Review: Code sees Patrick Graser issue his debut album as Answer Code Request with the twelve track set comfortably ranking among the best long players issued on Ostgut Ton in recent times. Though Graser has been releasing records under his given name since 2008, it's his work as Answer Code Request that has seen the German truly find his sound. First appearing under the moniker in 2011 with the self-released Subway Into EP, Graser has gone on to release with MDR and Ostgut Ton with the Breath EP issued on the latter earlier this year a fine taste for what to expect from Code. ACR's weighty breakbeat driven techno is very much in evidence here, at times it feels like how Hessle lad Joe might sound if he grew up in the outskirts of Berlin ("Field Depth" in particular). At other times Graser's suggestion that Code is influenced by the 90s sounds of UK bastions such as Warp feel very much true and the more you listen the more you feel he's successfully managed to deliver a cohesive and continually compelling techno album.

  1. Neume (7:00)
  2. Meta (7:09)
  3. Vis (4:53)
Review: "Neume", the title track from Answer Code Request's first Ostgut Ton outing for two years, sounds like a dancefloor warning of dark times ahead. Percussively intricate but rhythmically hypnotic, much of its' allure stems from the producer's use of seriously foreboding chords and creepy string sweeps. "Meta" is a little more positive in outlook, with dreamier chords and pads combining well with a beat pattern that sits somewhere between Tectonic techno and West London broken beat. Finally, he expertly combined pitched-up hip-hop beats, heavy analogue bass and sunset-friendly pads on the deliciously hazy closer, "Vis".

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.

  1. Barker & Baumecker - "Love Is A Battlefield" (10:06)
  2. Atom TM - "Stromlinien" (5:51)
  3. Anthony Parasole - "Heartbeat" (5:19)
Review: The Ostgut Ton Zehn 12" series continues apace and lands on edition Sechs, which packs a triple trouble punch from Messrs Barker & Baumecker, Atom TM and Anthony MF Parasole! Responsible for one of our favourite Ostgut artist albums, Sam Barker and Andy Baumecker kick things off with their first original production in some time and the brittle, unpredictable hardcore manifestation "Love Is A Battlefield" has us hoping the pair will return with something more substantial soon. Ten minutes of ethereal techno at it's finest! On the flip, Atom TM takes it down a stripped back and dubby route with "Stromlinien" whilst The Corner don Parasole lays waste to the dancefloor with the reverberant elasticity of "Heartbeat".

Review: It's always a good day for techno when new Steve 'master of the loop' Bicknell material arises, just like it's done here on the first sampler for Function's Berghain 07 mix. "Odyssey #1" is a distorted gyration through fizzy atmospheres and chocked bleeps, while Post Scriptum's rolling "Human Timescales" is a cross between the Hauntologists sound and the beats heard on Tobias' Leaning Over Backwards album, also released on Ostgut Ton. There's some transatlantic vibes on LB Dub Corp's "So Much", while the emerging Blue Hour sees his zapping drum track keep the sustain on his synth locked for the entirety of the B2.

Review: Marcel Dettmann drops one of the most anticipated albums of 2010, with his eponymous debut on Ostgut Ton. And it's everything you'd hope for (and expect) from a Berghain resident: dark, cavernous, atmospheric - utterly brilliant. The highlights are numerous, from the thunderous, atmospheric electrical storm that is "Argon" to the Basic Channel-esque hiss and crackle of "Drawing" and the looped percussion on "Reticie" that sounds like Dettmann has been dragging a bag of marbles around one of the unused rooms at Berghain. Techno, welcome to 2010.

Review: Acht! Ostgut's Zehn 12" sampler draws ever closer to the end of its campaign and its been a pleasure to see some of these records arrive at Juno HQ replete with distinctive sleeve art. The German speakers among you will know this is the eighth edition and brandishes productions from Din, Fiedel and Tobias. For the uninitiated, DIN is in fact Marcel Fengler and Efdemin with "Mono" a fine introduction to this fledgling creative partnership - hopefully more is coming on the mighty Ostgut Ton! "Probe-806" is a great slab of Fiedelness, pulling for elements of funk, electro, acid and even boogie in the German's inimitable muscular style whilst Tobias heads off in a more minimalist direction on "Like A Drug".

Review: Ostgut Ton reach the midway, or Funf, point of their programme of 12" issues from last year's mammoth Zehn boxset which draws for the contributions from DVS1, Answer Code Request and the Dutch connection Doms & Deykers. DVS1 is up first with "Ecks", a blinding little DJ tool rife with skittering drums and trademark touches of psychedelia, whilst Answer Code Request's "Zeitspielraum" has a touch of the Underworld classic "Rez" to it. Plenty of broken drums too, naturally! Martyn and Steffi have the keys to the B-side and they use the space to lay down their own breakbeat house epic "Whirling" which bodes well for the mooted Doms & Deykers album that is supposed to be out this year.

  2. Trace To Nowhere (5:51)
  3. Devil May Care (5:38)
  4. Immersion (6:40)
Review: In a DJ and production career approaching two decades, Terence Fixmer's music has appeared on some real bastions of European techno - International Deejay Gigolo, Speedy J's Electric Deluxe, Prologue, CLR and Jealous God being just five. Last year saw Ostgut Ton added to that list, with the label giving the Belgian's iconic 2003 production "Aktion Mekanik Theme" a pleasantly-surprising reissue augmented by some high profile remixes (Nodge, Dettmann, Kobosil). Beneath The Skin adds further steel to that relationship and is a fine Ostgut debut for Fixmer, with the title track a devious muscle rippler of a modern EBM/techno hybrid DJ tool. Wait for those sirens to come in! "Trace To Nowhere" pairs up breathing vocals with alien-like acid squeaks over a stripped back techno patter whilst "Devil May Care" takes the lysergy into more foreboding territory. The tension eases as "Immersion" closes out the 12" on a more ambient techno tip.

  3. As Above, So Below (5:25)
Review: Nick Hoppner and Sunao Gonno are old pals, having first met in Tokyo way back in 2008. Here they join forces for a one-off collaborative EP on Hoppner's regular home, Ostgut Ton. Interestingly, all of the featured tracks are closer to Gonno's tactile, Balearic-tinged club sound than Hoppner's drowsy European deep house. "Fantastic Planet", in particular, is superb, with the duo layering undulating synthesizer lines and blissful melodies atop a bouncy, Detroit/Chicago fusion house groove. Elsewhere, "As Above, So Below" fuses long-drawn out organ chords and sustained notes with bubbling drum machine beats, while "Spocking Fivers" is a deep, jazzy and rubbery excursion into sparkling Balearic deep house.

Review: Well, it wouldn't be a complete season without something from Berlin's Nick Hoppner, and luckily it's come through his city's limitless Ostgut Ton imprint. However, this is a total refresh from the producer, a summer look, if you will! Unlike the tech-minded house we've come to associate him to, the Work LP is a much more investigative piece of music, reaching far beyond the confines of the dance space. Moreover, it's feels like a single piece of music rather than a collection of tunes passed off as an album. There are, of course, plenty of usable tools in here, but the tracks sound complete and accomplished on their own, making this a winner throughout. House and electronica get mashed up good and proper, all while retaining Hoppner's trademark Berlin style. BIG.

Review: The last time we heard from Nick Hoppner, he was collaborating with Japanese veteran Gonno. Here he returns to Ostgut Ton with his first solo EP since the release of the Folk album in 2015. He begins with A-side "Box Drop", a typically Berlin-style techno shuffler full of dubbed-out riffs, relentless cymbal hits and subtle melodic variations. It's muscular and full-throttle, but with enough wavy elements to work at home as well as in the club. On the flip you'll find the Motor City positivity of "Still" - all life-affirming melody lines, colourful chords and gentle acid lines - and the grandiose, soundscape techno thrills of the equally melodious "Out of Sight".

Review:  Part nine of ten in Ostgut Ton's tenth various artists compilation and they're pulling out the big guns now to celebrate proceedings with a big bang. Star resident Ben Klock has taken quite a long hiatus from production but he's still got it, as shown on the tunnelling and cyclical cut "Sirens". Fellow resident and Detroit ex-pat Ryan Elliott serves up the soulful and emotive "Smith Lake" which is brilliant and reminds us of Exos or "Dead Eye" era Baby Ford. Finally resident party animal Len Faki surprises many with the ambient mix of his undisputed anthem "Rainbow Delta" and it is absolutely sublime; you can just drift away to this one, you'll see!

Review: Berghain young gun Max Kobosil gives us his debut album. We Grow They Decline is surprisingly more restrained than you'd expect from Kobosil given his reputation as a DJ and of course those pretty fierce EPs he released previously on MDR and Unterton. Most tracks on here are slower, deeper and reflective takes on the techno sound and show a sense of maturity in this emerging talent's studio prowess. Highlights include the sombre and vertigo inducing slow-groove of "Reflection", the avant garde tribalism of "The Exploring Mountain" and the throbbing EBM crossover of "The Living Ritual".

Here, he finally gets a chance to fully detail his widescreen approach to techno on a much-anticipated debut album. While rooted in the kind of clandestine, early morning fare that always goes down a storm in Berlin, the eleven tracks that make up We Grow, You Decline are peppered with a veritable smorgasbord of intriguing influences, from the dark, panicky ambience of "Eihwaz" and grandiose drone textures of "While The Stars Be Not Darkened", to the industrial/EBM pulse of "The Living Ritual", and the soundtrack jazz-goes-techno atmospherics of "To See Land".

Review: Berlin Young gun Max Kobsoil returns with more interesting techno perspectives on Ostgut Ton, his second appearance for the label since his debut LP We Grow, They Decline. No doubt influenced by his residency at the legendary Berghain, these four sonic weapons are strict and austere: overall sure to cause some destruction on the dancefloor. Beginning with the fierce industrial techno energy of "40000 L", the A side is completed by the abrasive body basher "Bei Nacht H" where its over driven kicks fight it out with nasty textures and grim atmosphere. On the flip, "Derange" is the most tunnelling and hypnotic cut on offer, that's sure to get some strobed out moments happening in that notorious warehouse space. After recent mayhem courtesy of his own RK imprint and releases on MDR, this is heavy stuff, so handle with care!

Marcel Fengler's restrained fury on "Fallin' (feat. Elif Bicer)" almost sounds like something off the soundtrack of a sci-fi film where dramatic elements face off with Bicer's angelic voice. Etapp Kyle's "Nolah" is another example of his well executed hypnotic techno with a nod to the master himself Robert Hood. Finally Steffi's "Loweborschtel" is the kind of surefire sub-aquatic electro funk and the standard in quality you'd always expect from the Dolly boss.

Individually the standard of these exclusives is remarkably high and it will be interesting to see how Elliott has slotted them all together for the free to download mix.

Review: Lecce's finest Massimiliano Pagliara now calls Berlin home, where he's a resident at local institution Panorama Bar and at Offenbach's Robert Johnson as well. Quite fitting then that in-house label Ostgut Ton takes the honour of releasing his new EP Time & Again, where his irresistible nu-disco jams take on an even stronger form yet. "If I Try To Forget I Will Miss You Even More" channels the energy of a typical Sunday night up at the infamous Berghain loft, as does the title track with its razor sharp, neon lit analogue synths soaring gloriously above the mix in classic Italo disco fashion. On the flip is the emotive, soulful and Detroit influenced "To A Faraway Place" with its euphoric elements reminiscent of Virginia's contribution for the label last year. Finally, "A Passing Day" is the moodiest offering here; the slow burning number features a gritty EBM style arpeggio and industrial percussion strikes, creating quite the suspense.

While there are some IDM and vintage electro influnces - most notably on opener "Pip", throbbing electrofunk jam "Treasure Seeking" (a hook-up with old pals Dexter and Virginia) and the picturesque closing track "Fine Friend" - for the most part Doms sticks rigidly to the kind of club-friendly fodder with which she made her name. By and large, this means vibrant, Detroit-influenced techno, with the throbbing "Bag of Crystals" and sci-fi leaning "Selfhood" standing out.

Named after a street Steffi Doms used to live on, "JBW25" is included here in original form for anyone that missed the aforementioned album and also offers first hand comparison to the remixes from Further Reductions and Answer Code Request. It's nice to see Brooklyn-based duo Katie Rose and Shawn O'Sullivan turn in their debut remix with a creeping, stripped down take on the track that bristles with the same sense of foreboding as their Cititrax LP of last year. Answer Code Request offers two versions which will appeal to the straighter techno heads out there.

Review: Berlin's lady of ladies, Steffi, returns to familiar settings with this latest album, a deep and calculating blend of technoid sonics for the mighty Ostgut Ton imprint. The DJ-producer has been known to deliver absurdly twisted sets at the Berlin institution over the years, but the majority of her work has been made up of short collaborations and comparatively more dance-centric material. World Of The Waking State feels like a change of gear, where the focus on dance has been replaced by something much more imperceptible and inward looking. From "Different Entities" to "All Living Things, the opening three tunes point to a noticeable struggle behind the production desk, a deep sense of melancholia which enables these spectacular electronic gems from having cross-cultural appeal. The flip of the first disc further experiments with the deeper end of the sound palette, which is something that can be said about this entire LP. While this might get the Ostgut hype at first, the passage of time will undoubtedly get people to see it as a classic. What an album - very hotly recommended.

Review: Ostgut Ton has been trailing Steffi Doms' third album, World of the Waking State, as a departure for both artist and label. Certainly, it's an altogether more considered, complex and musically expansive set than its' predecessors. It's rich in evocative electronic soundscapes, whose scuttling rhythms look to IDM and vintage "intelligent techno" for inspiration. The assembled musical elements - think bubbly and occasionally wonky electronics, sweeping synthesized strings, deep space chords and Motor City melodies - often tend towards the heart-aching and melodious, lending the set a genuinely poignant feel. When Doms decides to change tack and head towards the dancefloor - see the ghostly, industrial electro assault of "Mental Events", sparkling positivity of "Cease To Exist" and bustling, intergalactic title track - the results are equally as inspired.

Review:  Matthew Styles is by no means prolific - just 12 releases in 10 years - but still manages to bring a distinctive touch to each production. In this instance, Styles' first EP for Ostgut following an appearance on one of the Panorama Bar samplers, there's a rough and bleary feel to each composition. This sensibility manifests itself in different ways; the title track is a stepping, broken beat affair laced with acid, while the contemplative "Wave 6" sounds like it was created by the Mike Huckaby-loved synth. The only out and out dance floor track, "Border", is also notable thanks to its shimmering, sleek chords and rolling house beats.

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.

Review: Given his usually productive nature, it's been a long time between drinks for Tobias Freund. Eyes In The Center isn't just his third solo album, but also his first release of note since 2014. Predictably, it's at atmospheric and thrillingly hard to pigeonhole affair, with Freund doing his best to create tracks that stick two fingers up at easy categorization. Of course, there are moments of straightforward dancefloor goodness - see the fluttering electronics and hypnotic techno rhythms of "Blind Mass", "Syndrome" and late night moodiness of "Vertic" - but even these come cloaked in spooky field recordings or manipulated modular noise. In fact, many of the album's more striking moments occur when he lets his experimental instincts run wild, either on beat-less ambient excursions or unique re-imaginings of IDM.

  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.
