UNIT003AUNIT003B



After a bit of a hiatus, Expansion Unit is finally back with another slice of moody and brooding electro trickery. Courtesy of Berlin-based Pascal Hetzel, the two tracks “Extra Terra” and “Fermi Paradox” showcase raw and rugged machine funk with a strong wide-eyed escapist undercurrent. The future is now.

Metrolux – Various Artists – Edition 3 EP – MLM07


MLM007_TranslucentMLM007_Black_LTD



The talented Italian producers Pietro Caprioglio aka Autre and Federico Pedron aka Xinner kicking it off with „Nebula“. An emotional piece of late night techno music full of analog warmth and heart warming depth.
Autre´s „Seiryu“ is an atmospheric and loopy groove monster for the deeper dancefloors.
Dresden´s Kryptic Universe delivers with „01309 Stairways“ one of those gorgeous and simply perfect analogue sounding dub techno tracks. Incredibly textured piece of work wich could have been already a classic since the golden basic channel / chain reaction years.
Owen Jay and Brian James closing it up with „chordless“. This is a mind blowing take of chord driven club material.

Nightime Drama – Metamethod – Exoshift EP – NTD008


ntd008antd008b



A year after his last outing on the label, Metamethod is back with a second EP for Nightime Drama. The man born Simon Haynes is a veteran of the scene who has worked under many different aliases and is now back at the techno frontline, creating the same sort of powerful grooves that made him so essential back in the 90s.
‘Exoshift’ opens things up with a lurching, low sung beat that rocks back and forth as frazzled synths and rusty frequencies skate about up top. It’s body music that really makes a mark while ‘Autofac’ then slips into more of a forward moving groove with prickly percussion and woodpecker hits all driving along a bleak techno landscape. Last of all, ‘SuperLifter’ marries bulky, broken sounding drums with celestial pads that glow white amongst the murk and greyness of the rest for he track. It is atmospheric, grainy techno for serious heads only.
