- London Modular Alliance – Black Powder [Applied Rhythmic Technology]
Funky, chunky, entirely-analogue electro grooves with sub-rattling low end, quirky effects, and robotic aesthetics.
- Source Direct – Street Wars [Tempo Records]
The legendary pioneer of the “call-and-response” production technique returns with a sharp and techy stepper.
- Delay Grounds – Are We There Yet? [Lapsus Records]
A psychedelic, percussive, experimental techno/breakbeat crossover that combines rough drums with pitch-shifted vocals and washed-out pads.
- E-Dancer – Rock To The Beat (Special Request Remix) [Drumcode]
The legendary Paul Woolford dons his Special Request alias to remix the equally legendary Kevin Saunderson’s Detroit techno classic, giving it a contemporary edge without losing the original’s soul.
- Chris Stussy – A Glimmer of Hope [Kaoz Theory]
The Amsterdam-based producer channels the soul of New York on this lush deep house cut.
- Stef Mendesidis – Wurlitzer Machinery [Klockworks]
Deep, grinding techno driven by a warm, consistent chord sequence from the classic eponymous electronic organ.
- CYRK – Intergalactic Refugees [CHILDHOOD]
Spaced-out, wiggly electro funk that gives a loving nod to the early Detroit pioneers.
- Geistech – Presente (Johnny Aux Mix) [Science Cult]
Densely packed with detail, this low-slung, hazy slice of electronica rewards multiple listens.
- RQ – Bunker [none60]
One for the deep heads, RQ channels early Photek with tight, steppy drums, chunky bass stabs, and subtle atmospherics.
- Marco Shuttle – Through The Cobalt Desert [Incienso]
Field recordings blended with modular synthesis, drum machines, effects and analogue oscillators to create a spaced-out, ritualistic rhythm.
- Jeroen Search – The Foot Of The Centaur [Axis/The Escape Velocity]
Swirling, dusty pads snake around a driving TR-909 groove, creating just the right amount of tension for this sci-fi techno trip.
- Hassan Abou Alam – Cluttered [Needs]
A dusty, bleeped-out breakbeat roller from the fast-rising Egyptian artist.
- Ladymonix – The Nerve [Frizner Electric]
Equal parts dancefloor ready and deeply heady, this is a delicious blend of warm chords, soulful vocals, and wobbly acid.
- Argy – Damanhur (Loew Remix) [Renaissance Records]
Harking back to the golden era of progressive breaks, this beautiful, uplifting journey is a perfect set closer.
- Mark E – Rain [18437 Records]
One of the finest purveyors of deep and atmospheric house music delivers another classy journey of synth pads and warm chords.
- Random Alias – Automat [Breakfast On Mars]
Tense, ethereal electro with just the right amount bite.
- Jolly Mare – Il Capriccio [International Feel]
Sounding like something from a one-man band from the late Seventies conferring with a studio wizard from the 2020s, the multi-instrumentalist’s opus is a Balearic treat.
- Tim Reaper & Kloke – Tensity [TempoCore]
The first release from the Tempo Records sub-label delivers mesmerising, deep jungle that combines elements of past, present, and future.
- KETTAMA – Move Like Vibert [Steel City Dance Discs]
Stomping, euphoric breakbeat with huge sub bass hits and some cheeky sampling of a classic LFO tune.
- Cluster Lizard – Multibalance And Immensity | Різновага I Невимірність
Inspired by the 1971 book “Star Corsair” by Ukrainian science fiction writer Oles Berdnyk, the multidisciplinary duo deliver a grinding, psychedelic, and cinematic piece of machine music.
