Review: For the latest From Another Mind release, label owners SHDW & Obscure Shape have invited an impressive line-up of artists to interpret their work. Hadone's take on "Die Prophezeiung" is a high-octane affair, resounding to pounding kicks and featuring mesmerising synths and spiralling acid lines. The MRD version of "Der Weg Des Kriegers" dispenses with melodies and focuses instead on a raw, industrial rhythm, while Stigmata's remix of "Die Augen Des Teufels" inhabits roughly the same territory, but focuses instead on a dark, pulsating bass. Exium's remix of "Blick Des B?sen" isn't as extreme, but it sees the Spanish duo dropping a visceral bass and tribal drums, while H?ctor Oaks dons his DJKAOS11later ego for the ebm-themed "Kein Entkommen".

Review: 2020 was a particularly difficult year for electronic music, with clubs worldwide shuttered, but as the latest compilation from ARTS demonstrates, the techno community has no shortage of creative energy. This ingenuity and creativity is audible in all areas, with Rave Culture platforming new and established artists. MRD and Alfredo Mazzilli both deliver pulsating electronic bangers, while Raar's "Collider" is a moody break beat affair. At the other end of the spectrum, label owner Emmanuel's "Camouflage" is a rave-influenced peak-time roller and I Hate Models drops the stomping but atmospheric "Intergalactic Emotional Breakdown", while other established names, Benjamin Damage and ASC, deliver forceful, musical workouts.

Review: The second instalment in Bpitch Control's compilation series gets off to a rousing start, with Rebekah dropping a pounding, hardcore-influenced techno track, "Last Summer". The same intensity levels are audible on Inhalt Der Nacht's "In Lust Verirrt" and Tham's "The Third Kind" but deployed differently, with both acts using swirling acid lines and blustery filters to arrive at the same destination. While keeping the focus on the dance floor, ebm influences loom large on "Herzschlag Der Figur" from German trio Die Selektion. The compilation also embraces ghetto techno as Andrew Moore delivers the slamming "That Makes Me So Horny" and big-room 303 mayhem on Alien Rain's "Dream Interceptor".

Review: The organisers behind German party The Third Room have responded to the coronavirus by setting up a label and tapping artists who played for them for the material on this split release. The proceeds from the sale of this EP will go to people who bought tickets for one of Third Room's cancelled events - a kind gesture. It's no surprise that the tracks on the compilation are reflective of the party's sound: Dax J and Obscure Shape & SHDW's contribution focuses on hard, fast acid; Inhalt der Nacht & Echoes of October drop the pile-driving "Beutezug" and even Ellen Allien's track is coated in ravey menace. The one exception to this approach is Hector Oaks's droning "Do You See The Light?"

Review: Shdw and Obscure Shape run From Another Mind and this four-tracker shows why the label has become so well-regarded in hard techno circles. First up, the pair deliver the ebm-tinged title track, where a rough bass and pulsating acid build gradually to a heady climax. 'Bisswunden" is much heavier and faster, as the German pair drop visceral drums and furious percussion, while on "Blick Des Bosen", they drop a stab-heavy groove that drops and builds to the sound of a buzzing siren. "Kein Entkommen" is different again, with a moody bass providing the backdrop for rolling break beats.

Review: Tale of Us launch their Afterlife label in style with the Realm of Consciousness compilation. Bringing together some of the best-known names in contemporary techno as well as a group of newcomers, it moves effortlessly between esoteric moods. Tale of Us contribute the ambient intro, while Monoloc and Woo York are both in more mellow form than usual on the melodic "Phoenix" and "Poseidon" respectively. Meanwhile, Recondite contributes the sad melodies and throbbing bass of "Murphy's Law" and Locked Groove balances supernaturally beautiful hooks with powerful bass pulses on "Emeralds". Even more dance floor-focused tracks, like Obscure Shape & SHDW's "Die Wiederkehr", are filled with trancey melancholia.
