TECHNO / HOUSE

Cat. Number: RHM 016

Deep house maverick, Hunee spills his mind all over the 'floor on his debut album, 'Hunch Music'. Over the last decade, Berlin-based Hunee has emerged a standard-bearer for sophisticated, psychedelic and soulful house music with a trim handful of tracks and 12"'s via Permanent Vacation, Ostgut Ton, and Rush Hour, all leading up to the dizzying colours and gripping arrangements of 'Hunch Music'. Rooted in the deepest traditions and disciplines of New York, Chicago, and Detroit, and with a trace of Korean heritage discernible in the his melodic sweetness, it plays out like a mid-summers dream o… Read more

Cat. Number: EAUX691

Techno hypnotist, Rrose, returns to Eaux with the pocket watch attractions of 'For Aquantice'. Made up like the unholy offspring of Papa Lazarou and Norman Bates in mummy's boy mode, Rrose peddles three patented and mindbending wormholes, subtly sucking us in with Eleh-esque purist sine tones to the rasping rhythmic skeleton of 'Levitate' and the recursive abyss of 'Vellum' on the A-side, whereas the sleek, pulsating throbs and spiralling oscillations of B-side's 'Signs' take hold with intra-venus strength and potency. They're proper deep brain and tissue stimulators.

TECHNO / HOUSE

Cat. Number: CBS018

Loose and rude breakbeat/house/techno functions from Dave Huismans (2562) in A Made Up Sound mode. His 3rd outing for Clone's Basement series opens up with the sub-heavy bruk house shunt of 'Cheaters VIP', last heard on his Boiler Room set, giving way to the noirish, Source Direct-like strings and cranky swagger of 'Funkstation', whilst B-side he plays out the fast yet low key and hypnotic 'Us' beside a sort of big band jazz gone dark techno roll-out with the Krupa-like drum cadence and layered darkside bass pressure, 'Them'.

**Includes A4 insert** Lethal breakbeat and squashed techno lashes on the debut from Gramrcy, backed with cracking Bruce and Hodge remixes for Berceuse Heroique sub-label, Ancient Monarchy. Goin' like it's '92 again, the new-blood producer spins on a proper breakbeat 'ardcore pivot with the swarming darkside stings and ruthless misbehaviour of 'Ruffian', which is duly yoked up to 2015 standards in a crushing Bruce remix making sterling use of youtube-style compression and smartly following up his Hessle Audio debut. On the turn, Gramrcy inverts to a dense, stomach-rumbling dub core and gutted ju… Read more

Cat. Number: TOKEN54D

Efdemin, Regis, Kangding Ray and Dasha Rush have their respective ways with 'Requiem' from Inigo Kennedy's 'Vaudeville' album. Efdemin pursues that Millsian magick with a spacious, bleeping 'Journey to the Stars' mix, whereas Regis proffers a more viral, itchy 'Human Host' version riven with tinfoil drums and killer radioactive discord. Kangding Ray reshapes the same elements at a swanging mid-tempo tilt, and Dasha Rush's 'Requiem for Humanity' comes off like some Profan experiment.

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.

Cat. Number: DOLLYDUBS5

'Block The Box' finds the master of modern breakbeat/techno/house romance at his lip-smacking best since the legendary 'Natural Selection/Vancouver' 12". Operating at full dancefloor sensitivity, Martyn distills a pure rave buzz over three superb cuts, whether synching West London broken beats and swooping subs with eccied-up pads in the effortless flow of 'Done Away', or hearkening directly to his 2008 period with the clipped breakbeat spun thru golden light chords and gully dubstep LFOs in 'EF40', leaving the title cut to expend its darker energy with a deadly blend of Reese bass and dusted garage-techno momentum.

Oscar Mulero's Warm Up serve two shots of big room techno thunder by Sleeparchive, backed with the boss's own, slinkier remixes. On top, Sleeparchive pushes the strapping 16th note synth pulses and 909 pelt of 'Windows 057', and the long dark techno tunnel of 'Windows 092' for the bruxist monkeys; down below Mulero trims the former to pizzicato arpeggios and rumbling kicks, and streamlines the latter to a brain burrowing sub-aquatic acid sound.

Berlin's Positive Centre slow rolls onto Stroboscopic Artefacts' Monad series with his first release beyond Our Circula Sound. The tempos are still depressed, but actually a little more energetic this time out, from the vertiginous plunge of 'Great Excavator' rolling at 120bpm, down to the near-beatless, abyssal plateau of 'Disappearing Trick', bringing on a hard case of the bends with the belting 115bpm knocker, 'Figure is in the Form', and passing out into the comatose drone zone of 'Signal Structure'.

Subtly infectious, rolling techno-electronica from Belgium's GoldFFinch duo. The proggy build and electroid minimalism of 'Unworthy' could almost be a Modeselektor cut if we weren't told otherwise; 'Brother' plays down a slinkier darkroom techno wiggle; 'Layers' jacks up a nervy acid jag with super precise production. On the remix, Bangkok's Sunju Hargun reduces 'Unworthy' to a sleazy, sub-powered prowler.

Further proving their position as forerunners of the mongrel, junkyard techno aesthetic adopted by everyone from Prostitutes to Helena Hauff and Powell, the set revolves eight scabbed and ruffneck cuts ranging from the jagged metallic drums and pat… Read more

Lord Of The Isles revives his Little Strong Recordings with four inspired deep house and electronica moments. This is the real romantic stuff, blessed with a heady, dreamy concoction of folkwise melody, effortless groove and heavenly harmonies. On one side his 'Fey Folk (Intro)' swirls reversed loops to a creamy lather before 'Ossian's Hall' reaches out with rolling disco percussion and cirrus-like wisps of timeless IDM/folk melody; on the other he envisions classic Detroit/AI bleeps and aerial waltz rhythms with 'Xatsiv' and beams out the divine astral techno boogie of 'Nuston'.
