Spekter - Pipe Bomb [Sound Signature]

A - Pipe Bomb

Collossal darkside jacker's grooves on Sound Signature! Your man from Chicago, Spekter, has appeared on some ace sides for Sistrum and Downbeat to date, before passing this tune to Theo Parrish who promptly signed it up for Sound Signature.

Legowelt - Sark Island Acid [Lies]

A - Sark Island

B1 - Backwood Fantasies

B2 - Sea Of Nuhuhu(Tape version)

Always telling stories with his songs the prolific Danny Wolfers' latest offering the "Sark Island Acid" EP once again brings the listener into his shadowy world where the sounds of Chicago and Detroit meld with a demented dreamworld in which woodland creatures attempt space travel, lonely middle-aged men cast off by society perform circuit bending experiments in their parents suburban basement and autistic fans of late night talk radio call in from the outer-reaches to discuss world politics. Three tracks with the A-side being the bubbling, subduded and beautiful title track Sark Island Acid and the B-side containing the smudged out 808 ghetto compression of Backwoods Fantasies and the epic piano driven Sea of Nuhuhu.

A - Juju & Jordash - Avian oasis

B - Downbeat - Solaris

First release of Downbeat Black label, the sublabel of Downbeat dedicated to slow 4x4 house/electronics. Juju & Jordash provide Avian Oasis, an exquisite and delicate 4x4 piece with a special guest: an old Hohner Melodica that envelopes the track in mystery. On the other side, Solaris. A complex sci-fi soundtrack full of field recordings in continuous movement made by Downbeat illness.

Objekt - Objekt 2

A - Track1

B - Track2

Objekt drops the tempo and ups the Techno element for a killer second release on his/her eponymous imprint. Each side is demarcated by what might be a title in the run-out groove. A-side 'I See Sound' feeds us through a passage of cold, ricocheting delays and skittering dub stabs before precipitating Hood-esque hi-hats and propulsive kicks shackled to haughty snares. With adroit EQ'ing the track continues to wink and tease until a fully fledged final Chicago jack-out. B-side, 'Where I See Numbers' swings in that teched-out Untold style, but with a more wide-open Berlin atmosphere.

Lory D - Strange Days Vol 1 [Numbers]

A - Acidronix

B - Acid Prastix

The original Italian Techno badboy presents the first in a series of hugely promising releases for NMBRS. Unless you've been asleep for the last two decades, you should know by now that Lory D has one of the most distinctive styles in Techno, or electronic music at large. These two are up there with owt he's released on Rephlex or his own Sounds Never Seen label. 'Acidronix' is a relatively brief dose of marbled acid jack, applying that uniquely sheer electro resonance to an eternally tweaking, snakey-sleazin' TechnoHouse special. 'Acid Prastix' is where he really gives the full brunt of his sound, teasing it in with the squelchiest, splashiest synths before expertly layered drum machine rolls pin you to the spot like his voodoo marionette.

Hardfloor feat. E.R.P - You know the score (Boris Divider remix)

Versalife - Night Time Activities Part 2 [Clone West Coast Series]

A1 - Unclear Matter

A2 - Electronic Suspect

B1 - Night Time In The Computer Labs

B2 - Observing The Outland

Versalife's N.T.A. part 2 is taking us further down deep into the night! This is some of the at widest, cleanest, most absorbing electro, techno tracks we've heard in a while! Especially the b-side tracks oozes twilight suave and atmosphere with its precise electro pulse and caressing midnight sounds. Versalife is creating a setting with sounds radiating the midnight atmosphere that reflects the twin peak-esque life on a almost deserted windy dutch coastal island where the clouds rush through the dark night time skies projecting all variations of grey and black on the mystifying dunes. Futuristic electro techno tracks with emotive synth work created with exploratory imagination.

Juniper - Theories [Underground Quality]

A1 - Fate Conspired

A2 - In The Interest Of Time

B1 - Pushed Away

B2 - Rhetorics

Underground Quality reaches release number forty with four tracks from Mancunian duo Juniper fully demonstrating the international reach of Jus-Ed's imprint. The Theories EP is a debut set from Juniper (not counting their lo-fi punk past) and fits in snugly alongside the rest of the UQ roster with "Fate Conspired" opening proceedings in languid style - simmering atmospherics sit deep beneath gloopy pads and crispy patterns that demonstrate Juniper like their drums. Following this "In The Interest Of Time" is far more experimental in tone, twisting expertly between delicate soundscapes and insistent Detroit rhythms - the whole track punctuated by vocal samples discussing concepts of reality. Both "Pushed Away" and "Rhetorics" provide a more upward slant on contemporary deepness and demonstrate the versatility of Juniper's sonic palette.

A1 - People

A2 - Rough Piano 002

Kassem Mosse - Musical Generics [Mikrodisco]

A - 7 pm

B - 7 am

The 7th release on Mikrodisko delivers the perfect concept for the dissolution of the antagonism between original and replica with Kassem Mosse’s “Musical Generics”. The two tracks on offer, namely “7pm” and “7am”, showcase two very different aspects to the German producer’s aresnal, with the former touching on the deeply melodic end of techno, while the latter offers a tense.

Tevo Howard - Pandora's Box [Hour House Is Your Rush]

1 - Pandora's Box (Hope mix)

2 - Spend Some Time (Underground mix)

3 - The Promenade

4 - The Instruction (acid mix)

5 - Autumn Spell (Top Shelf September mix)

6 - Confusion

7 - Intersection

8 - Spend Some Time (pop mix)

Ranging from melodic to a bit heavier work this Tevo album is an ideal little update to your house collection. Lots of Chicago and a well sized portion of acid in it!
Tevo Howard keeps delivering the goods! After his 'Crystal Republic' EP from last year, Tevo's follow up for Hour House Is Your Rush is the 8 track 'Pandora's Box'. A release on which Tevo experiments with different rhythms and textures, which results in a varied set of tracks, from classic Chicago acid house to more Italo leanings. All carry Tevo's, by now, trademark sound.

Scott Grooves - Scott Grooves White Label Of The Month [Unknown Label]

A - Track1

B - Track2

New 12″ with no information or song titles, simply called “Scott Grooves White Label Of The Month.” The A-Side has an energetic techno track while the B-Side is a grimey, acidic drum workout.

Myriadd - Beyond This Life [Creme Organization]

1 - Beyond This Life

2 - A Hazy Memory

3 - Keep On Searching

4 - The Outer Limits

Surprise release by a mysterious UK producer. Sweet and dripping wet Chicago House beats that are as timeless as they are fitting with current trends.

Chicago Shags - Lost In A Blue Night [Creme Organization]

1 - Irrational Excess

2 - Disorderly Orchard

3 - Lost In A Blue Night

4 - South-Side Will Rise (TLR edit)

New Shags! Typically retarded but strangely enticing Chi-Haya house that swings like a tit. Produced by an auxiliary member of the New Kids Turbo and his socially challenged compadre from the Coastal region.

DJ Yoav B - Wisdom Traxx [Meakusma]

A1 - Wisdom Bop

A2 - Electricité

B1 - Sunset Glow Disko

B2 - Wisdom Box (Protect-U remix)

After releasing some highly acclaimed records on Delsin Tel Aviv-based Yoav B. releases three new tracks on the Belgian meakusma label. Gently rubbing shoulders with Detroit Techno (the way Anthony Shakir produces it) and HipHop, built on crazy loops and raw rhythms, the tracks are enhanced with psychedelic and playful sounds, that give them the feeling of being in continuous flux and movement. The mood here is absorbing yet ambivalent. On top of this, Protect-U, from the fantastic Future Times camp, delivers a remix, pulling the music away from reality, firmly aiming it for the universe. With a mid-tempo House feeling, a crispy bassline and abstract synthesizer pattern.

Xdb - Bakform [Harbour City Sorrow]

B1 - Wentap

XDB (Kosta Athanassiadis, Metrolux, Sistrum) is walking on the border of various styles, creating his own unique blend of techno and house.

Borngraber & Struver - Urlaub [M=Minimal]

A1 - Reise

B1 - Berlin Tribal Music

B2 - Dancing Queen

Having recently dropped that essential reissue of Conrad Schnitzler's Ballet Statique, M=minimal serve up a fresh set from modern day kraut standard-bearers Borngraber & Struver. "Kosmische" these days tends to be shorthand for fluffy synth ambience, but B&S invoke the more rhythmic, pulsation-prone practitioners of 70s German electronic music, and more power to 'em for it. 'Reise' is a hugely satisying 21st century update of Schnitzler et al's sleek machine minimalism, sweeping Blade Runner synths and dubbed-out piano chords underscored by a robust techno kick - building to a truly intense denoument ,you could see this jam going down a treat on the dancefloors of the world's deeper, darker club spots. 'Berlin Tribal Music' sounds like Neubauten and Swans soundtracking a Michael Mann chase scene, while 'Dancing Queen' is thumping, mid-paced disco-prog with an unbelievable thump, up-down arpeggios and swampy strings - wonderfully over-the-top, like Goblin if they'd made it in Hollywood. And with so many artists who share B&S's interests favouring a lo-fi idiom, it's refreshing to hear music so unashamedly crisp, full-bodied and frankly state-of-the-art in its production values.

Lando Kal - Further [Hotflush]

A - Further

B - Time Out

Lando Kal, best known as half of Lazer Sword, steps forth with a cyber-fresh solo debut. Face-first, 'Further' tucks into HD hyper-step mode, swinging on an original US Garage rhythm buffed with silicon-fine finish and robo-dextrous edits for cutting-edge appeal. Turn it over and 'Time Out' embarks on some more discombobulated business, synching the groove between flickering, Juke-like drum timbres and full-sunken, batty-swiping subs before an aquatic 4/4 resolution and back to the twysted roll-out. Most notably, he's put his own uniquely cyber-spacious and tricky spin on a well tried style, and in the end sounds like himself.

Linkwood - From The Vaults Pt. 1 [Prime Numbers]

A1 - Dirty Love

B1 - Untitled 1

B2 - Untitled 2

Following his widely acclaimed debut album and remixes for Appleblim and Tornado Wallace, Edinburgh's Linkwood plucks three idiosyncratic analogue House grooves for Trus'me's Prime Numbers. Face up you'll find the disco-pumped 'Dirty Love' workout full of sprightly keys and proper shifting rhythms that Pepe Braddock would be proud of. Flipside it's a luxuriously deep affair, with beautifully moody, woozy Detroit chords and sub-clad kicks on 'Untitled 1' and the masterful mid-tempo pace of 'Untitled 2' with its cascade of ethereal, dubbed-out organ and deep, grumbling bass played to brilliantly trippy effect.

Betek - U Funking Confuse Me [Balans]

Up next on Balans is a Brazilian old school house & techno talent extraordinaire, Betek. Hailing from beautiful Rio De Janeiro, you might not expect an artist who is dedicated to old school Roland drumcomputers and bassline machines. Betek clearly has a big love for the the EDM past, but takes it well into the new millennium with a fresh angle.

Reggie Dokes - Once Again [Clone Royal Oak]

A1 - Haiti

A2 - God Of House

B1 - Once Again (Morning Factory remix)

Reggie Dokes returns to his second home... Clone Royal Oak, with 3 tracks. Emotional and passioned house tracks that come straight from the heart! Raw, unpolished music... just as we like it! Title track Once Again has received a remix treatment by two young dutch producers called Morning Factory. These guys show the same passion for their productions as Reggie, and they delivered a great edit version that added some extra energy to the original mix (which is not on this record... might come later).
