  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!

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.

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.

  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").

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.

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. Haumea
  2. Haumea (O Phase Satellite mix)
  3. Haumea (Dirt mix)
Review: After the success of Rodhad's Token debut, Spomeniks, it was only a matter of time before we saw the much-loved German return to the bustling Token, and for lovers of techno made to be played in a power plant this record is a no-brainer. Rodhad provides two versions of Humea, and the first is deep and bleepy with hi-hats that cut straight through the mix, while the dirt mix is heavier in bass with bleeps that are scattered not singular. Meanwhile label mainstay Phase provides this release with the one remix, which as you can expect is complimentary to the original and sleek as always with a nifty surprise breakdown.

  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.

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.
