Sumerio – Apnea D

This landed in my inbox recently, and from the first hit of the kick drum and roll of the bass line had me hooked. Sumerio brings us the track “Apnea D”, the follow up to “Break”, another track worth checking out if you are in to progressive Techno. This is an impressively produced track that…


Dualscript – Low Down

This is an absolute blinder of a track that punches so much weight in the intro, and then explodes in to a frantic dance floor, rave worthy track. Think of your strobe lights flashing and people flying on the sticky floors. I love the dark edgy vibe that Dualscript creates when the duo produces their…


Liquithority – Interlude

Liquithority drops another beautiful track, this time with a more subdued vibe called “Interlude”. All I can say about this is I’ve replayed it many times and each time it sends shivers down the back of the neck. There are subtle nuances that dance around the stereo field that if you are not paying attention,…


Jade Parker – Reverse Our Steps

This is Jade Parker’s second release this year from the Manchester talent and it starts with a beautifully organic, personable track called “Reverse Our Steps” built around a range of cuts of her vocal interspersed into a dubby beat with swirls and space finding sounds that entice the listener to turn up the volume in…


Hernan Cattaneo & Soundexile – Astron

Astron is a percussive, groove driven track that has beautiful melodies and sweeping energy throughout that encapsulates the listener and weaves a spacey tapestry of synth work and arpeggiated riffs around you as the track develops. Hernan Cattaneo and Soundexile have really locked in to a mesmerising rhythm while writing this piece of music and…


John Torri – A Spiral in the Dark

A Spiral in the Dark is John Torri’s latest techno offering on Sub-Label Recordings. This strong 4 track EP includes two original tracks and two remixes of those tracks. The production throughout the selection of tracks is brilliant with really precise, crisp drums that seem to have their own pulse and energy. The driven bass line…


Subminimal – Konl

This is an amazing piece of music by Subminimal, a percussive driven track, ambient and minimal with its own pulse, energy and cross over of inspiration. Swaying between techno and dnb, the sound design and choices of instrumentation are awesome, with some fun twists and modulations to the sounds. The gaps in the onslaught of…


Kyrist – Ill Skill (VIP Remix)

This is such a dark and moody intro to an absolute dream of a minimal drum and bass remix. Kyrist has pulled together an immense sound palette with insane modulations and beautifully sculpted reverbs that simply slice through the air in front of you. The drums are sparkly and clean, but have the fizz and…


Opiuo – Huckaloogee

This track is absolutely sick. Every sound is pristine and heavy with its placement. The chord that drones along has such a smooth tone to it. I really enjoyed the build ups and the inevitable drop into insanity making you dance and shuffle your arms like a crazy person. The production is awesome and it…


Kapital A – Destiny

Kapital A brings us his 11:11 album which an exploration through hip hop and modern electronic music. Destiny gives us a piano driven, up beat and intense ride in this amazingly produced track. The attention is captured instantly at the start with the combination of the piano and rising siren. The drums are fantastic in…
