Review: Fresh off introducing the Bulb project from William Burnett and Crimes Of The Future bosses Tim Fairplay and Scott Fraser, the label adds to its growing roster of artists with the introduction of Tapan. Steeped in Belgrade's club scene as residents at Disco Not Disco, Tapan are evidently well equipped to the Crimes cause on the basis of the two productions presented here; both "Volumes" and "Who's There?" are creeping, slow techno numbers rich with psychedelic qualities with the latter featuring some fine guitar work from Vladimir Djordjevic. Willie Burns and Drvg Cvltvre have been collared to remix the title track and both opt to up the tempo whilst taking "Volumes" in distinctly different directions. The former reimagines the track as heavily processed shoegaze techno that could feasibly have surfaced during the Hacienda's pomp, whilst the latter mutates "Volumes" into an exercise in dank acid.

Review: From the sound of this quietly impressive debut 12", Belgrade's Tapan see city life as one long, paranoid shuffle through streets riddled with potential hazards. There's a definite creepiness and breathless feel to the title track's slo-mo industrial chug, winding saxophone lines and ambient house style samples. This strangely exotic, psychedelic feel is continued on the Middle Eastern hue of "KMD", while "The Party's Over" melds dub techno, dark ambient and post-punk influences on an impeccably clandestine workout. Finally, the paranoia and dub techno influences are ratcheted up a few more notches on closing track "Sta Ti To Radis", which comes on like the imaginary soundtrack to a journey few will ever make.

Review: Following two fine teaser singles on Malka Tuti, Tapan (AKA Belgrade-based producers Nebosja Bogdanovic and Goran Simonosk) are finally ready to unleash their debut album, Europa. A genuinely unique proposition, the set sees them flit between mind-altering Middle Eastern dub-jazz (the trippy title track), delay-laden late night soundscapes (the brilliant "In My Heart"), woozy post-punk dystopia ("Bogovi"), percussion-rich, horn-heavy weirdness ("Trouble") and the kind of dubwise, other-worldly fare that we'd once have expected to hear from early '80s Bristolian bands such as Maximum Joy. It's naturally hugely atmospheric, but more impressive than that is the duo's imaginative approach. While the influences are easy to spot, describing the results is pleasingly tricky.
