Review: Mainz Germany based tech house hero Eric Sneo returns to Christian Smiths esteemed Tronic imprint with "chord challenge" which does exactly what it says on the tin; with this soulful and emotive exercise in cruise control that's reminiscent of Aril Brikha's seminal classic "Groove la chord". Next track "resistance" Is the real winner on here: this is euphoric, factory floor stomper has hands in the air stabs and pounding rhythms which are exactly the kind of thing that Norman Norge or Mike Denhert Would smash out at Berghain.

Review: Following the release of "Transmit 01" earlier this year comes yet another deadly hat trick from German tech veteran Sneo. For this particular visitation he's hurtled us back to 2005 and the pinnacle track from his debut album. First up DJ Boris adds a raw swing and shuffle to the original's drum dynamics while Sneo himself twists the original's loopy, undiluted techno spirit. Both are textbook examples of how to update a classic. Finally we hit Sasha Carassi's deep and dark shake up of "Dance La Familia". A headnod to Eric's longstanding party TanzDer Familie, it bubbles with such serious sub-bass weight it should come with a health warning.
