TECHNO / HOUSE

Cat. Number: RS1412D

Fearless techno jags from Paula Temple, back on R&S after the 'Colonized' EP in 2013. This time out she's much noisier, dynamic, baiting the apocalypse in three dramatic, tribalised onslaughts: 'Deathvox' is an outstanding collision of galloping, shuffling techno torque with 'Elephant Song'-style howls and a stunning doom denouement; from majestic intro, 'Monstro' bombs the senses with heavy artillery harking back to Techno Animal and Scorn at their fiercest; 'Ful' casts a long shadow of brassy synth plumes and thunderous drums reminding of Randomer. Tip!

TECHNO / HOUSE

Cat. Number: TCLRDNL009

A brilliantly lucid dose of Chicago house psychedelia from Jamal Moss aka Hieroglyphic Being on Photomachine's Technicolour label. Everything is rendered with crystal clarity and spacious mixdown which might come as a real shock for anyone used to Jamal's noisier excursions, but to be fair just feels like a natural progression from the more lucid episodes peppered across his vast catalogue. 'The Fourth Dimension' is a real peaktime blinder, ascending spiralling crystal staircases to enlightened harmonies, gushing acid and the kind of pounding, rushing … Read more

Outta the top drawer (literally), four never-before-heard Insync jams recorded in Forest Hill, South London, 1991! The combination of name and date should be ringing alarm bells for any techno fiends - it's one year before Insync released the timeless 'Storm', which, it turns out was actually recorded in 1990 with a very similar set-up of SH101, Roland 909 drum machine and some delays. As it was sourced from a dusty old tape the hiss levels are understandably high, but thanks to a subtle mastering job from Stefan Betke aka Pole, the tape reveals 4 gorgeous tracks ranging from weigh… Read more

TECHNO / HOUSE

Cat. Number: HES027

Bruce rolls off an ace 12" for Livity Sound into a trio of murky, mongrel techno trax for Hessle Audio. The lop-sided wamp of 'Not Stochastic' is a refreshing, exemplary take on the noisy, abstract techno nexus; yoking minimal, thrumming techno from the brink of psychedelic chaos to tensely gritted effect. By turns, 'Trip' takes the opportunity to investigate niche ambient zones between Burial, Inga Copeland and Dynamo, before 'My Legs Wouldn't Go Quick Enough' delivers a sort of dream-state return to the dancefloor with tetchy drums and morphing atmospheric pressure. It's a bewt. Tip!

Cat. Number: CURLE-P06D

Belgium's Curle pluck out Matthew Herbert & Charles Webster's deep DJ Boom banger 'Kinda Kickin'' for reissue, backed with a bassier re-shuffle from Efdemin. Originally released on Matthew Herbert's Phonography label, it's the sort of proper house obscurity that will get a lot of fiends hot under the collar. Edfemin's remix readjusts the slow-burning appeal with a poised, druggier groove accentuated by killer subbass swing and stoner guitar motifs.

Cat. Number: TRESOR271

A prime, if lesser-known, Drexciyan classic issued to download for the first time! Like the album it accompanied, 'The Opening of the Cerebral Gate' is notable for its stripped down and bass-biased electro-techno aesthetic, yielding three tracks which stand out uniquely from the duo's oeuvre: the funky trudge and sonar melodies of 'Power Of The 3rd Brain'; the spine-shivering all time classic 'Disrupted Neural Gateway'; an abyssal electro monster named 'Do You Want To Get Down'. Yes please, all day.

Cat. Number: ITX04

Killer debut drop from someone named Skee Mask on the scene-taking Ilian Tapes label. 'Serum' works in five stages flexing lean dub-tech muscle between the salted twitch and tuck of 'Cylo' thru the dessicated Dettmann styles of 'Torpor (Session)', and the Shed-alike breakbeat skank of 'Reduct Live' and two shorter tools diving deep into Chain Reaction territory. A must for T++ or Peverelist fans.

Stone cold classic Surgeon gear remastered for optimal impact. The 'Pet 2000' 12" was first released in 1995 and ratcheted Surgeon's taste for bittersweet microtonal discord to largely unprecedented levels within the techno scene. The evil 'Badger Bite' attacks from the front with a whirlwind of flying knife synth noise powered by storming drums that have seen more than enough carnage in their 19 years on the 'floor. Flipside, 'Electric Chicken' locks down to a skippier sort of techno brutalism, and 'Reptile Mess' really gets under the skin with its slippery synthlines and coiled groove. Now, pet…

Reissue of Surgeon's debut template for hard-as-f**k Brummie techno, originally issued in 1994. We hardly need to tell any hard techno fans the history of this 12", but for everyone else it was released in 1995 on his pal Regis' Downwards label as Lino 06. It contains the stringent, scowling minimalism of 'Magneze' and the buck-wild Chicagoan styles of 'Move' on the A-side, backed with the slinkier, dub chord-driven 'Atol' and the thunderous attack of 'Argon' on the flip. P-r-o-p-e-r pounders.

Cat. Number: OSMUK040EP

Hydraulik techno momentum from Manni Dee on Osiris UK, backed with a head-chopping Monic remix. No doubt: this is the best we've yet heard from Manni Dee, drying and concentrating his sound to a futurist industrial palette with the evil, poised rolige of 'Nicotine Kisses' and the sinuous, Surgeon-style tuck and shuffle of 'Sister Nobody', whereas 'Man Is Free, Man Is Freedom' dices with more abstract dub techno shapes a la Porter Ricks. Kryptic Minds own Mønic weighs in with killer blow, remixing 'Sister Nobody' with brutal concrète techno dynamics.

Funkineven comes as rough as yer nan's stubble on three killer analogue sessions - his most focused and stripped release to date. In fact, it's so gnarled there's even a warning on the centre label "It's Not Your Speakers, It's The Beat", a sure sign of great things ahead. On the A-side you'll feel the gravelly wallop of 'Beat Crash', a bruxist confection of wildly overdriven electro bass, surging hyper-Boogie keys and needling hi-hats, kinda like Alec Empire jamming with Dâm Funk. Flipside 'F*ck Off' churns any remaining residue between your ears with gargled acid tweaks and brittle-but-boo… Read more

"Vermont’s eponymous full-length debut also introduced the public to a different musical side of the project's founders Marcus Worgull and Danilo Plessow (of Motor City Drum Ensemble fame). An album worth of adventurous jam sessions and sleek synth soundscapes, it rather drew from sonic curiosity and the spirit of informal collaboration than the laser-like focus of the club tunes both producers have become known for. For this 12" Prins Thomas plunges into three reworks that emphasize the rhythmic elements of original cuts."

This.Is.The.Sh*t! Mariano D.C. debuts on Function's revived Infrastructure New York label with five hard-working, sub-heavy techno monsters. Hailing from Argentina, Mariano duly articulates his rhythms with a proper, latinate accentuation that works so damn well in techno context. There's an almighty big-room battery on the front called 'Kaverna', but we're even more into the shifty hydraulik lash of 'Estalaktita', followed by the thunderous title track, the pendulous 'Incidental' - give us a longer edit, please! - and the bombed-out juggernaut, 'Cascada'. F**k your stodgy, funkless techno; this is how it should be done. One for the dancers.

Easily the best Applepips since the Martyn 12" comes from the hands of our favourite Berlin producer and techno pioneer Torsten Profrock with two tempo varied techno steppers ranking among the best tracks in his catalogue. The real good techno stuff lies on the A-side with 'Audio1995*8', sitting next to his MDR remix or the sick 'Aquatic/Storm' tracks on a throbbing 130bpm techno flex with utterly alien synthlines decaying into fine abstract forms and anchored by deeply submerged beats shot through with that intricate rhythmic rattle that signifies the best of his work.

One for the cool kids, know who you are.
