Review: It's to Submerge and UR's credit that they can still deliver music that is exciting and challenging. Leader begins with "EF's Back", a brilliantly moody slice of hip-hop noir, with nasal, blunted vocals set to chilling strings. By contrast, "Funny" is a high-speed jazzy techno track, the sensuous notes striving to keep up with the runaway tempo. But Submerge has remained true to its roots here, and Mr DE rolls out the wiry electro funk on "Technobob" and "Technobass", the latter bringing an air of mystique with it. He also delivers breathless deep techno on the dreamy, soulful vocal-led "All for Granted".

Review: The seventh release from Myles Serge's Re(form) imprint comes from Myk Derill, a German producer whose productions pack the same punch as Mike Dehnert. Delayed dub chords create a lucid groove in "Itvo" which gradually build in size to create a tunnelling club track, while distant voices in "Otherside" are held captive by a dark and brooding loop. Luiz Ruiz adds Jeff Mills arpeggios and rattling 909 snares to his remix, while Derill's "Drop Ceiling", with its rugged drum pattern and metallic stabs, is Fachwerk-style techno to the core.

Review: Most techno releases focus on a specific sound - by contrast, Unison manages to combine a range of styles. "Facial Features" is the dance floor slayer on the release, its hissing percussion and slamming beats combining with glacial chord progressions to create a peak-time affair with style and intelligence. By contrast, "Omage" is all about stripped backbeats and a slurred vocal in French that is reminiscent of the minimal house anthem, "Mumbling, Yeah". "See" is more up to date, with a stepping rhythm underpinning dramatic chords, while "Synda" sees Derill deploy a heavier, straighter rhythm, but one that is underpinned by dubby textures.

Review: Differing from his Flowers EP, Mystica Tribe chooses beats and bass over texture and melody for his Stars Are Mine EP. The title track uses long reverb from short bursts of keys as its main melody, as busy beats similar to the drums of Stroboscopic Artefacts producer Xhin create a syncopated groove. Sounds in "His Temple" have that raw street edge heard of early dubstep releases, which then leads into "Prayer", similar to the sombre moments of Scuba's Triangulation LP. The minimal gem that is "Zen Stone", although rough in design, flows smoothly as swung drums are caressed by breathy synths.
