Review: Heidi Sabertooth returns to Lobster Theremin after a few years' absence with this superb release. "Screaming Into The Abyss" is a grainy, acid-soaked electro workout, powered by weighty drums, and not unlike the kind of material that appears on Bunker. On "Slide Into My DM", she opts for a slightly more polished approach, with doubled-up kicks and an offbeat, wonky rhythm prevailing - but it's only a temporary divergence. "Pissed" sees Sabertooth slip back into abrasive mode, with tearing bass and grainy beats prevailing. Meanwhile, the release concludes with the noisy title track, where the US producer ventures into the kind of visceral, tortured area that Gesloten Cirkel occupies, replete with frazzled acid.

Review: The Lobster Theremin team have an almost ingenious ear for unearthing the unusual yet palpable within their catalogue, a theme they once again find themselves subscribed to as Bloomfeld unleashes this outstanding 'Larp OS' LP drop, exploring the vast swathes of the unknown regions surrounding electronic music production. From the almost post-bashment style arrangements of 'Need More Sky' to the icey percussive flutters of 'Osmosis' and euphoric, techno-inspired arrangements of 'Where Were U Rly Born', we find ourselves being thrown left, right and centre with this outstanding collection. Our highlights would include the super swingy synthetics of 'Bad Idea', which really does send us down a wonky avenue indeed, next to the post-dubstep style arrangement of 'QR vs PIN', which again packs a mega punch.

Review: Rove Ranger follows 2020's 101010 release on Lobster Theremin with a four-track release that takes influence from dance music's heritage while moving ahead. "CS80" is a pulsating affair that draws on old school organ stabs, while the title track also looks to the past to shape the future. Powered by shimmering synths and featuring a ghostly vocal sample, it makes for an evocative piece of old school sounding techno. In contrast, "La Manana" is a contemporary affair that is based on tough drums and shot through with dense textures and incessant vocals. "Horse On Acid" closes out the release in full on acid mode.

Review: After firmly establishing her production credentials via a string of white label vinyl releases on her own Rosebud Recordings outlet, Rinse FM host Eliza Rose joins forces with Dublin's M4A4 for a four-tracker on Lobster Theremin. The pair hit the ground running with 'Night Lyfe', a deep, sub-heavy UK garage bumper full of woozy vocal snippets, stabbing organ notes and spacey synths. Rose's distinctive, R&B-influenced vocals come to the fore on drowsy, UKG-influenced deep house roller 'Delectable', while 'Temptation' draws more inspiration from classic Chicago and Detroit deepness. Closing cut 'Trouble Maker', meanwhile, is a barnstorming chunk of vocal jungle that reminded us a little of 'No Government'-era Nicolette.

Review: Trudge is back on Lobster Theremin to follow up the great Self Love Club release here with a full debut LP. No More Motivation is a conceptual opus said to be inspired by tragic life events, yet demonstrates that there's a wide range in the French artist's sonic arsenal. From the rolling and cavernous breaks of opening cut "Bangkok Radio", the glacial and engulfing dub techno of "Mazzomba", taking you to the other side of euphoria on the saucer-eyed ambient journey "Berserk" and going into dystopian electro territory on the suitably titled "Punishments".

Review: Lobster Theremin's penchant for rave and trance-oriented techno is audible on Hard Magick. The work of Copenhagen-based producer and Fast Forward collective member Vixen, it's a high-octane, exhilarating journey. "Vibe Catcher" resounds to spooky synth hooks that unravel over a pulsating groove, while on "Maladaptive Daydreamer", she edges closer to the hypnotic but enthralling sound of 90s labels like Eye Q, thanks to the use of moody bass and nocturnal melodies. "High Femme Fantasy" is a more stripped back affair, with Vixen deploying a bubbling rhythm and hissing percussion as a backdrop for gurgling acid lines. Rounding off the release is Schacke's rolling techno version of "Maladaptive Daydreamer".

Race Against The Time (MRD remix) - (7:56) 150 BPM Hot
Review: While this release has nothing to do with UR themselves, it has echoes of the Detroit collective's darker sensibilities. "Dying Generation" is populated by dense, hardcore riffs and powered by a piledriving rhythm, while on "What Was On Their Mind", influences from this early 90s sensibility are also audible. Featuring intense acid lines and abrasive claps, it's an intense but rewarding peak time workout. "You Are Your Own Distraction" sees this emerging producer opt for a less visceral approach, while still deploying a murky bass and pulsating groove. Rounding off this fine release are the eerie, Mover-esque tones and razor-sharp snares of "Race Against The Time".

Review: It's always an exciting moment to see a new Lobster Theremin drop land in the store, with this latest catalogue addition proving once again why the label holds so much respect from within the breaks community. Jai Dee is on production duty with a killer intro on 'Coming Up Again', a vibrant display of distant drum slides and windy synthesizer sweeps, before euphoria sets in with 'Tears In Your Voice', a homemade to hardcore, stuffed full of electric chord progressions for good measure. From here, the rave feel only intensifies as 'We Can Have It All' unveils more feel good harmonic structure and glittering drum design, getting even the sturnest party-goer up and onto the dancefloor, before 'Hold Love By The Hand' puts the final touches onto the project and rounding it off with a colourful, expressive bang. Lovely work!

Review: Following on from this summer's Deep Impact release on Cyberdome, D3070 debuts on Lobster Theremin with a killer selection that takes the listener through the darker corners of electro. "Orbital" is a high-paced banger rooted in 4/4 kicks and led by a fuzzy bass, while in contrast, the title track sees D3070 slow things down to deliver a bleep-laden, low-slung workout. On "You Got Me", the mysterious producer picks up the pace again to deliver a bass-heavy roller, while "Darkness" is a swampy affair that resounds to grinding riffs and bursts of steely percussion. As the title suggests. D3070 may indeed be invading space, but it's the inner space between the beats where this release comes into its own.

All That Remains - (8:56) 125 BPM Hot
Beyond The Veil - (11:56) 127 BPM
Review: For the first volume in their new 'dubplate series', Lobster Theremin has turned to Harrison BDP, an experienced producer enjoying the most prolific period of his career (for proof, check out his recent outings on Phonica, Lost Palms and SITU Records). It's a smart move, because the two tracks showcased here are amongst the Cardiff-based artist's most magical cuts to date. Opener 'All That Remains' is effortlessly alluring - an ultra-deep affair in which waves of spacey electronics, distant chords and yearning pads lazily stretch out atop bumpin' beats and a brilliant bassline. 'Beyond The Veil' is arguably even better. Rooted in hypnotic, locked-in deep house but smothered in evocative, dub techno style electronics and distant telephone bleeps, it's the kind of track we could happily get lost in for hours.

Review: In the time since their inception, we don't think we have seen a genuinely disappointing release from the Lobster Theremin camp, who continue their exceptional run in 2021 with this monster of a drop from Yosh. We begin with the subtle breaksy-UKG hybrid of the title track 'My Fire', steadily lacing tasty breaksy drum slices through the heart of a bulging 2-step original, packed to the rafters with explosive subby energy. Next, 'Hold On' ties together aquatic pad sweeps with heavily delayed vocal sprinkles for a euphoric thrill-ride, followed by the explosive basslines and unpredictable drum slices of 'I Feel' which pack a seriously weighty punch. Finally, 'Outa Sight' pushes us into an entirely new dimension, fueled by more beefy bass drives and some exceptional drum processing to round off this remarkable four tracker in style.

Frolocking through lush motor and windy city synths, tones, pads and basslines, Kandinski's beatier influences come from across the Atlantic, taking in UK club culture that should appeal to all kinds of heads and dancers. Get some electro and rave throwdowns via "The Mack" next to some subtle Deep Sea Dweller motifs in "Healing". "No Love" pushes toward a liquid drum and bass realm while "Zonin" delivers some stripped-backed jungle - warmed up by an undeniable Chicago house bassline. The title-track looks to positive breakbeats and electronic melodies, with "95" your floral, vibrant and colourful bonus beat.

Review: Time to recognise! Carlton Doom - a booming force of industrial-sized electro - surfaces on Lobster Theremin fresh from his last outing on Hypercolour. Turning in a hugely inspired EP of toxic muscle for Lobster Theremin, this six-track Binmen, Machines, Insects & More EP sees the artist go from quashed-futuristic fidget in "Insects In The Jelly" to epic bassline hoovers in "Binmen Of The Apocalypse". "Scatterbrain" looks to more distorted IDM and experimental sounds while "E Machine" pitches a slo-mo electro shuffle against a flurry of breakbeats, smoothed out saw waves and a familiar computer vox. "I Am The Creator" is the sludge techno track of the record with its Den Haag-like rave sensibilities that's twisted into ambient-laced jungle via an Interplanetary Criminal Rebirth remix.

An EP that boasts notions of nostalgia while keeping contemporary rave alive, "So Special" throws a slight touch of bleep into the mix with those classic UK rave keys. One Tribe.

Review: Following his release for 1? Pills Mate, Tred drops a frenetic EP for the mother label, Lobster Theremin. The title track sets the tone for I'm Not Like, with a high-octane, rolling rhythm peppered with dense filters and obscure movie samples. On "Dead Droid", Tred maintains the same tempo, but ventures down a deeper route thanks to the use of nickel-plated percussion and immersive, atmospheric textures. On "Secrets", he focuses again on a high-paced tempo, but this time weaves tranced out melodies into the skeletal rhythm. This dayglo theme continues on the Eye Q-influenced, symphonic trance of "Don't Need A Thing", before the EP concludes with the airy ambiance of "All Messed Up".

Review: D3070 may not be a household name, but on Deep Impact this artist provides a masterclass in underground electro. The release starts with the gritty "Booster"; with its sharp percussion and frazzled 808s, it's exactly the kind of raw jam that you would expect to hear on Bunker. On "Voyager 1", D3070 ventures farther into the abyss to deliver a spaced-out piece of mood music, while "Deep Impact" makes for a more considered take on the sound explored on "Booster". The release then takes an unexpected turn, with this mysterious artist dropping the deeper ERP-influenced "New Era", before "Humint", concludes this brilliant EP with a captivating, low-slung dirge.

Review: Issued on the new Lobster Theremin sub-label Higher Power, Jimmy Asquith delivers a blistering selection. The title track sets the tone for the EP, with the label boss combining wild rave stabs with a breakneck paced rhythm and glitchy percussive bursts. while "Wait A Minute" sees him combine hardcore riffs with a mixture of intense kicks and rolling breaks. Asquith integrates wild tonal sequences with militaristic percussion to create an intense piece of high-octane techno on "Escape Hatch (Running mix)", while "Bergamot (Scent mix)" is a more straightforward, heads-down banger that builds to the sound of grinding, gritty riffs.

Review: Sam Black's Slacker project, nursed to life through Lobster Theremin over the years, is granted a debut album on the label following Amen To The Lonely (2017) and Leviathan (2019). What Would I Do With Saturn sees Slacker fully export his hybrid and atmospheric take on the hardcore and jungle continuum. Wading in with the timeless ambient number "Let These Waves Wash Upon You", heavy stepping drums, searing rave synths and mad acid sequences rear their head "Nothing Is Enough" next to a more emotive "As I Fear The Ground Opening". With tumbling drums and stutter effects holding down "My Own Moon", syncopated beats stand out in "The New Face Of England" with deep, oriental and fresh as f*** jungle hitting the spot in "One Hundred Ideas". A hugely fresh LP adopting old school influences with new school techniques for a release that looks to both the past and present.

Review: Hot on the heels of Eps on FTP, Mechatronica and Dark Net, Salome delivers her debut release for Lobster Theremin. Both "Stalker" and "Doppleganger" are as dark as Russian winters, with ominous bass tones fused with austere, stepping rhythms. On "Misbehaviour", Salome conjures up an equally powerful soundscape, with pummelling drums providing the backdrop for menacing synth hooks, while "Terror" resounds to rickety broken beats. Lobster Theremin has also commissioned electro maestro Jensen Interceptor to remix "Terror" - and he doesn't disappoint, dropping recycled rave riffs over the kind of murky rhythm that one would normally associate with the Hacker.

Review: Chlar has released on a handful of labels before, and now makes his Lobster Theremin debut with the mesmerising Sacrificed Generation. "Forgot To Dream" is a hypnotic, tranced out affair that is sure to work well in techno and house sets. Meanwhile, on "We Will Bring It Back", Chlar takes inspiration from darker electronic sources to craft a peak-time hard dance track populated by vocal snippets and powered by rave stabs. "Double Dose" follows a tribal techno approach, albeit with the tough drums swathed in menacing hardcore stabs. Rounding off this intense release is the brutalist "Long Time No See", its murderous kicks and screeching samples more imposing than communist era public buildings.

Review: Nicolas Schmidt aka Narciss follows his 2020 debut on Lobster Theremin with this emotive EP. "Ludmilla" is a rolling affair that features dreamy synth melodies. While the mood is similarly upbeat on "Tall People", Schmidt ups the tempo to deliver a breezy techno groove that is sure to garner attention across the spectrum. "It Gets Easier" reveals a somewhat moodier side to this upcoming producer's sound, with his signature melodies fused with rolling break beats and an ominous low end. "Blicke" marks a return to his usual form, as epic chord builds are fused with a high-paced, rolling rhythm - a seamless blend of emotion and function.

Ecospheres - (5:21) 160 BPM
On Repeat - (5:15) 165 BPM
Review: One of Lobster Theremin's most successful new entrants is the veteran yet currently invigorated jungle producer Tim Reaper, who had a wildly successful 2020 that included a streak of superb EPs on Theremin and its sister labels. Ecospheres is no different, and that frantic jungle sound we all know and love is back with abandon. Coco Bryce, a fellow breaks maestro, steps up for an absolutely incredible remix of 'Give It 2 Me', which crashes through its phases with the grace of an elephant and the atmosphere of the 1990s, as technoid ripples, synth squeaks and sampled soul provide the backdrop to a perfect percussive performance. 'On Repeat' is the other highlight, as pad pirouettes climb on ladders of swirling melodic progressions, up to a peak of pummelling percussion. One of the greats.

Review: Marco Gomez aka False Witness makes a big splash on his debut for Lobster Theremin. The title track is a pounding, industrial affair, dystopian in mood and led by a pulsating. juggernaut bass. "Onlyfans" is also a peak-time track, with Gomez dropping steely kicks and a relentless, jacking rhythm that is tailor made to be used in the mix. "Bossa Bathrooms" has a hard dance feeling, as False Witness deploys euphoria inducing builds and a visceral, distorted bass to devastating effect. Meanwhile, on "NYNYNYNYNYNY" he channels ebm influences to deliver a ghoulish workout, as unsettling as a late night ride on the underground.

Review: Having found a debut release through the Lobster Theremin network via its SITU Records sub label in 2020, Kempston Hardwick now arrives on its parent platform through the five-track EP, Mowbray Street. Inspired by UK garage at large, expect a spectrum of house and touch of electro to grace this EP that's full of pumping drum machine percussion, jackin' rhythms and repetitive pads. With some funky, b-boy breaks entering the mix in "Provoke Iddy", the EP's title-track shines the strongest light on the artist's love for garage. With something more low-slung and Chicago sounding coming through in "Have You Stopped It" get more of a fundamental house groove in "Channel" next to the two-stepping, acid and electro-synthy beats of "Apologies to 25".

Review: La Fraicheur has been winning praise thanks to a series of releases on Infin?, and now she delivers a blistering EP for Lobster Theremin. "La Fin Du Debut" is a frazzled, stuttering affair, led by fuzzy percussion, while on "Garbage", she layers a stream of consciousness vocal over a niggling groove and ominous bass. On "Renouveau", La Fraicheur goes for an entirely different approach, with menacing, buzz-saw bass unravelling over a stepping rhythm, while the closing track, "Freezing", is the most forceful. Centred on an industrial strength rhythm and visceral low end, it sounds like La Fraicheur's own take on ebm.

Review: Originally released earlier this year on vinyl via Lobster Theremin's SITU offshoot, Orange Circles marks the debut of previously unheard British producer Memphis Glass. As debuts go, it's one of the most accomplished we've heard for a while. With Memphis Glass drifting between spacey, sub-powered deep house beauty ('Orange Circles'), angular, analogue-rich retro-futurism ('Ilford Depot'), shuffling, picturesque soundscape house ('Robots in Lust') and ultra-melodic dancefloor positivity (the fluid waves of synthesizers, dusty machine drums and floatation tank vocal samples of 'Zunk'). The EP's one remix comes from DOS, who gives 'Zunk' a warmer, hazier and ultimately even more attractive spin.

Throwing down a gauntlet of dub inspired UKG, house and R&B tracks, Amy Dabbs hits the spot with "Allure". Flirting with rave aesthetics all the more in "Second Thoughts", Dabbs keeps it instrumental, bassline heavy and close to the London broken beat scene in 'Take It" - hi-pitched vocals included - with a murky, lo-fi and computer music version of the title-track by Steel City Discs debutante Yazzus.

Review: Breaking through the surface last year with a sweet run of releases via the likes of E-Beamz, Sneaker Social Club and Lobster Theremin, the Sheffield three-piece Denham Audio return to the latter with another five-track missive: Transcendence. Taking in the slightest of bleep references atop a jungle groove and soundboy lyrics is "Run Da Ting", get a second bite out of something similar (only graced by rave) in "Retort". Its lead track "Transcendence (feat 7ip7o3)" sees a lo-fi, trippy and drum and bass sound flirt with vocals and textures that evoke imagery from the film Lost in Translation, while for something retro, housier and garage tipped its all about "Top Boy" and "Club Culture".

Review: Having released on underground labels like Lost Palms and Arts, Trudge now drops his debut on the prolific Lobster Theremin imprint. "Ice On My Neck" is a frenetic slice of rolling tribal techno, powered by a booming bass and peppered with hardcore stabs. The title track is more linear and streamlined, but again features a soaring bass at its centre, acting as the backdrop for acid lines and powerful break beats. "Bird Ghost" sees Trudge deploy cascading drum patterns to dramatic effect, accompanying epic synth builds, while "Night Shift" ups the pace, with Trudge dropping a frenetic but atmospheric drum'n'bass arrangement.

Review: Tim Reaper, fresh off the back of his nomination in the DJ Mag Best of British Awards, is back with is next EP on the mighty Lobster Theremin, and it's yet another outstanding breaksy contribution to the label's back catalogue. 'Anytime' features Devnull and graduates from wispy vocal work to fractious breaks in a manner only Tim can pull off, with drum rolls coming out the wazzoo and a rave-embedded atmosphere which is simply brilliant. The title track blends bubbling synth lines with choruses of strings that build into clattering breaks with a patter of old-school vibes, another proper underground cut from the master himself. Seminal.
