Review: While Carl Craig was in Buenos Aries last year, he ended up in the studio with Argentine outfit Klauss, a combo renowned for their live electronic performances. Here, we finally get a chance to hear the results, which pit the experienced Detroiter's love of loopy, dancefloor-focused hypnotism against the band's modular electronics, moody industrial and new wave influences. A-side "Momentum" sets the tone, with the track subtly building over 10 mesmerizing minutes via foreboding treated guitars, psychedelic acid lines and paranoia-inducing modular electronics. Flip for the similarly epic "Repeat After Me", an arguably more widescreen affair that makes even more of Klauss' otherworldly guitar motifs and crackling, out-of-this-world synthesizer motifs. What it lacks in dancefloor grunt, it more than makes up for in atmosphere.

Review: As the title suggests, Terrence's Parker's first album since 2014 was inspired by the two constants in the experienced producer's life: his Christian faith, and the ongoing struggles of Detroit. Musically, it's an unashamedly retro-futurist affair, with Parker largely delivering a range of feel good tunes that draw heavily on techno, gospel, New Jersey garage and Chicago house. Highlights are plentiful, from the warm sci-fi ambience of "The Sabbath" and rich, late '80s soulfulness of "Transition", to the bubbly techno shuffle of "Let's Go" and the rush-inducing piano house stomp that is "Don't Waste Another Minute". "Latter Rain", which is served up in two distinctive versions - the beat-less, string-drenched soul of the "Hearing The Rain Mix" and the classic US garage skip of the "After The Storm Mix" - is also superb.
