Review: Hot on the heels of a fine new version of Truncate's 2014 single "7_1" comes this fresh EP of dancefloor dynamite from David Flores's best-known project. Appearing on James Ruskin's long-running Blueprint label for the very first time, Flores kicks things off with the no-nonsense techno roller that is "Terminal 5", a dark, brooding foray into pitch-black techno territory typical of the British label's output. "Process" is similarly minded but slightly more positive in outlook, with mildly foreboding electronics and a repeated vocal sample riding a rubbery techno groove. "Tribal Tool", an exercise in drum machine percussion and dense African drums, completes a rock solid package.

Review: Nost is Ellen Allien's seventh studio album, and it's the first one since 2010's Dust to focus on the dance floor. As each track demonstrates, this is the place where the Berlin DJ really belongs. The album begins with the rolling groove, pitch-bent male vocal and eerie synths of "Mind Journey" and the queasy bass of "Innocence", before Allien opts for a more raw option, audible on the stab-heavy "Jack My Ass" and "Call Me", which unfolds to rolling sabres and air-raid sirens. Unlike some of her previous albums, there is no high concept on Nost - as the firing, building techno of "Mma" shows, it is simply a collection of killer club tracks.

Review: Dutch party crew/ label Dekmantel has achieved more in the past decade than most labels, and that they are able to call on such a heavyweight line-up for the third installment of their celebratory series is evidence of this fact. The release starts with the steely drums and mournful, rainy day pianos of Levon Vincent's "UK Spring Vibes" - which is a rare contribution from the US artist outside of his Novel Sound label - and continues with the fist-punching acidic sweeps of Legowelt's "Blue Austral Techno". Shifting the focus back to the other side of the Atlantic, Joey Anderson weighs in with the spooky, swirling synths and understated "Opened Gate", while Danish artist Central rounds off the EP with the jazzy abstractions of "Six Five Two".

Review: The debut release on Yan Cook's new label sees the Ukraine hotshot in flying form. The title track is a relentless, tunneling workout, hypnotic and banging at the same time. On "Grey Layers", he uses a similar approach, but drops the tempo. Bringing rasping percussion to the fore, the track resounds to insistent stabs. Then Cook delivers two unexpected tracks; "Falcon" is tough and banging, thanks to its razor-sharp percussio, but it appears to sample an old rave track. A further surprise is audible on "Twisted"; favouring a stepping rhythm, he fuses it with a clanging, grainy bass and reversed filters to create a highly distinctive track.

Review: German producer Johannes Volk runs the Lifeworld and Exploration imprints. On this new EP for Belgian techno imprint Token, he firmly wears his old school influences on his sleeve. This EP being a dedication to sorts to the hypnotic polyrhythms from the late nineties and early noughties. "Designing Evolution" creates some basic trance induction with its complex layers of steel drums, bongos and syncopated 909 hats all working in wonderful unison like early James Ruskin. The bleepy bell tones and sonar qualities of "Escapism" create wonderful style of suspense over a furious warehouse groove. "Cosmic Clockwork" is the EPs true standout which is reminiscent of Jeff Mills and Oliver Ho's finest moments on Purpose Maker or Meta respectively.

Review: Ovum owner Josh Wink has long been associated with the 303 sound, and has successfully teased unexpected shapes and styles from the acid box (witness "I Am Ready", "Don't Laugh" and "Higher State of Consciousness"). On this occasion, he opts for a straighter but no less effective approach, as wired acid lines and the signature pitch-bent Wink vocal sample unfold over firing snares. The "Resist-Apella" version sees him opt for a more stripped back version, while on Truncate's remixes, the dominant acid line turns into a bleeding, gurgling life-form, supported by the kind of linear, lead weight rhythm that the US producer has become synonymous with.

Review: Belt is Kopp's second artist album for Tresor and embodies an aesthetic that has long been synonymous with the German label. With echoes of James Ruskin and Surgeon's late 90s / early 00s work for Tresor, Photon Belt has no shortage of tough, linear techno, audible on tracks like the percussive "Galactic Core" and "Aile". There is also another side to Kopp's work, expressed on the atmospheric ambience of "Electrons Splitting" and "Taygeta", and the album also covers the middle ground; this is articulated most impressively on the stripped back, stepping "Bridge To The Stars" and the hypnotic, wiry pusles of "Projections From Alcyone."

Played by: OPTICIAN
Review: DJ duo Audiojack return to their Gruuv label with a killer house release. The title track is a classic deep affair; based on a wiry but driving rhythm and rasping percussion, it features sensuous melodies and a ponderous, seductive female vocal. "On The Road" is closer in sound to classic 20/20 Vision, with the pair deploying a detuned riff and an organ sequence over a tough, driving rhythm. Reset Robot turns "Senses" into a deep techno track, with chiming chords and a linear groove underpinning the original version's vocal sample, while on the Dubspeeka version of the same track, a more understated, stripped back approach prevails.

Review: Big Miz left the cherished bosom of the Dixon Avenue Basement Jams crew to guest on friend Wheelman's new Stereotone label. Here he returns to DABJ with his second solo single. Title track "The Bomb" is something of a killer, with Miz lacing a bouncy, funk-fuelled drum machine rhythm with wild but jazzy synth lines, warehouse-friendly stabs and bleep style electronics. Elsewhere, "Sponk 900" is a breathless, ghetto-house inspired slammer, while "You Lose" is a raw and wonky fusion of noisy but funky electronics and thrusting machine drums. "Break The Law", a more hypnotic but no less guttural jack-track reminiscent of early 2000s Chicago tech-house, completes a fine package.

Review: Different Shapes & Sizes is a new, three part series of EPs from Berlin resident Spencer Parker forthcoming on his Work Them Records imprint over the next few months. Conceived as a neat way of showcasing Parker's love for different shades of house and techno, The third installment takes a walk through the Rekids artist's love for the subtle differences in the genres he tends to focus on in most in his sets. "Size Information" sees Spencer do his tribute to the loopy/steely sounds of early '90s techno by Jeff Mills and Regis, a meticulous, noisy and overdriven 808 drum track/DJ tool is in order on "Shape Fascination" while "Size Devotion" hammers the message home in thunderous fashion on this fierce warehouse techno monster full of wobbly metallic textures.

Review: The first "Convenience Trap" track on this release is reminiscent of "As You Breathe Here Now", Surgeon's contribution to his split 2012 release on Semantica with Skirt. Like that track, the first "Trap" is moody and mysterious, with hypnotic filters unraveling over a rolling groove and featuring lithe, snappy percussion. Its overall mood is in stark contrast to the second and third "Trap". There, Surgeon does what he excels at; namely fusing bleak synths with distorted kicks, relentless percussive bursts and bleeps so malevolent they'll make your skin crawl. The fourth and final installment is less abrasive, but its gut-busting bass and high-pitched tones still pack an intense punch.

His prior releases on Clubwerks, Soul Notes and Boysnoize Records have been supported by some of the biggest names in techno. His mission with the Deapmash project is simply to provide bangers to ravers and DJs: and it's safe to say that's mission accomplished. On "Halcyon" he deconstructs rave techno into new forms and to interesting effect, while on "Solar 909" he teams up with Benjamin Damage for a furious broken beat techno workout that blows the bloody doors off!

Review: The may sound like an obscure US baseball team, but in reality, Boston 168 make some of the darkest techno around. Issued on Dustin Zahn's Enemy label, 90s Space starts with the title track's grimy acid and ghostly, textured synths. This theme continues on "Interstellar", with the Italian pair fusing gurgling 303s with outer space bleeps, doubled up claps and the kind of tunneling, hypnotic groove that Sandwell District used to specialize in. The final track, "Orbit", is the deepest, with one of the duo's 303 lines submersed in sub-aquatic synths - but their driving rhythm and firing percussion are never too far away.

Review: It's that time again where Dixon, Kristian Beyer and Frank Wiedemann serve up another edition of their Secret Weapons series which always lives up to its name; just they aren't that secret anymore thankfully! As always the Innervisions camp present a real mix up of names from across the board of house and techno and there's some pleasant surprises once again. Starting off with Belgian tech house heroes Raw District with the brooding and suspense filled "From The Inside" which is the kind of track you could really imagine Dixon playing to a festival crowd. Berlin legend Oliver Deutschmann (Falkplatz/Vidab) with the dreamy and hypnotic "Control" was great too. Elsewhere there's Southern German merchant of dark journey tracks Tim Engelhardt representing the new garde (alongside Bog) with "No More Words" featuring some wonky synth leads and minimal techno legend Marc Houle with the cheeky retro EBM jack of "Tomboyz". Honourable mention to the Valence/Delft affiliated GoldFfinch with the tough reductionist techno jam "The Hidden"

Review: British techno stalwart Luke Slater is now two decades into his ongoing Planetary Assault Systems adventures. To celebrate, he's handed over tracks recorded over the last 20 years to a hand picked group of remixers. It's a faultlessly floor-focused affair, with Lucy, Steve Bicknell, Function and Slam - whose acid-fired re-make of "Temporary Suspension" is an album highlight - all delivering typically no-nonsense interpretations of Slater's tracks. The producer himself delivers a handful of 'live edits' - versions created for his live shows - while Detroit legends Octave One smother "Booster" in classic Motor City melodies and the most positive of synthesizer refrains.

Review: Bitter Music is Ali Wells's third studio album and manages the rare feat of combining experimentation with a focus on the dance floor. It means that the husky, breathy vocals and found sound ambience of "Exit" and the spooky tones of "Wax Apple" both sit next to the panel-beating techno of "Unelected" - possibly another one of Wells' political references - the eerie, rumbling drums of "Chatter" and the low slung menace of "I Just Can't Win". On other occasions, Wells articulates his ability to straddle both worlds in one arrangement, audible on the deeply disturbing shrieks of Aja Ireland over the gnarly rhythm of "Spit" or the tape dub cut up groove of "Rat Run". Ali Wells has matured as an artist but as Bitter Music shows, in the process he has lost none of his bile-laced anger.

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: Johannes Heil is of Berlin's (not to mention techno in general's) most underrated heroes. This workhorse has been responsible for some seminal releases in the last twenty years. The obvious ones being his early releases on Kanzleramt through to Anthony Rother's Datapunk and of course Len Faki's Figure; where some of his most powerful output of late has come courtesy of. Since launching his own Exile imprint with Markus Suckut, Heil has further honed his hard hitting yet mesmerising dancefloor journeys. Starting with the brooding hi-octane transporter that is "EXILE 007 A1", he then brings in the power courtesy of the banging and fucntional DJ tool "EXILE 007 B1" which is exactly the kind of stripped back industrial groove Suckut would play at Berghain. Finally "EXILE 007 B2" goes for something deeper and more hypnotic on this clever Millsian style exercise in trance induction. That is until those mad rave sirens come rushing in!

Review: Despite featuring what appears to be a refugee camp viewed from the other side of a fence on its cover, Vatican Shadow's "They Deserve Death" is one of its author Dominc Fernow's most mellow, introspective moments. Its layered guitar textures recall The Durutti Column's eponymous album and early New Order. Shifting the tempo and style for the title track, the author surprises again with what sounds like his approximation of jacking Chicago house, albeit with a man groaning away in the background. Completing what is one of Fernow's most unpredictable releases is the tunneling techno groove and layered, distant shrieks of "Weapons Inspection".

Review: 3KZ is a collaboration between Z.I.P.P.O and Kalean, a partnership which already this year has yielded the Parallel Reflections album. Now the pair makes an impressive debut on Darko Esser's label. The title track is a powerful purist techno affair, featuring steely percussion and rhythms, coupled with dramatic synth sweeps. "Nature of Motion" is deeper and more musical, with warm keys unraveling against a gurgling groove. On "Circles", the pair flex their dance floor muscle, as an insistent, driving arrangement is combined with eerie synth loops, while "Times" concludes this club EP with a rolling, atmospheric groove that has echoes of classic Vince Watson.

Review: Alicante has released on high-profile labels like Soma and Cocoon - the latter home to a 2013 DJ mix from the Italian - so it's no surprise that Adam Beyer's imprint has snapped up a release. Awakened is a diverse affair: at one end of the spectrum there's the minimal, tranced out title track, while at the other there's "Senses" and "Apogeo". Drumcode fans will relish the understated but relentless rolling groove of both of these tracks, which unfold to snappy percussion and euphoria inducing snare rolls. However, the real highlight here is "Times". Starting off as hypnotic, metallic track, it morphs into a melodic, epic affair that showcases Alicante's musical side

Traffic - (6:20) 125 BPM

Review: After a series of releases on Minus and Cocoon, Julian Jeweil finally makes the transition to that other great big room label, Drumcode. However, the title track is not typical of the sound of Adam Beyer's label and revolves around dense, rough percussion, heavy chord stabs and buzzing acid lines, topped off with decidedly old school drum rolls. "Blue" is also somewhat atypical and sees the French producer deploy a killer ebm-style bass and synth melodies that wouldn't sund out of place on an Italo record. "Venice" is more in line with the Drumcode sound as the French producer drops a rolling, tracky groove, replete with clicking percussion and chopped up vocal samples, while "Traffic" resonates to a similar, loopy arrangement and hiccupping vocals.

Review: Valencia's Daniel Kyo is a well respected artist in the underground electronica scene, with over fifty pieces of work released since producing from only seventeen years old and having lived surrounded by music from an early age. He arrives next on the Dutch Bordello A Parigi imprint with four tracks showcasing his hometown's synthesizer traditions. "Evanescence" is a coldwave/synthpop journey for eyeliner and fishnet clad new romantics while the classic groove of "Echoman" calls to mind the early EBM of Front 242. Finally "Wrong Way" does neon-lit retro house in fine fashion and in a similar way to the likes of Tuff City Kids. An EP of electronic elegance and robust proportions.

Next "Bil'am's Donkey" is a restrained and melodic tool that is perfect to create a transition for DJ sets while "Oak Ridge Capsule" hammers the message home in style on this atmospheric hypnotic techno journey.

In Yer Face (Bicep Acid dub) - (6:26) 120 BPM
from $1.94
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: When it comes to no-nonsense, heads-down techno, few labels can match Bek Audio. While it has released material by Chicago legends DJ Rush and Lester Fitzpatrick, as well as Mark Broom and Slam, for its 30th release its owner, Gary Beck is back in the saddle. The title track is an unstoppable juggernaut that comprises a driving funk-bass, disco loops and sassy vocal samples. "Shadow Bounce" is more typical Beck, with a hammering central rhythm undercutting a noisy riff and a choppy vocal stab. "Bicycle Wheel" sees the Scottish producer deliver a lighter, party techno looper, while expect the catchy vocals and loopy funk of "Fantasy Stomp" to compete with "Famoo Funk" for attention.

Theme From Q - (7:20) 123 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
from $1.94
Review: The fourth installment on Objekt's self-titled label has been one of the most eagerly awaited releases of 2017. So is it worth the wait? "Needle & Thread" is an atmospheric, mesmerizing stepper, with the UK producer's lithe, snappy drums underpinning swirling synths, hallucinogenic keyboard squiggles and deft filter action. However, "Theme from Q" is the track that has been praised by all. A tribute to the now shut Basement Q club, it sees TJ Hertz set a dinky house keyboard line to hiccuping drums, pressure cooker builds and a meaty bass to create the most distinctive break beat techno track since Kevin Saunderson's Reese project. On this rare occasion, the hype has been justified.

Review: The second installment in the Sulk Magic series features more left of centre dance floor tracks. Freudenthal's "Rapax Apicem" sets the tone with an off-beat disco track that moves from detuned riffs into a gradual siren crescendo over a staccato rhythm. Kieran Holden's "3 Or Four' is a more conventional disco groover - albeit one laced in 303s - but it's only a brief break from the release's weird and wonderful sound. In:State pursues a tripped out acid direction on the aptly named "Spacer"; Dawad and Mokic's "Furious" is low-sling ebm workout and best of all, Clandestino's "Simpatico" sounds like a trippy take on Amnesia's new beat classic, "Ibiza".

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: Since debuting on Token five years ago, CTRLS has established himself as a distinctive voice in techno. Formerly a drum'n'bass artist, his ninth release for Kr!z' label refines the complex, rhythmic techno sound he has made his own. "The Shortest Path" kick starts the EP with a clanging, metallic groove, populated by shards of spiky percussion and set at a furious pace. "Rush Hour" is in a similar vein, but its beats are harder and grittier. As the release progresses, the Danish producer reveals a different side; "Crash" has an eerie, mysterious edge but is based on panel beating kicks, while "Highway" sees him explore a more conventional minimal sound. Add in two locked grooves and you've got another high-impact, CTRLS release.

Review: Steven de Peven is Amsterdamer Awanto 3, a staple of local imprints Rush Hour and Dekmantel since 2010 (not to mention moonlighting as Red Nose District) who presents his new LP Gargamel, This is his second full length since 2014's Opel Mantra. Starting off this great EP is the single "Azrael" which features usual studio partner Darling on this deep nu-disco cut, as does the booming and lo-slung bass exercise "Hooli Goose". Our personal highlights were the spooky, rusty and dusted down jack of "This Is When We Met" (which will really remind you of that notorious villain from the Smurfs that the album is named after) or the deep and minimal electro groove of "Thick" which features another local legend in the form of Klakson's inimitable Dexter. Awanto 3 likes his samples vibrant, his drums wobbly and his synths sweaty as a Detroit summer breeze. The MPC wizard returns!
