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.

Techno
  1. Modular Framework
  2. Displacer
  3. Displacer (Sleeparchive version 1)
  4. Displacer (Sleeparchive version 2)
Review: It's been a busy year for Belgian imprint Token with killer EPs coming from Rodhad, Xhin, Inigo Kennedy and the impending album from O [Phase]. Ctrls now presents his third EP for the label and matches his Northern Structures studio buddy Lasse Buhl with solo releases this year. As usual Ctrls has his Vermona drum machine cranking full tilt with the two tracks "Modular Framework" and "Displacer", with the latter reworked twice by Sleeparchive who turns it into something a little more stripped back and caustic. The Token techno machine marches on!

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.

Eschaton II

Cat: TOKEN 61. Rel: 09 May 16
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)
Played by: 3.14
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.

  14. Winter
  15. Aleph
  16. NGC5128
Review: This fourth album from British techno veteran Inigo Kennedy - his first since 2010's decidedly ambient September Pieces - has something of a "catch-all" feel. You see, Vaudeville refuses to stick to one sound, style or groove, instead referencing the many styles of techno and experimental electronic music that have inspired the popular producer over the course of his 18-year career. So, there are murky, IDM-inspired techno floor fillers (the melodious but faintly foreboding "Requiem"), early British psychedelic techno ("Plaintive"), dense, darkroom grooves ("Vallecula"), classic Yorkshire bleep and bass ("Petrichor"), Kompakt-ish organic techno ("Winter"), and spooky, droning ambience ("Narrative").

O aka PHASE
Cat: TOKEN 52. Rel: 27 Apr 15
Techno
  1. Tunnel Vision (7:02)
  2. Internal Conflicts (acts 1-3) (10:16)
Review: Tunnel Vision sees one of the Token label's main artists in O [Phase] return with some welcome new material, Ashley Burchett's first full release in almost a year. At two tracks deep, this 12" is geared purely for the deepest recesses of time in your club of choice as O [Phase] carves out some extended dark productions. There's an unstoppable forward momentum to "Tunnel Vision" as the thick low end and jagged percussion surge ever onwards, whilst "Internal Conflict (Acts 1-3)" might well be Burchett's craftiest production yet as Burchett draws out an increasingly torturous acid riff over ten minutes.

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.

Aphelion (unmixed CD)
Cat: TOKEN 48CD. Rel: 17 Nov 14
Techno
  1. A Phase - "Insectoid"
  2. Lucy - "Sana Sana Sana Cura Cura Cura"
  3. Ctrls - "X Y"
  4. Rodhad - "Haumea"
  5. Planetary Assault Systems - "The 808 Track" (parts 1 & 2)
  6. James Ruskin - "No Trace"
  7. Surgeon - "Fixed Action Pattern"
  8. Inigo Kennedy - "Arcing"
  9. Karenn - "Pace Yourself"
Review: Over the past two years, Belgian techno imprint Token has grown to become a label of importance equivalent to the likes of Delsin and Ostgut Ton. Aphelion is the label's second multi-artist collection, and gathers together exclusive and unreleased material from some of the scene's heaviest hitters. Lucy, Planetary Assault Systems and Surgeon are all present, with the latter's surging, sci-fi themed "Fixed Action Pattern" being one of the CD's clear highlights. To be fair, the quality threshold is high throughout, with the loose, acid-flecked bounce of James Ruskin's "No Trace" and Inigo Kennedy's "Arcing" - all locked-in Jeff Mills rhythms and glacial melodies - standing out.
