Review: A rather underrated cornerstone of the the UK's nebulous bass and techno scenes for more than half a decade, Untold ushers in a debut album in the shape of Black Light Spiral and boy does it pack a punch. If you caught any of the online previews that have surfaced in the period preceding it's release, you will have some idea of what to expect but the Hemlock boss has genuinely delivered one of this year's most impressive albums thus far. The foreboding sirens of opening track "5 Wheels" set the tone for an album that delivers on Untold's mission to keep the people up and at it with rough tough music while confounding them with brilliantly executed improbabilities.

Punters Step Out by Joe on Hemlock Recordings Cue Track
Club Scared - (5:42) 138 BPM
from $2.53
Played by: Christian S
Review: Hemlock amusingly describes this latest batch of Joe greatness as "two highly spirited but deceptively strong sonic cocktails" yet even those familiar with the unassuming producer's previous work on Untold's label and Hessle will be knocked sideways. The title cut from Punters Step Out effortlessly demonstrates Joe's capacity for embracing and channelling weirdness is matched by few of his contemporaries; the track's defining drunken Hammond is warped to an insane degree and smelted to a ruff edged drum lick that will cause all manner of chaos down the dancehall. There's also the similarly great "Club Scared", which seems to be an all too appropriate commentary on people ripping off the likes of Blawan et al. With this and the recent Hessle drop, Joe might just have shut down 2013.

Curtains - (4:41) 113 BPM
from $2.53
Review: After a couple of appearances last year Randomer looks to be becoming something of a regular fixture on Untold's Hemlock imprint, returning to the fray with two varying takes on techno as seen through the mixed up eyes of the modern electronic music producer. "Bring" comes on in stripped down tones, the sparse kick n' snare beat providing rigidity where the woozy lead synth is unable to, while the atmosphere remains resoundingly bleak throughout. "Curtains" opts for a more adventurous approach, riding a slow-chugging thump of industrial design and letting troubled patterns of amelodic synth mess come out chattering over the top.

Hex by Pangaea on Hemlock Recordings Cue Track
Fatalist - (4:24)
from $2.53
Review: Pangaea is perhaps the least feted of the Hessle Audio triumvate, given Ben UFO's status as one of the best selectors in the game and David Kennedy's all conquering cross label endeavours. That's no smear on his talent at production however, which most recently saw him contribute a highlight of that excellent Hessle compilation 116 & Rising. Further attempts to redress the balance in his favour are most certainly successful on this, his debut on Untold's Hemlock imprint with two jerking darkside manoeuvres. Described to a tee as the "spirit of 92? via Plastic People", lead track "Hex" burrows a similar path to "Runout", Pangaea's contribution to the aforementioned Hessle compilation. Its release will no doubt please attentive listeners of Rinse FM as it's been soundtracking many a show in recent months. "Fatalist" screwballs even further into rave dementia, as cockney gasps of "Alright? Listen. Listen. Listen" preface the descent into abrasive tones and jerkily nervous percussion.

Change In A Dynamic Environment EP 1 by Untold on Hemlock Recordings Cue Track
Luminous - (7:46)
from $2.53
Review: In a recent interview, Jack Dunning suggested he was "just another dubstep producer washing up on techno's beach in 2012". In many ways this is unfair to his unique production style, which arguably has always had more in common with techno than many of his contemporaries - developing on a course outside of either genre over the past four years, culminating in the release of Little Things Like That on Clone's Basement Series last November. On listening to Change In A Dynamic Environment EP 1, it's clear that Little Things Like That was something of a transitional record, though perhaps not quite in the way that many expected. While both its tracks hammered forward with all the power of a horse bolting from the Fachwerk stable, the vacuum-like bass throb which is Dunning's most distinct sonic trademark was always pulling in the opposite direction, largely justifying the tag of bass over techno, and it's in this manner that many expected him to continue, applying his tried and trusted sounds to more regular drum patterns. This approach on both tracks flips Dunning's usual formula on its head, largely removing the heavily bottom-ended element of his sound, resulting in something that isn't rude club tackle but altogether more contemplative. Whether this is end of the Untold we knew him will no doubt be revealed with EPs 2 and 3.

Get Yourself Together - (3:54)
from $2.53
Review: Randomer's "Real Talk" was one of the highlights of the Numbers output last year, a gleefully chunky piece of bass-heavy techno that rightfully raised the producer's stock to the level of his peers such as Blawan. This new release for Untold's Hemlock Recordings shows that "Real Talk" was no one-off, delivering two tracks that punch even harder than before. "Scruff Box" utilises beefed up, lo-fi 808 drums whilst 80s electro samples give the track some brash swing - in the hands of any other producer the results could be terrible, but in his hands it's the sound of being hit in the face with a bag of rocks. "Get Yourself Together" meanwhile combines detuned piano and string stabs with clattering hi-hats and a white-hot bassline. Despite the schlock horror feel of the samples, the results have the required kick - and most importantly the required charm - to make this another winning release for the producer.

Review: To celebrate four years of releases, Hemlock, the label run by Untold and Jack Dunning presents Chapter One, a collection of label highlights and unreleased exclusives. Moving through the glittery funk-leaning post-dubstep of Fantastic Mr Fox, Mount Kimbie and James Blake, through techno contributions from Sei A, Randomer and Guy Andrews, and bass hybrids from Pangaea and Joe, the selections on offer demonstrate why Hemlock has been ahead of the game since its inception. As well as the individual tracks, a continuous mix is also on offer, joining the dots between their diverse releases with style.

This Train by Randomer on Hemlock Recordings Cue Track
Randomer - "This Train" - (6:18)
from $2.53
Review: The third single of Chapter One exclusives sees Hemlock regulars Joe and Randomer deliver two quite different takes on contemporary bass music. "R.E.J. Bit" is like a companion piece to his recent "MB" for the label, a jazzy piece of broken house interspersed with off-kilter sound effects. Randomer's "This Train" continues along the acid breakbeat house path he's been cultivating for the past year, combining clattering hi-hats, concrete drums and heaving bass in a chugging package that more than does justice to its name.

Review: It's four years since Hemlock, the label run by Untold and Andy Spencer, opened its doors, and the exclusive tracks featured on their retrospective mix CD find themselves getting released separately. The first sees two newcomers to the label: Sei A and FaltyDL. Sei A's presence makes total sense - the crunchy brand of metallic, futuristic big room techno he's been perfecting for three years is one that Untold has become increasingly drawn to, and "Hyphen" is no different, alternating between thin kick drums and breakbeat stomps, while atonal strings swell in the background. Recent Ninja Tune signee FaltyDL is a less expected inclusion, but the fractal vocals of "Artemis" are backed up with some truly hefty warehouse sized drums.

Review: Not content with one release on Untold's Hemlock imprint this year, Randomer returns with another three tracks of what the label describes as "deranged acid breakbeat music". "We Laugh, We Scream" sees an overdriven 303 stretched to its limits and concrete drums go up against a Dance Mania inspired vocal, while "Nar" adopts a more linear approach, combining a weighty industrial feel with chopped up strings and creaking bass. Finally, "Freak Dub" is described by the label as sounding like Dillinja making house music - something that sounds quite accurate in light of the track's stomach churning bass and metallic clatter.

Review: The seal on Hemlock's music is always one of quality, so when they welcome a relative newcomer into their fold, you know it must be something quite special. With a strong digital EP on Discobelle already under his belt, Guy Andrews has been known to those with their finger on the pulse of bass music for a few months now, but this release deserves to see his profile rise considerably; the 808s and woodblock percussion of "Shades" have the spectre of early jungle at its core, whilst maintaining a maturity and restraint that few of his peers doing similar things would be able to muster. "Textures" meanwhile is similarly masterful, skillfully moving from 4/4 techno to a funky-infused bass workout without breaking a sweat.

Blue Monday - (4:25) Biggest-selling track on this release
from $2.53
Review: The latest offering from the mighty Hemlock sees a new producer enter their stable: Toronto based Nautiluss, whose brooding take on garage provides a more than worthy addition to their catalogue. "Ultraviolet" is a collaboration between Bertie and former Simian and Black Ghosts vocalist Simon Lord under his Lord Skywave alias. As you'd expect from such a collaboration, it's undoubtedly one of the poppier things that Hemlock have released, as Lord's maudlin vocals float atop metronomic handclaps and symphonic pads not unlike something out of a 70s sci-fi soundtrack. Instrumental track "Bleu Monday" on the other hand is far more what you would expect from the label, as swampy bass sits underneath stuttering drums with definite garage leanings. It's nicely accented by a bright kwaito-style melody which rears up at the halfway point before the rhythm rolls into a cyclone at the end.

Review: James Blake wisely returns to square one with Hemlock for a new two-tracker. It's a pleasing sign that he's not ready to get swept away on his own hype, and sure enough the tracks are wonderfully strange and dark. "Order" is little more than dry percussion lolling over hissing, distended hats and drones. "Pan" is more rhythmic, sharpening the ideas within into a clearer sonic image. There's something of a melodic note, and something of a breakdown midway through, but really this is avant-garde. It's a sterling reminder that Blake is an incredibly adventurous artist still finding his way.

Tempest - (7:02) 136 BPM
from $2.53
Review: You can always rely on Ramadanman. The ever-prolific, highly renowned Hessle Audio favourite comes up trumps once again with this beautiful, soulful slice on Hemlock Recordings (the label co-owned by London based producer, Untold, which has seen such luminaries as James Blake, Pangaea and Fantastic Mr Fox pass through its forward thinking, open minded doors already). Inspiring, deeply moving and delicately articulated, "Glut" is possibly one of Ramadanman's most poignant and reflective works to date, with a wailing synth slowly dying and trailing out towards the end. "Tempest" may be familiar to those of you who heard Scuba's 'Sub:stance' mix from earlier on this year. The seven-minute contemplation is initiated by a simple rat-a-tat of wood on metal-sounding timbre. A defiant drum kick interrupts the blissed out subtle euphoria of the first section half way through, marking a movement towards a more punchy, bleepy second phase, yet strangely retaining the ambience that seems to consistently underpin Ramadanman's productions. It's tempestuous, but not entirely tempest-like (there's a distinction to be made here, somehow).

Review: Jack Dunning's audacious three part project reaches number 2, and while the first instalment may have been inspired by drum & bass (in spirit if not necessarily in sound), it seems as though this pair of tracks are more concerned with the aesthetic of early Detroit techno. The near industrial thud of "Caslon" utilises a simple monophonic sequence that slowly builds into a storm of raw square waves. "Breathe" meanwhile opts for a deeper approach which is one of the producer's most sedate works to date, utilising a swung rhythm that is as far from his traditional jackhammer approach as you could imagine, with a gentle bass accented with a Vangelis-like sci-fi soundscape. Highly recommended.

Overdrive - (4:55) 126 BPM

Review: Drum & bass, Detroit techno, and now...post-punk? It seems unlikely that anyone would have expected Untold to conclude his trilogy of EPs with two tracks that could have emerged out of the dancepunk boom of ten years ago, but if anything they just prove that the DNA of early 80s British guitar music runs deep enough to show its dominant traits once every few generations. Of course it's not a total departure - although "Kane" is characterised by its Gang of Four style bassline, aesthetically it's a fitting companion to the first EP's "Motion The Dance": dark, throbbing, and filled with malicious intent, it's offered an air of grandiose spectacle with its symphonic violin, peaking at its mid-point when an event horizon of waspish drones open up beneath the bassline and pulls everything in. "Overdrive" meanwhile takes a more explicitly industrial tack, as heavily distorted bass guitar licks are thrown into a cascading jumble of crunchy, organic beats.

Review: The second single EP of Chapter One exclusives sees Guy Andrews and Untold showcasing out their own unique brands of bass heavy techno. Andrews is no stranger to Untold's imprint, having released the excellent Shades/Textures on the label last year, though "Resistivity" treads a straighter path than those drum & bass inspired tracks, providing five minutes of searing, percussive 4/4 swathed in reverb with a noisy convergence of pulsating synth lines. Untold's "Under" sees the producer continue the work he started on his Change In A Dynamic Environment EPs, with stray sonar bleeps and a crackly aesthetic elevating a solid rhythm-based DJ tool into something with all the tension and drama of a classic DMZ track.

Sei A, one of the more surprising additions to the Hemlock roster, showcases his impeccable big room sensibilities with "Hyphen", while FaltyDL continues to purvey his heady New York shuffle on "Artemis". Two remixes of label co-chief Untold from Kowton and Nautiluss round off an essential package for all the Dunning completists out there.

Studio Power On - (5:15)
from $2.53
Review: Though the enigmatic Joe may not be the most prolific of producers, having released only a handful of singles for Hessle and Apple Pips since 2009, productions like "Claptrap", "Grimelight" and "Level Crossing" remain some of the most singularly unique club tracks to come out of the UK (or anywhere) in the past few years, utilising a threadbare rhythmic precision that manages to come across as organic rather than sterile. This EP for Hemlock sees him combine this approach with that of the slower, jazz tinged approach of the 116 & Rising compilation highlight "Twice". "MB" is a mere 110BPM and a loopy trip into a collage of old funk samples, while "Studio Power On" is an uptempo "Level Crossing" style oddity with samples including what sounds like someone sawing through wood, and described by the label themselves as "the sounds of 94 Jungle smashed to bits, thrown around a studio and taped back together for 2012". Joe is one of our favourite producers here at Juno HQ, and we can safely say this is one of his best records yet.

Review: Collecting the three parts of Untold's Change In A Dynamic Environment trilogy, this digital only edition is essential for those yet to hear one of the most impressive reinventions of the year. Swapping his usual restless drums and vacuum-like bass throb for a more patient brand of techno, these tracks still pack the punch you'd expect from Jack Dunning. Both "Motion The Dance" and Luminous" channel Metalheadz era drum & bass into a 4/4 package, as buzzing drones invert the typical bass formula, while "Caslon" and "Breathe" explore deeper Detroit styles and Vangelis inspired sounds. It's "Kane" and "Overdrive" however that offer the biggest surprise, taking inspiration from post-punk and industrial music to create two seriously rough techno tracks.
