Plant43 - Storm Control EP (Plant43004)

Review By: Roger Versey - For Timeline Music .. Emile Facey aka Plant43 returns on his promising new label imprint of the same name with a strong tale of 3 in his latest Storm Control EP… Emile Facey holds much respect as a true sound professor in modern electro with ambient and atmospheric textures. His music can do damage in the club scene while often keeping musical focus on natural life and scientific themes when behind the machines as Plant43; the result has led to numerous projects and a

John Shima - Paris EP (Distrikt Paris)

Review By: Matt Sever - Forthcoming on Distrikt Paris, John Shima brings us his Paris EP, four tracks of techno and electro. I can’t better the description of his music that is on his Soundcloud - John Shima makes deep emotional futuristic techno, with an old skool spacey detroit groove. He uses analogue gear and modular synths; jams live and creates his tracks from there. He has a consistently high-quality back catalogue with 25 releases listed. He also creates music under the alias Isomorphic

Andy Green in conversation with Jamie Bargeman (Exalt Records Interview)

There are cynics that believe the best days of techno music and culture happened at least 2 decades ago and stay bonded to the nostalgia, good times and inventive sounds of the early to mid-90s. Few would disagree this was, and remains, the zenith of techno music but for those soldiers still with an appetite for seeking and collecting records; I strongly believe deep techno music is in fine health and in the midst of a renaissance. Deep techno is still being lovingly nurtured by passionate prod

Silver Ash, Tm Shuffle & Monoder: Sunday Dubs (Vuo Records)

Dub techno done properly. Three tracks of the good stuff, each with its own take on the sound. The label and artists are new to me but like me, they know their dub grooves and how to orchestrate the aesthetic exactly right.. Silver Ash provides the first cut ‘Sycamore’ that draws you in with its groove and depth of sound. We lose the beat for a breakdown and some effects that just build the energy only for things to return with some power. Nine minutes of modulating dub funk. There are two mo
