Review: At times, it really does feel as if DMX Krew must make tune sin his sleep; wherever we look, we find a new EP or album form the man, and all of the highest calibre, too! This time, the long-haired UK techno soldier lands on the ever-excellent Hypercolour with a hefty nine-tracker made up of eerie, slithering techno and cinematic electro. The opener "Spiritual Encounter" is almost enough in term of quality - check those Drexciyan waves - and the res of this beauty develops in similar fashion, from the gorgeous strings od "Bombay Mix", to the grizzly synth-led beats of "Daylight Saving", and the heavy, Detroit style of "Computational Paradigm Shift". Class, through and through.

Review: UK label Hypercolour has proven to be one of the most dependable outlets of house and techno for over a decade now. Matter of fact, they're so consistent that they can take take any particular segment within the label's history - in this case between 2015 & 2017 - and comfortably show off an extended collection of highlights from their discography. It was a great couple of years of music with Jamie Russell, Alex Jones & Ste Roberts proving their stable of artists were active throughout all of it. Highlights coming from: Space Dimension Controller with his remix of legend Luke Vibert's "Jack U Whole", Vibert again under his Kerrier District alias getting reworked by Bulgarian hardware maverick KiNK on the euphoric "Techno Disco", UK retrovert DMX Krew on the groovy electro-funk jam "Spiritual Encounter" and the inimitable Robag Wruhme working his minimalist magic as always on his rework of The Cyclist's "Pressing Matters".
