Jesper Dahlback - Thermal Voltage - H-PRODUCTIONS [HPX52]

H Productions follow up outstanding recent singles from Alexi Delano and The Advent & Industrialyzer with a new EP from Swedish production don Jesper Dahlback.

For his latest musical outing Dahlback offers up 4 tracks of spacious, quality techno, kicking off with "Thermal Voltage", a stripped and intense cut with a big warehouse feel to it. Low end bass, relentless percussion and heavily reverbed stabs come together to create a sparse and edgy atmosphere on this excellent opener.

Next up we have "Transfer Function" which continues in a similarly stripped back vein, providing a superb deep and menacing vibe through a fusion of bass, discordant pads and FX, great stuff.

Penultimate track "Diode Ladder" takes an old school line with filtered percussion and a DX style bassline to create a hypnotic piece of techno that is sure to get any dancefloor stuck in the groove.

Finally we have "Transistor Buffer", a brooding and rolling slab of minimal techno (in the original sense) that builds into a powerful groove, providing a perfect final piece to the package.

Cari Lekebusch - Third Eye Vision - Mote Evolver (MOTE023)

Luke Slaters Mote-Evolver has been busy keeping the techno scene on its toes with a string of releases that have proven the credentials of the label and challenged the status quo.

High profile releases such as Planetary Assault Systems Deep Heet Vol. 2 and the Jerome Sydenham vs Function, James Ruskin and P.A.S. remixes of GT have set the benchmark for a release schedule that has seamlessly encompassed music from Slater and his peers as well as the best of new school producers like Samuli Kemppi, Lucy and Shifted who are evolving the techno sound for the next generation.

One such producer who could be attributed to either of these categories is Cari Lekebusch. Often credited with serving as inspiration to a generation of electronic music producers, the founder of H-Productions has earned a reputation as a diverse and evolutionary force within techno thanks to a steady stream of quality productions and so Mote-Evolver welcomes Cari back to the label for his second release with open arms.

Third Eye Vision, inspired by ideas of cerebral exploration, is one for the heads. Built around a building groove emitting a constant melodic hum; the effect is a disorientating hypnosis enhanced by psychedelic chimes and detuned reverbs.

Ana Kata, with its playful, off-centre styling, continues the EPs theme of other worldliness. Warm and enticing yet stark and challenging at times, the fusion of contrasting elements from both sides of the palette creates an alluring harmony.

Available as a bonus track on the digital release, Octave Mundi closes out the EP with an epic flourish. Part cinematic soundscape, part muscular rhythm track, the sonic alchemy at work creates a moment for the late hours; delivering in equal measures for the head and for the feet.
