Thomas P. Heckmann – Body Music LP [MONNOM013]

Body Music LP produced by a man who needs little introduction. Thomas P. Heckmann has flexed his prowess across all shades of electronic music, but it’s his contributions to EBM-techno, acid, industrial, and experimental that has earned him his notoriety. Heckmann has utilised 30 years worth of acquired knowledge to create a hard-hitting album which bears all the grit he is known for – harmonising analogue and digital wares to create an utterly immersive 14 track album.

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.

Dax J – Dreamscape EP [MONNOM001]

The 1st release from London label Monnom Black is a vinyl only affair that sees 3 original tracks from EarToGround’s Dax J with a remix from UK techno legend Mark Broom. A set of peak time weapons. Planet X, tough driving beats and hard soundscapes that lead into soothing echo chords. Mark Brooms remix keeps it in the same vein, peak time, hard hitting drums and driving bass in typical Broom fashion. The traditional sound of Alpha Rhythm strips things back with huge subs and eerie piano riffs, big kicks drums and gentle chords. The amen infused Dreamscape finishes off the EP with its old school rave vibes.
