Review: This seminal Berlin label was around long before the German city became the capital for techno, and thanks to the remixes of old tracks, Re:Sender Volume 1 shows that it will outlive the hype. Kotelett & Zadak face a tough task, namely reworking Minimal Man's "Plastic Smile", but they do so with ease, combining hiccupping rhythms with airy strings, tripped out vocals and gently building chords. Ada's take on Metope's "Second Skin" is more reflective, with the undisputed queen of melodic German techno fusing a deep synth line with a resonating bass rumble. The Someone Else version of Misc delves deeper into clicky house sounds, while John Spring's take on Sluts 'n' Strings & 909s "Summerbreeze" is a heavy, rolling groove infused with repetitive vocal samples and infectious filters.

Review: Sender Records are veritable veterans of the house and techno game, having slipped out their first releases way back in 1999. Here, label boss Benno Blome indulges in a bit of nostalgia, picking out some of his label highlights of old. Much of the material comes from the early 2000s, at a time where deep house, techno and minimalism were still a growing force in electronic music. Highlights come thick and fast, from the swinging, tech-tinged groovery of Baby Ford's "Messenger" (as remixed by Matt Star) and the bubbling tech-house oddness of Andre Crom's "Reiner Wahnsinn", to the mutant deep house electrofunk of Frank Martiniq's "Side Blow".
