Review: Gerd Janson's label pulls together a heavyweight cast to rework "Children...", originally released on Running Back in 2015. While the original track drew on break beats and hardcore for inspiration, Kink's 'SP1200' version follows this approach to its logical, unwavering conclusion. Massive rave stabs gyrate their way over rolling hardcore breaks, navigating a path that is equal parts menace and euphoria. Janson's own edit of the Kink and Rachel remix is more understated and bubbly, with warbling electronic hooks bubbling up amid the lithe breaks. Finally, Justin Van Der Volgen turns in a deep, hazy house interpretation, with the US producer mapping out a sound populated by clicky percussion and hazy textures.

Review: This is the second full Fear-E release on Dixon Avenue Basement Jams and brilliantly recalls the glory days of Detroit techno and Chicago house. "Back to Basics" revolves around a jacking rhythm and a predatory bass that support a sweaty vocal. It's a classy basement track. On "What Ya Gonna", the tempo moves up a few notches as steely percussion and minimal beats accompany a lo-fi bleep sequence and eerie rave stabs, while "Band of Rubber" is a noisy, muddy groove. None of them can compare to "Sunrize in Avalon" however, which sees Fear-E appropriate the kind of liquid acid-soaked deep techno that Nu Era used to specialise in.

Review: Hector Sandoval's Tensal project is more linear and singular than his work as Exium, and on Archives G, he delivers a series of blistering club tracks. "G1" is a rough and rocky ride, with a metallic tribal drum pattern setting the tone of the release. "G2" is less abrasive, but still sees Sandoval drop a steely, percussive rhythm track. The Spanish producer uses it as a backdrop to unravel a twisting, rolling filter against. By the time he reaches "G3", the mood has darkened further and a predatory bass underpins the approach of grey filtered clouds. Sandoval ends the release in an unexpected manner, with the loopy "G4" drawing on Rob Hood's visceral minimalism for inspiration.

Review: Dystopian was one of the first labels to feature Recondite's music, and after a number of years, he now returns to the imprint. The title track is a stirring affair, with the German producer combining a gritty bass with dramatic, soaring strings. On "Thorn", he also puts a focus on the interplay between the earthy and the ethereal: tough, grainy bass and shaking drums provide the basis for an uplifting, hypnotic riff and brooding woodwind. On "Humid Green Haze", Recondite drops the tempo but the tone remains foreboding thanks to tinkling bells and sharp drums. However, Recondite's sound is best suited to the dance floor and on "Sol", he conjures up a sonorous bass and synths so melancholic they could have been lifted straight from a Kraftwerk demo.

Review: Bitter Music is Ali Wells's third studio album and manages the rare feat of combining experimentation with a focus on the dance floor. It means that the husky, breathy vocals and found sound ambience of "Exit" and the spooky tones of "Wax Apple" both sit next to the panel-beating techno of "Unelected" - possibly another one of Wells' political references - the eerie, rumbling drums of "Chatter" and the low slung menace of "I Just Can't Win". On other occasions, Wells articulates his ability to straddle both worlds in one arrangement, audible on the deeply disturbing shrieks of Aja Ireland over the gnarly rhythm of "Spit" or the tape dub cut up groove of "Rat Run". Ali Wells has matured as an artist but as Bitter Music shows, in the process he has lost none of his bile-laced anger.

Theme From Q - (7:20) 123 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
from $1.95
Review: The fourth installment on Objekt's self-titled label has been one of the most eagerly awaited releases of 2017. So is it worth the wait? "Needle & Thread" is an atmospheric, mesmerizing stepper, with the UK producer's lithe, snappy drums underpinning swirling synths, hallucinogenic keyboard squiggles and deft filter action. However, "Theme from Q" is the track that has been praised by all. A tribute to the now shut Basement Q club, it sees TJ Hertz set a dinky house keyboard line to hiccuping drums, pressure cooker builds and a meaty bass to create the most distinctive break beat techno track since Kevin Saunderson's Reese project. On this rare occasion, the hype has been justified.

Review: Despite his young age, Kobosil has already got a series of well-regarded releases to his credit, including a debut album on Ostgut. 105, his latest release for the label, will only serve to consolidate this reputation. "OOL" resounds to a pounding rhythm and rough, frazzled kicks, exactly the kind of track that is tailor made for Berghain's main floor. "Bei Nacht (178)" is of a similar disposition and revolves around a rolling, percussive groove and tough drums, while the aptly-named "Derange" sees the young German artist deliver a pacey, percussive workout. The most impressive track is "Backmask N"; a tough, pacey percussive roller, it hinges on the kind of sub-bass menace that Suburban Knight used to specialise in.

Review: Robert Hood has just put out an artist album under his own name for Dutch label Dekmantel. However, that release doesn't seem to have put paid to his Floorplan schedule, and he returns with this religiously themed release. The title track follows the same approach as usual for Floorplan, with the Detroit producer laying down a bumping, tracky rhythm and a screeching gospel diva vocal. On "Made Up in My Mind' and on a new 'Lyric' remix of 'Never Grow Old', a similar aesthetic applies, with uplifting piano keys and bouncy grooves providing the backing for euphoric vocals. The only exception is the jarring, grinding "'He Can Save You", but in general, this is a deeply spiritual affair.

Review: Thing is Hodge's first release on Livity in a few years and follows his recent split release on Peder Mannerfelt's label. It sees the UK producer flex his dance floor muscles. On the title track, shades of Octave One are audible as Hodge lays down a rolling percussive groove, interspersed with siren riffs. "Light Waves" is slower but more direct and sees him deliver a stripped back groove, replete with chiming bells and acidic tones. Finally, Hodge shows a more experimental approach on "Joe Likes to Dance": heavy claps and a stepping rhythm provide the backing for wailing police sirens and middle-Eastern sounds that twirl seductively.

Review: Hessle Audio mark the first release of their 10th year in business with a label debut from one of Bristol's finest. Head of the Timedance label and events series, Batu steps up with four tracks of driving percussion and oddball atmospherics. Starting off with the offbeat sci-fi groove that is the title rack, "Off Court" soon gets into some booming lo-end dynamics, complimented by some darkly emotive synth textures. "Nosema" is the most straight ahead effort on here: a tight and rolling groove (for sweaty late night weirdness) until the lush ambient epic "Don't" closes out the EP in top style. In addition to his hot releases on Dnuos Ytivil and Fringe White in recent times: this guy's on fire!

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: It's that time again where Dixon, Kristian Beyer and Frank Wiedemann serve up another edition of their Secret Weapons series which always lives up to its name; just they aren't that secret anymore thankfully! As always the Innervisions camp present a real mix up of names from across the board of house and techno and there's some pleasant surprises once again. Starting off with Belgian tech house heroes Raw District with the brooding and suspense filled "From The Inside" which is the kind of track you could really imagine Dixon playing to a festival crowd. Berlin legend Oliver Deutschmann (Falkplatz/Vidab) with the dreamy and hypnotic "Control" was great too. Elsewhere there's Southern German merchant of dark journey tracks Tim Engelhardt representing the new garde (alongside Bog) with "No More Words" featuring some wonky synth leads and minimal techno legend Marc Houle with the cheeky retro EBM jack of "Tomboyz". Honourable mention to the Valence/Delft affiliated GoldFfinch with the tough reductionist techno jam "The Hidden"

Review: Well, we knew that this day had to come some time soon, but we didn't realise it was going to hit us this hard. Regis, real name Karl O'Connor, requires no introductions so we're not going to write one, but what we will say is that plenty of people round the Junodownload HQ have been awaiting for his debut LP from 1996 with a noticeable level of hysteria. Gymnastics, along with a few other key releases, single-handedly launched Regis onto the UK techno scene and helped him to redefine it after the days of hardcore and house. Aside from the fact that this gear sounds as fresh as it did over 20 years ago, every tune on this thing is a keeper; the likes of "Allies", "Translation", "Sand" have been imitated relentlessly by all the techno heads over the years and, if it weren't for this album or this man, the likes of Barghain would not exist in the same way. Nuff said. Essential.

Review: Detroit innovator Rob Hood is the latest name to release on Dekmantel. The Dutch label and party organisers have put out work by an impressive array of artists, but persuading the Minimal Nation author is a true masterstroke. Shift, which arrives in time for the festival season, starts with the eerie "Preface" before Hood launches into the abrasive, metallic rhythm of "Idea" and "I Am", a clap-heavy groove whose central riff just keeps on building and building. There are echoes of Hood's minimal past on the loopy "Solid Thought" and the wiry funk of "Nephesh", but Shift captures Hood in big room mode and is the spiritual heir to the locked-on, peak time techno of the Detroit producer's Omega long player.

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.

Taking on the 1998 classic, techno superstars from across the globe have taken to their artfully darkened studios to create their own version of events, making ten new insights in total. From German techno powerhouse Ben Klock's frighteningly impeccable take to Harry Romero's rather more dancefloor-driven affair; Size 9's minimal injection progresses into an addictive bass loop and My Friend wraps things up with an abstract lesson in sound design, cutting sharp textures and flaccid bass tones to create something totally alien. A must buy.

Review: Skinnerbox have released on respected labels like Bpitch Control and Darkroom Dubs, and now bring their free-wheeling techno and house sound to Tiga's label. "Gender" sees the German duo deliver a raw, rolling groove that unfolds to out-there vocal samples. It's an unpredictable arrangement and is a welcome alternative to sterile house music. Turbo have commissioned a stellar cast to rework it; this includes Axel Boman, who starts with an epic, flute-laden intro before moving into a loose tribal groove populated by menacing horns, and Auntie Flo, whose take resounds to chiming bells and layers of organic percussion. As a digital bonus, Ellen Alien delivers a storming, acid-filled rework with the original vocals disappearing in the wake of militaristic claps and Mike Dunn-style riffs.

Review: Mark Broom should need no introduction, a legend on the UK electronic music scene, he is internationally renowned for both his production capabilities and outstanding DJ skills. It's no wonder that his tracks have graced the likes of Ifach (with Baby Ford), Blueprint, NON Series, M-Plant, Material and more. Not to mention his collaboration with James Ruskin as The Fear Ratio. "One Sound" is adrenalised and powerful techno that is so precise in its restraint: geared for some real tunneling moments on the dancefloor. The remix up next by Midwest hero DJ Hyperactive injects far more fury and futurism into it: perfect for the peak time transition. Finally "Myth" gets those Mr. Hood vibes happening with powerful in your face cyclicality and those mandatory claps on the kicks: wicked!

EXILE 008 B2 - (5:59) 129 BPM
from $1.95
Review: Exile is the label that veteran producer Johannes Heil set up with Markus Suckut, and on its eighth installment, there is a distinctly purist feel. "A1" is a firing percussive affair, led by tough, relentless drums and cold bleeps. It sounds like Sleeparchive at his most austere, combined with Millsian funk. "A2" revolves around a hypnotic organ riff that spirals into intensity thanks to a series of doubled up claps. Meanwhile "B1" is a searing, visceral groove, a proper heads-down affair that is supported by tribal beats and insistent hi-hats. "B2" rounds off the release with a storming big room workout, reminiscent of vintage Dave Clarke material.

Review: Los Angeles bassheads and Jelly Bean Farm bosses Squane and Rees are back with more nasty low down bass shenanigans on the Illumination EP. Starting out with the guttural street level grind of "Grable" before the brooding deep dubstep journey "Shards" takes you well into the void. Elsewhere, "Automotonic" goes for a more futuristic and dystopian vibe on this experimental cut full of bleeps and sci-fi sound FX creating some real atmosphere to immerse in. Closing out the release is "Aphotic" which introduces some industrial textures over its half time beats which make for some very rolling and trance inducing riddims this side of the Autonomic or Exit Records sound.

Review: For the third Failsafe instalment, Developer has tried something a little different. Despite the presence of "Get It On", which integrates Dan Bell and Robert Hood's minimalism with UK techno's loopy aesthetic, the US producer showcases a range of other influences. "Chain of Life" is an uptempo, string-heavy house jam, while on "Natives Calling", the Modularz boss fuses melodic Detroit techno elements with his trademark rolling sound. The biggest surprise however is "Snap Over". Led by thumb-clicking percussion and a hypnotic vocal sample, it will work on the dance floor, but it also hints at a deeper, indeed more melancholic personality behind one of techno's most renowned projects.

Review: Canadian techno maestro Mathew Jonson burst onto the scene in a big way in the mid noughties. One of his breakout tunes was in the form of "Decompression" released on Richie Hawtin's esteemed m_nus imprint. Now the 2005 dancefloor bomb gets a series of modern revisions by an all star cast. dBridge is starting with the "Ambient Pressure remix", an even more brooding and atmospheric than the original. The cavernous sonar bleeps, gloomy pads and sharp rhythms of the original remain, except for its signature 'techstep' style sub-bass: which is replaced by a gnarly, glitched out arpeggio. Autonomic and all round UK drum and bass hero dBridge steps up next, with an 'edit' but it's actually the breakneck junglist steeper that the track has been begging to be transformed into for years: it's worth the wait! Elsewhere, fellow British Columbian and Wagon Repairman Konrad Black appears with more great music after a long hiatus: he too returning to his UK influenced roots (don't forget some of his first tunes were on the likes of Ed Rush & Optical's Virus Recordings), albeit taking his cues from the more modern post UK bass sounds on his remix of the timeless classic

Review: Eli Escobar is a staple of New York's electronic music scene and on his latest release, demonstrates why he is held in such high regard. That said, the title track shows that he is also expert in house music from Chicago. It starts with a stripped back drum pattern, followed by a reptitive vocal, hissings hats, insistent acid and doubled up claps. The unfussy production sound and straightforward approach to arranging harks back to the classic sound of Larry Heard and Adonis. On "Back 2 Luv", Escobar makes a stylistic return to NY. While the drums are solid, the combination of Steven Klavier's soulful vocals and celebratory piano keys make this house music of the most uplifting variety. The Jamie 3_26 Alright Ronnie version, with its disco influences closes out the release.

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: Lake Haze aka Goncalo Salgado has a small but impressive catalogue that includes records on Creme and One Eyed Jacks, but arguably his best material has been reserved for Unknown To The Unknown. Here, he delivers two contrasting but impressive sounds. The title track is a rich, symphonic house track, its evocative strings and slightly cheesy keys calling to mind Ibizan sunsets. By contrast, "Apollonia" sees Haze get busy with his drum machine and Roland to deliver a furious acid workout that has shades of Armando. Meanwhile, DJ Boring offers another perspective to bear with his remix of the title track. Stripping away the melodies, he delivers a firing, bleepy workout.

Review: Senso Sounds is Oliver Huntemann's label for underground electronic music, based out of Hamburg and already racking up an impressive back catalogue of releases. Kickstarting a new series of EPs with exclusive tracks from various artists, Senso Sounds Level 01 ventures further into the abyss with four brand new killers from the roster. Starting off with boss man Huntemann and the brooding and adrenalised dancefloor drama of "Kamikaze", Denmark's Noir teams up with Brazilian Victor Ruiz on "I Am" (feat Cari Golden) and Italian Veerus delivers the druggy main room stomper "Mind Awake, Body Asleep". Finally Munich's Julian Wassermann serves up the EP's finest moment on with the devilish minimal tech house killer "Neurose" featuring the most razor sharp bassline you'll hear this year!

Review: Adamson has previously released on Eats Everything's Edible label, but this three-tracker showcases a darker side to his sound. It starts with the rough filters and stepping rhythm of "Meeting House", with the upcoming producer offsetting the dense sound with some ticking, metallic percussion. There is a similarly rough aesthetic at play on "Alphabet Song", with growling bass licks and doubled-up claps supporting a cacophony of tone-shifting vocals that pronounce letters of the alphabet in a suitably tripped out manner. The title track is the least visceral-sounding arrangement; Adamson favours tonal bleeps and a growling bass against a rickety rhythmic backdrop that rounds off an impressive, individualistic release

Review: For his latest full-length, post-dubstep innovator turned dystopian soundscape specialist Shackleton has joined forces with British-German singer-songwriter Anika. Her drowsy, chilling tones provide the perfect foil for the producer's alternately paranoid and ethereal musical compositions; stretched-out pagan epics that sit somewhere between the soundtrack for The Wicker Man, the wind-swept ambience of Firecracker's Mac Talla Nan Craeg - compilation, and the experimental sound collages of the Music Concrete movement. It makes for a heady, intoxicating and at times otherworldly listening experience, even if it features numerous pastoral elements. Prepare to be thrilled and scared in equal measure

Review: Hot on the heels of a fine new version of Truncate's 2014 single "7_1" comes this fresh EP of dancefloor dynamite from David Flores's best-known project. Appearing on James Ruskin's long-running Blueprint label for the very first time, Flores kicks things off with the no-nonsense techno roller that is "Terminal 5", a dark, brooding foray into pitch-black techno territory typical of the British label's output. "Process" is similarly minded but slightly more positive in outlook, with mildly foreboding electronics and a repeated vocal sample riding a rubbery techno groove. "Tribal Tool", an exercise in drum machine percussion and dense African drums, completes a rock solid package.

Alien Acid - (4:34) 127 BPM
from $1.95
Review: UTTU owner DJ Haus steps from the shadows to deliver a killer, acid-heavy release. "Hot 4 U" revolves around gurgling acid lines, firing percussion and a hardcore-sampling vocal intoning the track's title. Undeprinned by rolling snares, it makes for a euphoric affair. "Flange Attack" is a more murky arrangement, with grimy acid lines and dense percussive layers housing an insistent vocal snippet on repeat. On "Alien Acid", Haus moves into the kind of raw sound that Bunker dominates, as wiry 303 lines come together with miltaristic, doubled-up claps to create a bleak, dysoptian sound. This release serves as a reminder that apart from curating one of electronic music's most respected labels that Haus is also an impressive, accomplished producer.

"5th Dimension Groove" turns your brain inside out even more as the running groove swoops to sub-frequency levels before a stark bass roar enters the fray and turns everything on its head. Maceo has never been one-dimensional.

Review: Given her rising reputation in recent years, it's something of a surprise to find that Rembo is Karen Gwyer's first full-length excursion since 2013's Kiki The Wormhole on Opal Tapes. While that latter set was impressive, Rembi is arguably even better. For starters, Gwyer refuses to settle on one groove, following a glistening ambient opener with a fuzzy, IDM-influenced chunk of left-of-centre dancefloor techno, which in turn makes way for a beat-less slab of hazy synthesizer positivity. It's a pattern that continues throughout, as the talent American producer delivers bustling, redlined techno jams laden with dirt-encrusted synthesizer motifs, spacey IDM club tracks and picturesque electronic soundscapes that sidestep easy categorization.

Review: Stuart Li aka Basic Soul Unit has been releasing music on Dolly since 2011, but Wallow is his most dance floor-friendly release for Steffi's label. On the title track, a vocal snippet and soaring synths play out against a backdrop of insistent but understated kicks and crisp claps. "Radiate" is less subtle; it resounds to a bleep-heavy bass and a rough metallic rhythm before it plunges the listener into a sub-aquatic rush of synths and hardcore-sampling vocals. "Joyride" sees the US producer deliver a stripped back groove, underpinned by eerie synth lines, while Voiski turns "Wallow" into a leaner, more linear affair, bolstered by a relentless bass and a pumping rhythm.

Review: Seth Troxler's hometown features in the latest release on his label. Like the Play It Say It boss, Ataxia also hail from Detroit. However, their sound has more reference points with UK influences. "Time Original" is a pacy tribal groove, populated by tonal squiggles and frosty chords. It sounds like an update on what Swag Records were releasing back during the late 90s/early 00s (long before tech-house became a dirty term). On the title track, a tripped out vocal and more weird tones weave their way through an acidic underbelly, while Ataxia bring the release to a close with "Villains". More understated than the previous tracks, it possesses a similarly out there feeling thanks to its frozen filters and goofy vocal sample.

Review: Having established TRIP as one of the leading platforms for underground techno, its owner Nina Kraviz finally releases some of her own material. It's the Russian DJ's first output on the label and is her first since a series of records on Rekids. The title track is a tough, acid-focused affair that features bleeding acid lines, firing percussion and a repetitive vocal loop. On "You Were Wrong", Kraviz opts for a more tripped out sound; the rhythm remains tough and steely, but layered textures and another repetitive vocal sample - intoning the track's title - unravel over the arrangement. There is also a deeper, filtered version of "Wrong", all of which show that Kraviz is back with a bang.
