Review: Juju and Jordash are rather good at making albums. Their last full-length excursion, 2012's brilliant Techno Primitivism, was a gloriously maudlin and evocative affair, as influenced by drowsy ambient and experimental electronica as house and techno. While there are some similarly dark tracks lurking in the shadows of third album Clean Cut (see the creepy "Swamp Things"), for the most part it's a pleasingly dancefloor-centric concoction. That's not to say that they've packed it with jolly moments - the tipsy, melodious "Anywhere" and dub disco-meets-deep house wonk-out "SP Shakes" aside - but rather their leftfield blends of house and techno have a more club-friendly feel. The results are, for the most part, extremely good, with the rave-era revivalism of "Whippersnapper" (a kind of darkroom, Detroit-influenced take on T-Coy's "Carino") standing out.

Review: Fans of the likes of Yellow Magic Orchestra will find much to enjoy on this five-track downtempo/leftfield EP from Dutch duo Lamellen - there's something distinctly 'Forbidden Colours'-like about the delicate synths that lead the ambient-not-ambient 'Horse Massage', for starters. 'Spider' leans more towards angular, new wave-y Italo-disco, 'Oyster' is an experimental slo-mo/Balearic oddity with little fluttery sounds that seem to mimic birdsong or animal noises, 'Railrunner' comes on like early 80s synth-funk via Music From Ceefax, while closer 'Pippo Denemarken' has a quirky, circus-like feel and features a lovely nagging, lolloping Hammond riff.

Sleeping Fury - (3:55) 100 BPM
Review: Territroy is a collaboration between Panagiotis Melidis, who produces as Larry Gus, and Stathis Kalatzis, who used to work as Mr. Statik. Issued on Dekmantel's UFO spin-off, it's a dubbed out masterpiece. "Delirium Vivens" is a rolling, vocal-sample heavy groove, while "Wax Smiles" sees the pair drop a more abstract piece, with dead-paced drums supporting the swirling voices. On "Sleeping Fury", there's a more dramatic approach with plucked strings prevailing while "Instar" is a deeper affair, pushing the project closer to what could be deemed to be conventional techno. It's only a temporary dalliance however, and "Upside Down Sinner" marks a return to the kind of swirling, psychedelic dub that makes this album so enthralling.

Review: Cyclicality Between Procyon & Gomeisa is a lofty title by anyone's standards, but firmly in-keeping with the psychedelic influences behind Vakula's distinctive brand of inspired electronic wizardry. It's fair to say that the lauded Ukranian is on fine form on this third studio full-length, serving up 14 trippy tracks that variously fuse heady ambience, dub techno, new age deep house, electronic jazz, dubbed-out blues and, perhaps most surprisingly, cosmic disco (see the excellent "Intergalactic Funk"). As usual, Vakula's production skills and unique vision shine through, giving the album a coherent feel despite his impressive, genre-bending antics.

Review: Lena Willikens is not only the first female DJ to curate a compilation for Dekmantel's Selectors series, but also the first to put the emphasis on previously unreleased music rather than dusty-fingered crate-digging gems. That's not to say there aren't excellent older cuts present - see the decidedly psychedelic brilliance of Sandoz's ambient dub earworm "Morning Star (Dubmix)" and the trippy 2001 industrial dub techno of Vromb's "Amalgame" - just that there are a few more previously unheard killers. These include, but aren't limited too, the drowsy broken techno of Jasss's "Little Lines", Parrish Smith's jacking industrial house shuffler "Minima" and the druggy, mind-altering synthesizer soundtrack throb of Borusiade's intoxicating "Night Drive (An Exercise in Indulgence)".
