Review: Oliver Huntemann's label goes down a tougher route than usual on "Atomkraft", one of the highlights of this release by Alex Stein. The German term for nuclear power, it sees the upcoming producer drop a pounding, steely track, full of sharp percussion and dark tones. Andre Winter has been drafted in to rework "Atomkraft". He delivers a take that is more in keeping with Senso Sounds' in-house style, with an oppressive, throbbing rhythm and nocturnal bass to the fore. There is a similar approach audible on the title track, with Stein delivering the kind of menacing low end and gritty tones that Huntemann and his label have become synonymous with.

Maelstrom - (7:14) 126 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
   
Steep - (7:49) 127 BPM
Review: Maelstrom is Alex Stein's second release on Senso Sounds and shows that he is a worthy addition to the label roster. The title track combines the type of splurging, oppressive bass that label owner Oliver Huntemann is best known and loved for - but on this occasion it is accompanied by mysterious synth melodies and doubled up claps. "Steep" is similar in approach: this time the Brazilian producer makes the bass even more malevolent and pounding, and it acts as a backdrop for cavernous filters, delayed claps and an epic break down. It's an energetic, exhilarating affair - don't be surprised to hear more material from Stein on Senso.

Review: The fifth instalment of this split release series gets off to a raucous start: Alex Stein's "Gojira" features an ominous bass and the kind of nocturnal synth stabs that could be the soundtrack to curfew in a bleak dystopia. Olivier Giacomotto's "Eake" is more restrained, but it does feature what sounds like a hyena yowling at regular intervals over its blend of percussive rhythm and morose bass. It's only a brief respite however, and on Distale's "Tantal", a pounding techno groove unravels to the sound of ominous chords and a buzzing bass. Oliver Huntemann deserves props for supporting new artists through this series - and the Senso boss is sure to especially proud of the closing track, the chilling "Full Of Magic" by Murat Uncuoglu.

Argo - (6:31) 124 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
   
Norse - (7:47) 125 BPM
Review: Hamburg's Andre Winter returns with the Argo & Norse EP, which comes courtesy of his local imprint Senso Sounds, his new home after a slew of releases for Ideal Audio previously. "Argo" is a dark journey track with a massive, razor sharp bassline and brooding elements that are ideal for creating some tension and suspense on the dancefloor. Second offering "Norse" shows more restraint but will surely create some moments of drifting on the dancefloor with its infectious Life & Death style sense of melody. Moreover, that ethereal arrangement that fuels it is sure to cause a headrush or two, believe us!

Review: Hamburg's Andre Winter is back after several releases on homegrown imprint Senso Sounds, run by the inimitable Oliver Huntemann. Tech house of the most nefarious and brooding nature is on offer once again on "Cascadeur" with its adrenalised pulsations keeping pace with some razor sharp synth work which is sure to cause a headrush or two on the dancefloor and that evil monologue atop is just mental. "FleIaux" hammers the message home in style with even more doomy elements and demonic pitch-shifted vocals fighting it out with spooky arpeggios and grinding vintage synth textures: all working in perfect chaos.

Lucide - (6:45) 125 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
   
Voyeurist - (8:11) 126 BPM
Review: Andre Winter is one of the key artists on Oliver Huntemann's label, releasing material for Senso since 2014. Fans of Huntemann's ominous, bass-heavy sound may be surprised by Lucide. On the title track, the Hamburg producer lays down a pulsating, clubby groove, but also mysterious, evocative vocals in French, bee-sting bleeps and dubbed out filters. It's less upfront than some of Senso's releases, but is still deadly effective. For those who are still seeking the label's clubby sound, there is "Voyuerist" to conned with. Centred around loose drums and huge, whooshing filters, it houses the kind of brutal, functional bass that Huntemann himself is known for.

Review: Oliver Huntemann's label continues to build its reputation with this split four track EP. Alex Luhr kick starts the release in mysterious mode on "Atlante", where sound track horror synths unfold over the label's trademark bass-heavy sound. Shaded's "Sip Trip" is just as moody, with pitch-bent vocals intoning its title, while Maksim Dark also makes use of ominous vocals to accompany his menacing, sub-bass heavy arrangement, "Addendum". The only real deviation from the Senso signature style comes from label regular Andre Winter. Featuring detuned riffs and a pumping minimal techno backing, it's the most upfront arrangement in this high-quality release.

Review: Like a bitter blast of icy wind sweeping in from the North Sea, Carlo Ruetz's "Delta Charlie" will leave those who come in contact with it reeling. The title track is a grimy, murky acid affair that is powered by a pulsating bass. On "Purple Sky", haunting trance riffs play out against an undulating groove and ticking percussion, while "Unknown Fairy Tales" sees the fast-rising producer deliver a more uptempo arrangement, this time with a focus on rolling electronic disco. Closing out the release is "The Vision", where Ruetz combines the title track's acid intensity with rolling snares and a foreboding bass.

Review: Anyone who releases on Senso will be keenly aware of the fact that they are expected to fill label owner Oliver Huntemann's big (room) shoes. This doesn't seem to bother Carlo Ruetz. Having released previously on Minus, he brings a driving, stripped back approach to dance floor techno on "Hypersonic"; the title track starts off as percussive groove that veers into a throbbing build, while on "Simultan", the German producer goes somewhat deeper, delivering a rolling, dubbed out groove that resounds to a growling bass. It's an assured, effective release, and as the bleep-heavy "Rover" suggests, we're likely to hear more of Ruetz' moody sound on Senso soon.

Review: Carlo Ruetz debuts on Senso with an impressive EP. The German artist, who has previously put out material on Minus, isn't the most obvious choice for the label. Unlike the in-house sound on Oliver Huntemann's label, this release follows a different approach; "Trick" is a wild ride that features a pulsating bass, wild, tweaked acid lines and a pitched down vocal sample intoning the track's title. "Artefact" is also atypical for the Senso style, with rolling, skeletal percussion, tough snares and a spaced out undercurrent. On "Divided Universe", Ruetz moves closer to the Senso approach, with eerie synth lines unfolding over a brooding, menacing bass, but it?s only a temporary divergence and "Resoflash" sees him up the ante to drop a rolling techno workout.

Review: Oliver Huntemann's label returns with more dancefloor drama from the dark side, by some of the scene's most exciting players on Senso Sounds Level 04. French techno producer Bruno Demoeugeot aka Citizen Kain teams up with STAB Virus on "Torium" which ticks all the right boxes for a Senso track: doom laden pads, dark chords, steely rhythms and grinding arpeggios - all compressed into one big, brooding package. German producer Carlo Ruetz cuts to the chase on the aptly titled "Sky's Black" (and strips things back while he's at it) on this tunnelling and sinister epic. Finally, man of the moment Dubspeeka continues on with an impressive streak of releases on International Deejay Gigolo, Knee Deep In Sound and Get Physical recently - the cavernous, bass heavy tech house of "Aakash" further cements his status

Review: Having featured on one of Get Physical's compilations in 2013, Deutsche, together with partner Musoe team up again with vocalist Nick Maurer for more dirty house music. "Ready" is already championed by big names like Christian Smith, Marco Bailey and Stacey Pullen and it's not hard to understand why. In its original format, the tough tribal drums, combined with dubby bass and a vocalist who talks about 'rising up to take your life into your own hands', is an irresistible combination. The remixes are also of a high quality; Alex Dolby's take is mechanical and angular, an effortlessly modern iteration of trackiness, while Oliver Huntemann goes down the party techno route accompanied by insistent filters and big ghostly filters.

Review: Oliver Huntemann's Senso Sounds returns with more brooding dancefloor drama here courtesy of new signing Distale - who's appeared previously on Upon.You, Shaping Music and Lapsus in recent times. The German producer (real name Michael Knop) describes his tracks as 'raw Berlin techno' and that's evident on his new EP entitled Keep Watching. The title track is a tunnelling and strobe-lit warehouse jam, full of Hawtin style ping-ponged risers, while "Isolate" or the particularly trippy "Mezzo" go for more stripped back and dubby factory floor dynamics - much like music on popular imprint Drumcode. Following up some great releases by Carlo Ruetz and label staple Andre Winter, it sure likes like this Hamburg based label is off to a stellar start in 2018.

The Transmit Recordings boss takes no prisoners on this fierce release: from the epic and powerful peak time fury of "The Vision" with is nefarious trance arpeggios fuelled by equally dark aesthetics, to the strobed-out tunnel vision of the adrenalised "Resist" which calls to mind classic dancefloor dynamics of Dubfire a decade ago - expect these ones to be detonating dancefloors well into 2019 and beyond!

The dynamic duo team up for "Humano" where some ping pong delayed tom drums drenched in reverb create tunnelling trance induction atop of a slinky tech house groove; druggy dancefloor drama indeed! There's also some killer remixes on offer. Brazil's Victor Ruiz serves up his absolutely bangning peak time rendition while American producer Shaded's "Summer Skin Remix" certainly honours the trademark sound of both producers on this seething and slow burning dancefloor journey guaranteed to cause a headrush or two!

Review: Originally released back in 2011, these collaborative tracks between Dubfire and Oliver Huntemann now get reworked. Joseph Capriati, one of the fast rising names in the minimal techno scene, has been tasked with reworking "Terra". Listening to the Italian DJ's rolling groove, tough beats and insistent stabs, it's not hard to hear why Capriati commands such a following. The other Dubfire & Huntemann track to get remixed is "Fuego", with Julien Jeweil on remix duties. The French producer uses a similar rolling groove but uses tight Chicago claps, a squelchy bass and some wild siren riffs to create an inventive new spin on minimal house.

Meeting over social media several years ago and bonding over likeminded musical aesthetics, a strong alliance has been forged ever since. The two superstar DJs throw together some of the label's finest highlights over the last eight years on a continuous mix but don't worry; the individual tracks are provided separately for your enjoyment. We particularly enjoyed the amazing remixes of their 2008 collaboration "Diablo" which receives a full throttle makeover by Toronto's finest Carlo Lio, Gaiser's Atheists Anonymous remix of "Dios" (which takes it down that trademark m_nus style minimal route), while fellow m_nus alumni Julian Jeweil from France throws in an impressive rendition of "Fuego". Llast but not least "Agua" (feat Xenia Beliayeva) gets a remix by the legendary Carl Craig..

Review: Frankyeffe has been releasing music for a decade on labels like Riot Recordings and Kraftek, and now brings his tough but funky sound to Oliver Huntemann's imprint. The title track is a raw affair, led by tight percussion, and it sounds understated when compared to "Conditions". Underpinned by a cavernous, bruising bass and featuring a mysterious vocal deep in the mix, "Conditions" is exactly the kind of tough but effective peak-time track one would expect from Senso. "Red Alert" sees the Rome-based producer opt for an amalgamation of both styles, with a rolling rhythm underpinning out-there vocal samples and a menacing bass lurking just beneath the surface.

Expect mind bending streaks of sewer synths and fresh percussion in "Venom", while "Antidote" is minimal and bleepy - and heavy. Metallic stabs and gurgling atmospheres give "Kammerflimmern" a welcoming dirty vibe with rattling snares (no beats though) similar to that of Plastikman's seminal roller "Spastik".

It's been a great year for Huntemann's label with the release of his full length entitled Propaganda, in addition to some killer dance floor fodder by the likes of Julian Wassermann, Victor Ruiz and fellow Hamburger Andre Winter.

Filmriss - (8:10) 124 BPM
Review: There's nothing more powerful in electronic music than a great bass. From Suburban Knight's cubist tones to the desolate subs of No U-Turn, the low end has the potential to be a producer's deadliest weapon. It certainly seems to be the case for German artist Oliver Huntemann. While he rose to prominence during the noise-fixated electro house sound, his bass sounds are never messy and fuzzy, favouring instead a brutal, streamlined approach. Both "Schwarzlicht" and "Filmriss" contain little more than oppressive and sleek basslines. Granted, they are anchored in metallic rhythms and cold beats, but it's Huntemann's bleak low end that prevails on both occasions.

Review: The Senso Sounds series showcases emerging techno talent, and the sixth instalment casts its gaze across Europe for inspiration. Talent on the continent is not lacking: Amsterdam DJ Lilly Palmer kick starts the split EP with the pulverising bass and driving rhythm of "Listen To Me", while a similar style comes in the shape of Carbon's rave-soaked banger, "Softly Twisted". By contrast, Heerhorst's "Prisma" is a widescreen affair, the German producer's swirling synths underpinned by an ominous groove. Rounding off another volume of this series is Timid Boy from France, whose "Oniris" is an evocative slice of tranced out club techno.

Saturn - (6:53) 125 BPM
Review: Maksim Dark is the latest artist to appear on Oliver Huntemann's label. Dark has previously put out a brace of albums and has worked for Sci & Tec, and his sound fits right in on Senso. "Dizziness" kick-starts the release in formidable form, with a pounding, menacing bass fused with steely, unflinching percussion. "Revelation" sees Maksim follow a similar path; revolving around a powerful, throbbing low-end, the Russian producer adds in a ponderous male vocal sample and bursts of tight percussion. Closing track "Saturn" is not as pacey, but once again, it's all about the bass as rumbling tones are mixed with wild frequency shifts.

Review: More harbour city sorrow from Hamburg's Senso Sounds, this time coming at you from Maksim Dark - and with a name like that why wouldn't he! The Berlin-based Russian has previously released on equally brooding techno imprints such as Sci+Tec, Octopus Recordings and Natura Viva, and returns to Oliver Huntemann's label to follow up to 2018's exceptional Movement EP. Continuing on with the same theme, Kinetics is a three track EP with every bit as much energy and attitude. From the sci-fi futurism of the moody title track, to the doom-laden aesthetics of "Chainsaw" which features the same penchant for razor sharp bass and spacey blips and blurps, and ending with the seething minimal techno workout "Believer".

Trickle Down - (6:43) 125 BPM
Review: Here's an interesting meeting of creative minds: Joran van Pol from the Netherlands runs the FADE label and has teamed up with Russian artist Maksim Dark for a joint release on Oliver Huntemann's label. As befits an EP on Senso, "Thrill" is based on a menacing bass that squelches and throbs seductively, while insistent percussion niggles away in the background. There's a similar aesthetic at play on "Trickle Down"; once again, ominous bass tones prevail, but on this occasion, they are fused with a ponderous vocal sample and white noise effects to create an insistent and darkly euphoric slice of techno noir.

Review: Propaganda is Oliver Huntemann's fifth studio album, and sees him expand his sound and range over the course of 12 tracks, without losing his signature style. "Taktik" and "Poltergeist" see the German producer flirt with slower tempos, but the bass is so menacing on the latter track that its intensity is unstoppable. The pace picks up on the insane filtered builds and rolling snares of "Egoist", while recent single "Rotlicht" is classic Huntemann, all spiralling foghorns, insistent percussion and the darkest sub-bass this side of late-90s tech-step. Propaganda does contain some real surprises - like the down tempo sound scapes of "Anonym" - and the eerie electro of "Momentum", but its unifying theme are bass lines that are uniquely malevolent and multi-layered.

Rotlicht (Raxon remix) - (7:06) 124 BPM
Review: Issued on his own Senso Sounds label, Rotlicht is a taster single for Oliver Huntemann's new album, Propaganda. It suggests that his fifth long player could be the German's best yet. Populated by shrieking sirens, morose, tone-shifting stabs and some of the most oppressive bass notes that electronic music can offer, the title track swaggers in a particularly menacing fashion. There is also a less intense interpretation from Raxon. Centring on a woozy, out there riff and a loose rhythm, it still contains a punch, albeit in a more tripped out manner. If you are looking for maximum impact though, stick with Huntemann's bruising original.

Poltergeist (Maksim Dark remix) - (6:43) 125 BPM
Review: Oliver Huntemann is one of the few electronic music artists with a unique sound. It's audible on his latest release, Poltergeist. On the title track, an oppressive bass swaggers and blusters its way over a rickety rhythm that breaks down before correcting itself. It almost feels as if the German producer's subs are overpowering the backing track, causing it to fracture. Russian producer Maksim Dark sounds like he was heavily influenced by Huntemann, but that doesn't stop him from delivering his own, distinct take on "Poltergeist". The rhythm is more linear and less complex, but again it's all about the bass that throbs and pounds relentlessly.

Schwefel - (8:40) 124 BPM
Review: Pioneer of the Bremen sound and mid noughties minimal techno legend is back. And what better moment than now given his trademark dark journey sound has come full circle, with producers like Mind Against reviving his and close associate Stephan Bodzin's unmistakeable aesthetic. First track "Pech" features dark and sinister atmospherics and ping pong delays, all supporting a massive wonky bassline that will prove to be a one way ticket towards dancefloor hysteria. "Scwefel" features an absolutely massive drop and white noise breakdown that soon gives way to a chugging and tunnelling groove, burning away slowly beneath a dreamy melody and razor sharp bassline. Massive!

Review: We can always count on Senso Sounds for some of that moody peak time techno, and label chief Oliver Huntemann's Propaganda Remixes will sure give you that fix. Originally released back in late 2017, the album still really packs a punch - and featured are these remixes by scene heroes like Fur Coat and Olivier Giacomotto - but it's the ones by label staples that are optimised for maximum dancefloor impact. From the tension and suspense of Andre Winter's brooding rendition of "Momentum" or Shaded's tunnelling and strobed-out Dark Stab remix of "Malaria" to Berlin veteran Marco Resmann's woozy and disorienting take on "Doppelgonger". Finally, the always reliable Distale's sustained and minimal re-execution of "Trick 17" takes it all the way to the edge. This collection of sonic weapons is surefire artillery for serious DJ use.
