Undersound is very happy to present a new EP by London-based producer Sohrab. This EP showcases his wide ranging influences, with a diverse sound palette, while demonstrating his already-established personal aesthetic. The EP opens with “The Fool”, a steady four-to-the-floor track with esoteric eastern-tinged melodies, and continues with “Vertical Alignment”, a bassline-led emotional trip with interlocking evolving harmonies. The flip offers two contrasting moods: the rougher “Resolution”, a fast-paced late-night burner, and “Digital Bliss”, whose soothing synths evoke old school Goa vibes.
Manisdron, side project of GOAT (JP) drummer, Takafumi Okada debuts on L.I.E.S. with a four track EP of frenzied live electrified drum/blast synth rip not techno beat experiments. A powerful force both live and in the studio – this is no nonsense gear that truly gets your heart pumping.
Evod Music presents ‘Galleria’, a Various Artists mini-compilation with Oscar Mulero, Mike Storm, Evod & Oisel and Divide. ‘Perlora’ by Oscar Mulero is a perfect dancefloor tool. Continuous bleepy spaced out sequences dialogue perfectly with stationary drums patterns and noisy hi-hats. ‘Cosmic Occurance’ is Mike Storm’s first appearance on Evod Music, which welcomes his inimitable style. The track is dominated by repetitive sinusoidal glissandos and a powerful bassline sequence. ‘Dune’ by Evod & Oisel is live recorded and composed by four sounds. A raw kick, a (dynamically filtered) bassline sequence, a resonant melody and and a light hi-hat. The melody of ‘Enigma’ by Divide is endless. As his usual, a single sequence dominates the entire track, melted with distorted, powerful drums and raids of pure power, during track’s climax.
James Ruskin and Mark Broom returned to their Techno bunker after some solo outings and their more experimental project, The Fear Ratio. They now deliver four new tracks of ”Basement Jams”. Expect heavyweight basslines, sharp stabs, tough grooves and a high level of funk to the metallic sonics that sets them apart from other releases.

LUZ1E makes her debut on Voitax, with a four track EP, “Radical Optimis”. The opener “Transition” lays down LUZ1E’s law, featuring headstrong drum work, matched with equally menacing bass arpeggios. If the theme of apocalypticism wasn’t obvious enough from the opening track’s looming pads, it will become apparent with “Electronic Warfare”. Served up on electro’s trustworthy chassis, we watch the distorted arpeggios unfold as the tension of the pads guide us to an dystopian finale. On the flip, the title track “Radical Optimism” uses shrill pad pressure to break the track’s dreamy opening sequence – as the modulating bass provides plenty of frequencies for the dance floor. The closing track, “Emotional Intelligence” provides a candid looking glass into the producer’s musical influences. LUZ1E’s knack for emotive pads furnish the track’s uplifting structure with class, as breaks and bass deliver us to a tender climax.
‘Psy Visionary’ is the latest outing by the long going Spanish techno producer ORBE. On his self titled imprint he’s been pushing futuristic and hypnotizing techno sounds since 2014.

Atmospheric and spaced out booming techno trips spread over 16 heavy cuts to showcase ORBE and his visionary sounds.
