  1. Done Away (7:46)
  2. EF40 (6:25)
  3. Don't Block The Box (7:34)
Review: Releases on Dolly offshoot Dolly Dubs are infuriatingly infrequent, but when they do appear they're invariably excellent. This latest offering - the first for 12 months - is predictably impressive. It's Martyn's second contribution to the series, and his first EP of 2015. There's naturally much to set the senses tingling, from the wobbly analogue bass, dreamy pads and loose, rave-era house breakbeats of flipside "Don't Block The Box", to the pitched-down jungle rhythms, bittersweet chords and notable bass of opener "Done Away". The swinging, spooky and downright chilling "EF40" is pretty darn tasty, too.

  1. DJ Spider - "Demon Seed"
  2. DJ Spider - "Mind Field"
  3. Grey People - "Deep Friday"
  4. Grey People - "Too Much Relevance"
Review: Introducing the new vinyl only label, Public System Recordings, co run by Matthieu Foltyn and Eric Strykert. The first release is a split series Ep from DJ Spider and Grey People. Starting off the EP; DJ Spider's 'Mind Field' offers a percussive drum riff, warm synths, and a slight off beat rhythmic intensity that moulds together perfectly. Next on Spider's side is 'Demon Seed ' an intense journey utilizing deep stabbing Kicks, delayed snares, whistling synths, and finishes with a soft subtle chant. Flipping the record; Grey People enters into the well familiar analogue techno spectrum. 'Deep Friday' builds up with short stabbing cords, flickering snares and a spooky vocal. 'Too Much Relevance' is a rough acid Chicago throw back. Don't let this one slip!!

  4. Dissonance's Technique (6:04)
Review: The second release on FINA White is a four tracker from rising Barcelona producer and former RBMA attendee Clip! Diverse releases on Discomaths, Classicworks, Sweat Taste and JD Records, coupled with his signature 'hardware only' live shows have really put Clip! on the map locally and throughout Europe. Key to his sound is a shifting style and impressive knowledge of sound design, displayed on this Brotherhood EP though four pure and unadulterated peak time cuts. There's a real menace to the bassline, low end throb and razor hats of the title track, whilst "R36" showcases the fusion of sounds Clip! can attain in his productions. On the flip side, "Forward" is, surprise, a no messing, relentlessly percussive banger whilst "Dissonance's Technique" heads down an equally straight-up, rough n' ready path.

Review: A fifth saunter through the '90s archives of Anthony Child arrives courtesy of the man's own SRX label, presenting some prime Surgeon material newly remastered by Dubplates & Mastering engineer Christoph Grote-Beverborg. As the title suggests, this 12" draws from Childs' techno experiments circa 1995 and Surgeon fanatics should focus on the two variations of "THX 1139" that originate from a limited and highly prized white label. Complementing these is the pounding minimalist loop techno of "Fivo" and "Paggo" with this latter track sounding so very clean in comparison to the scratchy Youtube videos for its original 12" release on a split with Funk D'Void.

  1. Burnt (6:11)
  2. Hard To Breathe (6:44)
Review: If the smiley face clad centre label wasn't a sizeable enough clue, Happy Family is a new project from New York staples Eric Duncan and Justin Vandervolgen which sees the pair try their hand at acid house. Both are closely associated with disco edits of course, but if you've seen either DJ you'll know they are well up on all forms of dance music. This expertise is deployed perfectly on the two tracks here, with "Burnt" a relentless exercise in strobelit 303 madness that is a no brainer for the sweatiest part of a DJ set. They tone it down a bit on "Hard To Breathe" which despite the title is an altogether looser production with plenty of room between the tumbling drums and hypnotic lead synth lines.

Review: The Peer Pressure EP from the under-rated Mark Forshaw finds Scenery Records once again highlighting the rich strain of local production talent in the Liverpool area. Involved in the Merseyside scene since the '90s, Forshaw has released on labels like Mathematics, Tabernacle and Apartment and is also a member of Phantom Planet Outlaws with John Heckle and Binny. If you've checked Forshaw's prior output you will be happy with Peer Pressure as soon as the grubby, jacked up house of the title track hits its groove, with his four other cuts heading down a similarly unpredictable path. Kudos to Scenery for seeking out Swedish producer Daniel Andreasson to remix the title track too! This is another no nonsense EP from Scenery that is lovably rugged and unpredictably creative.

Review: Few producers have been quite as influential in shaping the Dystopian sound as label co-founder Mike 'Rodhad' Bierbach. He was responsible for the imprint's first two releases in 2012, and returned last year with the undeniably spooky Red Rising EP. This time round, he seems more inspired by the near endless sprawl of the universe, giving sublime opener "Im Glanz Des Mondes" a classic intergalactic techno feel. While "Kinder Der Ringwelt" itself is dark, moody and hypnotic, and "Planet Der Verlorenen" is unashamedly creepy, there's plenty of beauty to be found in "Venusianische Holle". It's the aural equivalent of drifting through space, alone with your thoughts.

Review: The latest release from Untilmyheartstops sees the label turn to an individual they know all too well in Duckett, a fellow resident at the excellent UK festival Freerotation. As the title suggests, Part 1 (Coffee, Women and Skits) is the first of two releases due on Untilmyheartstops from Duckett and backs up his status as an unsung hero of the Welsh scene. All four tracks nestle snugly in the brand of deep house this label has cultivated, yet Duckett still covers quite a lot of different ground stylistically. From the Borft style guttural throb and shuffle of opening track "Crappop", Duckett veers off into more cerebral, introspective territory on the delightfully fuzzy "Blackbody Radiation" whilst "Valentines Day Is For Animals" is a shimmering highlight.

  2. Muru (Bookworms remix)
  3. Always In 'N' Out
  4. Where Am I?
Review: Latest Wicked Bass instalment comes from lost 1990's tapes of an underground Estonian production group, Hupnosaurus. Side A opens with 'Muru', a simple ballad with its stripped kicks and funky string bass that gradually reach a lo-fi acidic house condition with psychedelic swirls appearing every now and then. Bookworms provides a remix treatment with thick, multi-layered overdriven & looped madness that strips the original to a simple bassline and occasional industrial stabs. On side B, 'Always In N' Out' starts out as unorthodox blend of a classic techno kick and speed garage percussion, but after a long building spacey pad breaks into a classic filtered house tune with transposed chords and cut-up vocals that runs until the end of the track. The last title track demonstrates heavy stomping kicks, swinging hats, familiar psychedelic whirls and a trippy, crushed vocal sample appearing out of nowhere questioning 'Where Am I?'.

HVL is the nom de plume of Tblisi producer Gigi Jikia who over the past few years has racked up an impressive clutch of releases for Voyager, Rough House Rosie and Housewax and is on superlative form with the Away From Everything We Know 12". The mood is largely reflective across the four original HVL productions with "Space Venture" a highlight upon first listen and the record is made all the more special by a remix of "Away From Everything We Know" from Gabriel Reyes-Whittaker's rarely seen alias The Reflektor.

Review: The East Coast's house don DJ Jus-Ed is, as always, on an unstoppable run of form. His latest bundle of club-friendly tunes comes on his own Underground Quality, of course, and it's four tracks from the man himself - preaching the gospel like only he knows how! Starting with "Acid Fro", the mood is darker and more hypnotic than his usual approach - this is a proper belter in every sense of the word - while "Ice 597 To Frankfurt" is more minimal, wavey and utterly pouncing. Flip the record and you got the melancholic melodica of "Katzback Gruv", another stomping club affair for the earlier set times, and "Train Ride To Berlin", a jittery, percussion-driven bit of neo-tribalism. Hot, as always. Don't miss this!

The EP dives deeper into the unique sound world introduced by last year's Passageway, its 5 tracks a deftly conjured ride through liquid emotive states. Shimmering waves of dark hypnotic energy rise and fall, evoking both synthetic plasmoid menace and soft sighing warmth, all brought to life by Halal's nuanced and rapidly evolving sound design.

The Irish label have featured plenty of exciting talent in the past, including Joey Anderson, Imugem Orihasam, Eduardo De La Calle, so we know that they can throw together an excellent variety of artists to form one hell of an EP. This time we have: Evigt Morker with the supremely dubby and laid-back "Langbro Kyrka", "Once Upon A Time In A Dub" by G-Prod, "ison" by Vidab and Curle members Hiver, and a cracking piece of percussive grit-house by the one and only XDB, always up for it and never shy of a fat groove.

Review: After flitting between labels for the first four years of his career, Blawan has decided to become master of his own destiny. Last month's Warm Tonal Touch EP marked the debut of his Ternesc imprint. This speedy follow-up continues on a similar theme, delivering a range of ragging, dark and often intense modular techno workouts. All four tracks prioritize percussion and rhythm, with any melodic elements - usually short, nightmarish loops, or horror-influenced textures - playing second fiddle to his impressive drum programming. It's a formula that works well, from the left-of-centre bounce of "Hanging Out With The Birds" and throbbing 4/4 pulse of "Mine Oh Mine", to the sludgy, industrial fuzziness of closer "Diatonic Valves".

  4. Create/Objects II (3:34)
Review: The latest label to benefit from the hardware mangling sounds of Jamal Moss is Tabernacle who secure some productions from the Mathematics boss under The Hieroglyphic Being Experience name. The two tracks on Methods Of Transfer Book I 12" are based around music from an improvised performance Moss gave in New York last year and both get reworked by John Heckle. Given the fact Heckle was given his break by releasing through Mathematics a few years back, it's nice to see the Liverpool producer tackle Moss's productions. Moss opens and closes the record with his original productions, "Create/Objects I" and "Create/Objects II", and both fizz with unpredictable energy. Inbetween, Heckle runs the voodoo down with a pair of gnarly reinterpretations that could well blow a few speaker cones.

  2. Anti Gravity Switch (4:53)
Review: Berlin-based producer Koehler may well have affiliations with both Skudge and Creme's R-Zone series, but he's clearly built a bond with London label Berceuse Heroique. Last year's label debut Dynasty was Koehler at his post-apocalyptic best and he's on similarly face-slapping form with "Anti-Gravity Switch". Produced with fellow Berlin type Kuno, the track is essentially a DJ tool for those who like their tracks to breathe a certain filth laden rudeness. A disgustingly thick acid-like riff is at the core of "Anti-Gravity Switch" around which Koehler and Kuno lay down some foundation shattering drum programming. Just listen to the clips! Dave Huismans remixes the track as A Made Up Sound, stripping it down and building it back up as some nasty broken dub business.

Review: These days when Steve O'Sullivan isn't gigging his new live show or putting out records on his Mosaic Split Series you'll find him swinging with the Sushitech crew, long-time supporters of the Englishman's music. This record sees O'Sullivan inject a little more flavour than what was heard on the Interchangeable Patterns Part 1 release, and he kicks it off with a linear A1 cut that sounds like a reduced Sandwell District production boiled down to suite both the house and techno listener. The A-side's second track pitches rapid tonal bleeps against phased out percussive snaps, while the B1 delves into deeper, Detroit inspired techno. B2 cut stays in Detroit, while adding some tribal elements to mark an EP that may be the first transmission of change in O'Sullivan's trademark Mosaic and Bluetrain sound.

"Orbit" takes over the entirety of the A-side with a powerful swell of bass hypnotics, driving percussion shots and a heavy dosage of head-banging. Over on the B-side, "MDMA" is inevitably madder, its bassline being more deranged and broken down...sliding nicely in between equally wonky piano keys and strange atmospherics. Large.

For the rest of us, recordings of those shows will have to do. A typically Echospace titled "Dimensional" sees CV313 lock down one of their wispy, circular grooves that could simply go on forever, while a moodier "Longing for Darkness" is far more atmospheric, although heavily undulating kicks provide a rhythmic pulse any CV313 fan will find hard to resist.

Review: Since making her debut on Sandwell District back in 2011, Rrose has become a familiar figure on the experimental techno circuit. Though she recently committed a quite singular album to the Further Records cause, it's Rrose's own Eaux label through which her revelatory material largely arrives and For Aquantice is another fine 12". Rrose's first 12" of 2015 features three more ghostly, otherworldly compositions, beginning with the creepy electronics and undulating rhythms of "Levitate". There's a greater rhythmic intensity to the wonky, delay-laden drums of the equally supernatural "Vellum", while "Signs" charges off in a classic off-key intelligent techno vein - all spiraling riffs, spitting melodies and psychedelic electronics.

Review: Upon launching the Hadal label back in 2013, Pangaea described it as "a series of self-released records", rather than an imprint separate to the Hessle Audio operation founded with Ben UFO and Pearson Sound. Since, he's been as good as his word, using it to put out occasional 12" singles of his own. This third 12" in the series contains plenty of floor-friendly fare, beginning with the distorted, broken techno rhythms, druggy textures and intricate, chiming melodies of "Something In Your Eye". There's a more classic bruk feel to the heavy, dubwise swagger of "Stimulant Dub", while "New Shapes In The Air" skillfully combines a ludicrously weighty sub bassline with wonky electronics and metronomic techno rhythms. Finally, he closes proceedings with "They Buy Gold", a fittingly intense, acid-flecked techno stomper.

From "Pleased To Meet You", a divvy and chord-heavy clusterbomb that slides its way across the groove with its medley of percussion swings, to "Air Strike", the mood is driving and the rhythms are right. There's even 1996's "Take Away" on there for good measure, a boogie-filtered face-melter which hasn't aged a single day since its original release. Cop!

The Rohs!

"Root A" will appeal to fans of the punchier tracks from the Giegling discography whilst the B side track has a real slinky vibe to the groove that really gets in your head and stays there.

But if you're after another taste of the booming warehouse techno that took hold around the turn of the decade, this two-track 12" will give you a reenergised version of "No Time Too Soon" (with extra 2015 industrial scrapings) and, for all we know, a reduced version of all time classic "Erotic Misery".

Review: Jealous God present Issue Number 7, the latest missive from Planete Rouge regular Alexey Volkov, and a record likely to cause bouts of overwhelming paranoia in listeners of a nervous disposition. There's something undeniably uncomfortable about the horror-fixated electronics, dystopian textures and spine-chilling freestyle vocals of "A Snake Falling To Pieces". The more upbeat and metallic "Never" is a little less bloodcurdling, with metallic hits clustered round a modular synthesizer groove. Perhaps the standout moment - though it's an all-round excellent excursion - is flipside "Ruins", which adeptly combines both approaches on an undulating, skin-crawling techno thruster.

Review: Exium continues his strong run of releases. As this four-tracker so ably demonstrates, what's really impressive about the Spanish producer is his ability to integrate existing tropes with his own sound. On "Monopoles", this approach sees him fuse a Function-style linear pulse with a repetitive vocal sample, while "Magnetic Flux" goes further and deeper into this direction, a dank, tunneling rhythm led by tonal bleeps and blips. On the title track, he changes direction again, with the kind of drones that one would associate with Hospital Productions fused with shaking percussion, while "Early Life" brings the release to a close to the sound of Mills-inspired, panel-beating drums.

His latest bundles of drum machine magic land on Lunar Disko - Ireland's prime techno outlet - and it's five tracks of synth-heavy house music for the more trained of ears. From "Bon Voyage" to "Implications Of Meaning", Heckle goes in heavy on the drums and his unmistakably distorted touch but there are plenty of melodics within, such as the beautiful chimes of "Drunken Organ". Hot!

  1. Nerve Netting (9:44)
  2. Progressive Latitude (7:29)
  3. Major Attack (7:23)
Review: Frak must be amongst the most consistent artists in techno. Some 26 years after launching their Borft Records imprint, they're still churning out bizarre 12" exercises in grotty Scandinavian techno, with very little sign of their notoriously high quality threshold slipping. Realismo delivers three more winding, twisting analogue treats, kicking off with ten-minutes of mid tempo, acid-flecked, heads-down freakery (the brilliantly icy, but also strangely intense "Nerve Netting"). "Progressive Lattitude" is a little fuzzier and more distorted, but explores similar sonic territory.
