Manni Dee’s new release date on Ansome and Ossain’s Brixton based label S.L.A.M, a movement that clearly came from the love of the genre: with techno getting more and more popular, it has those qualities you can’t find in every initiation of the scene. The label specialises on the harder side of techno with industrial …

Out now is the new EP from Clacton-based DJ and Producer Jamie Fielding, out on Jamie Jones’ Hottrax label, featuring three welcome doses of late night house music. It’s almost ironic that Fielding was inspired to take up DJ-ing / producing by a set from Jones back in 2018. The title track opens proceedings with …

From the relatively young dance label ‘Somma’, comes their next EP ‘Too Far Gone’, from producer VayFlor and features two original tracks and a remix. Deep, Melodic or Progressive House, you can take your pick from the various genres used to label the music, but to me its all of these and more. The Title …

Although it’s been robbed of its live connection this year, the UK Nu- jazz train has kept up the momentum with a roll of dynamic and defining releases. Oscar Jerome’s ‘Breathe Deep’ album was one of those touchstones. It saw the KOKOROKO guitarist and super collaborator (with buddies like Shabaka Hutchings, Moses Boyd and Yussef …

US BEATS stable Loot Recordings has welcomed Indian producer Aditya Prabhu to its roster. Recording as Filtergeist, Aditya has begun to carve out a name for himself in the past couple of years with a brace of mixes and a series of individual tracks for Quilla with trademark geometric videos.

After the successful release of first single ‘I Want U,’ an enthralling collaboration with L.A. based Tom of Finland Foundation and new single ‘Car, Car, Car,’  DJ Hell announces his 5th album ‘Zukunftsmusik,’ set for release on May 12th (physical: June 9th) via International Deejay Gigolo Records.   The techno revolution 30 years ago, where boundaries and walls crumbling down. …

Pulling together elements of what, in much simpler and easier to categorise times, was referred to as ‘Dance’ and ‘electro’ music, (these days increasingly muffled and obscured by sub sections dreamed up by teenagers who rarely leave their bedrooms) Roosevelt, aka producer Marius Lauber, brings a little bit of German efficiency and European swagger to …

So let me start out by saying I’m not an aficionado when it comes to electronica. I’m really just an outsider looking in that finds himself drawn to the beats and noisy synths. I feel EDM, techno, and house music like I feel jazz, hip hop, and classical music; that is to say I feel …

Matt Cutler, more commonly known as electro-maximalist Lone, is the master of (to use a phrase) stuffing ten pounds of shit in a five pound bag. Except, instead of shit, it is gold: pure, audible gold. His 2012 album ‘Galaxy Garden’ was a massive hit with damn near everybody (myself included) and since then I …
