To understand where “The Attic” came from, we have to go back to one of my oldest memories: watching Der Phantastische Film on German tv. The movies that left the deepest marks on me were the ones that zoomed in on the possible bad sides of technology and predicted the […]
The hyper-chromatic music of Matt Cutler marks him out as a true impressionist, as Lone, he drizzles brightly coloured melody through his tracks with all the reflexive skill of a master painter daubing inks and pigment across paper. On Cutlers fifth Lone album, Reality Testing, released on R&S, he sends […]
Buttechno explores minimal techno via a psychedelic filter of his own design. Gently modulating, dubwise, fun-spirited and most of all, funky bangers from deep inside MCK.
Four-track EP from veteran Hamburg producer Christoph De Babalon. CDB has tirelessly explored the intersections of breakcore, illbient, and drum and bass. “Shakes and Shivers” fixates itself on deceptively playful grooves with eerie, night bus-to-nowhere atmospherics whilst opening cut “Harakiri” manages to distort familiar jungle tropes into something even die […]
Zauberberg — Wolfgang Voigt’s most fundamental (and foreboding) release under his alias GAS and perhaps of all in his untold discography — finally stands alone once again and is released in the way its original splendor.

Includes poster. Silent Servant returns with Shadows of Death and Desire. Now-legendary producer, DJ, and art director Juan Mendez arguably reset techno at least twice. Once with his surreal and Europe-by-way-of-LA ’80s apocalypse culture aesthetics for Sandwell District, and again as Silent Servant capturing the youth-driven mutation of crossover electronics and dark parties churning in the American underground, […]
2018 reissue, originally released 1998. Juan Atkins’s Infinitiproject combines raw tactility and puristic elegance on Skynet, where slinking grooves mask chaotic frequencies and roughly-hewn structure. Alongside fellow Detroit legend Terrence Dixon, who appears on several tracks, Atkins exposes the life and emotion in machines, outputting a biomorphic atmosphere of industrial soul. The ongoing importance […]
