Cat. Number: ITX05

Skee Mask slings a 2nd lot of crackshot techno on Ilian Tape with the 'Junt' EP. His 1st release, 'Serum', issued in late 2014, injected a much-needed dose of broken, sparky and rude funk to the techno scene, and this one does much the same, with an added swell of blistered, psychedelic noise texture and shots of sweetened melody for good measure. The title track kicks up a cloud of dusty atmospheres and dub-sprung dynamics to ease us in, before 'Hover' almost loses its mind in a roil of atonal apparitions, to be rescued by rolling groove and sweeping, sunken pads. 'Larus Canus' follows at a more… Read more

Wicked session of of raw and smart house trax inspired by early Sheffield bleep styles. Klasse Wrecks' Luca Lozano and Mr. Ho on the buttons, paying tribute to their time spent in the Steel City circa 1990, and generating four joints jacking from the ruddy dark funk of 'Dripbox' to frayed and dusty bleep memories in 'Bear Samurai', and over to the box-cutting swagger ov 'Hot Trak', tipping out with our personal highlight, the clipped machine funk minimalism of 'Autonomika'.

Cat. Number: TB047

Toronto's MKFN return to Touchin' Bass with the shuddering techtronics of 'This Divide' EP. A strong quartet of cuts veering from strobing halfstep flux and swarming ambient ecologies à la Fis in 'Terrain' and the turbulent super-dub of 'Somewhere, Here', to slightly more serene zones of 'Inland', before 'Stasis' contacts to a more controlled sorta rolige aching with radioactive chords and briztling noise textures.

An Easyjet-set fantasy come to life; Lucy and (Ben) Klock team up for Stroboscopic Artefacts. 'Bliss' pulses icy ambient tones setting the scene for a tunnelling big room squeeze, 'War Lullaby' and over into slower, experimental oscillations of 'Santeria' and the spectral resonance of 'A Ghost Lovestory'.

TECHNO / HOUSE

Cat. Number: LLL001

Laidback tech-house swing from new player, Edmondson, for new label, Lissoms. The A-side's 'Nocturnal 92' casually evolves from low-lit chords and tape noise pivoting on a breezy kick/clap syncopation to trancier electronic motifs before filling the gaps with tight breaks and warm vibes. B-side rolls straighter with the clipped drums and fidget funk of 'Caraiba' offset by dope cowbell, and 'Loop finding (4JO)' tips out on a weightless, dusted breakbeat flex.

Cat. Number: HTH040D

Special request for Regis and Fis remixes of Akkord from Houndstooth. Last spotted on 'HTH035', these two sympathetic mixes correspond with the original's bloodied and brutalist sound design, with Fis absorbing and infusing a conflagration of 'Gravure' and 'Continuum' with rolling, windswept ambient motifs and turbulent hydro-electric charge reflecting the semi-industrial, semi-pastoral landscape of the 'Hayfield To New Mills' trip, whereas Regis carves the same cuts into a lurching, monolithic techno-stepper disciplined with the cranky Whip Hand of a maniacal Mill overse'er.

Swanky, diverse new Dial compilation featuring exclusive material from all your deep, techy and ambient house faves.

Bass Clef does his bright and melodic modular dance thing for Belfast's Rudimentary Records. 'Humming Blurs' sprawls the A-side with chiming, avian synth tones ruffled by stuttered and collapsing techno-dubbed drum chicanery for the IDM sweetboys and girls.On the other side, 'Chanson Du Ricochet' charges up a freakish, sputtering sort of alien techno deviation wrapped in shredded ribbons of salty modular scree and amorphous noise.

Pushing a plush vibe from from the lovely balance of diaphanous synth voice and raving stabs in 'Obsession' to the Italo-techno drama of 'Show Interest', taking a moment for reflection with the starry keys of 'Eye Contact', and finishing with the OPN-goes-techno flourish of 'Rise Fall Run'.

Upstairs, 'Wurk It' dispenses a full-bodied percolator ripened with bucking claps and twanging lead line in a smooth-but-rugged take on classic Dance Mania; downstairs, 'Acid Nothing' drags the tempo down for a skudgy and subtly proggy 303 jam.

Seductive dancefloor alchemy from Optimo's Italian duo, Claudio Brioschi and Cristian Croce a.k.a. Boot & Tax. Cross-pollinating traces of Afro-beat, dub and European synth music for the good of the dancefloor, as exemplified in the skanking steppers lilt and wiggle of opener 'Good Fela', essentially this is a modern iteration of the Italian cosmic disco genre coined by Danielle Baldelli and Beppe Loda in the '70s/'80s. It's super-easy going and timelessly infectious (even JD Twitch's 80 year old step-mother has been rinsing it), weaving elements of spaghetti westerns ('red Guitar') alongside … Read more
