Lone rounds off his Ambivert Tools EP series with one of his most addictive, catchiest tunes yet.
Ancient Methods - Walking On Cursed Soil (feat. Prurient)
Thu 11 Oct 2018 | permalink
The Jericho Records is one hell of a stomping, cardiac-inducing Techno album from Michael Wollenhaupt aka Ancient Methods and the track Walking On Cursed Soil (feat. Prurient) is one of many highlights.
The Field - Made Of Steel, Made Of Stone
Thu 27 Sep 2018 | permalink
Opening track from the new album Infinite Moment is a beauty. Made Of Steel, Made Of Stone transforms the elements anyone familiar with The Field's previous work will recognise, like the manipulated female vocal loop, and filters them through a kind of Ambient process. And while there's still a steady accompanying rhythm, the result is a monumental slab of dreamy, emotive escapism.
Djedjotronic - Are Friends Electric (feat Lokier)
Mon 17 Sep 2018 | permalink
Paula Temple & Eomac - Gestirn
Sat 25 Aug 2018 | permalink
Gestirn: now this is powerful Techno that both rouses and reassures, leaving a mournful waft of melancholy in its wake. Paula Temple and Eomac join forces for a two track release on Eotrax, due out on 28th September.
Bjarki - 3-1 Tap Lush
Tue 31 Jul 2018 | permalink
Taken from Nina Kraviz’s recent трип label compilation, Don’t You Mess With Cupid, 'Cause Cupid Ain’t Stupid. 3-1 Tap Lush is a wondrous track from Icelander Bjarki. From the press release:
mistuned bells and distressed vocals flurry around cold stabs on a disorienting journey
... which only hints at the magic to behold. Just don't try to tell me Bjarki made this track without the use of recreational drugs.
Blawan - Careless
Wed 11 Jul 2018 | permalink
Doing what he does best: banging Techno with personality and flair, the new Blawan album Wet Will Always Dry is a scorcher! I could have picked any of the eight tracks for Tune of the moment but opted for Careless because it's the perfect example of his work; not many producers in his field can make Haute Techno™ to this standard.
Opening with a driving bass drum and a building tension, we get a weird manipulated sound battered into the perfect loop (which fades in and out for the tracks duration) before a dubby vocal refrain, hazily chanting the title, provides the perfect hook. Fantastic stuff.
Dez Williams - Hexciya
Sat 16 Jun 2018 | permalink
There's a lovely retrospective vibe to the subtle Electro bass on opening track Failnot that reminds me of Soma Records output from around early to mid 2000 (artists like Vector Lovers, Silicone Soul and Slam). More of the same follows with Familiar Circumstances which plays a spooky melody through an Acid filter. Hexciya is the highlight with its thumping bass drum, which manages to scratch my itch in the same way Anthony Rother's recent Omnitronic did. Swollen closes things out with a little Techno seasoning.
