from $1.49
Review: Sven Vath's annual residency in Ibiza is home to some of the best and most adventurous electronic music on the white island and the annual compilations follow the same path. O starts with the fuzzy, frazzled trance of Roland M Dill's "The Messenger", followed by the rolling, steppy house of Tripmastaz "Grindin" and Dana Ruh's "If You Don't Know A Name", which sounds inspired by the growling bass of Kevin Saunderson's E-Dancer project. The madness doesn't end there and O also boasts trance techno from Dast, Tom Demac's rave sampling house and Steve Parker's tribal techno banger, ""Brian's Lullaby" - making the compilation as wild and unpredictable as Cocoon's own nights.

XTC - (8:19) 118 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
XTC by DJ Koze on Pampa Germany Cue Track
Knee On Belly - (6:05) 122 BPM
from $1.49
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.

Axid - (6:28) 131 BPM
from $1.49
Review: The culmination of 10 years' experience as a producer, InharmX is a masterclass in techno purism. The release starts with the dubby techno title track before briefly diverting into the chord-heavy ambience of "Under Part 1". From there, Haus ups the tempo and intensity levels; "Under Part 2" is an intense workout, undercut by doubled-up rhythms, and better still, "Module 3" is a relentless, Sahko/Sleeparchive-style bleep techno affair - which Roger Semsroth himself approves of. Finally, there's "Axid", a pummelling, unflinching workout, laced with acid and shot through with the kind of distorted 909s that Jeff Mills himself would approve of.

CH1 - (5:32) 130 BPM
from $1.49
Review: London's Progression returns to Blueprint Limited with four high-powered slabs of machine noise, characterized most appropriately by the term 'techno'. This naughty, hand-stamped piece of wax is dark, foreboding and distinctly industrial in texture, where cuts such as "Omnipotent 3", "Obscuro" and "CH1" explore all of the genre's tricks and no nonsense sonics. The bleepy outlook of "The Coriolis Effect" is a particular highlight!

I Wanna Go Bang - (4:55) 130 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
Arthur & The Intergalactic Whales by Bjarki on TRIP Cue Track
Orange Juice Man - (5:32) 127 BPM
from $1.49
Review: The latest release on Nina Kraviz' label features a new version of an old classic. Released back in 1989 by Todd Terry, in its original format, "I Wanna Go Bang" is a raucous, ravey house track that captured the wide-eyed innocence of that time. Therefore, it's to Icelandic artist Bjarki's credit that his take on this classic is respectful but also makes it relevant to modern times. The beats are stomping and Bjarki's stabs whirr like helicopter blades, while the robotic vocal has a solemn edge that is indicative of more serious, modern times. By contrast, Bjarki's "Orange Juice Man" is a balmy slice of ambience, but comes as a welcome relief after his rambunctious version of the Terry classic.

Block The Box by Martyn on Dolly Cue Track
Don't Block The Box - (7:34) 127 BPM
from $1.49
Review: Releases on Dolly offshoot Dolly Dubs are infuriatingly infrequent, but when they do appear they're invariably excellent. This latest offering - the first for 12 months - is predictably impressive. It's Martyn's second contribution to the series, and his first EP of 2015. There's naturally much to set the senses tingling, from the wobbly analogue bass, dreamy pads and loose, rave-era house breakbeats of flipside "Don't Block The Box", to the pitched-down jungle rhythms, bittersweet chords and notable bass of opener "Done Away". The swinging, spooky and downright chilling "EF40" is pretty darn tasty, too.

Klockworks 14 by Trevino on Klockworks Germany Cue Track
After The Rain - (6:00) 128 BPM
from $1.49
Review: There was naturally some surprise when Manchester producer Marcus Kaye - best known for his soulful D&B work as Marcus Intalex - started making techno under the Trevino alias back in 2011. It was his 2012 EP for Ben Klock's Klockworks imprint that really sealed his reputation amongst the techno community. Here, he returns to that imprint, bringing with him three varied tracks. Contrast, for example, the rave-era breakbeats, stretched-out pads and epic breakdowns of "Eclipse" - an unashamed chunk of early '90s revivalism - with the spooky melodies and intense rhythms of "The Dismal Truth". Then there's "After The Rain", which fixes Detroit techno chords and melodies to a pulsating, electro-influenced groove.

Review: Ireland's Sian is still at it. Making it big around a decade ago in the early noughties minimal boom with some great tracks like "Apple Tree" and "Sei" it's good to see he's still at it. Released on his own Octupus imprint, this album shows his deft skills at sound design and creating dancefloor ready artillery. First tracks "Ascension" and "Diamond Shore" are rolling tunnelling trips that really nails the modern techno sound. As does "Candy" with its buzzing peak time bassline and druggy Minus style pitch shifted vocals. There's a lot to get through here, 22 tracks to be exact. But it's great bang for your buck, trust us!

Review: While the Arches has sadly closed, that other great Glasgow institution, Soma, keeps on putting out great music. The label's latest project is Transmissions Glasgow, a compilation of 15 tracks from the city's producers. It is executed in much the same way as one of Slam's flawless DJ sets; beginning with the serene ambience of Edit Select's "iN1" and the fractured, slow-motion beats of Puddledub's "Circling", it moves into the deep, trance house of Dextrous "Station to Station". It wouldn't be a Soma compilation without some techno and this is provided by artists like Deepbass and the brilliantly named Complex Emotional Response, but as always, Slam's take on the form is deeply soulful and emotive, demonstrated here most impressively by Edit Select's percussive but mournful synth-led "Resurface".

Review: Thirty three seminal Robert Hood productions all in the one download: The M-Plant Mother lode has landed. Even if you're well up to date on the Detroit legend's storied career there's no stopping the joy at what material has been included here - including - the best minimal techno production of all time: Monobox's "Realm". For something funkier there's the "The Pace", "The Greatest Dancer", the all praising "We Magnify His Name" and "Monkey". But wait: there's more! "Alpha" and "The Family" from his Omega Man LP makes the cut as do the epic James Brown and Aretha Franklin samples from newer school Floorplan material "Baby Baby" and "Never Grow Old". There's also the legendary stuff like "Who Taught You Math" and "Minus" to "Protein Valve" and much, much more. Dig in.

Change To Win - (5:15) 126 BPM

Review: There's something more than a little unsettling about the cover image for Perc's latest release which finds the producer's face covered in what looks like porridge. In some ways, it's rather fitting, because the EP itself - like much of Alistair Wells' output - is similarly hard to handle. The single's final track, "Change To" - a cacophonous fusion of distortion, scattergun hits and garbled voices - sounds like his vision of the end of days. Of course, few are quite as accomplished when it comes to creating raw, bleak, intense techno, and its' these moments - particularly the industrial motifs, aggressive electronics and thumping beats of "Gruel" - that make Gob a must-have.

Review: Dave '2562' Huismans returns to Clone Basement Series for the first time since 2012, with another installment of the ongoing Archive series. As usual, there's plenty to enjoy, with opener "Cheater VIP" - much sought-after since he dropped it in his Boiler Room set last year - providing the near perfect fusion of funk-fuelled techno rhythms, metallic percussion and industrial textures. "Funkstation" is an altogether creepier, deeper proposition, with sinewy strings and discordant horn samples complimenting a sludgy groove. The rolling intensity of "Us" ups the creepy stakes even further, helped, in no small part, by some particularly ghostly cymbals.

Arachnid - (6:22) 131 BPM
from $1.49
Review: Bittersharp is the work of a Belgian producer and sounds like it was influenced in part by that country's hardcore past. The title track is an intense, high-paced techno track, led by screeching rave riffs and reminiscent of some of Reload Records' more abrasive releases from the mid-90s. "Kobalt" is just as tough and sees Border One drop concrete block kicks and screwdriver riffs. For his final track, he takes inspiration from Germany rather than his home country. "Arachnid" is also high-paced and features hammering drums, but the cold, repetitive bleeps sound like they were lifted form Sleeparchive's studio.

The music, however, is quality as per usual from our main man but the tracks are a little darker, a little edgier in texture. "M's Retrogade", for instance, is more broken compared to Mr G's usual sound, its metallic percussion stabbing away nicely at the rolling beats, while "Flexable" is deeper, dubbier and straighter. Over on the flip, "Binky's Groove" is a classic G joint, straight highs and ingenious vocal samples sliding like mad, and "Dis-tracted" is a swinging techno belter for peak time floor damage. Red hot!

Review: Holland's Martyn is so in tune with the UK sound that we sometimes think he's hiding out in the underbelly of South London among the likes of Burial or Loefah. This time he's back on his own 3024 alongside The SpaceApe - usually delivering his fine vocal swagger for Kode9 - with "Is This Insanity?", a stop-start dubstep hybrid for the darker sets. "Camberwell Green" follows without any kick drum, just a gorgeous bundle of melodies and percussion riding on the top, and Berghain master DJ Ben Klock remixes the title track into an effective techno clusterbomb reminiscent of the tunes for his own Klockworks imprint. Large.

Review: It's been great to see Ashley Burchett finally get his dues in the last few years where he has kept on with a steady slew of killer releases. Most of them on Token. Versions is further testament to this but as the title suggests, showcases some revised and unreleased takes on previous efforts. And they're just as brilliant. "Flyby/Falling (Enhanced Version) is typical of Burchett with its slamming, cyclical peak time intensity. "Bulk (Unreleased Demo Mix)" is a stripped DJ tool with its chugging and brutal delayed beat accompanied by muted and syncopated percussion. "Obscura Mix 1" slams away in a funky and tribal fashion similar to an old James Ruskin or Oliver Ho cut. Finally "Mass (Stripped Mix)" does exactly what it says on the cover with this pummelling DJ tool.

Review: Paul Rose gets the remix treatment from two of house and techno's most respected acts. In its original format, the title track is a blissed out ambient composition, equal parts evocative and atmospheric. Tuff City Kids use these musical textures as a backdrop against which they overlay a pulsing, throbbing bassline and churning chords, turning it into a classic deep house jam. Phase's reconstruction of "Family Entertainment" is even more radical. While the original version's half-heard squeals are not audible on the Token artist's remix, the tough broken beat arrangement nonetheless seethes with an underlying feeling of menace.

Review: The legendary Paul Woolford, who also goes by the name Special Request and who has appeared on everything from Sven Vath's Cocoon to Carl Craig's Planet E, returns to Scuba's Hotflush with a bouncy two-tracker that's bound to cause a stir on the dancefloor. "Orbit" takes over the entirety of the A-side with a powerful swell of bass hypnotics, driving percussion shots and a heavy dosage of head-banging. Over on the B-side, "MDMA" is inevitably madder, its bassline being more deranged and broken down...sliding nicely in between equally wonky piano keys and strange atmospherics. Large.

Review: Spain's Reeko returns to the dance floor for his latest excursion on Oscar Mulero's label. Tough, tribal beats, rolling grooves and insistent rhythms are on offer across these four tracks. However, to describe Reeko's music in such simplistic terms is to do it a disservice. Each track on this release has an extra layer, an added dimension that makes it stand out from the increasingly crowded tough techno scene. On "Empty Streets", this manifests itself in the form of niggling percussion, the title track is characterised by its tough tribal beats and best of all, "Dishonest Thoughts" resonates to gut-wrenching sub-bass.

Review: Rotterdam's Mord continues with its consistent onslaught of peak time club destroyers, proving they really are the techno label of the moment! Who better to carry on the torch than the legendary Brendon Moeller, under his Echologist alias. In the past known for his dub techno explorations, these days known for relentless grooves. With its tunnelling melody, sinister synth squelches and monstrous kick drum, lead track "Shake Well" ticks all the right boxes. "Inside Dimensions" is the absolute peak time weapon on this one, which tears the through the speakers like a post-apocalyptic steam train. The mayhem continues with the sinister modular workout of "Lucky Bastard" as good as anything by Mike Parker or Steve Bicknell did recently, but the restrained energy of "Transformer" and "Penetration" provide equally worthy DJ tools for different circumstances.

Review: Marvin Dan III and Lee "The Black Belt" Guy debut on the excellent Hivern Discs with the Egoista release and bring with them a wealth of knowledge and understanding of what makes a dancefloor tick. Most recently spotted on US label Young Adults, Marvin & Guy are known best for the series of cosmic disco mind benders issued for Let's Get Lost, On The Prowl, and their own eponymous label. That sense of cosmic sprawl is very much in evidence on this three-track release, with the seven minute title cut setting the tone, sounding akin to one of Joakim's more epic productions. The star gazing "Cancion (Para Ti)" has Lena Willikens set-opener written all over it whilst "The Man Who Lost The Hat" adopts a somewhat darker tone, despite the silly title. More great music from the Hivern crew.

Review: The shadowy Berlin based SNTS appears again, but not on their own imprint or Horizontal Ground, rather master hypnotist Edit Selects label and how fitting. "ES19.1" has the droning, tunneling Zooloft vibe down pat, while cavernous, relentless and broken is "ES19.2". Man of the moment Blue Hour steps up to deliver a perfect peak time heavy hitter on the remix of "19.3" and "19.4" is yet another dark and reverberating workout reminiscent of something off Surgeon's seminal Force & Form release of fifteen years ago.

Review: Southern Frenchman turned Berliner Julian Jeweil is back with another release on Minus and the label has still got it, if these peak time techno grooves are anything to go by. "Bird" with its booming and cavernous kick and harsh white noise strikes support an infectious and mesmerizing melody. "And We" gets funky with intricately programmed rhythm and rolling bassline providing true peak time reliability. Both "Concept" and "153 Essex St" are steady stompers versatile enough to fit in with a variety of techno styles with their upfront minimal groove. Finally "Wax" just reeks of label boss Richie Hawtin with its tape delayed vocals, rolling bass and big room druggy atmosphere.

Review: Mystery producer Post Scriptum appeared from nowhere earlier in the year, pricking the ears of techno heads the world over with the superb "Human Timescales" on Function's Berghain 07 mix. Function is clearly a fan, as he's decided to release the anonymous producer's debut album, Post Scriptum 01, on his Infrastructure imprint. Reviews elsewhere have called it "one of the year's best techno sets", and it's hard to disagree. Largely spooky, clandestine and paranoid, it mixes hypnotic, floor-friendly rhythms with crusty, minimal-style textures and vintage bleeps and electronic melodies. The results are, without fail, thoroughly impressive, with the Drexciyan bubbler "The Extreme Distance" standing out.

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: The Bunker New York rarely mess around when it comes to techno. With a few notable exceptions, their releases are rarely less than thrillingly forthright and intense. Certainly, this surprise EP from veteran techno producer Mark Verbos - a man whose discography stretches back over 20 years - fits that remit. Flitting between acid-laden psychedelic intensity ("Just A Little Late"), high-octane loop jams ("In The Back Room") and sweaty, all-out assaults on the senses (the metallic madness that is "Start Up Drive"), it portrays Verbos as a masterful producer of no-holds-barred dancefloor techno. Interestingly, he diverts a little from the script on the EP's final moment, "Walk The Distance", combining sparse dub techno rhythms and ghostly electronics.

Review: The third release on Local Sound Network is from the label owner and it's a stormer. '"Silhouette" sees Takeuchi focus on the kind of stepping, broken beat techno that Phase and Inigo Kennedy are known for. By contrast, "Veil" is much more direct and revolves around a tough, pumping techno rhythm. Takeuchi has also chosen the remixers wisely; Deepbass delivers a rolling, percussive take on "Silhouette", while best of all is the Obscene Mannequin version of "Veil"; high-paced, distorted beats underpin dreamy, layered chords and the end result sounds like Lenny Dee getting it on with James Holden.

Review: Running Back boss Gerd Jansen has already shown a love of DJ-focused rhythm tracks via beat-focused releases from Redshape and Todd Osborne. Here he goes one further, pulling together a six-track collection of drum workouts from an impressive roll call of producers. Amongst the drum machine-heavy treats you'll find a brilliantly loose, metallic workout from Disco Nihlist (track four), a smacked-out chunk of tropical oddness from the ever-impressive I:Cube (track 2), a surprisingly jackin', cymbal-heavy roller from Ame (track 5), and a dense chunk of afterparty voodoo from Radio Slave (track 6). Manuel Tur's dirty, low-down opener is pretty darn tasty, too.

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.

Review: Undoubtedly one of the most prolific Dutch artists currently working in electronic music, Boris Bunnik has put out a staggering amount of records in the eight years since he first surfaced. Presentism is his fourth full length under the familiar Conforce name and flips the script a little. Recorded following his recent move to Rotterdam, it sees the veteran Dutch artist blending glacial electronics, crystal clear melodies and spacey chords with elements of ambient, classic IDM and Detroit techno. As a result, it's a far more picturesque and set than his three previous albums, with an emphasis on mood and melody previously buried beneath industrial textures and razor-sharp rhythms. It could well be his best set to date, and that's saying something.

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.

Digital Arpeggios by Percussions on Text Cue Track
Digital Arpeggios - (9:01) 117 BPM
from $1.49
Review: Ever the productive soul, Keiran Hebden returns to the Percussions project for a new one track release that really hits the spot. The delightfully named "Digital Arpeggios" arrives a few months after Hebden issued an album's worth of archival Percussions material and if you liked that this new cut will most certainly resonate. Roadtested to high levels of rapture during Hebden's Dekmantel festival performance as Four Tet, "Digital Arpeggios" rolls out over nine minutes at a leisurely 117BPM pace with skippy 2step referencing beats joined by a simple lead melody that has you hooked from the off. Hebden's mastery of musicality is evident as the track swells with emotive intent, reaching a mid-point high before he reins it all back in for a triumphant second movement.
