01. NO MORE - Love, Noise & Paranoia (1979 - 2019) [Rent A Dog]

02. A Sagittariun - Return To Telepathic Heights [Running Back Incantations]
Finally it's here. The long awaited third album by A Sagittariun and probably his best release after his 2013 longplay debut "Dream Ritual" presents a thrilling collection of ten tracks which sees the well-secluded producer explore new musical territories somewhat in between classic Electro / Phonk with a certain retrofuturist twang, great crystalline synth lines mixed with sweet Intelligent Techno, highly advanced BrokenBeat / BassMusic and even echoes of Proto HipHop / B-Boy Breaks for those who know. Recommended!

03. Etch / Nico Lindsay [Sneaker Social Club]
Quite a surprise this brand new three tracker on the Sneaker Social Club label is. Etch and Nico Lindsay are taking Grime and Grime riddims to a next level, adding a certain complexity to the breaks that seemed to be lost since the days of Broken Beat / West London Phusion on the A-side whilst the flip is operating on a dry, minimalistic level. Highly interesting cuts for all them advanced DJ's out there.

04. P.T.B.S. & Sascha Müller - Rebels [Urbangrooves Records]

05. Ruby My Dear - Phlegm EP [Analogical Force 022]
Coloured vinyl seems to be the shit these days and therefore Ruby My Dear delivers his fresh EP release on a limited purple print run, bringing forth a selection of five hyper excellent cuts meandering in between IDM, GlitchRave, Electronica and twisted Breakcore that will make you forget the majority of Aphex Twin / AFX releases of the past two decades within seconds. This is pure musical genius and a must have addition for every advanced collection of electronic music.

06. Various Artists [Destroy Oh Boy 003]
Sum, Supa Ape and Aaron Spectre make up the listing for this excellent four track 12" on blue vinyl which surely covers the whole spectrum of the genre from raw, classic GangstaJungle referencing tunes to high speed breaks and rugged DarkJungle for the darkest hours on the dancefloor.

07. Sandy B - Qhum Qhaks [Vumbuka Records]
South African Kwaito legend Sandy B teams up with Danish producer Simon Lundsgaard for a new album release and it's a massive one. The seven tracks on here fully reveal the magic of classic Kwaito with all its deep lo-fidelity, ClubHouse referencing bass synths, stripped down, yet seductive downtempo 4/4 grooves and interesting vocalisms meandering between singing and a twisted form of local rapping that  make up for a perfect introduction to a genre still widely unrecognized in Western countries.

08. Jimmy J & Cru-L-T - Six Days Remixes [Remix Records]
Happy Hardcore? Yes, please! Jimmy J & Cru-L-T's "Six Days" has been one of the big anthems back in 1994 and still didn't lose any of it's fascination for an oldskool raver like me. A proper banger, this, with the so-called 'Al Storms 1999 Remix' being our favorite cut on this 12". 

09. Kedr Livanskiy - Your Need [2MR]

10. Monsta - III [Opa Loka Records 019]
