This ambient album produced by Kassem Mosse evades obvious stretched out drone layers or analog synth arpeggio's, in stead intrigues with contrasting rhythmic layers of (90s sounding) synth patterns, that seem to be influenced by non-western music,... See full review

Gotta love JT Stewart's sound, mixing a Drexciyan electro sounds with Abacus-style deep chicago house and Metro Area-like disco vibes. His comic drawings used for the artwork are a super nice bonus! Too bad this is his only cd release and he is not... See full review

Minimalistic and pretty lofi electro, electronix and listening techno.. Nicely raw and sketchy vibe to these tracks, the rough edges make for an intimate vibe. Somewhere in between Palmbomen II and Bochum Welt or so... Cool album!

Quite the mixed bag, but definitely including some really cool versions of classic warp tracks. My personal highlights, by Jimi Tenor, Rustie, Luke Vibert and Autechre, are all on cd1, but there are also some downright annoying tracks there. Be sure... See full review

Supersolid and diverse effort by Mr. Voorn, who knows how to make his machines groove like little other producers do. Top class Detroit techno album by a one of the game's true veterans. Strange that not many people have been talking about this one. I... See full review

Delicate listening electronica full of detail, that's jazzy, playfull, cinematic and immersive. Works very well as background music like more records in the synth ambient balearia corner, but starts being really rewarding when listened to with more... See full review

Ostgut Ton's A-TON imprint shines a light on Luke Slater's armchair techno recordings as The 7th Plain with their Chronicles triptych. We had to wait for a while for part II and III (as part I was released in 2016), but it was well worth it. All three... See full review

An album full of dense and complex electro tracks with wavey vocals, that sound quite digital (for lack of a better word).. Like Autechre jamming with Cybotron or so. Definitely no retro music. Gerard Potuznik is pushing boundaries, without losing... See full review

Continuous downtempo techno trip by the Glaswegian veterans. Immersive music for late night driving, with a Detroit techno vibe (in a Landcruising kind of way), on a steady 100 bpm pulse. If you lost interest in Slam after Headstates like me, be sure... See full review
