Review: After the way Dorian Blue Part 1 permeated through dance floors across the globe and shook listeners at their core, The Advent is back on Thema Recordings with an unrivaled return. His calescent energy has only grown with time, culminating in three interminable tracks of jacked body mechanics. Whether it's the hammering slapback of the A side or the signature electro-infused B side, there's nothing here for a tame dance floor. Seeing as these heaters begged to be thrown around as doubles, a series of locked grooves have been included for those with the skillset to match their collection. With everything resting easily around the 130 mark, the searing pressure of these productions is undeniable. The Advent cements his legacy once again with a record that is not for the faint of heart.
Review: For their latest must-have release, Steel City imprint Seven Hills has decided to explore the slim but uniformly impressive back catalogue of Airgoose, a short-lived project from Different Drummer co-founder Glyn Bush (AKA Biggabush, Lightning Head etc) and fellow Original Rockers/Rockers Hi-Fi member Richard Whittingham. First released way back in 1994, "Outernational Wah" is a slamming chunk of acid-laden, bass-heavy techno/house fusion laden with sweaty vocal samples, floor-shaking percussion and lo-fi, post-Bleep electronics. It comes accompanied by a cracking drum track ("Wah Beats") and the electro-influenced late night heaviness of 1995's "Programmable Rhythmer (Top Gear Mix)".
Review: Here is something we've been all waiting for! With some timeless releases on his back catalogue, Perlon and Hartchef Discos to name a few, Audio Werner is joining the mighty Sushitech family and finally releases his debut album!
There's always something brilliant and hypnotic about the groove of Audio Werner and this album takes the brilliant sound of the master even further, crossing between proper deep techno and the more shuffled rhythms that we love.
On A Different Note is a triple gatefold 12" with eight fresh and well produced tracks. Extreme quality from both Sushitech and Audio Werner, per usual... Essential release!
Review: Newcastle via London label Jaunt Records revisits its 10 year anniversary EP from 2017 with a series of great remixes by Inland, Jonas Kopp, Jasper Wolff & Maarten Mittendorff and Gian. This is the first of two EPs planned, and it offers up a timeless mix of heady techno and slick electro.
Berlin based Brit Inland tackles Jaunt resident Blackhall & Bookless's 'Spirit' and serves up a heavyweight wedge of warehouse techno. On the same side, Jonas Kopp flips 'Itria' into a sci-fi tinged bit of dub techno and long time studio partners Jasper Wolff & Maarten Mittendorff from Indigo Aera offer widescreen synth work and blissed out pads all tethered to rolling and rubbery drums. Gian's take on Stojche's track is a fantastically crisp and futurist piece of electro that will get anyone on their toes. This is a classy EP that showcases the sort of sounds you will hear on any Jaunt dance floor.
Review: For the second salvo in their "Secret Sun" series of unreleased 1990s techno tracks, O.C.D has plucked five superb cuts from the dusty DAT tapes of Scott Featherstone, a period producer who released one 12" as Beyond A Void way back in 1992. They've found some genuine gold, too, with the five previously unheard tracks offering a melodious and floor-friendly mixture of languid electro rhythms, shuffling breakbeats, tight techno drums, weighty bass, colourful lead lines, atmospheric ambient techno pads, subtle Yorkshire bleep motifs and lashings of sun-kissed deep house melodies. Highlights are plentiful throughout, though we're particularly enjoying the sub-heavy swing of "Dat007", the Motor City influenced brilliance of "Ecordes" and the clanking sci-fi futurism of "Cheeting" [sic].
Review: Since first emerging in the late 1980s, Peter Elmaloglou has been one of the mainstays of the Australian techno scene. Derrick May is a fan and has decided to offer Elmaloglou the opportunity to showcase his wares on Transmat. A-side "Set Me Free" offers up an impressive fusion of soft-touch European tech-house tropes (fluid, delay-laden synthesizer motifs, tactile beats etc.), Chicago style psychedelic acid lines and the kind of rumbling, elongated bass tones that were once a feature of Kevin Saunderson's late '80s/early '90s work as Reese. Over on side B, "Don't Stop" is undulating, hypnotic and minimalist in tone, with percussion that both hisses and clicks, while "Autumn Blues" sees him pepper a squeezable techno groove with heady ambient chords and glassy-eyed electronic lead lines.
