Review: On German producer and Aleph label founder Aera's latest release, the coalescing of influences from the past forty years of electronic music is audible. From the early electronic-style noises that warble over the bubbly acid pulse on the title track to the deeper than deep house of "Krystal Close" and the Mathew Jonson-sounding micro-trance melodies of "Keeping the Book", Running Hot is nothing if not adventurous and diverse. Innervisions also deserves praise for its choice of remixer; Steve Rachmad is not the most immediate name one would associate with the German label, but he does a fine job here, turning "Keeping the Book" into a deep, pulsing techno track, accentuating the original version's beautiful spacey-ness.

Review: Fresh from the release of his umpteenth album, Sebastien Devaud pops up on Innervisions with regular vocalist Scalde in tow. There's no original version, just two terrific - and near epic - reworks from Innvervisions bossman Dixon. As you'd expect, he does a good job balancing his usual shuffling, swinging beats and percussive builds with some of the original's more melodic elements (which, oddly, include snatches of choral singing, spooky organs and sweet guitar licks). The instrumental dub is expansive enough, but the full vocal mix is seriously grandiose - a ten-minute builder that just grows and grows.

Agoria & Francesco Tristano - "Kick the Peace" (part 2) - (9:18) 122 BPM
from $1.97
Review: Agoria has enjoyed a long working relationship with Luxembourg-raised classical pianist turned experimental composer Francesco Tristano, having released a number of the latter's works on his Infine label. Here, they join forces for "Kick The Peace (part 2)", the highlight of a smart two-track EP for Innervisions. Woozy, intricate, musically complex and spooky, it impressively fuses Tristano's compositional skills and love of intertwining melodies with Agoria's shuffling grooves and techno influences. While an impressive piece of instrumental music, it's also got enough chops to work a dancefloor. The EP's other track, Agoria's solo effort "Scala", has more immediate dancefloor charms, not least some hustling, classic house drums, typical Innervisions build and some delicious piano melodies.

from $1.97
Review: Ame bring out the bells and horns for the duo's latest two track EP which begins with the twists and turns of "Tatischeff", a Balearic-tinged bassline-driven progressive house production tipped with euphoric touches of Italo disco. "Den Ratta" on the other hand opts for something percussive, and clocking in at almost nine minutes, allows Ame the time to confuse, love and tease the dancefloor into climax the Innervisions way.

Review: Ame have always been an inventive pair, but even by their standards this is a departure. Along with Amampondo, they've laid down a delicious chunk of ethno-house that just bristles with summery energy. There's infectious ethnic (possibly West African) lead and backing vocals, looped-up acoustic guitars, heavy electronic melodies and, naturally, some deliciously epic builds based around deep organ chords. While the first version is closer in style to much of their previous output, it's the second version that really hits the spot - if only for the sweetness of the production and the summery strut of the composition. It won't be everyone's cup of tea, but we think it's spiffing.

Agatha - (7:13) 117 BPM
from $1.97
Review: Over the last nine years, Dixon's Innvervisions label has cornered the market in deep, emotive, gently building deep house. Their tracks - long, sensuous, intricate and often beguiling - inhabit the middle ground between deep house, slow techno and (whisper it quietly) post-progressive house. This two-tracker for sometime DiYnamic man David August fits the mould perfectly. "Epikur", in particular, is a thing of great beauty, with gently unfolding pianos, alien chords and winding electronics tumbling down over a sumptuously touchy-feely groove. "Agatha" is a touch more upbeat, with exotic, humid melodies offering a nice contrast to August's dreamy production. Like "Epikur", it's almost unfeasibly evocative.

Young World - (7:19) 123 BPM
from $1.97
Played by: Resident Advisor
Review: This German duo has released separately on labels like Souvenir and Pasta Musik, but Young World is an impressive collaborative record." Who is Manfred?" sounds as much inspired by pointillist, minimal techno as house, with its hypnotic, bleepy groove. Midway through, there is a glorious transition, with the tones giving way to bird song samples and breathy breakdowns. The tile track goes in the opposite direction. It starts with understated beats and mellow pads, before gradually moving into a demented acid spiral midway through. However, it seems like this pair's first love is deep, musical sounds and the track ends with a tranced-out denouement.

Gyser - (6:52) 125 BPM
from $1.97
Review: It has been four long years since South African producer Culoe De Song last graced Dixon's Innervisions imprint. Happily, this belated return - a year after dropping his impressive Exodus album on Soulistic - sees him at the top of his form. "Y.O.U.D" is, in many ways, what you'd expect - a dense but picturesque blend of thick tribal percussion, fluttering electronics, sampled yelps and eyes-wide-shut melodies. He opts for altogether deeper vibe of "Geyser", layering dreamy chords and hazy melodies atop a hypnotic, shuffling groove blessed with delicious atmosphere. Strong stuff, all told; it's a pity it's been so long between drinks.

Lost In A Moment (Dixon rework) - (9:22) 123 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
from $1.97
Review: Given the involvement of Craig Richards' former Tyrant sparring partner, Lee Burridge, it's perhaps not surprising that "Lost In A Moment" is decidedly melodic, rather epic and bordering on progressive house in its outlook. It's not surprising that it appealed to Dixon, either; this is deep house that slowly unfolds over 10 sumptuous minutes, with beats that pop and click while melodies wind their way around cosmic pads. Dixon's rework is, if anything, even more grandiose, beefing up the beats while adding even more layers of vaguely cosmic chords and synth-flute melody. Honestly, it's like a German deep houser's take on prog. And it's amazing.

Review: One third of Innervisions, one half of Ame and The Howling and one of the all round modern greats of techno and house music. Under his own name for the first time, Frank Wiedemann unleashes more sure-fire and emotive dancefloor intelligence on The Moorthon EP. Starting out with the soulful tech house bounce of "Moorthon II" he gets more on the vibe you know him for ie: moody and epic with "Kleiner Vogel" with its dark strings, wonky synth leads and adrenalised rhythm. But he saves the best for last on the bittersweet techno-soul of "Moorthon I" featuring some immaculate programming and truly stunning synth textures from a true master of the sound.

Pollux - (7:42) 121 BPM
from $1.97
Review: German duo Frankey & Sandrino are back again on Innervisions their third release for Dixon and Ame's label thus far. On "Wega" it's a deep and spacey tech house affair, with exotic choral chants reminiscent of Villalobos' "Enfants" used sparingly over a tunneling and entrancing groove. Next offering "Pollux" is the real winner on here though. This darkly minimal house experiment builds gradually into a chill and glitchy house jam with sparse rhythm arrangements and buzzy melodies.

Lukida - (6:48) 121 BPM
from $1.97
Review: If there's one thing that Innervisions is good at, it's delivering heavily electronic deep house that achieves the perfect balance between grandiose builds, stretched-out periods of groove, and trippy, main room flourishes. That pretty much sums up this latest EP from sometime Drumpoet Community and Moodmusic regulars Frankey and Sandrino. "Acamar" leads the way, transforming from a picturesque deep house shuffler to a big room anthem via extended breakdowns, woozy synthesizers and bold, Latin-influenced electronic melodies. "Lukida" offers a deeper take on the same formula, with rising and falling electronic melodies, sweet chords and an altogether looser, more percussive groove.

Review: Here, Michael Gracioppo's tactile 2013 deep house gem gets the remix treatment, with Tale of Us & Vaal and German producer Recondite providing the proverbial spit and polish. The former - famed for their woozy productions on Visionquest - deliver a typically atmospheric rework, lacing selected snippets of Wayne Tennant's heady vocals over a claustrophobic groove, murky chords and tumbling melodies. Recondite, meanwhile, delivers two reworks. While his Club Remix is tasty - think alien synths, touchy-feely grooves and wide-eyed late night vibes - it's the alternative Blue Train Ride Remix that stands out. It features many of the same elements, but adds some delicate electronic melodies that compliment the sturdy bassline and sparse production.

Review: Michael Gracioppo only made his debut earlier this summer with a release on MCDE Recordings but already he's being hunted high and low for his delicate but diamond-strong sounds. Full of contradictions, it's clear and resonant but shrouded in shadows; strong and methodical but somehow florid and brittle. Its steady ticking heartbeat lies underneath some hauntingly beautiful verses by Canadian deep house vocalist Wayne Tennant. It's chillingly good - a track that lingers and reverberates after it finishes. No wonder legendary label Innervisions snapped Gracippo's hand off for it.

Review: The original version of "Phases" first appeared on Ninja Tune sub-label Counter, and now Innervisions are putting out new interpretations of it. This is hardly surprising as Howling comprises singer Ry Cuming and Frank Wiedemann, one half of Ame and Innervisions co-owner. The only version that re-appears here is the dub interpretation, where a throbbing low end underscores Cumings' quasi-operatic outpourings. Elsewhere, Alex.Do turns "Phases" into an epic, soaring affair, guided by dramatic organs and a pulsing groove. The other versions, from Toto Chiavetta, explore a less obvious direction. On the "Colour Zero" version, layered drums and an organic rhythm underpin the unraveling vocal, while on the "Colour Two" take, flutes and flowing piano lines make for the most suitable accompaniment to Cumings' vocals.

Between The Notes - (9:23) 123 BPM
from $1.97
Review: Given his previous productivity, Andre Lodemann has been rather quiet of late, with his last release of note being the Coming My Way EP on DFTD in 2014. Here, he hits back hard, dropping an impressive two-tracker for Dixon's increasingly dark Innervisions outlet. While virtual flipside "Between The Notes" is particularly stripped back and wonky - think 10 minutes of throbbing, minimal-influenced grooves, epic builds and, eventually, spine tingling backwards strings - it's title track "Leaving The Comfort Zone" that really hits the spot. While similarly stretched-out in mindset, it's altogether tougher, and the minor key melodies a little spookier. It's also rather psychedelic, despite the presence of what sounds like a sly guitar sample from Odyssey's version of "Going Back To My Roots".

Review: Here's something to savour: a first collaborative EP from long-serving French house producer Manoo and Hamburg-based Ivorian (Mr) Raoul K. Given both producers' heritage and track record, it's little surprise to hear impassioned, West African vocals and layered, tribal-influenced percussion amongst the spiraling synth lines and restless, ever-building grooves. Innervisions boss man provides two typically epic, stretched-out reworks - Vocal and Dub interpretations - that both sound like peak-time anthems in the waiting. While the acclaimed DJ/producer wisely includes some notable breakdowns, it's the driving feel of the groove and gradual increase in intensity that really impresses. Arguably best of all, though, is the Trikk Dub Mix, a deeper concoction that boasts looser tribal drum programming, traditional instrumentation and hypnotic tech-house electronics.

Review: Talk about a transformation; former Minus mainstay and minimal stalwart Marc Houle goes from ping-pong beats and hiccuping rhythms to this deep, 80s-referencing house release. " Don't Want To Watch You Read" is a mesmerising affair, centred on a booming bass and featuring a mysterious vocal that is similar to the one that featured on Brian Kage's record on FXHE earlier this year. There is a reference to Houle's minimal past on the rushing sirens of the Golden Filter remix of "Read", but in the main this is a radical departure. The title track is a pulsing electronic disco affair, while the Red Axes remix of "Read" is an epic, EBM-fueled reshape.

Review: Dixon and Ame's label has always excelled at finding and releasing music by new talent - and Simple Process provides compelling evidence that they remain at the top of their A&R game. The release starts with "Flashback", where a stripped back but atmospheric techno groove provides the backing for a chopped up vocal sample. It's reminiscent of Dial at its most dance floor friendly. "Way Out" comes next, where a churning 'Washing Machine'-style bass underpins shimmering keys. Innervisions was always a musical label, and true to form, the last track on this debut is the neo-classical piano of "Fake Eldorado".

Review: Amazingly, it's 20 years since the release of Ian Pooley's breakthrough club hit, "Roller Skate Disco". In the years since, he's shifted focus numerous times, releasing material on such labels as NRK, Force Tracks, Simple Records and Innervisions. Here he returns to Dixon's acclaimed imprint with two more tracks of woozy, heavily electronic deep tech-house. "The Beginning (Dub)" kicks things off, lacing simple electronic melodies and synth bleeps over a moody, atmospheric, late night groove. Pooley ratchets up the tension throughout, with long, drawn-out chords pushing us towards a glassy-eyed conclusion. "Floris" is a little deeper, with organ chords and melodies that seem to creep up on you slowly from behind. With a similarly hypnotic, shuffling groove to "The Beginning (Dub)", it feels like an early morning gem.

Review: Keinemusik co-founder Rampa rarely makes appearances on other labels. In fact, this Innervisions label debut is only his fifth release away from "home territory" since 2008. The title track sets the tone, with the Berlin-based producer peppering a shuffling, soft-focus tech house groove with ear-pleasing chord progressions and undulating electronic melody lines. Afro-inspired builder "Bimma" is a deeper, woozier and atmospheric affair, with African vocal samples and marimba style flourishes helping enhance the track's sticky and humid mood. Closer "Fluke", meanwhile, is a gently woozy and quietly positive late night treat - all rising and falling electronic melodies, crunchy drum fills and locked-in kick-drum hits.

Review: It's a while since Rotterdam-based Randy Tjon A Fon made his debut under the Rancido guise, suggesting that his career has stalled since delivering that first EP back in 2010. Clearly, he's made an impression on Dixon, as the veteran German DJ has signed him to Innervisions. There's much to admire, from the melancholic melodies, bubbling electronics and heart-wrenching tech-house grooves of opener "The Journey" (a hook-up with longtime studio pal Madison Groove), to the ultra-deep, Osunlade style global house shuffle of "The Encounter". That features a particularly world-weary spoken word vocal from Kems, who also lends a hand on standout track "Play You My Guitar". Available in both vocal and Dub versions, it's a wonderfully yearning, emotion-rich trawl through enveloping deep house territory.
