T3N Volume One [Cubism]


‘T3N Volume One’ [Cubism] is a big compilation, a double CD in terms of volume of tracks, 26 in total plus an excellent DJ mix of those tracks by Mark Gwinnet.

This writer is pretty new to Techno, it was just last year in fact that this very label (Cubism) turned me firmly in the direction of the sound.Tracks and remixes on ‘T3N Volume One’ include contributions from Dantiez, Barber, Lunacy Sound Division, Copy Paste Soul & Saytek. Every single tune on here is phenomenal. If you’re an old Techno warrior or a newbie looking to get some choice Techno tunes in your collection, ‘T3N Volume One’ is what you’re after!!!

Underworld – Cowgirl (Armitage Remix)

Underworld - Cowgirl (Armitage Remix)

The Armitage Remix of Underworld ‘Cowgirl’ has been getting serious rotation from some of the finest House & Techno DJs. It’s not hard to see why when the production is as good as it is on this slick slammer of a refix with spot on drums, a supersized bucket load of Techno vibes and big keys. Stream below, get dancing, start sing “Aaaam Inviiiiisible, Aaaam Inviiiiisible….. an eraser of love….”

Prole – Craze

Prole - Craze

The Acid 606 61 revival continues with Prole ‘Crazy’, a track that combines Techno of the current and oldskool Detroit variety with early 90’s warehouse rave. ‘Crazy’ has a fire lit underneath its beats. A surge of energy straight from the now banned outdoor raves transported into 2017!!!

THE WISE GUYS- Better That Sound E.P

Made in Paris – Lost Perception EP

Made in Paris - Lost Perception EP [Upon Access]


Made in Paris makes Lynchian Progressive/Techno sounds on the Upon Access imprint with the ‘Lost Perception EP’ due release date: 10/5/17

‘Kairos’ sounds like the noise of the red curtains swaying in the black lodge. We can envisage the little man dancing to the hauntingly aggressive and angry keys of ‘Kairos’ punctuated by warning ships horns surrounded by a sea of turbulence.


From these blackened seas, we travel to the title track ‘Lost Perception’ a true Techno growler that moves across the room with bad intent. Pounding percussiveness finds union with an undercurrent of insidious keys, perfect music for going bump in the night too!!!!

Made in Paris ‘Lost Perception EP’ will be out 10/5/17 on Upon Access

Hybrasil- Rassor

Hybrasil - Rassor EP [Intacto Records]

Hybrasil is making a name for themselves and rightly so as demonstrated on their string of stellar productions, the latest being the ‘Rassor EP’ on Infacto

Talking about that title track, it certainly it is ear grabbing. Things start off bright but a clever switch midway sees a tougher tone take over on this melodic opener.

‘Analogue Hype’ goes just a little retro with 90s tribal house influenced strings and is the most House music leaning of the four tracks on the EP.

‘Breasal’ seemingly references a mythological Irish king in name but as far as sound goes, this is the kind of Techno that causes the main room to heave in excitement.

‘Gliese’ is intergalactic in appellation and intergalactic in the audio tapestry it paints, a trippy stomper in salute to the motor city.


2 Sides Of Soul- Say Mama

2 Sides Of Soul - Say Mama EP [Lapsus Music]

2 Sides Of Soul ‘Say Mama’ on Lapsus Music bounces like a ricocheting bullet, a top and front loaded swift blast of crashing rhythms, rubbery basslines and rap vocals, the stuff that makes you wanna dance!!! ‘Next Trip’ spits out hats, kicks and snares in rapid fire fashion allowing waves of urgent synth to glide across a 6 bar funky loop of frenzy.

Vincenzo D’amico takes the Bpm up some considerable notches for their remix of ‘Next Trip’, it’s hard not to notice the very clear and crisp drums that continue to advance right to the end.

ME & Her go full on Techno for their reworking of ‘Next Trip’ seemingly out to prove that their beats hit hardest (which they do) while swapping funky riffs for hypnotising melodies and back to Detroit dreamtime drops proving you can go deep and hard without sacrificing either!!!

Vinicius Honorio ‘Through The Darkness EP’

Vinicius Honorio 'Through The Darkness EP'

We love Drumcode here at the blog and Brazillian Vinicius Honorio‘s new EP for the label is a particularly macabre and brilliant one. ‘Walking Shadows’ is a beautifully tortured terrain of shrill dystopian keys and thundering kicks. ‘Through The Darkness’ is confident and masterful, tingling with melancholy, ready to take your hand and guide you through the absence of light.
‘Desolate’ redefines what it means to be a diamond in the rough or in other words how to craft the sublime from the hardest of materials. ‘Out For Blood’ is the kind of track that switches the tension of the main room from excitement to out and out hysteria, a classic Techno tune in every sense of the word, built to command dancefloors, do not resist!!!
