Review: Spanish duo Samot & Surit aka NX1 continue their deep dance floor techno mission on NX1 04. Like its predecessors, the fourth instalment is all about fusing esoteric, soft-focus elements with robust, rhythmic elements. "NX1_04-010" sets the tone for the release, its eerie filters and spacey breakdowns unfolding over sharp, metallic rhythms and heavy beats. "NX1_04-011" is more moody, with grey scale textures combined with a bleeding acid line and a slamming rhythm, while "NX1_04-011 " brings the release to a fitting climax. There, the kicks are heavier, the percussion more firing and even the chords resonate with a darker intent.

Review: As Like This shows, NYRA has clearly been schooled in two different sounds. On the title track, the sound of raw tribal house is audible, as heavy beats shuffle and skip, underpinning an insistent vocal sample. There is a radically different approach on "M for Mother"; there, a chugging, dubby groove, scuffled and imperfect is the dominant sound. It's straight from the Basic Channel dub techno textbook. Finally, the 'Sven Adoring Mother' take on the same track is also inspired by a different sound. In this instance, it's the jazzy keys and rasping percussion of 90s deep house that provides the inspiration.

Review: With numerous vinyl, CD and cassette releases over the past 20 years, Orphx are true techno veterans; Boundary Conditions marks their third release for Adam X's Sonic Groove label, and sees them continue to blur the lines between techno, industrial and noise music with stellar results. "Outcast" begins with a tunnelling bass pulse, slowly giving way to savagely distorted synth blasts, gradually building to a frenzy of broken noise. "Vanishing Point" is similarly beautiful in its abrasiveness, coating its simple beat with distorted drum rolls and delicate tones, while "Periphery" takes a gentler approach letting its textures and rhythms unfold and breathe in more cavernous surroundings. Once again the duo prove why they are one of techno's most enduring outfits.

Review: Oscar Mulero revisits last year's Black Propaganda with some help from some of contemporary techno's biggest names on this essential remix EP. "To Convince For The Untruth" sees Stroboscopic Artefacts boss Lucy take the original's cavernous surroundings and sharpen them up with bitcrushed hi-hats and subtly a rumbling noise floor, while Developer's take on "Disinformation" straightens out the original's breakbeat acid tendencies by soaking its furious synth lines in reverb and hooking everything together with a rolling 4/4 kick. Finally, Shifted's take on "Intentionally False" keeps the measured pace of the original but transplants its thick, bulging frame for a threadbare structure littered with subtle detail.
