Polyverse is the new debut album of the very exciting and fresh sounding Kosmogonik from Bucharest, Romania. Nine driving and atmospheric tracks that vibrate all the way from heavyweight techno to cosmic ambient.
Mixing Engineer, DJ and producer Yossi Amoyal is the man behind Sushitech Records. The label turned 15 years old in 2020 and to celebrate this milestone Yossi has compiled Fluere across four discs (plus an extended Part V – Fatum). The compilation shares some of his story through the records that inspired him and continue to do so.
In loving memory of the late Detroit legend, Mike Huckaby. Originally released on Sushitech back in 2011 this is a limited 10″, 15th anniversary reissue on a clear vinyl. The label will donate all the profits to Detroit youth in need.
Sushitech’s sub label Pariter presents the Romanian group Lisiere Collectif. “Unknown Credentials” is a project of 5 tracks released on 2 single records. A sides on both parts are absolutely massive, acid lines and hypnotic chords peak time tracks that will shake any proper sound system with some serious bass extension! B sides are deeper and have more modern, fresh electroish vibe that we love!
This week we will be travelling through Georgian landscape, visiting some mountains, rivers, vineyards, ancient ruins and old town, but also some partying in Tbilisi. During this time there will be less activity around here.
This is a short recap of what our readers enjoyed most on Hipodrome, a top 3 of the most appreciated albums, compilations, mixes and other stuff.
Vakula – Metaphors [Leleka]
The most appreciated album by our readers is ‘Metaphors’, the album from the Ukrainian master Vakula. ‘Metaphors’ is slightly different from some of his full-length excursions, focused as it is on the gently unfurling, head-in-the-clouds world of ambient music. Of course, much of the music is still gently rhythmic but the vibe remains thoroughly horizontal throughout.
Sushitech Records presents ‘Invisibility’, the debut album from SIT aka Sideways Invisibility Theory. The DJ & producer duo is based in Bucharest and was formed in 2009 by Cristi Cons and Vlad Caia. Drawing from an early education in classical music, their influences range from ethereal jazz to experimental trip-hop.
A must have album for all Dub Techno / Basic Channel / Sushitech fans. Tikiman is back with an amazing album and the debut LP with Rhauder.
A future classic of the Detroit master on the Berlin based Sushitech Records! Essential Alert, must have release.
This record sees O’Sullivan inject a little more flavour than what was heard on the Interchangeable Patterns Part 1 release, and he kicks it off with a linear A1 cut that sounds like a reduced Sandwell District production boiled down to suite both the house and techno listener. The A-side’s second track pitches rapid tonal bleeps against phased out percussive snaps, while the B1 delves into deeper, Detroit inspired techno. B2 cut stays in Detroit, while adding some tribal elements to mark an EP that may be the first transmission of change in O’Sullivan’s trademark Mosaic and Bluetrain sound.
Five reworks of Delano Smith’s recent output on Sushitech Records. Featuring the talents of Marcel Dettmann, Makam, Steve O’Sullivan, Oracy and the legendary Convextion.

This post is about the followers of my blog and the most successful posts, the releases that gathered the most likes and clicks in 2013 from my visitors.
Sushitech with a remix pack for Steve Steve O’Sullivan. Remixes by Mike Huckaby, Delano Smith, Rhauder, Exos and Thor.
For those that don’t know, Bluetrain was a sub label of the legendary Mosaic and was a true classic label from the 90’s where Steve released quality dub techno and house along with some fantastic collaborations with the likes of Ben Sims and Lee Grainge. The pack includes 10 Tracks in total. 2 Remastered versions, 4 exclusive mixes/edits and 4 new and unreleased tracks from Steve.
A long-overdue reappraisal of Steve O’ Sullivan’s efforts as a producer is underway with this bumper release from Sushitech. Collating the myriad aliases of the Mosaic boss and drawing on some on his co-conspirators such as Mark Ambrose and Jorge Zamacona, this triple vinyl beast of a package is overflowing with high-grade house music powered with the attitude of techno. There’s a classic feel to all the tracks here as they carry the torch for Basic Channel and the original dub techno ethos, but attaching the spacious, mysterious tones to a funkier template. That possibly oversimplifies the majestic quality to this breed of techno, but then of course the devil is in the details.
