The orange man has been sort of elected President but fear not because I have the perfect remedy to all the anger you probably have bottled up inside. Ten brand new, (mostly) banging tunes from the wide spectrum of the techno universe.
1. "STILL POINT" - B.TRAITS [IN.TOTO]
Brianna Price, the Radio 1 host who we all love and know as B.Traits dishes out her first release in over 4 years and it's really quite special. The track is called "Still Point" and it captures the essence of a very fine Paul Woolford tune. Out now as the premiere release on her brand new label, In.Toto.
2. "AUTOMATIK" - MAK & PASTEMAN [UNKNONW TO THE UNKNOWN]
Upon immediately hearing this straight jacker, I was instantly transported to 1995 when the likes of DJ Funk and Underground Construction reigned supreme in clubland.
3. "EVE'S SEVEN" - KOMON & WILL SAUL [AUS MUSIC]
The Aus Music imprint has found itself typically unorthodox on a regular basis thanks to appearances from some of the most forward thinkers in dance music such as this brilliant collaboration between label regular, Komon and the head honcho himself, Will Saul.
4. "PROCESS" - MATRIXXMAN [DEKMANTEL]
San Francisco techno guru, MATRIXXMAN channels Richie Hawtin on his 21st century take of Spastik. The drum-heavy track is called "Process" and it's featured as the first tune of the four track EP, Rhythm which is the first in a highly-anticipated, three-part series.
5. "ILLUSE" - ALEX BAU [COCOON RECORDINGS]
6. "AURORA" - SIAN [OCTOPUS RECORDS]
7. "ILLUSION" - KEITH CARNAL [ARTS]
Dutchman Keith Carnal gets prolific on this 130 BPM stomper he calls "Illusion."
8. "DUST (LUCA GAETA REMIX)" - DAVID TEMESSI [ORANGE RECORDINGS]
Italian techno maestro, David Temessi makes his debut on the Orange Recordings imprint with the lead single, "Dust" and it features this blazing hot re rub courtesy of Luca Gaeta.
9. "BE YOURSELF" - MODUS [IMUNE RECORDS]
L.A. based producer, Joshua Garcia aka MODUS charges into the latter part of the year with a two track assault that features the hypnotically, aggressive tune "Be Yourself."
10. "QUADRATIC FORMAULA" - NIKOLA GALA [MINIMAL FORCE RECORDS]
Wrap your mind around this IDM beauty by the well established Greek techno producer, Nikola Gala!
