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.

In Yer Face (Bicep Acid dub) - (6:26) 120 BPM
from $1.87
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: 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: The fourth release on Rukus shows how far its owner, Matador, aka Gavin Lynch has come. Having made his name with releases on Richie Hawtin's Minus, the title track seems to channel John Carpenter's dystopian soundtracks and fuse them with a contemporary disco-noir groove. "The Vicar" sees the Irish producer make a return of sorts to club techno with its buzzing bass and stuttering vocal, but Lynch quickly makes a shift back to the disco sound he explored on the title track with "Space Charmer". There, an ominous, throbbing bass and minor key trance hooks vie for attention and the interplay creates wonderful tension. "Clowns" and "Bells And Whistles" are like halfway houses between Lynch's techno and newly-found disco style, with the latter impressing thanks to its incessant cow bells.

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".

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.

Walking Distance - (6:52) 128 BPM

Review: Time is Antonin Jeanson aka Antigone's third release for Token and sees the French artist deliver more pared back, expertly constructed techno tracks. On "Static", the rhythm is loose but angular, while powered by jangling percussion and dub blasts. Underneath this structure Jeanson adds a powerful bass that purrs with menacing intent. "Shadow Play" is a more conventional, straighter affair, evolving from a linear, pulsing groove, but once again he shows his skills with dubby effects setting it apart from the usual club techno fodder. "Walking Distance" is in a similar vein, but this time it features a detuned, noisy riff riding one of Antigone's pared back arrangements.

Review: Field Theory is undoubtedly a producer on the rise. His debut track, the acid-propelled "Rituals", was the standout cut on Futureboogie's Summer Riot V EP, while his recent Europa single on Secret Life was packed with saucer-eyed treats. The two original tracks showcased on this Sprechen outing are superb, too. He continues his obsession with psychedelic TB-303 lines on the rolling, floor-friendly strut of "What's Going On", before diving into deeper waters on the contemporary Chicago hip-house/acid house fusion of "KRS Acid". Alinka delivers a metallic, everything-but-the-kitchen sink rework of "What's Going On", while Dorsia turns "KRS Acid" into a melodious, melancholic chunk of lilting deep house.

Review: The Brotherhood Sound System released two heavy bass swelters back in 2014 and, since then, only another appearance was made in 2016, which leaves this new collaborative effort to give us a little view as to what they might be up to next. There's a whole bunch of new faxes here, and Callahan's "Kudzu" sets the scene nicely with a bit of minimalistic tribal drumming, which is followed by the glitchy, sparse two-steps of "Eastern Shores" by Silas & Snare. A:Tonal's "Perfect Imbalance" is the master-stroke on here, a fluttering wave of percussion and hissing sonics, but SYZ and LKY's beat thrashings should not go overlooked. In fact, this whole EP feels truly collaborative, linked-up by a recurrent pattern of thought which is sublimely executed from start to finish.

Zero Nine Six - (6:57) 130 BPM
from $1.87
Played by: Resident Advisor
Review: Markus Suckut clearly knows how to make throbbing, no-nonsense club cuts. His second EP for Rekids begins with a chunk of sweaty, muscular techno, where a restless, warehouse-ready riff rides a formidable rhythm track built around pulverizing kick-drums, crunchy shares, and relentless hi-hats. In essence, it's the sort of funk-fuelled techno stomper that doesn't strive too hard to impress, but does anyway. His modifies this approach a little with "Zero Nine Six", utilizing a looped synthesized sax loop to add additional funkiness to a denser groove in which his crispy snare hits take a much more prominent role. Like "10 Y", it sounds phenomenally large over club sound systems.

Review: The latest release on Pan-Pot's own label sees the pair take a few steps forward without losing their own distinctive sound. The title track bleeds warm acid lines, while the German pair conjures up a minimal house backdrop. They hook up with Martin Eyerer for "Consequence", where they update the sound of classic Dan Bell, as pitch-bent vocals vie with a busy techno rhythm for the listener's attention. "Lose Yourself" marks another shift in style; this time dark, trancey synths and foreboding tones conjure up a more malign take on Pan-Pot's sound. Berghain resident Marcel Fengler rounds off the release, delivering a loopy, tracky take on "Lose Yourself".

Review: A big congratulations to Adam Beyer and his esteemed Drumcode imprint celebrating 20 years in the business. His techno powerhouse has continuously and effortlessly remained relevant, championing the work of fellow Swedish legends Cari Lekebusch, Joel Mull and Christian Smith, to late noughties heroes like Paul Ritch, Kyle Geiger and Pig & Dan to present day stars like Nicole Moudaber, Joseph Capriati and Luigi Madonna. There's a lot of serious peak time artillery on here, rest assured. But for us, the highlights weren't limited to Alan Fitzpatrick's uplifting and downright epic "Terra Firma" with its massive drop, head honcho Beyer and Mark Reeve's "Nine Of You" with its darkly fierce and tunnelling groove plus Truncate's killer remix of Dustin Zahn's "Miss You". Honourable mention to newcomer Boxia; he's surely one to watch if the banging "Revolution" is anything to go by!

Review: Frustrated Funk, Shopwrec and Central Processing Unit are just some of the quality labels on which the enigmatic 214 has delivered his wayward strains of electro and techno on. This new single for Lunar Disko is straight-up, high calibre business, as per usual, starting with the mesmerising pads and alluring soundscapes of "The Breakfast Club", a beat-driven escapade through a wave of majestic synths. "Lunar Landing" is more on the Dutch electro side of things, thanks to its sub-aquatic beats and general demeanour while , "Jade" injects some Chicago house live through an industrial filter, and "Hurley" liquifies its synths down to a thick pool of sonics and subtle beats. Gorgeous music.

Loop 131 - (5:38) 131 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
from $1.87
Review: Mark Broom and some of his like-minded producers revisit the sound of the late 90s for the UK veteran's latest release. Broom himself impresses with "Loop 131"; like a hybrid of dirty Chicago ghetto and 90s Mills going down an organ-heavy wormhole, it's a killer piece of peak-time techno. Recent Beard Man signing Patrik Carrera keeps the sound dry and minimal for his take on the title track and in so doing straddles a fine line between repetition and musicality. The biggest surprise comes from GND owners Turbo Turbo. Grabbing "Dust" by the scruff of the neck they turn into a stadium-sized trance-techno pounder reminiscent of CJ Bolland.

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: Nathan Wilkins hooks up with Richard X again for the third Cowboy Rhythmbox outing on Erol Alkan's label. The title track is a stop-start jacking affair that resounds to a rude electronic bass. It's exactly the kind of upfront track one would expect to hear in one of the label owner's DJ sets. In stark contrast is "Children of the Monolith"; slower, dreamier and more complex, it features hypnotic chants unfolding over a mid-tempo tribal groove. The duo returns to the dance floor for "Soda Jerk". While not quite a direct as the title track, its relentless pulse and filtered percussion make it just as effective.

Review: Next up on Tiga's Turbo Recordings is Tel Aviv's Autarkic, with what he describes himself as "Industrial Techno tribal goth dub vibes for 2075 and beyond!" He starts out with the hazy and low slung groove of "Rotation! Rotation!" featuring some nice new romantic style vocals, chunky synth bass and exotic drums; sounds like Human League gone Middle Eastern safari. The remix by fellow countrymen and rising star Red Axes is way more energetic and will definitely work the floor a bit better than the original. Also "I Know" hammers the message home gloriously on this sweet slice of 80s synth pop served up in 2016 style!

Review: Finnish techno hero Bjarki is back again on Nina Kraviz' reliable Trip imprint for more retro, '90s IDM inspired techno on "Fresh Jive", taking up where he left off on his tremendous long player Lefthanded Fuqs, released earlier this year. The title track is reminiscent of early Orbital, with its breakbeats and bouncy/euphoric keys bound for some assured hands in the air moments. "Genat 8" is more straight ahead, this slamming peak time DJ tool relies on some key elements: the tough boom and snap of a TR 808 rhythm, dark pads and stuttering vocal samples all working together for perfect dancefloor mayhem.

Review: After a brief debut appearance for Brotherhood Sound System earlier this year, it was about time that LKY had the opportunity to get his point across with a full EP, and the young Artifice label have done the right thing here. In fact, it was his tune that we particularly loved from that BSS release, so it's no surprise that these four tunes are all total mind melters, and exactly the sort of bass music that is keeping the game from sounding stale. "Critical" and "Ridicule" are both total killers, two rolling, beat-heavy tunes with backed by phat layers of subbass, and propelled forwards by some truly intricate drum programming. "Stative Decision" is more of a techno tune than anything else, except that LKY still manages to inject some of that inimitable UK sensibility, leaving PAN:INC's remix of "Critical" to cap this highy recommended release with some truly militant percussive stabbing. Excellent and tipped.

Review: The new album Wonderland is Miles Whittaker and Sean Canty's first LP as Demdike Stare since 2012's Elemental and arrives a year on after the completion of their Testpressing EP series for Modern Love. Starting out with the demonic and guttural body basher "Curzon" where you know right away that this album will be one wild ride. "Hardnoise" goes from industrial noise to sub bass heavy techno to blissful IDM over its epic 10-minute duration. Elsewhere, "Sourcer" tackles a mangled form of late '90s techstep while the beautiful closer "Overstaying" is a glorious exercise in hypnotism that sits somewhere between minimal techno and deconstructed electro.

Review: Harry Agius aka Midland is back: does he ever find time to sleep? Following up the Akase side project he's involved in with Robbie Redway and some killer releases on Aus Music, Feel My Bicep and of course his own Graded imprint which this appears on; making it the label's third release already. "Blush" is a slow burning and emotive piece with an epic vintage synth arpeggio and soulful strings backed by the most restrained beat. "Outpost" gets a bit more fierce with a tougher beat and a free running arpeggio that reeks havoc much like Carl Craig's classic remix of "Falling Up". Finally "Holdup" hammers the message home gloriously with its off kilter yet hypnotic beat and sombre yet emotive atmosphere.

Sheer dancefloor fury; warehouse style, on offer here as heard on the relentless title track. The power of nightmares prevails on the bleak dystopian industrial of "Flight 19", and the steely and adrenalised grooves continue on "The Triangle" and "Sirius".

Review: Andre Kronert's label continues on its mission to showcase underground techno on this second installment of Diffused Light. This time, the emphasis is on emerging and under-the-radar artists. Observer's "Density Wave" caters to a big room audience as it resounds to a muddy bass and rough kicks. Meanwhile, Anders Hellberg's "Over the Hill" will resonate with a similar audience, even though it revolves around tranced out synths and doubled-up claps. Following a more understated approach is Electric Rescue's "Beldip (tt 144)", which revolves around a bubbling bass and rasping percussion. Best of all is Nima Khak's "Ebb Och Flod", where brittle, stepping rhythms merge with mysterious static hiss and hum for a heady combination.

Review: Given that Neil McDonald aka Lord of the Isles has released on notable labels like Firecracker - and its offshoots - as well as Phonica, Mule and Permanent Vacation, it was only a matter of time before ESP Institute tapped him for a release. That said, McDonald does not follow a typical deep house trajectory here. Indeed, the title track, in its extended version, is a distorted jacking affair, shot through with dark waves of acid. While Ian Blevins' version offers a pulsing, less visceral alternative take on "Weh-In", overall this release is jittery and hyperactive, as the abstract twists and growling bass of closing track "Pik" demonstrates.

Review: Sand is Parker's debut record on Tresor, which is surprising because his distinctive, underground style is the perfect soundtrack to the Berlin club's sweaty environs. It's not hard to visualise the title track's rolling groove, recoiling bass and dark percussive bursts causing mayhem on the club's main dance floor. The US producer reverts to his typical sound on "Angels in Cages" and "Gyroscopic Precession". Both tracks feature the kind of sub-sonic bleeps and morphing bass tones that have defined his releases since the late 90s. The final track, "Meteor Crater" is deep, even by Parker's own standards, and sees him retreat into a woozy, dreamy techno groove.

Review: As ethereal and transient as a cherry tree blossoming in spring, these remixes of Icelandic artist Yagya's 2006 album are up there among Deepchord's most accomplished work to date. Flowing seamlessly over eight untitled pieces, the collection starts with wispy, chord heavy ambience that gives way to tick-tocking pulses by the time it reaches "04" and into gentle, undulating dubby techno grooves on "06" and "07". However, even as Deepchord's remixes hint at the dance floor, they bring it back to the horizontal with the billowing pads and gentle melodies of "08". As remix projects go, Yagya versus Deepchord makes for a dream combination.

Review: In one of the most unexpected but nonetheless inspired collaborations of recent times, legendary producer and remixer Arthur Baker has teamed up with Suicide frontman Alan Vega for "Angel of Hell". The other variable that makes this release so unexpected and invaluable is the involvement of Paranoid London. Over the course of two remixes, the mysterious act's acid belligerence and rolling drums act as the perfect counterfoil to Vega's tortured vocals and shrieks of pain. In another twist, former Sabres of Paradise member Jagz Kooner delivers a high-octane, techno workout, informed by Suicide's droning no-wave and relentless ghetto techno in equal measures.
