Review: With releases on Relief, Super Rhythm Trax and Hardgroove to their credit, the BLACK GIRL/WHITE GIRL duo have already carved out a name with their peak-time techno. This release for Truncate will ensure that this profile continues to grow. "Explosure" get the EP off to a frenetic start, with rolling tribal drums and heavy kicks calling to mind the loop techno sound of innovators like Ben Sims. "Delusional Neurons" continues in a similar vein, with the rolling rhythms providing the backdrop for vocal snippets and insistent tones. "Primal Soul" sees the duo change direction. The rhythm is swung and more electronic, but combined with acid tweaks, the dance floor impact remains the same.

Bang Jam - (4:57) 137 BPM
Jam 3 - (6:41) 135 BPM Hot
Review: The Southern aka Carmine Portarulo returns to Truncate with another hard-edged club techno release. Taking inspiration from the loop techno sound of the late 90s/early 00s throughout, he adds his own personality to each track. On "Shine On" and "Tribal Jam", this takes the form of peppering the rolling grooves with ticking percussion and vocal snippets. Portarulo opts for a more stripped back approach on "Bang Jam", where analogue yelps and doubled-up claps prevail. Maintaining the looped sound on "Jam 3", insistent chord stabs and vocal samples mean that when it comes to dance floor impact, Shine On is sure to hit the target.

Pleur - (6:35) 136 BPM
Review: Jasper de Vries aka JSPR drops a hard-hitting EP on Truncate. Both the title track and "Final Judgement" are powered by lead weight kicks and utilitarian percussion, with one-note bleeps and noisy tones calling to mind vintage Robert Hood. "Blockhat" features a rolling groove and subtle vocal snatches. It also boasts piledriving claps and hi-hats, with these percussive elements ensuring it packs a steely dance floor punch. "Thumb Cutter" moves into a visceral realm, with discordant bell chimes and filtered drops augmenting the sense of drama that the Dutch producer brings to his productions. "Pleur" is more streamlined, its dense tribal drums and building, whooshing filters deployed to devastating effect.

Breaking Up Inside - (6:34) 143 BPM
Review: Following last year's Hard Sync release, Kai Van Dongen returns to Truncate with a hard-edged minimal EP. The jerking, angular rhythm and insistent, tonal shifts of "M12 Bleep" get Unpredictable off to an intense, high-paced start. There's no let up on the title track either, as Van Dongen drops visceral riffs and relentless thunder-claps. On "Analog 9", he opts for a more experimental approach; with its filtered, relentless tones unravelling over a driving rhythm, it sounds like an update of classic Synewave. He reserves a real surprise till the end though, and the vocal-tinged electro of "Breaking Up Inside" shows he is unafraid to take risks.

Blue Roses - (5:33) 140 BPM
Molecularized - (5:36) 140 BPM
Outlaw - (5:31) 140 BPM
Review: Truncate has recruited a likeminded producer for his label's latest release, with Klint delivering a hard-hitting four-tracker. What's truly impressive about Apache is the fact that each arrangement carries with it a weight and maturity, even though the author is a newcomer. The title track bristles with the intensity of Rob Hood minimalism, while on "Blue Roses", repetitive vocal samples are wrapped into a looped, dense groove. "Molecularized" sees this emerging French producer drop the kind of leaden kicks and intense percussive builds that are primed for play in big rooms, while on "Outlaw" Klint goes deeper, delivering an insistent, chord-heavy workout.

Review: With releases already notched up on labels like Sci & Tec, Intec and Suara, Carlo Lio now drops a killer EP for Truncate. The title track is a heads-down affair, featuring a hypnotic vocal sample looped over a jacking rhythm and lead-weight kicks. The dub version ventures in a similar direction, albeit without the vocal. On "Freaky Bitches", Lio wears his love of ghetto techno openly, as a primal groove and insistent hi hats make for a relentless, stomping track. In contrast, "The Question" sees the Canadian producer drop a repetitive, stab-heavy workout that is powered by tough kicks and resounds to incessant vocals.

Hood Thang - (6:04) 135 BPM Hot
Out Of Love - (5:48) 135 BPM
Need To Jack - (5:20) 150 BPM
Review: Following on from last year's Vent release on Truncate, Hertz Collision teams up with Gene Richards Jr for his next EP. On "Hood Thang", the pair further the label's mandate to deliver tracky dance floor techno. The title track is built on lead weight kicks, which provide the backdrop for vocal snatches and looped chord stabs. "Out Of Love" is deeper, with pair deploying a combination of dubbed out drums and diva-esque vocal samples to great effect. They shift focus for "Need to Jack": using ponderous vocals that call to mind Chicago house, they layer it over a hyperactive, busy rhythm and dense percussion.

Raw Mistake - (5:12) 136 BPM
Wave Trax - (5:40) 136 BPM
Edge - (5:43) 136 BPM Hot
Review: The Southern has released on labels like Tronic and KD Raw, and now he makes his debut for Truncate's self-titled imprint. As its title suggests, Raw Mistake sees this emerging producer explore electronic music's analogue style. The title track is a stripped back jacker featuring repetitive tones and firing percussion, while on "Wave Trax", he ups the tempo to deliver a firing rhythm track that's full of insistent chord stabs. "Edge" is based on a similar approach, but sees The Southern delve deeper into peak time techno, featuring an intoxicating combination of ominous synth riffs and steely, niggling hi hats.

Review: Truncate has attracted an impressive remix line-up for this fifth remix instalment, including a contribution from Kai Van Dongen, the winner of a remix contest. First up is Josh Wink with a bleep-laden minimal version of "Concentrate", which true to form, contains pitch bent, chopped up vocals and a cacophony of bleeps. For his take on "Reflex". Radio Slave also favours a 'less is more' approach, but on this occasion, he underpins shifting tones and chord stabs with tough tribal beats. Meanwhile, Lauren Flax's take on "Culture" is an acid-soaked jacker, while Van Dongen's take on "Missing" is a building, chord-heavy affair, full of dramatic twists.

Review: For the twentieth release on his label, Truncate drops a searing minimal track. "Repeat", with its hollowed out, rolling drums and niggling, white noise percussion, is a ferocious peak-time affair that builds and builds around its noisy central riff. Truncate has invited Luis Flores to remix the track, and the Mexican artist does a fine job; taking the sound deeper while dropping insistent percussion, he delivers a mesmerising reshape. The release also contains "El Sonido", another original production from Truncate; focused on a looped vocal sample, its discordant riffs and tight claps ensure that it will receive maximum support.

Review: It sounds like David Flores aka Truncate has delved deep to come up with the tracks for his latest EP. "WRKTRX 2", which kick-starts the release, revolves around the kind of dramatic organ riff that would have been common in the darker recesses of 90s New York house. Meanwhile, "WRKTRX Rhythm 1", with its stripped back rhythm and raw percussive layers, draws inspiration from Dan Bell and even Richie Hawtin side projects like Basement Trax. On "WRKTRX 3", the US producer mines classic Beltram and even Dave Angel for a high-impact, vocal-sampling techno track, while he taps Jimmy Edgar to deliver a Detroit techno oriented take on "3", the version powered by a Juan Atkins-style bass and tight percussive volleys.

Mira Mar (V2) - (5:42) 130 BPM Hot
Review: The 15th release on techno titan Truncate's eponymous label contains three alternative versions of previously released gems. First up you'll find a vocal-free version of angular and metallic 2011 throb-job "Focus", where relentless cymbals and two-note loops ride a pounding kick-drum pattern. Next, he unloads a bubbling, acid-fired "V2" take on 2012 jack-track "Modify" - all layered percussion, razor-sharp electronics and wayward TB-303 lines - before dedicated all of side B to a tasty alternate riff on "Mira Mar". The original was one of his deepest and dreamiest techno tracks, so it's nice to see that he's retained the warm chords and tumbling melodies amongst the delay-laden beats and gentle acid lines.

Review: West coast techno hero and Droid Behavior affiliate David Flores aka Truncate is back on his eponymous imprint, its 13th release presented here. "Wave 1" is a restrained yet suspenseful journey that's full of warm dubby elements, a dreamy bell melody and emotive strings. This one is great to lead into or out of the pre-peak time phase to make a great transition. By contrast, the offering on track 2 entitled "Hardware Jam 4" is much more intense and just like the name suggests, you can feel the raw energy of this clearly improvised track which retains all the energy and spontaneity of the occasion. A raw, stripped and powerful track on here.

Review: David Flores delivers another Truncate bullet, and as per usual, these three cuts are bundle of techno jerkers for the Berghainian dweller. Title track "Another One" is a clap-heavy head noodle with a distinctly dubby air, "Model 1" is bleepy and all guns blazing thanks to its militant groove, while "Room Mode" is the weirder of the bunch, where a warped Detroit-style bassline dominates Truncate's familiar minimalistic percussion style. Certified bombshells for the dancefloor.

Review: For the west coast techno scene of America, Developer and Truncate are a one stop shop for club techno. Where Developer's production goes large, Truncate's focus is primitive techno minimalism - for David Flores, his peak time productions come packaged as Audio Injection. Truncate fans will notice the similarities of "Control V1" to "Concentrate" (recently commissioned for Pangaea's fabric live 73) from 2011. Truncate manages to strip back "Control V2" even more, which puts greater emphasis on the ketamine drugged computer vocal, while "Reflex V1" and "Reflex V2" are also incarnations of themselves; one minimal, the other more so.
