JEL044 – Umek “Heat Mode EP” Jericho – TECHNO
Jel Ford's Jericho imprint continues its resurgence with a 2 track killer from techno heavyweight, Umek. This will now be Umek's 4th release for this legendary label and it doesn't disappoint. He has been extremely busy releasing material over the last 12 months with superb releases on labels such as Rekluse, Tronic, Circle Music, Renaissance, Audoimatique and Hell Yeah. The 2 tracks here feature some of the best production we've heard in a long time with Heat Mode on the A side being a turbo charged killer with a deadly vocal refrain, precise drums and monster breaks. On the flipside Suitably Devastating is in a similar vein with its punchy drums, driving bass and clever edits. A killer release from an artist on fire!

SPEC0905 – Nihad Tule “Way Of The Lonely Ones” Spectrum (UK) – TECHNO
Nihad Tule has had a busy few months working on new material for Adam Beyer's iconic Drumcode imprint. Luckily he found sometime to deliver Spectrum this masterpiece of dubbed out, deep, melodic techno. Its a beautiful driving track with swirling and rising synth-lines that are ideal for the early morning vibe, but still has enough weight, in the massive bassline and drums to keep the dance floor very happy indeed. Remix duties come courtesy of Jerome Sydenham, another producer making some serious waves at the moment and also awaiting an imminent release on Drumcode. Sydenham, takes key parts of the original and takes us on a tripped out, epic 9 minute journey, with all the subtle hints of Detroit's gold age shining through to fantastic effect. All in all, it's a dynamite release from a new label which has quickly gained masses of respect from DJs, press and punters alike. Go buy it.
