Claptone – Party Girl (Format:B Remix) (2017)


Charmer Remixed is the final act of Claptones debut album campaign, a collection of remixes which close the curtain on the Charmer chapter and conclude an incredible few years for the masked on. Part 2 features reworks from Format B, Raumakustik & Superlover.


Dark Sky – Kilter (2017)

Dark Sky return with two highly effective techno tracks featuring dark and roaring basslines at the center, the London duo leave no doubt that they haven’t lost any of their acclaimed production skills. “Kilter” is a rhythm-driven club anthem, featuring a sweeping bassline that nods to classic Dark Sky, while on the Bsdie, “Acacia” opens with ethereal synth pads before giving way to a onslaught of low end goodness before slowly
revealing building percussion which finally climaxes in all its thumping glory. Dark Sky’s first release since Voyages (2015) may in parts seem like quite a functional affair, but it is only a tiny glimpse at what their forthcoming album Othona has in store.

Orbital – Kinetic (2017)


More than two years since announcing their second split, in October 2014, Orbital have once again settled their differences and announced a reunion – along with a series of festival tour dates and new music.

The British dance duo, brothers Paul and Phil Hartnoll, will break their silence with three outdoor events confirmed so far for this summer. They headline Forbidden Fruit in Dublin, Standon Calling in Hertfordshire and the Bluedot festival at Jodrell Bank radio telescope near Manchester. There’s new music, too, with a new single Kinetic.

Turinn – Frank White (2017)


Debut release from a new addition to the Modern Love family featuring 10 dancefloor variants shot from the hip. RIYL Kassem Mosse, Willow, Lorenzo Senni, DJ Stingray, Move D, El-B…

Outta the shadows and into the strobe-light, Alex Lewis aka Turinn debuts on Modern Love with a highly rinsable debut double-pack of sawn-off brukbeats and anxious, nerve-riding grooves brewed in the ravines of North Manchester. Turinn emerges from a new generation of producers in the city that include longtime spar Willow, and upcoming producer Croww, soon to offer up his own debut recordings.

Crooked and rugged AF, but tempered by an acute emotive sensitivity, 18 1/2 Minute Gaps renders a bleedin’ cross-section of mongrel, hybrid style ’n pattern in a breathless, deceptively freehand fashion that comes riddled with an electric blue energy all of its own. Committing ten trax of fractious, mutant funk and sore feels, 18 1/2 minute Gaps serves to cap Turinn’s formative phase of production like a lead lid on a nuclear rave implosion; trapping original ‘ardcore ‘nuum, Detroit booty and dank post-punk elements in a perpetual flux of in-the-pocket grooves which ravenously attempt to split at the seams, alternately pushing into Muslimgauze-like buffer zones of distortion or resoundingly wide ambient dimensions, and often both at once.

On the first plate, this ambiguous dichotomy is epitomised between the rare surge of quick/slow torque in Ovum, which almost sounds like Chris Carter sparring with Burial Hex, and then in his nod to the Italian new wave with Elba, which seems to find the square root between Lorenzo Senni and some skudgy as heck Kassem Mosse grind, whereas the bittersweet soul of 1625 finds compatible links with his close peer, Workshop’s Willow as well as Japan’s Shinichi Atobe and scene enabler Move D, while Parratactico swaggers into quantum dancehall meters.

The second disc is no less deadly: the album title track runs at a nexx level Detroit momentum like DJ Stingray flipping Derrick May and Carl Craig’s Kaotic Harmonies, before ESO cuts in like a super cranky El-B wearing itchy Primark underwear, and the bone-rattling hardcore jungle of Spawn soon enough gives way to the sweetlad couplet of Petrichor and Ondine, where his elusive, distressed melodic touch really shines thru
