_The_ gabber/hardcore album. The amount of utter mayhem compressed into these tracks are just beyond recognition and the lo-fi production makes it even better.

One of the better new house/tech producers. Pairs incredibly rhytmic sensibility with melancholic eternal grooves.

Not the best album cover, but probably one of the best techno albums of all time.

No one can deny that this guy's got talent. X Factor even.

As close you get to a genius in modern 'electronica'. Outstanding technical skills and emotional depth on every single release. Also perhaps even better live.

Unique in any way possible. Elin once again operating at another level injecting subtle and no-so-subtle absurdities into seemingly sub-standard hardcore techno.

Top-notch peak avant-techno for the freaks. Not your average 90s minimal techno for sure.

Best record so far by this guy. Tribal-exotic, acid-tinged techno-house in an understated, idiosyncratic way. Check it!

One of the best by one of the best MidWestern tech heads.

bouncy, rubbery basslines and a slight exotic feel. sweetness galore!

Stellar label, esp. Topdown Dialectic. Hoping for vinyl releases in the future.

Unique in many ways. Especially the A side in one blissful and mysterious track.

Well we can disagree on that. This was one of my favorites back then.

This is by far the best techno label of the 00's. Criminally underrated.
posted a comment on Susanne Brokesch. about 1 year ago
So underrated it hurts. A totally different perspective to 90es electronic music sounds than the usual dead-end futuristic clinical electronica/IDM stuff.

Ah, that makes much more sense! Foolish me. Well, consider it one of Russ Gabriel's most underrated records, then.

Snips of great atmopheres here and there, but go for the first album Colonial Patterns instead.

Very nice comforting expansive, wildlife electronics. More in line with the Faitiche catalogue than earlier Andrew Pekler releases.

The title track is slightly goofy in a very good way. Better than most Voiski records.

One of Luke Slaters most underrated records, but to me this wildpitch workout is his best. Quite unassuming at first listen, but the sense of rhythmic drive in both "The Hustler" and "Windy City" is unparalleled.
The P.A.S. remix however, is 90s ... See full review

Couldn't disagree more. This is a masterpiece, but no, not much to do with "techno" per se.

Wonderful wierd sprawling organic neo-new-age jams. Well worth checking out.

powerful shuffling techno with a strong analogue and slighly trashy feel from one of the best acid producers outta germany. 'i'm coming out of your speakers' and 'tic tac' (from black jack ep) are stone-cold classics, but just buy them all. now.
posted a comment on Philipp Matalla - Kiba. over 2 years ago
The B-side is very surprising for this label, evocative rhythmic dreamscapes from another world entirely. Slightly psychedelic but not too "out-there". "Kiba" track also very listenable - scuffy, lo-fi house with some afro-vibes.

Ppl who buy vinyl these days are not necessarily djs or audiophiles, but often merely collectors of physical items. They might also be fascists, and some them most definitely hipsters. But you need to just accept that, mate.

Is that it from this guy? Fantastic releases, there should be more.

One of my favorite "ambient" albums. Maybe some would say this predates the vaporwave phenomenon by 10 years

Best - and by far most underrated - producer of the so-called "Mid-west" techno scene of the 90s.
posted a comment on Laura Grabb. over 2 years ago
Totally underrated hardcore techno act. Has a unique almost impenetrable, inhuman (in a a positive way) sound - devoid of melody and the traditional HC techno tricks. And somehow still manages to very playable / danceable. Respect.

Everything this guy has ever done is pure gold. Hard to believe it was released by Skint, home to Fatboy Slim...

"Funk Do Sindicalismo" (yeah!) is a pure "what-the-f***?" track, pure funk mayhem. B side more restrained, but not much! Go for it!
posted a review of Mark Ernestus’ Ndagga Rhythm Force - Yermande. over 2 years ago
Not much can compare with the rhythmic energy and stumbling groove of the Prophet 5 Rhythm Mix, but all mixes are great. Of course the sound quality is second to none. One of the high points of 2015, no doubt. Hoping for more Ndagga in 2016!!

Too many releases to be 'cult worthy' I guess., Some releases are top notch, but too much samey pedestrian by-the-numbers tech-house as well.

Still one of the best albums to come out of the whole lo-fi house/techno movement.
posted a review of Dataclerk - Debut. over 2 years ago
Under the radar record here. Both sides are subdued minimal 4/4 techno tracks that have a dreamy slightly 90s ambience to them. Nothing much on first listen, but will grow on you!
posted a comment on Paldrame - Osem. over 3 years ago
Though some might say this is a bit too simplistic and relying heavily on the trusted 909, this is a solid no-bullsh*t dj-record with a generally upbeat mid 90s techno mood throughout. Worth checking.

This is fantastic news. I've listened to the "a side" track endless times on youtube. Maybe the best I've ever heard from these guys.

Dishonest to the consumer?! It is hardly a job for the artist to research the entire market before releasing a record under a specific name. Generic artist names are a part of techno culture and always has been - it is up to the "consumer" to do the ... See full review
