Problems - Homeboy Sandman - Stones Throw Records

"I'm surrounded by hipsters / What does that say about me? / Hipsters love independent movies / Shit, I love independent movies / Actually, I just like independent movies / So I think I'm cool there" — amusing, broken-up and horizontal slice of first-world anxiety from HS and Stones Throw. New album 'Hallways' due soon. Don't sleep. 

Depth Over Distance EP - Conforce - Delsin

Neither Boris Bunnik nor Delsin are going to win any prizes for originality with ‘Distance’, but it nonetheless does an impressive line in deep techno. ‘Plateau’ is a sublime, chiming groove, full of seductive pads and spiky, metallic percussion and ‘Closer’ is all atmospheric, acid-tinged sweeps. However, the title track impresses most; teeming with mysterious synth lines and led by rigid claps and drums, it’s reminiscent of Carl Craig at his most eerie. It may be derivative, but it's executed exquisitely. 

 
Physical EP - She’s Drunk - Liminal Sounds

I hate to be the guy that says it, but shit, it was pretty inevitable — considering the close quarters they share — that elements of grime and jungle would mix. It’s been permeating through the slow/fast Metalheadz indebted productions of people like Om Unit, Hyroglifics and Sam Binga, but Berlin’s She’s Drunk makes it feel more like the dulled bass pulses and compressed handclaps are twice as important as the classic drum breaks layered on top on ‘Talk To Them’.

Origins - Pedestrian & Jasperdrum - 2nd Drop Records

Continuing where their 'Kalakuta/Ndizi' release from last year stopped, the duo dig deeper into the Afrocentric palette, mutating further into off-kilter techno riddims. On the flip, Alix Perez destroys the remix of 'Kalakuta' with a dub 'n’ bass rework.
