Techno
  1. Jinx (6:41)
  2. Scanners (7:21)
Review: Forest Drive West is (or are?) still a mysterious figure to us, but we kinda like it to be that way; there is something pure and intriguing about an artist who prefers to keep themselves in relative shadows nowadays, so we tip our hat to it. The producer has already appeared for the Livity Sound massive, a brief but illuminating cameo for their Dnuos Ytivil offshoot that offered two steely slices of tooled-up techno. He's back with another two-tracker, first up with "Jinx" and its reverberated filter of moody 4/4 barely held together by a swarm of percussion and sporadic kick drums - a true bog room joint! "Scanners", on the B-side, is equally cavernous in texture, dipping and rising at a pace that we're increasingly beginning to see as the Forest Drive West standard; this is techno for those who don't like the genre, or better yet, for the DJs looking for a bit more movement in their sets. We love it. This is a keeper.

Techno
  1. System (10:42)
  2. Show Them (8:18)
Review: The next fresh-faced artist to follow in the footsteps of Batu, Hodge, Bruce and Simo Cell and pass through the Livity Sound School of excellence is the unheralded Forest Drive West. All we know for sure is that Forest Drive West hails from London, and is quite possibly but not necessarily named after a street in Leytonstone. Focusing on this debut release though, Forest Drive West hones in on an approach - long form track length and entrancing progression - that nods more to classic minimal techno than the usual nifty timespan of more 'UK' or 'soundsystem' minded tunes as you would commonly find on Livity. However, the mood is certainly Livity-compatible with its sparse approach to atmosphere and tough rhythmic arsenal. In simpler terms, this is another Livity 12" of A-grade club material.

Techno
  1. Amor Fati (Peverelist remix) (6:13)
  2. Tilikum (Hodge remix) (6:07)
Review: Ahead of the release of the Ytivil Dnuos compilation, Peverelist has opted to turn out a 12" that revisits two tracks from the recent past and sheds some fresh light on them. The label boss himself takes "Amor Fati" by Hodge to task, and turns out a delicately poised but satisfyingly weighty version replete with twinkling synth lines and jagged rhythmic incantations. Hodge meanwhile gets to have some fun with Bruce's "Tilikum", and weaves an emotional techno variation out of the component parts that stands amongst his most impassioned works to date, thanks in no small part to the heart-rending sweeps of chord that blanket the peak of the track.

  7. A Bluish Shadow (3:44)
  8. Bubbling Under (5:04)
  9. Shots Fired (5:41)
Review: The steady rise of Joe Cowton has been such that Utility, his long-awaited debut album, is arguably one of the most hotly anticipated techno sets of 2016. Happily, it's a fine set, brilliantly showcasing his instinctive way with booming, stripped-back drum patterns, sparse textures, and alien electronics. While there are forays into more house leaning pastures - see the dreamy, metallic shuffle of "Scido" - and cascading ambience ("Some Cats" and "A Bluish Shadow"), it's naturally the album's more bombastic, club-ready stompers that really stand out. These include two subtle reinventions of early British bleep techno ("Balance" and "Shots Fired") that aptly showcase the London-based producer's Northern roots.

Techno
  1. Cellar Door (6:57)
  2. Piste Jaune (5:45)
Review: Having previously used their dnuoS ytiviL offshoot to release material from their nearest and dearest (think Batu, Bruce, Hodge and Alex Coulton), Bristol's Livity Sound crew turns to unknown French producer Simo Cell. The two tracks showcased here are a rather fine introduction to this newcomer, with opener "Piste Jaune" offering a clandestine blend of stuttering electro bass, discordant analogue percussion hits and spooky electronics. The mystery man goes for the jugular on "Cellar Door", with pitched-down, bleep style melodies and liquid electronics riding an off-kilter, broken techno groove. Another fine Livity release.

  2. Obi 1 (5:41)
  3. Away From Keyboard (6:54)
  4. As Long As We Have Those Things (5:24)
Review: Frenchman Simon Aussel is Simo Cell, who appeared for Livity Sound's sister label Dnuos Ytivil last year on the rather brilliant Cellar Door / Piste Jaune 12". For his new Gliding EP, he proves that he is right at home on the Bristolian label with his blend of raw, rough and ready broken house jams fitting right in with the rest of the label's aesthetic. Starting out with the rusty shuffle of the deep and dreamy title track, the A side also presents "Obi 1" for something a bit more darker and intense; sonar blips face off with cavernous kicks and sparse, delay drenched percussion: a very paranoid experience. On the flip, the stripped and tunnelling techno tool "Away From keyboard" will appeal to a wide cross range of DJs, until he closes out this fine EP with the lush and immersive ambient journey "As Long As We Have Those Things".

Techno
  1. Swarm (5:08)
  2. Tempora (5:13)
Review: Via Maris, who mysteriously also calls himself B.Burke, first appeared late last year on the newly founded Mechanical Reproductions, a confident and promising label in itself. However, today is all about Livity Sound, and the fact that they've spotted this young talent. As usual, the Bristol dudes get top marks, both for presentation, and also for having swiped an artist who is perfectly matched to their inimitable sound. Via Maris bursts through the A-side in what is a veritable "Swarm" of bleeps, kicks, aqueous cowbells, and exactly the right sort of grimey swagger. On the flip, "Tempora" clicks its broken, slithering percussion over a bed of hollow sonics, and we have to say that it really is a rather ominous affair. We love it, though. Both tunes. Big up, Livity.
