Our resident selector Andrew Wowk drops his top 11 for November
#1. Latmos – Momentum Shift [Blacklabel Distillery]
Dark, hypnotic techno that pairs slowly evolving sine waves and washed-out atmospherics with a driving bassline groove.
#2. Glenneth – Circular [Maquette]
A beautiful slice of warm, melodic electronica that feels like a cross between John Hopkins and James Holden while also having a unique, personal touch.
#3. Posthuman – Nightride to New Reno [Balkan Vinyl]
Always finding new ways to make the classic TB-303 sound fresh and interesting, the UK duo offer up a vision of a dark, dystopian future with this stripped-down, squelchy ride.
#4. Forriner – 17:17 Neon (Bird of Paradise Remix) [Forriner Music]
Powerful, low-slung, experimental club music that takes cues from New Beat, EBM, and early electro.
#5. Avatism – Ate-Up [Vakant]
The only word that can really do this distorted, grimy breakbeat monster any justice is “filth.”
#6. Sebo K – Nebula [Rekids]
The German master of deep, soulful house grooves flips the script with this lush, enveloping electro trip.
#7. Shlømo – Suicide Ghost [Taapion]
Injecting an IDM sensibility into his trademark heavy, heady techno, Shlømo creates an atmosphere that is both inviting and unnerving.
#8. Nocow – Leto [Rekids]
The Russian newcomer evokes memories of 90’s rave “chill out rooms” with this uplifting, other-worldly journey through shuffling breakbeats, warm basslines, and sunny chords.
#9. Eversines – Verwar [De Lichting]
A highlight from the mammoth Twee compilation, this is smooth, spacey breakbeat at its best.
#10. BNJMN – Theta Wave [Delsin]
Doing its name justice, Theta Wave is a psychedelic, introspective techno cut that utilises a subtly evolving loop to excellent effect.
#11. Kassian – The Premise [Heist Recordings]
Funky, soulful house with a catchy Rhodes hook and classy vocal sample.
