Review: This mysterious group have caused a stir thanks to their ability of mixing vocals with throbbing acid tracks. In particular, "Paris Dub", which features Paris Brightledge on vocals, has seen them break through to dance music's mainstream. That track features twice here - the steely drums of the lat-est edit are worth checking - but what's most interesting are the other tracks. "Light Tunnel", with Mutado Pintado on vocals, is a sleazy workout all about wearing black; "Headtrack" shows that Paranoid London are capable of other sounds and is a tough ghetto workout, while "Lovin U", fea-turing DJ Genesis, sees them apply a frazzled bass to new wave vocals. Paranoid London proves that they excel at knocking out 303-heavy club tracks, but it also suggests that this mystery act is capable of making other, less obvious sounds.

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!

The Hope - (6:03) 132 BPM

Review: Push is Hessler's second release for the IMF label. In many ways, it encapsulates the owner on Marcel Fengler's propensity for diverse but always driving sets on the main floor in Berghain. The title track is the embodiment of peak time; hints of Chicago jack run through the linear rhythm, but it's that pounding, all-powerful kick that has the greatest impact. "The Hope" sees the east German producer slow down the pace without sacrificing his power thanks to a moody, system-levelling bass. While there are traces of Chicago and Detroit on these tracks, Hessler then turns his attention to a particularly Germanic strain of techno on "Rise" and "Reflections"; there, eerie riffs are fused with tough rhythms and insistent filters for a thrilling combination.

Review: To celebrate ten years since the release of their classic album, Booka Shade announce Movements 10. The German duo comprised of Walter Merziger and Arno Kammermeier are known for the seminal minimal and electro-house cuts over the mid to late noughties that defined a sub-genre, alongside their Get Physical alumni M.A.N.D.Y. and DJ T. Timeless classics they're responsible for, such as "Body Language", In White Rooms" and "Mandarine Girl" are all here and remastered for your listening pleasure. Not to mention a collection of fine remixes by a who's who in the current tech house climate. Our favourites weren't limited to: "Lost High" remixed by NYC legend Dennis Ferrer, Swiss hi-tech soul merchant Deetron delivering an absolutely infectious rendition of the aforementioned "Mandarine Girl" and Geordie producer Patrick Topping delivering a very 2016 style makeover of "Night Falls"

Review: The Ecstatic label run by Walls pair Sam Willis and Ale Natalizia has really stepped it up this year in terms of scope and intrigue. Both the Daphne Oram reworks and the long form sonic decay from The Field producer Axel Wilner as HANDS suggests a label is happy to remain driven by the esoteric interests of its founders. This latest release is another conceptual curveball which finds Natalizia teaming up with Pye Corner Audio for Intercepts, a split album themed around notions of espionage. Regardless of how much you invest in the conceptual motivations of both artists, fans of Pye Corner Audio and Not Waving are spoilt musically with the latter's side proving particularly dreamlike and intoxicating - "Protect The Revolution" is a notable highlight.

Review: Most box-set releases tend to focus on reissues and re-releases, but on Brainbox De:tuned opts for a different approach. The compilation features artists who defined European techno and electronica's golden age during the 90s, but the Belgian label has commissioned new or unreleased material from these acts. Fans of that era will be thrilled by B12's moody electro, the raw, analogue warmth of John Beltran's "Nineteen Eighty Nine" and the resonating bass-y techno of In:Sync's "Crack in the World". While not every track impresses - Move D's contribution sounds tepid - there are enough jaw-dropping piece of music on this compilation, witness the autumnal majesty of as One's "Where Did He Go & Why" to make Brainbox an essential release.

Review: Turns is the second album from Sam Barker and Berghain resident Andy 'Nd' Baumecker and shows that the pair have evolved and matured. "Encipher & Decipher" is rooted on the dance floor, but flows to the sound of ghostly synths and spellbinding bleeps. The pair also deploy this musical approach in slower settings audible on the reflective opener "Senden", while "Nocturnal" is an uptempo but chord-heavy groover similar to Aril Brikha. Some references to an electronic, experimental sound linger though; this is audible on the glitchy beats of "Club Entropicana" and the bass-heavy "Turnhalle", but overall, Turns is a musical, melodic affair.

Stellar Acid (Francois X remix) - (6:44) 86 BPM
from $1.87
Played by: Resident Advisor
Review: Fenckler burst onto the scene two years ago following a random encounter with Soma's owners on Soundcloud. However, as this single from his debut album proves, the initial hype was not a one-off. "Stellar Acid" has all the lost-it qualities of the peak-time acid of Luke Slater's X-tront series, but Fenckler has tempered the madness somewhat by using some breathy, atmospheric synths. The label has also chosen its remixer wisely and has drafted in Francois X. Slowing down his fellow Frenchman's original groove, the Deeply Rooted House producer drops dense break beats and turns the 303s into a noisy sequence that oozes grittiness.

Eccentricity - (5:09) 127 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
from $1.87
Review: It would be fair to say that Oscar Mulero is a techno purist. Over the last 16 years, he's built a solid reputation via singles and albums that rarely stray from techno's hypnotic, heavyweight roots. Hyperbolic Paths, his first single for Token since 2008, continues on this path. Its' four cuts are built around bombastic, full-throttle rhythm tracks, unsettling chords and undeniably trippy, looped melody lines. The standout track is arguably "Suborbital Trajecteries", which combines spacey, rising and falling synthesizer motifs with beefed-up, tropical-influenced techno drums and sweaty, constantly building percussion fills. The deeper and dub influenced closing track, "Eccentricity", is also quietly impressive.

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: Since making his debut a decade ago, Belgian-in-Berlin Peter Van Hoesen has earned a reputation as one of techno's most reliable producers. Perhaps it was that reliability that persuaded Dekmantel to sign him up as the debutant of their new UFO vinyl-only series. There's naturally plenty to get excited about on Quadra, with each of the four tracks hitting the spot. "Cartesian Taiko" sounds like Derrick May reworking Vangelis' Blade Runner soundtrack after a few love pills, while "Duet Dub" is a crustier, more urgent affair, full of pinging electronics and post-industrial sleaze. "P2ME" laces oddball electronic bleeps and stabs over a relentless techno groove, before he breaks up the beats on the trippy-but-dense electro shuffle of "Quadra.

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.

Review: It's been a few years since Christian Wunsch last released on Polegroup, but Mutation shows that he has lost none of his potency. "Organic Molecules" is a dense, drum-heavy workout with little else than clicking, steely percussion joining the monstrous kicks. "Cosmic Radiation" is equally dense, with rickety slivers of percussion bouncing off a central bass and drum combination of concrete weight. By contrast, "Chemical Reactions" has a loose, almost organic rhythm, like the straightest, most clubby iteration of Cosmic / Lost Recordings. Finally, "Microorganisms" sounds like Wunsch has been listening to a lot of Mike Parker, with pneumatic bass and dark bleeps prevailing.

Review: Spanish techno veteran Oscar Mulero goes deeper than usual on Second Skin. The title track is underpinned by a typical Mulero stepping rhythm, but has he added feature of chords flowing and churning overhead. In a similar vein is "Rotar". Based on a straighter arrangement, firing percussion and a rumbling groove underpin synths that soar and swoop like autumn leaves in the wind. The mood changes for the darker with the remixes. Architectural's two versions of the title track are characterised by jagged percussion and intense acid burns, while Tensal's takes on "Rotar" are spring-loaded with churning filters and tough kicks.

Review: According to JD Twitch's sales notes, Luke Solomon and former Greenskeepers man Nick Maurer decided to join forces as Powerdance in reaction to "the bland, soulless dance music that's infiltrating clubs the world over". Certainly, there's little bland or soulless about opener "Mysterious Space Plane", which not only jacks harder than Ron Hardy after a face full of amphetamines, but also boasts a typically eccentric vocal from Maurer (this, incidentally, is given additional prominence on the accompanying, beat-less Reprise version). Elsewhere, "More Fire" takes TB-303-driven acid house into deep space, while "Fire Beat" offers a stripped-back, percussion heavy take on the same cut.

Review: We always thought of Unknown To The Unknown as a multi-faceted and exploratory label when it came to sussing out new talent, but we didn't see this one coming. Mak & Pasteman, recently of Lobster Boy, are a duo who are more often than not categorised under the dreaded 'bass' banner, but what they have here are actually a couple of stone-cold house cuts with a Dance Mania kinda flavour. "Percwerc" is a gritty, jittery 4/4 bomb with vintage drop that'll have your jaw wrapped around your head in no time, while "T2000" is just as raw and filthy except that the mood is funkier, deeper and little more musical. Both heavy, both recommended.

Review: To commence their 20th birthday celebrations, British techno imprint Blueprint has naturally turned to some of their pals for fresh material. Thus, we get Search Deep Inside Yourself, Surgeon's first appearance on James Ruskin's imprint for 19 years. The Birmingham producer naturally rises to the occasion, surging between metallic loop-jams ("Inside"), bleep-heavy broken techno brilliance ("Deep"), and surprisingly warm, tribal-enthused techno anthems ("Search"). Arguably best of all, though, is closer "Yourself", which sounds like Jaydee's "Plastic Dreams" after 20 years on crack, several spells in jail, and a brutal gang beating. Sure, there are few surprises, but when does Surgeon ever disappoint? You know the drill.

Review: Bas Mooy's label drops its most adventurous release yet. Paul Birken has been operating at the fringes of techno for years and puts out the kind of rough analogue music that would make the industrial art school boys shiver with fear. Distorted drums, intense and in your face volleys of percussion set the scene on this three-tracker. "Big Rig Barnacle" displays some musical leanings via its woozy chords and "Funnel Fiends" goes the opposite way thanks to its acid emissions. But the best thing about Birken is his sheer unpredictability and "Repeat Offender" sounds like a hard techno arrangement pulled apart, distorted to the max and then randomly reassembled.

Review: With Tensal debuting over at Oscar Mulero's Pole it seems the Spanish techno legend has used this as an opportunity to send his music elsewhere too. Take a look at the list of artists that have contributed nihilistic abrasion to Bas Mooy's label and Mulero is a glaring omission. Mooy and Mulero (surely a collaboration to come) make up for this by agreeing to bear five Mulero productions under the MORD banner, kicked off by the big room acid of "Sensory Deprivation". "Misophonia" slams down hard like a Mulero production should with bleeps, distorted tones adding some gritty funk to a game Mike Dehnert thought he'd monopolised. Deepest section of the EP is "Spatial Sequenced Synthesia" and staying down low is the sub-aqueous strafing of "Common Frequencies". Mulero's formula is unbeatable right now, and for something a little stripped back with less reverb check "Number Form".

Review: Gerd dons his Literon guise for some hard-hitting, no-nonsense techno. As anyone who is familiar with the insane Machines release on Fortek is aware, the Dutch producer is just as adept at creating tough rhythm tracks as he is at making sensuous deep house. On the title track, he delivers a hammering, relentless groove, the dense drums and driving arrangement opening up to reveal an insistent, looped vocal snatch. "Freak Function" is redolent of late '90s techno, its tribal, steely drums riding an incessant filter. But while Exploitation sees Gerd pursue a tougher approach than usual, he can't escape his house background and "Function" also contains a breathy vocal sample.
