Review: Connaisseur is celebrating a decade in the business and certainly doing it with style. This time around there's some great collaborations; check these out. Melodic, soulful and absolutely emotive vibes courtesy of Swedish legend Aril Brikha teaming up with Ireland's Chymera on "Nihari". Next, The Element teams up label head honcho Alex Flitsch on the deep, tunnelling and atmospheric progressive house of "Puma" which really has the label's classic sound in mind. Finally the mighty trio Of Norway, Linnea Dale & Preben Olram serve up the blissful deep house cover of Pornos For Pyros hit from 1993 "Pets" and what a fantastic tribute it is!

Review: Patrick Chardronnet returns to Connoisseur with some more deep tech house grooves guaranteed to light up any dancefloor. "All I Got" kicks off with a menacing vocal sample of a preacher, whose vocals are soon consumed by a nagging synth melody and weighty rhythms; "Aura Dub" is much fuller in sound, swathing its steamroller-like mechanics in curtains of reverb. "Random Beauty" finishes things off on a gentler tip, with light beats and airy chords a far cry from the darker moods of the other tracks.

Review: The king of sultry afterhours tech grooves, Patrick Chardronnet is starting to age like a fine wine (see what we did there?). Here his "All I Got" tune becomes a mulled brew with added ingredients from some key remixers. Audiofly is up first with his deep, abstract-jack "Hook mix", Musumeci delivers a trippy Miami Vice style digital synther and Schlepp Geist goes all dark electro-house. There?s even a haunted minimal mix of Random Beauty by Anthony Middleton & Dance Spirit Gravity thrown in too!

from $1.49
Played by: Estroe
Review: This German label may have made its name with melodic trance house releases, but BT5 shows that the mood has darkened somewhat in the interim. Schlepp Geist's "Tura" sets the scene for the release, as a lone vocal, dissected and alienated, floats over a pulsing, throbbing bass. There's a similar feeling on Ataxia's "Visa V", where dramatic woodwind sweeps in over rickety percussion and a malevolent backing track. This menacing approach reaches its zenith on Jon Charnis & Hands Free's "Leviathan", a bass-heavy, sleek and menacing affair with the technical precision and power of a high-end Porsche. The only concession to Connaisseur's more carefree sound is the mellow, tranced out breaks of Moosefly's "The Space Between".

Review: Irish producer Bren Gregoriy aka Chymera has released a series of melodic techno records, but his latest album sees him enter a new realm. "The Drop", with its rich strings and sensuous woodwind, explores beatless ambient, while "Who Bends First" is like a halfway house between Ian O'Brien and alt rock, with live drums crashing and flailing to the backdrop of warm Rhodes keys. "Strange Things Are Afoot" makes reference to Chymera's deep techno sound, but the greatest achievement of Misadventure is that it gives vent to Gregoriy's pop leanings. It is audible on the dreamy, vocal-led "Drowning", but is expressed most articulately on "The Chase", where dead paced beats and playful, infectious vocals make for a real FM pop tune.

Threads - (5:45) 118 BPM
from $1.49
Review: Brendan Gregoriy has an intuitive knack for melodies, and on "Threads" he brings this skill to the fore. Over brittle percussion and a techy, somewhat metallic rhythm, he unleashes a glorious, full-blooded melodic flourish, all minor keys and no bombast. It's testament to Gregoriy's abilities that he has managed to attract two highly-respected producers to remix his work. Philly veteran King Britt turns "Trapped in Amber" into a dubby groove, its booming bass underpinning an angelic vocal covered in swathes of acid textures. Meanwhile, Steve Moore drops a version of "Swim Away", which focuses on a spacey, spaced out synth line and a lumbering bass.

An Island In Space (Orlando Voorn remix) - (9:12) 126 BPM
from $1.49
Review: This second raft of remixes that interpret Brendan Gregoriy's original material as Chymera prove to be just as inventive as the first. Connaisseur have commissioned Jacob Korn and Orlando Voorn to remake "An Island In Space" and deliver equally idiosyncratic takes. Korn's version is based on a surging, rippling bass and a snaking groove. When the track breaks down into a spacey, Moog solo, it seems almost at odds with the prevailing mood, but Korn is a master arranger and it all makes sense. The second version from Orlando Voorn is longer and more epic; over a rolling rhythm the juxtaposition of summery keys and booming bassline sounds strangely compatible.

Review: Davis and Zopelar are the two figureheads of Sao Paulo's vital electronic music scene. Heading up the In Their Feelings label, as well as being residents of the ODD collective: a very popular off-location event series. It's perfect timing then, to drop their debut EP on Offenbach's Connaisseur and we are certain that this release will cause some major waves. Three tunes for three different occasions. Starting off with the ethereal and evocative "Limba" with its breathtaking chord progressions that are sure to create a headrush or two. There's also "Kapur": a slow burning acid odyssey reminiscent of Richie Hawtin's Plastikman days, way back. Finally "Metallum" bridges the gap between the two aforementioned tracks and goes out all guns blazing, with its rapid fire rhythms and soaring arpeggio madness taking it all the way home.

Review: Distortion aka James Myatt comes from Chicago, but on Head, it sounds like he feels more attached to the legacy of European techno. "Throwback" provides the most obvious reference to continental influences, with its gentle melodies, chiming bells and vocal refrain of "to the sound of the underground" coming across like a mixture between Efdemin's intricacy and Superpitcher's breathy seduction. "Ocean Floor" opts for a subtle approach as well, but its pulsing bass and reverberating claps mean that it doesn't shy from the dancefloor either. Myatt changes tact on the title track and finally pays tribute to his home town's heroes: its niggling bass and fragile synths are lifted straight from the Larry Heard textbook, while its acid vapour trail is inspired by Armando.

Review: Lithuania isn't the first place you would associate with deep house, but it's where Few Nolder comes from and it's true that the Vilnius-based producer makes a compelling take on this established form. Like his other releases, the tracks on Moli have a fragility to them, like they are about to fall apart at every bar. Thankfully none of them do, and the listener is able to enjoy the slurred vocals and nagging percussion on "Twin" and the warm melodies of "Sonar". Few Nolder leaves the best to last though, and the title track's epic synth crescendos and played on the fly groove make for the perfect soundtrack to a midsummer's Baltic party.

Review: Next up on Offenbach institution Connaisseur is Perugia, Italy's Francesco Chiocci with "Black Sunrise" which gets a stellar bunch of remixes this time around. Olderic's remix really nails the label's sound perfectly on this deep and slinky progressive house rendition. Next up is Venice's Lehar whose makeover retains the wonderful vocals from the original and crafts this into one of those epic dark journey tracks that are all the rage at the moment. Musumeci also appears here; his version also walks the darker, left hand path but has more adrenalin and bounce to it; but just wait for that Life & Death style melody to come rushing in. Finally Cologne's Peter Pardeike provides the most uplifting version here with his slinky tech-infused groove creating something that you can really drift too.

Review: Celebrating a decade in business this year, German label Connaisseur provides the listener with a reminder of why the imprint has endured for so long. The title track is a pulsing, grinding tech-house number, its melancholic hooks redolent of the more epic end of Kompakt's output during the mid-00s. "Drone", by contrast, follows a stripped back approach, with Human Machine putting a focus on a throbbing, acid-soaked bass and sheets of metallic percussion. Finally, there's the pulsing bass and filtered, Ibiza-friendly synths of "Janus", a track that is sure to become a staple during sundown DJ performances across the Mediterranean this summer.

Review: The history of Portuguese-Japanese relations goes back to the 16th century, when the European maritime nation made some rather futile attempts at missionising. Takumi Motokawa is a Berlin-based percussionist/pianist/composer who graduated from the New Zealand School of Music, who collaborates with Portuguese artist JEPE here. He has built a solid resume in music after much success as a solo artist releasing music on Get Physical, Brown Eyed Boyz, Beef Records and his own Blossom Kollektiv imprint. Some beautiful music to be experienced on their new collaboration the Battera EP: from the breathtaking bridging of the gap between deep house and neoclassical on "Hope", through to the deep and contemplative chill-out groove of "Wait Is Over".

Review: With releases already racked up on Kindisch, Murmur and Hypercolour, it's obvious that Alex Jones isn't another generic tech-house artist. Jones's ability to squeeze new ideas out of existing forms becomes all the more apparent on "Have It Your Way", where doubled up, dubby claps and a pulsing bass frame Shoeda's off-centre vocals. Similarly on "30 Lengths", Jones does the unexpected and underpins a jacking, Chicago-style track with splurging bass tones. "5 Minute Warning" is also from left of centre, its delicate glassy bells combined with a mid-tempo groove and out there vocals for another offbeat gem.

Review: On this excellent two-tracker, Hamburg-based tech-house boffins Kollektiv Turmstrasse (AKA Christian Hilscher and Nico Plagemann) get the remix treatment from the always reliable Jimpster and Robag Wruhme. While the former's typically slinky deep house rub of "Was Bleibt" has peaktime potential (think sweet strings, soaring vocals and faithfully chunky bottom end pressure), it's the Wighomy Brothers man who most impresses. His version of "Heimat" offers more atmospheric thrills, building a deliciously crackly groove around booming low end pulses, cascading music box figures and a truly spellbinding combination of strings and harp. It's nothing less than mesmerising - deep tech-house at its best.
