Review: Arma is a 22 year old producer from London who heads up BodyCheck & Borough Recordings. As a producer, he is someone who's constantly evolving his sound and will not be pigeonholed to a single genre or BPM. Also known for lo-fi house under his DJ VHS moniker, his tunes are all unified through their energy and fun loving vibes. These driving, party loving joints are reminiscent of fellow Brit Mele: who signed him to his label. With their excursion into the exotic, not to mention how much they push the threshold of the lo-end! "Favela" is a bombastic joint that features some mad horn loops and powered by a relentless stomp and clatter. But it's really about Murder He Wrote's absolutely nasty, street level remix where he injects it with some proper UK funky flavour.

Review: Talk about an unusual pairing; New York's best-known vegan has partnered with Adam Beyer's techno label for some big room versions of his 90s hits. At its most understated, this collection features German producer Tiger Stripes delivering a stripped back, minimal house take on "Go", while at the other end of the spectrum, Luca Agnelli turns the dreamy, wispy vocals of "Porcelain" into a thumping, rolling affair. In between these two extremes, there's the organic drums on Bart Skills' take of "Go" and Enrico Sangiuliano turning "Why Does My Heart Feel So Bad?" into an effective but strangely catchy groove, as the original track's operatic vocal is fused with waves of acid.

Review: Maceo Plex returns on his respected Ellum Audio imprint with a new album. Here the fellow known to his Mum as Eric Estornel presents some highly engineered grooves that reflect his extensive background in producing techno and electro; way back to his modest Dallas, Texas beginnings under the tutelage of greats like Gerard Hanson (Covenxtion/E.R.P.) where he used such aliases as Mariel Ito and Maetrik. Return to Solar is certainly diverse in its execution of various moods and grooves but overall has a definite sense of soul and emotion throughout. We particularly enjoyed the the intelligent electro of "The Replicant V1" or "Love On Time", the hi-tech soul of "Shoulder Of Orion" and the tough futurist stomp of "Traktion".

Robag Wruhme - "X-mop 198" - (4:59) 123 BPM
from $1.86
Review: Pampa offshoot Hart & Tief launched earlier in the year, via a split EP featuring tracks by Soulphiction and Mike Denhert. This time round, fellow German producers DJ Koze and Robag Wruhme are at the controls. Koze kicks things off with "Driven", a clanking, booty-shaking fusion of metallic percussion hits, resonating electronics, dub techno motifs, and minimalist textures. It feels a little like a contemporary Berlin take on early '90s Sheffield "clonk" (think Sweet Exorcist's Clonk's Coming album on Warp), which is no bad thing in our book. Wruhme's "X-mop 198" is a much more straightforward, early morning techno bubbler, albeit with similarly clanking percussion hits amongst the thumping kick drums and restless, one-note riffs.

Review: Oscar Mulero's Polegroup label closes the year with a mammoth compilation that defines the current state of the techno nation. As Unknown Landscapes shows, it is a diverse place. There's droning ambience from Daphne RXX, while Reeko, Reggy Van Oers and Mike Parker deliver bleep-heavy, hypnotic groove that draw on the influence of F.U.S.E and Sandwell District. Heads-down loopy fare is also catered for - with the spiky percussion and bleak filters of Jonas Koop's "Fu Factor" standing out - and the form also revisits the rough, analogue sound of the 90s thanks to Karl Bult and American scene veteran DJ Hyperactive's contributions.

In Yer Face (Bicep Acid dub) - (6:26) 120 BPM
from $1.86
Review: For those of a certain age, the opening seconds of 808 State's 1991 rave anthem "In Yer Face" - a combination of memorable melody lines and loved-up chords - are still capable of setting the pulse racing. Bicep have taken on the task of updating Graham Massey and company's anthem for a new generation, serving up two fresh interpretations. Wisely, they emphasize the spine-tingling goodness of the Manchester outfit's chord progressions on their A-side remix, getting rougher, tougher and weightier as the track progresses. Their flipside acid dub - where electro-inspired breakbeats, heavy bass and floatation tank melodies are expertly combined with ragged TB-303 lines - recalls the similarly-minded thrills of DJ Parrot and Mark Brydon's 'Sunshine Dub' of DJ Mink's early Warp slammer "Hey! Hey! Can U Relate?".

Review: With releases on Live At Robert Johnson - including two albums - Balihu and Uncanny Valley, Pagliara might seem like an unusual choice of artist to put out music on Ostgut. That said, the Italian producer has had a long association with Berghain and was even a regular at its first incarnation. In any case, "If I Try to Forget I Will Miss You Even More" sees him ride a pulsing electronic disco groove, while on "Time And Again" he provides a rougher version of that sound as a pulsing bass and raw drums crash and pound away. "To A Faraway Place", with its insistent chord builds, is the kind of track that Steffi might play in the Panorama Bar, but it's only a fleeting nod at the club's chosen soundtrack and Pagliara quickly swings back towards the left of centre - this time with the acidic downtempo epic, "A Passing Day".

Review: Reflec is the latest producer to sign up to the Clergy label. Run by UK producer Cleric, it has so far released a record from Dax J - as well as material from its owner - and seems intent on bringing some thought back to peak time techno. This approach is certainly evident on Passage. "Fracture" sees Reflec provide an updated version of Luke Slater at his most visceral - albeit with some ghostly organ riffs added in - while on "Cult", there is a nod towards the concrete weight kicks of SP-X and Oscar Mulero. On "Passage", a less bombastic sound prevails, with Reflec deploying a wiry, snaking rhythm and tight claps. The biggest shift comes right at the end, with a 90's ambient sounding take on "Passage".

Review: The Bunker's label has helped to cultivate a number of new techno acts over the past few years, and the latest artist to step up is Justin Cudmore. The Brooklyn-based DJ and producer first showcased his material on an EP for Honey Sound System last year, and Forget It provides further proof of his promise. The title track is a bleepy, acid-fuelled Chicago house track, while "New Jack The House" follows in a similar vein, albeit with rougher beats. "Moment" sees Cudmore fuse his love of 303s with the pitch-bent minimalism of Dan Bell, while on "Sweet Phantasy" he relives the energy of mid-west raves, as trancey chords flow over heavy drums.

Review: Here's an unusual release; Italian house duo Hunter/Game have teamed up with Icelandic band Kura, and now their collaborations get remixed by some of techno's biggest names. Robert Hood conjures up a moody spectre with his version of "Signs of Change", with a tearing electronic riff cutting through an insistent metallic rhythm. In stark contrast is Etapp Kyle's remix; dissected vocals float over dreamy, floaty synths and a laid back, dub groove. The direction shifts again when Bambounou gets to reshape the same track; the French producer's first take is a sprawling, spaced out take, while his dub version descends into a complex, abstract workout, led by percussive hiss and tape noise.

Review: Quite a number of techno fans will go weak at the knees when they spot this expansive collaboration between longtime friends and occasional studio partners Marcel Dettmann and Ben Klock. It's their first combined release since 2013. Every one of the 7 tracks are full of high quality, atmospheric, late night techno workouts, from the creepy riffs and off-kilter drums of "Phantom Studies", and the horror-influenced post-dubstep shuffle of "The Room", to the raging, mind-altering dancefloor heaviness of "Bay Boy" and sparse, minimalist techno closer "The Tenant". Given their abilities as producers, we'd expect nothing less than superbly produced, club-ready cuts. Predictably, Phantom Studies delivers that in spades.

Review: Sascha Funke is one of those rare producers who does his own thing. With only a few releases to his credit in recent years - despite releasing three artist albums in the preceding decade - the elusive Berlin-based artist emerges from the shadows for this EP on Tiga's label. The title track is 'big' by Funke's usually understated standards, with woozy riffs cutting across a resonating bass and rickety percussion. It also benefits from Funke's smart production approach, with drops and builds in all the right places. "Robur" meanwhile sees him delve even farther underground as a frazzled bass builds against a backdrop of hollowed out drums and a stripped back rhythm. "MZ" sees Funke deliver a soaring electronic disco track, while keeping it diverse to the end, "Barkas" is a melodic, Kompakt-style affair.

Review: Bulgarian hardware maverick KiNK is back, this time on Singapore based Midnight Shift who have presented great releases previously by L/F/D/M, Mr G and John Heckle. First track "Chorus" features hands in the air synth stabs that resonate and modulate to a mighty crescendo over a dry, skittering rhythm. Second offering "Madame X" delves deeper on this low slung acid number, where the signature wobble of the Roland TB-303 faces off with a bare bones TR-909 rhythm; simple yet effective. Finally "Emotional Breakdown" goes for some off kilter electro flavour with its broken beat accompanied by emotive pads and spacey modular squeals on this fine example of deconstructed hi-tech soul.

Review: Sangiuliano is an Italian DJ who has been associated with Adam Beyer through a release on Truesoul. Now he steps up for the Swedish DJ's main imprint with this killer big room record. The title track is a brooding bass-heavy affair that is very much in line with Beyer's own sound. On "Ghettoblaster" he mixes up the approach; break beats hip-hop scratches and tiny vocal snippets all come together over a moody jungle-inspired low end. While "Dutch Kiss" sees him explore a more house-oriented sound thanks to its hypnotic organs at its core is a robust bass that bleeps and spits furiously.

Review: Chemistry is the third EP from Pig & Dan on Adam Beyer's label this year and sees the duo deliver three more powerful, big room tracks. The title track revolves around an embrace of trance-y melodies and shimmering chords, but these melodic elements play out against a framework of tough, metallic beats. On "Ukraine", the pair put their focus on linear club techno, albeit with a slightly different twist; the kicks are tough and unrelenting, but the rhythm skips and steps. There is no such ambivalence on "Devotion"; rooted in concrete kicks and a firing rhythm, a pin-pick riff is filtered in and out of red-level intensity throughout this heady arrangement.

Review: Since first emerging in 2014, Dutch duo Artefakt has earned a reputation for delivering spacey, melodious techno tracks that mines both classic Detroit techno, and British style 'intelligent techno' for inspiration. On this hotly anticipated debut album, they cast their net a little wider, including denser rhythms and more left of centre sounds amongst the starry melodies, intergalactic chords, and sparkling drum machine beats. It's a formula that consistently delivers results, from the undulating, tribal-influenced rhythms and emotion-rich musicality of "Entering The City", to the angry, acid-fuelled onslaught of "Return To Reason", via the sun-kissed electro brilliance of "Somatic Dreams".

Review: Efde has only a few releases to his credit, but this outing on Tom Trago's label trumps his previous output. In its original format, the title track combines soaring trance melodies, rolling snare drums and a central riff that gets more and more noisy as the arrangement progresses. It makes for an intoxicating combination and is redolent of "Primary Roots", one of Trago's own, earlier productions. There is an eerie ambient version of the title track, but it's clear from the rest of the release that Efde's real home is out on the dance floor. "Just Did It" is a pulsing, electronic bass-heavy affair, while on "CMP135", he mines a deeper but still driving house sound.

Review: Frits Wentik's Will & Ink imprint presented several EPs by the new garde of Dutch house music: Nick Putman aka Malin Genie (Oscillat/Mandar) and newcomer Yaleesa Hall who delivered the impressive Woodall LP where he deconstructed groove music to its bare elements. We now get given a series of remixes from both the Lucas and Carol EPs here, with some very appropriate artists doing a damn fine job indeed. Post UK bass techno fuses in on Mosca's Pure Joy version of "Second Lucas" a brutal body basher that at times was reminiscent of Surgeon or British Murder Boys, believe it or not! The Livity Sound affiliated Asusu from Bristol also steps up and gives us his rendition of "Second Carol" a splintered dub techno workout that's a serious as it is functional. Hall and Malin also get stuck into one more new version themselves with their appropriately titled "YHxM Stripped mix" which sits somewhere between microhouse, dub techno and industrial aesthetics.

Review: The latest release from Valentin Corujo aka Kessell draws on 90s minimal techno for inspiration. A nagging, acidic bass is at the heart of the title track, while on "Psychosocial", a darker, heavier rhythm prevails. Both arrangements sound relatively restrained when compared to "Intensity of Perception". There, a cold, bleep-laden rhythm dominates and sounds redolent of classic Robert Hood and even Joey Beltram's "Game Form". Ramping up gradually in intensity as it progresses, it's one of Corujo's finest productions so far. The chord-heavy "Shirka" maintains the hard-edged sound as it is delivered with grainy drums, while "Helical Structure" ends the EP in a percussive flurry.

Review: Despite being only in his early 20s, Charles Fenckler has produced one of the finest techno albums of the year. Void follows on from a brace of Eps for Slam's label, and serves as the strongest showcase yet for his talents. What sets Fenckler apart from his peers is his ability to veer from classic to modern styles without compromising his sound. "Immersion" is a breathy, melodic workout with echoes of early 90s UK techno, while "Frozen Room" is a Dave Clarke Red-style banger, replete with sirens and dramatic stabs and the full on acid of "Stellar Acid" completes Fenckler's interest in that era. Similarly, this young talent also has a modern outlook; there's the tumbling tribal drums of "District 2" and the atmospheric, broken beats of "Subject X103", which has echoes of Perc and Randomer. It's an assured, confident release that belies his youth.

Review: Architectural is the side project of Juan Rico, better known in techno circles as Reeko. However, 2015's excellent Amour album as Architectural suggested that Rico's real talent lay in creating deeply atmospheric electronic music. That touch is audible on the hypnotic sound scapes of "Cubismo 8.2 (Lost in Buenos Aires 1)", but also bubbles beneath the surface on dance floor tracks like the frazzled tribal groove of "Cubismo 8.1". On "Cubismo 8.3", Rico follows a tunneling techno route, but in the main he impresses most when adopting a more reflective approach. "Cubismo 8.4 (Lost in Buenos Aires II)" resounds to shimmering chords and the "Cubismo 8.5 (Lost in Buenos Aires II)" is fizzy ambience of the highest order.

Review: London's Tessela has been crafting his sound in spectacular fashion over the last few years and none of his productions have caued more of a stir than the now rare as you like vinyl smash "Hackney Parrot". The prodigious bass explorer is not necessarily offering groundbreaking new genres but, instead, new ways of layering sounds next to one another. Both of the present tunes magnificent examples of rough, sweltering UK bass that's been run through the ever-enjoyable jungle filter. "Hackney Parrot" twists and layers up a famous vocal sample with masses of stop-start jungle breaks, and a couple of deep basslines that remind us of Dillinja's early output for Metalheadz. "Helter Skelter" is the heads-down tune, the one that's bound to get the crowd moving during a 5am trance, and Tessela's use of drums is becoming more and more essential for us after this new Poly Kicks. Warmly recommended.

Review: Is Endlec's latest release on Bas Mooy's label a soundtrack for these dark days of global uncertainty? Certainly, "Something More Sinister", with its splintered analogue riffs and hammering rhythm, captures the terrifying mood surrounding regime change in the US, while the heads-down, cyber-techno jack of "Dystopian Heart" and "Population Control" act as warnings of further bad things to come. Despite these somewhat chilling titles, the Greek producer knows how to craft a hypnotic sound. "Consistency & Patience" resounds to a mesmerising, layered rhythm, infested with wild electronic blips and bleeps, while the noisy, siren riff-led "Fight for the Power" is the naked, angry sound of the resistance.

Elsewhere, UK hardware maverick Neville Watson throws down the rather first wave Detroit sounding "Hazing" while the Going Good and Lovers Rock affiliated Yoshinori Hayashi serves us a wonderful, Erased Tapes style classical ambient journey titled "Pogado Tower"

Review: With his 2015 debut EP for Breaker Breaker, London-based deep house misfit Ross From Friends made a seriously big impression. Much was made of his dusty, fidgety, lo-fi sound, and his penchant for jamming out tunes using outboard hardware. This belated follow-up for Lobster Theremin offshoot Distant Hawaii takes a similar approach, kicking off with the loved-up chord progressions, clattering drum machine percussion, redlined tape hiss and heart-aching vocal samples of "Talk To Me You'll Understand". "Gettin' It Done" is an altogether more positive and Balearic-minded trip into dusty deep house territory, while "Bootman" makes merry with mutilated '80s soul samples, hazy chords and fuzzy drums.

Review: Originally released in 2015, Young Marco's "The Best I Could Do" shows that he is as adept in the studio as he is behind the decks. The renowned crate digger draws on his knowledge of underground house and techno for this understated, melancholic affair. Sad synths swirl up over a raw, resonating bass and the end result has a decidedly wintry feeling. House veteran Tom Trago drops a similar sounding track, "Brutal Romance (TT's Love Fix)". However, on this occasion, the groove is upbeat and the riffs are more insistent, but the same frazzled approach to production prevails. Keeping it atmospheric, Fatima Yamaha delivers the slow tempo, synth-heavy "The Creature From Culture Creation", which also featured on the original 2015 release.

Review: Decompression is one of Vonda7's first releases, but she is already an accomplished producer. Both the title track and "Away" merge elements of dub techno - audible on the power basslines - with purist techno techniques like doubled up claps and eerie synth lines. There is another, quite different side to Vonda7's sound, and this is audible on "Don't Hesitate". There, the mood and melodies are much lighter. There is even an upbeat female vocal running through the arrangement that is in stark contrast to the female sample used on "Away". Secondcity's techy take on "Away" completes a release that covers many of the elements of Sasha's own DJing.

Event Horizon - (8:13) 126 BPM

Review: The latest release on Tale of Us' label is a collaboration between Italian duo Mind Against and Aether, who is based in London. Like Mind Against's previous release on the label, this three-tracker is deep and tripped out. The title track evolves from a pulsing groove into a tranced out rush that gently moves up and down the melody scale, accompanied by a frazzled bass. "Eclipse" is more stripped back, with minimal beats and percussive clicks providing the backing for a rasping bass. Finally, there's "Event Horizon". Like the deep space horror movie of the same name, it sees the trio voyage down a wormhole populated by supernatural sounds and discarded space wreckage.
