Binny – Devil’s Orchestra EP [TORTURED006]

Making his Tortured debut is Liverpool based Techno DJ and producer, Binny with his ‘Devil’s Orchestra EP’. He delivers a refined EP from the striking and demonic strings of the aptly titled opener, ‘Devil’s Orchestra’ via the multihued tough groove of ‘Alternative Methods’, before the Tech-funk of ‘Roll With It’ and on to the Sci-Fi tones of ‘Untitled’ which closes the vinyl 12″.

Binny / Lee Holman – Resistance EP [ASGOR014]

Orbis with a slipt EP. On A-side Binny is ramping it up, once again. “Resistance” & “Infinite Ratio” has a brilliant hypnotic tension to it. Simply Binny, UK tension building up and excellent for playing 3 decks. Excellent DJ tools. On the B-side, the veteran Lee Holman takes it to the raw side of analogue techno with two no-nonsense raw material, the way Lee likes to build up his tracks. Straight forward. No compromises. Plain old good techno.

Binny – Shlaguance EP [CLFT010]

Electronic Body Techno with a touch of cosmic-retroesque Axis atmosphere by Liverpudlian Binny. “Rotate” not only features all the usual hallmarks of the early Purposemaker sound, such as overdriven kick, clattering/rusty high-hats and grinding SH-101 basslines: it even features improvised snare rolls that you’d hear The Wizard himself playing live! “Spirit” matches the icon’s new found love of the 303, but no doubt Binny’s own take on the sound, that’s a given. On the flip “TG-33” sounds like another segment from Live At The Liquid Room complete with DX7 organ stabs and more epic 909 drum rolls. Some pretty epic stuff on here that stands out from the rest of the current tributes.

Binny – Mispress EP [MONNOM006]

Liverpool’s Binny debuts on Monnom Black imprint, a label reserved for the darker of techno joints. In apt style, “Mispress” kicks things off in a menacing fashion, blasting out heavy kicks, minimal melodies and rough shots of percussion, followed by the bouncier but nonetheless charged belter that is “Outline”. Over on the flipside, “Quarantine” is a dirty squelcher in the style of Surgeon and Regis, while “Event Horizon” recalls Jeff Mills at his poignant and would sit incredibly well in a set by the man himself.

Binny – Nycthémère EP [CLFTREC006]

Inspired by the 90s Detroit scene, UK-based producer Binny delivers two weapons here, full of Millsian reminiscences, but still away from the hiss and swooshes. Both Destroyer & A Function Of Time stay to the essential elements, combinating hardness and soul masterfully. On the B side, Fundamental Interaction’s remix as well as Antigone’s reconstruction surprises with an unexpected u-turn. Frantic techno tracks.

For the latest Apartment release two interplanetary gangs come face to face in a techno battle for the ages.

Hailing from the Phantom Planet we come across Forsh, Bin Man and The Red Defender, a trio of rebel Outlaws whose spaceship is under fierce attack from The Muscle Patrol, the Hi-tech Galaxy’s ultimate and most fearsome tool of oppression. Following wave upon wave of Acid attack, the Outlaws are forced to eject from their ship, landing on a mysterious jungle planet…

Unbeknownst to them, the trio have landed on Huguenot, infamous for it’s ghostly shark creatures which rise up to hunt the living…and they smell fresh meat…

…meanwhile, traveling across deepest space aboard The Viceroy 9-c we find The Dean of Threenie and e-D aka The Beets. They are 2 disparate characters from the planet Tr One, infamous for it’s GreenLight Sector, a nefarious haven for low-life traders and smugglers. The duo traverse the galaxy in search of rare treasures to capture and trade back on home soil. Unlike the Phantom Planet Outlaws, these two know what awaits them on Huguenot…or do they.

Will The Beets save The Phantom Planet Outlaws from the bloodlusting creatures of Huguenot? Will they sell them out to The Muscle Patrol? Or will they join forces to rid the galaxy of it’s most fierce oppressors?

The black gold sat upon your turntable contains all the answers…and more…
