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: 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".

Tribal Tool - (5:25) 132 BPM
from $1.91
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: Detroit innovator Rob Hood is the latest name to release on Dekmantel. The Dutch label and party organisers have put out work by an impressive array of artists, but persuading the Minimal Nation author is a true masterstroke. Shift, which arrives in time for the festival season, starts with the eerie "Preface" before Hood launches into the abrasive, metallic rhythm of "Idea" and "I Am", a clap-heavy groove whose central riff just keeps on building and building. There are echoes of Hood's minimal past on the loopy "Solid Thought" and the wiry funk of "Nephesh", but Shift captures Hood in big room mode and is the spiritual heir to the locked-on, peak time techno of the Detroit producer's Omega long player.

Played by: Jason Fernandes
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: 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.

OCGC - (6:03) 120 BPM

Review: It would be fair to say that Morgan Geist's Megaprojects series is an attempt to go "back to basics". Not only are the tracks created using - in his words - "cheap drum machines and vintage synths", but also pay tribute to some of his earliest inspirations. In practice, that means doffing a cap to fluid and ear-pleasing early deep house on the glistening "Manic Cinq", pitched-down Italo-disco and bass-heavy early British techno ("Fuzzy Detail") and tactile, breakbeat-driven late '80s house (the rather wonderful "Buy Freedom"). Arguably best of all, though, is closer "OCGC", whose psychedelic acid lines, tactile synth bass and cheery synth melodies make the track sound like a cross between vintage Metro Area and Orbital's "Halcyon".

Review: After a series of singles on Shifted's label, Shawn O'Sullivan delivers the debut 400PPM album. It's an angry, bleak affair. Even in its less visceral moments, like on the stepping metallic rhythm and Rose E Kross' muffled vocals on "New Expiration", or the dark, tranced out pulses of "Into The Heap", a gloomy sensibility hangs heavy in the air. "Sintered Bauxite" sees O'Sullivan add frazzled, droning bass to a similarly angular rhythmic workout, while "Bolling Oscillation" resounds to wild sub-sonic bleeps. For the most dance-floor friendly intense iteration of the 400PPM sound, look no further than the slamming, industrial techno of "Metabolic Grift".

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: 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.

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: Rotterdam techno legend Benny Rodrigues aka ROD returns to Klockworks for more functional and powerful DJ tools guaranteed to rock any room with energy. Opening with the epic "Hor" guided by its absolutely explosive synth arpeggio (think Vitalic!) that builds up to a mighty crescendo, there's more dancefloor fodder courtesy of the darkly hypnotic drone techno of "Dubix" treading a similar path as label mate Etapp Kyle. Rodrigues throws a nice curveball on the dark and aggressive electro-funk workout "Nitecollage" while "Pull" is sure to get some hands in the air with this adrenalised and euphoric number geared for some serious dancefloor drama.

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.

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: 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: Hot on the heels of his debut EP for Clone Royal Oak - the jaunty, swinging deep house shuffler that is "Valentine's Groove" - KiNK returns to the Dutch imprint. It sees label mainstays Serge and Alden Tyrell join forces to deliver a scorching rework of the previously unheard "Beats". As you might expect from the basement-loving duo, it packs a serious punch, thanks in no small part to their surging drum machine rhythms and expert use of build-and-release arrangement. The experienced pair are masters of creating and retaining energy, and their percussion sounds are always as jacking as they come. In other words, it's another club slammer.

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: 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: 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: It would be fair to say that Trus'me has roped in some seriously heavy hitters for this second EP of remixes of tracks from last year's "Planet 4" full-length. Detroit producer Andres kicks off proceedings with a brilliantly balanced remix of "Dark Flow", where simmering strings, gentle acoustic guitars and effortlessly soulful vocal samples ride jazz-fuelled deep house drums and a superb, sub-heavy bassline. Rising star DJ Seinfeld is up next, delivering a hazy, spacey and rhythmically off-kilter rendition of "Here & Now" full of fluid piano flourishes and hissing late night atmosphere. If that's not enough to get the blood pumping, Osunlade has delivering a wonderfully breezy and spiritual deep house rub of "So High" that's effortlessly groovy despite some surprisingly rigid kick-drums.

Review: Guy Brewer aka Shifted set up Drifting Over as an outlet for his dance floor-focused work, and this is exactly what its second installment delivers. "Centipede" is reminiscent of Cosmic/Lost Tracks material at its most dense and opaque, as a repetitive stab is looped over a steely, stepping rhythm. "Gauze" is just as functional; it sees the UK producer drop a series of bleeps over kicks that seem to fall in on top of one another. "A Way Beyond" is less complex and more linear; over a straight groove, rolling snares, not too far removed from those of Richie Hawtin's Plastikman project, are key to keeping the momentum going.

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: 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: 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: Kevin Saunderson's label has released so many classics that this compilation celebrating its quarter century is an embarrassment of riches. Classics provides an insight into Saunderson's diversity as a producer; from the classic late 80s/early 90s Detroit techno-house of "Rock to the Beat" and "The Groove That Won't Stop" through the pop techno of "Good Life" and the deeper, bass-heavy sound of his E-Dancer project, represented here by "World of Deep" and "Bassline", this is a well-rounded snapshot of Saunderson's best-known releases and projects. However, it also wins extra kudos for including some obscure gems like the classy, ominous vocal-led house of "Forces", reorded under the Essa guise.

Review: After Sulk Magic's auspicious debut release, the label returns for its second chapter of left field cuts. Bird of Paradise curates this one with a similar mind-set to the former; a strong natured collection of tracks which all portray a consciousness of marked ingenuity and a desire to defer from the regular dance-music-model. Berlin's Thomas Freudenthal kicks off the record with a portion of hypnotising middle eastern flavoured chug, leading into Kieran Holden's slow-burning, melodic anthem, '3 or 4'. Then Clandestino take the reins with "Sympatico", a debauched new beat tinged mover. In:state's "Spacer" brings the compilation to a climax, a quick pulse, chugging arpeggios and just a little bit of sun-kissed positivity. DaWad & Mokic end the collection in a slower yet utterly driving fashion, with a left-field, brilliantly synth-laden record driven on by its moody melodies.

Review: Talk about an unusual pairing; New York's best-known vegan has partnered with Adam Beyer's techno label for some big room versions of his 90s hits. At its most understated, this collection features German producer Tiger Stripes delivering a stripped back, minimal house take on "Go", while at the other end of the spectrum, Luca Agnelli turns the dreamy, wispy vocals of "Porcelain" into a thumping, rolling affair. In between these two extremes, there's the organic drums on Bart Skills' take of "Go" and Enrico Sangiuliano turning "Why Does My Heart Feel So Bad?" into an effective but strangely catchy groove, as the original track's operatic vocal is fused with waves of acid.

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).

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."
