DEORRO VS ADRIAN DELGADO - ALL I NEED IS YOUR LOVE - (DIM MAK)

Thursday, 01 May 2014 Tech / Electro
‘All I Need Is Your Love’ is a seductive blend of an indie / r n b vocal, downtempo verse against the backdrop of a pumped and charged, balloon squeaking chorus that should sit well on radio stations at any time of the day or night. It’s cool, understated and well worthy of investigation. 3.5/5 Reviewed By Paulette ...

Steve Aoki Ft. Wacka Flocka Flame - Rage The Night Away - (Ultra Music)

Thursday, 24 April 2014 Tech / Electro
Chinese bamboo beats, hard rap, rave synth, hare krishna finger cymbals and a kick drum that could explode concrete like it’s a bag of icing sugar characterize ‘Rage The Night Away’ the first single lifted from Aoki’s forthcoming ‘Neon Future’ double album. Put simply, the overloaded arrangement holds you down whilst the beats punch you in the face. It’s aggressive, full on and will make any festival tent lose its supports in the foot stampede. There’s no dub so if you don’t like rap / hip progr...

TV Noise - The Hold - (Doorn)

Thursday, 24 April 2014 Tech / Electro
If you’ve ever wondered how it would feel riding in the hold of a plane at 30,000 feet with the doors open, then this could answer your question. Drums roll and thud, effects soar and zip, then take off – feel the g-force against your face, wobbling your cheeks at Mach 1. Then they give you more drums that will make you strip you down to your undercrackers before a guitar riff teases you into part 2 where we do the whole thing again but even better. It’s all about the drums here so don’t hold ba...

Rank 1 & Dennis Sheperd - Freudenrausch - (High Contrast)

Monday, 17 March 2014 Tech / Electro
The collaboration between legends Dennis Sheperd & Rank 1 has been circling the rumour mills since Late 2012 so when Sheperd tweeted that they were both back in the studio again earlier this year, it fuelled massive excitement about them finally getting together for the first time. The result of that collaboration was definitely worth waiting for as they’ve put together an absolute corker. ‘Freudenrausch’ crackles with fast paced tech stabs, trance sub undertones and smooth piano cuts befor...

Teen Collection - 'Hot Jam 96' - (Visionquest)

Thursday, 19 July 2012 Tech / Electro
Released last week but then how could we let this gem escape the attention it so richly deserves. It seems strange that despite being only the labels fifteenth release Visionquest have had such an immense impact on club culture. This collection continues that theme with Laran Lane and Jaw (from dOP) stunning ‘Lazer Eyes’ twisting funky bass and percussion across cool vocals and beats. QBeck’s excellent ‘Alice’ follows in a deeper vein featuring Julia Govor’s vocal over moody electronics while so...

Grand St Starring Phillipa Alexander - 'Joe Palooka' Ft The Real Tuesday Weld & Deep Architecture Mixes - (Favouritizm)

Grand St Starring Phillipa Alexander - 'Joe Palooka'
As the Electro Swing dance craze continues to percolate across Europe and beyond, London's answer to the Anthill mob, Grand St, join forces with Brighton 'bearcat' Phillipa Alexander for a lollapalooza of a dancefloor smash titled 'Joe Palooka'... It's the cats pyjamas! 'Joe Palooka' was a 1930's US comic star who was a bit of a loser by all accounts. Phillipa clearly has one thing sweet thing on her mind and that's Mazuma.."Just show me the money!" Making a grand entrance, 'Joe Palooka' kicks o...

BTK Feat Stee Downes - 'What It Means' (Reelax & Ananda Project Remixes) - (Issa'min)

Thursday, 02 February 2012 Tech / Electro
'What It Means' is the latest single from Bali based DJ/producer BTK (AKA Billy The Kid) who has teamed up with ace vocalist Stee Downes, who recently dominated the charts with Lovebirds single smash 'Want You In My Soul'. The result is a heartfelt slice of dancefloor soul crafted for the electro disco dancefloor by Reelax and a lush dreamy housescape from those darlings of deep and silky smooth sounds, Wamdue Project. 4 out of 5 Reviewed By SOTO...

Stylus Rex - 'Amplify LP' - (Ground Level)

Thursday, 26 January 2012 Tech / Electro
Stylus Rex - Amplify
The debut long player from long time resident of the breaks scene, Stylus Rex, 'Amplify' is a thought provoking, well considered, with the utmost attention to detail, aural exploration. Tech funk, heavy bass and driving beats for the dance floor vie with deeper and more left of centre quirky electronica. 'Blatant Elephant's melodic elephantine bass is pure genius that meanders and kind of slithers along with a rasping b line that erupts into the wah wah of a trumpeting elephant. Genius! The vide...

James Talk & Ridney
West End Girls 2009
Extra Dry

Wednesday, 19 August 2009 Tech / Electro
It's rare to see the Pet Shop Boys material covered - for one thing their style is so quintessentially PSB that rarely can others bring something new to the table. Likewise with a legion of fans, spanning into three decades, you're pretty much on a hiding to nothing for your troubles. So fair play to James Talk & Ridney for reworking Chris and Neil's debut single from 1984. (Oh and before the train spotters start waving their biros in the air I think we can discount East 17's rendition becau...

Butch
Amelie
Great Stuff Recordings

Wednesday, 14 January 2009 Tech / Electro
There's something wonderfully sexy, seductive and totally hypnotic by this oh-so-simple instrumental offering. Butch, the Turkish-German wonder boy, also has a new album on the German imprint, 'Papillion', but it's this vibrant accordion and percussive house flavoured shuffler that's grabbing the attention of the likes of Chris Lake, D.Ramirez, Laurent Garnier, Nic Fanciulli, Martin Eyerer, and more. 5 Out Of 5Reviewed By: Lews Dene...

In Charge

Thursday, 27 November 2008 Tech / Electro
The king of all things banging in the World of tec-trance, has returned with a very clever dancefloor killer. We start the show with a luxury rolling off beat bassline and flicky percussion that gets you locked into a hypnotic groove. Fire up the haunting strings on the break and the floor is in your palm and waiting for instructions, time to bring in the big melody riff and those hands are busy painting the club ceiling for you in no time. The hook line will have the guessing for the tune but u...

MIndbomber / Mistral
Hiddenform

Thursday, 27 November 2008 Tech / Electro
Here's another strong double-header from Melbourne's Hiddenform imprint that follows acclaimed releases by Chris Cargo & Paco Buggin and Daniel Taylor. Now from St. Petersburg, Russia the label presents a name to certainly watch for in '09. 'Mindbomber' is a terrific house cut that pairs dubbed out beats with techno-tinged melodies to create the modern day jackin' sound. The addition of a driving synth-line only helps this swing, shake 'n' rattle in all the right places over a dirty as hell ...

Matt Chester
Endless Days
11th Hour Recordings

Wednesday, 12 November 2008 Tech / Electro
This won't be out until January but it's one of those records that the world needs to know about right now! Prime electro-driven grooves drenched in the kind of soul, musical innovation and sheer sonic majesty which explains why Canada's Matt Chester performed alongside UR in London. The man, who is now based in London, has that indefinable knack for injecting emotions into the machines and letting them fly out as genuinely heart-lifting vehicles which also galvanise the feet with their undulati...

Tim Deluxe
Jack It
Skint

Wednesday, 12 November 2008 Tech / Electro
There's been many bends, curves and changes in musical direction for Tim Deluxe over the years - from the innovative garage sound of 'RIP Groove' to the samba pop of 'It Just Won't Do'… for his latest chapter he returns to his underground roots for a stark slab of heavy heavy funk of raw analogue electronica. 'Jack It' has already won its strips on terraces of Ibiza with key support from Paul Woolford, Derrick Carter, Danny Tenaglia et al. But for me it's the bleepy 'Mudpod' that really lets his...

Chris Salt
Endgame
Silver Planet

Wednesday, 05 November 2008 Tech / Electro
The first single from Salt's forthcoming 'No Surrender' album is another simplistic musical oeuvre far becoming of his 25 years. Another well thought out head-swimmingly elaborate sound collage of mesmerising progressive house moods and epic dreamy melodies that help you float along to the eerie, yet captivating sounds of nu electronica. Add Tyrrell's no nonsense tech-house thumper version to the package for further palatable pleasure. 4 Out Of 5Reviewed By: Lewis Dene...

The Scumfrog, David Gausa & Static Revenger
Into The Deep
Sutil

Wednesday, 20 August 2008 Tech / Electro
With the assembled talent it's really hard not to get excited by this American/Spanish collaboration that finds The Scumfrog's near­trademark stark, and yet funky sound, the dominant factor. In the Original version it's a chunky house mind-enveloping journey into never-never land with equally eerie female vocal ad-libs complimenting the pulsating synth-lines and rasping basslines. Peter Gelderblom's remix strips the effects back to allow the tripped out vocals greater room to hypnotize, while Ga...
