L.B. Dub Corp - Roller (Len Faki Interpretation)

There is a real undercurrent of energy here, with rolling bass and the occasional dark synth stab - Mr Faki remains one of my favourite techno producers.

Delgado - Keep Lifting

I really like this.  It's just a simple garage track, it almost reminds me of speed garage with it's repetitive soulful vocals and straight-forward beat.

Atom TM - Riding The Void

I'm becoming a really big fan of Atom TM and their ability to engineer industrial noises, gorgeous basslines and minimal-esque features into a very unique sound.  Beautifully industrial.

Timo Maas & James Teej - Thingzz

Gritty, moody tech-house track for establishing the darkness of winter.

Konrad Black - Sycho Te Alyn

I think there is a lot more depth to this track than comes over on my earphones - it's typically dark of Konrad, with a slightly broken beat pattern, a minimal structure and a lot of bass.

Ada - Faith (Koze's Grungerwomen Instrumental Remix)

Sometimes I can go 10, 20 hours of tune-hunting without finding anything I even vaguely like.  Today I've loved 3 tracks in a row.

This is outstanding - slightly uncomfortable, darkly warm with a variety of clicks, high pitched noises and a deep bassline to meld it together - it does sound like a Grungerwoman.  Whatever that is.

Eman & Doc Link - Not 4 U

House track with a hip-hop attitude to it, and a nice bass-driven beat.  Not on Youtube at the time of writing.

Gri - Archaeos Penn

A pensive piece of hypnotic minimal, almost slightly mournful in its beauty.

Loco Dice - Like In The Movies…Yeah I Want Sum

I've been listening to a few tracks from Loco Dice's new album and this is a real stand out - a gently rising tech-house monster with techno drums and energetic percussion.  I used to think he had perhaps lost it but if he had - then he is right back on form with this album.

No video on Youtube as it stands.

Loco Dice - Keep It Low

This is just about a big fat dirty bassline, it also has a bit of a hip-hop influence, amongst requests for people to smoke week and finishes on a mini-rant about forum bitches in a high-pitched vocodered voice.

Alex & Digby - Kudlak

Minimal track with charming calling card and hypnotic Spanish place names repeated over and over, possibly with children's voices.  And a gorgeous 14 minutes long.

I spent about an hour of one set recently trying to remember what it was called as it just kept going around in my head.
