Flexagon – Bordeaux 7am

This is simply a lush soundscape of rich synths and ambient tones that reaches far in to the distance and out from the speakers with a magical amount of space. The track is called “Bordeaux 7am” and is by the very talented Flexagon. The colder tones in this track are reminiscent of a familiar futuristic,…


SynthForce & DJ Ransome – Radio Signals

This track just demands attention from the listener. There is a rich tapestry of scratchy, metallic sounding dark synths, worked over an intricate beat that continuously propels the music forward. The production of each individual sound in the title track “Radio Signals”, from the EP crossover collaboration between SynthForce and DJ Ransome, is smooth and…


The Untouchables – Silence Your EGO

The Untouchables give us a mesmerisingly, hypnotic groove driven track called ‘Silence Your EGO’. This is available on the well respected Samurai Music. This track is simply infectious and will have you swaying as if under a trance. It’s spooky and dark, yet inviting and amazingly sculpted with some excellent sound design. I’ve listened to…


Hugo Kant – This Is Just The Beginning

Taken from the ‘Out of Time’ album released in 2017, Hugo Kant’s ‘This Is Just The Beginning’ is an absolute masterpiece to round off a superb album. I’ve listened through the whole album several times, and it is a real journey that can be enjoyed by all listeners and music lovers. But for me, ‘This…


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…
