This time, it came from the studio of one of the greats of Innervisions, Toto Chiavetta, who would finally release the track on Borders of Light. After a summer of waiting and almost despair, the day arrived.
Since Spaniard Coyu abandoned tech-house rhythms to accelerate the pitch and move into more forceful genres, his facet as a producer had been somewhat slowed down. Or so it seemed… It was back from the summer and Coyu hit the scene with a very long track LP in which he collaborates with people like Moby or The Horrorist. With it, a guy with more than 4 decades of experience as the Danish Kenneth Bager is again in the spotlight.
It was his time. This could be defined in one sentence — something that should never be done — Volume Massimo , the new album by Italian Alessandro Cortini. This is one of the best ambient works of the year and possibly of the whole decade. Solomun was one of the first to squeeze out those purring tones, which already indicated that Diynamic was possibly going to be the label to release the track. It was, although it took a bit longer than expected. The song belongs to the EP Cabora, which is the debut of the Ukrainian Angelov in Diynamic after Solomun has been using his music for several years now.
The original track, recorded at bpm, fits perfectly with the rebellious thinking of Lehar, Musumeci and Olderic, the founders of the Multinotes label. The release offers a more relaxed version of the song, but we keep the bass punch of this Club Mix. Any of her most recent DJ sets have ended up with this half indie, half disco flavour.

Patrick Topping 's may just be the best year for him yet thanks to not only the launch of his own imprint but especially, the 2nd release on his label, Turbo Time. The title track was a massive hit at the tail end of the Summer and in addition, this particular tune, "Galaxy," is a total dance-floor weapon!
The arpeggiated, syncopated synth on top of the straight kick is as fierce as they come. His wizardry with the arpeggiation is unmatched in and for that reason, it stands up as one of the year's best.
A very fitting end to the best of house chart would be Andhim 's "Last Song.

On this EP, Anunaku goes a step further, dripping drum over drum until rhythms that at first feel competitive begin to interweave. To varying degrees, on all three tracks, the frame drum is the engine, as toms and snares fight for time in the mix. Sam Barker is wary of taking the easy route in getting people to move their bodies.
For his debut album, Utility , Barker dug into his archives to see which of his old sketches sounded good when he stripped them back to the studs. The result is mysterious, weightless. As a whole, Utility is an expression of what techno can be when the most obvious percussive elements go away.
Home is an ambiguous concept for Dan Snaith: In his nearly two decades of music-making, the producer has dramatically reinvented himself on an album-by-album basis, veering from glitchy electronica to blown-out shoegaze to kaleidoscopic pop to subaquatic house without ever retracing his steps. But where some might collapse into pessimism or worse, McFerren finds a kind of grace in the chaos, tempering his quirks into a sound both potent and poignant.
But his grooves are leaner and his synths brighter; even at its busiest, his music feels fundamentally at peace. Taking the thundering triplet rhythms of tribal guarachero as her starting point, she wraps textures of wood and leather in the kinds of buzz and throb that the Finnish noiseniks Pan Sonic used to mete out, twisting the knobs on her distortion unit until the whole thing is suffused in the distinctly bitter whiff of an electrical fire.
The titular vocal sample, chopped into oblivion, is a suitable mantra: Nate returned to footwork while recovering from an injury that left him temporarily paralyzed from the waist down, a particularly cruel irony in a scene defined by movement.
His music, which blends Latin strains and house beats, conveys passion to almost strangely deep levels. He does it by layering inventive rhythms with plenty of long tones, something simultaneously for the head and the heart. Exael turned up in various configurations in , releasing a lovely ambient double A-side as Naemi and joining Huerco S.
British electronic producer Sam Shepherd has always exerted remarkable control over his meticulous musical output as Floating Points: With his favored instrument, the Buchla modular synthesizer, he can contour sound waves and alter circuitry to suit his needs. But Shepherd, like the rest of us, has comparatively little control over his input, and the chaos of the past three years—Brexit, Trump—shook something loose inside him.
Out came Crush, a record that vibrates with sadness and anger, buoyed by squelching melodies that flutter and pop. Thank goodness that sample cleared. This year, the label returned with three complementary interpretations of a style that often sounds like a merengue cassette with the fast-forward button glued down. Duke is part mad scientist, part punk rocker: His beats gallop at tempos upwards of BPM, with screamed vocals pushing everything even more dangerously to the breaking point.
His tracks are just as fast as those of his acolytes, but he likes to let his loops run with minimal interference. The effect is gravity-defying. Orbison has tightened his game, his drumwork impressively tidy while the synths soar.
