and Aleph label founder Aera's latest release, the coalescing of influences from the past forty years of electronic music is audible. From the early electronic-style noises that warble over the bubbly acid pulse on the title track to the deeper than deep house of "Krystal Close" and the Mathew Jonson-sounding micro-trance melodies of "Keeping the Book", Running Hot is nothing if not adventurous and diverse. Innervisions also deserves praise for its choice of remixer; Steve Rachmad is not the most immediate name one would associate with the German label, but he does a fine job here, turning "Keeping the Book" into a deep, pulsing techno track, accentuating the original version's beautiful spacey-ness.

Review: After a series of EPs for Get Physical, German DJ / producer Emanuel Satie turns his hand to
reworking some remixes on the renowned label. He turns the Coyu take on Smash TV's "Mathew Pervert" into a bleepy, jittery acid house number, while his rework of the MANDY remix of Roland Leesker's "My Warehouse" is an extended, pulsing groove, featuring pitch-bent vocals. The compilation also shines a light on some excellent remixes from other artists. Most notably, Tuff City Kids' take on Roach Motel's "The Night" is a thing of beauty, with the pair retaining the originalism classic swing and seductive flutes, adding in some tasteful keys.

Review: Luke Vibert donned the Kerrier District moniker last year on the tremendous Kerrier District 4 album on Hypercolour, and here are the remixes. He's done alright; look at who he's got on board. First there's the Ricardo Villalobos & Max Loderbauer remix of "Sexspurt", which is long and as liquid and tripped out as you'd imagine. Bulgarian hardware maverick delivers the goods always on his funky, fierce and soulful rendition of "Techno Disco", it's quite brilliant actually. Finally the now legendary Rene Pavlowitz dons the Head High alter ego for a slamming warehouse rave makeover of "Come On Kerrier".

Review: Berlin's Toy Tonics are back with London's Lancelot, who is really on a roll at the moment having appeared on the likes of Freerange, W&O Street Tracks and Arjunadeep to name a few. "7am In The Afternoon" is a tough and dusty serving of deep house with a generous splash of 303 aid squelch. "Again And Again" is smooth and emotive deep house of the techy tip which has deserved him an upcoming release on Freerange while "Lorikeets" goes for some stomping tech house flavour more suited to energized dancefloor moments.

Review: Italian electro-pop freaks Crookers are back! They make deep house these days and don't do too badly at it. "Beautiful" features a bossa-jazz flavour over its woozy esoteric beats. "Dub Side 3" is more direct like the name would suggest on this dark and low slung journey track that will appeal to Crosstown Rebels fans. Elsewhere there's a couple more remixes of "Beautiful" which are equally impressive but for our money it's all about Kry Wolf's druggy, party-starting tech house makeover which will get the adrenalin levels peaking with its tough beat, funky bassline and trippy elements all working in harmony.

Review: Hamburg house hero Solomun presents a couple of dozen remixes compiled between 2009 - 2015 and he's definitely been a busy guy between running the Diynamic label and being quite amusing on Boiler Room Tulum. He takes his deft hand to remixes for pop acts such as Lana Del Rey's "West Coast", Foals "Late Night" and Editors "Our Love" through to Hamburg locals Kollektiv Turmstasse's Berlin legend Paul Kalkbrenner's "Cloudrider" and Tiga & Audion's killer "Let's Go Dancing". And yes his remix of Noir & Haze's "Around" does indeed makes an appearance as well.

Review: Salsa was the first time that the world heard of Sven Vath and now on the 30th anniversary of its original release the Frankfurt DJ's label has reissued this mid-80s classic. Henrik Schwarz provides three reshapes; the first dub take fuses the original's quasi-mysterious synths and Vath's deadpan vocals with a snaking groove while his alternate remix is more electronic sounding and focuses on the Cocoon boss' rapping. There's also a radio edit from Schwarz which is led by a rolling steely rhythm and has a menacing EBM undercurrent. Roman Flugel's take is far slower and deeper. like one of his own acid house tracks pitched right down. And then there's the original - still a timeless paean to the mid 80s period when synth pop and proto-techno coalesced.

Review: Marc Romboy's esteemed tech house imprint has reached its 77th release? You bet! And it goes out all guns blazing this time around with a massive compilation with some great tracks, new and old, by the likes of Robert Babicz, Guy Mantzur, Wehbba and Stephan Bodzin. There are some pretty kick ass remixes on offer too by the likes of Adam Port, Adriatique, Nick Curly and Petar Dundov. Highlights? Head honcho Romboy's rendition of OCH's "Time Tourism", Ibadan boss Jerome Sydenham's ecstatic "Systematic Dub" and Technasia's druggy and tunnelling odyssey "Hold Me".

Review: Juan Miguel Bassols first pricked our consciousness way back in 2012, when he delivered a fine debut under the JMII moniker on 100% Silk. He's not released all that much since, making this first appearance on Hivern Discs his highest profile EP to date. There's naturally much to admire amongst the three original productions present, from the stripped-back but melodious acid house shuffle of "Thrills", to the wild lead lines and chugging bottom end of the analogue synth-heavy proto-house snap of "Tightbrass". Christian S provides two tasty reworks of that cut, including a dark and seductive "Angry Dub". A woozy, dreamier John Talabot re-edit of "Thrills" completes an excellent package.

Review: To mark the twentieth anniversary of the foundation of his label, James Ruskin has put together this massive compilation. It includes long-term friends and associates of the label - like Oliver Ho, Regis and Luke Slater - as well as newer additions to the roster, including Lakker and Rommek. Apart from uniting artists from different generations, the compilation also showcases the label's various hues; from the broken beats and intricate rhythms of Ruskin and Regis' O/V/R project and the hypnotic soundscapes of Lakker's "Orange" to the trace stabs and 10 tonne kicks of Regis' "Party Spoiler Too" and the chaotic industrial rhythms on Truss' "Wanastow", this compilation offers to newcomers an invaluable introduction to Blueprint, or to long-standing fans an indispensable reminder of why the label is unique.

Review: This is Chymera's second EP in 2016, and follows a relatively fallow period in the last few preceding years. That said, Episode shows that the Irish producer has not lost his melodic touch. The title track sees emotive melodies surge up over a rolling rhythm and robust kicks, while on "7 Hours", he reverts to a more earthy approach. Despite this, the arranging is superb, with resonating beats and nagging percussion supporting a surging bass and warm acid lines. Finally, there's "Rust"; with its breath-taking synth drops and powerful bass tones, it brings to a close another majestic, melodic release from this talented, idiosyncratic producer.

Review: Hamburg's Diynamic are back with some pretty fierce tracks on Four To The Floor 06, quite a departure from the label's usual deep house sound. Pig&Dan's "Growler" is a storming peak time techno weapon with a furious beat, slamming synth stabs and a big drop: all you need really. Israeli progressive house hero Guy Mantzur appears too with "Trees Of Eden" which goes more for the Life & Death style moody and melodic journey track style. Brazil's ANNA serves up a driving, tunnelling and restrained groove on cruise control with "Odd Concept" while Jonas Rathsman serves up one of the most epic arpeggiations of the year on his monster "Cobalt".

Review: Following on from releases from cosmic disco legend Danielle Baldelli, the latest EP on Nein comes from its owner, Tronik Youth. The title track is an infectious electronic disco groove with hints of muffled new wave vocals and an industrial rigidity to it. "Never Said, I Never Said" is slower and more pared back, as a droning groove and soaring synths crackle with electric energy. Nein has commissioned two producers to remix its boss; the first sees Cabaret Nocturne re-imagine "Never Said, I Never Said" as a sinister, stepping disco groove, while Jonathan Kusuma turns the title track into a hypnotic, sleek techno pulse.

Review: Amsterdam-based Italian Marco Antonio Spaventi has been one of M>O>S Recordings' most reliable artists over the last three years, delivering a string of fine 12" singles for the acclaimed label. It's perhaps fitting, then, that his latest album - the Rome-born analogue obsessive's second in total - should come out on the Dutch imprint. Predictably, it's a hugely enjoyable set, with Spaventi utilizing a range of vintage synthesizers and drum machines on a series of explorations of classic deep house, Motor City techno, and the grey areas in between. Highlights include, but are not limited to, the deep space shuffle of "Luna Piena", the rising, piano-laden snappiness of "Titanic Moments", and the deep house/techno fusion of the wonderfully warm and hazy "Missing Sunlight".

Review: Last year's Youth Stand Up! album, created through collaboration between leading lights of Glasgow's leftfield club scene and youth music projects in Ghana and Belize, was one of the most interesting and vibrant cultural fusions of our time. This follow-up release contains fresh reworks of tracks from that set. First, Optimo man JD Twitch delivers a bewitching, sub-heavy take on "Come With Me", before Auntie Flo turns "Beat The Drum" into a sweaty, stretched-out chunk of analogue/tropical fusion. Midland delivers a fantastically percussive, off-beat acid-meets-Afro-techno rendition of "Tsoma", whilst General Ludd turn in a sparse, Afro-acid re-make of "Tuteme Meets Tafo Antome At 58 Ft".

Amandi Tereo (orig) - (4:30) 100 BPM

Review: Here, old friends and regular studio partners Marco Dionigi and Danielle Baldelli once again join forces to deliver some distinctly Italian dancefloor thrills. While the duo's cosmic roots shine through on the druggy, synth-heavy pulse of "I Can't Escape From You", and pitched-down, Clavinet-heavy Afro-cosmic trip "Amandi Tereo", it's the most obviously disco-centric "Sit Back" that really sets the pulse racing. The EP-opening "Funky Mix" is particularly good, and focuses the action on "Superstition"-style jammed-out clav riffs, sparse drum machine percussion, and some deliciously hazy effects. In contrast, the "Dark Mix" is more obviously electronic, with winding top lines wrapping themselves around the duo's bubbly beats.

Review: Gerd Janson's Running back taps into some local talent courtesy of Stuttgart DJ / producer Konstantin Sibold. The title track is a classic slice of German techno; it has shades of early Force Inc thanks to its tranced out chords and pace - cruising along just below 130bpm for its ten-minute duration - and the raw energy of Tresor in the shape of its gnarly acid line. The musical elements sound much more pronounced on the beatless version, with the chords assuming a slightly menacing edge. However, this is really all about the original version, a tripped out, hypnotic that digs deep into the German electronic music psyche.

Review: Little did we know that the excellent Freerange label were cooking up a follow-up EP by Clavis, the production duo consisting of Manuel Tur and Adrian Hoffmann, who deal in a very specific brand of techy house. Much like their debut EP for the label, "Alcine" rolls its pseudo tribal drums at a steady pace among dissolving melodies, and "Mangogul's Dream" offers a similar yet even more minimalistic take on the genre. The dub version of the latter is what really gets our juices flowing, though, because we're deeply into that swollen bass and well-rounded beats...not to mention that echoing cascade of percussion that spills so well over the tough groove.

Review: One third of Innervisions, one half of Ame and The Howling and one of the all round modern greats of techno and house music. Under his own name for the first time, Frank Wiedemann unleashes more sure-fire and emotive dancefloor intelligence on The Moorthon EP. Starting out with the soulful tech house bounce of "Moorthon II" he gets more on the vibe you know him for ie: moody and epic with "Kleiner Vogel" with its dark strings, wonky synth leads and adrenalised rhythm. But he saves the best for last on the bittersweet techno-soul of "Moorthon I" featuring some immaculate programming and truly stunning synth textures from a true master of the sound.

Review: It's hard to believe that this is DJ Deep's debut on Rekids as the French spinner has been such an integral part of that grey area where house and techno coalesce for a number of decades. In any event, it sounds like he is making up for lost time; working together with Traumer, the owner of the Gettraum label, he delivers the monumental title track. In its La Deep version, the stepping rhythm supports a screeching diva vocal, while the La Slave version strips the arrangement back to focus in jittery drums and rolling percussion. Finally, there's straighter La Spicy take, which has a straight groove and the dense, tracts of percussion that one has come to expect from Rekids.

Review: For those of you who can't make it, you can still enjoy these very tracks that will be thrashed on San Francisco institution Dirtybird's US tour this summer. This is the third edition of their Summer BBQ compilation titled Secret Sauce and it features an all-star cast. Starting things off in spectacular fashion with Chicago house legend Marshall Jefferson teaming up with L.A's Doorly on the wicked "Neanderthal', there's the wonky, bassbin rattling deepness of label mainstay Christian Martin (with Ardalan) on "Flight of The Pterodactyl" and rising star Justin Jay's pop-inflected epic "Broke The Law" featuring a bit of help from mates Sascha Robotti, Henry Was and vocals by Josh Taylor.

Review: The man Wolfgang Voight provided some inventive and pioneering techno under his Wassermann guise, one of many. "W.I.R." was released in 2000 and was a driving serving of pop-inflected techno. Frankfurt techno legend Sven Vath also stepped in, assisted by Roman Flugel, to deliver a grinding industrial techno remix that these days could easily be compared to the work of Ancient Methods. Kompakt Records alumni Tobias Thomas and Michael Mayer's remix however is by far the best and encapsulated the label's timeless aesthetic on this wonderful excursion through emotive and ethereal house sounds.

Review: Originally released back in 2011, these collaborative tracks between Dubfire and Oliver Huntemann now get reworked. Joseph Capriati, one of the fast rising names in the minimal techno scene, has been tasked with reworking "Terra". Listening to the Italian DJ's rolling groove, tough beats and insistent stabs, it's not hard to hear why Capriati commands such a following. The other Dubfire & Huntemann track to get remixed is "Fuego", with Julien Jeweil on remix duties. The French producer uses a similar rolling groove but uses tight Chicago claps, a squelchy bass and some wild siren riffs to create an inventive new spin on minimal house.
