Lockertmatik - Interlock 4
Mon 20 Feb 2017 | permalink
Following up on the recent post about how awesome the whole Lockertmatik EP is, the fourth track perfectly captures melodic Techno in all its finery. Don't hold back on this one.

Varg - Champagne Ceremonies
Thu 19 Jan 2017 | permalink
Prolific Swedish producer Varg, aka Jonas Rönnberg, has announced the third part in his ongoing Nordic Flora series: The Nordic Flora Series Pt 3, Gore-Tex City is due for release on 27th March through Northern Electronics and Posh Isolation. Following hot on the heels of his RA recommended EP Nordic Flora Pt. 1: Heroine and monumental album Nordic Flora, Pt. 2, en Ros röd som Blod, the third part sees collaborations with Yung Lean, Alessandro Cortini, Drew McDowell and Chloe Wise.
Here's a taster from the new album, opening track Champagne Ceremonies, with a suitably dark video made by Paps Loco, aka Oscar Byström and Elias Bergkvist.
NGLY - Strange Expression

Convextion - New Horizon
Tue 20 Dec 2016 | permalink
The album was released in the summer yet I keep coming back to this particular track from Gerard Hanson's last long player 2845 as Convextion. Even at 16 minutes long, New Horizon never outstays it's wecome, it's one of of those tracks that could go on and on without tedium ever bearing its gnashers.
Monoloc - The Untold Way
Wed 23 Nov 2016 | permalink
Monoloc (Sascha Borchardt) makes the kind of Techno I'm really into at the moment, a blend of off-dancefloor beats, murky textures and flecks of dub and ambient magic. The title track The Untold Way, from his sophomore album (out on Dystopian) is simply perfection.
B12 - Play With Me
Wed 16 Nov 2016 | permalink
Steve Rutter, aka B12, has been on fine form since forging ahead on his own. Following on from BrokenUnBroken earlier this year, his new EP All Abandon All, for Central Processing Unit, is another blinder. Play With Me mixes a killer bassline with a swoozy synth line.
Call Super - Puppet Scene

EP out now on Houndstooth.
Mooryc - Bad Luck
Thu 27 Oct 2016 | permalink
Maurycy Zimmermann is back with his gorgeous electronic pop as Mooryc. Third album Wiped Out is the perfect antidote to all that grinding, pummelling Techno my brain filters on a daily basis. Simply put, it's the finest acoustic, electro-Pop.
I've chosen Bad Luck as a Tune of the Moment:
And here's the album, courtesy of Bandcamp. Lap it up:
Illum Sphere - Thousand Yard Stare
Thu 20 Oct 2016 | permalink
After the excellent Second Sight, I've been looking forward to more Illum Sphere. So based on Thousand Yard Stare, a taster from his new album, Glass, due out on 4th November (on Ninja Tune), I'm pleased to say, I think we're in for a treat. Beautiful!
