Six O Six - (6:06) 126 BPM

Review: Originally from South Korea but moving to London at the age of 14 where she spent her formative years, Peggy Gou has since moved to Berlin (of course!) where she's since made her break releasing two EPs in less than a year on Matt Edwards esteemed Rekids imprint. Her new one on Phonica white sees her explore classic deep house aesthetics convincingly such as on the dusty MPC bashing Moodymann style deepness of "Day Without Yesterday" with its deep funk bass, emotive strings and woozy sample all working in perfect harmony. But "Six O Six" gets a craving for the acid life with some gnarly 303 lines going head to head with hands in the air vocals and rusty drum machine grooves.

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: Mosca's Not So Much has seen the producer's style progress gloriously over the last couple of years from his UK bass beginnings to some of the freshest explorations in house and techno. On Cedar Wood State (Vector mix)" he throws down the kind of trippy and cyclical machine techno that you'd usually attribute to the likes of Mike Parker or Abdulla Rashim; this one is absolutely mental! On the flip Cedar Wood State (Volt mix)" is a bass heavy electro jam that works that beat repeat to monstrous effect. The kind of track you'd hear at a serious Detroit electro party like No Way Back. Tip!

Review: While albums have never been the focus of most techno producers' careers, it's still surprising to find that Satellite is Sam Paganini's first full length. Given that veteran Italian producer released his first 12" back in 1994, it's been a long time coming. Happily, Paganini has decided to stick to what he does best, filling Satellite with the kind of throbbing, floor-friendly tackle with which he's becoming accustomed. Of course, there's plenty of variety within that, from the rave-inclined pump of the Dubfire-ish "Down" and smooth, deep house-influenced sweetness of "Silver Panorama", to the cacophonous jazz fills and thunderouds bottom end of "Lotus" and deliciously melodious "Sunflower".

Review: While the Arches has sadly closed, that other great Glasgow institution, Soma, keeps on putting out great music. The label's latest project is Transmissions Glasgow, a compilation of 15 tracks from the city's producers. It is executed in much the same way as one of Slam's flawless DJ sets; beginning with the serene ambience of Edit Select's "iN1" and the fractured, slow-motion beats of Puddledub's "Circling", it moves into the deep, trance house of Dextrous "Station to Station". It wouldn't be a Soma compilation without some techno and this is provided by artists like Deepbass and the brilliantly named Complex Emotional Response, but as always, Slam's take on the form is deeply soulful and emotive, demonstrated here most impressively by Edit Select's percussive but mournful synth-led "Resurface".

from $1.96
Review: BNJMN's take on techno has never been fixed, though in recent times he's happily been focused on the more robust, forthright end of the style. Droid neatly fits into this category, with the track sitting somewhere between the dust-encrusted, distorted sound favoured by the likes of L.I.E.S and Lobster Theremin, the end-of-days intensity of Berceuse Heroique's output, and good old-fashioned techno funk. It fizzes, clanks and throbs in all the right places, with just the right amount of metallic pressure and mind-bending electronic chicanery. The accompanying remixes are strong, too. There's a bouncy, surging interpretation from Inland that should please all those who like 'no nonsense' techno, and a pulsating, EBM-influenced interpretation from Cassegrain.

Review: It's not that long since Boris Bunnik dropped his most recent Conforce full-length, but already the man of many pseudonyms is donning the alias again. Predictably, North To South Part 1 is full of the kind of shimmering, melodious, futurist treats that sit somewhere between classic Detroit techno and mid '90s British intelligent techno. All four tracks are superb, making picking highlights somewhat tricky. Today, we're particularly enjoying the icy pulse of the B12-ish "Syncronized" and the classic Transmat flex of "Eclipse", but tomorrow that could change. Opener "Dark Days" - all rich, intergalactic chords, snappy snares and stargazing intent - is arguably the best of the lot.

Review: The ever so slightly smutty disco that Swiss pair Alex Gloor and Sasha Crnobrnja make as In Flagranti has long been a staple in the DJ sets of Erol Alkan - you probably danced to his Disco 3000 edit of "Brash & Vulgar" at some point too. It makes for little surprise then to see the pair surface as the latest artists on Alkan's Phantasy Sound label with the four track Headrush EP. From the opening title track, this is vintage In Flagranti with intricate drum edits, off kilter electronic hooks, vaguely sexual vocal utterances and slick recycled bass lines. The scattergun final track "Dope As Shit" is a particular highlight, careening in a carefree fashion through the sort of proto jack that Ron Hardy used to lap up at the Music Box. The pilfered visual themes of In Flagranti's Codek releases are replicated too in amusing fashion on the cover art.

Review: Although Appleblim has been missing from the scene and out of action relative to the golden years of dubstep, he's still very much a legend in our books, and every time some new material from the man pops up we just can't help ourselves from being excited. The bass legend is back on the foundational Tempa label, home to so many stunning releases by himself and other luminaries such as Benga and Skream, and "Minus Degree" sees the producer take a conservative shift toward the surreal and the experimental, hardly using any beats of low end at all to get his point across. "Move Them", however, takes a dance shape and ends up sounding like a distorted, off-kilter dub techno joint of the highest order, whereas "Twist It Down" powers down the engines to deliver a deep, chimerical sort of dub house that simply must be played out on a big, nasty soundsystem.

DRGN2 - (7:10) 126 BPM
from $1.96
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.

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: Well, you can always trust Radio Slave's Rekids to provide the goods, and they've done it again with this remix EP of Nina Kraviz's now much sought-after "Ghetto Kraviz" banger from 2011, originally out on the same Rekids with huge success. It's the relatively unknown Garbiel Cassina aka Regal who turns in the two versions, a producer who has been steadily making a name for himself via Involve Records. The first "303 Remix" chops the vocals of the original and stutters them over heavy kicks, subtle swirls of acid and a rattling percussion, while the "Dub Remix" chucks in a fine layer of Basic Channel chords and a whole load of subbass. Painfully effective.

Review: Released last year on Wink's own label, "Denial" now gets two reshapes from Luke Slater. The UK techno veteran's first version is as Planetary Assault Systems and sees him push Wink's tweaked acid down a cavernous tunneling groove, accompanied by waves of whooshing filters and spiky, percussive bursts. However, it's Slater's lesser-known alias, LB Dub Corporation, that provides the best interpretation. On this occasion, the beats are rough and less streamlined, the percussion rickety and skeletal and the pulsing bass underpins a vocal that urges the listener to 'live in the future'. Both Wink and Slater may be approaching middle age, but they have more energy than producers half their age.

Review: Josh Wink's institution is back and giving us a massive forecast for the musical climate on The White Isle this summer and it looks like it's gonna be pretty hot! Sure enough most of this heat is coming from Ovum's current label roster and it's all good on Ovum Over Ibiza 2016. We're pretty sure that New Yorker by way of Los Angeles' MANIK's "Recourse" will be remembered beyond this year due to its slinky deepness, as will Nottingham's Dudley Strangeways with his tunnelling piece"'Keep It Clean". Delft boss Ambivalent also appears with the epic and melodic journey track "Phase Doubt" as does New York City legend Harry Romero, surprisingly, with the peak time techno monster "What What" which really packs a punch!

Review: The legendary Mote Evolver is back with another ferocious slab of UK techno. Label favourite Psyk gives us a blow to the head as soon as the needle touches down on title track, "Distane". Repetitive keys swing back and forth with mighty force; followed by "Isolate", another triumphant techno bomb filled with muffled static and a feverishly hissed percussion. For the (digital) B Side, Psyk takes us further down the bouncing rabbit hole on "Rdmn", and completes his rave injection with "Main", an almighty, stripped number worthy only of a gigantic dark room filled with bass bins.

Review: The spin-off Optimo Trax is in danger of overshadowing its mothership if its run of form continues. First up on this split release is Beta's "Endless Plains", where rolling breaks and dubbed out drums prevail. Then comes the brilliantly named Love's Flaccid Disco Muscle's - a pseudonym for L/F/D/M - "3am At The Aqua Disco". Unlike some of the producer's industrial-leaning music, this is a trippy, jazz-house groove. Alex Burkat steers the release back towards disco territories with the sassy sounds of "Culture Full Circle", but Modini demonstrates that diversity is the name of the game, and "Ghost Seducer" is a cold, bleep techno affair.

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: If you've been keeping abreast of all things Minimal Wave this year, you'll probably have picked up on Veronica Vasicka hinting at a forthcoming split release from Silent Servant and Broken English Club, the new project from UK techno man Oliver Ho. We've certainly been eagerly awaiting it her at Juno HQ and it's great to see Violence And Divinity live up to and surpass these expectations! Silent Servant mans the A Side with two tracks that will be familiar to anyone that's been lucky enough to catch his live sets of late, indeed it's almost too easy to visualise the flashing strobes as the pummelling EBM lines of "Cut Unconscious" unravel and beat you down. The two accompanying productions from Ho's Broken English Club dovetail nicely, but veer off into more wave orientated territory, with "Divinity" sounding quite like some of the earlier material put out by In Aeternam Vale. In a word, superb.

Review: One of the more driving cuts from Robert Hood's epic Motor: Nighttime World 3 from last year, "Drive (The Age Of Automation)" finds itself getting a welcome single release. The original is about as Detroit as you can get, where a moody motorik bassline gives way to suitably sci-fi synths, combining a musical take on Detroit's automotive history with a Blade Runner aesthetic. Token artist Phase obviously revels in the opportunity to provide two brilliant reworks of the track; the "Nocturnal Mix", which isolates the original's bass stabs and incorporates them into a rolling juggernaut rhythm tailor made for the warehouse, while the "C-Box Mix" opts to keep the melodic elements but pare them back with the producer's trademark sharpness.

Review: Kanzleramt boss Heiko Laux has been releasing underground techno for over 20 years, during which time he has undoubtedly influenced DJs like Ben Klock. This debut on Klockworks is tacit recognition of Laux's influence, and it's also a reminder that he is a master in his field. "Savannah" is a deep, throbbing groove, with layered synths unfolding over a warm bass, while "Dry Me" sees Laux combine tranced out synths with a surging, big-room groove. The highlight though is "Dry Me (Acid Mix)", where the veteran artist combines heavy kicks and thunder claps with the kind of searing acid line that would make Woody McBride blush.

Review: Jordan hails from Belfast, but listening to the title track of this release on Tiga's sub-label, it sounds like he came from Germany via Miami. There's a bubbly electro synths of the sunshine state's capital merged with a metallic rhythm that's so precise and steely it would make Pershing look inaccurate. "Pleasure Centre" is another unusual amalgamation; this time it sees Jordan fuse the glitchy experimentation of IDM with filtered, tracky tech-house. There's one final surprise on this release; Leeds producer Sia is tasked with remixing "Coup De Grace" and turns into a granite-heavy tough techno workout, with the warm synths still appearing at intervals.
