In Yer Face (Bicep Acid dub) - (6:26) 120 BPM
from $1.93
Played by: Aphreme
Review: For those of a certain age, the opening seconds of 808 State's 1991 rave anthem "In Yer Face" - a combination of memorable melody lines and loved-up chords - are still capable of setting the pulse racing. Bicep have taken on the task of updating Graham Massey and company's anthem for a new generation, serving up two fresh interpretations. Wisely, they emphasize the spine-tingling goodness of the Manchester outfit's chord progressions on their A-side remix, getting rougher, tougher and weightier as the track progresses. Their flipside acid dub - where electro-inspired breakbeats, heavy bass and floatation tank melodies are expertly combined with ragged TB-303 lines - recalls the similarly-minded thrills of DJ Parrot and Mark Brydon's 'Sunshine Dub' of DJ Mink's early Warp slammer "Hey! Hey! Can U Relate?".

Review: It's that time again: Sven Vath's powerhouse Cocoon Recordings presents the next volume in its alphabetically themed series and brings out all the big guns in typical fashion. There are many highlights, but for our money we'd bet on fellow Frankfurt homeboys Einzelkind, Robin Schulz & Rhythm Factory who team up for the bouncy, late night tech house of "N.2guts", masked Berlin techno impresario Redshape on the brooding dark journey track 'The Choice", Glaswegian legend Alex Smoke with the funky microhouse jam "Porridge" and of course Ovum Recordings man/Philly's finest Josh Wink with the droning peak time acid trip "Buoyantly Grounded". It will take you ecstatic heights like he has done previously.

Review: A big congratulations to Adam Beyer and his esteemed Drumcode imprint celebrating 20 years in the business. His techno powerhouse has continuously and effortlessly remained relevant, championing the work of fellow Swedish legends Cari Lekebusch, Joel Mull and Christian Smith, to late noughties heroes like Paul Ritch, Kyle Geiger and Pig & Dan to present day stars like Nicole Moudaber, Joseph Capriati and Luigi Madonna. There's a lot of serious peak time artillery on here, rest assured. But for us, the highlights weren't limited to Alan Fitzpatrick's uplifting and downright epic "Terra Firma" with its massive drop, head honcho Beyer and Mark Reeve's "Nine Of You" with its darkly fierce and tunnelling groove plus Truncate's killer remix of Dustin Zahn's "Miss You". Honourable mention to newcomer Boxia; he's surely one to watch if the banging "Revolution" is anything to go by!

Review: Tel Aviv's Moscoman returns to the always reliable ESP Institute for more of his infectious oddball grooves which continually defy categorisation. Much like fellow homeboys Red Axes and Autarkic, his sound sits somewhere between disco, house, synth pop, punk-funk and even balearic; and indeed that's the spectrum of sounds explored on his new album titled A Shot In The Light. There's some lo-slung, latin infused disco deepness on the "Mexican Cola Bottle Baby", trippy cosmo/psychedelic shenanigans on the hilariously titled "Losing My Wedge", the moody and entrancing journey that is the title track (which pushes the same territory as Barnt or Marvin & Guy) and there's even some darkwave electro: like on the epic closer "Death At The Funreal".

Jungle Love - (6:45) 129 BPM

Review: Following on from the release of his debut Trevino album earlier this year, Marcus Kaye celebrates another first - his inaugural release on Scuba's label. The title track is underpinned by a typically beefy Trevino low end and provides the basis for atmospheric chords and wave upon wave of jittery melodies. By contrast "Desecrate" is a high-paced techno number, powered by thunder claps and gristly bass stabs and "Mosaic", while less visceral, has an unquestionably functional feel thanks to the surging dub bass and pinprick acid lines that power it. Proving that he is a versatile artist, even when it comes to the dance floor, "Jungle Love" sees Kaye lay down a chord-soaked stepper.

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.

Bring It! - (5:22) 126 BPM

Review: Colin McBean is an unstoppable force at the moment isn't he! At the moment you say? Yeah too right; the guy never actually stopped his relentless pursuit of the perfect house and techno grooves since the '90s and this Conectionz EP is no exception. Starting things off in explosive fashion with the "You In Or You Out? (Sims Jacker edit)" with its relentless thud and crack of a 909 workout with funky bass and evil pads helped out by some generous reverb build ups; all you need really. The original version up next is more restrained deep house with that great vocal refrain repeating "live your life the way you wanna be free" the tracks aggression provided by those hissing rhythms. Finally "Bring It" is a soulful breakbeat number with soaring synth leads that is a great departure from McBean's normal style.

Review: Sangiuliano is an Italian DJ who has been associated with Adam Beyer through a release on Truesoul. Now he steps up for the Swedish DJ's main imprint with this killer big room record. The title track is a brooding bass-heavy affair that is very much in line with Beyer's own sound. On "Ghettoblaster" he mixes up the approach; break beats hip-hop scratches and tiny vocal snippets all come together over a moody jungle-inspired low end. While "Dutch Kiss" sees him explore a more house-oriented sound thanks to its hypnotic organs at its core is a robust bass that bleeps and spits furiously.

Review: For this expansive double-pack of reworks of tracks from Cassy's debut album, Donna, Will Saul has assembled an impressive cast of remixers. First out of the blocks is Marcel Dettmann, whose hypnotic, late night interpretation of "Move" fixes dubbed-out organ riffs to a bustling techno rhythm. Ron Bacardi's version of "All I Do" sounds like a cross between Twilo-era tribal house, and bumpin' old skool U.S garage, while Radio Slave is at his druggy, early morning best in stretching out "Keep Trying" (first on the club-friendly "Feel Raw" mix, and later on the K-hole embracing, pitched-down "100 Reasons Remix"). If that wasn't enough to set the pulse racing, there's also a brilliantly melodious and emotion-rich remix of "Feel" from Yoruba Soul.

Review: Christian Smith's Tronik imprint is still going strong after all these years and he delivers the goods once again. Paris' Oliver Giacomotto teams up with Denmark's Noir for the absolutely explosive peak time progressive house stormer "Reste"; strap yourself in for one of the most high octane tracks of this summer with an arpeggio that's to die for! Dubai's finest Raxon gets on board for a remix which gets more on the deeper techno tip but you soon find out it's one finely executed dark journey track with enough wonk in the melody to make the Life & Death crew step up their game; this one's fierce!

Review: Next up on Tiga's Turbo Recordings is Tel Aviv's Autarkic, with what he describes himself as "Industrial Techno tribal goth dub vibes for 2075 and beyond!" He starts out with the hazy and low slung groove of "Rotation! Rotation!" featuring some nice new romantic style vocals, chunky synth bass and exotic drums; sounds like Human League gone Middle Eastern safari. The remix by fellow countrymen and rising star Red Axes is way more energetic and will definitely work the floor a bit better than the original. Also "I Know" hammers the message home gloriously on this sweet slice of 80s synth pop served up in 2016 style!

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: 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: Atichgate is the third release from mysterious producer 04LM on Soma and consolidates his reputation as a purveyor of deep dub techno. That said, there is nothing introverted or reflective about this three-track EP. From the outset, he lays down a powerful manifesto; "Atich" rolls along at almost 130bpm and features mysterious synths rising up through its bass-heavy, pounding groove. The title track dispenses with melody altogether for a rumbling, grainy workout that centres on grainy percussion and an insistent, creaky filter. "Afterbyte" sees 04LM revert to a cleaner sound, and its solid kick underpins a wave of tranced out melodies.

Review: General Ludd is the stage name for Rich McMaster and Tom Marshallsay and Sunset Yellow is their third release on Mr Saturday Night. In keeping with the general tone and direction of the label, they offer house music with an offbeat twist. The title track fuses a stepping rhythm and broken beats with an insistent melodic stab that gets increasingly high-pitched as the arrangement unfolds. "Brilliant Blue" is more stripped back and revolves around a rudimentary bass, hollowed out drums and the occasional cosmic squiggle. Maintaining the offbeat approach to the end is "Amaranth'; with its heavy percussive bursts, dub effects and lunging rhythm it's the most dance floor-focused track on the release.

Up All Night Pt 2 - (5:59) 123 BPM
from $1.93
Review: Hot on the heels of his rather fine Phreeky single, Eli Escobar returns to Classic with two more hot-to-trot house hits. "Chaka Khan", in particular, is something of a retro-futurist treat, with the NYC producer expertly blending hip-house era breakbeats, tipsy chords, warehouse-friendly electronics and a swathe of old school vocal samples. It sounds like a guaranteed party-starter, like many of Escobar's nostalgia-tinted productions. "Up All Night Part 2" sees him revisit the title track of his 2014 album, expertly working selected disco loops into a bumpin', sweaty, hands-aloft house stomper. It rises and falls in all the right places, and sounds like it could be capable of causing serious dancefloor devastation.

Review: A third session of DABJ all-stars is upon us with supreme club cut outs from ODD, Neil Landstrumm's Modini collaboration and Casio Royale, who at this stage have only ever released with this label. ODD's "Stew" is a classic Roland drum track with dubby acid flecks thrown in for good measure while Modini turn up the heat with an electrifying peak-time banger with a rather amusing title in "Throbbing Thistle" - plus some retro-rave throwbacks. Casio Royale's double dropping B-side serves up a Geeman-like "Rubberband" styled track with "The Rhythm" while "Work This" is this 12"s sweaty hit with a production you could imagine going off at Ron Hardy's Muzik Box.

from $1.93
Review: As some of you may well know by now, mysterious Yorkshireman Kamera delivered a fine selection of moods and grooves on the Ventoux EP which were conceived during a series of gruelling training sessions while cycling Mont Ventoux. It recently received a first round of remix treatments by scene favourites such as Droid Behavior's Truncate and Malin Genie affiliate Yaleesa Hall. This second offering features ManMakeMusic's George Fitzgerald whose rendition of "Consignia" turns it into a darkly emotive journey track with layers of hypnotising pads over a cracking and relentless beat. Houndstooth's Throwing Snow steps up afterwards to present his makeover of "Ventoux" getting some properly glitched out breaks working marvellously beneath some lush and dreamy elements, creating a wonderfully hypnotising whole.

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: Shlomo makes a return to Darko Esser's label after the 2015 release Avadon. Despite being known as a techno producer the release starts with the title track beautifully fragile ambience and this mood continues with the tranced out beatless "MUM". The Taaipon boss edges closer to the dance floor with "The Ritual" but this track also has a mysterious edge and its swinging rhythm and broken beats emerge from behind eerie found sounds. "Obsession" sees Shlomo deliver an expertly weighted acid heavy dance floor techno track but its lithe rhythm means that it seduces by stealth rather than by force. All told it's a masterfully subtle release.

Review: Long before the current trend of EBM/industrial fuelled techno, Terrence Fixer was there, honing his now trademark style on his highly regarded Planete Rouge imprint as well as collaborating with Nitzer Ebb frontman Douglas McCarthy for several energised live shows over the years. For Berlin institution Ostgut Ton, he appears again with "Beneath The Skin", a powerful and brooding exercise in main room techno with equal parts tension and suspense. "Trace To Nowhere" features dramatic, reverb soaked vocals backed by trippy and hypnotic madness that even Mike Parker would stand up and notice. Finally "Immersion" provides a different and refreshing perspective from the Frenchman, going for an ethereal and emotive deep techno style that's perfect for drifting.

Review: Any new material from Luke Slater under the Planetary Assault Systems alias is something to celebrate, but rarely has the techno veteran dropped such an expansive set as Arc Angel. Boasting a positively overwhelming 20 tracks over three weighty slabs of vinyl, the first PAS album for five years is as spacey, hypnotic and intoxicating as anything in the British techno legend's vast catalogue. While mostly focused on atmospheric, Motor City influenced dancefloor futurism - and, let's face it, few do that better than Slater - Arc Angel also boasts a handful of inspired ambient cuts, some vintage, UK style "intelligent techno", and occasional nods towards UK contemporaries such as Surgeon, James Ruskin, Mark Broom and Oliver Ho.

Tell You No Lie - (8:33) 130 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release

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: 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: Matrixxman has spent much of his career collaborating with others, primarily like-minded producer Vin Sol. Here, he switches focus, joining forces with Beat Pharmacy man Brendon "Echologist" Moeller to deliver an eight-track assault of late night techno excursions. Hugely atmospheric - a by-product of both their selected sounds, and the trippy way in which the collection has been mixed down - the double-pack features acid-flecked hypnotism, balls-out early morning stompers, dubbed-out rollers, L.I.E.S style industrial crustiness, and the kind of gently psychedelic fare that would once have been described as "intelligent techno". In other words, the Black & White EP is a rock solid collection of dancefloor-ready techno cuts that touches on a variety of moods and sub-genres.

Review: Danish producer Henrik Koefod aka Erosion Flowis still only in his early twenties but has already reached a very high standard. Spotting his talent 3024 owner Martyn snapped up an EP from him last year and now follows it with a second "Spectrums" instalment. On "Better Way" the tempo is slowed right down to provide backing for an angelic vocal but in the main Volume 2 is all about the dance floor. He taps into the chord-heavy sound of 90s techno for the fist-pumping "Eclipse" while on "Syvv" a more stepping rhythm prevails underpinning a spine-tingling synth melody reminiscent of Slam's Positive Education.

Review: Marcel Fengler has certainly carved out his own style like the other Berghain residents as a producer. His cyclical, funky and above all functional DJ tools firmly wear their Robert Hood influence on their sleeve, all the while carrying some of the powerful and industrial undertones that come naturally given the aesthetic and sound of that famous room he plays, week in week out. For another outing on his own IMF imprint, the Kyu EP features some heavy artillery for serious techno DJs, highlights being the dynamic opener "Kyu" which couldn't be any more perfect an example of what 21:00 on a Sunday night at Berghain sounds like. On the flip the more hypnotic "Shitau" features Millsian style chimes and sonar bleeps balanced out by those soulful and emotive elements, creating pure futurist tension of the greatest kind.

Review: Bulgarian hardware maverick KiNK is back, this time on Singapore based Midnight Shift who have presented great releases previously by L/F/D/M, Mr G and John Heckle. First track "Chorus" features hands in the air synth stabs that resonate and modulate to a mighty crescendo over a dry, skittering rhythm. Second offering "Madame X" delves deeper on this low slung acid number, where the signature wobble of the Roland TB-303 faces off with a bare bones TR-909 rhythm; simple yet effective. Finally "Emotional Breakdown" goes for some off kilter electro flavour with its broken beat accompanied by emotive pads and spacey modular squeals on this fine example of deconstructed hi-tech soul.

Review: Matthew Styles is by no means prolific - just 12 releases in 10 years - but still manages to bring a distinctive touch to each production. In this instance, Styles' first EP for Ostgut following an appearance on one of the Panorama Bar samplers, there's a rough and bleary feel to each composition. This sensibility manifests itself in different ways; the title track is a stepping, broken beat affair laced with acid, while the contemplative "Wave 6" sounds like it was created by the Mike Huckaby-loved synth. The only out and out dance floor track, "Border", is also notable thanks to its shimmering, sleek chords and rolling house beats.

Review: The inlay art on this release says it all. Featuring a female face peeking through clouds and a blissed out heavenly body floating above her, it mimics the early utopian states imagined on early 90s dance music covers. The accompanying music also wears its influences openly. Daze, an Australian producer, previously released a trio of records for Lobster Theremin, but for this outing ditches much of the gritty tape noise that he had shrouded his previous work in. The title track is all wide-eyed synths and hyper-speed jungle breaks while on "Centuries Later" he slows down the pace to emulate Nexus 21 and Detroit techno. However, the main narrative on this release is the pre-jungle period and as "Xx" shows, Daze manages to capture the mixture of musical depth and high-speed rhythms that defined that period.

Review: Several Definitions, despite what the name may insinuate; is not a group rather one lone Swiss producer known as Jeremy. Appearing here for esteemed Berlin label Still Vor Talent, he presents four servings of tech house goodness on the You Are Not Alone EP. The original version of "Alone" is a dark and melodic journey track packed with the right amount of suspense and drama that'd make even the Life & Death camp up their game. The remix by Hatzler stays true to the original, but just gives it that extra amount of 'oomph' to play at the peak time slot. "Esmeralda" is also worthy of mention; this swirling and hypnotic trance odyssey is reminiscent of a more classic dance music style and is surefire magic on the dancefloor.

Review: Well isn't this a marvellous meeting: progressive house legend turned techno's dark lord Dubfire collaborating the pioneer of dark journey tracks (long before the Life & Death crew): the man from Bremen and Senso boss Oliver Huntemann. The dynamic duo team up for "Humano" where some ping pong delayed tom drums drenched in reverb create tunnelling trance induction atop of a slinky tech house groove; druggy dancefloor drama indeed! There's also some killer remixes on offer. Brazil's Victor Ruiz serves up his absolutely bangning peak time rendition while American producer Shaded's "Summer Skin Remix" certainly honours the trademark sound of both producers on this seething and slow burning dancefloor journey guaranteed to cause a headrush or two!

Review: Anthony Naples' blooming Proibito imprint was launched earlier this year with a record from Huerco S under his newly adopted Royal Crown Of Sweden alias, supplying the crunchy deep house of the R.E.G.A.L.I.E.R. EP. Maintaining the label's ethos to highlight rising talent from across North America, Proibito return here with Local Artist, a search engine vexing producer who seems to brandish affiliations with the rising Mood Hut collective based out of Vancouver. His/her self titled four track effort continues Proibito's dalliances with the rawer end of the 4/4 spectrum with cuts such as "Mr. Kiwi" and "004" notable for the viciousness of hammering cowbells and crisp hi-hats. Those seeking something deeper should turn to "Sun Raw" and "Mansion of Hours" which demonstrate Local Artist eminently capable of crafting dubbier and moody productions too.

Tsunan Sun - (8:08) 128 BPM
from $1.93
Review: Having enjoyed a little time off from releasing music, David Kennedy returns with a two-tracker on his Pearson Sound imprint. While flipside "Tsunan Sun" is naturally impressive, it's A-side "XLB" that everyone's been talking about. It's not hard to see why. After opening with sustained moody notes and gently pulsing electronics, the track builds into an intoxicating techno thumper, complete with alternately rising and falling synth lines, thunderous sub-bass, and a killer combination of stomping kick-drums, snappy snares, and seemingly relentless drum machine handclaps. Even by his standards, it's something of a colossal beast... and that's saying something.
