There's a little bit of everything for all you techno lovers in this week's top ten chart. Styles all across the genre's spectrum make an appearance including two of Enrico Sangiuliano's bangers on Drumcode, an ethereal remix from David Granha on Sincopat, the second issue of the fresh and new Figure Jams imprint, and of course the totally new and amazing remix of "Age of Love" from Solomun!
1. "THE AGE OF LOVE (SOLOMUN RENAISSANCE MIX" - AGE OF LOVE [RENAISSANCE RECORDS]
Back in 1990, an Italian duo known as Age of Love birthed one of trance's first ever records as a self-titled release which nearly three decades later sounds as fresh as ever. However, an update never hurts and dance music icon, Solomun has taken the honors of revamping the classic and injecting a modern touch thereby giving it a whole new life!
Solomun, thank you for this exquisite remix!
2. "ASTRAL PROJECTION" - ENRICO SANGIULIANO [DRUMCODE]
3. "TAKE OFF" - SPARTAQUE [TRONIC]
Ukrainian techno producer, Spartaque makes his debut on the legendary Tronic imprint with four high-quality stompers including this jackhammer which is aptly titled "Take Off."
4. "INTERSPACE TEXTURES" - TIGERSKIN [MIOLI MUSIC]
5. "THREAD" - JAMES WELSH [PHANTASY SOUND]
Leeds-based producer, James Welsh is taking a step in a new direction with this fantastically gritty, floor-rumbler entitled "Thread." Out now on Phantasy Sound!
6. "DISCOVERY (DAVID GRANHA REMIX)" - DARLYN VLYS [SINCOPAT]
Darlyn Vlys' Stranger EP gets a remix package just a week after it's release and all three remixes are absolute fire including this scorching makeover from David Granha.
7. ALOVESONG - BOEXER [FNOOB DIGITAL]
All remixes including the original are slamming but the fellow from Glasgow who goes by the name of Replicalex remixed the fuck out of this cheekily titled banger.
8. WE ARE FAMILY VOL. 3 - VA [WNCL RECORDINGS]
West Norwood Cassette Library's 30th issue features a foursome of electronic music shapers including my personal favorite of the bunch, "Decimated #30" by J Tijn.
Out now strictly on vinyl!
9. FIGURE JAMS 002 - VA [FIGURE JAMS]
Len Faki's Figure Jams offshoot comes back deeper and darker for it's second edition which once again features two different artists sharing one EP with two tracks each. The first two from the duo Abstract Division and the latter of the four from Swedish producer, Patrik Skoog.
10. "BLOOMING ERA" - ENRICO SANGIULIANO [DRUMCODE]
I just couldn't resist leaving Astral Projection's b-side off of the chart this week. Turn this bad boy up and enjoy!
