Like bloody buses, Warp roll out another nugget from Aphex Twin with alternate versions of 'MARCHROMT30A Edit 2b' and 'XMAS_EVET1 N' off the Japanese and worldwide versions of 'Syro'. The first edit starts up sounding like Haswell spatterblatz before melting breaks and willowing chords across the synapsez with signature AFXian lushness, whereas the fast mix does it all again at a spannered 45rpm, resulting queerer, creamier tunings. The alternate mix of 'XMAS_EVET1 N' is half the length of the original, nipped and licked like some gem from ICBYD.

Warp charge a full battery of ruffneck, upfront dance music from Lisbon in the first of three killer 'Cargaa' volumes. It serves a crucial insight to the Príncipe label's roster and mix of Angolan rhythms with European techno memes, equally essential for newcomers and scene fiends alike. The term "Cargaa" itself is a local Gallician colloquialism for the buzz surrounding the scene, both at home and abroad, and neatly defines the sound's excited state. Scene founders DJ Marfox and DJ Nigga Fox both represent; the former with a bouncing bomb named 'Take Off', and the latter on … Read more

Edition of 500 copies pressed on lacquer-cut yellow vinyl with optional pop-out centre* There’s little doubt among anyone familiar with Max Tundra’s oeuvre that his early 2000’s releases for Domino kinda pre-empted the whole PC Music thing by a decade or so, all hi-sheen bubblegum pop rendered through obsolete digital technology, hooky as hell and just a little bit unsettling to boot.

Dorian Concept ropes in some heavyweight remixers to flip his 'Joined Ends' EP. Kuedo renders 'Ann River, Mn' as an aerial, nocturnal vision of piquant arpeggios and streaking vapours somewhere between Burial and Z'ev, while Border Community's Nathan Fake opens up 'Draft Culture' to nine minutes of wobbly radiophonic acid and glancing techno-jazz motifs. In Tim Hecker's hands 'The Sky Opposite' is elevated and expanded to a heady flux of gaseous harmonics and lilting melody only just anchored by rippling, golden gamelan tones, and Bibio hears 'Ann River, Mn' as a peeling piece of… Read more

F**k knows who they are or what fetid hole they came from, but we can tell you that 'The Descent (Chapter I)' is a pitch black piece of post-D&B/industrial ambient sludge of the calibre we crave.

While best known for his 4/4 bangers on Fifth Wall and Resin, this 12" reveals an experimental streak to be explored over forthcoming sessions with the forward-looking Project 13. A-side, 'Uildi' sparks up like a melted Sleeparchive with bleeps and bass falling off the grid in swanging syncopation whereas 'Merhige' tests out a drier reduction of dusty bass and agile drums recalling label-mate Acre.

Following the release of his seminal Hard Techno workout in 1997, Surgeon and Mick Harris revisited the material for this 'Remake' session. '(Intro) Version II' is reinforced with extra noise and viciously filtered strings while 'Krautrock (Version III)' loses the melody, ups the bass levels and reworks the rhtyhm according to a stricter agenda. Mick Harris meanwhile manipulates 'Waiting' as an uncomfortably sub-heavy halfstepper and 'Depart (Version II)' exercises Surgeon's more abstract dancefloor inclinations. Classic material.

Clinical techno hypnosis conducted by Sweden's Peder Mannerfelt and Simon Haydo for Shifted's Avian label.

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.
