Listen to the last ten ‘tunes of the moment’

Blanck Mass - Rhesus Negative
Mon 13 Mar 2017 | permalink
Sit down and fasten yourself in before the musical tornado Rhesus Negative from Benjamin John Power, aka Scottish producer Blanck Mass, hits — it's a heartstopping, breathstealing shock to the system!
It's the second track from his new release World Eater, out on Sacred Bones, and it kind of jumps straight in without warning and then exits stage left unexpectedly; so it's best appreciated in the context of the other six tracks on the album, which I can heartedly recommend.
Time Traveler - Chapter V: Chronicles from 1957
Wed 1 Mar 2017 | permalink
Sure, everyone deserves a second chance, so if you didn't get your finger out when I included Time Traveler's I'm Made Of Stars / Journal in my favourite music from 2016 (read the album review here), then now's the time to make amends and be blinded by the beautiful brute force of his latest chronicles EP.
Chapter V: Chronicles from 1957 is a four tracker dedicated to his mother Anna Maria, and while it may not present the same range of light and shade as his album, if no holds barred Techno is your thing, like the track Stardust (from the album), then the uncompromising beats combined with the menacing vocal (on A1) will surely satisfy.
The EP is out on 7th March via his own Chronicles Diary imprint.
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.
