Review: Following a fine outing on Local Talk late last year, sample-digging beat-maker turned deep house don Cuthead returns to home city imprint Uncanny Valley. Can't You See sits somewhere between an expansive EP and a perfectly formed mini-album, offering up an octet of cuts that neatly summarizes his hybrid approach to music-making. That means a solid mixture of dusty, warm and rolling deep house shufflers (see the vibraphone-sporting "Mount Platti", Andres style jazziness of "Sweet" and rock solid "Can't You See") and blazed hip-hop instrumentals ("Kimono", "Tranquility Base", "Too Dark To See Tomorrow"), with the odd surprise thrown in (bass music-influenced opener "Lunar Lander" and the punk-funk-influenced 130BPM stomp of "Schlagzeug Fallt Die Treppe Runter").

Review: Confirmed label-hopper Iron Curtis last popped up on Uncanny Valley in 2015, contributing a fine cut to the Dresden imprint's fifth anniversary compilation. Here he finally unleashes his first EP for the imprint, serving up a predictably impressive four-track missive. He begins with the Larry Heard style deep, jacking grooves and ethereal synthesizer melodies of "Sweet Romancer", before upping the intensity of the beats on the drowsy pump of "Nixdorf Danse". Those looking for life-affirming release should check the rush-inducing dancefloor bliss of "Triroom", while closer "Take Me Home" is an altogether woozier, dreamier and more Balearic affair, with jangling guitars and cut-up vocal samples sashaying from the speakers.

Review: Leipzig based producer Robert Panthera Krause follows up some great releases in 2017 on labels such as Riotvan, Step and Lobster Theremin with his second outing on local imprint Uncanny Valley - which follows up his well received Umami EP in 2016. All My Circuits Part I features four sunny, dusty and irresistable excursions into the deep. Starting out with the sun-kissed and uplifting jam "Heppy" featuring some flamenco- ish guitars, dusty broken rhythms and lush hypnotic pads - this one ticks all the right boxes. Next up "Stomping Ground" goes for a more straight-up lo-fi deep house vibe, where vintage drum computers go face to face with a chunky acidic bassline and jacking vocals on this right party starter. Elsewhere, "Le Phoque" saves the best for last on this pumping deep house number featuring a hypnotic marimba melody and a stomping swing fuelled beat.

Review: For the first time in 2017, Martin Enke has decided to don the now familiar Lake People alias. Having built his reputation via a series of releases on Permanent Vacation - including 2015's solid full-length, Purposely Uncertain Field - Break The Pattern sees him transfer to Uncanny Valley. As you'd expect, there's much to enjoy throughout, from the rising and falling synths, shuffling drum machine beats and undulating acid lines of "September Futuristic", to the broken New Jersey house/Chicago acid fusion of "Chords In Chorus" and deep space shuffle of "Pull Off". Arguably best of all, though, is opener "Level Msk", a loose but floor-friendly workout full of restless organ riffs and early Orbital electronics.

Played by: Honey Soundsystem
Review: Translated into English, the title of this album is 'this is how it is in the pine forest'. Maybe Uncanny Valley artist CVBox is referring to his physical surroundings in rural Germany, or he could be describing the recording process behind his debut album. If we assume he means the latter, then the title is a smart if somewhat obtuse explanation. Tracks like "Oberla 8" and "707 Dubbing" start with powerful, dub bass before introducing a hail of acid bleeps, while on "Iv Box", there are no beats, but a frosty ambient cloak lifts to reveal hypnosis-inducing electronic tones. "CV Cat" sees the German producer move towards the detuned trance of Mathew Jonson, but even here the approach is like being in the middle of a pine forest - covered from floor to sky by layer upon layer of multi-coloured textures.

Review: Dresden native Jacob Korn has clearly decided that quality is preferable to quantity. Since 2014, he's really cut back on the number of EPs he's put out, with this simply titled four-tracker being his first release of any description for 18 months. Predictably, he barely puts a foot wrong, moving from the chunky grooves, alien melodies, dusty musical touches and pulsing loops of "The Happening", to the low-slung, disco-flecked mid-tempo deep house bump of "Thru The Eye". Along the way, pay close attention to the choppy, post-Soundstream edit-house swing of "Holiday", and the soaring, near-symphonic disco-house heaviness of "Goodbye", which is arguably the EP's most bombastic moment.

Review: With tongue firmly in cheek, Dresden's Robert "Cuthead" Arnold delivers his fifth album, Return Of The Sample Jesus. Like his other full-length outings for hometown label Uncanny Valley, the set joins the dots between his hip-hop beat-making past - he's long been known as a wizard with an MPC - and the hazy, swinging, off-kilter deep house sound he's been exploring over recent years. Able to spot killer samples and work them into fine tracks, Arnold is equally as adept to dropping Dilla-ish beat-scapes, Madlib style jazz workouts, and Moodymann inspired 4/4 grooves. Throw in a sprinkling of smoother, dreamier, bass-heavy cuts, and you've got an entertaining and absorbing LP.

Review: The title of Alexander 'Credit 00' Dorn's latest release does him something of a disservice. While there is no doubt that the Uncanny Valley boss knows how to craft intoxicating rhythms, there is a lot more to his capabilities. "TRM" sees snappy drums and a tracky rhythm underpin swooning deep house synths, while on "Curse of the Medusa", an unnamed woman claims 'I gave you my heart' over hypnotic 90s techno filters. "Voodoo Soup", with its insistent kettle drums and dubbed out percussion, pushes the release towards the tool-style functionality, but as the bleep-heavy "Snake Charmer" demonstrates, it is clear that there is far more to this German producer than linear dance floor rhythms.

Review: Over the past 12 months, Stefan "Chinaski" Haag has really hit his stride. First, there was a superb EP of rich, melodious, synthesizer-heavy compositions for Live At Robert Johnson, followed by a fine contribution to Uncanny Valley's fifth anniversary releases. Here he returns to the latter label with arguably his strongest collection to date. As usual, he fuses a variety of vintage influences - most obviously Italo-disco, early Chicago house, dreamy instrumental synth-pop and Detroit techno - to deliver hypnotic, life-affirming pieces with bristle with melodious intent. Highlights are plentiful, from the head-in-the-clouds bliss of pulsating opener "Disaster", and the John Carpenter creepiness of "Lifetime", to the Behaviour-era Pet Shop Boys melancholy of "Street" and "Never Look Back".

Review: It's some two years since Panthera Krause impressed with fine releases on Riotvan and Lobster Theremin. This time round, he's been tempted out of the wilderness by Dresden house misfits Uncanny Valley. In order to fit in with the label's anything-goes approach, the Leipzig-based producer has delivered a quartet of tracks that eccentrically blend a whirlwind of contrasting influences. There's the wonky, ultra-deep jazz-house drowsiness of "The Space Between Us", the punk-funk/dub disco/African thrills of "Howling For July", and the sweaty tech-jazz goes breakbeat madness of the superb "Z-Cuts". As for opener "Umami", it's a loose, rolling and deliciously positive slab of sublime deep house weirdness that benefits greatly for some heavy low-end pressure.

Review: Sweden's Joel Alter went solo from studio partner Henrik Jonsson and released the brilliant album entitled "Heart" earlier in 2015 and it now gets the remix treatment. Fellow Swede Jesper Dahlback aka The Persuader gives "22 Hours" a deep and tripping remix, but still keeps Luvinsky Atche's powerful vocals intact. More of Alter's homeboys represent, with Genius Of Time's Dorisburg delivering a dark and acidic remix of "Everlasting". An original version from the album appears; "Mecca" is a techno epic reminiscent of Carl Craig with its dark dramatic melody supported by thumping tom drums and suspenseful strings.

Review: When it came to celebrating their first five years, Uncanny Valley decided to do things differently. So, alongside a retrospective (Five Years On Parole - What Happened), they've delivered an EP of previously unheard material from the archives (Five Years On Parole - Gems From The Vaults), and this selection of brand new cuts. There's naturally much to enjoy, with Chinaski and Panthera Krause both delivering wonderfully deep and dreamy analogue house workouts. There's something particularly impressive about Derive's krautrock, Kraftwerk and proto-techno inspired contribution - think modular synthesizers and pulsing drum machine rhythms - while Iron Curtis' "En Suite" is a clandestine acid jacker build around ragged 303 lines, metronomic percussion and trippy synthesizer motifs.

Review: Uncanny Valley's split, multi-artist EPs are usually amongst their strongest releases, and Give N Take is no exception. Put together by Cuthead, it features tracks from three of his favourite producers, plus two of his own. Max Graef kicks things off with the sleepy deep house jazz of "Tittenkuschler", while Parisian S3A impresses with the rising disco samples, sturdy grooves and minor key flourishes of "Theuz Hamtaak". Moony Me's contribution, the flashing Chicago bass, woozy chords and choppy disco samples of "Magergarten", is also rather good. As for Cuthead's contributions, they're predictably strong, with the samba-goes-boompty shuffle of "Braziliance" just edging out the deep-off-kilter downtempo MPC jam "Oef Oef" in the "best track" stakes.

Review: CVBox teams up with likeminded producer Micha Freier for a gorgeously seductive deep house release. Favouring an introspective sound, the duo conjure up the kind of fantastically melodic, intricate tracks that are usually the preserve of Detroit producers like Patrice Scott or Keith Worthy. "Blinking Lights" sets the tone wonderfully with its swirling chords and understated drums, while "Bad Gate Way" is underscored with a pulsing electronic bass. It's the most dance floor-focused moment on the release and soon enough, the pair are navigating their way back to more refined sounds courtesy of the subtle percussive ticks of "Playwatch" and the immersive icy ambience of "XOXO".

Review: Jacob Stoy's 2012 debut, Redenswart, marked him out as a producer to watch - a maker of atmospheric, off-kilter deep house music that eschewed genre staples in favour of far more intriguing and left-of-centre sounds. This belated follow-up is similarly impressive, delivering six varied cuts to move the head and the feet. There's much to admire, from the woozy synths, cute melodies and soft focus beats of "HIM" and wonky, lo-fi electronica of "HHM", to the intoxicated, Stereolab-goes-deep house swing of "CCFM" and decidedly creepy "OGM". The latter is impressively melancholic, with long, bittersweet chords and relentless cymbals riding rolling kick-drums and winding electronics.

Review: Recently signed up to the Uncanny Valley roster with the Jardin Du Midi EP, Dresden-based Scherbe fits right in with the skew-whiff styles of that curious corner of German house music, and so it continues unabated with this latest offering. "Poison Hillz" is a twitchy construction full of clanking found-sound percussion and errant synth lines, while "Long Time No Sea" hops and skips its way around a lean beat that opens up to allow wistful soul licks in without dropping the weird stick. "Mosquito Beach" does a fine job of working repetitive mantras into a loose-fit whole, and then "Specimen" rounds things off with a neat juxtaposition of grainy sample matter and slender rhythmic refinement.

Review: There's something pleasingly calming about this EP from Philpot regular turned Uncanny Valley contributor Sebastian Lohse. While the EP's most impressive moment is arguably the sparse but deliciously melodic "Malstroem" - think starburst electronics, woozy chords and tactile analogue grooves - for the most part Atlantic Ocean is a warm and immersive affair. There's something suitably glassy-eyed about the near Balearic chords and breezy melodies of "Atlantic Ocean Road", while "FM For Life" pairs jaunty, Detroit-influenced bass and rolling rhythms with picturesque melodies. As for the guitar-flecked "Trocadero", you'd be hard-pressed to find a more beautiful deep house track this year.

Review: Uncanny Valley's resident beatsmith Cuthead delves even further into his love of low slung grooves with this fulsome album of soulful vignettes that make the perfect hip hop paced partner to the more housey output known on the label. It's not all slow-mo business as "Maputo Jam" attests with its peppy chops and swinging New Jersey funk, and in terms of sample-rich house loaded with imagination it's hard to picture anything sounding quite as heartfelt and captivating as this, but in the slower musings Cuthead shows off his breadth as a producer and comes up smelling of particularly addictive roses. Try listening to the title track and not feeling an immense sense of satisfaction, romance and groove all in one.

Review: After debuting on Jacob Korn's Uncanny Valley last year, CVBox returns to the label with an impressive third EP. The title track bleeps like a sluggish Sandwell District track lost in reverberating drone of Prologue-like ambience, while the dubby "Echo Place" lightens in mood thanks to spritzy synths and rolling drums and percussion. "Leo On LFO" sees CVBox turn to electro for inspiration, while "Remind 20:3" features new name Micha Freier for a placid stroll through a deep house and an atmospheric field of chiming keys and lush synth pads.

Review: Sneaker makes his debut on Uncanny Valley, with an EP supposedly inspired by a hot, humid stay in Indonesia. There's certainly something decidedly sweaty and tropical about the intensely percussive "White Glow" (featuring guests Al Goz and Helena, whose stylish vocal perfectly fits the cacophonous, guitar-ridden groove), while "Misty Mirror" sounds like the product of a combination of tropical fever, and too many nights spent listening to eyeliner-wearing new wave and post punk records. The dubby, wide-eyed and decidedly out-there "Sumatra Rain" - a kind of alt-rock house track, with added post-punk attitude -is similarly inclined, while "Run To You" (a bizarre but brilliant Brian Adams cover) is deeper, but no less fuzzy. Interesting stuff, all told.

Review: On this latest transmission from the vale of Dresden, the Uncanny crew have sewn together another four solid cuts of convention-bucking house music to suit more adventurous ears. Brodka comes correct with a heartfelt turn that isn't afraid to embrace vocals within a stripped construction, while Sandrow M's remix of Alex Ketzer opts for a darker tone weighed down by growling bass before turning out some Joy O-style vocal mangling. Cuthead meanwhile is not as concerned with refined production, instead delivering a rugged acid melter that blossoms into a thoroughly jazzed-out affair. Jacob Stoy has his own curious take to bring to the table, working around minimal tones and a simple beat and fleshing the track out with discordant keys that have their own modal message to intone.

Review: Redenswart shows relative newcomer Jacob Stoy to be a producer with a keen ear for atmosphere, an eye for detail and a head full of ideas. The title track sets the tone, offering a powerfully melancholic stroll through deep dub house territory. There are twinkling melodies, too, but these play second fiddle to the impeccably atmospheric groove. "Hauswart" is a beautiful exercise in modern day ambience, while "Start" wisely puts a little more emphasis on positive chords and snappy drum machine beats. Best of all, though, is "Gegenwart", a wide-eyed fusion of wonky downtempo house, P-funk sassiness and fluid electronica. Very impressive, all told.

Review: The most lauded artist from the Dresden collective Uncanny Valley, Jacob Korn has earned himself a widespread reputation for his satisfyingly detailed and musically complex approach to deep house. His eagerly awaited debut album You & Me sees the producer take a unique approach, collaborating with a different artist on each track, and if anything, the effect of his fine musicianship is only enhanced, from the sublime Balearic tones of opener "The Place", through the dubby organs and crisp percussion of "Friction", the woozy rhodes melody of "The Drifter". As well as the deeper cuts, Korn isn't averse to some good time party jams - see the San Soda collaboration "Punta Del Este" with its bumping piano riff and the choppy, disco-leaning Cuthead collaboration "Makin' Love" for proof of that. Quite possibly the house album of the year.

Review: There's little information to be found about German producer CVBox, other than that this is his first single for Dresden's consistently excellent Uncanny Valley imprint. As the title suggests, Analogue Amputations offers a dreamy, otherworldly take on deep house created using vintage machinery. Opener "Past The Eclipse" sets the tone, delivering a hypnotic number oozing with electronic pulses and rising and falling chords. "Counterflow" offers a delicious contrast between darkness and light, before "Droid Swift 586" impressively fuses elements of classic dub techno, bubbling electro and clandestine deepness. The Rising High-inspired ambient houser "Orience" completes an impressive package.

Review: By now, we've come to expect high quality from Dresden's Uncanny Valley imprint. This split EP, featuring four cuts from little-known names, predictably delivers more high-grade material. Sandrow M's intoxicating opener sounds like an organic, grown-up take on the Visionquest sound (and that's meant to be a compliment, incidentally), while Steve Kasper's "Unvexed Dub" has a delightfully dubby, late night feel - think echo-laden melodies, chunky percussion and locked-in repetition. Sherbe's "Kill Bill$" is pleasantly offbeat - all slo-mo grooves, percussive changes and odd synth loops - while Jacob Stoy's "S51" gloriously sits between ultra-deep house, 90s ambient and skittering IDM. While the least 'floor-friendly' of the lot, it's probably the EP's stand out moment.

Review: Having previously impressed with a string of "jam house" 12"s on Philpot, Stuttgart producer Sebastian Lohse pops up on the ever-reliable Uncanny Valley with his first EP since 2009. It's a fascinating listen, offering a skewed take on house that's hard to accurately define. The epic "Desert Flight" is a fidgety, maudlin vision, all uncomfortable Chicago house rhythms, woozy atmospherics, odd bleeps and curious vocal samples. It's rather good, even if it does sound like house music beamed down from another dimension. "Amorphed Limits" sounds like early Orbital or Meat Beat Manifesto making jazz-influenced deep house, while "Beercase Song" is as loose and organic a concoction as you're likely to find on a house 12" - all simple organs, snappy jazz percussion and unlikely vocal samples.

Review: Having previously contributed to Uncanny Valley 003 - perhaps our favourite various artists release from Uncanny Valley - Credit 00 becomes the latest artist to step up and deliver a solo EP for the Dresden imprint. Like Cuthead, C Beams and Jacob Korn before him, Credit 00 aka Alexander Dorn revels in the spotlight delivering a quartet of house cuts that reference the Mid West of the US without sounding like clones, embellishing each with his own sense of rhythm and texture. Snapping machine funk deep with layers of analogue detail and flexing acid are apparent from the opening track "Another Me" and tracks like "The Clave Problem" and "The Living Room Life" deftly combine a sense of melodic introspection with the impetus for bodily movement. Long may Dresden provide so fruitful for Uncanny Valley!

Review: Dresden native Cuthead portrays himself as an insect-filming love god with a passion for MPCs, fine food and experimental hip-hop. Here, he gives a glimpse of that wonk-hop passion with a fine EP for Uncanny Valley. Yet the two off-kilter hip-hop cuts here - the brilliant "Seram Lembah" and Bullion-ish "Heartless" - are merely a neat bonus; the EP's killer material takes a more house-centric approach. Both "Brother" (thick and creamy) and "Vibratin" (dubby and leftfield) display a looseness and lightness of touch rarely seen in analogue-heavy deep house productions. Then there's the wonderfully alien "Transgressions", which sounds like Maxmillion Dunbar put through the Uncanny Valley filter.

Review: The gentle buzz around the Uncanny Valley crew continues unabated with the release of the latest transmission from Dresden, courtesy of C-Beams. It's a smooth house number filled with the lush melodics we've come to expect of the plucky Germans. Tina Slotta's vocal comes from a similar place to Kate Rogers of Grand Central fame, allowing the composition to bob along nicely. Jackmate ups the ante somewhat with his hooky ways, dropping a killer stabbing string line which provides some additional edge.
