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.

Fixed Action Pattern by Surgeon on Token Belgium Cue Track
Fixed Action Pattern (dub) - (6:13) 129 BPM
from $1.49
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.

Don't Leave Me by Fjaak on 50 Weapons Cue Track
Plan A - (7:18) 126 BPM
from $1.49
Review: Whilst the most recent Modeselektion compilation saw Berlin pair Modeselektor pick from a largely established (if very varied) pool of artists, the latest release on their 50 Weapons labels shows Gernot Bronsert and Sebastian Szary have not lost any of their canny A&R skills for uncovering new talent. The uniquely named Fjaak are a Berlin trio with "futuristic minds but already nostalgic feelings" and as far as we can tell this two tracker is their debut release. Familiarise yourself with both cuts and you'll understand why Bronsert and Szary scooped Fjaak up, with a their rave ready productions executed on a mixture of hardware and software the sort of club focused music 50 Weapons has made it's name on. As immediate as the title track is, our pick is the tougher techno fix of "Plan A".

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.

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.

from $1.49
Review: Everyone's favourite strawberry-flavoured techno creator, Erdbeerschnitzel returns to Delsin with a quad of cuts that billow with synthetic detail and imagery. "The Ample Waters" is an upbeat juggernaut powered by melodies and counter melodies that smoulders with UR heritage while "Never Tilt" provides sweet contrast thanks its slow-burning synth-heavy soul. Further on we hit "With Level Hopes", a subversive deep house cut that seeps jazz sentimentalities in such a way it could make Moody Man blush. Finally we're sent to the cosiest of pastures with the beautiful R&B homage "Yet Unfulfilled". Slinky, sleazy and laced with subtle vocoder elements, it's an emotional conclusion to a highly accomplished EP.

Review: If anyone can knock out a techno LP of 25 quality big room club tools it's Developer. The Modularz boss is one of the few producers to reliably release a constant stream of booming 909 sounds without losing a sense of artistic character through oversaturation. For the DJ, In Pure Form is like a box of bullets: each track is deadly as the next. All productions vary between reverb-soaked drum patterns and distorted bell sequences to grittier productions flexing between music you'd expect from Sandwell District, LB Dub Corp and Oscar Mulero's Pole Group. Arm yourself with some Developer techno.

Bad Kingdom (DJ Koze Remix & Robag Wruhme Edit) by Moderat on Monkeytown Germany Cue Track
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: For the second installment of the WNCL compilation series, a host of label regulars are swapping their parts around and remixing each other for a typically eclectic and positively bumping set of results that truly define where the label is at right now. J Tijn makes a tracky "drum tool" out of Bobby Champs' "Krenshaw", while Knowing Looks takes a rough blade to the label boss' "Drop" and comes out with a decidedly jagged breakbeat workout. Kamikaze Space Programme simmers Kevin McPhee's "In Circles" into a crunchy techno study, and then West Norwood Cassette Library himself takes J Tijn's "Flat" to task with a blissful dub-meets-breakbeat house version.

from $1.49
Review: One of the first techno producers to embrace abstract sounds a few years back, Tommy's latest release feels like both a refinement of this textured sound as well as a shift in direction back towards the club. "OX1" combines swathes of eerie effects, noisy textures and half-heard sounds over a stepping, off-beat rhythm. "OX2" meanwhile is a more dance floor friendly track, with a relentless, spiky rhythm shot through with jacking, rattling beats. Maybe he has tired of remaining in the abstract shadows and wants to be back in the thick of the dance floor action - certainly the thumping, rolling reshape of "OX1" by Oscar Mulero will help to facilitate this.

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: 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.

Review: Last year saw French label ClekClekBoom cement its burgeoning reputation with a compilation showcasing the local talent it had been championing since starting up in 2011, including such luminaries in wild-card bass music as French Fries and The Town. There has been a swarm of left-leaning club bangers issued out since the first volume of Paris Club Music, and so it doesn't feel rushed to be welcoming the second volume with a stack of choice cuts from the past twelve months. There's a strong unified vibe to ClekClekBoom, from the tight but slippery electro of Manare to the off-kilter techno of NSDOS, while 50Weapons staple Bambounou sounds right at home with his primal and utterly head-spinning "Idem".

Review: Despite being over two hundred releases old, Soma has lost none of its A&R skills. This is the second EP on the label from Ukraine duo Woo York and it's an impressive release. The title track is a raw slice of techno, its dense, seemingly impenetrable groove containing waves of noise, burning acid splurges and, by contrast, lithe percussive licks. "In The End" is a swaggering, stepping affair; it is based on dense drums and dubby kicks, but at its core there is a haunting hook that serves to offset the intensity. Soma can't be faulted for its choice of remixer and Phase delivers a dark, pulsing take on the title track.

Review: Veteran UK producer Mark Broom has gone through more musical transformations than his colleagues - most recently into an Ibiza-friendly house direction - but on Untitled, he turns to the sound that he knows best. The title track is a killer, purist techno groove, in the mould of Broom's vintage Pure Plastic releases. Rumbling drums roll in over a banging, jack-hammer groove and dubby undercurrents. It manages to strike a balance between tough functionality and a murky, experimental sound bubbling beneath the surface. Edit Select also delivers an excellent remix. More restrained than the original, its eerie, dubby effects and ponderous, menacing groove are just as effective as Broom's thunderous original.

Review: Had enough of Ibiza's pounding tribal house and party minimal sounds? Bedrock feels the same way. Or at least for the duration of this excellent compilation they do. Jon Digweed has used his A&R (and persuasive) powers to their fullest, commissioning ambient and down tempo pieces from artists more commonly associated with peak-time club bangers. King Unique and Charlie May contribute haunting, fragile ambient tracks; the Ibiza Summer Balearic remix of Jimmy Van M and AFFKT' "Dreams" featuring Luxor T comprises lazy beats and sun-kissed vocals, while best of all, the Japanese Popstars' "Out Of Nowhere (Reprise)" is a stunningly cinematic ambient trance piece.

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.

from $1.49
Review: Expert attention to detail across all visual and sonic elements is present and correct once again on this sick release from the Avian nest with label co-founder Shifted at the helm. Originally spread across two 12"s for the physical release, The Cold Light is presented in its entirety across this digital EP. "Cold Light Sektor A" is all about the contrast between elements as the near incandescent lightness of those dubby chords battles with the growing weight of Shifted's sludgy rhythmic arrangements, while "Sektor B" opts to burrow down a plinking locked groove making it a perfect DJ tool. The swarm like "Sektor C" meanwhile is a repetitious and mind numbing groove of techno, deviating only slightly in variance throughout the track's entirety; "Sector D" turns up the freeze in a production which can be likened to a subdued Mike Parker - whom Shifted remixed recently - as cold Sandwell-style bleeps flutter and hum under Shifted's now trademark four to the floor style.

Review: Given the success of his early EPs on Werkdiscs and Rush Hour, hopes are naturally high for this debut album from adopted Londoner Moire. The mystery producer has previously spoken of his love of the capital city, variously calling it "raw, yet so full of soul" and describing his style as "London techno". Certainly, there's a notable world-weariness amongst the attractive analogue electronics, enveloping chords and post-industrial dancefloor rhythms of Shelter. While there are unsettling moments - see the bubbling, acid-flecked warehouse hypnotism of "Rings" and the disarming sludge of "Stars" - for the most part Moire deals in hazy, late night beauty, smothering the album in intoxicating textures and flitting late night melodies (see the dawn-over-Hackney Marshes feel of "Mr Figure" for proof).

Review: Right on cue, Rene Pawlowitz drops another set of Head High bangers just in time for summer. While previous releases from his much-loved Power House imprint have been short but sweet affairs, the brilliantly named Megatrap offers a full nine tracks of what Hard Wax have referred to quite concisely as "uplifting Breakbeat Techno in golden 1990s leaning style". Those who have heard the previous Head High material will know exactly what to expect, but there's still much excitement to be had in getting stuck into such a sizeable portion of throwback techno, the likes of which are likely to liven up any party. There was never any doubt, but Pawlowitz has done it again.

Review: Benjamin Damage returns to 50 Weapons for another ripper and he means business on this one! Aqueous melodies, dubbed-out beats and just the right level of bass feed into a strong techno backbone; "Up" is a warehouse banger with seductive loops, and "Acid Bath" is a straight tool bumper for the peak hours, but it's "Splash" that really impresses, finishing things off with some much needed - albeit subtle - jackin action.

Review: Maybe it's because he is releasing on Modeselektor's label that US producer Truncate has chosen a different approach than usual. Whatever the explanation, Pressurize is full of surprises. The only real dance floor track on the release is "Bipolar", a stripped back, functional minimal techno groove that gets increasingly intense thanks to its grimy acid undercurrent. Elsewhere, Truncate is in more reflective mood. Both "Breakdown" and "Dial 20" are chord-heavy stepping grooves that combine the intensity of Technasia with the bassy power of Shed. Just in case there was any doubt that Pressurize marks a sideways shift for Truncate, the title track is led by dubby chords and slowed down, teased out beats.

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: A second collaboration by Perc and Truss has surfaced and it adds to the situational, high intensity techno both are delivering London clubs at the moment. Across eight tracks the two have released as Perc & Truss you can now begin to pinpoint some of the individual elements from both producers. Here it comes through on Truss' straight-laced and hammered-down percussion and the caustic acid lines similarly heard on his MPIA3 alias, particularly "Forever Your Girl". On the Perc side of things, the speakerphone vocal of "Two Hundred" is reminiscent to those used on his Power And The Glory LP, as is the light electrical hum of distortion across the intermittent snares of "Van Der Valk". And if you're after a big old kick drum, look no further than "Judd".

Review: To the casual observer it might seem like we are approaching 'Donatoverload' with numerous Dozzy related projects released recently. Look a bit closer though, and it's either been reissues (like the Aquaplano Sessions) collaborations with Tin Man and Neel or extensive remix packages like Plays Bee Mask. There has been little actual solo Dozzy material since a 2011 release for the Acid Test series, so this release for Lucy's Stroboscopic Artefacts label is most welcome! Translating roughly as "Third Day", the four-track Terzo Giorno is typical Dozzy with a fine sense of textural dexterity evident on "Il Canto Della Maga (part 2)" and the title track. The addition of Dozzy makes perfect sense for Stroboscopic Artefacts within the context of their recent releases from Lakker, Rrose and Chevel which have provided the label with a renewed juncture to the dancefloor.

Erotic Discourse (Kowton remix) - (5:14)
from $1.49
Review: If you've been to a night club over the course of the past six years, it's fairly certain that you will have heard "Erotic Discourse" at least once. Released by Paul Woolford under the Bobby Peru alias on 20:20 Vision in 2006, the track is rightly regarded as one of the highlights of the producer's storied career; featuring an effect akin to a golf ball dropping down a corrugated iron pipe, there's not really been a techno track since that's quite so weird. Now Hotflush have decided to revisit the track, delivering it into the hands of some interesting remixers. Dense & Pika's rework opts to leave the sonic weirdness wisely remains intact, whilst also bringing their weighty rhythmic leaning to the fore. Livity Sound's Kowton meanwhile delivers one of his signature revisions which pairs the rippling sonics of the original with some meaty subs, resulting in one of the strangest tracks to see light on Hotflush in some time. Make no mistake, these are two absolute killers here.

Review: Ital has always confounded expectations, releasing electronic music that flits between styles and defies easy categorization. The American producer's at it again on Endgame, an album supposedly inspired by minimalist composers and his recent experiments with psychedelic drugs. Certainly, Endgame boasts the hypnotic, off-kilter pulse of, say, Steve Reich and Philip Glass, and the dreamy, hard-to-focus musical wizardry most associated with psychedelia. Despite these influences - and occasional nods to both jazz and dub - it's primarily a techno album, with ghostly electronics, skittish rhythms and drowsy chords underpinning crystalline melodies. It's certainly his most considered album to date, and arguably his best.

Review: Matt Flanagan is finally starting to prove it's not just the spelling of his production moniker, DeFeKT that's rad, it's his music too. This release for Komish sounds like his most accomplished batch of tracks yet, arriving on a label that has previously released music by Peter Van Hoesen, Samuli Kemppi and Bleaching Agent. DeFeKT adds a touch of rumbling electro to Komisch, which begins with the rough and bleepy groove of "Chain Drive". It's the motoring stabs of "Move" which will get the Drexciyan heads walking to the dancefloor like the track's bassline, while a third track, "Down Here", sees Flanagan provide some uber-dub techno made with an electro brain.

Review: Joining the group of notable artists who use unpronuncable track titles - Aphex, Avian signings Shxcxchcxsh and Autechre - is Kevin McPhee. Admittedly though, the style on this release for Hypercolor is more accessible than some of the aforementioned artists. "CC-XXX-YY-NNNNN" is based on dubbed out drums and a lead-weight rhythm and features vocal samples amid its acidic lines. "DD-YYY-ZZ-OOOOO" is less complex and tailor made for the dance floor, with its tough drums supporting dark chord progresssions. The seemingly normal "Branch" is far more abrasive, its stomping beats and malevolent rhythm supporting fuzzy bass licks. Trevino rounds out the release with a linear, acid-fueled take on "CC-XXX-YY-NNNNN".

Review: Like your house deep? Like it sleazy? Like it raw? Good, there's no better way to serve it, and boy do London's Maison Sky serve it. For their latest missive from clubland, these guys have delivered for slices of some serious muscle house with "It Is What It Is" taking the lead - all thumping kicks, early 90s style fuzzy stab loops and soft synth sweeps. Other highlights include the deeper still 6-minute slow burner "Ludes" and the laser jazz techno of "Switch". These guys are totally on top of their game.

Review: Borderland sees the illustrious Juan Atkins & Moritz von Oswald join forces for an album of meditative techno for Tresor. The partnership marks the first time Juan Atkins and Moritz von Oswald have directly collaborated in 20 years, though both have regularly assisted each other's work behind the scenes. Von Oswald played an important role in engineering much of Model 500's R&S catalogue, while Atkins supplied his mixing craft and two edits on Thomas Fehlmann & Moritz von Oswald's early '90s project 3MB. This eponymously titled album is skewed toward club-orientated electronic music blessed with a freedom for organic musical experimentation and expect to sink into a soundscape where melodic and textural motifs float in and out of focus.

Review: More unreleased heat from the Karl O'Connor vaults! DN51 features four tracks plucked from the recording sessions for O'Connor's Penetration album under the Regis moniker, released in 2001. Originally only available as dubplates, the material finally sees a full digital release, with four slabs of loop-driven, brutal machine funk. The granite hard kicks of "Fragment 1" threaten to dislodge the needle from the groove such is the ferocity with which they rattle; be sure to check the penetrating, tunnelling groove of "Fragment 4". A must for Regis completists and another fine release in what is becoming a pretty special year for O'Connor.

from $1.49
Review: Itokim, aka Tendo-based producer Takuro Ito, aligns with DJ Bone's Subject Detroit label with the Subject Japan: Rhythm Poems EP and his opening gambit certainly leaves a dent. "Motechnique" features weighty but warm kicks start as they mean to go on, bursting with pace and vigour as thrusts and stabs pinprick the brooding chords. The laidback, easy-going connotations of the title to "Roll Up and Shine" are very much the ethos and aesthetic of the production, as a playful, bubbling melody sets a warm and almost sugary tone from the off before being bolstered by a suave melange of full-bodied kick and dexterous percussion. "The Mood Device" is a to the point groover that melds elements of the previous productions to stunning effect, melding innumerable coatings of percussion and synth into one delightfully deep and multidimensional slice of formidable dancefloor composite.
