Korg Tha Groove - (7:49) 124 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
   
909ish - (5:56) 123 BPM
Review: Uncanny Valley offshoot Rat Life was launched earlier this year by Credit 00, ostensibly as a vehicle for rougher, more raw-sounding productions. Here the producer delivers his first solo EP for the imprint, dropping a pair of analogue sounding box jams that are both formidably fuzzy around the edges. Check, for example, the wild electronics, acid bleeps, old skool pianos and surging Chicago jack percussion on "Korg The Groove"; as the EP title suggests, it's a real basement anthem in waiting. "909ish" goes deeper into Credit 00's acid influences, with alien electronics and bubbling bass surfing a wave of authentic 909 drum machine percussion.

Review: Dresden label Rat Life makes the impossible to believe claim that its owner and Tschechow, the Belgian producer behind its eight release, are both grandchildren of Afrika Bambaata. Despite this assertion, there is no doubt that the Rat Life debutant knows his way around classic electronic sounds. "Controllers" is a relentless minimal track, inspired by Robert Hood and "Broken Symmetries" sees him plunge headlong into a Sean Deason chord-techno. Meanwhile, "Bretton Woods" revisits the darkest depths of Chicago house. By contrast, "Existential Framing" is a tranced out, acid-led soundscape and "Shift" sees him explore pulsing disco noir. He may be no relation of Bambaata, but he's certainly a master of reinvention.

Review: You have to admire Mono Junk's longevity. The Finnish producer released his first 12" way back in 1992, and has barely stopped putting out material since. Following excursions on Skudge White, Forbidden Planet and his own Dum Records last year, he begins 2016 by delivering four chunks of "techno melancholia" for Uncanny Valley offshoot Ratlife. Choose between the throbbing, new wave-influenced pulse of "Can't Understand", the triple-time, analogue techno-glam of "Leave This Feeling", the icy chords, gothic attitude and Visage influences of "Panic Of The Disco Fan", and the woozy, off-kilter electro/techno hybrid "State of Funk". All four tracks come blessed with the producer's own half-whispered vocals, which Uncanny Valley has described as "morbid thoughts".
