During the past week we’ve added over 20 killer new tracks to our New Techno Playlist on Spotify ranging from the left field and experimental to the hard and functional to the deep and melodic.

Tbilisi producer Lucid Void debuts for ARTS with ‘Aspect’ from his Sacred Intentions EP. English left field techno and sound connoisseur Forest Drive West just dropped a two tracker for Whities and ‘Other’ is our pick of the two in a line-ball decision.
