Superb mix of Techno and mad tunes by Chippy Nonstop.Noted, 01 Dec 2021, 18:49
Slam + Rebekah - Believe In The Night
Goodness me do these Slam boys know how to write a banging Techno tune! Their recent Louder Than Chaos series of collaborations has been exemplary so far, with particular highlights from Hector Oaks and Perc. This two-tracker with Rebekah is the third of five releases in the series and Believe In The Night is another highlight, tipping the balance by a baw-hair towards the headphone listener.
Louder Than Chaos Vol. 3 is out on Friday 26th November via Soma Records. Slam will be teaming up with Amelie Lens and AnD for the last two EPs in the series.
JP Enfant - Muzieklokaal
Pleasant, upbeat and melodic track from former Trouw/De School resident JP Enfant, lifted from forthcoming EP Somewhere Else.

bastinov - Origine
Decent EP from the Italian maker comprising five originals and a couple of remixes (from VNTM and Paride Saraceni). Closing track Attitudine Mentale is a memorable, high energy, Breakbeat-tastic affair with a cool vocal sample but my fav is opening statement and title track Origine, with its cold, dark Techno heart, all murky and minimal.
EP is released on Dutch label Infinite Depth on 24th September.
Slam launch a new series on Friday this week called Louder Than Chaos. The first of five volumes features collaborations with 999999999, Hector Oaks and Optic Nerve (aka Keith Tucker). Future releases will see the Glaswegian duo work with Amelie Lens, Rebekah, AnD and Perc.
Markus Suckut - Promised Land
Four fine Techno cuts make up Markus Suckut's new EP Blurred Memories I but Promised Land is my highlight (Eyes comes a close second though).
Balrog - Run For Cover
Pulverising industrial beats from the Yorkshire Techno head Balrog, with Run For Cover, the lead track from his EP of the same name

Extrawelt - Jetzt Neu: Alles Wie Früher
Splendid speaker splitting sounds from the German duo. Taken from their new EP of the same name
Ross Harper - eFunk
The British producer continues his run of recent EPs with eFunk, another tour de force of funky, shifting Techno. The title track is the clear winner though with an enjoyably insistent thump to the rhythm.
Chlär - We Will Bring It Back
Pumping Techno and Rave vibes from the Swiss artist's recent EP Sacrificed Generations on Lobster Theremin, absolute banger.
