The artist fka Ovuca works around jacking and raving techno patterns within the Colundi Sequence tuning framework for one of the series’ strongest additions
Recalling everything from Mika Vainio’s early Ø classics to vintage AFX and Mike Dred’s Kosmik Kommandos, this is a super strong batch of psychedelic dance music for the aerobic mystics. Proper tangy flavours for all trippy ravers.
Industrial techno from Aussie boscher Tymon Balakirev for the Perc Trax stronghold

Plaid shows flashes of their timeless appeal in a pair of rude but sweet, offbeat dancefloor aces for Warp
On ’Maru’ they follow a fine transition from dry but rhythmelodic drums thru glacially layered pads into piquant, melodic sequences and keening harmonies with hypnotic style shy of anything too tricksy or show-off.
