In a monthly series, our in-house selector Andrew Wowk lists his top 10 essential picks for the month.
#1. Memorial Home – Silver (AWB Remix) [Rapid Eye Movement]
Deep, hypnotic, and soulful techno that will take dancefloors onto a trip into the deepest recesses of their consciousness and back again.
#2. Will Saul & Tee Mango Present Primitive Trust – Tejon (Tee Mango’s Dub) [Aus Music]
A blissful bit of swinging summertime house music that expertly combines elements of Detroit and New York with a Latin edge.
#3. 1954 – Colored Lies [Project: Mooncircle]
Razor-sharp drums and dark, grimy bass are offset by melancholy monophonic synths in this twisted-yet-beautiful slice of future beats.
#4. Iakovos – Evil Flower [Bliq]
Driving, snappy electro beats snake around reverbed vocal snippets, gritty analogue bass stabs and creepy pads.
#5. H4L – Hell For Leather [Astray]
A killer leftfield electronica/techno hybrid that utilises skittering beats, choppy percussion, and grainy synths to excellent effect.
#6. Marcus Worgull – Skango [Innervisions]
Deep house meets dub in this warm, chilled-out ride complete with loads of tape delay and big sub bass hits.
#7. Earth Boys – Big Time (Khotin’s Omega Trek Mix) [Public Release]
Uplifting pianos, sparkling atmospherics, filtered breakbeats, and squelchy 303’s – what more do you need?
#8. Kromestar & Danny Scrilla – Like Thunder [Library Music]
Proper dubstep flavours: Growling, thudding sub bass, reverbed percussion, and plenty of space between the beats.
#9. Textasy – Blow Your Head [Craigie Knowes]
An absolutely absurd 90’s rave breaks revival banger. Check the vocal samples from numerous rave classics and the face-melting acid lead.
#10. Yotam Avni – Avka [Stroboscopic Artefacts]
A subtle, spaced-out trip through crunchy metallic percussion, tribal rhythms, and otherworldly synths.
