Pocket Piano (breakbeat mix) - (6:08) 83 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
from $1.49
Review: Strahil Velchev has been a lot of places in his prolific career thus far, but he's never been to Running Back before. With the title track the Hungarian production power house steps up to the plate with a surefire peak time rocker, piling on thick electro synth lines and plenty of techno tension built for the large-scale experience. "Diversion" is no less catchy even if its temperament is far sunnier, working that playful edge that has always accompanied Kink tracks, but then "Pocket Piano (Breakbeat Mix)" throws a curveball in the shape of an old-skool breakbeat groove colliding with warm and fluffy arpeggios before opening up into a joyous piano rave experience.

Review: There are few house producers as innovative or adventurous as Maurice Fulton and on his latest Boof album, he shows just how far-out he can get. "Tomoko's O" is an easy-listening affair with searing guitars and cosmic keys, while in contrast, "Just On The Swings" sees Fulton experiment with Cameo-style electro funk. These are just two of the many different moods that Boof embraces. On the title track, Fulton veers into white noise ambience and "Cat Soulcat Strut" is a tasty boogie / jazz-funk affair. There are also a few nods to Fulton's dance floor approach, especially on the deep techno "Backlash", but as the mellow "Birgit Boogie" and the jittery pianos of "Emi's M" demonstrate, this is as cosmic as a trip to Mars and back.

from $1.49
Review: German producer Nick Hoppner has long been part of the Ostgut Ton family, releasing his first material for the imprint way back in 2007. Here he finally delivers his debut album, Folk, a set whose title hints at the warmth of his attractive, melodious and often sumptuous blends of atmospheric techno, deep house and organic-sounding instrumentation. At its' best, the album is simply superb, delivering cuts that feel equally at home seeping from home stereo systems as booming club sound systems. In this category we'd put stand outs "Come Closer", the classic sounding "Out Of", and the dub techno inspired basement hypnotism of "Rising Overheads". It is, though, all good, with Hoppner proving adept at the very specific demands of the album format.

Review: In the three years since his last full-length outing, Personality, Scuba's stock has continued to rise, nudging him further towards to higher echelons of DJ culture. The fact that he now plays colossal rooms and festival headline slots can be heard in the more dancefloor-minded material on Claustrophobia. While some of the best material is more downtenpo and circumspect - see the heady ambience of "Transcience", the spinetingling wooziness of "All I Think About Is Death" and the immersive dubstep of "Needle Phobia" - it's the stripped-back techno throb of "PCP", hissing rhythms of "Television" and the progressive house inspired hedonism of "Why You Feel So Low" that will get most attention.

Sicko by Rex The Dog on Kompakt Germany Cue Track
Korgasmatron - (7:15) 121 BPM
from $1.49
Review: Back in the mid 2000s, Jake 'Rex The Dog' Williams was touted for future greatness on the back of a string of singles that joined the dots between Kraftwerk, synth-pop, '80s electro and melodious nu-disco. Somewhere along the way, he lost his mojo, and the releases began to dry up. Happily, Sicko - his first single for two years - sees him back at his imaginative, mesmerising best. The title track bobs and weaves brilliantly, lacing trippy, stuttering electronics and yearning chords on top of a sparse, beatbox electro-influenced Balearic house groove. "Korgasmatron" is arguably even better, with Williams brilliantly fusing dirty, bubbling bottom-end electronics and warped acid lines with a killer, rave style vocal hook.

from $1.49
Review: After six years spent teasing and titillating with a steady stream of high value singles, David Kennedy is finally ready to release his debut full-length under the now familiar Pearson Sound alias. The first artist album to appear on the Hessle Audio imprint he co-founded with Pangaea and Ben UFO, Pearson Sound is a surprisingly sparse and otherworldly affair. Intriguingly, Kennedy's usual twisted, dubbed-out analogue rhythms largely take a back seat, with moments of tough dancefloor abandon (see "Rubber Tree" and the tipsy "Headless") playing second fiddle to stripped-back synth-scapes and otherworldly ambience. It's striking on first listen, and only gets more impressive with repeat listens

from $1.49
Review: California's foremost John Candy lookalike Vin Sol has enjoyed a productive couple of years, delivering well-received solo and collaborative releases (mostly alongside regular sparring partner Matrixxman) for Unknown To The Unknown and his own So Wavey imprint. Here he pops up on Clone's Jack For Daze offshoot with four blasts of dancefloor-centric machine music. "Off The Chain" expertly blends the energy of original Chicago jack with metallic electronics and a touch of deep house warmth, while the sweatier "Sox" makes merry with restless percussive builds and a nagging electro hook. "House Freaks" sounds like a long lost Jungle Wonz classic, while "Trac" offers some stripped-back drum machine abuse for charged-up late night 'floors.

Review: Tensal is the personal project of Hector Sandoval, one half of legendary Spanish techno duo Exium. This is the third release for his burgeoning alias and label and it's as greyscale and no-nonsense as you would hope. This seven-track release, inclusive of a digital bonus, is designed to fuel the long-winded club night somewhere in Europe, and each track throbs with maximum four-to-the floor force. If techno from the likes of Token and Modularz, and of course Pole Group, is your thing, you know what to do.

Review: Matias Aguayo's Comeme label has long been a source of decidedly different electronic music - house and techno variously influenced by South American rhythms, post-punk disco, new wave and the deeper side of futurist synth-pop. This fourth label compilation confirms the imprint's unique vision, gathering 10 fine tracks and remixes from the likes of Ana Helder, Lena Wilikens, Sano and Carisma. Highlights come thick and fast, from the psychedelic flutes and foreboding, low-slung rhythms of Borusiade's remix of Helder's "Track Con Flute" and Aguayo's deliciously percissive re-make of Wilikens' "Howlin Lupus", to the early Orbital chords and Intelligent techno rhythms of RRoxymore's "D-Memory".

Review: Gary Beck continues the fine Glasgow techno tradition pioneered by Rubadub and Slam on "Backward", the opening track on this split release. Tribal drums cascade over a rolling rhythm and in the middle of it all, a vocal sample morphs into a hypnotic Afro chant. "Data Flux", Beck's collaboration with techno veteran Mark Broom, is just as rewarding, only on this occasion, the kicks are tougher and more distorted. Bek 022 also gives a platform to new artists - with Hans Bouffmyhre & Kyle Geiger's "Inwards" delivering a flurry of tough kicks and ear-shredding sirens - and to seasoned artists the Space DJz, whose raucous "Double Zero" brings a distorted drum-led end to the release.

Review: Woof! If you are looking for a massive slab of techno, you won't find anything as hefty as Aphelion. A package of tracks from Belgian label Token, Aphelion is essentially a primer for the best in contemporary techno, featuring contributions from Surgeon, Rodhad, James Ruskin, Karenn and Planetary Assault System alongside some label regulars. You will have probably already heard "Fixed Action Pattern" from Surgeon - it's possibly one of this year's finest techno tracks - but it's got some stiff competition here with Ruskin in particularly funked up form on "No Trace". Aphelion is a real statement and proof of Token's current rank as a European techno powerhouse alongside the likes of Delsin and Ostgut Ton.

Artesian Well - (6:22) 87 BPM
from $1.49
Review: For their first missive of 2015, legendary German techno label Tresor has turned to two French producers; veteran DJ Deep and fast-rising youngster Roman Poncet. It's the duo's first collaboration, and Hydraulic Pressure shows real potential. They begin by unveiling "Hydraulic Jack", an undulating chunk of hustling loop techno built around fluid synthesizer riffs, starry electronics and thumping bottom end. "Hydraulic Pump" offers an alternative take on the same track, with bumpier percussion and relentless handclaps offering the perfect accompaniment to the headline synth refrain. Finally, "Artesian Well" eschews the fearless pump of techno altogether, instead delivering a yearning, eyes-closed slice of shimmering ambience built around trippy vocal samples and that now familiar synthesizer sequence.

Review: Australia's Balance Music is known for its quality mixes by the very finest in the underground music circuit. With previous compilations by the likes of New York's Danny Tenaglia, Deetron and Funk D'Void, among others, this is as close to a Fabric mix as you can get without those shiny tin cases. Ex-minimal legend turned all-out techno queen Magda steps up for number 27 in the series, and it's nothing but vibes on this one. Amalgamating shreds of stripped back techno - Marcel Dettmann, DVS1, Samuli Kemppi - together with newer, more underground sounds from some of the most cutting-edge labels around - Marco Bernardi's Sandman project, TTT's Minor Science, XDB and Shackleton - the Minus legend shows why she's still one of the best in the game and a true expert at evolving her aesthetic. A great mix, dig in.

Review: The Slam duo are certified masters of European techno, never afraid to unleash their deadly brand of steely-eyed techno on us through their own Soma imprint. This time the Scottish pair return merely as hosts, giving up their tracks from a tight three-pronged remix EP by some of the industry's best and brightest talents. Gary Beck - a hugely underrated name in the minimal / techno sphere - injects his trademark style on "Catacoustics", whereas Clouds go for a break-led approach on their revamp of "Resolved", and "Cirklon Bells" is remixed by Jeroen Search into a hypnotic, bleeped-out banger for the floor. Nasty.

Review: And so the Token juggernaut continues, slaying all before it with some of the best club techno you are likely to find right now. Terra Incognita sees Spanish producer Tadeo debut on the label after a fine succession of releases in 2014 and at six tracks long Miguel Sar takes the chance to really explore his range. "Requiem" offers a foreboding beatless opener that is rife with tension, whilst "Deep Space" explores similar territory to the Something from the Sky series by Jeff Mills. From here Tadeo runs through various shades of dancefloor techno with the mind bending "Apollo 7" our pick!

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: Breakbeats, rave stabs, air raid sirens, clashing cymbal fills and looped crowd noise. With his South London mix to "Children Of The E" Radio Slave throws down more '90s rave references you can poke a sweaty glow stick at. For a slightly subdued alternative, and something that could easily nestle its way into a circa-2014 deep house or techno set, is "Children Of The E (North London mix)", a track that brims with a bleep-generation aesthetic made to fit the tastes of today that won't fall into the waste bin of irrelevant breaks. It's been a while since Radio Slave was on Running Back and he's really brought the rave!

Review: The Berlin-based label has released a huge volume of music over the past half-decade, but the fifth instalment of its 5 Years series throws up more surprises. While Sendai's dark drones and stepping rhythm on "Inverse Array" is par for the course, Donato Dozzy squeezes new possibilities from his sound on "OZ Taped". Here, the rhythm is slinky and the pulses lap against his trancey synths like dark waves against a harbour wall. Label owner Lucy provides the biggest surprise on "Rema Rema Canoero ". Clocking in at almost twelve minutes, its droning textures are supported by a shuffling, percussive rhythm that calls to mind Surgeon's "As You Breathe Here Now" on Semantica from a few years ago.

Review: Having brought countless obscure tracks from the '80s to our attention through their mix CDs and club nights, Optimo now turn their attention, albeit temporarily, to the decade of drums, the 90s. While the later part of the 1990s saw dull tribal house and one-note loop techno monotony prevail, this split release shows that the use of heavy drums wasn't always tedious. On "The Way Out Is The Way", Norwegian-English duo Illumination deliver three minutes' worth of searing bass and epic keys before the filtered drums roll in, while Mr Marvin's "I Want You" is straighter percussive rhythm although its stuttering vocal sample makes it stand out. Best of all though is Fuel's "Rigid", a panning, stomping affair with traces of Chicago's ghetto sound.

Review: Milos Martinov follows last year's Misfit debut release on Mord with this equally dark record. "Trema" is exactly the kind of dense, rolling techno groove that you'd expect to hear on Bas Mooy's label, with grainy drums and a juggernaut rhythm prevailing. Clouds' remix ramps up the pressure further, a heavy, loopy affair that could be Ben Sims on steroids, while the label owner delivers a pounding, abrasive take on "Kontrola". However, it's the original version of this track that really stands out; less direct and upfront than the other tracks, it still captures the listener's attention thanks to its furious, lurching rhythm and disturbed, high-pitched vocal samples.

Review: Fans of L.I.E.S. couldn't have failed to notice the Russian Torrent Versions label, a highly limited vinyl-only operation that shares many artists with Ron Morelli's imprint. While we've yet to prove a direct link between the two labels, the latest piece of compelling evidence comes in the shape of this L.I.E.S White Label from NGLY, an anonymous artist who recently debuted on the Russian Torrent Versions label. Fans of dank basement techno will be in their element with this record, with "Service Cost HH2" offering a muddy jack track featuring an uncommonly melodic touch, but "Some Relationships" offers a track in more of a submerged experimental hip hop mould. On the flip, "Speechless Tape" is a dark 303-led track whose copious reverb and spoken word vocal sample puts it somewhere between classic synthwave and acid, while "I Don't HAve A Soul" harks back to classic Chi house sounds, albeit glimpsed through that gauzy L.I.E.S. filter. As always, copies are limited!

Review: Juan-Pablo Pfirter is one of the most individualistic voices in modern underground techno and the latest release on his own label bears testament to this claim. It starts with the droning textures of "Otras Dimensiones", which swirls and lifts like fog on a wintry morning. The title track uses a similar sound design, but tacks it to hissing, bristling percussion and insistent pulses. Changing tact, "Technalog" and "Casus Belli" both represent a markedly different approach from the Argentinean artist. Industrial-strength rhythms, doubled-up claps and waves of buzzing analogue noise prevail on both tracks, which are far removed from the serene manner in which Message 1 began.

Review: The latest release on Gerd Jansen's label comes from Irish producer John Daly. This number-themed four-tracker marks a shift in style for Daly, stripped of his trademark melodies in favour of a tougher dance floor approach. "11" sets the tone for the release with furious bursts of percussion, a dank acid line and menacing bass tones. "51" is in a similar vein, but here it sounds like Daly is channelling the darker end of Nu Groove's back catalogue as an eerie synth line unravels over tight claps and crashing cymbals. Meanwhile, both "41" and "2" venture farther into techno sounds, with heavy kicks and snare rolls adding to the intense approach.

Review: Given the rise in popularity of Dance Mania-inspired ghetto-house and ghetto-tech releases over the last couple of years, it was perhaps inevitable that someone would put together a compilation celebrating the label's greatest moments. That it was Strut that did it with Dance Mania Hardcore Traxx: Dance Mania Records 1986-1997 was something of a comfort; Quinton Scott's crate-digging imprint does these kind of history-driven compilations so well. Dance Mania: Ghetto Madness is a second trawl through the archives of the label and features some fifteen cuts of little-known or hard-to-find tracks from the likes of DJ Funk, Paul Johnson, DJ Rush, Jammin' Gerald and Wax Master Maurice (whose bizarre but brilliant "Bounce That Body" is a highlight).

Digweed and Muir meanwhile turn out a dynamic version that bursts out of the speakers with its canny blend of measured tension and thrilling twists.

Review: There are so many attempts to appropriate the sound and spirit of late-'80s Chicago that it is natural to be suspicious of such releases. On this occasion however, German producer Ruede Hagelstein does a fine job. He makes that sound his own on the title track thanks to the use of dramatic chords sweeping in over tight kettle drums and pitched down vocal samples. Fur Coat delivers a harder, faster version, characterised by throbbing, relentless pulses, while Kenny Larkin steals the show with his 'Moogerfooger' version. Slower and less immediate than the other versions, the subtle rhythm and intricate, jazzy flourishes capture the esoteric essence of Detroit techno.

Review: Mystery man Auden drops his second EP on Scuba's Hotflush Recordings, a label now worthy of legendary status in the UK house-bass game, and as expected, it's another four cuts of supreme dancefloor delight and 909-driven goodness. "Lock In" takes a rawer-than-raw percussion and chucks a rather splendid collection of dubbed-out chords over it, whereas "Utopian" breaks the groove down into a half-step head-nodder for the corner dwellers. "Perished" heads back to a 4/4 structure backed with another fine dose of dubby, atmospheric trickery, but it's "Xirox" which receives all the brownie points - imagine an Ed Rush and Optical tune circa '97'that's been slowed-down and reinterpreted for the deep house and techno speed. Ultra slick, ultra sick.

Review: Having already turned more than a few heads with a strong appearance opposite Tuff Sherm on a split disc for Plastic World, Australian producer Cassius Select makes a fully-fledged outing on Unknown To The Unknown with a very savvy blend of sharp-edged club wreckers in line with DJ Haus's own riotous vision of 21st century dance music. "Cross Strut" places the emphasis on clattering percussion locked into a hard funk, while "Crook" lets a few more atmospheric splatters of melody and reverb into the twitchy mix. The ideas come flying thick and fast without losing sight of the dancefloor, just like all good UTTU releases.

from $1.49
Review: CPI may well be an unfamiliar name, but the two artists involved in the project are by no means newcomers. Hivern Discs completists should be more than familiar with Marc Pinol, who has completed the odd remix for the label as well as showing off his knowledge of rare music with some excellent contributions to the highly sought after Hiverned series. His partner in CPI is Hugo Capablanca, a self-described "eternal dilettante" who is best known for the Disco Capablanca label he founded half a decade ago. Given the lack of original productions from Capablanca and Pinol, this CPI project debut in the shape of El Tunel/Proceso makes for compelling listening. Apparently committed to tape over two intense days of recording, "El Tunel" lives up to it's billing as a "15 minute cosmic odyssey" and then some! Complementing it, "Proceso" has more pronounced New Beat leanings and will appeal to fans of the more haywire acid rhythm tracks. Killer remix of the latter track from Comeme artist Barnt too!

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: Originally released back in 2010, Boris Bunnik's debut album as Conforce has stood the test of time. It helps that the type of music and influences that the Dutch producer draws on are timeless, it also has a lot has to do with his flair for production and subtle touch. This combination of skills is audible throughout on the album, but is especially noticeable on the deep electro of "First Impression", where rave whistles appear amid squelchy bass tones or on the acid bleed and warm chords of "Subtraction". Bunnik may be mining well-known tropes and paths, but it is to his credit that he manages to squeeze new shapes and sounds from them, as the ghostly techno groove of "Rare Education" demonstrates.

Review: Girl Unit's alter-ego did some serious damage with the fifth volume of Night Slugs' Club Constructions series back in 2013, and now Hysterics gets reanimated for another four brutal attacks of spine-tingling drum alchemy. "Club Life" wastes no time in spelling out its physical intentions as it pushes and pulls with industrial clout and techno dexterity, whereas "HTRX9" takes a more unusual route through highly strung synths into a spaced-out abstraction of tech house. "Eye Mask" equally places the synths at the forefront with some dazzling juxtapositions of clashing tones atop the supporting beats, while "Empty" makes for a more conventional but equally enchanting sojourn into blissfully soulful deep house territory.
