Saudade EP (12")
Cat: TOKEN 59. Rel: 14 Mar 16
Techno
  1. Night Adrift (6:18)
  2. Hiraeth (6:31)
Review: French producer Jeanson Antonin aka Antigone represents the new wave of techno artists, and he has made his mark on labels like Token and Demented. Saudade is his follow up to his 2015 debut on Kr!z imprint and it showcases why he is held in high regard. "Night Adrift" is a tense, tough roller, its metallic drums precisely crafted. On the flip, he delivers "Hiraeth"; there, the rhythm is intricate yet also dense and robust, with a tonal bleep fading in and out of the arrangement and the listener captivated by the few elements that Antonin has seamlessly brought together to have such an impact.

Nonuser (12")
Cat: TOKEN 60. Rel: 18 Apr 16
Techno
  1. Vocabulary (5:52)
  2. Nonuser (6:12)
  3. The Wave (6:47)
Played by: Black asteroid
Review: Token has been home to all of CTRLS work since he appeared in 2012, and Nonuser solidifies what has been a very fruitful relationship. The follow up to 2015's Users (it's not hard to see a pattern emerging), it starts with "Vocabulary". Tight, steely rhythms provide a basis for bleak synths that break and burst like grey waves against a harbour wall. The title track is more of a heads-down affair, as the Danish producer realises his vision for looped techno, albeit one where razor sharp hats and a bleating siren cut through the dense rhythms. Finally, there's a deeper track, "The Wave". Based on a dense, percussive groove, those incremental progressions up and down the melody scale that will set spines tingling.

Techno
  1. Deus Irae (7:27)
  2. Those Who Obey (4:33)
  3. Answer My Prayer (5:59)
  4. No Other Gods Before Me (5:48)
Review: The debut, self-titled Eschaton release from Ancient Methods and Orphx provided Belgian techno powerhouse Token with one of THE defining 12"s of 2014. Given the rapturous applause for the project, it's no surprise to see Token boss Kr!z has been knocking at the door of casa Methods and Orphx to get some more Eschaton material. The four-track Eschaton II sees the German-Canadian production unit offer up a more varied approach together without losing any of the industrial menace that made their debut offering such a compelling proposition. Big drums are the marauding, dominating element on opener "Deus Irae", whilst "Those Who Obey" pulls you through the abstracted, industrial mire. "Answer My Prayer" sounds primed to soundtrack a clubscene in any mooted sequel to the Wesley Snipes-fronted Blade series whilst the appropriately-named closer "No Other Gods Before Me" is an invitation to wander through the sonic equivalent of Dante's Inferno.

Cathedral (12")
Cat: TOKEN 27. Rel: 28 Jan 13
Techno
  1. Cathedral
  2. Chamber
  3. Accordion
Review: Inigo Kennedy's last record for Token was a definite record of two halves, with one track providing severe, Berghain ready techno, and the other providing ghostly melodies with echoes of Aphex Twin. It's a similarly engaging story on Cathedral, with the title track providing a fierce breakbeat together with a cavernous harpsichord melody, and though it may not seem like the most obvious of combinations, its pulsing bass undercurrent ensures Kennedy's usual power is not diminished. "Chamber" plays things slightly straighter, providing a more forceful dancefloor cut imbued with gentle hints of dub techno that bristle with the producer's usual freshness, while "Accordion" completes things with another subtly melodic cut filled with unpredictability, as stuttering drums are surrounded by synths that seem to fade in and out of view. Kennedy has gone from strength to strength with each release and this record is no different.

NGC EP (12" limited to 300 copies)
Cat: TOKEN 62. Rel: 27 Jun 16
Techno
  1. NGC6826 (Blinking Eye) (7:51)
  2. NGC6543 (Cat's Eye) (6:23)
Review: The legendary Inigo Kennedy is back on Belgian powerhouse Token with the NGC EP. On the A side "NGC6826 (Blinking Eye)" is a broken beat wall of sound with wailing synth leads that sound at times like bagpipes; this is emotive and truly awe-inspiring stuff. On the flip "NGC6543 (Cat's Eye)" is like a jagged and angular hard electro excursion with its aggressive beat that falls apart at the seams only just enough to give it some captivating looseness, all the while the same ethereal qualities of the previous version are there giving the track its unique atmosphere. Pretty amazing stuff here Mr Kennedy!

Review: It's some 15 years since Ashley Burchett first donned the O (Phase) moniker to lay down some surging London techno for Cosmic Records. A decade and a half on, he continues to impress with the moodiness and atmospheric intent of his hypnotic dancefloor concoctions. There's much to enjoy on this second full-length - his debut album, Frames Of Reference, dropped in 2013 - from the intergalactic electronics and Drexciyan beats of "Remote", and the looped marimba melodies and sludgy pulse of the title track, to the bleak, ghostly hypnotism of "Increment", and hustling broken techno of "Nep-Tune". This is proper techno for the dancefloor, with enough subtle variations and neat ideas to please all but the pickiest of listeners.

Techno
  1. Fixed Action Pattern
  2. Fixed Action Pattern (dub)
Review: ** REPRESS ** It seems like the last few months of 2014 are going to be quite big for a newly bearded up Surgeon with a series of enticing looking reissues of 90s material under the SRX banner due to commence soon, as well as an incoming British Murder Boys retrospective on DNS. First up, the UK techno legend makes his debut proper on Token with Fixed Action Pattern, a two-track 12? of distorted, broken beat techno tailor-made for the Belgian label. Essentially two variants of the same track, the A Side original is exactly the sort of searing, peak time wall shaker you'd expect when Surgeon meets Token, and it's complemented nicely by a B Side dub version that the label quite aptly compare to Lee Scratch Perry dabbling in industrial electronics.
