TECHNO / HOUSE

Cat. Number: AUS1459

Gritty swing-jack joints from one of the UK's dopest yung house producers, backed with two 'floor-scrambling Redshape remixes. Read's 'Shrubby' runs motor city bassline through a thicket of scratchy drums and slicing, Chez Damier/Maurizio chords to rugged effect, which Redshape duly reroutes with patented kick drum thump, haywire electronics and a surging, club-slaying synthline. On 'Zig Zag' Read locks down to a haughty, humping computer jack pattern with wickedly delirious finale, and Redshape takes it to a deeper, stranger, place with progressive builds. Tipped!

Unknown Precept follow their industrial compilation 'The Black Ideal' with a noisy, clattering vinyl debut by Damaskin. Toiling scorched earth between AnD, Prostitutes and the Weevil series, four tracks rove from heads-down industrial churn to skippier, sub-heavy off-beats, wild-eyed experiments and grubby monotone slammers.

TECHNO / HOUSE

Cat. Number: DFA2432

Gunnar Haslam, Invisible Conga People, and Daniel Avery overhaul the jagged jakbeat 'How You Say' from Factory Floor's debut LP. L.I.E.S.-regular Haslam softens the edges and boosts the bass on a pumping, hypnotic reduction ready for open-minded 'floors, whereas IDIB/DFA dudes Invisible Conga People drag down the tempo to a waltzing chug inflected with fizzing electronics and lushest, BoC-like pads for a proper mogadon disco sound. However, we reckon it's Daniel Avery's dreamy, drugged-up tech-house version, finding the sweetest space between vaulted, Cocteau Twins-like atmospheres and Kompakt-style groove that's gonna see the most dancefloor action, and rightly so.

Cat. Number: 0827170419780

Tightly-coiled minimal techno from Italy's Dario Tronchin aka Chevel on return to Stroboscopic Artefacts after many missions for his own Enclav label. As with the best SA releases, the five tracks of 'One Month Off' are built with a fine balance of experimentation and dancefloor suss. A-side he does this best with the chiselled but elastic swingjack of 'One Month Off' and the Itinerant Dubs-style sprung buck of 'The Wall'. B-side deals in more experimental grooves with the bare bones jack and bristling electronic textures of 'Cave Dwellings', a Lakker-like breakbeat techno number named 'Mark… Read more

Cat. Number: disko606

"The fifth release on disko404 Records is by IZC, an artist who has been active for almost two decades in the local scene of Vienna, Austria. In 2008, he finally started Dubsquare Records together with media artist Boris Kopeinig. For "Zig-Zag", IZC brings together the sounds of dark UK Funky/Grime and Detroit House. A stripped-down hardware setup in combination with a restriction to a basic stereo-track recording technique results in four raw and direct dance tracks with an unmatched live-feeling to them. While the opening tune, "Zig-Zag", starts out as a straight 4/4 beat, its rhythm is soon twist… Read more

TECHNO / HOUSE

Cat. Number: DF06

Cold, hardware-driven Russian techno from Sanys, backed with Eomac's splintered jungle-tekno remix. The sixth release on Downfall Theory is defined by Sanys darkest atmospheres and industrialised rhythms, coolly taking in the swinging momentum of 'Dominance' alongside the reduced acid techno throbs of 'My Concern', and the radioactive pumper 'Told You So'. Eomac promptly switches tack with his remix of the latter, deviating into broken techno rhythms with rusty, unstable textures and gloomy ambience.

'Headlock' is a ruder reduction riding the b-line with dubbed out vocal and invisible bitch-slap synth for the darkrooms, beside the chugging electro haughtiness of 'Tourette'.

**Full three-track EP** Another superb, wide-scoped dancefloor session from the inimitable Djrum. Fifteen minute epic 'The Miracle' works in two sections: First part is a breezy, swinging garage groove riding wide, skanking subs and bustling but spacious drums against his signature backdrop of cinematic, widescreen pads, exotic vocals infusions and nagging dancefloor hooks. In the 2nd part he slows his roll to a mellow sway urged by insistent subbass and dubble-timed drums bookended with dream sequence chords, field recordings and snatches of film dialogue adding up to a haunting atmosphere… Read more

One of modern techno's outstanding producers sets the ground for his 'Vaudeville' album with two superb productions. Following the increasingly melodic themes of his recent releases for Token, both cuts are sensitively strung-out and driven by uniquely contoured grooves. 'Lullaby' is a brooding, offset roller with vaulted harmonics and shimmering, mercurial melodies harking back to Autechre's 'LP5' but with a smoother, effortless flow, and 'Petrichor' follows suit with another emotionally involved arrangement of ascendent chords, intricate reverbs and a bustling, slinky groove tha… Read more

His 'HANA' opener is a right banger in the mould of Oliverwho Factory's urgent hard house aces, and 'Postulating shows the noise techno kids how to do freaky but with a funked-up swagger. 'SYMP' is the deepest piece, 8 minutes 08 seconds of submerged yet celestial techno elegance, and 'Genetouche' captures a beautiful balance of frantic drums and serene, centred vibes for the dancefloor mystics.
