Artefakt :: Kinship (Delsin)

Artefakt’s output is all so exceptionally well balanced that it’s just as capable of driving the headphones listener into a spinning state of hypnosis as it is at filling and driving the dance floor. Since 2014, Dutch producers Nick Lapien and Robin Koek have been released a handful of EP’s as Artefakt on the Delsin, […]

Igloo Magazine :: Best of 2016

While other sites might fight to get 1000s down to 50 or 20, at Igloo HQ we’ve refused to don the hair shirt of reducing respective contributor lists to a consensual singularity, in favour of doing justice to diversity via lists that range far and wide, and a congruent preference for letting their multiplicity simply […]

Last emission of 2016 in a series from Techno’s Twilight Zone of EPs/12″s and LPs with notes in the margins. Porter Ricks’ quasi-mythical status may have grown in the 17 years since their last Symbiotics (Mille Plateaux, 1999), but latest EP, Shadow Boat, shows the myth is merited. FACT mag tags the title track ‘the year’s most labyrinthine, […]

Techno’s Outer Limits :: October 2016

Techno’s Outer Limits :: July 2016

Latest emission from Techno’s Twilight Zone of EPs, 12″s & LPs with notes in the margins.  First Italy, where Dino Sabatini has launched the Outis Opera sub-series with a first album since Shaman’s Paths (‘view here), from which Omonimo notably departs; as much on a downtempo and trip-hop tip as on an Italian deep techno template of the type co-designed inter alii with […]

B12 :: Orbiting Souls (Delsin)

Orbiting Souls vividly recalls that mid-nineties period when B12 were in their element whilst also sounding classically timeless, perhaps even more so than some of their earlier work. There’s no denying the pivotal role Mike Golding and Steve Rutter’s B12 label and moniker played in the development of the UK’s early electronica, techno and IDM […]

Techno’s Outer Limits :: February 2016

Latest in a series of emissions from Techno’s Twilight Zone of EPs/12″s and LPs with notes in the margins. SNTS alive! It’s that masked man frightening the children and horses with a ‘darker and non-human side,’ asking: “Who hasn’t ever felt scared of the journey of their own thoughts? That rustling of the leaves around you…” This […]

Delsin / Beltran present French Through the Blinds

Through the Blinds sees French break cover to deliver a set of evocative ambient, experimental and downtempo electronica tracks with droning textures, soft-focus samples and treated piano motifs. Detroit producer Blair French‘s Through the Blinds comes out on Delsin on January 25th, in conjunction with Dado Records—an enterprise launched by John Beltran, who brought French on board as an artist and […]

Delsin delivers B12’s Orbiting Souls

Behind the title, Orbiting Souls, is the artist (Rutter alone here) reflecting on a friend’s demise, projecting a sense of surroundedness by souls departed. B12. A name resonating with myths of the recent past. Along with the likes of The Black Dog, Baby Ford, and other lesser lights (e.g. LA Synthesis, lately spotted here), B12 is redolent of a strain of […]

A Method to the Madness :: Marmo Music, with Modus Live Set

At needle drop be sure to leave a trail of breadcrumbs to your turntables; there’s a decent chance you’re not going to know where you end up. I love an ole surprise. Christmas. Birthdays. In restaurants I like the waiter to pick for me, though I’m aware that it might be misconstrued as cheek. The […]

Vril :: Portal (Delsin)

An absolute must not just for fans of techno but for electronic music enthusiasts of any pedigree. Almost nothing is publicly known about the techno producer styling himself as Vril, whose second full length album Portal is Delsin’s inaugural release of 2015. There are a few scattered and blurry photos, but no name, no origin […]

Aroy Dee :: Sketches (M>O>S Recordings)

Sketches is an album possessed of a refinement, restraint and nuance rarely found these days, and contains some of the finest and most evocative music about cities released in a good long while. Where has Sketches been all my life, and why has it been eleven years between the release of Aroy Dee’s debut EP […]

Yagya :: Sleepygirls (Delsin)

A record that works exceptionally well as soothing background music, Sleepygirls is a propulsive, repetitive work characterized by the occasional burst of jazz and Japanese vocals. Having a signature sound and a loyal following can often leave an artist in something of a quandary: keep plugging away in a similar vein to satisfy an existing […]

Conforce :: Kinetic Image (Delsin)

Between conceptual techno and pared-back hypgnosis, this year’s model is more nuanced, with less of the warm velvety and more of the cold clinical In the last few years, Dutchman Boris Bunnik has been among more interesting (and prolific) of techno-auteurs. As Conforce, he embeds deep blue mood-scapes and off-world atmospheres in propulsive pieces of […]

Dynarec :: Exomove EP (Solar One Music)

 Raw and unrelenting, DynArec does Solar One proud with four cuts of cruel and isolated Electro. An artist, easily assumed lost, has been reclaimed. DynArec (aka Chris Kalera) is a curious figure in Electro. The Frenchman had some five years of intense productivity with releases on labels like Delsin, Nature and Puzzlebox as well as […]

Versalife :: Vantage Point (Clone West Coast Series)

Chilly atmo twiddle, electro squiggle and rhythmic shtick abound in an machine-mean pristine update of a hark-back to the sound of Drexciya. Multi-monikered Boris Bunnik is back, here as Versalife, his more electro-techno ID. He follows Night Time Activities, a series of 12”s on Clone West Coast Series with Vantage Point, a vaguely dystopian LP […]

Claro Intelecto :: Reform Club (Delsin)

It becomes clear that the “reform” in Reform Club points not only toward tighter, slicker production but also to the combination of tech house and dub oriented beats that has evolved so much since his 2008 release Metanarrative. There are multi-insturmentalists in the more physical world of music but in the world of electronic music […]

Optic Nerve :: 3 Dimensional (Diametric.)

The tracks are club friendly, but this is more a piece of machine reflection than bass and beat. Dark, broody and emotional in one stroke; isolated, calm and cerebral in another. [Order page] Following the Mind Over MIDI album, Diametric. return to vinyl with Optic Nerve aka Keith Tucker. The name Keith Tucker is synonymous […]

Vince Watson :: The eMotion Sequence (Delsin, CD/LP)

(01.30.07) It’s been a long time since the Dutch champions of new techno Delsin released a full length solo album. $tinkworx Ain’t ‘Chit History was released back in 2004 and the only full length release from the label since then is the critically acclaimed though ultimately uninspiring Planet Delsin – Interstellar Sounds of Stardust compilation.

Over the past year Dynarec has released two 12″ EPs – R-Cam and The Lost Souls – both through Delsin.

While the vinyl version of the album is cut for maximum dancefloor impact, the […]

Aardvarck :: Find the Cow (Delsin)

How does one begin to describe an album that is a totally fresh and new experience? Aardvarck’s new long player Find The Cow released through the majestic Delsin label is just such an album. Don’t be put off by the bizarre title, or the fact that Find The Cow contains an astonishing 23 tracks. Quantity […]
