  • Overshift – Of Light and Shade

    “Techno”. Say the word and most people’s thoughts turn to visions of light sticks, Ecstasy, and dumb costumes. Having been to countless raves myself, I get it. However, since the birth of rave so many years ago, the “techno” umbrella has spread to cover a host of different sounds. For example, “minimal techno”, where today’s pick kicks things off.

  • Schwefelgelb – Dahinter Das Gesicht

    25.10.2021

    Rhythmic and repetitive (in a good way), this EP practices some heavy 80s and 90s industrial worship.

    Frankfurt based DJ Disrespect drops a four-track EP entitled Jamz from the Attic for Italian label Scum Collective. One might ask himself what the heck can you actually write about straightforward techno? It isn’t innovative, it’s straightforward and it just bangs, right? Right… Not at all actually. Especially when it comes to DJ Disrespect, things were never so simple to start with.

    Leather Coated Bitch is the latest offering from the Balkans blitzkrieg brutalist DJ Bazootka – an inferno of collective entities; cross-weaving the stylizations of ghettotek, Detroit, Dutch punk techno and smoked out brain-danced inflections.

    How much bang would you like? Yes.

    Since the beginning of quarantine artists have been releasing more music then before to at least try to stay afloat and continue with their love. And it feels like more than ever before that many releases get lost in the algorithm. This had almost happened with the latest SÆDEM release. Luckily, if one searches for current bangers themselves, rather than letting machines choose what you might like, you will be able to trace down gems like this one.

  • Céili Collective – Speed Bumps

    16.09.2020

    It is not a new normal. Everything is a new NOW. Céili Collective was recommended to me in my Bandcamp feed and the description “Various artist focused label driving out of London” caught my attention right away. When I then saw that they released a compilation featuring some artists I really like, I bought it on cassette without hesitation and listening.

  • Vladimir Dubyshkin – Russian Porn Magazine

    12.08.2020

    For me, Dubyshkin always had a supernatural power when it comes to bringing an uplifting mood through his simplistic ways of using techno beats with no gimmicky production but straight to the point hi-hats and no wrong experimentations which gets the groove thumping throughout with no compromise whatsoever.

  • Pinch – Reality Tunnels

    reviews techno

    16.07.2020

    Reality Tunnels starts with “Entangled Particles” that features Emika on vocals, a very deep sounding track that immediately puts the cards on the table for what is about to come next. The switch from the slow trip-hop breaks to the junglist fast-paced rhythm hugged alongside the massive and atmospheric pads alongside Emika’s vocals is done with a real sense of sound manipulation and creation of the atmospheric universe that only a sound storyteller can do properly.

    Have you ever seen a cover and thought: „I am just going to buy it, because this already looks like something I would like“? Rave Tool comes in a relatively normal cassette cover, but it’s the details that made me buy it right from the spot.
