Review: Sometimes a straightforward approach is the best and the Kamikaze Space Programme version of "Ray's House" shows that this is true. Based around a jacking rhythm and a repetitive vocal sample, these two elements are more effective than a truck full of 'advanced sound design' techno. The Unbalance version is also straightforward; opting for a stepping rhythm, its shaking percussion and reflective vocal samples make for an accomplished deeper take. At the other end of the spectrum is Mattias Fridell's version of "Section Zero". Remaining true to his production form, he unleashes a thumping, rolling groove littered with spaced out chords. Finally, the Ness take on "Vaporized" uses chiming bells and a pulsing bass to create a Sandwell-esque experience.

Review: Feral offers club techno with real depth and texture. The Joel Alter version of "There You Go" features storming beats and insistent vocal snatches, but it also evolves to include a sensuous chord progression and an infectious vocal sample. Alland Byallo's take on "Rolling Energy" also has reflective qualities thanks to its sensuous chords, but the heavy bass and rolling groove prime it for the floor. Markus Suckut's take on "There You Go" meanwhile is stripped back and stepping, its heavy bass and hissing percussion the focus of all the action. But depth is never far away on this release and John Osborn's remix of "Rolling Energy" is a droning, multi-layered affair.

Review: Hard techno's Germanic beginnings may have given the genre it's unforgivingly industrial edge, but it soon spread across the globe faster than a HAARP electrical storm. Stepping up to the mantle with the likes of Presk and Blawan, Abstract Division have built a monolithic slab of near-impenetrable beats from their home in the Netherlands. It's as challenging as it is beguiling; the minimal sounds of "Collision" break through the colossal build and washed-out claps of "Comprehend", pulsing like the techno nights worth remembering. When the house revival begins to crumble, you know where we'll be.
