Review: Its fairly safe to say that Jay Bliss is on fire at the moment. Now he takes time out from his recently launched "Stomping Grounds" imprint to follow up on his 2013 appearance with OCH on "The Remix EP". Here the warm, punchy 9 minute A-side creates a highly seductive floor-tension. Flip the disc over for two modern take's on minimalism, possibly paying homage to Studio One or Basic Channel with persistent rhythms, undertones of original dub, shaken and stirred with plenty off Bliss magic.

Review: Much of Dan Curtin's recent output has focused on his house leanings, but this release sees him switch back to a techno sound. However, you may be surprised if you are expecting a continuation of the abstract magic of albums like "Art & Science" or "Silicon Dawn". Instead, the US producer bases shaking percussion and dissected vocal samples around an ominous bassline on the title track. That said, "Fly By Night" does have a connection to his past work - while remaining rooted on the dance floor, the cacophony of bleeps, shaking percussion and loose bass comes across as a cleaner take on the freeform jazz techno of his Time Undefined project.

Review: Presented in 5mm spine, LTD edition full-artwork colour sleeve which fits Parts 1-3. Having scored on Mosiac, Bodyparts and Project London, Kashawar returns to Autoreply to complete his critically acclaimed "Moments & Lost Memories" series. Here the young German star steps up with "Time Cures" a hook driven weapon possibly paying a slower respect to Mill's "Purpose Maker" releases. MPC style swing infects the groove on "Rise and Shine" adding soothing vocals and subtle acid lines to Side A. Flip the disc for deep, funking atmospherics on "Knotting" and "Spheres" adds some of Kashawar's early morning dub magic to the package. Look out for repressed Parts 1 & 2 to complete your collection!

Review: Autoreply label owner OCH invites Kashawar into the fold for their 16th release, following the rising German producer's breakout releases for underground imprints Project London and Soul.on Records. For his Autoreply debut, Kashawar presents Moments and Lost Memories (Parts 1 & 2) which covers all bases of his production palette. Kicking off with "A Feeling" you'll instantly get a "Hi-Tek Jazz" flavour before moving onto "Broken" - a playful yet refined ten minute contemporary minimal work-out. Flip the disc for "Over" and the tension starts to build before the release climaxes with "Flos" a speaker shaking dub work-out of the highest order. With collaborations with Steve O'Sullivan on Mosiac plus Pluie/Noir appearances approaching, it's clear Kashawar is a special young talent!

Played by: James Kumo
Review: James Kumo may have a small back catalogue, but he can be relied on to produce tracky, hypnotic techno. "Indigo 2.0" is a perfect example of his ability to deliver streamlined grooves. A rolling bass-heavy affair, it features subtle filtered builds primed for the floor. "Indigo 1.0" is more haunting, as evocative synths lap up against a dub-infused slamming rhythm, while Kumo explores a different approach with the title track. Like "Indigo 2.0", "Snakes" is also based on a rolling groove and veers into darker territories, with a menacing, growling riff combined with doubled-up reverberating claps. The EP ends in more reflective mode, with building acidic bleeps interspersed with slivers of metallic percussion on "Cloned One".

Review: Following on from his 2012 Autoreply debut The Model steps up again with a precise, deadly and effective two tracker. As a producer he can never be pigeonholed, serving up his mysterious blends of deep, robotic, space- funk across labels like Traum Schallplatten, Crosstown Rebels and his own Adult Central imprint . "Night Time's The Right Time" finds the Romanian in fine form, laying down punchy drums with pulsating bass, persistent chords and analog synth-tension. Flip the disc for "Wolf" and you get a darker, dub-driven take over the same infectious, floor-shaking beats.

Review: Hot on the heels of his critically acclaimed Whalesong EP for Trelik, OCH returns with another equally crucial deep club orientated two tracker. "Sophisticated Animated" contains a level of funk and energy that is often lost in today's house music. Being constantly inspired by the US pioneers of the genre, OCH presents stripped back Chicago grooves alongside heavy analogue bass and jacking percussion, teasing with a sprinkling of 303 acid and a sparse yet deadly piano solo. Up next, "Moonlight Sonata" is OCH's deepest work to date, incorporating dubstep inspired drums and ambience with lush old-school synth chords which build and modulate before the track climaxes into a thundering four to the floor workout.

Review: It's been a hot minute since we heard something new from Och, but he's back on Autoreply with an album of high-grade, stripped back tech house shot through with oodles of imagination. "Panamax" is the consummate dubby house track, a true immersion chamber of a track, while "The Sadness" brings a shuffling groove and some peppy key stabs to the table. "The Healer" is a more overtly minimal affair that would sound at home on PAL SL, while "Linear Response Function" keeps things tight and focused with a sturdy rhythmic framework and some spartan piano notes. "Incompressible Flow" has a submerged jazzy undercurrent to it, and "Lovers Roll" gets into that freaky house bounce heard on "The Sadness". Overall, it's another sterling grip of refined tracks from a seasoned pro.

Review: Autoreply Music's 20th release sees the return of OCH with a seven-track EP, following on from output on renowned labels like PAL SL, Trelik and Bass Culture. By focusing on stripped-back percussive grooves, sparse 909 drum programming and ultra fine-tuned dynamics he certainly proves that the original jackin' house and techno sound will always have plenty of life and soul, especially on "Samarkand Sulci" and "Snarecrow". "Don't Fight It" is an eight-minute acid builder featuring haunting vocals and crisp synths, whilst the bass-driven dub of "Enceladus" wouldn't be complete without live delays and distorted pianos. Check Out "Morning Glory" for a surprise contender for this year's balearic soundtrack or "C Ring" for ultimate warmth. Tracks for every situation and not to be missed!

Jay Bliss - "Men Are From Mars, Women Are From Venus" (original mix) - (7:18) 123 BPM
Review: OCH has a strong pedigree of collaborations with fellow underground stalwart Jay Bliss the latest to share space on a Autoreply record with the label boss. Bliss should be known to many as the co-owner of Electrique Boutique alongside Markus Homm, for a long time the only vinyl outlet in Romania, and his discography makes for impressive reading these days. Recent times have seen Mr Bliss share record space with the likes of Skudge and Petre Inspirescu on respected imprints like 20:20 Vision, All Inn, Hudd Traxx and Fear Of Flying. AUTO 015 kicks off with a bouncy rework of OCH's "Scammell" from Bliss featuring sub-aqua sound-scapes and sonar blips on an instantly playable US inspired groove. OCH's original has a distinctly liquid approach possibly referencing the work of LTJ Bukem and Good Looking over techno framework. Jay's main offering "Men Are From Mars" is controlled acid which OCH shifts up a gear for peak time floor play layering the original TB303 patterns to a thundering climax.

Review: Autoreply Music's 14th release sees label boss OCH welcome two of Tokyo's most influential players to the family. As co-founder of the Pan Records label and collaborator with Mathias Kaden as Mathimidori, DJ PI-GE has been integral to the capital's current wave of house and techno, whilst his high standing as a DJ has seen bookings at respected European haunts Panorama Bar, Womb and Robert Johnson. His track "Down Map" features soft vocals, and catchy drifting synths which build and tease over an 8 minute backdrop of tight, club orientated percussion. op.disc regular DEN has an equally fruitful musical heritage having lived in London and Berlin and recorded for electronic institutions like Soma and Trapez. Returning to his homeland he's now established himself as one of the nations premium DJs. "Rushing For Love" is built around powerful drums and speaker shaking bass,perfect for the peak time with haunting piano creating a mood of euphoric tension and suspense. OCH's "Fika" embraces his early UK house and garage roots with warm vintage keys and lush female vox. "Doctors Orders" is a unique beatless weapon of spoken word and analogue synths completing the line-up of this very special EP.

Review: Four deadly cuts of timeless, jackin' house and deep techno professionalism. OCH returns to his Autoreply home with a new series of split releases. OCH opens with "Deltic" which sets the mood with tough yet soulful Chicago vibes. His second contribution is "Freeze-Thaw" showcasing a deep, hypnotic groove alongside powerful sub-bass, lush female vox with dreamy analogue pads that bridge the gap between artistic creativity and memorable club versatility. Next up it's Romanian all-rounder, The Model, who has previously graced premium labels such as Traum Schallplatten and International DJ Gigolo. Here he delivers two ultra-phat workouts in the form of "Dungeon Man", an infectious chord driven floor-burner and "Stancuto" a stripped back, percussive take on the same theme demonstrating his emerging new warehouse sound with just the slightest salute to Echocord or Dehnert.

Review: Perbec is Mark Broom and Baby Ford. Their last vinyl outing was "Variety Club" for the seminal Ifach imprint in 2001. Here they return with "Chaser" an epic journey into the original principles of house music. Infectious bass, Chicago-style keys and deep, analog synth pads announce that the party is very much in full force. Flip the disc for "Long John" which features stripped rhythms with plenty of swing and energy - equally suited to the main room or afterhours. Mastered at D & M.
