Circuit VI - (6:15) 128 BPM
Review: Reeko faces down techno duo Exium for a no-nonsense release on the pair's Nheoma label. Circuits is an inspired meeting of minds and features Spain's leading proponents of harder-edged techno (with the possible exception of Oscar Mulero). It's no surprise then that "Circuit IV" is all noisy metallic riffs, dense loops and gives off the kind of eerie, spaced out feeling one normally associates with all-night techno parties. "Circuit V" is just as intense and sees the trio drop a dense, noisy loop over a rolling, linear bass. Rounding off the release is "Circuit VI", which focuses on a slightly deeper sound, thanks to its eerie synths, but the same relentless, pumping groove is audible in the background.

Reeko - "Lynx" - (5:25) 129 BPM
Review: Spanish techno power clique Oscar Mulero, Reeko, Exium and Christian Wunsch load and fire part six of their Seleccion Natural series out of Mulero's Polegroup canon. The previous five blasts came from Reeko's Mental Disorder, Christian Wunsch's Tsunami Records and Mulero's native Warm Up Recordings. Reeko's "Lynx" is a hi-octane power-trip of scratchy industrialism and gunshot snares jacked with a ferocious pace, as is Mulero's "Reverberation" only to a more bleepy and streamlined effect, with obvious fidelity toward Surgeon, Regis and Jeff Mills. Had Wunsch's booming "Sleep Cell" not been released here, it could easily hold its own among the factory-made releases of Perc Trax. Exium proceed with break-beat drums in "No Sign Of Weakness" which aggressively lends itself to a trove of over-driven bass squelches, piston pushing white noise and a tribal ramshackle of percussion - cabalistic techno at it's most dangerous.

Hearbeat Error - (5:47) 128 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
Review: Slam has been running Soma for almost a quarter century, but as Barcelona 3am demonstrates, they haven't lost their A&R skills. The latest signing to the label, Spanish producer Reeko, captures the prevailing dark mood in techno. The title track starts with deep, dubby beats before he introduces some ghoulishly eerie riffs and speaker threatening subsonic bleeps. "Flaming" is in a similar mould, with Reeko adding some churning filters to the mix, but without losing the underlying, ominous mood. However, he lets loose on closing track "Heartbeat Error", where the combination of rolling rhythm and heavy kicks underscores a series of ringing alarm bell effects.

Sunday Night - (6:18) 124 BPM
Review: Spain's Reeko returns to the dance floor for his latest excursion on Oscar Mulero's label. Tough, tribal beats, rolling grooves and insistent rhythms are on offer across these four tracks. However, to describe Reeko's music in such simplistic terms is to do it a disservice. Each track on this release has an extra layer, an added dimension that makes it stand out from the increasingly crowded tough techno scene. On "Empty Streets", this manifests itself in the form of niggling percussion, the title track is characterised by its tough tribal beats and best of all, "Dishonest Thoughts" resonates to gut-wrenching sub-bass.

Indonesian's Dream - (5:21) 133 BPM
Review: Reeko's reputation as a hard techno producer takes something of a battering - in the best possible way - on Momentum. The title track starts with ticking percussion and a squelchy, cavernous rhythm, but rather than intensify, it leads into a mellow, filtered denouement ending in textured ambience. "Miracle" maintains and builds on this approach, its beats softer and its chord sequence sounding like it would be more at home on a deep house release. Reeko reverts to type on "Indonesian's Dream". There, tight rhythms play out over dense, dubby beats, but the inclusion of dreamy, Detroit-style pads shows that for this release at least, Reeko is leaving his banging sensibilities at the studio door.

Empirical Science - (5:50) 130 BPM
Review: Spanish producer Reeko impresses with a killer three-tracker for Oscar Mulero's label. "Cyberpunk" starts off with a high-paced, pulsing electronic rhythm featuring snappy percussion, which midway through veers towards jarring, industrial riff-led intensity. The end product sounds like the soundtrack to a chase scene in a sci-fi movie. Despite its title, "Dystopic Futures" is less frenetic but still sees Reeko test the limits of techno acceptability with repetitive metallic jabs. Finally, the title track features the bassy menace of Orphx, but is combined with an evil filter that could only be the work of this maverick talent.

Review: It was only a matter of time before Reeko released on Avian. The Spanish producer has long been a master of dark, industrial techno, and now he brings that sound to Shifted's label. However, La Mala Educacion marks a change in direction for the Spanish producer; for the first half of the EP, his sledge hammer drums are absent. It means that "Engendrado" unfolds to the sound of menacing bass tones, while on "Carne y Demonio", he delivers a raw, frazzled sound scape. By the time he reaches "Las Virgenes Tambien Juegan Con Cuchillos", the more familiar sound of dense, looped techno is audible, while on "Habitacion 877", Reeko drops one of his trademark rough steppers.

Review: Having debuted on Avian in 2017, techno producer Reeko makes a glorious return with Fat Punko. The release opens with "Punish or Be Damned", where a disturbing vocal sample unfolds over eerie sound scapes, before Reeko pivots towards the dance floor with the discordant, building minimalism of "Massive Garage Meetings". "Screem'N'Cry" is more abrasive, with pummelling broken beats and pile-driving percussion overlapping, while "Nervous Idiots in the Bar" moves back towards the abstract, albeit with a darker focus thanks to its synapse-splitting tones and industrial kicks. Rounding off this gloriously moody Ep is the menacing wall of sound that is "Dirty Feeling".

Review: To celebrate the tenth anniversary of the release of Gravedigger, Reeko aka Juan Rico has decided to resurrect - no pun intended - this hard techno classic. As part of the re-release, there's a new 2019 version, with the abrasive original given a more rolling groove and powerful building filters. Reeko has also wisely included the original in all its glory albeit with the benefit of remastering: visceral, punchy drums, rough percussion and that central howling riff serve as a reminder as to why this 90s New York techno-influenced Spanish-produced hard club track continues to excite and inspire - ten years after its original release.

Christian Wunsch - "Alpha Particle" - (6:01) 126 BPM
Review: The only question that arises from this collaborative release is: why did it take so long? As this split release shows, Perc's label and Oscar Mulero's Pole Group share a lot of common ground, but the key difference is that the UK operation has an underlying grittiness. This is evident on the sweeping chords and grinding rhythms of Sawf's "Trivoli" and Perc's "405", the latter a stomping, slamming affair led by distorted kicks and a ferocious, militaristic rhythm. By contrast, the Pole Group material is more considered. Reeko's "Recharger" is a drummy affair led by a tapestry of hissing percussion, while Christian Wunsch's "Alpha Particle" is a deep space serving of alien, acid-led techno.

Review: Oscar Mulero's Polegroup label closes the year with a mammoth compilation that defines the current state of the techno nation. As Unknown Landscapes shows, it is a diverse place. There's droning ambience from Daphne RXX, while Reeko, Reggy Van Oers and Mike Parker deliver bleep-heavy, hypnotic groove that draw on the influence of F.U.S.E and Sandwell District. Heads-down loopy fare is also catered for - with the spiky percussion and bleak filters of Jonas Koop's "Fu Factor" standing out - and the form also revisits the rough, analogue sound of the 90s thanks to Karl Bult and American scene veteran DJ Hyperactive's contributions.

Blueshift - (6:00) 128 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
Review: There's plenty of interest on this three track Charged Particles EP from the Tsunami Records label. Firstly it brandishes yet more highly charged output from the Spherical Coordinates project of label boss Christian Wunsch and Spanish techno icon Oscar Mulero, a collaboration that debuted in auspicious circumstances with a recent EP on Polegroup. Much like that four tracker, "SCXFG 21" sees the pair lock into a deep, throbbing techno groove that perfectly encapsulates their stated intention to create music "heavily inspired by space and futurism, focusing on liquid textures, harmonic sequences and classic drum machine sounds, yet preserving the danceable feeling." In addition, Geophone and Prologue artist Mike Parker ensures the deepness remains with the shuddering textural journey below that is "Currents" whilst Reeko opts for a groaning industrial approach on the excellent "Blueshift".

Review: Oscar Mulero's label consistently puts out forward thinking techno - and this compilation is no exception. It may start with a surprise for some fans of the Spanish producer's broken beat sounds, with Reeko's "Miracle" delivering ghostly synths over a snaking bass line and Exium's "Mantra" featuring the kind of warbling trance melodies that one would associate with deep Detroit techno. Mulero's own "Tidal Acceleration" heralds a shift back towards more typical sounds as distorted, mangled drums support cold bleeps and a stepping rhythm, while Rolando drops a firing, percussive take on Exium's "Complex". Still, there is enough room for diversity as the skewed metallic rhythms and broken beats of Christian Wunsch's "Complete Surrender" demonstrate.
