Recondite - DRGN2

Best techno discovery for some time, solid and dark, which builds up firmly before going into a wobbly emotional twist and picking up the pace to finish.  Firmer than an anti-celebrity bum and won't break the internet.

Recondite is a star of the future.

The Cheapers - Memories

Am I imagining that The Cheapers used to make gash fidget-house?  Probably.  I could be making that up.

This is one of those luxurious Tale-Of-Us set-end kind of dreamy deep trance efforts, really well-produced and a solid 8 minutes long.

Mark Farina - Dream Machine (Brett's No Fear Mix)

Slightly mental acid-soaked house groover.  I have no idea who Brett is and it is a long time since a Mark Farina track has tingled my tastebuds - this is essential for dancefloors

Luciano - Metodisma

I've heard that Luciano is apparently back on form as a DJ. This track is from 2009, when he last was on form as both a DJ and producer - imagine a slightly more aggressive Villalobos beat with added low-volume screams and you should get the picture.

Gary Beck - Get Together

Party techno about a coffee cup.  Progressively uplifting with claps-a-plenty and a smashing breakdown.  Gary Beck always produces a track every year that could headline a Sven set.

tINI - That's Right

tINI has been a favourite of mine for a few years now.

A warm, chuggy underground glow with vocal snippets and a totally un-EDM build-up to go back to the chug.  Very tasty.  Very tINI.

Renegade Soundwave - Phantom

Oh how wonderful does this sound?  A slightly broken beat house track that possibly helped pave the way for breakbeat, but with enough of a beat, kickdrum and percussion to place it firmly in the house camp.  From 1989.

DeepChord - DC14 [B1 Remastered]

I am really getting into this spacious dub techno exploration, it really could be my new thing.

I don't really know much about them - I know they are from America and have lots of tracks with very similar names.

Patrick Specke - Bitchual Linestepper

What is a bitchual linestepper?  A random girl that steals all your coke at the after-party?  The track is a nice underground house track, a touch floaty and dubby.

Tuccillo - Take My Joy

Tuccillo has been slowly growing into my conscious and fully explodes into it with this groovy house track with intermittent powerful drumming.
