Tremblez Deviant EP - Black Merlin - SORN

Vintage synth fetisist Black Merlin acts out his coldest dystopian fantasy to date with this wonderfully bleak, minimal synth offering. Picking up career momentum (following killer releases for Weatherall’s Bird Scarer label and Timothy J. Fairplay’s/Scott Fraser’s unstoppable Crimes of the Future label) Black Merlin’s latest is among some of his best; manipulating the sounds of Detroit techno’s genesis, through the coldwave atmospheres of Richard Pinhas and even the theatrical sci-fi of Jeff Wayne’s ‘War of the Worlds’. Essential.

Lux - Genix - VANDIT Records

Genix’s productions always sound like they’ve been late night fretted over, regularly resulting in something that fair mushrooms out of the speakers. No exception, ‘Lux’ initially walks the high-wire between dark echoing, phased & delayed tech-trace and more atmospheric pad & chord-led arrangements. Break-side shafts of uplift filter in, but nothing that’ll quite prepare you for the overt uplift that’s but two minutes around the corner.

Saleh - Dauwd - Kompakt

Dauwd's been a buy-on-sight artist for this page for some time now, and this second excursion on Cologne's eminent Kompakt — a label which arguably feels more like his spiritual home than Michigan's equally illustrious Ghostly International, which has also released his work — is perfectly pitched. Neither title track 'Saleh' or 'Moiety' will drag you in instantly, but once they do and you realise the craft that's gone into this pair of unctuous delights — 'Moiety' in particular — you'll be a slave to them. Go on, stick it on again.

Live Ammunition - Evil Activities - Neophyte

The hardcore hit machine is back with a new release to damage your eardrums with! Known for his euphoric, hands-in-the-air approach to the hardcore sound, Evil Activities throws us a curveball this time, with a monster hardcore hip-hop fusion. With the main hook of the track being the '80s style East-coast influenced break, this is perfect to give the dancefloor an opportunity to catch their breath to the bouncy b-boy beats, before the build and drop that releases pure fury out of the speakers. An instant hit!
