London based producer and DJ Ryan Aitchison aka Mella Dee kicks the current incarnation of our New Techno Spotify Playlist off with a creative bang with the manic ‘Stack Select’ off his new warehouse inspired EP Techno Belters. Fellow Londoner Jordan Saxton aka Viers continues the inventiveness with the insistent ‘I’m Gonna Get’ before Doncaster born India Jordan marks her foray into the techno arena with the LFO, Nitro and ragga inspired ‘WARPER’. Edinburgh hardware veteran Neil Landstrumm doesn’t fuck around by fucking around with the super raw ‘Jackshit’ from his new EP Hell Is Other People. French left field electronic experimentalist Hermione Frank aka rRoxymore completes an eclectic first five with the highly attuned, soft centred yet hard edged ‘PPS21’ off her excellent debut album Face To Phase.
The playlist then takes a harder darker turn beginning with the statically propulsive ‘Fulländad värid’ by Swedish producer Evigt Mörker from his first class debut full length Krona for Northern Electronics. A Spanish duo that should need no introduction, Oscar Mulero and P.E.A.R.L. have released a new shapeshifting EP of high functionality for the latter’s appropriately titled label Falling Ethics. Titled Blood On The Water, the two standout tracks for us feature here, Mulero’s ‘Sangre I’ and P.E.A.R.L.’s ‘Sangre IV’. The next three tracks come from two compilations that came out on wax earlier this month but were just released to stream yesterday. Eric Fetcher‘s off centre, no holds barred ‘Thera’ features on Time Travel, a 4 tracker EP from French label Binary Cells as does the heavy pacy ambience of ‘Lichtjaar’ from Dutch duo Michiel Steennis & Kaj Tyszka aka Moving Thoughts. The second compilation in question is the third tranche from the 100th release compilation from Spanish label New Rhythmic Records. From it comes the imposing ‘FLoating’ by Argentine producer KØLPØS. We wrote about and covered the first two parts here.
We then move back into for want of a better term more serene but no less heightened territory with the nonchalance of the stupendously good ‘Nation’ by Frankfurt based producer Christian Burkhardt from his new EP ENDZ030 for EASTENDERZ. Toronto veteran producer and label owner Greg Gow then follows with the intoxicating groove of the perfectly paced of ‘Depth Control’ from his new Format EP for Restructured Recordings. The ambient sonic adventure provided by ‘Eternal Blue’ comes from Brooklyn producer Aurora Halal from her new EP Liquiddity for Mutual Dreaming. The delicate depths of ‘Esotera’ is the title track from the new 2 track collaborative EP for Nie Wieder Schlafen from friends in sound and deed, Damascus born and Paris based producer Ahmad Qatramis aka Quatri and Californian equivalent Nasser. The understated sheen of ‘6EQUJ5’ comes from Glasgow producer Simon Stokes aka Petrichor from his second album Narisshu on Soma. And the enveloping and transportive ‘Kevlar Sands’ comes from Berlin based Canadian producer Ryan James Ford who brings a variety of influences and ideas to the table on his new diversely stylistic EP Eastern Exposure.
Taking things up a notch again thereafter is the frenetic drama of ‘Mental Disaggregation’ the title track of the new EP by German techno producer Ibou Mbodji aka Eònan. The high level torque generated by ‘All Or Nothing’ is generated French techno producer Sebastien Michel aka UVB and is the title track of his new EP for Berlin’s Body Theory. The beguiling acid trip that is ‘Clear Sights’ comes from German duo Cassegrain from their new EP for Arcing Seas, ARCS-08 before Altstadt Echo ends this write up of this weeks new tracks with drifting groove of ‘Because Were Carrying The Fire’ from the Berlin based American’s 1933 EP for Modern Cathedrals.
Rounding out the 30 tracks are; Lithuanian deep techno producer Aleksandr Martinkevič aka Grad_U, Adelaide born and Berlin based producer Emma Louise Sainsbury aka Eluize & Paris producer Perrin Sauviat aka La Fraicheur, English producer Darren Roberts aka Deepbass, his more than up and coming countryman Billy Turner, the mysterious Judas, German producer Michael Koczynski aka Michael Klein, Italian experimentalist Thomas Feriero aka Maenad Veyl, incognito American producer Topdown Dialectic and the collaboration between Amsterdam based Italian artist Cyb & Dutch artist Elisa Batti.
