Berlin vinyl imprint Aim reach their fifth release and to celebrate, they've out together a double cut with seven tracks of deep house and chugging techno. Jacques Bon & Nicolas Villebrun commence proceedings with "Pyramid", a soaring synth fuelled deep house number followed by Ocp's percussive and bass heavy "Raise Your Legs". Christopher Rau takes the flip and plunges into pitch black techno and dark trips; the mood lifts instantly though as Xdb's smooth and deep track "Balance" takes the reigns. On the second slab of wax, "Nasty Nate" from duo Oskar Offerman & Moomin is balmy, atmospheric and impeccably arranged - our pick of the bunch. Lastly, both "Gasolinum" and "The Rhythm" stick to pleasing experimental and downtempo techno structures.
