Played by: Brumaag
Review: Launched back in 2011, Mote Evolver's Parallel Series has been home to familiar names, including Luke Slater - under his LB Dub Corp guise - ASC and Shifted as well as newer talent like Bas Mooy and Chris Finke. For this fifth instalment, the label has decided to focus on emerging artists. Sev Dah's "Svarog" is a rave-influenced, peak time affair led by firing percussion and insistent bleeps, while on "Morana", the beats are dustier and the rhythm looser and more free-flowing. On the flip, Dutch producer Jeff Rushin opts for a tough approach; "Solex" centres on hard kicks and a distorted, grinding rhythm, while "Obsolete" closes out the release with a droning riff and heads-down drum patterns.

Review: Colin McBean is back everyone, look out! It's the same quality you expect from the techno don, as he brings the funk, rawness and unadulterated groove on the Infrastructure EP. First up is "Guiness Punch (Xtra Ray Dub), a stripped and atmospheric joint with sweet female vox and a mesmerising keys melody plus bumpy bassline. But wait until those Mr. G trademark open hi hats and cracking claps come in. Next the acidic "Give Thanx!" ups the ante with its ultra sick bassline and hypnotic chime melody which will easily crossover into other techno sub genres impressively. Finally "Invert?" explores sonar techno aesthetics accompanied by sampled diva vocals on this truly sick pre peak time slow burner. Tip!

from $1.83
Review: Last spotted cooking up science under his birth name Elliot Thomas, Etbonz gets his chunk on with a hurricane tapestry of cosmicity. Thumping with a loose but focused tech punch, the space between the layers of pads, synths, guitars and soaring FX allow you to weave, bob and lose all sense of time. Remix-wise Prins Thomas lowers the tempo and heightens the dubby aspects of the track with some really neat, intricate rolls on the percussion. Welcome to the future.

Review: It's been two years since Shifted last released material and over the coming months he is putting out his third album. Before that happens, there's this EP on his own label. "Anti" is an immersive wall of humming static and frazzled white noise, while "In Equal Measure" is an off beat affair as the UK producer layers atmospheric textures over a lithe, stepping rhythm. However, Shifted hasn't left behind the sound that he became known for; on "Persistence of Vision", he takes the pulsing, cavernous techno sound to its logical conclusion and makes the listener feel like they are being sucked backwards through a wind tunnel, the bass booming forcefully all the way.

Review: This LP and 10" package marks Stephan Olbricht's return to Lobster Theremin, a label he last graced back in 2014. While much of the imprint's recent output has echoed the distorted, industrial-tinged dirtiness explored by L.I.E.S, For Perfect Beings is a quietly melodious and hypnotic affair, albeit with occasional forays into more clandestine territory (see the muffled creepiness of "Blambestrid", and the otherworldly ambience of "Gesnaria"). For the most part, the Romanian's dancefloor instincts appear to have been subdued in favour of more atmospheric and thoughtful fare, though "Ovacrwded (Fast)" - housed on the accompanying 10" - does a good job combining elements of deep techno, dub techno, and crusty, distortion-heavy experimentalism.

Review: Detroit legends Octave One return with a new full length LP, following up last year's brilliant Burn It Down on their esteemed 430 West imprint. Lenny and Lawrence Burden are on point as usual with their soulful/emotive futurist vibes ensuring surefire dancefloor bombs. With such anthems in the making like the energetic tech-funk of "Locator" or the gritty Motor City Soul of "Just Don't Speak" (Midnight Sun ReDub) that features all the hallmarks of the Burden brothers sound: funky basslines, uplifting strings, diva vocals and hands in the air piano rolls!

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: 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: French producer Timid Boy has appeared previously on Gruuv, Viva and SCI + TEC but now he throws down for indie label Set About with "This Is Hardgroove" where he throws down some rolling and pounding tech house in the vein of Kody & Leftwing or Julian Juweil. He then teams up with Aleksandar Ivkov on "Future" and if you ask us: this stellar track is the future of tech house.

Review: The third release on London label Them comes from a local lad, Ansome aka Kieran Whitefield. Despite its somewhat morbid title and artwork, this release centres on raw energy. "Coffin Dodge Rodge" sets the pace with its lunging bass, high-tempo rhythm and roller coaster succession of builds and drops. There's a brief interlude for the nail-scraping noise of "Dragon's Dynamite", but Whitefield excels at making granite-heavy but smartly executed peak time techno. On "Bearded Lady", this finds shape in the form of splintered beats and a rolling, noisy rhythm, while "Fisherman's Fist" allows some light to shine through thanks to its chopped up vocal samples.

Review: When Austin Cesear and Public Information combine, the results are never less than special; back in 2012, it was the London-based label which first served notice of the San Francisco-based artist's talent for bleak yet beautiful sonics with the excellent debut LP Cruise Forever. Since then Cesear has brought his sepia-toned brand of house and ambient music to Anthony Naples' Proibito label, and collaborated on a cassette release with Stefan Jos for Opal Tapes earlier this year. The sight of a new Cesear release on Public Information is most welcome then, with West Side apparently inspired by the artist's time spent amidst the industrial machinery and wildlife of Oakland, California. Spread across six tracks, the results veer through mood and tone, yet feel like one cohesive whole thanks to Cesear's ever refined touch.

He has chosen Van Bonn to issue his album Control on, whose title suggests that he wants to do it his own way.Unsurprisingly, the music also has a free-spirited, unpredictable approach. "Into" is a deep, dubby groove, while straight afterwards the German producer channels the sound of early Perlon and even Thomas Brinkmann for the vocal snippet heavy, reduced minimal house of "Papillon". "Undertow" sees Van Bonn pushing towards peak time, as it features a surging, overwhelming bass, while the title track also keeps the audience guessing with its hypnotic, mesmerising dubby chords.

Review: Here's a welcome return from one of the 90s long-lost techno acts. Edge of Motion are Gert-Jan Schonewille and Dylan '2000 & One' Hermelijn, who graced labels like Djax and 100% Pure back in the day. The duo has decided to revive the project and have even set up a label of the same name as a platform to release material on. If you're a fan of frazzled, raw techno, then this release is for you; acid gurgles its way over pile-driving kicks and zinging percussion on "Motion Denied"; "Bar 233" is a master-class in panning, bass-heavy force and "Point Taken" is a militaristic slab of head rush kicks and 303 madness.

Review: There's an uncanny, yet distorted resemblance to Kassem Mosse's "578" in Redshape's raving "Tel Aviv", the first cut from a series of EPs the German plans to release to mark a decade of live performance. To be released across a range of labels, Gerd Janson's Running Back is first up to honour the masked producer with his personal celebration of music. "Rome" on the otherhand swerves any real melody, instead focusing its attentions of snarling white noise, in your face bass and a cut up vocals to make you dance!

Review: Chris Spero and Alex Jones really found their sound a few years ago when teaming up as Dense & Pika. Those first couple of releases on their eponymous imprint are the stuff of legend now, not to mention the ones that followed up on Scuba's esteemed Hotflush imprint. For the Calf EP, it's served up courtesy of Adam Beyer's Drumcode, a fitting home for their tough and functional techno tools. Wasting no time messing around with the peak time destroyer 'Edging Forward" which chugs through the audio spectrum like a steamtrain, there's more adrenalin to be found on the dusty and stripped industrialism of "Drag 'N Drop" which is reminiscent of the Klockworks or the Fachwerk sound. We also enjoyed the Chicago hard house sounding title track, which gives an obvious nod to Windy City legends like Relief Records or Kne' Deep.

Review: John Malkovich and Daniel Day-Lewis have garnered the reputation of being actor's actors. Ashley Burchett aka Phase is proving to be a producer's producer, certified by commissioned mixes from the likes of Robert Hood, Dave Clarke and Ben Sims, as well spots in Resident Advisor podcasts by Surgeon and Carl Craig. Since 2007 Phase has been channelling his burrowed beats and jarring analogue riffs through Belgian and techno genuine imprint Token. A mastering engineer by trade, Burchett achieves perfect equilibrium in his mix downs where no sound or artefact dominates the other. Shifting crackles and resonating textures cosy up to looped rhythms of "Binary Opposition (Process 1)" which Phase substitutes for more melodic yet insidious soundscapes in "Binary Opposition (Process 2)" - handing the likes of Dettmann and Nodge some early afternoon Berghain fodder with two tracks harbouring the longevity needed to fuel their legendary Sunday sessions.

Plan A - (7:18) 126 BPM

Review: Whilst the most recent Modeselektion compilation saw Berlin pair Modeselektor pick from a largely established (if very varied) pool of artists, the latest release on their 50 Weapons labels shows Gernot Bronsert and Sebastian Szary have not lost any of their canny A&R skills for uncovering new talent. The uniquely named Fjaak are a Berlin trio with "futuristic minds but already nostalgic feelings" and as far as we can tell this two tracker is their debut release. Familiarise yourself with both cuts and you'll understand why Bronsert and Szary scooped Fjaak up, with a their rave ready productions executed on a mixture of hardware and software the sort of club focused music 50 Weapons has made it's name on. As immediate as the title track is, our pick is the tougher techno fix of "Plan A".

Review: Woof! If you are looking for a massive slab of techno, you won't find anything as hefty as Aphelion. A package of tracks from Belgian label Token, Aphelion is essentially a primer for the best in contemporary techno, featuring contributions from Surgeon, Rodhad, James Ruskin, Karenn and Planetary Assault System alongside some label regulars. You will have probably already heard "Fixed Action Pattern" from Surgeon - it's possibly one of this year's finest techno tracks - but it's got some stiff competition here with Ruskin in particularly funked up form on "No Trace". Aphelion is a real statement and proof of Token's current rank as a European techno powerhouse alongside the likes of Delsin and Ostgut Ton.

Review: On the evidence of his latest releases, it feels like Robert Hood is going through a reinvention process. The recent Floorplan gave vent to his gospel influences and now "The Greatest Dancer", under his own name provides an insight into Hood's love of disco. There's not much to the title track, yet this simplicity and clarity of sound is the same aesthetic that drove the original productions that it is indebted to. Over a rolling, housey groove, Hood adds in some sexy funk guitar, sprinkles it with sensuous strings and puts all of the ingredients into a filtered blender. On "Dancer", the approach is even more minimal and straightforward as a walking funk bass guitar is married to a series of claps. This combination runs the risk of sounding like a DFA release, but Hood isn't finished. He adds sassy brass samples and a sexy female vocal, resulting in an arrangement that offers all of the sensuality of disco and the unflinching precision of his minimal techno productions. Call it a reinvention, but it also offers the best of both worlds.

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".
