After a decade of 12" releases, Ostgut Ton boss Nick Höppner delivers his dope debut album for the world-renowned label outta Berlin. While he may not have the celebrity status conferred upon the rest of Berghain/Panorama Bar's residents, Höppner's productions have long stood out as prime examples of *that* Berlin house sound. 'Folk' collects nine of 'em, capturing him at his most focussed and diverse between wayward pieces such as the effluent bubbler 'Grind Show' and beautifully gauzy breakbeat trip, 'Airway Management', thru to his patented style of slinky, trance-y tech-house with the lip-smacki… Read more

**Debut album by the former 100% Silk regular for Ghostly** "Throughout Insides, Fort Romeau guides us down misty corridors lined with supple synth pads, quietly thumping kicks, and elastic low-end sequences reinforced by an emotive confidence. Thick dancefloor cuts like "All I Want" and "Folle" are built on such satisfying elements—sounds so full-bodied, you'd swear they're knocking against your bones. This, too, is by design. "I wanted to make sure all the songs have a tangible quality," says Greene of his LP's physicality, "to make texture and grain become as important a part of the vocabulary … Read more

Penned in convalescence following a bout of illness during 2014, it reframes the Scuba sound with moodier lighting and literal existential heft implied by track titles such as 'Why You Feel So Low' and 'All I Think About Is Death'. Essentially it's Scuba's Health Goth album, appropriating some traces of the collaged designer sounds associated with Total Freedom/HBA/Tri Angle to a palette of big room techno and brooding IDM/electronica signatures, leaden with industrial-referencing field recordings, like the Whitehouse-esque 'Family Entertai… Read more

Parisian Afro-futurist Bambounou projects a mystic, dystopian premonition of things to come with 2nd album, 'Centrum' for Modeselektor's label. Inspired by the sci-fi predictions of Akira and Dune, and operating in aesthetic orbit of Jeff Mills, Jamal Moss and Untold, we find ten tracks unfolding a cracked narrative of night vision synths and scuffed, semi-organic rhythms that seem to have a micro-life of their own. It works very neatly as a play-through listen, twysting between frayed, Afro-centric shuffle and Detroit-style electronics in 'Composer' and the polychromatic Mills arrangement of 'Fire … Read more
