**The French synth-pop freaks return in colourful, spiky fashion** "Their new album ‘NO VOID’ is now being released on SHITKATAPULT, whose label slogan ‘Special Musick for Special People’ fits perfectly to the often euphorically rocking music of the French duo. DAT POLITICS themselves refer to their latest LP as a “hallucinating ride in a space roller coaster: scary and funny!” This time around, their songs took shape once again under influences outside of music such as astronomy, philosophy and programming language as well as surrealism, fantasy films and their own dreams.

Cat. Number: HDB090D

Hyperdub pull out a posthumous collection of unreleased DJ Rashad bangers. All tried and tested in the circle, they get wild in a variety of styles, from the discofied DJ Spinn hook-up, 'CCP2', and the soul-belting burn of 'Vause I Know U Feel' with Gant-Man, to the strobing Footwork hyper-funk of 'Ya Hot', feat. Taso, and the virulent blend of trapped siren stabs, palpitating subs and darkside D&B-style synth lashes in 'Do Not Fuck With', which could well be one of the most FWD, unique footwork cuts we've heard, no messing. R.I.P. Rashad.

Welting techno deviation from SP-X on the 2nd of 3 'Moving Through Mirrors' volumes. The whip-sharp ballstics of 'Out of the Trap' are primed to drive bodies wild with barrelling kicks and slashing synths that cut thru the mix with hydraulick warp effect. 'Spectrum Drift' works to a more even, rumbling keel offset with sandpaper claps and flying razor hi-hats.

Amsterdam's jazziest house cats return to the label they sparked off with two releases in 2009, only this time with peak, eye-fluttering club times in mind - giving up the goods in four parts they nod to classic Cajual and Glenn Underground styles between the sublime bounce of 'Down To The Roach' and its stripped dub, whereas 'Bean Bag Motel' checks out a stranger, jazzier vibe rife with wiggly, layered synths and 'Lights At Night' shows off with the dopest '80s Detroit styles.

Such A Feeling pulls out the stops and Mitsubishis with hoovers, Amen breaks and hardcore style pitched up vocals. Rounding it all of is Ready To Go, a grimey yet fun industrial grinder.

Clipped electro-house from Rob Clouth on his return to Leisure System, backed with Kowton and Vessels remixes. The original makes great use of a convulsive, dubstep-style toad tone wrapped to a swaggering IDM-boogie groove. Kowton's remix ruffs up the drums and spikes the atmospheres to lush, prickling effect, and Vessels (note the extra 's') knead the same elemebnts into a whirring tech-house wormhole.

Cat. Number: posh isolation 153

Syn-pop duo Rosen & Spydett make their vinyl debut on Denmark's Posh Isolation with a gorgeous, gauzy follow-up to a handful of early cassettes. Floating in a breezy, bright white space beyond Moon Wheel, Pye Corner Audio or Cold Cave, 'Fortuna' tends to a special brand of Scandinavian synth melancholy over 8 songs in just under 30 minutes. Detached drum machines clack and punch time from a distance beneath diaphanous, chiffon synth voice melodies that cascade and fizz like burned-out stars depicted in a fragile diorama. A lot of the romantic types are bound to be smitten with this one. Posh Isolation at their best.

Koehler conducts a mutant acid skank, backed with a cranky-assed remix by A Made Up Sound. Swedish producer Koehler's 3rd shot for Berceuse Heroique knuckles out grubby sub wobbles, twysted 303 drops and shanking chords like some lost Abi Shanti acid dub. On the flip, it feels like A Made Up Sound dragged the same track backwards thru a hedge, turning out like some wild-eyed and feral bashment acid attack sparked up with crushed breaks inna Ambush records fashion. Good stuff.

A natural album artist, Boris Bunnik a.k.a. Conforce returns to Delsin with the latest findings from his new Rotterdam lab. Ironically enough, considering he's moved from a coastal island to the city, 'Presentism' feels more pastoral, fluid than previous transmissions. Covering a silty spectrum of styles below the surface of Detroit techno-electro and A.I. electronica, he motions an ambiguous sound shot thru with a positive, almost joyful light between the astral synth voices and machine patter of 'Artefact from a Higher Dimension' to the wistful Martyian beach tones of 'Monomorphic' and ageless ambience of 'Predictive Flow'.

Alex Cobb, the soul behind the Taiga Remains alias and Students of Decay label, enchants with an expansive quartet of ghostly drone compositions in 'Chantepleure'. He sets a rarified, almost ecclesiastical air with the solemn poise of 'Prayer Ring', followed thru and expanded in the thicker layers of drone harmonics in melting from 'Anselin', whereas the more succinct arrangement of 'Disporting with a Shadow' acts as a sweeter, space-resetting palate cleanser for the intimate and glacially paced 16 minutes of shimmering harmonics in 'Path of Appearance'.

Glowering electro-techno styles from Ms. Hauff, making superb use of vocals for the first time on this teaser for her 'Discreet Desires' album. To be fair, we can't confirm the vocals are Helena's, but they certainly make a welcome change from her obtuse style. On 'Sworn to Secrecy Part II' she comes across as a cold gynoid, whispering like Victoria Lukas over distorted, bittersweet synth discord and serrated machine drum punctuation.

Clinical techno hypnosis conducted by Sweden's Peder Mannerfelt and Simon Haydo for Shifted's Avian label. This is some of the purest, most visceral Techno we've heard in a while, grappling with sheer frequencies and shifty patterns with a proper, bloody-minded focus. It more or less blends the best of both their worlds - Mannerfelt's uncanny studio skill and Haydo's sleek, purified dance tracks found on DEM. There's five cuts of finer wave functions oscillating between monotone jacks, rumbling rhythmic noise and EBM-tainted throbbers for the hardest-to-please experimental techno heads.

Mr Mitch's Gobstopper label releases one of its strongest yet with the new EP from Strict Face. It's another minimized Grime masterclass, 'Fountains' sounding like slowed down Eski meets "Moments in Love' - all emotive strings, lots of space and low-end synths that cut through it all to disorientating effect. 'Highbury Skyline' is more menacing and tough, still retaining that dizzying sonic separation that makes this new wave of Grime productions so compelling and fucking out there. Amazing EP this.

Blazing boogie grime funk from Matt Wizard, debuting on Mr. Mitch's brilliant Gobstopper Records. There's four cuts of the fruitiest purple funk curbed with a tuffer grime attitude, neatly holding back where the likes of Joker or Swindle would happily go overboard. Starting up with the Fairlight-sparked 2-step to halfstep slyde of 'Judge Reinhold', he amp the levels with a cut-up electro-grime-soul killer called 'Afraid', and lean back on that juicy summertime flex with 'Mathematical', beside the glancing DX7-styled chords and clipped funk of 'Smoke Signals'. A big tip for fans of Kode 9, Jam City, Hyetal, Her Records, Patrice & Friends.

Dark0 follows his Lost Codes debut with a lean, trancey grime session for Mr. Mitch's Gobstopper label. Like Slackk or Ikonika's forward styles, Dark0 fuses brittle 2-step/grime patterns with well-oiled, fluoro folk/road melodies in a distinctly UK fashion. However, unlike the aforementioned, his sound also errs close to Hybrid or Sasha-like prog arrangements, and if we're getting wavey in the club at 3am, it's got strobe appeal...
