Review: The legendary Spaniard Juan Rico (Reeko) aka Architectural on Maceo Plex's Ellum Audio? We're just as perplexed (no pun intended) as you are! But if this is welcoming a sudden change of direction for the label, then we're all for it. Expanding on previous efforts, Rico further explores the dubbier shades of hypnotic techno once again for the Heaven Can Wait EP. "Dream Driver" opening proceedings in a droney and trance inducing fashion, with main room/pre-peak time adrenaline in mind. It's a more subdued, deeper and minimal affair on the rather lush atmospherics of "Hidden" while on the flip we've got "Surreal Restaurant"; which is most likely inspired by grabbing a doner kebap after a long hight of clubbing in the German capital and musically it's fully of icy, cavernous delay drenched aesthetics drifting off into nice trails of reverb.

D-KNOX - "PSLAM 83:13" - (5:50) 139 BPM
DJ-WHO - "Give A Little More" (MIke Parker remix) - (6:56) 130 BPM
Karius & Baktus - "Wurzelbehandlung" - (6:06) 126 BPM
Review: Maceo Plex's label deserves kudos for digging deep into techno's heritage for this split release. D-Knox has been releasing music since the mid-90s on labels like Sect, Black Nation and his own Sonic Mind, and "Psalm 83:13", his contribution to Under The Radar, captures the spirit of Detroit techno. Based on an uptempo rhythm and tough kicks, it features mysterious Motor City pads and a ghostly vocal. Knox is not the only techno luminary here: Mike Parker provides a remix of DJ Who's "Give A Little More", with the veteran US artist adding layer upon layer of acid to the original. Representing the new school are Karius & Baktus with "Wurzelbehnadlung", a
grainy, gritty dub techno affair.

Review: Danny Daze debuts on the Ellum Audio juggernaut overseen by Maceo Plex and Alta's Ellum Audio with The Calm EP. The title track bounces in bass as slight flanging effects traverse up and down its arrangement along with other subtle and sinister synths. "I See You There" sports a poppier feel with warmer synths and vocoded vocals, but Daze brings it back to the dancefloor with some spazzed out resonators. Dexter's remix to "The Calm" raves up the original with cut vocals, a sultry spoken word sample and naughty acidics.

Played by: Juno Recommends Minimal/Tech House
Review: In the time since he first appeared on Ellum Audio with The Calm last year, Miami-based house producer Danny Daze has dropped a pair of records on Jimmy Edgar's Ultramajic, remix Daniel Avery as well as debut on the Speicher series from Kompakt. It's fair to say Maceo Plex's label is one that people take notice of then; so it will be intriguing to see where Daze pops up next after the excitement settles down on this second Ellum Audio release. The title track on the Flange EP is an unrelenting slice of peak time techno with the techier overtones one expects from a Ellum Audio release and it's well complemented by the markedly more unhinged Dub version. Closing track "Ritmo" offers a calming alternative to what came before though it's still got plenty of dancefloor potency.

Review: Italian house producer Dino Lenny arrives on Ellum Audio with a suitably sparse ode to the weekend in the shape of It's Saturday. Ellum Audio describes Lenny as salubrious which we guess is another way to remark on the London-based producer's prolific approach to making club tracks! You can sense the drop arriving on "It's Saturday" as Lenny draws out some four minutes of stripped back techno before sinking into a sea called atmosphere. Here the titular vocals wash over before Lenny builds the track back up. Lenny employs a similar strategy on B-side track "I Am Changing" which has Maceo Plex written all over it.

Review: Any act that derives its name from the Almighty could be setting themselves up for a fall, but not in this instance. The title track is a ponderous, dubby affair, its lumbering beats underpinning pensive melodies, and in a similarly contemplative vein is "Are We" (featuring Egle Sirvydyte). There, the rhythm is faster and pulsing, but the female vocal combined with the trancey synths makes for a spiritual techno groove. Finally, "Apnea" is more subtle, with pitter pattering beats and an infectious bassline insinuating itself into the arrangement. Ys offers conclusive proof that the devil does not have a monopoly on all the best tunes.

Fiddler - (6:58) 122 BPM

Look Son, Dragons Come - (5:34) 120 BPM
Played by: Resident Advisor
Review: Lithuania isn't that well known for electronic music, but it's where Mindaugas Lapinskis comes from. Working as Gardens of God, he makes a refreshing sound on Jurassic. Sharing a relatively similar space as Prologue or Italian techno artist P.God, Lapinskis drops the droning "Fiddler", powered by a slap bass and huge snare rolls. The overall effect is disorienting and strangely alluring. On the title track, he veers into a dubby sound characterized by layered textures. Lapinskis remains in this space for the closing track, "Look Son, Dragons Come", which sees him favour an equally understated but more tripped out sound. Clearly, something monstrous is stirring in Lithuania.

On Patrol (original mix) - (6:31) 106 BPM
Holy Day (original mix) - (5:50) 118 BPM
Review: An Italo disco-themed Phantom Of The Opera overture with a touch of Michael Mayer influence, and flickers of Holy Ghost's breakout hit "Hold On", is something of the sound you should expect from Good Guy Mikesh's From Another World EP. Both versions of "Place Of Love" have the potential to put lumps in dancers throats the same way The Star-Spangled Banner does for American nationalists, while "On Patrol" is pure, bass pumping heat. The drums in "Holy Day" almost reference that of French electro pairing Justice, only Mikesh's synths, keys and chimes belong to the soundtrack of a '70s sci-fi cult classic.

Review: In something of a surprise move, Maceo Plex has managed to snap up Dutch veteran Jaydee of "Plastic Dreams" fame for a fresh track after many years of silence, finding the producer embracing the modern age with the slick drive of "Pulsate". Moody tech house is the order of the day, riding on crisp beats and clean chords, before Plex himself tackles a space-baiting remix of the track Jaydee released under the Graylock moniker, "The Payback". Fellow Dutchman Steve Rachmad is on hand for a remix of "Pulsate" that revels in dubwise delay and soaring synth work perfect for big room maneuvers.

Review: Jupiter Jazz is the new alias for our main man, Danny Daze, who's been keeping busy as of late releasing plenty of EPs and recording one hell of a podcast for RA. His first experimentation under the Jupiter Jazz moniker comes courtesy of Maceo Plex and Alta's Ellum Audio, a label reserved strictly for the freshest tech beats around. "Shake It Mama" takes some gorgeously crunchy percussion shots and goes for the all-out chug-a-lug, whereas "Technology" is a slightly more Detroit-slanted pouncer, merging 90's style vocals to one of the warmest basslines you'll hear in a while - it really is a pleasure to be caressed by their mesmeric power. Last but not least, "Good Girl" goes for a broken-beat approach, where the previous shots of 4/4 are replaced by sharp, rustling snares and haphazard mutant bass bleeps - big vibes on this one and we can't wait to hear more from Jupiter Jazz...

Review: Maceo Plex returns on his respected Ellum Audio imprint with a new album. Here the fellow known to his Mum as Eric Estornel presents some highly engineered grooves that reflect his extensive background in producing techno and electro; way back to his modest Dallas, Texas beginnings under the tutelage of greats like Gerard Hanson (Covenxtion/E.R.P.) where he used such aliases as Mariel Ito and Maetrik. Return to Solar is certainly diverse in its execution of various moods and grooves but overall has a definite sense of soul and emotion throughout. We particularly enjoyed the the intelligent electro of "The Replicant V1" or "Love On Time", the hi-tech soul of "Shoulder Of Orion" and the tough futurist stomp of "Traktion".

Review: Having made his name with a decidedly fluorescent blend of retro-futurist house revivalism, the logical next step for Maceo Plex was always going to be working with his heroes. Here, he joins forces with former Hacienda resident and '90s remixer of choice Jon DaSilva for a cut based on the latter's unreleased remix of a Jones Girls cover. It's pretty much what you'd expect from both parties rolled into one; the booming synth-bass and cyber-synths of Plex, versus the '90s vocal stylings and bumpin' disco-house beats of DaSilva. Plex himself delivers a thunderous, techno-flavoured Dub, while solo bonus cut "Futre Musik", a tribute to German tech-housers Closer Musik, rises and falls for 10 gorgeous minutes.

Review: Taking brains to other dimensions for well over a decade now, Maceo returns to wax for the first time this year with two certified brain-melters: "The Tesseract" tackles the complexity of the fourth dimension with a classic rolling drum arrangement wrapped in perplexing layers of bass. "5th Dimension Groove" turns your brain inside out even more as the running groove swoops to sub-frequency levels before a stark bass roar enters the fray and turns everything on its head. Maceo has never been one-dimensional.

Review: House music has always been about reinventing existing sources, and Maetrik upholds this proud tradition on Beast. Known for his gnarly rhythms and gritty basslines, "The Poem" is not short of such elements, as doubled up drums and a surging bass provide the backing. But Maetrik also mines the past and deep house lovers will quickly notice the use of Rastafarian Mutabaruka's vocals, which originally graced 1999's Dis Poem on Guidance. Maceo Plex takes control of "Walk Alone" and turns it into a slinky, pulsing techno groove with a menacing undercurrent, while "To The Top" is typical Maetrik fare, its buzzing bassline and industrial strength drums creating a claustrophobic feeling.

Review: Scoring big hits across the modern house underground, Maxxi Soundsystem makes his way to Maceo Plex's Ellum Audio imprint for the warm and soothing tones of "Stella's Way", which centres around a looping synth riff that sounds as though it was lifted straight out of 80s radio. Huxley's remix pares down any such frivolities, homing in on the scattered vocal flourishes and dropping a mean shuffle and off-key chords for some ultimately funky functionality. Shall Ocin rounds things off with a version that capitalises on the lush melodies of the original and bolsters them with additional synths for an equally fuzzy jaunt.

Review: Michigan's Isaac Delongchamp has released music under the North Lake moniker on a decent number of respected labels by now, and it's pleasing to see the artist coming into his own. He comes through on Ellum Audio right here, Maceo Plex's PST recent project, with three militant, techno-filtered arrangements. The first, "Shimmer Land", slaps down a phat drum beat over airy melodies and sci-fi bleeps, then "Solid Metal Funk" provides a bit of class and elegance thanks to a sleek house groove and, finally, "Paper Dreams" steps into the abyss with a beautifully aquatic dance groover that immerses is in an ocean of electronic funk. High quality gear, right here...

Review: Maceo's label Ellum Audio is really beginning to find its place in the tech scene; lavishing listeners with a salubrious, rolling funk, it's been just as much of a breath of fresh air as Maceo's productions themselves. Put the two together and you're onto a purebred winner... "Filthy Mama" twists and turns with the sonic toxicity of 2020 Soundsystem record performed live while "Stimulation" is more prog-inclined with heaps of beautiful emotion laced throughout.

Review: Few house producers have enjoyed quite as rapid a rise in 2011 than Maceo Plex. Here he jumps ship from Crosstown Rebels to launch his own label, offering two typically emotional chunks of Visionquest-ish synth-house. While the epic "Aint No Love" opts for a sci-fi tinged approach, it's A-side builder "Stay High Baby" that really impresses. Working with many of his usual elements - those touchy-feely vocals, a snatch of disco guitar, emotion-rich chords, snappy beats, big breakdowns, echo-laden pianos and a dash of acid tweakery - he carefully builds a naggingly hooky concoction that bueatifully ebbs and flows throughout.

Review: Eric Estornel rose to fame a few years ago, from what seemed like out of nowhere. But unbeknownst to many was churning out sleek electro for a long time before as Mariel Ito. But it was with Maceo Plex that he really found his groove with anthems such as "Your Style" and Sleazy Rider". Fast forward to 2015 he's still at the top of his game as a DJ (check the polls) and as a producer as heard striking out on his own imprint Ellum Audio. It sees him temporarily return to his old ways with a chill electro number that ticks all the boxes; vocoder, soaring analogue strings and warm chunky arpeggiated bassline. If that wasn't enough, he flips the script on us again in the form of right techno banger "Solar Detroit" sounding like something on Oscar Mulero's Pole Group. Nice one!

Review: How does a label follow up a surprise summer smash? In the case of Ellum Audio and the excellent New York Is Alright from TV Baby, founder Maceo Plex returns with his first original material for the label in nearly a year, teaming up with Odd Parent's Maars on Going Back. A simple two tracker aimed at the dancefloors, the lead original mix takes the vocals of Florence Bird and weaves them deep into the groove of a dark, sonically hypnotic arrangement with all the usual Plex nuances like crisp drums, gloopily foreboding bassline and clipped strings. The dub version naturally discards with Bird's contribution yet retains the intensity.

Review: Raxon hails from the United Arab Emirates but now calls Barcelona home. His new one for Maceo Plex's always reliable Ellum Audio here is absolutely hot; following up previous releases on Sincopat and NM2. On "Majoris" he goes for a grinding and wonky tech house cut that's geared for some mind melting moments later in the night and takes its cues from brazen electro influences; massive drop on this one! Second offering "Sin Control" features some epically soaring arpeggios over a slinky yet adrenalized groove and was our favourite: expect to be hearing this one a lot in clubland in 2017!

Review: Hailing from Argentina but living in Barcelona, Sefton returns to Maceo Plex's label with a deep, hypnotic techno release. The title track resounds to a purring bass, crisp break beats and a sensuous sound-scape that calls to mind sun loungers and the warm air of the Adriatic, even in the depths of winter. "The Dawn of Man" conjures up a radically different mood, with Sefton focusing on a rolling, dub groove and layer upon layer of moody electronics to create an ominous techno sound. By contrast, the alternate version of "Man" is deeper, and more atmospheric as he takes his cue from Detroit techno, while Maceo Plex's take on "Stranded in Passion" sees the Ellum boss deliver a sub-bass heavy electro version.

Review: Argentinean producer Nicolas Abalos continues his impressive run under the Shall Ocin guise with this split release on Ellum Audio following some well received transmissions for Leftroom Limited, ALiVE and Culprit. You may think Lurking Wolves vs Space Localizer is a curious title, but it simply refers to the name of two tracks here as Shall Ocin shares the release with another Ellum Audio debutant in the shape of Spanish production talent FiberRoot. "Lurking Wolves" is both trippy and driving, the kind of FX heavy number you'd hear deep into a Maceo Plex set, whilst "Space Localizer" from FiberRoot is a masterclass in tension and emotional release.

A decent package is rounded off by Bokler and Bohn's bouncy remix of dreamAwaken's "8 Bit in a Bit".

Review: With practically nothing behind them thus far, TV Baby issue a mighty mean roar that seems to attract some sizable support with plenty more to come in the future. BlackSpun bring a pair of re-versions that capitalise on the no wave style vocals about the city of the title, brooding and stripped down and just a little manic, with the "Acid Dub" getting the paranoia pitch perfect. Maetrik then takes over for a version that makes big rooms moves but still manages to hold down a steady progression rather than any excessive showboating, and the Idjut Boys contribute a cranky remix that heads into decidedly ravey techno territory perfect for getting a good stomp on to.

Review: Having released their fifth album, Dreams, on Darup Associates in April, Danish punk-funk trio Whomadewho jump ship to the Plexmaster's Ellum Audio label for this raft of big name remixes. Maceo Plex naturally features, delivering one of his typically muscular yet emotive remixes of "Heads Above", transforming it into the kind of end of night fare you can imagine closing out a festival set beside the Adriatic Sea. The hypnotic piano loop and sun-soaked vibes of Mario Basanov's take on "Hiding In Darkness" show just why he's such a hit with the Innervisions crew, while FoF Music artist Kyson delivers a sumptuous downtempo version of the same track, swathing the original vocals in symphonic strings and heart-wrenching melody.
