Review: Tom Dicicco has already built a quietly impressive discography - think releases on Off Minor, The Corner and his own Run Out Run - so it's little surprise to see him appearing on Delsin. The Shadows & Tears EP is typical of his textured, spacey, evocative techno sound, and contains a quartet of impressive outings. The British producer kicks things off with "Extracting The Error", a beautifully melancholic slab of tactile techno. "Morph Cycle" is a darker and more percussively intense affair, a stylistic trait continued on the warped electronics, hissing cymbals and distorted analogue drums of "A Prayer For Jupiter". Finally, he combines abstract electronics, fuzzy textures and rolling, intergalactic melodies on the impressive "Fallen Spaces".

Bell Rock Outpost (Seahawks remix) - (5:35) 96 BPM
from $2.18
Review: Four years after its original release, tracks from Land of Light's eponymous album get a new set of remixes. Fans of Lovefingers' ESP Institute label may recall the orginal remixes, released back in 2012, and this new set are just as essential. Kuniyuki Takahashi's take on the title track sets the tone, with sensuous ambient textures and gently warbling guitars creating an atmospheric mood. Tambien's version is just as esoteric, but slightly more understated, while Seahawks rounds off this latest remix package with his take on "Bell Rock Outpost". Juddery, slow-paced drums and warm, jazzy piano lines create another beautiful piece of music - tailor-made for those sunset moments.

Grottaferrata - (9:49) 94 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
from $2.18
Review: A year on from the woozy, experimental oddness of their simply titled debut EP I, Guido Zen and Joel Martin re-ignite their Vactrol Park production partnership. II sees them exploring similar sonic pastures, offering up moody, atmospheric, analogue-heavy workouts that join the dots between krautrock, drone, ambient, leftfield techno and curiously distorted, dubbed-out experimentation. The hypnotic, slowly unfurling opener "Tired & Feathered" is probably our pick of the bunch, though similarly epic, slo-mo closer "Grottaferato" - a creepy exercise in sparse, dubby electronics and Ket-addled rhythms - is not far behind. "Hump", a trip into the furthest realms of the duo's collective subconscious, is also strangely fulfilling.

Exsurgence (Percussive mix) - (5:33) 127 BPM
from $2.18
Review: This is French duo DJ Deep and Poncet's third release on Tresor this year, and sees the pair focus on the same kind of driving, relentless techno. In its original format, "Exsurgence" is a tough, big room affair, led by surging chord builds, choppy filters and bleak, tonal bleeps. Unsurprisingly, the 'Reduced Mix' puts a focus on the original track's dark bass pulses and adds in some firing percussion. Similarly, the 'Percussive Mix'' sees the pair concentrate on dubbed out drums and twitchy hi hats. There are no real surprises here, but "Exsurgence", like the other Deep/Poncet releases on Tresor, are functional techno at is best.

from $2.18
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: Having disowned his drum and bass and disco re-edit roots, Stu Robinson has enjoyed a career revival following the adoption of the ASOK moniker in 2012. This upturn in fortunes is no freak occurrence, though; Robinson's productions during the period, which make great use of vintage analogue gear, are better than ever. That much is clear from A Mind Forever Voyaging, his debut album on Creme Organization. Rooted in early '90s techno - both American and European - the set blends distorted drum machine rhythms and intergalactic synthesizer motifs with booming basslines and spooky, outer-space textures. There are, naturally, a few ambient excursions dotted throughout, as well as an impeccable trip into the lesser-explored world of tech-jazz ("Journey Through Fractal Mountain").

from $2.18
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: 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: It's a case of the old and the new getting together and getting down for the latest instalment on Bek Audio. Fitzpatrick is a Chicago veteran, who put out his hard, analogue techno for labels like Relief back in the day (this writer's personal favourite is Tone Control). Beck on the other hand, represents the new wave of modern, big room techno. "BS" came out last year and on this version, Beck provides two mighty reshapes. The first take is a tunnelling, rolling groove, powered by murderous kicks and featuring a wailing diva telling the listener 'you're alright'. Beck's 'Apparatus' version meanwhile, is more contemporary-sounding; the drums roll incessantly and provide a basis for the Scottish producer to layer waves of pile-driving percussion over them.

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: The Ear to Ground regular goes back to the early 90s for his latest release. "Utopia" sounds like what would happen if Dave Clarke's Red series was stuck on repeat in the club scenes from the orginal Blade movie. Tough kicks and insistent break beats undersore dark chord stabs that swoop in with more menace than Wesley Snipes, but the hip-hop cut-ups and scratches suggest Dax isn't being entirely serious. "Babylon" also harks back to the early 90s, but on this occasion, it sounds like he is channelling the hardcore techno shrieks of Set up System's "Fairy Dust", over steely kicks. The more functional "Kill False Prophets" and "Temples of Mesiah" will appeal to those who prefer their peak time techno straighter.

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: Given that the 'phonautograph' referenced in the title is apparently the oldest sound recording device, it is no surprise that Kevin McHugh's debut album as L4-4A takes a lot of its influences from older times. That's not meant as a negative, and the opening tracks, "Frequenzvariabler" and "Transmitter" are eerie, ambient soundscapes. McHugh keeps the focus on classic-sounding electronic music with the acid-fuelled, bass-heavy electro of "Dialup" and "Semantron" and the deep Detroit tones meets quirky rhythms of 90s UK techno on "Blitzlicht". McHugh also delves into the world of acid with the sharp drums, gurgling 303s and MCing on "Resistor". L4-4A's debut album is a long way from McHugh's previous incarnation, Ambivalent.

Review: London based imprint Weekend Circuit is back with a ferocious back to back effort by Ukrainian techno hero Stanislav Tolkachev and a mysterious newcomer. "Creeping Determinism" is a moment of Tolkachev at his particular finest: a pounding and broken peak time groove featuring all his trademark dystopian aesthetic and best of all, it's actually mixable. Likewise "Cognitive Bias" is surefire dancefloor artillery with its 4/4 onslaught powered by expertly executed series of chimes and bleeps, hypnotising you into submission. On the flip we've got "Khaliat" by the mysterious YYYY: a menacing, Berghain ready, peak time destroyer in the vein of Developer or anything on his famed Modularz imprint. His second offering "Hath" is equally suited to a heaving main room: a tough, surefire cyclical techno cut in the vein of Robert Hood, Phase or Rodhad with hypnotic beats and the mandatory claps on the kick, wicked!

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: The Contort Yourself tradition of electronics pioneers, modern masters and new names continues into CY003. Enrique comes under that latter banner. The Hot Releases alumnus introduces the EP with the piston pounded belligerence of Dissociate. L.I.E.S. and Nation veteran Beau Wanzer continues this stroll into aggression. Weasels is an upturned work of techno. Nuts, bolts and the grisly inner workings are on show for this fast paced floor mangler. Spain's industrial stalwarts Esplendor Geometrico open the flip. From 1988 the grit of the factory floor is carried into Rotor. A touch of the mystical is injected, chants looped through the hypnotic rhythms in this simmering classic. Broken English Club is on hand to rework Rotor into a guttering piece of Electro tainted machine music. If you're hoping for some respite, think again. Prostitutes (Diagonal) closes with the cruel pummelling percussion of Cuyahoga Frankenstein. A brutal, beefy and brilliant 12.

Review: Steve Murphy is no newcomer to Lobster Theremin, having previously released a number of bombastic house and techno cuts on the imprint over the last couple of years. The Night Flyer is his newest alias, and was apparently created to allow him to make more industrial, EBM and acid-tinged techno. This eponymously titled first outing begins with "All Wrong", a nagging and mind-altering combination of psychedelic acid lines, looped vocal samples and thumping percussion. "The Girls Shoot To Kill" is an altogether bouncier affair, built around rubbery synthesizer arpeggios and clattering EBM percussion hits, while "The Night Flyer" fuses early '90s bleep melodies and LFO style chords with metronomic drums.

Review: After a string of high-profile releases for Richie Hawtin's Minus, Gavin Lynch aka Matador delivers a new album for Ruckus. It sounds like the Irish producer has matured as a producer. At times, Ructions seethes with an understated menace. This is evident on "Drifting", a drawn out groove with menacing bass pulsing underneath. "Back 2 Bass" follows a similar trajectory, augmented by a repetitive vocal sample and sirens firing off into the ether. There is still a lot of big-room style tracks - just check the ominous "Inceptions" and the heads-down pulses "Klout & Bones" - but this album works best when Lynch explores unexpected directions, like the subtle, sub-aquatic house of "Harcourt Street".

Raddhad - "Oblivion" - (7:53) 130 BPM
from $2.18
Review: The penultimate 50 Weapons release pays tribute to the music of its home town, Berlin. Oddly enough, it plays host to the first release on the label by Rodhad. The Dystopian boss delivers "Oblivion", a raw and noisy analogue workout that calls to mind the sonic extremities of Landstrumm and Vogel, realised against a stepping rhythm. However, the real highlight comes from Fjaak. This Berlin trio, who received their break thanks to releases on 50 Weapons, drop "Super Smash". The track's wailing, diva vocal, techy chords and flowing groove may not be the most innovative, but it'll go a long way to ensuring that the future of Berlin techno is safe in Fjaak's hands.

Visions - (5:38) 125 BPM
from $2.18
Review: Increasingly sparring in the studio and on the decks, Bristol bods Hodge and Facta consummate their partnership with this release for Rinse that highlights two very different but equally essential cuts. "Spheres Of Costa Rica" riffs on a distant and enchanting hook of traditional vocal and places it in the midst of a spooky house framework rich with melodic percussive hits and plenty of low-end heft. "Visions" meanwhile takes a more moody route into oppressive industrial scrapes and dubby treatments to make a thoroughly contemporary hybrid belter that holds back as much as it releases. It's an assured release that plays on the strengths of both producers and points the way for more cool and deadly dance killers to come.

Knee On Belly - (6:05) 122 BPM
from $2.18
Review: Ah, it's finally the summer and where would we be without a DJ Koze record to accompany those long, open-air parties? The title track is a lush, string-filled affair that chugs along slowly. It's made all the more trippy by a female vocal whose narrative begins with the claim that 'everyone is experimenting with ecstasy' and who goes on to talk about lies and meditation. If that sounds too cosmic for you, then we recommend that you check out "Knee on Belly". It could be the German artist's version of '90s disco house, but realized against a gentle minimal house backdrop.

Hiraeth - (6:35) 130 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
from $2.18
Review: French producer Jeanson Antonin aka Antigone represents the new wave of techno artists, and he has made his mark on labels like Token and Demented. Saudade is his follow up to his 2015 debut on Kr!z imprint and it showcases why he is held in high regard. "Night Adrift" is a tense, tough roller, its metallic drums precisely crafted. On the flip, he delivers "Hiraeth"; there, the rhythm is intricate yet also dense and robust, with a tonal bleep fading in and out of the arrangement and the listener captivated by the few elements that Antonin has seamlessly brought together to have such an impact.
