Review: It's no surprise that Chris Finke's latest Bodyjack release takes inspiration from electronic music's recent past, eg the '90s. However, the seamless manner in which he integrates these influences with modern house and techno are impressive. The title track features a menacing, time stretched bass unravelling over a choppy rhythm and tough drums, while on "Hydra Effect" the ghostly vocal of a lost raver echoes around the steely rhythm. Best of all is "Slowine Effect"; like the title track, it plunders the bass archives, and on this occasion it sounds like Random Noise Generation's "Falling in Dub" was the source material. Coupled with a vocal that sounds like it is repeating the name 'snow white' when it's probably just 'slowine', 33 it has hat magical lost sound.

Review: This duo is not from Massachusetts, rather Turin, Italy and focus on psychedelic / acid / techno vibes according to their Soundcloud profile; quite an apt description. They have appeared on labels like Involve and Enemy previously and now Germany's Odd Even for the Oblivion EP. "Nightcall" has a taste for the acid life that pushes that 303 to it's full limit like an Acid Test record over a tough beat, but it's the title track which really nails it: this is droning and hypnotic techno further fuelled by a well-executed acid snarl and a ferocious and shuffling rhythm. On the flip "Split String" sounds like a fierce Jeff Mills 909 live drum solo but then that chiming synth melody comes through with those claps on the kick, sounding more like a Rodhad cut. Great stuff!

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.

from $1.96
Review: Khemia is a label that was set up by the people behind the KAOS parties and has already yielded a release that featured both Aeternam Vale and Bronze Teeth. Now comes another split release, this time with the honours divided between industrial act Orphx and abstract artist Rrose. Fittingly, Rrose takes care of the 'solar' side; "Emboli" evolves from waves of abstract noise and whirring percussive glitches into a hypnotic groove. On the other side, Orphx are tasked with the 'lunar' element and fittingly, the mood quickly darkens. A throbbing bass prevails as the pair delivers one of their typically hypnotic, rolling rhythms.

Korgasmatron - (7:15) 121 BPM
from $1.96
Review: Back in the mid 2000s, Jake 'Rex The Dog' Williams was touted for future greatness on the back of a string of singles that joined the dots between Kraftwerk, synth-pop, '80s electro and melodious nu-disco. Somewhere along the way, he lost his mojo, and the releases began to dry up. Happily, Sicko - his first single for two years - sees him back at his imaginative, mesmerising best. The title track bobs and weaves brilliantly, lacing trippy, stuttering electronics and yearning chords on top of a sparse, beatbox electro-influenced Balearic house groove. "Korgasmatron" is arguably even better, with Williams brilliantly fusing dirty, bubbling bottom-end electronics and warped acid lines with a killer, rave style vocal hook.

Owls & Toucans (feat Haiku 575) - (7:42) 125 BPM
from $1.96
Review: Riva Starr's back everyone: look out! Our favourite Italian tech house prankster appears again on Jamie Jones and Lee Foss' esteemed Hot Creations imprint and it's tech house that's as punchy and as funky as you like it. "Dippina Side" is the kind of rolling main room groove for hedonists that'd make a Gruuv or Saved record pale in comparison. The remix by Neapolitan techno hero Joseph Capriati isn't as ferocious as you'd think, but definitely tougher with some big druggy breakdowns. Finally "Owls & Toucans (feat Haiku 575)" features some sexy and exotic Latin flair with those steel drums but then that adrenalised bump and shuffle comes rushing in complete with wacky synth lead and pitch shifted vocals; all the good stuff!

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: As one of the more distinctive minimal house operators in these times, Ion Ludwig makes for a snug fit over at Trelik towers, and with this three tracker it's not hard to see why his records are so highly prized these days. "46 LJ + Felix Ballad" is a refined groover with a fine balance between gritty low end chunk and gossamer top-end, working subtle hits of bass and illustrious string sweeps into the mix to great effect. "EM Carpet" meanwhile darts out into more obscure territory, keeping the beats to a minimum and focusing on warm and fuzzy synth tones cycling

It's Operational (Avalon Emerson remix) - (6:13) 126 BPM
from $1.96
Review: In case you wondered, Aussie-in-Berlin Timothy Sullivan's machine is definitely soft, though the music he makes is far from flaccid or floppy. "It's Operational" is, in fact, a rather fine trip into Italo-disco/acid house fusion, with early electro-style vocoder vocal lines and a dash of nu-disco sassiness thrown in. By Eskimo standards, it's pretty tough and intoxicating, but that's no bad thing. The CHIDA remix drags the track further towards shirts-off, camp-as-Christmas Italo-disco territory - in the process emphasizing the original's more obviously analogue elements - while Avalon Emerson chooses to re-calibrate "It's Operational" as a bustling chunk of raw tech-house intensity.

Vision (Marcel Dettmann remix) - (6:57) 125 BPM
from $1.96
Review: Matt Edwards once said that he works best when using just a few elements, and he applies that thought process to Vision with devastating effects. The title track revolves around a tight, fat drum loop, chilling synths and filtered, nagging percussion. Completing Edwards' 'less is more' sound is a pitch-bent vocal that pops in and out of the arrangement with a druggy awkwardness. It sounds like remixer Marcel Dettmann is in favour of a similar technique. The MDR boss leaves space for the vocal and eerie synth line, but sets it against a groove so murky that it's hard not to get lost in its swampy depths.

from $1.96
Review: Peggy Gou has had a busy debut year thanks to her opener on Phonica's white offshoot, and now two EP's out on Rekids in quick succession. Her sound is a subtle, minimalistic blend of house and techno, exactly the sort of tech-minded groovers that have appeared on Radio Slave's label in the past. "Jen High", for instance, takes a dusty being of drums and wraps them around delicate blends of chimes, whereas "When Round, They Go" heads deeper into space with the help of a sublimely cosmic swarm of sonics. The special piece comes from Terekke's remix of the latter, and the LIES man adds his signature touch to an already very deep house tune, making his version that one toke over the line!

Review: Gate is Nathan 'Bwana' Micay's third release on Will Saul's Aus, and sees the Canadian-in-Berlin drop more complex, futuristic house music. Opening track "Homeboy", with its granular percussion and one-note filtered stab, is redolent of big room minimal, while at the other end of the spectrum, there's "50% Maximum Power". Here, the beats are heavy, the claps crisp and the synths full of the bright-eyed optimism of early 90s techno-trance. Add in some well-placed screeches and the track has a real old school feeling. Finally, just to show that he is effortlessly chameleon-like when it comes to productions, Bwana drops the big diva wailing-house of "Muscle Powers Final Hour".

Review: More than any other UK techno producer, Luke Slater has remained at the cutting edge. This is partly due to his ability to make forward-thinking music, but as this new series demonstrates, he also possesses an uncanny knack for pairing off with other inspired artists. "Gated" is vintage PAS material from the 90s, its distorted rhythm lent a housey bias here thanks to Ben Sims' superb remix. It's hard to believe that "Dungeon", available here in its original format, dates back to 1997, as its bleepy, tunneling groove and its 'swarm of bee' hums make for exactly the kind of hypnotic sounds that many modern producers try - and fail - to emulate. Completing this excellent release is a dry, tribal version of "Dungeon" by O [Phase] from Token.

from $1.96
Review: Having boosted his credentials via a series of fine EPs for Jimmy Edgar's Ultramajic imprint, Andre "Chambray" Rost pitches up on Unknown To The Unknown. In keeping with the label's long-held retro-futurist ideology, both of Rost's original tracks take inspiration from the late '80s and early '90s. He begins with the bashed-out rave riffs, restless kick-drums, cut-up vocals and relentless drum machine handclaps of "Evenue", before fusing the sweaty jack of ghetto-house and the loved-up piano riffs of Italo-house on hands-in-the-air special "Makin' Me". AM Unit delivers a deliciously bouncy remix of the latter, emphasizing the track's saucer-eyed credentials while working the vocal sample hard.

Review: Moe 'Drumcell' Espinoz, the founder of Droid Behaviour, branches out with a release on Rodhad's label. First up is the chilling ambience of the Hypoxia remix of "Empathy Box", where spooky, chilling synths unfold over a malevolent bass. It's only a temporary divergence from Drumcell's sophisticated take on dark techno, and the razor sharp broken rhythms and searing bass of "Conflict Divide" hovers into view, propelled by an all-encompassing filter. Closing out the release is "Terminus Effect", where he combines the searing bass of "Empathy Box" with the eerie textures and rumbling broken beats of " Conflict Divide" to create a memorably moody techno track.

Review: Ibiza via Leeds imprint Gruuv is celebrating five years in explosive fashion and proceedings are not coming to a halt any time soon! David Mayer & Nght Drps get together for some peak time deep house that just reeks of summertime on the island. "Burn" is all about big time, main room groove and reliably so. "Helios" is the real highlight here; a druggy, proggy and atmospheric workout reminiscent of Stephan Bodzin. Finally, and in total curveball fashion, Spanish legend Eduardo de la Calle, he of Analog Solutions does what he does best in deconstructing and reconstructing the loops of both aforementioned tracks on "Burn Vs Helios" giving it his trademark tunnelling hypnotic techno treatment.

If you were one of the lucky few to grab his Bad News 12" with LIES don Ron Morelli then you'll be ready for the haywire nature of the Kino-i EP. Finding a perfect home on Minimal Wave offshoot Cititrax, the EP sees the Berlin based producer indulge his machine love on three variations of the same track that almost explode off the wax - must check for fans of Nation, LIES, Mathematics!

Review: It's been three long years since Benjamin Milz's last release, and that was as part of an all-start ensemble of Frankfurt talent on Chi-Wax. This, then, is his solo debut for Live At Robert Johnson, and it's really rather good. There's something thrillingly no-nonsense about the thumping kick drums, hissing cymbals, woozy melodies, restless cowbells and ragged acid lines of "Dc2", which feels like an all-out assault on the senses. He prioritizes mood and melody a little more elsewhere, playing around with attractive arpeggio lines on the tactile and picturesque "Obd", while fusing cloudy chords, glistening melodies and UK-garage influenced beats on the bold and beautiful "Basic Motion".

from $1.96
Review: The first seven installments of the Herdersmat series comprised a vinyl box set. Now this eighth series sees four upcoming techno producers feature on one 12 inch. Dimi Angelis puts a focus on angular Detroit techno with the jittery "Green Aviation". Sciahri from Italy goes harder and heavier with the tough kicks and resonating bass of "Perplexity" and Endlec, who has already released a number of EPs on the label, puts the focus back on abrasive, hard-hitting techno courtesy of "Neurofunk". Tripeo's "Yfur" inhabits a similar space to Dimi Aneglis - but as always, the sense of menace remains thanks to its meaning, eerie synths.

Review: Mord is one of techno's most important labels and this release from Progression shows exactly why the label is so revered. The work of a Dutch duo, it twists and teases it way through the typical peak time Mord sound with great skill. The title track sets the tone with its thumping drums, dark filters and wigged out subsonic bleeps. "Omicron" is similar, but on this occasion Progression put the focus on tight claps and a hypnotic, heavy pulse. "P&K" leads with screeching sirens and bass tones that drop to supernaturally low levels. "Diminished' sees the pair opt for a more stripped back, minimal sound, but it's only a temporary break and straight afterwards, they return with the visceral acid of "Surge".

Bonus Peach - (4:02) 127 BPM

Review: Arttu Snellman has enjoyed a long-standing relationship with Clone thanks to his releases on Royal Oak. However, that arrangement changes as the Berlin-based producer's latest venture for the Rotterdam operation sees him change over to the Jack for Daze outlet. Certainly, his approach is tougher than before; the title track is redolent of '90s techno, with metal-plated percussion providing the backing for insistent bleeps and rubbery sub-bass. On "WD40" and "Bonus Peach", eerie organ riffs prevail, underpinned by sturdy kicks and powerful bass, while on "Dust", Arttu reverts to a harder sound, as insistent stabs are married with an aggressive rhythm track and growling bass.

Review: Answer Code Request's "Calm Down" sees the German artist go back to doing what he does best; the beats are sparse and filed with short breaks, while the sonics circling above them exude that familiar sci-fi feel. "Dust 0.2" is more of a minimal techno piece - pads and effects still firmly in place - while "Modal" flickers its strain of distortion over lo-fi acid bleeps, and "Feel (Rework)" is all about the tune's cascading synths and slow-morphing low-ends. Quality gear, as expected.

Rrose - "Swallows" - (8:16) 150 BPM
from $1.96
Review: The latest single from Lucy's Stroboscopic Artefacts label pits two heavyweights of modern electronics against each other in Kangding Ray and Rrose. The pair may possess strong associations with Raster Noton and Sandwell District respectively, but they've become increasingly part of the Stroboscopic family in the past few years. Ray takes the lead with title track "Ardent" and it's a chance for him to engage in a style of epic techno away from the more conceptual bent of his output for Raster Noton. There's a sensation of magnitude to Rrose's "Swallows" that is apparent as soon as the music begins to swell upwards from the depths of the channels and unfurls into some eight minutes of waveforms that that multiply and disintegrate with a real elegance. Oh to hear this one on an appropriate soundsystem.

Review: Boris Bunnik is the techno producer with the seeming unending string of pseudonyms - the one constant in all of his work is his ability faithfully and effortlessly capture classic electronic tropes. Running Late is unusual in that it brings together a number of the styles he is inspired by. "Fake Profile" for example, is a glorious, widescreen affair, which wouldn't sound out of place on one of his Hexagon releases. "Induce" meanwhile is an acid-laden jacking groove that recalls earlier Conforce records. The highlight here is the title track, where this talented Dutch producer departs from the script to deliver a powerful, pulsing bass-techno track in the E-Dancer vein.

Next, The Element teams up label head honcho Alex Flitsch on the deep, tunnelling and atmospheric progressive house of "Puma" which really has the label's classic sound in mind. Finally the mighty trio Of Norway, Linnea Dale & Preben Olram serve up the blissful deep house cover of Pornos For Pyros hit from 1993 "Pets" and what a fantastic tribute it is!

Review: Ben Sims on D'julz' Bass Culture imprint? You better believe it! The Hardgroove head honcho and all round techno legend delivers three cuts of bangin' and dusty house that's full of attitude under his new Ron Bacardi alias. "Rock Your Body" features massive drums and a cavernous bassline this side of Shed or Special Request plus mysterious, crooning vocals; it's wicked! "First Effort" is jacking, funky and a downright loopy workout reminiscent of classic DJ Sneak. "The Money" is more like the Sims we know on this tough and tribal DJ tool that delivers all the funk and 'oomph!' so typical of his sound.

Review: Bristol's Billy Kenny is up on our charts this week with a mighty fine appearance indeed, and a rather special one, too. This is because the Bristol kingpin steps out of his own This Ain't Bristol label, and lands firmly on Food Music with something a little more house-oriented than what we're usually used to seeing from him. "Horn Thing", for instance, although drenched in a considerably UK sort of coating, is a hard-edged house tune for peak time spinning, and the same can be said about "It's Alive", another bleep-ridden UK house chugger that'll likely appeal to the bass heads, too. "I Luh U", instead, is a different kind of beast; the majority of the tune is taken over by more cinematic sonics before dropping to break-ridden, four-to-the-floor rhythm.

Review: After six years spent teasing and titillating with a steady stream of high value singles, David Kennedy is finally ready to release his debut full-length under the now familiar Pearson Sound alias. The first artist album to appear on the Hessle Audio imprint he co-founded with Pangaea and Ben UFO, Pearson Sound is a surprisingly sparse and otherworldly affair. Intriguingly, Kennedy's usual twisted, dubbed-out analogue rhythms largely take a back seat, with moments of tough dancefloor abandon (see "Rubber Tree" and the tipsy "Headless") playing second fiddle to stripped-back synth-scapes and otherworldly ambience. It's striking on first listen, and only gets more impressive with repeat listens

Review: Slap me sideways and call me Grandpa, it's a new instalment of Killekill's Megahits series, and that means a burst of noxious techno beats from all angles. As with previous editions, we have 6 sides of wax all filled with new killers from the label's best, including Eomac, who delivers the supremely messed-up "Angel In The Marble", Bintus' nasty-as-ever acid on "Re-Clocking Knob", a gorgeous collaborative efforts from Cassegrain and Tin Man dubbed "Ad Hoc", Alex Cortex's unsurprisingly curious and marvellous "Tensegrity", and a very special appearance from Detroit legend Blake Baxter with the banging "Acid Warp Time Travel". The rest if as good, if not better - pure gold from the likes of Dez Williams, Jerome Hill, Detroit Grand Pubahs etc.
