Huey Mnemonic – Virtuosity EP

Subsonic Ebonics – Release: 6th July 2020

Huey Mnemonic rolling the ruff and ready drum patterns over some classic Detroit progressions. Channeling the original techno sound and futurist concepts, this EP brings a modern sheen to the style and keeps the tempo as it should! Extra nice to hear some unabashed toms leading the march in both tunes, with the Moma remix taking things on a more tried and tested club route. TIP!

Will update the post when there’s some previews online…

JTC – Wells Orbit (Rojava Aragon)

Bopside – Release: 10th April 2020

The paradox of techno music is that it exists in some kind of timeless zone of existence where past, present and future merge into one. A music that was about exploring the future is now entering its fourth decade. Like all explorations of worlds-to-be they often reveal more about the times that they were composed in then a future yet to be.

PREMIERE: OverworX – You Better Know

Overworx – Release: 10th April 2020

Amidst the bleak lockdowns, the echoing mantras of “stay indoors” and other rituals that present themselves in our newly enforced climate, art and creativity take on new meaning and importance.

Cookie-cutter dance music and bandwagon-hopping DJs have been ruthlessly sucked out the airlock, floating in limbo and directionless. Luckily for us, it appears the realness is surviving, like mutated roots waiting to bust through the veneer and grow back harder and more twisted than before.

Utopian future or dystopian state. Whatever happens post-virus, you can be sure Ben Pest will be providing the gritty, fucked-up soundtrack.

Anti-Patriot – Ideology

Sonic Mind – Release: 17th April 2020

Four tracks of thoughtful, hard and overdriven techno grooves in that distinctive Kalamazoo style.

From the press release: “The artist, known only as Anti Patriot lives everywhere and nowhere in particular. In fact no one knows where he/she is from. What we do know is they don’t agree with a lot of things their country does, from its leaders to the mass media and even some citizens, especially in these modern times”

The Forgotten Man – Cosmic Echoes

Noctu Recordings – Release 28th February 2020

Brighton based The Forgotten Man has been quietly and slowly building things up over the last year or so on his own Noctu recordings label. This release is our favourite so far. Don’t expect anything groundbreaking in terms of new styles or fancy gimmicks, but do expect something quality and long-lasting when it comes to the musicianship and feeling.

Highlights include a remix of Girls of the Internet by Mark Broom, abstract minimal experiments by Makaton and some atmospheric electro by Annie Hall.
