  4. Hard Crew (Mechanizm & Kin remix) (4:55)
Review: UK rave veterans Altern 8 hadn't put out new music in over 25 years. And then they dropped new single 'Hard Crew', which has been a staple of their live sets in recent times. The original is a bristling big beat tune with crashing drums and a snaking, filthy baseline. Things get more dreamy and leggy on the Denham Audio remix before two further versions head into hardcore and then jungle territory. A percentage of the profits of this release goes to the WeAreViable campaign which hopes to help the arts and events industries survive the pandemic.

  1. A Night At Shelley's Laserdrome (6:17)
  2. Return To Shelley's (Metrodome, Ill Bosco & Begins XR2 M6 Mission) (3:14)
  3. Chop Up The Tories (5:35)
  4. Bang Into Breakbeach (4:41)
Review: DJ Absolutely Shit put out a first EP in 2017 that now fetches eye watering amounts on Discogs. That was apparently a reissue of some old music found in storage, but now comes a first proper release that is just as irresistible. 'A Night at Shelly's' was first put out on that white label teaser, but by now is a bona fide banger. The 90s pianos over an elastic bassline, then the explosions of funky breaks, just hit different. There's a jazzy beatdown next to that on the a-side, then trance laced breakbeat joy on 'Chop Up The Tories' and last but not least, a real pinger in the form of 'Bang Into Breakbeach.'

  5. Schutt & Asche (4:16)
  6. Premonition Of A Flashback (alternate version) (5:18)
  7. Streiflicht (3:46)
Review: German duo Extrawelt step away from their long time label home of Cocoon here for thew first time. In landing on Further Electronix they venture into more unrestrained musical territory and take full advantage of that across a double album of powerful, hardware based tracks. There is still some big room techno fair, but also more silky breakbeats, futuristic electro and plenty of grey areas in between. The drum programming on 'Ungerade' is an early standout while fans of harder tackle will prefer the manic energy of dystopian banger 'Schutt & Asche.'

Went Too Far
Went Too Far (140 gram vinyl 12" repress)
Cat: PILOT 01. Rel: 16 Apr 21
  1. Went Too Far (6:02)
  2. Get Into It (5:05)
  3. Selectoor (5:21)
  4. Illumination (6:02)
Review: Cologne's Johannes Kolter made his name as DJOKO, but his most recent outing under that alias for Talman Records also included a pair of tracks credited to Kolter. It's that artistic alias he's chosen to use on this single, which introduces the world to debutant imprint PILOT. It's an EP that's well worth checking out, not least for deliciously bass-heavy opener 'Went Too Far', a weighty, stab-happy and sample-heavy affair that recalls the occasional electro tracks made by early blepe & bass and hardcore producers. Garage-influenced breakbeat workout 'Get Into It' is another funk-fuelled treat, while jungle-influenced breaks shuffler 'Selectoor'[sic] is a bass-heavy beast. The German successfully rounds off a fine EP via 'Illumination', which reminded us a little of Orbital's most melodious early moments.

Ryoko 02
Ryoko 02 (limited hand-stamped 10")
Cat: RYOKO 02. Rel: 06 Apr 21
  1. 140 Break (7:18)
  2. Old Buzz (5:14)
Review: Ryoko is an imprint existing on the fringes of drum'n'bass, run by prolific Mancunian producer J.S.Zeiter. Known for his enigmatic project from the late '90s, he's since become recognised as a pioneer of dub techno. Now into its second release, you can be sure to expect more off-kilter and experimental UK sounds on Ryoko 02. We have '140 Break' on the A side, veering between knackered and breakneck and back again on this true stepper of the most unusual kind. On the flip, we have the more straight ahead rolling drama of 'Old Buzz' hammering the message home in proper junglist fashion.

Particle Shower
Cat: NFR 004. Rel: 13 Apr 21
  1. Photon Stream (5:36)
  2. Ancient Love (9:29)
  3. There Must Be A Way (6:35)
  4. Magnonic Transmission (7:15)
Review: Magnonic Signal label boss Spin Fidelity aka Antonio Velazquez is well known for his techno outings Subwax Excursions and Parang Recordings. Here he lends his consider skills to a fourth release from the Brussels label Nightflight Records. There is some glistening old school jack and cosmic synth work on opener 'Photon Stream' that gets you locked in from the off. He then shifts down a gear for the widescreen cyber-funk of 'Ancient Love' before heading off on a silky electro tip on 'There Must Be A Way.' Closing out a hugely varied EP is the trippy acid and melodic workout that is 'Magnonic Transmission.'
