Established in 1969 by former sculpture student and Joseph Beuys alumnus, Conrad Schnitzler, together with Dieter Moebius and Hans-Joachim Roedelius, Kluster grew out of West Berlin's Zodiac Free Arts Lab to generate a commune of groups also including Tangerine Dream and Eruption (who are retrospectively k… Read more

'Lonely At The Top' is a suitably bleary-eyed awakening, feeling as if it's attempting to comprehend the rapid glut of information in the waking world, and failing to do so - opting for a massive spliff instead and allowing it all to smudge in by osmosis. Ok, so in the intervening years Lukid did usher out two singular 12"s of deconstructed House and Techno on his Glum label, both marking a distinct shift from his… Read more

After his posh disco LP 'Neon Dreams' for PMR, L-Vis gets down and dirty again with 'Club Constructions Volume 1' for Night Slugs. Ruggedly stripped down and spiked with the purest dancefloor juice, these five tracks look to classic Chicago templates for inspiration, much in the same way Bok Bok did with Tom Trago on 'Night Voyage Too Kit'. Between the relentless spank of 'Workout', the Poindexter-esque banger 'Video Drone', 'Rubber Crash's metallic percolations and the fibrillating funk of 'Hard Drive' or 'Girl Clap', this is Class A dancefloor material through and through.

P'raps best known as the keyboardist for La Roux, Fort Romeau presents himself as purveyor of deep, raw yet glamorous House music with his 100% Silk debut. 'Kingdoms' is well informed by late '80s and early '90s Chi-House, as heard from a knowing 2012 stance; there's basslines and misty mixing trickery that's belies its modern production. But the vibe is faithfully vintage. It's late night music for misty dancefloors, from the swooning sensuality of 'Jack Rollin' to the supple, sublime vocal house of 'Say Something' accompanied by blissful moments like 'Nights Bridge' and the dub-lathered tenderness of 'One Night'. A very strong look, recommended to the lovers!

R&S sublabel Apollo rolls out another dark garage ride. It's Volor Flex and Encode's debut for the label, imparting three tracks of dusty, Burial-inspired 2-step and dread rave dystopia. 'City Pressure' wears its influences proudly, from the woodblock snares to the slithering poltergeist strafes and brooding subbass movements, and again 'The Conspiracy' goes toe-to-toe with demonic synth slashes and tussling 2-step syncopation in killer style. Gone dolo, Volor Flex plays a more atmospheric card with the lamenting mood of 'About You'. To be fair it's highly derivative, but quite honestly one of the best Burial impersonations we've heard yet.

Sturdy three track serving from Sigha on the mighty Blueprint. Man has obviously had his nose to the grindstone since his run of twelves on Hotflush, honing an intensely driven and shark-eyed sound for this strong new EP. Covering the A-side, the adamantium-laced kicks and nagging metallic hook of 'I Am Apathy, I Am Submission' feel more raved-up than his usual style, and sound all the better for it. Shifting further towards EBM territory, 'The Black House' rolls with a leather-clad, jackal-grinning bassline and mesmerising acidic tweaks, while 'Between Here And Yesterday' tips out on a tensely pure and monotone aesthetic. Potent.
