New House & Techno Tunes:

Latecomer give ‘Music Is The Answer’ a tough makeover, more like ‘Tech House Music Is The Answer!’, we love it and it’s a free DL!!! Nice one guys!

Also up for free DL is a 3 part EP on NM Recordings featuring three different mixes of Celladore x MOAD ‘Freedom’. Our pick is the excellent Flava D mix

Those cool cats Deeptrak have a new track on Freakin909, it’s called ‘Bang Bang’ and it certainly is a classy banger of a track!

K & K have a new EP on Sleazy Deep which is getting a great reaction. One listen to ‘Peaceful crowd’ will tell you why, come on in, come on in!

Myriad Black have a great new track by Manuel Costela out. It’s a twisted Disco workout called ‘Southern Oracle’ which comes with an even more twisted remix!

State Unknown have a stunning vocal house track out now on Country Club Disco. These guys really showcase their production skills to full effect. And how could we not mention the luscious groove of a Mike Millrain remix that completes this fine package!

And how about some club-ready Techno action supplied by CDC’s latest two track EP on Cubism? More of this please sirs!

Gents & Dandys have now issued their recent vinyl only release to Digital eliminating all excuse not to buy it. Just listen to this house gem by The Verticals below, one of four fantastic reasons to buy!

Black Girl/White Girl make exceptional House & Techno beats. Take their latest EP as a prime example. These ladies are right up there with Lupe Fuentes when it comes to fiyah tunes!! This is ‘Roll Up’ taken from their latest EP on Strictly Deep…

And here’s a tidy funky club/tech shuffler from Richard Harrington. It’s a free DL from those top peeps at Fidget Black!!

New one on Get Twisted Recs, Tough Love & Karren Harding ‘Like I Can’ comes pre-loaded with firing remixes like thi one by DJ Q!

HUUUUUUUGGGGEEEE TUUUUUUUUNNNNNE from RafFa FL! This massive anthem on the Criminal Hype imprint is back!!! Featuring vocals by Mr V and a set of slammin’ remixes like this fave of ours by Max Chapman. This is ‘How We Do!’

Matteo Rosolare & JoJo have a new EP of 3 atmospheric and darker edged tech house tracks on In The Loop. We like this one ‘Momentum’ in particular

Back on the Techno tip, Ali Ahmadi’s latest release has been doing very nicely. Tracks like ‘Inner Peace’ complete with great big whopping hoover riffs are just the ticket!!!

Roog regularly collabs with Dennis Quin so with that in mind, you can expect some serious fiyah when they go solo for Simma Black. Fiyah is just what we get!!!

D Vine Sound’s recent multi-artist EP features funky treats like this one from Truth Be Told. It’s time to move on, groove on!

Rhythm Control’s Ibiza Closing Party comp is a must have selection of top-class tech House. We really dig this tune by Justin Pak with it’s powerful vocal sample. Play this one in front of Donald Trump and shut that man down!

And we finish with some Grimey Garage goodness from Tigs on Highly Swung Records. Shake yo’ funk trunk to the winding basslines of this bad bwoi!!

Force Mass Motion- The Stone of the 5th Sun 1992 LP



Feel The Panic!!!! Force Mass Motions’ Groundbreaking Oldskool LP Is Available Digitally And You Got To Have It!!!!

Oldskool ravers will fondly remember the absolutely massive anthem ‘Feel The Panic’ by Force Mass Motion. Everyone played it, it had a huge influence on the mid 90’s UK Hardcore sound where kickdrums replaced the breakbeats. However we certainly weren’t aware (until now) that Force Mass Motion released an album back in 92. Good news!!! That very album is now in remastered digital format, you can get it from the major dancefloor stores. Lets go through the tracks


The kind of stompy hardcore that Carl Cox used to play. Busy, loaded with synths and samples. Was this the influence for a certain UltraSonic track? Could be

2. Collision Course

The main riff of ‘Collision Course’ will be familiar to happy hardcore heads and for a 92 track, it sounds like it was made in 95. Uplifting bouncy techno brilliance.


More stomping action with Belgian & Detroit Techno stabs & Hip Hop vox. A nice crossover between the contrasting styles of Rave/Hardcore from daaan sarrrrf and ooop noorf!!!

4.Force Format

Gabber/Hardcore Techno circa 92′. Starting with pounding Kickdrums, Hoovers and acid 303s, the track once again switches into English Breakbeat Hardcore midway before returning to the kickdrum fueled action.

5.I Dream Of You

Bleepy dreamy Italo Piano rave perfect for kicking back to on a summer day

6.Jack Of Diamonds

A hugely popular track that epitomises Force Mass Motion and the Rabbit City imprint. Completely manic and full of energy

7.Feel The Panic

Massive ravers’ anthem that still gets the rewind at oldskool events to this day. Feel the panic!!!! Gotta have it!!!!

8.Reach Up

Another manic Rabbit City style hardcore tune with more of a 91/early 92 feel. Featuring similar pads to Razor Boy & Mirror Man ‘Beyond Control’ and the beats used in SL2 ‘DJs Take Control’ and many other hardcore classics

9.Take Me Higher

Pure 92′ ardcore a la 2 Bad Mice, Sonz Of A Loop Da’ Loop Era et al. From the distinctly signature oldskool breaks to the ravey trippy keys. This is 92 in a bottle. a tune that rocked the Fantazias and Dreamscapes across the UK and still sounds awesome


Some very early Tech Trance with a bit of House & Hardcore thrown in for good measure, a track way ahead of it’s time

11.Vanishing Point

In a similar vein to V.N.E, Vanishing Point is a very unique track of it’s time. A melting pot of many genres leaning towards bangin’ techno but with so much more in there for good measure

In summary, oh forget the summary!!! This is an essential album which digital fans like myself can now own. Love your oldskool? Grab this from the links below. Oh and word is there may be a vinyl re release too, head over to the Force Mass Motion official facebook page for more info
