Review: While albums have never been the focus of most techno producers' careers, it's still surprising to find that Satellite is Sam Paganini's first full length. Given that veteran Italian producer released his first 12" back in 1994, it's been a long time coming. Happily, Paganini has decided to stick to what he does best, filling Satellite with the kind of throbbing, floor-friendly tackle with which he's becoming accustomed. Of course, there's plenty of variety within that, from the rave-inclined pump of the Dubfire-ish "Down" and smooth, deep house-influenced sweetness of "Silver Panorama", to the cacophonous jazz fills and thunderouds bottom end of "Lotus" and deliciously melodious "Sunflower".

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.

Children Of The E (North London mix) - (8:26) 84 BPM
from $1.49
Review: Breakbeats, rave stabs, air raid sirens, clashing cymbal fills and looped crowd noise. With his South London mix to "Children Of The E" Radio Slave throws down more '90s rave references you can poke a sweaty glow stick at. For a slightly subdued alternative, and something that could easily nestle its way into a circa-2014 deep house or techno set, is "Children Of The E (North London mix)", a track that brims with a bleep-generation aesthetic made to fit the tastes of today that won't fall into the waste bin of irrelevant breaks. It's been a while since Radio Slave was on Running Back and he's really brought the rave!

from $1.49
Played by: Maelstrom
Review: It's fairly rare that a remix will blow you away, but that's undoubtedly the case with Acid Arab's astonishingly good remake of Etienne Jaumet's Metallik Cages, the first single to be taken from the former Zombie Zombie man's forthcoming album, La Visite. Utilising only the briefest snippets from the original (sadly not included in this package), the Paris-based duo deliver a snaking, slow-building, deliciously paranoid rework that puts their exotic intentions and dense Middle Eastern percussion at the heart of the action. In truth, the clips don't do it justice; it's an amazing piece of work. Versatile boss Gilb'r sticks close to the druggy, EBM-inspired chug of the original on his solid Club Mix, but it's his Bonus Beats version - a trippy rhythm cut that makes excellent use of stereo panning effects and weird noises - that impresses more.

Rigid by Fuel on Optimo Trax Cue Track
Fuel - "Rigid" - (5:40) 130 BPM
from $1.49
Review: Having brought countless obscure tracks from the '80s to our attention through their mix CDs and club nights, Optimo now turn their attention, albeit temporarily, to the decade of drums, the 90s. While the later part of the 1990s saw dull tribal house and one-note loop techno monotony prevail, this split release shows that the use of heavy drums wasn't always tedious. On "The Way Out Is The Way", Norwegian-English duo Illumination deliver three minutes' worth of searing bass and epic keys before the filtered drums roll in, while Mr Marvin's "I Want You" is straighter percussive rhythm although its stuttering vocal sample makes it stand out. Best of all though is Fuel's "Rigid", a panning, stomping affair with traces of Chicago's ghetto sound.

from $1.49
Review: Here's something to set the pulse racing: a digital-only roundup of some of the best 2014 releases from Amsterdam heavyweights Rush Hour, and their associated labels. As you'd expect, there's a mix of fresh material, reissues (see Push/Pull's ace "Bang The Drums" and "Africa", and the sinewy deep house of Vincent Floyd's 1990 gem "Your Eyes") and lesser-known album tracks (the undulating jazz-house brilliance of Awanto3's "Bubbles Made Me Cry"). It makes for a great listen, of course, with plenty of top-notch dancefloor moments for DJs willing to mix it up. Contrast, for example, the Detroit electro of DJ Stingray's "Temporary Bond", the picturesque, sub-aquatic techno of Population One, and the glitchy, midtempo warmth of Joris Voorn's "The Recipe".

Review: In Scuba's ever-deepening commitment to emotive tech house, Hotflush score a big coup in teaming up with Agoria for this EP of expansive big room beasts that know just as much about subtlety as brashness. The title track holds back in all the right places to create a palpable tension that simply builds throughout the track, without losing any of that all important presence, while "Make It Real" finds the French producer throwing down chunky chords for everyone to instantly latch on to. ESS delivers a remix of the latter that adds some crafty drum hooks into the mix and a little additional emotive synth work for an equally sizable dancefloor cut.

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.

Played by: Leg Jazz
Review: Having originally made his name with the (now dormant) Peanut Butter & Jams blog, Washington-based Jackson Ryland has turned his hand to music production. This debut release for Massimo Previti's popular DaBit label shows much promise. Lead cut "Crystal City" is particularly potent, with glassy-eyed chords and gently throbbing melodies tumbling over sweaty, carnival style percussion. The thumping, cut-up house of "JP's" is also impressive (check the heavy sub bass that enters during the breakdown for proof), while "Up The Shelf" expertly fuses new age electronics with the best of British bass music. Chiwax man Steve Murphy remixes "Crystal City", delivering a tight-but-swinging roller that makes great use of deep chords and colourful piano stabs.

Visions - (5:38) 125 BPM
from $1.49
Review: Increasingly sparring in the studio and on the decks, Bristol bods Hodge and Facta consummate their partnership with this release for Rinse that highlights two very different but equally essential cuts. "Spheres Of Costa Rica" riffs on a distant and enchanting hook of traditional vocal and places it in the midst of a spooky house framework rich with melodic percussive hits and plenty of low-end heft. "Visions" meanwhile takes a more moody route into oppressive industrial scrapes and dubby treatments to make a thoroughly contemporary hybrid belter that holds back as much as it releases. It's an assured release that plays on the strengths of both producers and points the way for more cool and deadly dance killers to come.

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.

Review: Milos Martinov follows last year's Misfit debut release on Mord with this equally dark record. "Trema" is exactly the kind of dense, rolling techno groove that you'd expect to hear on Bas Mooy's label, with grainy drums and a juggernaut rhythm prevailing. Clouds' remix ramps up the pressure further, a heavy, loopy affair that could be Ben Sims on steroids, while the label owner delivers a pounding, abrasive take on "Kontrola". However, it's the original version of this track that really stands out; less direct and upfront than the other tracks, it still captures the listener's attention thanks to its furious, lurching rhythm and disturbed, high-pitched vocal samples.

Review: Originally released back in 2010, Boris Bunnik's debut album as Conforce has stood the test of time. It helps that the type of music and influences that the Dutch producer draws on are timeless, it also has a lot has to do with his flair for production and subtle touch. This combination of skills is audible throughout on the album, but is especially noticeable on the deep electro of "First Impression", where rave whistles appear amid squelchy bass tones or on the acid bleed and warm chords of "Subtraction". Bunnik may be mining well-known tropes and paths, but it is to his credit that he manages to squeeze new shapes and sounds from them, as the ghostly techno groove of "Rare Education" demonstrates.

Unten - (9:33) 131 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
from $1.49
Review: Modeselektor's label provides a neat soundtrack for two sides of clubbing on its latest release. "Oben" (German for upper floor) is built for the kind of peak-time action its title suggests and sees Fjaak let loose with a slamming, relentless rhythm, heavy drums and a cut-up of the "Amen" break, while a detached vocal witters away in the background. By contrast, "Unten", which is German for 'bottom' - or, in this context, 'the basement' - is more considered. Cavernous, spacious kicks and heavy claps provide the basis for a chord sequence that flits and floats through the arrangement as randomly as conversations at an after party.

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.

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: The diverse musical tastes of Phillip Solman are evident once again on this second round of remixes tied to his fine 2014 album Decay. There is something for all fans of contemporary techno here as ERP (aka Gerard Hanson), Don Williams, Johannes Volk and Traumprinz all contribute to proceedings. Typically the ERP revision of "Decay" recasts the album's title track as rough, bouncing electro whilst Mojuba boss Don Williams flushes "Track 93" with new levels of Motor City indebted urgency over a throbbing low end bass groove. Mr Volk turns in a fine melodic tweak of "Parallaxis" though it's fairly overshadowed by the epic orchestral rendition from Giegling artist Traumprinz.

Review: There's a formidably tough and intense feel about this collection of no-holds-barred techno slammers from Ansome, aka London-based producer Kieran Whitefield. The pounding title track sets the tone, with clanking, industrial hits and distorted noises riding a thunderous kick drum-driven rhythm. The accompanying remix ups the tempo considerably, and is so fearsome it probably shouldn't be played to small children or elderly relatives. Elsewhere, there's some wayward techno-funk in the shape of "Clodgy", a bubbling splurge of foreboding late night murkiness ("Halyard Hitch"), and a sprightly - if tough - trip into horror-influenced analogue funk territory ("Kitty"). All six tracks are, as they say, "nails".

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.

Review: Here's something of a curveball from DFA: a surprise single from Italian misfits Ninos Du Brasil, whose dark, intense and percussive Novos Misterios album on Hospital Productions was one of the highlights of 2014. Here they continue on a similar tip, delivering two apocalyptic fusions of surging, low-end electronics and dense Latin percussion. "Aromobates NDB" sets the tone, with discordant effects, delay-laden electronics and powerful live percussion being layered atop a sludgy, slow techno rhythm. "Cleilia Cleilia" ups the ante, delivering a 134 BPM techno smasher built around dense tropical melodies and nightmarish percussion. Not for the faint hearted, but unsurprisingly sublime nonetheless.

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: 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.

Review: Having firmly established himself as a mainstay of the Hotflush family Locked Groove is back on the label once more with some of that ultra-modern 4/4 business. Interestingly "Enigma" points in some way back to the UK bass roots of Scuba's label with its grimey horn stabs, albeit in the context of a haunting house track. "Wandering In A Cage" is a more typically slick tech house jam with a dubby lilt to the synths and a brooding atmosphere for those who find the horns on "Enigma" too much. That said, it's the lead track that gets the remix treatment, first from Scuba who weaves a more wistful arrangement around those hooky stabs, before Locked Groove's own "Dub Mix" shuffles up the samples a touch for a different rhythmic flavour.

from $1.49
Review: It's been interesting to see Le Texier's gradual shift towards purist techno and "Valiant", the first track on this release, could be a Jeff Mills composition. Over gargantuan kicks, he lays down a bleepy sequence that moves up and down the tonal scale. Oscar Mulero's remix is typical of the Spanish producer's sound, with broken beats underscoring a dramatic, building filter that cover the original's bleeps in a dense cloud. "Divergent" sees Le Texier deliver a more intense version of 90s techno and its distorted kicks and merciless claps sound more like Luke Slater than Mills. Mike Storm's ravey take on "Divergent" completes this flawless underground release.

Review: After sneaking out singles for the likes of Futureboogie and Astro:Dynamics over the past couple of years, it's time for Crackazat to step up to Local Talk with his limber and expressive brand of synth-rich deep house. "Candle Coast" features a simmering garage swing in its rhythm and keys that could sit neatly in a Strictly Rhythm classic, but it's a track piled high with tension despite the easy-bumping surroundings. "Dancrodile" takes a more leftfield direction into tropical flavours with its bright and breezy keys and shuffling ethnic percussion, and then "Silent Sing" goes ranging out towards a proto-techno jazz fest that would make the Motor City originals well up.

Review: While previous releases from Rene Pawlowitz's 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: Sims and Degiorgio's Machine parties have reinvigorated London's techno scene and it's fair to say that the label is having a similar effect. At a time when their peers have either fallen into a minimal hole or are rediscovering their hastily assembled Goth pasts, the duo keep their heads down and focused on making deadly techno. The title track comes from Sims' studio and is a driving, filtered beast fuelled by razor sharp percussion. On "Strike 2", Sims notches up the pressure, with dark droning pulses joining the rhythmic heaviness. Degiorgio also acquits himself well; "Dark Fire" is like a distant cousin to "Strike 2", covered in splurging acid lines and ticking percussion, while "Dread" is led by tough drums and a brooding hoover bassline.

Played by: Joseph Terruel
Review: By sampling a famous scene from Scarface for this release's first track, is Delroy Edwards, like Tony Montana, trying to say: "You need people like me so you can point your fuckin' fingers and say, 'That's the bad guy'"? With an EP title like Kickin' Butts!! it's certainly possible, and he's the type of artist that's made it known he doesn't care what others think of his music. It's a minimal five-track EP overall and very lo-fi, none more so than the Steve Poindexter-styled "Str8 Fuckd" and on the swirling, metallic phase action of "Insane In The Membrane". Edwards throws down a basic hip hop beat in "Die Motherfucker" while it's the title-track that provides this release with the most dynamic moment of the lot.

Review: Richard Smith, AKA L/F/D/M, made his debut on Optimo Trax in 2013, with an EP bristling with analogue acid and robust machine jams. Last year's follow-up for Clan Destine Records, LHF 3, was similarly minded. This debut album switches things around a little, supplementing his usual hard-wired, hypnotic rhythms, motorik attitude and hazy melodies with a gaggle of more experimental cuts (see the freaky ambience of "New X" and new wave-era shuffle of "Book of Five"). It's not a dramatic stylistic leap, of course, but one that makes perfect sense.
