from $1.49
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.

from $1.49
Played by: Josh Wink
Review: Amsterdam's Field Records is hardly renowned for its productivity; this compilation of music from the label's growing roster of artists - simply titled "Collection" - is only the imprint's 12th release since it launched in 2008. Given the renowned quality of their deep, woozy, Detroit-influenced offerings, that's something of a shame. Still, this is a real bonus for anyone turned on by their winding ambience, stargazing IDM, crackly minimal and floor-friendly Motor City style techno. Highlights include the surging analogue techno pulse of Viski's "A Star In Your Head", the bubbling, immersive ambience of SYS's "Radius", and the retro-futurist fun of Resoe's "Outer Dimension", but it's all pretty tasty.

Caldera - (8:53) 126 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
Caldera by Recondite on Hotflush Recordings Cue Track
DRGN2 - (7:10) 126 BPM
from $1.49
Review: It's fair to say Lorenz Brunner's profile as Recondite has rocketed in the two years since he last appeared on Hotflush with DRGN / Wist 365 which is largely due to getting scooped up by the Ghostly International label for last year's widely praised Hinterland LP. A lot has happened stylistically with Hotflush in this period too, though recent output suggests the label is swinging back to the sort of techno Recondite is known for. A notion qualified by this new single. The A-side provides a sparse and broken techno image that may have well found its way on to Scuba's Sub:stance mix back in the day had it been around then. Meanwhile on the flip, Recondite goes for a heavy and metallic, yet soulful, sound which will appease the rootops of Ibiza revellers to the grey, concrete clubbers of Berlin.

80's Drugs - (5:45) 123 BPM
from $1.49
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.

from $1.49
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.

Played by: Talker
Review: Dominic Fernow dons his Prurient hat for this split release with Karl O'Connor as Ugandan Methods. As you might expect, it's not for the light-hearted; "Call 1" features the Downwards boss' dense, grainy broken beats mixed with Fernow's wounded screeches amid bursts of white noise. "Call 2" is built on a similar approach, but this time the churning noise and dense drums are interspersed with dramatic, dark synths that spiral and twist. The third "Call" provides a surprise, heading back to the loopy techno of early Downwards, but it's only a temporary deviation and the fourth and final "Call" sees the duo deliver a drum-led, droning rhythm.

Tangled Paths - (7:00) 126 BPM
from $1.49
Review: This is the first Orphx release on Sonic Groove this year and it sounds like there has been no change to the Canadian duo's modus operandi. "What Will Burn" is a pulsating groove that sounds increasingly hypnotic and menacing as it snakes its way over steely drums. "Drowning For You" is similar in sound to 2010's Black Light release - also on Sonic Groove - its brooding bass underpinned by chattering beats and percussive volleys. Finally, there's "Tangled Paths". Less oppressive than Orphx's usual approach, its stepping rhythms and lumbering drums suggest that Oddie and Sealey are sometimes not quite as serious as their catalogue suggests.

Review: New York's venerable Mister Saturday Night imprint - an offshoot of Justin Carter and Eamon Harkin's party series of the same name - has spent the last couple of years building a reputation as a go-to label for those who like their house and techno eccentric and left-of-centre. Here, they present a showcase of their output to date that mixes previously vinyl-only singles - see Lumigraph's "Yacht Cruiser", the murky jazz-house flex of Archie Pelago's "Brown Oxford" and General Ludd's sweaty "Woo-Ha" - with a swathe of previously unreleased cuts. These are uniformly excellent, with the murky future voodoo of General Ludd's "C" and Archie Pelago's jazz-funk jam "Cinema Club" standing out.

Review: Spanish outpost Polegroup is the archetypal techno label, and Kwartz is a purveyor of the finest techno workouts. After having released artists such as the US' Developer, the nomadic Kwartz touches down on the label with two daring and sublimely bleak tracks for the midnight hour. Both "Form & Void" and "Breakage" are perfect Berghain tracks for the likes of Dettman or Klock, but that's not all - Reeko and Exium remix the former and the latter respectively, turning up the power considerably and making things that little bit heavier.

Review: MOS Deep travel into the uncharted waters of Glasgow on their latest release, securing The Haggis Trap from rising production talent Stephen Lopkin. Some four tracks deep, this EP sees an approach seems perfectly in line with Aroy Dee's label. Take for example "The Haggis Trap" which fluctuates superbly between moments of calm and acid drenched chaos or the superb hi tech jazz stylings of "Catherine's Track". Meanwhile, the superbly titled "Let's All Talk About Me" shows Lopkin can lay down dusty kicks with the best of them whilst "Mugs Alley" expertly demonstrates his talent for melody.

Raptor (Will Berridge remix) - (7:16) 62 BPM

Review: In addition to his work as one half of Mista Men, London via Doncaster producer Ryan Aitchison has been making solo moves under his Mella Dee guise these past few years with appearances in all the right places (think Wolf Music, Shabby Doll and Sccucci Manucci). In fact Mella Dee's featured on two of the latter label's releases so it's little surprise to find the producer popping up on the affiliated Manucci's Mistress operation. The Feel It Out EP sits snugly between house, techno and bass music with the lead cut featuring a rather vicious sub bass line and some superb vocal edits, whilst "Raptor" opts for a moodier UKG meets snapping techno flex. Do check the smudged out bass refix from Will Berridge too.

Review: Given how prolific he's been across multiple aliases these past few years, you can forgive Boris Bunnik for the lack of output that's characterised his year so far, with just the sole Versalife 12" for Clone's Store Only Series issued. A return to his main creative concern Conforce is most welcome then and the Depth Over Distance EP suggests the Dutchman's production powers are fully recharged. Opening with the title track, Conforce's talent for captivating spacious lines and crisp refreshing drum programming is on full display whilst "Plateau" veers off into abstract territory. Powered by supple arpeggios and powerful kicks, "Rendez-vous" feels like Conforce at his most floor focused whilst "Closer" ends proceedings on a haunting, ambient note.

Review: Given his phenomenal track record and no-nonsense approach, the arrival of a new Robert Hood album - albeit under his alternative Floorplan alias - should send a tingle of excitement down the spine of any self-respecting techno connoisseur. Paradise, his first album as Floorplan, largely eschews the intergalactic flavours of 2012's Motor: Nighttime World 3 (we say largely, as the hypnotic "Change" is undeniably Detroitian in outlook), in favour of tracks that take his rolling, stripped-back aesthetic in a variety of different directions. So, we get the funk-sampling "Baby, Baby", the soulful shuffle of "Never Grow Old" (deep house techno, anyone?), and the rush-inducing, piano-laden blast of "Confess". Impeccable... as usual.

Review: The man from Detroit known as Brooks Mosher reports for duty on Dolly for a third time, brandishing a quartet of signature cuts! As with output on Steffi's label as a whole, there is little extra that needs saying about Don't Say Goodbye, with Mosher perfectly calibrating each of the four productions for optimum usage by any self respecting house DJ. The barrage of percussion and wonderfully uplifting pads that characterise lead track "Phoenix" sets the tone nicely, and is a considered highlight of the release along with the dark and sweaty vibes of "Falling". Another one for the box from Dolly!

Review: Danny Tenaglia is a stone cold legend, but his profile has waned significantly over recent years. Given that it's 25 years since the release of his first production, this first contribution to the Balance series - is well timed. Pleasingly, it seems Tengalia still "has it it". Throughout the collection, the veteran NYC DJ maintains a fearsome energy level, mixing things up via a track list that spans chunky tech-house, darkroom tribal, heavily percussive fare (see Michel Cleis' dub of Basement Jaxx's "Mermaid of Salinas") and intelligent techno revivalism (Dax J's brilliant "Dreamscape" and Ho's "Deletion 3"). It is, of course, an impeccable selection, as you'd expect from a man with Tengalia's undoubted pedigree.

Review: Michigan-based North lake, AKA producer Isaac Delongchamp, has previously impressed with 12" singles that effortlessly join the dots between woozy acid house, alien techno and murky, off-kilter deep house. Here he continues the trend with a pleasingly varied, electronic and analogue-sounding four-tracker for Permanent Vacation. There's much to admire, from the ambient period Aphex Twin melodies and hypnotic rhythms of "Isoteric", to the skittering 808 electro-meets-dub house wooziness of "Prism". Arguably best of all, though, is "Mobius Tapes", a shuffling fusion of tumbling melodies, bulging electronic sub bass and a fine, techno-influenced deep house groove.

Review: If you are a fan of 2020 Vision with a keen understanding of the online electronic music community you will probably be content with the content that's preceded the release of Content, the label's 20th anniversary compilation. Yet how does the multi-format release shape up against the pre-release hype? Well this second sampler features a brand new cut from Simian Mobile Disco as well as fresh remixes of 2020 classics from Matthew Herbert and Cassy, which says it all really! SMD lead the way with "Parson's Nose" which is Jas and James at their most melodically languid and involving, whilst Cassy adds some notable chunkiness to "Get On Down," David Duriez's 2002 release on Ralph Lawson's label. The idea alone of Herbert remixing Maya Jane Coles is filled with intrigue and his resultant take on "Senseless" is resolutely strange without losing any dancefloor impact.

Review: As head of Fachwerk along with Roman Lindau and Sascha Rydell, Mike Dehnert has cultivated a weighty brand of techno that still contains a noticeable element of funk. He's also the most prolific of the three, with countless digital albums produced over the years in addition to pair of long players issued on Delsin and Fachwerk and his occasional dalliances with other labels like Echocord and the Clone Basement Series. Outside of Fachwerk, Marsel van der Wielen's Delsin is perhaps the one other label you'd closely associate with Dehnert and it's little surprise to see the Dutch imprint collar him for the 12-track Lichtbedingt. Described by the label as "yet another subtle evolution away from the chord driven, functional sound" Dehnert was initially known for, the album incorporates moments of beatless electronic experimentalism, broken bass, and swinging house, with the results still resolutely Dehnert!

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.

from $1.49
Review: Better known by his birth name Chris Finke as a purveyor of serious techno on Mote Evolver et al, in his Bodyjack guise Finke is having a lot of fun whipping up UK-rave fuelled boompty bangers, which makes it something of an inevitability that a partnership with UTTU would be on the cards. The EP title issues the command, and who are we to argue when the bass comes as thick and slimy as it does on "Brock Out", replete with crafty sample drops and a rattling set of drums that will reform your bone marrow. "That's What She Said" is no less rude, maximizing on dirty drum machine beats and sleazy synth and vocal licks that conjure up a modern update of Dance Mania's deviant soul. DJ Haus remixes the latter jam into a garage-y belter with the wobbliest bass and a mean kink in the groove.

Review: Ever since JD Twitch rebooted Optimo Music, it's been the irregular transmissions from Glasgow act Golden Teacher that has hit the spot each and every time. The amalgamation of two diverse bands from the city -noise punk outfit Ultimate Thrush and analogue house duo Silk Cut, Golden Teacher first emerged on Optimo Music early last year with a pretty apt description of sounding like "Arthur Russell's Dinosaur L jamming with Bobby O, K Alexi Shelby, Liaisons Dangereuses and Imagination, with some voodoo drummers and Sly & Robbie". Steadily building up a reputation for some riotous live performances, Golden Teacher are a class above because they manage to distill this energy into their recorded output too. Party People features three such examples, with A-side cut "Love" the kind of production that sufferers of LCD Soundsystem withdrawal will embrace and cherish for years to come.

Review: Remarkably, it's been 11 years since Leipzig-based minimal techno producer Marko Furstenberg released his debut album, Gesamtlaufzeit. While he's been pottering away releasing singles ever since, Ghosts from the Past marks a welcome return to the full-length format. Like its' predecessor, it delivers a range of smooth, warm, hypnotic and dub-influenced techno missives, high on tactile textures and low on crusty textures. The result is a set rippling with intoxicating grooves, soft-focus rhythms, fluttering chords and woozy late night electronics. Wisely, Furstenberg inserts a number of sublime downtempo interludes to break up the flow a little, with the beautiful "Piano" standing out.

Review: Can D Carbone maintain the peak of his and industrial techno's plateau? Considering he's one third of Repitch Recordings with Shapednoise, yes. This release for the furbished MORD label follows editions from Radial, Paul Birkin, Bas Mooy and UVB. And as the label's catalogue numbers move further into double figures, Carbone serves up a dynamic four-track EP of blistering techno. "Irritating Collapse" is hard, '90s acid terror only slowed down, while "Origin" is sludgy, but still has that rough, Tresor-techno vibe. The beat and caustic metallic clusters of "Discernment" sound like they've come from a Gotham City sewer while the atmospheres and distorted bass stabs of "Machine Elves" are reminiscent to what can sometimes be heard in Milton Bradley's The End Of All Existence concept.

Voiski - "A Star In Your Head" - (7:45) 127 BPM
from $1.49
Review: The excellent Dutch label provides the first in a series of vinyl tasters for its upcoming compilation. Field is one of the few imprints that focus mainly on split releases and this record shows just how diverse its view is. Acronym's track begins with spacey ambience before moving into the kind of cold, pointillist techno that Terrence Dixon has pioneered. The two other tracks are tough and functional; Ben Buitendijk's "Colourblind" is a pumping, thundering affair, while Voiski chooses a more subtle approach for "A Star In Your Head". While the rhythm is steely and tough, the use of dubbed out drums and glassy percussion serve to lend it a less abrasive feeling.

from $1.49
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.

Review: At present, it seems that Jacob Korn can do no wrong. Hot on the heels of his brilliant EP1 comes this foray into retro-futurist techno for Uncanny Valley's Shtum offshoot. While something of a surprise to those used to his distinctive take on deep house, Korn is an old techno head (according to the accompanying press blurb, his first unreleased forays into production during the 1990s were in a techno vein). There's a genuine no-nonsense feel throughout, and plenty of audible references to the early '90s; "Backstar" and "Komputermukke" for example, both sound like vintage bleep techno records - all heavy sub, clattering machine drums and sparse melodies. The hypnotic, stab-heavy "Robot's Life Cycle" is probably our pick, but all four tracks are excellent.
