Review: This is Mord's most ambitious venture to date, with a box set of seven records laying out the Dutch imprint's tough techno agenda. Regulars like UVB and Radial set the tone, with the former dropping brutish kicks and jarring riffs on "Someone Calling Cut" and Radial veering into a pumping direction on "Cru".Label owner Bas Mooy moves the compilation towards a more streamlined approach with the dense, linear Klockworks-like "Owl In Daylight", but Herdersmat also shows that the label has succeeded in attracting some heavyweight international talent; Eomac's "Phisk" is a disorienting rave-flecked stepper and Sleeparchive drops the bleep-heavy bomb that is "Evicted".

from $2.16
Played by: Boys Noize
Review: Acid Bitchez is a collaboration between knob twiddler Juhal Johnny and self-styled 'lyrical miracle' Jessical Jessika. Completing the Finnish connection on this release is Tiga collaborator Jori Hulkkonen, who delivers a devastating version of "Acid". Teasing his Roland until spews out super-squelchy lines, Hulkkonen's tones make for the perfect accompaniment to Jessika's sleazy narrative. Joeski steers the good ship 303 in a more tribal house direction, while Zia's take focuses on a steely, driving techno approach. General Ludd's interpretation is the most different, with a focus on rolling breaks and swampy subs, but it cannot compare to Hulkkonen's 303-heavy take.

Review: You have to admire Ostgut Ton's ambition. While celebrating a decade in dance music with a compilation of exclusive, previously unheard music is now standard practice amongst leading underground labels, few would have the balls to release it with such a killer tracklisting as Zehn. Across the 30 tracks (count 'em!) you get a who's who of Berghain and Panorama Bar associates delivering a quite outstanding selection of left-of-centre techno and deep European house, with Marcel Dettmann, Boris, Virginia, Steffi, DVS1, Martyn, Tobias and Ben Klock all featuring. Highlights naturally come thick and fast, from the spacey electronics, heady textures and hypnotic rhythms of Function's "DX3 Analog Bass Seq", and the rush-inducing, string-laden house warmth of Matthew Styles' remix of Dinky's "Planes", to the picturesque intelligent techno of Doms & Deykers.

Review: Colin McBean originally rose to prominence as the B-boy member of The Advent, but as this compilation shows, his Mr G project is his most valuable work. The premise behind it is simple but deadly effective; create a rolling groove, bolster it with tough kicks and nagging percussion and throw in some vocal samples to give it an edge. On "Pepsi" and "Did You Know", he impresses with just these elements, with the latter's wailing soul vocal impressing most. On other occasions, he throws a squealing sax and churning chords ( "Jet Black") or acrid acid ("Zam Zam") into the mix, but the result is nearly always the same - peerless DJ tools with a killer punch.

Troop (Galcher Lustwerk remix) - (7:25) 124 BPM
from $2.16
Played by: Felipe Le Conteè
Review: Rekids' first 12" of 2016 comes from a previously untapped talent, Berlin-based producer Peggy Gou. The South Korea-born DJ/producer's sound has been influenced, in part at least, by that of her mentors and piano tutors Nu Guinea (a duo whose releases for Early Sounds have been superb). Certainly, you can hear their tropical take on deep house in opener "Troop", whose Afro-influenced beats combine brilliantly with Gou's humid melodies and beautiful chords. She flips the script slightly on "In Sum", where spacey, Detroit-influenced electronics envelop a snappy deep house rhythm. A fine debut EP is brought to a close by Galcher Lustwerk's remix of "Troop", which takes the track further towards Detroit techno territory via deep space electronics and cymbal-heavy beats.

Deepcore by Locklead on Unknown to the Unknown Cue Track
Take One - (5:38) 136 BPM
from $2.16
Review: Dark designs from Utrecht's Locklead: "Deepcore" sits somewhere between Tim Wright's twisted bass garage of the late '90s and Mr G's rough-edged wonky techno. The result is a track that will work across all styles from techno to UKG. Speaking of UKG, "Diversity" is straight-up heady jacking garage with a steroid-soaked 2-step and a rhythmic hook that's so infectious you should warn your doctor before you make this purchase. Finally "Take One" pays homage to the Bleep era of electronica with just the right amount of detuned rave tones, a chiselled two-step and a walking bassline that's not dissimilar to Zinc's early zeroes UKG output. Immaculate.

Muslimgauze - "Untitled 1985" (Victor Shan/Gerd Janson Morning mix) - (6:35) 125 BPM
from $2.16
Review: According to the label, the late Bryn Jones recorded this untitled track during the mid-80s and used tape loops instead of sampler to create the rolling breaks and rough riffs that comprise "Untitled". Fittingly, Optimo Trax has commissioned Victor Shan and Running Back's Gerd Janson to rework it. The first take, the 'Rave' version, resounds to dark hardcore stabs and similarly tough breaks, while on the 'Morning' take, ponderous pianos and dubbed out claps prevail. While Italian pair Unterspreche drop the ethnic sampling groove of "Flowers from the Lake" on the flip, it feels like an afterthought compared to Muslimgauze's pioneering pre-hardcore.

Review: When it comes to high-powered, contemporary post-dubstep - if there even is such a thing - Denham Audio is one of the finest in the game. This new EP on Heretic is probably amongst his best work, and the opener "Undulate" is pretty much all you need to be sold; it's mean fist of a groove is wrapped so tightly around the bassline that they sound inseparable. "Fractal itself is deeper, more swollen and a bit of a corner-dweller kind of lick, while "Phalanx" strides onto house territories with its 4/4 beat and pounding groove. Dirty remixes to boot from Silas & Snare, and Cloaka & Boxwork - nasty!

Review: This mysterious group have caused a stir thanks to their ability of mixing vocals with throbbing acid tracks. In particular, "Paris Dub", which features Paris Brightledge on vocals, has seen them break through to dance music's mainstream. That track features twice here - the steely drums of the lat-est edit are worth checking - but what's most interesting are the other tracks. "Light Tunnel", with Mutado Pintado on vocals, is a sleazy workout all about wearing black; "Headtrack" shows that Paranoid London are capable of other sounds and is a tough ghetto workout, while "Lovin U", fea-turing DJ Genesis, sees them apply a frazzled bass to new wave vocals. Paranoid London proves that they excel at knocking out 303-heavy club tracks, but it also suggests that this mystery act is capable of making other, less obvious sounds.

from $2.16
Review: The third release on London label Them comes from a local lad, Ansome aka Kieran Whitefield. Despite its somewhat morbid title and artwork, this release centres on raw energy. "Coffin Dodge Rodge" sets the pace with its lunging bass, high-tempo rhythm and roller coaster succession of builds and drops. There's a brief interlude for the nail-scraping noise of "Dragon's Dynamite", but Whitefield excels at making granite-heavy but smartly executed peak time techno. On "Bearded Lady", this finds shape in the form of splintered beats and a rolling, noisy rhythm, while "Fisherman's Fist" allows some light to shine through thanks to its chopped up vocal samples.

Oblivion by Raddhad on 50Weapons Germany Cue Track
Raddhad - "Oblivion" - (7:53) 130 BPM
from $2.16
Review: The penultimate 50 Weapons release pays tribute to the music of its home town, Berlin. Oddly enough, it plays host to the first release on the label by Rodhad. The Dystopian boss delivers "Oblivion", a raw and noisy analogue workout that calls to mind the sonic extremities of Landstrumm and Vogel, realised against a stepping rhythm. However, the real highlight comes from Fjaak. This Berlin trio, who received their break thanks to releases on 50 Weapons, drop "Super Smash". The track's wailing, diva vocal, techy chords and flowing groove may not be the most innovative, but it'll go a long way to ensuring that the future of Berlin techno is safe in Fjaak's hands.

Review: Over the last 14 years, UK techno-funk stalwart Colin McBean has released a vast amount of music under his Mr G alias, for a wide variety of labels; according to Discogs, he's dropped an astonishing 70 12" singles in that time. This two-disc collection of his favourite moments, simply titled Retrospective, is arguably much needed. For the newcomers it offers a neat summary of his particular brand of no-nonsense, sample-heavy techno, where cut-up jazz, disco and soul loops ride thunderous techno rhythms and robust, late night grooves. For the diehards, there's a smattering of new cuts, while occasional fans should revel in the opportunity to savour some of his most hard-to-get jams.

Review: Ben Sims on D'julz' Bass Culture imprint? You better believe it! The Hardgroove head honcho and all round techno legend delivers three cuts of bangin' and dusty house that's full of attitude under his new Ron Bacardi alias. "Rock Your Body" features massive drums and a cavernous bassline this side of Shed or Special Request plus mysterious, crooning vocals; it's wicked! "First Effort" is jacking, funky and a downright loopy workout reminiscent of classic DJ Sneak. "The Money" is more like the Sims we know on this tough and tribal DJ tool that delivers all the funk and 'oomph!' so typical of his sound.

Review: Featuring tracks from their Colt release as well as remixes and some extra material, Update serves as a reminder of why UK duo Alex Jones and Chris Spero aka Dense & Pika are one of the most vital acts in crossover techno. The pair's "Bad Ink" is a tough, bleep-heavy roller that bristles with nervous energy, "Lack of Light" trips the light fantastic with its wild rave stabs and "Crispy Duck" veers towards bass with its stepping rhythm and gut-wrenching subs. Hotflush mainstay George Fitzgerald delivers a breathy but nonetheless driving take on "Colt", while Grain drops a heads-down, banging tribal interpretation of "Airless".

Review: Malmo Sweden's Patrick Siech is back everyone, look out! Following up a great release for Richie Hawtin's seminal m_nus imprint last year collaborating with fellow Swedish techno hero Sebastian Mullaert (of Minilogue fame), he strikes out on his own offering an EP full of restrained yet fierce techno weapons. "Zorro" is dense and furious with sinister sound design lurking in the background which is perfect for building the vibe, but "Lo Clouds" is perfect to transition into the peak time with its adrenalised bass driven groove, industrial textures and sonar melody. "Kloroform" is harsh broken techno with noisy, harsh sound design and dark strings that sounds like early Surgeon while final track "M277" sounds like classic Marcel Dettmann on this flattering tribute. Tip!

Knee On Belly - (6:05) 122 BPM
from $2.16
Review: Ah, it's finally the summer and where would we be without a DJ Koze record to accompany those long, open-air parties? The title track is a lush, string-filled affair that chugs along slowly. It's made all the more trippy by a female vocal whose narrative begins with the claim that 'everyone is experimenting with ecstasy' and who goes on to talk about lies and meditation. If that sounds too cosmic for you, then we recommend that you check out "Knee on Belly". It could be the German artist's version of '90s disco house, but realized against a gentle minimal house backdrop.

Review: Joey Anderson isn't a typical New York house producer. Aligned to the recent wave of artists to come from the city more through personal connections than a common sound, his work also has little relationship with the vocal house or disco legacy of the Big Apple. This disconnect is pronounced on Switch, his follow up to his 2014 debut album, also on Dekmantel. From the balmy ambience of the title track through the droning, visceral techno of "Nabta Playa" and "18 Arms" and the organ riffs and slinky minimalism of "Organ To Dust", Anderson's sophomore album takes a trip down some dark alleys to realise his singular vision.

Review: An instigator returns: Tectonic bossman lays down a sweet-shuffling garage-minded drum arrangement with more than enough space for Rico Dan to do his damage. Wait for the bass to really rip mid-way. As Rico says himself "original badboy business". "No Justice" brings up the rear. A scratchy, spatially dizzying stepper coded with all manner of spooked out designs, it's clear Pinch is in his element right now... Long may this continue.

Review: Glenn Wilson's long-standing hard techno label casts its gaze back to assess some of last year's highlights. Labelling Planet Rhythm as merely an outlet for heads-down tracks is somewhat misleading, and as this compilation shows, some of its best material comes from left of centre. Robert S' "Matos" is a chord-heavy groove with enough attitude to ensure it doesn't sound bland, while Samuli Kemppi drops one of his trademark bleep techno bombs on "Ant On A Rubber Rope". For those who like it harder, there's Giorgio Gigli & Ness' tunnelling "Resin" and Yan Cook's resonating "Shift", but the highlight is Mr G's "Binky's Groove", a loopy house number with the kind of tough beats and insistent vocal sampling that makes Colin McBean unique.

Review: Jimmy Edgar and Truncate sound like an unusual pairing, but on Submission they come together for an inspired collaboration. Over tight claps and a linear groove, a pitched-down robot vocal intones the track's title and the result is like a modern take on classic Dan Bell. Edgar's own version adds little more than an insistent tonal bleep, while Truncate's take is tougher and rougher, the bass drum pushed to the point of distortion and rolling snares crashing in mercilessly. Kris Wadsworth delivers the last remix and turns it into a dusty, deep house jam, led by dubbed out chords and an insistent rhythm.

Review: The foreboding Developer Archive returns with its fifth chapter and as you'd expect, the EP is made up of four wavey techno bleepers tailor-made for floor-filling. From "Body Art" - a steamroller of a cut - to "Precious Time", Developer voices his thoughts across in a techno language, except that his moods differ on each track and although the bulk of the EP is rather bleak and grey-scaled, the sounds on a track like "Metronica" also portray a lighter side to the man's vision. Quality as always, this one's for the techno heads. Most probably supported by the whole Berghain mafia.

from $2.16
Review: It sounds strange to say it, but this is the happiest release that Berghain's in-house label has put out. The title track is full of mournful keys and a pulsing Chicago bass and the groove is positively jaunty. It's hard to imagine how Martyn got to this place, but equally, there is no doubt that this sweet mood suits him. "U1-U8" is more in keeping with the Dutch producer's sound, with haunting chords unfolding over furious break beats, but soon enough, he's back exploring a more contemplative sound and the loose drums and melancholic keyboard solos sound like a freeform version of Smallville/Dial's deep, reflective house.

from $2.16
Review: Having delivered a couple of quietly impressive solo EPs for Keep It Zen and Saft, as well as a highlight of Disco Bloodbath's label as one half of Al Gobi, Ian Blevins pops up on Lovefingers' ESP Institute with a pair of tracks that the LA label claim will "boost your Serotonin levels". Certainly, "Hannibal" is a definite mood enhancer, with bubbling, high-pitched electronic melodies and spacey chords riding a fizzing, Detroit-influenced analogue house groove. "Welcome Aunt Poly" is an altogether deeper and drowsier affair, with rich, stretched-out pads reclining over a shuffling, cowbell-laden rhythm. It feels like the sort of track that could induce a "moment" when heard at the right time, despite its' relatively simple - if not less delicious - construction.

He's done alright; look at who he's got on board. First there's the Ricardo Villalobos & Max Loderbauer remix of "Sexspurt", which is long and as liquid and tripped out as you'd imagine. Bulgarian hardware maverick delivers the goods always on his funky, fierce and soulful rendition of "Techno Disco", it's quite brilliant actually. Finally the now legendary Rene Pavlowitz dons the Head High alter ego for a slamming warehouse rave makeover of "Come On Kerrier".

The label boss himself takes "Amor Fati" by Hodge to task, and turns out a delicately poised but satisfyingly weighty version replete with twinkling synth lines and jagged rhythmic incantations. Hodge meanwhile gets to have some fun with Bruce's "Tilikum", and weaves an emotional techno variation out of the component parts that stands amongst his most impassioned works to date, thanks in no small part to the heart-rending sweeps of chord that blanket the peak of the track.

The Man From Outer Space - (7:15) 128 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
from $2.16
Review: Before landing on Berlin's mighty Tresor, Parisian Zadig made a name for himself on labels like Syncrophone and Deeply Rooted House, offering both house and techno as his specialities, but it's safe to say that his tunes were driven by the latter. "The Stellar Hunter" is, in fact, a heavy, menacing floor tool fit for the likes of any of the world's biggest dance floors, and the same goes for "Beyond The Portal Of Madness", a more contained techno bombshell for the passage mixes, and "The Man From Outerspace" - an ode to Jeff Mills? Possibly.

Heat On Feet EP by Markus Suckut on Rekids Cue Track
Untitled #3 - (5:08) 128 BPM
from $2.16
Review: Rightly or wrongly, Markus Suckut has been to date associated with a particularly bleak strain on post-Sandwell techno. That association looks set to disappear thanks to this new release on Radioslave's label. Indeed, it would be difficult to think of a more dissimilar track to that contemporary sound than "Untitled 1". Over rolling break beats and a menacing bass, Suckut unleashes a gloomy filter that sounds like there is indeed a ghost trapped in his machines. "Untitled 2" marks a return of some form, but the focus stays on industrial-strength drums and clanging, metallic percussion. Finally, "Untitled 3" concludes Suckut's reinvention, with a raw rhythm and jagged percussion complementing deeper, more atmospheric soundscapes.

Vampire (dub) - (8:05) 120 BPM
from $2.16
Review: German label Dial was probably not the most obvious choice for DJ Richard to release his debut album on, but it turns out that Grind is a perfect fit. Tracks like "No Balance" and "Waiting for the Green Flash" are eerie, atmospheric compositions and capture the often times sangfroid sound (and design) of the Hamburg imprint. Elsewhere, there are nods to the classic deep house and techno, especially on the winding, stop-start bleep groove of "Savage Coast" and the fragile, sublime melodies of closing track "Vampire (dub)". However, if there is one track that really consolidates the Dial-DJ Richard relationship, it's the staccato beats and sonorous bass of "I-Mir", an arrangement that perfectly captures the label's wintry escape from the daily grind.
