Review: Techno duo Cassegrain launched their Arcing Seas label - it's an anagram of their own artist name - back in 2016 but is only now making their ownership of it public. The pair's approach to music-making is similarly mysterious and enchanting and this three-tracker fuses detailed sound design with an understanding of dance floor requirements. On "Shahmaran" this takes shape through electronic pulses underpinning tranced out, hypnotic chords. "Caracal" is harder and more pared back and sees the pair drop grainy kicks and a coruscating rhythm, but the sense of mystery that pervades the label and their productions soon returns. "Vulpine" resounds to lithe, clicking percussion, a dense rolling groove and the occasional blast of white noise.

Review: The Greek-Lebanese power duo of hypnotic techno return for the third installment for their new Arcing Seas series and doing what they do best. However they've drafted some killer crew to remix tracks from their first release. First up Marc Trauner aka The Mover should need no introduction: his remix of "The Trappist" is a depth-charged/darkwave-electro nightmare if we've ever heard: it'd make The Hacker or The Horrorist up their game. The inimitable Peder Mannerfelt steps up to the challenge and delivers the goods as always on his pummelling modern industrial music workout on "Skullgun", while Avian head honcho Shifted does tunnelling minimalist techno aimed squarely at Berghain on "Vultures".

Review: Alex Tsiridis and Huseyin Evirgren are Cassegrain, and the duo's third missive comes through Max_M's M_Rec LTD, with their Painter-Palette EP. "Painter Of Modern Life" promotes a lightly trickled bassline, sparking industrial statics, juggled around Sandwell District styled blips. Ed Davenport steps up for what could be his finest work to date, dubbing down Cassegrain's original to deeper cut of underground techno - Davenport's trademark bottom end ensuring maximum club efficiency. On the (digital) flip Cassegrain present their most peak-time production yet with "Palette" - a devilish track, harbouring the muscle to satisfy DJ sets from Len Faki and Chris Liebing.

Review: Having previously showcased their off-kilter brand of dancefloor techno on a wide variety of imprints - M_Rec LTD, Prologue and Infrastructure New York included - Cassegrain recently decided to take hold of their destiny. This is their second single on the Arcing Seas label they founded earlier this year, and contains three full-body workouts in their usual style. "Stax Scarlett" sets the tone, peppering a thumping broken techno groove with dystopian guitar lines and creepy chords. "Vultures" sees them add rolling, dub techno style riffs to a shaker-driven peak-time groove, while "Local God" is pleasingly metallic in its ethos and construction.

Review: Greek-Anglo-Turk hypnotic techno kings Cassegrain inaugurate their new imprint Arcing Seas; an anagram of their name: get it? It's business as usual from Alex Tsiridis and Huseyin Evirgren and the inauguration of the label follows several acclaimed releases on the likes of Prologue and Infrastructure NYC. The title track powers away with relentless low-tom drums giving it most of the groove beneath a ringing melody. "Skull Gun" is stripped but effective DJ tool with its loopy repetition just begging to blended with another trance inducing track while "Trappist" is the peak time weapon on offer; with its tape delayed melody spitting about the place in hysterical fashion.

Review: The Killekill label rounds out a fine 2013 with another release from the deadly combination of Cassegrain and Tin Man. The trio first collaborated on the Berlin label with last year's Carnal EP which played out pretty much like you'd expect a record from Cassegrain and Tin Man to sound. The High & Low EP demonstrates the threesome remain on a production wavelength, with three tracks where Tin Man's mastery of acid lines align perfectly with the modern techno sound design of Cassegrain. The title track holds it down first, using the full ten minute duration to unfurl into a slowly swelling minimalistic acid epic, whilst "Sex Kit" demonstrates they can take it to the dancefloor, albeit a dancefloor well versed in acid tracks with slightly unnerving undercurrents, Final track "Sand Maze" floats through a soundscape of subtle, minimalist acid ambience with only the slightest hint of a kick.

Review: With recent releases on Prologue and Soul Aid to his name, Berlin-based techno producer Cassegrain turns up on Killekill, this time with the equally mysterious Tin Man in tow. There are echoes of his dub techno explorations in all four tracks here, but the dominant sound is acid tweakery. It's put to particularly good effect on the droning "Visitor" - a stoned dub techno/acid house fusion - and lead track "Carnal", which bumps to a club techno beats and jacks to the bubbling sound of 303 abuse. "Sear" simply clatters along on a wave of analogue percussion, while "Rest" goes decidedly deeper and dubbier.

Review: It seems Function is a fan of Cassegrain & Tin man material as he's just signed them up for his next release on Infrastructure New York. For this second Berghain 07 sampler, Function's appetite for boomy, acid techno is whetted by the collaboration's "Oxide". Meanwhile, former flatmate Ed Davenport, aka Inland, delivers "Sca Fell", a subaqueous workout that would get the Mike Parker seal of approval. DVS1 throws down some trademark warehouse beats with some caustic stabs to boot, while Steve Bicknell delves even deeper into the abyss than he did on the first sampler, with a track that's as menacing and frenetic as what Drexciya can be.
