Bad Kingdom (Robag Wruhme 4/4 edit Mit Xomlopp remix Schwanz-014) - (10:33) 118 BPM
from $1.49
Review: Here's something of a treat for Moderat fans: a stonking new remix of II album favourite "Bad Kingdom" by German veteran DJ Koze. There's much to admire about his bumping, floor-friendly reinterpretation, which retains the original's woozy, hazy vibe - and distinctive vocals - while gently leading it further towards the dancefloor with arms raised skywards. It's melodic, quietly uplifting and decidedly heavy, even if the percussion does shuffle rather than bang. The (virtual) flipside offers another treat in the shape of an extended 11-minute version of Robag Wruhme's swinging, string-laden re-edit of the same track, which first appeared (in shortened form) on January's "Tour Edition" reissue of II.

from $1.49
Review: Spanish outpost Polegroup is the archetypal techno label, and Kwartz is a purveyor of the finest techno workouts. After having released artists such as the US' Developer, the nomadic Kwartz touches down on the label with two daring and sublimely bleak tracks for the midnight hour. Both "Form & Void" and "Breakage" are perfect Berghain tracks for the likes of Dettman or Klock, but that's not all - Reeko and Exium remix the former and the latter respectively, turning up the power considerably and making things that little bit heavier.

Review: Danny Tenaglia is a stone cold legend, but his profile has waned significantly over recent years. Given that it's 25 years since the release of his first production, this first contribution to the Balance series - is well timed. Pleasingly, it seems Tengalia still "has it it". Throughout the collection, the veteran NYC DJ maintains a fearsome energy level, mixing things up via a track list that spans chunky tech-house, darkroom tribal, heavily percussive fare (see Michel Cleis' dub of Basement Jaxx's "Mermaid of Salinas") and intelligent techno revivalism (Dax J's brilliant "Dreamscape" and Ho's "Deletion 3"). It is, of course, an impeccable selection, as you'd expect from a man with Tengalia's undoubted pedigree.

Brock Out EP by Bodyjack on Unknown To The Unknown Cue Track
That's What She Said (DJ Haus On Tha remix) - (5:14) 123 BPM
from $1.49
Review: Better known by his birth name Chris Finke as a purveyor of serious techno on Mote Evolver et al, in his Bodyjack guise Finke is having a lot of fun whipping up UK-rave fuelled boompty bangers, which makes it something of an inevitability that a partnership with UTTU would be on the cards. The EP title issues the command, and who are we to argue when the bass comes as thick and slimy as it does on "Brock Out", replete with crafty sample drops and a rattling set of drums that will reform your bone marrow. "That's What She Said" is no less rude, maximizing on dirty drum machine beats and sleazy synth and vocal licks that conjure up a modern update of Dance Mania's deviant soul. DJ Haus remixes the latter jam into a garage-y belter with the wobbliest bass and a mean kink in the groove.

Percussion Workout 2 - (8:36) 134 BPM
from $1.49
Review: Having struggled to find his niche during the early part of his career, things started looking up for Randomer when he popped up on Numbers back in 2011 with the bombastic blends of acid house and techno that made up his impressive Real Talk EP. Since then, he's impressively flitted between techno and bass music, and here delivers an all-out techno assault for Clone's occasional Basement Series. There's a real no-nonsese feel to the relentless kick-drums and cut-up vocal samples of "Stupid Things I Do", which comes in "New School" and "Old School" mix formats (the latter including some looser techno breakbeats, and thus being our pick). The EP also includes two formidable percussion workouts, which deliver driving drums and booming basslines.

Caldera by Recondite on Hotflush Recordings Cue Track
DRGN2 - (7:10) 126 BPM
from $1.49
Played by: Resident Advisor
Review: It's fair to say Lorenz Brunner's profile as Recondite has rocketed in the two years since he last appeared on Hotflush with DRGN / Wist 365 which is largely due to getting scooped up by the Ghostly International label for last year's widely praised Hinterland LP. A lot has happened stylistically with Hotflush in this period too, though recent output suggests the label is swinging back to the sort of techno Recondite is known for. A notion qualified by this new single. The A-side provides a sparse and broken techno image that may have well found its way on to Scuba's Sub:stance mix back in the day had it been around then. Meanwhile on the flip, Recondite goes for a heavy and metallic, yet soulful, sound which will appease the rootops of Ibiza revellers to the grey, concrete clubbers of Berlin.

Feel It Out EP by Mella Dee on Manucci's Mistress Cue Track
Raptor (Will Berridge remix) - (7:16) 62 BPM
from $1.49
Review: In addition to his work as one half of Mista Men, London via Doncaster producer Ryan Aitchison has been making solo moves under his Mella Dee guise these past few years with appearances in all the right places (think Wolf Music, Shabby Doll and Sccucci Manucci). In fact Mella Dee's featured on two of the latter label's releases so it's little surprise to find the producer popping up on the affiliated Manucci's Mistress operation. The Feel It Out EP sits snugly between house, techno and bass music with the lead cut featuring a rather vicious sub bass line and some superb vocal edits, whilst "Raptor" opts for a moodier UKG meets snapping techno flex. Do check the smudged out bass refix from Will Berridge too.

Voiski - "A Star In Your Head" - (7:45) 127 BPM
from $1.49
Review: The excellent Dutch label provides the first in a series of vinyl tasters for its upcoming compilation. Field is one of the few imprints that focus mainly on split releases and this record shows just how diverse its view is. Acronym's track begins with spacey ambience before moving into the kind of cold, pointillist techno that Terrence Dixon has pioneered. The two other tracks are tough and functional; Ben Buitendijk's "Colourblind" is a pumping, thundering affair, while Voiski chooses a more subtle approach for "A Star In Your Head". While the rhythm is steely and tough, the use of dubbed out drums and glassy percussion serve to lend it a less abrasive feeling.

from $1.49
Review: It's the onset of a brave new era for Ostgut Ton as Panorama Bar 06 signals the label's decision to halt the manufacturing of CDs for their much loved series of mixes. Due for free download via the Ostgut site on August 11, the Berlin operation have not forgone the vinyl format with all the exclusives gathered by mix curator Ryan Elliott pressed up across a pair of 12" samplers. And boy did Elliott call in the favours with this first sampler featuring new and unreleased music from Neworldaquarium, Roman Flugel, Terrence Dixon, Tuff City Kids and Borrowed Identity. It is an overall exquisite selection, running from the ambience of NWAQ's contribution to Flugel's big room stomper and the sweeter, more playful sounds of Tuff City Kids and Borrowed Identity.

Machine Elves - (5:45) 154 BPM
from $1.49
Played by: Tommy Four Seven
Review: Can D Carbone maintain the peak of his and industrial techno's plateau? Considering he's one third of Repitch Recordings with Shapednoise, yes. This release for the furbished MORD label follows editions from Radial, Paul Birkin, Bas Mooy and UVB. And as the label's catalogue numbers move further into double figures, Carbone serves up a dynamic four-track EP of blistering techno. "Irritating Collapse" is hard, '90s acid terror only slowed down, while "Origin" is sludgy, but still has that rough, Tresor-techno vibe. The beat and caustic metallic clusters of "Discernment" sound like they've come from a Gotham City sewer while the atmospheres and distorted bass stabs of "Machine Elves" are reminiscent to what can sometimes be heard in Milton Bradley's The End Of All Existence concept.

Played by: Maelstrom, Gut Nose
Review: Despite their impenetrable name and previous releases, SHXCXCHCXSH's second album is strangely accessible. Not in a Katy Perry let's all hum along kind of way, but more due to the fact that it doesn't assault the listener with the concrete weight beats that other SHXCXCHCXSH releases are known for. It seems that the Swedish duo has learnt the value of subtlety, but without losing their edge. From the eerie ambience of "Entering The S-Cloud" through the distorted, noisy electro of "Elo-cution", the atmospheric techno sounds of "The Roots" and the snapping percussion and repetitive machine riffs of "Drain the Lord", Linear S Decoded is one of 2014's best techno albums.

Review: New York's venerable Mister Saturday Night imprint - an offshoot of Justin Carter and Eamon Harkin's party series of the same name - has spent the last couple of years building a reputation as a go-to label for those who like their house and techno eccentric and left-of-centre. Here, they present a showcase of their output to date that mixes previously vinyl-only singles - see Lumigraph's "Yacht Cruiser", the murky jazz-house flex of Archie Pelago's "Brown Oxford" and General Ludd's sweaty "Woo-Ha" - with a swathe of previously unreleased cuts. These are uniformly excellent, with the murky future voodoo of General Ludd's "C" and Archie Pelago's jazz-funk jam "Cinema Club" standing out.

from $1.49
Review: If you are a fan of 2020 Vision with a keen understanding of the online electronic music community you will probably be content with the content that's preceded the release of Content, the label's 20th anniversary compilation. Yet how does the multi-format release shape up against the pre-release hype? Well this second sampler features a brand new cut from Simian Mobile Disco as well as fresh remixes of 2020 classics from Matthew Herbert and Cassy, which says it all really! SMD lead the way with "Parson's Nose" which is Jas and James at their most melodically languid and involving, whilst Cassy adds some notable chunkiness to "Get On Down," David Duriez's 2002 release on Ralph Lawson's label. The idea alone of Herbert remixing Maya Jane Coles is filled with intrigue and his resultant take on "Senseless" is resolutely strange without losing any dancefloor impact.

Review: Tiga's label delves deep into Canada's underground scene to kickstart this new series. First up is Visionquest associate Clarian with "Inuit". Over clanging metallic beats its bass soars and groans as eerie textures map out an unusual direction, a middle ground between the organic and the futuristic. Hreno's "Tree Trunks" is also based on steely elements - this time it's a metallic rhythm - underpinning a vocal that repeats 'my soul' insistently. Von Party's "Pygmy Funk" is more conventional, with clicking percussion and tripped out chords surging to the fore, while by the time you get to Mike Mind's "Caveman", the release has veered into a stepping, pulsing bass sound.

Review: It seems like the last few months of 2014 are going to be quite big for a newly bearded up Surgeon with a series of enticing looking reissues of '90s material under the SRX banner due to commence soon, as well as an incoming British Murder Boys retrospective on DNS. First up, the UK techno legend makes his debut proper on Token with Fixed Action Pattern, a two-track single of distorted, broken beat techno tailor-made for the Belgian label. Essentially two variants of the same track, the original is exactly the sort of searing, peak time wall-shaker you'd expect when Surgeon meets Token, and it's complemented nicely by a dub version that the label quite aptly compare to Lee Scratch Perry dabbling in industrial electronics.

Never Grow Old (Re-Plant) / Phobia (Re-Plant) by Floorplan on M Plant US Cue Track
Phobia - (5:32) 128 BPM
from $1.49
Review: Robert Hood's Floorplan project was one of the most inspired musical reinventions of recent times, and it showed that the Detroit producer does driving house just as well as visceral, minimal techno. On this new version of "Never Grow Old", Hood picks up the pace and fuses the original's gospel vocals with eerie organ keys. "Phobia" is much tougher and is like a halfway house between Hood's harder techno and this side project's lighter side. Dense, tough drums provide the backing for chugging, searing riffs. It could be the sound of a ghost train leaving the platform and leading the listener to another imaginary world that Hood has created.

Speed & Sound (Regis Z:arts Lab version) - (10:04) 125 BPM
from $1.49
Review: The debut Sandwell District finally arrives in the digital domain. The US-UK collective, comprised of Regis (Karl O'Connor), Function (Dave Sumner), Silent Servant (Juan Mendez) and Female (Peter Sutton), have hit a raw nerve with their dark, cerebral sound that has been cultivated by the meeting of some of the genre's most singular minds. This version Feed Forward differs slightly from the original vinyl release, but still includes the three majestic parts of "Immolare", with a robust techno throb sandwiched by an intro/outro of atmospheric synth rhythms and barely-there vocals. The main body is dominated by a particularly abrasive sonic hook, which takes you through the darkest of tunnels before re-emerging into the light once the beat drops out and the gentle synths return to the fore. Things toughen up on the flip, with "Grey Cut Out" dropping straight into a demented broken beat, before "Falling The Same Way" offers the LP's most emotive moment, with abrasion swapped for warmth - gentle snare hits, occasional bleeps and another delicious analogue melody provide the rhythmic foundation. The overall result is one of the best techno albums in a very, very long time.

Dot - (6:31) 130 BPM
from $1.49
Review: The Run is the debut release on Them, a label affiliated to a series of events in London influenced by "VHS nasties, pirate radio, raves". Clearly, the grimier side of culture has had a bearing on this first release and the title track sounds like a particularly steely take on Detroit techno, dragged through a back alley and given extra powers thanks to its titanium played claps. J Tijn's reshape is of a similar nature, but he goes heavy on the distortion to turn it into a fuzzy, feedback-heavy groove. Iizuka eases up on the intensity levels for "Dot", but it still features a driving, insistent rhythm.

from $1.49
Played by: Seth Troxler
Review: Leipzig native Stefanik rose to recognition during the minimal boom, but it sounds like he has long since departed from that scene. The German producer's latest release on Cocoon pushes in other directions; on the title track, Stefanik uses a nagging bass to underpin synths that shift in mood from deep and doleful to scarily atmospheric. The flip side track, 'Illumination', is even more hard-hitting. Percussive bullets fly in and tough kicks that have more in common with Magnetic North than Minimal Man ensure that it never operates at anything less intense than fist-pumping level. It's quite a transformation.

Review: Given how prolific he's been across multiple aliases these past few years, you can forgive Boris Bunnik for the lack of output that's characterised his year so far, with just the sole Versalife 12" for Clone's Store Only Series issued. A return to his main creative concern Conforce is most welcome then and the Depth Over Distance EP suggests the Dutchman's production powers are fully recharged. Opening with the title track, Conforce's talent for captivating spacious lines and crisp refreshing drum programming is on full display whilst "Plateau" veers off into abstract territory. Powered by supple arpeggios and powerful kicks, "Rendez-vous" feels like Conforce at his most floor focused whilst "Closer" ends proceedings on a haunting, ambient note.

Review: It's not often we see Ashley Burchett try his had at ambient or experimental productions, so it's about time we did. "Medlab" introduces this EP, and for its brief 40 seconds it sounds like a purring space shuttle combing the outer-limits of an unknown galaxy. It sets the tone for the serious "Burden Of Proof"; although looping to infinity, its musical elements do vary to a point of actually being musical. "Out-last", the second of four ambient tracks, rattles and bends like a creaking door in an echo-chamber inside of a sunken submarine, while there's something sonically dismantled about the warped sounds on "Construct Of The Mind". Fans of Spherical Coordinates on Token will warm to the cool, dark and mysterious jungle sounds of the EP's title track, while Phase delivers what he does best in "Systems Theory". Something different from Phase and something new from Token.

Review: Ovum's 20th anniversary has been heralded by this very special collection of remixes. Taking on the 1998 classic, techno superstars from across the globe have taken to their artfully darkened studios to create their own version of events, making ten new insights in total. From German techno powerhouse Ben Klock's frighteningly impeccable take to Harry Romero's rather more dancefloor-driven affair; Size 9's minimal injection progresses into an addictive bass loop and My Friend wraps things up with an abstract lesson in sound design, cutting sharp textures and flaccid bass tones to create something totally alien. A must buy.

Review: Now regarded as something of a doyen for the UK techno community, Karl O'Connor aka Regis is revered with something approaching religious fervor in some circles. And it's little wonder; his brutal yet inherently funky and artful strand of techno brought together the worlds on industrial and DIY punk with pummeling 4x4 machine music long before any one else. Between 1994 and 2000, he delivered a string of uncompromising techno records comparable to the early output of Dave Clarke and Jeff Mills, and here the Downwards imprint looks back on those halcyon days with the first volume of a Complete Recordings reissue. Certified fans won't bother reading this review - it's buy on sight material - but lovers of contemporary techno looking to trace the genre's diverse origins should look, listen and learn from one of the undisputed greats.

Review: Oscar Mulero's Polegroup calls upon a storied cast of producers to remix Exuim's 2013 album, which begins with this EP's highlight: a fresh, post-punky - supremely techno sounding - Silent Servant remix to "The 12th Planet". Jonas Kopp's remix to "Nucleoid" is a deep vamp of circulating darkness for the warehouse set, while Oscar Mulero turns in a dubby, liquid-coated production of throbbing bass frequencies when reworking "Massless Particle". The digital version of this EP presents two bonus remixes and the first comes from Dark Esser's Tripeo alias with an edit of "Dronid". It's both booming and calm while Mulero provides a second subterranean option of "Massless Particle". Tripeo's official remix of "Parallel Computing" completes the EP with a combination of bleep and chime sequences wavering on top of watery basslines and industrial atmospheres. Something here for every techno DJ.

Review: Last year, Shifted owned techno with numerous 12"s under a variety of aliases complementing his curatorial efforts at the head of Avian and of course Crossed Paths, his debut album for Mote Evolver. In turns spooky, bleak and hypnotic, full of dub techno attitude, post-minimal crackle and droning rhythms, it made quite an impression. This follow-up for Bed of Nails treads a similar path, flitting between droning soundscapes, unsettling grooves and intense, murky compositions. While there are tougher, dancefloor-centric workouts (see title track "Under A Single Banner", "Pulse Incomplete" and "Burning Tyres"), these come cloaked in a murky fog of clandestine atmospherics. It feels like the unheard soundtrack to a black and white documentary on urban decay, fronted by a paranoid insomniac. It is, then, both unsettling and quietly impressive.

Review: For the third release on his label, the Berghain resident has tapped fellow Berlin dweller Thomas Hessler. The similarities don't end there and Perception shares many of the same qualities as Fengler's own productions. "Stratosphere" evolves from lithe break beats into a dark and grungy bass that eventually morphs into a squealing morass. "Consequence" is dance floor based but understated, with a pulsing bass and an intricate web of percussion throughout, while the title track pushes in the opposite direction. Underscored by concrete block beats and rickety percussion, it features a spiraling acid line. Finally, as is also Fengler's wont, Hessler delivers "Distance", a dramatic, sensuous ambient piece of mood music.

Review: Bubbletease Communications' releases are defiantly infrequent, reflecting boss man Maurice Fulton's desire to only release personal projects and those he's somehow had a hand in. Given Fulton's track record, this approach guarantees a high quality threshold; in truth, Bubbletease releases are rarely less than excellent. This four-tracker from Tokyo-based DJ Nori, co-produced by Fulton, is predictably impressive. There's a touch of melancholic, acid-flecked stargazing in the shape of "Spaceg" (all heady synth melodies, fuzzy bass and 808 cowbells), some out-there, beatless space calypso (the unwieldy "We Don't Know"), and a mighty chunk of Syclops-ish wonk-jack ("80s Drugs"). Oh, and a moody, Detroit-influenced Fulton remix of "Happy Sunday" that breaks into a space disco jam near the end.

Review: MOS Deep travel into the uncharted waters of Glasgow on their latest release, securing The Haggis Trap from rising production talent Stephen Lopkin. Some four tracks deep, this EP sees an approach seems perfectly in line with Aroy Dee's label. Take for example "The Haggis Trap" which fluctuates superbly between moments of calm and acid drenched chaos or the superb hi tech jazz stylings of "Catherine's Track". Meanwhile, the superbly titled "Let's All Talk About Me" shows Lopkin can lay down dusty kicks with the best of them whilst "Mugs Alley" expertly demonstrates his talent for melody.

Review: More brain-melting techno from Rrose on the producer's Eaux label - and if you take the label's other releases into account: you've been warned. "Pentagons" is a gurgling self-modulating monster of climbing tones and destroyed frequencies - think Kevin Gorman's "7am Stepper" on a brutal overdose of steroids, while "Ammonia" sees Rrose return to the Sandwell District sound we all fell in love with in 2011, only cultivated further. Completing this monolithic release is the acid-tripping "Mirror", a minimal (by Rrose standards), resonance-fuelled trip down the rabbit hole every clubber should experience every now and then. Donato Dozzy eat your heart out!

Review: Remarkably, it's been 11 years since Leipzig-based minimal techno producer Marko Furstenberg released his debut album, Gesamtlaufzeit. While he's been pottering away releasing singles ever since, Ghosts from the Past marks a welcome return to the full-length format. Like its' predecessor, it delivers a range of smooth, warm, hypnotic and dub-influenced techno missives, high on tactile textures and low on crusty textures. The result is a set rippling with intoxicating grooves, soft-focus rhythms, fluttering chords and woozy late night electronics. Wisely, Furstenberg inserts a number of sublime downtempo interludes to break up the flow a little, with the beautiful "Piano" standing out.

Review: The hotly tipped Golden Pudel resident Helena Hauff joins forces with Andreas Gehm for a release on The Exaltics label. Unlike much of the output on Solar One, this four-tracker ignores electro in favour of a more malevolent sound. "Rupture" sets the tone for what is to come, its grainy beats and heavy claps marking out the relentless rhythm track approach that both artists have decided on. However, by the next track, "The Purely Painful Confrontation Of Opposites" it becomes clear that the duo want to fry their audience's brains with the most aggressive 303s since DJ Skull. "HKX" is just as punishing and "Solar Two" ends the split release with malevolent, pounding acid-fuelled beats.

Review: Amsterdam's Field Records is hardly renowned for its productivity; this compilation of music from the label's growing roster of artists - simply titled "Collection" - is only the imprint's 12th release since it launched in 2008. Given the renowned quality of their deep, woozy, Detroit-influenced offerings, that's something of a shame. Still, this is a real bonus for anyone turned on by their winding ambience, stargazing IDM, crackly minimal and floor-friendly Motor City style techno. Highlights include the surging analogue techno pulse of Viski's "A Star In Your Head", the bubbling, immersive ambience of SYS's "Radius", and the retro-futurist fun of Resoe's "Outer Dimension", but it's all pretty tasty.

Review: Sims and Degiorgio's Machine parties have reinvigorated London's techno scene and it's fair to say that the label is having a similar effect. At a time when their peers have either fallen into a minimal hole or are rediscovering their hastily assembled Goth pasts, the duo keep their heads down and focused on making deadly techno. The title track comes from Sims' studio and is a driving, filtered beast fuelled by razor sharp percussion. On "Strike 2", Sims notches up the pressure, with dark droning pulses joining the rhythmic heaviness. Degiorgio also acquits himself well; "Dark Fire" is like a distant cousin to "Strike 2", covered in splurging acid lines and ticking percussion, while "Dread" is led by tough drums and a brooding hoover bassline.
