Tony Silver - "DLL" - (5:43) 129 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
   
Joton - "Green Mind" - (4:32) 135 BPM
Review: In the headlong rush to appropriate 90s techno narratives, the legacy of the broken beat sound has been largely forgotten. While Sahko and Tresor are considered fair game, it seems that Downwards and Oscar Mulero appear to be off limits. Slowly however, the situation is changing, as Perc's releases and now this split EP demonstrate. Tony Silver's "DL" delivers everything that this sound should -pummelling drums, jarring riffs and the kind bowel-quaking broken beats that would wake demons. Joton's "Green Mind" is of a similar persuasion, based on merciless drums and beats, but the end result is less claustrophobic and not as dense - like Regis but without the paranoia.

Tony Silver - "Anery" - (7:00) 129 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
   
Joton - "Twelve" - (4:56) 137 BPM
Review: It's a tale of two sounds on this latest joint venture between Silver and Joton. Anery sees Silver do an impressive interpretation of late 90s Downwards/Blueprint techno; the insistent steely rhythms are pumping but contain an assured swagger and the searing industrial riffs are sure to tip it into the section of a DJ's box marked 'killer peak time techno'. By contrast, Joton's "Twelve" favours a more subtle approach. That's not to suggest that it's subdued, and the stripped back rhythm, robust bass and ice cool chords are reminiscent of London tech-house pioneer Gideon at his most understated and effective.

Review: It's time to lock up your daughters as Fetish drops a collection of harder-edged techno. AG-KW drops the industrial stomp of "Phasen" and Brad Lee's "Visions In Shadow" sounds like mid-90s Lost/Cosmic broken beat tribalism jacked up on angel dust. That's not to suggest that "Our Fetish" is a senselessly banging compilation. Indeed, many of the tracks are much weightier and more intense than much faster tracks and veteran producer Kai Randy Michel's mixture of bleak minimalism and searing acid on "Labyrinth" is a case in point. However, if you are seeking something less abrasive, then "Fetish" also delivers, with Mattias Fridell dropping the hypnotic metallic groove of "Permanent Disorder".
