Superb, fresh, mesmeric, long-open-road house — backed with a jolt of rowdy Sotofett junglism.
Proper warehouse bangers, with a vengeance: the Ekman is a furiously maxed-out piledriver; the Vereker is more Thing than machine, massive and roiling, scorpion-tailed and owl-eyed. Magnificently malevolent.
Compelling, bare-bones, rent-asunder techno-not-techno from the consistently outstanding EL. Lovely label artwork. Warmly recommended.
Excellent trip-hop, with Kryptic Minds and Marcel Dettmann remixes.
The Basic Channel maestro takes on Konono in his hardest, best solo mix yet. So brawling and bad-minded, dense and intense, and musically expert, it amounts to a ritual humiliation of the genre Dub Techno.
The first in our series of Shangaan homages. A metronomic, clicking beat to drive you crazy; a kind of Motorik lash — dubwise, midrange; moody strings. Wry, driving, one-of-a-kind genius from the Berliner.
Expertly blending electronics and instrumental playing — percussive, outernational, grooving hard.
Expert Berlin-school techno from the Sandwell District co-conspirator, ranging engagingly from urgent steppers to spacier, jazzier excursions.
Aka Mike Ink, the label boss’ legendary and epic, immersively ambient techno masterpieces.
