TECHNO / HOUSE

Cat. Number: HADAL3

Hessle Audio's Pangaea grapples with gritty UK techno/bass mutations in his 3rd, self-released number for Hadal. Raking over and reigniting an embarrassment of UK rave riches, he cuts out four tracks ranging from the early Autechreian inflections of 'Something In Your Eye' to the roguish roil of ragga chat and halfstep techno rolige in 'Stimulant Dub', before the rusty bassline house shank of 'New Shapes In The Air' bowls out on the B-side next to a Norman Nodge-like shake-down entitled 'They Buy Gold'. Super solid set for the DJs and dancers.

IG Culture and Alex Phountzi return with some up-to-the-second rhythms on their 2nd outing as NameBrandSound. Infusing a mercurial UK soul to the patterned structures of footwork, trap and house, the 'Spaceship' EP gets live in five parts, from the nagging vocal stabs and crooked eklectro-funky pulse of 'It's Cold' to a run of Chicago-style winners taking in the rapid flux of the title track plus the slowfast bashment bullet, 'Bran Dem Riddim', the chrome-drip chords of 'Can't Stop This', and a soulful tizzy entitled 'Head’.

Percussive house tricks from General Ludd, who was known as Dam Mantle before enlisting in the house army with releases for Clan Destine, Mister Saturday Night Records and Autonomous Africa. 'Wigu Hill' jerks out like Soundhack meets Dego; 'Molycorps Mountain Pass' deals in flanging metallic tribalism; 'Garimpos' locks down to a Diskant-like loop-off; 'Prisoners Dilemna' gets down liek a Bookworms bewt with taut layers of writhing, driving drum patterns.

Cat. Number: TFEXX3

Shed cuts loose on this towering one-off for Hardwax label, The Final Experiment. A-side is a '90s-style breakbeat techno behemoth putting the boot in with thunderous kicks and armour-plated breaks, mercifully softened up with some really sweet pads at the drop. B-side, he rides with a ruder, heady halfstep in 'Final Distortion', and jumps back on that 2-step techno pivot with 'Up The Hills', whereas the brash thwack of 'Crystal Cubes' yearns for nasty, early Polygon Window styles.

Moiré, Disguise and pals flex their new Neversleep moniker for Phonica White with a trio of ruder house functions. Leading on from Moiré's 'BBoy 202' for Werk Discs/Ninja Tune, he gets busy on the A-side with a hulking, Kardashi-assed house bomb in his remix of 'Mouth Shut', before tagging in Disguise on the B-side for a sorta wonky Daft Punk (Homework era) style hip house boogie slam, and the man's own Special Mix of 'Mouth Shut' swapping the choking pressure for something much lighter, defter.

Blawan reveals his bleakest, most bleached-out and finest constructions on his second modular techno session for his Ternesc label. In contrast to the all-out barrage of 'Warm Tonal Touch', these trax are reduced to bare, viscous vibrations and spooked sci-fi atmospheres in four parts. A-side sets a shivering tone with the sputtering bass pattern and gloomy ambient motifs of 'Hanging Out With The Birds', for 'Mine Oh Mine' to pick up the pace while concentrating the vibes to serpentine effect somewhere between Baby Ford & Ifach Collective's 'Sacred Mahcine' and recent Vereker/Restra… Read more

Bicep curls a trio of proggy '90s tribal, acid and breaks formulas. On top, 'Just' nods to early bleep and Sasha-like prog arrangements, and 'Celeste' meets rolling congas with breathy, floating vocals and piano keys. B-side, 'Back 2 U (Tranz Dub)' nods to Plastikman's sweeter acid side and again with the Sasha-lite melodic prog arrangements.

*Simon Pomery aka Blood Music returns with a new EP for Diagonal, including a stellar remix from Luke Younger, aka Helm* Simon Pomery makes an emphatic return to Diagonal with the Taiko fire of ‘Chicks’, the brutal percussive workout of Badgering’ and a hardcore remix from Helm. On this long-gestated follow-up to 2013’s eponymous EP, the Blood Music project continues to rage, syncing Taiko-inspired drumming patterns with vicious metal guitar dissonance and contact mic haptics. ‘Chicks’ runs at an over-stepping, febrile EBM heart rate, pelting modular palpitations made alongside … Read more

Cat. Number: AVN019

Clinical techno hypnosis conducted by Sweden's Peder Mannerfelt and Simon Haydo for Shifted's Avian label. This is some of the purest, most visceral Techno we've heard in a while, grappling with sheer frequencies and shifty patterns with a proper, bloody-minded focus. It more or less blends the best of both their worlds - Mannerfelt's uncanny studio skill and Haydo's sleek, purified dance tracks found on DEM. There's five cuts of finer wave functions oscillating between monotone jacks, rumbling rhythmic noise and EBM-tainted throbbers for the hardest-to-please experimental techno heads.

Debonaire deep house class from Fred Peterkin, a.k.a. the Mariana trench of modern American house music. Appearing under a new handle, FP-Oner, the NYC native ploughs a fertile field of house music in 'Oner 5', one nourished on jazz, ambient electronics and African rhythms and subtly steeled with a slinky, minimal techno backbone. As the follow-up to his widely-adored 2010 release, 'The Incredible Adventures of Captain P', it follows his well-honed instincts with a refined sense of production economy and heads-down momentum but, not at the expense of his lusher intimations, clearly expressing a posit… Read more
