We kick off this update of our multinational and multifaceted New Techno playlist moving seamlessly from Italy up the The Netherlands across to the Czech Republic further up to Denmark and then down to France.

We begin with ‘Floating In The Red River’ a piece of hybrid electronic brilliance sporting a killer breakbeat interlude wedged between two doses of heavy techno from Italian producer Netsh off his new EP for Arts, Artificial Sin. Dutch producer Albert Van Abbe is next with followed by the experimental minimalism of ‘Goldleaf Paperwaste’ from his new EP Bloodhoney Triggerbee. Czech producer Alfred Czital follows with the title track off his new Lippa EP before Danish producer Schacke makes an appearance with the propulsive and powerful ‘To The Outer Limits And Back’ from his Welcome To The Pleasure Dome four tracker. Then French left field experimentalist Bambounou returns with the organic ‘Temple’ off his new EP for Whities, 21.

The exhilarating ‘Cricoid Pressure from American producer Rrose is next from Laurel Halo’s DJ Kicks selection before the straight up ambience of ‘Radio Static’, the most techno based track on our album of our week release World from the French/Belgian duo of Memorial Home.
French producer Perrin Sauviat aka La Fraicheur has teamed up with fellow Berlin based expatriate Leonard de Leonard for ‘Murky’, a dark and moody track looking at both the uncertainty and heightened thrills of the queer experience in their temporarily adopted city. Milan producer Wrong Assessment is next with the locomotive like ‘Ubik’ off his new EP of the same name while Croatian DJ/Producer Insolate follows ‘Flare’, the four to the floor title track off her new EP. Then Blicz returns with the grinding ‘Yellow Revolution’ off his new EP Modern Revolt.
