**SDJR turns out a whole party's worth of funk with an infectious debut album sporting guest spots by Julio Bashmore, fLako and Kutmah** "From time to time a DJ or producer comes along who transcends a particular scene, bridges the gap between disparate movements and unites tribal music fans. Seven has that talismanic quality. His productions have a rawness… a loose-knit, lolloping groove that seduces even the most steadfastly stubborn of hips. Recorded in LA, San Francisco, Amsterdam and London, Universes is a unique exploration of his musical landscape, traversing tempo… Read more

Cat. Number: BB189

Kurt Dahlke a.k.a. NDW pioneer Pyrolator takes his turn to reconstruct and adapt the work of pivotal Berlin-skool composer, Conrad Schnitzler. This posthumous, inter-generational collaboration is even better than it reads on paper/screen, with Dahlke aiming to "present a side of Conrad which I has always heard in his music but one which often goes unnoticed: a darker, technoid side". He arguably fulfils his intentions in style over 12 vast, amorphous synthscapes foregrounding the compatibilities between Schnitzler's modular extractions and a modern day sound of Berlin tec… Read more

Cat. Number: REKIDS076

*Reissue* Matt Edwards aka Radio Slave builds on the foundations of tracky Chicago house styles with his first Rekids release since the 'Live Edits' EP. By the artist's own admission, 'The Clone Wars' is meant to be taken as a "my 'Screaming Hands' for 2014… a war cry to people out there , music or otherwise, who think it's creative and cool to replicate the past." It appears as a wiggly original with nagging vocal stab and infectious, ear-weevlin' synth hook, backed with a stripped down instrumental, acapella and synthapella.

Cat. Number: IM033

"In quick succession to his Tessier-Ashpool junglist reinvention via the "Emphasis" EP, Otik follows up with companion piece "Strangelove" - a statement of his versatility, and of the liminal variety possible within the framework of 130-ish BPM breaks-led electronic compositions. Operating on the boundary between a fragmented grime take and a rolling jungle stepper, opener "Glimpse" is as stammering as its telltale vocal sample, urging listeners to "do a double take"...; and leading by example, it proceeds to constantly fracture and reassemble itself in real time. Follow-up "Futile" is most rem… Read more

Paul Woolford leaves his Special Request bomber jacket at home for a powerful return to techno-house styles on Hotflush. His first release under his own name since 2013, 'Orbit' hammers out finely engineered techno propulsion systems on the front, whilst the back-breaking EBM piano house reinforcements of 'MDMA' keep it hardcore on the turn.

Hot on the heels of their Sound Signature session, Dego & Kaidi return to Eglo with a quartet of super-soulful rug-cutters. Vibes are strong on this wan, whether greazing the parched drums and mirage-like synth shimmers of 'Black Is Key' with deep jazz vocal harmonies and fruity keys, or loosening up the pointillist shuffle of 'Man Made' with wobbly, wavey chords on the A-side, or travelling from the Afro-centric idiosyncrasies of 'Orbiting Uhuru' to inimitably clipped and charming summer-in-West London styles with 'The Vault Descends'.

In classic dub fashion, Deadbeat reworks three of his smartest, stripped down rhythm tracks for Visionquest's label. 'Berghain Drum Jack (2015 Edit)' is a fgreshly trimmed mix of 'Grounation (Berghain Drum Jack)' from his 'Roots And Wire' [2008] album; 'Mecca Drum Jack (2015 Edit)' is a neat nip 'n tuck of the same cut from 'Eastward On To Mecca' [2008]; the juicy 303 and writhing dub FX of 'Acid Dub Jack' make for an entirely new cut, by our reckoning.

Style. On the remix flex, Mike Q flounces all over 'Saw' with catty and concussive stabs next to a brutal, industrialised fix-up from Neana. Proper DJ and dancer specials.

Cat. Number: AVN020

Austere techno from Sigha on Shifted's Avian imprint. A tense and bitter product of its times, 'Techno Derivatives' reduces the style to its most skeletal form with visionary, precision tooled engineering. The A-side cuts are sick, with the tantric '02' teasing the kick drum around shuddering mass of metallic synths and '04' economically rolling with reversed kicks and match-strike percussion sparking in the darkness. Likewise, B-side, '09' holds steadfast to a muted palette with eerie success, and '12' delivers venomous, pounding kicks.

Mr. Beatnick flexes a proper disco-tech sound with 'Formed In The Stance' for Semtek's DBA label. 'Stutter' opens with some weighty momentum balanced between slyding synth flares and bristling electro NRG bass, whilst the coruscating scales and slippery disco moves of 'Jellyfish' recall classic Patrick Cowley. The title track dims the lights to a noirish, jazzy West London bustle, and 'Obsidian Morning' synchs a lissom swing between wood-crack claps, dubble-dip bass and flighty arpeggios. Great stuff.

Under the cutting title, 'Conscious C*nt', Swiss-born, Nepalese-Tibetan artist Aïsha Devi explores notions of "womanhood, spirituality, materialism and societal pressure" for her Houndstooth debut. Arching up with escalating trance arpeggios and bruised bass palpitations before a spectral denouement introduces her pitched vox in 'Kim & the Wheel of Life', she continues to pursue stranger, processed vocal timbres in a beat-less recitation of an Urdu poem by Pakistani feminist Kishwar Naheed, 'Aurat (Tool)', and scales up haunting chant and hard-textured synth to a captivating accumulation of energy and emotion.
