Get ready for another week of bangers, groovers and bouncers that fall under the guise of that wonderful, expansive genre we call techno.

1. "TERMINATOR" - MIKE VÄTH and MARCO PIANGIAMORE [AFU LIMITED]

Mammoth tune alert from German producer Mike Väth who teams up with Italian co-producer Marco Piangiamore for a blistering track titled "Terminator," which has already seen support from Adam Beyer, Mike's own star brother, Sven Väth, and even Richie Hawtin. Need I say more? 

2. "THERMION" - SLAM [SOMA RECORDS]

Scottish techno pioneers Slam release their first EP taken from their upcoming LP - and from the EP, I've chosen the deep and minimal beauty "Thermion" as one of this week's best tracks in techno.

3. "TOUGH ENOUGH (PIG&DAN REMIX)" - VONDA7 [LOST & FOUND]

Star techno producers Pig&Dan take it down a notch with their latest remix as they trade in their hammers for a mesmerizing techno groove on Vonda7's premiere release through Lost & Found, "Tough Enough."

4. "HELTER SKELTER" - NICK CURLY [TRUESOUL]

When I close my eyes to Nick Curly's newest techno groover, "Helter Skelter," I'm instantly transported back to Sunday, September 18th at Space Ibiza when he caned this one on the terrace.    

5. "SUSTAINED SOUL" - VANGELIS KOSTOXENAKIS [DEFINITION:MUSIC]

Greek producer Vangelis Kostoxenakis lands on the well-respected Definition:Music imprint with a three-track EP that features this contemporary techno gem he calls "Sustained Soul."

6. "RIOT" - BASTIAN BUX [MOOD]

El Row resident Bastian Bux's Protest EP features this prolific yet very deep techno weapon simply titled "Riot."

7. "VENOM" - STEPHAN HINZ [SECOND STATE]

Berlin-based producer Stephan Hinz makes a very welcomed return to Pan-Pot's Second State imprint with a four track juggernaut of an EP that features the synth-heavy title track, "Venom."

8. "FANFARE" - DARREN EMERSON, JOHN DIGWEED, & NICK MUIR [BEDROCK RECORDS]

The duo formerly known as Bedrock comprised of John Digweed & Nick Muir team up for one-off production with the man formerly of Underworld, Darren Emerson, and the result is this ultra-chunky slice of euphoria they call "Fanfare."  

9. "FIBONACCI" - YAN OXYGEN [IAMT]

Try sitting still to this absolute banger by Ukrainian producer Yan Oxygen.

10. "SPECTRUM" - SIAN [OCTOPUS RECORDINGS]

Octopus label boss, Sian cuts out the nonsense and gets dark and sinister on his newest single he's titled, "Spectrum."
