Review: Chrononautz came through with an unexpected load of bombshells for his debut on The Quietus Phographic Corporation earlier this year, so we're glad to see that he's landed on Photonz's excellent One Eyed Jack stable. His wavey, mutated form of dance music is just perfect for the label, and in fact, he's gone even madder with this new EP. "Waveguide" could be labelled as 'house', but it's a million miles away from the classic 4/4 structure due to its broken, fast-moving shuffle of percussion, and 'Acid Empathy" is just as mad, if not more. We're also particularly fond of "Cold Curve" for its DIY approach, one that reminds us of early Detroit productions.

Review: Photonz' One Eyed Jacks label have been receiving some 'interesting' feedback on this new ear-bleeder from Lisbon's reigning king of 'noise-dance', Cotrim. Described by Creme boss DJ TLR as being 'pleasantly retarded', "Danca" is an abstract electro-throb; squeal and purr in equal measure. Elsewhere the EP is like an alien laser attack from hell, with our favourite blasts including the hard sci-fi jack of "Danc", the haunted Chicago voodoo-beat of "Dan" and the psychologically deranged warped gabba of "Da".

Review: Fernando Silva's debut for One Eyed Jacks gets a series of different treatments (hence the clever title). Photonz rolls out a mid-paced, jacking take on "The Forest", its deep chords flowing over a bleepy groove. Jokers Of The Scene turn in a more textured take, with layers of sound gradually unfolding to reveal bleepy acid tones. The Sabre reshape is more clubby, with chants and bird song set to tumbling drums, while the IVVVO interpretation features hissing percussion and dreamy chords. The Violet version is similar, but with owls twit-wooing and heavy claps prevailing, while the most dance floor-based version comes at the end, with Worker Parasite delivering a slamming take.

Review: The One Eyed Jacks label remains the go to primer for current Portuguese artists making waves, welcoming Portimao duo Roundhouse Kick into the fold with Arm1x, their debut release backed with a double dose of Auntie Flo remixes! Formed of an analogue gear hoarding couple, Roundhouse Kick live up to their name on both the title track and accompaniment "Industrial Dream" characterised by some vicious, at times jagged usage of drum machines. Crucially however, they are also augmented by an enviable dose of emotive melody and compositional understanding, with the latter track a wonderfully vivid spiral of upward analogue motion. Auntie Flo seems a perfect fit for the One Eyed Jacks label and his remix and dub version lend some trademark Hi-Life to "Arm1x".

Review: Portuguese duo Photonz curate this excellent Dead Cities compilation - whose title is inspired by the Future Sound of London album of the same name - which is the most articulate expression yet of their love of warped electronic music. Limiting the selection to a group of artists who are close, local Portuguese talent is prominent and due to this tightly-knit approach, there is a cohesive sound on the compilation, but it could never be called smooth or polished. Recent Opal Tapes signee IVVVO starts the compilation with the reflective bleeps of "Burn", but it's only a slight reprieve: straight afterwards, Photonz weigh in with the stripped back rhythm of "Veil of Kali". Stopping, starting, breaking down and then quickly resuming its foray into the depths of shredded metal screeches, it paves the way for the evil, gurgling acid of Roundhouse Kick & Theodore Allen's "Invocation 1" and Infestus' "Hook'n'Loop", where a dark rave riff implodes over shuffling 808s. As the compilation progresses, the sound and approach gets more and more intense, notably the Pal+ and Voiron contributions

Review: Voiron's fourth release this year is issued on Photonz' One Eyed Jacks label. It feels like the producer has decided to plunder the past as much as possible. "Hardchore" is a metallic stepper that features breezy trance melodies, while the title track sees Voiron go back to the early '90s warehouse sound, as subsonic, bleepy bass unfolds over tough breakbeats. "Harlem Juno Shake" is led by crashing cymbals and wild acid bursts. This connection to the '90s continues on the remixes; the Violet take on "Harlem Juno Shake" is more evocative and led by lithe breaks, while Pal+ version of "RN12 91" adds shaking percussion and ecstatic 'oohs and ahs' to the arrangement.
