Segv & Appian – Janky (SLYFOX 002)

After their first split release on Sly Fox two years ago, Segv and Appian are back together again for round two and in both cases the approach to deep, crafty techno demands attention from the off. Segv’s “Janky” has a sharp drum section buffed with plenty of kinks in the otherwise steadfast groove, while a slick dub chord pulses through the core of the track.

Appian has a lighter, skipping flavour at work on “Re:Shell”, with a punchy bassline anchoring the track while swishing chords try to offset the swung funk of the beat. In both instances there is a distinctive, addictive quality that should get these two emerging producers plenty of air time.

Zzzzra – L’entraide EP

Truth or Consequences first release is coming from master of techno Zzzzra.

Finest deep and dubby stuff for a special 6 tracks EP, a climax of sounds and harmonics that carries the listener to a higher emotional state.

On the flip, Francesco Belfiore delivers the mirror of his hypnotic and straight techno soul, gifting us a trippy mix of “La Ritournelle Satanique”.

Duckem – Matter EP [Cut Records]

In what will be Cut’s last (but not least) dub-techno styled EP on Cut for a while, Duckem brings us some utterly divine dub moods.

Dusty chords, tight percussion and beautifully deep sounds, this four-track is guaranteed to satiate purveyors of fine dub-techno and bass music.

Bucking the trend of your usual 4-4 style dub-techno, Duckem takes us a bit deeper and further into the sound. Pushing percussive boundaries, and working layers upon layers.

Throwin Shapes – Pembroke Session 2×12″

Originally from Ireland, now living in Toronto, producer and DJ, Neil Mooney, aka Throwin Shapes, developed his wide-ranging sound by immersing himself in Toronto’s diverse underground music scene for the last 10 years. Having deejayed at some of the city’s most forward-thinking music events, Mooney has now focused his attention on production. Over the eight songs on his debut album, with newly-started, vinyl-only label Religio, Throwin Shapes shows the full and eclectic range of his musical influences, from dub to deep house and acid to techno. Expansive yet intimate, banging while still soulful, percussive and melodic, Pembroke Session LP is music for the late night.
