Review: Jordan Alexander's been rinsing it under his Mall Grab moniker, and every release since his debut back in 2015 has been hotly tipped by us here at Juno towers. EP's for Church, 1080p and Collect-Call have now earned him a spot on Unknown To The Unknown, one of our favourite labels and surely one of the most diverse, too. "I've Always Like Grime", as the name implies, is a house track made by someone who listened to high doses of Crazy Titch and Plastician back in the day, but "Black Palms" does its best to distance itself from the UK thanks to some pretty nasty acid bumps, and "Menace II Society" heads to Chicago with its singular vocal sample and dusty house flex. Sick!

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.

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: 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.

Release - (7:13) 125 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
from $1.96
Played by: Jay Lumen
Review: Smith originally made his name during the late 90s with a particularly infectious crossover sound that was dubbed 'party techno'. It seems that in the intervening years, he has veered down a darker avenue, especially if this release is anything to go by. The title track still follows the basic premise of the party sound - the incessant, rolling groove, nagging percussion and crowd-pleasing filters - but the sound is more cavernous and darker, the kicks more resonant and tougher, the percussion ticking away in the background. "Release" combines this sound with a tough, Reese bass, but the most visceral track is "Bells of Odin". As its title suggests, it revolves around a cacophony of bells and concrete kicks that sound like they were summoned down from Valhalla.

Music For Two Kalimbas - (5:39) 65 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
from $1.96
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: Fresh from delivering a typically obtuse set of techno reworks on Russian Torrent Versions, Voiski pops up on Dekmantel with a poignant, and perfectly formed five-tracker for their UFO series. There's something particularly picturesque about the cascading synthesizer melodies and mournful chords of ambient opener "Go To A Mountain & Cry For A Vision", while there's flickering beauty to be found amongst the ragged electronics and hypnotic rhythms of "Happy Piece For Happy People Piece". Voiski flexes his futurist-meets-industrialist muscles on the angular but melodious "Seriously No", before treating us to a dash of metronomic Motor City deepness on "Come Back! Nothing is Forgiven!". Finally, he blends rising and falling synthesizer lines with punchy electro beats on the trippy "Drama In The Futurists Cabinet".

Consignia (Yaleesa Hall dub) - (6:39) 125 BPM
from $1.96
Review: The apparent 'necessary alias' of an established recording artist, Kamera has well and truly been welcomed into the Phantasy Sound fold with two releases so far that have helped further distinguish the label's ever-refined voice. A pilgrimage up the unforgiving French mountain Ventoux inspired Kamera's prior Phantasy release, and now the lead track from that single, "Consignia", is treated to a pair of high profile remixes. The raw, deep techno Truncate has pioneered is deployed to great effect on his remix, reducing Kamera's fierce original to a calmer rhythmic patina augmented by a neat, sharp vocal hook. Occupying a much ruder place is the Yaleesa Hall Dub mix, with the Will & Ink artist recalling the odder end of the UK bassline spectrum.

Review: Tensal is the side-project of Hector Sandoval, who is better known for his work as Exium. On F-Forma, he refines his sound to deliver four solid, heads-down DJ tools. There isn't a huge difference between these arrangements - the first and second are loopy, tracky affairs, the fourth is somewhat heavier - but "3" is the most impressive as Sandoval uses heavy tribal drums and hand-raising filters to maintain his audience's attention. The only divergence from this script comes on the fifth and final "Forma". Instead of pounding, loopy beats, the Spanish producer delivers a subtle, mysterious-sounding broken beat arrangement that showcases his diversity.

Review: The man Wolfgang Voight provided some inventive and pioneering techno under his Wassermann guise, one of many. "W.I.R." was released in 2000 and was a driving serving of pop-inflected techno. Frankfurt techno legend Sven Vath also stepped in, assisted by Roman Flugel, to deliver a grinding industrial techno remix that these days could easily be compared to the work of Ancient Methods. Kompakt Records alumni Tobias Thomas and Michael Mayer's remix however is by far the best and encapsulated the label's timeless aesthetic on this wonderful excursion through emotive and ethereal house sounds.

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.

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".

Review: One of Artefakt aka Robin Koek and Nick Lapien's first records was The Fifth Planet, which appeared on Delsin. Now the duo surfaces on another local Dutch labels for Theory. Lapien is better known for his ebm/wave-influenced work as Metropolis, but this release sees him return to deep Detroit-style techno. The title track effortlessly marries acidic pulses with soaring string melodies over a jerky rhythm. "Moving Hori-zon" follows a similar path with 303s and atmospheric synths singing in unison over an angular groove. The pair take the tempo down but don't abandon their love of spell-binding melodies on closing track "Solaris".

from $1.96
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: Ashley Burchett follows up last year's Versions on Token with a second installment. This latest volume also shines a light on the UK producer's musical evolution. While the busy, rhythmic sound that underpinned his earlier releases is still audible on the rugged "Transantarctic (Polar Version)", it only tells part of the story. "Like a Light (Berlin demo)", with its insistent chords and scuffled dub beats tug at that city's musical legacy. The Substance remix of "Morodem" meanwhile, sees Burchett fuse a pulsing disco groove with cold steely percussion and a spiky rhythm. The final piece in this reinvention sees Burchett go back to Berlin albeit this time for the Klockworks-style dense workout that is "Behind the Sun (Re-Kon Dub)".

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.

from $1.96
Review: Part one of this Funk 22 Light Years Series Luke Slater is turning out at the moment on his Mote-Evolver label took in remixes from Token's Phase and Ben Sims with a classic '97 PAS remix of Dungeon making the cut too. For part two, Slater looks towards Ovum boss Josh Wink who turns in a progressive builder that's slightly more melodic and trippier than the original "Kat". It's tech house shake is undeniable! Meanwhile, "Kat" itself is tribal, uptempo and proper '90s looped techno. It's an EP of two halves - so which one are you: tech or techno?

Review: Jeroen Search kick-started Len Faki's SPC sub-label back in 2009 and now the Dutch producer brings down the curtain on it with Z. Spread over nine tracks, it showcases his lean, angular take on techno. "Metta" and "Karuna" are perfect examples of his stripped back approach, with tonal bleeps teased out over high-paced rhythms, while "Tensile Force" sees him lay down nightmarish synths over a pulsing, pumping bass. However, there are exceptions to his usual dance floor techno sound; "Upekkha" is a minimal house groove in the DBX vein and "Compressive Strength" is a haunting, spooky ride. As farewells go, it's an impressive one.

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: 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: 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: We've noticed that it's always a special surprise from France's Versatile, and more so in the last few years since the label has truly began to diversify into countless genres, themes, and acoustic selections. This time we have a more worldly release from Gilb'R and the rest of the crew, one which sees the label boss team up with Abu Sayah and King Ghazi for "Houran", an Eastern meditative swarmer with a deeply mystical air running through its pipes. The dance aspect comes through the remixes: Gilb'R himself adds a bundle of drums and sequenced bass to the Middle-Eastern acoustics of "Shamaleh", Versatile veteran I:Cube spins "Houran" into a brooding techno slitherer, while SEX TAGS kingpin DJ SO-PHAT reinterprets the same tune under a much stringer dose of opiates. The uncredited dub version adds extra juice to an already sublime release. So very much recommended!

Review: Rohan Walder clocks in for this third Randomer outing on Clone's Basement Series in as many years, with Concierge arriving as the Londoner's first 12" transmission of 2016. The template is pretty much laid down now for the Basement series and there is always some real gratifying techno to be found from those who step up to contribute. Title cut "Concierge" finds Walder's well-documented talent for crafting unique drum patterns really come to the fore on a dramatic, meaty production and sits well next to the more bugged out B-side. "Woodwork" is, in a word, trippy, leading out like Felix Da Housecat's "Kickdrum" before veering off down a wormhole of crazed percussive notes and mangled samples that gets increasingly crazier as it progresses - we really need to hear this one on a big system wow.

Review: According to Infrastructure NYC head Function, this compilation was compiled like an album and involves not only the core group of artists but also connects the dots between the label's past, his Berghain 07 mix CD for Ostgut Ton, the legendary Sandwell District days and the respective history of the artists. Infrastructure Facticity spans "a narrative ranging from lush, ambient electronics and post-club diversions, to contemporary club techno and back again." British artist Robert McNally provides the artwork and musically the highlights are not so much the dancefloor ready bangers, which are mainly quite good, rather the moments of restraint such as Vatican Shadow's brooding and almost Boards Of Canada sounding "Swords Over Paradise", the slow burning reduced acid of Cassegrain & Tin Man's "Open Sea" and Rrose's finest moment yet, "Cephalon", which can barely be described in words!

Review: Tale of Us launch their Afterlife label in style with the Realm of Consciousness compilation. Bringing together some of the best-known names in contemporary techno as well as a group of newcomers, it moves effortlessly between esoteric moods. Tale of Us contribute the ambient intro, while Monoloc and Woo York are both in more mellow form than usual on the melodic "Phoenix" and "Poseidon" respectively. Meanwhile, Recondite contributes the sad melodies and throbbing bass of "Murphy's Law" and Locked Groove balances supernaturally beautiful hooks with powerful bass pulses on "Emeralds". Even more dance floor-focused tracks, like Obscure Shape & SHDW's "Die Wiederkehr", are filled with trancey melancholia.

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!

Review: Oscar Mulero's other label celebrates its fifth anniversary with this mammoth compendium. For fans of the Spanish imprint's club techno there is no shortage of material to get excited about; the Lewis Fautzi remix of Exium's "Nucleoid" is a hypnotic groove par excellence, its confluence of acid and droning pulses arcing to a tantalising climax, while Christian Wunsch and Exium once again represent the tough industrial and dub-meets-noise sound of the label on "Emission Lines" and "Biolag" respectively. However, there is also a more musical, reflective side to Poelgroup's sound. In this regard, 5 Years delivers most impressively with the chilling strings of the Architectural project from Reeko as well as the Spanish producer's cinematic, break beat-led reshape of Jonas Kopp's "M31".

Review: It's hard to believe that it's been a decade since the release of "Detroit". To celebrate double figures, its author has released a sprawling "10 Year Anniversary mix", alongside the original version. The party doesn't end there though, and Dirtybird has also selected some impressive producers to rework it. Unsurprisingly, Marc Houle's take is a slinky, stripped back affair, while Octave One's interpretation mines the kind of tribal, percussive sound that the Burden brothers have made their own over the past two decades. Fused with the original version's brooding synths, it makes for a intoxicating techno groove. Finally, Visionquest bring the curtain down with a laid back, groovy house take on this modern-day classic.

Review: Tel Aviv duo Red Axes continue to make a name for themselves after releases on I'm A Cliche and Hivern Discs. This time they're doing their thing for Thomas Von Party's Multi Culti out of Montreal and it's not bad at all! "Waiting For A Surprise" is cheeky indie house with some catchy vocals and a fine groove guaranteed to pack a dancefloor. "The Metal Bender" is on a more cruisy and atmospheric vibe, sounding like something on Kompakt and perfect for the after-hours. On the flip is "Hope" which merges said indie sensibilities of before with a minimal house vibe which is on the more sinister and druggy tip, showcasing their knack for a variety of grooves in their arsenal.

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.
