TECHNO / HOUSE

Cat. Number: TRESOR275

Fracking heavy techno from the smart duo of DJ Deep and Roman Poncet. Straight-up club constricts for the DJs, building a right head on it with the unrelenting kicks and rasping shuffle of 'Hydraulic Jack' up top, and to tenser degrees with the jagged slam of 'Hydraulic Pump', whereas 'Artesian Well' hydroplanes beat-less.

TECHNO / HOUSE

Cat. Number: HFCD010

Scuba returns with his 4th solo album, 'Claustrophobia'. Penned in convalescence following a bout of illness during 2014, it reframes the Scuba sound with moodier lighting and literal existential heft implied by track titles such as 'Why You Feel So Low' and 'All I Think About Is Death'. Essentially it's Scuba's Health Goth album, appropriating some traces of the collaged designer sounds associated with Total Freedom/HBA/Tri Angle to a palette of big room techno and brooding IDM/electronica signatures, leaden with industrial-referencing field recordings, like the Whitehouse-esque 'Family En… Read more

Cat. Number: RS1505D

Tessela leaves the boisterous big beats at home in favour of sickest EBM/electro-acid patter in 'Bottom Out', backed with a squashed and jagged Kowton remix. The original 'Bottom Out' picks up where Kowton's remix of 'Erotic Discourse' left off, rejecting kick 4/4 kick drums to focus on prickling industro-dub drums and acidic squirts with loadsa room to dance. Always a step ahead, Kowton's OTT remix extrudes those patterns with mind-bending phase shifts to a saltier, shiftier effect, neatly prepping for the tumultuous abstraction of Tessela's 'Total Music'.

Pushing arguably the most exciting dance sound in the world right now, Rogério Brandão aka DJ Nigga Fox is all about sinuous rhythms and mad technoid sounds, coiling the legacy of Angolan and Congolese drum patterns with up-to-date electronics in the styles known as Batida, Tarraxinha, Funana, Kuduro.

Can it really be almost 15 years since Hood released the brilliant ‘Cold House’? An album we were properly obsessed with for years, it marked the creative and commercial pinnacle for a band that perfectly brought together a love of brooding post-rock and bass-heavy electronic production, anchored by the exceptional songwriting and arranging skills of brothers Richard and Chris Adams. Hood haven’t released any new music for a decade, but both brothers have been musically active with a number of different projects, and Richard now returns with his latest work as The Declin… Read more

Dope, darkly tinted house trax hailing from Estonia, picked for release by Optimo's JD Twitch. It opens with the title track, a dreamy mix of druggy NYC swing and weirdly detached jazz licks which previously featured on a tape for Trash Can Dance. 'Falling' follows with an effervescent lather of keys and pendulous, booming groove but, it really gets going on the B-side with the bloody hard-to-resist swing and dip of 'The Addiction' there for dancers, and again on a deeper tip with the sparse but effective 'U Took My Love'.

Effectively bringing the project full circle to Mika Vainio's earlier 'Vandal' EP, the Swedish veterans of avant-garde and pop swagger balls-out with the crushing lurch of 'Leibniz' before tacking to more experimental arrangements with mutant Balearic chug of 'Ramon Llull' and the convulsive croaks and drones of 'Calculus' warranting comparisons with Nick Klein or Emptyset.

The all-too-brief original version of industrial proto-techno kicks and haunting atmosphere laced with an end-of-tether vocal is handily extended to twice the length in AM's faithful edit, before they really get to work on the remix with added Burroughs samples supplementing their whirring teutonic techno efficiency and clarity. Quite seriously, nobody else makes us want to dance quite like Ancient Methods.
