Dorisburg – Venom

Swedish Techno from October 2017. This is sparse, dank material at 126 bpm. Groove me baby!


Truncate – Pseudo V1

Some new, tough Techno for the purists out there.

Manny Cuevas – A Matter Defined (Acid House)

Some brand new Acid for your Jackin’ requirements. This is from the Florida man’s 2017 EP ‘Thee Jackin’ Zone’.

The Scorpios – Yadob Yadob (A New Beginning)

Sudanese psychedelic Afrobeat (sorry for such a mouthful) from this London based outfit. The Sentinel urges you to catch this lot live if possible as it’s a magical experience. Their self-titled debut album has this track on it among many other gems.

Deepchord – Point Reyes

Mr Modell gives us some super-submerged Dub Techno with a few whiplashes that rise to the surface. This is from the sublime new album ‘Auratones’.

Porter Ricks – Anguilla Electrica

Like floating through dayglo static, or a multicoloured lightening storm; this opening track from Porter Ricks’ latest on Tresor, also titled ‘Anguilla Electrica’, sets the listener up for a stunning chunk of Dub Techno.

Julie’s Haircut – Gathering Light

This spacey Italian Psychedelic Rock band are channeling the spirit of ‘Set The Controls For the Heart Of The Sun’ on their new album ‘Invocation and Ritual Dance of My Demon Twin’. Dig.

LCD Soundsystem – Tonite

The obvious “hit” from ‘American Dream’, the great new “comeback” album from James Murphy and co. Disco kudos goes to the man once again with a song that rocks dancefloors for everyone ranging to Post Punkers, House/Techno heads, to those sawdust sawing 80’s wannabe “kidz”.

Actress – Falling Rizlas

Here’s the official video for this sparkling, beatless Electronica from Darren Cunningham’s 2017 album ‘AZD’. What makes it even better is that this has been directed by Dean Blunt. 2017.

Bambooman – M1

From March’s ‘Shudder’ EP, ‘M1’ delivers some lovely straight(ish) ahead underground House moves from a man who also likes to delves into abstractions from time to time (he’ll go anywhere from abstract Hip-Hop/downbeat, through Ambient Electronica, to to field recordings). That man is Leeds based┬áKirk Barley. Keep an eye on this guy.
