Review: Since 2010, Germany's Barker & Baumecker have been a solid, reassuring presence in the Ostgut Ton roster; the two producers invariably deliver the goods, whether it's militant techno or more mischievous strains of broken bass music. Their last LP, 2012's Transsektoral, was an ice-cold techno excursion, but this time they seem to be in a more expansive state of mind with this new album, Turns, a voyage across desolate ambient plains and symphonic dance floor experiments. The two openers, "Senden" and "Encipher" are the perfect entrance to an eerie world of molecular sonics, a sound which evolves further into the more beat-laden "Decipher", and the mechanical beats of "Club Entropicana". "Technogate" is a beatless blend of field recordings and echoing harmonies, while "Turnhalle" bounces away at a more uplifting tempo, "Nocturnal" chucks some breaks into the techno mix, and "Statik" ties things off with a sleek, polished 4/4 finish that is testament to the variety of styles that these two are capable of delivering.

  5. Error (1st Take) (5:45)
  6. Metalloid (5:46)
Review: On his first solo album in five long years, Berlin techno heavyweight Marcel Dettmann is in scintillating form. The six tracks that make up "Test File" are in some ways typical of his output, in other ways surprisingly atypical. Compare and contrast, for example, the title track's buzzing, mind-altering, percussively dense Berghain techno intensity, and the deliciously low-slung, atmospheric and dubby "Torch", where Dettmann dips the tempo and looks towards post-dubstep rhythms, post-punk and gnarled electronica for inspiration. Or, for that matter, the smooth and atmospheric dub techno hypnotism of "Error (1st Take)", the head-nodding dark-room house haziness of "Autumn 77" and the blistering peak-time techno assault of "Ascending". All hit the mark impressively and bear the hallmarks of Dettmann's signature style, even of their aims are impressively varied.

  8. From Up & Down
  9. Three Is A Charm (with Randweg)
Review: While Nick Hoppner's 2015 debut album, Folk, was rather impressive, it would be fair to say that this follow-up is even better. While that set was largely rooted in hazy and evocative deep house and melodic techno, Work sees the Panoramabar resident drawing from a far deeper pool of influences. So, he begins with a superb chunk of melodious IDM ("All By Themselves (My Belle)") and the throbbing, warehouse-friendly jauntiness of "Clean Living" before dropping the album's first tech-tinged house roller ("In My Mind"). The pattern continues throughout, as he variously turns his hand to future garage (the jazzy "Hole Head"), watery dub techno ("The Dark Segment"), sumptuous late '80s dream house ("Fly Your Colours") and superb electronic/acoustic fusion (clarinet-sporting closer, "Three is a Charm").

A World Of Service
A World Of Service (LP + MP3 download code)

  7. Vapor Dentro (4:07)
  8. Wish (3:58)
Review: Nobody could accuse Spanish producer JASSS of being backwards and coming forwards on this, her Ostgut Ton debut. The Berlin-based label, Berghain's recorded outlet, usually conjures sonic images in line with the stereotypical soundtrack of the club's main hall, but anyone who has spent a reasonable amount of time in the imprint's back catalogue will know that's a reductive assumption. The crew regularly veer into all kinds of leftfield electronic avenues.

Even so, JASSS' arrival marks one of the wildest rides this platform has ever offered listeners. From the resoundingly emotional and joyous opening wide bands of synth, 'Birds You Can Name', to the euphoric industrialism of 'Busto' and the operatic, neo-tropical pop of 'A World of Service', this is benchmark-setting curveball stuff we cannot get enough of.

Review: Although arguably best known for her angular, industrial-influenced techno output, Siliva Jimenez Alvarez AKA Jasss has proved adept at delivering oddball electronica, modular-rich ambient and the kind of scuzzy industrial pop of which Trent Reznor would undoubtedly prove. A World of Service, her sophomore album and first for Ostgut Ton, builds on the latter side of her sound while expanding into new musical territory such as autotune-sporting future R&B ('Luis'), buzzing downtempo darkness (the immersive and intoxicating, percussion-rich 'Busto'), leftfield 21st century synth-pop (the curious but excellent 'A World Of Service') and even a dash of jangling, radio-friendly cheeriness ('In Your Mouth'). An impossible album to pigeonhole, but one that's consistently excellent and genuinely worthy of further inspection.

Nolove (12")

  3. Polar (6:20)
  4. Eden (4:23)
Review: All hail the return of Etapp Kyle. For over 10 years this ever-intriguing producer has been orbiting the Ostgut Ton axis, from Ben Klock's label to Unterton and lastly Ostgut Ton itself back in 2017. After some time away, Kyle is back with a new EP that was wholly worth the wait. "Nolove" is a dreamy, fractured slice of techno abstraction with insanely detailed production chops, while "Unseen" opens things up with some more forthright drums that move like a more linear take on the Shackleton sound. "Polar" thrums and pulses with sound design as much as beats, but the icy atmospheric swirls are the star of the show. "Eden" strips things back with a beautiful, plaintive electronica finisher that keeps percussion to a minimum and focuses on gossamer synth lines to melt away to.

Odds Against Us

Drum And Bass
  1. Odds Against Us (5:48)
  2. BC 2 (5:33)
  3. Rhythm Ritual (5:51)
Review: The ever versatile and innovative Martyn goes back to his bass roots again with three explorations into three of the UK's most important offerings to the dancefloor: UKG, D&B and dubstep (the genre in which Martyn first made his name) The title track is an industrial strength two-step vibe-out with gloopy, oily textures around the molten steppy rhythm. "BC 2", meanwhile, takes us back to the late 90s/early 2000s. Think Photek, Johnny L, Source Direct and you're in the right dance. Finally "Rhythm Ritual" takes us back to 2008 with a bright bashy technoid twist on the ever-evolving dubstep schematics. Timeless.

  5. Mass Deception (5:22)
  6. Proxy Contact (2:51)
  7. De-patterning (5:47)
  8. Splintered Heels (5:51)
Review: Ostgut Ton's first significant release of 2020 comes courtesy of Phase Fatale, an industrial techno-focused alias of New Yorker-in-Berlin Hayden Payne. "Scanning Backwards" is the producer's second album and is every bit as muscular, forthright and mind-altering as you'd expect, though the presence of clear EBM and industrial funk influences also ensures a healthy dose of rhythmic funk beneath the growling electronics, riotous riffs and slightly panicked Nitzer Ebb style melodies. Highlights are plentiful and include the metallic dancefloor paranoia of "Blinding By Oath", the pitched-down, wall-of-sound creepiness of "During The Freezing Process", the Test Department-does-ambient vibes of "Proxy Contact" and the throbbing intensity of "De-patterning".

  7. Work A Change (5:29)
  8. Work A Change (instrumental) (5:31)
Review: While Steffi and Virginia have been working together on and off for the best part of a decade, "Work A Change" is undoubtedly their most significant collaborative work to date (both in terms of its expansive nature and the quality of music on show). With Virginia handling singing duties throughout, "Work A Change" rides on waves of tasty electro grooves and hazy synth-pop motifs and futuristic electronics. It's a blueprint that guarantees goodness throughout, from the quietly euphoric shuffle of opener "Be True To Me" and the pulsating dancefloor fizz of "Help Me Understand" (one of two cuts showcased in both vocal and instrumental forms), to the high-tempo thrust of "Until You're Begging", the bass-heavy, future dancehall wonkiness of "Internal Bleeding" and triumphantly intergalactic title track.

Rise And Shine

  2. Countdown (4:49)
  3. Bird Cave (2:02)
  4. Distance (2:39)
  5. Cruising (6:30)
Review: 2018 marked the 30th anniversary of Berlin scene legend Peter Kuschnereit's (aka Substance or DJ Pete) DJ career, as well as his inaugural full release titled Rise And Shine on Ostgut Ton (the label released 2 of his tracks on compilations previously), making this the first Substance EP since 1998. Kuschnereit hits the ground running with title track "Rise And Shine", a gentle, sunrise-ready fusion of sparse, echo-laden percussion hits, poignant chords and glacial IDM melodies, before jauntily heading towards the dancefloor on the richly percussive, metallic and ghostly electro/techno fusion of "Countdown". His love of buzzing, faintly foreboding and strangely exotic ambience comes to the fore on "Bird Cave", while distance sees him successfully dubbing out similar-sounding electronic motifs fusing his deep, industrial aesthetic as Substance with the resonant bass-heavy leanings of DJ Pete over a clicking, hypnotic rhythm track.

  8. Fast Null
Review: Given his relatively high productivity, it's something of a surprise to find that A Series of Shocks is Tobias Freund's first solo album since 2011. Happily, this return to longtime home Ostgut Ton is impressive. Beginning with the beatless melodic pulse of the Steve Reich-influenced "Entire", Freund works his way through a range of clandestine techno compositions, touching on claustrophobic acid and intense late night thump ("Testcard", "Ya Po"), scratchy Chicago jack ("Instant"), deeper moods ("The Scheme of Things") and, most thrillingly, early '90s influenced intelligent techno. It's in these moments - "If" and tactile ambient breaks of "Cursor Item Only" - that A Series of Shocks really flies.

  4. Spectrum V (6:05)
Review: Given his usual productivity and regular release schedule, it's something of a surprise to find that Helium Sessions is Tobias Freund's first solo single for two years. Typically, the Ostgut Ton man is in a bleak mood, expertly fusing dense, high-octane drums, horror-influenced electronics, creepy textures and paranoid field recordings on superb opener "LAGEOS 1". "Helios" increases the tempo further via seemingly sped-up drum patterns and grandiose, room-filling chords, while closer "Spectrum V" throws a little industrial attitude into the mix - alongside skittish, pitched-downm jungle-style breakbeats - to complete the paranoid, dystopian mood. This latter track is particularly bold, suggesting that Freund has found his voice again after a period away from the limelight.

Review: German powerhouse label Ostgut Ton turns 16 with another of its big and mighty compilations. Ostgut Ton Funfzehn Plus 1 spans 20 tracks and features a number of top draw collabs from artists who work closely with the label. Some come together for the first time such as Martyn and Duval Timothy, or Len Faki and Honey Dijon, and all were due for release last year originally. They say "the music focuses on the interwoven nature of the label and the club in its multitude of different spaces and musical facets." We say, get it bought.
