Ben Sims – Gamma Ray Subway EP [DRH055]

Four techno banging tracks by UK Legend Ben Sims, on the A side Rippin & Skippin is this relentless Jackin heavy Techno jam. Gamma Ray Subway is a Funky Hypnotic and repetitive jam that can somehow be pictured in a Jeff Mills set, while on the B side it’s Acid attack. The Stalker is a darky heavy monster, while Acid OD is a dope and raw Acid jam.

Heartless – Impulse Model [126D-03]

The first release from Heartless on Steve Bicknell’s 6dimensions. Acid tinged techno lives throughout the EP. Hazy modular sequences, sizzling precision crushed atop of a constant kick drum creating an organic aesthetic. Impulse Model exudes human emotion, the EP’s emotional depth lies beneath its techno construct within coarse and bruised production which gives the release a confidently imperfect aura. The production process for Heartless is a ‘way of absorbing things that have happened and completely escaping from them’, ultimately Heartless has composed an EP that condones escapism whilst the listener stays firmly rooted in their emotional state.

Nuel – Tecnica [SEM086]

Manuel Fogliata is one of Italian techno’s most singular artists and deservedly gets lumped in with the modern sound of Rome alongside such greats as Donato Dozzy: whom he’s collaborated with as Aquaplano. The Madrid based Semantica imprint is a fitting home for his style of tribal-trance techno, which incorporates hypnotic elements (much like his peers) but with more emphasis on polyrhythms: his niche. A side cut “Blue-Ray” is one such track: a Roman raindance.. if we’ve ever heard such a thing! On the flip, he’s got you covered for droning/tripped-out late night adrenaline on “Caustic” while “Deep Thought” really does rate him up there with legends like Mike Parker or Cio D’or when its comes to conjuring those ghosts in the machine: this is real heady techno geared for some proper ‘WTF’ moments on the dancefloor.
