Review: Given the strength and frequency of his releases throughout 2013 and 2014, Joey Anderson has been surprisingly quiet this year. Clearly, he had his head down, working on this second full-length for regular home Dekmantel. Pleasingly, Invisible Switch shows the producer at the top of his game. Clearly influenced - in part, at least - by the spacey sounds of classic Detroit techno, it sees him treading the fine line between hypnotic, late night deep house, and undulating, deep space techno. Along the way, you'll find subtle nods to jazz, early British techno (see the weighty "Reset"), intelligent techno, trippy acid tracks (the early Orbital style fizz of "Amarna") and, on the throbbing "Nabta Playa", crunchy techno-funk.

Review: As the Dekmantel brand expands to incorporate the Selectors festival in Croatia, the Amsterdam collective still remain focused on delivering quality house and techno singles and albums. Another fine year for Dekmantel ends with the welcome arrival of Invisible Switch, a second album from US techno artist Joey Anderson. His is a unique and at times alien take on the artform, crafting percussive textures and oddly intoxicating synth lines that sound unmistakably like Joey Anderson and no others. This is very much the case with Invisible Switch, with tracks like "Reset" and "Tell Us Where" instantly gripping your attention and not letting go, whilst "Amarna" is the most bludgeoningly intense production yet from Anderson. The EOY list compilers will be kicking themselves they missed out on this one.

Deep House
  1. Pregnant (12:45)
  2. Star Butchers (7:48)
  3. Star Butchers (Darling edit) (7:30)
Review: Now very much a global concern, Dekmantel still remain strong to their local Amsterdam roots as evidenced on this new 12" from Awanto 3. Steven Van Hulle is arguably one of Dutch electronic music's unsung heroes, with a long history of production work dating back to time in Rednose Distrikt alongside Aardvarck and Kid Sublime. Van Hulle's been working as Awanto 3 for the past six years, racking up music for Rush Hour and Dekmantel. Fans of his work will recognise the 13 minute deep burning stomper "Pregnant", which originally featured as part of Dekmantel's 5 year anniversary compilation series. They've wisely revisited the track, giving it centre space on the A-side of this 12" with a fresh Awanto 3 cut, "Star Butchers", housed on the flip. Don't skip over the closing Daring Edit of "Star Butchers" either, it's a thing of beauty.

Review: Man of many pseudonyms Natal Zaks brings his Central project to Dekmantel, with the first of a series of EPs entitled Political Dance. It's an expansive affair, with the Danish producer delivering a quintet of tracks that meld distinctive Detroit techno, early US deep house, broken beat and deep space ambient influences into attractive new shapes. Highlights abound, from the rolling, loved-up grooves of the starry "Keep Love On Me", and Motor City deep house shuffle of "Body Issue", to the horizontal bliss of "Longest Way Between Two Points", and tech-jazz swing of standout "This Is Hand". Impressive stuff, all told.

Played by: Flori, Bodhi
Review: Natal Zaks is a talented chap. To date, he's released a large amount of very good material, under numerous pseudonyms, for a wide variety of labels. Here he returns to Dekmantel with the second part of the Political Dance series, under the now familiar Central guise. Just like its' predecessor, it's a deliciously positive, melodious and atmospheric affair. The brilliant "Detour King" sounds like Space Dimension Controller, Vincent Floyd and Boyd Jarvis jamming on Mars, while "Political Dance" is a deliciously loved-up journey into early New Jersey deep house, with some distinctively spacey flourishes to boot. Zaks also doffs a cap to ambient house era intelligent techno on the luscious "Convenient Departures".

  2. Hit The Road (5:26)
  3. Trials Of Love (7:06)
  4. Slow Motion Disaster (6:23)
Review: We've already been treated to one bonafide classic Entro Senestre 12" this year in the shape of the WT Records released ES ("Rosegold" being the standout) and the producer really spoils us with another superb record in the shape of this Dekmantel debut. The producer, real name Jon Beall, is quite the talent. "The Screen" is Drexciyan-like frenetic electro with a trance, gothic-like glow, while "Hit The Road" is grubby and downright dirty; that's until those delayed chords hit. Chi-town influences, synths and emotional progressions fuel "Trails Of Love", while for some hardcore techno action check out "Slow Motion Disaster". Each track is as good as the next on this record, and yeah it's versatile, but we prefer the word: killer.

Techno
  1. Master Jack
  2. Magnet
Review: Hot on the heels of Detroit legend Robert Hood's first EP for Dekmantel, Paradygm Shift, comes this second volume of typically forthright techno cuts. Opener "Master Jack" is hypnotic and heavy, with spacey synth loops and starburst electronics riding a thumping bassline and relentless rhythm track (think fizzing cymbals, snappy drum machine handclaps, colossal kick drums etc). "Magnet" is altogether deeper affair, but no less devastating. Hood is a master at wringing maximum dancefloor effectiveness out of the least number of intertwined elements, and here works wonders with little more than stomping drums, metallic electronics, and some well-placed special effects.

Review: Given their frequent habit of charging off in different musical directions, predicting the contents of a new Juju & Jordash record is getting increasingly difficult. Down To The Roach, their latest 12" for regular home Dekmantel, is typically wide-ranging, variously exploring bouncy fusions of techno futurism and whimsical deep house (the title track and its' accompanying dub), new age-influenced dream house (the bizarrely titled "Bean Bag Motel"), and spiraling, synthesizer-heavy house/electronic disco hybrids (the stargazing goodness of "Lights at Night"). It goes without saying that all four tracks are imaginative, immaculately produced, and hugely enjoyable. Excellent work all round.

  1. Riding High
  2. Than Sadet
Review: Makam was once hugely productive, but in recent years his release schedule has slowed to a crawl. He hasn't been slacking, though; in fact, he's used that time to record a sophomore album, which will drop on Dekmantel later this year. This 12" provides a sneak peak of what to expect. A-side "Riding High" is something of a triumph, and thrillingly hard to describe. It feels a little like a tropical take on Isolee's "Beau Mot Plage", with rich, jammed-out organs and bouncy, smartly programmed percussion. In contrast, flipside "San Thadet" is one of the most beautiful ambient compositions you'll hear all year, and comes complete with twittering clarinets, tropical bird noises and effortlessly humid electronics.

Review: The fact that the vinyl edition of Motor City Drum Ensemble's Selektors compilation - the first in Dekmantel's crate-digging series - sold out in record time tells you all you need to know about this superb set. Packed with obscure, hard-to-find gems, it does a fantastic job in showcasing the depth, quality and variety of Danilo Plessow's record collection. Check, for example, the breezy soulfulness of DJ Slym Fas's 1997 gem "Luv Music", Risque III's early Chicago deep house killer "Essence Of A Dream", and the ludicrously expensive (if Discogs is to be believed) jazz-funk-goes-disco boogie brilliance of Licky's 1979 obscurity "African Rock". If you dig disco, deep house and boogie, you need this in your life.

Review: Danny 'Legowelt' Wolfers describes the music he makes under the Occult Orientated Crime alias as "an accumulation of 20 years of musical research and training, and what affect it has on the brain". Read into that what you will; in practice, his OOC output allows Wolfers to explore the more deep and cosmic end of the ambient spectrum, with sly nods towards jazz and movie soundtracks amongst the Motor City synthesizers, buried spoken word vocals and intergalactic chord progressions. The fantastically titled Just A Clown On Crack is the first OOC release to make it to wax, and effortlessly recalls the early '90s glory days of ambient house and intelligent techno, whilst still retaining many of Wolfers' stylistic trademarks.

Review: Cyclicality Between Procyon & Gomeisa is a lofty title by anyone's standards, but firmly in-keeping with the psychedelic influences behind Vakula's distinctive brand of inspired electronic wizardry. It's fair to say that the lauded Ukranian is on fine form on this third studio full-length, serving up 14 trippy tracks that variously fuse heady ambience, dub techno, new age deep house, electronic jazz, dubbed-out blues and, perhaps most surprisingly, cosmic disco (see the excellent "Intergalactic Funk"). As usual, Vakula's production skills and unique vision shine through, giving the album a coherent feel despite his impressive, genre-bending antics.

Review: Since making his debut a decade ago, Belgian-in-Berlin Peter Van Hoesen has earned a reputation as one of techno's most reliable producers. Perhaps it was that reliability that persuaded Dekmantel to sign him up as the debutant of their new UFO vinyl-only series. There's naturally plenty to get excited about on Quadra, with each of the four tracks hitting the spot. "Cartesian Taiko" sounds like Derrick May reworking Vangelis' Blade Runner soundtrack after a few love pills, while "Duet Dub" is a crustier, more urgent affair, full of pinging electronics and post-industrial sleaze. "P2ME" laces oddball electronic bleeps and stabs over a relentless techno groove, before he breaks up the beats on the trippy-but-dense electro shuffle of "Quadra
