    Few know that Prishtina has one of the dopest techno labels from the region — TMM Recordings which was found in 2006 and up to this day constantly pushes sonic boundaries by growing with its sound and artists. The Kosovar staples of techno Vegim alongside his partner Flekitza are debuting with their first 12” vinyl release, perhaps the first coming from Kosovo, with a hypnotic groove EP entitled “Shifting Operations”.

  • Jonas Kopp – Omega Man

    reviews techno

    14 March 2022

    Jonas Kopp is Argentinian born and Spanish based producer and DJ of techno, first debuting on Tresor and further finding his work on other acclaimed labels such as Semantica and Axis. His appearance on Falling Apart surprised me positively – as the Frankfurt based vinyl label has some of the best hard techno artists from the new wave of producers. And Jonas’s work has been hypnotic and dubby from the start, mashed with strong accented drum lines which separated him from the hypnotic herd, but Falling Apart?

  • Overshift – Of Light and Shade

    reviews techno

    26 October 2021

    “Techno”. Say the word and most people’s thoughts turn to visions of light sticks, Ecstasy, and dumb costumes. Having been to countless raves myself, I get it. However, since the birth of rave so many years ago, the “techno” umbrella has spread to cover a host of different sounds. For example, “minimal techno”, where today’s pick kicks things off.

    Rhythmic and repetitive (in a good way), this EP practices some heavy 80s and 90s industrial worship.

    4 September 2021

    Frankfurt based DJ Disrespect drops a four-track EP entitled Jamz from the Attic for Italian label Scum Collective. One might ask himself what the heck can you actually write about straightforward techno? It isn’t innovative, it’s straightforward and it just bangs, right? Right… Not at all actually. Especially when it comes to DJ Disrespect, things were never so simple to start with.

  • SÆDEM – Portae Inferni

    20 September 2020

    How much bang would you like? Yes.

    Since the beginning of quarantine artists have been releasing more music then before to at least try to stay afloat and continue with their love. And it feels like more than ever before that many releases get lost in the algorithm. This had almost happened with the latest SÆDEM release. Luckily, if one searches for current bangers themselves, rather than letting machines choose what you might like, you will be able to trace down gems like this one.

    16 September 2020

    It is not a new normal. Everything is a new NOW. Céili Collective was recommended to me in my Bandcamp feed and the description “Various artist focused label driving out of London” caught my attention right away. When I then saw that they released a compilation featuring some artists I really like, I bought it on cassette without hesitation and listening.
