Review: The second release on Spandau20 is a family affair. Fadi Mohem, who has previously released on Klockworks, gets down to business with the steely, percussive techno of "Nine". Shifting gears and changing tact, Balas delivers the broken beats, clanging hats and jungliest bass of "Desdemona", while Fjaak return to straighter techno thanks to the big-room chord stabs and pounding kicks of "Transmission", which has echoes of Dave Clarke's Red series. The sound shifts once again for Claus Schoning's "Wizard". In stark contrast to what went before it, it's an abstract, break beat track full of otherworldly squelches and atmospheric textures.

Pull It Up (Steffi mix) - (5:23) 144 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
Review: The latest release on Spandau20 sees label owners Fjaak welcome Elli Acula to the fold. "To The Peak", the act's collaboration with the newcomer, is a frenetic electro roller, featuring hushed vocals and dramatic stabs. On "Pull It Up", Fjaak fly solo to deliver another electro bomb - this time featuring robust 808s and a tongue in cheek vocal sample. Steffi of Panorama Bar fame flexes her creative muscles on two remixes; the reworked version of "Peak.." is a high-paced jacker, while her interoperation of "Pull It Up" is rooted in a powerful bass and features an unforgettable, stuttering vocal sample sequence.

Review: Opening Spandau20's account for '21 is this swift "To The Peak" single by Berlin's sharpened rave duo FJAAK. Taking in the scrambled vocals of Elli Acula amidst a barrage of slamming drums, searing strings and tunnelling bassline, Steffi keeps up with the original's stuttered rave groove, turning in a dirty, uptempo and dubbed out future-retro remake.

FJAAK - "Rough & Ready" - (5:42) 134 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
Review: The third release on Spandau 20 is a split affair, with the fledgling label drawing once again on its core artists. Claus Sch?ning, who featured on the German imprint's second release, delivers the chord-heavy, high-paced "Uber Sonic". Realised against the backdrop of a steely rhythm, it recalls vintage Force Inc techno from the 90s. Upping the intensity levels are Fjaak, with the Berlin duo dropping the howling analogue riffs and pounding rhythm of "Rough & Ready". It's not all visceral thrills however, and Rifts puts atmospheric synths on the agenda with the Vince Watson-style deep dance floor techno of "Sharp Lank".
