In an era of political instability, we prefer to talk about techno. Did you hear that debut album from Specialivery? How about Marc Romboy's new two-tracker on Kompakt? And what about Beatport's new techno classifications? Was that really necessary?

1. "SLEEPLESS NIGHTS" - CRISTOPH [TRUESOUL]

It's been a minute since Cristoph released on Truesoul and what a warm welcome back he deserves after nearly four years. "Sleepless Nights" is track number one on this three-track EP and it's a damn near ten out of ten in my book. 

2. "BEYOND" - MARC ROMBOY [KOMPAKT EXTRA]

Marc Romboy strikes again with yet another prolific trip through deep and melodic techno. The tune is titled "Beyond" and it serves as the b-side to Kompakt Extra's Speicher 114.

3. "CONVECTIVE HEAT TRANSFER" - SPECIALIVERY [OBLATE RECORDS]

Swiss producer, Specialivery just dropped his premiere full-length, Gravity Darkening towards the end of February. Pick it up or stream it now if you're keen on sophisticated techno like this tune right here.

4. "ZURU" - ALX [DESCEND RECORDS]

Miami techno stalwart, ALX shies away a bit from his usual banging style and goes the more melodic route on his latest release via his own imprint, Descend Records

5. "FUTURE STATE" - ANJA SCHNEIDER [SOUS MUSIC]

On the flip side of Anja Schneider's newest E.P. is this dynamic warehouse jam that'll you have you yearning for a early morning, sunrise rotation at a rave near you.

6. "ENTROPY (SPARTAQUE MIX)" - JOYHAUSER [PHOBIQ]

This massive and bombastic tune from early 2019 gets a remix package in early 2020 led by this equally massive rework by Spanish producer, Spartaque!

7. "INTERGALACTIC SNIPER" - SPECIALIVERY [OBLATE RECORDS]

Sci-fi style techno from the Swiss producer known as Specialivery!

8. "SERUM" - MARK REEVE [DRUMCODE]

Frankfurt's Mark Reeve never skips a beat so it's no surprise that Drumcode has invited him back for yet another outing titled Distance. Track number two is my favorite and I think you'll dig it too. Turn it up. 

9. "DEVOTION" - TRANSCODE [TERMINAL M]

Manchester-based producer, Transcode returns to Monika Kruse's Terminal M imprint with a trio of slammers including this emotionally driven one titled, "Devotion."

10. "STARCOURT" - CRISTOPH [TRUESOUL]

We wouldn't be doing Cristoph's new EP any justice if we didn't include at least two of the three in the best of February chart.

11. "DIFFERENT REALITY" - CHRIS VON B. [PIRATES ARE LOUD.]

Berlin DJ & producer, Chris Von B. dropped a three-tracker in February which included this deep and melodic banger aptly titled, "Different Reality."

12. "GRAVITY DARKENING" - SPECIALIVERY [OBLATE RECORDS]

In an age, when the importance of the full-length album has faded away, Swiss producer, Carlo Bernasconi is challenging the change and a little bit more. Under his production alter ego, Specialivery, he released a full-length concept album which tells his personal story allegorically in future-like, fantasy, techno fashion. And to help illustrate his vision, he commissioned well-known Italian comic book artist, Sergio Giardo.

Here's the title track which we presented the premiere of back in mid-February.

13. "STALKER" - MARC ROMBOY [KOMPAKT EXTRA]

Techno legend, Marc Romboy returns to Kompakt with a pair of boisterous tunes equally energetic in their own way including this peak-time business he calls "Stalker."

14. "DESTROYER" - DOK & MARTIN [ANALYTICTRAIL]

Not to be confused with house music royalty, Doc Martin, the techno production duo known as Dok & Martin just dropped a three tracker which includes this very prolific banger with a larger than life drop reminiscent of early '90s Dutch techno.

15. "ACTIVE SHOOTER" - ETHICAL GOVERNOR [ENCLOSED ORDER]

Unmanned Autonomous Force is the title of Ethical Governor's premiere album and "Active Shooter" is the very first track on that full-length which we include here as one of the best to drop in February.
