Review: While we here at Juno would never advocate drug use, it sounds like Noro has accurately captured the effetcs of the narcotics he has named these tracks after. Unsuprisingly, "Cocaine" is a grandiose affair, its epic chords enveloping the listener but also sounding somewhat removed and disconnected. "Amphetamine" meanwhile is a pummelling techno groove, hurtling along at breakneck speed, only pausing from its headlong rush into oblivion for a brief, filtered breakdown. Best of all though is "MDMA". Based on a stepping rhythm, it mimics the out there weirdness of its namesake, but avoids veering into druggy self-indulgence thanks to its insistent techno stabs.

Review: Danish duo Northern Structures has released a few EPs before on Adam X's label, but this is their most accomplished. If you're familiar with the duo's sound then you'll be prepared for the steely, at times unflinching take on industrial techno that Somewhere offers. However, it's not just business as usual; while "Session 1" is hewn from panel-beating drums and grinding riffs, "Session 2" slides into sluggish broken beats and "Session 3" morphs seamlessly from Sleeparchive-style bleeps into a Kalon-esque chain mail groove.
Despite this variety, the duo's dance floor-focused approach is never too far away and "Session 4" is built on dense drums and waves of pile-driving percussion.

Review: Although they are relative newcomers, this Scandinavian act has captured the techno zeitgeist with their uncompromisng style. Inspired by industrial sources, every track on Science succeeds in balancing subtlety and complex programming with the primal urgency of Frankie Bones and Regis. "9 To 5" is based on a huge throbbing bass, spindly perucssion and muscular, steely rhythms that recall the Birmingahm producer's 90s work, albeit at a slightly lower tempo. Meanwhile, "Powertools" is a harder proposotion, as stomping beats provide the basis for the duo to deliver belligerent riffs over garbled percussion. Finally, "Bolts" takes a sideways step; based on a broken beat, it is just as pounding as the other tracks and sounds like a jackhammer being bashed repeatedly against a concrete surface.

Review: Having graced Prologue's digital arm in 2011 with their debut EP The Origin, Notfromearth return with more of their richly textured, ambient techno for The First Contact. Unsurprisingly, the record's title evokes all manner of sci-fi visuals; the lumbering grooves and alternately fast moving textures of opener "Time Shift Experience" feel like you're suspended in a wormhole, while the urgent radiophonic textures of "Not From The Same Sun" feel like an intergalatic chase sequence, and the pulsating heartbeat of "The Fall From Earth" feels like you're at the centre of a cluster of nebulae. Of course, for all of its deeply evocative sounds, it is first and foremost a great techno EP, with "The Human Core" reminding us of its dancefloor potential. Those who enjoyed the recent Voices From The Lake and Abdulla Rashim outings on Prologue will be all over this.
