The Galaxy Collapsed Into A Point - (6:09) 156 BPM
Review: Rob Cloth finally returns to Berlin's party-turned-label, Leisure System, with a fine blend of his very own bass house amalgamations. "The Smallest Measurable Space" kicks the EP of with a heavy dose of bass and boken drum patterns - a guaranteed monster on the Funktion One's - followed by the more IDM-fuelled "Cracks In The Fermament", a lovely bit of sci-fi breaks action. "Thin Shell, Inner Void" is the oddest and most distorted groove yet thanks to its complex drum patterns and folding arrangement, while "The Galaxy Collapsed Into A Point" takes care of the ambience with its masterful strokes of pads and lonesome synths. Tip!

Clockwork Atom - (7:37)
   
Islands Of Glass - (5:10) Biggest-selling track on this release
   
The Descent - (5:08)
Review: From the peerless Detroit electro of Dopplereffekt to Rob Clouth's glitch techno, Leisure System is fast becoming one of the most diverse labels operating in the electronic music space. It's hard to say if Atom will find favour with those who hang on Gerald Donald's every note, but there is no doubt that Clouth does a fine job of interpreting decidedly Germanic influences. This is especially audible on the title track, a compelling mish-mash of glistening trance melodies and subtle, micro-house rhythms. "Islands of Glass" is a more abstract, stripped back affair, but melodies are never far from a Clouth release, and "The Descent" teems with melancholic piano playing before unexpectedly breaking down into a cacophony of warped noise.

Review: French producer Julien Saillenfait began producing music at the age of 19. His prior releases on Clubwerks, Soul Notes and Boysnoize Records have been supported by some of the biggest names in techno. His mission with the Deapmash project is simply to provide bangers to ravers and DJs: and it's safe to say that's mission accomplished. On "Halcyon" he deconstructs rave techno into new forms and to interesting effect, while on "Solar 909" he teams up with Benjamin Damage for a furious broken beat techno workout that blows the bloody doors off!

Zygote - (4:11) 151 BPM
Review: The somewhat mysterious Dopplereffekt project founded by Drexciya's Gerald Donald ends their six year production hiatus with this Tetrahymena EP for Berlin label Leisure System. Established by Donald in the mid '90s, Dopplereffekt remain one of techno's most enigmatic propositions with their brand of cold, stark electro complemented by a bold, Cold War-indebted aesthetic and a general disregard for performing live or giving interviews. Though Donald has remained active production wise, developing the NRSB-11 project with DJ Stingray which recently saw the release of the politically loaded Commodified album, the Tetrahymena EP is a welcome return for Dopplereffekt and undoubtedly the most high profile release yet from Leisure System.

Review: More singular electro sounds from one of the genre's most seminal artist's courtesy of Barker & Baumecker's always impressive Leisure System. On their new effort entitled Cellular Automata, the duo of Rudolf Klorzeiger aka Gerald Donald (one half of legends Drexciya) and Michaela To-Nan present their first full length album in over ten years. Gothic synth-wave for showroom dummies as per usual on "Von Neumann Probe", imaginary soundtracks for 80's dystopian sci-fi flicks like on "Isotropy" through to downright evocative drama by way of analogue synthesis like on the powerful "Exponential Decay". These Motor City legends continue to push boundaries with their unique musical vision.

Dopplereffekt - "Delta Wave" - (5:43) 139 BPM
   
Objekt - "Ganzfeld" - (5:56) 147 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
Review: In something of a dream pairing for Leisure System, this split disc spans the old guard of electro and those well versed in pushing it into new contortions. Dopplereffekt is of course one of the most lauded of all post-Drexciya projects, and new material comes few and far between. "Delta Wave" is a lavish, sweeping wonder of celestial voices and sci-fi mystery that satisfies all your desires without sounding like a re-hash of old material. On the flipside Objekt has risen to the occasion and delivered one of his most outright electro-infused belters to date, keeping the beat rigid but funky, and working similar amounts of drawn out pads into the mix while keeping the crafty edits and playful sounds as limber as ever.

Review: It sounds like the latest signing to Leisure System has followed the label's tagline - "modern electronic music for dancing" - to a tee. Over the course of four tracks, JakoJako displays a natural gift for pushing the envelope while holding the floor. On "F22.0", this takes shape in the form of an eerie techno stepper; "Kogn. Dissonanz" in contrast, is lighter and less oppressive, but the supporting rhythm still niggles and pulses insistently. "Resilienz" sees JakoJako go deeper and more atmospheric, pushing towards the kind of blissful sonic nirvana that Lone usually inhabits, while closing track "Katharsis" is a slowed down, dubbed out arrangement, full of melodic twists and turns.

Mesonoxian - (6:07)
   
Ls6 - (6:32)
Played by: Shadow Dancer, Klient
Review: From the label that released Dopplereffekt's first EP in seven years comes this radically different record. "Kronos" sounds like a particularly racuous take on vintage Underworld; its rhythm hurtles recklessly like an out of control juggernaut, the vocal is as deranged as Karl Hyde, while the hoover bass could be borrowed from an old hardcore record. "Mesonoxian" has echoes of early 90s dance music as well, largely because of the way that a raging sub-bass is combined with a soulful diva vocal. Finally, "Ls6" marks a radical departure: instead of high octane techno it's a deeper, broken beat affair, led by rich chords.
