from $2.00
Review: Luke Vibert donned the Kerrier District moniker last year on the tremendous Kerrier District 4 album on Hypercolour, and here are the remixes. 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".

Yrs Ago - (6:49) 126 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release

Animus - (4:59) 61 BPM
from $2.00
Review: Calum Lee aka Paleman returns to Loefah's new 81 label, the more spontaneous, more digi-centric Swamp 81 offshoot, and as usual the man brings with him an air of innovation to the whole bass sphere. That's because "Yrs Ago" is a tune that could easily be played out in a techno set and, much like Boddika's recent output, it subtly ties the lines between many futuristic genres and sub-genres - a total winner! "Animus" is bleaker in texture and hollow in structure but nonetheless at the cutting-edge of UK bass music. Both tunes offer something less penetrable and more impressionistic that the majority of Paleman's compatriots in 2016. Excellent and highly recommended.

Tell You No Lie - (8:33) 130 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
from $2.00
Review: A taster for Robert Hood's second Floorplan album, this EP puts a spotlight on the radical nature of his musical transformation. On "Music", the visceral rhythms of techno minimalism are gone; in their place is a rolling, tracky groove that boasts a repetitive vocal loop and which has shades of classic Relief /Derrick Carter. "Tell You No Lie" is even more impressive. It sees Hood use a gospel vocal over a stomping, funk guitar-sampling disco house workout. There is an audibly religious dimension to "Tell You No Lie," but Hood's knack for writing a great tune means that it sounds celebratory rather than self-indulgent or preachy.

Review: Pig & Dan are back with what could be their most ferocious offering yet. The Mexico EP starts out with the stripped and tunnelling hypnotism of the title track or the particularly atmospheric "The Licker"; these are tracks that make a great DJ tool for any serious DJ. "Chez Dre" is a thick slab of industrial style techno with a wall of bass that will topple crowds, plus those dub techno stabs and CJ Bolland style mentasms for added fear factor! Hammering the message home is the rather crowd friendly "Point Blank" with its infectious synth lead getting some of those Bodzin or Jonson style moments of euphoria in effect!

Drag 'N' Drop - (6:09) 127 BPM
from $2.00
Review: Chris Spero and Alex Jones really found their sound a few years ago when teaming up as Dense & Pika. Those first couple of releases on their eponymous imprint are the stuff of legend now, not to mention the ones that followed up on Scuba's esteemed Hotflush imprint. For the Calf EP, it's served up courtesy of Adam Beyer's Drumcode, a fitting home for their tough and functional techno tools. Wasting no time messing around with the peak time destroyer 'Edging Forward" which chugs through the audio spectrum like a steamtrain, there's more adrenalin to be found on the dusty and stripped industrialism of "Drag 'N Drop" which is reminiscent of the Klockworks or the Fachwerk sound. We also enjoyed the Chicago hard house sounding title track, which gives an obvious nod to Windy City legends like Relief Records or Kne' Deep.

Review: Believe it or not, but the Lessizmore imprint is in its tenth year of service, and while this makes us all feel a little older, it also makes us feel a little more like dancing. They've prepared a special release for this anniversary and, unsurprisingly, this compilation is filled with utter bombs from some of the hottest properties in house, techno and minimal. Just for you to get a taste of this beast, you have winner after winner from peeps like San Proper, Deadbeat, Mathias Kaden, Mike Shannon, Magda, Steve O'Sullivan....shall we go on? No, we think you get the picture.

El Caracas (Losbikini remix) - (5:48) 117 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
from $2.00
Played by: Future Bones, JB Dizzy
Review: We've come accustomed to Nein Records delivering a constant stream of psychedelic chuggers that sit somewhere between kosmische, nu-dicso and pitched-down acid. Intriguingly, this rare solo outing from Mercury member Felipe Gordon begins with a chunk of undulating, up-tempo deep house/tech-house fusion, and the EP just gets more intense from there. The metallic "Revolution" is particularly potent, with Gordon dragging the throbbing Munich disco sound of Giorgio Moroder through a collapsing munitions factory. "Nintechno" is a distorted, 8-bit dancefloor thumper, while Losbikini turns opener "El Caracas" into wobbly nu-disco chugger.

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: To mark the twentieth anniversary of the foundation of his label, James Ruskin has put together this massive compilation. It includes long-term friends and associates of the label - like Oliver Ho, Regis and Luke Slater - as well as newer additions to the roster, including Lakker and Rommek. Apart from uniting artists from different generations, the compilation also showcases the label's various hues; from the broken beats and intricate rhythms of Ruskin and Regis' O/V/R project and the hypnotic soundscapes of Lakker's "Orange" to the trace stabs and 10 tonne kicks of Regis' "Party Spoiler Too" and the chaotic industrial rhythms on Truss' "Wanastow", this compilation offers to newcomers an invaluable introduction to Blueprint, or to long-standing fans an indispensable reminder of why the label is unique.

Review: Berlin's Dax J couldn't be more Clergy if he tried. Yes, the native Londoner deals in precisely the sort of brand of techno that the imprint is looking for, and a tune like "Purist", with its wormhole of a bassline and stripped-back percussion, is instantly recognisable as being part of the whole Berlin sound; check "Understate" and you'll see that this same structure is transformed into something nastier and more penetrating. The B-side contains another two slices of neural brain dynamite, the first being the stuttering, paranoid beat attack that is 'Warp", followed by the looser, more beatless sway of "Slip From Sanity".

Review: Even if you followed the media for a few seconds over the past few months, you will have seen that the concept of two worlds colliding often causes problems. On this new album by Mim Suleiman, they live in sweet harmony. Dera revolves around the concept of mixing Maurice Fulton's studio prowess with the Tanzanian singer's startling vocal range. From the DJ QU-style dense percussive house of "Tutapona" and "Uvivu", where Suleiman warbles seductively over wailing violins, into the high-paced electro funk and nattering vocal samples of "Wazanzibari" and "Furahi" and the appropriation of Chicago house on "Yako Nde", Adera Dera is a heady serving of social and sonic engineering.

Review: B is the first in a series of three albums that Bjarki will release on Nina Kraviz' label this year. If this first instalment is anything to go on, the Icelandic producer looks set to provide a real mixed bag. The album starts with the jarring, rave-heavy break beats of "Marsian Raver" before veering into stripped back, pounding techno ("Opalocka Acid Groove 12 Bit Mix") and the DBX, pitch-bent vocal minimalism of " Planet Earth Q94 [Live Edit]". Proving that he is a maverick, hyperactive talent, the album also features the wispy downtempo "Son Of A Son" and the grimy bass and electro ticks of "T4it 3". Heaven only knows what the next two albums will sound like.

Review: Harry Agius aka Midland is back: does he ever find time to sleep? Following up the Akase side project he's involved in with Robbie Redway and some killer releases on Aus Music, Feel My Bicep and of course his own Graded imprint which this appears on; making it the label's third release already. "Blush" is a slow burning and emotive piece with an epic vintage synth arpeggio and soulful strings backed by the most restrained beat. "Outpost" gets a bit more fierce with a tougher beat and a free running arpeggio that reeks havoc much like Carl Craig's classic remix of "Falling Up". Finally "Holdup" hammers the message home gloriously with its off kilter yet hypnotic beat and sombre yet emotive atmosphere.

Review: Originally from South Korea but moving to London at the age of 14 where she spent her formative years, Peggy Gou has since moved to Berlin (of course!) where she's since made her break releasing two EPs in less than a year on Matt Edwards esteemed Rekids imprint. Her new one on Phonica white sees her explore classic deep house aesthetics convincingly such as on the dusty MPC bashing Moodymann style deepness of "Day Without Yesterday" with its deep funk bass, emotive strings and woozy sample all working in perfect harmony. But "Six O Six" gets a craving for the acid life with some gnarly 303 lines going head to head with hands in the air vocals and rusty drum machine grooves.

Review: The latest release on Tronik Youth's label features a return visit from Heretic. Real name Timothy Clerkin, he makes an impressive sound on the title track. Jittery Chicago drums underscore an androgynous vocal sample, noisy acid and atmospheric synth sweeps. It's redolent of classic Mood Music and Ewan Pearson before the electro house boom got out of hand. The remix from Low Manuel is more considered and reflective, with the Italian DJ toning down the acid and fusing it with a hypnotic pulse. Thomaas Bank's version returns to the original track's noisy approach, with the synths stripped away and just the bare, bruising rhythm remaining.

Review: It's hard to imagine drum and bass-turned techno artist Marcus Kaye being a golf fan, but that's where he gets his Trevino stage name from, as well as the inspiration for his label. It's also surprising that he is releasing an album in two parts - Front and Back. Comprising nine tracks each, they will be the same length together as a golf course. Of course this would mean nothing if Kaye wasn't a boss producer. Front starts with the lush Detroit techno of "Black Cat" before switching into the buzzing "The Hop". "Defektor Dub" is a rolling, chord-heavy affair, while the insistent bass and fragile melodies of "La View" are as flawless as a perfectly manicured green. As far as house and techno goes, Front is a hole in one.

Review: UK producer Dubspeeka continues his long relationship with Adam Beyer's Drumcode. The reason for this ongoing collaboration lies in his ability to craft music that is quite different to the prevailing fodder. "K368 Unfriended" is a tearing, tranced out groove that brings Kompakt's mellow hooks down a dark alley and gives it a merciless seeing to. More impressive is "K377 Unfriended"; its prowling bass unfolds over broken beats and a rolling rhythm. "K375 Unfriended' sees him try his hand at bleak, post-Sandwell District techno with a looped vocal laid over a hypnotic, pulsing groove, while on "K354 Unfriended" he drops a driving, buzzing take on minimal techno.

Review: Bristol's Billy Kenny is up on our charts this week with a mighty fine appearance indeed, and a rather special one, too. This is because the Bristol kingpin steps out of his own This Ain't Bristol label, and lands firmly on Food Music with something a little more house-oriented than what we're usually used to seeing from him. "Horn Thing", for instance, although drenched in a considerably UK sort of coating, is a hard-edged house tune for peak time spinning, and the same can be said about "It's Alive", another bleep-ridden UK house chugger that'll likely appeal to the bass heads, too. "I Luh U", instead, is a different kind of beast; the majority of the tune is taken over by more cinematic sonics before dropping to break-ridden, four-to-the-floor rhythm.

Review: It's amusing to see some outlets calling the latest release by Thomas Brown and Aaron Turner aka Perfume Advert 'garage house'. The reality is that the northern English duo takes influence from the hazy deep house sound carved out by DiY during the 90s. Sure, there are vocal samples on "Mirror Shield", but like the Nottingham collective's releases and DJing, Perfume Advert bury them deep inside cavernous chords. "Single White Junker" follows a similar path, with a powerful bass supporting the dissected samples. Perfume Advert then turn their attention to German influences, with "Destiny Bond" sounding like Terry Lee Brown Jnr at his dubby best and "Gown" veering down a clicks'n'cuts route.

Review: Jorden Hodgetts is the producer behind the Cleric project, but there is nothing pious or precious on offer here. Indeed, the opposite is true and he ends up making an unholy racket. "2nd Limit" revolves around a pounding kick drum and an industrial/EBM-style vocal exhorting the listener to 'let the beat control your body'. "Formation" is even more intense thanks to razor-sharp percussion, stomping drums and bleeding acid lines, while "Side FX" adheres to a similar style thanks to its dark 303s and grungy bass. By the time the listener gets to the static interference and white noise of "Control", it feels like sweet relief.

Music For Two Kalimbas - (5:39) 65 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
from $2.00
Review: The title track on Randomer's first release for Dekmantel is deceptive. Although the rhythm flails and rolls with the UK producer's usual sense of urgency, it is swathed in misty, hazy melodies. There is no such ambiguity on "My Ears Hurt"; earning its place on the label's UFO Series, the arrangement features a rhythm that weaves its way in and out of a myriad of tonal blips and bleeps. In contrast, "Rendell Pips" and "Music for Two Kalimbas" are powerful DJ cuts. In the absence of any unusual sideways turns, Randomer relies on tight drums, rolling rhythms and plunging breakdowns to lead the listener down the wormhole.

Review: It would be fair to say that Mr Fingers 2016 is something of an event release, at least for those who love deep house. While Larry Heard has kept busy - largely with remixes and reissues - this marks the first 12" release under his most famous moniker for over a decade. He begins in contemplative mood, fusing tumbling music box melodies, creepy electronics and nagging 303 lines on "Outar Acid", before laying down some typically blissful, atmospheric deep house on the wondrous "Qwazars". Flip for "Nodyahead", an effortless mixture of heavy dub-house bottom end, African-influenced percussion and moody late night refrains, and the ultra-deep, piano-laden bliss of "Aether".

Review: Since making his debut in 2013, Thomas "Innershades" Blanckaert has almost single-handedly re-invented Belgian techno. Few contemporary artists are quite as capable as drawing influence from Belgium's early '90s rave scene and bringing it bang up to date. This latest excursion - his first for Creme Organization since 2014 is full of revivalist treats, from the bleep-goes-Beltram throb of "Knowledge" and early R&S heaviness of "The Kings", to the deeper, more melodious, US garage-influenced sweetness of "Crossing Paths". Closer "Wait", where intergalactic, Motor City melodies tumble over a Frank De Wulf-meets-Mood II Swing groove, is also rather fine.

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.

Review: Traum Schallplatten goes in large for this remix package of Mario Hammer's 2015 album as Mario Hammer and The Lonely Robot. German duo Extrawelt turn in two melodically sweet revisions of album opener "Mono No Aware", while Stil Vor Talent's Jonas Mantey does a white noise, techno booming remix of "Sirimiri (Hammersche Modularverschaltung)". The bleeps and Moderat-like soul on Sine Sleeper's remix to "Nyctophilia" gets real heavy, while ambient sessions come from Mario Hammer himself for an abstract, emotive and classical sounding remix to "Misodocktakleidist" - but it's Ian Max Mauch's Granular rework to "Mono No Aware" that hits the B Pitch Control, IDM chord the most.

Review: If the four horsemen of the apocalypse got pissed up on cheap vodka, they would be unable to make the kind of end-of-days soundtrack that prevails on Highest Sense. The work of Rotterdam-based hard techno doyen Stranger, this four-tracker takes its influences from gabba, acid and Mover-style hardcore. The high-paced, doubled up kicks and ravey riffs on the title track and "Ommoord" make for cheap yet enjoyable thrills, but neither can compare to "Play Some Rave For Me"and "Doorklapgabber". Titanium strength drums and high-tempo, bone crushing rhythms make for the most fun one can have without breaking several laws.

Review: Mosca's Not So Much has seen the producer's style progress gloriously over the last couple of years from his UK bass beginnings to some of the freshest explorations in house and techno. On Cedar Wood State (Vector mix)" he throws down the kind of trippy and cyclical machine techno that you'd usually attribute to the likes of Mike Parker or Abdulla Rashim; this one is absolutely mental! On the flip Cedar Wood State (Volt mix)" is a bass heavy electro jam that works that beat repeat to monstrous effect. The kind of track you'd hear at a serious Detroit electro party like No Way Back. Tip!
