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 Kirk Barley. Keep an eye on this guy.

Octo Octa – Adrift

Stunning track from the recent ‘Where Are We Going’ album. This is a track that would be perfect for either sundown, or sunrise; out in the open, with a vast sky above your head. Pulsing, driving Techno that manages to be foreboding, uplifting, and melancholic all at the same time. Huge emotional charge to this track, just like many others in the history (so far) of electronic dance music.

Octo Octa – Fleeting Moments Of Freedom (Wooo)

Cracking underground House from Brooklyn-based Maya Bouldry-Morrison, and is from their 2017 album ‘Where Are We Going?’.

Porter Ricks – Port Of Tangency

Lovely, lovely Dub Techno from the renowned duo. This excellent slice of minimal dance abstractions is from their recent album ‘Anguilla Electrica’.

Porter Ricks – Scuba Rondo

Murky, sub-aquatic minimal Techno from the Berlin based duo of Thomas Köner and Andy Mellwig. This is from their fantastic new album ‘Anguilla Electrica’, which is their first for 18 years. Released on the Tresor label.

Pixx – I Bow Down

Sounds a lot like Stereolab. 2017.
